Dreaming of a private island vacation, but can't quite afford one?
If you're looking for peace, quiet, and privacy, you've just stumbled upon paradise. Welcome to Turtle Cove, North Eleuthera, Bahamas. Turtle Cove is the most secluded villa rental on mainland Eleuthera Bahamas. This lovely, spacious, fully-equipped 4BR/2BA vacation home rental is located on a peninsula of four beautiful oceanfront acres of tropical fruit trees (at least 20 different varieties) and flowering trees in every color of the rainbow. The landscaping around the Turtle Cove villa is truly a delight to the eyes, and is a wonderful place for bird watching. Turtle Cove offers a fabulous view of the sea, the sunrise, the sunset, Harbour Island, and other surrounding cays. As the name, 'Turtle Cove', suggests, guests usually see beautiful turtles around the property every day.
This native-style Bahamian villa offers its own private dock and coves of deserted pink sand beach that are private enough for private swimming and sunbathing. The closest neighboring home or commercial establishment is more than three miles away in any direction; yet, Turtle Cove is within a short ride by boat and/or car to Harbour Island, Spanish Wells or other quaint towns on Eleuthera where you may visit historical landmarks, dine at quaint eateries, browse the native markets or explore interesting caves. The famous, historic Preacher's Cave is only a few miles away; it is a great place to explore. Preacher's Cave is where the first European settlers took shelter after they shipwrecked on Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef in 1648.
The area is known for its great bone fishing; bonefish have been caught from the home's private dock! The area also offers great snorkeling and fishing, and the famous Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef is less than a 1/4 mile away. Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef is world famous for reef fishing, lobstering, and snorkeling, and plays a very important part in the local history of the surrounding islands. Turtles and pods of dolphins frequent the area around Turtle Cove, and there are many deserted nearby islands and beaches to explore.
Fishing charters, diving charters, snorkeling guides, tour guides, caving excursions, rental boats, and rental cars are available for your enjoyment.....or you may just want to relax in paradise.
For your enjoyment this vacation rental offers free use of a vehicle (manual transmission), bicycles, and ocean kayaks that you may use to explore the beautiful natural surroundings. (Otherwise rental cars, bicycles and kayaks are expensive to rent separately.)
Turtle Cove is great for those rental parties that definitely want to stay off the beaten track. If you are looking for a real natural escape with no neighbors right next door, and where the fishing and snorkeling are second to none, then, Turtle Cove is the place for you. Most guests never see another soul at Turtle Cove; a few run into a lost tourist or two or a local farmer turning around at the end of the road.
Please note that Turtle Cove is completely 'off the grid', and, as such, water and electricity conservation is encouraged.

When not diving commercially for lobsters, he is a local fishing & snorkeling guide, and also offers area tours and cave exploring. (Some have called him the Crocodile Dundee of North Eleuthera.) Brent aka Capt. Smiley is also a licensed boat captain who also offers fishing and snorkeling trips, boat rentals, and golf cart rentals. He is also a local rental property manager. Lorraine is the local North Eleuthera realtor and will be pleased to show you all the best local real estate deals (her listings and all other agents' listings) when you are in town.

We found Turtle Cove in 1991 and fell instantly in love with the place. There are many little coves of beach on the peninsula and one long amazingly beautiful beach on the north side that seems to go on forever and there are no other souls in sight. The area around Turtle Cove is very private and secluded, and, yet, groceries, restaurants, bars, etc. are close enough for us at 3 - 5 miles away.
Turtle Cove is a very unique property. It offers seclusion. There are no other homes or commercial establishments within 3 miles of the property. The property also offers many coves of pinkish sandy beaches and a amazing beach that seems to stretch forever on the north side. You really don't know how nice it is to have a beach all to yourself until you try it. Turtle Cove also offers a dock on the protected east side of the property, which is great for persons that like boating and fishing, etc. It is very rare to find a property that offers both a beach and dock. The property offers many tropical fruit trees where guests may pick fresh fruit whenever it is in season. Most guests see beautiful turtles around the property just about every day. The property is completely off the grid and water and energy conservation is encouraged. A vehicle, ocean kayaks, and bicycles are offered free of charge to guests of Turtle Cove.
