About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

This charming hillside home is located in Rainbow Bay, directly across from the beautiful & secluded Rainbow Bay beach, Eleuthera. This private and fully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage is situated on 1/3 acre of land surrounded by lush and mature island vegetation with beautiful sea views from the large verandah. The cottage has central air-conditioning and satellite TV, landline phone, a cozy living room, dine-in kitchen and an outdoor shower.

Key Lime Cottage is ideal for families, couples and honeymooners, and is situated literally across the small road (a minute's walk) from Rainbow Bay's private beach. The beach itself offers sparkling white sand and crystal clear azure waters perfect for shelling, snorkeling and fishing and is a naturally protected cove. Convenient picnic benches, secluded tiki huts on the beach are included as part of the rental. Rainbow Bay also has a private tennis court.

Rainbow Bay offers one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. From the above pictures you can see a small peninsula which juts out into the Caribbean. It is home to many of the island's tropical fish and rays. If you are a snorkeler, you will not be disappointed. From Key Lime cottage, you also have easy access to the Atlantic Ocean beaches.

It is just a mile to the acclaimed Rainbow Inn, which offers some of the best food on the island and live music many evenings. The nearest market for supplies is located just a few minutes away by car if you choose to cook at home in the fully-equipped kitchen. There is also now an organic vegetable farm five minutes to the north from the villa.

Centrally located on Eleuthera, Key Lime cottage is the is the perfect location for exploring the whole island north to south, from Harbor Island to Lighthouse Point, 100 miles of beaches, beauty and history. It is only 15 minutes from Governor's Harbor airport and 25 minutes from Governor's Harbor.

Eleuthera is a very friendly and safe island. It is a beautiful, relaxed destination with turquoise seas, and beautiful sunny weather. Once you come, you will definitely want to return.

Reviewer Comments:

Eleuthra is beautiful with many great beaches and good eateries. Harbour Island and Spanish Wells made for a lovely excursion You really need a car as getting around for us was difficult because we had no vehicle but relied on a friend to drive us.

Owner's Response: Here are the additional comments this guest asked me to post: Key Lime was a lovely very clean cottage close to the ocean just across the street. It was extremely quiet, and had many towels and other amenities like an iron beach chair which came in handy. Really nicely equipped!! Brenda Stubbs was very easy to reach when there were questions. I highly recommend this cottage.

House was comfortable, beds were fine, really nice deck that had an ocean view. The caretakers were really nice. The only thing we wished they provided were beach chairs. Unfortunately there were none...

Since we arrived at Key Lime Cottage everything was perfect, clean and well maintained. The manager was very easy to deal with and answered all of our questions. We would definitely recommend this home.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Our family went for a week for Christmas and it was wonderful. The photos are accurate and the house is well appointed. The beach is fantastic and can be seen from the front porch (it is a 30 second walk down the driveway to get to it). The beach itself is very calm and clear. As the island itself is sparsely populated the beach is never very crowded (all beaches on the island are considered "public"). The rental agents and owner were very helpful in getting us set up. The only thing that didn't work was the phone and wifi because of some wider area problem. But .. it didn't really matter because we were at the beach the whole time anyway.

Rainbow Bay

  • 4 of 5

Key Lime cottage is located perfectly on the island and the photographs of the house are accurate. The property is clean and well maintained. Sit on the front porch at night and listen to the waves crashing on the Atlantic side of the island. The beach is just a quick stroll right out the front door, beach is great (recommend water shoes due to some rocks), beach was often empty especially in the mornings so grab a picnic table, mini-palapa and claim your space on the beach. I only had one need (hair dryer) which was delivered the next day. All amenities worked and it was nice to go home with clean clothes. Don't try and visit Eleuthera without a vehicle, besides there is just too much to explore. Management gave an excellent referral and I was picked up at the airport. In the end, I really enjoyed the location of Key Lime cottage relative to the rest of the island. All emails before, during and after were very prompt, management gave an excellent overview/info on the island, the pricing was reasonable and I would recommend this property. Thanks to Kristin and Tara for all their help and follow ups!

Great beach stay!!

We needed an extra house for my large family and this rental was perfect! It was walking distance to one of our favorite beaches, Rainbow beach, and was cute and comfortable inside.
