The Space

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

  • My husband and our moms stayed 4 nights at Susan and Ricardo's and we all loved it. The place is spacious and had all the amenities we could ask for. It was nice to be removed from the tourist area, and we used the car so we could see the entire island. The best beach we swam at all trip was just a 2 minute drive down the road. Its a public beach, but was almost empty and very safe. Susan and Ricardo were wonderful hosts and it was nice to have home to come back to after our days adventures instead of a hotel room. Highly recommended.

  • Susan and Ricardo were wonderful hosts! The apartment was just what we were hoping for: quiet, clean and close to a wonderful beach. I would highly recommend Susan and Ricardo's place if you're looking for something other than the large hotels and busy tourist areas.

  • First of all we would like to thank Ricardo, Susan and the whole family for this great time on Grand Bahama. They are just wonderful hosts and we are grateful that we had the opportunity to meet them. The property is spacious, clean and exceeded our expectations. We had wonderful BBQ in the garden und enjoyed a cold drink on the patio. The car (which is included) is the best way to explore the island. It is just a 2-minute drive to get to one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. We definitely plan to come back to this beautiful island and this place already feels like home!

  • We had a wonderful time in Freeport.
    The apartment was very clean and very spacious. Susan and her husband were very friendly and helpful hosts.
    Just the perfect place to stay on Grand Bahama Island.

  • Susan and Ricardo were the perfect hosts, warm and friendly, but also very respectful of privacy. Their house was way beyond our expectations, bright, airy and spacious, and even equipped with board games, books and the friendliest cat in the universe just outside. We stayed with our two children and never wanted to leave!

  • Susan and Ricardo were the greatest hosts. They could not be more welcoming and warm. The apartment is spacious and has everything one would need -- it even had everything we needed for our infant! Freeport has several wonderful attractions. Highly, highly recommend!

  • Susan and Ricardo's apartment on Grand Bahama provided the perfect venue for our little winter getaway vacation. The apartment was exactly as promised - very spacious and fully stocked. Susan and Ricardo went out of their way to accommodate us, right down to shuffling their schedule around so that our toddler could have a nap before our evening flight home. We would stay here again in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.

  • We were three German students traveling for almost five weeks. We stayed at Susan's and Ricardo's house over Christmas. We loved staying there. We had our own place, the house is big and well equipped with all you need. Susan and Ricardo are the best hosts one can wish for; they invited us to show us around their little farm, we enjoyed feeding the chickens and fish. Susan's and her daughter invited us going to paradise cove for an awesome snorkeling adventure. I highly recommend going there while staying with them. The beach is very close too if you just want to relax at the beach for a day. A car is included in the place and it helps to get around easily and to explore the island, which we loved very much. Thank you again for everything and making us feel so welcome!! Greetings from Florida :)

  • My family and I stayed in this property for 2 weeks. This was more of a business trip for us (visiting a sick relative who ended up passing away) so we did not do a lot of vacation-based activities. That said, Susan and Ricardo were excellent Hosts. The property we stayed in met and exceeded all of our expectations. We wanted a spacious, clean and safe place to stay that was far away from the normal touristy-type fan-fare. My family and I enjoyed our stay with Susan and Ricardo and would highly recommend their place to anyone, especially a group or family. We are giving Susan & Ricardo 5 out of 5 Stars for both being ideal hosts and for preparing an excellent property!

    OVERALL DETAILS: The property is one half of a duplex and has 3 bedrooms, office, 2 full bathrooms, screened-in back porch, secluded back yard, awesome kitchen and is Island-styled throughout. All the rooms were clean, spacious and well decorated. Susan and Ricardo thought of everything. The pictures Susan provided on their AirBnB site are 100% what you see when you get there (inside and out). This property was so beautifully decorated that if it were for sale my wife and I would buy it :- ) The car and cell phone that came with the property was a HUGE plus. Another bonus was that Ricardo picked us up from the Airport when we came in and dropped us to the Airport when we left. As I mentioned, they thought of everything!

    ROOM DETAILS: Master Bedroom had a huge King size bed, nice size bathroom and a large walk-in closet. Bedroom No. 2 had two twin beds. Bedroom No. 3 has a queen bed. The office had a desk and a pull-out sofa if you need more beds. The second (hallway) bathroom was very spacious. The open design of the rest of the house was great for just hanging out and the house came with lots of family-styled board games and books when the rain kept us indoors.

    LOCATION DETAILS: The house is just 10-15 minutes from Fortune Beach, where there is nice beach-front restaurant. The car came in handy because the property is about 15-20 minutes from Downtown Freeport or the Fort Lucaya Marketplace area.

    I want to thank Susan and Ricardo for being perfect Hosts and for sharing their wonderful property with us.

About
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 and the UK, Australia. Next up Iceland and 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/chicken farmer and an enthusiastic board gamer! (always up for a challenge) I look forward to meeting you!
