Ranked by Vrbo/homeaway as one of the top 10 Most Unique Rentals in the World!!!

If there is a travel ban to Eleuthera or a 14 day quarantine that disrupts your trip we will waive our cancellation policy and offer you a free no penalty reschedule. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING DESCRIPTION SO YOU UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE RENTING. We are one of the most frequently rented properties for under $150 per night on the entire island. We have also earned "Premier Partner" status on VRBO for 3 straight years and "Super Host" status on Airbnb with many positive reviews there. 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. You will not find any vacation rental closer to the Ocean than this one! Sea Spray cottage was just updated on the inside in the summer of 2016 and a new and expanded exterior deck in 2018. 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 water front property called Seven Gables. There has never been any advertising on the Internet, only local word of mouth on the island. The location is perfect situated half way between Gregory Town and Rainbow Bay which are both less than a 5 minute drive. There are three cottages that are rented out on the 2 acre compound, but everyone has there privacy and personal spaces and decks. There is a main house that is vacant and empty and never rented. Maybe one of the coolest things at our rental is just about every day Spotted Eagle Rays swim by the deck. 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" and "Seaside Club" which are local bars. Da Spot in particular is 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. You can also walk to "Front Porch" and "Twin Brothers" which are some of the best restaurants in all of Eleuthera specializing in Seafood, steaks and frozen drinks. All have positive Trip Advisor reviews. 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 a few 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 that sleeps 2 people and an optional floor mattress for a 3rd person. We normally rent to 2 people only, but have gotten many request for a 3rd person. Warning it is a tight fit with not much room for the 3rd person with the floor mattress if you choose that route. The inside has a bright and airy decor, lots of windows and truly amazing views. 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 newer mini fridge and freezer, microwave, hot plate, kitchen sink and freshly painted 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 on the grounds. Cell phones work in the cottage and have good internet with data roaming turned on to check emails and such, but note there is NOT Wi-Fi inside the cottage itself. 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 the deck is totally private once you get up to the cottage. Rarely are the other cottages occupied and 90% of the time 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 5 star high end experience with daily maid service, massages and valet parking this is not for you. The Cove Resort or French Leave Resort would be more your style, but be expected to pay for that! This is an affordable, cute, clean 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!

Sea Spray Cottage. Hatchet Bay. Eluthera Bahamas.
Fantastic property. Nicole and Cecil were very accommodating. Cottage was clean, quiet and relaxing. Loved Hatchet Bay and the entire island. Beach after beach and amazing people.

5/5 Excellent

Breathtaking view
Property very well described. Not big but clean and quaint. Nice little kitchenette for coffee and eggs in the morning. Perfect size for my wife and I for a short stay. Amazing view from deck that overlooks the Caribbean. I recommend printing the guide the host sends with you, it has alot of information about the island. Hatchet bay was a great location with a rental car. No wifi in the cottage but could find some on location and nearby businesses. We used the cooler and beach chairs provided daily. Mattress was firm for sure. All in all a great property which highlighted our fantastic vacation.

5/5 Excellent

Incredible adventure!
My husband and I had an awesome experience staying at Sea Spray cottage! The view was amazing and everything was just as described. The stars at night and the crystal clear water were incredible from the deck! Cecil was there to answer any questions we had and to address any issues. Eleuthera itself is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been! So many natural wonders all in one place! And the shells!!! Our only complaint is that we ran out of time before we could see everything! Can’t wait to come back!

5/5 Excellent

Cozy little cottage with a wonderful view
Unfortunately we only had two days to enjoy this place but we enjoyed it a lot. Communication and organisation in preparation of our trip was perfect and thanks to Marielbys' information material we managed to book a very nice daytrip to the pigs, too. The cottage is small but provides you with the essential equipment (there is a fridge, coffee machine, toaster, hotplate). It's very clean and tidy and a cozy place to stay for 2. Listening to the waves in the evenings let us fall asleep immediately. The deck is a great place to watch sunrise or enjoy a Kalik (bahamian beer) during sunset.

4/5 Good

Nice but,
Good location but not as private as the pictures implied. VERY small. The bed was too small and too hard for both of us so we brought an air mattress, thank God. Also would have liked a change of sheets and towels half way through. But the sunrises and sunsets from that wonderful deck made up for the missing parts. A good location to start from to see north and south Eleuthera. Definitely have the prime rib at the Rainbow Inn on Tuesday, which is only five minutes drive south.
