SPECTACULAR WATER FRONT APT. ENJOY THE VERY BEST OF FREEPORT

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!

AMAZING SUITE - 2 WEEKS OF BLISS

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at this apartment. It was one of the best accomodations we have stayed in on our holidays. And priced just about right too. We were slightly disappointed that the club house wasnt actually open as it would have been nice to pop in for drinks in the evenings before heading into Port Lucaya. We understand that it should be sorted and opened in the near future. It did look nice though.
The kayaks were a nice touch and fun to use. Would be nicer if they were 2 man kayaks but we still enjoyed using them.
Really enjoyed our stay on the island of Grand Bahama and in particular at Dolphin Cove Apartments. I would highly recommend Dolphin Cove. You will definately need to hire a vehicle to get around.
Many thanks Don for having us and we hope to return again sometime in the future.
Ray and Teresa.

VERY RELAXING, QUIET AND NICE PLACE.

  • 4 of 5
Really nice apartment and club house. It was nice having the boat behind the apartments but was a chore to tie up every time we came back from boating or fishing. Ken the owner is working on that part of the property so hopefully next year he will have the docks completed.
Looking forward to staying here again.

IT'S EVEN BETTER IN THE BAHAMAS IF YOU ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO STAY HERE!!! WAY BETTER!!

It's even better in the Bahamas if you are fortunate enough to stay here!!! Way better!!
  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely fantastic!! The apartment was immaculate, decorated beautifully with first-class furnishings, and the owners responsiveness to any requests or local recommendations was always promptly provided. Not having to deal with a hotel and paying all their extra hidden fees in the end was a nice bonus. Having a stunning kitchen with a view to cook meals in was a major bonus, too. I was able to get fresh seafood and prepare it nightly. I was even supplied with fishing poles, a kayak, and bicycles! Does it get much better than that anywhere else on the island? I think not!! I've been to the island several times and each time have stayed at a different locale. My next visit will not be at any place but this one. This one is a gem!! The location was a very short drive to the main hub of Port Lucaya, where all the major hotels, restaurants, and shopping are. Coming by boat is welcomed as there are boat slips right in front of the building. Having a car is helpful, but not necessary. You will see many visitors and locals walking everywhere. There is a Clubhouse onsite as well, so private parties or events can be easily arranged with the necessary staff to make it a memorable time. You will have to see the Clubhouse personally, as there is no way to describe it other than luxurious, inviting and truly relaxing. It's ideal for sharing a glass of wine with company, while awaiting freshly prepared appetizers from an attentive staff, listening to soft jazz and enjoying the nice breeze over the water. Overall, my stay at Dolphin Cove Bahamas was exceptional, and this was due to the beautiful accommodations, hospitality, and obvious commitment of the dedicated owners to spare no details on your behalf. Thank You! I'll be back with friends, for sure!!

OUTSTANDING PLACE IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and me have spent 6 days over Christmas at Dolphins Cove. Don't know where to start first because it was amazing! Ken and Sherry are extraordinary friendly and pleasant hosts who do everything that you feel maximum comfortable and help wherever they can. We arrived during their absence but everything was perfectly organized to get to appartment. The appartment itself is a cosy but superb equiped place (huge and modern kitchen, washing machine, dryer, TV set with hundreds of channels, high-speed WIFI). The furniture is very nice, modern, comfortable and every single peace is of a very high quality standard. That's Swiss like! I think it's self explanatory that it is super-clean and very spacious. Ken and Sherry are currently finishing a lounge / restaurant next the appartments and we have been able to get a glimpse: I'm sure that this will become one of the most homey places in Freeport for enjoying exquisite wines, drinks and food and just relaxing in an outstanding atmosphere, feeling like visiting good friends.
Overall, it felt a litlle bit like arrving at home each time we came back every day entering our appartment. So we can fully recommend this accommodation and will/would go there again.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY FOR A VACATION IN FREEPORT

  • 5 of 5
We are 2 couples that enjoyed our vacation in Freeport for 4 days. We had really great time. The Dolphin Cove property is amazing, the appartment where we stayed was well equiped with everything neccessary, clean and modern. It's only 10 min of walking from the beach. Lucaya center is also reachable by walking (about 20-25 min) or you can order a cab to go there.

The view over a canal is amazing, appartment has a big balcony where we had a dinner to enjoy it.

A property owner, Ken, was very friendly to us and showed how to cook a lobster, provided us with fishing rods and kayaks. By the way, you can fish just 10 meters away from the building, we caught a good snapper and cooked it immediately for a dinner.

I would recommend this place for everybody who wants to have a great time on Bahamas.

Owner's Response: He guys,
Glad you had a great time. It was fun showing you how to cook the lobster.
I didnt know you caught a snapper as well. From the fishing pole to the skillet it doesnt get any better than that.
Safe travels and see you in the Bahamas again.

SAVED OUR HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
We were using my parents time share to exchange to Island Seas Resort, but when we got there we were utterly disgusted with it. We found Ken on VRBO and he was very prompt in coming to the resque. We immediately checked out of Island Seas after one night with a full refund from our timeshare and into Dolphin Cove Aparments and never looked back.

Ken Saved our honeymoon. We were overly pleased with the cleanliness and quality of the apartment and grounds. It is very comforable and cozy. Ken was very friendly and helped us find places to visit around the Island. The location is great. Central to everything and just down the road from Port Lucaya, which we visited frequently for the restaurants. We loved using the kitchen with great appliances and found everything we needed. The WiFi and TVs were awesome to come home to. Although you have to use some tricks to be able to watch Netflix and Amazon Instant videos while in the Bahamas.

Ken has a great vision for this place and we would recomend the apartments to anyone. It will only get better as he continues to work on the grounds. Thanks for saving our honeymoon Ken!
