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 Eleuthera

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.

Things needing updating, don't know how long the kitchen worktop had been damage, (as they mentioned) but looked like it been broken for quite a while.

Very freindly people.

Tranquility with stunning ocean views..... I would love to visit again

  • 5 of 5

The reception from the proprietors was second to none. It was very clean and modern furniture through out. Basically everything you would need at home was there. This was a pleasant surprise for a small quaint island. This made our stay even more enjoyable.

The location was central which is ideal if you are considering exploring both the North and the South of Eleuthra. I highly recommend for mature travelers looking for an escape.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a repeat trip for me at Take Ya Time. The cottage has everything you need for a great Eleuthera vacation. Snorkel gear, beach towels and a kayak are included. The front porch is the place to be with a cup of coffee or wine with the seabreeze blowing. I felt really safe in the neighborhood and that is always important for anyone traveling alone. Make sure to try the Bubba Gump pizza at Rainbow Inn: its walking distance from the cottage if you want to stroll there. I will be back again :)

The Take Ya Time Experience

  • 5 of 5

What am absolutely beautiful place to rest, to do no nothing and yet feel alive, to take a break from the pressures of modernity to Take Ya Time from it all. I never wanted to leave the house for long periods just to enjoy being there on the poach feeling the ocean breeze while reading a book. Leaving the window open and TV off just to listen to the ocean, it was absolutely rejuvenating I feel like a new person. Am looking forward to returning soon just to Take my time and do nothing to just enjoy the environment that Take Ya Time affords . I love the place, what a find, am happy and satisfied with my choice.

Whit Monday Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time, the only problem is I wish we had stayed around the house more and traveled less. Very quiet and relaxing, read all the books you want on as the sun rises over the ocean. Next trip I will be spending much more time at the house. Perfect place for two friends to have a relaxing weekend away!

Great Place in Eleuthera

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 1 semaine en famille dans ce cottage et nous en gardons un très bon souvenir ! La villa était propre et bien équipée.

Il est indispensable d'avoir une voiture pour découvrir l'île qui est magnifique !

Ce cottage présente un très bon rapport qualité prix et nous reviendrons !

Merci encore,

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.
