So much potential...

  • 3 of 5

Our little villa was super clean, well equiped, quite comfortable with a nice view and all. It's just that the little village of Gregory Town nearby has very little to offer and our guest could have been a little more informative about what is offered.

Owner's Response: So sorry you did not care for our little village and were so sick while here. The flu has been all over and being sick on vacation can be a real bummer. Hope our warm sunshine helped heal you after coming from snowbound Quebec. Our many travelers love the charm of sleepy little Gregory Town. This is a beach lovers and explorers paradise. We feel our listing shows the quiet charm of our area quite well. You told us you worked here at club med years ago and wanted to share our beautiful island with your ladyfriend. Nothing has really changed. Simple and beautiful. That is Eleuthera. Thank you for leaving our adorable little cottage clean and tidy. We enjoyed meeting you. We hope you feel better. Sorry you were so sick while here. Beautiful Cottage in Sleepy Caribbean Village

Edge of the World Properties - Seashorse Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay and get away from it all, chill out, unwind, relax, walk pink sand beaches and recharge your batteries. Eleuthera is beautiful, quiet, rustic in places, unspoiled and uncommercialized. Do not expect Nassau and as the bumper sticker proudly states "Eleuthera is not for everyone".

Best vacation spot ever!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this property after staying here a few years ago. The owners are extremely welcoming and always take care of their guests. they also provide insight and recommendations on where to go. The seahorse cottage was perfect for my husband and I. It has a beautiful view of the water and a huge porch that is great to drink morning coffee on. We love to kick off our shoes as soon as we arrive and hang in a hammock or by the pool. Grounds are beautiful and tons of fresh fruit growing on the property. We hope everyone else enjoys this hidden gem as much as we do!

Even though words do not do it justice below is our attempt!

  • 5 of 5

To explore was the plan for our recent trip to Eleuthera, Bahamas. The journey began with the choice of accommodations. Prior trips to exotic locations had us at resorts which, upon recollection, have them seemingly blending into one. The only identifiers were the excursions when we were thrust into the native land experiencing what the island had to offer. It became obvious – spend our time on location experiencing what the island had to offer.

We decided upon a quaint cottage at the Edge of the World Properties situated in Gregory Town, Eleuthera. Beginning with the booking confirmation, we became members of an elite group – family to Terry and Kimy Johnson, the owners. We were added to a private Facebook group where we had access to not only the owners, but others who have stayed before us.

There were three accommodations to choose from and we chose the Seahorse cottage. The photos confirmed this space to be ideal for our journey’s wants/needs. The cottage contained only two rooms – a half bathroom and a great room containing a queen bed and a kitchenette with every need met for cooking our meals. We had the option of two showers, both outdoors, one with only cold water and another supplying hot water.

What at first seemed odd, we were instructed to simply ask upon arriving in Gregory Town, how to find “Terry and Kimy’s place” and we did just that. This was our first introduction to the incredible hospitality of the locals.

Kimy, Terry, and Morroco (their dog) greeted us, Terry gave the grand tour. The cottage was exactly what we had anticipate, and then some. Our explorations took us all over the island, but we would spend a lot of time on property as well taking in the breathtaking view of the cove and witnessing many gorgeous sunsets from the private dock.

We were mostly prepared by reading comments and asking questions of the hosts and prior visitors. We learned that packing food was a must as food can be costly if you choose to eat out. I recommend experiencing the local cuisine but, if on a budget, cooking is the solution and our cottage had almost every necessity to do just that. We also learned that there are bugs to endure, but only if you’re lucky. I endured, my friend never had a single bite.

This vacation became a new standard by which future trips will be planned. An experience like none before; I cannot wait to return as so many have over the 27 years that the Edge of the World Properties has hosted paradi
