About Brent Beauregard
We are a local family living in Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas. 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 Spanish Wells 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.
Brent Beauregard purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Brent Beauregard chose Spanish Wells
Conch Shell Beach Villa is located on more than 1.5 acre of beach front property so that it offers much more privacy than most of the beachfront rental properties in the area (which are typically situated on 1/8 acre or less). This lovely vacation villa rental offers a private gated entrance and a large private garden with many coconut palm trees, an abundance of flowering trees, sea grape trees, coco plum trees, and large native Bahamian shade trees. This villa is located in an area of large beachfront estate lots (most 2+ acres) where there is no public beach access; so, this is the most quiet and secluded stretch of beach in Spanish Wells.
What makes this Villa unique
Conch Shell Beach Villa offers a boat, SUP board, ocean kayaks, and bicycles with the rental free of charge on a quiet and secluded beachfront property. Conch Shell Beach Villa guests receive discounts with Spanish Wells SeaVentures.
Max guests: 6 (sleeps up to 4 adults)
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Conch Shell Villa is situated in an ideal location with gorgeous views from the porch. The very short walk to the beach is super easy and leads to the powdery white sand and blue water that brings us all to the Caribbean in winter. I walked/ran the beach in both directions several mornings and encountered maybe 10 people total all week. The boat is a nice perk—we took it out once—do mind the tides before setting out. The two person kayaks are also fun! The house is outfitted with all you need for eating in—we did so for breakfast and lunch everyday—and has plenty of bath and beach towels. We love having a washer and dryer available so we can pack lightly. The property is dated, and it shows, mostly in the bedrooms and bathrooms. In one of the bedrooms there was no space to put clothing other than the closet with a few usable hangers. Minor, but annoying when you have to live out of your suitcase for a week. The window unit AC in one bedroom was incredibly loud. While the temps ranged from low to high 70’s the house became very warm during the day, and we used the AC in both bedrooms and the living area. The owners did come take a look at the AC but the problem was not resolved and they expressed surprise that we needed AC. Our golf cart, which we rented through the owners, was incredibly slow. Not only did cars pass us but so did other golf carts. The owners did swap out the golf cart but we were told that all of the rental golf carts were slow, and the replacement was indeed equally slow. Overall, Spanish Wells is a great place to visit if you are ok with relaxing, eating, drinking, and repeating. For first timers, remember the prices for everything are much, much higher than in the states. We loved the Shipyard, Budda’s, and Wreckers (go early for happy hour drinks and appetizers—we went at 6 one evening and waited TWO hours for TWO pizzas for the four of us), and Sandbar is by far the best food and service and location. Definitely stock up on groceries and beer when you arrive on Saturday as the grocery store and liquor stores are closed on Sunday.
Thank you for choosing Conch Shell Beach Villa for your vacation! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed Conch Shell Beach Villa's ideal location, gorgeous ocean views, powdery pinkish- white sand beach, the crystal clear blue ocean, the boat, the kayaks and your vacation in Paradise! Yes, most guests find that they have miles of beach to themselves! In the information we send to all guests before they arrive, we do advise them that the rental golf carts on the island are slower than the golf carts owned by locals who have put special speed gears into their personally owned golf carts so that they go faster; so, yes, rental golf carts will be slowest vehicles on the island. Most of our guests do vacation here because of the slow pace and the desire to relax, so most are not in any hurry at all. Yes, Spanish Wells is good for relaxing, eating, drinking, and repeating, but if guests would like to be busier than that they can go snorkeling on an amazing barrier reef, beachcombing on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, kayaking to other nearby cays, paddle boarding, swimming with the famous swimming pigs, visiting historic sites and the local museum, touring caves and beautiful blue holes, island hopping to other nearby islands, gazing at the wonderful Glass Window Bridge, and guests can try their hands at the world class reef fishing, bonefishing, and deep sea fishing that this area has to offer, or hop over to Harbour Island and visit the art galleries, and so much more. Guests will never run out of interesting things to do until they want to!
Great location and the beach was perfect. So few people on the beach it is very private. Nice quiet location and island
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the quiet, private, and secluded location of Conch Shell Beach Villa and the PERFECT beach. Thank you for being our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! :)

Excellent comfortable villa
We stayed in this quiet clean safe villa with another couple we’ve been friends with a lifetime. The villa was very nice and secluded with wonderful landscaping to make our tropical retreat perfect. We did not need the A/C at all. Kitchen is well equipped. The local grocery stores are very nice. Grocery prices are double what we pay in the Midwest but we expected that. . Gas is also. Accommodation prices are high also. One thing to remember is they have started bring your own bags or carrying devices for you groceries we did not realize this whey we first shopped. The villa is dated but comfortable. The beds are Kings and were ok as far as comfort goes. Bedding was nice. The two bathrooms are adequate and appreciated. Living area is roomy with ok furniture it could be a little more comfortable but definitely sufficient. Water pressure and supply was good. Drinking water we bought as tap water is salty. The front porch was our favorite place well accommodating with chairs and an outdoor table for dining. It was really windy the first half of our vacation on Spanish Wells but the villa is protected by lots of trees and shrubs making a comfortable outdoor patio environment. The extra equipment was an added bonus though due to high winds we were unable to take much advantage of this time. The path to the beach is a winding trail of sand surrounded on both side of tropical shrubbery and palms. This added a whimsical secret path feeling we enjoyed several times each day. The grounds are well kept and several types of birds and wildlife along with two local cats that frequent the property we enjoyed. If we were to make suggestions it would be a larger living rm TV with swing out wall mounting and a wall mounted TV for each bedroom with DVDs or Roku to access your Netflix or Amazon to retire to. These are luxuries that add value to your rental property and will make your guests feel at home. Newer mattresses and living furniture would also be a plus. With that said it is a very comfortable home. We did rent the golf carts from the manager while there they were in need of attention as far as steering and running (the carburetor and belt needs a little attention) and I’m sure as with all rental just needs known and will be attended to we have no doubt. The management were very accommodating, friendly, and on top of everything brought to their attention. Conch shells are only allowed in checked luggage we found! Love the beaches and harbor area
Shelley, thank you for your very detailed review! Yes, that is what is so special about this place --- it is quiet, it's safe, and it's clean. I am so happy that you enjoyed a perfect vacation in our beautiful tropical retreat. We do have the best grocery store in any of the Bahamian out islands located just a couple blocks away. Yes, like you, most guests cannot get enough of that amazing view from the front porch with at least ten shades of green and blue framed by swaying palms. It is really "picture perfect". We have ordered new mattresses, which will be in place by your next visit. Thanks for advising us about the golf carts. Please let us know as soon as you think you have a problem with anything, so, we can make it right for you right away. We had the mechanic look at the new golf carts that you had rented. There were no issues with the steering or the carburetors, but he did find that one of the belts could be tightened a bit, and the air in one of the tires was a bit low. We are happy that you all had a great vacation, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon! Lorraine and Capt. Smiley. :)
Nice small house, great quiet vacation
Spent a week at conch shell in June...it was perfect....from Lorraine, Ron, and Brent’s hospitality, to the gorgeous property, to the private serene beach, to gorgeous sunsets, to the boat that we used every day! The villa is really great and even cuter than the pics...we also loved Spanish wells, it’s nice and quiet...not a ton of restaurants but we loved wreckers and went there several times (saganaki and pizza are incredible!)...the grocery is surprisingly really good and had all that we needed...we enjoyed cooking in a few nights. Tips: bring lots of cash (there is an atm on island if needed), and definitely you’ll want to buy bottled water there, liquor is about the same price as in states. Also note, we debated staying at the cove (which is gorgeous) and French leave resort but after seeing the main island as compared to Spanish wells, we were really happy with our choice!!! Overall an incredible week! We would come back ina heartbeat!
We are so happy that you had a wonderful stay at Conch Shell. All of your friends at Spanish Wells Realty, Ltd. - Bahamas Vacation Homes look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
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. Fishing charters, boat rentals, and golf cart rentals are available. Spanish Wells is considered by many to be the most prosperous, clean, pristine, and safe community in The Bahamas. Spanish Wells offers grocery stores, restaurants / bars, a fully-stocked liquor store, bakeries, marinas, and more.
