Peach Perfection!

From Marrakech to Booth Bay Harbor, Peach Cottage is one of the most charming places I have every stayed and the owners, Bob and Kathy, are responsive, efficient and delightful.

The room lay-outs flow, the views of the Atlantic peeking through the garden’s lush plantings are dreamy, the soft breezes refresh and it has a bed that even this princess finds super comfortable.

I never wanted to leave, and neither will you.

The BEST again! Thanks Kathy and Bob…

My husband and I toured Peach House when we stayed at Tops House in December 2013. We decided that it would be a perfect accommodation for me to stay alone. Once again, I had no qualms about wiring a rental deposit in advance. To any traveler who is advised not to do so: you can be assured that the Colemans are legitimate and trustworthy. Once you actually meet them, see their houses and facilities, you will agree!

I rented Peach House upstairs with its wrap around deck and 360 views in March 2014. You can see a bit of the harbor and ocean, sunrise and sunset through many windows and french doors that render the apartment light and airy. Magnificent! And, you can hear the rushing tide in the distance. I enjoyed being at tree top level and feeling the breeze and wind, watching and hearing the birds, seeing butterflies.

The king bed is a treat…most comfortable. There is sufficient room for two to be sure, but I enjoyed having the space all to myself! Everything is spotless, in working order and all that one needs. Kathy consistently provides special attention to her guests. She and Bob, her husband, are terrific hosts; Joe Louis a faithful visitor. For those who may consider staying at any of the Coleman’s houses, Tops, Corn or Yellow, they are spectacular!

My visit also included riding at Oceanview Farm where Angela and Kelley are terrific guides along the beach and through trails. I toured the Leon Levy Plant Preserve for a few hours and met staff there who really know their horticultural and geological history. The guys down at the dock sold me nice lobster tails that made for many meals along with fresh greens from Kathy’s garden. And then of course, there was tea at the library where I met more wonderful residents who shared their lives with me. Lunch and dinner at Tippy’s was excellent, and Elliott’s smiling face a warm welcome back. Again, Victor, from Big E’s (Elliott Rolle) car rental provided excellent service. Thanks to Julianna and Tara at eleutheravacationrentals.net for their efficient handling of arrangements.

Lastly, the sun, sand, surf and and turquoise waters make the day and beckon my return!


Great place, location, owners, everything.

We stayed 10 days in February. Owners Kathy, Bob and Joe the dog were great throughout all of the process of booking and when we were staying (except Joe, of course, who is a dog and hasn’t quite managed to understand how to use email – yet.)

We arrived after all the shops had shut, but Kathy kindly left us a huge container of water, eggs, wine, bread, a lovely veggie lasagne and some wine/beer to keep us going until the shops opened the next morning.

We had the downstairs apartment, which was spotless, well laid out, had all the facilities that were needed including a washing machine outside shared with upstairs. The best compliment to say is that all the photos were a true to how the place actually is. There’s no swimming pool, but the gorgeous French Leave beach is around 15 minutes walk.

We can’t drive, so couldn’t hire a car. Since there’s no public transport and it’s a VERY long island, we knew we’d be based very close to where we were staying. It didn’t prove to be a problem at all. The apartment is on top of the hill between the beach on the east side of the island and and the town of Governors Harbour on the west. The town, with its supermarket and shops, was only a 10 minutes walk down the hill or 15 minutes walk back in the 28c sunny weather. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, the Buccaneer Club became a favourite where the Kalik beer was always cold.

Overall, totally recommended and if you need a place for a few days or a few weeks in the lovely island of Eleuthera, get in touch with the owners and you will not be disappointed by anything.

This was a wonderful choice for a romantic week on Eleuthera. The downstairs apartment was excellent, just as described. We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday afternoon and Kathy met us and had very kindly left us a lasagne, beer and wine for dinner as little was open. The apartment was spacious and beautifully decorated, would love to reproduce it at home. It contained everything needed for a lovely stay, great kitchen facilities, lovely bathroom, plenty of towels, comfortable bed, nice courtyard.

Kathy recommended places to eat, where to buy food, allowed us to pick from her garden and provided great advice.

Would go back to stay tomorrow if it wasn’t so far away. Thank you


Fantastic!!!

The Peachhouse is centrally located on the island which makes it perfect for exploring the island. The house was clean and stocked with all of the amenities needed for a vacation. The owners are exeptionally nice people and we received outstanding service. I would recommend the Peachhouse to my family and friends. Best vacation every!!!!

we had a wonderful time in Kathies and Bobs cottage.

the bed is just amazing, didn’t sleept as good as in these days since a long time.

we explored many places and beaches of the island, but the most beautiful is the one in front of the house!
