About this listing
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.
Great house on grand bahama and lovely hosts! Everything is just as shown on the pictures or even bigger. The patio has a mosquito protection around it which helps a lot!!
Ricardo was really sweet and picked us up from the airport and also dropped us there on our way back. We got some insider informations from him and got to see his own farm including fresh breakfast eggs.
The car is needed and very useful: old but gold!
We would stay there again anytime.
Quiet and full equiped house . We had every thing we need. Near the best beautiful beach of the Island . Lucky with the car! Susan and Ricardo are very friendly! Thank you for everything!
Ricardo and Susan were excellent host, they thought of everything for their home we had a cell phone and a car for our use. They took the time to come over and tell us the points of interest. We even met their beautiful daughter who took the time to show us around. We could not be happier with their house it was very spacious. We highly recommend Susan.
This house is clean, spacious and quiet. It is a fully equipped house with a kitchen that comes with essentials: drinking water, cooking oil, rice, pasta and others. You can find beach towels and other accessories.
We were 4 people and had plenty of space.
Susan and Ricardo are great hosts. Very nice and friendly and helpful. They will tell you what to do on the island. They gave us a car and a cell phone with local number to use whole staying in their house.
This was s great experience and we will go back to the same place when going back to the island.
It was really a great pleasure to stay at Susan's and Ricardo's place. They were so warm and welcoming and had tons of ideas of what to do on the island. Also, we could ask them about things whenever we wanted. As we arrived at the airport, Ricardo picked us up and showed us the most important places and made some suggestions where to have lunch and dinner. As we were all under 25 they arranged that we get a young drivers insurance for their Volvo so that we could use the car. They have a beautiful and huge apartment in which you will find everything you need. Towels, linens, WiFi, AC, TV, DVD, laundry room, nice backyard (with additional table and chairs in the patio). The apartment is located in a really nice and quiet area and with your Sweeting-sponsored car you are at the beach within 5 minutes and in town within 10 minutes. Also it is not far away from a beautiful national park with beach and the "garden of the groves" - two must sees on the island! So all together, we highly recommend everybody to stay at their place and we will definitely try to come back! Thank you for everything!
Susan and Ricardo were very friendly and great hosts. We were 14 days in this apartment. It was a perfect place to relax for two weeks. We had everything that we needed . The car,the mobile phone and the maps was wonderful to have. They helped us always, when we had a question.
The fortune beach and " banana bay" were amazing and the location is perfect. We did a lot of things and after a daytrip it felt like coming home
oooh we love this island ...we will never forget this magical place
thank u for all
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!
