Once you rent our cozy cottage in Rainbow Bay on the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas you'll want to return to this island of natural beauty and warm, friendly people. Tranquil Seas is a comfy smoke-free cottage with Indonesian decor and bamboo matting on walls/ceilings, tiled countertops, Bali wood doors and bamboo trim. A separate laundry room is an added bonus that you don't find in many vacation homes on the island. We have completed lots of upgrades to the cottage that we know you will appreciate.
There is a master bedroom with full bath and walk-in closet at each end of the house providing privacy if you wish to share the cost with friends as well as a private outside shower. A queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room accommodates up to 6 persons in the home. Each bedroom has flat screen tv with dvd player. Flat screen in living room with dvd player and satellite programming. It is perfect for families or as a romantic getaway, Eleuthera is a wonderful place for couples because intimacy is easily obtained; no crowds, no noise. It's the perfect place to do as little or as much as you wish.
It is one of very few properties on the entire island with incredible panoramic views of both the Atlantic and the Caribbean side so you can sit on the front porch with your morning coffee and watch the sun rise and sit on the back porch in the evening with a frosty cold island drink and watch the sun set. Leave the sliding doors open in the bedrooms at night to catch the soft breeze, the sound of the surf, and see the cruise ships lit up in all of their glory cruising the Atlantic. Wake up to views of the sea without lifting your head off of the pillow. Gorgeous wide open water views from every room, you can see both seas at once from multiple rooms inside and outside.
Because of the close proximity of the ocean, cross breezes keep the cottage cool plus there are ceiling fans in each room and air conditioning for warm days/nights. Short walks will take you to beautiful picture-postcard secluded beaches, each with it's own unique beauty. No jet skiis, no vendors 'trolling' their wares to disturb you. Two sea kayaks are available for your unlimited use during your stay at no extra cost which is a big bonus since the kayak rental fee on the island is $30/hr.
The cottage is centrally located to enable you to explore more easily. There are quaint little shops to browse in and even a cinema showing the lastest films. You can rent a surfboard in Gregorytown and will also see a very good variety of sea life while snorkeling. The area south of Current cut is one of the best places for snorkeling/diving ever. It is not unusual to see stingrays, squid, spiney lobster, many parrot fish, angelfish as well as lionfish, turtles and dolphins. Eleuthera has the best beaches in the Bahamas and you may not see another person while enjoying the sand, surf and sun since Eleuthera has an abundance of them.

We are a couple in our 50's who live in the Northeast USA and who discovered Eleuthera and can't get enough of it.
We love this property because of the incredible views of the two totally different seas and it's proximity to the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen.
