A cozy and comfortable cottage with ocean views in a quiet, out of the way area. Close to airport, beaches and Harbour Island.
2 weeks notice in case of cancellation is requested for rebooking purposes but the Airbnb refund policy remains in effect.
Eleuthera is the place to come if you want to just kick back and enjoy the peace and tranquility....
Fly into North Eleuthera Airport, which is closest to the cottage and a car rental (recommended) can be arranged in advance from there, or you can take a taxi.
Seagrape Cottage is a perfect spot to totally relax and enjoy the 360 views of sea and sky and allow the ocean views and cool breezes to refresh and rejuvenate body and spirit. The cottage is appointed with simple, yet comfortable, island style furnishings. There is a small, basically equipped kitchen and indoor toilet and shower. Although the space is small, the view is huge with the wild, deep blue ocean just steps from the front door. It is located in a very quiet, sparsely populated area called Whale Point. The roads are unpaved so traffic is minimal and slow moving. it is also a great bird watching area, esp during migration period and the winter season.
The closest beach is a 10 minute walk, or a 5 minute bike ride from the cottage where you can swim with young sea turtles, kayak, paddleboard, snorkel or just lounge in the crystal clear waters of the shallow bay, known locally as Bottom Harbour. Bicycles as well as kayaks and paddleboards can be rented with daily or weekly rates.
The pace here is slow and the vibe is mellow, so be prepared to let all your stress melt away and just chill out in paradise.
The cottage is all yours to enjoy in peace and privacy. I will be stopping by once a day, early evening, to walk and feed dogs. You are free to come and go at any hour of day or night.
Water conservation is a MUST! Fresh water is a limited resource on the island, PLEASE conserve as much as possible with short showers and not leaving water running when washing dishes, brushing teeth, shaving, soaping up or shampooing hair. And no need to flush toilet after every single use...
I will be available to assist with any issues as I live nearby. I can help with securing car rentals, activity recommendations, directions etc. My brother also lives on island and runs an eco-tour company. Bahamas Out Island Adventures, which offers guided tours and activities.
Also available in the immediate vicinity is Eleuthera Sailing Adventures, a day sail charter which takes you to explore nearby uninhabited islands where you can snorkel, collect seaglass and shells or just lounge on board with a cold beverage.
I also offer massage therapy sessions at reduced rates for cottage guests.
If you require catering or provisioning service that can also be arranged.
There are also dogs living on the property in area separate from cottage but thye can be relocated temporarily, if you find they are barking too much.
This is a remote island with limited resources. If you have special dietary needs please let me know in advance so I can advise if they can be accommodated here. Also be aware that medical care is minimal here, so be careful when out and about exploring the island, but do have fun!! Bring a good supply of any prescription or OTC medicines you need.
If you are looking for island nightlife, Harbour Island, just a short boat ride across the bay from here, offers a variety in the way of day and evening entertainments as well as being home to a spectacular and world famous pink sand beach. And if you don't mind driving a ways or at night, you can find places further south that offer live music, dining etc as well as many beautiful and elusive beaches. If you have an unlocked cell phone, a local SIM card can be used for local calls, texts and data.
Please be respectful of the cottage and it's contents, much blood, sweat and tears have gone into it's construction and things are expensive to replace on the island.
If you must smoke, which I prefer you do not, no indoor smoking and please put cigarette butts in the trash, not on the ground.
No loud music or noise at any time, the peace and quiet is the point of the place.
No cleaning fish, conch or other seafood indoors and dispose of guts etc into the sea, do not put in the trash.
Please respect the neighbours' privacy at all times, some of them are also on vacation, if you need anything I am the person to contact.
I am a self employed massage therapist and entrepreneur. I am Bahamian, originally from the island of New Providence and I have lived on the island of Eleuthera for over 10 years. I am familiar with most aspects of island life so can help make your vacation experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
I love animals and growing things, music, film, and travel which I am hoping to do more of in the near future.
