Guestbook comments from the owner

A month in Spanish Wells

Guest: Hilary (Ottawa, Canada)

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.

Perfect stay at the most perfect house on the cutest island in all of the Bahamas!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t even begin to put into words how incredible our stay was on Spanish Wells at Western View. For starters, Tyson and April had arranged our taxi from the airport to the ferry and ferry over from Eleuthera. He picked us up at the dock and drove us to our home for the week. The house is perfect!!! There were only four of us but it could easily sleep 12. There are TVs with cable in each bedroom and in the living room, spotless WiFi and a phone to make calls to the US and Canada if need be. One of the best aspects is that the house comes with a golf cart which is all you need to get around Spanish Wells (like a $250+ value). The beach is about a 5 minute walk from the house but we took the 30 second golf cart ride down each day where 3 kayaks and a paddleboard were waiting on us. They also provide linens, towels, beach towels, beach chairs and loads of beach toys. Also make sure you charter their boat for at least a full day!!! Tyson and April took us cliff jumping, to pig island, snorkeling, fishing and to sand dollar sand bar for what made an amazing day!! We will definitely be back!!

Kansas City

Bahamas' best kept secret with exceptional hosts

  • 5 of 5

We found our way from Kansas City on this beautiful island by recommendation of a friend of my husband. As an experienced, well-traveled VRBO host, I am beyond grateful that we picked Western View and stayed with April and Tyson for Thanksgiving. I wholeheartedly claim this experience to be the best nine days of our lives.

Spanish Wells will simply mesmerize you in with its wide, flat, soft-bottomed pink sand beaches nestled along a mixture of palms, pine trees and other tropical foliage. The dramatic tidal change at night lends to unforgettable sunsets in a romantic peaceful atmosphere. No wonder these mile long emerald waters have long been treasured by ancient sailors, painters, poets, and romantics. The warm hospitality of the locals who will wave as you pass by immediately lures you in to dream of becoming a Bahamian.

The photos of the house really do not do it justice. We entered a clean, crisp, spacious house with all the amenities one would possibly need and more: fully equipped kitchen, incredibly large bedrooms and bathrooms, beds that slept like a dream, backyard patio with local fruits where we picked our bananas for our breakfasts and all the gear sure to satisfy any beach lover's cravings (kayaks, paddle boards, tubes, chairs etc). Throughout our stay, April and Tyson could have not been more attentive, courteous, gracious and welcoming. ... I can describe their hospitality style as friendly but not intrusive filled with lots of smiles, caring and willing to share all of the secret spots of the island.

Our souls relaxed and our senses were heightened by the plethora of smells, sights and sounds of this island. We are forever thankful to our hosts who graciously shared their space and let us make this vivid colorful dream come true.

Wonderful Home with Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The house is incredible and has everything you need to enjoy Spanish Wells. Tyson & April were great to answer questions and had everything set up for us including our taxi to and from the airport. They even had dinner waiting for us when we arrived. We could not have asked for anything more. We loved using the kayak to go explore the small island across from Spanish Wells and even made a goat friend. It was a blast! If eating around the island, we highly recommend Wreckers, the Sandbar on Russell Island, and the Anchor Snack Shop.

In a nutshell paradise! The island is quiet and beautiful. The beaches look like postcards!

  • 5 of 5

Our home was lovely and had all the amenities one needs for a wonderful vacation. It truly is a home away from home. The rooms are large including the kitchen and the appliances were up to date. The golf cart makes it easy to get around the island and the islanders are so friendly. Our host was extremely helpful in arranging our transportation to and from the airport. They also arranged a wonderful fishing trip for my son. He caught so many lobsters while spearfishing we took some back home!

Spanish Wells Western View

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 3 nights in Spanish Wells at the Western View Cottage. What a delight!

April & Tyson made everything flawless for our visit. The house is beautiful and had absolutely everything you need to be comfortable. We greatly appreciated the spices & sauces in the kitchen for preparing our fish. We are really glad we went out bottom fishing with the the Newbolds and then had food for every meal during our visit! They are a wealth of knowledge about Spanish Wells and fun to be on the boat with. The house offers kayaks, sups, bikes and a golf cart. Having all of these amenities allowed us to see and enjoy the island in a number of fun and interesting ways. They coordinated our arrival from N.Eluethra to the island via cab, ferry & golf cart- totally smooth. It made it all so easy! Thank you! We hope to return some day to the peaceful island and would love to rent & fish with April & Tyson again!
