Originally from upstate NY. Purchased this property recently for a place my family can visit and somewhere eventually I can stay for a couple months of the year.
Jamie purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Jamie chose Port Royal
I have been looking for years for a spot that I could just relax and enjoy the water. I've traveled from Honduras to the eastern Caribbean chain looking for a spot to call my own and finally found everything I wanted here.
What makes this Cottage unique
South Bimini is unique with the old charm of Bahamas but in fifteen minutes you can be at a casino, swim up bar, or fine restaurant eating sushi. Sport fishing, diving, snorkeling is all within your reach. Unless you just want relax on the porch with a cold beverage watching the fish swim by.
This place was perfect for our needs. It was conveniently located on the canals and you could walk to the beach in less than 10 minutes. It was a short drive to get fuel at Bimini Sands or on North Bimini. The dock out front was fantastic. Loved being able to literally drive up to the door and unload. The house was a great size for just the 2 of us, but could easily accommodate more with the extra bedding in the front room. The air conditioners worked great. The stackable washer and dryer was an added bonus. We certainly appreciate the owner being so flexible with the schedule. We originally rented for the week and ended up adding a few days.
Just a few tips: Bring bug spray. No problem during the day but the bugs really come out at night and they're not shy. We used Avon Skin So Soft with great success (Amazon). The water changes with the tides - dock your boat with that in mind. Do not swim in the canal - there are bull sharks. No joke.
Wishlist: a microwave would be a nice addition to the kitchen.
Paradise Around the Corner
Thanks for sharing your your home with us. It was nice having the boat right outside. The house was comfortable for two adults and two teenagers. Air conditioner was cold, place was relatively clean. Kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed our three days and hope to return in the near future. Jordanna and Eric
An awesome place to get away.
Great place to get away from busy north bimini but minutes away by boat to everthing Bimini has to offer.
Absolutely loved it!
This place was perfect for us. After a long day on the water, it is nice to dock the boat and only be a few steps from a hot shower and cold ac. It is charming, quaint and cozy.
Love the cottage and location. My only suggestion would be to have it a little cleaner as some utensils and pots are a little outdated. Bathroom and towels too were a little smelly but otherwise it was fantastic!!!!!! Would not stay anywhere else in Bimini!!!!!
Better than I had hoped for.
This cottage was clean, adorable, and fully stocked with anything you could want. Tons of towels, sheets, cooking utensils. It even has a washer and dryer, which was a pleasant surprise. Two air conditioners that worked great, but we found we didn't even need them much with the breeze. There was hi-speed wi-fi. There was even Netflix on the tv! South Bimini is peaceful and quiet. I found the North island a great place to visit and eat, but not where I would want to stay. The beach was only a five minute walk away from the cottage and always secluded. There's not much for food on the South Island. Sands resort has a place, there's a burger place near the ferry and a small store. Bring as many groceries as you can. Everybody on the island was very friendly and helpful. We went fishing with a neighbor, snorkeling with another. Make sure to take a trip out to Honeymoon Harbor to feed and swim with the rays. Contact Brown, I put his # in the guest book. Overall, very happy with our stay. Jamie (the owner) was always quick to answer any questions I had and very helpful.
Thank you for the kind words, it sounds like you had a great time. Thank you for staying with us. Hope to have you again real soon!
Bimini is known for its gorgeous waters, adventurous past, and big game fishing.
