Standing down at our beach at the end of the trail. The cottage is out of site in this photo.
Like something right off the set of a Gilligan's Island re-run. A jungle hideaway and great beach.
Swimming and feeding the pigs with our Captain is a guest favorite!!!

Also note we do not have Wi-Fi in the cottage. Internet access is with data roaming turned on for your phone. Free Wi-Fi in town just two miles away at a number for places. The Jungle Cottage is an affordable beachfront vacation rental that is perfect for beach fanatics and nature lovers. When you first pull into the driveway you will be greeted by a meandering wooden boardwalk which snakes its way to the cottage between natural fissures in the Earth and foliage. A unique setting and rental experience as you will feel like you are in the Jungle, yet only about 2 miles from town. The cottage is just over 450 sq. ft. including the screen porch. It has AC and is tucked away inside a dense jungle canopy with foliage views from most windows, yet it is also is a beachfront property with a natural walking trail to the ocean. Note; there are no ocean views from the cottage. The beach trail has breathtaking ocean views. It is something right out of a Robinson Crusoe movie. The property borders a government owned nature preserve on one side that extends for miles. Our beach, called Surfer’s Beach, is not only one of the nicest beaches in Eleuthera, but also in the world.The swimming, snorkeling, fishing, spearfishing, shelling, beachcombing are superb. At the right time of year the surfing can be excellent which is fun to watch. Most days the beach is empty. A crowded day is a few folks surfing or someone playing with their dog. We have an outside charcoal grill and an outside shower for rinsing feet nestled in the bush. Waking up each morning to the orchestra of singing birds, grab a cup of coffee and sit in our hanging hammock chairs inside the screen porch is wonderful. Gregory Town is very close and has gift shops, an ice cream store, multiple restaurants and bars, 2 small grocery stores, a liquor store, a gas station and churches. You are totally away from it all, but close to it all. The simple yet cute cottage has everything you need to be comfy, from linens and beach towels to hanging hammock chairs and a beach umbrella. It is an open concept studio style space with one large room. There are glossy hardwood floors and 12 foot open beam ceilings along with exceptional woodworking. Both the inside and the outside screened porch have ceiling fans along with an ECO friendly 23 seer AC system for robust cooling. The porch has high quality deck furniture. There is a sliding glass door and lots of windows to let in a calming natural light. There is a large kitchen with everything you need for cooking complete meals including; a microwave, a full size sink, a full size fridge/freezer and a full size range with oven and range hood. There is a big kitchen island with 4 stools for seating and a beautiful aqua colored glass tile backsplash with complimenting glass hanging pendant lights for a romantic lighting effect. The cabinets are old school hand crafted island style with 100% real wood inside and out, along with beautiful commercial grade bar style wooden counters with a heavy clear shellac. The living room area has a comfy love seat and nice size coffee table with a wall mounted flat screen TV and DVD player along with a nice set of about 50 movies. The bathroom is cute and fully enclosed for privacy along with a tile walk in shower. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS; The cottage sleeps 2 adults comfortably in a queen bed. It can sleep a family of 4 people (with 2 small kids), but it is a tight fit. We have a blow up floor mattress for the 2 kids which can be leaned against a wall during the day. It cannot sleep 4 adults. THE PROPERTY AND YOUR PRIVACY AND ROADS; The Jungle Cottage is a guest cottage and part of a larger property with a main house called Eleuthera Villa which we also own and rent out. The main villa sits way up on the ridgeline and has it's own driveway. The Jungle Cottage sits lower down on the 300 feet deep property and has its own driveway and entrance and is completely separate from the other house for your privacy. There is a laundry facility for the cleaning staff behind a privacy wall as well for privacy. The cottage also has it's own trail to the beach that connects to the main trail. Warning; if you have never been to Eleuthera the roads are poor and dark at night, but that is part of the adventure! There are lots of other great beaches closeby, along with many other island attractions such as; Queen’s Baths, Rainbow Bay Cliffs, Glass Window Bridge, Hatchet Bay Caves, plus many more. Many of the islands top rated restaurant are a less than 10 minutes away as well. More
