About the property

3 bed, 2 bath with four seater golf cart

Your dream vacation awaits you at Royal View. This cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bath rental with open loft is located on Russell Island, 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.

The newly renovated beachfront house comes with a golf cart to get around town easily. 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 the most amazing view from the deck overlooking Meeks Patch and Royal Island.

You may want to get in on a fishing excursion or a beaching experience where you can visit with the swimming pigs 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. Boat rentals are also available and we recommend that you book these in advance. Kayaks and paddleboards come with this rental so you can kayak 5 minutes away to The Sandbar a tiki bar on the beach and have a refreshing cocktail or lunch, 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.

Royal View is easy to get to with daily flights from Florida into North Eleuthera International Airport or Nassau International Airport, There is also a Bahamas Fast Ferry out of Nassau that comes into Spanish Wells daily weather permitted this service is not always reliable if they have a charter or if the weather is bad they will cancel without notice.

As always when you stay at Royal View 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 Royal View.

Beautiful property and view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property this June for a week. There were 5 adults. It was near the water and the breeze coming up from the water was amazing! Since it is a little distance to the center of Spanish Wells (the actual location is Russell Island) the golf cart came in very handy! Our favorite part was the private beach just a 2 minute drive. The snorkling was fun there and there's a little hut to put your items on and rest. Make sure to bring bug spray and a lighter :) The town just went through a bank change and so most charter boats and businessses require cash. Charters can be between 250-350 for a half day and 500-600 for a whole day. Also, they provide a free night if you stay 6 nights. It created some confusion for us and we had to find a new location for the last night but Jaime worked to help us find a place to stay and helped us transport our luggage. You'll have plenty of space for adults and having the option of cooking is wonderful!! Be sure to check out the Sandbar restaurant located before you get to the property. Thanks for the memories!

Amazing vacation at your home and cottage :)

  • 5 of 5

Jaime after the first day at your property my friends wanted to book your house again for a future visit to Spanish Wells and Russell Island, we were all very grateful for your awesome hospitality and friendliness while staying at your house, the conch salad you made for us the first day we arrived was not only a surprise but it was delicious, and then the huge pot of stew fish for breakfast our first morning was over the top, you really know how to make you guest feel right at home and loved. The breathtaking view from the deck overlooking the water was my favorite spot on the property, my friends enjoyed the kayaks that they used to go out and explore the beautiful water in front of the house and they went fishing with their rods right off the rocks.

Thank you Jaime for an amazing vacation, you have a beautiful home and we cant wait to spend another vacation there very soon.

Book this now!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for 3 weeks in Jan 2016. We picked it based on the pictures (very accurate), location, and reputation of hosts. All three were spot on! The view is, indeed, royal. The house is accommodating but dated. The beds are unbelievably comfortable and there is a nice TV (we didn't think we would use it but it was nice to unwind with it in the evenings). The location was perfect for us--secluded but only a 20 minute buggy ride to town. You have water access right out front and the rocky beach area was great for exploring--my 9 yo niece loved that. We also enjoyed the kayaks. There is a private sand beach a 10 min walk from the house or the public pink sand beach which was almost empty was a 20 min ride. We spent most of our time at the pink sand beach as the water was the warmest there. A short walk from the house is the Sand Bar which has great food. Jamie and Shannon were unbelievable hosts. They went out or their way to accommodate all of our requests. This included installing a baby gate on the steps. When Shannon saw that my niece forgot her beach toys, he brought some over. They also brought us fresh fruit and avocados from their trees----really delicious!

Cottage with ocean view and private access to beach!

  • 4 of 5

Jamie was a wonderful host, picking us up at the dock and delivering us directly to the house. We all were able to have our own rooms and had about a 7-minute walk to a private beach. In addition to the private beach, we were about 2 miles from the public beach, which was usually almost deserted leaving us with 2 essentially private beaches! There are kayaks to use to get out on the water in front of the house and a large porch for evening meals. All in all, it was exactly what we needed for a relaxing and restful trip!
