About Ken and Adele Holtermann

Retired from Transportation Bussiness in New Jersey who came to Eleuthera 12 years ago .

The rest is history..loved the people and the peace of he island not to mention the beaches.

Decided to have villa built after much thought and planning in 2005 and then ken decided he needed something to keep him busy so he hired some local island men and constructed what is now the Pink Sand Cottage

I always wanted to be right on the water..knew the chances I was taking and said 'I'm doing this as you only go around once in life'

Many years of trucking the roads of the USA. I owned and operated a small trucking and transportation company

Adele worked many jobs but the biggest job was being the mom to our 3 sons

We are now blessed with two wonderful grandchildren Come visit Eleuthera and stay at our cottage

It is well maintained as we are on island. 5 to 6 months a year

Pink Sand Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent one week at the cottage. It was clean, quaint, and exactly as pictured on the website. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. It offered reading material and movies, if that is something you want. It is beautifully landscaped and provided much privacy. We saw only 1 person on the beach all week. The beach is very pretty and can be viewed from inside the house, on the porch, or from deck.

Pink Sand Cottage is a gem, and in a great location for exploring all of Eleuthera.

Very nice, very private, well maintianed.

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. My wife and I honeymooned there and didn't want to leave. The cottage is well kept and clean. It has everything 2 people need. The shower was a bit small, but there's a giant outdoor one.

The beach is very private. We saw people at a distance if at all. The last day there a family must have rented a property near by because we saw them down the beach. There were many days the beach was all yours.

Be advise the beach has some bad rocksin some places. So I would recommend some type of water shoe if you go into the ocean.

You should probably get a 4x4 rental to get to the cottage as it is down a "beach road". Besides going exploring is fun and the 4x4 will let you see the best part of the island.

We had a wonderful time!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for. taking the time to write a review As for the 4x4. I must disagree with you as a car is fine to come down our beach road and also you will pay an extra 20 per day for one. I feel it's not worth the extra money before the road to our cottage was paved almost 3/4 up it was a good idea but not our opinion however you guys are much younger than me. lol The indoor shower is not for 2 ( note for honeymooners ) but for one it's fine. :) We are very happy you are please with your stay and yes there are some spots that you will need water shoes to enter but also open areas where you can enter and exit the sea plus a great cove that's all sandy just south of the cottage about 300 yard All the come back to Eleuthera ......Ken

Amazingng relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

I hate to say we had sugh a great time at Pink Sand Cottage because I'm afraid the secret will get out! We loved the beach with all the great shells, miles of walking and crystal blue/green water. The wind was strong while we were there, but the sun deck allowed us to relax without being too cool.Loved the hammock, too. The bed is comfy, the kitchen is good, the bath is good and the island and people are AMAZING. It's not a fancy place r island but the perfect place to get away and relax. Definately want a car to go exploring the other beaches, grocery (which was good and we could find plenty of things we are used to), liquor and fishing. We will be back. I keep looking at the calendar to figure out when we can go back. Thanks for a great place to chill.

Perfect cottage on a perfect beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we weren't quite sure what to expect. We read the reviews of the Pink Sands Cottage and it sounded perfect for us - it was! The cottage itself is exactly what is described - it's well stocked, comfortable and right on the beach. We were lucky because Ken was available to us for questions, recommendations and anything else we needed. My advice is to listen to him regarding restaurants as his suggestions were spot on.

The beach itself was perfect - we rarely saw anyone and when we did, it was someone walking by. Ken provides several beach chairs, towels, snorkeling equipment and even a small library of books so all we needed was sunscreen and bug spray (no-see-ums are my only complaint but the bug spray worked).

We will be going back next year as this was the most relaxing vacation we've had. We both love the beach and have been to many different Caribbean locales but this was hands down the most peaceful!

Thank you Ken and Adele - we'll see you next year!

What a great week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week at the Pink Sand Cottage. We had everything we needed. Could not believe how well stocked it was. Very cozy but not cramped at all. Also a lot of outdoor sitting and very comfortable beach chairs. Ken is a trip and really knows everything about the island. Also this area of the island is so convenient with lots of restaurants and "take away" meals. Also easy drive to Rock Sound to the South and Harbor Island to the North. We did do a lot of cooking in the well equipped kitchen too. The beach out front is one of the nicest beaches we have ever been to. (and we have been to lots of beaches!) The only mistake we made was not staying there for our second week. We rented another home in Gregorytown but it was no match for Pink Sand Cottage. Very friendly people and interesting island. Thank you Ken for an unforgettable and wonderful week in your lovely home! If we ever make it back, your cottage is the place we will stay!

Great crib! Superb location! Hard to beat!

Cottage is very clean and well equipped, and it is very apparent that the owner is striving to make sure that your stay will be a total blast.

Care taker on site is very professional and responsive.

We will definitely come back.

Nearest Beach
You are right on the beach
Car: recommended

The Pink Sand Cottage is located on the Banks Road ( Atlantic Side of the island) in North Palmetto Point ( Centrally Located)

The Pink Sand Cottage is close to Grocery stores in North Palmetto point just 2 miles to town and the better restaurants in central Eleuthera are all in a 5 mile radius of the cottage .

The Island Farm is only 2 miles from the Cottage where you can buy fresh local produce, fresh herbs & salad dressings ,etc and in the reg season Nov through May they also have fresh made breads, rolls and breakfast buns ( um-um good) on Tuesdays and Fridays.

A new point of Interest is the new 'Leon Levy Botanical Garden' that opened in 2010 within 5 miles of the cottage

A new 2015 added restaurant is 1648 Located in Gov Harbour

We highly recommend this new location as well as The Buccaneer also in Gov Harbor and the new coffee shop The Perk in GH
