The house is built to take advantage of its location on the water with bedrooms and living area facing the ocean. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed; the second bedroom has twins that can be converted to a king. Plenty of linens provided. While rates quoted are for 2 persons, this house works well for 2 couples because of the way it is laid out with bedrooms on each end and a common living area in the center. Bedrooms and living area open to the front deck and water. Each bedroom has its own covered sitting area that joins the front deck. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is well-furnished. Or, guests could elect to have a true Bahamian meal cooked for them at the house by contacting Sue Knowles; her number is posted at the house. Many local restaurants are within easy driving distance to the house. The property offers privacy. Serenity Cove home is tucked back in a cove and sits in the center of three lots, all owned by the property owner. Watch the night life on the water with the help of high-beam lighting that covers the cove area. Ten Bay Beach is one of the nicest beaches on Eleuthera; great for sunbathing, swimming, walking, and snorkeling right from the beach. Vacationers enjoy getting into the water in front of the house for swimming and snorkeling, or going to the beach which is a short 50 yards through the water. Many folks vist the entire island, but say their favorite place is right at Ten Bay Beach! A favorite past time is feeding fish from the deck. Serenity Cove offers one 2-person Gemini kayak and 2 single Perception Tribe kayaks with gear. The deck on this house is high and over coral rock. We always caution folks with small children. If you are an island visitor, you realize the tiny no-see-ums also love the area. We recommend that visitors who are sensitive, bring needed repellent. Water shoes are also recommended to avoid the sea urchins. The wrap-around deck offers you sun (or not) from 3 locations. Guests have explored this island from top to bottom and have found great beaches to explore. Many folks enjoy traveling south to Tarpum Bay to purchase fresh fish from the docks; wait until mid-afternoon. We recommend reading the guest book for ideas, and also entering your own for others to explore. Directions to the house: On Queens Highway, travel 14 miles south of Governor's Harbour airport; roughly 4 miles south of Palmetto Point. After your pass a small sub-station with transformers enclosed in a chain-link fence (on you right), the road to Ten Bay development will be on your right (about 1.5 or less miles). On right, look for sign that has property owners listed. Follow that road for about .8 mile; the house is on the right; palm trees lining drive to house.

Located 8 miles south of Governor's Harbour, the capital of Eleuthera. Walker's Cottage is the 5th house from the beach and has maximum seclusion on both sides of it.
One of the main features of this house is its location. In front of the house is a wide cove that is housed by grouper, yellow tail and other fish. Visitors are often delighted to see rays and manta rays swim by, and an occasional nurse shark. It's fun to feed the fish from the large back deck. Flood lights light up the cove at night to showcase the night life on the water.

Just what the doctor ordered. Serenity Is an apt name for this place as it was indeed. We had a great time for two weeks with great views of Ten Bay Beach. We counted five people on the beach once so it was never crowded. Lots of fish around the deck including, rays, and barracuda. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was well stocked. Car rental was easy. We didn’t even need the AC as with the doors open the breeze provided natural ac. I would rent again in a heartbeat. Thanks for allowing us to share your home

We are glad that you enjoyed your two week visit to the island and Serenity Cove. Yes, the island beaches are never crowded. Ten Bay beach is one of the best on the island because of its location. We are close enough to restaurants and shopping but far enough away that the beach area is usually quiet. Because the house is tucked back into the cove, fish enjoy the “front yard.” One of the nice features is that we own the two adjoining lots so these will not be developed. Snorkeling around the coral ledges offers you an abundance of aquatic life. So glad the house met your needs. Please visit again!!
An amazing property. Perfect location. The view from the balcony was unrivaled. Wonderful!

So glad Serenity Cove worked out for you and your family. Please visit us again. And thank you for your review. We appreciate those who take time to give us feedback. We love the island, and we enjoy hearing that others do as well.
My wife and I along with another couple just returned from Eleuthera last week completing our stay at Serenity Cove. The place exceeded our expectations! The views off the back deck were spectacular as we could see trumpet fish, barracuda, sting rays in the water and a beautiful view of Ten Bay Beach in the distance. The two single kayaks and one double kayak were put to good use allowing us to snorkel around the cove. We saw lobster, lion fish and an assortment of coral right out front. The kitchen was well equipped, bedrooms very spacious with king size beds in each one. Two separate bathrooms and a spacious living room made this place perfect for two couples. The location is in the middle of the island allowing us to drive to either end in about an hour. Make sure to rent an SUV to get access to the remote beaches. Rock and Nell were fantastic hosts, giving us great instructions on things to do and where to shop for food, or eat out. One of the best suggestions was for us to go to the dock in Governor's Harbor to get the fresh fish brought in by the local fisherman. We cooked most of our meals at the house, with breakfast eaten on the back deck or grilling our fresh fish on the charcoal grill. All in all, Serenity Cove is perfect spot to enjoy the beauty and wonders of Eleuthera right in your own clear water back yard.

Thank you so much for taking time to write a review of your visit to Serenity Cove. Through your own rental in Colorado, and as a Premier partner with VRBO, you know what folks look for in a property. Rock and I are so glad that you enjoyed your visit. And, we are pleased the house met your needs. You were most helpful to me when you would call with questions prior to your visit because it helped me realize small things that could be answered in the Welcome letter. Thank you for choosing Eleuthera and Serenity Cove for your island visit. We hope you will visit again.
Everything was amazing. We were very satisfied. Thank you.

Thank you. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Serenity Cove at Ten Bay Beach. Please visit us again!
Serenity Cove was everything that is was promised to be - a beautiful location, one of the best VRBO rentals we have ever had. It was clean, updated, bed was comfortable and as advertised a killer view of the water and Ten Cove Beach from the very spacious deck. Most days we seem to have the beach all to ourselves, which was just a short walk away. The only thing was had an issue with was the no see image which were quite a nuisance, especially at dusk and after sundown. But the skin so soft did the trick just as advertised.
The other thing we loved was that all of Eleuthera’s other beaches, caves, and wonderful restaurants (Tippy’s and La Boughanvillea being the two best places) and Governor’s Harbour were just a short drive away. Overall one of the best vacations we have had in recent years!!!

Dear Kevin and Judy,
Thank you for choosing Serenity Cove for your two-week anniversary celebration. You made our housekeeper, Sue Knowles, extremely happy when you told her, when she came to clean at the end of your first week, that the house was extremely clean and well organized. And thank you for commenting on our recent upgrades of new sliding doors and windows throughout the house and new appliances. We take on a new project in the house each year to keep the house updated.
Those no-see-ums are real buggers, as you mentioned, in the early mornings and evenings. We have tried multiple products but find the Skin So Soft works quite well.
We hope that you will return to enjoy the beauty that Eleuthera offers.
Thank you so much for taking time to write a review.
