This apartment is half of a duplex - we live in the other half. It is very spacious with an open plan living/dining/kitchen area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study/extra bedroom, screened back patio, laundry room with washer and dryer. The master bedroom has an en suite bath and walk in closet. The second bath is shared by the other bedrooms. All bedrooms have A/C and space heaters. Fans and all linens and towels are provided.
The full kitchen has a gas stove, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and all dishes, etc. You have a large separate back yard.
The house is a mile and half from a beautiful beach and a local beach side restaurant. It is located 15 minutes from the center of town, reachable by the car, which is included in the cost of the rental (includes insurance but drivers must be at least 25 years old). It is a Volvo station wagon.
Since we are located on the eastern side of town, we are just a mile from the Casuarina bridge, which takes you to East end, home of some of the country's most beautiful, pristine and secluded beaches, Lucayan National Park and the famous Bishops bar and grill.
Freeport is home to many activities - diving and other water sports, golf, nature/kayaking tours, horse riding, lots of great restaurants, shopping and night life.
Our house is perfect for those who want to be away from the usual touristy traffic - very quiet and peaceful, but close enough to hop in the car and be there in a short drive.
Plus, I am a massage therapist and I live right next door! How convenient is that?? :)
My husband and I will welcome you and make you feel right at home. We have three dogs and a cat. They are all friendly and love attention, but they live on our side. The cat may come and visit, but you can keep your screen door closed if you are not up for feline visitors.
Write us and tell us a bit about yourselves! We would love to have you.
Our neighborhood is very quiet with few neighbors and lots of pine woods around. There are track roads for walking and jogging and a beautiful beach is very near by.
There is very limited public transportation, but the house includes a car, which you will need to get around.
Smoking outside only.
Please turn off all A/C units/fans when you leave the house.
Please be respectful of the property and treat it like your own. Leave it as you found it.
Return car with full tank of gas. Cost to refill empty car will be taken out of security deposit.
Susan and Ricardo are both warm, welcoming, and kind people. They were so accommodating throughout our stay. Ricardo picked us up from the airport and was kind enough to wait for 45 minutes for us because of a plane delay. He also took us back to the airport at the end of our stay. When we first arrived at the house we were pleasantly surprised because it is much larger than it appears in the photos! We had tons of space for just two people, and the house was clean, stocked with all the essentials, and we were even provided a local cellphone to use while on the island. Susan and Ricardo sat down with us and showed us some maps and different destinations on the maps we may be interested in, which was really helpful to get us situated. We had a quick tour of the place, and then they left us to settle in. If we needed them, they were just next door or a quick phone call away. We did end up contacting them a couple times with some questions, and they were again welcoming and available to us right away if we needed.
The use of a car was an amazing opportunity to explore the island and get ourselves around. Big plus for renting here! There is an adorable screened in patio at the back of the house which was amazing to sit on in the evenings.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend to anyone else the same thing. Freeport was an awesome place to stay for a quiet Bahamian vacation. Lots of gorgeous beaches nearby.
Thank you Susan and Ricardo for having my best friend and I at your beautiful Bahamian home!
I know many people have said it all ready but this was a wonderful place to stay. (it was so big that was only used half of the space) The car was great for getting around we drive from one end of the Island to the other using the car. With out it we could't have done any of the stuff we did. Plus they gave us a cell phone to use so that we won't have to ours, which was great if we had got lost or in any trouble. Which we didn't. Please when they greeted us we sat and talked about what to do and other items on our list. Would stay again if in the area.
There are not enough good things to say about Susan and Ricardo. Because of their hospitality and Kindness it was the best trip my wife and I have ever had. Everything was as advertised in the write-up and then some. When we arrived (which was early) Susan and Ricardo made sure we had a place to put our stuff and clear instructions on getting to the beach, they even have a local cellphone you can use if you need anything. When we officially checked-in we had a binder of helpful tips and great ideas for things to see and do. The car worked out perfectly and allowed us to feel like locals on the island. Everything was so well done and so perfect we are already planning our return with our families next year. Again I can’t say enough kind things about Susan and Ricardo, truly thank you for making our stay so warm, welcoming and perfect.
Die Gastgeber waren bei unserer Ankunft persönlich anwesend, das Haus war perfekt vorbereitet. Das Haus eignet sich sehr gut für größere Gruppen, das Auto ist aufgrund der ein wenig abgelegenen Lage erforderlich, ist aber auch toll da man die Insel damit erkunden kann, was sehr lohnenswert ist. Selber in der großen Küche kochen ist in Anbetracht des exhorbitanten Preisniveaus auf Grand Bahama viel wert. Lediglich die "Ruhelage" ist nicht ganz wahr, denn das Haus liegt an einer Hauptstraße, die aber in der Nacht kaum befahren ist. Alles in Allem ein gutes Gesamtpaket.
I'd like just to join to all positive reviews here and add that the way how to meet and host people, which Susan and Ricardo had chosen, is the way i wish every host would choose. It was a great pleasure. Volvo is awesome also!
Lovely hosts, great spacious house and beautiful island. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.
Then Bahamas , The House and Susan and Ricardo are just Amazing. WE had such a good time and didnt miss anything.
The hospitality was Perfect and we even had our own Car with the House.
I Would Always recommend that Place to My friends and Family.
I am a world citizen and I LOVE the Airbnb concept. I love to host and meet new people and travel and see new places and sometimes my husband travels with me. We're working on the bucket list - checked off Israel, Paris, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, the UK, Australia, Iceland, Denmark. Next up Peru. Everytime one gets checked off, a new one gets added. . .
I love to meet and talk to new people about life! It always makes me realize we are all one big family! I am a massage therapist/doula/pastry baker/artist/chef of sorts/aquaponic farmer and an enthusiastic board gamer! (always up for a challenge) I look forward to meeting you!
