About Josette Major

We are a Bahamian couple who moved from Nassau to Eleuthera in 2012 seeking peace and tranquility for our family. We have an established construction business where we love to make dreams come to reality with beautiful but affordable homes.

Josette Major purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Josette Major chose Rainbow Bay

A place to just settle back, unwind and relax in a comfortable and peaceful place for an affordable price. Located in a great place to feel fantastic Atlantic Ocean breezes, minimize the bug invasion and be central enough to go to any part of the island

What makes this cottage unique

We offer an inclusive service to our guests which makes your vacation planning easy. We offer a pick up service to and from the airport to the cottage and a jeep for a fee without having to deal with anyone else besides us. We offer complimentary use of the bikes, kayaks & golf cart to adventure within Rainbow Bay to the four beaches, cliffs or Rainbow Inn for delicious food and entertainment. We offer ourselves for any help necessary as being in a foreign place can often leave many questions unanswered. We are here to make this your best vacation ever.

A gorgeous cottage and amazing vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I love the beach! We travel extensively seeking cultural immersion, and 'non-touristy' places to explore and relax. Eleuthera was the island for us, and Delano's and Josette's place was a perfect match for us. The cottage is charming, and I don't think the pictures do justice to the charm of the place and attention to detail they both have provided. Delano picked us up at the airport, and is so friendly and accommodating. Josette will do anything for you. They live next door, but you never see them unless you want to touch base or ask for suggestions. The golf cart and the daily Jeep rental were so helpful for excursions to other amazing beaches, and of course the upscale Harbour Island day trip we took. The cottage has lovely linens, tons of towels, kayaks and bikes for two. The location is amazing- a 3-4 minute golf ride to the Atlantic (we LOVED "come and go beach"- and never saw a person there! Crystal clear water, and ten steps in and you are snorkeling with gorgeous purple Angel fish, examining tons of sea urchins and other fish)


We stayed for three weeks this August and experienced almost all of the comforts of home. (Please remember you are on an 'out' island.- Groceries may be your biggest challenge, but we brought what we thought we wouldn't find- like meat and condiments and IPA beer) We would have been fine without much of what we brought. There is far more available on the island that what reviews suggested.

So all in all, if you love peace and quiet, a quiet lovely home to unwind in at the end of a day full of adventure and exploration this is the place for you!

Having traveled to about 15 countries in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, (using VRBO- Josette and Delano by far were the most attentive landlords we have ever had!!!)

We are in the process of trying to settle on a lot there and hope Delano will build for us! We visited some of the homes they've built, and the quality of construction as well as the communication with us from afar has been perfect every step of the way.

Our Eleuthrera Island Adventure and the Only Home to rent

  • 5 out of 5
Each year our family looks for an island adventure vacation to take that's not in an All Inclusive Hotel. Well we found the perfect place to stay at Take Ya Time Cottage. The owners picked us up at the airport, stopped at the grocery store on the way to the cottage. They have the jeep there to rent for the stay, bikes, kayaks and golf cart to take to the 4 local beaches. The washer and dryer were helpful so we didn't need to bring much clothes with us. The home had everything in it that we needed for our stay, clean and comfortable. Josette and Delano were there to help with the different beaches to go to, restaurants to try. We went to a new beach each day. Beaches to definitely hit are Rainbow, Lighthouse beach(2.5 hr drive to get too, but well worth it), Cocodemamia (great for small children), Twin Cove, swam with sea turtles in Whales Point..........but really all the beaches are beautiful with snorkeling. Go to the docks in James Cicstern ask for Tunn we bought fresh fish and lobster from him at 3pm and Governors Harbor at 4pm we got fresh grouper. At the end of our days at the beach we just grilled dinner and chilled at the beautiful home that Delano built. This could not have been a nicer family to rent a home from for our Island Adventure. It was everything we hoped it would be and can not wait to return again. It's an island to get away from it all, but still have internet if you need it.

A Perfect Gem!

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for a clean, quiet, safe place to stay, look no further! This home is absolutely perfect. I will be back soon.
Things that made the trip even better... washer / dryer, full kitchen, two bathrooms, great TV, bottled water, being picked up at the airport, the porch, the view, the grill ( BBQ alot is was great), the fans in each room. Even though it was summer, the fans were so good there was no way you needed the AC. I didn't come to The Bahamas to live in AC. Twin Beach was the best find. Thanks Josette & Delano, beautiful vacation!

Unexpected Beauty

  • 5 out of 5
My friend and I were looking for a quiet place to relax and recharge and the Take Ya' Time Cottage was just what the doctor ordered.

The location in Rainbow Bay is great, you can travel pretty easily up and down the island. Especially with the Ford Explorer which is a must rent so you can see more of the island.

The house is built very well and has all the amenities you could ever need. I still daydream about drinking on the ocean breezed front porch. It is quite amazing.

Some tips on Eleuthera;
There are pretty much no signs anywhere, ask the hosts how to get to places, you will save a lot of time. Josette and Delano are really nice and now where to go.
Rainbow Bay Cafe, delicious! One of the best spots on the island to eat.
Don't miss Tippy's. We absolutely loved the place and the beach.
All the beaches! There are so many I can't say enough but Lighthouse Beach is the absolute most beautiful. Go to as many as you can an rest up!

I loved Eleuthera and would definitely go again and if I did, I would come back to this cottage.

Little Pink Houses

  • 5 out of 5
You know that place they tell you to imagine when you need to relax, that place where you find your inner peace ? For forever more Take " Ya" Time will be that place for me !
I spent two fabulous weeks in this little pink cottage on the top of a hill in Rainbow Cay and now if wishes come true I'll spend the rest of my life living my dream !
The front porch, the view, the breeze, the neighbors, the flowers, the birds, the sound of the ocean crashing against the cliffs, the sun rises, Josette and Delono, the girls, the puppy dogs, the Love. This place has it all and so very much more !
The cottage comes with everything you need except food of course and shopping can be a bit of a challenge but that's life on an island and part of the adventure ! I love Eleuthera !
There are bicycles and kayak's for you to enjoy, a golf cart to run around in and have I mentioned that front porch !
I can't wait to go home again, ummm I mean go back... no, I had it right the first time... home !
