This is me with my family on the beach right outside the property. We live in the UK but love to get over to Grand Bahama as often as possible - if you've experienced the weather in the UK then you'll understand why!
Owner purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner chose West Grand Bahama
We rented this property in March 2008 and found it so perfect that we bought it a few months later. We love the property, it's location and the beautiful island of Grand bahama. We enjoy the wonderful feeling of relaxation and security.
What makes this House unique
Although only 30 minutes flight from Miami or Fort Lauderdale Grand Bahama feels like a different world. The pace of life is relaxed and you can feel the stress falling away from you as soon as you arrive. Every time we arrive at the villa and step out onto the deck we still go 'wow' at the spectacular view of the turquoise view of the ocean, just steps away.

Fabulous Vacation Home!
Absolutely loved this home! I am not great with words so let me list the things: 3 separated bedrooms with attached baths, fully stocked kitchen, seating for everyone in every room. Be it the dining room, living room or spectacular patio, there was an abundance of seating. The patio....you won't want to leave it!! French doors off of every room with screens, so the ocean breeze can float in day and night. We rented a car from Brad's and that too was a smooth transaction. Banana Cay restaurant a picturesque 10 minute walk down the beach open everyday from 10-5...loved it, ate there everyday! We were a party of 6 and everyone had a fabulous time....we will absolutely be back!
Thank you for your very kind words - you and your family are welcome back anytime! Bruce
Beautiful property and location
Beautiful property and location. I have been to Fortune Bay beach many times and it lived up to my expectations. Beautiful porch right on the beach. House is very comfortable. Hope to go back soon. Bruce Winter
Wanted to take this house home!
Wonderful home away from home! Our group of 4 really enjoyed our 8 day stay here. The island is still a little beat up from the last hurricane but the house is beautiful, spacious, and has everything you need. It really is as nice as the pictures! We spent hours sitting on the back porch enjoying the ocean breeze, walked an hour on the beach every day and did some great snorkeling at Paradise Cove. With a friendly and helpful caretaker only a phone call away we really couldn't ask for more. Brad's Car Rental was easy. We enjoyed lunches at Banana Bay (a short walk down the beach) and being visited daily by a blue heron that would circle the house. The choppy water and strong winds kept us from doing as much scuba diving as we had originally planned - but the house was so comfortable, we didn't really need to leave it anyway! Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer!
Thank you so much for your review. It was great having you as guests and we hope that we can welcome you back some day so you can get some scuba diving in!
Fabulous week long stay in April
We thought the pictures of this villa were too good to be true, but it was even better in person. Even though there was much hurricane damage to the surrounding gardens, the villa was just about perfect. It was extremely spacious inside with vaulted ceilings everywhere. Very well furnished with ample supply of towels and linens and a very big kitchen. Powerful air conditioning kept us cool, but plenty of large windows and floor-to-ceiling doors brought the cool sea breezes inside easily.
Access to the beach is incredible and when conditions are right, the snorkeling opportunities are great right off the beach with 4 large clusters of rocks and coral and plenty of sea life including starfish, barracuda and the usual variety of fish. The sand on the beach is an amazing powdery consistency, however sharp coral rocks lurk underwater just inches away. Water shoes are a requirement. The only disappointment was that the beach faces south and the whole time we were there there was a steady and strong 15-20 mph SE wind leading to choppy and cloudy waters. All 5 times we tried to schedule snorkeling tours they were cancelled due to rough conditions.
The nearby pool (3 minute walk) was in good condition, quite warm, and we always had it to ourselves.
Very helpful and friendly staff are a phone call away and provided fresh water for the drinking cooler and extra ice for the fridge multiple times during our week long stay.
Access to town is pretty easy. The roads are wide and most drivers take it nice and slow. It was easy getting used to driving on the left. I couldn't imagine trying to stay here without renting a car.
Thank you for your review and I'm sorry that you were unlucky with the windy weather for your snorkeling trips. Unfortunately that's one thing that we can't control of course! I'm glad that you still had a great time overall. It's not much consolation, but it's rare for the snorkeling trips not to go out for that many days in a row, so you were unlucky. Hopefully you might come back one day and you'll get to go on that trip then - we certainly hope so and would love to welcome you back to Paradise! Thank you, Bruce
Spent a week there (our first time in the Bahamas) with my son & his wife & thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I can't disagree with comments in the other reviews. The water was warm, sand soft, and enjoyed both sight seeing & just laying on the beach & decompressing. The beach is literally 10 steps from the back porch.
The owner, Bruce, and the property manager, Andrew were extremely helpful & responsive to all questions & made the trip easy.
We found Andrew's chef skills superb. He cooked for us 3 nights. He has a menu, (it's easy to order too much!) but be sure to ask for cold Stone Crab if it's in season - it reminds me of Dungeness crab, but easier to eat. His Conch chowder (Manhattan style) is fabulous.
We'd definitely like to come back.
Fantastic home, great service from owner and all parties involved in property management. Andrew met us at airport as promised and escorted us to the property. The island is beat up a little from the recent storms, but there is still plenty to see and do. This island doesn't have the charm of some of the Abacos but you won't find a nicer private home than this one. Great value and honestly we could have stayed just at the house. The Banana Bay restaurant is easily walkable, great food, and fantastic swimming right off the beach with a sandy bottom. A little more rocky in front of the house, but so much the better because there is decent snorkeling (especially for small kids) right there! No really big fish but perfect for the family; save your money unless you are really a hard core snorkeler. Highly recommended!
Thank you very much for your honest review and positive comments. We always love to stay round the house as much as possible too, when we go. It's definitely a wrench to leave! We hope to welcome you back one day.
