We are a family of five, Rick and Linda with daughters Kristin, Karen and Laura. We are Bahamians born and raised who love our country and truly believe it is better in the Out Islands of the Bahamas!!
Linda Eldon purchased this cottage in 2013
Rick's father and mother hail from Eleuthera, his mother from Harbour Island and father from Current. We have been visiting Spanish Wells for the past four years and each visit gave us a stronger appreciation for the people and life in Spanish Wells especially the true spirit of community that is so rare in the world these days. When looking to invest in this special island we kept coming back to Sea Catch. A special place that we felt not only could make an excellent rental but a place we could also call our vacation home and one day our home.
Close to the beach, off the main street making it so very quiet, spacious open floor plan, outside living areas, bicycles with rental, tropical foliage, cross breezes due to being on ridge, all the amenities
To all of our wonderful guests, thank you!
We have finally made it 'home' again - our first time here since October 2014. When I walked in the door I was so happy to be in our little cottage!! We have had so many wonderful people visit over the past year, it's been a pleasure getting to know you through emails and phone calls. We have had so many positive comments both about Sea Catch and Spanish Wells, this is a very unique place to vacation. Our little home has been very well taken care of and we thank you all for that. Our whole family was in Spanish Wells this trip - Rick, me, Kristin, Dwayne, Karen, Mario, Laura and our grands Amarie and Isla. We've had a couple rough things to deal with as a family since August 2014 so being together in this very special place has been a healing experience for us (no not all of us in Sea Catch ;) )
I have updated the VRBO comments from our guest book. We had a hard time finding it when we arrived so I think some people have stayed and not even know of it's existence. Possibly if you are reading this and would like to share your memories of your vacation please leave a review.
Thank you so much everyone!!
Sea Catch is an awesomely amazing cottage. It has everything you could ever want to cook with in the kitchen, which blessed me because we cook when we're on vacation. The cottage was clean, well maintained and the bed is so comfortable. There is a DVD player, TV in bedroom and living room, comfy sofa and love seat. MP3 and other items for your pleasure. The pergola was a restful place to be outside with chaise lounges, dining table and chairs. The front porch is another place to relax and see the area. Everything is pretty much in walking distance or by golf cart to Sea Catch; grocery store and Kathy's Bakery 5 minute walk and the grocery store delivers for a very small $5 fee. I would go back to Sea Catch in a heartbeat! It was an awesome 10 night stay. The owner Linda is a very nice person who responded to all emails promptly during the reservation and question period. While there we had no real issues other than no toilet paper and the store would not open until three days later, but the manager, Lorraine came through with toilet paper for us soon after she was called. You will enjoy your stay in Spanish Wells and a Sea Catch! By the way there is guestbook that lists all the restaurants and other services on the island. We ate once at the Sand Bar and the food was good even for vegans as we are:-). Veggie burger and fries and a no cheese, no meat pizza..yummy!
My wife and I along with our two young sons stayed in Sea Catch for 8 days in July of 2016. Sea Catch is very well maintained and is located on a wonderful place on the island. It is perfect for a couple or small family of 4. From the time you arrive you can see the amount of time and caring that the owners have put into the property, it is beautifully decorated and has lots of natural light. The house is well stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Spanish Wells, whether you visit the local eateries or cook your own meals. Spanish Wells is a perfect place to go and relax and enjoy the local life on the island, everyone is friendly and will help you find anything your looking for. Everyone waves to each other and the laid back island life is the way to go.
The beaches are spectacular and renting a boat to get out to the reef is very easy to do.
We thoroughly enjoyed the island, the people, and the house
I would recommend Sea Catch to anyone traveling to Spanish Wells!
Returning to Spanish Wells after 47 years to a jewel such as this has been a true gift. How grateful I am to the Eldons for sharing their dear cottage where I relived happy memories from so long ago. I wish them the same for many years to come.
Linda organised our taxi and ferry to her charming cottage and all went smoothly. the cottage is very well equipped, comfortable and homely. the breeze on all sides was very refreshing. we really enjoyed the golf buggy, would have been difficult without it. the cottage was in a lovely neighborhood and the island being quite small means it doesn't take long to get anywhere.
The cottage is well maintained and clean and we would definitely recommend this property to others.
My wife and I stayed ay Sea Catch at the end of April. We both fell in love with home as well as the island almost immediately. The island is full of friendly people who will help you out as much as they can. As well as the neighbour across the street who will make you feel right home. Special thanks to the owners for letting us stay in their awesome home as well as Lorranie and the two captains for making our stay that more special.
My wife and I stayed in Sea Catch along with our 2 year old son this past March 2014. The first thing I would like to say is that Sea Catch is a home rather than a rental house. From the moment you enter the house you can see a lot of love and dedication has been put into the decoration and upkeep of the home. It is beautifully decorated and has lots of natural light. The owners have done everything they can to make our stay as pleasant as possible and everything works in the house from the tv's to the blenders to the VHF radio to the golf cart. It is a chefs dream with every little toy you could need to have wonderful home cooked meals. Love and care into everything for sure. It nestled comfortably into a neighborhood in the Center of Spanish Wells and we enjoyed meeting the neighbors and seeing real life unfold on this special Island. Spanish Wells was a perfect get away for us and was very relaxing. Getting around on golf carts was fun and my 2 year old could not have been happier. Everyone waves to each other and laid back island life is the way to go for us. Couple of good restaurants including Shipyard for dinner and Buddha's bus for lunch.
The beaches are spectacular and there is a wonderful park in the west end for the kiddies.
Linda and Rick are amazing hosts and went as far as leaving some milk in juice for us in the fridge for our arrival…!!
I would highly recommend Sea Catch and is a true Hidden Gem in the heart of Spanish Wells.
Spanish Wells is community on the island of St. George's Cay, located at the northern tip of Eleuthera in the beautiful Bahamas. Spanish Wells is approximately two miles long and half a mile wide. The island has been extended by a bridge linking it to neighboring Russell Island. Spanish Wells has a population of approximately 1,500 residents. The people of Spanish Wells are known for their hard work, community spirit, friendliness, and strong principles. Historically, the island was used as a last stop for Spanish ships returning to Europe, where these ships refilled their water supply from wells created for this purpose.
Spanish Wells is predominantly a fishing village and is referred to as the fishing capital of The Bahamas. The main catch harvested from the sea by the fishermen is the Bahamian crawfish similar to lobster. Spanish Wells is an innovative community with a wide array of products and services available. Almost everything needed for modern day to day living can be obtained on the island.
Residents take great pride in their island. This is reflected in the upkeep of their homes and gardens which are landscaped with creativity and precision. Other than vehicles the most common mode of transport is by golf carts. Locals and guests leave their doors unlocked as crime is nonexistent. The local language is English spoken with somewhat of a British accent
There is a varied transportation system within St George’s which ensures goods and passengers flow to and from not only The Bahamas but the rest of the world. There are many avenues that provide this essential service, including freight and passenger boats that come directly to the island. There are direct flights into North Eleuthera airport from major airports in Florida. Once arriving in Eleuthera there is a 15 minute drive to Jean's Bay Dock then a 10 minute ferry to Spanish Wells. There are many direct flights from Europe and the United States into Nassau with daily flights from various carriers into North Eleuthera. The ‘Bo Hengy’ is a vital fast ferry service that provides daily trips into Spanish Wells in the morning returning back to Nassau in the afternoon, a lovely 2 ½ hour cruise with wonderful ocean views in air-conditioned comfort or on the open air deck if you prefer.
The island boasts a modern grocery store with all the products one will find at home, along with native grown fruits and vegetables specialty jams and baked goods such as homemade bread and johnny cake. Fresh fish and crawfish are available in town. There are many snack bars and restaurants to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner, predominately serving Bahamian and American fare. The newest dining attraction is a sit down waterfront experience with a high end menu and exotic drink selection.
Spanish Wells has a very charming and inviting appeal which keeps the visitors returning. This is no tourist trap; people that visit become friends of the island and keep coming back to enjoy life as it used to be.
