Cotton & CoConuts is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath home located on Lookout Road in Rainbow Bay. The view looks out over the Atlantic Ocean. The house is a 2-minute walk to Come N Go Beach. Steps leading up to a screened lanai invite you to the front entrance. Entering the home, the focal point is the spiral staircase to the cupola, which has spectacular views of the North Atlantic. This luxurious home has tile throughout and mini-split a/c units in the main area and in every bedroom. Bedrooms include a master bedroom with a king-size Tempur-Pedic mattress complete with en suite, 2nd bedroom is a queen pillow top ,3rd bedroom is a full size pillow top. Decorated with Island flair, this beautiful home is furnished with all the conveniences. The living area has queen size sofa bed with a 4" memory foam topper, flat-screen TV with satellite connection, wireless internet, and a docking station for your personal ipod.

The modern chef's kitchen has a granite island with 4 swivel bar chairs. Stainless Steel appliances in the kitchen include a French door refrigerator with water/ice maker on front, a ceramic stove top/oven with hood microwave, and dishwasher. The dining area features a 60' glass table with 4 comfortable chairs. Another high top dining table with 4 chairs is located on the screened lanai.

There is an Island shower with hot and cold outside on the ground floor for your convenience on returning from the beach.

Located on the first floor is the laundry room, where the 1/2 bath is located, as well as brand new stacked Maytag washer and dryer with utility sink.

THIS IS NOT THE TYPICAL ELEUTHERA 'CAMP OUT' TYPE PLACE WITH A MUSKY SMELL, HODGE PODGE FURNISHINGS,SOME THINGS WORK SOME DON'T, SHARE IT WITH THE LOCAL ANTS AND SUCH STYLE PLACE. WE TAKE GREAT PRIDE AND PLEASURE IN SHARING OUR ISLAND DREAM HOME WITH YOU. PLEASE ENJOY AND RESPECT IT. MANY THANKS.

Our water is collected and purified through an advanced closed cistern filtration/uv light system. Each faucet throughout the house is connected to this system. If water levels are ever low(never have been) in the cistern, we are connected to the Queens Hwy water, which also will flow through our specialized filtered system. This is a paramount solution to having fresh safe water on an island.

Within walking distance is Come N Go Beach, you can easily carry what you need for the day. On more adventurous days, when heading out, there are several beaches in the neighborhood of Rainbow Bay: Hidden Beach, Smugglers Beach, Twin Beach and Rainbow Bay Beach just to mention a few. There are 4 mountain bikes at the house, great for accessing local sights and beaches.

Amenities include air conditioning, WIFI, satellite TV, DVD player with video library, an outdoor gas grill. Equipment in the house includes snorkel gear, beach chairs, fishing rods and some tackle, cooler, and mountain bikes.

If you are looking for a smaller place for just the two of you, check out Sun Terrace (Top of the World!)#382731 on VRBO or #3001727 on Home Away. It's only a few blocks away and is great for just a couple(very private sun deck with shower).

About Matthew Simon and Kristin Tornow

We purchased a lot and built our dream home on Eleuthera completed in April 2010. We travel back and forth from Southwest Florida as frequently as possible, staying for 3 months in the summer. Eleuthera is that Peacefull Paradise we long for. When we cannot be there we want others to be able to experience and make there own memories on this incredible island. So look no farther, we invite you to spend time at our house.

Great house, good location.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 10 nights. House has a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, great fridge, microwave etc. Plenty cutlery and crockery, glasses, cups etc. Beach towels and towels were also provided as well as toiletpaper, dishwasher tablets, detergent, trash bags. Rainbow beach is very close by and is a nice small beach with shallow waters. TV worked fine, many channels to choose from. Governor's harbour is about 15 miles from the property.

Wifi proved to be unreliable, could often not connect mainly in the evening and weekends, probably because these were peak times and the island network was overloaded. One day there was a power failure on the island and we had no power and water (water supply runs on a pump system) for 4 or 5 hours.

Overall we had a good stay and would certainly stay here again.

Wonderful and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cotton and Coconuts is a beautiful, very clean home and has everything you need. It is 25 minutes from Governor's Harbor. At Governor's Harbor you can purchase fresh fish right from the dock. The beaches are beautiful, especially Lighthouse Pt Beach. It is a rough, rough road for the last 3 miles so I would recommend renting a 4 wheel drive. For a local flavor, eat at Kel D's in James Systern and Brenda and Bill's barbeque. You can get a lobster roll for $10!! Make sure you visit Harbor Is and eat somewhere along the pink sand beach - absolutely beautiful. If you have more than a week, make sure you check out Spanish Wells. The Friday night fish fry in Governor's Harbor was a lot of fun. The locals are extremely friendly. Our group had a wonderful time and very happy we chose to stay at Cotton and Coconuts.

Loved Cotton and Coconuts!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and comfortable with a spacious open-flow layout. It had all the amenities we wanted and more. The owners were very pleasant and there to assist us with anything we needed. I would definitely go back and recommend this to anyone wanting the feel of a home away from home!

Pretty house on a quiet street

  • 3 of 5

The house is very nice and quiet. It had everything we needed. We were one of two couples and we had plenty of room. I will say that I dont think it is safe for young children with the stairs. If you arent looking it would be easy for a young child to fall from the main floor downstairs. The spiral stairs going down are a little scary as it was hard holding laundry and also holding on to the stairs. I think it should be more child safe. We could walk to the beach but its very rocky there at that beach. Overall it was a nice relaxing home.

Maison et île de rêve - Bahamazing!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons tout simplement passé une magnifique semaine sur cette île paradisiaque, et c'est peu dire !

Que ce soit la maison ou le propriétaire nous ne pouvons avoir aucun commentaire négatif. Sam et son équipe ont toujours été présents à la moindre question. La maison en elle-même est parfaite pour 6 personnes (nous étions 3 couples), très propre avec touts les équipements nécessaires. La cuisine est même mieux équipée que la mienne alors que c'est un point important pour moi. Bref, si vous devez louer une maison à North Eleuthera, ne cherchez plus vous venez de la trouver !

Merci encore à Sam et toutes les personnes qui nous ont rendu des services pour améliorer notre séjour.

There is nothing to say about this home, it is just perfect. If you are still looking for something to rent, you should stop right now you have found it! All amenities are included, very clean house, AC in each room and one for the dining room. You even have 6 full kits for snorkeling, stick fishes and so on.

If you have any questions you will be answered in no time so why are you still looking for a rental?

Thanks Sam!

Alex

Cotton and Coconuts is the PERFECT island home!

  • 5 of 5

I truly cannot say enough about this home or its owner Sam. The house itself is wonderful. It is beautifully decorated, clean and has all the amenities anyone would need. Each bedroom has its own air conditioning unit that is programmable, so each person/couple can adjust as they want to be comfortable. Having wireless internet and the MJ phone to call the states was also a big bonus. I traveled here with a group of friends and some were needing to call/Skype home daily to touch base with their kids/family. There was also plenty of snorkeling equipment, which came in really handy when we had a few of our own masks malfunction.

Sam (owner) and Mike (caretaker) were very friendly and helpful. One of my friends became ill and required a visit to the clinic. Sam and Mike were instrumental in coordinating her visit, especially since it happened over the weekend. We also had a rain storm that knocked out the power, but Sam came straight over and hooked up the generator.

I would recommend this home to anyone! We had a group of 6 and it was perfect. The whole experience was great. Julianna and Tara, who manage the property, were also very attentive and swiftly respond to any inquiries. I will DEFINITELY be staying here again (and again, and again....)!

Sea glass has become quite the thing in jewelry and Come & Go is one of the best sources you will ever see !!!! We have a lot of gear for snorkeling and surfboards and kayaks are available in Gregory town. Hatchet Bay Caves offer over a mile of exploring with great formations and a cool break if you get too much Sun.
