Hatchet Bay, Eleuthera

Before we describe COCONUT COTTAGE we do not have any reviews because the property was just recently listed with VRBO/HoneAway. However we have many other properties with listed and you can be assured we offer a great experience for our guests. We have tons of other great reviews for many of our other properties to give you some piece of mind. We also supply all of our guests an awesome 10 page trip planner document that covers everything from air travel and car rentals to the best beaches and restaurants and everything in between!!

Now for our description; Coconut Cottage is an affordable rental located in Hatchet Bay in the central part of the island not far from many of the island's great attractions. We have other rentals right in this area and most people love the location and state it was very convenient to a lot of fun stuff to do. The cottage is tucked among a small grove of mature coconut palms with a boardwalk leading to a an elevated deck with wonderful ocean views. The deck has chaise lounges and that is where most people hang out during their stay! Coconut Cottage is truly a hidden gem, with a local vibe, on a large private fenced in lot.

Along with that privacy you can still easily walk to beaches, bars, restaurants and grocery stores right in town. "Front Porch Seafood Restaurant" is ranked the 3rd best eatery on the entire island and "Da Spot Bar" is another island favorite per TripAdvisor and both are a short walk from the cottage. There is also Twin Brothers Seafood Restaurant which makes yummy cracked conch at a great local price. They also make tasty frozen drinks, with or without alcohol, made from exotic fresh grown island fruits. Both locals and tourists alike drive from all over the island for the frozen drinks! Tell Danny the smiley faced bartender Cecil Junior sent you over.

The property is nicely landscaped and filled with mature vegetation such as; Coconut Palms, fruit trees and Hibiscus bushes. The original classic Bahamian cottage was completely gutted and redone in 2018 by the owner, one of the very top builders in Eleuthera. It was transformed from a traditional Bahamian style small house into the perfect tropical vacation getaway with air conditioning. It is an open style cottage with a flowing and peaceful design. There is a nice hand made wooden bedframe with a comfy queen bed, small living room with a love seat fouton sleeper along with FREE cable TV and FREE Wi-Fi. There is a full kitchen with a microwave, range/oven and a full size fridge/freezer along with a toaster, coffee maker, wine glasses, kitchen utensils, plates, bowls, etc. Basically everything you need to cook in house. There is a large bright full bath with a custom tile walk in shower. There is a small dining table and 2 chairs inside as well. Local tropical island art painted by well known artist Daniel Caldwell adorns the walls, along with a nice decor to complete the space. The cottage is quiet and cozy with nice floors and many windows for lots of natural light. There is a fabulous elevated deck that allows for amazing sunrises and sunsets. There is an outside grill for grilling your fresh fish and lobster. Lastly, there is also an outside shower.

If you want to avoid tourist traps and are the type of traveler that loves to find the beauty of emersing yourself into the local culture, of a safe and friendly town in a great island location, this is your place!

    The cottage its self was well kept but, you don’t have any ocean views from the cottage, there is a home that was built that blocks the views. The “beach” is about a 3-5 minute walk but is right by a graveyard and Is rocky. Twin brothers and the front porch are both great restaurants BUT Da spot I wouldn’t suggest, trash everywhere and smells awful. The hot water in the cottage would only last 1-2 minutes, WiFi didn’t work and there were cockroaches in the cottage as well. You will have to rent a car if you want to go to beach, or do anything really. Roosters will start crowing at 4 am and will not stop. We ended our stay At coconut cottage after 3 nights and went else where.

    Un très bon rapport qualité / prix pour les Bahamas et

    Une maison agréable avec un jardin sympa avec vue sur mer. Bien située dans le tiers supèrieur nord de l' île , les documents transmis par l'hôte sont bien pratiques pour découvrir l' île.

    Amazing Stay at Coconut Cottage

    We enjoyed our stay at Coconut Cottage. The listing was represented exactly as specified. It was the perfect little space for 2 of us. It was off season so everything on the island was a little dead and slow but we still enjoyed every second of our stay. The location is definitely outside of the usual tourist spots which is great if you're happy to mingle amongst the locals, but could be an inconvenience if you do not have a rental car. The cottage was well stocked with utensils and supplies. Even some bug spray which was nice! The bed was very comfortable which is usually my number one priority. The little deck in the back was the greatest relaxation spot. We laid out on the chaise lounges every night listening to music, listening to the waves and watching the stars. We only experienced minor inconveniences during our stay. The WiFi only worked for us on the first day, but I'm sure Cecil would have fixed ASAP had we informed him. But we were happy to disconnect and enjoy our vacation so we never let him know. I would definitely recommend this little place for the price. Especially if you want to mix in with the locals. My only other suggestion would be a board game or deck of cards for off-season nights when the island is slow :)

    Beautiful cozy place

    This property was in Hatchet bay close to many different expeditions from exploring a cave, snorkeling, and experiencing the local culture and food. I would strongly recommend staying here!

    So close to 3 beaches. Great drinks and food. Friendly locals make this a pleasure to be on vacation. Hatchet Bay is the perfect location to travel North and South to so many attractions and beaches. Had a wonderful time.

    Clean, quaint cottage in a great location. We made a phone call to Cecil to borrow some snorkeling gear because our gear was in our suitcase sitting in Nassau after we had issues with a cancelled flight and Cecil made a phone call to family which resulted in our luggage presenting at the airport within hours, wish we wouldn't' have waited two days to call him! We sat on the deck every morning and evening, it was beautiful, a truly unforgettable vacation! I highly recommend the Coconut Cottage!

    Basic but nice!

    Top deck a plus to enjoy the view. Beach just down the road was nice; lots of shells. This spot was basic, but just what we needed for a 1 night stay. Bed and futon were comfortable. Clean; good AC. Would rent this location again.

    Great little house

    We had a wonderful week in Eleuthera. The house was nice and clean when we arrived, and Cecil was very helpful with everything. This place is everything you need for a great stay on the island.

    I was traveling on foot with just myself and a backpack. Hatchet bay welcomed me, and the coconut cottage was a blessing and easy to get to! Everything you’ll need for your stay is there. Thank you for being a part of my journey to Eleuthera!

    Coconut Cottage is a simple, lovely accommodation with an ocean view. It was well maintained and met all of our basic needs. We enjoyed living in a village and meeting local people who couldn’t have been friendlier. Our landlord was helpful and very welcoming. Our favorite nearby restaurant was the Rainbow Inn. The Eleutheran weather, beaches and views were spectacular! It was difficult to leave.

    Nice Hatchet Bay location with beautiful views and great beach access !

    We greatly enjoyed the coconut cottage and the views from the observation deck/private yard ! Great place to enjoy morning coffee, resting, relaxing and staging daily adventures ! Cecil Mccardy. Jr. was very generous and a fine neighbor/contact whenever we had questions or needed anything. The calm waters and visibility while snorkeling just below this Caribbean-side property were as good as any I experienced on the island during our stay ! Thank you !

    Quaint and private little cottage with a view!

    Spent the last two days of our honeymoon trip at this clean and new little cottage. Tommy was super helpful and accommodating in getting our stay set up as we reached out last minute to see if his property was available. We lucked out and were super grateful for their hospitality! The cottage has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and cozy! Enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck at sunrise and a nice mango rum drink at sunset. We like to explore, fish and surf during the day. We have lots of friends in Gregory Town and we spend a lot of time at Surfers Beach. This property is a short drive to all our favorite spots and within walking distance to some cool bars and restaurants in Hatchet Bay. Truly comfortable at the Coconut Cottage!
