Description from owner


Serenity House Eleuthera is owned by the same local Bahamians that operate Sea Spray Cottage which has long been a favorite among travelers being one of the most frequently booked cottages in all of Eleuthera. Serenity House is in the same awesome location as Sea Spray Cottage right in the town of Hatchet Bay with beaches, food stores, bars and restaurants all a short walk away. Of course it has incredible ocean views as well.

Hatchet Bay is a great location halfway between Rainbow Bay and Gregory Town. Eleuthera is 110 miles long and about 1 mile wide in most spots so being in the right location is very important. Hatchet Bay is near most of the islands great attractions and beaches. The central location also allows for easy travel both north and south and you are less than 20 miles from the ferry docks to Spanish Wells and Harbor Island that are very popular day trips.

The house has two spacious bedrooms along with large closets. The sleeping arrangments are as follow; The master bedroom has a queen bed and a fullsize futon sleeper. The guest bedroom has a full size bed. There are two full bathrooms both with tubs, a bright open great room containing the living room and dining room and a nice large modern kitchen with a gas range for the chefs out there. The owners have done a lot of work recently and redecorated the entire space which reflects everything about the beach and a fun vibe. The kitchen is very well stocked for all your cooking needs with a full fridge, gas range as we said, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc. The rest of the house comes with all the normal items such as fresh linens, bath towels, beach towels, etc. There is FREE Wi-Fi and Cable TV and a TV in the living room, and each bedroom. You can see the ocean from just about every room. The best view is from the kitchen where you can do your dishes and see nothing but the emerald sea!

The exterior yard is large with lush landscaping, stone walls, coconut palms and grass throughout. There is a brand new enormous deck off the back of the house along with deck furniture. Enjoy the glorious ocean views and out of this world sunrises with your cup of coffee right from the deck.

The location in Hatchet Bay is convenient to tons of very popular local attractions like the Glass Window Bridge, Blowing Hole, Glass Window water cave, the Rainbow Bay Cliffs, the Hatchet Bay Caves, Rainbow Beach, Hidden Beach, Sumggler's Beach, Surfer's Beach, Land Hamitlon Beach, Twin Sister's Beach, Gaulding Cay Beach, the Queen's Baths and of course those Monday Night Pizza Nights at the famous Rainbow Inn. You can walk and get frozen smoothies at Twin Brothers Bar or walk to a Trip Avisor favorite called Front Porch Seafood Restaurant. There is another Trip Advisor favorite called Da Spot Bar, which is a local watering hole and the Seaside Club Bar. The snorkeling right in the house location is excellent and the owner's brother rents snorkel gear, SUP's and kayaks at a great price.

Hatchet Bay is a safe town with something for everyone. We also have a discounted car rental guy for you to use and the best boat captain in the islands where you can swim with the pigs, feed sharks, fish and snorkel. All in all a great value for a beautiful house in a great location.
