About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Cocoplum was designed to be true to the classic Bahamian style of architecture bordered with a large porch and topped with dormer windows to maximize shade and cross ventilation. Construction was completed in 2013 with Bamboo floors throughout. The house is elevated, which affords unmatched views of the island from its hilltop perch and captures the tropical breezes. However, if in the summer months the warm climate becomes too much, Cocoplum can also easily be cooled with the press of a button on the whisper quiet mini-split air-conditioners. The interior is decorated in soothing tones with minimal, but very comfortable furniture for an uncluttered and calm feel. The kitchen is a chef's dream with all modern appliances, lots of counter space, an island with seating for four and an open plan that flows into the oasis of the living room. The 12-foot deep porch is probably where you will spend most of your time lounging on the outdoor furniture, enjoying the breeze and watching the boats go by in the harbour below, or eating something hot off the grill conveniently located adjacent to the large dining table. The master bedroom and bathroom are downstairs and are truly luxurious. There is a queen size bed and lots of closet space, large windows seem to bring the outdoors in and elegant plantation shutters filter the rays of natural light streaming through as the setting sun paints this west facing room in its many hues. The master bathroom sports his and her sinks and the option of a lavish soak in the claw-footed tub, or a shower in the stall unit. Upstairs, there is another spacious, western facing bedroom with a queen size bed, and a large closet as well as a smaller bedroom with two single beds. The upstairs bathroom has an all-in-one shower and tub unit, toilet and a large sink. The full size washer and dryer are tucked conveniently under the stairs behind bi-fold doors. The carefully landscaped garden is growing in nicely with recently planted flowers and palms and also boasts mature, native fruit trees which bear seasonally. There is a large space under the house in which to park your golf-cart, (if you rent one), in the shade and hang your swimwear and towels up to dry after an invigorating, post-beach rinse in the outdoor shower. Please enjoy the use of the two bicycles to go sight-seeing and get some exercise.

What makes this house unique

Cocoplum is a beautifully decorated new house in a unique location at one of the highest points on the island. Not that traffic is a real problem in Spanish Wells, but Cocoplum is far enough away from the main roads so that you don't hear the many golf carts “riding” around at night, but it is still within walking distance of the supermarkets, bakery, the quaint harbour and the gorgeous beach. Cocoplum is a beautiful retreat and a perfect home base from which to experience the best of the Bahamas.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home on beautiful island! Our family has been fortunate to stay at Cocoplum on more than one occasion. Each time we return we wish we could stay longer. The home is perfect location walking distance to beach and grocery. The high elevation provides a wonderful breeze. Interior is gorgeous with all of the supplies needed. 5 stars all around....

Second year staying here, and it only gets better.

Awesome house, awesome place.

Owners are great, and Jarrod & his wife (caretakers) were fantastic.

I've been spoiled by staying here, as all other rentals need to measure up to this.

Wow...A Beautiful Place in a Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled all over the world for both work and pleasure and my stay at Cocoplum and Spanish Wells was definitely one of the (if not 'the') top spots I have ever stayed at or visited....and the competition is pretty stiff including places like Maui, Dingle Ireland, US Virgin Islands and Israel.

The house is exactly what you see in the pictures. It is not only decorated gorgeously and tastefully but it is also extremely comfortable. I half expected to discover that I had accidentally walked onto one of those television decorating shows just as they are doing 'the big reveal' to some delighted couple...except no television cameras (but my wife and I got to be the delighted couple!).

The house is very conveniently located a very short walk or cart ride to the beach, grocery store, bakery, liquor store, restaurant. We spent most of our time either walking on the beach or enjoying the elevated deck. The house is situated to that there seems to be a gentle breeze almost continually.

What makes Cocoplum a 'winner' is not just the house but Spanish Wells. If you want nightlife, bars, shopping, etc., then you will not be happy in Spanish Wells. However, if it is total relaxation, the Spanish Wells in the spot. The people are very friendly, polite and always willing to help with advice or directions if needed (nobody is hawking jewelry on the beach or pushing to buy condos. There is no crime on Spanish Wells. I think most people don't bother to lock their doors and most of the golf carts I saw, all had the keys left in them. When we walked on the beach (2.5 miles) we would typically see 4 or 5 people in total.

My only regret is that I was not able to stay more than a week. The good news is that week was equivalent to about 3 'relaxation weeks' anywhere else I have vacationed.

We will definitely be back.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home!

Tasteful decorating, a kitchen with EVERYTHING that you could ever need, two spacious bedrooms for the adults, plus a smaller one for the boys, and a fabulous porch for relaxing in the afternoon.

It's on a slight hill and gets a fantastic breeze in the afternoons. If we hadn't had the kids with us afternoon naps on the porch would have been a daily thing.

It is within easy walking distance to the Foodstore and bank, as well as Pappa Scoops for a new ice-cream flavor every night. Also walking distance to beach which was good for the kids. Actually, everything is pretty much in walking distance, but you should get a golf cart and explore the island, plus a walk to the bridge or The Shipyard Restaurant might get a little long in the hot sun.

Both the owners and caretakers were great to deal with.

Overall a great place to stay!

Spanish Wells offers all of the best of the Bahamian Out Islands in terms of history, natural beauty, friendliness and accessibility to fresh seafood along with the conveniences of well-stocked supermarkets, restaurants and most recently even bars, plus reliable local infrastructure. There are options for renting golf carts and boats and deep-sea fishing charters can also be arranged. The equally historic and beautiful, and significantly busier Harbour Island, is a ferry ride away and well worth a visit if you haven’t yet been. Eleuthera stretches for one hundred miles to the southeast of Spanish Wells and is home to famous sights and landmarks such as the Glass Window Bridge, Preacher’s Cave and Surfer’s Beach as well as many historical Bahamian settlements. The North Eleuthera airport is the closest airport to Spanish Wells and there are daily flights from Florida and Nassau. Once you arrive at the airport you must take a taxi to Jean’s Bay and then a ferry to Spanish Wells. Another option for getting there is to fly into Nassau and catch the Bo’Hengy, (a Bahamas fast ferry), directly to Spanish Wells.
