About Frank & Carol Policastro

We have been married for 39 years with 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren. It has always been a dream to own a get away, and Eleuthera is just the most beautiful, peaceful, low key place that we could imagine. We have been running a family owned and operated business for over 30 years, and our little cottage just gives us an amazing place to unwind! We are from Connecticut and love motorcycling, adventure and the beach. Rainbow Bay has been our vacation spot for 10 years and we could not be happier. The people, fishing and the BEACHES are awesome. So many beaches to choose from. The view from the Glass Window Bridge just takes your breath away.

Frank & Carol Policastro purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Frank & Carol Policastro chose Rainbow Bay

We loved the peaceful street, ocean breezes and close proximity to Rainbow Bay beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Satellite TV & WiFi available. Sitting on the front porch and watching the sunset is a pleasure. At night you almost feel like you can pull the stars from the sky - they seem that close.

A rental car is necessary to get to local beaches and restaurants. If you wish to rent a car, we recommend Hilton Johnson at 1-242-335-6241

Great location,relaxing,clean,all the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

This home and vacation was just what the doctor ordered. The owners and their manager of the property Marisa were very helpful and responded to our every need, which was minimal considering their home is perfect. ELUTHERA, is defiantly not for everyone, but once there you will want to go back. The Department of tourism did an excellent job with dealing with visitors that needed to be transported to the other end of the island due to a bridge out. The owners gave us suggestions for car rental, Hilton was very helpful and had a lot of Patience when dealing with our arrival. The people of this island have the same demeanor, so pleasant and calm and helpful. The beaches are amazing, we snorkeled at Rainbow Bay beach Hidden Bay Beach.we spent all 11 days exploring the island,,so much more to explore we will be back. We had the best pizza at Rainbow Inn . Leo Rose a great sunset bar had the best fish taco and conch fritters, they have a barbaque on Tuesday nights, food exceptional best ribs, service and staff wonderful, great entertainment we visited this spot many nights. We spent many days at surfer beach and meet a lot of people who spend months on this wonderful island. We meet Pete from Gregory Town and rented a surf board from him. The largest food store is up North by airport but each town has its own place to shop, we shopped at Big Rock which is close to the house, Island farms further down 15 minutes from house good for produce and many specialty items. Govenour Harbor bakery was amazing, off the main road but a good find. We spent a half day at Leon Levy Preserve a must. Beer a little expensive wine was reasonable Rum the best bet for your money. Traveling the main road is some what a challenge and some spots I would recommend renting a SUV. We felt very safe and welcomed by everyone we meet. We went to the local fish fry Govenours Harbor. It was nice all local people and the school marching band even entertained us. We went to Targum Bay a bit of a ride South but worth it boats come in around 3 we got red snapper and trigger fish and fresh lobster, all fresh having a house fully stocked with all we needed to come home and coook. the nights we hung out cooked dinner went to Rainbow Bay beach for sunset and came home to star gaze, it is amazing at night its like you can just touch the stars,. There is no doubt we will be back I miss this home . we spent everyday out and had this wonderful clean and so perfectly decorated place to chill

Owner's Response: Hi Kathleen. Thank you for your wonderful review of our cottage. You have confirmed the fact that Frank and I must go to the Leon Levy Reserve. Most of the time we just chill. I hope that everything is going well for you back home, and we are so happy that you really did get to enjoy the island. Take care, Carol and Frank

We had a great stay at beach nuts. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and Melisa was very helpful on the island. The house is very well stocked and has everything you need! We would stay here again for sure when we come back!

Excellent Property

  • 4 of 5

When vacationing you want to experience all the comforts of home, this property does just that.

Walking distance to a beautiful beach, a fabulous restaurant close by and a food store within five minutes drive. The property overlooks the water. My wife and I spent a most enjoyable week here, there will be a re-union.

Beachnuts tropical vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Beachnuts. The cottage is immaculate & well stocked with towels, linens, dishes, snorkel equipment, beach chairs & even a cooler to use for your day at the beach. Its centrally located & is incredibly restful. The air conditioner cools the cottage quickly. We loved discovering the island & made it all the way down to Cape Eleuthera & up to Harbor Island. We loved Ten Bay Beach & Gaulding Cay beaches. We loved Pascals & LeoRose's restaurants. Only recommendations is that we needed measuring cups & also would have liked to have known that there was recycling at the garbage so we would have separated the recycling. Otherwise, we loved our stay & I totally recommend Beachnuts.

Excellent stay! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at beach nuts was truly wonderful. The house is so well Maintained, clean, well stocked, great location, so comfertable, furnished nice. Made our trip one of our favorites. The only improvement would be the beds. I would prefer a queen and a little less noisy.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd trip to Eleuthera. The cottage is very clean, updated, is conveniently located near our favorite towns and has plenty of amenities for your stay. The air conditioners cool the place within minutes. The owners provide towels, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment and a cooler for the perfect day trip to the beach. Our favorite beaches were Kokodimama and Gaudling Cay. Snorkeling at Rainbow Beach was the best in my opinion. We also saw a great live performance featuring local artist Dr. Seabreeze at LeoRose in James Cistern. They also have the best tasting burgers we have found on Eleuthera. The pineapple tarts from Dis and Dat bakery in Gregory Town are simply delicious. Eleuthera is paradise and Beachnuts is the perfect place to stay while vacationing. We would love to return some day. Thank you for a lovely stay.
