Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, Sleeps 11

Spacious, charming, historic Bahamian island cottage offers beautiful views of the ocean, harbour, and bay from the top sun deck.

Sea Fan is the most grand and spacious of the historic cottages located in the quaint and charming settlement of Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas. This charming, historic cottage is perched on a crest of a gently sloping hill and offers outstanding panoramic views. Lounge on the top deck and marvel at the view of the ocean and its seven shades of blue or the harbour and the colorful sailboats passing by. The beautiful garden at Sea Fan offers tropical plants in a rainbow of colors, and a variety of tropical fruit trees. Sea Fan is located in the middle of the historic settlement of Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas and is surrounded by quaint shops, eateries, home bakeries, and more. A straight path from Sea Fan to the north will take guests on a short stroll to an unspoiled and uncrowded light pink sandy beach, and a straight path from Sea Fan to the south, will take guests to the harbour where they may chat with fishermen and purchase the catch of the day.

The ground floor at Sea Fan offers a large open great room. The kitchen is fully equipped and open to the dining and living areas. Also on the ground floor is a king bedroom, a queen bedroom, a full bathroom, and laundry facilities. The covered porch is a great place to relax at the end of the day and wave to passersby many of whom will stop to have a friendly chat. The back deck offers an area for outdoor dining and barbecue grilling.

The top floor at Sea Fan offers a large bedroom with a queen bed and a full bed along with a large full bathroom en suite. There is also an open loft bedroom with a queen size bed. The private sun deck is a great place to take in the ocean, sea, and harbour views, and to read a book or do a little suntanning if guests choose.

Since Sea Fan is located high on a hill, there is a seldom a day without balmy breezes, which means the cottage is very comfortable most days throughout the year with guests enjoying open windows, paddle fans, and the fresh air. (There is also A/C throughout the house for those guests that prefer such.) This historic cottage is fully-equipped, charming, and relaxing, and makes an ideal home away from home.

Beds: Ground floor: 1 king, 1 queen, 1 queen sofa sleeper. Beds: Top floor: 2 queen beds, 1 full. Accommodates up to 8 adults and 3 small children.

A rental at Sea Fan includes use of one 4-passenger golf cart, a great way of exploring Spanish Wells and Russell Island.

We can help you with reserving fishing charters, snorkeling trips, boat and additional golf cart rentals, and its best to reserve these at the same time that you reserve the villa. Capt. Smiley, the property manager of Sea Fan, along with his brother Capt. Scuba are licensed captains that enjoy taking our visitors on fishing, snorkeling, boating, and caving excursions. Many of our guests say that their excursion with Capt. Smiley or Capt. Scuba is one of the very best parts of their vacation. The captains also rent boats and golf carts at the best prices in town. Call us to reserve your boat, golf cart, or excursion.

Spanish Wells is the fishing capital of the Bahamas, so there is all kinds of fresh seafood available.There are eight restaurants or take aways, a full liquor store, 3 grocery stores, and five variety stores that sell local goods, souvenirs, and more within 1 mile of Sea Fan. There are also home bakeries for fresh baked goods each day, coffee and pastry cafes, and even homemade fresh ice cream, daiquiris, and smoothies available nearby.

Spanish Wells is reminiscent of an idyllic Cape Cod fishing village with swaying coconut palm trees and bright bougainvillea as background. Winding little roads lead a visitor around brightly painted cottages sporting gables and wooden shutters. One can walk around the island, wade for sand dollars on the north beach, purchase the fresh catch of the day from local fishermen, and browse the centuries-old village. Spanish Wells offers one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas and is considered the fishing capital of The Bahamas. The waters surrounding Spanish Wells offer excellent snorkeling, diving, bone fishing, reef fishing, and deep sea fishing. Spanish Wells is a boater's and fisherman's paradise. Spanish Wells is considered by many to be the most prosperous, clean, pristine, and safe community in The Bahamas.

About Brent Beauregard

We are a local family living in Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas, and we are the property managers for Sea Fan. Our family dates back to the original Eleutheran Adventurers, the first European settlers in The Bahamas, dating back to 1648, who shipwrecked on Devil's Backbone Reef just off of Preacher's Cave in nearby North Eleuthera.. Brian aka Capt. Scuba is a licensed boat captain and works full time as a lobster diver. When not diving commercially for lobsters, he is a local fishing & snorkeling guide, and also offers area tours and cave exploring. (Some have called him the Crocodile Dundee of North Eleuthera.) Brent aka Capt. Smiley is also a licensed boat captain who also offers fishing and snorkeling trips, boat rentals, and golf cart rentals. He is also a local rental property manager. Lorraine is the local North Eleuthera realtor and will be pleased to show you all the best local real estate deals (her listings and all other agents' listings) when you are in town. Just give her a call if you would like any information on the local real estate market or a free real estate tour. We love sharing our piece of Paradise with our new friends.
