A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
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!

Owner's Response: Happy to hear that you had a wonderful stay at Sea Star Cottage. Yes, indeed, Spanish Wells is the place for friendly locals, stunning pink sand beaches, and turquoise waters. Sea Star Cottage is located within an easy walk of the beach and all conveniences, but the golf cart rentals are tons of fun. You guys REALLY did enjoy your boat rental. We know our guests are having fun in the boat when they routinely do not return until sunset! There's really nothing better than taking a few beers and some snacks in a cooler and finding your very own deserted beach and beautiful reef on which to snorkle that is all your own. Looking forward to welcoming you back next time.

Honeymooners cottage

This was simply the best! The place was perfect & very clean & super comfy! Everything was provided..even beach towels & cooler & floats.We stayed for two weeks and met many of the "locals" who were so nice. We lost our phone/camera & it was promptly returned to us the next day...where else does that happen? We rented from Lorraine Beauregard who provided taxi & water taxi for us and then met us at the dock & took us to the cottage. She's so nice and helpful...even provided some food for us as we came in on a Sunday when everything is closed.The island is perfect for r&r. We rented a boat for one of the weeks and cruised around to many beaches on the other islands & only once saw other people there. we did so much fishing that we couldn't eat it all. Great place to fish & quite a nice setup at the docks for cleaning the fish. Snorkeling is great...everywhere, as there's a reef around the island. We are going back in December....:)

Owner's Response: We are always happy to hear that our guests have had enjoyable stays. It is music to our ears. Yes, Spanish Wells is very unique in that there probably aren't many places left in the world where you can lose a camera or phone, and actually have some one find your missing item; then, take the time to figure out who owns it and return it to them. (Remember there was no name or address on your phone!) Spanish Wells is a great island for rest and relaxation. A boat rental is a wonderful way to explore the neighbouring islands and do some extra fishing and snorkeling. Glad to hear that you two did so well fishing! Guests of Sea Star Cottage do have free access to the best fishing cleaning stations on the island. Looking forward to seeing you again in December!

Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a raucus, typical American touristy experience with other raucus, typically American tourists, go to Harbour Island or any other resort-type place in the Bahamas. If you are looking for the perfect place to unwind, relax, and do nothing while doing everything you find enjoyable with that special someone in your life, go to Spanish Wells and rent one of the properties these wonderful folks have available! Clean, simple, well maintained and supported by impeccable customer service. There are not enough words to describe all the unique experiences we had on the island. Beach was picture perfect, accomodations were great, the residents(each and every one) were phenominally and genuinely caring, helpful, and happy to see us wherever we went on the island no matter what we were doing(fishing, walking, eating, beachcombing, sightseeing, swimming, shopping, etc...). The working fishing village side of the island was the perfect balance between the pink sand beach side, showing how the people of Spanish Wells juggle residing in paradise and making a living at the same time. You will never take for granted your job, life, anyone or anything in it after you spend some time with the residents of Spanish Wells, Bahamas. Be prepared, though, to spend considerably more for everyday products than you would in the U.S., as most everything has to be imported onto the island from elsewhere. The food is as fresh and tasteful as could be and we did not have anything but a great meal the whole time we were there. Very unassuming, laid back and no frills. If that is exactly what you are looking for(as we were) this is the place for you.

Great little cottage for the money!

  • 5 of 5
Looks better in real life than it does on the website; otherwise, just what we expected and more.... the place was very clean and neat, and offered everything we needed for a weeks' vacation. Lorraine and Capt. Brent were very helpful in transporting us and getting us settled in on the day of our arrival. We would definitely recommend Sea Star Cottage to others. We went fishing one day with Capt. Brent. What a great day and one of the highlights of our vacation. We caught lots of fish - mostly snappers, and he was very patient with us! We threw back the small fish so that they could become big fish one day, but kept many more fish for several nights' dinners. Excellent. The beach is just a block away and very secluded. We visited the beach each day - sometimes at sunset, sometimes at sunrise, sometimes in the middle of the afternoon -- we saw few other persons on the beach at any time The local people are very friendly. The town is charming, clean, neat, and safe. Grocery shops have pretty much everything. We will save up to come back next year.

Spanish Wells is reminiscent of an idyllic Cape Cod fishing village with swaying coconut palm trees and bright bougainvillea as background. Winding little roads lead a visitor around brightly painted cottages sporting gables and wooden shutters. 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 one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas and is considered the fishing capital of The Bahamas. The waters surrounding Spanish Wells offer excellent snorkeling, diving, bonefishing, reef fishing, and deep sea fishing. Spanish Wells is a boater's and fisherman's paradise. Fishing charters, boat rentals, and golf cart rentals are available. Spanish Wells offers grocery stores, restaurants / bars, a fully-stocked liquor store, bakeries, marinas, and more.

Other Activities: cave exploring, para sailing, basketball
