Amazing place to stay on Eleuthera

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the Sea Turtle Cottage. The location was amazing and we have to say that the snorkeling and water was the best we experienced on the entire island. We did travel to Harbor Island and enjoyed the pink sand beach, island bakery, and the vacation vibe of this island. We actually prefer Eleuthera, because there were about a million golf carts zipping around on Harbor Island (vacation people having vacation fun). We traveled most of the Eleuthera from Preacher' Cave in the north to Rock Sound in the south. The cost for food and eating out was higher than we have experienced in many of the tropical islands we travel ($70-199 for lunch for a family of 4 adults). You will love the sea turtle cottage and the manager Laura Albury was responsive when there were problems.

Completely Serene

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and so were the views! Completely serene and relaxing! We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Sea Turle Cottage! The water toys were just great and not to mention the use of the kayak! My only suggestion to the owners is the option of charging their guest a set fee for some of the necessities. Like, toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, foil, plastic wrap, washing powder, dish washing powder and etc. Some of these items were provided but it is a pain to have to purchase them when you are limited with space when you return home. These products are very expensive and needs to be purchased for the duration of your stay. This is my suggestion not only to the owners of this great property but to every property owner with VRBO.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time visiting Eleuthera and we all had a great time. The Sea Turtle Cottage could not have been better. It had everything my family of six could have asked for. The house is convenient to beautiful Rainbow Beach and within a short drive to many local grocery stores and restaurants. We enjoyed visiting other local beaches and towns, but loved spending time at the cottage for the most part. The people of Eleuthera are friendly and always willing to help out with anything you may need. Laura and her husband William (the caretakers) made themselves available if we needed them. I wouldn't hesitate to visit Eleuthera again. Sea Turtle Cottage was a wonderful place to stay.

Great Cottage, Great view, Awsome Deck

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Sea Turtle Cottage. The place was well stocked with everything you need (but don't want to buy) for a stay in the Bahamas. Small stuff like a cooler, plastic cups, saran wrap, a 5 gallon jug of water really makes your stay enjoyable. All of the appliances were new as was the dishes, utensils, knifes, ect. The king size bed was very comfortable. By far the nicest cottage we have ever rented. The covered deck is right next to the ocean and makes enjoyable place for meals and hanging out at night. The grill is wonderful and we cooked plenty of fresh fish on it. Would recommend this place for anyone staying in Eleuthera.

Use "The Beach Book" by Bret Sigillo (there is a copy in the cottage located near the TV) to find Eleuthera's hidden beaches and unbelievable snorkeling spots. We found this book to be invaluable to find unbelievably beautiful beaches. You will also need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get to these; but it's worth it.

Great Pizza on Monday nights at Rainbow Inn. Be sure to call before and make reservations otherwise you will not get in. This place is packed on Monday night. Great stone oven pizzas.

Best Play To Stay On Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

I mean it when I say this is the BEST PLAY TO STAY ON ELEUTHERA! We picked Eleuthera for our vacation b/c we heard Eleuthera has amazing beaches to find sea glass and Sea Turtle Cottage was centrally located to the beaches we wanted to search. They were right! I am guessing we brought a good 15 - 20lbs. of sea glass home with us.

From the moment you step inside you feel welcomed and at home. Sandi & Ken have everything you need for your vacation; a well equipped kitchen, grill, comfy beds, linens, beach towels, lunch cooler, beach chairs, life jackets, snorkeling equipment, kayak, games, puzzles, books, movies, safe, noodles & floaties for the water, you name it they have thought of it. We loved sitting out under the tiki hut and enjoying the views and playing games with the kids. The week we were there it was crazy windy but the bay Sea Turtle Cottage is on was always calm (vs. the Atlantic side). Snorkeling in the bay we saw everything from starfish, to sand dollars, to nurse sharks, string rays, tons & tons of tropical fish, needle fish, puffer fish and the list goes on and on. One day while we were out, the neighbors said there were turtles swimming in the bay (we were bummed we missed them). We loved the beach book at the house, that helped us find a number of hard to find beaches. We also loved the notebook Sandi & Ken had in the house with notes from other guest on things to do. You can tell how well Sandi & Ken take care of their home. I honestly can not think of a better place to stay on the island.

Our favorite day we spent on vacation was our day with James Dunnam at Bahamas Ocean Safaris - he is the greatest guide I have ever meet! By far the best day of our vacation. He knew we loved to find beach glass (a.k.a sea glass) and took us to a cove where the floor of the ocean was covered in sea glass. We swam with sea turtles, found a GIANT 6 point star fish, went reef fishing, even swam with the pigs. Yes, James has an island with swimming pigs!

Stubbs BBQ in James Cistern is a must. They only serve lunch on Friday & Saturday and my kids still talk about their ribs.

Sandi was great at answering any questions quickly and gave us lots of ideas of things to do while on the island. Sea Turtle Cottage could not have been more perfect for our family.
