About the property

Eleuthera's Best Kept Secret

The Palm Tree Cottage is the perfect place for relaxation! We are tucked away in the secluded Whale Point neighbourhood in North Eleuthera which is just a few yards north of the world-famous Glass Window Bridge . By boat we are also 5 minutes south of the prestigious Harbour Island. The cottage is the ultimate getaway for couples, families, or travelers just looking to unwind and enjoy nature. The property is situated on a cove which serves as a nursery for marine life and is teeming with wildlife. From the dock you can observe the many sea turtles, fish, sting rays, and maybe even one of the juvenile sharks! You won’t fully enjoy the surrounding location until you’ve explored the cove via kayak and experience the the wild life swimming beneath you.

The cove is always quiet, calm, and shallow - a stark difference from the Atlantic Ocean, just a few yards across the street. Imagine being able to wake up and have a cup of coffee overlooking the serene shallow waters of the cove, going for a swim, and then walking right across the street and deep sea fishing off the rocks. There is a beach within short walking distance of our private dock or you can make the quick commute to Harbour Island and experience the world-famous Pink Sand Beach.

Harbour Island also has a wide variety of things to do. If you are looking for fine dining, nightlife, or a spa day, Harbour Island has something to offer. Harbour Island also offers SCUBA trips, excursions, and deep sea fishing trips. The ease of accessibility to Harbour Island is definitely an advantage of staying with us. We have so much to offer and look forward to hosting you!

Car rental is mandatory as there is no public transportation or Uber on the island. If interested in boat rental, I can assist in setting that up for guests.

About Dewitt Pratt

My name is Dewitt Pratt, but you can call me DC. I was born and raised in The Bahamas and reside in Nassau. I am not the owner, but I manage the property for my mother. If you need any help regarding your trip, please do not hesitate to ask!

Why Dewitt Pratt chose North Eleuthera

My father built this cottage years ago after visiting Eleuthera and instantly falling in love the island. He passed away some years ago and this cottage holds many special memories for me. I ask that guests have respect for the property and treat it as it were your own home.

What makes this house unique

This property sits on the mainland Eleuthera, just north of the Glass Window Bridge. The property sits on a shallow, private bay full of marine life and right across the street is the Atlantic Ocean! We are a 5 minute boat ride from Harbour Island and have our very own dock should you wish to order a water taxi or rent a boat for your stay.

Scenic, great base for exploring, nice dock

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for a couple staying four nights and exploring the rustic beauty of the North half of Eleuthera. Dewitt did a great job communicating with us on the check in / out process. Best features: off beaten path (need 4x4), on water w/dock, great WiFi, good water pressure, screened windows, great AC, very quiet, chairs on porch and dock for reading. Sitting on the dock we saw turtles, rays, fish, a small shark and beautiful sunsets. Plenty of linens. There is some good dining within 15 min drive if you don’t want to cook.

Amazing snorkeling!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. On day one, we saw turtles, a nurse shark, a sting ray, and star fish, all from the deck. DC replied to all questions, immediately. Ray took us around for a snorkeling tour, and a trip to Harbor Island. Well worth it.

Another amazing trip to Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

Dewitt’s cottage was a great place to unwind and relax. This is our 3rd trip to Whale Point/Bottom Harbour part of north Eleuthera. This is a quiet bay where there are lots of turtles and rays that are frequently visiting the dock and beach area all day. We utilized Dewitt’s car which was so convenient. Ray met us at the airport and it was great to see a friendly and familiar face. Ray has been our water taxi drivers during our first 2 trips. We had everything we needed to enjoy our week’s stay. We stopped at the grocery store and liquor store both not far from the airport. We did have a few dining options with Daddy Joes being one and a few on Harbour Island that Ray ferried us to and from. The cottage has a great dock to sit on and relax all day. There is a beach at low tide that you can walk all the way over to The Other Side a new resort. This is about a 15 minute walk. We truly enjoyed our time at Palm Tree Cottage.

gined it. Very quiet, and peaceful. Swimming with the turtles, kayaking, and reading books on the dock and porch was so much fun. We wouldn't change a thing and can't wait to be there next year.

Kayaking in the cove is AMAZING. Watch the turtles, fish and sting rays swim right under you and enjoy the crystal clear water and all it has to offer.

Snorkeling is also a great way to explore the surrounding area. We have snorkel gear for your enjoyment. Once tide is high it is safe to dive off the dock and go for a swim.
