About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This newly built Grand Bahama Vacation Rental Home located on the water with boat access is professionally decorated and has a simple charm for both the beach goers and the fishermen. If you are a sport fisher or like to play on the water, this is your tropical paradise. Pull your boat up to the dock or simply throw your bait in the water right out back at the landing. The house has been stylishly decorated, making it a warm and cozy place to read, relax or sunbathe on the back deck. The landing has a 15 foot deep canal that doubles as a gateway for some of the best fishing and diving the Caribbean has to offer. A short walk down the road leads to the beach or snorkel the canal looking for tropical fish and lobster. Yes Lobster! In the evening, you are only a few short miles from the night life at Port Lucaya where you can dance the night away, enjoy a delicious dinner; or simply sit on the veranda in the rear of the home and smoke a cigar, star gaze, listen to music or even make a little of your own. If you would like to see more pictures and a 3 Dimensional tour of our tropical home on our website at

Why Bonnie Bucher chose Bahamia West

Traveling throughout the islands, I wanted to build a home that had a tropical feel in a remote location while still having the conveniences of a modern city. Freeport is a cool mix of the laid back life style of the Abacos coupled with a hint of the city life of Nassau. You can drive to the east side of the island and walk for miles and not see a soul; or you can drive down the road to a store similar to Sam's Club or Costco and buy a weeks worth of groceries for your family.

What makes this house unique

Haven Del Mar offers direct access to the ocean from the backyard. You can pull your boat up to the dock, thus eliminating expensive dockage fees. You have the convenience of offloading stores and the catch of the day without traveling or walking long distances to your lodging. Hot day? Jump in the canal and catch some lobsters. Enjoy the tropical fish that live and play under the dock. Swim across the canal and you'll be on a remote beach that its only habitats are blue crab and tropical birds. Hear the ocean waves splash and crash from the back deck. In one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Grand Bahama, Haven Del Mar is ready to give you and your family remarkable memories of your exotic vacation to the islands.

Exceptional home and a fantastic host!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the home to find it clean, cozy and inviting. The house was completely redecorated after the recent hurricane. We loved it!!! The owner gave us expert local information for bakeries, restaurants and clearing customs. He even shared gps numbers for our family to go fishing. We destroyed the snapper on the North side. I think the numbers were worth more than the rental. LOL.

Our kids played at the dock and practiced their back flips on the diving board. It was a huge hit. As much as we loved being in the boat; we could not wait to get back to the house. It was so easy for us to park the boat out back and just relax. We were able to have a cocktail on the dock and enjoy our family while still doing boating duties. It was so easy. We cleaned the fish, boat and gear and were in a hot shower moments afterward.

The pool table was a hit as well. Our family had a billiard competition every night. Kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook our catch. We saved so much money by catching and cooking healthy meals.

Thank you Haven Del Mar for our memories. We definitely will be back!

Amazing vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

Amazing vacation spot! Beautiful beaches just a short bike ride away! Very friendly locals and a short bike ride to the food and clothing stores. The house is perfect (we missed the orange paint though) and the decor is beautiful. Great property did not feel the need to wander to far as everything we needed was right here! Pool table was perfect for the cooler evenings and the channel led right out to a cute little beach! Over all great place and I'm sure we will be back in the near future.

PERFECTLY relaxing quiet rejuvenating time!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house, very clean, great kitchen, nice beds, GREAT SLEEP, house on a deep water canal about 400 yards from ocean by kayak. Loads of tropical fish to view at the dock, relaxing time swimming in the canal, diving from the diving board, or sitting on the dock in the evening with a bottle of wine. Access to beach is 1/2 mile away, unbelievable water crystal clear and very private. One day 1/4 mile of beach 10-15 people, unbelievably private We saw a tremendous number of small fish but also 4-5 ft barracuda and a LARGE sting ray, lots of shells. Make Pier 1 one of your restaurant stops and watch the shark feeding, bull and lemon sharks, entertainment great... food even better....

As far as Haven Del Mar, this was our 4th trip, why try to replace perfection, we will be back ABSOLUTELY....... AGAIN!! Go yourself, you will not be disappointed.

Already planning our next trip!!

Owner's Response: You stayed at the house over 2 years ago and just write this review of "ok" ?? My thought is that you procrastinated and didn't explore our wonderful island.
