“Outstanding home near idyllic beach.”

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 of Tingum couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming and the few mkinor problems which cropped up were sorted almost before they happened. 'Tingum' itself became our home for almost 3 months. It is beautifully fitted out with everything you could possibly need. The house is spacious, cool, light and airy with very comfortable beds and furniture, ample towels and other linens. The decor is clean and light with some nice pieces of artwork. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the converted garage with its lattice screen when it was too hot to sit in the pleasant garden. We came to Spanish Wells as tourists but left feeling we had become friends and part of the community. Our heartfelt thanks to Jan for making us so welcome.

Thank you Sylvia and Alan for your wonderful review of Tingum cottage and Spanish Wells. You fit so well to island living and found the tranquility of our little piece of paradise. It was such a pleasure to have you stay for an extended stay and I can say I have gained friends. You made Tingum your home and left it immaculate. Thank you! Miss you!!

“Perfect home away from home!”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

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 could need in the kitchen, and a bbq outside. The supermarket on Spanish Wells was well stocked, we ate healthy and well! Fresh fish and lobster from the fishermen, conch salad and conch fritters from the stand on the side of the road. Tingum has airconditioning, which we never used as there are fans in every room, and big windows that bring the Bahama breeze throughout the house. We even had fresh limes from a tree outside!
Jan was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed, and was quick to answer any questions.
Being able to just enjoy our family time together and relax, made this an amazing vacation.

“Exceeded our expectations and made the whole trip wonderful!”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Our first impression of our rental began as soon as the plane touched down, as Jan had arranged transportation that was waiting for us at the airport, including our water taxi. Jan was at the dock waiting for us with our golf cart...she made the logistics flawless! The house was centrally located, lovely and spotless. We hosted a small dinner party with newly made friends on the island and everything we needed to cook and serve for eight was there.

Jan is the best thing about this home. She knows the island and where to go, visit, shop and eat on surrounding islands also. A true island gem indeed!
