Conch Shell Beach Villa offer free use of a 16' motorboat, 2 tandem ocean kayaks, and bicycles. This charming beachfront villa is located in the quiet western area of the beautiful 2.5 mile long delicate pink sand beach of Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, Bahamas. This area of Spanish Wells Bahamas offers some of the best bonefishing in the Bahamas. 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. This beachfront garden is a great place to relax in the hammock and peacefully read a good book.
The Villa:: The interior of the home is decorated in the very colorful island tradition with much of the furniture of wicker and rattan. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large great room, and a full kitchen.The villa offers every convenience including cable TV, DVD/CD player, washer & dryer, microwave, paddle fans in every room, and air-conditioning throughout. Free unlimited high speed internet is available. There is a very nice sea view from the great room and the kitchen.
There is an expansive covered front porch that offers up a great view. This is a great place to relax and read a book on the chaise lounges in the shade, or to dine outside while taking in the view. Adjacent to the porch is an outside shower so that one can rinse off salt and sand before entering the house.
Extras:: Bicycles and ocean kayaks are offered with the vacation rental with which one can use to explore the area. A 16' new fiberglass boat with motor is also offered for those that love fishing, snorkeling, and sightseeing. With the boat one can explore nearby islets, islands, cays, deserted beaches, and some of the Spanish Wells Bahamas area's most beautiful reefs. The boat is moored right in front of the villa making it very convenient to use at anytime. Otherwise, motor boats, kayaks, and bicycles are expensive to rent separately.
Conch Shell Beach Villa is located on an idyllic beach with powder soft pinkish sand. The beach is calm, tranquil, and warm with no rocks, rough surf, or riptides, and the ocean is so clear you can see your shadow on the bottom.
Fishing charters, snorkeling trips, cave tours, and golf cart rentals are available. It is best to reserve these at the same time as the villa.
Spanish Wells:: The Spanish Wells area is well-known for its great fishing and snorkeling. The Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef is just offshore. Terrific bonefishing can be had right in front of Conch Shell Beach Villa.
In Spanish Wells Bahamas, you will never run out of things to do until you want to. The native Bahamian quilt makers, the local straw vendors & the museum are always fun to visit. A visit with local fishermen as they bring in their fresh catch each day can be both informative and delicious. A trip on the Fast Ferry to nearby Harbour Island is a delight, and you won't want to miss the local restaurants, the new gym, the bakeries, and the best fishing and snorkeling that the Bahamas has to offer.
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.

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.

We have really enjoyed this week at Conch Shell Beach Villa. We loved having use of the boat. We used it every day. We went to many deserted nearby islands and beaches. ( Wonderful for being all alone with my wife. ) The snokeling was fantastic and we actually swam with dolpins yesterday! It was an experience that we will not forget. We also kayaked around the entire island. We enjoyed the bicycles, the quaint town, and the friendly locals. We hope to return to this unique and wonderful place. Many thanks to Lorraine, Anna-Claire, and Brent for all of their help in making this an unforgettable vacation.
Where in the world do I start? Spanish Wells was our destination choice for this trip simply because my husband and I needed a true "get away" from everything, to completely disconnect it that's possible from our busy work at home. We took books, and planned to do nothing other than to rest and relax in the water, on the water and on the beach. This was by far the BEST beach we have ever been on. The seclusion, privacy, peace and quiet were unmatchable. The only sound was an occasional seagull and the waves crashing. Absolute heaven. The house was stocked with everything we needed to get by for a week. We arrived a little later in the day on the day before Bahamian Labor Day, so Lorraine advised us to run to the grocery store before unpacking bc they wouldn't be open the next day. We got enough staples to last the week, with the exception of water and ice, we did have to return for those a couple of times. We were not looking to explore or get off of Spanish Wells, so truly each day was spent either on the beach or on the boat. We snorkeled twice off The Devils Backbone. My most exciting day was snorkeling that turned into a starfish hunt. I love starfish and we found several. I also snorkeled right in front of the Villa and found several conch, one starfish and several sea urchin shells. My husband had packed his kindle and read the days away either on the beach or under the palapa. We tried kayaking but the days we chose the water was really too strong so we didn't do much of that. We really enjoyed the use of the boat! We really only ate at 2 places The Shipyard and Buddhas. The food at The Shipyard is really good, but the atmosphere at Buddhas is great! We did happy hour there and had really great food...if you're a burger fan you must try the slurger burger. You cannot beat the chill laid back atmosphere of this iconic little island. The people are wonderful friendly people, and so accepting of tourists. We felt like we had stepped back in time to the late 60's early 70's where life was so simple, fun, safe and friendly. They wave from their porches, cars, and especially the golf carts. That was my favorite part of the trip, that you could get around on a golf cart so readily. I could say more, but the most important thing to say is this. Don't wait, don't worry it is a no brainer. Conch Shell was perfection for us!
This was the perfect house for our family of 5. Tranquil setting, private beach, great beach recreation with kayaks, paddle board and best of all - the Carolina Skiff. We used it every day. The beach and surrounding water is simply amazing.
This was our second visit to Spanish Wells and both times Lorraine and her staff have made the visit a breeze with regards to taxi pick up and buying groceries for our first day (the grocery stores are closed on Sunday). The house is located on the quiet side of the island and is very, very clean. Loved sitting on the porch looking out over the spectacular water views. The only down side to the house seemed to be the water pressure, was a bit low. The beaches are second to none, the people - warm, friendly and very helpful. It has the feel of stepping back in time. Can't say enough good things about it all.
We had a lovely week at Conch Shell Beach Villa! This was our first visit to the Bahamas island of Spanish Wells. We try to avoid the "hotel scene" as much as possible, and the reason is because there are places like this one to rent. First of all, the property is absolutely beautiful with lovely trees and flowers, all beautifully maintained-- so relaxing to be in such beautiful surroundings! We took full advantage of all the amenities. The bicycles were great to have and we used them to get our morning exercise by cruising around the island. We did lots of exploring with the boat and found an awesome swimming/snorkeling cove about a mile past Ridley's Head. Brent was so nice to us and even took the time to take us on a short boat ride so we could get familiar with the boat. We spent a lot of time enjoying the lovely white sand beach -- great for adults but also perfect for anyone that has little kids! I think we only counted about 10 people on the beach the entire week! The golf cart (optional/extra charge) was so convenient and a fun alternative to a full size car (which would have been overkill for an island this small!)-- great to have to head down to the Shipyard for dinner (great drinks and seafood!). Also, Budda's Snack Shack is a "do not miss"--- doesn't look like much, but they have great food and Budda comes around to each table to introduce himself (AND they have a resident parrot!). Have to also thank Lorraine for arranging all of our land/water taxi transfers to get to and depart from the island which all went off smoothly with no problems!
A word of advice to anyone coming to Spanish Wells-- don't use the tap water to make coffee (tap water is salty!)-- get bottled water at the grocery store. Also, given that this is a small island and grocery selection is limited, I recommend bringing any items you can in your suitcase (we did this and it helped to eliminate some of the sticker shock at the grocery!). We are looking forward to a return visit to the Bahamas sometime in the future. THANK YOU, Lorraine and Brent!
What an amazing island home. The listing, photos, description, travel representative and caretaker were exactly right on the mark! The house (really well equipped kitchen) was lovely with amazing porch, view and access to the ocean. Arrangements to and from North Eleuthra airport seamlessly handled by Lorraine ( travel rep.) We never left this island. Bikes, golf cart and boat in great working order. Great vacation spot for quiet vacation. Not many shops on this island and a few small resturants (heard other islands close by and accessible) had more to offer in these areas. We were quite content to kayak, ride bikes, sun bathe, read and nap. Note: for people interested in snorkeling, bring your own equipment as there are no venues for renting equipment. Wish we had known. Maybe listing could note that. Thanks for a great vacation!
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Conch Shell Villa and loved it! The property is private and beautiful. We spent a lot of time on the beach and in the boat. Travelling the island in the golf cart was so easy and convenient. Definitely rent a cart! The listing was as described with no surprises! The house was very comfortable and clean. We had everything we needed/expected.
Spanish Wells is reminiscent of an idyllic Cape Cod fishing village with swaying coconut palm trees and bright bougainvillea as background.

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.
