About George Jamieson
My wife and I (Jackie) are very proud of what we own having worked hard for many years it is a real achievement to own such a lovely apartment in such a nice place. We have been married for 30 years and have two sons, Daniel who is currently studying for his PHD at Manchester and Martyn who is about to start Uni. Jackie works as a Teaching Assistant at an Infant School in Hampshire. I work for BP Shipping in support of the Oil Tanker Fleet. When we have time off we make the most of it and love spending holidays either at Spain or our other property in Florida. Our main residence is at Hayling Island Hampshire where we have lived for 8 years. We love the islands community atmosphere and feel that we belong there.
George Jamieson purchased this Condo in 2005
Why George Jamieson chose Bahama Bay
We had originally decided to have a 4 bedroom villa built just off the 192, but was then invited to look at Bahama Bay. I was adamant that I would not be interested in a "condo" however I was totally blown away when I saw Bahama Bay. Our unit is a Grand Bahama which is the penthouse of the resort. We actually have more floor space than we would have had at the villa with an incredible 1729 square feet. Of course we also have all the added benefits of being on such a well kept tropical resort, with everything on hand from pools, bars or peaceful walks along the nature trail. When you put all of this together with the added bonus that we are so close to Disney, buying at Bahama Bay was the best decision I ever made.
What makes this Condo unique
I think the best thing I can say about the added benefits that come with Bahama Bay would have to be it's location. Once you drive through the secure gates, you are totally away from all the hustle and bustle that you get at other locations. You can spend all day walking around theme parks or the endless shopping Malls and know that you have a nice and quiet location to return to. We quite often spend a day or so of our holiday never leaving the resort, simply laying by pools drinking cocktails and recharging batteries. With the added convenience of being able to eat in, or even go to the restaurant at the resort, (Tradewinds) you never have to go far. I often wonder what would have happened if I had proceeded to buy the 4 bedroom villa as intended. I consider that I had a lucky escape

First, many thanks to George for flexibility on check-in time, since it allowed us to hit-the-road running without our bags. The unit was well furnished and felt homely to return to after the long days at the parks. For first-timers like us, George was good at giving us some additional info which was complemented by the staff at the Resort. Unfortunately we did not plan for enough downtime to enjoy the amenities at the Resort, but we did squeeze in a round of Tennis. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to friends.
Firstly, can I say I would welcome Ben and his family back at any time, and we are really glad he had such a nice time.
We did have a few issues surrounding payments through the website and had to cancel the first attempt at making the reservation completely and start again, this was as far as I can understand not the fault of Ben at all and we are glad he stuck with it and managed to complete the reservation in the end.
Ben requested additional information that I was happy to provide and hope this made his holiday a better experience.
We hope to see this family again in the future and thank them for being our guests.
Lovely clean penthouse condo. Spacious big bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A good sized kitchen. Cable TV in all rooms .So relaxing. Lovely pools, spas and decent gym.Not that far from all the main attractions. 10 to 15 mins to Disney and 20 mins further depending upon the I4 to Universal.Hope to go back in the near future.
Clean, affordable and relaxing
We felt at home here. The facilities were immaculate, the condo was spacious and accommodated all of our needs. The resort was convenient to all the parks. The restaurant was nice to have on site when we wanted an easy place to grab a bite to eat.
Best family holiday ever !!
We had a great stay at Bahama Bay, I can honestly say it is the nicest place we have ever stayed at, the apartment was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We loved the location, near enough to Disney (30 mins away traffic dependent) lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby but also quiet enough to unwind after a busy day at the theme parks. Our 11 year old son appreciated the swimming pool, games room and basketball court.
We made time to visit Mount Dora and Celebration, well worth the effort to have a change from the usual touristy areas.
We were all sad to go home, which is always a good sign of a good holiday.
Hope to return in the next few years, just have to start saving up again.
Thanks George for letting us stay at your apartment.
This is the best part of having guests in our Floridian home, i.e the appreciation that we always seem to get.
Another very nice family that have taken the time to express their gratitude and confirmed just how nice Bahama Bay and our unit really is.
Very many thanks for the positive feedback, you are certainly more than welcome to stay again, but book early we seem to be full all the time now!
Seriously thank you so much, hope to have you back again one day.
First I must mention that due to weather related conditions our travel plans had to change at the last minute and George did all he could to accommodate us. He was very helpful, going out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our vacation. After we finally arrived, four days late, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodations we excellent, the rooms are large and updated and the bathrooms clean, with oversized tubs to enjoy. The kitchen has all you need to cook and feed a large family and the large screened patio perfect to sit at for a meal. The resort itself is very nice, with pools, a restaurant, small beach and walking trails to enjoy. Our young children enjoyed the resort pools as much as they did the trips to Disney. There is a supermarket close by, a few restaurants and Disney is only a 15 minute drive. We would definitely return to Bahama Bay and stay at George's unit.
Lovely stay in Orlando
Property was very clean and well setup. It had plenty of space and accommodated our party of 6 easily. It was a little cumbersome to get to the third level with luggage but we managed. Since there were no condiments, we had to buy everything for a 4 day stay. It would be nice if certain basics were provided - like sugar, salt and pepper. Some of the other apartments we stayed in Orlando had them. We did not use any of the other amenities in the resort, so I can't comment on those but the clubhouse staff was very helpful with some of our requests and questions. Location is a little off the main areas but not too far from restaurants and shops. Overall, a satisfactory stay. I would recommend this property to friends. Thank you George!
