Pineapple Cottage is perched on a hillside in beautiful Spanish Wells, with the top deck having a partial view of the sea, which is just a few minutes' walk away. From the cottage, Pineapple Cottage, you easily walk to the harbour, the town, or the 2.5 mile long pink-sand beach, or the bonefishing flats. Pineapple Cottage, Spanish Wells has a small garden filled with tropical flowering trees, which attract tropical birds. Nearby restaurants and grocery stores offer free delivery. Boat rentals and golf cart rentals available. We recommend that you book these in advance. Spanish Wells is known as the fishing capital of the Bahamas. The fishing snorkeling and diving in the area is second to none. Spanish Wells is also considered one of the safest, cleanest, and most pristine areas of the Bahamas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a awesome time. The Cottage was so cute. It was so close the beach and the bikes made it really easy to get around. We loved the outside shower. After a full day out in the sun, you could have a shower while looking at the stars and moon. I wish I could have one of those in

Canada. It would not be the same though... I would recommend the cottage to anyone. John (property manager) was really helpful and so nice.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for. We came down to SW for a batchelors' weekend of fishing and had a blast. The Pineapple Cottage was a great base station for sure. The quaint kitchen with its gas stove was perfect to cook up our catch of the day. The outside shower was nice to rinse of the salt underneath the daylight and the porch was wonderful to spend time playing cards, drinking rum, and talking shit. We will be back to you the Pineapple Cottage without a doubt.

Quaint Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Pineapple Cottage. The location is great....easy walk down the street to the beach. Everything was clean, and the owners and caretakers were very accommodating and quick to respond to our questions and needs. The cottage is not fancy, but provides what one would need for a stay. The one thing I would suggest is a bathroom upgrade. We took most of our showers in the outdoor shower because it is better than the tub/shower in the house. Other than that, we were comfortable and pleased with our stay.

Cozy cottage, perfect for low-key relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved our stay at Pineapple Cottage. It's cozy and clean, and has everything you need for a relaxed vacation. The property manager was reachable by phone any time we had questions. The cottage is a short walk to a few shops and the beach, and an easy golf cart ride from beaches, restaurants, etc. The cottage has all the basic amenities, as well as a comfortable porch and outdoor shower. We had a lovely stay!

It's a simple clean cottage w/excellent property management & ownership. Perfect location to one of the best part of the beaches (especially at low tide!) The cottage has a lot of character.

feedbacks from july 13 visit

  • 2 of 5

Even if we felt well during the stay in the Pineapple cottage, we have to share three points

The pineapple cottage is very charming on the internet pictures but when arriving, we understood that the pictures are older. The swing on the terrace does not exist anymore. It is a pity as it is the most attractive picture of the cottage on internet and was one of the motivations for us to ask for availability, as we do not have such cottages at home.

The next point is about sleeping during the night.

The AC is not state of the art but very old. The AC equipments, both upstairs and downstairs are very old, rusted. On top they are very noisy and this is not the working noise but more squeak and rattle noises coming from missing maintenance or defects. The noises made by the equipments make it impossible to have the AC running when sleeping.

The mattresses on all beds are on top very hard. This has been a choice when buying them but is not matching for everybody.

Further comment is about the equipments of the cottage.

TV did not work. It makes it impossible for VCR, DVD…

The bicycles were out of work. This is not matching to the internet description and makes it necessary to rent a golf cart.

These are deviations to the offer.

The outdoor shower is in a very old state but working and this is a great feeling when using.

There is no way to use the old shower on the first floor. Full replacement needed.

Very safe feeling and very nice people met on the Island.

Great beaches.

All shops you need available. A visit to the small shop in front of the house is worth it !

Charming, The Un- resort perfection

  • 5 of 5

Thias place is great value in a undiscovered paradise. No Tiki Bars, no calypso. Just a beautiful perfect beach with lovely friendly islanders. Five people on a three mile beach was crowded. The Island has limited access to fresh food but the local seafood is outstanding. The cottage is immaculate and what is not perfect is part of the charm. Tell your friends! YOU are responsible for your own memorable decompression.

Car: not necessary

Spanish Wells is a small island town off the coast of Eleuthera. The population is made up of white Bahamians who make their living from the sea. The town is neat and clean, with most houses sporting a fresh coat of pastel paint (reminding one of Bermuda). There is a barrier reef called the Devil's backbone which offers some of the best snorkeling and fishing in the world. Swimming, boating, snorkeling, fishing are just a few of the activities. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation on a non-tourist island, there is nothing like Spanish Wells in all the Bahamas today.
