Everything we hoped it would be!!

Dear Jaime and Shennon,

First of all, the place is absolutely everything we knew it would be. Absolutely perfect for us. It was perfect for my elderly parents as well, because it was just so beautiful, it didn’t matter that they didn’t have a lot of energy to do other activities. They loved just sitting and swimming right there. We loved cooking in, and having wine and Dark and Stormy’s on the deck. The sound of the water at night was just mesmerizing. We slept great every night, and back home now away from the sea, I’m really missing those sounds!

The beauty of the water was something so incredible...we just reveled in it every day. Our earth is such a lovely home! There is such beauty if you know where to look. And your little island was just the place. Not just for the beauty, but on every level. I’d love to pack right up and move there! Everybody was so friendly, anytime it seemed we were in trouble (like finding ourselves short on gas on a holiday, or running out of Mums favorite wine after the liquor store had closed), there was somebody there to bail us out. We can’t forget all the help you were to us with the golf carts. There was never a moment that we needed something that you weren’t right there for us.

And the food! We loved every bite of the conch dish you made for was so unexpected, so sweet of you, and so absolutely delicious! But of course what really went way beyond the call of duty was how you stepped up to the plate for us when our flight was canceled. We just can’t get over your kindness, picking us up, letting us come back to the house, and then not even charging us, after it made work for you. True kindness is becoming more and more rare in this world, and we were so touched, all of us, and so appreciative. All in all, we can’t begin to express what a wonderful experience we had at Waters’ Edge, and we hope that we will be able to find a vacancy again not so very long from now. I have already passed the information and your website to friends who are interested.

We left a piece of our hearts there on your island, in your little cottage, so of course we must come back!

With Sincere Affection and Thanks,

Bruce and Nancy

Waters Edge ... A trip to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. House on the water with waves breaking under the deck ... the constant breeze off the water ... birds diving into the water for fish ... fishermen casting their nets in the early morning ... the late afternoon rainbow in the east . Can't wait to do it all over again. I'll be thinking about the public beach all year ... two miles of sandy beach with 4 people on the entire length.

Just Perfect!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is neat and clean, well equipped, with enough room for two couples to be comfortable in. We stayed three weeks and will definitely be returning. The ocean in front of the cottage is spectacular. The water is warm (by Canadian standards) and very clear, great for swimming and snorkelling. We took rubber water shoes with us and they were invaluable for walking in the water. One suggestion - take insect repellent to combat the nocanseeums which are pervasive throughout the Bahamas. There are several good restaurants on the island. We liked the Sandbar the best. All in all it is a great place to vacation.

We spent a week in this cottage and loved it ! Had everything and more that we needed to have a quiet, secluded week. Great snorkeling . Wonderful hosts. Arrangements of pick up at the airport and dock were perfect.

Thanks Shennon and Jaime.

An absolute escape!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days at Water's Edge- Spanish wells is a hidden gem! Shennon and Jaime have a wonderful property, which is secluded enough so that you feel privacy, but is accessible to everything within 10 minutes. The view is BEYOND beautiful!! They have created the perfect get away home, with all the finer details. Nothing has been forgotten. The home is very cozy, and clean. Shennon and Jaime are simply lovely. They looked out for our needs while we were there, and had the house stocked with essentials so we didn't have to go without.

I would recommend this property highly to anyone, and can't wait to go back. We love Spanish Wells, and feel so psyched to have found this beautiful paradise!!

amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Water's edge in Russell Island, with our 3 kids. the house is so close to the water that from our bed we were falling asleep while listening to the ocean. we had access to the private beach that is at the end of Russell island and that remains our favorite beach ever! from the house, in 2 minutes with kayaks we were on the reef...starfishes, corals and sea turtles...the nature is right there, ready to amaze you! the Island is lovely, people are so nice and always ready to help, very friendly. our kids found friends and had a wonderful time exploring right in front of the cottage and jumping from the bridge. the house is in a wonderful position, a little away from Spanish Wells, just 10 minutes by golf car, 2 minutes from the Sandbar, a restaurant right on the beach and 5 minutes from Mama's cafe' where Mrs. Lidia had always our nespresso coffee ready and wonderful breakfast for our kids. the house is complete with everything possible, we cooked many times and the mattresses are very comfortable. The owners, Jaime and Shennon, were so nice and helpful! our luggage was lost by the airplane company and they gave us their snorkeling gears and took care of everything for us so that the suitcase arrived right away the day after but we could enjoy our first day on the island anyway. they also gave us a cooler when we rented a boat...supernice. we loved it, we are back since 3 days and we already miss it...and we'll be back next year! Thank you, Jaime and Shennon!!!
