A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous, quaint little spot! We adored both Sharon's condo & the beautiful location. We're already talking about planning our next stay.

I recently surprised my husband for our 12th wedding anniversary with a trip to Freeport. We had never been to the Bahamas and had it on our bucket list. I wanted a place a little more low key & less touristy so we could chillax. But I also wanted a spot that would offer some fun adventures like snorkeling, etc. We found exactly that! The only downside of our short 4-day stay was that we coincidentally arrived during one of the worst months of rain they've had in years! We got only 1 sunny day out of the 4 and even with that, we had an amazing time in paradise!

Correspondence w/ Sharon the condo owner was wonderful! Within moments if you had questions or needed suggestions, she would be happy to help. The condo was clean, crisp, welcoming and was prepped w/ an initial roll of T/P in each bathroom & a roll of paper towels in the kitchen to hold you over until you could make a little market run. That was helpful since we arrived upon a thunderstorm lol. Just a quick walk down the road to Flamingo Bay Hotel, you can find a tiny little convenience store for bread, snacks, etc. or catch the water taxi for $6/person round trip. It takes you on a short ride around the bend to Port Lucaya Marketplace where you can find shops, restaurants and bars for some entertainment. Some must try food spots: Sabor, Flying Fish ($$$ fine dining but so worth it), Zorbas and The Grill Steakhouse. Just one note, be forewarned if you are used to service standards in the US, everyone is working on island time. Be prepared to WAIT! The food is DELICIOUS & looks like art, but do not expect a quick dining or bar experience. But just relax, you're on vacation!

Next up, THE BEACH! Just a quick 2 minute walk through the neighboring lot of Belle Channel condo complex & you arrive to pristine, white powder, clear water paradise! We spent the entire sunny day we had there. You can feel free to walk down the beach without worry. There is a beach bar at Taino Beach resort that you can use without being a resort guest along with some of the activities they offer. We otherwise didn't get to experience any other of the local excursion type activities this trip due to weather. All in all, trust us, you WANT to stay here! We want to go back. 15min from airport, safe and relaxing. Even the neighbors were great! Thank you Sharon for a great stay!

Restful place....

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo; well situated even though if you are staying longer than 1 week, you will need a car. Absolutely beautiful beaches, good for hour+ walks.

Freeport has still not recovered from past hurricanes but, everything is clean; people are very nice — it’s just that is is very slow-paced and, not very much to do. So if you need a rest, and we did(!), this is the perfect place. We have always felt safe and at ease. We hope that the island will recover some of its restaurants and add some nightlife. Hosts were always available and ready to provide advice re. Activities. Lucie and David, November & December 2017

Location location Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A lovely condo very well presented and equipped and great location. The water taxi into Port Lucaya is less than 10 mins walk away and runs every hour on the hour up to approx 11pm. The owner Sharon was always at the end of an email and responded very quickly to any questions asked. She was always very helpful and accommodating to help make our stay so enjoyable. Would we stay again, most definitely, truly a lovely spot overlooking the lake and ideal for a romantic vacation thank you.

Best Owner we have work with!

  • 5 of 5

You start your location search with pictures first.... But the big thing is working with the owner.

Is the owner quick to respond? Do they answer your question completely? And finally are they

personable? This is our seventh VRBO adventure and Sharon Crisp (owner) is 5 STAR!

As an experienced renter of vacation properties I can honestly say this was one of the best! The unit is extremely well appointed and clean. The kitchen is set up with everything anyone would ever need to prepare meals or even entertain. The owners provided a supply of paper products and other key essentials, so there was no immediate rush to get out to the store to stock up when I arrived. My stay was a month long yet I found no need for a rental car! If desired a taxi can easily be acquired next door at Taino Beach Resort. Taino also offered shuttle to the nearest grocery store for $4 return three times a week. A two minute walk from the condo you will find a water taxi that runs from 8am to 11pm and for $3 each way will take you to Port Lucaya shops, restaurants, and casino. This quiet condo has beautiful views of the channel and yachts coming in and out of the harbor. The other residents are very friendly and helpful. Wifi, phone, tv, air conditioning, and all appliances were all in perfect working order. The stunning secluded beach is just a few minutes walk where you will find a restaurant, snorkelling, kayaking, pedal boats, jet skis, banana boats and other activities all available. I found the brochures provided by the owner very helpful. I easily arranged pickup and drop-off for snorkelling trips to a number of different locations. Don't miss Dead Man's Reef at Paradise Cove! For $40 they will provide transpiration and rental equipment for the entire day. I would recommend Sabor's and the Flying Fish for dinner, Zorba's coconut french toast for breakfast is a must! For dancing and fun beach party check out the Wednesday night Fish Fry at Smith's Point, it's a good mix of locals and tourists. Botanical lovers should visit Garden of the Groves for lunch. As a woman traveling on my own I felt very safe, the property is well lit and the locals are the friendliest and kindest you will find on any island.
