Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed here for just one week and wish it could have been longer. It was a very pretty condo with great views from all the windows. It was very comfortable and clean and the owner's keep it maintained. We had everything we needed. Very happy we choose it and would return again.

Beautiful view, easy access and centrally locted

Enjoyed our stay. The Condo was clean and well appointed. The beach was great, we enjoyed the bar/restaurant that was right next door on the beach. Great value too. Unit is centrally located, close to Port Lucuya and the market.

Beautiful view, great location but time for an upgrade in a few areas.

  • 3 of 5

The view in this condo was breath taking. One day I saw from our window a sting ray swimming in the clear water of the beach down below. We had a cooling breeze every day eight floors up. The condo is painted a sunny light yellow and has a cheerful feel. The on-site staff, especially Leroy, was really helpful and pleasant to talk to. The hotel/condo next door had opened an outside bar and restaurant, which gave us some place fun to walk to at night. There were plenty of good towels for inside use.

Unfortunately, the sheets on the queen sized bed were pilled all over! After a few nights, I decided to change them for comfort. The second set however was visibly stained so I stuck with the pilled ones. After years of renting, this is the only place I've stayed that had ALL plastic dishes, none of which, of course, could be put in the microwave. (Some were cracked and worn and needed to be tossed out.) We used a glass measuring cup and a very small Pyrex that we washed after every meal for microwaving. The baking pans were rusted and need to be replaced. When I went to sweep up after ourselves, there was a broom but no dust pan so I was left with a pile of sand in corner.

I would come back if I knew the upgrades had been made but as is now, I would not.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear of these issues but assure they were addressed accordingly. We use only hotel grade bedding which we replace yearly and have never received a complaint about the sheets. Dishes are Corelle which are microwavable and very durable. Our ovenware is Pyrex so if there was a rusted baking pan it was purchased and left by a previous guest which we have no control over. Inside the condo there is a broom, dustpan and mop for guests’ use.

Absolutely Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was above and beyond our expectations. Very clean, well maintained and perfect location. It was spacious and nicely decorated. We felt comfortable and right at home. The views from the windows were breathtaking. The beach was peaceful, the water relaxing and we did not want to leave. We plan to go back again in the Spring. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and the manager on site very friendly and helpful. We had the best vacation. Highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Freeport.

Wonderful Week in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at this condo, the last being in 2010 and 2011. The condo is well maintained and the owners are very quick to respond to any questions.

The condo is equipped with linens, all the kitchen items you will need, and a cooler for use on beach excursions. The beach in front of the condo is lovely and clean, with gentle waves suitable for swimming and snorkeling. Beds are comfortable with a queen in the master bedroom and a single and double in the second bedroom. There are two bathrooms with full tubs/showers.

Plenty of closet space and dressers for your belongings. The condoning south facing with a ton of windows to let the sounds of the waves lull you to sleep after a fantastic day of exploring.

There is a small reef right offshore. There is plenty to do in Freeport and Lucaya and the people of The Bahamas are friendly and welcoming to tourists. The island is accessible by car for day trips but you could also make do with taxis and on foot. The Port Lucaya market is within walking distance from the condo.

A great reasonably priced property-we highly recommend it!

NO WONDER WHY THEY CALL IT THE VISTA!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I opened the door to the “Vista,” all I could say was, “Oh my God!” My jaw hit the floor! I was greeted with a massive wall of windows, overlooking a beautiful turquoise sea. This is such a gorgeous home. I felt so comfortable in it. The colors were so warm and soothing. The owners captured the very essence of what it is to have a place in the Caribbean. Every detail was perfect and blended in with the whole décor; the furniture, the wall hangings; even the cute bistro table by the window, where I sat each morning, as I soaked it all in while I sipped my cup of tea. As I looked out the window, I saw a picturesque beach below; no screaming kids; just total serenity. No need to lug everything into the car, because we were already at the beach, with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and an inviting pool that we practically had all to ourselves.

I can’t believe I almost paid double the price for just a hotel room. Here I had a whole condo! A private bedroom that I didn’t have to share with the kids. A fully loaded kitchen, where I could cook my own breakfast to save money instead of eating out, or worse, having cold cereal every morning. A full-size refrigerator, big enough to fit all my food and beverages.

And I have to mention all the little amenities that make the Vista so special: A cooler to bring my drinks down to the beach; laundry facilities right on the premises; a clothesline in the shower to hang my wet swim trunks; and let’s not forget, CENTRAL AIR! Granted, being on the eighth floor, most days we just opened the windows and enjoyed the cool ocean breezes.

I can’t wait to come back again. And because the rental rates were so low, I’ll be able to return next year, instead of making it only a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience.

Great Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon July 2014. The place was beautiful with great views of the ocean. The pool is right outside and the beach just past the pool. There is a great snack/lunch place at the building next door. It is an easy walk downtown, or a quick cab ride.

Overall had a fantastic time!
