Great location for beach lovers
For 6 years, we have been travelling to Eleuthera in late winter (we live in Canada) to meet with friends of ours for a get-away trip. This was our first year at Spanish Wells, so there were lots of first-time experiences. In addition, our two teen-age granddaughters and one of our daughters and her family joined us. All together there were 9 of us in the home, and there was room for all. Ty and April were very helpful with information, and quick to respond to questions we might have had. Most of the information we read from other reviews was accurate. Our transportation to and from the airport to Western View Cottage was arranged by April and Ty, and the price was reasonable. For beach lovers, there was a quick walk to the beach (really...only 3-4 minutes!) and usually places at the beach to hang out under sun-shelters (either canopy or tree-shaded). For beachwalkers, there are over two miles of continuous sandy beaches. For those who like the salty water, the half-mile of shallow water is great for cooling off or kid-friendly playing. For swimmers, there is a channel leading towards a bridge for swimming. For fishermen, there were some sightings of bonefish, but otherwise not much fishing action from the shore or a kayak. It was $500 for a half-day out on a boat with a guide, and no guarantee of catching anything edible. Because of that cost, we did not partake of the pig-swimming nor the snorkeling, nor any other off-island activities. Western View Cottage was clean and wi-fi was available and fast most of the time. There was a well-equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, and it had a wonderful back-yard patio (would have been better if the yard was better-groomed) where a cool breeze and plenty of shade made it a great place to gather in the morning or at the end of a busy day. (Note: do not encourage the wandering cats to hang around - they could be nasty!) Many of our other concerns could have been handled with an information binder of some sort (what is available and what the guests have to purchase - such as toilet paper, garbage bags, dish soap, laundry soap, etc. We could have brought many of these things from home had we known, since the island prices are really up there); locations and times of store availability (holiday closures, noon closures, where one might find emergency items to purchase when the regular stores are closed). All-in-all, we are hoping to return!
We do our very best to ensure that our guest have the best time while staying with us on vacation. We have the house fully stocked with garbage bags ,toilet paper,dishwashing soap, to get you through the first few days ,But I guess after being in the house after a few days with nine people I guess it ran out pretty quickly. We also supply 5 gallons of drinking water on arrival to get you through the first few days.The gardener didn’t want to mow the back lawn because there were clothes hanging on the line he didnt want get them dirty.
As for our Fishing charters and Adventures we always guarantee at Reef Fishing that you will catch enough fish for quite a few meals. We always inform our guest of the holidays to make sure that they get all the items that they need from the store before they close . There is also a little convenience store,Island Mart that is opened every day 8 AM till 8 PM with enough supplies to get you through the holidays .
We always aim to please our guest ,ensuring they have the best vacation ever!!
Perfect stay at the most perfect house on the cutest island in all of the Bahamas!
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!!
Bahamas' best kept secret with exceptional hosts
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
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.
The House is well maintained and very comfortable. The owner made shure we were set up for travel to and from Spanish Wells.
We would stay here next time. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.
In a nutshell paradise! The island is quiet and beautiful. The beaches look like postcards!
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!
