About Melisa Groff

A 9th generation Bahamian who has been active in education for the past 20+ years. I have decided to share the beauty of this Family island with others. Come visit my home :-)

Melisa Groff purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Melisa Groff chose Rainbow Bay

Rainbow Bay is a quiet, beautiful piece of heaven. Its amazing ocean views from each location constantly provide a changing view of the Atlantic & Caribbean oceans. The small community is a tranquil place where visitors are frequently seen walking throughout the area taking photos of sunrises and sunsets. The 4 accessible beaches allows for beach hopping without leaving Rainbow Bay. Rainbow Bay Inn & Restaurant provides a quick location for entertainment and meals when you wish to leave your cottage. This cottage is about 5minutes walking distance to Rainbow Beach.

Rainbow Bay is also close enough to several island communities and other beaches to make exploring and day trips an exciting and easy excursion.

What makes this cottage unique

This brand new property has not had the wear & tear of many rental properties and can provide a spacious environment that can be ideal as a base camp for daily excursions and yet peaceful enough to mornings at home drinking coffee and evening watching the sunset off the L shaped deck. The 5 min walk to Rainbow Bay Beach with its tiki huts is perfect for an afternoon of snorkling and sunbathing. We have a golf cart for use in Rainbow Bay and a rental car is also available to guests. Available airport transfers make your vacation smoother.

In 15 years of coming to Eleuthera for research, the Cat Nap cottage was by far the best place I have ever stayed. If you like a quiet place away from the tourist traps, this is the perfect location. Beaches on both the Atlantic and sound side of the island are easily accessible with a short drive, or a long, but easy walk. The cottage is clean, well maintained and Melisa was very responsive and easy to work with. The place is fully stocked and you can't beat the price!

A car is a must if you want to explore the island. We rented one out of Rock Sound, but should have just rented Melisa's jeep. It would have been far easier. Alternatively, if you are just looking for a quiet place without much exploring, Melisa's golf cart will get you to the critical spots nearby.

Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! I'll be back for sure, and next time it won't be for work!

Great Rental!!

  • 5 out of 5
We chose Catnap for our third trip to Eleuthera and couldn't have been more pleased. The house is very nice and new and in a great location! Melisa was very accommodating and responsive any time we needed anything at all. Being in Rainbow Bay was very quiet, convenient, and central to most of the beaches that we like to explore. We made good use of the grill on the deck and it was nice having wifi to check in with the family. We would definitely recommend this rental!

Amazing house! Best trip ever

  • 5 out of 5
Hi Folks, we stayed at the Cat Nap cottage for 7 days and it was one of the best vacations we've ever experienced. The pictures of the house don't do it justice, it is actually quite spacious, bright, modern and light. It was also well stocked with snorkeling gear, cooler, chairs, towels all kitchen needs --- Highly recommend renting the Jeep Melisa offers - the car is a must as there are so many beautiful beaches nearby and it's great for exploring. The cottage is in very close proximity to several grocery stores - but be aware that the food prices on the island are a bit steep and you may want to bring some essentials with you. We loved Rainbow Bay, Governors Harbor (pick up fresh fish at 2pm), Cocodimama beach, Winding Bay...and all the beaches we randomly stumbled on. Overall, best beach house on the island and Melisa is so great and accommodating. Best vacation ever! Go with Cat Nap Cottage!

Everything you could ask for and more!

The Pink House was an amazing place to stay! The place was centrally located and super clean. It is about a 1 minute drive to Rainbowbay Beach or 5 minute walk. The house is located about a 20 minute drive from the airport; it is right off of Queens Highway. Melisa was great; she answered all the questions I had and was very helpful. I would definitely come back here and stay again!
