I have been to the Grand Bahamas many times, but this was the first time in Bottle Bay and I think it is the best area for a relaxing vacation. We stayed in house number 2 and it was perfect. The ocean view is spectacular and the house has all you need. The snorkeling is great and it's right there, my son even caught a lobster. The owner, Kris is very patient and answered all my questions prior to going. The property managers, Kenny and Suzie are very nice and helpful. There is a small grocery near by in the West End and a big one in Eight Mile Rock. We were able to buy conch and lobster in the West End from the locals who go out and catch it daily. The locals are so friendly. There is a good restaurant at Old Bahama Bay, right on the water. Don't miss Lucayan National Park, it's a long drive but well worth it. We would recommend this property and area. We hope to go back soon.
