The winter offers low humidity and the water and air temperature can be in the upper 70's with stronger north winds.

Spanish Wells is a unique place with a rich history dating back to the 1600's with ties to England. This beach location is a short walk to shopping and dining. Lobster fishing is the main industry on the Island. You will find three churches on the island and several restaurants including our traditional 50+ year old Anchor Snack Bar. Our newest (Opened July 2013) and our fine dining choice would be The Shipyard Restaurant located right on the east most point of the island surrounded on 2 sides with water, breathtaking view and relaxing dining. Where you can enjoy a fine meal or just a relaxing evening cocktail while watching the sunset.

A bike ride around the island will be about four miles.

It is a peaceful place to get away from city life and enjoy island living. A local fast ferry stops each day with connections to Harbour Island and Nassau. Golf carts and watercrafts are available for rent. Fishing and Scuba trips easy to arrange.

The island is easy to get to with daily air service to North Eleuthera (ELH) from Fort Lauderdale, Miami Atlanta or Nassau airports. Flight time is approximately one hour. The airport is serviced by Silver Airways, American Eagle and United form Florida and Delta from Atlanta Georgia. Bahamas Air, Southern Air and Pineapple Air are the airlines available from Nassau. A cab cost about $25 to pick up the local water taxi, which is about $6 per person. The water taxi will bring you to St. Georges Cay where the Beach House is located and the community is called Spanish Wells.

A great place for relaxing and enjoying the Bahamas!

Fantastic holiday 😍😎

  • 5 of 5

Once again a wonderful stay at Ocean Dreams. The house is comfortable and very clean.. I was there with my family for our r annual summer vacation.There were seven of us and we had plenty of room. My two grandchildren (12 & 16) especially enjoyed the bunk beds which were very comfortable. The upstairs front bedroom Has a little balcony which looks out to the sea. It is so peaceful just to sit and relax. The deck is a great place to barbecue and relax after a day of swimming.

We booked a tour with Jody (Capt. Kidd) to see the Swimming With The Pigs. What a treat that was. He also took us snorkeling and swimming at the sand bank. The piece de resistance was of course was Tara’s muffins. This was the highlight of our trip.

Not to forget Tara’s delicious lemon meringue pie which we got when we arrived.

Jody & Tara are very gracious host and they always make sure that their guest are happy and well looked after.

Thank you Jody & Tara for a memorable holiday.🇧🇸😍😎

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Spanish Wells. Jody and Tara were wonderful hosts and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. The house is wonderful and is just like described. Tara is an amazing baker and made us a delicious pie and muffins on the day we went on our excursion.

Incredibly relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we spent in Spanish Wells at Jody and Tara’s house! It is right on the water along a beautiful beach. The house is extremely clean and inviting. Lots of space. Great deck and outdoor seating. My favorite place was the hammock by the water. The golf cart that’s included was great for exploring the island. The house is in a great spot...taking only a couple minutes to get anywhere you need to.

The island is small and very peaceful. It is also incredibly safe...which helped us feel at ease right away. We loved all the restaurants but our favorites were Shipyard, Sandbar and Buddha’s. We stopped at Papa Scoops most nights. So good!

Jody and Tara couldn’t have been better hosts. Great communication. Wonderful people. Any question we had they answered. The also arranged our transportation to and from the airport, picked us up and dropped us off at the docks. Tara gave us a tour of the island when we arrived, and she let us check in early which was very much appreciated! Then she even had a delicious pie waiting for us! A couple of days later she came by with a cookie cake that was decorated for us because it was our honeymoon. She was so thoughtful!

Overall it was an amazing honeymoon where we could truly just unplug, unwind and forget about any other stress. Thank you Jody and Tara!

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This home was so perfect for our family vacation. Everyone truly enjoyed it. The house is perfect, we had 6 adults and 1 child. The views are breathtaking, especially sunrises and sunsets, both seen from this house. Getting there was made so easy, Jody and Tara were so accommodating, and very nice. We look forward to coming back for more kayaking, snorkeling, and paddle boarding! The home, the island, the friendly people on the island, make this an absolute perfect vacation. Truly grateful for this experience. Can't wait to return!! Thank you Jody and Tara, for sharing your beautiful home!

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great beach house. Jody and Tara are wonderful hosts. They do their best to take care of any small request. The boat excursions were amazing. Our family of 13 had a wonderful week in both beach houses.

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

When one imagines a cozy beach cottage, this is the place they are thinking of... spectacular view, powdery white sand and all the comforts of home (we would prefer a firmer mattress, but that's a personal choice and it certainly wouldn't stop us from booking this lovely cottage again).

Jody and his wife are very friendly and accommodating.

If you are going to Spanish Wells, this is THE place to stay!
