Overview

Grand Bahama Island Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms,2full bathrooms, sleeps 4

Dolphin Cove Marina and apartments are ideally situated on one of Freeport's beautiful canals leading to the Turquoise Blue Ocean.

We are just minutes from Shopping, restaurants,local entertainment,

and casino gambling at the islands largest Resort 'The Grand Lucayan'.

The apartment is a unique blend of island architecture with it's brightly colored siding but,inside this unit is new and modern in every way. Designer decorated with all the touches that will make your vacation in Freeport ,Grand Bahama a relaxing memorable experience.

Every Thursday evening from 5:30 to 6:30 pm come and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and light horsd'oeuvres in our brand clubhouse. We do this during our peak season its a great way to meet other guest and get the scoop on what's happening on the island.

Renting a car is suggested to make it easy to get around, although most things are just a five minute drive. Places like the Lucayan National Park is about a 30 minute drive and well worth it. Garden of the Groves a 15 minute drive is a lovely place to have lunch or Friday night dinner.

Smith's Point Fish Fry on Wednesday Night night is a local favorite that's a great place to sample native cuisine.

There are number of local tour operators that offer eco tours by jeep ,kayak,bicycle or boats.

Food prices are high on the island so if you plan on cooking or eating at home bringing your own snacks and condiments will save you some money. But, restaurant dinning is fairly priced.

What we really like about Grand Bahama is the island is large enough to have just about all the conveniences of the city but not over crowded. But, you can travel to the east end of the island and experience the smaller settlements of a small outer island. You can walk for miles on deserted beaches and never see another person terrific!

Another great review for Dolphin Cove, Freeport Grand Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this one bedroom unit for one month this winter and loved it. We have absolutely no regrets. The apartment was well decorated, and sparkling clean and it didn't take us long to feel like it was our home away from home. The property, the grounds, and the pool, were all well maintained. The owners are always looking for ways to improve their beautiful property and satisfy their guests. Don, the property manager was very approachable, and accommodating. (thanks for the blowdryer!)

Getting around the island is made easy because of the taxi services Paddy Wildgoose provides. She is a value added asset to the complex and is so accommodating and always friendly.

The complex is very well located, in that it is only a 30 minute walk to the Lucaya Market, and a 10 minute walk to Coral Beach. I would recommend you bring beach chairs, if possible, otherwise you will have to sit on a towel in the sand.

We really enjoyed the few days we spent at Fortune Beach. The restaurant there is called Banana Bay and the food and drinks are fabulous. The beach was pristine. You can also find lawn chairs, and shade if you wanted to get out of the sun.

The Lucaya market area has lots of great restaurants to chose from. Among our favorites are Cappucinos and Breezes. We found that groceries were expensive.

All in all, we were impressed and so happy with our month that we've booked a two bedroom for next winter!

First Class Accomodations and Great attention to Detail...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 2 and half months and enjoyed every minute of it. Each Apartment has been furnished and finished in high quality fashion. Ken, Sherry and Don have created a haven for the snowbirds with all the amenities to make life easy. They have a Great staff on the grounds as well Special thanks to Walter, Aileen and Mary for making our stay comfortable. This has got to be the cleanest and well run place on Grand Bahama Island! I spent quite a bit of time Bone Fishing and Permit Fishing on Grand Bahama Island. This is as good as it gets in the Bonefishing world..... And yes we are already booked for 3 months next year!

I proposed at Dolphin Cove!

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Cove was the perfect choice for a short Valentine's Day trip to Grand Bahama! We wanted to make our own adventure and explore the island for ourselves. Dolphin Cove was nicely suited as the 'home base' for our visit. The apartment was exactly as described: super clean, quiet, and everything we needed. The location is very convenient and getting around is easy with the help of a map. We ultimately rented a car which is recommended (sidewalks are nonexistent and cab fares can add up quickly). We quickly found the supermarket, the Port Lucaya Market, casino, and plenty of restaurants to choose from. One day we ventured to Paradise Cove for kayaking and snorkeling. Another day we explored the Garden of the Groves. Yet another day we struck out to the east, past the national park and stumbled upon Bishop's Beach Bar on a gorgeous beach in a remote part of the island (a pleasant surprise). Don and the staff at the Dolphin Cove club house were friendly and gracious hosts at a reception on Thursday night. The complimentary glass of wine was appreciated and we stayed for dinner... the fire-oven pizza was terrific and we met some other very nice guests. Overall, Dolphin Cove met our needs, and served as an ideal alternative to a resort stay. If you're a "do it yourself" vacationer or just prefer a quiet spot away from the fray, you'll love Dolphin Cove!

Oh! And she said, "yes"! Dolphin Cove was a perfect choice for us and a lovely backdrop to propose to my beautiful (now) fiancee!

Enjoy!

Our relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We looked at several options for the Bahamas vacation, including hotels and all inclusives. We made our selection by considering several things; comfortable-quiet accommodations, ability to cook when we wanted, proximity to the beach, a nice location and the ability to escape. Dolphin Cove met all of these needs. By our second day, we had totally wound down. With the absence of cell phones, we had no concept of time. The WiFi was our connection to the outside. Although we did not use them, the kayaks and bikes we there. The grocery store, Solomon's was easy to get to by car or bike. You will need a car to get to the best liquor store, Bristol's.

We enjoyed the walks to the beach and walking along the beach into Port Lucaya. Stop in at the beach bar and get a drink for the walk. When you exit the beach at the all inclusive, you'll know why you stayed at Dolphin Cove ( it's noisy and crowded). Port Lucaya has several restaurant options, happy hour at Agave for top shelf margaritas is great. The chips and salsa are wonderful. We treated ourselves to tow dinners at the Flying Fish. Great service and food at a premium.

Taxis are readily available. I recommend finding one you like, getting his/her number and make them exclusive. We did that and had no significant waits for cabs.

Having a washer dryer made it easy to come home with clean clothes.

Ken and Don were very easy and nice to deal with. Don even recommended the best rum for us.

We would certainly stay again, perhaps a little later - March/ April. It would be easy to,stay here a month or more.

Freeport vacation 2015

  • 4 of 5

Great quiet location, close to the beach and nice to be on the canal. Owner and property manager were both very attentive, had a couple of small issues that were dealt with quickly. Only 12 units in this complex therefore were able to meet and socialize with the other occupants. Our unit was very nicely decorated and well equipped. Would stay again. ��

Great apartments in a quieter part of the island.

  • 5 of 5

I was in Freeport for a few months for work, and Dolphin Cove was a great home away from home. The apartments are all clean and fully furnished with everything you need. They're also a lot cheaper than staying at a regular hotel. The beach is a short walk away and the tourist area and grocery store is a short taxi or bike ride. There are bikes and kayaks available for use to get you around. Don and Ken are great people and will answer any questions you have about the island. The cocktail receptions they have in the club house on Thursdays are a lot of fun and a good way to meet new people.
