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 Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas

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! Warmly, Michael and Katy Broderick p.s. Be sure to…see a sunrise, see a sunset, see the stars at night, walk the beaches, explore, make new friends, read a good book, do absolutely nothing…return again to Eleuthera!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

We loved the upper balcony as several nights we awoke at 3:00 am to watch a sky filled with falling stars ! The cottage provided everything we needed - a special accodate to the owners for the great CD music selection - it inspired us to dance on many nights . Thank you to Anne for her assistance. We would recommend the Cottage to anyone that enjoys a constant ocean breeze - the ability to walk out the door and walk a spectacular beach .

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We arrived last week and were blown away but how stocked the home was already. Everything you would forget was already here, so helpful! The home was extremely clean and made it very easy to move in.

                                                                    We absolutely loved the poop deck to relax and the hammock was frequently used. There is no detail left unturned. We are so thankful for staying in such a beautiful home for this past week. Everyone was a pleasure to work with in our stay at Island Breeze and we both look forward to returning soon. Thank you for the PERFECT getaway!

                                                                    We are so happy that you had such a wonderful time! I think that the upstairs balcony...or poop deck :-) is my favorite place for coffee in the morning and a cocktail in the evening. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review and you know where to reach us when it's time to plan your next getaway!

                                                                    Stayed just befor hurricane Irma cut our trip short . Had what we needed in the cottage . Air conditioning worked well . Didn't really have time to cook but kitchen was adequate for any simple meal to prepare. Love having a washer and dryer to use , less clothes to pack . Wish we could have stayed our full 7 days , but Mother Nature sometimes gets in the way !

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Hope you were able to take care of business during your stay. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. So sorry you had to cut your trip short - we are so thankful that our beautiful Island was spared by both Irma and Maria.
