About Jan Hollis

I have lived in the Bahamas for 20 years. First in Harbour Island, then Eleuthera. The last 8 years in Spanish Wells. For me it is PERFECT! Safe, beautiful, friendly, the best of all the out islands.

Jan Hollis purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jan Hollis chose Spanish Wells

there are no big resorts in Spanish Wells. Its a place to unwind, relax and catch up on quality family time. The community is hardworking and independent, to the point where the power plant is island-owned. For a small population of less than 2000, Spanish Wells provides good groceries...weekly from the US.

Great accommodations , beaches , friendly people and easy to get around using golf carts

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I visited for first time to the Bahamas. Jan answered all my questions promptly. Arrangements made for us with taxi from airport to ferry and then a golf cart waiting for us with Melinda who accompanied us to the house and showed us around . She is a peach, knows the island well . The house has easy access to everything you need and there is a great informational folder regarding resteraunts, stores, activities etc.. loved the beaches. Sand doesn’t get hot ,water warm.

Very Nice Vacation House in Spanish Wells!

  • 5 of 5

My wife Mischa and I shared this 2 bedroom, hilltop home with her sister and brother-in-law for a week long stay in Spanish Wells and were very comfortable there. The location is right in the center of things at Spanish Wells, with most of the restaurants, stores, and bank just a short walk away. The home is nicely furnished, and has been updated fairly recently as well. The reasonable rent charged during the holiday season makes "Tingum" a great choice for those desiring a nice, reasonably priced place to stay in Spanish Wells during the winter season.

Great house on a pleasant island with beautiful beaches

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week with our young daughter in this beautiful and spacious house. It is very well equipped, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden and located near the long powder sand beach. The assistance and communication with the friendly owner was excellent - during our stay with the help to organize any desired activity, e.g., a trip on Eleuthera with rental car, as well as before our vacation with planning the journey. Very much appreciated, we would definitely come again.

Nearest Airport
7 Miles
North Eleuthera (ELH)
Nearest Restaurant
0.1 Miles
The Gap 1 min.

The house is literally a two minute stroll from the pristine, powder sand beach.

Spanish Wells is a tiny island 50 + miles from Nassau, off the northern tip of Eleuthera. The perfect place to spend a safe relaxing non-resort vacation.

Spanish Wells is a fishing village with friendly hard working helpful people. The most immaculate of all the out islands with good grocery stores and infrastructure.

Fishing is amazing whether bone-fishing in the shallows, reef fishing or deep sea fishing. Snorkeling...beautiful reefs of fish and corals in crystal clear water. Guides and boats can be arranged and customized to your needs.

Bicycles and Golf Carts can be rented but not necessary to get around on Spanish Wells.

You can plan day trips to explore other islands. Car rentals for Eleuthera are necessary and can be arranged. Take the Fast Ferry to Harbour Island for a few hours exploration or travel 'across the land' by boat/taxi/boat for a full days outing.
