Property description

This quality 1100 sq. ft. cottage is a beachfront property located on the beautiful N.E. shores of Spanish Wells. The cottage is centrally air conditioned along with ceiling fans. There are tiled floors throughout. A completely equipped kitchen/dining area, moves into a delightfully furnished living room with a queen sized sofa bed. The sitting room overlooks and exits onto a large patio area.

The patio has a direct walkway to the powder sands of the beach and clear pristine waters of the shallow seas. The laundry room is also an access to the patio area and beachfront. The cottage has cable T.V. and computer internet service connection. There are two bedrooms with a queen sized bed in each and an adjoining private bathroom in each bedroom.

Cockleshell enjoys an excellent location on Spanish Wells. Restaurants, local bakeries, quality grocery stores and various shops are all within comfortable walking distance. Local transportation around Spanish Wells and adjoining Russell Island is usually by golf carts which can be rented close by (info and rates can be provided in the cottage). Bicycles come along with the cottage and provide an excellent and enjoyable way of getting around Spanish Wells. Of course, all water related activities are at hand and readily available.

Spanish Wells is known throughout the family islands of the Bahamas as a peaceful, tranquil island enjoying a stress free environment. We look forward to your visit and assure you of a relaxing and happy time here at Cockleshell Beach Cottage.
