Enjoy birds, sealife, and a 2.5 mile pink sand powdery beach that starts right at the end of the deck.

About Spanish Wells:

The Beach House sits on a beautiful white sandy beach with shallow colorful water that is protected by a reef. The summer water temperatures can reach into the high 80's with a light sea breeze. The winter offers low humidity and the water and air temperature can be in the upper 70's with stronger north winds.

The private beach location is a short walk to shopping and dining. Spanish Wells is a unique place with a rich history dating back to the 1600's with ties to England. Lobster fishing is the main industry.

It is peaceful place to get away from city life and enjoy island living. A local fast ferry stops each day with connections to Harbour Island and Nassau. Golfcarts and watercraft are available for rent. Fishing trips can be arranged.

Getting there is easy with daily air service to North Eleuthra (ELH) from Fort Lauderdale or Miami airports. Flight time is aproximately one hour. The airport is serviced by Continental Express turbo prop service with 19 and 30 passenger aircraft. Twin Air has 9 passenger aircraft. A cab cost about $20 to get from the airport to the island, including the cost of the water taxi.. The water taxi will bring you to St. Georges Cay where the Beach House is located and the community is called Spanish Wells.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed Kiss-a-fish. The cottage was everything I pictured it to be and then some. The beach was beautiful and the locals were just so hospitable to us. A perfect vacation. Johnnie was attentive to our needs although we did not need him too much. It is wonderful to have everything go so smoothly and hard for me to believe that all promises were exceeded

Married, two children, self employed, living in seattle, WA and love escaping to the sunshine whenever we can!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

From the moment we first vacationed here, we knew this was a unique place. No hotels,a private pink sand beach to call your own and space to breathe, relax and enjoy living on a small friendly tourist free island. Spanish Wells is a peaceful and safe town with a charm of it's own. The residents are friendly and have pride for their centuries long history as fisherman. We built our house in 2011 with love and care and lots of attention to detail that matches the caribean style, yet has all the amenities one would expect in a high end rental home.

You can expect a lot of wonderful benefits to staying on a small fisherman's island. Privacy, relaxation, and a quaint town. Catch a softball game in town or take your golf cart down to Poppa Scoops for some home made ice-cream. You also have access to bonefishing right on the beach which is in front of the house. If you don't like to fish, visit the local fisherman for his catch of the day or yummy fresh lobster.Enjoy the stylish, cairbbean style color palate of the home with a large living room/kitchen area and an upstairs play area and TV watching room for the kids. Hang out on gorgeous deck and enjoy sun or shade throughout the day. At night, enjoy the gentle breezes as you star gazeon the deck. Watch the sunrise from your bedroom window, living room or by talking a walk on the beach.

WE WILL RETURN AGAIN AND AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
We returned two days ago from Kiss A Fish and feel we have left a bit of ourselves in Spanish Wells. The is truly a spectacular beachfront home and community. We stayed in the area of Governors Harbor last spring and thought that was wonderful but Spanish Wells offers a very different experience. No pretense, few tourists and a special fishing community. The residents of Spanish Wells are welcoming and some of most hospitable people we have met in our travels. We rented a golf cart from the caretaker, Johnny. (who just may be the nicest person on the planet). In addition, we rented a Boston Whaler from Johnny for a day on the water. It was easy to navigate through the area islands and we highly recommend it!
The cottage was beautiful and had just about everything we needed for the week. The Sonos music system was FABULOUS. A vast selection of music can be piped throughout the house and deck. We were in heaven.
If you are looking for spas, pampering, glitz or glamour search elsewhere, please, because you will be disappointed. It is a peaceful, pristine location nestled within an active fishing community.
Thank you, Shanaz and John, for opening your home up to others. It met all of our expectations.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were able to discover the magic of Spanish Wells for yourself. The small town nature of the island is exactly why we chose to make a home there. Hope to see you again soon!

EXCELLANT HOUSE AND OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to the island but the first time staying at this house. It was perfect. The owners were great to deal with and the house was exactly like they said. The beach was perfect. The house and decor was comfortable and it felt like you were at home. I would highly recommend this house and the owners to anyone. We will be back next year.

GREAT TRIP!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a week long stay at Kiss-a-fish, and had an amazing time! We were a group of 3 couples, and the house worked out perfectly. The location/view/quality/cost of the house really can't be beat. This was our second trip to the island, and as others have posted, SW is really a unique place to vacation. If you require nightlife or touristy type activities, stay away. If you just want to chill on the beach, fish, snorkel, or ride around in a golf cart with a fresh beverage in your hand, Spanish Wells is your place to be.

SIMPLY AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
You cannot get more awesome than this!!! This house is the best on the beach. The view is AMAZING from the deck, on the beach, in the house, it doesn't matter where you are.... you constantly know you are in paradise (I viewed it from all angles :-) ) The beds are great, the kitchen is well stocked, there is a gas grill, washing machine, kayaks, paddle boards, beach chairs, and beach towels. The fishing was awesome. My husband's goal was to catch a bone-fish on a fly rod, he caught one first on a spinning rod, but with perseverance through the week, he finally caught one on the fly rod and his trip was complete! The day we left the bone-fish were taunting us.... there were groups of 12 all in the shallows right at the edge of the water in the floating grass. It was definitely a fisherman's paradise.

As for the island, it was awesome and felt completely safe. Its a low key place. There are no bars or "party" places... however there is plenty to do. We'd go check out the fresh fish or lobster every day from Bernard's when they came in with the catch. We tooled around in our golf cart, checked things out, went to poppa scoops for ice cream at night, talked to locals, or just hung out.

For those who have not been on an island like this, groceries are "challenging". Everything costs a little bit more and produce is a little harder to come by, but we found plenty that we could still eat and use. We also froze meat and brought it in our checked baggage -- chicken, steaks, ground beef. There is a liquor store on the island where you can get cheap rum and other liquor and reasonably priced wine. The beer was a little expensive but cheaper than a bar.

The pictures do not lie. This place was great. We miss it already and would go back in a heartbeat!

BEST VACATION - GREAT HOUSE, AMAZING AMENITIES AND FANTASTIC LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We (me and my wife) stayed at this property for 5 days and it was an amazing experience from the time we landed. The landlords had arranged a pick-up for us, a Golf Cart was waiting for us and the house was immaculate.

The amenities such as Sonos music system, Wi-Fi, Roku, air-conditions in all rooms and nice furniture made us feel like we got best of both the worlds (the nature and the comfort). The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you can ask for including spices, and tones of condiments. The deck is where we spent lot of time and used the grill as well:). Not to mention, we took full advantage of the bikes, kayaks, boogie boards, etc. that they have for the guests.

The house is on the beach and so, we hung out on the beautiful, extremely secluded white sand beach and the water is so clean, clear and feels like a never ending swimming pool as you can go half mile instead and the water still stays 4 feet deep:). We enjoyed chillaxing in the water quite a bit.

We rented a speed boat and went snorkeling on the adjacent islands including Harbor island!

All in all, it was very fun, relaxing and memorable vacation. We highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for solitude, peace, connecting with nature and not giving up on urban amenities that we are used to.

Couple of suggestions - get your grocery on Thursdays, eat the Conch Fritters at Norma's and use the telescope to check out the sky at night!

AMAZING OWNER AND PROPERTY MANAGER!

  • 4 of 5
Spanish Wells and Kiss A Fish Cottage were both exactly what we were looking for. Bonefishing in front of the cottage, friendly locals, zero tourism, and a perfectly equipped kitchen for lots of cooking. Our 6 day vacation was unfortunately spent largely indoors due to a lingering tropical storm, but the house had plenty of games/music to keep us entertained. When the water heater went out on day 2, both the owner and property manager took immediate action to repair the system and after a day or so, they installed a new unit. Both the owner and the property manager went above the call of duty when they offered to reimburse us for our inconvenience. Good people, a beautiful cottage and beach, and hopefully better weather for your trip:)
