Stop searching. You found it!
We have traveled to more than 50 countries and are hard to impress. But, Grand Bahama and this property are absolute gems -great value and best kept secret in South Atlantic / Caribbean.
GRAND BAHAMA - Quiet, safe, gorgeous empty beaches, great roads, fantastic food, friendly people, and excellent service - without the crowds. Much better value and more relaxing than New Providence (Nassau) and Turks and Caicos. Weather was perfect: 80F / 26C everyday. What’s more, Freeport is a short flight from North American mainland (just 3.5 hours from Montreal). Our only regret is that we didn't find this place sooner! Skip the crowded, overpriced, and touristy locales and come here and get a real, relaxing vacation for half the price.
OMG SERVICE - Belle set us up for success and answered all of our questions before we left. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the wonderful ‘Ms. V’. She connected us with EVERYTHING we needed… best fish markets, restaurants, fishing/snorkeling charters, medical facilities. It was like having a personal concierge!
PROPERTY - Town house is short drive (10 mins) from the airport, and yet is a world away. It is located on a quiet cul de sac backing onto inter-coastal canal within short walk (5 mins) to Taino Beach and Pirates Cove. House is private, quiet, modern, clean, very well appointed, and deceptively spacious. It has large modern kitchen and living area with 4 large bedrooms (including a large loft with two double beds and office) and 3 bathrooms over three levels, complete with free Wifi, cable TV, and AC in every room. Everything you need on site...snorkel gear, beach umbrellas, fishing rods, cleaning supplies, cooking oil, spices, etc. Also has AMAZING BBQ/grill (…OMG…we ate so much BBQ). Grocery store (Solomon's) and liquor store (700s) are co-located a short drive (5 mins) away.
We rarely saw and never heard our neighbours. Our daughters (6 and 9) had complete run of the property and pool. Every morning they would take the fishing rods out of the closet and go down to the canal and catch (and release) colourful Sergeant Majors while we cooked breakfast. One day, we booked a private charter to go fishing and snorkeling. The boat picked us up and dropped us off right at our dock in the backyard.
Amazing property/ experience. Can't wait to go back!
PS - Recommend Brad’s Car Rental. Best Prices. Located in airport terminal. Additional insurance is cheaper than most.
