About Ken and Adele Holtermann

Retired from Transportation Bussiness in New Jersey who came to Eleuthera 12 years ago .

The rest is history..loved the people and the peace of he island not to mention the beaches.

Decided to have villa built after much thought and planning in 2005 and then ken decided he needed something to keep him busy so he hired some local island men and constructed what is now the Pink Sand Cottage

I always wanted to be right on the water..knew the chances I was taking and said 'I'm doing this as you only go around once in life'

Many years of trucking the roads of the USA. I owned and operated a small trucking and transportation company

Adele worked many jobs but the biggest job was being the mom to our 3 sons

We are now blessed with two wonderful grandchildren Come visit Eleuthera and stay at our cottage

It is well maintained as we are on island. 5 to 6 months a year

Please see our guests feedback...

You are welcome to contact any and all

Pink Sand Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent one week at the cottage. It was clean, quaint, and exactly as pictured on the website. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. It offered reading material and movies, if that is something you want. It is beautifully landscaped and provided much privacy. We saw only 1 person on the beach all week. The beach is very pretty and can be viewed from inside the house, on the porch, or from deck.

Pink Sand Cottage is a gem, and in a great location for exploring all of Eleuthera.

quaint and cozy in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a little tricky to find but appreciated the seclusion once we arrived. The cottage is well kept and well equipped. It has two great sitting and lounging decks that lead out to the beach. The beach is very private and beautiful. It has a nice pink sand beach with a rocky entry that leads to lots of reef and structure directly in front of the cottage. We saw only four people the entire week we were there. It is in a very central location, therefor making it easy for exploring both the north and south ends of the island. Having explored the whole island, Pink Sand Cottage is definitely in our favorite area and we cannot wait to plan another stay!

Tip - Download google maps for offline use on your cell phone before you go. It will definitely help in getting around and exploring.

Very nice, very private, well maintianed.

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. My wife and I honeymooned there and didn't want to leave. The cottage is well kept and clean. It has everything 2 people need. The shower was a bit small, but there's a giant outdoor one.

The beach is very private. We saw people at a distance if at all. The last day there a family must have rented a property near by because we saw them down the beach. There were many days the beach was all yours.

Be advise the beach has some bad rocksin some places. So I would recommend some type of water shoe if you go into the ocean.

You should probably get a 4x4 rental to get to the cottage as it is down a "beach road". Besides going exploring is fun and the 4x4 will let you see the best part of the island.

We had a wonderful time!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for. taking the time to write a review As for the 4x4. I must disagree with you as a car is fine to come down our beach road and also you will pay an extra 20 per day for one. I feel it's not worth the extra money before the road to our cottage was paved almost 3/4 up it was a good idea but not now..in our opinion however you guys are much younger than me. lol The indoor shower is not for 2 ( note for honeymooners ) but for one it's fine. :) We are very happy you are please with your stay and yes there are some spots that you will need water shoes to enter but also open areas where you can enter and exit the sea plus a great cove that's all sandy just south of the cottage about 300 yard All the best...do come back to Eleuthera ......Ken

Amazingng relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

I hate to say we had sugh a great time at Pink Sand Cottage because I'm afraid the secret will get out! We loved the beach with all the great shells, miles of walking and crystal blue/green water. The wind was strong while we were there, but the sun deck allowed us to relax without being too cool.Loved the hammock, too. The bed is comfy, the kitchen is good, the bath is good and the island and people are AMAZING. It's not a fancy place r island but the perfect place to get away and relax. Definately want a car to go exploring the other beaches, grocery (which was good and we could find plenty of things we are used to), liquor and fishing. We will be back. I keep looking at the calendar to figure out when we can go back. Thanks for a great place to chill.

Perfect cottage on a perfect beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Eleuthera and we weren't quite sure what to expect. We read the reviews of the Pink Sands Cottage and it sounded perfect for us - it was! The cottage itself is exactly what is described - it's well stocked, comfortable and right on the beach. We were lucky because Ken was available to us for questions, recommendations and anything else we needed. My advice is to listen to him regarding restaurants as his suggestions were spot on.

The beach itself was perfect - we rarely saw anyone and when we did, it was someone walking by. Ken provides several beach chairs, towels, snorkeling equipment and even a small library of books so all we needed was sunscreen and bug spray (no-see-ums are my only complaint but the bug spray worked).

We will be going back next year as this was the most relaxing vacation we've had. We both love the beach and have been to many different Caribbean locales but this was hands down the most peaceful!

Thank you Ken and Adele - we'll see you next year!

Location

Nearest Airport
12 Miles
Governor's Harbour Airport ( 12 miles away)
Nearest Restaurant
2 Miles
Unique Village Hotel & Rest
Nearest Beach
You are right on the beach
Car: recommended

The Pink Sand Cottage is located on the Banks Road ( Atlantic Side of the island) in North Palmetto Point ( Centrally Located)

The Pink Sand Cottage is close to Grocery stores in North Palmetto point just 2 miles to town and the better restaurants in central Eleuthera are all in a 5 mile radius of the cottage .

The Island Farm is only 2 miles from the Cottage where you can buy fresh local produce, fresh herbs & salad dressings ,etc and in the reg season Nov through May they also have fresh made breads, rolls and breakfast buns ( um-um good) on Tuesdays and Fridays.

A new point of Interest is the new 'Leon Levy Botanical Garden' that opened in 2010 within 5 miles of the cottage

A new 2015 added restaurant is 1648 Located in Gov Harbour

We highly recommend this new location as well as The Buccaneer also in Gov Harbor and the new coffee shop The Perk in GH
