Why Marc Blouin chose Freeport
Love at first look, needed some love and attention but with the great carpenters we found on the island, the beach house was transformed into a lovely getaway home. The city Freeport is the perfect Bahama location. The water here is the perfect Caribbean color, it takes your breath away. The islanders are incredibly friendly and they love the tourist like no other place you have traveled to. The location of our home is perfect. Just a five minute drive to the brand new Water parks that have everything for water activities that you could want including no entrance fee. But most of all is the quite peaceful atmosphere that our location gives you.
What makes this House unique
Your own beautiful private walking path only seconds to the beach. The island isn't that big so you don't get lost for long. The sunsets and sun rises are spectacular that you can enjoy with coffee or a cocktail in the evenings. You will love walking the beach, not many people at all and I make each sunset a must. A beautiful getaway and stress free life. Our favorite lunch is to walk to the beach and turn left, and walk 10 minutes to a favorite local hangout. The food is wonderful, and you can meet many friends and enjoy the fun with an island cocktail of your choice. Also the Lacaya Marketplace is very close to the villa as well as the Grocery store. We never wanted to leave the house but when we did the restaurants that are at the Lacaya Marketplace are so close that you have the hardest time figuring out where to dine. So many choices and they all are good or they want last long. But the casino is beautiful and the most fun for the evening. The locals have started many businesses that cater to the tourist, including deep see fishing, Bone fishing is one of the biggest draws to the island, jeep tours, cave diving, water jet boards and all the water fun at the park next to us you could want. The dolphin experience on the island is the best you can find anywhere. All of these factors were an easy pick for this location.

Great week in the Bahamas
Our family stayed for a week in early June--parents and three kids 11 and up. The house was as advertised and in an ideal location on the beach. The view is exactly as it appears on the website, except better in person. We usually had the beach to ourselves for long periods of time, except for the occasional people taking walks up and down the beach. The water was clear, warm, and good for swimming. As others have noted, there are several reefs just to the left of the house, pretty close to shore, that were fun to snorkel around. There are even several areas in the water to the left that are completely free of rocks for those with littler kids. We loved to sit on the porch and had dinner there most nights, looking out over the water. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing off the sand. The house was exceptionally clean when we arrived, and had pretty much everything you could ask for: lots of bath towels, beach towels, pillows, etc. The kitchen was well-stocked with plenty of cutlery, dishes, glassware, pots and pans, etc. The laundry was a big plus too, especially if you are there for a week. Wi-fi worked great too. Did not watch TV at all the whole time, but there is a big screen in the living room.
Most importantly, Dave (who manages the house for the owner) was exceptionally helpful from booking through the stay. He answered all of my questions, and was honest and transparent about everything. He kept in touch with emails in the weeks before the trip, with suggestions and information about check-in, policies, activities, and more. Like others, we were met at the airport by Julie, who escorted us to the house, showed us around, and then took us on a brief tour of the area and showed us where the grocery store was. We were looking for a relaxing vacation, and so did not utilize her services or insights as much as some others seem to have, but she was responsive to the few questions we had and always friendly.
In summary, the house is great, the location is ideal, and all of my interactions with Dave were positive and professional. If you are looking for a quality home right on the beach and a relaxing vacation, this is a great choice.
Dear Duffy family,
Thank you for your review, we do our best to make sure each family has a wonderful experience here on the island. We love our home and love the Bahamian people and it’s our pleasure to help our guest to experience it as well.
Thank you very much and we hope you and your family visit again.

We stayed at this property for a couple weeks in March. The place was very clean and well furnished when we arrived. Beach is only 100ft away, very quiet beach and friendly. We enjoyed the walk down to the beach bar. Great for kids and families. We will be back again next year.
It exceeded expectations
Perfectly situated house with a view to die for
Thank you Mark. We do hope that we will see you again when you next vacation time arrives. Dave Kimbrell.
I would just like to say this house is incredible
This is my third stay at this property and I just have to say it is well equipped, very clean and comfortable you need not go anywhere everything you need is right there. I spent most of my time in the hammock on the back porch, or I would make a cup of coffee and go out and watch the sunrise every morning ,stunning views very relaxed. It has everything you need to be energetic or everything you need to lay back and unplug and relax and that's what I do when I go there. This house is a home away from home with all the amenities without all the chores truly lovely place to be thank you for a truly wonderful time away
Thank you Janetta for your kind review. I will let the owners know of your stay and your comment. We love our return vacationers. We hope to see you again soon. Dave
Perfect place in paradise
The Blue Inn Villa at Fortune Cay was absolutely perfect for us. We wanted a quiet, serene place to relax, read and catch up with the family and could have imagined a better place. Marc and Lydia’s home is beautiful. The views are incredible. The location is perfect. Brad’s Car Rental was great and Dave K and Ms Woods were awesome in helping us navigate the process from inquiry to check-out. The house has three bedrooms, each with an en suite. The open floor plan allows us to enjoy dinner together each evening. The porch was perfect for morning coffee, the hammock was great for an afternoon nap.
The beach is only steps off of the porch, Banana Bay restaurant is a short walk down the beach. The sunrises every morning were breathtaking and the entire experience was hands down. This is not the place for you if you are looking for hustle, bustle and crazy nightlife (although you can pop down to Taino Beach or Port Lucaya Marketplace for shopping, a taste of authentic local food and live music).
Overall, we could not be happier with our choose to stay here and are grateful to owners, Marc and Lydia, for opening their beautiful home to us. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, secluded beach retreat. #LovedIt!
Amazing as always! Not our 1st time and will be back to Blue Inn again!
Port Lucaya market has all your activities like restaurants, duty free shopping, bars and you can sign up for water activities with The Reef Tours . Unless you just want to leisure on the beach, then you don't have to go anywhere that day. Near the property there is a swimming pool and tennis court use at your pleasure.
