Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Spanish Wells - Pink Sands Beach Cottage

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 7, in front of a wonderful pink sand beach

Pink Sands Beach Cottage is a very beautiful new beach cottage with a direct access to a breathtaking pink sandy beach. Most of the times you will be alone, and if it gets crowded, you may have two to six people around ... 2.5 miles of stunning beach. On this part of this beach, at low tide, the ocean is a magnificent turquoise lagoon.

The cottage is ideally situated. Everything is within walking distance: supermarket, bakery, restaurant, bank, ATM machine, doctor, pharmacy...

Our caretakers will kindly pick you up at the harbour and drive you to the cottage.

This old-fashioned looking cottage gives visitors to Spanish Wells a real taste of island living. Located on quiet Saint George's Cay, this heaven is the perfect place for relaxation, for honeymooners, a romantic getaway, a quiet family vacation or if you just want to get away from the world for a while.

Spanish Wells, a prosperous island: Spanish Wells is considered one of the most quaint, clean, and prosperous islands in the Bahamas. It offers a rich history and old world and out island charm, and, yet, is very civilized. Spanish Wells is the envy of Eleuthera, The Bahamas, and even the region. It is part of the well known Eleuthera island.

The population is predominantly white native Bahamians, many of which are descendants of the first British settlers from the 1600's or Loyalists from the 1700's. People speak English, with a British accent. Spanish Wells is not a 'touristy' island.

Spanish Wells is prosperous, clean, safe, and beautiful. Spanish Wells is a neat and clean little town with most homes sporting a fresh coat of pastel paint, a real island getaway. Spanish Wells is reminiscent of an idyllic Cape Cod fishing village with swaying coconut palm trees and bright bougainvillea as background.

Spanish Wells offers everything you need: Spanish Wells has beautiful pink and white sand beaches, and water so clear that you can see your shadow on the bottom. Stretching from Spanish Wells to the northeast tip of mainland Eleuthera is a beautiful barrier reef called the Devil's Backbone which is inhabited with an abundance of marine life. This area is fantastic for snorkelers, and fishermen usually find that grouper and snapper are plentiful in this area. One mile off shore, there's great sport fishing. There's world-class bone fishing on the flats surrounding the island. 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 several supermarkets, a bakery, several restaurants or take away (which serve native Bahamian and American dishes at reasonable prices), a bar and liquor store, a medical clinic, a museum, variety stores; and of course, you can purchase fresh fish and lobster from fishermen!

Ideal temperatures all year round: Winter temperatures are generally in the 70's during the day and drop to the 60's at night. Summer daytime temperatures are generally in the 80's and drop to the 70's at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you for such wonderful accommodations, we had a marvelous holiday. In fact, my kids said that it was the BEST holiday we have ever been on. We think the cottage was in a perfect location, we met the friendliest people and we really did have a blessed Christmas holiday. We will definitely be going back to Spanish wells. We felt safe and the locals were very kind and generous.

We went out on the Spanish Wells Ocean Safari, with James and that was just like being in National Geographic. We went Snorkeling, and we went fishing for some lobster and spearfishing. What a truly memorable holiday.

Darryl and Toni were always so kind, and I was thankful that they were at the fast ferry to get us. It made the arrival very smooth!

Thank you so very much for the use of you cottage and we hope to stay there again soon. All the best in 2014!!! May you be filled with health and happiness!!

Good value, clean, comfortable, convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pink Sands Cottage for three extremely relaxing weeks during August and September. The cottage is a very short walk from a sandy beach with clear, warm water. Our five-year-old daughter was very happy swimming and snorkelling in the shallow water and, when the tide was out, playing on the sandbar which is a couple of hundred metres from the shore. The island is only 2 miles long and there are other beaches to visit in very easy access.

The cottage is spacious, clean and well maintained. It has to sea facing balconies. It is also within five minutes walk of a large supermarket, bank and other smaller shops.

The island itself is very quiet and peaceful. All amenities are within close reach of the cottage. Whilst the entire island is easily walkable most people use golf buggies for the short journeys which are required.

During the holiday we spent most of the time swimming and playing on the beach but we also took a snorkelling trip which was fantastic. The trip took in a dive on two separate reefs as well as a visit to a large sandbar where we looked for shells and also swam in the deeper water surrounding the bar. During the trip our host speared a number of lobsters (a local speciality) which he gave us. We baked them in garlic butter for our dinner.

The island has a number of restaurants all of which served good food on those evenings where we didn't want to cook ourselves.

We had a fantastic trip to Spanish Wells and the Pink Sands Cottage and would highly recommend the journey to anyone who wants to completely switch off and relax

Charming Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful vacation in Spanish Wells! And staying at the Pink Sands Cottage was fabulous! Our kids loved playing on the kayaks and we enjoyed the outdoor shower! We especially loved the close convenience of the store and the restaurants. The view of the ocean from the huge porch is stunning. We will certainly come back to Spanish Wells and stay at the Pink Sands Cottage!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Pink Sands has the perfect location: two minutes from the main grocery story, the bank, a restaurant and the small bakery, one minute from the beach. And that part of the beach is the best: there are some trees so you don't need a beach umbrella for shade and the water is clean and shallow. The cottage itself has all the amenities needed for a week and is clean. Downstairs, there is very efficient AC. We rented a golf cart from Harbour Island rentals and went everywhere with it as it is the main mode of transportation on Spanish Wells. The best restaurant on the Island is the Shipyard. Budda's was also enjoyable, but definitely more fast food. It's also at Budda's that you can buy liquor and wine: the selection is quite good and the prices too, especially for rhum. Spanish Wells is a wonderful laid back place, great for a person like me who likes to relax!

Great location and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Pink Sands cottage. It has a prime location walking distance from the grocery store, bank, and restaurant, but most importantly it is a stones throw away from the beach. The whole cottage was decorated very nice and the living room had a great open area to hang out with our group. The place had everything we needed and we would definitely go back and stay there.

Fantastic house, perfect for 2 couples w/ kids

  • 5 of 5

I've just returned from a 4-week stay at Pink Sands Cottage in Spanish Wells. We were two couples with a toddler each and the house was great and very accommodating. My wife and baby stayed in the larger room in the top floor while our friends kept the smaller room downstairs (plus the bathroom) all for themselves. We all had enough space and privacy to do everything we wanted.

The house has pretty much everything you'll need for a fantastic holiday. Fans, french doors, comfortable chairs, utensils, fast wifi connection, etc etc. The only thing missing to make it perfect for me would be a dishwasher (-:

We especially enjoyed the hammock under the coconut trees and the outdoor shower which was the icing on the cake after a full day on the beach.

Unlike many other properties on the island, this wonderful house has a large garden all around it, which adds to the privacy and provides the guests even more space to enjoy and play with the kids.

The location is perfect: in the middle of the island so you can go east or west easily and quickly, couple minutes walk to the supermarket and next door to th drive thru restaurant Eagle's Landing. The beach is only a few steps down a path.

The owners have clearly put a lot of thought and care into creating and decorating their house, which is tastefully colorful and very tropical.

I cannot recommend it enough. If you go, please take care of this special house and island with the love it deserves!
