The house is located on a spacious corner plot within easy walking distance of a beautiful long beach which never had many people on it. The sea is unbelievably clear and ideal for bathing, even for small children. The characterful Buddha's Bar, Liquor Store and Snack shack is very close, where you are made very welcome. Jan Hollis, the owner...

We had the best two weeks at Tingum! With the house just a quick walk from the beach, we went for long walks every morning... my son had lots of fun shell collecting! My two year old loved the shallow beaches and was able to safely splash and wade in the water with no fear. The house has everything you...

About the neighbourhood
Spanish Wells is located a two hour Fast Ferry (Bo Hengy II) ride or a 17 minute small plane trip from Nassau to N.Eleuthera. Or fly in from Miami or Fort Lauderdale daily, twice weekly from Atlanta, directly to North Eleuthera Airport (ELH). From there a taxi and small ferry to our wonderful family island. Spanish Wells is unique, a fishing village atmosphere on the Harbour side and a beautiful, calm pink sand beach on the other side. Relax at the unpopulated beach or go boating to find your own personal beach on the nearby islands. Bonefish in the shallows or catch some deep sea fish with a guide. Getting around is easy....everything is within walking distance (and its a great way to meet people and explore). Golf Carts are the main mode of transport and renting by the hour, day... more
