Overview & Photos

Gallery

Cocodimama is situated at the center of picture-perfect Alabaster Bay’s spectacular beach, recently featured on the cover of Conde Nast Travler. Alabaster Beach stretches for a mile along the crystal clear azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. The water on this beach is famously calm, typically as calm as a lake. The island is so narrow at this point that guests can stroll to the Atlantic Ocean to enjoy the splendor of miles of uninterrupted pink sand beach as they watch the Atlantic’s blue-green waters roll ashore over nearby reefs. The combination of the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, rolling green hills, and two extraordinary beaches presents our resort guests with a one of kind experience.

Cocodimama is rented out to just one group at a time. You will have the entire resort to yourself. Pricing is on a sliding scale based on the number of rooms required. This makes the property affordable to smaller groups who do not require as many rooms. The base rate pays for 8 rooms. Additional rooms are $150 per night per room. For groups who need more than 12 rooms, the two-bedroom, two-bath manager's suite is available for $400 per night, bringing the total number of rooms to 14.

The resort’s colonial Main House (the white and blue building in the photos) is the perfect gathering spot for large groups. This very large and comfortable beachfront interior features a spacious lounge area with sofas, a very large dining room, commercial kitchen, full bar and bar area with flat screen TV, and men’s and women’s rest rooms. Outside the dining room, the spacious beachfront deck is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a meal or an evening cocktail and our legendary sunsets. The yellow, green, and red buildings in the photos each contain 4 hotel rooms. Each room has a full en-suite bathroom. All of our spacious rooms are direct beachfront, steps from the sand, and feature unobstructed beach, ocean, and sunset views.

Cocodimama has 3 double rooms (each with two queen beds) and 3 king/single rooms which contain both a king bed and a single bed, and 6 king rooms, each with a king bed. The manager's suite has one king bed suite and one queen bed suite.

Amenities include super-fast Starlink WIFI, Starlink satellite TV, daily housekeeping, charcoal grill, back-up generator (for the Main House only), and air conditioning in all rooms except for the commercial kitchen.

Cocodimama is located just six miles (less than a 10-minute drive) from Governors Harbour, the main town on the island. Governors Harbour has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster every afternoon from fisherman at the town dock, or visit the recently restored Haynes Library, which dates from 1897, for the weekly coffee hour for foreign residents and tourists. . Governors Harbour has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. Friday night Fish Fry in Governors Harbour, a street/beach party that brings together all the tourists and locals with food, drink, and dancing in the street, is not to be missed.

Cocodimama is just two miles from the boutique luxury resort Sky Beach Club, which has an excellent beachfront restaurant and infinity pool, with swim up cocktail bar and poolside service all day long. Other restaurants in the area include Tippy’s (international and fusion) and The Rainbow Inn (famous for its steaks). The above all have live music one or more nights a week, so there is live entertainment somewhere nearby almost every night. The Governors Harbour area also has numerous little takeouts and restaurants offering local cuisine, including Da Perk (coffee and sandwich shop), The Buccaneer (salads, burgers, wraps), Mate and Jenny’s (pizza and Bahamian) and the Sunset Inn (local cuisine).

Eleuthera is famous for its 100 miles of spectacular, deserted beaches, and for being safe and friendly. You can rent power boats, jet skis, kayaks, paddleboards & more. There are many boat excursions available.

Melissa M. from Newton Center, MA United States recommends this vacation rental.

21 of us came to celebrate a 50th birthday and 25th wedding anniversary. We could not have asked for a better location! The pictures speak for themselves. The resort is perfectly set up, the sunsets are amazing, and the shallow gradual beach is breathtaking. We hired a cook (Aqueelah) who was excellent! She made us dinners 5 of the 7 nights. (Highly recommend it, as everyone loved this option and it was not expensive compared to eating off property.) The other two nights we went out to Tippy's, which had great food and live music, and to the Friday Night Fish Fry to dance in the streets. Shout out to Nico who set up our karaoke for too many nights of singing competitions, to Annie who took care of our every need on the property and had so many helpful tips, and to Insley who set up our volleyball net, made sure the beach was immaculate each day, and kept the grounds looking beautiful. Our rooms were the perfect size, had comfortable beds, and were cleaned every day making the whole experience so relaxing. Cocodimama has a hardworking and professional crew! Matt Simon made the booking process easy and answered our endless questions. Our guests are already plotting when they are coming back to Cocodimama and we absolutely plan to return, too! Book it, you won't be disappointed!

Very enjoyable stay, facilities were clean and up to date. The staff was nice and accommodating. We rented the entire resort so we had the place to ourselves, peaceful and would recommend for larger groups.

A guest from United States recommends this vacation rental.

We’ve been coming back to Eleuthera for over 20yrs (evert since getting married here!) and decided for our 20th wedding anniversary to stay at Cocodimama. We had always stayed on the other side of the island but we would do day trips to the beach next to cocodimama. We always thought it would be fun to invite a bunch of friends down to celebrate our 20th there, and it did NOT disappoint! We loved every bit of it. Annie is lovely and attentive to making sure you are all taken care of, but they are elusive enough that it feels more DIY (which we prefer). I’ll always have a special place in my heart after this last stay there.

A guest from Puyallip, WA US recommends this vacation rental.

Cocodimama is a little slice of paradise. The house staff and the property manager Annie are the absolute best! They were so friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and the common space if perfect for large groups.

The only downside is the bugs - our entire party ended up with over 50 bites each that did not go away for over a week. It seemed like a mix of sand fleas and noseeums. Unfortunately the bug spray did not seem to deter them all that much. If you are going to be on the beach/porch in the evening I recommend long sleeves/pants and big spray.

That being said it was all still worth it. The place is magical and we will likely be back some day.

  • Manager Responded on 4/12/2023

    Noseeums can be a problem anywhere on the island. They are not always present, but if they are, they will come out at dusk and in the evening, so they won’t be a problem during the day. The bite of a noseeum is not very bothersome, but don't make the mistake of ignoring them if you are allergic to them. As soon as you feel the first little bite, put on long pants (they go for the legs) or go inside. Otherwise, if you are allergic to their bites, you will wind up 100 itchy bumps on your legs.

Mardy B. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

Our trip to Cocodimama was a family vacation for 18, ages 9-75. This location far exceeded our expectations from the private setting to the spacious, very clean quarters, and the excellent food prepared for us by cook Annie and her crew! Upon arrival we were graciously greeted by manager
Annie who shared the resort information needed to settle into our stay. She was readily available to answer all questions (we had many) always with a smile. Anslee and housekeepers (always sporting smiles)were excellent at keeping up with the many chores of daily maintenance. We especially enjoyed the evening bonfires Anslee built on the beach for us to enjoy. Our grandchildren of all ages explored the sea life, caves, went fishing and snorkeling as well as kayaking. The water was a perfect temperature for all to enjoy swimming. We would highly recommend Cocodimama and their staff to anyone wanting a truly private, unique island experience with the Caribbean just steps from your door and the large waves of the Altantic less than a mile drive across the island...
A beautiful location for a family reunion or any other event! We are grateful for the staff at Cocodimama who helped to make our stay so memorable.

Roger A. from United States recommends this vacation rental.

Our group of 9 came to Coco Di Mama on 8/24/2023. 3 of the group were repeat visitors and 6 were first timers. Annie and her team greeted us, after a delay in our flight, to be sure we all had everything we needed. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We ordered provisions in advance of our arrival and all items were properly chilled for our enjoyment. We did experience problem with one of our rental cars and Annie’s son, Alexy, arrived within in minutes to assist. The available kitchen in the main house was convenient for our group to prepare light meals. The daily housekeeping was greatly appreciated. The entire staff were very friendly and accommodating.
I would HIGHLY recommend this resort for a family our group get away!

Gina A. from Harvard, MA United States recommends this vacation rental.

Wow, what a week! We brought 24 of our close friends and family to stay at Cocodimama. I think this is truly the most beautiful beach on the whole island. Though we kept venturing out to other beaches and caves and cliffs, we all wanted to get back to the house as quickly as possible. The cottages are not fancy, though right on the sand! We rented a half dozen kayaks and the house also had a lot of rafts and coolers. The most fun was to just wade out into the shallow waters with our drinks and have a party all day long! Annie and her staff were gracious, helpful and always providing little surprises for us! We arranged to have Annie (different than the property manager) cook for us for 4 of the nights, and she made several traditional Bahamian dishes that everyone loved. It got pretty hot during the afternoons, so having good A/C was fabulous. Can't wait to come back!

Cant say enough great things about this property, we were a large group of 34 guest and we have the trip of our life, this place has the nest beach in the entire island, the main building has everything to accommodate and to cook for large parties, rooms were spot less, the crew and house keeping directed by annie the manager definitely deserves the highest score for cleanness.
also Matt was a super host , he helps us all the way trough
this will be our future spot every time we are coming back to ELEUTHERA
