"Wow! where do I begin? We've just returned from a 2 week holiday on this fantastic island. Our experience was top notch from the beginning conversations with Belle to the final conversations once home.
Belle and Mason's home is exactly as it is portrayed on the website so you won't have to worry about what is advertised and what you might get. There were 6 in our party and there was more than enough room for us all.
Miss Betty was there to greet us and was sweet as could be. She popped in now and then to see if there was anything we needed or brought us fresh tomatoes off her vine. It was also really nice to have free calling back home!
The location was perfect for us as it was away from the busy areas but close enough that we could take a short ferry ride into Port Lucaya. Just outside your front door (5min) walk to the left is Taino Beach and it is exactly as you see in the photo up to the right hand corner of the page. The sand is fine and the waters warm. A 5 min walk to the right takes you to the cute like ferry that takes you a short distance into Port Lucaya where you can shop or try their local restaurants.
Just out your back door there is a pool....it may be a community pool but it's like your own private pool as the other tenants don't use it. After a few hours at local beaches it was a nice way to spend our afternoons beside the pool with drinks and snacks. The canal is also right outside the back door. Mostly pretty quiet, sometimes the banana boat with screams of laughter will pass by. At night we would lay on the dock and watch the stars or watch the phosphorescent water light up in the dark. A great way to spend the evening!
The beaches we went to were as pretty as the one outside your front door. We snorkeled with a company called Exotic Adventures and Keith was our captain. They were the best price and took us to a spectacular area. This was probably the best money we spent while there.
Andrew (our friendly concierge) was so good to us! He seems to know everything about anything....and he made us THE BEST dinner!!! It was nice to know someone was picking us up at the airport too. Andrew took us to the local Fish Fry (every Wednesday night) where we had such a good time eating the local foods and dancing the night away.
I could go on and on but I'm sure you get the idea of how our two weeks were :)
Thank you Belle and Mason for opening your home to us. We will return again!
Julie, Steve, Sandy, Jim, Wendy and Heather"

"I am comfortable recommending this condo. The location, ocean front, close to Port Lucaya and the bar next door make it the best location on Grand Bahama island. I have been coming to Freeport for 30 years and a few years ago, sold my condo. This place is my choice.
I also rent a car when there, and there is ample parking and then you can see all the "things to see and do", and have easy access to the many excellent restaurants. I finally did Peterson's Cay and we felt it was one of the best snorkeling adventures we have ever done. Be sure to select a nice day, not excessively windy and do not go at low tide. Check the on line tide charts.
Diana, the owner and Salandra, the office manager are always a pleasure to work with. One of the things that I particularly liked, was the fully stocked kitchen with the open wall to the dining area. The condo is as the pics show. Wonderful."

"Wow. I hardly know where to even begin with this review! We loved everything about our stay at Old Bahama Bay! Our unit was perfect for our needs, super clean with perfect access to the water. We counted 47 steps from our porch to the beach! We enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking, swimming in the pool, riding bikes around the property, playing shuffleboard, relaxing in the hammock or lawn chair on the beach. Harold at the activity hut is probably the most delightful person I have ever met. So warm, enthusiastic, helpful, and simply charming in every way! We also were able to meet owners Steve and Ellen, and they too are wonderful folks. Steve and I exchanged multiple emails from the time we decided to stay here until the time we arrived, and he answered my endless questions with great patience and a sweet attitude. (Usually within minutes!).
The food at the Teasers, the Tiki Bar was very good, especially the coconut french toast, though they close early during the week. The food at the marina was quite disappointing, and the service extremely slow, so bypass that choice for an early dinner at Teasers, or grill something yourself on one of the multiple grills on the property.
I highly recommend renting a car so that you can see a bit of the rest of the Island. DO NOT MISS the Gold Rock beach, part of the Lucayan National Park. It is simply breathtaking, though does require a bit of a walk to get to.
While this vacation was our first trip to the Bahamas, it certainly will not be our last!"

"My wife, 2 young children (aged 3 and 5) and I spent three wonderful weeks in this house. It is the first time I have been anywhere where the property is actually better than the sales pics. While the property is as you see it on the YouTube video it actually feels more spacious when you get inside and the beach/ocean is far closer than expected. The house is also extremely well equipped and you feel very much looked after by the local manager.
In terms of positioning the property couldn't be in a better spot and the beach and water are very safe for small kids. There is also some decent snorkelling 30yrds off the shore.
It is close enough to the amenities and main town (10 mins drive) but far enough away to feel a sense of detachment from the world..
There is also enough to do on the island (don't miss the dolphin experience) if you can be bothered to drag yourself from the beach!
I can't recommend this property enough."
