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.

Best beach vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was amazing! The owner is amazingly helpful and very prompt with responding to all the questions I had leading up to our trip. Went out of his way to find us a way of transportation back to the main island when we found out the ferry wouldn’t be able to get us there in time. The house was awesome! Equipped with literally EVERYTHING you need while you’re there. The beach was so beautiful!!! Everyday we would be out there going for a walk or playing on the beach and it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Everyone had a blast and we hope to go back in the future!

Amberjack House Spanish Wells

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a beach vacation. The owners have thought of everything and anything you could possibly wish for. If you cook, it is all there, if you don’t want to, the Sand Bar restaurant is great. We can highly recommend Amberjack House, it is on the worlds best beach👍?

the absolute BEST vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

5 Stars is not enough for this house!!!! If you need to get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is the place. I have been to Tulum & Riviera Maya in Mexico, Jamaica, St. John USVI, Jost Van Dyke BVI and I found PARADISE in Spanish Wells. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed from towels, clean bed sheets, toilet paper, paper towels, filtered water, menus, kayaks, flotation devices, laundry detergent, bar soap and even a phone to call my elder mother back home in The States. The view was amazing and being able to walk out onto the deck to view the sunrise and sunset was a bonus! It seems it is kinda a "pay it forward" type home.........there were food, drink and liquor (in date) left from previous vacationers and we used some of it. We also left items for the next people. I seriously can not say enough about the island, everyone was so welcoming, helpful and nice. I can not wait to come back, see you soon Spanish Wells!!!!!!!

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.
