Wow! What an amazing place. My family and I went down for 10 days. The layout of the house was awesome with the loft upstairs for the boys. One of the best views and a short swim to Rainbow beach. The gazebo was great for watching the sunsets or just unplugging. Great selection of snorkeling gear, floats for the ocean in your front yard, and kayak! The beds were very comfy and the house had a great movie collection, book, and games. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed! Great washer/dryer as well. Loved it and will definitely return in the future.

A beautifull holiday

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati ospiti di questa bellissima casa in agosto 2017. La casa è un sogno dotata di tutto ogni necessità è soddisfatta. Eravamo due famiglie con due bambini. Il mare è fantastico e la posizione ci ha permesso di visitare l'isola in modo rapido. Abbiamo trascorso una splendida vacanza con tutti i comfort di casa. La spiaggia di sabbia è a 50 mt e ci si arriva a che a nuoto. Lo snorkeling è fantastico. Una mattina sono passate due mante davanti a casa. Grazie a Sandò e Ken per l'ospitalità e alla General manager per aver tempestivamente risolto qualche problema. La Sea turtle cottage rimarrà per sempre nei nostri cuori.

Excellent location for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed spending a week at Sea Turtle Cottage. The location is great -- just a few steps from Rainbow Beach. And you can also access the sea directly from the property as well. We were impressed with all the thought that the owners have put into providing amenities. The kitchens and bathrooms were well stocked and everything was beautifully decorated and maintained. We enjoyed spending time in the back yard loungers watching the scenery. At night, it was nice to have reliable internet access for movies and checking email.

Can we pleeeeeeeeeeeease stay forever?

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for putting this wonderful house on the rental market. My husband and I have travelled many places, renting many homes and this was by far the best one. Not just the location, but the house itself.

This house is set up as if it is your house at home. They had every available item you could possibly need. From kitchen utensils, pots, pans, appliances, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, etc. to things you usually don't even miss until you need them. There are sunglasses, playing cards, umbrellas, coolers, DVD'S, books, and a wonderful set up on the tv to access cable and Netflix. I could go on and on....

It was just my husband and I, so I can only review the bedroom and bath we used which was the one behind the kitchen. The house is a split bedroom set up, which is wonderful for travelling companions. The loft was adorable, had an air conditioner and full bath up there.

The bedroom we stayed in was perfect. King sized bed, WONDERFUL mattress, plenty of pillows and blankets. A patio door opened right onto the back porch. The bathroom is not huge, but has everything you need, with a large shower. Water pressure was okay, toilet worked great, plenty of bath and beach towels available.

The a/c was fantastic in that room, we turned it on at night when we went to sleep. The a/c in the living room worked great also, although it did tend to get a little warmer later in the afternoon. So that was when we went into the ocean!

Now to my favorite part: the outside! This home is located right smack in Rainbow Bay, which is a great neighborhood. The front lawn is well taken care of, but the WOW factor is the back. The tiki hut is so wonderful to have. My husband and I did coffee in the mornings and sunset watching at night. Comfy chairs, solar lamps, bug repellant, all of it is there. There are great lounge chairs in the backyard if you are a sun worshipper. I spent several mornings before the sun came over the house laying on one and staring at the ocean.

You will have your own access to the ocean, which will make you feel like you own the whole thing! There are 12-13 wooden beams you step down to get into the ocean. Swim shoes are a must since they get slick, but they look scarier than they are. Easy to get up and down. There is a safety rope to help you. If they are too much, Rainbow Beach is 30 second walk away.

Don't hesitate to rent this home. This is now our go to place on Eleuthera! You won't regret it!

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.
