Spanish Wells

Car: Not Necessary

Spanish Wells is community on the island of St. George's Cay, located at the northern tip of Eleuthera in the beautiful Bahamas. Spanish Wells is approximately two miles long and half a mile wide. The island has been extended by a bridge linking it to neighboring Russell Island. Spanish Wells has a population of approximately 1,500 residents. The people of Spanish Wells are known for their hard work, community spirit, friendliness, and strong principles. Historically, the island was used as a last stop for Spanish ships returning to Europe, where these ships refilled their water supply from wells created for this purpose.

Spanish Wells is predominantly a fishing village and is referred to as the fishing capital of The Bahamas. The main catch harvested from the sea by the fishermen is the Bahamian crawfish similar to lobster. Spanish Wells is an innovative community with a wide array of products and services available. Almost everything needed for modern day to day living can be obtained on the island.

Residents take great pride in their island. This is reflected in the upkeep of their homes and gardens which are landscaped with creativity and precision. Other than vehicles the most common mode of transport is by golf carts. Locals and guests leave their doors unlocked as crime is nonexistent. The local language is English spoken with somewhat of a British accent

There is a varied transportation system within St George’s which ensures goods and passengers flow to and from not only The Bahamas but the rest of the world. There are many avenues that provide this essential service, including freight and passenger boats that come directly to the island. There are direct flights into North Eleuthera airport from major airports in Florida. Once arriving in Eleuthera there is a 15 minute drive to Jean's Bay Dock then a 10 minute ferry to Spanish Wells. There are many direct flights from Europe and the United States into Nassau with daily flights from various carriers into North Eleuthera. The ‘Bo Hengy’ is a vital fast ferry service that provides daily trips into Spanish Wells in the morning returning back to Nassau in the afternoon, a lovely 2 ½ hour cruise with wonderful ocean views in air-conditioned comfort or on the open air deck if you prefer.

The island boasts a modern grocery store with all the products one will find at home, along with native grown fruits and vegetables specialty jams and baked goods such as homemade bread and johnny cake. Fresh fish and crawfish are available in town. There are many snack bars and restaurants to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner, predominately serving Bahamian and American fare. The newest dining attraction is a sit down waterfront experience with a high end menu and exotic drink selection.

Spanish Wells has a very charming and inviting appeal which keeps the visitors returning. This is no tourist trap; people that visit become friends of the island and keep coming back to enjoy life as it used to be.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a family of five, Rick and Linda with daughters Kristin, Karen and Laura. We are Bahamians born and raised who love our country and truly believe it is better in the Out Islands of the Bahamas!!

Why the Owner Chose Spanish Wells, Bahamas:
Rick's father and mother hail from Eleuthera, his mother from Harbour Island and father from Current. We have been visiting Spanish Wells for the past four years and each visit gave us a stronger appreciation for the people and life in Spanish Wells especially the true spirit of community that is so rare in the world these days. When looking to invest in this special island we kept coming back to Sea Catch. A special place that we felt not only could make an excellent rental but a place we could also call our vacation home and one day our home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Close to the beach, off the main street making it so very quiet, spacious open floor plan, outside living areas, bicycles with rental, tropical foliage, cross breezes due to being on ridge, all the amenities
