Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented "seekers delight" for a relaxing 2 weeks away from our lives in Arizona. Great house and a huge private yard. House is right on the beach and very private. You might go all day without seeing a person walk by!

The water was warm and weather was great. The sand was clean and water clear! The house has everything you need, towels, some kids toys and lots of beach chairs.

Spanish Wells is a really cool town. Everyone knows each other and literally it is the most friendly place I've ever been. (This was our 4th trip to other islands on the Bahamas). Food is a little expensive at the store and milk arrives on the island on Tuesdays! Check out "papa scoops" drive through ice cream at night and Budda's Bar / Snack Shack for dinner and entertainment. At least 5 other good restaurants on the island to check out, or just cook in.

If you are into fishing I recommend Shaw Underwood who can be reached on WhatsApp at 242-359-7067! Family friendly snorkeling, feeding the swimming pigs, sandbar exploration and lots of fishing! We caught over 30 fish and had fresh dinner almost every night!

Lydia and Franklin (the owners) were amazing, always available and helpful. They pick you up at the dock and they will even go to the market for you ahead of time if you are coming in late day. They are honest and real good people.

We flew Pinnaple Air & Bahama Air. No issues with either and the staff was friendly. Calvin Pinder picks you up at the airport and has a legitimate van and big ferry boat. Short ride to the island with him. Fly to North Eluthera airport. They say Delta flys direct from Atlanta daily. We came from Florida on our trip.

We loved the house and beach. Got to know some locals and made some friends! If your looking for a quiet, safe and fun trip try Spanish Wells. We traveled with 4 kids age 3 to 13 and felt 100% safe all the time. Kids ran the beach without us and played on Lydias boats. Beach was safe and water had small waves of any for entire trip.

We stayed for 2 weeks and I do recommend staying 1 week + stay as it takes a little longer to get there but it's really not a big deal.

Bring Apple TV or something for movies. AC was always cold and Internet was very fast for texting & streaming video. Use WhatsApp for calls and communicating with locals. Works perfect.

We did have to wire funds to owners account, but there were no issues. Bring enough cash for excursions and ferry ride!!

Fabulous beach front house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Seekers delight beachfront house. Best beach on Island. The house was very clean and very well equipped with everything you need. 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.

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
