About the property

Three spacious bedrooms all with their own bathrooms en suite - Sleeps 10

Sunnyside Beach Villa is a lovely, spacious, light, and airy beachfront rental villa directly on a beautiful stretch of sandy beach in Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas. This area is safe, clean, and pristine. The rental offers free use of a large hot tub, stainless steel gas grill, 2-person ocean kayaks, bicycles, and hammock.

The villa rental offers three master suites - each offering its own bedroom, full bathroom, and a 9' expanse of French doors leading onto a spacious covered verandah with excellent views of the beach, sea, and surrounding islands. Likewise, the large, airy, open, great room with cathedral ceilings offers an outstanding beach view from a 16' expanse of sliding glass doors, which also lead unto the large covered verandah overlooking the beach. All renters agree, this villa offers the best beach and ocean views on the entire island from every room! They call it 'a million dollar view.' This villa is bright, cheerful, and comfortable.

This villa rental offers all amenities including a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious living area, open kitchen, central A/C, ceiling fans throughout. This spacious beach villa rental offers more than 115 feet across private beach front, which makes it quite private. (Other homes on the beach offer as little as 36 feet of beach frontage, and some are connected to other apartments.)

Renters here have delighted in catching many bonefish directly in front of Sunnyside Beach Villa. There is also terrific snorkeling, fishing, and diving available in Spanish Wells. Sunnyside Beach Villa includes free use of 2-man ocean kayaks, and bicycles, which are great ways to exexplore the area. (Othewise, kayaks and bicycles are expensive to rent separately.)

Sunnyside Beach Villa is located in a secluded area, but just a few minutes from the conveniences of Spanish Wells including well-stocked grocery stores, restaurants, home bakeries, a nautilus gym, marinas, and more.

Sunnyside 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.

This beach villa rental is a great choice for two - four couples traveling together, one couple looking for a romantic getaway, or a family of up to eight adults and two small children.

Beds: Bedroom 1: 1 king bed, Bedroom 2: 1 king bed and one futon, Bedroom 3: 1 king bed & 1 queen bed.

Sleeps up to four adults and two small children in the 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom split plan main house. For larger parties the adjacent third master suite is also available for up to four persons.

We can help you with reserving fishing charters, snorkeling trips, boat and golf cart rentals, and its best to reserve these at the same time that you reserve the villa. Capt. Smiley, the property manager of Sunnyside Beach Villa, along with his brother Capt. Scuba are licensed captains that enjoy taking our visitors on fishing, snorkeling, boating, and caving excursions. Many of our guests say that their excursion with Capt. Smiley or Capt. Scuba is one of the very best parts of their vacation. The captains also rent boats and golf carts at the best prices in town. Call us to reserve your boat, golf cart, or excursion.

Spanish Wells is the fishing capital of the Bahamas, so there is all kinds of fresh seafood available.There are eight restaurants or take aways, a full liquor store, 3 grocery stores, and five variety stores that sell local goods, souvenirs, and more within 1 mile of Sunnyside. There are also home bakeries for fresh baked goods each day, coffee and pastry cafes, and even homemade fresh ice cream, daiquiris, and smoothies available nearby.

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. One can walk around the island, wade for sand dollars on the north beach, purchase the fresh catch of the day from local fishermen, and browse the centuries-old village. Spanish Wells offers one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas and is considered the fishing capital of The Bahamas. The waters surrounding Spanish Wells offer excellent snorkeling, diving, bone fishing, reef fishing, and deep sea fishing. Spanish Wells is a boater's and fisherman's paradise. Spanish Wells is considered by many to be the most prosperous, clean, pristine, and safe community in The Bahamas.

About Brent Beauregard

We are a local family living in Spanish Wells Eleuthera Bahamas. Our family dates back to the original Eleutheran Adventurers, the first European settlers in The Bahamas, dating back to 1648, who shipwrecked on Devil's Backbone Reef just off of Preacher's Cave in nearby North Eleuthera.. Brian aka Capt. Scuba is a licensed boat captain and works full time as a lobster diver. When not diving commercially for lobsters, he is a local fishing & snorkeling guide, and also offers area tours and cave exploring. (Some have called him the Crocodile Dundee of North Eleuthera.) Brent aka Capt. Smiley is also a licensed boat captain who also offers fishing and snorkeling trips, boat rentals, and golf cart rentals. He is also a local rental property manager. Lorraine is the local North Eleuthera realtor and will be pleased to show you all the best local real estate deals (her listings and all other agents' listings) when you are in town. Just give her a call if you would like any information on the local real estate market or a free real estate tour. We love sharing our piece of Paradise with our new friends.

Brent Beauregard purchased this villa in 2000

Why Brent Beauregard chose Spanish Wells

What can we say? Love at first sight! This property is the widest beach property available in Spanish Wells, so, there is that much more private beach for us and our renters to enjoy. This property is the center of the 2+ mile long pinkish sandy beach. The home was constructed in such a way that all rooms have a fabulous beach and ocean view, and the entire house opens up for the breezes to just blow through. Ahhh .... Paradise!

What makes this villa unique

Sunnyside Beach Villa is very unique in that all the living areas and all the bedrooms offer terrific views. It is also located in the center of this magnificient beach. Sunnyside also offers more beachfront than any other beach rental in the area. It offers 115' of beach front compared to as little as 36 feet across the beach for other nearby rentals. Sunnyside offers 2 ocean kayaks, four bicycles, a stainless barbecue grill, a hammock, a large hot tub with a fanastic beach view and more.

Our stay at Sunnyside was the vacation of a lifetime. Spanish Wells was the ideal location for a true getaway, with a beautiful house, beachfront location, peace and quiet, and a lovely island with wonderful people. We enjoyed our trip with Captain Smiley, which was a wonderful tour and intro-snorkel for the kids. We saw leopard rays, fish, and other fascinating underwater life. The bicycles and kayaks were a great bonus and we enjoyed them almost every day. We were able to take hours- long walks and able to bike to the far end of Russell Island without threat of being run over, a novelty for us city folk! A real treat. We had looked forward to this vacation, but it really exceeded our expectations, which was really just an escape from all that is American east-coast busy-ness. This fit the bill and we cannot wait to return. I could drone on and on, but sha'nt. It was just that good.

We are so looking forward to your return. Sending sunny smiles to you ~ Lorraine, Captain Smiley, and Captain Scuba.

Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

This was a trip of a lifetime. I had been trying to talk my wife into going for several years and finally got her to do it for our 15th Anniversary..... We also decided we couldn't experience this beautiful island without our the 3 kids ( 7 yr old twin girls, 5 yr old son). We all 5 had one of our best experiences ever, from the time we landed in Northern Eleuthera via Pineapple Air to the time Mr. Underwood picked us up at 5:45 AM to take us back across the water to start our return trip. Sunnyside was perfect for a family and was well equiped. The kids and wife loved the kayak and paddle boards. The view from the kitchen/den and back porch were amazing and relaxing. The beach has a short path over the dune from the back of the house to the almost private beach. We might have seen 5 other people at any one time on the whole beach. The kids played almost all day, every day out in the water and in the beautiful soft sand. We ventured out to the sandbar and found shells. We walked out into the less than waist deep water(at low tide) until we couldn't walk anymore.

One day we went out with Captain Smiley and Captain Ron for a snorkeling and fishing trip, which was amazing. They took us all around Egg Island and the kids worked their way out from the beach to swimming around the reef offshore. They even let them run around and the girls do cart wheels on a flat in the middle of the sea. This was their favorite part of the trip. Then we got back on the boat and Capt Smiley helped all 3 kids each catch plenty of fish. These guys made sure we had a great time. Capt Ron even gave us some mahi mahi to take home to cook.

The food on the island is ok. Lots of the same frozen type generic foods at almost every place. Breakfast was good at the restaurant next to the grocery and bank. Shipwrecks near the harbor was very good. We had dinner at the yacht club that was pretty good as well. We cooked a couple of nights and picked up crawfish tails at the fish market by the harbor, which were excellent. We made several trips to the grocery for breakfast and lunch goods and it had everything you could want. It was a little high priced but for just a week and on this great island, it's worth the price.

Overall, we will definitely go back, not sure when but hopefully sooner than later.

Lorraine and Anna-Claire took great care of every detail. Thanks again!

We had rented with another couple, so the house was perfect! Each bedroom had its own bathroom for more privacy! The house was well appointed and had everything we needed. The back porch was wonderful!

The views from the house were a postcard! Just Paradise!! Lorraine was great getting back to us when ever we needed her! We are already planning our next trip! We all can't wait to go back!!! Spanish Wells is a gem and so are the people! We hope it stays that way for a very long time!

Owner's Response: It was great having you all as our guests. I'm happy that you found the house to be well appointed with everything you needed and perfect for your vacation. Sunnyside affords much privacy to couples travelling together as the bedrooms are spread out at opposite ends of the villa and each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The back porch is a lovely place to RELAX and take in the postcard perfect views. Spanish Wells is a safe haven with friendly, helpful people. We are pleased that you are already planning your next trip. We look forward to welcoming you back to Paradise soon :) Lorraine, Capt. Smiley, and Capt. Scuba.

This was our first trip to the Bahamas and were not quite sure what we were in for. Lorraine and her team took care of EVERYTHING for us. She answered my hundreds of questions and made sure that everything went smoothly the entire time. This house is truly amazing and has breathtaking views from every room in the house. It was a large house with plenty of room for the 9 of us to move around in. The porch expands the entire beach side of the property and is awesome for relaxing after a day in the sun. The beach is so clean with a powder pink sand. The water is magical. We had small kids so the water being as shallow as it was made swimming for them allot of fun. We were able to catch Conch and Starfish that were only 5 feet down. I highly reccomend renting the boat from Captin Smiley and the golf cart. Captin Smiley and Captin Scuba were great to work with and gave us all the fishing holes. The locals get around mostly in golf carts, which I would reccomend to get around the Island. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. Be sure to check out Buddahs and the Sand Bar for great food and drinks. I could go on and on about how great everything here is and write a book. Hands down the most beautiful place we have ever been. Thank you Lorraine and the people of Spanish Wells for creating memories that will last a lifetime!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have you as our guests and to take care of EVERYTHING for you. Sunnyside is the only beachfront home in Spanish Wells that offers breathtaking views from every room in the house. Sunnyside is also the largest rental home on this amazing powder pink sand beach. The large beach front verandah offers a lovely place for relaxing and outside dining -- not to mention the massaging hot tub. Yes, the beach is ideal for little ones. The water is shallow, warm, and ever so clear. Captain Smiley had a blast with you all. He's happy to help with boat and golf cart rentals, and fishing/boating instructions. I'm happy that you found all the fishing holes. Glad that you found that Spanish Wells is one of the friendliest places in the world. We're delighted that you found that this is the most beautiful place you have ever been. We couldn't agree more. We were happy to help you create great memories, and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Lorraine, Captain Smiley, and Captain Scuba.

Great Time

  • 4 of 5

I recently rented this home well situated on the best beachfront in Spanish Wells. The home is well outfitted for a large group and everything works..which can be a challenge sometimes in the Bahamas. Lorraine was easy to deal with and the house is as advertised.

Owner's Response: Nice to see you again. Happy that you all had a great time on this trip to Spanish Wells, and the fishing was good. We agree - Sunnyside is situated in the best beachfront location on Spanish Wells. Happy that we had everything at the villa that your group needed, everything was working well, and you found the villa as advertised. Thank you for being our guests for an entire month. I suppose you do really enjoy Sunnyside since you inquired about purchasing it. It was our pleasure to have you as our guests. Thank you for your reservations at Sunnyside for next March / April. We look forward to welcoming you back soon :) Lorraine, Smiley, and Scuba.

Spectacular Views

  • 3 of 5

The views from this home are spectacular!. The beach is great and the home is in a nice location w/ easy access to grocery store/restaurants & Russell island. Unfortunately though the furnishings need updating. Towels literally were raveled at the edges, bedding was thin and out dated. Furnace is over 20 years old (which is probably why in the contract they state they will charge you extra for excess usage and recommend only turning air on periodically as furnace/ blower is ancient/inefficient) (so beware if booking during hot summer months) Outdoor steps off of patio need something on them to prevent slipping as well. Very Very slippery when wet (if you rinse your feet off when you come in from the beach). Again though the view is great, location is great and the home with a few inexpensive upgrades (towels / bedding) would be terrific as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. It doesn't seem that your comments apply to this particular property. Yes, indeed, Sunnyside offers spectacular views, is on an amazing beach, and is close to all amenities and conveniences that Spanish Wells has to offer. Since we take guests comments very seriously and had never received a complaint about towels in the 20 years that we have been renting Sunnyside, when we read the comment that "towels were raveled at the edges", we immediately pulled all towels out of the closets and inspected them. There were more than 60 wash cloths, hand towels, bath towels, and beach towels. Out of more than 60 towels, we found just one beach towel with an one inch section of the hem that had come undone. This comment about the towels does not seem to apply to this property. There is a comment that there is a furnace on the property that is over 20 years old and inefficient. However, there is no furnace on the property at all. As The Bahamas stays relatively warm year round, there would be very few homes in the country that have furnaces. The comment that there is a 20 year old inefficient furnace cannot possibly apply to this property, since there is no furnace. There is also a comment that states " they recommend only turning on the air periodically." Neither the owners nor managers of this property have recommended that guests turn on the air periodically. It would seem that this comment does not apply to this property either. Another comment states that the outdoor steps are very slippery. There are 5 steps from the beach to the seaside verandah, and all guest, for over 20 years of renting, have been able to use these steps with no problems at all. This Homeaway ad for this property provides photos of every room and its furnishings. The photos of the furnishings on the Homeaway ad show the furniture exactly as it is at the villa. We have never had guests expect to find different furniture at the home when they arrive than the furniture shown in the Homeaway ad. The furniture shown in the photos on the Homeaway ad show the furnishings exactly as they are in the home. We promise that we do not have raveled towels or a furnace at this villa. We are just minutes away should our guests need anything. We love hearing from our guests and take what they say seriously.This is why we have had some guests that have been returning to Sunnyside every year for 20 years, and most of our guests are repeat renters.
