About Ken and Adele Holtermann

We personally built the cottage along with a few islanders

I Retired from Transportation Business in New Jersey and came to Eleuthera 15 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

Please see our guests feedback...

We love this cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Pink Sand Cottage and we loved it even more than our first stay. It is great to be able to just walk down the steps to the beach whenever you feel like it and it is a rare occasion (in off season) when you actually meet anyone else on this miles-long gorgeous pink sand beach. We find the central location gives us easy access to all of the rest of Eleuthera and there are plenty of shops and restaurants within a few minutes drive even though the cottage is in a very secluded location a couple of miles down Banks road from North Palmetto Point. Should there be any problems Ken and the housekeeper Sue are quick to respond. Problems here are a relative term, however, spend an evening on the porch listening to the surf and watching the myriad stars come out while the cruise ships sail off on the horizon and all the problems in the world simply melt away. The worst part about staying here is you eventually have to leave, but that gives you something to look forward to....the day when you can return.

Secluded island getaway steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This little beach cottage was the perfect secluded spot on the Atlantic side of this sweet island community. It had a well-stocked kitchen, a large bathroom, and the perfect porch and separate deck for ocean viewing and star-gazing. The local caretaker is a gem who helped us lease a car, fix a tepid fridge and give us advice. The house is two miles down a rustic road so a car is a must. Local stores are close for snacks and light breakfasts. Many cafes and restaurants are nearby for conch salad, conch fritters, and cracked conch. So great! Also eat a lot of lobster! It's the perfect location to be close to tasty food and what you need but also for secluded reading, snorkeling and just being.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Pink Sand Cottage. You won't find another home that stands closer to the water! The cottage is cute, clean, and has everything one might need. Beautiful front porch to enjoy your meals, well-equipped kitchen for cooking. Coral reef is right there too with beautiful fish, warm water, and pink sand. Hope to be back one day!

Ideal place for a couple that loves the ocean and beach.

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable, relaxing place. The house has all the conveniences , there were no other people on the beach during our stay, and the ocean warm and fun to either bask in or spear fish....large trigger fish 150 yards from shore. Really a great place to stay if looking for peace and quiet, ocean sounds not withstanding of course. I recommend it!

Beauty, seclusion and awesome snorkeling!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at the Pink Sand Cottage - the setting is gorgeous and very private, and after exploring other snorkeling spots on the island, we came to the conclusion that we have one of the best reefs right where we were! We snorkeled several times a day, took walks on the beach, sat in the beach chair with a book (or on the porch, or sun deck, or in the hammock under the palm trees) - ultimate vacation experience. A 5-star resort would not have provided such level of bliss!

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
