High Seas is a spacious, hilltop 2 king size bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage with wonderful views over the blue Atlantic waters. Whether sitting on the deck or inside the house you have a view of the water. Make a coffee using the Keurig or drip coffee machine and watch the sunrise from the deck or lounging on the sofas inside the great room every morning.
The large, open-plan great room is airy and cool thanks to its high ceilings and many windows. There is AC in the living area and both bedrooms as well as ceiling fans. Enjoy your meals on the 400 square foot wrap-around deck with two sets of French doors opening onto the deck. With the cool sea breezes, you can watch the waves breaking at James Point, fishing boats from Harbour Island, or a cruise ship sailing past.
The kitchen has luxury appliances, and a central island/breakfast bar for you to prepare your meals and socialize. The master bedroom has a king size bed and stunning sea views. It leads into a large spa-like ensuite bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower. The guest bedroom also has a king size bed. The caribbean-style guest bathroom, accessible from the great room, has a bathtub with a stand up shower.
Wireless high speed internet has been installed, and is available for your use. There is a 32" Smart TV with a Netflix subscription available for your use as well as Apple TV and a DVD player. There is also a local cell phone available which you can buy a cheap plan and turn the cell into a WiFi hotspot zone if the internet goes out.
Check out HGTV's Bahamas Life series, 'This Is Not Los Angeles' to see video of High Seas. You can watch it for free on sling.com if you sign up for 7 days.
There are two single person kayaks located at Rainbow Bay Beach for easy access, four beach chairs, snorkeling gear, inflatables, noodles, beach towels and two large coolers (ice packs in the freezer) available for your use.
My fantastic housekeeper lives three streets away and is available for any questions that arise during your stay. She also has a vehicle rental business and you definitely need a vehicle to explore Eleuthera and to get down some of the beach roads. I will happily arrange vehicle rental for you with pick up from any airport you arrive into.
'High Seas' is located on a very quiet road, with unobstructed views across native vegetation to the sea. At night, the only sound you will hear is the breaking of the waves on the shore, approximately 400 yards away. Look up and see the stars! There is a hammock for relaxing on the deck, lounge chairs on the deck and garden and many beautiful native trees.
The cottage comes with bedding, towels, beach towels and a washing machine. You can dry clothes outside on the washing line. Dries super fast with great weather!
The property is situated in beautiful Rainbow Bay which is a perfect mid way point on the island so you can head North or South and easily explore. Rainbow Bay is a quiet beach community with a particularly lovely beach on the Caribbean side with palapas and kayaks as well as a very popular restaurant, The Rainbow Inn (pizza nights on Mondays and Thursdays); it takes 4 minutes to walk to the restaurant from High Seas.
I have a copy of The Beach Book at the house. This will help you discover all the beaches although it will take a few vacations to see all of them!
A couple of years ago, I island hopped around the Bahamas, only briefly touching on Eleuthera. I decided to go back and properly explore Eleuthera and fell in love with the island. I am British and have lived in Los Angeles for the past 21 years, but dream of retiring in Eleuthera one day. Until then, I am happy to share my piece of paradise with you.
The house was purchased in 2016.
From the photos, to the video, did not do High Seas justice. The minute I saw High Seas in person and stepped into it, I knew this was the place for me.
What makes this house unique is the quietness of the location, combined with the security of living in the peaceful community of Rainbow Bay.

Jackie is a wonderful host and is easy to reach. We rented a car by her suggestion and it worked out perfectly! The property is clean and comfortable! Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea are within walking distance. Jackie provides a cooler, umbrella, beach chairs, and scuba gear which made our trip! Great place to stay if you want to see the most beautiful beaches and feel comfortable and relaxed.

The best house in rainbow and I’ve stayed to a lot. This house everything you can think of needing and more. Breeze was amazing! House was amazing! Everything was amazing! We will be back!!!
Hi Pinky, it was a pleasure communicating with you before and whilst you were at High Seas. It was awesome hearing how much you loved my place and your Mom coming and wanting to stay this summer. I look foward to meeting you when I come to Spanish Wells!

We had a wonderful experience staying at High Seas. From the initial booking, Jackie was very responsive and sent some helpful emails on car rentals, etc. The house is roomy, clean, and well-appointed. The caretaker, Laura, was friendly and always accessible via texting. The location of the property is really perfect. You can easily get up north to Glass Window Bridge, the Queen's Bath, etc as well as heading over to Governor's Harbour in under 30 minutes. One of our favorite spots was the Big Rock General Store operated by Tony and his extended family. They even have a small restaurant that we went to three times! The proximity to both the Atlantic and the Caribbean is unparalleled. Walk down the hill and you are right on the rocky shores of the Atlantic with the waves crashing. A five minute drive has you at Rainbow Bay Beach which is exactly what you think of when you think of a white sand, sapphire blue water beach - except there's nobody else there! We found the entire experience with Jackie and the area to be just what we needed after a year of COVID lockdown!
Hi Bob, thank you for such a detailed, informative review. Love that you made friends on the island and this escape was exactly what you needed after the COVID lockdown. All my best, Jackie

This was our second stay here, we are so comfortable at High Seas and it is very clean. The stars at night are breathtaking! The communication with the owner and the caretaker have been wonderful!
So happy you and Carol returned to High Seas and had a fantastic time on the island. Hopefully you are able to come back next year. Cheers, Jackie

This house is superfood for the soul! The place is centrally located. The views are stunning. The sound of the water and the breeze coming into the house when the doors are open is just lovely. It has all the necessities that you need or want including kayaks at the beach available for use. Some nights were chilly and there was even a warm blanket waiting for me near the bed. I slept very well. It was peaceful and quiet. The owner sent a very thorough instruction guide prior to my trip with house info and suggestions. The car rental agency she provided information for was just perfect and she arranged my reservation. Reasonably priced for a perfect jeep. I’m very happy I went and would return.
Hi Stacie! Superfood for the Soul is a beautiful description of my house :-) I love that!!! I am incredibly happy my house and Eleuthera gave you much needed relaxation from your stressful life. Love that you made friends everywhere on the island and really got the vibe. Hold onto the peace Eleuthera gave you and I hope you come back. All my best, Jackie
