Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Jaime and her husband were wonderful hosts, and the property was spectacular! As this was my first time visiting Spanish Wells (was having a little anxiety), Jaime made sure that a taxi was waiting for me as soon as I got of the flight. The taxi driver then ensured that I made it to the Ferry, and then took me across to Spanish Wells. When I arrived on Spanish Wells, Jaime and her husband were both waiting for me on the dock! By that time, my anxiety was long gone because I felt taken care of. Jaime and her husband, then escorted me to their beautiful property. The posted pics do it no justice!

I only stayed on the island for 2 days (Feb 16th & 17th) - I was there for my brother's wedding - but Jaime's place was one of the highlights! Every break I got from doing my brotherly "wedding duties", I went back to the property just to relax. One can sit on the deck to watch the sunrises & sunsets. In between; take a short walk to the Sand Bar to have a few drinks, come back to the property to play cards (or one of the other games they have in the drawer beneath the television), watch the game, chat with the really nice neighbors, take the provided golf card into town, and then drink some more!

Thank you so much, Jaime, for making my stay a memorable one...can't wait to come back!

If you are asking yourself if you should book this place go ahead and make the decision and book! It is fantastic! You literally walk outside and are standing over the water. Kayaks are there for your use and we were able to explore awesome spots close to the house. We snorkeled right outside the house and saw a lion fish. Right down the street there is wonderful snorkeling. The bed is extremely comfortable. The showers have hot water. I absolutely love this place. Coffee pot, microwave, oven and stove. Just run to the Food Fair on the golf cart and pick up a few things. The hosts, Jaime and Shannen, are great! They went above and beyond to make our stay special and memorable. They are A+ hosts. Can't say enough good things. Very responsive. And again, the house, the property-- wonderful. I highly recommend this place. Look no further!!

Your own slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many good things to say about Beachfront Waters Edge Cottage. First and foremost, Jaime and Shennon are awesome hosts. They are there anytime to help with anything you need. Our stay was delayed in Florida for a few hours due to storms and Silver Airlines but Jaime was on phone and email the whole time making sure somebody would be at the airport to get us to the dock. Staying here you will not have to worry about rushing to the grocery and liquor stores. This rental is so equipped and ready that you can have a drink, a little something to eat, and coffee the next morning, all waiting when they show you to your Cottage. The inside of the cottage has a roomy fridge, comfortable furniture, and GREAT MATTRESSES! Sleeping with the windows open and a salty breeze blowing over you is an awesome feeling. Comes with SUP boards and kayaks which are fun, and beachcombing is just steps away at low tide. The location of the cabana is on the west end of Russell island, so the SandBar is within walking/buggy/swimming distance if you need a Hurricane soon, but Spanish Wells is a pleasurable buggy ride away for anything else. My wife and I stayed for three weeks and it was tough to leave. We had such a great time.

Lovely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights at Waters Edge cottage and were very happy with our choice. Jaime has updated many things that didn’t show in the photos when I made the reservation. There is a new loveseat and chairs in the dining room ( very tasteful), the beds in both bedrooms have very comfortable mattresses, the interior is bright, fresh and clean. The deck facing south overlooking the ocean has a spectacular view. A railing has been installed, along with a sun shade that is suspended over the table. We had great swimming right at Waters Edge until the wind picked up the last days of our stay. There are other beaches nearby which we also enjoyed. There are a number of choices for eating out on Spanish Wells, and we had some tasty meals. There is a supermarket on the island that was well stocked - and fresh fish can be purchased right off the boat. We ate in most nights, sitting on the deck, watching the sunset and then the stars. The golf cart provided with the rental was all we needed to get around - and also found a stretch of beach for swimming and snorkeling within walking distance. The Sandbar is also a short walk— good food and delicious drinks. Jaime was an attentive hostess - responding promptly to my questions and offering suggestions that made our stay even better.

It’s a perfect location to sit on the deck which is on the water and watch the world go by.
