​​​​About Us

​​Culmer Cottage is located in the quaint and picturesque fishing village of Tarpum Bay. The cottage is just steps from the beach on a small hill offering spectacular views of the aquamarine Caribbean Sea. The Cottage is centrally located. It is only a short stroll to grocery stores, restaurants, the fish dock where fresh catch arrives daily, the post office, clinic and library. Also close by is the park where all kinds of community events take place: junkanoo, fish fries, arts and crafts shows, athletic contests and musical events. The village of Tarpum Bay is just six miles from the Rock Sound Airport, and the Culmer Cottage is a convenient base from which to drive the entire island--north to the Glass Window Bridge and Harbor Island, and south to Lighthouse Point. Tarpum Bay is noted for its bone fishing. In fact, the entire island attracts fishers from all over the world wishing to explore the shallows of Eleuthera. Deep sea fishing is also popular and produces snapper, mahi mahi and grouper, as well as large game fish.  Eleuthera is for people who want to relax. It is a quiet place to reflect as you stroll its spectacular beaches and enjoy water activities of all kinds. Often the only footsteps you see are the ones you make. It is the home to wonderfully friendly and helpful Bahamians. Although Eleuthera is not for everyone, it is for those who appreciate beauty and seek solace from the sea.
