  • Spanish Wells = Best kept secret on the planet !

    "My husband and I just returned on Oct. 4th from Spanish Wells. We spend our 10th Anniversary at Western View Cottage owned by the wonderful Newbold family. I truly can't say enough good things about them or the island! It was exactly what we were looking for....beauty, solitude and a safe, quiet, and CLEAN place to decompress from hustle & bustle of daily life at home. The house was VERY spacious (more than we needed really) but was nice to be able to sprawl out :) We plan to rent the Coral Cove next year. Wifi was perfect so that very nice as that was a concern for us. Tyson took us fishing/lobster spearing where we caught 4 lobsters, black fin tuna, barracuda and lost a couple wahoo! What a blast and the highlight of our trip...THANKS Tyson! We also went to the neighboring Russell , Harbour and Eleuthera Islands and we absolutely loved learning the history of each. The beaches are the best we've ever seen (and we've been to many islands) and we had them all to ourselves each day we were there. We had a blast snorkeling and kayaking each day. The people are as friendly and helpful as the come always greeting you with a smile and wave. I've been to 13 countries and not one has left such an impression on me as Spanish Wells did. It was truly a breath of fresh air in an ever darkening world full of wars, crime and hate. I pray to the Almighty that it remains preserved in such a manner that it is today. Until we meet again Spanish Wells.....Much love & many Blessings to you all !! Kim & Ian Smaagaard Fort Knox, KY (Go Wildcats) !!"

  • Awesome retreat

    "My husband and I just spent a week at Cockleshell Beach Cottage. I think we found paradise - out the back door. This is an amazing location - if you are looking to relax and just enjoy the water! It is right on the beach. Perfect location."

  • Simply the Best

    "I've rented very many properties but never felt so welcome or had such a great time as I did here. The cheery wooden building has an upstairs with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. There’s another en-suite bedroom downstairs and a useful half-bath/laundry room. The house has everything you need from well equipped kitchen to fast internet connection. Outside is a large deck with table, chairs, deck chairs and a comfortable sofa. A few feet away is the lovely white sand beach. I’d say the location is the best on the island and Jody and Tara are building a second house next door. They were away on our arrival day so Jody’s lovely mum showed us to the house and helped us with supplies. His dad popped round later to check we were settling in okay. Spanish Wells and Russell Island can be explored with the golf cart. It fits perfectly with the laidback feel of the place and allows the friendly locals time to wave as they pass. There's always something to do on the beach, you can snorkel off it, enjoy the sea kayaks with a trip to the small rocky islands opposite the house, go walking or shelling or get your camera out or just relax on the loungers under the warm Bahamian sun. After dark there’s an excellent view of the Milky Way. We had everything from windy and stormy to pleasant and calm, it all added interest and didn't stop us doing anything we wanted. If you wish to go a little further afield take a short boat ride to Eleuthera and watch the Atlantic crash into the Caribbean at the Glass Window then take a drive to see caves, rock pools and beaches. The ferries from the other side of Eleuthera will take you to Harbour Island. Snorkelling in the warm waters around Spanish Wells or on Devil's Backbone reef is a must, they’re teaming with interesting sea life for you to look at. Then there's Jody and Tara, two of the nicest, most generous people you’ll ever meet. Nothing is too much trouble, they just want you to have a great holiday. The lobster tails they welcomed us with were only topped by Jody's enviable skill with a bbq. Let's just say that Jody was also a big help with our day trips, the result being a brilliant and totally stress free holiday. You might arrive as strangers, but you'll leave as friends. Thank you Jody and Tara. I can pay this place no greater compliment than to say I want to go back. If you want to rent a relaxing slice of paradise from a couple of completely trustworthy and decent people, stop looking, you just found it."

  • Perfect Get Away

    "The house is exactly what one would envision of a true beach house. It resonates character throughout and you can feel it in the hand built strength of the house as you walk through the driftwood trimmed door ways and bead board walls. Appropriately decorated in hand tooled tables with sand filled items from the sea, comfortable chairs, and beds for many visitors, the house establishes a personal connection immediately. There is even an indoor tree swing under the sail nets on the second floor which my niece loved. The house sits directly on the beach as the large back deck and spacious yard provide views of the emerald and blue ocean that are outstanding as you view them through the mature Palm trees which are scattered throughout. My favorite spot was the hammock after lunch! The house is right on the water and it is just so convenient for taking full advantage of the beach and the water. We were unsure as to how our three year old would be acceptable to the beach but by the second day we had trouble getting him out of the water. He loved the afternoon walks out on an exposed sandbar at low tide just a short distance from the house. He even found a perfect sand dollar to start a collection of his own. Everyone we met has been so accommodating and nice...we definitely want to return!!"
