perfect family rental!
This was a perfect rental for our family of 4! The house was clean, perfectly situated near Pelican Beach and the pool was absolutely awesome! The wrap around porch was perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach, and the landscaping provided a tranquil and private setting that made us feel like we were the only ones in Leeward. Betty was great! She met us at the airport to guide us to Columbus Cottage, gave us a tour of the property and important information about the cottage and caretakers (whom we only saw once and were kind and professional). Truly a wonderful spot and we would definitely spend another vacation at Columbus Cottage!
Thank you for sharing this gem!
Thank you for your lovely review, and I am SO pleased you enjoyed Columbus Cottage as much as we do! The close proximity to the best beach in the world is certainly a great bonus, and the Leeward area is quiet and special. Hopefully see you again next year.
Best wishes, Stephen and Jane
Beyond our expectations
The pictures of the property do not do it justice. The porch area is much larger than it seems in the pictures and the pool area was wonderful. We wanted a quiet place to enjoy time as a family. While we enjoyed the island, we did cook many meals at the house. I am glad that we decided to stay at this property and would recommend it to others looking to visit the island.
Thank you for posting your review, and yes, everyone says it is larger and better than the photos show! Its privacy and large garden area with pool are special. Hope to see you again.
Best wishes, Stephen and Jane
This is the second time our family has rented Columbus Cottage. Lovely, very private pool area and a very short walk to what in our opinion is the best beach on the island. The kitchen is very well-equipped. Comfortable accommodations. Property manager is very responsive if you have any questions.
Thank you Barb and family for your review. Agree, it's the best beach around! Thrilled you are already making arrangements to come back next year.

Spring Break Getaway
Beautiful property - loved all of the garden and the pool area. Great location if you don't want the crowds of Grace Bay but close enough to get there. Enjoyed sampling the wealth of restaurants once we got the hang of driving! The house was perfectly equipped with every kitchen gadget, beach equipment, and linens. Thank you for your hospitality.
You are so right, you have the uniqueness of Grace Bay Beach (the best in the world, apparently) without too many people. The position of Columbus Cottage is one of its strengths, and the large garden and pool area are always much enjoyed and commented on.
Hopefully you will return, we get several 'repeats'.

Cozy cottage with easy short drive/walk to beach. Close to shops and restaurants. Marina right down road for cruises. Loved having a pool to cool off after beach. Very secluded. Perfect vacation!
Thank you for your review, and we are so glad you enjoyed your holiday at our property. We and our family love it too, and have owned and tended to it for 18 years now! Come back again; we get alot of 'repeats' Stephen and Jane.
The Leeward cottage provides a quiet, peaceful stay on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The veranda is a nice breezy outdoor experience. We enjoyed eating our meals outside without the hassle of bugs. We enjoyed the pool and at night we could kick back and view the stars. A wonderful relaxing getaway if you want to get away from it all. Jane will provide all the information and answer your questions promptly. Betty met us at airport and was also helpful. Thank you Jane for the bottle of wine! We booked the trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary and also my son's high school graduation. A good choice!
So glad you enjoyed Columbus as much as we do. We found it seventeen years ago, and still love it. That beach is special. Come back again.
Best wishes, Stephen and Jane.
