About the property

3 bedrooms, sleeps 7, New 2010 luxury villa.

The Hideaway Plumbago Villa is situated in five private acres with live in on site Management and is fenced for security. We overlook the ocean and a few hundred feet from the beach with safe swimming and snorkeling. There are three blue holes (underwater caves) and two reefs. Walk the beach in either direction for miles, you may see no-one for days, just the ripple of the water, birds and sounds of the fish jumping in the water. Take your line and fish right from the beach, then barbecue your catch and enjoy your meal and watch the incredible sunsets. We are also located in a bonefish area. Internet is in the Villa. We have a small fishing boat with Captain that can be rented for fishing, snorkeling and sightseeing trips by the half or full day.

Easter 2009. Hideaway Bahamas villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived via Nassau to Freport from the Uk.We opted to be met and taken to Basset Cove. The villa is stunnig, spacious and is also the show home. Wide screen TV all channels including soccer,even more than back home! pleased the other half. We were able to relax on the patio or walk straight down to the coves and the Sea. So clear and perfect to swim and snorkel. We brought our geer and also fished the blue holes from the shore.A really great experiece for all. On site reception centre for free inernet our skype calls home and local shop and takeaway and bar restaurant. We really made friends with the locals, they took us fishing twice and we were all sad to leave. This is our new hideaway that we hope to return and rent next year. We went into town to do a swim with the dolphins trip and then after a restauant in port Lucaya where we dined and enjoyed the free live entertainment. WE walked accross the road to the Casino and then back to our hideaway. Safe to walk here and they are very old fashioned English speaking, courtious and friendly. No traffic jams. The whole Island is huge and not too many people. Highly recommended, the perfect getawy.

Owner's Response: This family arrived late in the day and after a long haul flight from London were probably pretty tired. We offer an airport collection service (at extra cost) for all guests. We willl also shop in advance supplies to stock up the guests refrigerator etc. Everything we do is on a personal basis to quickly familiarize our guests to Hideaway Bahamas. We even alert the locals of our clients special requirements like fishing and snorkelling trips locally. The locals also provide our baby sitter and additional maid services. Most of our guests become friends and continue to communicate with the local residents here after they leave. We have regular repeat guests visiting us each year and as this is idillic to those wanting to get away from it all or work or write, we have so far attracted a UK lawyer and a US fiction writer to buy homes here too. We look forward to seeing our old and new guests throughout in the near future.

Perfect Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in late May 2017 for the week and found pretty much what we were hoping for. It was our first trip to Grand Bahama so we were unfamiliar with the island but Liz and her team really made our getaway just perfect. James and Ezra live on site with their very friendly black lab Oscar (what a great dog!). They got us settled in and checked back a few times to make sure everything was to our liking.

The Hideaway is 30 miles from the rest of the tourist area in Port Lucaya and Freeport so a car is a must if you intend to get around. We really loved the fact that we could drive around to see local sights and restaurants while coming back to the private seclusion of our villa on the sea. The villa has plenty of screened windows and doors so that on many nights, you fall asleep to the sound of the surf. We did get a bit warm and had some rain late in the week but the AC was perfect. Also, their selection of books and DVD's came in very handy. The beach stretches for a few miles to the west of the property and we didn't see a soul while on the beach or kayaking along the shoreline.

The kitchen had EVERYTHING you could need to stay in and prepare meals including a gas grill for outdoor cooking. We spent our mornings in the screened porch with coffee and breakfast looking and listening to the surf. In the evenings we did go restaurant hopping since this was vacation. Now that we know our way around, we can't wait to come back. this was the Perfect Private Getaway and just what we were looking for. Thank you Liz, James and Ezra

Great hideaway !

  • 4 of 5

The 5 of us finally arrived after not having google maps available to us. We relied on the kindness of the Bahamian people to find the place. Once we arrived, we were thrilled at the space we all had and the layout of the villa. James and Oscar the dog appear once in a while, but other than that, we had the whole grounds to ourselves. Great beach a short walk away. Would recommend to any family who wants a place 1/2 hour from the action.. We enjoyed it.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I hate to write a review because I don't want it to be taken next time...upon rolling in we were a little worried because it is pretty isolated, but after we settled in it was paradise. The water is beautiful, the beaches pristine. The house immaculate. The owners were very helpful along with the staff that resides there. If you seek solitude, and only waves crashing to the shore it is the place to be. I can't wait to go back. If you have teenagers looking for a little more excitement it may not be the place, but for everyone else, here it is.

Amazingly fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We came over to celebrate my daughter's graduation and for much needed R&R. We were greeted by Liz ,John and Sharley the dog, made us feel instantly right at home. The Villa is lovely! We did rent a car and we needed it to go back and forth from town. We swam in the beautiful Ocean every day! The blue holes were amazing and the water is beautifully clear and blue. We did not have a worry in the world with James on site to help with anything we had questions about... And Oscar the lab. Thank you for an amazing time that we plan on making a yearly event. Lori, Kait, Shar, Emily and Ari....

Gorgeous secluded hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is as nice as the pictures, maybe even better. Beach is great. Unless we drove into town we didn't see people unless we walked a half mile or so to the next developed spot along the beach. And then we saw only one person there. If you want a getaway in a beautiful three bedroom villa without people nearby, this is the place. There were also a handful of lesser types of units there, but the only occupants we saw were arrivals on the eve of our departure. Liz and James were great to deal with. We drove our rental car around to eat and shop and see beaches and parks, but could have stayed the whole time at the villa and been perfectly content (assuming you like solitude). My two college age daughters were perfectly happy to walk the beach, swim, read in the hammock, etc. We even went to the supermarket and bought food and grilled burgers a few times. I took one of the kayaks out for a spin, too. Would definitely go back. .
