About the property

Bahama Mama Beach House 5 Bd 3.5 Bth sleeps 16, Up to 28 w/Upper & Lower Cottage

The Bahama Mama Beach House is an over 4100 sq feet private beach home which includes 1200 sq feet of covered decks facing the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This fully furnished 5-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom beach house is situated directly on the water. Just step off the spacious wrap-around front deck onto the sugar white crystal sand and you’re in the clear emerald turquoise waters of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is located on a private beach street right off the main Front Beach Road so even though it is right smack in the middle of Pier Park and the county pier and all the action, the beach is quieter here. With two stories of living space and spacious decks and a third story observatory tower on top, the views of our beautiful beach and the clearest waters of the Gulf of Mexico are endless. The home has large patio and balcony areas as well as fenced in grassy areas for entertaining, socializing, child safety, or for just taking a well deserved afternoon nap in a comfy beach chair. Or maybe you just want to relax a bit in the shade with a cool drink while listening to the gentle waves of the Gulf and relishing in the beautiful views as you enjoy the sunrises, sunsets or even the moon nestling over our beach. The house is fully equipped with just about everything you need, including kitchen utensils and pots and pans, plenty of towels, plenty of deck/balcony tables & chairs and several portable play pens/cribs for the babies. There are also two adjacent beach front upper and lower cottage units on the premises that are very private but allow us to accommodate large parties of up to 28. Each cottage can be rented separately or as a part of a package that includes the house and the two front beach cottages. Please see Baby Bahama Upper cottage at VRBO Listing #437382 and Baby Bahama Lower Cottage at VRBO Listing #465096

There is plenty of private off street parking for about 12 or more cars on the property. Water sports, amusement parks, restaurants, shopping and entertainment at the famous Pier Park are all nearby. Of course, we also welcome smaller parties. Discounts may apply for smaller groups. Please see other cottage units available at VRBO Listing #437382 and VRBO Listing #465096

Main House and cottage units may be rented together for a discounted price.

The property was so great! It was just perfect for the amount of people we had. Al and Donna have it equipped with everything you need from kitchen items down to the beach toys and floats. We will definitely be back. Also, we loved having our own private beach. So nice!!

Our stay was great. The property was in great condition and you couldn't beat the location.

The owners Al & Donna were great hosts and very easy to deal with.

I would highly recommend this property to any one who enjoys the water and sand.

All in all a great experience.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Bahama Mama beach house in September, 2016. Our party was nine adults. We could have easily had 16, utilizing the bunk bed room. The house is perfectly situated right on the ocean, and there are two huge covered porches looking right out over the surf. The porches are equipped with rocking chairs and this was where we spent much of our time enjoying the beautiful view. In addition, there is a "crows nest" at the very top of the home, where you could see for miles out over the water and up and down the beach. In spite of being next to a public access, the home was very private and there was a huge back and side patio with picnic tables and more outdoor furniture. There are two outdoor showers: one a the path to the beach that is so convenient for sand removal, and the other at the side of the home that was a true outdoor shower with hot and cold water. We loved that outdoor shower! A double clothesline on the side of the home was helpful, no more towels and bathing suits draped over the railings. The inside of the home is decorated in classic Florida style, the fixtures are somewhat dated but very charming and functional. The home was very clean. There was plenty of room to eat together and to visit. There were TVs in every room but we did not use them, preferring to be together in the huge den and watching the big screen there. There are two refrigerators which came in very handy. There is a commercial ice machine that can be turned on for large groups but would have been "overkill" for the nine of us. There was room to park at least 8 cars. Donna and Al were very kind, arranging for us to check in a little early so we could pick up our children from the airport. Patrick, the property manager, checked on us several times during our stay to make sure that we had everything that we needed. He even brought over a telescope one day so we could enjoy the stars from the crows nest! The only thing that the home may benefit from would be a possible replacement for some of the twin mattresses, they are a little worn, and possibly updating of the linen. But these are very minor things. We enjoyed our stay very much and will hopefully be back in the future.
