Photos and Description of this Spanish Wells holiday house

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

The Bahamas Beach House is situated on the best part of the beautiful pink powder sand beach of Spanish Wells, Bahamas with stunning waterfront views of inviting turquoise waters. Stroll one of the most scenic 2 1/2 mile stretches of beach in the Bahamas while enjoying a variety of beach activities. The house comes fully furnished. There are two bedrooms upstairs and a queen sofa bed in the downstairs den. The backyard of the house offers a safe grassed area and sits right on the beach. There is a gas barbecue and patio furniture if you would like to grill your fresh catch and dine outdoors. We provide a double sea kayak for exploring the waters outfront. There are three well-stocked grocery stores within walking distance. You may also buy lobster locally. Boats are available to rent. You may rent a golf cart to tour the island and visit native quilt makers and straw vendors.

Spanish Wells is a charming and peaceful island where you will escape the throngs of tourists and commercialism. It is not unusual to have miles of stretches of beach to yourself. The locals take pride in their island, whose economy is based on a thriving lobster industry. While you may just want to relax with a book and look out over the stunning view from your beach front, there are many things to do. The Bahamas Beach House is located near great bone fishing flats. You can fly fish or enjoy swimming or shelling on the beach. You will also find terrific reef fishing and snorkeling on the world famous Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef located just a 1/4 mile offshore. There are local fishing and snorkeling guides available or you may rent your own boat for fishing, kayaking and snorkeling excursions. You can explore local uninhabited beaches or try your luck at spear fishing for lobster. A short walk will take you to restaurants serving local delights such as lobster, grouper, etc.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This little place was just amazing! The location was perfection for a family who didn't know much about the island. Everything was so accessible. The cottage itself is charming, clean and gave us that beach feel we were hoping for. It had everything you needed to enjoy a stay away from home. The beach chairs and kayak were a huge hit and the outdoor patio area was private and cozy....(shared with the small adorable anole lizards). The beach out front is a worldly phenomenon...... Stretching white sand beaches and being able to walk out hundreds of feet before it even passes your knees! We enjoyed Buddas and their wonderful staff. The Shipyard Restaurant was our favorite for the view and the food quality. We saw a white tip reef shark here on our last night. Also, The state park is a must visit!

Lastly, my husband had an amazing fishing adventure with Deeks Fishing tour! They caught 12 yellowfin Tuna, We had so much tune we had to give some to our neighbors! My 10 year old son and I went Snorkeling with Captain Ryan Neilly off of Devils was a little intimidating but I was impressed with all of the live coral and fish life here. Captain Ryan was very attentive and a great person to show the kids the cool features of the island.

One factor to mention: The bedrooms are really one big one separated by curtains so if you have a snorer in the might want ear plugs!

Our care taker Johnny was kind, attentive and made sure to arrange our travel to and from the island which was was seamless both ways. We loved our time here! We will definitely be back to this beach house!

Charming cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed with another couple for a week. It was our second time to Spanish Wells, our friends' first--and they fell in love with it, as we had the year before. Though the island is becoming slightly more touristy (we counted 25 people all day on the beach!), it still retains its small-town feel. The house has a well-equipped kitchen and grill, which were great for cooking at home. You have to improvise some, based on what's in stock at the Food Fair, but the bounty of fish and lobster and conch helps balance out whatever else you might wish you had. The house is rustically charming, nicely decorated, and just steps from the beach, which can't be beat. It was soothing to go to sleep to the sound of crashing surf (in the spring, the winds are up and the windows were open). We knew in advance that it might not be the most private for two couples, but we worked it out. Having the kayak was great--we explored Eleuthera around Ridley's Head and also Russell Island. Property manager Johnny Underwood is a great resource, and you undoubtedly will meet other people on the island who will happily help you find a boat, go snorkeling, buy lobster or fish, figure out when fresh produce is coming in, or enthusiastically share their love of their unique place in Bahamian history and culture.

Would go back in a heartbeat.

My wife and I honeymooned for a week at Spanish Wells and stayed at this well cared for villa. The island is primarily made up of working people who make their living in commercial fishing and other non tourist related jobs. As a result, Wells has very few restaurants and tourist shops which makes for quieter beaches and very friendly people who aren't trying to sell you something. We rented a boat from Johnny, the property manager, and got away from the island for some sight seeing, swimming and fishing with NOBODY else around us. I highly recommend to those looking for a low key vacation.

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our Spring Break in this wonderful house on the beach. Everything was perfect, clean and exactly what we needed for a restful and exciting week in the Bahamas. Johnny was the best host and a wonderful gentleman. We had such a great time in Spanish Wells we are going back next Spring and bringing our adult children and grandchildren.

the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I rented this villa for 10 days and after the second day we both decided we were definitely coming back. The people are great, the island is small, the beaches beautiful, the weather fantastic.....all the amenities you need at the villa. I highly recommend this for people who want a relaxing quiet vacation. The island is a dry island but you can bring your liquor to the island it is just not sold there.....I give this a five star....
