About Leisa Hall

I am a Bahamian and avid traveller with 22 years accounting and banking experience. I have visited 22 countries, lived in 4 countries (3 European cities) but still love coming home to the islands. Eleuthera is my 'Freedom'.

Eleuthera Euphoria !!!

Leisa Hall purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Leisa Hall chose Rainbow Bay

An unobstructed 180 degree view of the Caribbean Sea, glimpses of the ocean blues from every window and the magic of the stars at night chose this property for me.

What makes this cottage unique

Sit and relax, stream a movie or a TV show over the internet from the G box or watch a movie selected from our DVD library on the DVD player. A flat screen TV is located in the living room. There are books you may borrow to read during your stay at Winter. There is even a mini guitar for those impromptu jam sessions at one o'clock in the morning.

You can see both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea from this property.

Beautiful cottage with very responsive and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Winter Solstice in March 2018. The Atlantic was raging at the time of our arrival and Glass Window Bridge was closed for almost a week due to damage of the bridge and road. Leisa was very helpful in communicating with us in all aspects, including info to get to the cottage. Since the bridge was closed (we landed in North Eleuthera) and we had to get to the cottage located south of the bridge, we had to take a make-shift ferry service (fishing boat) to Gregory Town where I met Leisa's neighbor Laura with a rental car. Leisa stayed in contact with us throughout the whole adventure and provided up to date information. Thank you Leisa! :-)

As other reviewers have already mentioned, the cottage has everything you need. It is very clean and has great views. It is centrally located on a beautiful island, less than 5 minutes to the beach or nearest restaurant, about 10 minutes to the nearest grocery store.

If you need to wash clothes, washer and dryer are provided, but due to the poor quality of the water on parts of the island (as well as other islands), our white clothes came out with brown spots. The spots came out after we washed them again at home with bleach, but that's just something to be aware of. This should in no way reflect badly on the Winter Solstice. It's just part of island life.

We had a great, relaxing time at the Winter Solstice and would definitely stay there again! :-)

Blissful retreat in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My impromptu retreat to idyllic Winter Solstice was incredible. Pure serene balminess. Panoramic views on all sides. Cottage build with impeccable, exquisite taste and with all the trappings and more. Conveniently located re arrival/departure, stores, entertainment, relaxation, adventure, proximity to the friendliest locals and visitors etc. You get every bit of what you pay for. Highly recommended without hesitation! PS The most affable, helpful owner too.

Best Cottage Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our say in Elethura, Bahamas as the best ever. We expected much less but got much more. The view was breath taking ocean on both sides and the breeze was a much welcome. We enjoyed the BBQ pit that was an addition to the rental property. The Cottage itself was nicely built and the inside décor was most beautiful hand picked my the owner we were told. The owner was very gracious and accommodating. The rooms are all spacious and everything is included. The only thing we had to do is carry our clothing and purchase groceries. Everything else was included. It is centralized to the area that have a hotel, restaurants, shops and beaches. We highly recommend this Cottage.

We look forward to staying there again next year April.
