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.

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!

Everything about this place is Amazing... Jody and Tara are wonderful people. They set everything up for us so getting from the airport to the house was easy. We took a boat ride over to the island where they picked us up on golf carts and gave us a tour. I think we might have been the most excited to get to the house to see if Tara had a pie waiting for us like others had mentioned and she did .... and it was... AMAZING... The island is very safe and we felt even better knowing Jody and Tara were down the road and were willing to help with anything we needed. We went on two trips with Jody that were very reasonable and we had an awesome time fishing, snorkeling and sight seeing. Spanish Wells / Sand Dollar Beach is probably the most beautiful place I have ever been to.

We went for ice cream a couple nights and it was yummy! Budda's is really good for drinks and food. We tried a couple other places for food too and it was all very good but I wish we had tried the other places on the island instead of getting so much at the grocery store.

We look forward to bringing our family back to this beautiful and friendly place. Absolutely loved our stay here!

Everything we could want.

  • 5 of 5

Came here to relax and that was exactly what we did. It was very clean and accommodating. The owners, Tara and Jody are fantastic people. They want to make your stay the best experience possible. Went out on a boat trip with Jody, which was phenomenal. He will custom tailor your trip to what you want. We saw sea turtles, dolphins, pigs that live on an island and went shelling. The view from the house is beautiful and the beach in front of the house is a great walking or jogging beach. The town is very cute and the people friendly. Will definitely be back!

This beach house was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

After spending the first leg of our vacation at Atlantis, this serene setting was perfection! Jody was super helpful in coordinating our arrival, departure and everything in between!! The cottage is both cozy and spacious. Our 2 family party fit perfectly with the kids in the "bunk" room and adults in the other 2 bedrooms. Having 3 bathrooms made it even easier to accomodate everyone. We found the deck divine and spent most of our time there or on the beach. The kids practically lived in the water from sun up to sun down. Having an outdoor shower and washer dryer was a huge bonus. We used the golf cart daily to explore and pick up supplies. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals and plenty of room to store food. The house sits back enough from the beach to have privacy on your deck but still have a view of the water. This cottage is perfect whether you are a couple or like us, 2 families. Also highly recommend you charter Jody's boat for some adventures on the water - we went out 3 times and those adventures were highlights of our trip!

Great vacation! Jody and Tara are wonderful hosts and helped coordinate our transport to and from the airport very well, even when our plane got delayed and one of our bags got put on the wrong plane (Jody got it through customs and delivered to our doorstep by the time he'd given us the local tour). When we got to the property there was a delicious fresh lemon meringue pie baked by Jody's wife Tara waiting for us. The house was very clean and well decorated, as was the surrounding grounds and garden. The kitchen is extremely well stocked - pots, pans, baking trays, seasonings, drinking water, and grill on porch. We chartered a boat from Jody for 2 days to go snorkeling and to go reef fishing. This was an excellent experience as well. Jody is very accommodating and provided a very competitive rate. We were considering renting our own boat, but his expertise was invaluable. We had ~almost~ more fish than we could eat - if we were doing it in the future, we would put the fishing day first so there wouldn't be such a rush to eat! Spanish Wells is a beautiful place, very safe, and full of friendly locals. It does not feel touristy at all. We bumped into a few other groups of tourists on the beach but it was really quite private and relaxing. Tips for future guests: (a) everything on the island is extremely expensive so I would bother bringing little things like shampoo/soap; (b) try the restaurants for local specialties like conch salad at Budda's or conch chowder at Eagle Landing for example, but eating out can be pricey and its nice to grab some fresh lobster and grill on the porch too; (c) we all seem to have gotten coral sting which we didn't know was a thing, so if you're snorkeling try not to scrape your knees and also try to dry off completely when you leave the water in case of any larvae, (d) it's quite hard to find fresh seafood being sold to the public because most of it is exported wholesale - Bernard is one of the only local fishermen who sells his daily catch. He's located on the stretch of road between the public park (which is beautiful) and the docks and is a great guy and worth visiting just for a chat. When we dropped by there were 2 3-foot tarpon swimming in the shallow water around his dock which were amazing to see as well. He advised us to visit his son's shop - the Ponderosa shell shop, which was also worthwhile. TLDR: Spanish wells is amazing, great house, visit Bernard @3pm.

the best

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect location on the beach. It is back far enough so passers by are not to close but close enough to make it to the water in 1 -2 minutes and the view was perfect.

The house was immaculate and well stocked, every cooking utensil, pot, skillet, knife, silverware you could need. Even spices, oil, salt, pepper were there.

The king bed was very comfortable and the second story location afforded an amazing view.

The rooms were all airconditioned but the sea breeze was such we never used it.

We loved the provided golf cart and explored both islands. The beach right in front of the house was one of the best we have seen and we have been from Hawaii to the Carribean and Europe, so we have seen a few.

Jody and Tara Pinders are the hosts and are truly amazing people. They take time to answer any questions, arrange transport to and from ELH, and are available for any needs.

We have stayed in many VRBO houses and this is one of the very best.

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation truly felt like a slice of heaven! To begin with, the amazing and welcoming owners warmly received us at the dock upon our arrival and took us on a great tour through the Spanish Wells area and recommending great places to eat. When we arrived at the property, we were blown away. To say that it is an amazing property is a true understatement. The property is clean, modern, well kept, and comes with everything you could possibly need on a vacation, including kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, a floating dock, and a golf cart. The upstairs rooms are spacious and the built-in bunk beds were a huge hit with the children. The kitchen and living room was nice and allows plenty of room for relaxing. The beach was amazing, soft sand, beautiful water, and had amazing sunrises and sunsets. The best part of the vacation was a half day excursion with Captain Jody (Capt. Kid and Son). He created a customized excursion to fit our exact needs that included Preacher’s Cave, Harbour Island, snorkeling, and sea turtles. You simply cannot experience the Bahamas without being out on the water, and Captain Jody allows you to do it with class. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation, enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the owners, and absolutely loved the property and its amazing amenities. We hope to be back soon!
