CHARMING BAHAMIAN COTTAGE, TURQUOISE LAGOON AND PINK SANDY BEACH

Spanish Wells Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 7, in front of a wonderful pink sand beach

Pink Sands Beach Cottage is a very beautiful new beach cottage with a direct access to a breathtaking pink sandy beach. Most of the times you will be alone, and if it gets crowded, you may have two to six people around ... 2.5 miles of stunning beach. On this part of this beach, at low tide, the ocean is a magnificent turquoise lagoon.

The cottage is ideally situated. Everything is within walking distance: supermarket, bakery, restaurant, souvenir shop, bank, ATM machine, doctor, pharmacy,...

Our caretakers will kindly pick you up at the harbour and drive you to the cottage.

This old-fashioned looking cottage gives visitors to Spanish Wells a real taste of island living. Located on quiet Saint George's Cay, this heaven is the perfect place for relaxation, for honeymooners, a romantic getaway, a quiet family vacation or if you just want to get away from the world for a while.

Spanish Wells, a prosperous island: Spanish Wells is considered one of the most quaint, clean, and prosperous islands in the Bahamas. It offers a rich history and old world and out island charm, and, yet, is very civilized. Spanish Wells is the envy of Eleuthera, The Bahamas, and even the region. It is part of the well known Eleuthera island.

The population is predominantly white native Bahamians, many of which are descendants of the first British settlers from the 1600's or Loyalists from the 1700's. People speak English, with a British accent. Spanish Wells is not a 'touristy' island.

Spanish Wells is prosperous, clean, safe, and beautiful. Spanish Wells is a neat and clean little town with most homes sporting a fresh coat of pastel paint, a real island getaway. Spanish Wells is reminiscent of an idyllic Cape Cod fishing village with swaying coconut palm trees and bright bougainvillea as background.

Spanish Wells offers everything you need: Spanish Wells has beautiful pink and white sand beaches, and water so clear that you can see your shadow on the bottom. Stretching from Spanish Wells to the northeast tip of mainland Eleuthera is a beautiful barrier reef called the Devil's Backbone which is inhabited with an abundance of marine life. This area is fantastic for snorkelers, and fishermen usually find that grouper and snapper are plentiful in this area. One mile off shore, there's great sport fishing. There's world-class bone fishing on the flats surrounding the island. One can walk around the island, wade for sand dollars on the North beach, purchase the fresh catch of the day from local fishermen, and browse the centuries-old village.

Spanish Wells offers 3 supermarkets, a bakery, 6 restaurants or take away (which serve native Bahamian and American dishes at reasonable prices), a well stocked liquor store (at Jean's bay, on main land), a medical clinic, a museum, 4 variety stores; you can purchase fresh fish, lobster!

Ideal temperatures all year round: Winter temperatures are generally in the 70's during the day and drop to the 60's at night. Summer daytime temperatures are generally in the 80's and drop to the 70's at night.

Fantastic cottage, owners and caretakers

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 30, 2014

4 adults and 2 children and there was still plenty of room to move around in this beautiful cottage. It is obvious that the owners take pride in it and their attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Nadine is a very gracious owner and the caretaker, Toni, equally so.

We rented a cart to get around a couple of days and explore but in reality, it certainly is not required. Grocery, bank, ice cream, restaurants, beach, etc. all within easy walking distance.

When we return to Spanish Wells, it will not be in any other accommodations but this one. Thank you!

A truly memorable holiday

  • Submitted: Feb 16, 2014

We want to thank you for such wonderful accommodations, we had a marvelous holiday. In fact, my kids said that it was the BEST holiday we have ever been on. We think the cottage was in a perfect location, we met the friendliest people and we really did have a blessed Christmas holiday. We will definitely be going back to Spanish wells. We felt safe and the locals were very kind and generous.

We went out on the Spanish Wells Ocean Safari, with James and that was just like being in National Geographic. We went Snorkeling, and we went fishing for some lobster and spearfishing. What a truly memorable holiday.

Darryl and Toni were always so kind, and I was thankful that they were at the fast ferry to get us. It made the arrival very smooth!

Thank you so very much for the use of you cottage and we hope to stay there again soon. All the best in 2014!!! May you be filled with health and happiness!!

Truly relaxing

  • Submitted: Feb 2, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
We had a wonderful time. It was truly relaxing and we walked the beach every day. I look forward to returning sooner than later. We met some lovely folks at People's Church and were blessed by such great teaching there. Between excellent food, weather, new friends and lovely accomodation, we had an amazing time. And my husband was totally surprised - blown away by it all. He really didn't believe it until we arrived in the Bahamas! Thanks again.

Perfect location on charming Spanish Wells

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Our family of five had a fantastic stay at the Pink Sands Cottage. It was perfectly located with the beach being a short walk and the grocery store being right by, as well.

The caretakers really went the extra mile in all they did; helping us before we even asked! Both the caretakers and the locals were very friendly and went out of their way to help anyone.

We especially loved the outdoor shower, Bahamian island books in the cottage, bicycles, and the porch! We loved eating at Norma's and The Gap! We also rented a boat and golf cart for our stay, which made it very convenient to venture out! Thank you for a great place to stay and we look forward to returning to the island soon!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your appreciation. We are delighted to hear that our guests have enjoyed our cottage. We try to make your vacation an unforgettable one!
