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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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!!

Great place to stay! Clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this cottage very much. It is well equipped and in a great location. We took the bikes over to Eleuthera by ferry and rode for an afternoon. Go see Preacher's Cave, it's worth the ride. By the way, Andrea's at Harbor Side has a few bikes for rent. No one seemed to know this so I am just passing that on. Take a charter trip with Capt. Ryan Nielly. We had a great day of spearing with him and his sons.
We would definitely rent this cottage again if we were returning to Spanish Wells. It is everything it is described to be. You won't be disappointed.

Charming beach cottage perfectly located in SW

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our time in Spanish Wells and we enjoyed our accommodations equally as much. The house is well equipped and comfortable. Very clean and located conveniently to the grocery store and restaurants. We used the bicycles one day and took them over by ferry to Eleuthera. There is plenty of open road to ride on without much traffic. Go see Preacher's Cave. It's worth the ride. Also Andrea's at Harbor Side has bikes for rent. No one seemed to know this when we asked around for a bike rental place so I am passing it on. We took a charter with Captain Ryan Nielly and speared a lot of fish. Great fun!
The outside shower is great for washing off sand and for rinsing dive equipment.
I would absolutely recommend this cottage as a place to stay. We usually stay on our boat but if we were looking to rent again, PSC would be our first choice. Wonderful experience, all around.

Wonderful centrally located cottage in SW!

Hello Nadine. Thank you for sharing your wonderful cottage with me and my two kids; we thoroughly enjoyed it, and the central location near the beach and stores was absolutely perfect for us. In addition, your manager Toni Pinder was a great help to us too. We vacation quite a bit in Spanish Wells and Pink Sands Cottage is now our favorite rental home there; we’ll definitely want to stay at PSC again during future return trips to Spanish Wells!
