A month in Spanish Wells

Date of Stay: 01/05/12 Review Submitted: 01/31/12

I don't know if I like all these good reviews of Western View Cottage, as then it will become too popular and will be hard for us to rent again!! All of the above reviews are very true. We are just leaving after spending a month in this house and we were welcomed with the same delicious lobster dinner, and ride from the ferry, and we also had a great afternoon out with Tyson on his fishing boat. April made us a lovely banana cake as well as the lobster dinner, and we always felt very welcome and comfortable here. There were four of us here, all retirees, and Tyson and April call us "the Golden Girls"!! The house is literally only minutes from the beach shown in the photographs and we usually had it all to ourselves. Having the free golf cart and kayaks are a huge bonus, as we have been able to go wherever we wanted. The house was very comfortable and spacious, and is an excellent deal. Being able to made free phone calls to Canada was the absolutel best, as we all have families back home that we missed. The people of Spanish Wells are extremely friendly and everyone waves to you as you pass by. We tried to get to know them better and went to the Bingo night and the Karaoke which is held on a Saturday night. Many people insisted we come back the following week - so we did - and it was even more fun than the first time! We made friends with many of the neighbours on our quiet street, getting to know them and their pets, and came home one day and found some freshly picked tomatoes waiting for us on the doorstep! We also regularly visited a local fisherman who sits on a nearby wharf every day and he made us the best Conch salad we have ever tasted! Tyson took us on a great tour of Eleuthera one day, showing us all the famous spots like the Queen's Baths and some of the fancy new resorts. The day we went out on his fishing boat we caught four fish and he filleted the huge grouper right on the boat. We had it for dinner that night! We only ate out once or twice, but the food at the little restaurant on the wharf, is very good. We also had the opportunity to visit the island's museum one morning and hear about the fascinating history of the people of Spanish Wells and see all the photos and artifacts in an original house. We are sad to leave such a peaceful, friendly and beautiful island, and all its people.but hope to return very, very soon.

Western View Cottage-April 2017

  • 5 of 5

What a great time in Spanish Wells staying at the Western View Cottage! The house was bigger than we thought and in a great location. We spent most days on the pristine beach two minutes from the house, and returned each night at sunset. The golf cart (that was included) was great for taking coolers and chairs to the beach and for exploring the island. We also used it to visit the grocery store, gift shops, bars and restaurants and Papa Scoops (ice cream shop) and were able to get to all of them in minutes. Besides the golf cart, there were two bikes at the house. Across from the beach, Ty had three kayaks and two paddle boards easy to access. Ty & April were readily available by phone or in person-just down the street, to answer questions or help with anything.

Be sure to check with Ty about his charters. He took us to deserted islands, snorkeled on a shipwreck & reef and even swam with the pigs - all on a half-day excursion.

Fantastic home for a large family stay on Spanish Wells Island

  • 5 of 5

We have lived in The Bahamas for over 45 years and recently discovered the delights of Spanish Wells - in a way we'd like to keep them secret but that seems a bit selfish. The island is easy to get to on The Bohengy fast ferry from Nassau. You can fly to North Eleuthera and then take a taxi followed by a water taxi but the ferry has always been 100% on time and reliable and we like being on the water. We've rented other homes on the island but, personally, I thought this was the best yet. We enjoyed the quiet location, it was good to relax in the green garden as a change from the beach. April and Tyson made us very welcome.....loved the Mango cake, April, thank you so much. The house is very well appointed with everything one could possibly need and more. The big bonus for us was the use of the 4 seater golf cart included in the price and even more the use of the kayaks, SUP and bikes. For me the early morning paddles were the highlight of our stay. The house is close to the bridge that goes over to Russell island...great for groups jumps and the water is so clear than when one of our sons lost his wedding ring jumping off he was able to find it in over 10 ft of water. It was always easy to communicate with the Newbolds and we appreciated April being on the dock to greet us when we arrived and leaving us a second golf car to use so we could all get back to the dock when it was time to leave. Spanish Wells is a place where leaving a golf cart with the key in it is not a problem, no one seems to worry at all about theft or anything else for that matter. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for somewhere to stay on Spanish Wells.

What a wonderful stay we had at the House on Spanish Wells! Thank you Tyson and April!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our welcoming lobster dinner and having use of a golf cart, kayaks, paddle board, and 2 bicycles completed our perfect stay. Tyson also took us snorkeling and exploring in his boat for a day. The house is steps away from a gorgeous beach. A great vacation for sure!

Tyson and April are Stars of the Hospitality of Spanish Wells

  • 5 of 5

I chose to stay at Tyson and April's rental because planning this trip so late, it was available. It had kayaks, golf cart and could accommodate myself, my daughter, and two grandchildren. And the reviews of other people's experience was outstanding. I had no idea of what we signed up for. First, Spanish Wells is a non resort community with gracious welcoming people. The house is close to a town park and a beautiful beach where we made friends and the children never tired. The town's inclusive Christmas activities were a happy surprise. But the main pleasure was being cared for by Tyson and April with a greeting of a lobster dinner, the prearranged organization of getting to and from Spanish Wells, and having them as neighbors if we needed anything. Thank you both.

Wonderful getaway Western View

  • 5 of 5

Western View stay on Spanish Wells is a wonderful getaway from from a touristic vacation. My wife and kids loved the place and all the amenities that our stay came with. Everyone on the island were so hospitable and friendly. Tyson and April are fantastic hosts and their restaurant serves up some really good food. I recommend the anchor burger. To anyone else interested in vacationing to the Bahamas for a nice and relaxing vacation I would recommend Spanish Wells.

Personal and Private little island Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We are just about at the end of our stay in Spanish Wells, and we can't say enough about the island and the stay at Tyson and April Newbold's house in Western View. Even though the place isn't right on the water, it is only a 30 second walk away from the beach. Wow, what a beach. There is no place in the world where I have seen water as aqua-blue as this. The beach is perfect for little kids as there are no crashing waves. Every day was an adventure as we saw numerous large starfish, sea-biscuits, small starfish, sand dollars, huge skate, fish. For a very reasonable fee Tyson took us fishing for tuna. One of the many highlights of the trip. Lost a big tuna, but did catch strawberry grouper, yellow fin snapper, and a trigger fish. All fish we have never caught before. By the way did I mention that April had a lobster dinner awaiting us and the most amazing cole slaw and rice that we have ever had. You will not want to leave this place. You could spend a ton more money at a resort, or on a cruise, but you will never have the independence and the view as you do here. After being on multiple cruises and many islands (Sanibel-Fla., etc.) this is by far our favorite. From our nightly trip to Papa Scoops ice cream to dinner at Anchor Snack Bar for the best cracked conch you will ever have, we will definitely be seeing Spanish Wells again in our near future. Thanks Tyson and April for memories that will last a lifetime. Unfortunately it is back to reality for us in Penna.
