Overview

Spanish Wells House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 10

Summer Breeze Villa is located approximately 400 feet from the water's edge, and a short walk to the small, quaint town. Four bicycles, a 2-person sea kayak,2 single kayaks and beach chairs are provided. Golf carts and boats are available for rent. A local Fast Ferry stops each day with connections to Harbor Island and Nassau.

The house has a spacious, open floor plan, with ocean views from all rooms. There are 3 master suites, each with a king-sized bed and its own full bathroom. There are ceiling fans throughout, and 8-foot screened sliding glass doors for ocean breezes in every room. The well-equipped kitchen is perfect for entertaining in the large living area or on the 1400 square foot deck overlooking palm trees and the turquoise blue Caribbean water! The house sleeps 9 comfortably, and is kid-friendly.

Spanish Wells has beautiful pink and white sand beaches, and water so clear that you can see your shadow on the bottom.

The small island is the lobster fishing capital of the Caribbean, inhabited by European settlers dating back to the 1600s. Crime is essentially non-existent in this clean, safe island community. Stretching from Spanish Wells to the northeast tip of mainland Eleuthera is a beautiful barrier reef called the Devil's Backbone which is inhabited with an abundance of marine life. This area is fantastic for snorkeling, and fishermen usually find that grouper and snapper are plentiful in this area. There is world-class bone fishing on the flats surrounding the island. Other island amenities include boat rentals, golf cart rentals, bicycle rentals, fishing charters, snorkeling trips, and cave tours.

Summer Breeze Is A Comfortable Getaway House With Everything

  • 5 of 5

Summer Breeze isn't fancy but it is clean, comfortable and has everything you need to relax. It is truly what a house rental should be because it actually is set up to be a home away from home in a beautiful place. It had everything as advertised and the kitchen was well equipped with kitchen gadgets etc. to please the discerning kitchen cook. My children were very sad to leave after enjoying the toys and gear. He said "this has every sport that I have ever wanted to try!" They have dvd players and tons of dvd's for kids and adults to enjoy after a long day at the beach and a deck and hammock to nap on. Caretakers Johnny and Nancy were wonderful and met us right there at the dock and rented us a cart that was great. Every room has a sliding door to the deck. The grill is better than my own at home and worked beautifully. I Can't say enough except that we will definitely be back as soon as possible. Also take time to explore Spanish Wells a little and you will meet some nice people. There is also a park with a nice little pink sands beach at the west end of the island where the bridge is.

Perfect place for a group to stay and relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and Summer Breeze. We had four adults and a three year old and the place was perfect. We cooked every night and the grill and kitchen were great for social entertaining while relaxing on the really large deck. With the beach close by it was the perfect location. The owner Ansley and the caretakers Johnny and Nancy were extremely helpful and friendly and they were very proactive in helping us with any requests. We plan to book another trip to Spanish Wells again soon and we would definitely stay at Summer Breeze again next time.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation, kids loved it, we loved it! Amenities are great, house is great. Owner called to check on our stay and couldn't have asked for more. Our ride from the airport and to the house was coordinated by the owner and David and Johnny couldn't have been nicer.

We stayed 11 days, ate at Buddhas, Sand Bar, and the Ship Yard along with Papa Scoops. Be prepared if you arrive on Sunday, the grocery store is closed. This is our second visit, this time with kids. Loved it! Thanks Ansley and Jay.

P.S.- I am writing this as we are waiting to leave, but we will be back! #bendlervacay2015 for photos!

Wonderful vacation spot! We will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

Our tans are being to fade already but not the wonderful memories we have of our 7 day stay at Summer Breeze Villa. The house was as described and had plenty of room for my family of 5. While you can catch a glimpse of the ocean from the house and the deck, there is now a house built on a lot between Summer Breeze and the beach so there really isn't a great view of the water; however, it didn't detract from our stay or our enjoyment of the house at all but feel I should mention it. The house is really well stocked with comfortable beds and linens (cotton quilts which I appreciated!), as well as a great selection of DVDs which my kids really enjoyed. This is a stress free place to come and while it is not luxurious, it is a very comfortable, "homey" place to unwind and recharge. The island itself is incredible! Very clean and safe. The house is a short walk from a gorgeous beach where we were usually the only ones there. Our favorite things to do were to walk the beach, finding shells and sand dollars, kayaking and driving the golf cart we rented around the island. We also enjoyed getting fresh fish from Bernard's and grilling it on the great gas grill on the deck. The owners were awesome to deal with calling us the day we arrived and the day we left. They arranged our pickup and drop off at the airport and gave us important tips to make our vacation more enjoyable. I would highly recommend calling Captain Ryan and book a day on his boat. He is a wealth of information about the area and the ocean-whether you book him for fishing (which we did) or a tour, you won't be disappointed.

I highly recommend visiting Spanish Wells and staying at Summer Breeze.

exceeded all expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience in Spanish Wells and this house exceeded my entire family’s expectations and that is saying a lot when you have four kids ranging from 10-23. The island itself is memorable for many reasons -- the sheer beauty of the sand and water, the laid back feeling of the island, the friendly locals, the lack of crowds and this wonderful home - What a fantastic place! The house is spacious and comfortable, great little touches like books and tips and clean, clean, clean! We immediately felt at home and then some. In addition we had a great welcome and helpful information from the property manager.

The location is unreal!! I know there are many pictures on the website and lots of great reviews but regardless word and picture cannot do it justice. I can’t recall the last trip I went on that by the end I wasn’t ready to go home, but in Spanish Wells I could have stayed for weeks and not be ready to leave. Will we return? We booked next year before we left! Go and enjoy, but promise not to share this wonderful little secret with too many people…

Perfect Little Island in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

I am still in a post-vacation funk as I just looked through the pictures from our trip. It was an amazing time in a beautiful location, and the ease and comfort of staying at Summer Breeze made it that much better.

We stayed at Summer Breeze for a week at the beginning of August 2013 - the start of crawfish season on Spanish Wells (yay for great timing!) Our group was eight people - six adults and two children under ten. The house was spacious and had plenty of room for all of us (the three bathrooms were a big help) and was well stocked with all of our needs in the kitchen for cooking big family dinners of fresh-caught fish and crawfish at home. There were plenty of movies, games and books at the house to entertain everyone in our group while we were indoors.

Obviously, the draw to the Caribbean is outside, and the house is only steps from a mostly deserted beach with beautiful white sands, and knee-deep turquoise water as far out as you can walk. The house had kayaks, paddle boards, beach games, floats and snorkel gear that allowed us to take full advantage of our little private paradise. Jay and Ansley, the Summer Breeze owners, also put in touch with local vendors who rented us golf carts to take advantage of the whole island and a boat for exploring neighboring islands. We even saw a wild mom and baby dolphin on one of our adventures!

We returned home with fresh suntans and a week of memories, and are already planning our return to Spanish Wells. We will be back as soon as we can and will definitely be staying at Summer Breeze again. Thanks Jay and Ansley for sharing your beautiful home!
