Returned from here realizing I'd truly forgotten the world outside (and that's a good thing).

Our stay at Seeker's Delight was great. A wonderful house in a beautiful part of Spanish Wells. Lydia and Frank made sure we had a golf cart rental and met us at the ferry from Eleuthera.

They escorted us to the house and pointed out important places we needed to know about along the way. We ran into them at various points during our stay and they were always interested in answering any questions and in making sure all was well, and we always enjoyed talking with them. We had no complaints about anything during our stay. The cottage is charming, nicely decorated and furnished. The bed was comfortable and we slept well every night (can't say the same for our own bed). It has a full kitchen and a good sized fridge, for those who want to cook. On the first morning I discovered that we could look down the hall from our room and straight out to the ocean. What beautiful view to wake up to! I couldn't resist one morning and got up at 5:30 to watch the sun rise. We could snorkel and swim easily at high tide at the beach in front of the house. When we felt more adventurous we took the kayaks out to the islands you can see from the house, and kayaked around the island of Spanish Wells. Very nice kayaks that were safe and easy to use. The house was nicely stocked with things that were useful, such as towels for showers and the beach, a water cooler (with cold and hot water available), AC that was truly necessary because of the heat and humidity. Again, I can't emphasize how nice it was to have Lydia and Frank be available as friendly faces to see in the community. We knew that if we needed anything we had only to ask. Spanish Wells is a special place. If you are thinking of going there, don't hesitate to rent this cottage. You won't regret it!

Including kayaks, bikes, beach rafts, hammock. Grille, beach chairs ,& much more. Close to restaurants & bars & ice cream stand. Susan and Lydia were fantastic in helping us with all our questions and needs. We would definitely stay there again and refer to our friends.

Perfection.

  • 5 of 5

We neglected to write a review for this wonderful place and now a year later as we look to book a new vacation my wife and I were thinking fondly of how much we loved our trip to Spanish Wells and just how great Seekers Delight was. They helped us arrange transport from airport to the house. They helped us rent a golf cart which was super fun driving around, necessary, and very convenient. The house was very clean, and well kept. The bedroom and bathrooms were cozy and well maintained. Our hosts made sure we had everything we needed and checked in on us several times. There is a small path in the back of the house that leads right to the beach. OH MY GOSH is it beautiful. My wife and I pulled chairs and a table out to the end of the property and had dinner and drinks on the beach, with the sun setting in front of us over the ocean every night!!! Like a dream. We traveled with a one year old and she had a great time too. Would recommend if you are traveling with a baby to bring your own travel crib. We saw a few people on the beach every day walking past but for the most part it was just us and the sea which is exactly what we wanted. Would love to come back and stay at Seeker's Delight.

Secluded, beautiful, well furnished!!!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with my 9 and 10 year old daughters and found this home to be absolutely perfect. A bit away from the center of town, it was very secluded. We could walk and kayak and very seldom saw another person, though if we did, they were very friendly!! Lydia and her husband met us upon arrival and were very helpful and informative about the ins and outs of Island life! We will return here and looking forward to staying at Seekers Delight!!

Fantastic beach house

  • 5 of 5

As our temp is now in the single digits, I'm definitely thinking very fondly of our January week in Spanish Wells. We chose our destination based on finding this house on Home Away and having a lovely conversation with one of the owners, Susan. It was just like in the pictures - spacious, clean, and comfortable. The kind of place you wouldn't mind being stuck in the storm hit. Which was a good thing because an expected storm did hit, and the 40+ mph and driving rain kept us inside for 36 hours. During that time, Susan's sister Lydia (who lives close by on the neighboring Russell Island) consistently checked on us, making sure we were OK. Being from the mid-Atlantic, we are used to this kind of weather, and were just happy to be somewhere else other than home during it. Plus, the sisters have thought of everything to stock the house with, and there were plenty of games, DVDs, books, and other activities to keep us occupied.

On the calm weather days, it was glorious to have house directly on the water. We took sunrise and sunset walks daily, combed the beach for shells, and waded out into the water. My husband took one of the kayaks to the island directly across the water, and enjoyed exploring it a bit. The January water was just a bit too chilly for us, but I think an avid beachgoer would have just dived right in. We saw starfish, dolphins, and pelicans. Just beautiful.

Spanish Wells itself is an interesting island. It took a bit to get there, but we did it with a 15-month-old, and it worked out just fine. We flew into Nassau, and then took a propeller plane to North Eleuthera. From there, Calvin's taxi service picked us up and Ivana, and took us by water ferry to Spanish Wells. Lydia met us on the dock with our rented golf cart.

We spent most of our days exploring the island, just tooling around in our golf cart, eating at some of the restaurants (Shipyard, Sandbar, and our favorite, Anchor Snack Bar) and checking out the local stores. Like most islands, the prices for food and goods were pretty expensive. We were very impressed with the quality of the baked goods that arrive at the grocery store by local women in the morning on a daily basis.

The highlight of our trip was taking a chartered fishing boat out. Capt. Ryan Neilly took us on an easy, four hour, shallow bottom fishing trip. The fishing was phenomenal and we caught a large selection of snappers, grunts, porgys, etc. The pricing was also very good, especially compared with what we
