As beautiful as it appears in the photos, it's even better in real life. The views are spectacular in every direction -- a mix of aqua blue water and beautiful tropical foliage. Add to that the sound of the ocean and birds singing. Inside, the house is comfortable throughout and beautifully furnished. Ruth, who prepares amazing and delicious meals, is such a delight to know. We enjoyed swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, walking the beaches (Lighthouse beach is a must and not too far from the house) and, of course, relaxing. We would love to return!

Second Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this wonderful house and island, and, believe it or not, this trip was better than our first. The house is very spacious and comfortable with many venues for quiet reading, both inside and out.Ruth, the amazing cook, creates unbelievable meals with local seafood'fruits and vegetables. She is as kind and welcoming as any hostess I have ever encountered. Between the kayaking, snorkeling, fishing and lounging on the beach - I barely had time for my book. We will be back again next year!!!

If you need complete peace, rest, tranquility, and beauty then no need to look any further. My wife and I have been blessed to go to several fine places on many islands but nothing compares to this spot. You have water on all sides, ocean views from almost everywhere, no sounds other than the sea, the wind, and the birds, and just nothing to do but walk on the expansive beaches, read, snorkel, and sleep. The beds are comfortable, as are the couches, the housekeeper is fantastic, and the whole ambience is perfection. The place is located at the end of a road so no cars pass by, and you literally hear nothing but the rolling ocean. We have never found better and we will be back again and again and again. I came down exhausted and am heading home beautifully restored! A wonderful gift! Perfection!

Return trip!

  • 5 of 5

I hadn't been back since 2012 but it was just as wonderful as I remembered. The house location is lovely, oceanfront as well as lagoon-sited. Breezes all the time! There were 10 of us this time and we all had comfortable, large rooms with our own bathrooms. Large living area as well as lanais on both sides of the house make for lots of room to socialize (or escape to the hammock!). But the best part is Ruth - cook extraordinaire and housekeeper. Her meals (3/day if you want) were delicious and interesting whether it be your own fresh-caught fish or something she picked up at the grocery. She manages everything with grace and a great sense of humor.

There's much to do in Eleuthera, without the crowds of Nassau and other Bahamian islands. You can arrange to go deep-water fishing with Sid or just cruise to the uninhabited islands for snorkeling and a picnic. You can also fish and snorkel right off the beach, as well as kayak and collect shells. Cotton Bay itself is a great place to jog or walk on the road or beach. My favorite activity every day was a nap mid-afternoon, feeling the breezes from both sides of the property and listening to the surf. Paradise!

When I was at this location, I was in paradise. I could not have had a better time and both Ruth and Sid were fantastic. My son and I really enjoyed fishing in the Billfish Tournament. I could not have been more relaxed and I definitely want to return.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

I grew up going to Cotton Bay and still cant believe my grandparents sold the house! I recently returned for the first time in 30+ years and stayed at Sanderling with my wife. Other than the fact that the golf course and the clubhouse are overgrown and unrecognizable, nothing has changed and I mean that in the very best way. Many of the people are still the same and if they have died its their children or grandchildren. The diving, fishing, hospitality and peace and quiet are all world class. We will be back early and often!!
