“Absolute paradise!”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2013

Love, love, loved staying here! Not only is the property well kept and beautiful but the owners are amazing people. They are incredibly helpful, very kind, and extremely fun. This was such a fantastic trip with so much to do and so much to explore, but also perfect for just plain relaxing. We highly recommend staying here!

Response from the owner Thank you for coming into our lives. We are so blessed to have guests like you join our little "Island family". It was our pleasure to have you and help guide you along on your journey. Our home is your home....anytime. Love and Sunshine from Gregory Town! Kimy and Terry *p.s....... WOW! the cottage was so clean when you left.....we were stunned........not even a grain of sand!! Thank you for the treasures you left from the sea. They are with the collection in the cottage for all to enjoy.

We married at a nearby beach, close to our new friends -and witnesses- Kim and Terrys home (owners of Starfish cottage) and stayed at the Starfish cottage for our honeymoon -we couldn`t have made a better choice. Everything was just perfect, peaceful, quiet, warm; - swimming and snorkeling the cove just a few steps from the cottage is just fabulous. Kim and Terry are the greatest hosts -and now friends- we`ve ever had and we`ll come back soon. The island with all its lonesome beaches is just a dream, the people are so nice and welcoming. This is a really peacefully place for getting away from it all and clear your mind and soul. I don´t use this term too often, but we feel this place comes close to paradise :o)) - Enjoy!!!

Response from the owner Hello Far Away in Germany! We are so happy that you discovered us here in Gregory Town. Barefoot in the grass or off to the beach, we loved having you here with us. Joining you with Mr. Culmer for your wedding on the beach was pure joy. We will never forget it. Champagne shared at the tiki bar, carried all the way to Eleuthera for your special celebration was magnificent. Come home to visit soon. You are always welcome here with us. Love from Gregory Town, Terry and Kimy

“Trip to Paradise!!!”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2012

There's no better way to describe the place than to say that it was truly paradise. We experienced island life at its finest: ultimate relaxation, privacy and quiet that seemed like a dream, and a feeling of escape that's nearly impossible to describe. We have the best hosts ever! Kimy and Terry upgraded our cottage to Starfish because they are doing some work in the Tamarind tree house at that time. Very nice of them. We love our cottage especially the outside shower or the jungle shower! Ooohh i love to take a shower there everytime we come home from our daily adventures. The cottage has everything you need: clean sheets, towels, cooking pots, utensils, fridge, oven, grill, cooler, floats etc... The property is very serene, very beautiful landscaping, lots of trees, fruits that you are free to take. The place has a magic that will make you feel at home the moment you arrived, that's how we felt. Hearing the water from the dock is soothing...love to sit and relax by the hammock in the morning while having coffee and planning our day's adventure. The beaches here are phenomenal! You dont need to photoshop them to make them look perfect! They have the clearest water we've ever seen. Just gorgeous! People here are the friendliest, we felt like 'celebrities' during our stay because everybody's smiling and waving at us! Hahaha..Cool! We rented a car and we used it explore the island and all the beautiful beaches. We picked up some hitchhikers along the road, mostly locals. We went to Harbour Island for a day trip to see the longest pink sand beach and the lone tree. Driving a golf cart was fun! Oh dont miss the fresh conch salad at Queen Conch, ooohh yum yum yum! Everyone should experience a trip like this at least once in their lifetime. If you are looking for a fantastic vacation away from all the hustle and bustle of life. This is it! Go to Eleuthera Bahamas and look for Kimy and Terry! You will not regret it!

Response from the owner Thank you for coming to visit us. Your beautiful account of our property, cottage and surrounding areas is delightful. Your pictures speak volumes and we appreciate you sharing them with all our guests and potential guests around the world. We do all these wonderful things here just for guests like you! Please come to visit us again. You and Vincent are always welcome with us Rosalee. Hugs from Gregory Town! Stay warm in Canada!!! Terry and Kimy

“Our 2nd home”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2012

We have been going back to our beloved Starfish every year since we first had the honor of finding this hidden gem. It is truly a magical place, a sweet town, with amazing people. Kim and Terry are wonderful hosts,they point you in the right direction and help in every way. just know this isn't a resort so if you need to be pampered and catered to, this isn't the place for you. There are plenty of places to get supply's in town to get you thru your adventure of a lifetime. There's cold beer and deserted beaches to have for your own. We are looking forward to our next visit in Feb/2013

Response from the owner There are no words to describe how much we love our "Island Family". The Starfish Cottage will be ready, the beer will be cold and the rental car in the driveway waiting for your next visit in February. Let's go to the beach up South again! That was soooo fun that day. Thought of you both today. We cooked some fish for lunch with the marvelous spices you brought us! We created another new jungle shower since you have been gone and we planted a new herb garden for your cooking pleasure. Hope you love all the new treasures..............it is a pleasure to do it all for you! Counting the "sleeps" till you arrive. Love from Gregory Town, Terry and Kimy

“This is the real islands of the Bahamas!!!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2012

If you are looking to really see the out-islands of the Bahamas this is the place!!! Kimberly (AKa Mamma Morgan to me) is such an amazing, unique character -- a little eccentric and a lot of charm -- and that describes both her and her property :) Tucked away on the hill of Gregory Town you can see the village below and beautiful views of the water and bay. The Starfish cottage is my favourite and where I always stay. You are ideally located in central Eleuthera which makes daily excursions north and south easy. Kimberly is happy to arrange fishing, kayaking, etc. for you. She has lived on that island most of her life and knows everyone and everything... you'll enjoy her as much as you will enjoy the quaint property. I am missing it so much as I type this... if I could be anywhere right now... it would be there!!

Response from the owner The door is always open for you. Come "home" anytime. Love from the Bahamas! Kimy and Terry

You spur us on with your loving comments to do more and more here for all of you that come to play in the Bahamas . Come visit whenever your busy life permits. All you have to do is call.

“Absolute Paradise - This is what you are looking for!”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2012

Words cannot describe how amazing our vacation was at this little gem. The owners Kimy and Terry are so nice and make sure you have everything you need. The cottage was stocked with all basic supplies and more, and the store was within walking distance. The actual "grocery store" is a bit further away, but we found most everything we needed at the 7/11 that is nearby. This is definitely not a luxury hotel room, but I wouldn't have stayed anywhere else. This little cottage was perfect. We even had TV if we really wanted to watch it, which we didn't much since most of our days we spent outside from sunrise until bedtime. The surrounding property is absolutely amazing, looking right over the water into the beautiful cove of Gregory Town, what a view! The town itself is charming. The locals are very nice and welcoming. Most of our days, we headed straight to Surfer's Beach. I promise it is the best beach we visited on the entire island, and we saw at least 7 or 8. We were the only people on the beach every time we went, except for the occasional surfer. It's such a great feeling to see such beautiful beaches that are not polluted with people. The sand on Surfer's Beach is unbelievable. It's actually "pink" sand and when you look closely you can see all the broken pieces of seashells that make it so beautiful. I brought home jars of it so I can admire it anytime I'd like. We rented a car through Wallace, a great recommendation from Kimy. Other guests staying at a nearby cottage at the time did not rent a car, and it's pretty easy (and safe) to hitch a ride from a local. As far as local food goes, I highly suggest the Laughing Lizard. Also, we went to Daddy Joe's and Twin Brothers and enjoyed the food there too. This is unlike any other vacation I have every been on. If you are truly wanting to find a place where you can get away from it all, you have found it. The only thing I would change is that we left and came home. We will be back soon!

Response from the owner Thank you for choosing the Starfish Cottage for your island getaway. We were delighted you could escape your daily routine and enjoy yourselves so much here. It is such a pleasure to watch our guests discover the pink sand, hidden coves and all the other treasures we have to offer. Wallace is a lovely gentleman and is always on the go with transportation needs as they pertain to our visitors. Please come back anytime........you are always welcome here with us on the cove. Sunshine, Pink Sand and lots of love........from the Bahamas! Terry and Kimy

“Hidden Paradise”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2012

We have stayed with Kimmy and Terry on 2 occasions (our 3rd holiday at Starfish is coming in less than 5 months...but who is counting :)This little gem of a cottage is situated in a quaint, friendly town which is centrally located to all the fun attractions and the many, many beaches found on Eleuthera. Our hosts, Kimmy and Terry, could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They know the island inside and out and are always available to give tips on places to go or to assist in anyway. Our cottage was comfortable, clean and the outdoor shower was a wonderful touch. The island has such a warm, relaxed feel it is easy to slip right into the mood of the people. The gorgeous beaches are secluded and often without people - the water is clear and warm. You get the best of both worlds with the calm Caribbean on one side of the island and the rolling atlantic on the other. The best value for your dollar, hands down! We are hooked and anxious to return!

Response from the owner What can we say? We love your visits too! You running down to the dock in your bright sarong when the beautiful sailboat pulled up at our dock, laughing and heading off to the beach with some cold Kaliks in your cooler or relaxing on the property, it is always wonderful to have you. We await your return in the Spring! Sunshine from the Bahamas! T and Me

“It was amazing!”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2012

Great rental! Kimmy and Terry were great hosts! When we first arrived Terry gave us a tour of the property and after that they let us do our own thing. The cottage was great for my boyfriend and I. There was a kitchen and we cooked ourselves dinner every night after we had a drink on their dock and watched the sunset. During the day we took the kayaks out, went to nearby beaches and took a day trip to Harbor Island. I would defiantly recommend renting the Starfish Cottage!

Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review. We enjoyed your visit here with us at the Starfish Cottage. Watching you fishing, kayaking from the dock and enjoying all the property has to offer....makes us so happy. Please come back anytime. You are always welcome here with us!
