Spanish Wells house description

Main Beach Cottage Description

This charming beach front cottage was built in 2005 with family activities in mind. The layout provides ample space for large family gatherings and, conversely, offers multiple areas for kids to play and adults to relax. A large portion of the first floor faces the beach and has an open design where the kitchen, dining area and family room flow together creating a spacious great room. The first floor also has a bedroom, full bathroom with shower and separate laundry area for added convenience. An extra wide staircase, leading to the upstairs, has hand rails positioned at two different heights for the safety of adults and small children.

A fun atmosphere abounds on the second floor. Kids love playing on the swing, the wall to wall suspended netting, and the rope ladder that leads to a 200 square foot loft that can be built into a formidable fortress. The second floor also has a master bedroom and a bunkroom, each opening to a balcony deck with incredible views of the ocean. Both bedrooms have a private bathroom with double pedestal sinks and a deep soaker tub. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the bunk room has two sets of built-in bunk beds. Also on the second floor are two semi private sleeping areas. One area is situated with two twin beds and the other area has a twin bed with a DVD player.

Much of the furniture in the cottage was hand crafted out of salvaged material from local ship wrecks and the artwork throughout was done by Michael Cashmore Hingley, whose artwork is featured on numerous buildings throughout Spanish Wells. The cottage is appointed with all of the needed amenities; broad band wireless internet access, Vonage phone service for free calls to/from the US, cable TV, DVD player, flat screen TVs, base station marine radio, washer, dryer, microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven, refrigerator with ice dispenser/water and six- zone climate control for ultimate comfort throughout the entire cottage.

Comfort and convenience continues in the outdoor living areas. The covered, ocean side deck, running the entire width of the cottage, has Adirondack chairs and indirect lighting that is perfect for nighttime viewing of passing cruise ships and star gazing. Steps from the ocean side deck and a wooden walkway lead to an outdoor shower on the side of the cottage. This is the first stop for most guests returning from the beach where they can enjoy a clean rinse with welcoming hot and cold water. The covered porch on the inland side also runs the entire width of the cottage. A barbeque grill is located on this porch, which is convenient to the kitchen and assures untimely afternoon showers won’t interrupt dinner preparation. The adjacent lower level deck, with chaise lounges, is a nice, protected alternative if the wind is blowing hard out of the North or East.

The property spills onto a spectacular sandy beach with crystal clear, shallow, safe, warm water. The beach is protected by beautiful barrier coral reefs which tame large waves and prevent dangerous rip tides. The warm, calm water provides endless hours of entertainment for the whole family, to include snorkeling and fishing. There is a fish cleaning table with running water near the water’s edge, making it convenient to quickly clean any fish that are caught. If just hanging out and relaxing is your thing you will enjoy the hammock that is shaded by palm trees and cooled by ocean breezes.

Situated on 12th Street, the cottage location on Spanish Wells is ideal and is within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, churches and grocery stores.

Optional Guest Cottage

A recently added guest cottage on the property is now available for rent in conjunction with main beach house rental. This nicely appointed two-level guest cottage offers an additional bedroom with king-size bed plus two bathrooms (one with an indoor shower and the other with a private outdoor shower). The guest cottage also includes a kitchen, dining room and living room and would be perfect for grandparents, aunts, uncles or friends of your family. The cottage is for adults only with a max of two occupants. The nightly charge for the guest cottage is $150 per night and it is only available to those renting the main beach house or the property owners.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Family man with a beautiful wife and 3 wonderful children, avid outdoors man, loving anything to do with water, 30+ years in the technology field in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US. Picture above was taken in Spanish Wells in 2010. I was holding dinner for 5.

                      Why the Owner Chose Spanish Wells:
                      A long time friend invited me and my family to stay at his beach house in Spanish Wells. We went in April, 2010 and had a wonderful time snorkeling, fishing, beachcombing, building sand castles, riding bikes, watching the sunset, having ice cream, grilling what we caught spear fishing and relaxing. It was incredible and my kids still tell others that it was the BEST vacation ever. I've challenged them on their declaration but they say the trip to Spanish Wells was better than the Atlantis, Disney World, Caribbean Cruises and all of our beach trips on the east coast. I know it's hard to believe but it's the truth! As a family we were not in a rush to get to nor distracted by any of the commercial offerings that are typical of vacation destinations. Spanish Wells is not commercialized at all; rather it is beautiful, safe, and the islanders are very accommodating. I too enjoyed this vacation immensely so I spent the last day of our vacation looking at real estate. When my friend learned that I was interested in buying a place on the island he offered me part ownership of the beach house. We have closed the deal and are now offering a limited number of rentals to help offset expenses.
