It was our 6th time in 29 years staying at Cartwrights Ocean Front Cottages and its still our first choice for vacationing. From the bend-over-backwards service of Samuel and Iris Cartwright to the warm, friendly and welcoming people in the town of Tarpum Bay, the experience is 100% positive. We have been in Tarpum Bay as honeymooners, second honeymoon, with... More

I found these cottages after an extended search on the web and I am so happy I did! From the beginning, Samuel Cartwright has been extremely helpful and professional with all the requests I fired at him! He is a true hospitality person (I am in the hotel world myself!) and handled our reservations and emails like a true gentleman!... More

My crew and I went there to get some down time. This place is in the waterfront in a nice little town of tarpum bay. The owners are SO nice and they come and check on you to see if everything is OK. It's very clean and we felt totally safe here. Its in the middle of the island and... More

Returning for our 25th wedding anniversary at our original honeymoon destination was a delight! The Cartwrights made us feel welcome with the special touches they did for us in the cottage. Sam's help with rides to/from airport really relieved stresses of arranging a taxi. We have been to Cartwrights Ocean Front cottages five times and have always felt like family... More

First of all. ....this place is not close to a beach. The beach is a good quarter mile away. There are roads on both sides of the cottages and there is lot of car noise and headlight flashing in the rooms. Second Samuel the owner is one of the rude person I have ever come across. He promised us to... More

This review is the only negative review that the Cartwrights Ocean Front Cottages Resort has posted on this site, spanning a time frame of 6 years, which is strange. The guests from New York arrived in Eleuthera on December 19th, 35 miles from the intended airport of arrival, in Governors Harbour, instead of the next door Rock Sound Airport, as... More

First off, this isn't Nassau or Freeport. Tarpum Bay is a small village on the Carribean with the friendliest people and most relaxed atmosphere you can ask for. Iris Cartwright and her son, Doug, take meticulous care of their cottages located near the edge of town. You can relax on the front porch and their comfortable cottages and feel the... More

The great hospitality that was shown by Mrs. C and her "right hand man" Doug was great. Our week at the cottages will always be remembered by the great view of the Caribbean, along with the fresh fruit & home made bread welcome. The cottages are located right on the ocean, where you can walk right down to the water... More

After driving from one end of the island to the other, I found Cartwright's Cottages to be the best location for my recent trip to Eleuthera. The warm bread and fresh fruit were a great welcoming for us and the tips on where to go on the island came in handy.Ten By beach is awesome. The snorkeling in front of... More
