Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long vacation in Grand Bahama. We were able to get a good package deal via West Jet and the stay at Island Breeze just made the trip really worthwhile. Quiet days. We went to the beaches and read. We even walked to the nearby grocery store (but got a taxi-cab back with our bags). After a few days in the Bahamas, you really do start to move a bit slower and more relaxed. The locals call it 'Bahamian Time'. We would highly recommend for another visit. Good value.

More than expected or even imagined.

Beautiful beaches, wildlife, food, and adventure aside, King's Bay and more specifically, Kim, made our stay well worth the time, expense, and hassle that went in to planning the perfect vacation. We loved the care free accommodations, along with the carefree atmosphere it provided. Can't wait to get back again soon.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Best vacation ever and I can't wait to go back!! We wanted to try something with more peace and quiet and independence than a resort and that is exactly what we got. The condo was clean and comfortable and had everything we could have needed. Kimberley was great and we always knew she was only a phone call away for any advice we needed. Every morning we took a walk along the canal out back to watch the tropical fish and Rays swim. We had the pool to ourselves the whole time....and usualy the gorgeous beach as well. Several nights we barbecued fish on the deck that we had caught that day. There were also lots of bars and restaurants at Port Lucya which was a short drive away. We took a trip to the Lucya National park which was well worth seeing. All in all this vacation was just what we were looking for and we can`t wait to go back!! Thanks for everything Kimberley!!

Relaxing in Paradise!

  • 4 of 5
I had a wonderful time relaxing in this condo for 25 days! It was a short walk to Xanadu beach, which for the most part you'll have to yourself. Every morning I went for a nice walk or bike ride and enjoyed the amazing weather and friendly folks. The condo was comfortable, clean and well-equipped. I really enjoyed sitting on the patio along the canal watching the fish jump! I had the pool to myself as well. If you plan to stay for a while, you'll need to rent a car as the condo is a bit far from shops and other entertainment. Kimberley was such a wonderful hostess; so welcoming and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Fabulous!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kimberly is an awesome hostess and made us feel so welcomed. She really is a great ambassador for her country! The condo was comfy, cozy and relaxing. Planning our activities was a breeze since Kimberly had already done the homework and provided a binder with great ideas, contacts and suggestions. We were 'wowed'. Loved it and will be back again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We try to be helpful by providing guests with suggestions of places to go & things to do, that are somewhat "off the beaten path", and not just the "touristy" places everyone typically visits. We find that most of our guests are like you & your husband; wanting a vacation experience with a real taste of the Island. We hope to see you again next year! Thank you so much!

My family and I had a great time at Islandbay! It's a quick walk to the beach, right on the canal, and we had the pool to ourselves almost every day we were there. The condo was clean, and everything we needed was there and then some. There's a great little restaurant/bar called Sires with the BEST fish fingers I've ever had just down the road. I would most definitely rent this condo again, and wouldn't even mind buying my own in this area. Thanks!

Wonderful Week's Stay

Wonderful Week's Stay
  • 4 of 5
My husband and I returned from a very relaxing and wonderful week's stay at Island Bay condominium. Kimberley, the manager was very welcoming and helpful in answering all my questions. She truly was a wonderful hostess.
The condominium is bright, spacious and spotless. There is a great breakfast bar, the kitchen has all the amenities (coffee pot, microwave, blender, toaster, full size fridge and stove, and dishes, glasses, pots, pans, utensils etc.) The bedroom boasts a great double size bed with a really comfortable mattress; lots of closet and drawer space. There is a nice size bathroom - very clean and lots of counter space for your toiletries. Plush beach and bathroom towels were provided along with extra sheet sets, blankets and pillows. We had the use of the computer and printer; telephone was provided with local calling capability.
The living room had patio doors that looked out onto the canal. In the mornings we would sit outside on the deck and look out onto the beautiful view of the canal
while having our coffee. Truly a little bit of heaven. And in the evenings we would prepare dinner on the new BBQ that Kimberley ensured was there for our arrival - now that's service.
The condominium is on the ground floor but we rarely heard any noise from above and the evenings were very peaceful and quiet.
As stated in the listing, the condominium is not on the beach - but a 20 minute walk will get you to a really nice beach - Xanadu. As well, Kimberly had prepared a "welcome binder" with great information about the area ie. beaches, local attractions (International Bazaar, Lucayan Marketplace); restaurants; grocery stores nearby (Butler's - ten minute drive). She also provided maps, pamphlets etc.
It's a good idea to rent a car to really experience all that Freeport has to offer (Brad's Car rental is very reasonable). We did and had a great time exploring Freeport and all it's nooks and crannies.
And at the end of the day; after swimming and sunbathing, sightseeing, fishing and sailing etc; it was so nice to know we were coming home to such a wonderful, relaxing place - Island Bay condominium. Truly amazing value for the quality of the unit. We would definitely return here again.

We look forward to you returning again soon! PS: Thank you for the gift of the fishing rod. I am certain that other guests will appreciate being able to use it as well. Happy Holidays!
