About Mark Williams
I am a United pilot. Sailed the Bahamas for many years. Love the wind and now enjoy kiting.
Mark Williams purchased this House in 2000
Why Mark Williams chose Spanish Wells
Bought the lot after our sailboat sank in a storm. Built the house over several years for my daughters. Put my heart and sole into the place. The daughters were too busy to use the Beach House so I decided to share it with others to enjoy it as a vacation rental. Susan and I love to visit and care for the home. We keep improving things every year. My passion is kiting and having kited all over the world I have found Spanish Wells on a good day to top the list.
What makes this House unique
You truly feel right on the water. The panoramic views of the ever changing moods of the sea, sand wind and sky are a gift. No picture or words can describe this special place where time and troubles seem to stop. The little safe, clean island community of Spanish Wells is like no other place I have ever been. Friendly, helpful people make you feel welcome and secure. Maybe that is why most of the bookings are repeat and many year after year.

This was our 3rd year in Spanish Wells, our 2nd year staying at Sailbeach! I have looked at A LOT of homes on the north beach via VRBO and seen them in person; by far, Mark's house is THE nicest that I've seen. It is solidly built and well maintained! The bathrooms are a good size, beds are firm, plenty of pillows and towels (including a lot of beach towels). Seems to be some upgrades since we were there last year, like a new fridge (very large). Ceiling fans galore to keep the house airy and cool. The front wall of windows provides beautiful views of the water which is only 50 feet away! We ate every meal at the picnic table on the patio since there were such nice breezes. I took a nap in the lounger on the patio everyday; unbelievably peaceful! The house has plenty of cooking dishes and kitchen utensils. Mark also provides some really good tips for activities and necessities; his tips led us to spend a day in Eleuthera with a rental car exploring the island. To say we love staying here is an understatement! We'll be back for a 3rd stay next year!!!
Great house right on one of the world's most beautiful beeches
Had a great stay with the family for two weeks. Enough to do to keep you busy yet quiet enough to just relax. Everything one could need is right there at the house. Papa Scoops ice cream every night
We booked a charter with True Blue Charters for a day of diving, fishing and swimming with the pigs. Todd and Paul are great guys and were great with the kids. Highly recommended.
The owner, Mark, was great to work with. He provided a list of "tips" which pointed us in the right direction for food and shopping etc.
Can't wait to go back
A Little Slice of Heaven
My husband and I literally left Spanish Wells 3 days ago and we're already looking at open dates in 2018. Mark's house is just beautiful and amazing! We saw it from the water last year and after looking at it on VRBO, there was nowhere else that we even considered! The front of the house is nothing but sliding glass doors, so you can see the entirety of the shore. The house is close enough to the water that you can hear the waves while laying in bed at night. There are multiple ceiling fans, a very good A/C; even leaving the A/C at 79, the house always felt comfortable and cool. The house is spacious and very clean and solidly built! The kitchen has all the kitchen ware you need, as well as spices, PAM, etc. The bathrooms are spacious, plenty of towels, and good water pressure. The beds are firm with very comfortable bedding! Cable and other utilities worked well. There are beach towels and toys for use! We ate every meal at the picnic table on the patio! because there was such a nice breeze! We had a small issue with the sink and Mark literally called us within minutes of me sending him an e-mail about it! Very responsive. We love this house; not sure how many times I can say that. We will be regulars and already looking to book again in May! It surpassed all expectations! **Note, if you go out to the picnic table at night and look down the ramp on the right, you can see several hermit crabs crawling around; it was a cool surprise, big, beautiful shells on these crabs!
Fabulous! Not only was the house perfect the location is unbeatable!
Mark's house is well appointed and amazingly well equipped. It is very clean and is very well maintained. There were an abundance of towels for each bath and beach towels for all, too. We used the kitchen quite often and didn't want for any pots, pans or dishes.
Mark was responsive when I thought the TV was on the blink but it turned out half the island was out.
The house is located on a wonderful beach - you can walk out for hundreds of feet and be in water 3-4 feet deep.
The only problem with Spanish Wells is...more people are discovering it.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone - would be a great family retreat location.
The home is right on the beach and you feel like your on the sea. The changing moods of the ocean with shallow terquiose colored water paint an ever changing picture everyday. At low tide the large sandy beach is great for walks and the water is flat. We enjoyed the paddle boards and kayaks at low tide. We could even walk in shallow water to the distant offshore sand bars. We saw cruise ships go by everyday. Bike rides to the store and around the little island were fun. We felt very safe. It was hard to leave such a peaceful place.
We left a piece of our heart in Spanish Wells!
We are in love with the island and the people of Spanish Wells! We had an amazing vacation and cannot wait to return. Sailbeach is more than a rental! It has everything that you would need to enjoy a perfect vacation. We love to cook and were able to find everything we needed to make gourmet meals. The bedrooms are very nice and each bedroom has access to a bathroom. Our favorite thing to do each day was to kayak out to the sandbar and search for shells. We found hundreds of sand dollars and beautiful conch in the sea grass. We also saw beautiful star fish. The beach was perfect for our 2 year old granddaughter. We rented a golf cart and it's all you need to enjoy the entire island. We visited Papa Scoops each night - who has 2 new ice cream flavors each night. We also visited Buddha's (who was a treat to visit) for lunch and we were also able to get our ice, wine, alcohol, and beer from Buddha. The grocery store is very nice and had a lot more items than I expected. However, it's important to know that they obtain fresh items on Wednesday. So, the store closes around noon on Wednesday and opens back up on Thursday after fresh items are restocked. We arrived on Saturday and they were already out of milk and some other items for the week. We were very fortunate that one of the ladies at the store had saved a gallon and didn't need it. We were so grateful that she offered this to us. The people are so kind. There is a really good bakery across the street and you must try Cathy's Johnny (formally known as Journey) Cakes (hers are dairy free). She makes fresh bread daily and it is amazing - but get there early because they sell out fast. These were a treat for breakfast! We spent one day with James Dunnam (Ocean Safaris) and it was the highlight of the trip. He knows the islands so well and my husband instantly bonded with James. We all had a blast with James and felt as though we left a good friend behind. He was super! We ate at the Sand Bar, The Shipyard, and Wreckers. All 3 restaurants were REALLY good and the atmospheres were unique and very nice. We also visited Harbour Island. Best way to do it is to call Pinders Taxi to take a taxi to/from Eleuthera Ferry Dock where it's $5/per person each way to ride to/from Harbour Island. Finally, the owner, Mark, is very responsive and easy to contact. You will not regret booking this property. I cried when we left and cannot wait to return to this paradise. It was unbelievable!
Spanish Wells is the small island, approximately 4 miles long x 2 miles wide, located off the northern most tip of North Eleuthera. Upon arrival at ELH, a fifteen minute taxi ride will take you Jeans Bay, where you catch a small ferry to arrive at the Spanish Wells docks. It is one of the cleanest safest island in all of Bahamas, and is connected via a bridge to sparsely populated Russell Island. A day trip on the fast ferry to Harbour Island is fun. The Shipyard Restaurant is popular.
