About Lesley/Alison

Hello, my wife and I have travelled with our children to various islands in the Caribbean, but we felt most at home on Grand Bahama Island. I have a contracting company in Ontario Canada and had been searching for the right property on which to build our vacation home.

Lesley/Alison purchased this house in 2003

Why Lesley/Alison chose Bahamas

The Goodfellow family has vacationed on Grand Bahama for more than 15 years and enjoyed the area and local people so much they built a home on Pelican Point in the late 1990's.

The demands of the construction industry in Canada kept the Goodfellow family in the North a great deal of time and they decided to try share their vacation home by renting it out when not in residence. This proved successful and when they decided to build a larger home, they looked for the best beach they could find on the island of Grand Bahama.

They located a large lot on Golden Beach and in 2003 completed work on this current home near Freetown.

What makes this house unique

From the spacious luxury of the interior to the whisper of the ocean out in front, this feels like our little slice of heaven on earth.

It's a great place for a family get-together or a small wedding and we can recommend photographers, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our stay was, as before, perfectly wonderful. The accommodations are so well-planned for a group, and the weather, and even the airlines, all cooperated beautifully.

Stepping in the front door, even after several stays, is always a delightful surprise---every bit as good as you remember.

The new porch furniture is perfect. It is our hope to be able to return next year."

1st Class Beach House Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This house blow me and my friends away. It is first class all the way. And the ocean views from the rooms are amazing. The beach in your backyard felt like your own private beach because there is no one around. The only down side might be an upside, it is a 30 minute drive to the center of Freeport, to where all the action and people are. If you are looking to get away from the busy then this house will exceed all your expectations.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit, we truly love the restful surroundings and the luxurious home.we all have our privacy with 5 bedrooms each with an ensuite.The distance from the city is just right for privacy and seclusion but near enough for day trips and excursions, such as Garden of the Groves or Lucaya Nat Park.

Pier 1 is our favourite restaurant for the food and nightly shark feedings. We also found the roadside restaurant McLeans Town at the other end of the island excellent for authentic Bahamian dishes.

The views and sunsets from the home are breathtaking .we had good times eating outs is in the screened-in porch watching the sun go down. Also fun to take a meal down to the beach and picnic under the tiki hut or lay in a lounger on the beach with a good book listening to the ocean! PARADISE FOUND!

Favourite Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I visited this home as part of a girlfriend's getaway and we had a fabulous time. The gorgeous home has every comfort, including separate bathrooms. We spent time every single day on the beach without seeing another soul. We walked, swam, sunbathed, picnicked, and it was glorious just to relax and and unwind for an entire week.

There are tons of fun things to do within 30 minutes, the owner has left a helpful guide, so we did a few day trips. Mostly we just relaxed though, completely enjoyable. I recommend this to everyone. I can't wait to go back.

Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We were extremely pleased with the accommodations as there were 10 of us. The ensuites were perfect and we never felt that we were crowded in any capacity. We ate most of our meals there and the kitchen was perfect for that!

The beach was beautiful and our daily walks when the tide was out was always welcomed.
