I grew up going to Cotton Bay and still cant believe my grandparents sold the house! I recently returned for the first time in 30+ years and stayed at Sanderling with my wife. Other than the fact that the golf course and the clubhouse are overgrown and unrecognizable, nothing has changed and I mean that in the very best way. Many of the people are still the same and if they have died its their children or grandchildren. The diving, fishing, hospitality and peace and quiet are all world class. We will be back early and often!!

My friends and I had a wonderful week at Sanderling. The house was designed for groups and entertaining. Four bedrooms are ocean-front, each with spectacular wake-up views. Ruth is an incredible chef and expertly cooks your daily catch, the fresh fish she procures, or what you buy at the store in Rock Sound. Her bread, muffins and desserts are delicious. Arrange to go fishing as much as you can. Sidney is a pleasant and experienced captain. We can't wait to go back!

The house is wonderfully situated on the ocean and lagoon. The pictures only begin to show this piece of paradise. The beach is lovely and uncrowded. Great walks,swimming, shelling and kayaking. Deep Sea fishing is available and good fun whether the fish and biting or not. Ruth is an added plus. She is a marvelous cook providing delicious meals each day.....One of the best meals was our fresh caught fish. Her desserts are a real treat. This is a perfect spot to get away, relax and enjoy tropical surroundings with friends.

Small piece of paradise

This home is wonderfully situated on a peninsula with ocean on one side and lagoon on the other. House has continual sea breezes making it very comfortable. It is huge and the pictures do not do it justice.
The highlight of this home is Ruth the cook and her friend Loretta. Nothing is too much for them. Ruth prepares three meals a day if you wish and they are always delicious and healthy - she makes a killer chocolate souffle and her key lime pie and her curries are to die for. Both of them also do daily housekeeping. Ruth has a huge personality and humor. She is a delight to be around.
Cotton Bay was obviously a vibrant area in its day but is now becoming very underpopulated and in places uncared for. The golf course does not exist any more and the tennis court is barely playable. There is world class diving about 20 minutes away and the snorkelling is good at many locations on the island. A car is a necessity as this home is about 20minutes from Rock Sound where there is a good but fairly over priced market. We advise taking as much food as you can from US.
This is a WONDERFUL vacation spot for peace and tranquility and just getting off the beaten track. The beach in front of the house is wild and rugged. Great for strolling on and swimmable in places. There are fabulous aquamarine blue sea beaches within a very short drive of the house.

This is the place to go if you truly want to get away from it all!!! To get away from the crowds, the noise, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life...to fully decompress and just relax. This magnificent place boasts a virtually private beach, amazing scenery on all sides, and incredibly comfortable accommodations. I can’t wait to return! Oh, and the cook is magnificent!

Breathtaking Pictures Undersell the Gorgeous Beauty of this Pristine Paradise

This was my third trip in Feb. 2010, and each time my blockbuster memories fade in comparison to how stunning this unspoiled, private Carribean beach is in real life. Cotton Bay was developed by the CEO of Pan Am in the hay day of his airline serving as the flag carrier for the US worldwide. After flying the globe to compare the most jaw-dropping resort locations, he and his wall street buddies chose Cotton Bay to develop their private resort, including a Robert Trent Jones golf course.

This remote location at the southern tip of Eleuthra, was strategically chosen since there is a narrow peninsula that provides nearly 360 degrees water views. The front patio sits about 25 feet above the calm, pristine, turquoise waters of the Caribbean; while the back patio overlooks the tidal bay where we enjoyed undisturbed water skiing.

The house is very comfortable and well appointed, and seems bigger than its 4 bedroom / 5 bath spec. sheet -- perhaps because it sprawls all on one level. Because of the continuous Carribean breezes, my wife and I slept with the sliders opened so sea breezes and surf sounds serenaded us to sleep each night.

Coming from the DC area, there is nonstop service to Nassau, with a short hop to Rock Sound, Eleuthera. It is worth the extra hop to return to this pristine paradise, and get to live for a week or two the dream of Juan Trippe and his jet-setting friends.

Paradise!

This gorgeous house is located on a peninsula at the end of a road, with water on 3 sides: a lagoon and the ocean. You can snorkel right off the beach or charter a boat at the nearby marina to take you to other snorkel/dive spots. You can also fish in the lagoon & ocean and there's tennis & golf just a short walk away. The house is super comfortable for a large group with large rooms to mingle in as well as cozy nooks to have some solo time. There is a constant breeze as the house doors open up so the breeze wafts from one side of the peninsula to the other. Ruth, the cook & housekeeper, is a gourmet chef and every meal was delicious, often with fresh local fish and vegetables or fruit from her personal garden. You'll want the recipe for her muffins and oatmeal cookies! We highly recommend this spot for a totally relaxing getaway. It really is a paradise! We'll be back!

A week at this house was a week in paradise...empty pink beaches, crystal clear water, coral reefs, privacy and Ruth. The setting is spectacular with water on three sides. The house is lovely, open and comfortable with many wonderful indoor and outdoor spots for reading, games or naps. We snorkeled, kayaked and walked the lovely beaches. Tennis was a short walk away. Scuba diving and fishing were available within a 15-20 minute drive. Ruth, the chef, stole our hearts! Her meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner) were absolutely incredible, but it was her enveloping warmth and humor that none of us will ever forget!

This house is PERFECT for a getaway with friends or family looking to spend time with one another. With its own semi-private beach (shared with about 6 other houses on the same road) it is extremely relaxing and particularly good for recharging batteries. To have housekeeping included just gives you more time to relax and Ruth, the cook, is worth the trip to Eleuthra alone. Being on a penninsula between the ocean and a lagoon allows for vews from every room. It is worth an extra flight to get to Eleuthra (one stop in Nassau or Ft Lauderdale) and you can really check out at this IDEAL location. If you are more of an adventurer, Tennis and Golf are a short walk plus a day trip to Harbor Island or Governor's Harbour are great options as well.

This is a beautiful property. It is the last in a line of vacation homes in the secluded and mostly undeveloped Cotton Bay Club area of Eleuthera. Basically, when you are there, you are there, and there is where you want to be. From swimming in the lagoon or ocean to very relaxed and unhurried golfing on the somewhat under-maintained but perfectly playable Robert Trent Jones golf course, to the excellent meals prepared by the lovely chef Ruth, this is a spot made for fun and relaxation. We went with a group of three families and had the best vacation in years. I highly recommend this choice.
