Frequent Asked Questions about Eleuthera and our vacation rental

A rental car is strongly suggested if you wish to view the many beautiful sights and beaches that Eleuthera has to offer. The island is over 100 miles long – there’s a lot to see!
The cottage is located on Panorama Road in the Rainbow Bay development, which is managed by the Rainbow Bay Owners Association. This private subdivision has tennis courts, boat ramp, paved and lit streets, bar and restaurant (Rainbow Inn). For grocery supplies, the Big Rock general store lies along the Queens Highway just as you enter Rainbow Bay. Another options is East & Final store in James Cistern.
The fabulous Rainbow Bay beach is only 5 minutes by car. It is maintained by the community, and has a few shaded picnic tables. Its calm waters are particularly good for swimming and snorkeling. There are a couple of houses on the same road but the Rainbow Bay area (and Eleuthera, in general) is not a crowded place and you will get plenty of privacy.
If you don’t want to use the car, a short walk from the cottage to the north takes you to Twin Beach, a unique small beach with soft pink sand and shady caves to protect from the sun when needed. An equally short walk to the south brings you to Smugglers beach where you can find driftwood, seashells, sea glass and other treasures.
