Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely. The caretaker Colyn is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The fact that this home comes with a boat and a Jeep makes it a fantastic bonus! Our kids loved the boat the best and we took it out a lot of the days. Bruce (the owner) was also exceptionally responsive when we had questions or concerns.

We really enjoyed New Year’s Day during the evening parade in downtown Freeport called Junkanoo! It was similar to the Mummers parade in Philly.

Thanks for a great time!

A Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the airport and found the care taker no problem. We arrived at the house and it was very clean. Myself and four friends headed down there to use the boat provided and go spear fishing. Everything about the trip was great and the owner went far out of his way to make sure our vacation was perfect! Truely a boater's and fishing paradise, but also close to the beaches. Overall, can not say what a great job Bruce did taking care of our group and will definitely be making another trip in the future.

Beautiful house with excellent hospitality!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. It is in a wonderful location on Grand Bahama Island, convenient to the beach and Port Lucaya. This house is very well equipped and there is nothing you need to bring other than your bathing suit. We loved taking the boat out in the beautiful clear waters to snorkel around the coral reefs...AWESOME!!! It has a great outdoor pool with outdoor dining and a gorgeous view of the wide canal. The inside of the house is beautiful and will not be disappointed with the decor and all of the beds are more comfortable than ours at home in the States!! Just a couple of minutes to the beach and very close to shopping and great dining. Bruce is a great owner and very responsive and we found Colyn the caretaker very helpful and informative with any questions we might have. Our favorite night was sitting on the dock on Sunday listening to live music at "Flying Fish" provided by Chef Tom. We highly recommend this home for a great vacation and are planning on coming back next year!!

Beautiful Home On The Water - Great To Get To By BOAT!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Bruce was very responsive and professional well before we arrived at his home. My friend's and I have always talked about making the run from the East Coast of Florida to the Bahamas by personal boat for a once in a lifetime fishing trip. Bruce helped navigate to the home by boat and his friend Colyn greeted us with a warm smile as we docked our boat in Bruce's back yard. THIS HOME IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We had breakfast every morning on the patio overlooking the swimming pool and ocean. After breakfast, we took our boat, caught fish, came back and used the grill at the house to cook our dinner. After dinner, we would take the jeep (INCLUDED IN THIS RENTAL) in to town and restock at the local grocery store a few minutes away. The interior is beautiful and pristine. You truly feel like you are at home here. I will certainly be back to rent this home again next year!!

Loved this house!! Awesome vacation in the Bahamas...

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation to the Bahamas was perfect, everything we had hoped for... and we have Bruce and Kathy to thank for their fantastic hospitality. Their caretaker “Colyn” was there to meet us at the airport and to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our awesome vacation on Grand Bahama Island. The home was beautiful and it had a spectacular view of the huge gorgeous canal. We loved sitting on the back porch with our cocktails and watching the sunset! The pictures on the website were so lovely, we wondered if it would meet our expectations when we finally arrived. MET AND SURPASSED! The location was perfect; so close to Port Lucaya and the ocean just a short drive down the street; the house was charming and so well appointed. There was nothing the owners overlooked. We loved having our own private boat “Bellafina” to explore the island by water and go snorkeling and having the cool Jeep Wrangler to drive just topped off the trip. We looked at dozens of places to stay on the island (resorts, hotels, rentals), and I am so glad we choose this rental. It has been a dream of mine to bring my family to the Bahamas…thank you for making that dream come true.
