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.

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!!
Owner's Response: Hello there!!! Thank you soo much for your glowing comments! I am soo glad that Freeport offered a very very warm break from your Canadian snow!! We appreciate the great comments about the Condo. We try to cater to our guests as best we can and offer them the opportunity to have a vacation experience like no other!! You know that you are always welcomed back. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Glad you enjoyed our local Bahamian fish and seafood too (smile)..

Great Vacation Break for Canadians!

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.

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.
Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We know it was a warm getaway from Canada for you.
Thank you for the kind comments and we look forward to hosting you on your next trip to Freeport!

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 wife and I stayed at the Condo for a month. The Manager was very nice and accomodating. They even helped us arrange for a regular taxi cab driver to take us around until I decided to rent a car for the rest of trip. Quiet. Clean. Nice Pool. Enjoyed watching one of the residents feed the fish in the canal every so often. Condo had Wifi which was great for us. Wife enjoyed the stroll to the beach to collect shells. Apartment complex also has a variety of birds in the area. It was relaxing to get away from busy work life. Freeport is similar to a suburb in the US. We enjoyed going into the smaller waterside communities out to the East End too. We would highly recommend this Condo for vacation or long term stay for work.

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

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you soo much! We really enjoyed having another Canadian couple visit our Condo. You can feel free to spread the word about our vacation condo to all your friends and family back home. We are so glad that the Condo provided the comforts and amenities that made your stay relaxing. 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!

Wonderful place to stay!! Home away from home!

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks at this amazing condo! First, Kimberley made us feel so at home when she met us to give us the keys and info about the Island! The condo was furnished above and beyond what was stated! They have done EVERYTHING to make one feel at home -- down to having flashlights, First Aid Kits and those "little things" that you may have forgotten to bring!
The condo is really located in a terrific location for anyone visiting the Island! We rented a car -- really the best idea!! It gives you the freedom to go and do what you want to -- when you want to!
The 1st day we headed off toward West End and went snorkeling at Pirate's Cove. The folks there are really nice! The reef area has some great fish and coral! After we spent some time there--we drove on to the very end of the West End!
The next day -- we went to the East End! Have to say-- our favorite area!! The beach down at the East End was BEAUTIFUL and most days-- we were just about the only ones there!!
Be sure and stop at Ali Oops--- a small bar on the right side of the road on your way out to the East End... Especially on Friday, Saturday and Sundays when they have an awesome little band (GOB--Good Ole Boys) who really made our trip memorable! We had never seen anyone play a saw with a screwdriver before-- and boy, can George play it!! Ali and her sister, Sue, along with their brother Bryce and nephew make you feel like part of the family immediately! And be sure to have something off the grill!! It's to die for!!
We enjoyed the shops at the International Bazaar. It was amazing watching the ladies make the bags! And there's a lil bar-- Jasmin's Place---where Jasmin made us feel right at home and told us lots of history about the Island!
Lucaya Marketplace was interesting as well... There are some amazing restaurants! Cafe Breeze was WONDERFUL!!! Agave and Zorba's were others we enjoyed too! The live music on Thursday night was really fun!
The Fish Fry at Outrigger's at Smith Point on Wednesday nights is a MUST as well!! We had never experienced the fish fried whole!
Everyone on the Island treated us like family and made us feel so welcome and at home! Our stay at the condo was terrific--I even went snorkeling in the canal right out from the porch!! There were lots of great fish right there!
In case you can't tell-- we really loved it there! My hubby is already making plans for our return trip!
Owner's Response: You two were truly wonderful guests! And you were so adventurous too! You really got to see some of the local ‘treasures’ on the island. The “Rake & Scrape” music you heard from the Good Ole Boys is actually traditional Bahamian music, that we are so glad you were able to experience. We love that you were pleased with the Condo and had such an enjoyable vacation. Wow; the canal by the Condo even provided an extra place for you to snorkel too! We definitely will keep in touch and we look forward to you & the hubby returning very soon.
