Great additional features like a two car garage and boat dock make this an ideal island home. The dock has 50 amp service allowing for larger boats to hook up to shore power.

Peaceful Escape

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week here recently. The accommodations were exactly as described and suited our every need. The use of the Jeep and CC Boat made the trip so multidimensional that everyone enjoyed something different! Highly recommend a visit

Great property! Great Deal!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this property in the Grand Bahamas. It is a sweet deal with the boat and Jeep included. We weren't able to use the pool, as the weather was only in the high 70's most of the time. We were on the ocean in the boat almost every day (weather permitting). The reefs are great for snorkeling...yes, we endured the water temps, as we didn't want to miss this opportunity! The home has everything a family could want/need. We enjoyed the games the home had available, the outside dining and the use of the grill for the fish we caught. The biggest expense, outside of the plane tickets and home, is the food and gas...very expensive! Ryan and his wife took great care of us and ensured we were well informed and taken care of during our stay. Thank you to the owners for this opportunity! It is a great family memory for us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such an informative and wonderful review! Yes, unfortunately going to the grocery store is quite a sticker shock. Everything on the island has to be shipped in from the US and that really increases the food prices. Its always great to catch and eat fresh fish! Thanks again and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay!

Everything one needs for a getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t be improved upon. House, pool, Jeep, kayaks, bikes, boat, all 25 minutes from a gorgeous and empty beach. The adults particularly enjoyed the evenings in the outdoor living room overlooking the canal.

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!!
