Sea Turtle Cottage - an outstanding vacation property, decorated fittingly for a Caribbean escape with gorgeous sea views and immediate water absolute gem in Rainbow Bay!

We stayed here for 10 days, enjoying the immense sun and beautiful sunsets. The house was the absolute perfect layout for our family of four, plus my parents. Each couple enjoyed their king bed suites, while the kids loved their loft sleeping arrangements. We enjoyed breakfast in the Tiki Hut, the afternoon sun on the lounge chairs, and even a sunset in the kayak. We would spend hours watching the water from the banks, enjoying a manatee, stingrays and a variety of fish. The house has everything you can imagine to make your vacation enjoyable; extra snorkel gear, floating chairs, lots of beach towels, board games, movies, the list is endless. The house was in immaculate condition, extremely clean on our arrival and the grounds well tended. We loved its close proximity to Rainbow Bay Beach (approx. 5 minute walk) and thoroughly enjoyed the immediate water access using the stairs on the property.

Sandi, has been the most excellent host. It always felt as if she wanted to ensure a wonderful vacation for our family. We have had numerous conversations leading up to our stay, she accommodated all of our needs and request. She was always prompt with her responses.

We would hands down recommend this property to our friends and family, and in fact have already done will not be disappointed.

Home from our 2nd Visit

  • 5 of 5

A year has passed since our last stay at Sea Turtle Cottage. The cottage is still immaculately clean, even more finely decorated, and very comfortable. Having a fully accessorized, modern kitchen, comfortable bedding, and the Caribbean outside your door make us wish to return again and again. There are endless changes in the waters and we could see large fish in the sea from the short distance to the living room or kitchen. We cannot recommend this home higher and hold it in our little list of Treasured Places. If you love everything Eleuthera is, your stay at this home will embellish your vacation.

Ken and Sandi Jackson are the nicest and most generous people we have ever had the pleasure to know and their love of the island shows in the home and surroundings. Sandi is extremely responsive to emails and phone calls and both Sandi and Ken work hard to insure that their cottage is a restful and tranquil spot.

The property manager responds immediately to any concern or question and the cleaning and maintenance of the property is of the highest quality. We intend to return often!

A quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage rental was a treat with such a beautiful view, and the water so inviting. We used all the water toys, and the kitchen and BBQ was set up perfect for making our own meals. Close to the airport, several villages and many quiet beaches.

Ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fantastic week at Sea Turtle Cottage for our 25th anniversary and wouldn't hesitate to book again if we decided to return to Eleuthera. This place earns points on so many fronts. Stunning views. The sea right out the back door, practically all to yourself (the development is small and quiet--only one other home was occupied when we were there). A well-laid out and beautifully decorated home (great to have the two big suites on opposite ends, which worked perfectly for us and our teenage daughter). Lots of helpful information (including the Beach Book and a Fodor's Guide, which we used every day). Friendly and responsive owners and caretakers. And an ideal location--secluded enough to be away from it all, but within easy walking distance of several beaches (on both sides of the island) and easy driving distance to places like the Glass Window Bridge and Governor's Harbor. We had initially been looking at places with "ocean views"--off of the Atlantic, or in the middle of the island, but we are SO happy we went with this cottage. Nothing beats being right on the beautiful water, in such a lovely home. Thanks, Sandi and Ken!

Wonderful birthday retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage for my Mom's 60th birthday and it did not disappoint. Unfortunately, we got some pretty bad weather while we were there (raging storms that created huge gusts of wind & waves), but we felt very safe inside the house the entire time & actually enjoyed watching the waves through the sliding glass doors. We did have one calm day where we swam & kayaked right outside the back door. The beds were extremely comfortable and although we did not travel with kids, this place would be great for a family with kids! The room setup is great for couples downstairs & kids upstairs! The house is decorated beautifully & thoughtfully from head to toe. Rainbow Bay Inn is right down the road and provide yummy food and a bit of entertainment if you're looking to get out. The caretaker of the house was very friendly and came to check up on us during the storm! It would have been nice to have the option of having some groceries in the fridge for arrival as we arrived late & the grocery stores were closed (maybe this is something you could offer in the future from the caretaker). The owners were very kind & responsive. I am from Nassau so would definitely consider this house for another Eleuthera trip soon!
