Paradiso oasis – beautiful beachfront oasis… – vrbo electricity edison

Welcome to the out islands of the Bahamas. Nestled between the palms on a 2 mile strech of dusted white and pink sand beach. Paradiso Oasis is a getaway unlike any other. Water sports haven, fishing above and below the warm waves, and local flair to boot. Just around the corner lies adventure or a empty beach, what are you waiting for?

Paradiso Oasis is conveniently located on a secluded street, surrounded by palm trees and sea lettuce. This paradise can sleep up to 14 guests, with three main bedrooms on the first and second floors, and an open third floor sleeping 8 with single beds and a couple of sofas. Each room has personal A/C units. The three main bedrooms have full baths, with two half baths on the first and third floors. Paradiso is the only three story house on Spanish Wells, with wrap-around porches on all three levels. The house has a full state-of-the-art kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, a laundry room, an outdoor shower, and a flat-screen TV perfect for family movie nights. There is wifi, as well as a magic jack phone and a local phone, located in the office on the second floor.

Paradiso Oasis is nestled on the beach, the perfect place to spend a day wading in the crystal clear blue waters and pink sands. There are paddle boards, kayaks, and bikes available. Because the island is 2 miles long and a quarter-mile wide, golf carts are the main means of transportation on the island. They can be rented from Harbourside rentals and Mr. Bruce Pinder the caretaker, will meet you and show you where that is and accompany your party to the house.. Snorkel gear can be purchased on the island, but bringing your own is encouraged. Arrangements can be made for deep sea fishing trips and excursions to nearby islands. Car rental is available on the main island, for exploring the other settlements and the blue hole swimming area. Tippys restaurant by Governors Harbor is a lovely place for lunch.

North Eleuthera is an archipelago unlike any in the Bahamas, situated on the Dutch Bar, deep sea fishing is world famous! Find untouched beaches on uninhabited islands that fulfill your shelling and sun bathing needs. Or take the fast ferry 25 mins to Harbour Island and discover the candy colored colonial homes and famed pink sand beaches.

This beautiful Villa was finished in October 2015. My family came to visit in the year 1990 and ended up staying on boats in the Harbour and cruising all the islands. My mother in law Granny Goose sailed single handed until she was in her mid 80’s. When she slowed down other family members started buying homes on this very special island. I arrived in 2000 and bought a small home at the beginning of the island in the Shipyard area. It is over a 100 years old and I lived there for many years watching the boats move in and out. A few years later my husband and I bought a larger home at the west end of the island. We just love the peacefulness and serenity of this family island with the healing waters so clear and inviting to swim every day and eat some wonderful fresh fish. Fish can be purchased from Ronald’s Seafood near the Service Center or from Bernard at his dock near the bridge crossing to Russell Island. As long as you don’t eat too many fried conch fritters this is as healthy a living as it gets. Paradise !!!

The house is exactly as pictured with incredible views from the each of the 3 story wrap-around porches. Our stay was 2 families, total of 9 people, and the house was very spacious with 3 “master” bedrooms and a loft with several single beds. The only downside I can even mention is that electricity is very expensive on the island. We were advised to only use the air conditioning in the bedrooms for sleeping and otherwise keep the windows open for air and we still went over the allotment of $150 for the week by $125.

We travelled to Nassau and then took Pineapple Air to North Eleuthera Airport. From there, Pinder Taxi Service transported us by van to the dock and then took us by ferry to the island. The charge was $15pp. The other option is to fly directly into North Eleuthera airport and I believe Delta, United and possibly American fly into this airport.

We used and highly recommend Jody Pinder (Captain Kid and Sons). Our first excursion was to Eleuthera where we enjoyed unique sites and learning about the history of the island. Sites visited: Blue/Sapphire hole, Preachers Cave, Hatchet Bay Caves, Glass Windows Bridge, Queen’s Bath and driving through the various communities. Our 2nd excursion was a boat trip with snorkeling, sand dollar beach and swimming with the pigs. This was our favorite and Jody made it really interesting and fun as well. Our teen kids also made friends with some of the local kids and were invited to a slip and slide party followed by jumping off the bridge to Russell Island.

For finer dining, the Shipyard was definitely our favorite for both food and atmosphere. Wrecker’s was also good food and atmosphere. Our favorite casual spot was Budda’s and we ate there several times. And one of our favorite stops was Papa Scoops on 12th street where 2 flavors of soft serve ice cream are served daily from 7p-10p.

John and Rosemary are the homeowners and while we did not get the opportunity to meet them since they were not on the island during our stay, they were most helpful and responsive with information to our questions leading up to our stay. Bruce, the property manager, was incredibly helpful and always just a text away.

The house is located in a secluded location on the island of Spanish Wells. Spanish Wells is just a short boat ride from Gene’s Bay, North Eleuthera, and Gene’s Bay is a short 10 minute ride from the airport The house is right on the pink sand beach, with clear waters perfect for swimming and enjoying the sun. The house boasts wrap around porches on all three levels, with an amazing view of the sunrise and sunset on all floors. From the third floor, you can view the beautiful island and surrounding islands to the East, West, and South, as well as the deep blue Caribbean Ocean to the North. This island is home to the famous Bone Fishing beach of the Bahamas, as well as many other water activities including kite boarding, paddle boarding, and kayaking. Scuba diving, hookah diving, deep sea fishing, free diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, and spearing are among the many activities to take part of on this island. The Queens Baths are located on Eleuthera near the Glass Window bridge. They are natural pools of water created by the surf in the rocks, very beautiful. There are 4 or 5 restaurants with happy hour on the island, and at the Yacht Haven Marina there is wonderful Wreckers Restaurant and bar. There are also smaller restaurants on the island, including easy-going snack spots. Internet is available at some of these locations. In addition, the supermarket has deliveries every Wednesday when the shelves are stocked for Thursday shopping and stocking up for the weekend. Preachers Cave sits on the main island of Eleuthera where the original travelers were shipwrecked on Devils Backbone and lived in the cave until they discovered the fresh water wells on Spanish Wells. Bicycles will take you there, and you can also swim in the Blue hole which is across the road and stunningly beautiful, a must see !!
