Spanish Wells villa description
This charming beachfront villa is located in the quiet western area of the beautiful 2.5 mile long delicate pink sand beach of Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, Bahamas. Spanish Wells is considered by most to be the most clean, pristine, and safe community in The Bahamas with friendly and helpful local residents. This area of Spanish Wells Bahamas offers some of the best bonefishing in the Bahamas. Conch Shell Beach Villa is located on more than 1.5 acre of beach front property so that it offers much more privacy than most of the beachfront rental properties in the area (which are typically situated on 1/8 acre or less). This lovely vacation villa rental offers a private gated entrance and a large private garden with many coconut palm trees, an abundance of flowering trees, sea grape trees, coco plum trees, and large native Bahamian shade trees. This villa is located in an area of large beachfront estate lots (most 2+ acres) where there is no public beach access; so, this is the most quiet and secluded stretch of beach in Spanish Wells. This beachfront garden is a great place to relax in the hammock and peacefully read a good book.
The interior of the home is decorated in the very colorful island tradition with much of the furniture of wicker and rattan. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large great room, and a full kitchen. The villa offers every convenience including cable TV, DVD/CD player, washer & dryer, microwave, paddle fans in every room, and air-conditioning throughout. ( Free unlimited high speed internet is available; please request prior to your visit.) There is a very nice sea view from the great room and the kitchen.
There is an expansive covered front porch that offers up a great view. This is a great place to relax and read a book on the chaise lounges in the shade, or to dine outside while taking in the view. Adjacent to the porch is an outside shower so that one can rinse off salt and sand before entering the house.
Extras: Bicycles and and (2) two-person ocean kayaks are offered with the vacation rental with which one can use to explore the area. A 16' new fiberglass boat with motor is also offered for those that love fishing, snorkeling, and sightseeing. With the boat one can explore nearby islets, islands, cays, deserted beaches, and some of the Spanish Wells Bahamas area's most beautiful reefs. The boat is moored right in front of the villa making it very convenient to use at anytime. Otherwise, motor boats, kayaks, and bicycles are expensive to rent separately.
Spanish Wells: The Spanish Wells area is well-known for its great fishing and snorkeling. The Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef is just offshore. Terrific bonefishing can be had right in front of Conch Shell Beach Villa.
In Spanish Wells Bahamas, you will never run out of things to do until you want to. The native Bahamian quilt makers, the local straw vendors & the museum are always fun to visit. A visit with local fishermen as they bring in their fresh catch each day can be both informative and delicious. A trip on the Fast Ferry to nearby Harbour Island is a delight, and you won't want to miss the local restaurants, the new gym, the bakeries, and the best fishing and snorkeling that the Bahamas has to offer.
There are fishing charters, snorkeling trips, cave tours, and golf cart rentals available. It is best to reserve these when you reserve the villa.

Perfect Anniversary Vacation
Perfect Anniversary Vacation
We just returned from a week's stay at Conch Shell Beach Villa on Spanish Wells and we are still basking in the afterglow of an awesome vacation! The villa was cozy, clean, and exactly as pictured here. We were pleasantly surprised to find a jug of water and a loaf of fresh baked bread upon our arrival. The bread was incredible and made the most delicious French toast. We cooked all of our meals at the villa and the kitchen had all the pots, pans, and utensils we needed. The washer and dryer were a big plus! We never turned on the AC. We left the windows open with the fans running and always felt comfortable. The view from the verandah was gorgeous! To enjoy the verandah to its fullest we recommend you bring or buy bug spray. This is a tropical island after all and, like everywhere else, the mosquitos like to come out after the brief afternoon showers. Not a problem if you’re prepared. The boat was great for fishing and exploring. We took it out each evening to bob around in the water while watching the beautiful sunsets and moonrises. We even got to see a GPS satellite launch from Cape Canaveral from our beach on a clear night with a full moon. Amazing! The optional golf cart rental is an absolute must. The beach was fantastic with white sand, loungers, and kayaks. We would be on the beach for hours – either in front of the villa or walking – and would not see a single soul. Incredible! Lorraine was very helpful in arranging the rental and round-trip transportation. She even picked us up from the ferrry herself the day we arrived. Brent was extremely friendly and made sure we had everything we needed to make our vacation memorable. The large grocery store, Food Fair, has everything you need for home cooked meals and anything else you might want/need. We were surprised at the large selection of items you wouldn’t expect to find on such a small island. Budda’s on 12 Street sells beer and alcohol. And if the fish aren’t jumping on your hook there are a couple of places you can buy it – Ronald’s or Bernard’s for example. Lorraine's son even stopped by one day to see if wanted any fresh Mahi Mahi. Spanish Wells is not for everyone. If you need bars, nightlife, shopping, or other entertainment then look elsewhere. But you want deserted beaches, lazy days exploring by either boat, beach, or golf cart - and can make your own fun - then we highly recommend Conch Shell Beach Villa. A perfect vacation for us!

Owner response: We are so happy that you had such an awesome vacation! The Spanish Wells fresh baked bread is definitely delicious! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is fortunate that the area has nice breezes almost every day, and usually paddle fans are enough to keep guests comfortable. Unfortunately, mosquitoes found you, but it is truly is rare that we have much of a problem with any type of bugs. We did notice a few mosquitoes several days after our first big rain of the year with a strong south wind. We are so happy to hear that you had such great experiences in the boat, and the golf cart is perfect for exploring Spanish Wells and Russell Island by land. Yes, our local grocery store, Food Fair, has an excellent selection, and there is a fully-stocked liquor store on 12th Street. Conch Shell Beach Villa is the right villa for persons looking for deserted beaches, exploring by boat, kayak, golf cart, and bicycles, and making their own fun. Thank you so much for your review, and we look forward to seeing you again.
Lorraine made all the arrangements to get us from the airport to the villa and back. The villa was just as described and shown in the pictures -- a very pretty, clean and comfortable place to stay. The beach is beautiful, the yard is gorgeous, and the mattresses were the most comfortable ones we've slept on away from home. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the washer/dryer were great to have. The boat that went along with the rental was wonderful, and we spent hours out on the water every day, fishing, snorkeling and sightseeing. Lorraine and Brent answered all our questions and were very helpful. We recommend this property in the most glowing terms! Spanish Wells is a wonderful place to visit. We rented a golf cart as well, which was great for tootling around the island and going across the bridge to Russell Island.

Owner response: Thank you for your glowing review. We strive to keep our guests happy. We do take care of our guests' arrangements from the airport to the villa, and make sure you have the friendliest and most helpful taxi and ferry service. Yes, the beach is amazing, and the garden a tropical beauty. New mattresses are purchased often to keep our guests comfortable. It is great that you used the boat every day; it is a great way to explore, fish, and dive. A golf cart is always handy for exploring by land, shopping, dining out, etc. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves at Conch Shell Beach Villa in beautiful Spanish Wells. We look forward to your return.
Wonderful Beach Home
Wonderful Beach Home
We had an amazing vacation at this house in Spanish Wells! It was our first time to the island and the house was perfect. We had 4 adults and it was very comfortable and spacious. The outside deck with table just extends the living space. We cooked almost all of our meals and enjoyed the trips to the local shops, especially the fresh baked bread everyday! Having the kayaks and boat allowed us to explore the nearby islands and do some great fishing. I would highly recommend this for anyone that wants a true island getaway. The local people were very nice and it was fun exploring in the golf cart. We can't wait for our next trip back!

Owner response: It was so wonderful to have met you all. I'm so happy that you had a wonderful first experience to our island. Conch Shell Beach Villa is perfect for four adults vacationing together. Yes, indeed, most renters spend most of their time on the front porch of the villa. It offers up beautiful sea views and nice sea breezes. The kitchen is well equipped for those that want to do a lot of their own cooking. The outside barbecue also gets a lot of use. Fresh home made breads, pies, and fudge are a favorite with visitors and locals alike, as is the fresh home made ice cream! The kayaks and motor boat are a lot of fun and do give our guests the oppportunity to explore and experience much more of what the local area has to offer. A golf cart is a fun way to explore Spanish Wells and Russell Island by land. Our guests find that Spanish Wells has the friendliest and most helpful locals. Thank you very much for highly recommending Conch Shell Beach Villa. We look forward to your next visit.
My wife and I had a great time at Conch Shell Villa. This was my first time to Spanish Wells. The people on the island are exceptionally friendly. The oceanfront house had a great view of the nicest beach on the island. Having access to the boat allowed us to exlore different islands. It also helped us to snorkel at different spots. We get plenty of conch, three starfish and other creatures from the ocean. The house was very comfortable. We enjoyed cooking in with the grill. The kayak was fun to go across to the other island. I've never experienced such warm water in all the bahamas.

Owner response: Congratulations on your wedding! We hope many happy years follow. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your honeymoon at Conch Shell Beach Villa. Truly, the villa offers wonderful views and the nicest beach. The Spanish Wells locals are some of the nicest persons you will ever meet. The motor boat and kayak provided with the rental of Conch Shell Beach Villa are great ways to explore the area. Those were definitely really nice starfish that you found. I suppose you ate the conchs before I saw them? We look forward to welcoming you back again next time.
My husband and I spent a week at Conch Shell Beach Villa and loved every moment of it. The view is spectacular! We had a lot of fun on both the kayak and the boat. Also fun to explore the island(s) by golf cart and bicycle. The house provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. Highly recommend the place to anyone.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed every moment of your vacation at Conch Shell Beach Villa. Yes, there is a lovely view of the beach and turquiose clear sea, and most guests find that they never run out of things to do until they want to. Most guests enjoy kayaking, boating, exploring, beachcombing, cycling, shopping, para sailing, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, and riding around Spanish Wells and Russell Island in golf carts. And, after all of that activitiy, most guests just enjoy relaxing in the hammock on the beach. We look forward to welcoming you back next time.
We have been vacationing in the Eleuthera & Spanish Wells area for 15 years, and have rented private homes each year in South, North, and Central Eleuthera. 7 years ago we rented Conch Shell Beach Villa, and we have returned to Conch Shell Beach Villa for each of the past 7 years. The villa itself is comfy, light, airy, and always clean. We have stayed there with other couples and with our daughter and her children. Everyone we bring to the villa loves it, and they all ask when they can return. My little granddaughter always says that she wants to “go back to her pink house!” You really can’t find a better beach for little ones anywhere. The beach in front of the villa is shallow, warm, calm, & sandy; it is just like bath water, a place where they want to play all day. The boat at the villa is a huge plus. (Otherwise, the least expensive boat rental on the island is about $500/wk.) We love taking the boat out to the wonderful barrier reef just off shore. We’ve seen turtles, colorful sea fans, whole sand dollars, sea stars, and beautiful fish of every description. We’ve also had the wonderful experience of swimming with friendly dolphins in the wild; an amazing experience that the entire family will never forget. We have also been boating around Spanish Wells, Pierre Rocks, Russell Island, Royal Island, Egg Island, Meek’s Patch, North Eleuthera, and the lovely Ben Bay Beach; there’s something new to explore and discover on each little island. We’ve also had fun tooling around the town of Spanish Wells on the bicycles, and my daughter and her husband made it a practice to go kayaking each and every morning. Conch Shell is on an extra large beachfront property with the most amazing 30+ feet tall coconut palms and other tropical foliage. All the homes around Conch Shell are also on a few acres of property, and there is no public beach access in the area. Quite often we never see another soul on the beach. There is an excellent large grocery store in Spanish Wells, just ½ mile from the villa; it offers just about everything that we are used to in the U.S. There are wonderful home bakeries where we purchase fresh piping hot bread and pastries at 10:30 a.m. each morning. There are a number of restaurants that serve Bahamian and American dishes that are reasonably priced. The cracked conch, conch chowder, and grilled lobster are excellent choices. The owners are wonderful people and have become good friends. We will return next year!

Owner response: Thanks for your review. Having free use of a boat, 2-person ocean kayak, and bicycles is a great deal. They are a great way to explore the area. This beachfront property is in a neighborhood of large beachfront estate properties where there is no public beach access, and, thus, the Conch Shell Beach Villa beachfront property is quite secluded, but the conveniences of grocery shops, restaurants, bakeries, photo shops, medical clinics, and homemade ice cream shops are all just 1/2 mile away. So, this property offers the best of all worlds. We are happy to assist all our guests in any way we can. They arrive as guests and leave as friends who we enjoy welcoming back year after year.
