About Roy and Linda Pinder (owners) Dylan Pinder (Property Manager)

Roy was born and raised on Spanish Wells and Linda was born in a settlement not too far away named current. We both love to meet new folks and entertain. Roy sings and plays the guitar when he is not working as a commercial lobster fisherman and Linda takes care of the home when she is not preparing fabulous meals for their guests

Why Roy and Linda Pinder (owners) Dylan Pinder (Property Manager) chose Eleuthera

Roy and Linda have always lived next to this property and this is where they started their married life together. The previous owner was a sweet lady named Mrs Marjorie. This is where it gets its name. After Mrs Marjorie passed it seemed only natural to keep the place in the family.

What makes this cottage unique

We consider all of our guest as our family. Since the property is close to our primary house, it makes it convenient to take care of our guests.

Great stay in Spanish Wells

  • 5 of 5

Aunt Majorie's is the great location, about a 5 mins walk from the beach, 5 min golf cart ride to the grocery store and restaurants. As a bonus, the rental comes with a golf cart which made it very easy to get around the island. The cottage has everything you need to be comfortable including internet, BBQ, and plenty of outdoor seating for eating outside or even just sitting and enjoying the sun. Roy and Linda are great hosts - they made us feel comfortable right away, told us all about the island, things to do, places to see, etc. They are also close by if you need anything at all.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Part of the magic of Spanish Wells is the ferry ride from north Eleuthera. The 20 minute boat ride is the perfect way to disconnect from all your worries. Once we reached the docks we were greeted by Roy Pinder who made us feel right at home. A quick golf cart ride and we arrived at Aunt Marjorie's cottage, where we met Linda who made us feel very welcome. A Beautifull property, very well maintained. My wife and two young boys were in heaven. Roy and Linda are both great hosts and we leave this amazing paradise with great memories to last us a lifetime.

Thank you Roy for the music and Linda for the crawfish salad and Johnny cakes!! You were wonderful to our family and we hope to be back soon

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Roy and Linda's was awesome. Everything about it was perfect. Roy and Linda are great hosts. They'll make your stay at Spanish Wells very memorable. The cottage is a very short walk to the white sand, perfect beach of Spanish Wells. Roy will take care of any questions you have before and during your stay. Linda had a yummy lobster salad prepared for us and homemade jam waiting for us upon arrival. The house is very clean and FULLY equipped with everything you will need. Would love to go back! Thank you for the memorable vacation.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible vacation I had to celebrate my 50th birthday! This wonderful home provided everything we needed for our 12 day stay. We were greeted at the doc by Roy and from that moment on, we became family. We were greeted by Linda at the house with an amazing lobster tail meal! We actually got to meet a lot of the family that were there as well visiting from the States. The cottage has a lot of history to it and I felt really special staying there. It was very clean and felt like home. It was nice having the golf cart to get around the island. I was so excited when Roy and his family invited us on a day trip to the Exumas on his boat. What a beautiful day we had snorkeling, feeding the iguanas, watching the grand kids spear fish and being able to see all the sharks, dolphins and stingrays in their natural habitat. I highly recommend that if you want to go to a place with your family and/or friends, this is it! The waters were absolutely beautiful and the beaches are gorgeous. All the food on the island was so good... I will definitely be returning to this paradise. I miss Roy and Linda and family... I wish there was more time to spend but I look forward to the day I return. I promise you will not be disappointed in this cottage and will gain more friends for life!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our time on Spanish Wells. We staying in Aunt Marjorie's Cottage for one week, which was not long enough. Linda and Roy were the most hospitable hosts; you will immediately feel like family. We loved talking with them and listening to Roy's stories about his lobster fishing career. Spanish Wells is definitely one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. The small island is perfect if you are looking to get away from the crowds. Everyone on the island was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed riding around on the golf cart (buggy) that was provided, especially after getting ice cream from Papa Scoops and watching the sunset every night. There was never more than a dozen people on the beach at one time. You can sit/stroll on the light pink sand, wade in the clear blue water, or go on the most beautiful snorkeling adventure ever! The fresh fruit on the island was the best we have ever tasted, and the lobster (crawfish) and cracked conch were delicious! Be ready to tear up when it's time to leave! We are already counting the days until we can return to this piece of paradise. Everything was absolutely perfect! We will definitely be staying longer next year! Thank you Linda and Roy for everything!

Spanish Wells is a unique, quaint fishing village with a diverse history ranging from early pioneers looking for freedom to pirates and most recently hard working fisherman who love the sea. The only way to the Island is by water taxi and the primary mode of transportation around the Island is by Golf Cart. If one could describe the ideal setting for folks looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and yet experience worry free living it would be Spanish Wells. The Island offers great people, great food and fantastic fishing and diving opportunities. There is no better location on the planet for kids and adults to experience the beach and water without the crowds.
