Overview

Bahama Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleep 6-8 people

Bahama Bay is a beautiful, Caribbean-style, 24 hour gated resort on the banks of picturesque Lake Davenport; our vacation home, the Grand Bahama is the most spacious of the three bedroom villas, not to be compared with the smaller Abacos. With more than 1,700 square feet of air-conditioned penthouse comfort, the villa provides the epitome of quiet relaxation. The best beaches in America are just forty five minutes away, or you can venture onto the many championship golf courses or take the family to world renowned adventure parks, such as Disney, Universal, Sea World. That's when you are not enjoying Bahama Bay Resort’s many fabulous amenities, which include 17,000 sq.ft. recreation center & clubhouse, pool bar & grille, four swimming pools with whirlpools, children's pool & play area, full service spa & salon, fitness facility, Internet access, mini-market, volleyball, basketball, tennis, billiards, walking trails, sandy beach, fishing, and more!

Dining Options On-Site: At Bahama Bay Resort when it comes to dining you can have the best of both worlds... If your passion is cooking or saving on food cost, then our self-catering villa is perfect for you. There is a store within the resort where you can buy basic grocery items, but if you're looking forsomething specific then there are both Publix (supermarket) and Walmart Superstore (supermarket/department - open 24hours) stores just minutes away. There may, however, be times when you want to eat out... 'Mambo's' is a casual poolside grill where you can get snacks throughout the day. You can even have pizzas delivered to you in your villa! 'Tradewinds' lakeside restaurant serves buffet breakfasts and alfresco lunches. The dinner menu is extremely varied and we’re sure there’s something for the most discriminating palate! Need a drink? There are two poolside bars and the 'Tradewinds' cocktail bar, offering weekly activities (Karaoke), happy hour and live entertainment.

Dining Options Off-Site: If you wish to try some local establishments, ‘Orlando Ale House' boasts the best for daily specials on food and drink! Or for the family with varied tastebuds, 'Golden Corral' is a good inexpensive buffet. These are just a few of the various establishments found in the vicinity, from pizza to sushi..

About Chris and Nicole

This is Chris and Nicole from Toronto, Canada! We are both professionals working in competing high-tech companies. When we aren't working, we enjoy spending time with friends and family and, of course, travelling to somewhere warm!

Chris and Nicole purchased this villa in 2010

Why Chris and Nicole chose Bahama Bay

We decided early on that we wanted a home in Florida for our future retirement and to enjoy during our time-off while we were working. We visited over 30 properties in the Orlando area, and while each one had some unique characteristics that we liked, only Bahama Bay hit the mark for us.

Located on over 70 acres of land, the resort is truly that - a resort. The buildings are all offset, so you aren't looking into your neighbour's windows. There are pools and tennis courts and barbecues and walking trails and a fitness centre and a sauna and... well, Bahama Bay just had it all. When you settle in, even though you are about 10 minutes from Disney, you feel a world away.

What makes this villa unique

All of the villas at Bahama Bay are great, but what makes our unit just a bit more unique than the others is LOCATION.

Our villa overlooks the central pond whose fountain is lit at night. Our screened balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy an early breakfast or a late-night book. We are literally a two minute walk along a lighted path to the main Club House with oversized pool, fitness centre, hot tubs and children's splash pad, Two minutes across the parking lot will take you to the resort's barbecue area and children's playground.

We are at the centre of the action, and as our realtor always tells us - LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION.

I hope you will have a chance to share our unique piece of paradise in the midst of the hustle and bustle that is Orlando.

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation to Florida and after staying at this platinum penthouse villa, it will be difficult to fine another to match the amenities, quality, location etc. Much to our delight, all was as described and frankly, exceeded our expectations. Bright, spacious, well appointed, clean, quiet, it was a true delight to stay at Chris's penthouse. This is a Windham Resort and Spa complex, friendly, helpful staff, well managed & maintained. Indeed this Villa deserves our 5 Star rating. We were fortunate to meet with Chris while he and his wife were in Florida which was a bonus for us as he provided a lot of good information. I only hope we have the opportunity to book again next year. Thanks for everything Chris!

Owner's Response: Hi Kirk & Irene,

It was an absolute pleasure to meet you both during your holidays. I know this was your first trip to Orlando and I am very pleased that it exceeded your expectations. We strive to offer the very highest quality to all of our guests, and reading reviews like yours confirms that we are doing just that.

I know you guys spent some fun days at Universal - next time you'll have to check out Disney - and I have lots of information I can share.

I look forward to welcoming you back in the not-to-distant future!

Best place we have ever stayed st

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at a lot of condos, by far this was the best! Very clean, the bedrooms were very large and well stocked with everything you will need. The resort had everything, close to the pools and other amenities were just steps away. Close to Disney, outlets and shopping. Everything was very easy to get too! We have already booked for 2015

Owner's Response: Hi Cathy!

Thank you for leaving this review of our villa.

As you witnessed, Bahama Bay is a very large resort which makes it feel just like that - a true resort. Some of our guests who have stayed at Bahama Bay in the past can't believe the difference a location can make. Many of the villas have nice views, however some back onto parking lots or playing fields, or are located next to dumpsters or high-traffic areas.

Whenever we get a new inquiry, I always encourage the guest to look at the property map and understand where our villa is located as compared to others. Because whether you are staying for a long weekend or a month, the one thing you can't change is location.

Thanks again Cathy - and I have already blocked your stay for 2015. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful condo, there was so much space and all wonderfully maintained. TVs in all rooms great for chilling out and only a short walk to clubhouse and pool. Didn't use clubhouse much but found staff friendly and helpful. Great location close to theme parks but able to get away from it all. We were very busy during the day at the parks and one regret is we didn't get to use this properties and facilities enough. Also Chris very easy to work with. Replied to emails very quickly which is always very reassuring. Can't wait to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: Hi Allison,

Thank you so much for the feedback.

We have received a lot of positive feedback for our location on the property, located just a few minutes walk from the Clubhouse which includes the main pool, tennis court, children's splash pad and fitness centre. The property also recently added a barbecue area which is also just a short walk from our villa.

Thank you again for staying with us and I look forward to welcoming you back again when I hope you will be able to enjoy all of what Bahama Bay has to offer.

Best condo in Bahama Bay... Nice view!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful stay at this condo during our recent trip to Disney.
Chris was great and helped us through the booking process efficiently.
His place was very nice and the best we have stayed in on the resort! And we have stayed in this resort 10 times before this trip.
He has flat screen tvs in every room the whole place has updated furniture and little touches... Like hooks for our keys in by the front door, hooks in the balcony, and a spice rack in the kitchen.
The view is amazing overlooking the pond. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony every morning.
The next best thing is the location. The condo is in the center of the resort so you can walk to the Resturant and club house pool and club house is right in the back.
We loved our stay, our only regret is we didn't find this condo sooner.
Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Ifra,

Thank you for you kind words.

My wife and I take a lot of pride in maintaining our villa to the highest standard to ensure all of our guests have a fantastic stay. I am always pleased to hear reviews like yours that remind us that our efforts are all worthwhile.

We recently added the coat hooks in the entrance and outside on the balcony - great for hanging towels or wet swimsuits after a day at the pool! We also added a set of hooks in the laundry room - again, just for the convenience of our guests. We have tried to implement the sorts of conveniences that we like to see when we travel.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back!

Beautiful Condo in a Great Location

Owner's Response: Hi Jayne,

Thanks for your feedback! It was our pleasure to host you for several weeks.

Many guests appreciate the convenience and security of our location on the property. While some units are isolated at the corners of the property, we are just a couple of minutes along a lighted path to the central clubhouse, pool, fitness center and kiddie splash area. All of this while overlooking the beauty and tranquility of the large pond behind our building.

Thank you again for staying with us and I hope we can welcome you back again soon!
