Conch Shell Beach Villa offer free use of a 16' motorboat, 2 tandem ocean kayaks, and bicycles. This charming beachfront villa is located in the quiet western area of the beautiful 2.5 mile long delicate pink sand beach of Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, Bahamas. This area of Spanish Wells Bahamas offers some of the best bonefishing in the Bahamas. Conch Shell Beach Villa is located on more than 1.5 acre of beach front property so that it offers much more privacy than most of the beachfront rental properties in the area (which are typically situated on 1/8 acre or less). This lovely vacation villa rental offers a private gated entrance and a large private garden with many coconut palm trees, an abundance of flowering trees, sea grape trees, coco plum trees, and large native Bahamian shade trees. This villa is located in an area of large beachfront estate lots (most 2+ acres) where there is no public beach access; so, this is the most quiet and secluded stretch of beach in Spanish Wells. This beachfront garden is a great place to relax in the hammock and peacefully read a good book.
Captain Smiley is the property manager. He, also, operates Spanish Wells SeaVentures and provides discounts to the Conch Shell Beach Villa guests for Spanish Wells SeaVenture tours. He would be happy to customize a tour just for your group. Here's what some of the guests say about Spanish Wells SeaVentures:
"Can't say enough good things about Capt. Smiley and our snorkeling trip with him. He got a big cooler filled with ice & drinks, we brought along some lunch and snacks, and so began one of the best days ever. We went swimming with the pigs (amazing fun). We went to Egg Island and saw beautiful colorful marine life in really shallow water that the kids could really enjoy. We boated to other islands and beaches, had a beach picnic, found some conch, sand dollars, and amazing shells, snorkeled in beautiful sea gardens, and a couple of us were brave enough to jump off a cliff! I could go on and on, but shan't. We will definitely hook up with Captain Smiley again when we return to Spanish Wells." Michael Goodroe, CA, USA.
“We loved our day away with Captains Ron & Smiley! They took us to deserted beaches, amazingly beautiful reefs, and we even caught a bunch of nice snappers for dinner! They hooked fish for the youngsters and let them reel them in. They were very patient and accommodating. We saw beautiful starfish, a huge ray, many beautiful fish, and as we were going back to the dock at the end of a great day, we saw a group of dolphins - with mamas and babies. Wow what a day! I highly recommend a day away with Spanish Wells SeaVentures. It was the highlight of our trip!" Lorna Palowski, NC, USA.
“We had a great time exploring North Eleuthera with Capt. Scuba. Historic Preacher’s Cave, other hidden caves, a magnificent blue hole, the truly amazing Glass Window Bridge, Queen’s Bath, and he took us to pick fresh mangoes from his farms – delicious! He’s very knowledgeable about the area having grown up “in the bush”! On a different day Capt. Scuba took us spear fishing. (He’s a local commercial lobster diver when he’s not doing tours and fishing trips for folks like us.) We caught groupers, snappers, lobsters, and other fish on which all 5 of us feasted for days. All in all we had two great days with Capt. Scuba.” Mary Monnaco, FL, USA
The Villa:: The interior of the home is decorated in the very colorful island tradition with much of the furniture of wicker and rattan. There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large great room, and a full kitchen.The villa offers every convenience including cable TV, DVD/CD player, washer & dryer, microwave, paddle fans in every room, and air-conditioning throughout. Free unlimited high speed internet is available. There is a very nice sea view from the great room and the kitchen.
There is an expansive covered front porch that offers up a great view. This is a great place to relax and read a book on the chaise lounges in the shade, or to dine outside while taking in the view. Adjacent to the porch is an outside shower so that one can rinse off salt and sand before entering the house.
Extras:: Bicycles and ocean kayaks are offered with the vacation rental with which one can use to explore the area. A 16' new fiberglass boat with motor is also offered for those that love fishing, snorkeling, and sightseeing. With the boat one can explore nearby islets, islands, cays, deserted beaches, and some of the Spanish Wells Bahamas area's most beautiful reefs. The boat is moored right in front of the villa making it very convenient to use at anytime. Otherwise, motor boats, kayaks, and bicycles are expensive to rent separately.
Conch Shell Beach Villa is located on an idyllic beach with powder soft pinkish sand. The beach is calm, tranquil, and warm with no rocks, rough surf, or riptides, and the ocean is so clear you can see your shadow on the bottom.
Fishing charters, snorkeling trips, cave tours, and golf cart rentals are available. It is best to reserve these at the same time as the villa.
Spanish Wells:: The Spanish Wells area is well-known for its great fishing and snorkeling. The Devil's Backbone Barrier Reef is just offshore. Terrific bonefishing can be had right in front of Conch Shell Beach Villa.
In Spanish Wells Bahamas, you will never run out of things to do until you want to. The native Bahamian quilt makers, the local straw vendors & the museum are always fun to visit. A visit with local fishermen as they bring in their fresh catch each day can be both informative and delicious. A trip on the Fast Ferry to nearby Harbour Island is a delight, and you won't want to miss the local restaurants, the new gym, the bakeries, and the best fishing and snorkeling that the Bahamas has to offer.
Spanish Wells is reminiscent of an idyllic Cape Cod fishing village with swaying coconut palm trees and bright bougainvillea as background. Winding little roads lead a visitor around brightly painted cottages sporting gables and wooden shutters.
