Spanish Wells House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms - Free Use Of Golf Cart, Kayak, SUP board, bikes, dock

Lazy Lobster is a new rental. This traditional island villa has just been renovated and offers new furnishings. This spacious, charming, old Bahamian-style island villa offers free use of ocean kayak, bicycles, Stand Up Paddle board, 4-passenger golf cart, and free use of nice fish cleaning stations at the private dock.

Lazy Lobster is the most spacious of the island villa rentals located in the quaint and charming settlement of Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas. Lazy Lobster is perched on the crest of a gently sloping hill. The beautiful garden at Lazy Lobster offers tropical plants in a rainbow of colors, a delight to the eyes. Lazy Lobster is located in a very quiet neighborhood in the middle of the historic settlement of Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas and has quaint shops, eateries, home bakeries, and more nearby. A 2-minute golf cart ride from Lazy Lobster to the north will take guests to an unspoiled and uncrowded light pinkish sandy powder beach, and a 2-minute golf cart rider from Lazy Lobster to the south, will take guests to the harbour where they may chat with fishermen and purchase the catch of the day.

Lazy Lobster offers a very spacious living room with French doors leading unto a covered front porch. The spacious and fully-equipped kitchen leads to the large dining room and onto the large back deck. Lazy Lobster offers a master suite with a spacious master bedroom and an ensuite private bathroom. This villa offers two more bedrooms that share another large bathroom. The covered front 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 private sun deck is a great place to read a book or do a little suntanning if guests choose.

Since Lazy Lobster is located on the crest of a gentle sloping hill, there is a seldom a day without balmy breezes, which means the villa 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.)

Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas is known as the lobster capital of the Bahamas, and has a reputation of being very clean, safe, and pristine. The fishing, snorkeling, and beachcombing in the area are second to none. We can recommend the best local fishing and snorkeling guides and the best boat and golf cart rentals for your vacationing enjoyment. Spanish Wells also offers grocery stores, restaurants, bars, a fully-stocked liquor store, bakeries, marinas, variety stores, and more.

Lazy Lobster is fully-equipped, spacious, and relaxing, and makes an ideal home away from home. Free use of a 2-person ocean kayak, a 4-passenger golf cart, and bicycles are offered; they are a wonderful way to explore the Spanish Wells area. (Otherwise, golf carts, bicycles & kayaks are expensive to rent separately.)

Beds : Master Bedroom - 1 king bed and 1 queen bed, Bedroom 2: 1 king bed, Bedroom 3: 1 queen bed + a set of bunk beds. Suitable for up to 8 adults and 2 small children

We can help you with reserving fishing charters, snorkeling trips, boat and golf cart rentals, and its best to reserve these at the same time that you reserve the villa. Capt. Smiley, the property manager of Lazy Lobster, 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 Lazy Lobster. 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. 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.

Wonderful, as always

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year staying in Spanish Wells, and first time at Lazy Lobster. We were a bit hesitant to stay there, at first, as we absolutely loved the house where we had stayed in the past. However, we quickly fell in love with Lazy Lobster and requested it again for next year, without hestiation.

As indicated in other reviews, the house was spaciouis and clean, had everything that we needed in the kitchen, and the beds were very comfortable. It does take a bit of time for the water to heat up before you could get into the shower, but that was really an issue for us. The location is great - the house is locate in the newer end of the island, within close wallking distance of the Food Fair.

The front portch is wonderful for having coffee in the AM, and the back is great for nighttime.

As always, Lorraine is wonderful to work with. Our only regret is that we cannot stay longer!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to welcome you back to Spanish Wells for your 5th stay! So happy to hear that you fell in love with Lazy Lobster and have already booked your return visit for next winter. Lazy Lobster is definitely very spacious and is in a great location as it is centrally located in the middle of the island in a very quiet and friendly neighborhood. Happy to hear that you enjoyed outdoor living on the front porch, back sundeck, and lanai. The front porch is a lovely place to sit and chat and watch the passersby, the back deck is great for suntanning in privacy, and the lanai is perfect for grilling and outdoor dining. Looking forward to seeing you all again next winter. Sunny smiles :) Lorraine, Anna-Claire, and Capt. Smiley

Everything we hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

The lazy lobster was everything we had hoped it would be. Just as shown in the pictures and description of the house. The house was clean, had everything that we needed in the kitchen, and most of all the beds were comfortable, we did find however, that it took a long time for the water to heat up before you could get into the shower. We stayed (2 couples) for the month of February and had a great time, we were able to keep in touch with family back home in Canada with the high speed internet. If you are looking for a destination to relax and slow down your usual pace, Spanish Wells is the place. All the people are so friendly; everyone waves as you drive around the island on the golf cart. The golf carts are all that is needed for transportation to get around the island; you can actually walk or bicycle to most everywhere. It is expensive for groceries, compared to the grocery stores in Ontario, we just made sure that what we purchased we ate, especially the fresh vegetables and fruit. The boats come in Thursday and Friday with the new shipments of food, so Friday and Saturdays are the best days to do your shopping, by Tuesday or Wednesday, bread, milk, and fruits and vegetables are not always left on the shelves. We began buying jugs of water for $2.95 and quickly found out how much water you actually go through in a week, so after asking around we were able to find a local who did reverse osmosis from their home and began buying our water from there for $.50 a jug. We also enjoyed going to Steve’s place for dinner, Steve puts up a poster at the beginning of each week with a menu for Saturday evening dinner on his front porch, dinners were great, and good value for what you got, we brought our own wine and he supplied the glasses, top notch! Papas drive-thru ice cream stand was just around the corner, posters went up daily with the two homemade ice cream flavours, this is where we got our ice cream fix, as the ice cream at the grocery store was around $20 a tub. The beach was fantastic, just cannot say enough about how clean the beach was, one could walk and walk on the beautiful sand, even when it was windy the sand did not blow up into your face, was really easy to walk on, and when the tide was out you could walk out, what seemed like forever and it not be deeper than your waist. One day when the tide was out the guys decided that they were going to kayak over to Eleuthera, and saw dolphins and starfish, one of their great adventures.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet you all. We are happy to hear that Lazy Lobster was all that you had hoped it would be, and that you found that the house was clean, beds comfortable, and everything you needed for your stay was provided. All the beds and all the furniture and other contents at Lazy Lobster are brand new. If you had called and advised us about the water taking a bit long to heat up before you could get in the shower, we would have fixed the problem. We just needed to turn the water heater up to the winter setting as opposed to the summer setting, so, there is no more waiting for the hot water before jumping in the shower. Spanish Wells is definitely the place you want to vacation if your aim is to slow down and relax. All guests have fun riding around on the golf cart or bicycles. Yes, you can fill your own jug with water for 50 cents per gallon at Spanish Wells Choice Water on 22nd Street. Papa Scoops makes the best homemade ice cream each day, and many guests do visit Papa Scoops every evening. Yes, the beach located just a minute or two from Lazy Lobster is just amazingly beautiful. We enjoyed talking to the guys as they went out kayaking often and had exciting stories to tell when they returned. We look forward to welcoming you back to Lazy Lobster and Spanish Wells soon. Warm smiles ~ Lorraine and Capt. Smiley.
