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

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.

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

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.

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!

  • 5 out of 5
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!

WHAT A FIND!

  • 5 out of 5
This property is not only reasonably priced (a rarity in the Bahamas), it is also beautiful. A great value for what you get. We are United States expats living on New Providence (Nassau), and wanted a comfy, beach feeling house to stay in while we were on our 4 day break from the hustle and bustle of ministry work in Nassau. Cat Nap exceeded our expectations.

The cottage sits high off the ground which allows for ample breezes to come in the windows and for breath taking views of the Caribbean side of the island to the south and even the Atlantic side to the north. It is a quiet place with the bush (this is what Bahamians call wooded areas) surrounding the entire property. Although there are other houses in the area, they are enough distance away to give plenty of privacy. It is quiet and peaceful, and we saw very few people while sitting on the big wrap around porch.

We brought most of our food with us, and because we arrived on Sunday, we are glad we did. There was almost nothing open on Sunday. You will need to plan accordingly for food and water if you plan to be on the island on a Sunday. Also, if you are not used to Bahamian food prices, consider bringing food with you because everything is expensive. The kitchen was adequately stocked with basic cooking utensils.

The owner was very helpful and accommodating. She was not on the island when we arrived, but a family member was at the property as promised to give us the keys and orientate us to the property.

Cat Nap is a great property, and we plan on staying there again if we ever have the opportunity to return to Eleuthera!
