The Sea Star cottage is paradise in the carribean. We booked this cottage looking for quiet, beautiful beaches, rest and relaxation - and it did not dissapoint. Lorraine was extremely helpful from beginning to end, from arranging our airport transfers, our boat rental and even finding gas for us when we didn't realize we couldn't refuel the boat on Sundays. If you are looking for luxury, pampering or resort amenities, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for comfortable accommodations, friendly locals and stunning beaches with turquoise waters and pink sand then you will love Spanish Wells. The cottage comes with the basics that you need to cook or grill, and your best bet is to bring non perishable items from home. The air conditioning is great to have, but the evenings are cool enough to just open the windows and enjoy the breeze. The washer and dryer are very handy to have too. Most importantly SeaStar is ideally situated - a 3 minute walk to the beach and less than 10 to the boat dock. Everywhere else on the island is easily and quickly reachable with the bicycles provided. (We did not rent the golf carts that everyone on the island uses and didn't regret it. But for the less athletically inclined the carts DO look like a lot of fun!) We absolutely loved our boat rental and even extended it to a fourth day. The cottage comes with a small cooler and the highlight of our trip was packing up lunch and some beers and finding new beautiful deserted beaches to spend the day swimming, reading and snorkeling. The reefs around north Eluthera are incredible and filled with an abundance of sea life. Our visit to Spanish Wells was our favorite part of the Bahamas and we loved our little cottage. We definitely plan to return someday, and are hesitant to tell others about this little known island. All in all, Sea Star and Spanish Wells was the perfect vacation and definitely the best Caribbean trip we've ever had!
