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.

This was my first time to Eleuthera but my traveling friend had been several times and she introduced me to the "ways of the Island". Eleuthera is NOT for everyone but for those who desire to rest and refresh and go "off grid' for a while, its the best. We could not have been more pleased with our house. Perfect. Everything about it. It is well stocked and just downright cute. The Ocean breeze and the gorgeous sunsets made us say WOW everyday. Our electricity went out a time or two due to a rain storm that came thru but this house is also well stocked with candles and flashlights. It was NO PROBLEM. The grill is great and we used it every night. Israel really is a caretaker, and even brought us fresh homemade bread one day. The house is centrally located to most of the good beaches and we had plenty of beach chairs, coolers and supplies for the makings of a good day on the Caribbean. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. My friend (Daphne) who has stayed in many others -says this is one of the best. Thank you for making my first trip to the Island - to my last!
Pleasantly surprised when we walked in. Clean and spacious with all the amenities. Israel helped us so much. If we had any problems he took care of them. He even came by on the last day to see how we were doing.
This property is centrally located to most areas of interest on the island. We traveled the length of the island and went to Spanish Wells and Harbour Island. Definitely will come again
We had a great time here. There were six adults and Indigo Seas met all our needs. We were able to explore the whole island, Spanish Wells, and Harbour Island. Dave was very helpful and gave us great information before we made our trip. Great views of ocean. Spectacular sunrises. It was greatly enjoyed by all.
The minute we walked in we knew this was the perfect place! The cottage is even better than it looks in the pictures and has everything we need. It is easy to get north to Harbour Island and really not bad going south to check out the beaches that direction. We hope to come back and we haven't even left yet.
Thanks Dave and Israel, we had a fantastic time at Indigo Seas. The views are spectacular and your location is ideal for island exploring. This was our second time to Eleuthera and we would definitely rent your ideal cottage again. The guest cottage was perfect for my parents and there was plenty of room in the main house for my husband and I and our two boys in their early twenties. Thanks for the kayaks, we loved exploring in them. We will be back. I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in central Eleuthera.
I would like to share a wonderful experience I have had with Dave, the owner of Indigo Seas. I contacted Dave to ask questions about his property. He sincerely wanted to ensure his property met the needs of our little group, and was very honest about not being sure it would be big enough for us. He took the time to share with me a lot of very useful information about Rainbow Bay and the island. That was certainly greatly appreciated, and will help us plan our stay in Eleuthera. Dave was extremely generous and genuinely wanted us to have a great time in the Bahamas. His property did not meet the needs of our group, but otherwise, we would have stayed there for sure, feeling confident that this is a great spot with a very kind and honest owner who wishes his guests a great stay.
