The property was nice and secluded. The owner was very welcoming and showed us around the property. There was a beautiful beach nearby. Would definitely stay again!

Absolutely EVERYTHING about our trip was perfect!! It was a dream holiday, this was a dream house and Jethro and Laura were just amazing.
The house is exactly like it is in the pictures, we loved having coffee on the decking in the morning. The beach is so close and beautiful and there are beach chairs, beach towels, snorkelling equipment and bags available at the house.
I couldn’t recommend this house enough, it’s hidden away and private. We had the best time! The best time!!
Thank you Jethro and Laura for making our dream holiday come true.
We will be back!!!!

Jethro and Laura were quick to respond to all of our questions. Sea Shanty is a charming cottage that is tastefully decorated and well equipped with a modern kitchen. The upper deck has great sunrise and sunset views.

A fabulous bolt hole in a beautiful location
Sea Shanty was the perfect property for our relaxed holiday on Eleuthera. A lot of thought has been put into the details of the property. The furnishing and interior are spot on and the sofa and bed are extremely comfortable! The view from the sun deck is gorgeous and you can catch the sunrise if you’re up early enough plus you can just see the sea from the upper deck. The beach is only a 2 minute walk and is stunning with hardly a soul to be seen. We enjoyed a morning walk most days and the sea is the perfect temperature for swimming. Jethro is so lovely and gave us some brilliant local info for top spots on the island - we visited many of them and weren’t disappointed. Communication was simple and effortless with nothing being too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend Jethro and Sea Shanty - we had an amazing week and loved everything about it.
Some top tips for your holiday on Eleuthera ... food is expensive (alcohol not so much!) so you might want to bring some Basic items with you. We ate in most evenings and the kitchen had all we needed to cook. Island Farm shop, south just off Queens highway is great with some nice homemade dips and fresh produce. Da Perc in Governor’s Harbour does wonderful breakfasts and the best green smoothies!! ...
You will absolutely need a car and Jethro will be able to recommend rental companies to you - if you plan on heading to the beaches - get an SUV for the bumpy off road tracks!! ...
Once again - BOOK this fabulous house for your holiday - you will not be disappointed :)

We spent 4 amazing nights at Sea Shanty. The location is ideal - we visited many beaches throughout the island, and our beach was our favorite. We had the beach to ourselves everyday. The reefs off shore are great for snorkeling and the house has gear for two. The house is perfect for 2 or 4 people, and stargazing on the roof deck is incomparable. Jethro was very responsive and helpful. You'll definitely need a car to get to town (groceries, liquor store, etc.). And the path down to the beach is a bit steep at the end, which can be difficult for some. Amazing stay- if we come back, we will definitely stay at the Sea Shanty!

My amazing birthday vacation
This property is stunning. The interior is beautiful, island sophistication. Jethro was SO helpful, quick with replies and advised us on lovely lunch places and things to do. The beach is not even a five minute walk away and is private and amazing! The cottage has a great outdoor area upstairs and down. We have already decided we will be returning the same time next year. Me and my partner had the best time. Thank you so much Jethro! :)

Beautiful, quaint and close to everything.
Perfect spot for my husband and I. We stayed 3 nights. Very clean, close to everything, great views from the rooftop deck. Communication with Jethro was great and we rented a car from the caretakers, Laura and Andy.

Great Location & Quaint Home
This is a perfect space for a single or a couple. Across the street, there is a short 3-4 minute walking trail that will take you to a stunning, private beach. I stayed for one week and during the day saw no one on the beach. I saw one person at sunrise. And a handful at sunset. The water is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. You can also drive 3 minutes down the road and park off the road and snorkel at French Leave Beach. You'll get to see fish and some sharks (they don't bother you and they are small). You can walk the beach and have lunch (or dinner) at Tippy's Restaurant. The house is located in a quiet, safe area and a quick drive to town. The Buccaneer is my favorite breakfast spot. They have live music on Wednesday nights. Da Perk is great for a smoothie, cup of coffee, or breakfast (their avocado toast is the best!). Definitely check out Bacchus for pricey but delicious lunch items (to eat on their patio or for take-out). I rented a car from Laura, who caretakes for the home. She's fantastic. I recommend renting from her. The house has everything you need in terms of utensils/kitchen. I recommend getting gallon water jugs from the gas station which also has a shopping/convenience store. I recommend getting groceries here as opposed to Burrows. There are two decks at the house and you can't go wrong by sitting or laying on either. It is VERY buggy on the island, your family "off" will NOT work. Make sure you bring at least 30% deet. Sorry essential oil and nature friends, but that stuff won't work here. I used an entire can of backwoods off and half of Skin so Soft by Avon and my legs and arms still look horrifying. House occasionally has some lizards and definitely a decent amount of spiders, but nothing comes close to you and that's the nature of the game there. Jethro was absolutely fantastic with recommendations and quick communication. They don't come better than him. Leon Levy Nature Reserve is very close and if you love nature and trail walks please do yourself a favor and spend an hour or two here. It wound up raining and thundering when I went and then cleared up and I just LOVE that place. 1648 has the best dinner, in my personal opinion. Drinks are pricey but the local employees were by far the kindest and the most fun. Make sure you get their lobster pasta dish. You don't want to miss their sunset view! I had a lovely stay at the home and you will too. Don't pass this one up. I will definitely be back again!

This is our 4th time in Eleuthera but our first time staying at Sea Shanty. Jethro was a great host, greeting us when we arrived and showing us around. The home is fully equipped and has 2 beautiful decks, although my favorite was the deck off the bedroom. We left the door open at night for the wonderful breeze and the sound of the ocean!
The home also has everything necessary for a beach day and we used the bikes to explore the Levy Preserve! Easy walk to Tippy's which we visited on several occasions. The beach is a short walk from the house with a great area for snorkeling. Loved our time at Sea Shanty! Well done Jethro!

Loved the cottage!!!!!
I am so glad that I got the opportunity to stay at the Sea Shanty. It was a birthday gift from my mom and I am so grateful for that. The cottage was wonderful. It met all my needs while I was there. I will DEFINATELY STAY THERE on my next visit to Eleuthera. Thank you Mr. Armstrong for a wonderful vacation at your cottage!!!!
