Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed in many self-catering vacation condos in South Africa and Britain. Crystal Cay Condo rates as one of the best that I have stayed in. The rooms were fairly spacious and well furnished. A high level of cleanliness was maintained. I also really enjoyed the location (5 minute walk to Taino Beach and 5 minute drive to Port Lucaya) and the other amenities such as pool and barbeque facilities. We also had to arrive a few days earlier due to an unforeseen problem with accommodation in Nassau. Caroline went the extra mile to ensure the place was ready for our early arrival. All I can say is thank you Caroline to you and your team for all of your help in providing us with top notch accommodation and a memorable stay."

The condo is exactly as described, well maintained and very clean. Taino beach is 5 mins walk and they let you onto the beach and their restaurant,and bar. The water ferry to Port Lucaya is also right there.Getting food will require more effort if you do not have transport. This was a nice quiet location for a vacation with a pool and easy access to any adventure you want.

Great value, great locals!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 wonderful weeks at Crystal Cay condo. This was our first experience renting abroad and travelling to the Bahamas. Caroline ensured the booking when smoothly and promptly answered all our questions. The property photos were accurate, right down to the terry cloth robes. The property manager was helpful, always friendly, and provided bottled water when needed. We had some great chats. The condo was very clean and we enjoyed the outdoor patio and pool. The master bedroom is very comfortable with ample linen’s. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. We loved the Caribbean Cook Book! And the bar-b-q added variety to our home dining. The area around the condo is quiet and green, which was great for us to re-charge our batteries.

The Bahamas has beautiful beaches and nearby Taino beach (5 minute walk) did not disappoint us. It has beautiful light sand, and stunning, turquoise water (25 C / 77 F). We also accessed the beach via a 15 minute walk to Lonely Planet’s recommended Toni Macaroni’s and Smith’s Point Fish Fry.

The nearby resort restaurant overlooks the water and offers basic menu options. If you eat there you can use the sun chairs or walk along the beach at sunset with a tropical drink in hand.

The scenic water taxi $3 from the resort took us to the Port Lucaya Marketplace. There are several small shops and restaurants we suggest: Sabor’s, Agave's, Cappucino's. The Grand Lucayan Resort restaurants like Willy Broadleaf’s and the Plantation Cafe (Starbucks). Groceries and a liquor store were available via taxi at Solomon’s or Butler’s Food World. Be sure to confirm taxi fares on their in-vehicle price charts.

Under Water Explorer’s Society (UNEXSO) has a great store and patio restaurant overlooking the marina. Don’t miss their dolphin experience! We tried the open ocean swim. The one-on-one with a dolphin was surreal. Also, Paradise Cove’s Reef Balls are very cool! And Reef Tours offers snorkeling trips with lots of marine life.

Most memorable moments:

We lost our new camera and called the taxi company we had used that day. A passenger had turned it in (we couldn’t believe our lucky stars!) and the driver dropped the camera off to us the next morning.

Being adopted by 2 locals who took us on a tour to the island’s west side for THE BEST conch fritters.

Our month at Crystal Cay Condo went exactly as planned. We would highly recommend it to anyone, including our family and friends. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect for Fisherman!

  • 4 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for! We arrived by boat on Friday and check in at customs was VERY easy and quick. It was only a 5 minute ride from the marina where there was fuel/bait/customs to the condo. The dock was a little tricky to get on from the boat; there were no steps so we had to climb up and down it. The condo itself was very charming. It had EVERYTHING we needed! We were greeted by Tyrone and he was more than accommodating. The condo suited our needs perfect. We were out fishing for at least 10 hours a day and would come back and grill our catch. The outdoor seating was nice and it was very quite there. They had a pool, but we never used it. There were 6 adults and the sleeping arrangements were just fine. There was cable and internet that worked great. Caroline was extremely kind and very easy to get a hold of. We exchanged many emails and she answered any questions I had. We didn't do anything other than fish so I don't know what's around the area. I would definitely stay again :)

Fantastic base to explore the island, great family accommodation and quiet too.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from and 18 night stay in Grand Bahama visiting extended family. The condo has provided us with a great 'home' away from home. There is plenty of room and it is well equipped to meet pretty much all of our needs. A huge fridge/freezer and a new washing machine and dryer were so good to have. Having 3 bathrooms was a luxury and there was always plenty of hot water for a shower.The pool provided hours of fun for the boys too.

We visited most of the beaches on the island, the local beach at Taino was lovely.....but you must visit Graveyard beach and Gold rock beach. They are both beautiful and we had them to ourselves. We kayaked through the mangroves and swam with dolphins at Sanctuary Bay. What a magical experience. The Goombay festival was on when we were there and we saw some Junkanoo dancing and ate the local fish dishes, Konch fritters are worth a try. We were lucky enough to head out on a speedboat for the weekend to Grand Cay and go fishing and camp on a deserted island. What an amazing adventure!

There is little by way of shops if you want any retail therapy but we were advised of this before hand so manage your expectations. Port Lucaya is pretty much the only place to shop and is great for souvenirs from the straw markets. There are plenty of jewellery shops to browse and dream!

Eating out is as limited as the shopping. Lots of fast food, fried chicken and fries and burgers.....even in restaurants, burgers are the main item on the menu.

The weather was mixed every day as it was hurricane season but when it rained it soon dried up and didn't often stop you doing what you wanted to do. The humidity is very high and the sun very strong, drink plenty and factor up with the sun lotion.

Over all we had an amazing time and i would recommend this condo to everyone. The location is just right and fairly central. Just 10 minutes from Port Lucaya and 5 minutes from Taino beach and most other places are within a 20 minute drive time. A car is essential as it is too hot to walk anywhere.

Tyrone was there to greet us and kept in touch to check all was ok. He was a font of local knowledge and great fun to chat to. He looked after us really well without intruding on our family time.

Despite some complexity in paying for the condo ( my banks problem, not Caroline's) everything with the booking went smoothly. Caroline kept in regular contact and answered any questions we had really promptly. A fantastic time was had by all.
