Guestbook comments from the owner

A month in Spanish Wells

Guest: Hilary (Ottawa, Canada)

Date of Stay: 01/05/12 Review Submitted: 01/31/12

I don't know if I like all these good reviews of Western View Cottage, as then it will become too popular and will be hard for us to rent again!! All of the above reviews are very true. We are just leaving after spending a month in this house and we were welcomed with the same delicious lobster dinner, and ride from the ferry, and we also had a great afternoon out with Tyson on his fishing boat. April made us a lovely banana cake as well as the lobster dinner, and we always felt very welcome and comfortable here. There were four of us here, all retirees, and Tyson and April call us "the Golden Girls"!! The house is literally only minutes from the beach shown in the photographs and we usually had it all to ourselves. Having the free golf cart and kayaks are a huge bonus, as we have been able to go wherever we wanted. The house was very comfortable and spacious, and is an excellent deal. Being able to made free phone calls to Canada was the absolutel best, as we all have families back home that we missed. The people of Spanish Wells are extremely friendly and everyone waves to you as you pass by. We tried to get to know them better and went to the Bingo night and the Karaoke which is held on a Saturday night. Many people insisted we come back the following week - so we did - and it was even more fun than the first time! We made friends with many of the neighbours on our quiet street, getting to know them and their pets, and came home one day and found some freshly picked tomatoes waiting for us on the doorstep! We also regularly visited a local fisherman who sits on a nearby wharf every day and he made us the best Conch salad we have ever tasted! Tyson took us on a great tour of Eleuthera one day, showing us all the famous spots like the Queen's Baths and some of the fancy new resorts. The day we went out on his fishing boat we caught four fish and he filleted the huge grouper right on the boat. We had it for dinner that night! We only ate out once or twice, but the food at the little restaurant on the wharf, is very good. We also had the opportunity to visit the island's museum one morning and hear about the fascinating history of the people of Spanish Wells and see all the photos and artifacts in an original house. We are sad to leave such a peaceful, friendly and beautiful island, and all its people.but hope to return very, very soon.

Better than last year!

This was our 2nd time to Western View and with the updates the house was better than before! The beach, the bridge, the lobster... the island itself was awesome and can’t wait to come back!

Adorable house with tons of room!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Western View Cottage. The house is big, clean, and has tons of comfortable beds! The house was stocked with necessary toiletries and kitchen items. We grilled steaks one night on the gas grill. Thank you so much!

Western View Cottage was the perfect place to stay. 12 of us slept comfortably. The living room and kitchen were perfect. The yard allowed for grilling, relaxing and talking. The location was great. It allowed for a quick walk to the beach and a quick golf cart ride to everything. We utilized the paddle boards, kayaks, washer/dryer, grill, wifi, golf cart and beach toys. The owners are extremely accommodating and provided all "need to know" information in a binder in the house. Already planning on staying there again even if it is not all of us going.

The western view cottage was perfect for my family of five. Just a short walk to the beach and a golf cart to ride the town. Tyson’s charter was so fun, it’s a must! April was very helpful. Hope to see you guys soon!

Great location for beach lovers

  • 4 of 5

For 6 years, we have been travelling to Eleuthera in late winter (we live in Canada) to meet with friends of ours for a get-away trip. This was our first year at Spanish Wells, so there were lots of first-time experiences. In addition, our two teen-age granddaughters and one of our daughters and her family joined us. All together there were 9 of us in the home, and there was room for all. Ty and April were very helpful with information, and quick to respond to questions we might have had. Most of the information we read from other reviews was accurate. Our transportation to and from the airport to Western View Cottage was arranged by April and Ty, and the price was reasonable. For beach lovers, there was a quick walk to the beach (really...only 3-4 minutes!) and usually places at the beach to hang out under sun-shelters (either canopy or tree-shaded). For beachwalkers, there are over two miles of continuous sandy beaches. For those who like the salty water, the half-mile of shallow water is great for cooling off or kid-friendly playing. For swimmers, there is a channel leading towards a bridge for swimming. For fishermen, there were some sightings of bonefish, but otherwise not much fishing action from the shore or a kayak. It was $500 for a half-day out on a boat with a guide, and no guarantee of catching anything edible. Because of that cost, we did not partake of the pig-swimming nor the snorkeling, nor any other off-island activities. Western View Cottage was clean and wi-fi was available and fast most of the time. There was a well-equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, and it had a wonderful back-yard patio (would have been better if the yard was better-groomed) where a cool breeze and plenty of shade made it a great place to gather in the morning or at the end of a busy day. (Note: do not encourage the wandering cats to hang around - they could be nasty!) Many of our other concerns could have been handled with an information binder of some sort (what is available and what the guests have to purchase - such as toilet paper, garbage bags, dish soap, laundry soap, etc. We could have brought many of these things from home had we known, since the island prices are really up there); locations and times of store availability (holiday closures, noon closures, where one might find emergency items to purchase when the regular stores are closed). All-in-all, we are hoping to return!

Owner's Response: We do our very best to ensure that our guest have the best time while staying with us on vacation. We have the house fully stocked with garbage bags ,toilet paper,dishwashing soap, to get you through the first few days ,But I guess after being in the house after a few days with nine people I guess it ran out pretty quickly. We also supply 5 gallons of drinking water on arrival to get you through the first few days.The gardener didn’t want to mow the back lawn because there were clothes hanging on the line he didnt want get them dirty. As for our Fishing charters and Adventures we always guarantee at Reef Fishing that you will catch enough fish for quite a few meals. We always inform our guest of the holidays to make sure that they get all the items that they need from the store before they close . There is also a little convenience store,Island Mart that is opened every day 8 AM till 8 PM with enough supplies to get you through the holidays . We always aim to please our guest ,ensuring they have the best vacation ever!!
