About the property

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

Pink Sands Beach Cottage is a very charming 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 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: 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), bars and liquor stores, 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!!

Clean, comfortable cottage, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and comfortable and well-maintained with mosquito screens and good A/C. It is perfectly located - close to the beach, large supermarket and other amenities - and is not noisy because it is off the main street. Toni met us at the dock, took us back there at the end of our stay, and was generally very helpful. The only slight negative is the spiral staircase to the upper floor which is difficult for older people to manage and means you cannot take heavy luggage upstairs. Also the upstairs shower does not drain very well. Overall though, this is a great property and we would definitely recommend it and hope to return soon.

We loved Spanish Wells and its friendly people, had a wonderful half day on the water with Jody Pinder (Capt. Kid) and tried two restaurants - The Shipyard and Wreckers, both good. Walking the beach was a delight and running around in a golf cart a lot of fun, although you wouldn't have to have one all the time because the cottage is so well situated.

Nice house close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 8 days which was slightly too long as the island is very small. Nice house, perfect for a family with up to three kids. Book your golf-car well in advance.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay in this beautiful beachy house. We brought our friends over who came from New Zealand (us Nassau), they had an awesome time and didn't want to leave the house!. Everything in the house was lovely and colorful . Everything you needed in the kitchen was there!

Seconds away from the beach which was great. Would definitely come back!

Thank you Nadine!

Best Place to stay in Spanish Wells

  • 5 of 5

Pink Sands Beach Cottage is one of those very rare places to stay where the pictures and verbiage on line are understated. I have been coming to Spanish Wells at least once a year since 1983 and I have stayed at almost every rental beach home in Spanish Wells. This home is by far the best deal. I am 70 and brought my 15 year old daughter with her 15 year old friend. The exterior of the home is eye catching and fits perfectly with the pastel décor of most Spanish Wells homes. It is beautiful. The interior of the home is even prettier. It had 3 of the typical overhead A/C units, and they cooled the place down in a big hurry. We used the kitchen for most breakfasts and dinner and it was very well equipped. Could have used a few more knives, forks, and spoons, but enough to work with. We used the charcoal grill and they had a handheld chimney device which made it very easy to light the charcoal. The location is perfect. Although it is not directly on the beach, the beach and the water are very visible from the ground or the second floor. There are two balconies on the sea side, upstairs and downstairs. It is literally less than 200 yards from the food store parking lot, Eagle's landing restaurant, and Kathy's bakery ( must get the Johnny cakes and homemade bread). about two minute's drive in a golf cart from many other restaurants, and less than one minute from Papa scoops ice cream where we ate ice cream almost every night after dinner. They have two flavors every night and they advertise the two flavors on a handmade poster each day. Best ice cream on the planet, no matter which flavor you choose. There were coconut palms in the yard with fallen coconuts under them. I took my dive knife and opened one the second day. sweetest coconut I've ever tasted. The milk tasted like coconut flavored sugar water, sweetest I've ever tasted. The local manager Toni was very helpful and brought our luggage to the house in her car from the ferry boat dock. We had rented a golf cart and it was waiting for us at the dock. Everything in the house worked, and it would be very hard to find a complaint. The upstairs was perfect for two teenage girls, very bright and colorful, nice bathroom, and great views of the beach and the Atlantic. We rented a boat, got some seafood, and went to Meek's patch to feed the pigs. The result was a wonderful vacation that we will never forget.

To sum it up, this was, by far, the best place we've ever stayed at in Spanish Wells, or anywhere else.

Pink Sands Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was excellent. Clean, everything perfect. Toni was so nice and very helpful, and her homemade bread was to die for. We plan on a return visit to Spanish Wells, and would certainly stay at Pink Sands

Wonderful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a week's stay at this cottage. The previous reviews are correct - it's a fantastic location just one house back from a stunning, picture perfect beach with incredible powdery sand and crystal clear, calm water.

The house itself is open and bright and we loved having two separate baths & floors for ourselves and our 2 teens. There's a great water view from the upstairs balcony where we enjoyed reading and a soft breeze. The house has a washer/dryer at your disposal, bicycles which come in handy to get around, 3 kayaks and a relaxing hammock. Inside, the house is well outfitted and the kitchen does have most things that you would need to prepare a meal at home, although some items have seen better days. We had to purchase our own paper products like napkins, paper towels, saran wrap, tissues etc. which was a bit of a pain but the supermarket is a quick 2 minute walk. (Along with an ATM, bakery and restaurant).

We loved the small town feel of the Spanish Wells community and everyone we met was incredibly friendly. We only rented a golf cart for part of the time, and when we were walking around on our days without it, we were often offered rides by the locals which was nice. Be aware that the cost of food, both in the store and restaurants is more expensive than you probably find at home - but that's to be expected on an island with everything being brought over via boat.

All in all, it was an extremely relaxing vacation in an idyllic spot and the house is a wonderful choice for a couple or small family. Nadine was very easy to communicate with while setting up the rental and she kindly provided all the info and local contacts we needed prior to arrival. We would definitely return again!
