Welcome to our island paradise. This recently renovated and elegantly upgraded beach cottage is located in the quiet and serene area of Oleander Gardens just north of Gregory Town. Perched on a hill only steps from a peaceful cove, Bella Mare offers the ultimate in modern conveniences and some of the most beautiful scenery of the Bahamas. Take time out of your stressful lives and relax on our front porch. Enjoy the spectacular view of the Caribbean ocean and your worries will surely fade away.
A private beach is only 150 feet away so take time out to enjoy the sun and discover the wildlife while snorkeling in the cove.
Away from it all.: Eleuthera - From the ancient Greek word for freedom. Freedom is what you can expect when you visit Eleuthera. Freedom from work, stress, and the pressures of everyday life. This island is truly a paradise away from it all. You are far removed from the glitz and glamor of the casino's of Nassau and the hustle and bustle of the big city. Take your time and enjoy sleeping in, snorkeling in the cove or enjoy the sunset from the porch.
The Island.: Eleuthera offers 220 miles of coastline with countless sandy coves and isolated beaches with pure white and pink sands. The snorkeling and fishing are some of the best in the Bahamas. Bonefish can be caught by wading out in front of our house. Swimming and sunbathing are especially enjoyable activities due to the privacy of the many beaches. You can go to the beach and never spot another human being.
The Cottage.: The cottage has been lovingly upgraded and decorated by the owners. It features custom made furniture covers, cushions, and window treatments.
We snorkeled everyday, visited different beaches and explored the island. We loved Lighhouse beach with turquoise clear water and a great coral reef to snorkel. The locals are very friendly and helpful. Empty beaches wherever we went. A perfect place to enjoy a last week of summer before the winter season begins.
Oh Eleuthera, where should I begin on this review. Well it's pretty safe to start by saying this was our best family vacation yet. What an island! The beaches no matter where you go are so beautiful and empty that you would be surprised if you even saw footprints in the sand. I have been to a bunch of places in the carribean and Eleuthera was even more amazing. The people on the island were all too kind and welcoming to us. The house was perfect for us. It was a lovely house and very spacious. The house had everything you needed for you in a very thoughtful approach. Music, Movies, Family Games and all the kitchen appliances you would need to make you feel at home. The views, beaches, house and kindness of everyone truly made this an unbelievable experience for us.
What a gem! Great location. Per was excellent to work with. The house is decorated with love and attention, well maintained and stocked. We will not hesitate to book again and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Bella Mare is one of the most unique and beautiful get a way locations you will find on the Island of Eleuthera. The owners have taken the time and expense to make sure your visit is one that you will want to come back time and time again.The neighbors and Island people are all so friendly and the owners diary make sure you know how to find all the right places to enjoy the food, history and culture of the Island. We look forward to spending many more wonderful days at Bella Mare.
We could not have asked for a better accommodation on Eleuthera. The location was ideal as we had access to both Governor's Harbour and Harbour Island, but at the same time the cottage location was quiet and peaceful. There are countless beaches nearby, which are easy to access. We were able to relax, snorkel and fly fish on a daily basis. At night, there are a few restaurant options within easy driving distance such as Rainbow Inn, The Cove and Laughing Lizard. However, we preferred to eat in most nights as the kitchen offers all the appliances one would need to prepare a nice meal. The beach across the street was perfect for snorkeling or a quick swim but a bit rocky for walking or lounging. The house itself was in great condition and the front porch was tough to beat with a cup of coffee in the morning. Great view! Overall, Belle Marre is an excellent option for those looking to truly relax within in their own comforts yet have access to beaches, restaurants and towns. - Dan
We enjoyed our stay at Belle Mare immensely. The owners have taken great care in making everyone's stay quite beautiful and comfortable.Everything we hoped for and more. We would love to return one day!
The cottage was charming, comfortable and spacious enough for our family of five. Although the beach across the street is rocky, it has excellent snorkeling -- in fact, the best we found anywhere on Eleuthera. It's also easy to get to sandy beaches nearby. We loved the sunsets from the front porch and the incredibly starry night sky.
Quiet serene area of Oleander Gardens. Very close to Gregory Town with its renowned Pineapple Festival. Only 1.5 miles from Lovers Beach, Twin Sisters beach, Gaulding Cay, Queen's bath and the world famous Glass window bridge. We are located next door to the very upscale resort The Cove.
