We wanted to say thanks for the rental of your beautiful house. We had a great time there, and the house is perfect in all respects. When I asked our kids the other day what the best part of the trip was -- Atlantis or Spanish Wells -- they said Spanish Wells and your house! They loved the beach and exploring the grounds of the house every day. We explored the island and bays quite a bit, and also spent a day driving Eleuthera, and we had great times. By the way, Johnny and his wife are two of the most courteous, helpful people in the world, as you have been as well.
I spent some time at Splendido last summer and I enjoyed it so much I decided to return at the end of December. The island was just as I remember it although the weather was a bit cooler, but never the less pleasant. The locals really know how to bring in the New Year! The night sky was filled with fireworks on New Year's eve and on January 1st! The water was, as always, refreshing and the atmosphere calming. It made for another unforgettable experience and a great welcome to 2011.
We just returned from a wonderful 4 day getaway at Splendido and Spanish Wells. This is one of our many trips to Spanish Wells and everyone in the family had a great time. The kids enjoyed playing on the beach in front of the house and the adults enjoyed lounging around in the hammocks or taking a bike ride around the island. Although you can not swim in front of the house, as it is very shallow, all you have to do is take a 2 minute walk down the beach. A golf cart is a must, which Johnny and Nancy can arrange along with anything else you may need.
The description on the site is spot on. The house is clean, large and very comfortable with every amenity you can imagine. The separate bedrooms and living areas allows for every person to do what they feel like without getting in anyone’s way. Should you decide to invite a few new found friends over for a BBQ, there is enough room for at least 15 persons. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher and trash compactor. If you don’t feel like cooking, venture down the street to one of the few but good restaurants or pick up a home made lunch from the ladies outside the supermarket.
Thanks to Alex for your wonderful house and being available if needed. I know we will be back soon.
We have just spent a glorious week at Splendido and have had a wonderful time. The house is well laid out and great for families. The beach on the doorstep is lovely and perfect for little ones who don't need to go too far into the water. The holiday is perfect for those wanting to get away from it all.
Be prepared to cook rather than explore lots of new restaurants and take fresh milk with you if you have little ones as it seems to be in short supply on the island.
The supermarket is very well stocked compared to other places we have been to in the area with a great selection of fresh meats, fruits and veg. Make sure you meet Chantal who sells home made food on the street a few blocks up the road from the house - her food is wonderful and tasty and saves cooking every night!
Nancy was very helpful and the golf cart is essential for buzzing about even though the island is tiny.
The listing for the house is pretty accurate although the BBQ and Bikes were in a garage that we couldn't access - ask at the time of booking.
Overall a pretty special week and we will hopefully be back again next year.
Thanks to Alex for being so helpful and always contactable if needed.
We stayed in August and had a great time.As advertised,Saw very few tourists, and even local men were gone because it was fishing season.
The house is as stated,except you really can't swim right in front of the house.You need to go up a few blocks [3-5min] to find a nice sandy beach.The fising flats are right in front of the house and easily accesible.
It's best to get a golf cart from Johhny the care taker...makes the small island even smaller.If you need night life to enjoy your vacation this island is NOT for you.
I spent two weeks at Splendido and I can attest to the unique feel of
the Spanish Wells and the tranquility of the property. Unlike most
other islands in the Bahamas, the Wells do not thrive on tourism.
This island is void of resorts and tourist filled boutiques. In my
opinion, this makes the stay even more relaxing because you can truly
unwind and enjoy the Sigilian culture without the bustling droves of
tourists. The property itself is naturally gorgeous with tall coconut
tress and plants everywhere. The style of the house is reminiscent of
a colonial plantation house with its large front patio and full length
balcony. I spent ample time on the patio in the evenings watching the
sun set just to my left. In the day when the sun is highest you can
lounge right in the sand or on the sunny part of the patio. If you're
seeking shade, just scoot back a few feet towards the house and you'll
be shaded by the balcony. If you would rather lounge inside, the
house maintains a nice cool temperature at all hours of the day.
There is a large living room with a love-seat and a comfortable couch
to nap on. If you need to tend to some business while on vacation
there is a desktop in the office with a good connection and Skype is
preloaded. Around dinnertime, people tended to migrate to the kitchen
where there is ample seating around an island and a breakfast nook in
the corner. Cooking in this kitchen is very comfortable because it is
so spacious. I never once had to say "excuse me" to get from one side
of the counter to the other because there is so much room. The three
bed and three bath layout of this house provides enough space for
people to live comfortably and sleep easy. The concrete construction
makes the rooms nearly soundproof so people can sleep while others are
still carrying on. The property is comfortable, but while visiting I
would encourage you to get out and explore the beauty of the island.
Spanish Wells is a small island northwest of the Bahamas longest island Eleuthera. The island is a small community that survives mostly on their lobster fishing industry. The island is 2 miles long and 1/4 mile wide at is widest part. The people there are the friendliest to be found out of any destination. There are no bars on the island and 3 churches. Fishing, snorkeling, water skiing, cycling, beach walking, diving, and sun tanning are all fun activities. Harbor Island is also a popular day destination for visitors that offers shopping, dining, and beautiful beaches. The island of Eleuthera also offers a variety of towns and a 110 miles of island to cruise in one of the islands car rentals. The closest airport is located on the island of Eleuthera, North Eleuthera MYEH, and from there it is a 15 minute cab ride to the government ferry which takes you over to Spanish Wells. Arriving there is as simple as a 1 hour flight from Ft. Lauderdale or Miami, FL.
