The Hideawaybahamas Beach Cottage has been updated with new windows, patio doors etc. and full air conditioning to make your stay just perfect. The Cottage is just feet from the quiet secluded beach and safe swimming, excellent snorkeling and mostly crystal clear water. Bone and fly fishing straight from our beach. The cottage is situated in the s.w. corner of Hideawaybahamas Beach Club, very quiet and private and one of the older original Bahamian cottages and Ideal for those that are seeking a quiet or romantic vacation, or just want to get away from all the stress of life. Very popular with Honeymooners and families. Just lay back relax, and take in the aquatic panoramic view over the two reefs which offer great scuba diving and snorkeling. Also see the 3 blue holes (underwater caves). Laze in the warm azure seas, then as evening falls sip a cocktail while watching stunning sunsets. As evening falls this is also a star gazers paradise, never seen so many.
Walk the beach in either direction for miles and collect those shells and other objects that catch your eye. You may not even see a human on these walks just the quiet sway of the trees, the sound of the ocean, birds and fish swimming along in the shallow waters.
Take your line and fish from the beach, then grill up your catch and dine under the stars. Watch the sunsets which are often quite stunning. If you want the nightlife of Port Lucaya it is only a 25 minutes drive away with many resturants, pubs, and most evenings music in Count Basie Square, a great evening out, also the Casino and several International Restaurants in the Our Lucaya complex. Freeport boasts several championship golf courses and duty free shopping. We have a live in Manager who is happy to assist and the property is fenced and secure. WiFi and Satellite TV is in the cottage. We have a heated pool with swim up bar and grill.

About Liz Black
We fell in love with this gorgeous five acres of beachfront property with the original cottage of all beautiful pine. With a hectic and stressful business life we really was looking for our own Paradise and we found traveled the world and really have found no-where better and have ease of access to the island.
Liz Black purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Liz Black chose East Grand Bahama
We bought it and restored putting windows and tiling the floors etc. It really was a Hideaway where we could escape from business, fly over in our plane and just relax and have the time of our lives enjoying miles of private beach, swimming and snorkeling with our dog. Nobody around just us and the birds and fish. If you like stars then you will not find anywhere else that there are so many. It is Paradise. Come and see for yourself.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close to Florida for shopping etc. Miami International airport gets you anywhere in the world. No taxes, no inheritance tax and no death duties. Grand Bahama has everything that you would want. We have supermarkets, hospitals, golf courses, theatres, cinemas and much more all on a very low keel. Large Island with not a lot of people but many ex pats that all enjoy this wonderful lifestyle.

I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at the beachfront cottage last month. We're back home where there is a foot of snow on the ground, and I'm really wishing we'd been able to extend our stay at the Hideaway for at least another week.The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and beyond our expectations. Every morning when we awoke, we had to pinch ourselves - it was like being on the set of South Pacific! Yes, storms have left their mark on Grand Bahama, but the charm, easy pace and incredibly helpful and kind locals more than made up for any lack. We appreciated all the restaurant and beach tips from Liz and John, and Ezra and James provided anything else we needed - extra bedding, barbecue assistance and fine company. Next year? At least another week!
On behalf of John, James, Ezra and myself, we miss you. Your trip was too short, we just got to know you and you us. You started finding your way around and favorite places and more friendly faces and had to return to the snow. You have choices and we intend to entice you back for longer next time with the three weeks and pay 2 and a half or 4 weeks and pay for three. You do not need to be shoveling snow. We have added to our Hideawaybahamas Beach Club team the boat with captain / guide and now that special treat. James is a good cook as we well know and has been seen cooking his special snapper dish for us and guests. We intend to offer a local cook to come in prepare, cook and serve. Also by popular demand. Dine with a Bahamian family. They do all the work at your villa, you sit back and enjoy and we all speak English. Bonne appetite.
Delightful week stay!
After a long, long overnite flight, it was wonderful to arrive at this cottage!
Perfect for two couples with 2 bedrooms and spectacular private beach. We walked the beach multiple times a day. Snorkeled the blue holes, kayaked, swam, read and relaxed.
James and Ezra were perfect caretakers, James stopped by each day to see if we needed anything, his dog Oscar was fun to have around.
The cottage is 1/2 hour from a grocery store, so be sure to stock up at Solomon's on your way! The only thing I would recommend is to be sure to bring some bug spray, those little no-seeums were really hungry! One of our best nights was watching the Super Bowl at the Chill and Grill just up the road....Jasmine and Marco are terrific hosts!
Wonderful little treasure!!!
Well... I do not even know where to start. When we arrived it was very late and we were met and greeted by our Caretaker James and Oscar (his sweet dog). He was wonderful, showed us around and checked on us every evening. The cottage was a peaceful and wonderful place. It was clean, and perfect for our family. It is steps from the beach, Literally!!! We had so much wonderful and relaxing time, that it truly spoiled us. We went swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and just relaxing on that beautiful beach that went on for miles. We only saw 2 people the entire time there on the beach. A day or so into our visit we met John Liz and Sharly ( their dog), and must I say they were wonderful, made us feel right at home and like part of their Bahama family. It was nice getting to meet them and get to know them. We truly hated to leave. We loved it so very much there, that we came back in December as well for a little longer. Again at that visit we were greeted by everyone!!! and we felt right at home. They are all so wonderful and they work hard to just make everything perfect for their guests, ( who feel like family). I can not say enough about our time there, we have also stayed at the Plumbago Villa and it is wonderful too. If you are looking for true relaxation, and some peace and quiet and great family time, then this is the place for you. When you wake up every morning and look outside that picture window, you just see amazing turquoise waters, it was truly breathtaking. We are from the gulfcoast, so we beach it often, but it does not compare to the pristine white beach and beautiful waters right outside your home. ( We loved it there, and made so many wonderful memories with our daughter, and I am so thankful for that little piece of paradise that you share with the rest of us for wonderful times like this ) John, Liz, and James we will see you soon. Thank you for everything.
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away from the crazy resort areas, this is for you!
The house has everything, perfect for 2 couples with 2 bedrooms each with it's own bathroom at opposite ends of the house. The beach goes on forever and is just steps from the cottage.
There is a caretaker nearby who will help you with anything you may need.
Be sure to get groceries before you arrive because you will not want to leave.
You can snorkel on the reef or paddle around on the kayaks that come with the house.
What a wonderful vacation we had!!!!
Thank you so much Nancy, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us, and you left the place so lovely and clean. We do hope that you will visit us again very shortly and enjoy the lovely beach cottage once again. Liz and Team.
RATS in Beds and Kitchen!!! Highly Overpriced and Unprofessional treatment!
First let me point out:
1. we stayed in plenty of other cottages in subtropical countries before and did not expect luxury
2. every rental consist of 3 major “commodities” sold to tourists: location, comfort and service. This time the last two failed completely.
3. we own and rent 3 apartments in mountains via other booking web with average mark 9.3 out of 10 from our clients.
4. we booked and partially paid the Hideaway cottage for Christmas 7 months in advance and were not informed about the damages made by hurricane 2 months prior to arrival. We would cancel our stay and book other place.
5. speaking with staff we learnt no clients were staying in the cottage over last 6 months
Now back to Hideaway cottage and its facts:
+ Nice beach starts in front of what (before hurricane in 10/16) used to be a small garden and green wall. + Welcome bottle of wine in the fridge. + Two kayaks at your disposal.
- No garden left on front, only sand mixed with wood, broken glass, plastic, concrete, … The advertisement pictures should be changed to avoid bad surprised. Or at least the mess around should be cleaned up.
- Cottage is nearly 50 years old, but would be acceptable if properly cleaned. Windows changed only 5 years ago but mosquito screens already come apart.
- Rats living in the cottage walls and roof visit the kitchen nearly every night. You can hear them well or (like us) find one in your bed at night! This has changed our sleep following nights to a nightmare.
- Kitchen stove is without grounding whilst pots are with metal handlers = you get hit by electricity few times a day if you intend to cook.
- No internet at all after 6 PM and pretty unstable during daylight.
- Service – should you dare to criticize anything or ask cottage related questions, you get ignored by Liz or even emailed: “Neither James nor myself appreciate being spoken to by you so rudely. We will stay away from the cottage till you leave.“
- regarding rats - once we informed them about, were told they might put some chemicals around the house but would put also their 3 dogs in danger so they did totally nothing ...
- on departure date we wanted to talk to the owner who lives abroad, but were not given any contact details with explanation "we do not think he would like to talk to you"...
VERY RUDE OBNOXIOUS PEOPLE, ARRIVED A DAY LATE DUE TO DELAYED LONDON FLIGHT. DEMANDED MONEY BACK OR THEY WILL WRITE A BAD REVUE AND SAY RAT WAS THERE ETC. THERE IS NO BUILDING WORK WITHIN 10 MILES AND THE BEACH COTTAGE HAS NEW WINDOWS AND NEW SLIDING DOORS AND SCREENS, NEW KITCHEN APPLIANCES UTENSILS ETC AS PART OF THE OWNERS UPGRADE. MANAGER LIZ UNABLE TO OBTAIN OWNERS AGREEMENT TO REFUND AT SHORT NOTICE. THIS IS THE RESULT. TOTAL FABRICATION. THEY INTERFERED WITH WI FI SO OUR OTHER GUESTS HAD NONE. OTHER PROPERTY OWNERS SHOULD AVOID THESE PEOPLE. SAD, HOMEAWAY YOU PRINTED THIS FALSE REVIEW. DESPITE OUR EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, WE SUBMITTED TO HOMEAWAY TWICE. DID NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THE FIRST REPORT AND HAVE YET TO INVESTIGATE THE REPORT, YET THEY PRINT THIS NONSENSE ANYWAY. SHAME ON HOMEAWAY. REMEMBER BOOK DIRECT AND SAVE IS THE WAY TO GO AND AVOID BOOKING FEES..
An amazing place to visit PARADISE
Homeaway. Hideaway Beach Cottage # 213224
I have just returned from staying at the Beach cottage with our friends.
Just perfect for us all. I liked the bedrooms with private bathrooms being at either end of the cottage and private. The very large great room, with kitchen and dining area and lounge and TV area was perfect. The utensils etc were plentiful and In good condition. Moving to the outside, it's very private and we found the sands so close and the water is so warm, clear and just perfect for swimming. There were the kayaks that we used so many times in between snorkeling. We've never enjoyed so much time in the water. The lads fished from the beach and we had great barbecue nights with a mixture of fish etc. never had such a great vacation.
We remember Sam and friends, so pleased to hear from you and glad you enjoyed the beach cottage and yes we do offer a return visitors bonus, so if you,ve been before to any of our properties then you,ll get that extra bonus offered at the time of booking. The people that followed Sam were returning bone fishermen. These guys now know all the fishing spots and go bonefishing using a fly right froom the beach.
We are a short 30 minute drive on good straight roads east of the International airport, and just before High Rock. A private 5 acres of beachfront at Bassett Cove, very quiet and secluded. Ideal for swimming, snorkeling, fishing just relaxing and doing just what you want to, a retreat for those wishing to get away from it all. A 30 minute drive gets you to Freeport with golf, scuba, tennis, shopping, casinos etc. At the village of High Rock there are a couple of great local beach bars that serve good local fare at very reasonable prices.
