    "When I was at this location, I was in paradise. I could not have had a better time and both Ruth and Sid were fantastic. My son and I really enjoyed fishing in the Billfish Tournament. I could not have been more relaxed and I definitely want to return."

  • Amazing Vacation Rental!

    "If we had known how much we were going to enjoy Freeport, we would have stayed longer! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and having such wonderful hosts make a world of difference. The home came with the use of a car – a Volvo station wagon. We ended up naming her Penelope – a great car that you'll enjoy driving on the wrong side of the road with :-) She's an older car, so be kind, but she'll take you everywhere you need to go, and then some. Gas is a little pricey in The Bahamas, but the freedom of being able to drive about and explore is priceless. (Note: some of the excursions on the island will charge you less if you drive yourself there and they don't pick you up.) Food is also a little more expensive in The Bahamas, so if you don't want to eat out all the time like us lazy people, the house has a great kitchen equipped with everything you'll need to make a meal. They even provide purified water for you, although tap water is harmful if you decide to drink it. If you're concerned that the owners live right next door, don't be. They won't intrude on your day as much as you won't be intruding on theirs. If you're concerned it doesn't have a pool, you're being silly. You're on Grand Bahama Island with gorgeous beaches. Highlights of what this home has to offer: * full sized, fully equipped kitchen * cable TV and reliable Internet! * washer and dryer * King-sized bed in the master bedroom with great pillows (we only used 1 room of 3) * Volvo station wagon (Penelope), and she has a couple of beach chairs and umbrellas in the back * silence – the nights were so quiet, and we had no issues with sleeping in either even though the sun was up around 6am * no tourists nearby, which is a huge bonus for us This is definitely the place to stay if you want to get away from it all, yet have all the comforts of home you're used to. We'll be saving to come back for another visit!"

  • BC Westcoaster Islander

    "This island paradise was well worth the long trip from Canada's west coast. We were greeted with warm smiles and hugs at the ferry in Green Turtle Cay, by the cottage's owner, Marilyn. She was so friendly and a very caring hostess. Once she showed us the cottage, which is seconds from the ferry wharf, she left us to our own devices. The cottage was wonderful and suited us perfectly. Two clean modern bathrooms, two bedrooms, one with two single beds, and one with a double bed...both comfortable. The screened-in back porch was a nice place to get out of the sun and a pleasant place to sit. The furniture in the living room was overstuffed and comfy, perfect for lounging and reading and yes, there is wifi. There was air-conditioning in all the rooms which is great as you can keep the rooms you want cool. The kitchen was well equipped although having a few condiments on-hand would have been useful. There is a new washer and dryer....a real asset when you only take a small suitcase. You don't need much, as the weather is so good that shorts and t-shirts and flip flops are all you really need. You can rent a golf cart down the street, from Marilyn's Seaside Carts for $50 a day. The cottage is so well located in New Plymouth that a cart is not totally necessary -- but you do need a cart or bike to get to the beaches up the coast. Shortty's is close to grocery stores, next door to one of the liquor stores, and close to the centre of everything. There is a very rich history in this place. We found this cottage the perfect size for the two of us, with enough room that we were not tripping over one another. This cheerful cottage is quiet even though it's right in the middle of town. All the people are friendly, cheerful and polite. To sum it all up, Shorttys was more than adequate and the photos don't really even do it justice but give a fair idea. We will definitely be booking again. Loved it all!"
