About the Property

2 bed, 2 bath cozy cottage minutes away from the beach

Your dream vacation awaits you at Driftwood Cottage. This cozy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom rental is located on 18th Street, Spanish Wells. Spanish Wells is an island community located in The Bahamas. It is very close to the much larger island of Eleuthera, and is about 48 miles from the country's capital city of Nassau. Our waters glisten from the bright, warm rays of the sun. These waters are crucial to the mainstay of the island, lobster fishing, but they are also one of the factors that lure visitors to our shore. Our mile long beach is just minutes away from the cottage and will seem like your own as it is never crowded, this is the perfect place for your vacation getaway.

This rental is equipped with Cable TV and High Speed Internet. You can keep up to date with family and news from back home. Dine at one of the restaurants in Spanish Wells or be your own chef, with a full kitchen the choice is yours. You also have the convenience of a full laundry right in the cottage. Our back yard has native fruits trees including mangoes, avocados, limes as well as sour oranges (which is essential for making the perfect conch salad).

You may want to get in on a fishing excursion or a beaching experience at one of our nearby islands which we will be glad to arrange for you. Also available are day trips to Harbour Island and Eleuthera. We offer a tour of "A day on Eleuthera", which includes Preachers Cave, Glass Window Bridge, Pineapple Fields, Leon Levy Preserve, Hatchet Bay Caves and Queens Bath. Golf cart rentals can also be arranged easily for you. Boat rentals are also available and we recommend that you book these in advance. Kayak rentals are also available. Spanish Wells is known as the fishing capital of the Bahamas. The fishing snorkeling and diving in the area is second to none. Spanish Wells is also considered one of the safest, cleanest, and most pristine areas of the Bahamas. The locals are very friendly people who take pride in their community, heritage and work.

Driftwood Cottage is easy to get to with daily flights from Florida into North Eleuthera or Nassau International Airport, flight time is approximately 1hr. 15 mins. From Miami / Fort Lauderdale to North Eleuthera or 15 minutes from Nassau to North Eleuthera

As always when you stay at Driftwood Cottage we are always available for any questions you may have about the island of Spanish Wells and we are there to help. We look forward to hosting your next vacation getaway at Driftwood Cottage.
