Spanish Wells house description

Spanish wells is a small island 50 east of Nassau. Spanish Wells can be reached by ferry from Nassau or commercial airlines from the US and Nassau. Spanish Wells has a gorgeous 2 mile long sugary pink sand beach. The water is clear and calm and the sand extends out for over 100 yards, perfect for small children. The 20 mile long Devil's Backbone reef 1/4 mile offshore offers fantastic fishing and snorkeling. Skiffs and golf carts are available for rent in the village and guides available for fishing, snorkeling or diving.

The friendly village people are very proud of their neat and colorful homes, flower filled yards and clean, crime free community. The village provides good grocery stores, pharmacy, bank with ATM, medical care and shopping.

Our beach front home has a wraparound porch on 3 sides and balconies off of both upstairs bedrooms. French doors on 3 sides of the house provide excellent cross ventilation and ocean breezes.

            We were lucky enough to choose this lovely home as the spot for a long overdue vacation. It is right on the beach, nestled behind and around a grove of palm trees. The house is spotless, and very well maintained. As previously mentioned, the kitchen was stocked! We enjoyed taking the kayaks out, and exploring the little islands. The coral heads around those islands are part of a reef extending further out to sea, and spanning beyond Russell Island and Eleuthera. We snorkled from reef to reef - wonderful!! Our morning ritual was to ride the bikes to Kathy's bakery for Johnny Cakes, which were hot out of the oven and delicious, and a sampling of most everything else Kathy baked. We frequented Buddha's (Spanish Wells) for beer, spirits and fresh conch salad, and the fish guy (after 3pm) for his catch of the day. I didn't think it was possible to have a relaxing, laid back vacation with four teenage/early 20 year olds...until we visited Spanish Wells! Johnny (caretaker) and his family were absolutely wonderful! It was a fantastic visit! One hint: Make sure you get a flight to Eleuthera. We made the mistake of flying into Nassau, had an overnight layover, and incurred the cost of the taxi (>$40 each way), hotel, and flight from Nassau to Eleuthera...wasted time and money....fly right to N. Eleuthera!

            I just wanted to say Thank You for the memories we created on Spanish Wells! We had a very peaceful and relaxing time in your beautiful home. The home was very spacious even for all of us adults and little ones. (6 adults and 5 children) The Island was away from all the hussle and bussle that we generally find on Nassau. This vacation is fully and completely about relaxing. The beach is unbelievable!! The people were very helpful and nice! The golf cart rental was excellent and fun for the entire family. If you wanted to go out to enjoy dinner, then a water taxi ride to Harbour Island would do the trick! The home was completely furnished from the kitchen to the bathrooms. Everything you need was literally in the house. The kayaks were splendid for a short trip to the small outlying islands. The kids loved going there and exploring the small island and snorkeling around them. You will be suprised on what fish you will see on the surf side of those little islands :) The beach sand is so soft and fine that you literally sink right in. No worrying about currents or strong waves cause the water is shallow for a couple hundred yards. You can literally walk out 1/4 mile before the water even gets up past your knees!! I would definitely recommend this home for peace and relaxation with children!! You will not be disappointed..!! Left with memories & A Happy Family :)

            Our group of 11 just spent seven wonderful days at this wonderful beachfront home, its beachfront location was breathtaking, each morning we strolled down to the beach and enjoyed our coffee...the house is spacious, clean and very accomading to a larger group, the pictures do not do it justice.The kayaks and beach chairs were always put to good use. The house had everything we needed and more... We certainly heard mixed reviews of the Island itself, we found it to be a hidden gem... the people were friendly and accomadating, we met a local couple who took us snorkeling and brought us crawfish so kind and unexpected! we took the kids fishing with Ryan and had the times of our lives.The boys caught plenty of fish and we then had a great supper! The Island is small and quiet and does not have the "busy tourist" life of nassau but that is exactly what we loved about it..we will return again... we travelled with 5 teenagers who all agreed we should have skipped nassau and spent two weeks on Spanish wells.. Thanks Joe and Bev for sharing your home and little piece of paradise....

            This was our 7th year to vacation on Spanish Wells and our first time to stay at the Beach House. We were really were surprised by how nice the house is- the pictures do not do it justice. It was clean and spacious, very comfortable beds and had a more homey feel than some of the rentals we have had in the past on this island. Wonderful walk in showers! The kayaks were a real bonus and can be easily used in the bay in front of the house or for the exploration of Pierre's rock. The house has a nice porch that looks out on the shallow bay which is also great for very safe swimming for kids. You can also view the sunset from the beach in front of the house and they are usually spectacular ! We found that the kitchen is already plentifully supplied with spices and some food items and we just added some of our own- this was a real plus when you only need a little of something- ( we've usually found completely empty cupboards when we arrive at other rentals). We scuba dived on the reef and the wreak, we spear fished and had many delicious dinners from our catch. If you go to the church on the island the locals will get to know you more and kind of look for you- we were brought piles of mangos ! Be sure to visit Kathy's bakery for fresh baked bread in the mornings- the best.
