We are Airbnb Super Hosts which is only given to the very best rental properties on Airbnb. Before we talk about Sea Spray Cottage and it's incredible clifftop location we want to answer a very common question we always get asked. Can we help you get a rental car and also go to the place where you can swim with the pigs??? Yes we can on both questions!!! Eleuthera now has a secret spot on an offshore island very few people know about where we have a guide to take you there. If you book with us, you will receive an awesome trip planner email over 10 pages long including how to arrange the pigs and every other possible thing you would ever need to know about your trip to Eleuthera! If this cottage is booked during your dates with have 2 other equally fabulous cottages on the same property that are most likely available...so just ask.

Now onto Sea Spray Cottage and what it is all about. You will not find any vacation rental closer to the Ocean than this one! Sea Spray Cottage was just recently updated on the inside in the late 2016. The outside deck was replaced and expanded in late 2017. It is an air conditioned vacation rental with direct waterfront located on the calm and beautiful Caribbean side of the island in Alice Town / Hatchet Bay Eleuthera.

It has long been a very popular “locals only” secret on the island and part of a larger 2+ acre property on a gorgeous peninsula called Seven Gables. There has never been any advertising on the Internet, only local word of mouth on the island. The location is perfectly situated half way between Gregory Town and Rainbow Bay which are both only a few miles away. Both towns have highly rated restaurants and bars from TripAdvisor reviews and some fantastic beaches. In addition, right in town you can easily walk from the cottage to some nice beaches and top rated restaurants and bars.

We have a discounted kayak rentals of $30 per day or just $115 per week as an option with your rental. You can walk to the "Da Spot" which is a local bar and one of the islands favorite hangouts with an eclectic mix of locals and tourists. Not a high end nightclub, but an open air hangout that can get pretty lively and also has some great home made island food like homemade mac n cheese and BBQ chicken. You can also walk to "Front Porch" and "Twin Brothers." Both restaurants are highly rates on TripAdvisor reviews. Twin Borthers boasts the only smoothie machine on the island where they make homemade secret recipe local fruit flavored smoothies both with and without alcohol.

There is some great snorkeling right in front of the property and off the point you can see off the deck. There are two local beaches just steps away, along with incredible beaches like Rainbow Bay Beach, Surfer’s Beach and Gaulding Cay Beach just a short car ride away. There some lesser known, yet no less beautiful beaches, less than one mile away that no one goes to so you have them all to yourself.

You can also fish right from the property and catch your own dinner most nights. It is a studio style bungalow with a full bed for sleeping 2 people accompanied by bright and airy decor, lots of windows and truly amazing views. We can sleep up to 3 people, but a warning - keep in mind that is for one person sleeping on a floor mattress and it will be a tight fit for sure. We changed our minimum from 2 people to 3 people because of many folks asking to take along a 3rd person or child. Listening to the ocean each night as you fall asleep along with the gentle trade winds provides for some real peace and tranquility. You have a little kitchen area with mini fridge and freezer, microwave, hot plate, kitchen sink and cabinets along with the basics for cooking and eating. As we said earlier there is air conditioning along with a ceiling fan and Cable TV and WiFi. Please note the WiFi is not in the cottage, but on the property grounds. Cell phones work with data roaming for internet also inside the cottage for most carriers. There is a small table with two chairs both inside and outside. Eating breakfast every morning sitting on top of the ocean with a personal view of the Caribbean Sea is pretty awesome.

Sea Spray cottage sits on roughly two acres of landscaped grounds with some other similar type cottages, but do not worry about privacy as Sea Spray sits out on the peninsula and deck is totally private once you get up to the cottage. Most times the other cottages are totally empty and you have the entire 2 acres to yourself. It is romantic, tropical and overall a neat place to hang out.

You get to see both sunrises and sunsets from this hidden gem on Eleuthera. It is owned and operated by a local Bahamian family that lives right in town so when staying at this cute little rental the money goes right back into the local community directly which is great for the island. The family hand painted much of the art hanging on the walls and they take pride in their rental. They are also an excellent resource for information from a local perspective and have many kayaks for rent. They can do island tours as well when time permits with their schedules and are there to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The price is excellent for what you get compared to other options like a hotel room in this dollar range that is not on the water and no kitchen. If you are expecting a brand new pristine high end rental type villa or top of the line services, we suggest that going to The Cove Resort may be more your style. This is a cute and casual laid back type waterfront cottage and it comes with the world class views. Many people say Sea Spray is the best kept rental secret in Eleuthera!
