About Ken and Adele Holtermann

Retired from Transportation Bussiness in New Jersey who came to Eleuthera 15 years ago .

The rest is history..loved the people and the peace of he island not to mention the beaches.

Decided to have villa built after much thought and planning in 2005 and then ken decided he needed something to keep him busy so he hired some local island men and constructed what is now the Pink Sand Cottage

I always wanted to be right on the water..knew the chances I was taking and said 'I'm doing this as you only go around once in life'

Many years of trucking the roads of the USA. I owned and operated a small trucking and transportation company

Adele worked many jobs but the biggest job was being the mom to our 3 sons

We are now blessed with two wonderful grandchildren Come visit Eleuthera and stay at our cottage

It is well maintained as we are on island. 5 to 6 months a year

Please see our guests feedback...

You are welcome to contact any and all

Ideal place for a couple that loves the ocean and beach.

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable, relaxing place. The house has all the conveniences , there were no other people on the beach during our stay, and the ocean warm and fun to either bask in or spear fish....large trigger fish 150 yards from shore. Really a great place to stay if looking for peace and quiet, ocean sounds not withstanding of course. I recommend it!

Beauty, seclusion and awesome snorkeling!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at the Pink Sand Cottage - the setting is gorgeous and very private, and after exploring other snorkeling spots on the island, we came to the conclusion that we have one of the best reefs right where we were! We snorkeled several times a day, took walks on the beach, sat in the beach chair with a book (or on the porch, or sun deck, or in the hammock under the palm trees) - ultimate vacation experience. A 5-star resort would not have provided such level of bliss!

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Everything we were looking for! Truly relaxing! Beautiful pink sand beach, fabulous view, loved the sun deck and the house was stocked with eveything we needed. Snorkeled right by the house! Loved the privacy yet it was convenient to local restaurants & a place to buy groceries. The night sky was beautiful too - we've never seen so many stars!

Very private and relaxing - wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage! We stayed 10 days and never saw a soul on the beach! The cottage was just right for the two of us. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck facing the ocean. We didn't cook any, just had a sandwich for the days we didn't go exploring, and we ate out every night. There are plenty of dishes though and a stove, microwave & grill. Great island - we had so much fun! We rented a car for our stay, highly recommend. Wifi was a little spotty and we didn't really understand using it through a phone, although we figured it out. If we ever decide to re-visit Eleuthera (we visit different islands and countries every year) we would definitely stay here again! We didn't have any problems so never had to contact the local lady. Thanks Ken!

quaint and cozy in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a little tricky to find but appreciated the seclusion once we arrived. The cottage is well kept and well equipped. It has two great sitting and lounging decks that lead out to the beach. The beach is very private and beautiful. It has a nice pink sand beach with a rocky entry that leads to lots of reef and structure directly in front of the cottage. We saw only four people the entire week we were there. It is in a very central location, therefor making it easy for exploring both the north and south ends of the island. Having explored the whole island, Pink Sand Cottage is definitely in our favorite area and we cannot wait to plan another stay!

Tip - Download google maps for offline use on your cell phone before you go. It will definitely help in getting around and exploring.

Car: recommended

The Pink Sand Cottage is located on the Banks Road ( Atlantic Side of the island) in North Palmetto Point ( Centrally Located)

The Pink Sand Cottage is close to Grocery stores in North Palmetto point just 2 miles to town and the better restaurants in central Eleuthera are all in a 5 mile radius of the cottage .

The Island Farm is only 2 miles from the Cottage where you can buy fresh local produce, fresh herbs & salad dressings ,etc and in the reg season Nov through May they also have fresh made breads, rolls and breakfast buns ( um-um good) on Tuesdays and Fridays.

A new point of Interest is the new 'Leon Levy Botanical Garden' that opened in 2010 within 5 miles of the cottage

A new 2015 added restaurant is 1648 Located in Gov Harbour

We highly recommend this new location as well as The Buccaneer also in Gov Harbor and the new coffee shop The Perk in GH
