Overview

Bahamas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed / 2 bath sleeps 5 in Bevans Town.

GREAT DISCOUNTS FOR SECOND, THIRD AND FOURTH WEEK OR ONLY TWO GUESTS USING ONE BEDROOM.. The Hideaway Beach Cottage has just 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 Hideaway Bahamas 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 Restuarants 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. Also WiFi and Satellite TV is in the cottage.

About Liz

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 it..

Liz purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Liz chose Bahamas

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.

Most relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the size of the "cottage" to the hospitality shown by the owners, it was the most relaxing vacation I've taken in years. The home was large, warm and inviting (especially the bottle of wine left for us upon arrival!) and the beach was literally steps away from the back yard. The sound of the surf just yards away assure a restful sleep and a peaceful calm to those fortunate enough to stay here. Liz and John were there to make sure our stay was comfortable, and to see that we had whatever it was we needed or wanted. You couldn't ask for more when looking for a quiet, secluded place to recharge your batteries. We will return...........

Owner's Response: Its always a pleasure to welcome our guests and answer their questions personally whenever possible. Not only did these clients make friends with us, but they also got on so well with the locals who found them fresh fish and guided them to other attractions, local restaurants and bars.

Best Vacation We've Ever Had

  • 5 of 5

Daniel and his property are exactly as pictured. Our trip to the Bahamas was cancelled last minute and Daniel accommodated us the day before and saved the day. His property is the closest to the beach, a minute walk to the water. This beach is GORGEOUS! His property is GORGEOUS! People would take notice as they walked by because their decor outside makes you stop and admire.

This experience with Daniel will have us coming ONLY to him every time we travel to the area which will be our yearly vacation.

TIPS

- Shop before, get what you think you need. House will have the essentials to get you started but you'll want to shop as if you're coming to an empty house.

- Property has floats, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, shelling tools so save you cash on those

- Pack light - theres laundry on site, I brought more clothes than needed considering I was on the beach all day!

- GO to the beach for the Sunset! Explore Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach, South Lido Beach, Siesta Beach

An amazing place to visit PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Hideaway in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have recently returned from Grand Bahama, and the perfect location that is Hideaway Beach Club. Right from the start, the owners were very welcoming and provided us with everything we needed. I was a little worried if they could cater for my disabled wife, but the whole complex had great wheelchair access.

The weather was delightful and the warm waters were very inviting. I particularly enjoyed the snorkeling with lots to see among'st the reefs and water holes. My wife was able to tag along with me aboard a kayak that was supplied for us. Lots of other activities to do and when we got tired we could just lay back and enjoy the sun.

The locals were also very friendly and the town of Freeport was very special. Live entertainment in the square at night and lots of lovely bars and restaurants. The food was amazing and a large selection to choose from. The town could get very busy when the cruise ships arrived, which made Hideaway so special. It is a 30 minute drive from Freeport where it is remote but far from isolated. Meaning you could escape back to your very own, quiet piece of paradise.

All in all, a very nice location that I have recommended to my friends and family.

I am even contemplating buying one of their new apartments which are near completion.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Hideaway in April and had a wonderful time. We have two small children and were concerned about finding a vacation spot that both my husband and I could enjoy as well as our children. We found that spot with Hideaway. We spent the week on the beach enjoying it all to our selves, the kids played and swam in the water while we relaxed on the beach! The locals were very friendly and recommened spots nearby for dinner on those rare nights that we ventured out--we really did not need to leave as everything we needed was provided. I would recommend Hideaway to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation away from the hustle and bustle. Look forward to going back.

A little disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The beaches are fabulous...the sun warm and inviting...the people of the Bahamas very friendly.

This particular house was a little disappointing...although it was roomy...it is quite run down, old, and mouldy. The ad looks ike it was done quite few years ago...and was a little misleading. The other house on the property looked lovely. If we had known, we may have booked the 'better' house instead.

We felt very safe in the Bahamas and found lots of new friends, pubs, and places to eat that were delightful.

Owner's Response: The review acknowledges our FABULOUS beach and yes the Beach cottage was built in the 70’s. Yes it is an authentic Bahamian cottage. Yes it is right on the beach and therefore is well accepted by guests loving the fresh pure and healthy Atlantic breezes. The photos were taken July 2011. The gardener tells me these folk turned evil after their friends left. He avoided them! There is no mold, professionally checked and bug treated monthly to be safe. It was water stain on the base board caused by youngsters putting towels in the sinks with the taps on back in 2011! It all was cleaned and varnished many times. Just cannot get rid of the water mark. Yes the cottage is very close to the beach and the sea air carries a little sand at time so Yes do rinse out the coffee percolator or the utensil’s often All pots and pans are new and designer series. Renter this week are ecstatic, with their 2 year old enjoying the safe surroundings. To wake up to the sound of the sea rippling on the beach. Incredible and then walk the deserted beach to dry off after a swim. For AC lovers. You cannot totally shut this cottage up. The large great room has no ACV and relies on the cooling Atlantic breezes. Both Bedrooms are en suite and separately located at either side of the great room end with private access. The old style AC is not accommodation for whole house AC. For AC lovers we offer the new Hideaway villa. Cost efficient with granite tops and leather sofas and again as the review acknowledges the folk and villages around the cottage are the best. See you at the Hideaway Beach cottage or Hideaway villa soon.
