Coral Reef Villa is on the Atlantic side with a stunning ocean view, you may watch the cruise ships go by nightly. Steps from Smuggler's beach, and walking distance to Hidden Beach, Twin Beach and Rainbow beach. Many mature coconut trees and a nice ocean breeze make this secluded yet centrally located lot prime for your vacation. As summer approaches you will appreciate this breezy location.

Adjacent, identical unit available for rent is perfect for multiple families or bringing the In-laws! .

We are located on Ocean Drive a great Ocean view street perfect for morning jogs, walks, or bike rides. We have no immediate neighbors and therefore peace and quiet abounds.

It really is the perfect location for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon in a tropical paradise, or for families to explore the many deserted pink and white sand beaches.

Our local caretaker will pick you up at the airport and act as a point of contact for any needs you may have while visiting. He is also capable of providing a rental car.

Why the Owner Chose Rainbow Bay: We chose to purchase this property because of the location. We have a little elevation so the view of the Ocean is magnificent. The ocean breeze is very welcome almost all year round. With open windows you can hear the waves hitting the beach - very relaxing. It is safe, it is quiet, and it is centered on the island so going north or south is not inconvenient. Arrival at either Governors Harbor or North Eleuthera airports give you more travel options.

The Unique Benefits at this House

Some of the unique benefits of staying in our home include a perfect area for scenic jogs, bike rides on our bikes or morning walks. Ocean Drive is an elevated road right on the Atlantic Ocean. The most beautiful walk on the island! The perfect background for a cook out, the Public Beach by the house is an ideal back drop for family photos or even a wedding.

Battered Coral Reef

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this house on a recent trip to Eleuthera. The owner made a scheduling mistake that caused us to stay somewhere else for half of our stay. He was very apologetic about the snafu and even reimbursed us much of the expense to compensate for the extra we had to pay last minute somewhere else. He was also very helpful with recommendations, etc.

The house left a little to be desired.

The good: it had an ocean view, was close to a few nice beaches, and also had wifi and sattelite tv. There was a full kitchen and the kitchen was clean.

The not-so-good: the wifi was spotty (like much of the island). The house was definitely run down. I'm sure it's hard to keep up a house on an island with the salt water and sand, but as a traveller and as a guest house owner, I expect the pictures and description to reflect the current state of the property.

the caretaker had to come and fix the outdoor light which didn't work and, when not in order, made for a very dangerous stairwell but his fix was just a bulb hanging from wires which looked unsafe.

The ad says there are bikes on the property, but the caretaker said that they long ago rusted out. The master bedroom does not look like the pictures, but instead is much more basic bed and sheets and a cover. the mattress and sheets are old and not too comfy.

The bathrooms were literally falling apart with cracks and rust on nearly everything.

There are towels, but most are threadbare.

it was nice to sit on the balcony at night and listen to the waves, but the balcony itself was crumbling. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans but most were far beyond scratched and dented.

All in all a very basic place to stay on eleuthera. The island itself is fun and the owner of the house was very communicative, but it seemed to us like this investment might have been much more upkeep than these owners wanted or are able to keep up with.

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate the reviews for our property. In response to this review "active travelling couple" did not know that at the time of their stay my husband was fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer. From January 2014 until his death May 30th, 2016 he fought to stay alive and tried to keep up his daily schedule. However, during this time the last thing on our minds was a property in the Bahamas. Our house was and is clean, now has new bedding, and updated paint since this review. However, everyone who visits Eleuthera should know it is a remote island. Wifi, electricity, and even water are some days a luxury. This is truly an island to go and get away from the rat race of life.
