Property description

Relax in a reclining beach chair under palm trees with your favourite drink in hand and loved one by your side viewing your private beach only a few steps away.

Spend evenings enjoying a meal with candle light and watch the cruise ships as they pass on the horizon. Walk the most beautiful 2.5 mile white sand beach holding hands with your honey, often by yourselves.

Take an evening walk on this fantastic beach, under a starry, moonlit sky holding hands with your loved one hearing only the waves lapping the sandy shore and your own voices.

The beach is rock free and so is the water. Kids can safely dig & build sand castles until their hearts are content.

The water is child friendly being shallow with a white sand bottom free of sea grass.

Enjoy a lunch on your private patio with 6 seater patio table and umbrella; grill your own on the gas grill on the patio or 'take-in' as you please.

Further Details: All 3 bedrooms each have a Queen Size bed.Downstairs bedroom has a connecting bathroom.with a bath/shower combination. Upstairs js a full size bthroom with a very large shower stall..

The cottage is on a quiet street away from the main road.

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.

The Unique Benefits of this Cottage:
Sitting under the palm trees with morning coffee in hand, smelling the fresh sea air overlooking the beach.

Enjoying a light lunch while feeling the seabreezes brush my face.

Walking on the beach holding hands with my honey collecting sea shells.

Having a cold midday drink while under the umbrella on the beach watching the boaters pass by.

Reading a good book or buried in my Suduko puzzle oblivious to the troubles of the world. Relaxing in a reclining beach chair under the trees and having a afternoon nap.
