Palm 22 - Beachfront Cottage with Spectacular Views/Beach

Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 10)

Main Beach Cottage Description

This charming beach front cottage was built in 2005 with family activities in mind. The layout provides ample space for large family gatherings and, conversely, offers multiple areas for kids to play and adults to relax. A large portion of the first floor faces the beach and has an open design where the kitchen, dining area and family room flow together creating a spacious great room. The first floor also has a bedroom, full bathroom with shower and separate laundry area for added convenience. An extra wide staircase, leading to the upstairs, has hand rails positioned at two different heights for the safety of adults and small children.

A fun atmosphere abounds on the second floor. Kids love playing on the swing, the wall to wall suspended netting, and the rope ladder that leads to a 200 square foot loft that can be built into a formidable fortress. The second floor also has a master bedroom and a bunkroom, each opening to a balcony deck with incredible views of the ocean. Both bedrooms have a private bathroom with double pedestal sinks and a deep soaker tub. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the bunk room has two sets of built-in bunk beds. Also on the second floor are two semi private sleeping areas. One area is situated with two twin beds and the other area has a twin bed with a DVD player.

Much of the furniture in the cottage was hand crafted out of salvaged material from local ship wrecks and the artwork throughout was done by Michael Cashmore Hingley, whose artwork is featured on numerous buildings throughout Spanish Wells. The cottage is appointed with all of the needed amenities; broad band wireless internet access, Vonage phone service for free calls to/from the US, cable TV, DVD player, flat screen TVs, base station marine radio, washer, dryer, microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven, refrigerator with ice dispenser/water and six- zone climate control for ultimate comfort throughout the entire cottage.

Comfort and convenience continues in the outdoor living areas. The covered, ocean side deck, running the entire width of the cottage, has Adirondack chairs and indirect lighting that is perfect for nighttime viewing of passing cruise ships and star gazing. Steps from the ocean side deck and a wooden walkway lead to an outdoor shower on the side of the cottage. This is the first stop for most guests returning from the beach where they can enjoy a clean rinse with welcoming hot and cold water. The covered porch on the inland side also runs the entire width of the cottage. A barbeque grill is located on this porch, which is convenient to the kitchen and assures untimely afternoon showers won’t interrupt dinner preparation. The adjacent lower level deck, with chaise lounges, is a nice, protected alternative if the wind is blowing hard out of the North or East.

The property spills onto a spectacular sandy beach with crystal clear, shallow, safe, warm water. The beach is protected by beautiful barrier coral reefs which tame large waves and prevent dangerous rip tides. The warm, calm water provides endless hours of entertainment for the whole family, to include snorkeling and fishing. There is a fish cleaning table with running water near the water’s edge, making it convenient to quickly clean any fish that are caught. If just hanging out and relaxing is your thing you will enjoy the hammock that is shaded by palm trees and cooled by ocean breezes.

Situated on 12th Street, the cottage location on Spanish Wells is ideal and is within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, churches and grocery stores.

Optional Guest Cottage

A recently added guest cottage on the property is now available for rent in conjunction with main beach house rental. This nicely appointed two-level guest cottage offers an additional bedroom with king-size bed plus two bathrooms (one with an indoor shower and the other with a private outdoor shower). The guest cottage also includes a kitchen, dining room and living room and would be perfect for grandparents, aunts, uncles or friends of your family. The cottage is for adults only with a max of two occupants. The nightly charge for the guest cottage is $150 per night and it is only available to those renting the main beach house or the property owners.

About Joe Brandon

Family man with a beautiful wife and 3 wonderful children, avid outdoors man, loving anything to do with water, 30+ years in the technology field in the Mid-Atlantic region of the US.

Picture above was taken in Spanish Wells in 2010. I was holding dinner for 5.

Why Joe Brandon chose Spanish Wells

A long time friend invited me and my family to stay at his beach house in Spanish Wells. We went in April, 2010 and had a wonderful time snorkeling, fishing, beachcombing, building sand castles, riding bikes, watching the sunset, having ice cream, grilling what we caught spear fishing and relaxing. It was incredible and my kids still tell others that it was the BEST vacation ever. I've challenged them on their declaration but they say the trip to Spanish Wells was better than the Atlantis, Disney World, Caribbean Cruises and all of our beach trips on the east coast.

I know it's hard to believe but it's the truth! As a family we were not in a rush to get to nor distracted by any of the commercial offerings that are typical of vacation destinations. Spanish Wells is not commercialized at all; rather it is beautiful, safe, and the islanders are very accommodating.

I too enjoyed this vacation immensely so I spent the last day of our vacation looking at real estate. When my friend learned that I was interested in buying a place on the island he offered me part ownership of the beach house. We have closed the deal and are now offering a limited number of rentals to help offset expenses.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Sorry for the late reply, just been real busy since I got back this week.

The house was loved by all and Johnny was a huge help with everything. Thank you so much for a wonderful house!

Incredible Home!

  • 5 of 5

There are so very many positives things about this vacation home that I don't know where to start. There were nine people in our group and this home was perfect for us. Located DIRECTLY on the beach with its own private back yard, two decks to enjoy the sunset, hammock, games and of course the crystal blue waters. The interior is decorated perfectly and gives that tropical feeling even when you are inside. The kitchen was well supplied and easy to navigate. The beds were comfortable and the there were so many spaces that even with our large group we still never felt crowded. There are multiple restaurants to walk to and no car was needed. We rented golf carts while we were there and they were perfect for getting anywhere on the island. There were many highlights from our trip to Spanish Wells, jumping off the bridge, fishing charters, family dinners in the large dining room, packing a lunch and eating at the spectacular sandbar and of course feeding the pigs on pig island. Another highlight is that my 19 year old son actually caught a shark. What a surprise! (no worries, he was fine and we released him). Another wonderful benefit of renting this home is the owner, Joe was an amazing host and took the time to fill us in on all the things we should see and do while we were there and took the time to make sure that we were well taken care of. The caretakers, Johnny and Nancy were wonderful! If there was anything that we needed or had forgotten they were so gracious and helpful. Make sure you rent a charter (or more) from Underwood Charters. They are the best!

Overall, I give this property and Joe, the owner five plus stars! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. We will be back but this time it will be for two weeks not one! It simply wasn't enough time in paradise.

Our fourth stay!

  • 5 of 5

I think that fact that we are repeat visitors says it all! This visit , we were three couples and the house worked perfectly. We all shared the cooking with occasional visits to local restaurants. The kitchen was well equipped and we especially liked the ice maker and large water jugs. Because we had several windy days, we used both porches for sitting out and reading. Johnny and Nancy, the caretakers, as usual were awesome! We rented two buggies from them as well as their boat for an afternoon on the water.

Great house directly on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Palm 22 very much. There were six of us - 3 couples- and everyone felt like they had enough privacy. The beach is directly behind the house and the island is easy to navigate (just remember to look both ways before crossing the street as they drive on the left). It was a little stormy while we were there so we didn't spend a lot of time on the beach but the house was very comfortable and had everything we needed - including great high speed internet which we can't even get at home in NY.

If you book a fishing trip during your stay, definitely do it in the early part of your stay and you will have fish to eat all week!

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at Palm 22! The views of the ocean from the house were breathtaking at all times of the day, morning, noon, and sunset! We have three boys ages 9, 6, and 4 and they LOVED the ocean here! Tide is high in the morning so they played in the waves, by afternoon, the tide was low and they could build their sandcastles and walk out to the sandbars and play football or kickball. The house has everything you need, we had 9 people in our family staying all together and we never once felt crowded. We didn't even use one of the bedrooms! We did a charter with Bruno Underwood, highly recommend him as well! Very funny, knows the ocean well, the day was ours to decide what to do and we did it all! Snorkeling, fishing, cliff jumping, beach combing, swam with the pigs, etc. It was definitely a day to remember. He also took us to one of the prettiest sandbars I have ever seen! We did reef fishing for only an hour and a half ( our choice since we had so much we wanted to do) and caught enough fish to feed 9 people for two nights! I imagine if you just did a fishing charter, you could catch enough for the entire week. What a great place, the locals are very friendly and Johnny and his wife are one of the nicest couples we have ever met! I can't wait to return, we were so sad to leave yesterday. You cannot go wrong booking this property, it was truly an unforgettable place. :)
