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.

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!
