About the property

Top floor Ocean facing 2 attached studios recently renovated fresh and clean

Welcome to our Beachfront Bahamas Condos!

We love the Bahamas and enjoy our time there. When our apartment is empty, we offer it for rental to people who we hope will enjoy it as much as we do!

Our names are Liz & Don. We are the long time owners of unit #1503 VRBO 35737.

Please read our online reviews for units 1603, 1605 and 1503 (search Liz and Don Coral Beach) to see what our valued guests' experience has been! We take great pleasure and care in providing a clean and comfortable vacation rental to nice people. We enjoy getting to know each of our guests and we have established a friendship with many repeat guests!

1603/1605 is the unit that we have always wanted to own!! When it came up for sale we had to grab it! This property is unique at Coral Beach because it is two units that are rented together. They perfectly complement each other and offer double the space!

We have made several improvements since we bought it. It is the perfect location on the top floor of building one, facing the ocean. It features two large terraces. It also has a smaller balcony with a bistro table that's perfect for coffee or cocktails.

About Liz & Don

We are Liz & Don. Don has been coming to Coral Beach since his parents bought there in the 1970's! Liz & Don bought #1503 in 2006 and love the Coral Beach and Grand Bahama Island community.

Liz & Don purchased this condo in 2012

Why Liz & Don chose Windsor Park

When this property came up for sale, we had to buy it because it is a rare gem. There are very few like this at Coral Beach. It is on the 6th floor of building one. The two adjoining units are abutted by large terraces on each end. which is a rarity. Plus, it is the top floor of our building. The view is gorgeous from all directions!

What makes this condo unique

The previous owners had the intention of making this one unit but didn't complete the renovation. Our condo is configured as separate studios that rent as one unit, separated by a 'hotel' type door. The ocean facing unit is #1605. It offers a king bed and a overstuffed futon. #1603 has an ocean view and a large western facing deck. It offers a few feet of extra space; it has a queen bed and sleeper sofa and a chaise sleep chair.

We have traveled throughout the Bahamas. While each island has it's own individual charm and natural beauty, Grand Bahama Island is unique. It is easily accessible by air world-wide, and by ships and boats from the U.S. and other islands. The business, infrastructure, and opportunities for tourism make Grand Bahama an ideal destination. Our condos at Coral Beach are in the perfect location; in that they are within walking distance, and close driving distance to the the majority of places that tourists like to visit. If you're looking to see beaches 'off the beaten path,' we can help you with that, also! Thank you for considering our condos and our Island for your next holiday or vacation! All the best, Liz & Don.

Great location, well equipped, and extremely attentive owner.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time vacationing in the Bahamas. We were celebrating my sister’s birthday and looking for a place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. We certainly accomplished our goal at this condo! We rented both 1305 and 1303., there were 3 of us traveling together. The view was spectacular. We enjoyed easy access to the beach and convenience of the pool and pool side restaurant and bar. The island is definitely still recovering from Hurricane Matthew (2016) however that worked to our advantage. There were just enough people and we did not feel overcrowded at restaurants in Port Lucayan marketplace shops and restaurants. We walked to Port Lucaya marketplace several times and used taxi service other times. We found the local people friendly, reliable, and helpful. Don, the owner, was so accommodating and so helpful with questions as we prepared for our trip and while we were there. I highly recommend this condo if you are looking for a great escape and want to enjoy the beautiful beach and island.

We had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed. The employees of Coral Beach hotel were so awesome! The elevator was broken and the condo is 70 steps up to the sixth floor. The security guard and a construction worker jumped right in and helped us carry our baggage and groceries up all those stairs! We highly recommend the 7 hr. jeep safari tour. Our tour guide and the adventure were well worth it! The beach off the condo is crystal clear and gorgeous! Thank you Don & Liz for helping us to have such a wonderful vacation! Don even called us a couple of times while we were there to make sure all was going well! Awesome vacation!

Vacation on Week of July 4 2017

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Liz & Don's place the week of July 4. What a nice place. Sure the hurricane has devastated the island and took out the elevator, but this was the most relaxing, low stress vacation we were looking for. Don's restaurant recommendations were great (Zorbas, Pisces). We spent our days fishing(Native Son experience)and diving (Sunn Odyssey) and snorkeling. Our taxi driver (Michele:242-442-6068) was our personal tour guide. She would wait while we shopped for groceries, while we ate at the restaurants and hauled us to our dive boat. No extra charge!

Don & Liz's condo was very nice with the best views from the balconies. It was comfortable for all five of us and was nicely furnished.

The island is certainly hurting, but we were not without anything we needed or wanted to do. Actually, we felt satisfaction to be able to help the local economy. I highly recommend Grand Bahamas and if you go, try to stay at Don & Liz's place.

Great New Years Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Don and Liz's from 12-31-2016 through 1-5-2017 and both rooms were great and met all our needs. We have a 20 year old boy, an 18 year old boy, and an 8 year old girl, so we definitely enjoyed the space of both rooms and used all the sleeping arrangements available. The accommodations were comfortable for all and the views were fantastic. With the 2 older boys, I don't think they could've survived without the wireless internet which worked great. The island is still recovering from the Hurricane, but that worked out for us because the restaurants in the Marketplace were never too crowded so we didn't need reservations. All the staff at the Coral Beach are very friendly. The beach is great and water was perfect for swimming. Nothing like swimming in the ocean on New Years day when you live in Michigan. The food and drinks at the bar/restaurant were very good and probably better than you can get at the Marketplace. The location is very good and we walked down the beach to the Marketplace just about every day. After walking up and down the beach, you could tell which property was Coral Beach because that's where the people were. Some of our recommendations are to use Queenie for cab rides (she took us a number of places and by the end of the trip, seemed like family). We swam with the Dolphins through Unexso and would definitely recommend that. We've done that other places, but this one gave you the most individual time with the dolphins. It was a too windy on the days we were there to snorkel except for the day we had to leave, so I would recommend that if you think about going to Paradise Cove, wait until the day you want to go to see if it's calm enough. I think the snorkeling at the Condo would have been great had we had a calm day to try. Restaurant recommendations in the Marketplace are Cappuccino's , La Parrilla, and Sabor. All were excellent. I would definitely recommend staying at Don and Liz's at the Coral Beach. Our family had a great and memorable vacation.

A Memorable Family Vacation at Coral Beach

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 1 week stay at Liz and Don's adjoining 6th floor suites at Coral Beach (Dec 23rd - 29th) and can truly say we absolutely loved it (and yes, the units were exactly as described and pictured). From the fully furnished/decorated suites and their accompanying views, to the laid back and gracious people (locals, residents, and fellow travellers alike), Coral Beach met our whole families needs (a pretty impressive feat for 2 adults and 2 teenagers). While the grounds and buildings still reflected some scars from the only 2 months earlier hurricane, we were so very fortunate that the pool and its adjoining restaurant had just returned to full operation the day we arrived (we drank and ate there copiously every day of our stay:). The white sandy beach and emerald ocean just steps away from the pool and bar were awesome, although the water was a bit sandy/murky for snorkelling - bad on us for not trying the recommended snorkelling spot just a 10 minute walk down the beach. While we spent most of our time hanging by the pool/bar/beach, there were 2 things we did do that we can't say enough about (both big hits with our 15 and 17 year old teenagers); we booked a 4 hour catamaran excursion with Bootleggers Tours (call Tony at 242-646-1051; visit their facebook page to read our review) and attended the Wednesday night fish fry about a 10-15 minute cab ride from Coral Beach (we ate at Outriggers and stayed for the dancing and music videos on the big screen).

We also want to give a shout out to the cast of characters who made our stay so memorable; condo residents Congo Man and Irvine Palacious (island historian, boxing enthusiast, and taxi driver), Congo Man's sister Gerri (also a taxi driver), security staff Marilyn, Katie, and Marco, bartender Nate and bar assistant Shirelle, handy-man and aspiring singer/music maker Logan, and the restaurant's dedicated chef and her magic elves. Not surprisingly, all the other holidayer's we met at Coral Beach - which included numerous condo owners and repeat visitors - were friendly and happy to be there.

This was truly a 5 star, 4 thumbs up vacation for this British Columbia, Canada family!

Charming Stay at Oceanfront Studio

  • 5 of 5

We got just what we expected and just what we were looking for with our stay in Liz & Don's place at Coral Beach. We had a direct ocean view from the front room, a comfortable king size bed, and a fully equipped kitchen, which we prepared most of our meals in. It was very quiet, and not crowded. We were the only people on the beach at times, which was great. The water is crystal-clear and the beach is super clean. The pool was nice to have too, overlooking the ocean. There is a little on-site restaurant-bar that supplemented our own cooking. The food there is quite good - much better than the touristy options up the beach in Port Lucaya and in the Market. We highly recommend the fish-burgers (fish sandwiches) and any of the curry dishes - delicious.

Logistics-wise, Liz & Don were in immediate communication the couple of times we reached out with questions. We took a cab from the airport to the condo (did not rent a car) - ~20 minute ride/$20, and stopped at the Sands Brewery, just down the road from the Airport. We highly recommend stopping here on the way in - it is the cheapest option to pick up beverages before you get to the condo. Beyond that, there is a Solomon's (akin to an American grocery store) that you could run/walk/take a cab to (2 miles), for all grocery items you may want. We highly recommend staying here, and would stay here again!
