Recent Spanish Wells property reviews

  • Million dollar views with affordable family price tag!

    "We spent last Spring Break at Ocean Dreams and have been dreaming about it ever since! We had such a unique and special trip for our first time to the Bahamas and could not have enjoyed the property more. My husband and I traveled with two teenagers and a ten year old. Pros: The privacy of the house. You have a 360 up close water view all to yourself. The pink sand is right there with NOTHING obstructing your view. The sand is soft and the water is as blue as any you will ever see. It is that amazing! Unfortunately, it was a bit windy when we were there so we were disappointed in the snorkeling. We were told that the snorkeling about a half mile out at the Devil's Backbone would be good, but it was too vast and windy to see much. The good news is that in that same spot the fishing was great (we rented Jody's little boat for the week) and we had fresh snapper every night! Other pros include the cleanliness of the house and the sleeping quarters. Great layout and everyone was comfortable. We all loved the use of the golf cart. The biggest pro is probably the hospitality of the Pinders. Jody and Tara did everything they could to make us feel at home. And we really did. Tara had a pan of lobster tails awaiting us upon arrival. Loved talking to Jody about lobster fishing. They even invited us to church on Easter Sunday and we felt like we were visiting friends with hugs from all and invitations to the kids to youth group! Since this is a review, I will mention the cons but they didn't really overly bother us, but it might be nice to know: this house is listed as new and it is no longer in "new" condition. It is right on the water so I am sure the salt air ages things rapidly. The pots and pans, etc. looked like they had been well-used. The washing machine broke while we were there and flooded the house. (Jody responded promptly.) The living quarters of the house is spare. So if you have plans on hanging out together as a family it is a little tight inside. In warmer weather that would be fine as the deck is expansive and perfect, but the evenings were chilly when we were there. We loved Spanish Wells and thought Ocean Dreams was perhaps the best property there. Don't hesitate to rent this property."

  • Great place and even better people!

    "Just spent a great week in Spanish Wells at Paradise Beach Cottage with my family (myself, wife, boys 10 and 7). House is super clean and well appointed. Fantastic location right in the middle of town, everything is very convenient. We rented the Boston Whaler as well for the week and it was great, loved the ease to go snorkeling or fishing or just exploring so easily. The house is just right for a beach hangout, and we loved to grill most nights as well, we ate almost every meal at the house just because it was so pleasant. Got good usage out of the full size washer/dryer as well so we didn't have to bring nearly as many clothes. The real treasure though is the people. Bonnie and her family made us feel like guests, not renters. We got to know their family and they were very generous in so many ways to us. The whole island is that way, it was great to go to Kathy's bakery in the morning and get Johnny Cakes and Banana Bread or to go to Papa Scoops after dinner for an ice cream the people just make you feel at home. It's such a different feeling than other places we have been in the Bahamas and Caribbean, it's also very safe. Highly recommended!"

  • Great place to stay for the best price

    "7:21am Theresa Crain My family and I just returned from our vacation on Spanish Wells, Bahamas. This year we stayed in a rental called Western View and it was perfect! From the moment arrived, we were greeted by friendly locals at N. Eleuthra airport - Guerney and Calvin Pinder. They also took us by boat to Spanish Wells where we were greeted by our hostess, April Newbold! She was as friendly in person as she was during our conversations on face book! Since our cottage wasn't ready, April offered to store our belongings at her house and gave us her personal golf cart to use so we could enjoy the beach sooner than later! We were so happy to be back on the island and out kids were thrilled too! After a swim and sand castles, our rental was ready mid afternoon and upon our arrival, our luggage was waiting for us, and a lobster dinner was on the table (cooked by April)! Yummy! Although our rental was not located right on the beach, it was a five minute walk or a 2 minute golf cart ride. This 3 bedroom, fully equipped rental is the only one on the island that comes with a golf cart (approx. $250 per week) and a home made lobster dinner upon arrival :0) Although Spanish Wells is a quiet island, it is the perfect location for swimming, shelling, daily walks along the beach, sand castles, fishing, reading, relaxing and golf carting around town. Kathy's bakery has the best home made bread, the new restaurant, The ShipYard offers scrumptious meals and alcoholic beverages, Harbourside has wonderful gifts to buy and enjoy along with Boston whaler boat rentals (we rented a boat for a day and it was magical being out on the water and finding private cays and enjoying snorkeling), the Snack bar also offers delicious food and yummy ice cream, the new Smoothie bar offers a blend of refreshing drinks on hot days and Norma's Seaside Restaurant has good lunch items too! All in all, I would definitely recommend a vacation on Spanish Wells as well as the rental, Western View! It is everything you see and read about online and more! . ... Theresa Crain"

  • Wonderful spot!!!

    "We recently spent a week at this house and it was maybe the best location we have ever stayed on vacation! The house sits on the best beach we could find anywhere. We had a boat for the week (rented golf carts and the boat from John Underwood who was great), and did a lot of exploring to other beaches and islands but always ended up back in front of the house. We went with another family and with five kids between all of us, the shallow waters in front of the house went on forever and we were never stressed about small kids in the water. The house has EVERYTHING you need, including a full cupboard for cooking meals, beach toys, beach chairs, kayaks, books to read and games to play. All you really need is a couple changes of clothes and yourself! We enjoyed boating around, snorkeling at the reef right out front, and jumping off the bridge walking distance from the house. Thank you for having such an inviting rental, we will definitely be telling our friends and hope to be back ourselves."
