New Ocean front house with stunning all round views of the turquoise waters of the Bahamas, from front and back balconies.
House is set in mature orchards with ocean to the back and a secluded sandy beach to the front ( 50yds away ) The ocean side is deep enough to swim/snorkel and keep a boat close during your stay.
We have small coral reefs in the front with resident Octopus, Puffer fish and the usual brightly coloured reef fish. Turtles have been seen there as well but not by me yet. Haven't seen any sharks either. But I Certainly have caught enough Snapper for barbeque supper.
House is secluded but not remote, house is just a short golf cart ride ( 10 Minutes ) from all the facilities in Spanish Wells Town, Restaurants, Shops, Supermarkets, Clinic, Doctors, Internet café and a stunning crescent beach with warm turquoise waters and silky white sand. Beach is Great for Adults and children as the water starts very shallow and is protected by an offshore reef.
Spanish Wells is also where the "Bo Hengy II" fast ferry from Nassau arrives at 09:30 every morning and then travels on to Harbour Island 30mins away returning in the afternoon. Government ferries to Eleuthera leave and arrive every few minutes servicing clients to North Eleuthera Airport 25 Minutes away.
The view is stunning and the house is part of it, from sunrise to sunset on the veranda I never tire of staring out to sea, with a drink in one hand and Fresh lobster cooking on the barbeque.

Fantastic spot for family getaway
Fantastic spot for family getaway
Had a fabulous 9 days here. Snorkeling off the front of the house everyday. Lots of small fish to seen. House was fabulous; very clean and very well stocked. Spanish Wells is a "dry" island so you need to stock up with liquor before you land; not really a problem as the liquor store is only a 10 minute boat ride away ($8 round trip) I would plan on cooking your meals the restaurants we went to where very basic (sandwiches and fries etc) We had the pleasure of spending a day on the water with James - we snorkeled and ate conch out of the shell. Fantastic fun. Truly a great spot to relax and chill. Thanks Justin we hope to come back again dealing with you was a pleasure. The pix on VRBO are a bit dated as there are now homes on either side. Not an issue really but you will not be as isolated as the pix might lead you to believe.

Perfect - the Blue House
Perfect - the Blue House
My wife and I, plus son and daughter-in-law have just spent a delightful week at the Blue House. The house itself is wonderfully light and airey with more than enough room for us. Ceramic tiled floors throughout were a great benefit as far as housekeeping was concerned. A truely comfortable place to stay. All mod cons, nothing lacking! Out on Russell Island there is a far greater sense of room and of seclusion than in the more builtup areas of Spanish Wells itself. Having the sea at the bottom of the garden was amazing and also having a swim a short 100 yards walk the other direction if the wind was up was luxuary indeed! The people of Spanish Wells in their beautifully neat and clean town were a joy. All are friendly, helpful and kind of like the people I remember from my youth - polite, easygoing and just downright nice! James and Shantell who caretake the place were just the perfect "hosts". They helped in all sorts of ways and left us alone (at the end of James' phone!) when we didn't need anything. James knows the sea around there like he was born there (he was!) and had us snorkling out on a beautiful reef, looking for sand-dollars on a pristine beach and shelling with lunch on another deserted island. All this in the boat belonging to Justin the house owner. We ate in, ate out and even once asked Shantell to prepare and deliver a mind boggling lobster dinner for a very reasonable amount. Even had leftovers for another meal! Spanish Wells does not have the "schmutz" of the Nassau type tourist industry. To each his own but we do not need to be "entertained". We didn't even get aroung to reading the books we brought along. Renting a golf buggy (they zoom all over the islands) from Harbourside Rentals and having the perfect place to stay together with James' friendship and guidance made for a memorable stay. Now just to get back there!!

We had a great time at the Blue House. Stayed over xmas '08 and the weather was gorgeous. We swam and snorkelled everyday. Urchins, star fish, sea horses, barracuda, sand dollars, sting rays. Kids had a great time swimming at both beaches and is very safe for the little ones. The house accomodated all 11 (+ an infant)of us very well. The town of Spanish Wells is small and friendly. The most beautiful beach we have seen yet. A very quiet relaxing vacation amid a safe community. Highly recommended for those looking for just that.

The Blue House is a wonderful place to stay while enjoying the wonders of Spanish Wells/Russell Island. The owner and caretaker are incredibly helpful and easy to work with. The house accomodated our extended family with ease. Private beach is amazing for snorkeling or just looking out to sea. I would highly recommend a visit to this house and this island!

We had a lovely time at the Blue House. Two weeks was not enough! The children loved it. We loved the beaches and snorkeling in front of the house and across the street. We were greeted by a family of dolphins several times. The house is very well equipped and handled our crowd of six adults and three children very easily. There is no need to use the ac as the cross breeze is fantastic and nice and cool at night. Justin was a real pleasure to work with and the people of Spanish Wells are lovely.If you want relaxation and being away from everything this is your place!

My husband and I stayed at the Blue House in February and had a wonderful time. It's a lovely setting to read or just watch the cruise ships go by. We took a swim in the back at least twice a day and with the privacy that surrounded us...bathing suits were optional. The house is also beautiful, spacious and functional for just a couple or a whole family. The owner did a great job providing information about the island and the house. Having our own personal care-taker, who lived up the road, wasn't too bad either. James is the best! If crowds, bars and casinos are your thing then don’t stay here but if you love being surrounded by beautiful scenery, visiting a friendly island and want to truly relax then book your vacation at the Blue House on Russell Island. We plan on going back next year!

We visted this lovely home over the Christmas holiday. There were nine total all ages 13-82. We had the best time. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. The house was great and had everything we needed. If we had any problem at all James the house caretaker was there in a flash and helped us out. His wife Shantel prepared several meals for us that were fabulous. she is a great chef. Spanish Wells is so quaint and cute. The people are very friendly and will give you the shirt off their back. Renting from Justin was a pleasure. I am a very busy person and he made it all very easy. I hope to go back again soon

If you are looking for clean, quiet, empty beaches with a lovely warm sea then this is the place to go, also the accommodation was amazing with a large front and rear garden and a jetty at the back so you can fish or dive from. absolutely an amazing wonderful relaxing place to visit and stay.
