Eleuthera, Key Lime Cottage is a fully-furnished two bedroom, two bath oceanview cottage with all the amenities needed for your comfort, including central air, satellite TV, telephone (internet service is planned to be added November or December 2013). The occupancy limit of this cottage is four guests, and this is a non-smoking home.
Key Lime Cottage is located directly across popular Rainbow Beach which is on the Caribbean side. This house is only one of a few vacation rentals near this lovely beach. Rainbow Bay Beach has beautiful turquoise waters and is excellent for swimming and snorkeling.
We have a wonderful local Caretaker who lives nearby and a friendly, reliable car rental resource (a car rental is recommended for the area).
Eleuthera is a laid-back island for those who want to escape the city, and is a great place to just relax and soak up the sun, or to just dine at one of the local restaurants. In the evening, enjoy the spectacular sunset.
How to Arrive to Eleuthera: Eleuthera has three airports, Governor's Harbour (GHB), North Eleuthera (ELH), and Rocksound (RSD). Most of our guests fly into Governor's Harbour (the closest) or North Eleuthera Airport (2nd closest).
American and United via Silver Airlines are only an hour's flight to Eleuthera from Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
From Nassau, Bahamas, you may take a 20 minute flight to Eleuthera via Bahamasair, Southern Air or Pineapple Air.
Bahamas Ferries has a ferry route from Nassau that arrives most daily to Spanish Wells to the north.
Transportation: Eleuthera is not a very populated island and is about 110 miles long and 2 miles wide at the widest point. Therefore, a car is highly recommended to get around the area to get to grocery stores, restaurants, beach-hopping, island exploring, tourist spots, etc.
Our Caretaker's friendly son rents out vehicles at a fair rate for the area, and for our guest's convenience, will generally pick up our guests at the airport and ride over with them to the Key Lime Cottage so our guests will know the directions on getting there.
Eleuthera Things to Do: We are fortunate to be so close to beautiful Caribbean Rainbow Bay Beach which is great for swimming & snorkeling. In addition, the Rainbow Bay area also has four other beaches on the Atlantic side nearby, and the island itself has miles of unspoiled beaches to experience.
Kayak rentals for your stay, fishing trips (bonefishing, deep sea, etc), snorkeling, diving excursions can be arranged. Just contact the owners or local caretaker and they will be happy to direct you.
Take a day trip north about 30 miles to either Harbour Island with Pink Sands Beach and tourist shops, or Spanish Wells - Russell Island, a fishing village with colorful homes and a beautiful beach.
Just steps across the street to what's considered by most as the best beach in Rainbow Bay.
