Walls are adorned with paintings, knick knacks and a stunning wood carving which highlight the originality and colour of the Bahamian spirit through art.

An open lawn invites you to relax on the hammock or take in some sun on the lounge chairs. Tropical foliage has been planted to enclose the garden in a sea of greenery in the future. Sit on the cosy front porch with your morning coffee and enjoy waking up with nature.

The beach is ten minutes away by foot and just around the corner by golf cart or bike. Personal beach chairs and an ice chest are available in the cottage for you to take for your beaching pleasure. The white sand beach stretches for over 2 miles, perfect for enjoying the ocean breezes and taking in the stunning water view. At low tide the sand banks extend right out to sea leaving new shelling opportunities daily.

To stay in touch with the outside world there are televisions in the living and bedroom with Cable service and a Sirrus XM radio. There is an Ipod docking station and wireless Internet with a high speed connection so be sure to pack your I-pod and laptop.

About Linda Eldon

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

Why Linda Eldon chose Bahamas

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!!

What a Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

We love this adorable house! Our two week stay in March was wonderful. In addition to being very clean, all amenities needed for a great vacation are provided, making this a very comfortable house. The house is nestled in a quiet area with great neighbors. The lovely landscaping provides privacy and a great view from the windows. Centrally located, all of Spanish Wells is easily accessible. We definitely recommend staying at the Breezy Island Cottage and can't wait to return next year.

Amazing island getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Sea Catch! Super easy location and very easy to get around the island. It's very close to the grocery store, and Sea Catch really had anything/everything you'd need to enjoy all that Spanish Wells has to offer. Lorraine and Linda were SO helpful and kind, thank you! Comfortable bedroom, living area and kitchen with plenty of space!

A housekeeping comment - we'd recommend trimming down the vegetation on the entry walkway a little bit! :)

Landed in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If there were a higher rating than 5 stars, this cottage would receive it! Perfect island getaway. The cottage had everything you may need and want. Clean, well equipped and a great location. We enjoyed sunrises every morning and sunset every night. Thank you Linda and rick for the use of you island paradise home. We were married on the beach at sunset staying here made all our dreams come true. We will be back to celebrate our anniversary every year.

Awesome, comfortable and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

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!

We look forward to your next visit.

Hidden Gem on Spanish Wells

  • 4 of 5

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!

Spanish Wells
Car: not necessary

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.
