About Roy and Linda Pinder (owners) Dylan Pinder (Property Manager)
Roy was born and raised on Spanish Wells and Linda was born in a settlement not too far away named current. We both love to meet new folks and entertain. Roy sings and plays the guitar when he is not working as a commercial lobster fisherman and Linda takes care of the home when she is not preparing fabulous meals for their guests
Why Roy and Linda Pinder (owners) Dylan Pinder (Property Manager) chose Spanish Wells
Roy and Linda have always lived next to this property and this is where they started their married life together. The previous owner was a sweet lady named Mrs Marjorie. This is where it gets its name. After Mrs Marjorie passed it seemed only natural to keep the place in the family.
What makes this Cottage unique
We consider all of our guest as our family. Since the property is close to our primary house, it makes it convenient to take care of our guests.

Beautiful beach, friendly people, cozy cottage
By far the cleanest beach with the softest sand we have ever stepped foot on! Our hosts were beyond gracious while giving us our space and privacy during our stay. The cottage has all the comforts of home; barbecue, cooler, beach chairs, bikes and the interior is also well stocked. While there were only two of us the house is suitable for at least 6 people.
The golf cart was awesome. There was not a day that we didn't cruise the island and adjacent Russell Island. Beaches during the day, cruised the harbor docks in the afternoon looking for fresh catch for sale, happy hours at the various restaurants and then dinner.
During our stay we had the opportunity for a boating/snorkeling excursion. The water is as clear as any I have ever seen; with an amazing array of shades of blue and green. Reefs, fish, turtles and starfish clearly visible. Highly recommend getting out to explore.
We also enjoyed two day trips; Harbor Island and Eleuthera. While both worthwhile to measure the variety of landscape and cultures the Out Islands of the Bahamas have to offer we were happy to get back to the peace and tranquility of Spanish Wells.
Roy and Linda Pinder are wonderful people. The food, knowledge, stories, hospitality and did I mention delicious traditional Bahamian food added to the immersed experience we were looking for. They both made us feel welcome...just like part of the family!
A charming house with everything you need, fantastic hosts!
A very nice house with a very well equipped kitchen, barbecue, microwave, wifi, internet phone, free golf cart, 2 person kayak, and lots of comfortable chairs. It is about a 300 m walk to a beautiful beach. Roy and Linda Pinder are incredibly great hosts. They live next store and are happy to help with anything you need. Roy even collected hermit crabs for my son to use as bait for fishing. Our stay was completely relaxing. I have no negative things to say.
Great Location & Amazing Hosts!
House is about 100 yards from the beach, and 90 seconds from the Food Fair via the complimentary golf cart (I timed it 😀�). Roy and Linda are awesome hosts who treated us like family! They frequently checked up on us to see if we needed anything. Roy was incredible with his knowledge of the area, and helped us arrange ferry and taxi trips—he took care of all the arrangements. And you won’t find a bigger “character” than Roy! He is a real hoot to talk to. I could listen to his stories for hours. Our trip wouldn’t have been anywhere near as much fun without Roy and Linda!
A wonderful experience, great location great house the pictures do not do it justice!!
We love to Spanish Wells what a wonderful place. Nothing compares to the beaches here. Roy and Linda are wonderful hosts.
Reasonable price, excellent unit, bicycles and golf cart included
The title says it all. Nicely air conditioned, wifi works fine (those are the essentials for me). Golf cart a bonus. Unit is nicely located close to Food Fair for groceries, and Budda's bar and liquor store just a few blocks away. We really enjoyed the bicycles, our favorite trips were with them, explored Russell island too. We didn't use the sea kayak however next time we will ask Roy to take it to the north end of 28th street where we will try to paddle out to an interesting looking island (make sure you are very comfortable with water before you attempt that). At low tide at the north end of 18th street you can make a short swim to a sand bar which is pretty neat, go for a stroll on it. We will be back, I don't want to tell you the 4 nights we were at Spanish Wells because you may beat us to the booking next year. Ask Roy to tell you his shark story - unbelievable, yet true. Dave.
Best vacation ever!
Our cottage was adorable and we were very comfortable there. The owner was most helpful with anything we needed. We were warmly greeted and felt welcome all week. We will definitely be going back and taking others with us!!
Spanish Wells is a unique, quaint fishing village with a diverse history ranging from early pioneers looking for freedom to pirates and most recently hard working fisherman who love the sea. The only way to the Island is by water taxi and the primary mode of transportation around the Island is by Golf Cart. If one could describe the ideal setting for folks looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and yet experience worry free living it would be Spanish Wells. The Island offers great people, great food and fantastic fishing and diving opportunities. There is no better location on the planet for kids and adults to experience the beach and water without the crowds.
