INDIGO SEAS- PANORAMIC OCEAN VIEW, SECLUDED COTTAGE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Rainbow Bay

Cottage, 2-3 Bedrooms, 2-3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Indigo Seas is a tropical and secluded two bedroom, two bathroom cottage overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. There is a guest house on the property with a third bedroom and bathroom available for rent if you need more space. This cottage is approximately 100 feet from the water, and elevated by about 70 feet, providing a spectacular, 180 degree, unobstructed view of the ocean. The peacefulness of this house makes it the perfect place for couples and families to enjoy their relaxing break.

Situated on Ocean Drive in Rainbow Bay on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, there are many beautiful beaches nearby, including Rainbow Bay Beach on the sheltered 'Caribbean' side of the island. Rainbow Bay Beach is one of the best beaches on the island, is sheltered and shallow, offers great snorkeling, and provides shaded picnic tables and benches. Indigo Seas is also within walking distance of the Atlantic side beaches Smuggler's Beach, Hidden Beach, Twin Beach and Come & Go Beach, and chances are good that you will have all of them to yourselves. Ocean Drive is a quiet, scenic road that runs parallel to the ocean for several miles, perfect for walking or jogging.

Indigo Seas has front and back decks to enjoy the fantastic, panoramic views of the ocean from James Point in the South to Harbour Island in the North. You can relax on the deck and watch the cruise ships go by. The island is only a half mile wide at this spot, so you have easy access to both the Atlantic and Caribbean sides.

When you arrive at Indigo Seas...

The front door opens, revealing an airy, open plan kitchen and dining area. Beyond is the living room, connected by french doors to the full width back deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The master bedroom off the living room has full views of the ocean and both bedrooms have cross breezes from ample windows on two sides. The house is furnished with natural wicker that stands on a varnished plank floor. Large overhead fans accentuate the tray ceilings throughout the house. All your living is contained on one floor with three step access for the driveway.

Our central location on Eleuthera provides for convenient sightseeing on this 110 mile long island, and day trips to Lighthouse Beach at the southern tip or Harbour Island and Spanish Wells at the northern tip. Short flights from Miami or Fort Lauderdale in Florida (45 minutes) and Nassau (15 minutes) arrive at Governor's Harbour airport (GHB) 15 minutes to the south, and North Eleuthera airport (ELH) 30 minutes to the north. There is also a ferry available from Nassau. Rental cars or taxis are readily available and our local caretaker can pick you up at either airport, provide you with a rental car, and show you to the house if you wish. Grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and beverage stores are all within a 5-10 minute drive. The nearby Rainbow Inn has some of the best food on the island, as well as a bar and live music.

Eleuthera is known for it's pristine and deserted pink sand beaches and it's friendly out island charm. Tourists are well received on the island, and there is very little crime, so you can enjoy your stay and explore this historic island without concerns for safety.

Scroll down to the 'Links to more information' area of this page and have a look at a video tour of the house and our view of the ocean. Don't hesitate to phone or email us with questions, as we love to talk about Eleuthera. We would love to provide suggestions on airlines, car rentals, the best beaches and restaurants, and any other information that you need in planning your vacation on Eleuthera.

one of the best rental homes in Rainbow Bay

  • 5 out of 5
We have a love for Eleuthera that goes back 40 years and have stayed in many rental homes. We just got back from a eight day stay at Indigo Seas and wish we could have stayed longer. It's a cute 2 bedroom 2 bath home with a detached cottage with one full bed and its own bathroom. We had 4 adults and were very comfortable there. It would be ideal for a family with children also. We loved our view sitting on the porch looking out over the Atlantic and we had a nice breeze that kept the house very comfortable without the use of the air conditioners. The house is conveniently located in the center of Eleuthera in beautiful Rainbow Bay, making it easy to travel to either end of the island. You have one of the best restaurants, Rainbow Inn, located nearby also. The house is very well equiped for cooking your own meals and also has a gas grill. Dave, the owner, was a pleasure to talk to and is very accommodating. His caretaker, Israel, was very helpfull too. We plan to go back again with our daughter & son in law in a few months and will definitely rent this house again!

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 out of 5
Indigo Seas is the perfect escape from reality! Charming house with many great amenities. The decks, the neighborhood and central location makes it easy to go anywhere on Eleuthera. Rainbow Bay beach is 5 minutes away for easy Caribbean swimming and snorkeling. The owner, Dave was most accommodating and easy to work with, their caretaker, Israel was available when needed. Eleuthera will beguile you with their beautiful beaches and sights. The locals are friendly, sweet and kind, strike up a conversation with them and you'll learn much about the island. The island is not a place to visit if you want nightlife and partying, just go relax, read a book and disconnect. Indigo Seas is all you need!

Gem of a house

  • 5 out of 5
We spent six weeks at Indigo Seas from Feb 14th through March 27th. The house was lovely, roomy and well equipped. The breezes from the Atlantic we're cooling and we did not have to run the air conditioning at all. While we there high speed internet was installed and you can run jus about any application with no trouble. There is also satellite Tv with a multitude of channels and movie networks. The kitchen is very well equipped and we prepared almost all our meals at home. For at least half of our holiday we were joined by two other couples so we availed of the guest house as well. There was plenty of room and each couple had their own bathroom.
The house location is in central Eleuthera so most of the island is accessible in a day trip. You can walk to Twin Beach which is two small beaches just below the cottage on the Atlantic side. It is very private and we always had the beach to ourselves. The surf on this side is rough and can sometimes damage or wipe out this beach. Otherwise Rainbow Bay Beach on the Caribbean side is a quick drive away.
You need to rent a vehicle while here as most things are at least a drive away. This would be true of most rentals in Eleuthera.
It will be a while before we get back to Eleuthera but we would definitely rent this property again. It is exactly as promised, clean, and the owners were a pleasure to deal with.
Cheers
Eileen and Paul

Great community- has it all

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely house on a quiet hill overlooking the Atlantic with Caribbean side only a half mile away. Great house, super comfortable with all the ammenities. Good for families with kids or without. House was cool at night and vey comfortable during the day. Nice neighbors but not too close. Ranibow bay beach is perfect for fishing, beach, snorkeling and just relaxing and meeting a few people but its never crowded and you often have it to yourself. Small town of Jame Cistern nearby was charming and we really enjoyed meeting the towns people during their very special Easter celebrations. Great vacation!

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful place to spend a vacation on Eleuthera. Indigo Seas is a spectacular house that is conveniently located to move all about Eleutehra. We were able to get into Governors Harbor and the beaches there, but also up to Surfers Beach, James Point, Hatchet Bay and other fun beaches quickly from the house. As an added bonus the house is just 2 minutes away from Rainbow Inn, one of our favorite restaurants on the island. Additionally, Caribbiean beaches at Rainbow bay were less than 5 minutes from the house as well. You truly have an embarassment of riches of places to conveniently visit from the house.

We could not have enjoyed the beautiful views of the Atlantic from the deck overlooking the ocean and loved sleeping at night with the windows open and the sea and breeze lulling us to sleep. The house had everything our group of 4 needed and afforded us a nice measure of privacy as well. Indigo Seas is very well maintained and we truly felt at home there. This was our 5th year in a row on the island and one of our best stays yet. The owner and caretaker could not have done a better job of providing for an excellent experience and we could not be more greatful. I highly recommend Indigo Seas to anyone visiting Eleuthera.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 out of 5
We were blessed to be able to live at Indigo Seas for the entire month of February, 2013. We thought it looked like what we were looking for from the internet listing but everything about the house far exceeded our expectations. The location is super, right on the Atlantic, and when you walk through the front door the views of the ocean are spectacular. The house is decorated simply and tastefully with comfortable and attractive furnishings. Beds are comfortable, the kitchen is outfitted very well with good pots and pans, plenty of dishes and flatware and lots of extras. The owner was very responsive to our questions both before we went and during our stay. If anything, the home looks better in person than on the internet. We had family come visit for part of our stay and they fell in love with it right away, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of an Eleuthera stay in a fairly central location. Rainbow Bay beach is literally 5 minutes away by car. One of our party regularly walked there and back with no trouble. We had morning coffee at the Rainbow Bay Inn and met a lot of friendly people and also went back for dinner. Just up the road in Hatchet Bay we got the most delicious stone crab claws from the charming couple who run The Front Porch. Great service and fair prices. I think that is about a 10 minute drive. The house was very clean and welcoming. The exterior is colorful and cheerful.....very Caribbean looking and fun with lots of flowers and plants in bloom and beautiful birds. I'm glad we took a lot of pictures as we don't want to forget this vacation!
