Overview & Photos

Nestled among the lush tropical garden and magnificent palm trees of Trident Estate is a secluded 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest cottage! Trident Cottage is just steps away from the famous Poponi Beach, which is ranked one of the best beaches in the Bahamas. It is a one minue walk down the beach to Unique Village’s restaurant and bar and a longer walk to La Bouginavillea's restaurant and bar.

Trident Cottage is fully air conditioned to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The cottage features a fully equipped kitchen, including an oversized refrigerator and freezer.

Amenities include Smart TV with Netflix (but no satellite or cable), reliable Wi-Fi, an automatic on-demand generator, solar with back up solar battery, a safe, a large freshwater cistern, and a tandem sea kayak.

One bedroom at Trident Cottage has a king bed and one has a queen bed. There are 2 bathrooms, one is en-suite with a bedroom and the other bathroom can be entered from the hallway. There is a shared walk-in shower in the middle which connects both bathrooms. There is also an outdoor shower.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the wrap around balcony with ocean views, while watching the sunrise and listening to the sounds of the surf!

There is a private driveway with plenty of parking.

The town of Palmetto Point is just half a mile away, a one-minute drive or a ten-minute walk. Palmetto Point is home to the popular Mate and Jenny’s restaurant, as well as several stores. La Bougainvillea's beachfront restaurant/bar is a 2 minute drive. Tippy’s beachfront restaurant is a 5-minute drive. A ten-minute drive takes you into Governors Harbor, the main town on the island. Governors Harbor has a charming collection of 19th century homes and churches overlooking its historic harbor. Buy fresh fish and lobster most afternoons 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 Harbor has grocery stores, restaurants, liquor stores, two banks with ATMs, a bakery, gift shops, and a medical clinic. Friday Night Fish Fry in Governors Harbor, 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.

Brian P. from Cobourg, ON CA recommends this vacation rental.

Delightful cottage in a beautiful lush landscaped garden steps from the beach. Well equipped with great hosts and property manager. Popovich beach is gorgeous, private with spots for sun or shade and protected spots in the reef provide great swimming. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Brian R. from Anchorage, AK United States recommends this vacation rental.

First, please scroll through the previous reviews for this place and read the one I wrote for it last year (Brian R. January 31, 2023). Please also know that after staying there again this year, for a month, I can tell you this: Our experience was even better!
Upon arriving the first thing I noticed was they cut a tasteful swath through the tropical forest opening up a wonderful view of the ocean. Now you can sit on the deck and look out at the amazing blue/turquoise water and let the sound of crashing waves take you away.

For the cook in your family: The kitchen has all new pots, pans, and enough cooking accessories to make cooking away from home a breeze.

Also, there a two new fat-tire bikes for your use. A ride along the back roads with their stunning beach views is inexplicable.

Not mentioned in my previous review: There is an on-site generator. So, if and when there is a power outage on the island you’ll never know it. The generator immediately starts and provides back-up power to the cottage. Also, the internet connectivity at this property is extremely reliable and lightning fast. (It has to be, as the near-by on-site Owners of this property rely on uninterrupted internet for their own occupations) So if you use the internet while on vacation, or more importantly, need to perform some on-line work while you’re away from home, you’ll very much appreciate this. Please note: Power outages do occur on Eleuthera. If for some reason you’re not going to stay at this cottage make sure the property you will be renting has a generator and a fast reliable internet connection.

Overall, renting Trident Cottage provides us with a calming experience both before we go, and while we’re there. We know that among other things it’s well appointed, safe, secure, very private and quiet. Lastly, the Property Manager, Justin, is quick to respond to any questions or needs you may have.

John M. from Ewing, NJ United States recommends this vacation rental.

Great location, very clean, and a great beach almost to yourself. Only saw a few other people on it the entire stay. Had a few first stay glitches with the electricity, but I was actually shocked, no pun intended, at how quickly they got remedied. We come to Eleuthera frequently, and everything happens here on island time, so I expected it to be a major issue on a weekend, but not so. The owners are only a house away, and were on hand to help! Outdoor shower works too, that's a big plus. Only thing I'd the above description it claims "Walk to restaurant/bar? Don't know about that, maybe there was one I didn't know about, but this is a pretty secluded place, which is great, but you'll be driving a short way to Governor's Harbor for the restaurants.


We’ll be back!

Brian R. from Anchorage, AK United States recommends this vacation rental.

We just left Trident Cottage a week ago and already have reservations to go back next year! The Cottage is exactly as advertised plus quiet, safe and secure. The Owners who live in a separate home on the property are extremely pleasant, and immediate to respond to any concerns or to help you with advice on any local matters. The Cottage is nestled on a lush and well-maintained property, and you are literally steps away from a modest set of stairs that lead you to a pristine pink sand beach. And on this beach, as on most of the 100+ beaches on the island...you’ll be alone. We were there a month and only 4 or 5 people walked by us the entire time! And most days...we didn’t see anybody. You’re only a few miles to nearby beachfront restaurants; groceries; farm fresh produce; and you’re basically centered on the island making exploring in either direction an easy activity. Regarding Eleuthera itself, be advised: If you’re seeking night-life activities; commercialized chain establishments; or want to be catered to at a large resort...this probably isn’t the place for you. If on the other hand you are seeking to relax off the beaten path; in a fairly remote tropical island atmosphere; and experience the heart and soul of the Bahamas: the wonderfully kind Bahamians themselves...then do yourself a favor: come to Eleuthera... and stay at Trident.

Simon C. from Oxted, Surrey United Kingdom recommends this vacation rental.

Great location near Governors Harbour and nearby beaches. Poponi Beach was probably our favourite walkable in 2-3 minutes from the cottage through the main property and down the steps to the beach. We rarely saw anyone else on the beach. The property is as described, very clean and perfectly suited our needs as a family of 4, 2 young children. Mains power was interrupted quite a few times but the property generator kicked in promptly to continue to providing power. We would definitely consider staying again if we visited Eleuthera again.

Laura M. from Greensboro, NC United States recommends this vacation rental.

Eleuthera was a wonderful place for us, we loved this island, the silence, the beaches and the sea:
The accomodation was in a very good location, the house was clean, with a small but very well equipped kitchen.
The rental process was easy and smooth with a great agent and a property
manager twho were extremely helpful at all times! Hope to go back again!!
