Why The Owner chose Discovery Bay

The Bahamian people are so friendly. This was a great contributing factor in us purchasing a vacation home in the Bahamas !

What makes this apartment unique

The beach is by far the best beach we have visited in the whole world !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Christine !



We are now settled in your beautiful condo and are absolutely in love!

As I am sure you can picture, there are no less than 13 freighters on the horizon - reminds us very much of being at home - watching the freighters from our window on Lake Huron.



We are looking very forward to some sunshine and exploring this gorgeous area.



Rest assured, we will look after your beautiful sea-side escape - we already know it will be hard to leave!



Kindest regards with 5 stars,

Nice relaxing spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Riviera Villas. The manager was very personable and helpful about where things are on the island, local events, etc. We didn't mind that we weren't on the beach because it took 3 seconds to walk there. It's closer to the quieter end of the beach, which we really liked. The condo is also very close to town. We did not rent a car since we were only there for 5 days and planned on staying in the area. It's a great walk along the beach to the Lucaya Market (also safe at night but watch out for the rising tide!) The condo itself was clean, quiet and comfortable. Wifi is available which is really nice for looking things up (although they do provide a map). The owner was very helpful as well and prompt with her email responses and following up.

There are a couple of things that I would say were less than favorable. We were told we may have to buy paper products for the condo (as in TP and what-have-you). We didn't have to since there were two rolls, but I wasn't thrilled about the idea that I would have to stock the condo with essentials like that. I'm not sure if it would have even been feasible that first day - that would have been VERY inconvenient. There also wasn't any dish soap. There was a bottle under the sink of very watered down soap - someone was clearly trying to make it stretch. Again, I just feel that things like that should be provided.

Great place to stay overall and would highly recommend for a beautiful relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Hi Efa, I hope you had a great time in the Bahamas and had a relaxing time. Thank you for the review. We try to make our vacation home comfortable for our guests when we are not there. The apartment always has basic supplies, and the manager also has supplies in the office. Christine

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took some time off over the recent Xmas holiday to travel to the Grand Bahamas and stayed at this condo. While there was no ocean view it did not diminish the experience at all. The beach is just a short walk along a path between two condo/hotel facilities. The hotel on the beach provided for a bar and food service just steps off the beach. The beach itself was absolutely beautiful and this from someone who has experienced many beaches around the world.

Restaurants were abundant at Lucaya Market and surprisingly, while food from the local grocery stores was expensive, the restaurants were not. The restaurants served a great variety and we did not experience a bad meal the entire week we were there.

Lots do....horseback riding, bonefishing, snorkeling, etc. Time unfortunately flew by. All in all a great place to vacation and the condo was a perfect place to stay. We did rent a car and never felt uncomfortable or threatened wherever we traveled on the island. The people were extremely friendly and the vendors in the markets were all very polite.
