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 Spanish Wells

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.

Gorgeous view, quiet spot & immaculate home

  • 5 of 5

First of all, one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen! We visited early in the season and might have run into 8 people on the beach. The house was absolutely perfect!! Everything was very clean, easy access to amenities and the host provided every possible piece of information needed. Pinder's Taxi was fantastic, give them a call and they will work around your schedule as we did not arrive or depart on an airline. Definitely rent a golf cart. Island is small and I thought we could walk everywhere but to transport luggage, get groceries or venture on to Russell Island to eat at the Sandbar you will need some wheels. Everyone was VERY friendly!!! I never felt unsafe at any time. The host was very responsive to any question or concern and the property did not disappoint in any way. Hoping to make it back again! Do NOT miss the lobster quesadillas at the Anchor, they were fantastic! Other musts: conch tacos at the Sandbar, the dizzy Budda drink at Budda's Bar, Ponderosa Gift Shop for unique souvenirs.

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Spanish Wells staying at the Amberjack House! We had a fantastic trip! The house was perfect, clean, well stocked with amenities, and on the best beach we have ever seen!!! The ocean and beach is as lovely as the pictures show! We had our 20 month old with us and she loved being able to run and run on the beach as no one else was around! It was so wonderful we are already talking about when we can go back! Ryan and Andre are super helpful with information and worked hard to alleviate any of our concerns! We can't recommend this house enough!

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 ...
