Bella Mare - Island Paradise. Ocean Front Cottage With Spectacular Views

Welcome to our island paradise. This recently renovated and elegantly upgraded beach cottage is located in the quiet and serene area of Oleander Gardens just north of Gregory Town. Perched on a hill only steps from a peaceful cove, Bella Mare offers the ultimate in modern conveniences and some of the most beautiful scenery of the Bahamas. Take time out of your stressful lives and relax on our front porch. Enjoy the spectacular view of the Caribbean ocean and your worries will surely fade away. A private beach is only 150 feet away so take time out to enjoy the sun and discover the wildlife while snorkeling in the cove. Away from it all.: Eleuthera - From the ancient Greek word for freedom. Freedom is what you can expect when you visit Eleuthera. Freedom from work, stress, and the pressures of everyday life. This island is truly a paradise away from it all. You are far removed from the glitz and glamor of the casino's of Nassau and the hustle and bustle of the big city. Take your time and enjoy sleeping in, snorkeling in the cove or enjoy the sunset from the porch. The Island.: Eleuthera offers 220 miles of coastline with countless sandy coves and isolated beaches with pure white and pink sands. The snorkeling and fishing are some of the best in the Bahamas. Bonefish can be caught by wading out in front of our house. Swimming and sunbathing are especially enjoyable activities due to the privacy of the many beaches. You can go to the beach and never spot another human being. The Cottage.: The cottage has been lovingly upgraded and decorated by the owners. It features custom made furniture covers, cushions, and window treatments.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful views a stone's throw from the sea
Beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the porch and a short walk to a beutiful beach, that we had for ourselves most of the time. Snorkeling and Kayaking in the sea, just about the perfect getaway.

4/5 Good

A great spot
We loved this spot. Beautiful and relaxing. Great water access for easy daily swim. The bed photos are not what is there and it was lucky we were flexible old ladies, there is a bunk bed not two twins.

5/5 Excellent

Our week at Bella Mare was a joy! The house was clean, quiet and had everything we (myself, husband and 14 year old) needed. We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming and watching sunsets in the neighborhood cove (right across the street). The porch and view were perfect for coffee and cocktails We found the location convienent for exploring the island. Pizza night in Rainbow Bay and the famous BBQ and good bakery in James Cistern (try a loaf of the bread) were an easy drive. The boat to Harbor Island for SCUBA was about 20 minutes away. Gregory Town was close and has a few restaurants and small stores for necessities. We tried all of them! The people we met were very nice, we love Gregory Town and would stay at Bella Mare again.

5/5 Excellent

Well appointed home with a breathtaking view
This home was immaculate when we arrived. The kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals or snacks. There were ample linens for the bathrooms. The layout of the home was perfect for two couples or a family with children.The owner provided all of the information you needed to be comfortable in the home and for site seeing and getting around the island. The neighborhood was very peaceful. We would highly recommend this property for a getaway vacation.

5/5 Excellent

a perfect family vacation!
We had such an amazing vacation and the Oleander community made it even more special! Bella Mare was in a great location for us and the home was perfect for our needs. Oleander Cove was a great cove especially on days when our son was tired from all day excursions- and it was a wonderful place to watch amazing sunsets. We were able to disconnect from the distractions of life and have quality family time that we have not been able to experience in years. Eleuthera is a true family island and the people make it such a special place and have so much to offer- we learned a lot during our week there; including how to hand line on a fishing excursion with one of the Gregory Town locals. Our favorite beach was really close- Gaulding Cay. They say that Eleuthera is not for everyone" and it's true. But I can say that it was for us! Thank you to the Yde family for opening up your home to us and for all that Maurice did to help us with the "learning curve" in getting acquainted with the island. We cannot wait to get back to this little special island!
