Conch Shell Beach Villa offer free use of a 16' motorboat, 2 tandem ocean kayaks, and bicycles. This charming beachfront villa is located in the quiet western area of the beautiful 2.5 mile long delicate pink sand beach of Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, Bahamas. This area of Spanish Wells Bahamas offers some of the best bonefishing in the Bahamas. Conch Shell Beach Villa is located on more than 1.5 acre of beach front property so that it offers much more privacy than most of the beachfront rental properties in the area (which are typically situated on 1/8 acre or less). This lovely vacation villa rental offers a private gated entrance and a large private garden with many coconut palm trees, an abundance of flowering trees, sea grape trees, coco plum trees, and large native Bahamian shade trees. This villa is located in an area of large beachfront estate lots (most 2+ acres) where there is no public beach access; so, this is the most quiet and secluded stretch of beach in Spanish Wells. This beachfront garden is a great place to relax in the hammock and peacefully read a good book.
The Villa:: The interior of the home is decorated in the very colorful island tradition with much of the furniture of wicker and rattan. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large great room, and a full kitchen.The villa offers every convenience including cable TV, DVD/CD player, washer & dryer, microwave, paddle fans in every room, and air-conditioning throughout. Free unlimited high speed internet is available. There is a very nice sea view from the great room and the kitchen.
There is an expansive covered front porch that offers up a great view. This is a great place to relax and read a book on the chaise lounges in the shade, or to dine outside while taking in the view. Adjacent to the porch is an outside shower so that one can rinse off salt and sand before entering the house.
Extras:: Bicycles and ocean kayaks are offered with the vacation rental with which one can use to explore the area. A 16' new fiberglass boat with motor is also offered for those that love fishing, snorkeling, and sightseeing. With the boat one can explore nearby islets, islands, cays, deserted beaches, and some of the Spanish Wells Bahamas area's most beautiful reefs. The boat is moored right in front of the villa making it very convenient to use at anytime. Otherwise, motor boats, kayaks, and bicycles are expensive to rent separately.
Conch Shell Beach Villa is located on an idyllic beach with powder soft pinkish sand. The beach is calm, tranquil, and warm with no rocks, rough surf, or riptides, and the ocean is so clear you can see your shadow on the bottom.
Fishing charters, snorkeling trips, cave tours, and golf cart rentals are available. It is best to reserve these at the same time as the villa.
Spanish Wells:: The Spanish Wells area is well-known for its great fishing and snorkeling. The Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef is just offshore. Terrific bonefishing can be had right in front of Conch Shell Beach Villa.
In Spanish Wells Bahamas, you will never run out of things to do until you want to. The native Bahamian quilt makers, the local straw vendors & the museum are always fun to visit. A visit with local fishermen as they bring in their fresh catch each day can be both informative and delicious. A trip on the Fast Ferry to nearby Harbour Island is a delight, and you won't want to miss the local restaurants, the new gym, the bakeries, and the best fishing and snorkeling that the Bahamas has to offer.
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.

We are a local family living in Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas. Our family dates back to the original Eleutheran Adventurers, the first European settlers in The Bahamas, dating back to 1648, who shipwrecked on Devil's Backbone Reef just off of Preacher's Cave in nearby North Eleuthera.. Brian aka Capt. Scuba is a licensed boat captain and works full time as a lobster diver. When not diving commercially for lobsters, he is a local fishing & snorkeling guide, and also offers area tours and cave exploring. (Some have called him the Crocodile Dundee of North Eleuthera.) Brent aka Capt. Smiley is also a licensed boat captain who also offers fishing and snorkeling trips, boat rentals, and golf cart rentals. He is also a local rental property manager. Lorraine is the local Spanish Wells realtor and will be pleased to show you all the best local real estate deals (her listings and all other agents' listings) when you are in town. Just give her a call if you would like any information on the local real estate market or a free real estate tour. We love sharing our piece of Paradise with our new friends.

We have really enjoyed this week at Conch Shell Beach Villa. We loved having use of the boat. We used it every day. We went to many deserted nearby islands and beaches. ( Wonderful for being all alone with my wife. ) The snokeling was fantastic and we actually swam with dolpins yesterday! It was an experience that we will not forget. We also kayaked around the entire island. We enjoyed the bicycles, the quaint town, and the friendly locals. We hope to return to this unique and wonderful place. Many thanks to Lorraine, Anna-Claire, and Brent for all of their help in making this an unforgettable vacation.
What an amazing island home. The listing, photos, description, travel representative and caretaker were exactly right on the mark! The house (really well equipped kitchen) was lovely with amazing porch, view and access to the ocean. Arrangements to and from North Eleuthra airport seamlessly handled by Lorraine ( travel rep.) We never left this island. Bikes, golf cart and boat in great working order. Great vacation spot for quiet vacation. Not many shops on this island and a few small resturants (heard other islands close by and accessible) had more to offer in these areas. We were quite content to kayak, ride bikes, sun bathe, read and nap. Note: for people interested in snorkeling, bring your own equipment as there are no venues for renting equipment. Wish we had known. Maybe listing could note that. Thanks for a great vacation!
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Conch Shell Villa and loved it! The property is private and beautiful. We spent a lot of time on the beach and in the boat. Travelling the island in the golf cart was so easy and convenient. Definitely rent a cart! The listing was as described with no surprises! The house was very comfortable and clean. We had everything we needed/expected.
We just returned from a week's stay at Conch Shell Beach Villa on Spanish Wells and we are still basking in the afterglow of an awesome vacation!
The villa was cozy, clean, and exactly as pictured here. We were pleasantly surprised to find a jug of water and a loaf of fresh baked bread upon our arrival. The bread was incredible and made the most delicious French toast. We cooked all of our meals at the villa and the kitchen had all the pots, pans, and utensils we needed. The washer and dryer were a big plus! We never turned on the AC. We left the windows open with the fans running and always felt comfortable.
The view from the verandah was gorgeous! To enjoy the verandah to its fullest we recommend you bring or buy bug spray. This is a tropical island after all and, like everywhere else, the mosquitos like to come out after the brief afternoon showers. Not a problem if you’re prepared.
The boat was great for fishing and exploring. We took it out each evening to bob around in the water while watching the beautiful sunsets and moonrises. We even got to see a GPS satellite launch from Cape Canaveral from our beach on a clear night with a full moon. Amazing! The optional golf cart rental is an absolute must.
The beach was fantastic with white sand, loungers, and kayaks. We would be on the beach for hours – either in front of the villa or walking – and would not see a single soul. Incredible!
Lorraine was very helpful in arranging the rental and round-trip transportation. She even picked us up from the ferrry herself the day we arrived. Brent was extremely friendly and made sure we had everything we needed to make our vacation memorable.
The large grocery store, Food Fair, has everything you need for home cooked meals and anything else you might want/need. We were surprised at the large selection of items you wouldn’t expect to find on such a small island. Budda’s on 12 Street sells beer and alcohol. And if the fish aren’t jumping on your hook there are a couple of places you can buy it – Ronald’s or Bernard’s for example. Lorraine's son even stopped by one day to see if wanted any fresh Mahi Mahi.
Spanish Wells is not for everyone. If you need bars, nightlife, shopping, or other entertainment then look elsewhere. But you want deserted beaches, lazy days exploring by either boat, beach, or golf cart - and can make your own fun - then we highly recommend Conch Shell Beach Villa. A perfect vacation for us!
Lorraine made all the arrangements to get us from the airport to the villa and back. The villa was just as described and shown in the pictures -- a very pretty, clean and comfortable place to stay. The beach is beautiful, the yard is gorgeous, and the mattresses were the most comfortable ones we've slept on away from home. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the washer/dryer were great to have. The boat that went along with the rental was wonderful, and we spent hours out on the water every day, fishing, snorkeling and sightseeing. Lorraine and Brent answered all our questions and were very helpful. We recommend this property in the most glowing terms! Spanish Wells is a wonderful place to visit. We rented a golf cart as well, which was great for tootling around the island and going across the bridge to Russell Island.
We had an amazing vacation at this house in Spanish Wells! It was our first time to the island and the house was perfect. We had 4 adults and it was very comfortable and spacious. The outside deck with table just extends the living space. We cooked almost all of our meals and enjoyed the trips to the local shops, especially the fresh baked bread everyday! Having the kayaks and boat allowed us to explore the nearby islands and do some great fishing. I would highly recommend this for anyone that wants a true island getaway. The local people were very nice and it was fun exploring in the golf cart. We can't wait for our next trip back!
My wife and I had a great time at Conch Shell Villa. This was my first time to Spanish Wells. The people on the island are exceptionally friendly. The oceanfront house had a great view of the nicest beach on the island. Having access to the boat allowed us to exlore different islands. It also helped us to snorkel at different spots. We get plenty of conch, three starfish and other creatures from the ocean. The house was very comfortable. We enjoyed cooking in with the grill. The kayak was fun to go across to the other island. I've never experienced such warm water in all the bahamas.
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, bone fishing, 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 is considered by many to be the most prosperous, clean, pristine, and safe community in The Bahamas. Spanish Wells offers grocery stores, restaurants / bars, a fully-stocked liquor store, bakeries, marinas, and more.
