Beautiful Bahamas Quiet spacious apt. includes car

This apartment is half of a duplex – we (the owners) live in the other half. It is very spacious with separate entrance, an open plan living/dining/kitchen area, three bedrooms, one newly remodeled bathroom, screened back patio, laundry room with washer and dryer. The master bedroom has a king size bed. Bedroom two has two twin beds and bedroom three has a full size – all super comfortable. All bedrooms have A/C and space heaters. Fans and all linens are provided. The full kitchen has a gas stove, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and all dishes, etc.
The house is just 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 (drivers must be at least 25 years old). The car is a 2006 Chevy Equinox.
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 - water sports, nature/kayaking tours, lots of great restaurants, golf, shopping and night life.
This duplex apartment comes with cable and wireless internet, dvd player and large selection of movies. Bring your laptop so you can stay in touch with friends and family. The house is secure with air tight, impact resistant windows. It has its own separate yard with a green space behind the property.
Our house is perfect for those who want to be away from the usual touristy traffic - Bird song in the morning is exquisite. The area is a very quiet and peaceful residential neighborhood with few neighbors and lots of woods but we are close enough to hop in the car and be down town 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 two dogs and two cats. They are all friendly and love attention, but they live on our side. Check the calendar for availability for the dates you are traveling and then write us and tell us a bit about yourselves! We would love to have you.

The description of the listing is accurate, and undersells the place. It's well-equipped and large enough for three couples, if one of them didn't mind twin beds. The bed we used in the main bedroom was comfortable. We lounged around the living room and dining room, drove downtown and to both ends of the island, and to the beach, cooked on the hibachi, read books and watched a movie from the house's collection, enjoyed spontaneous treats from Susan and had all our questions and concerns answered. It's in an extremely quiet neighbourhood. Freeport is a planned city, so there are a lot of roads that don't have any houses on them yet, just palm and pine forest: great for walking and jogging around. Yet it's only about fifteen minutes from downtown by car, and there's a big grocery store about ten minutes away.

The owners - who live next door - couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The accommodation is roomy, and there's a garden for BBQs, or just to enjoy the afternoon sunshine. It's away from the 'touristy' areas but only 2 minutes from secluded beaches and 10 from the busier ones. I'd choose this over a hotel any time.

If we had known how much we were going to enjoy Freeport, we would have stayed longer! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and having such wonderful hosts make a world of difference. The home came with the use of a car – a Volvo station wagon. We ended up naming her Penelope – a great car that you'll enjoy driving on the wrong side of the road with :-) She's an older car, so be kind, but she'll take you everywhere you need to go, and then some. Gas is a little pricey in The Bahamas, but the freedom of being able to drive about and explore is priceless. (Note: some of the excursions on the island will charge you less if you drive yourself there and they don't pick you up.) Food is also a little more expensive in The Bahamas, so if you don't want to eat out all the time like us lazy people, the house has a great kitchen equipped with everything you'll need to make a meal. They even provide purified water for you, although tap water is harmful if you decide to drink it. If you're concerned that the owners live right next door, don't be. They won't intrude on your day as much as you won't be intruding on theirs. If you're concerned it doesn't have a pool, you're being silly. You're on Grand Bahama Island with gorgeous beaches. If you're concerned about not being in town, that's moot. You won't notice a difference and you'll really enjoy not being around all the cruise ship / time share/ resort folks all the time. With the use of the car, Port Lucaya Marketplace is just a 10-15 minute drive away. Traffic on the island is pretty light, so you should have no issues getting where you need to go and parking. Highlights of what this home has to offer: * full sized, fully equipped kitchen * cable TV and reliable Internet! * washer and dryer * King-sized bed in the master bedroom with great pillows (we only used 1 room of 3) * Volvo station wagon (Penelope), and she has a couple of beach chairs and umbrellas in the back * silence – the nights were so quiet, and we had no issues with sleeping in either even though the sun was up around 6am * no tourists nearby, which is a huge bonus for us This is definitely the place to stay if you want to get away from it all, yet have all the comforts of home you're used to. We'll be saving to come back for another visit!

We have rented several VRBO homes and apartments but we have never encountered an owner who was so helpful and attentive. Ricardo met us at the house and showed us around. He drove us to the airport on our last day. Ricardo let our kids (age 8, 7 and 2) feed their chickens, which they raise on their half of the backyard. Ricardo and his wife let us use their car, which was a very big help getting around Grand Bahamas Island. The car is old, but runs well. A lot of people we bumped into thought we were locals and I think it was because of the car. I know we got to see a lot more than other people we met who were shuttled from their resorts to their various destinations. The house is a duplex with owners (Ricardo and Susan) sharing the other side of the house. The house was spacious, clean, and well-equipped. Very well equipped and comfortable for our family of five. Ricardo and Susan have a closet full of beach toys for use. The location is a little out of town and certainly not on a beach (if that's what you're looking for), but it easily accessible to the main town (Freeport), various beaches and other destinations with short drives that are usually less than 10 minutes. Certainly the house is very convenient to most beautiful beaches which are out on the West side of the island. The house has all the usual amenities, a nice collection of DVD's for viewing, WIFI, cable TV (if you want to spend time on those things), and of course air-conditioning. Susan was out of town the week we were there, so we didn't avail ourselves of them cooking a meal for us or one of Susan's therapeutic massages. Overall the house is clean and simple and inexpensive. It's a little out of the way but everything you might want to do in the Bahamas. The owners add personal touches and make you feel very welcome, which is what really makes trips and places memorable. Staying at Susan and Ricardo's place is a wonderful way to see Grand Bahamas island.

My husband and I stayed at Susan and Ricardo's vacation rental for a week and our son and his wife joined us for part of the stay. The rental was better than we could possibly have expected! The unit is newly renovated and spotless. It's huge, so perfect for two couples (or family)...basically two bedroom and washroom areas so you have your own space. The internet is fast and the very large television screen with lots of choice is great. Ricardo did a great job of introducing us to the rental and gave us lots of information about things to do on the island. He and Susan were always available to answer questions and even provided us with a cell phone in case we needed help while out and about. You do need a car but the beauty is that the rental comes with one so that's covered. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to friends and family and intend on returning in the future.

I highly recommend this lovely spacious duplex which is in a very beautiful and safe neighborhood in a quieter area of the island. The apartment has full kitchen,a wide variety of books, games and dvds, in addition to very stable wi-fi and loads of cable stations. It was wonderful to have a car to explore the island with. Our hosts Susan and Ricardo were so gracious. Our first night there Susan had prepared an amazing vegetarian meal for us - delicious and what a way to unwind from our trip there. Beaches are within a very short drive. Groceries and other stores close by also. No crazy crowded tourist areas to contend with yet a short distance from from Port Lucaya. Be sure to visit Fortune Beach and Banana Bay Restaurant for a fun afternoon. Both are just down the street from their apartment. We highly recommend the apartment for everyone from adventure seekers, romantic getaway, people with disabilities, sightseeing, pet owners, families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, girls getaway. You will enjoy your stay immensely.

Thanks to Ricardo and Susan our vacation during the week of "hurrican Sandy" was quite the adventure. We were very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, spaciousness, and comfort of the house. Thank goodness for the gas stove which enabled us to warm up food despite the four day power outage. We felt very safe and secure and given the location of the home on "higher land' vs. the other end of the Island we received no flooding. With the use of the car we were able to explore the Island and with a beach just down the road we were thrilled to take in a "moonlit" walk on the pristine white sands. Ricardo and Susan were the most amazing hosts helping us with any questions we had and there to offer us help in the "unique" situation we encountered. If you have a chance ask Susan if she would be willing to be your Private Chef as she is an amazing cook. Susan and Ricardo went so beyond what you could imagine or expect from another owner managed rental property, the personal touch of having the owners living next door made the difference between what would have been a complete loss to a great adventure and the start of a great friendship. We will be back for sure! Cheers to Susan and Ricardo! Sandra and Troy, Ontario, Canada

It all really starts with Susan and Ricardo. These folks are so kind, considerate and concerned for your well-being it makes the rest of the process effortless. The apartment is beautiful, clean, bright and safe. It's in a quiet neighborhood, a few miles outside the city but well worth it and close to the beaches. Really only have good things to say; you won't regret it.

I was looking for a quiet place to relax for my teenaged son and I. We wanted to stay some place where we each had our own space and a full kitchen. We also didn't want to be in the middle of all the tourist spots but still close enough to the activity to enjoy it. Susan and Ricardo's place was perfect! More than enough space, very clean and comfortable. And I have to say that their suggestions for activities and advice made our vacation even better. They were very gracious hosts. While there I had one of Susan's massages - Wow! And we also had family pictures taken at the beach with Bahamas Papaya Productions - great photos to remind us of our stay. I hope to go back next summer!

Wir wurden schon am Airport abgeholt. Die Vermieter sind sehr nette, warmherzige Menschen, die einem den Aufenthalt sehr angenehm machen. Das Haus hat eine schöne Lage, nahe an sehr schönen Stränden. Das zur Verfügung gestellte Auto ist ein sehr alter Volvo, aber er hat uns zu jeder Ecke auf der Insel gut gebracht. Und man fällt mit diesem Auto nicht als Tourist auf. Das Haus ist sehr geräumig und nett eingerichtet. Alles sehr sauber und man kann sich dort gut selbst versorgen. Alles in allem empfehlenswert und von Preis-Leistungsverhältnis top.

We lived in the house for 9 days and found it to be an excellent platform for our bonefish flyfishing adventure on Grand Bahamas. The included car was, albeit the age :), perfect to provide mobility to any destination along the shoreline and the large living room/kitchen was a great bonus when returning to the house for relaxation and cooking in the kitchen etc. In all, the service including airport pickup, brief tour to see groceries etc., provision of prepaid telephone, car, drinking water and fresh avocados was beyond any of our expectations. Thank you ! We'll be back! Regards Søren, Henrik, Lars

We enjoyed a week of solitude and doing nothing in particular. Ricardo kindly picked us up when we arrived and delivered us back to the Port when we left. The house was virtually spotless and even roomier than our own place back home. The washer and drier was a great convenience. The use of the car was the most valuable extra. We were able to go to the store and cook at home, and go anywhere we wanted freely, even thought we did flatten a tire on the car. Fortunately it went flat in the driveway overnight, and Ricardo got it fixed while we made breakfast. The house is in a quiet undeveloped neighborhood right down the road from what we found to be the most beautiful and best beachside restaurant on the island. Next time we come back to GBI, we'll be checking with Ricardo and Susan for availability.

First, owners Ricardo and Susan are great to deal with. While always available if we needed anything, they gave us complete privacy. The "apartment" is bigger than many homes, and was clean, well furnished, and cozy. One of the prettiest beaches on the island is just a short drive away, making the SUV included a major bonus. The location provides easy access to both the east and west sides of the island. Totally enjoyed our time spent here, and will certainly be booking again!!!

Das Haus ist riesig, sauber und es fehlt an nichts. Auch das man benutzen kann ist super um die Insel zu entdecken. Der Gastgeber Ricardo ist super nett und holt einen an der Fähre ab und bringt einen wieder zurück.

It has been a very nice experience our trip to Bahamas and being at Ricardo and Susan House. It has everything you need. Everything is quite close in Grand Bahama and the option to have a car with the rent of the House is a very good option. Just take into account if you have any incident with the car Ricardo will be there to help. So easy!!! Don’t be afraid to chose their House as your experience in Grand Bahama!!! For sure will be our first option if we come back to Bahamas. Àlex
