Spanish Wells House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Ocean front house with stunning all round views of the turquoise waters of the Bahamas, from front and back balconies.

4. Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms - With the beds arranged as detailed means we really can sleep 12 people. open plan kitchen and dining area will accommodate everyone. If you want to dine outside then the Deck area has a large table able to seat 8.

House is set in mature orchards with ocean to the back and a secluded sandy beach to the front ( 50yds away ) The ocean side is deep enough to swim/snorkel and keep a boat close during your stay.

We have small coral reefs in the front with resident Octopus, Puffer fish and the usual brightly coloured reef fish. Rays and Turtles cruising past , there is always something to see. Dip your rod in the water and pretty sure you would get enough for grilled fish for supper.

House is secluded but not remote, and is just a short golf cart ride ( 10 Minutes ) from all the facilities in Spanish Wells Town, Bars, Restaurants, Shops, Supermarkets, Clinic, Doctors and a stunning crescent beach with warm turquoise waters and silky white sand. Beach is great for Adults and children as the water starts very shallow and is protected by an offshore reef.

Our nearest Bar and Restaurant is " The Sandbar " opposite the house on the beach. Food is good and staff friendly, also a 1 minute walk from the front door, 30 Seconds if you are desperate.

Spanish Wells is also where the 'Bo Hengy II' fast ferry from Nassau arrives at 10:00 every morning and then travels on to Harbour Island 30mins away returning in the afternoon. Government ferries to Eleuthera leave and arrive every few minutes servicing clients to North Eleuthera Airport which is about 25 Minutes away.

The view is stunning and the house is part of it, from sunrise to sunset on the veranda I never tire of staring out to sea, with a drink in one hand and Fresh lobster cooking on the Grill.

Loved it, Loved it, Loved it !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue house as the base for our honey moon in May 2014. It was perfect. The house is stunning with views to match. Anything you may need, be it a BBQ, fishing equipment, snorkelling equipment etc is provided and if you need something else, say a boat, a water taxi, a deep sea fishing trip or some scuba diving, the owner seems to know everyone on the island, so can be easily sourced. Nothing seems too much here.

The garden is well appointed and literally runs down into the sea, so perfect for a cooling dip or other adventures. We found there was nothing better than harvesting a coconut from the garden (there are hundreds), chilling the bounty and having a freezing cold gin and coconut water as a sundowner followed by BBQ'd lobster and reef fish on the deck. Pure bliss!!!!

The island is stunning with a number of bars and restaurants to while away an evening and chat to the locals, but perfectly situated if you fancy exploring the surrounding islands, which are superb.

A beautiful house on a beautiful island.

The Blue house was a perfect place for our family and friends to be able to relax, let the kids run and play, cook the fresh catch of the day, and visit after the kids went to bed. Lots of room, perfect for 2 families! Can't begin to describe the view of both the Atlantic and Carribean waters. We loved the safe, friendly feeling at every moment of our trip. James and Chantel are amazing, taking care of us from the minute we landed in Eleuthera. Most definitely a relaxing holiday, not for someone looking to party or be entertained other than by nature and paradise itself. Thank you Justin for sharing your piece of heaven.

Great house and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome great rooms and view. The island is so relaxing and the locals were very nice. This is a laid back island wonderful island great for snorkeling and fishing. The food is good but not to many places to go out to eat but overall very friendly. We would definitely go back and stay here if it was available

Fantastic spot for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous 9 days here. Snorkeling off the front of the house everyday. Lots of small fish to seen. House was fabulous; very clean and very well stocked. Spanish Wells is a "dry" island so you need to stock up with liquor before you land; not really a problem as the liquor store is only a 10 minute boat ride away ($8 round trip) I would plan on cooking your meals the restaurants we went to where very basic (sandwiches and fries etc) We had the pleasure of spending a day on the water with James - we snorkeled and ate conch out of the shell. Fantastic fun. Truly a great spot to relax and chill. Thanks Justin we hope to come back again dealing with you was a pleasure. The pix on VRBO are a bit dated as there are now homes on either side. Not an issue really but you will not be as isolated as the pix might lead you to believe.

Perfect - the Blue House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, plus son and daughter-in-law have just spent a delightful week at the Blue House. The house itself is wonderfully light and airey with more than enough room for us. Ceramic tiled floors throughout were a great benefit as far as housekeeping was concerned. A truely comfortable place to stay. All mod cons, nothing lacking!

Out on Russell Island there is a far greater sense of room and of seclusion than in the more builtup areas of Spanish Wells itself. Having the sea at the bottom of the garden was amazing and also having a swim a short 100 yards walk the other direction if the wind was up was luxuary indeed!

The people of Spanish Wells in their beautifully neat and clean town were a joy. All are friendly, helpful and kind of like the people I remember from my youth - polite, easygoing and just downright nice!

James and Shantell who caretake the place were just the perfect "hosts". They helped in all sorts of ways and left us alone (at the end of James' phone!) when we didn't need anything. James knows the sea around there like he was born there (he was!) and had us snorkling out on a beautiful reef, looking for sand-dollars on a pristine beach and shelling with lunch on another deserted island. All this in the boat belonging to Justin the house owner.

We ate in, ate out and even once asked Shantell to prepare and deliver a mind boggling lobster dinner for a very reasonable amount. Even had leftovers for another meal!

Spanish Wells does not have the "schmutz" of the Nassau type tourist industry. To each his own but we do not need to be "entertained". We didn't even get aroung to reading the books we brought along. Renting a golf buggy (they zoom all over the islands) from Harbourside Rentals and having the perfect place to stay together with James' friendship and guidance made for a memorable stay.

Now just to get back there!!
