The Beach House sits on a beautiful white sandy beach with shallow colorful water that is protected by a reef. The summer water temperatures can reach into the high 80's with a light sea breeze. The winter offers low humidity and the water and air temperature can be in the upper 70's with stronger north winds.

Spanish Wells is a unique place with a rich history dating back to the 1600's with ties to England. This beach location is a short walk to shopping and dining. Lobster fishing is the main industry on the Island. You will find three churches on the island and several restaurants including our traditional 50+ year old Anchor Snack Bar. Our newest (Opened July 2013) and our fine dining choice would be The Shipyard Restaurant located right on the east most point of the island surrounded on 2 sides with water, breathtaking view and relaxing dining. Where you can enjoy a fine meal or just a relaxing evening cocktail while watching the sunset.

A bike ride around the island will be about four miles.

It is a peaceful place to get away from city life and enjoy island living. A local fast ferry stops each day with connections to Harbour Island and Nassau. Golf carts and watercrafts are available for rent. Fishing and Scuba trips easy to arrange.

The island is easy to get to with daily air service to North Eleuthra (ELH) from Fort Lauderdale, Miami or Nassau airports. Flight time is approximately one hour. The airport is serviced by Continental Express turbo prop service with 19 and 30 passenger aircraft or American Eagle form Florida that has a 50 passenger jet service. Bahamas Air, Southern Air and Pineapple Air are the airlines available from Nassau. A cab cost about $25 to pick up the local water taxi, which is about $6 per person. The water taxi will bring you to St. Georges Cay where the Beach House is located and the community is called Spanish Wells.

A great place for relaxing and enjoying the Bahamas!

Great property, beautiful views every direction, and wonderful owners; super hepful with everything

  • 5 of 5

Experience was great, the people of Spanish Wells are super friendly and we felt as safe as being in our own home. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The property is gorgeous. Even with hurricane Irma coming they gave plenty of warning and were as concerned for our well being as much as they're own. The views are beautiful from anywhere on the island. You can easily leave the island and go see other historical wonders on Eleuthera and it's fairly cheap by taxi. There was only one negative we had (a side from IRMA) which was the price of food. But that can be solved by bringing it with you, the extra check bag fee is less than one meal. The house is great, it has every comfort we have at home. With all the water toys, bicycles, and golf cart provided, we had everything we needed to keep us entertained and get us around. We would highly recommend this location as a great, relaxing, quite vacation to anyone.

beautiful beach, huge house

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were very pleasant. The house is on a beautiful beach with plenty of water toys in good condition. The house has 3 complete bedrooms very nicely done. Jody is a great guy to charter for diving, snorkeling, and so on. It's great to have a golf cart included as this is an extra expense and hassle in almost every island.

The Absolute Best Rental on Spanish Wells

  • 5 of 5

OMG what an awesome home and what makes it even better are the Owners/Hosts (Jody & Tara Pinder). Everything about this place is Amazing. We (5 adults) stayed here the week of July 10, 2017 and it was everything we'd hope for and MORE. The island is very safe and we loved having our own golf cart to explore land as well as the Hobie cat and kayaks to explore the waters. They recently added hammocks and a 5 person float that makes being out on the water even better. We went on a full day excursion with Jody and Tara and it was the highlight of our trip. They really know the waters and how to show a great time to all ages. We fished, snorkeled, searched for sea turtles, picked up starfish, cliff jumped, anchored at sand dollar beach and swam with the pigs. And Tara's pies and muffins are out of this world! She made my birthday magical by not only arranging to have a delicious cake made for me (and let me tell you it was the best cake we've ever eaten) but also arranged getting a personal massage at the house. She even surprised me with a birthday gift. It shows they care about your stay and will go above and beyond to make it memorable. When I mentioned we needed a larger skillet for cooking, she brought over an entire set of cookware. Don't miss Budda's! It's the local place for picking up alcohol or to grab a delicious bite to eat. We look forward to coming back to their beautiful home and the crystal clear waters.Thank you Jody and Tara for making our stay the best vacation ever!!! Now I just need to figure out how to move there. :)

Beautiful, we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic beach house and I don't think the photos do it justice. Actually, I think it has improved since these photos were taken, particularly the deck!

The large deck now has a low white railing all around it and a gate, which was a big plus for us with a toddler. We could play on the deck, choosing shade or sun, looking out at the sea while not having to chase him. There is also a very good gas grill provided, a hose for washing sand off at the gate and an outdoor shower. The friendly owners have equipped this property with everything you need to have a fantastic beach holiday.

The beach is right there, about 25 steps from the deck and the owners provide an exceptional number of toys for their guests. For us the Hobie Cat was the most fun, but the two hammocks, multiple umbrellas and large floating lounger were nice surprises. Also, the included golf cart saves a good amount of $ over other rentals and the kayaks are in great shape.

The island itself is idyllic and you couldn't find a more beautiful beach anywhere. Powder soft and clam pale turquoise water, for youngsters to enjoy. We loved the Sand Bar and Shipyard restaurants, jumping off the bridge, eating local seafood (Stone Crab from Jody) and just exploring on the golf cart.

There is another cottage just next door, but that didn't impede our enjoyment or feeling of privacy whatsoever. We will be back!

Stayed last year and was so wonderful came back again. Jody and Tara are the best! The house couldn't be any better. Fully supplied with chairs, umbrellas, grill, kayaks and golf cart included! There are restaurants, grocery stores and owners live down the street. If looking for a quiet, restful and beautiful location, this is the right place for you. They even help arrange transportation from airport😲?Perfection😁?

Ps. Captain kid (Jody) and sons excursions was absolutely amazing and such a fun time! Don't miss it
