We have stayed here before and were looking forward to another excellent stay, but world circumstances cut our vacation short. George was very understanding and we couldn't have been more pleased with the time we were able to spend in this beautiful condo. Everything was super clean when we arrived . Since all the attractions were closed, we spent our time in the condo and only went out for walks and to get groceries once. Due to the worsening covid-19 crisis, we opted to leave after only 5 nights and head home. We hope to be able to come back after things have gotten back to normal and be able to enjoy all this resort has to offer. I highly recommend this particular condo due to its location, its cleanliness and its very accommodating owner.
What a wonderful guest, such a pleasure to welcome her and her family back.
Such a shame the trip was cut short, and as it has turned out, this is to be our last guest for some time.
Cannot wait for things to get back to normal and to welcome our valued guests such as this lovely lady back again., she will always be welcome.
Clean and Convenient
Before we arrived, George promptly provided responses regarding our late-night check-in. The clubhouse / front desk staff were friendly and always available. The space was roomy and quiet, felt like your own private residence, and exactly as described and pictured in the listing. Location within the property was great! Our family favorite was the large screened-in deck area and being able to open the sliders in December!!
Kate and her family were perfect guests and would certainly be welcomed again. We very much appreciate the fact they took the time to write such a nice review and hope to hear from them again in the future.
Platinum listings mean nothing
I am guessing that owners can rate their own properties as they wish because I have holidayed in platinum properties on 5 other occasions and this property was not even silver , it was filthy , tired and had probably hosted a swingers night party , I will not hold back my anger and if it wasn’t for the manager , who the next day put us in a new appt when she didn’t need to , it would of ruined my wife’s 50th birthday surprise
I have to say how disappointed I am with this review and we would certainly not encourage other owners to have this person as a guest again.
We do not have the ability to choose our own ratings, and I have always been very proud that our unit is considered as one of the best at the resort and deserves its platinum rating.
This review should be ignored, as the guest did not substantiate any of his claims. When the guest first contacted me it was to tell me he would not stay in our apartment and had moved somewhere else. He made some claims about hygiene and smell, which obviously was of great concern to me. I immediately contacted the resort and asked the senior manager to go to my apartment and check things out. She sent me an email to confirm the condition, and to quote her own words:
“The unit was clean, there was no odour, no spots on the carpet, furniture, beds, etc. all in good shape. The inspector said there was no odour yesterday when she prepped the unit for the guest’s arrival."
I then asked this guest if he would please go back to my unit with the manager to explain what was wrong, he refused to do this. He also refused to provide me with any evidence photos etc. The other point that surprised me was that he did not ask front desk to send somebody to the unit to explain what was wrong on arrival.
I did not want to upset the guest any further so we (resort management and myself) agreed to leave him in the unit he had moved to and forgo all charges. This meant that I did not receive any rental income.
There is not really much more I can say except to encourage future guests to read the other reviews posted, including the feedback received from the guest that had just vacated the unit and has now booked again for next year.
This is a beautiful condo, clean and comfortable. Take note that it is on the 3rd floor with no elevator, but that is already explained in the description. George is wonderful to work with. We had one minor problem that was immediately taken care of by maintenance. Can't wait to return in March!!. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place!!!!!
This guest is always welcome; in fact she has already booked again for next year!
She did joke with me in an email about the lack of an elevator, I responded that I like things this way as it keeps me fit.
Seriously, great family and I look forward to having them as our guests again next year.
We had the most wonderful stay in this third floor apartment in the Bahama Bay resort in Florida. My two teenagers (19 and 15) enjoyed the privacy of their own rooms and shared an enormous bathroom while myself and my husband relished the peace and quiet of our own suite complete with balcony. The resort itself is exceptional with a number of quality pools to choose from. The apartment is very close to a large pool with bar, man made beach and the beautiful lake, and this was the pool that we frequented most often. Pool and ping pong tables are available for use. The resort is very conveniently located close to the Disney parks, 20 minutes from Animal Kingdom and less than 30 to all the other parks. Universal is slightly further away, around 40 minutes. We tended to head to the parks for early morning and late evening and returned to the pool in the afternoon to relax and escape from the soaring mid day temperatures, and found this very easy to do. Everything you need is available in the apartment, the kitchen is very well equipped and there are plenty of towels including pool towels. We made good use of the washing machine and dryer having travelled with just hand luggage. As a family we would most definitely stay in this resort and apartment again without hesitation. Many thanks for a great holiday.

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
