About the property

Newer Build Single Story Beachfront House with Deck Overlooking Bay

Amberjack House is located right on the Northside Beach in Spanish Wells, Bahamas. If you are not familiar with the Northside Beach, it is one of the most beautiful, quiet, serene stretches of shoreline in the world. It's a sleepy beach with no crowds, white sand, and crystal clear water.

The house has three bedrooms and two baths, is 2100 square ft, and sleeps eight comfortably in beds (with 2 additional pull out beds for 10 guests). The master bedroom, living room, and dining room each have a set of french doors that open up to a large deck that overlooks the beach.

This home features wide open living spaces, vaulted ceilings, wall to wall tile floors throughout, a modern, state-of-the-art kitchen, and very nice, yet comfortable furnishings. It is fully air conditioned. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cookware and dishes for a crowd. There are four flatscreen TV's and several DVD players, one in the living room and one in each bedroom. The house was built in 2008, which is very new for Spanish Wells.

In 2016, we added a new boardwalk and beach deck from the house deck that extends directly to the edge of the beach. It's perfect for coffee in the morning, watching the kids play on the beach in the afternoon, and cocktails in the evening. It's really nice for when you want to hang out on the beach but don't feel like trekking all your stuff out into the sand. You just stroll down the boardwalk and kick back on one of our Adirondack chairs.

We also provide two Hobie Lanai kayaks and a paddle board.

What sets our house apart from other beach house rentals on Spanish Wells? The open floor plan, large covered deck, and the boardwalk to our beach side deck. The large rooms and open floor plan are unique for the island. Most of the beach fronts are older homes with tiny rooms. And very few of the newer homes have an open living room / dining room / kitchen area that opens up to a large, shaded beach deck. And the house is the only rental home that we know of on Spanish Wells that has a boardwalk that extends down to a beach side deck.

The house is located on 11th St right on the beach on the north side of the island. Note that there is a cemetery on Main Street from 10th to 11th. The cemetery is behind the house opposite the beach. It's a very pretty, very old little cemetary. It's quiet and provides extra privacy for the house. The landscaping behind our house hides it completely from view.

We spend about six weeks per year at Amberjack House. Since we spend so much time there, we've tried to make it as nice and comfortable as possible so that we can really enjoy ourselves while on vacation. Hopefully you will find our beach house as fun and relaxing as we do!

About Ryan

We (Ryan & Heidi) are from Columbus, Ohio and have two young children (Miles and Mason).

Ryan purchased this house in 2014

Why Ryan chose Bahamas

The beach of course! The floor plan is really nice too. It's great to have everything on one floor. We also really like the large, shaded deck that overlooks Northside Beach as well as our new beachside deck that is right on the beach. It's also within easy walking distance of just about everything in Spanish Wells. And finally, the fact that it is a newer build (2008) is a big plus. Many of the homes in Spanish Wells are rather old.

The large rooms and open floor plan are unique for the island. Most of the beach fronts are older homes with very small rooms. And very few of the newer homes have an open living room / dining room / kitchen area that opens up to a large beach deck.

The large deck that overlooks the beach is also rare on the island. And the house is the only rental home that we know of on the island that has a boardwalk that extends down to the edge of the beach with a deck right on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The beach, single story, location, french doors to the large shaded deck, very open floor plan, and boardwalk down to the beach deck that is right on the beach.

Most amazing vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

Amberjack is the most amazing vacation destination. It has the most perfect and stunning views of the crystal clear water. The house itself is conveniently located to several different shops, restaurants, and stores. It is very quiet and peaceful, perfect relaxation opportunities with the French door views, hammock, plentiful deck seating, and chairs for seating by the water. The paddle board is sooo much fun and lots of other water toys and rafts for floating. Outdoor hose and shower for rinsing upon return from the beach was so convenient and just the extra touch needed to make the stay perfect. Beds are super comfy and tv availability throughout the house, as well as, wifi and phone service. The couch is perfect for napping! The house is fully equipped with everything you would ever need, to include a washer and dryer onsite for laundering clothes and towels. Bring some suits and book your stay, you will not be disappointed!!

Great beach house on a great island!

  • 5 of 5

The Amber Jack House is even better in person ( Hard to believe... !!!)

The House is spotless, well equipped and on one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen! Andre the house manager was great and all the people we met were warm and very friendly. ( if you happen to run into Kendrick, be sure and say "Hi" from us!)

Spanish Wells has now become " The New Standard " of all beach vacations.

A standard that will be hard to beat!

We hope to return again and again ...

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Amberjack House with our 4 children (ages 5, 10, 14 and 15). It was perfect for us. Clean, lots of space and unbelievable views. The owner was always available and quick to answer any questions before we left and during our stay. The house has a paddle board which entertained my 10 year old for hours (he followed a stingray around for a good 45 minutes one day). There are also 2 kayaks which my teens used to paddle out to some large rocks each day. They caught tons of snapper out there. We spent a morning on the water with Bruno Underwood and it was def the highlight of our trip. He is a great guy and took us fishing, snorkeling and to see swimming pigs. Overall, fantastic trip! Memories to last a lifetime! We hope to be able to return one day.
