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!!

If you like being off the beaten path this place is for you. We were there on July for a week and literally had a half of mile of beautiful beach to our selves. Inland the weather was hot and steamy but with the ocean breeze the oceanfront was amazing. Steve and his mom were the nicest people you will ever meet. They will make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need to truly enjoy your stay. He went out of his way to take us fishing so we can have fresh fish to eat and checked on us few times throughout the trip to make sure we were having a fabulous time. The beaches were pristine and the villas were beautiful and modernly furnished. We can't wait to be back!!....Hi Steve we will see you soon, hopefully this year!

Beautiful escape

This is the perfect escape destination. There are five houses here and during most of our stay we were the only visitors. We had a private beach and beautiful weather.
Because the town is so isolated, you must be sure to purchase everything you will need prior to arrival - this includes food and drink, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. There is nothing nearby. The town has about 15 homes and no store - the nearest store is in Freeport.
The homes offer all you could need unless you are very particular. The basics are there, the homes are clean, and Steve will make sure any outstanding needs are taken care of. If you're looking to be waited on hand and foot, however, go elsewhere. You'll track sand in to the house, you'll discover what sand flies are, and you'll love it the whole time. We will never forget this trip.

Perfect Honeymoon

Please visit the website for more pictures and a video. My wife and I had a very pleasant time during the visit. After renting a car from the airport, we drove very easily to the village. We were essentially amazed by the crystal blue waters, the tranquility of mornings and how less people there were than in resort areas. This is a truly experiance "What bahamas is all about!" Steve and his mom as well as the community are very respectful of privacy so I recommend this place to honeymooners. He made us feel safe and entertained. We went snorkeling to see coral reefs, water skiing, conch catching, and drank fresh coconut water. On some days we drove into Freeport on the way to the port.

If you decide to rent, then ask Steve if he can stock your refrigerator with waters, food, or snacks.

We had a memorable time.

Thanks

Just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay at Sandy Beach Villas with my husband & 18 yr old son. You can believe everything you read about Steve Laing and his villas. He is a very nice guy and an awesome host. He gets great pleasure in taking care of his guests. Whatever you need he will make sure it is taken care of. And his Mom who lives across the street is a very sweet lady who is always there to help with whatever you need. Make sure to order some dinners from her, she is known to be the best cook on the island for cracked lobster. Her cracked conch is also the best. We had many trips in his boat fishing and caught some great fish and had a couple of big fish frys with the other guests in the other villas.
If you look left or right on the beach, you see sand and beautiful turquoise water for as far as the eye can see. You never see more than a few people at the beach and many times there is no one else. It is awesome. Very peaceful, secluded and private but very safe. I went out walking and jogging alone in the very early am many times. You are right at the ocean,s edge and can hear the ocean from inside the villa. It is so serene and relaxing. Some nights we had a bonfire right there on the beach. The water is very shallow for quite a way, good for children.
We had a great time with the other guests and some of Steve's family & even Patrick, the neighbour across the street. They made us feel like part of the family. Everyone we met on the island was overly friendly and nice. We will definitely be back and are telling everyone we know to go and stay at Steve's villas.
