Our family's two bedroom ocean/beach front apartment at Coral Beach near Lucaya on Grand Bahama Island directly overlooks the ocean. Tucked in a quiet oceanfront corner on the 3rd floor, it's much brighter than the standard interior units at Coral Beach and has 2 full bedrooms with newly renovated bathroom-- it's like scoring that hotel room double upgrade at no extra charge!
Offering great cross breezes (we are an end unit and very private), the sunny living room looks out to the ocean. The apartment is furnished with a queen bed and dresser in each bedroom, living room with sofa and 2 chairs, dining room table and chairs, a flat panel HDTV and stereo, ceiling fans in living room and bedrooms, breakfast bar, and a balcony off the living room. Outside on the balcony (or from the living room), you can sit and enjoy the ocean view.
The master bedroom looks out towards tropical gardens, has a queen size bed and glass sliders for cool night breezes.
The apartment has a full bathroom with shower, plus a second dressing room area with a sink and large closet - all renovated in November 2015.
The open kitchen is fully equipped and remodeled with newer appliances featuring a breakfast bar and stools. It opens to the living area. The dining area of the living room seats six.
Our condo overlooks the beach and breathtaking ocean and is just steps away from the oceanfront pool and bar and grill restaurant (bar closed after Hurricane Matthew - inquire about current status).
Swim in the clear blue waters, or snorkel at the offshore reef. Or just relax and laze away on the white sand beach under one of the shady tiki huts or palm trees on our beach.
If you want to take advantage of all that Grand Bahama Island has to offer, just let us know what activities and adventures you are seeking and we can point you in the right direction for a great vacation.
The Coral Beach condo was built in the 1970s, so although our apartment has been completely renovated between 2006 and 2015, don't expect the building lobbies to look like a new Ritz-Carlton. But Coral Beach is a well-maintained treasure on a great beach at a very reasonable price.
Our family really enjoys our 'home away from home' at Coral Beach and we think you will too!

Our family bought the condo in 2006. It had the original pink shag carpeting and bad pink wallpaper. Don't worry -- we have renovated and redecorated it (including most recently the bathroom area which was totally renovated in the fall of 2015), and the pink is gone. Life is too short not to enjoy it as we go along! We want you to enjoy Coral Beach as much as we do!
Mark Bobotek purchased this condo in 2006
We first fell in love with the great beach, but very quickly we have made many wonderful friends at Coral Beach, both Bahamians and other condo owners and guests.
We love our condo, but there is so much to do outdoors that we don't spend much time in it! Personally, I also enjoy waking up to the sound of the waves most mornings, walking the beach, and riding my cruiser bike around the island.
We've been coming to Coral Beach for the last six years, renting different units each time. Hands-down, this is our favorite by unit by far, and we will definitely be back. I would give it five stars, but we had spotty internet and cable all week and the elevator was out, but that is just island life, and I certainly don't go on vacation for the cable and internet! Besides, there are plenty of movies, books and games to choose from if you need anything besides the sound of the ocean and the amazing sunrises.
The unit is clean and nicely furnished, and the beds are comfortable -- which is a rare occurrence in my experience at Coral Beach. There is a tremendous cross breeze and ceiling fans, so we never needed to run the AC. The appliances may not be new, but they are all quite functional; the shower was great and there are plenty of nice quality beach towels, another rare occurrence in my experience.
They are still working on repairs to the building from the October 2016 hurricane, but nothing that interfered with anything for our stay -- mostly cosmetic, but with that perfect turquoise ocean and white sand, who cares.
Besides, you don't go to Coral Beach if you want luxury. If that is your scene -- go to a resort. If you want a laid back place with a pool, bar and a stunning beach and super nice people, then CB is for you. It's what brings us back year after year -- simple, relaxing and calm. Nothing but a peaceful, easy feeling, as The Eagles would say.
Thanks for the great stay, Mark. We will be back for sure!
My vacation was cancelled because of Hurricaine Mathew, but the owner promptly refunded my money.
We loved our stay at Coral Beach Hotel! We have a 4yo and a 7yo and the condo was great for us. We would have preferred two bathrooms, but it was easy to make it work with just the 1 and we did have 2 sinks which was a nice bonus. We had all the kitchen items we needed and the closet is full of bags, snorkel gear, hats and other fun items for use. The beach towels were nice and large. We enjoyed going to sleep with the breezes and sounds of the ocean just out our window and the views were wonderful! We did the kayak trip thru the mangroves and the paradise cove snorkel trip and the Wednesday evening fish fry. We loved it all. Mark, the owner was very helpful with the information and recommendations. He even called once just to check in with us. The other residents of the condo building were very welcoming as well. Thanks for having us!
The Coral Beach has lovely grounds and is nicely situated on a gorgeous beach with small palm trees and little hut covers to provide shade if desired. Pool, shuffleboard and lawn bowling available on the well-maintained property. Beach walks are incredible. And there is a convenient poolside restaurant for decent lunches or dinners at a reasonable price --- great burgers. The building is showing its age, but is kept very clean and tidy. The owner of this unit is available by phone and very helpful (free phone service in the unit to US and Canada; free island phone service in the lobby). The unit itself is a bit smaller than we expected; fine for 2 or 3, but would probably be crowded for 4. The LR has 2 comfortable chairs and a loveseat for 2, but no couch. The second bedroom is rather small and has no window. Kitchen is well equipped; even has a neat Panini maker; DR table seats 6. Large sliding window in LR/DR looks out to the ocean, though over a large parking lot. There is a deck on the side of the unit with partial view of the ocean. You can hear the surf as you relax. Excellent flatscreen TV's in LR and BR with good cable coverage; WiFi is pretty good with intermittent outages. The kitchen pantry needed some cleaning and organizing.
We spent 2 weeks at this wonderful place in Coral Beach with our 2 sons (3 months and 3 years) and we had a blast! The condo has 1 feature that says it all : an amazong view of the ocean, right from the living room/balcony visible from 2 big slidding doors. Steps from the beach (and nice huts, very useful with kids!), great pool, and Nice beach bar onsite! The condo is super well equiped (plenty of beach towels, cooking tools, etc) Only downside may be the bathroom (a bit old and not really appealing but it didnt matter at all!) The owner is VERY helpful, fast to respond and called the day we arived to check if evrythig was alright! Short bus ride from grocery store, and a nice walk to Lucaya with bars, shops, restaurants. Definetely a great stay!
Would recommend it strongly!!!!
Because of the balcony and two large sliding door windows with sounds of waves on beach, the rating is good. Otherwise there were issues: we paid for a cleaning service before our arrival, but that part was poor; not vacuumed, hairy bathtub, no toilet brush,unmade bed with pile of bedding on it [sheets seemed washed, other no]. The vacuum did not work. The kitchen had a broken drawer, and either the dishwasher was poor or the tap water was very hard. The owner did not reply to my questions once our money was received.The second bedroom had no window, although there was a ceiling fan. There was no fan in the bathroom, and the tile in tub is in poor shape. Also there a ppeared to be water or mold damage on the bedroom ceiling. That said, we still had a great time. The property was safe, people were friendly. The building seems old but basically maintained. The pool got murky sometimes, but people can be slack about pre showering.
We are very close to: Scuba Diving, Catamaran Adventures, Horseback Riding on the Beach, Dolphin Encounters, Deep-Sea Fishing Charters, Golf Courses, Kayak Nature Tours, Hiking and Swimming at Gold Rock Beach in the National Park, Birding, Lots of Secluded and Active Beaches, Fitness Center on Premises. Straw Market, Open Air Cafes and Live Music at Port Lucaya are all walking distance from our apartment.
