About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2

Welcome to The Cottage at Island Breeze - an ideal romantic hideaway for a peaceful island vacation. This two-story Bahamas beach house is located on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera near the quaint settlement of North Palmetto Point. A sandy pathway from the cottage leads to a dune deck overlooking a private white and pink sand beach, making it a delightful spot for your morning coffee. Enjoy snorkeling and swimming in the calm turquoise waters teeming with coral reefs and vibrant tropical fish. Or explore the beach for an assortment of exotic shells, sea glass, and the elusive sea beans that float over from Africa and are rumored to bring good luck to their finder. You can also spend time relaxing on the large rear deck of the house watching the herons, egrets, and osprey frolic in a salt water lake.

A fully equipped kitchen awaits you along with all the comforts you would expect in your own vacation home. The cottage is fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans throughout, comfortable furniture, a full bathroom downstairs, 1/2 bath in the loft and an outside shower. The loft bedroom opens up to a spacious deck where you can savor a luscious sunset and let the sound of the breaking waves caress you to sleep in your king-size bed. Linens, bath and beach towels, beach chairs, shampoo and body wash are all provided.

Why Amy Zalinsky chose Eleuthera

Our first visit to Eleuthera was in 1992. We fell in love with the breathtaking beauty and warm welcoming residents. We knew that Eleuthera was a very special untouched island, and we are excited to open our home to you. We wish you a visit that is filled with much love, laughter, and beautiful memories.

From our family to yours – Welcome to Eleuthera!

Lovely cottage on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in the cottage. It's comfortable, clean and well appointed. The view and the beach are wonderful. Communication with the managers ahead of time and once I was on the island was easy. Overall a great spot for a relaxing week.

Amazing get away! Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

2 of us on a romantic get away, the Cottage was perfect space, lofted balcony to see all shooting stars. Own private beach just feet away. Most people dream of a place like this. Never seen water so clear to dive or snorkel in your front yard. See you again soon!

Wonderful Stay at Island Breeze

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this cute little house adjacent to the beach. It was private and quiet. The beach was lovely. We appreciated the beach chairs, cooler and umbrella that were provided as we headed out everyday to a different spot on the island. Overall, we would recommend Island Breeze for a couple who want a peaceful and serene place to relax on their vacation.

Lovely island cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 night at the Cottage at Island Breeze. It was just as described and perfect for 2 people. Very comfortable and well equipped. It is far enough off the beaten path to feel alone, yet not too far into town for shops and restaurants. We LOVED the deck off the 2nd floor bedroom for morning coffee and evening star gazing. Eleuthera beaches were amazing - one of the best is Poponi just up the road from the cottage. The snorkeling equipment was nice for a couple of newbies like us. Definitely stop in Governor's Harbor on your way through to pick up drinking water and food supplies because you may not want to leave the cottage once you get there!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. We are always happy to hear when our guests have discovered new spots on the island to explore and don't you just love that upper deck?! Hope you'll come back and visit again soon.

Pretty Perfect

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking at this rental, that means you've already made the very good decision to visit Eleuthera. Booking it will be another very good decision. With accommodation prices rising all over the island, it is wonderful to have a lovely option for couples at such a reasonable price point. We got everything we could have possibly wanted in this cottage without having to pay for extra space just to get a nice place and some privacy. It's a quiet road with very little traffic...maybe 4-6 cars passed by per day. We saw only a few people each day on the beach. We highly recommend getting a 4-wheel drive rental because there are some beautiful and truly secluded beaches further down the road...but it gets a bit rough. The house and grounds are pristine and immaculately kept. It's beautifully furnished. Just about everything was in fine working order, and we found all possible equipment and supplies to be provided. The view from the bed upstairs was a joy each morning, as was morning coffee on the veranda. The view from the deck at the steps to the beach was amazing and we enjoyed the hammock there. The beach itself was very nice, though there is rock/coral at all possible entry points to the water, so beach/water shoes would be a good idea as it can be a bit treacherous. But such conditions do make for excellent snorkeling, which we did a lot of. Unfortunately, the wifi was not working most of the time. We let the caretaker know when we arrived, and she had BTC out there right away, but the solution did not last long and we had two very brief periods where it came back up for about 15 minutes and then would go back down. We did not seek repair again after the first time. While we had hoped to be able to keep contact with our small children who were traveling with their grandparents, we don't really mind being unplugged on vacation. And understand that this is a not a problem unique to this house, as wifi can be unreliable all over the island. All in all, it was a lovely experience and I do think we would return to this house.

Abolutely delightful. As advertised and more. A beautiful haven on a tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent a wonderful 10 days in the Island Breeze Cottage in late March 2016. We had an absolutely delightful time on Eleuthera and the Cottage was a big part of that! As a former contractor one of the first things I noticed was the excellent and substantial construction. It is beautiful, totally functional and had amenities that really enhanced our stay. The location on a very quiet little sand road maybe 50 feet from the stairway down to one of Eleuthera’s most beautiful beaches seemed to us to be ideal. Central on the island, close to shopping, restaurants and such an oasis when we’d return home each day. We had rented a jeep wrangler from an agency suggested by the Cottage contacts and that for us was perfect as we explored many of sandy, bushy roads to beaches we almost always had to ourselves. The outside shower on the deck allowed us to wash the sand off ourselves and our gear (we snorkeled 9 out of our 10 days). The door off the deck goes right to the washer and dryer which were great to have. The downstairs bathroom has a beautiful tiled shower stall & we never ran out of wonderful hot water. The kitchen appliances and cooking utensils are quite complete. A CD player and wireless internet were appreciated. There is a local cell phone provided with a request that renters replace the minutes before they leave. The furnishings are really lovely, just as pictured. The upstairs loft has a very comfortable king bed and to our delight there is a 2nd sink and toilet up there as well. To lay in bed watching the waving palm trees and listening to the surf is as restful and calming as can be imagined. The photos are accurate, this is a Cottage designed for two people who will be sharing the bed, it’s both very romantic and comfortable. The loft bedroom french doors open to a deck with a truly spectacular view up & down one of the best beaches on Eleuthera. Perfect for sunbathing! There is a loft ceiling fan (and non-opening skylight) and 2 more fans down stairs. There is AC both upstairs & down, but our temperatures were in the 70’s so we didn’t use it. With ample windows, screen doors & the 3 ceiling fans we were able to easily keep the Cottage comfortable. There were beautiful blooming plants in all directions. We had brought a book with us which gave invaluable information on Eleuthera’s amazing beaches, 135 of them! Buy and study that before you go. We also brought a GPS which proved very helpful when exploring. Enchanting Visit!
