Spanish Wells, Eleuthera
Darrin Sands has lived in Spanish Wells, Eleuthera for the last 30 years. He was born and raised in the Bahamas. He is married to Becky Sands and they have 3 children. He enjoys meeting new people and is committed to offering professional assistance to his clients.
Currently, (2006) Spanish Wells is a center for lobster fishing in the Bahamas. Darrin has been involved in this trade for the past 26 years, gaining extensive knowledge of the trade and the archipelago of the Bahamas. Darrin is also an airplane pilot who loves to fly his plane from island to island in his free time.
Spanish Wells is a small island (about half a mile wide by 2 miles long), located off the northern tip of Eleuthera Island, in the Bahamas. Historically, the island was used as a last stop for Spanish ships returning to Europe, where these ships refilled their water supply from wells created for this purpose - thus the English name of the island: Spanish Wells.
The first colonists were the Eleutheran Adventurers from Bermuda (intending to be some of the first settlers of Eleuthera), who suffered shipwreck on a reef off Eleuthera in l647. They ended up at Spanish Wells. Among other, later, groups of settlers were Crown loyalists, who left the United States after the American Revolutionary War.
Spanish Wells is a quaint community that is unique in many ways. It is the Crawfishing Capital of the Bahamas and the people are very industrious; they move forward with the times and that sense of one big family is always prevalent.
Darrin is looking forward to meeting you and helping you purchase the island property of your dreams.
