About Lesley/Alison

Hello, my wife and I have travelled with our children to various islands in the Caribbean, but we felt most at home on Grand Bahama Island. I have a contracting company in Ontario Canada and had been searching for the right property on which to build our vacation home.

Lesley/Alison purchased this house in 2003

Why Lesley/Alison chose Grand Bahama Island

The Goodfellow family has vacationed on Grand Bahama for more than 15 years and enjoyed the area and local people so much they built a home on Pelican Point in the late 1990's.

The demands of the construction industry in Canada kept the Goodfellow family in the North a great deal of time and they decided to try share their vacation home by renting it out when not in residence. This proved successful and when they decided to build a larger home, they looked for the best beach they could find on the island of Grand Bahama.

They located a large lot on Golden Beach and in 2003 completed work on this current home near Freetown.

What makes this house unique

From the spacious luxury of the interior to the whisper of the ocean out in front, this feels like our little slice of heaven on earth.

It's a great place for a family get-together or a small wedding and we can recommend photographers, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our stay was, as before, perfectly wonderful. The accommodations are so well-planned for a group, and the weather, and even the airlines, all cooperated beautifully.

Stepping in the front door, even after several stays, is always a delightful surprise---every bit as good as you remember.

The new porch furniture is perfect. It is our hope to be able to return next year."

1st Class Beach House Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This house blow me and my friends away. It is first class all the way. And the ocean views from the rooms are amazing. The beach in your backyard felt like your own private beach because there is no one around. The only down side might be an upside, it is a 30 minute drive to the center of Freeport, to where all the action and people are. If you are looking to get away from the busy then this house will exceed all your expectations.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is awesome, on the East part of the island where you can find the most wonderful beaches. The house itself is excellent, well built, lots of space,beautiful inside with spacious rooms, and lovely views of the garden,ocean,beach. Everything was nice and clean,fully equipped kitchen, nicely kept garden,and beautiful Tiki Hut in front with the fabulous view of the turquoise blue ocean. All commend to the owner for such a high quality built house !

Everything was well organised, we were nicely welcomed by Patricia who showed us around. We were a party of 10 (5 adults, 5 children) that enjoyed this holiday very much as we spent a week in the most beautiful place. We would recommend this property to anyone seeking a holiday in paradise away from hectic lifestyle of the cities. Port Lucaya is a nice lively place, lots of restaurants, activities, we liked Agave restaurant the best. Bishop's place is great ( lovely Bahama mama cocktails),we would recommend it to everyone. Solomon's Market is excellent, well supplied, the prices are not as high as we expected.

Our overall impression is that Grand Bahama is a beautiful island, with nice people, lovely nature. Goodfellow house is great, more beautiful then shown in the pictures, and we would highly recommend it .

FABULOUS BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us had plenty of room in this huge, wonderfully constructed home with an ocean view. Bring your water shoes as it is rocky off of the Tiki Hut but that did not hinder us as we walked the beautiful beach everyday and played in the clear water with a sand bottom that stretched forever in waist-deep water. Enjoyed the tube floats in the garage! Suggestion for the owner would be to correct the website as the beds (other than the one king & room with the two singles) are double beds and NOT queens as listed. For a million dollar plus property, they should be queens as listed. The property manager, Patricia, was wonderful and attentive to us! Thanks for the awesome rental and I highly recommend the Lucayan National Park kayak tour through the mangroves.

Owner's Response: Hi there, thanks for the excellent review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We had Patricia measure the beds and they are in fact Queens. A double bed is 54 x 75. A queen bed is 60 x 80. Patricia is indeed a treasure and we love the Lucayan National Park!

Everything and more!!!

  • 5 of 5

As many others have said, the pictures do not do this property justice. The beach is magnificent, the home is beautiful, about as perfect a beach vacation as you can ask for. Six adults shared this home and we all had plenty of room. Kitchen was well supplied. Mainly we just enjoyed the property and the water. I caught fish all around the area, went swimming, floated on the tubes (from the garage), snorkeled, threw the Frisbee and just enjoyed the privacy. The Tiki Hut was a great spot to sit and relax out of the sun. All in all just a great vacation. Would highly recommend this home to all looking for a relaxing beach vacation.

Look no further - this is where you want to be!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation I've ever been on, and the Goodfellow House was a huge factor in that. Highlights included - the house, the beach, and our very own tiki hut. We had a group of seven and there was plenty of room to gather all together, or have space to be on our own if we wanted. Being able to swim right in your own backyard is a huge plus - the water is as clear as a pool - great if you want to snorkel, too. There are so many wonderful things to experience on this island: horseback riding on the beach (VERY HIGHLY recommend Trikk Pony Adventures for this), the food, and the locals. Once we got the lay of the land, it was simple to get from one place to the next. There were no bad views in any direction. The Garden of the Groves was wonderful with it's rainforest-like trees, plants, birds, and waterfalls. Pelican Point was also an awesome afternoon trip - so great to eat right there, and then spend time on the beach. Taino Beach was great on our last day (heard they have an awesome fish fry night on the beach on Wednesdays). We strolled on the beach while we waited for our lunch to arrive - just perfect! A drive out to the West End was really nice - we got to see piles of conch shells - very cool. Port Lucaya was great for shopping, and looking at the boats in the marina - lots of little bars and restaurants to explore. And when we were done with our daily exploring, coming "home" to this house was the most wonderful feeling! Don't bother looking anywhere else - just book the Goodfellow house!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us shared this gorgeous, big house. It has plenty of space for our whole family. Three of the bedrooms look out over the ocean. You can watch the sun rise from the porch and the sun set from the beach.

We all had a grand time. The beautiful, big beach is a terrific place to relax, play games, or take a long walk. Having a beach like this one all to ourselves was remarkable. We enjoyed going to 2 local restaurants in High Rock as well as restaurants in Lucaya. We went snorkeling at 2 locations- interesting tropical fish and coral. We took the Swim with the Dolphin trip with Unexso - fabulous. We also enjoyed the Garden on the Grove.
