About Josette Major

We are a Bahamian couple who moved from Nassau to Eleuthera in 2012 seeking peace and tranquility for our family. We have an established construction business where we love to make dreams come to reality with beautiful but affordable homes.

Josette Major purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Josette Major chose Rainbow Bay

A place to just settle back, unwind and relax in a comfortable and peaceful place for an affordable price. Located in a great place to feel fantastic Atlantic Ocean breezes, minimize the bug invasion and be central enough to go to any part of the island

What makes this cottage unique

We offer an inclusive service to our guests which makes your vacation planning easy. We offer a pick up service to and from the airport to the cottage and arrange a vehicle rental. We offer complimentary use of the kayak and snorkel gear to adventure offshore. We offer ourselves for any help necessary as being in a foreign place can often leave many questions unanswered. We are here to make this your best vacation ever.

Comfortable, clean and good location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent contact with Josette and Delano. They are nice, very helpful and work hard to propose the best to their guests.

The house itself is well maintained and clean. We had everything we needed for cooking and the washing machine and dryer are useful.

On Eleuthera it is easy to find farmers selling fruits and vegetables, and fishermen selling fish.

Beautiful cottage and near one of our favorite beaches - Rainbow Bay

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a stay in Eleuthera the Take ya Time Cottage is a great choice for the price. It is new, clean and beautifully furnished. I stayed with my husband and three children (16,14 and 8). Plenty of room for all of us and centrally located to many of our favorite beaches. The kitchen is very modern, so are the bathrooms and they had a washer and dryer! There were plenty of extra blankets, towels and they had things like dish soap, paper towels and washing detergent to get you started. We also loved bringing the kayak to Rainbow Bay.

Josette and Delano were wonderful. They made sure we had great directions and were willing to help arrange transportation though we had already rented a car (highly recommend in Eleuthera). One evening of our stay we were hoping to unwind with a family movie as they have a broad selection of DVD's. We had difficulty with the VCR so I emailed Josette within a few minutes Delano was at our door with a new VCR and got it hooked up in minutes. Just incredible hospitality.

Our family enjoyed reading the guest book to learn about other travelers adventures on Eleuthera and maps and book on local beaches was great too!

We will be back! thank you Josette and Delano

Beautiful, Perfect Location, Home Away & Experience for 1st Time Visitors to Eleuthera!

  • 5 of 5

First, yes the cottage is just like the pictures! Now that is out the way, here we go. It was just divine! Just got back, I mean literally. COMMUNICATION: Communication before arriving was consistent, which is amazing considering, their schedule. Remember they work too. If not in a couple of hours, I got a response by sometime the next evening. VILLA: Clean and really well organized. You are provided with grill, new bar soap, towels, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, snorkel gear, extra linens, pots, utensils, coconut trees & aloe plants in yard. Two people can easily sleep on the comfortable couch. There is even a book on how to get to the Beaches on the island and island map. Very helpful for going off the beaten path. Binder about the restaurants with menus. LOCATION: Perfect for first time visitors! The house is easy to get to and is located right in the community on off the street adjacent to Rainbow Inn. If you can get back to Rainbow Inn you can get back to the house. On the back half of the community right on the Atlantic are two beaches - Twin Bay (not in a beach book) and Hidden Beach. You can walk there if you like or drive your car. It is about at 10 minute walk to Twin Bay. I know everyone pushes stay in Governor's Harbour, but if you want to visit the North and South Side of the Island, this location is best. It is about an hour from North Eleuthera (if you don't drive like locals ... LOL). Governor's Harbour is about 40 minutes south. TRANSPORTATION: Josette, offered to arrange transportation for us and we were trying to find someone that took credit card just so we didn't have to carry that additional cash on us. We ultimately ended up going through Josette and booking Isreal. We truly are glad we did. The price was more than comparable to the other rentals that required a deposit, etc. It is a cash only transaction so be aware of that. If needed to use a credit card, send yourself a PayPal or Google invoice and transfer money to your bank at least 7 days before your trip. GROCERY STORE: Best one close to house we like is East & Last in James Cistern next to E&V Liquor. Shell Gas Stations Grocery Store in Governor's Harbour or as soon as you leave N. Eleuthera airport there is a large warehouse like one there. We didn't stop there but were told of that one. These we found had the best non-tourist prices. LASTLY, Josette and her family are just amazing! We look forward to staying at one of their properties again

Just right in so many ways!

  • 4 of 5

Take 'Ya Time is the cutest little cottage with a view of the Atlantic and the cool sea breezes blowing through open windows! Everything we needed was provided during our month- long stay. The cottage is located within one of the best areas on the island. You will definitely want to rent a vehicle as it will allow you to explore the whole island and meet the friendly people who live there. Rainbow Bay is centrally located on the island so it's just a matter of choosing your entertainment for the day. The beaches are breathtakingly beautiful ( especially Light House and Preachers Cave)! Josette and Delano provided a lot of good information upon our arrival and were available throughout our stay for any directions or questions we needed answered. I highly recommended you leave the office at home and get out and enjoy the island.

Perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

This well-equipped cottage was the perfect place to stay for our first trip to the beautiful and adventurous island of Eleuthera! It's location is very convenient for travel around the island to explore, and there are restaurants nearby that are great, too. The owners were very hospitable, they helped arrange transportation for us, and ensured we had everything we needed. Their recommendations were great, and they were extremely pleasant to deal with! The accommodations were very clean, well decorated, and taken care of. It provided us with a comfortable resting place before our next days adventures... Thanks again for a wonderful place to stay, and can't wait till we're back!!

Car: recommended

Take 'ya' Time is situated between James Cistern & Hatchett Bay located on the Northern side of Eleuthera. There are numerous beautiful beaches and local restaurants to visit or perhaps a day excursion to Harbour Island or Spanish Wells to possibly do boating or deep sea fishing. Venture and drive from one end of Eleuthera to the next and visit all the of historic site locations, blue holes or caves.
