Why Jody Pinder chose Spanish Wells

My wife and I have lived in this area our entire lives and always wanted to own a beach property. This finally became a reality in 2007.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is located very close to all the shops and restaurants yet is of the beaten path and out of the hustle and bustle of daily life on the Island. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Big house, Small island!

  • 5 of 5

First, the house is beautiful! It is in a perfect location with a great beach in the backyard. Jody and Tara were super nice and helped with everything we needed. They set up the transportation to/from the house to the dock (for the ferry). The house came with everything you would need to prepare your own meals. They even have a cabinet full of spices to use. The golf cart was an added plus and we also rented one from Harbourside rentals. The island is a perfect size, where you can drive around the whole thing in about 30 minutes. The grocery store was a few minute drive and had a good selection. The 3 couples thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and roominess of the home. The three bedrooms upstairs had their own bathroom with shower or bath. There is a washer and dryer which helps out tremendously so you don't have to pack a lot. My wife said to mention there was a blow dryer. Buddha's liquor store and the restaurant was awesome. A case of beer was around $40-55 and a bottle of vodka was $25-40. The food was great, especially the conch fritters! Sandbar restaurant on Russel Island had the best food and drink prices, in my opinion. The conch tacos and the grouper tacos were absolutely amazing. Overall the people on the island were friendly and willing to help with directions. I would highly recommend this house and island! I will definitely come and stay here again, even though I lost my wallet here......Hopefully sooner than later! An added plus is Eleuthera airport, where you can drink at the bar across the street while waiting for your plane. Thanks again Jody and Tara for a great vacation spot and your hospitality.

Seaside gem

  • 5 of 5

Jody and Tera's beachfront cottage provides the perfect getaway: they're located steps from a powdery-sand beach with stunning views that's great for both swimming and fishing. Their beautiful house also comes with everything you need: golf carts to get around town; kayaks, paddle boards and a sailboat to navigate offshore; a grill and fully equipped kitchen; and three big bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and a fourth sleeping nook. Jody and Tera are also gracious hosts who can get whatever you need, whether its stone crab for dinner or a day exploring the islands and flats around Spanish Wells. We can't wait to go back.

Summer Sunset Beach Cottage the BEST !

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 adults stayed at Summer Sunset for the first 4 days of our weeks vacation as it was previously booked for our last 3 days. I wish we could have stayed here the entire week. It was a tremendous stay with the best of accommodations. Jody and Tara would do anything for you and are the greatest hosts. They are genuine caring people. Providing a golf cart for 4 is such an added perk. We 3 couples were very comfortable and a 4th couple would have been accommodated as well if needed as we did not use the 4th bedroom. Location was the best. Right on the Beach with great views. This is usually our St. Martin week with family we only see once or twice a year but due to the hurricane there Spanish Wells and Summer Sunset was a fabulous substitute and a wonderful fun adventure. Do not hesitate to book this comfortable house !

I can't imagine it could get better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from our 2nd vacation to Spanish Wells and our 2nd time renting with the Pinder Family. We can't imagine we would be able to find better hosts or accommodations anywhere else so we wont bother trying, everything was great! The house is immaculate and stocked with more comforts of home than anticipated, there was ample space for all 10 of the members of our family/friends and to top it all off the property owners are beyond warm and friendly. We travel with our children, one of which is profoundly disabled and Tara and Jody will do whatever they can to make sure everyones needs are met as well as go above and beyond what any other homeowner would be expected to do. This year my youngest son had his 3rd Birthday in Spanish Wells and Tara surprised us with special ordering and delivering a birthday cake made just for him to help us celebrate so far from home. It was quite literally the icing on our vacation cake!!

I do not have one single negative thing to say about the home, the property or the property owners. We have enjoyed both their houses on separate vacations, we have had a fantastic time using their charter service, Cap't Kid & Son, and we have also benefited greatly from their vast knowledge of all things Spanish Wells and their willingness to be so helpful and open. We are already looking forward to returning next year, if not sooner.

Exceeded Expectations! July 15-22, 2017

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about the house and the owners of the house. There were 5 of us in the house so we could all have plenty of room. The house is immaculate. It was spotless when we arrived, and there was a wonderful pie waiting for us. The house had everything that we needed, and more. The kitchen had plenty of silverware, dishes, pot, and pans. There is bottled water there for drinking. Walk right out the back door and down a little path and there is the beach, hammock, chairs, kayaks, paddle board, floats, etc. It is all so clean and in great shape for use. The beach is wonderful and it was fun to watch the tide come and go and see what turns up on the beach. It is different every day. The house is so comfortable, the furniture is top notch and in excellent shape. The beds/linens are all so comfy. The bathrooms are clean and well stocked with towels, hand towels, and washrags. There is also a washer and dryer, because who doesn't love doing laundry while on vacation??? The location of the house is excellent and very well planned. It is off the main roads but so close to the main part of town and the stores, shops, restaurants, etc. We were only about 3 minutes from the grocery store, liquor store, and a bakery! The house comes with a golf cart, which is such a great addition. Just hop in and go where you need! The owners of the house, Jody and Tara Pinder, are so wonderful. They know everything about the island and are so willing to help out with directions and recommendations. Spanish Wells is an amazing place to visit; so safe. We never locked the doors of the house. I never worried about letting my kids go off on their own. (They are 13 and 15) Everyone we encountered on the island was so very friendly and welcoming, willing to visit and share information about the island. No one seemed irritated by the fact that we were tourists. I cannot say enough good things about the house, the Pinders, and the island. It was an amazing week, every day was new and different, and we never ran out of things to do. Thank you again, Jody and Tara Pinder. We will be back!!!

Awesome Location And Property

  • 5 of 5

You can't miss with this property! The location is outstanding, the house is well maintained, and Jody and Tara are the best hosts on the island. You'll feel at home the moment you arrive, the view will amaze you every morning. We've stayed in the house several times and have never been disappointed. This trip we were able to be there for 3 weeks and loved every minute of our time! Ask questions, meet the local people, visit the restaurants, or just go to the grocery and cook for yourself. You will not be disappointed! And don't miss out on Capt. Kid and Sons. Can't wait for the next trip.

The house is located right on the north side of the island on the most beautiful fine white sand beach that you have ever seen.

The island is the most beautiful, safest and well maintained Island in the bahamas.

You will find the people to be friendly and helpful.

Free golf cart, 2 kayaks and 1 Paddle Board are included with the rental.

There are great supply stores where you can find anything you need.

The fishing is some of the best in the World. You can bone fish, reef fish or deep sea fish, all are great.

Snorkeling is incredible, with the clearest most beautiful water you have ever seen.

The modern day Bahamas was born in this area when the first European Settlers ship wrecked here around 1640 at a place known as Preachers Cave. Learning about the history of this area is fascinating.
