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.

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!

Amazing island, creation and the warmest, most generous people you'll ever meet.

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 days at Western View. My husband and I and our adult daughter and her husband did a fishing charter one day and snorkeling charter another day with the owners, Tyson and April Newbold. Very fast response, thorough, efficient and knowledgeable help with all aspects of reservation, transportation, island history, fishing, reefs, water safety, etc.

Both have lived on Spanish Wells their entire lives. Personally customize activities to your vacation wishes. One of our best vacations ever as they made it so special!

Perfect beach family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to escape from life's craziness! Tyson and April are wonderful hosts providing a cozy, well stocked home that's literally a 2 minute walk to the beach! And 5 minutes to the jumping bridge! We were there with our 3 children (17, 14, 8) for 7 days and could have stayed much longer! The pace on the island is wonderfully slow and a great way to recharge! The beach is almost private and the perfect spot for catching breath taking sunsets. Then head to Papa Scoops for ice cream!

A few tips... The golf cart provided is perfect for getting around the island. No car needed. Highly recommend booking TyMan Charter to fully enjoy all Spanish Wells and Northern Eleuthera have to offer. Bring some groceries with you. Grocery stores stocked on Tuesdays and not as wide of selections as in US. Also the prices are higher so plan accordingly. Only a few restaurants on the island but kitchen easy to cook in with gas grill outside.

We will be going back!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Western View Cottage. Very close to the water that it is not an issue. The house was very clean and beds are comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. The beaches have the best sand ever and the community is very friendly. Thank you Tyson for a great time.

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.
