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 for something 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.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Our stay here was absolutely fantastic. Even though we had the opportunity to see this unit before we rented it and to meet Chris and Nicole, it was even better than what we remembered. Stunning really is a good word to describe this penthouse!! It was so spacious and the location was perfect for us. Close to everything but quieter which was great. We loved the balcony and enjoyed the view while we ate our meals. The pools were wonderful and there were always loungers available. The service was amazing and the staff were very helpful and kind. We will be staying here whenever we go back to Florida. Thanks Chris for your quick communications with us as well. You were the most helpful renter and made our planning so easy.

Owner's Response: Hi Heather! Thank you so much for your review. I am very pleased to hear that you had a great time during your stay. This is especially important to me because you stayed a full month which gave you plenty of time to truly experience not only our villa, but the resort as well. It was a unique pleasure meeting you prior to your rental as well as working with you to ensure you had an enjoyable stay. I look forward to welcoming you back again the next time you visit Florida!

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Florida and our first time staying away from home for a month. This condo exceeded our expectations! Clean, modern and very comfortable it now feels like our second home. The master is huge and the other two bedrooms are quite big as well. The resort is peaceful with four pools and hot tubs which we enjoyed as often as we could. The restaurant on site, The Tradewinds had great service and good food and drinks. There's a great golf course down the road near the Publix and of course Disney! I can hardly wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Claire, Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback. We are always pleased to hear from our longer term guests, as you have been on the property long enough to truly appreciate everything that our villa and resort has to offer. We are very fortunate that our location places us close enough to Disney to be convenient, but far enough away to be able to enjoy some peace and quiet when you aren't visiting the parks. The on-site restaurant, Tradewinds, has really stepped up their game over the past year with a new manager, new menu, and some great daily specials. It was a pleasure hosting you and your guests and we look forward to welcoming you back again!

FIRST CLASS

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and looks great! There are a number of heated pools and hot tubs. The penthouse villa is very spacious with a beautiful master suite and bathroom and another full bath between the other two bedrooms. The enclosed porch is great for unwinding and hanging out after a full day. The villa is very charming and you have no problem getting comfortable quickly. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Hi Rick! Thank you so much for the review. I am very pleased to hear that you and your family had a great stay. Early December is one of my favorite times of the year to visit Disney given the lower crowd levels along with the wonderful Christmas decorations that only Disney can do. I know this was your second stay with us, and I certainly look forward to welcoming you back in the not-to-distant future!

Perfect place for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was in very good condition in an ideal location for the parks and golf courses. It was overlooking the lake and you could see the main swimming pool from the veranda.It was the first time in 12 years of visiting the area we had stayed in an apartment and I would recommend this place to any of my friends

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret, Thank you for your review. I am so pleased that you appreciated our location on the property. Often guests will overlook location when considering where they want to stay, but just like a house, location can make a big difference especially in the enjoyment of your vacation. We are very pleased to be located facing one of the main ponds in the center of the property, just a two minute walk along a lighted path to the main Club House. Thank you again for staying with us and I hope we can welcome you back again soon!

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!
