About Melisa Groff

I have decided to share the beauty of this Family island with others. Come visit my home :-)

Melisa Groff purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Melisa Groff chose Eleuthera

Rainbow Bay is a quiet, beautiful piece of heaven. Its amazing ocean views from each location constantly provide a changing view of the Atlantic & Caribbean oceans. The small community is a tranquil place where visitors are frequently seen walking throughout the area taking photos of sunrises and sunsets. The 4 accessible beaches allows for beach hopping without leaving Rainbow Bay. Rainbow Bay Inn & Restaurant provides a quick location for entertainment and meals when you wish to leave your cottage. This cottage is about 8-10minutes walking distance to Rainbow Beach; about 3-4mins from Come n Go Beach.

Rainbow Bay is also close enough to several island communities and other beaches to make exploring and day trips an exciting and easy excursion.

What makes this cottage unique

This brand new property has not had the wear & tear of many rental properties and can provide a spacious environment that can be ideal as a base camp for daily excursions and yet peaceful enough for mornings at home drinking coffee and evenings watching the sunset off the L shaped deck. The 8-10 min walk to Rainbow Bay Beach with its tiki huts is perfect for an afternoon of snorkling and sunbathing. Assistance with rental vehicle is provided if needed.

Just like its name, cat nap, a peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The process was smooth, comfortable and easy with Melisa. She was very organized and had all the details to us on time. Because of the villa, our stay was safe, quiet and peaceful. My wife and I had a wonderful time ! I would recommend this location to all. We will definitely rent again!

Perfect Eleuthera Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us! Melissa literally thought of everything, and it makes staying at Cat Nap so easy! We used this home as a base to explore the entire island from North to South. Coming home every night to a relaxing, breezy, beautiful home made our vacation perfect. Highly recommended!

Truly better than a spa

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an escape from the cold weather of Canada and a place that was quiet, serene and private, this cottage was all that and more. So close to beaches and the winows allowed for the Caribbean breeze flowed nicely through the living room. A car is a necessity for exploring the island and Melissa was very helpful with that. If you want to sit back and relax without a lot of tourism type things this is a lovely place to escape it all.
