About the property

Newer Build Single Story Beachfront House with Deck Overlooking Bay

Amberjack House is located right on the Northside Beach in Spanish Wells, Bahamas. If you are not familiar with the Northside Beach, it is one of the most beautiful, quiet, serene stretches of shoreline in the world. It's a sleepy beach with no crowds, white sand, and crystal clear water.

The house has three bedrooms and two baths, is 2100 square ft, and sleeps eight comfortably in beds (with 2 additional pull out beds for 10 guests). The master bedroom, living room, and dining room each have a set of french doors that open up to a large deck that overlooks the beach.

This home features wide open living spaces, vaulted ceilings, wall to wall tile floors throughout, a modern, state-of-the-art kitchen, and very nice, yet comfortable furnishings. It is fully air conditioned. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cookware and dishes for a crowd. There are four flatscreen TV's and several DVD players, one in the living room and one in each bedroom. The house was built in 2008, which is very new for Spanish Wells. There is also free wifi with signal boosters so that you can get a wifi signal throughout the house and on the beach.

In 2016, we added a new boardwalk and beach deck from the house deck that extends directly to the edge of the beach. It's perfect for coffee in the morning, watching the kids play on the beach in the afternoon, and cocktails in the evening. It's really nice for when you want to hang out on the beach but don't feel like trekking all your stuff out into the sand. You just stroll down the boardwalk and kick back on one of our Adirondack chairs.

We also provide two Hobie Lanai kayaks and a paddle board.

What sets our house apart from other beach house rentals on Spanish Wells? The open floor plan, large covered deck, and the boardwalk to our beach side deck. The large rooms and open floor plan are unique for the island. Most of the beach fronts are older homes with tiny rooms. And very few of the newer homes have an open living room / dining room / kitchen area that opens up to a large, shaded beach deck. And the house is the only rental home that we know of on Spanish Wells that has a boardwalk that extends down to a beach side deck.

The house is located on 11th St right on the beach on the north side of the island. Note that there is a cemetery on Main Street from 10th to 11th. The cemetery is behind the house opposite the beach. It's a very pretty, very old little cemetary. It's quiet and provides extra privacy for the house. The landscaping behind our house hides it completely from view.

To get to Spanish Wells from the US, you want to fly to the North Eleuthera airport (ELH). There are direct flights from Atlanta, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Nassau. The house is about 30 minutes from the airport via taxi and water taxi.

We spend about six weeks per year at Amberjack House. Since we spend so much time there, we've tried to make it as nice and comfortable as possible so that we can really enjoy ourselves while on vacation. Hopefully you will find our beach house as fun and relaxing as we do!

About Ryan

We (Ryan & Heidi) are from Columbus, Ohio and have two young children (Miles and Mason).

Ryan purchased this house in 2014

Why Ryan chose The Bahamas

The beach of course! The floor plan is really nice too. It's great to have everything on one floor. We also really like the large, shaded deck that overlooks Northside Beach as well as our new beachside deck that is right on the beach. It's also within easy walking distance of just about everything in Spanish Wells. And finally, the fact that it is a newer build (2008) is a big plus. Many of the homes in Spanish Wells are rather old.

The large rooms and open floor plan are unique for the island. Most of the beach fronts are older homes with very small rooms. And very few of the newer homes have an open living room / dining room / kitchen area that opens up to a large beach deck.

The large deck that overlooks the beach is also rare on the island. And the house is the only rental home that we know of on the island that has a boardwalk that extends down to the edge of the beach with a deck right on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The beach, single story, location, french doors to the large shaded deck, very open floor plan, and boardwalk down to the beach deck that is right on the beach.

Our best VRBO experience... Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Simply put: 5 stars is not enough! We found paradise!

Ryan was prompt and thorough answering questions and Amerjack website had us well prepared before arrival, yet it still surpassed expectations!

House: beautiful, spacious, well equipped and comfortable in an idyllic setting on a stunning beach.

Extras like filtered water cooler, plentiful bath & beach towels, toilet paper, soaps games, puzzles, kayaks, paddle board, loads of beach floats, beach/deck chairs and more made everything relaxing, fun and carefree for our 3-generation family (4 adults + 7 & 10 year olds)..

Decks: covered deck and deck with umbrella by the beach were perfect for getting out of the sun or staying out during brief rains.

Beach: quiet, beautiful with sandy bottom and shallow (rarely more than 3') for a long way out. Tide pools at low tide were a special treat for kids.

Spanish Wells: charming, friendly, totally laid back, relaxing, casual atmosphere. Golf carts a treat. We especially liked The Sandbar and Budda's restaurants (and Papa Scoops for ice cream!).

Unless you're looking for a place with lots of action, Amberjack and Spanish Wells are not to be missed! We totally loved it and thank Ryan and Heidi for sharing this exceptional rental!

Wonderful relaxing getaway place.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this house and all of the amenities offered therein. So relaxing. The view, Oh my goodness...the pictures do not do it justice. This is a must visit location. The only thing that I would recommend is to install large mirrors in the extra bedrooms. We were six adults and it was hard to finish getting ready to go out (to diner) in the bedrooms while someone else was showering without mirrors. The master suite was exceptional and the beds, oh so comfortable! April, 2018
