My family and I just returned from our vacation on Spanish Wells, Bahamas. This year we stayed in a rental called Western View and it was perfect! From the moment arrived, we were greeted by friendly locals at N. Eleuthra airport - Guerney and Calvin Pinder. They also took us by boat to Spanish Wells where we were greeted by our hostess, April Newbold! She was as friendly in person as she was during our conversations on face book! Since our cottage wasn't ready, April offered to store our belongings at her house and gave us her personal golf cart to use so we could enjoy the beach sooner than later! We were so happy to be back on the island and out kids were thrilled too! After a swim and sand castles, our rental was ready mid afternoon and upon our arrival, our luggage was waiting for us, and a lobster dinner was on the table (cooked by April)! Yummy! Although our rental was not located right on the beach, it was a five minute walk or a 2 minute golf cart ride. This 3 bedroom, fully equipped rental is the only one on the island that comes with a golf cart (approx. $250 per week) and a home made lobster dinner upon arrival :0) Although Spanish Wells is a quiet island, it is the perfect location for swimming, shelling, daily walks along the beach, sand castles, fishing, reading, relaxing and golf carting around town. Kathy's bakery has the best home made bread, the new restaurant, The ShipYard offers scrumptious meals and alcoholic beverages, Harbourside has wonderful gifts to buy and enjoy along with Boston whaler boat rentals (we rented a boat for a day and it was magical being out on the water and finding private cays and enjoying snorkeling), the Snack bar also offers delicious food and yummy ice cream, the new Smoothie bar offers a blend of refreshing drinks on hot days and Norma's Seaside Restaurant has good lunch items too! All in all, I would definitely recommend a vacation on Spanish Wells as well as the rental, Western View! It is everything you see and read about online and more!
