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. There is also free wifi with signal boosters so that you can get a wifi signal throughout the house and on the beach.
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.
To get to Spanish Wells from the US, you want to fly to the North Eleuthera airport (ELH). There are direct flights from Atlanta, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Nassau. The house is about 30 minutes from the airport via taxi and water taxi.
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!

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. For more details about Spanish Wells and our house, please visit our house website at amberjackhouse dot com.

Spanish Wells is a beautiful Island. the beaches are phenomenal.
The house is perfectly situated in proximity to the beach and town. Completely outfitted to meet your needs. Comfortable and clean.
The most beautiful beach on the planet!
House was amazing, beach was gorgeous and the island friendly and clean!
Wonderful relaxing getaway place.
We thoroughly enjoyed this house and all of the amenities offered therein. So relaxing. The view, Oh my goodness...the pictures do not do it justice. This is a must visit location. The only thing that I would recommend is to install large mirrors in the extra bedrooms. We were six adults and it was hard to finish getting ready to go out (to diner) in the bedrooms while someone else was showering without mirrors. The master suite was exceptional and the beds, oh so comfortable! April, 2018
Home was great, owner was great, locals are great, a perfect spot to unwind.
Beautiful and relaxing
We loved the deck by the beach. The bicycles provided worked fine, and one was a super cute Panama Jack. Kayaks were fun to use. The location is very nice, next to nice neighbors, quiet, yet easy access to restaurants and shops. Beds were very comfy.
I found Paradise!
So glad I found this place on VRBO. Didn’t know anything about Spanish Wells but this was one of the best vacations I ever taken.
I traveled with my 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren ages 10 and 13 and we all loved it there.
House was perfect. All rooms very spacious and nicely furnished. Kitchen well equipped for about anything you might want to cook. Large covered porch with dining table was so nice for outdoor eating or if we wanted to get out of the sun for awhile but still stay outside.
Beautiful views of ocean. Nice, clean, white, soft sandy beach. Shallow for a long way out. At low tide, we walked out for what seemed a mile. At the end of wooden walkway to beach there is nice big platform for lounging. Kids loved having the paddle board and kayaks. There were also two bicycles available.
Colors of the crystal clear water are impossible to describe. We took many photos but they really don’t do colors justice.
Beds were very comfortable and lots of towels provided.
Nice location, convenient to everything.
We enjoyed ice cream almost every night at Papa Scoops. Just drive up to line in your golf cart and order at front of line. You’ll be served right in your cart. Highly recommend!
We ate at several restaurants on the island and all were very good.
We also did two half-day tours with Captain Kid and Son excursions and throughly enjoyed them. We used Pinder’s Taxi and Ferry service to get to/from North Eleuthera. They were very prompt and always nice to work with. We arrived kind of late on Sat. night and ferry driver even called his sister who runs a small grocery store right at the dock and asked her to stay open for us so we could pick up a few groceries that night.
Be aware that this is not your typical resort area. But that is exactly what we loved about it. No fast food franchises, big hotels or large stores. Some restaurants are open on Sundays but lots of places are closed then.
Such a peaceful, beautiful place.
