About The Owner

We are very friendly and love to welcome new guests to the beauty of Paradise in the Bahamas at LaughingBird apartments.

We are located on the beach, right across from LaughingBird cay, from which our hotel gets its name. So come on down and bring your swimsuit so you can soak up some of the balmy weather and the tropical sun.

Excellent

Excellent lodging, great views, beautiful grounds, fantastic location! Ms. Jean was such an elegant lady and gracious host and full of information and historic tales. I would recommend to anyone! We loved it. We spent the last 4 days of an 11 day trip to the Bahamas and wished we had spent them all at this location. Don't miss the Friday night fish fry, and the bakery with fresh breads and sweets only a 2 block walk.
