  • I love Ida

    "I've been here twice already (once in a group of 9 we booked 3 cottages and once 3 of us slept in one of the 2 bedroom cottages). I'm going again in February with my family. Ida is amazing and her cottages are beautiful. They are overlooking the most amazing beach and bay which has to be seen to be believed. Inside they are done up so nicely and have everything you need. The golf carts that come with the cottages are so handy, Ida picks you up from the airport in her big car, and arranges for you to rent a boat (they have different sizes) for the day. It's close enough to see the swimming pigs, iguana beach, the sharks at compass cay, thunderball grotto and Staniel cay yacht club. I've recommended for so many people to go here, it is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. The cottages are right above the beach so you can pop up and down all day. She has sunloungers on the beach and a new gazebo for some shade. I can't recommend this place or Ida herself more. I can't wait to go back again!"

  • Incredible

    "y wife and I stayed at mermaid point for 3 days during our honeymoon and it was incredible. This house was very clean, spacious, and had everything you could possibly need for an island getaway. The descriptions of amenities were accurate. The pictures of the house did not do it justice we were pleasantly surprised how large the house was. The views from the deck were spectacular and it was a few minutes walk to ten bay beach which was usually deserted. The owners were very accommodating and were there if we had any questions. There is was a map and binder full of restaurant suggestions which we found very helpful. The house is also less than an hour drive to harbour island and lighthouse beach. If you are second guessing yourself about this house......don't because it is incredible. Thanks again to the owners."

  • 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) !!"

  • Excellent location for an excellent vacation in Spanish Wells

    "My wife and I stayed in "Boondocks" apartment. It's not a large unit, but it's all you needed for two people. We had everything we needed in the apartment. One bedroom, bathroom and shower, kitchen and living room area. The owner Boone will answer all of your questions about your reservation and the island. Boone made us feel completely safe about our decision to rent his apartment. I would definitely rent from Boone in the future. Boone has a representative on the island and his name is Johnny Underwood. Johnny will make sure you are escorted from the airport to the boat dock then to your apartment. This is a unique vacation and getting to the island is half the fun. You can only enter onto the island by a boat. Here was our itinerary. Miami airport to North Eleuthera Island Airport. Taxi from North Eleuthera Airport to Jean's Bay Boat dock. (about 6 miles) Then, a short boat ride over to Spanish Wells. (about a half mile) Your taxi driver to the boat dock will also be your boat captain to Spanish Wells. Johnny will pick you up from the Spanish Wells boat dock and take you on a golf cart to the house. Your won't get this type of customer service in the US. Once you get to the house, it's time to vacation. Boone has everything at the house to keep you busy. He has two bicycles and two kayaks for your use during your vacation. It's easy to get around the island on a bicycle, but I would recommend renting a golf cart from Johnny for the week. We would ride bikes in the morning and take the golf cart out at night for dinner. At the house, the view is incredible and you're 30 feet from the beach. You can enjoy the patio or walk down to the beach. The beach is great. At low tides, you can probably walk a mile in half on the beach and you probably won't pass a person during your walk. It's like your own private island. You will love it. You must be prepared for a relaxing vacation because there's not a lot of entertainment on the island. They have 5 restaurants on the island. (1 restaurant and 4 small dinners) The main restaurant is called the Shipyard. Great location, great breeze and a great outside deck for dining. You can also take ride on your bikes/golf cart over the bridge to Russell Island. No restaurants on that island, but it was fun to explore during the day. Make sure to pick up a map when you get on Spanish Wells Island. My wife and I fell in love with the island and the people. Great island, great island scenery, great local people! Enjoy"
