About Ken & Sandi Jackson

We live in beautiful Alberta, Canada and recently built this vacation home for our family in the Bahamas.

Ken & Sandi Jackson purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Ken & Sandi Jackson chose Eleuthera

We chose this area for it tranquil beauty and it's proximity to the sea. The Island of Eleuthera is welcoming and peaceful, we can unwind in this tropical paradise.

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy a quite vacation where you can go to any of the fabulous beaches and walk for miles without meeting a single person. The people of Eleuthera are kind and helpful.

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!

Enjoyed our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at this home! Owners were great to communicate with and very helpful! Sandi deserves 5 stars!! Gardener in Eleuthera was sweet too! Saw lots of star fish and other sea life. The house was nice and new, and well thought out. Really enjoyed having the outdoor shower!! We also really enjoyed the outdoor eating area, and the lights on the deck. The house was well cared for, and we so enjoyed our stay! Thank you for sharing your home with us Ken and Sandi!

Bring your watercolor set!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated (it makes you start planning your own home remodel), and so comfortable. The furnishings are colorful, calming, and the beds and pillows assure the most restful sleep after a day in the sun and sea.

The Caribbean Sea is your backyard with views of Rainbow Cay to the east and stunning land/seascape to the west. The house has everything you could ever need including modern appliances and sporting equipment in good working order.

The owners are the nicest people you will ever talk business with and they offer humorous and pertinent information about Rainbow Bay and the surrounding townships.

The grocery store is very nearby (Big Rock) as is a local restaurant that is HOPPING on Monday nights with local musicians playing island rake and scrape.

Although we love to adventure all day when we are on Eleuthera, we found that staying "home" with our swim ladder to the Caribbean was the best choice for us. You will be thrilled to have found such a property and family to work with. We have already booked for next year.

The best of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we wanted and more! We spent every morning taking in the beautiful views from the cabana and every evening in that same spot watching the most beautiful sunsets. The location is ideal to explore the amazing beaches both north and south of Rainbow Bay or you can spend the day at the perfect beach just a short walk from the house. We loved everything about this trip and are already thinking about when we can return!
