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.

Notes:
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.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying on Coral Beach! This was our second time and it is the perfect spot! The beach is gorgeous, the pool is refreshing, the snack shack is fun for drinks and lunch! If you rent a car, you can get all over the island and Coral Beach is centrally located. So close to the airport and Port Lucaya where you can do all the water excursions, shop and pick from many restaurants and bars. Since you have your own kitchen, you can save some money and hit the grocery store for breakfast foods and snacks. We would love to come again!!

I felt the property to be in need of upgrades.

  • 1 of 5

First impression, stained and very old and out of shape bedspread. Even the pillowcases have stains which is disgusting...Futon cover was nasty looking. When I pay to stay somewhere it should be pretty and inviting. I will not stay at this property again. Very dissatisfied. Also wasn't aware of how much we would have to pay taxi drivers every time we went somewhere.

Best birthday getaway for Mom in 9 years of birthday trips!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I have been taking our world traveler (now 95 year old) Mom to someplace south/warm for 9 years and she praised this island and Don & Liz's condo as her most favorite. We had both units which was perfect for 4 of us: lent easily to being together as well as having private space; Tv watchers could enjoy while non Tv watchers did not have to be in same space; it worked for early risers and late sleepers.

Most of our time was spent outside on the condo decks, the magnificent beach, the local market, and touring the island.

My personal favorite spot was the condo deck and balcony from which we experienced island breezes, beautiful view and BOTH sunrise and sunset with one step out the glass doors!

This island is filled with the most generous and gracious people. We were fortunate Don's sister Karen was vacationing while we were there because she became our instant friend and island expert. Condo staff went out of their way plus Don and Liz were responsive to every question.

One more huge benefit was the phone provided for unlimited calls to anywhere in the states.

We toyed with buying a condo so that we could return regularly but this unit is the one we would want!

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.
