My husband & I stayed at Sandy Beach Villas for nearly a week with another couple. The 2-bedroom villa had plenty of space, everything was clean and we had everything we needed. We could hear the surf from our bedroom, what a treat!
Steve is an EXCELLENT host who goes above the call of duty to make sure his guests enjoy their stay. He provided us with snorkelling gear, spears for lobster hunting (which was a huge success - fresh lobster for dinner two nights in a row! Once courtesy of Steve's mother who lives across the street & is a fantastic cook, and the second night we cooked them ourselves in our amply supplied kitchen), took us out on his boat to fish and snorkel the blue holes, gave us plenty of fishing advice, made kayaks available... couldn't ask for a better host.
Pelican Point is a good hour outside of Freeport/Lucaya, so you'll need a rental car (& map!) and should stock up on food/bottled water before you drive out to the villas. Food is pricey since it's all imported, so we brought plenty of 'camping snacks' from home too. The advantage of this distance is that you won't be fighting crowds for beach space and you'll get to explore miles of beach and ocean without seeing a soul; if you need lots of city entertainment/ night life provided you might be happier staying at a big resort.
The beach itself is perfect - miles of white sand, crystal clear water, and many other beaches to explore within walking or driving distance. About 50ft down the beach from the Villas is a restaurant/bar (fairly new, I believe) called Bahama John's, where you can find some of the best BBQ and seafood you will ever eat. Bring cash if you plan to try it out (and we strongly recommend that you do!).
We left our 2yo daughter at home with grandparents this time, but we could easily have brought her along. The Villas are so close to the beach, and everyone we met was so friendly and kind, that I would've felt totally comfortable leaving her inside napping and going to lay out in the hammock! Pretty kid-proof inside too.
This is probably not a wheelchair-accessible vacation, if that's something you need to consider, since all the Villas do have steps leading to the front & back porches, and paths are sandy not paved.
Other than that, we'd recommend Sandy Beach Villas to anyone, and would love to go back! We felt so refreshed by the end of our time there, not only by the stunning surrounding but also the hospitality of our Bahamian hosts. Thanks, Steve!!
