Although I was born in Nassau, Bahamas, my Father was born in Spanish Wells.
As a child I enjoyed virtually every Summer Holiday staying here for weeks at a time with my Grand Mother. Some of my most treasured childhood memories are of these times in Spanish Wells with family and friends.
I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to purchase this beautiful cottage & property that all residents agree is located on the absolute 'best' part of the 'Northside beach'
Once you have stayed here you will agree!
About The Owner: I am 61 years old and a business owner in partnership with my brother. I enjoy most of all spending time at the cottage relaxing on the beach with a good book. I work very hard and find these little breaks most gratifying.
Why the Owner Chose Spanish Wells: Having spent so much of my childhood years vacationing here and this being one of the most beautiful locations in The Bahamas, I jumped at the opportunity.
