                                                              Seekers Delight is a DELIGHT!! My wife and I are in LOVE with our home away from home.

                                                              Hank D.

                                                              As our arrival got closer, both Susan and Lydia were in communication with us to ensure that we were adequately prepared. When we arrived in Spanish Wells we were met on the pier by Lydia. She arranged for the golf-cart that we had rented to be sitting right there for us to drive as we followed her to Seekers. I highly recommend that you get Whatsapp prior to leaving and at least send Lydia a quick message. She is FANTASTIC and can ensure that you have everything that you need while here. From making sure that we knew how to get our water bottles refilled, to actually going out of her way to ensure that it would be delivered, she was there. We even found a bunch of bananas sitting at the door one afternoon after we got back from the beach. It's the little things that add up to be a lot. I would compare her to our Spanish Wells mom.

                                                              -Our first day was grocery shopping and a decompression day. Be prepared for the prices when you get here. It is an island and everything is expensive. As it stands now(March 2018), the exchange rate for US$ is 1/1 with the Bahamian dollar. Easy conversion.

                                                              -Sunrises are a treat!! Head out the back, go to the beach, take a right. It's about a 10 minute leisurely stroll to get to the best viewing spot. Keep in mind we are here in March, so later in the year, no walk may be necessary. Night time viewing is AMAZING! I stepped out the back door one night, well, just because, and glanced up into the sky. I am pretty sure that there wasn't a star that I couldn't see. Stunning. My wife and I actually took a couple of chairs onto the beach on night, reclined back and enjoyed the view for quite a while. We almost fell asleep out there, it was so restful and calming.

                                                              Spanish Wells is wonderful. The people are some of the friendliest humans I have met. Cordial to a fault and actually interested in how you found the "Jewel of the Bahamas". They take great pride in their home and so they should. Of note, most everybody waves. While you are tooling about in your golf-cart be prepared to wave, a lot. As with some places that we have been where we felt like an intruder or outsider, that was not the case in Spanish Wells. The residents certainly know the tourists from the locals, but, they don't treat you that way.

                                                              -Lydia and Franklin are a joy. They are a moment away if needed and are a pleasure to talk to. Make sure that if you have a question, ask them. A great percentage of the Delight in Seekers Delight is due to them.

                                                              Dear Henry,

                                                              Thank you for detailing your wonderful experience at Seeker's Delight. We are gratified to get the results we strive for: an unparalleled holiday experience for our treasured Guests.

                                                              Please continue to consider Seeker's your true "Home away from Home"!

                                                              See you soon, we hope!

                                                              Susan, Lydia & Frank

                                                              Beautiful setting

                                                              We spent an incredible week in this house in late March with our two children. The house is well appointed and comfortable. We felt right at home with the charming art on the walls, cabinets full of games and everything else we needed for our stay. What really can't be beat is the setting on the water and the beautiful stretch of beach. We set out our beach chairs, watched the kids play and spent many relaxing hours right in the backyard. Spanish Wells was the perfect spot for us- no resorts, friendly people and great food to be found at several island restaurants. Thank you Lydia, Franklin and Susan for your hospitality!

                                                              Perfect house, right on the beach

                                                              We always enjoy our holidays in this house : beautifully furnished, great bed, outdoor shower and.... the beach !!

                                                              We will be back soon

                                                              What a delightful and relaxing beach cottage. The peaceful seclusion and ‘off the beaten track’ of this place is very special. The owner of this property and her sister who is close by will make the rental of their home a wonderful experience.

                                                              Dear Kim,

                                                              Thank you for taking the time to share your "Delightful" experience with us!

                                                              Please come back and see us whenever you can!

                                                              Kind regards,

                                                              Susan & Team

                                                              Sunny retreat, all amenities

                                                              Cate H.

                                                              Susan, and her army of friendly lady helpers, set this beach cottage up wonderfully: there is so much attention to detail, from the inside paint job to the decorations, it was all very nice, clean, and easy. Whatever didn't quite work or we didn't understand, Susan and her friends took care of immediately, and with a smile. They were very responsive even while on vacation themselves. The place comes with lawn and beach chairs, towels, games, toys, and most importantly when you have teenagers, with wifi. We made a few sand castles, which with this fine sand, is so easy. We snorkeled a bit in front of us, and went on excursions across to the rocks you see in the pictures, and discovered a goat on the island. We watched fireworks at the public park next to the house on Christmas eve. A lovely house, with a mostly private beach.

                                                              Spanish Wells is a quaint beach town, with essentially one grocery store with funky hours, and very little in terms of fresh produce and fruits, which is disappointing. The shops around town are mostly selling t-shirts and caps as souvenirs, and there is only one craft store that we could find. Tourism is mostly oriented towards boating activities, like fishing, snorkeling expeditions, scuba diving... We did see some amazing reefs and wildlife on one of these excursions. Don't forget your camera!

                                                              On our last day, we all went for a walk on the beach, constantly talking about how none of us wanted to leave the place. It was a sad departure.

                                                              I highly recommend this rental and location for a family in search of a beautiful and easy vacation spot. I want to come back already.

                                                              Dear Cate,
