Overview

Davenport Villa Rental Photos and Description

Platinum rated & 1 of just 4 penthouse villas in the resort on the 2nd floor!

About Our Villa

Our Grand Bahama penthouse villa has been rated platinum, the highest of four categories as rated by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, placing it among the top 20% of villas managed by Wyndham at Bahama Bay! The most recent upgrade, completed in January, 2015 is the renovation of the kitchen, including painting and adding cabinets, replacement of cabinet doors, installation of new granite countertops, sink, faucet, backsplash and under-cabinet lighting!

The first thing you will notice when approaching our Grand Bahama penthouse villa is that it is one of only four penthouse villas at the resort situated on the second floor, rather than the third floor, affording access to the spaciousness of a Grand Bahama penthouse villa with very few steps. The villa is situated just above a 2 bedroom villa that we also own, making rental of both great for families and friends travelling together, but still wanting to maintain some individual privacy or for a special occasion or family reunion. Combined, both units can sleep up to 14!

Upon opening the door to our villa, you will feel as though you are on a tropical island. The tropical-themed, beautifully appointed, fully equipped penthouse villa boasts vaulted ceilings as well as over 1700 square feet of living space and many upgrades not found in the standard 3 bedroom villas. It is also filled with many unique owner-added features and artwork as well as new carpeting throughout.

An open concept features the kitchen, dining and living area extending onto the screened veranda, which overlooks a very private setting landscaped with tropical vegetation. The private veranda, which stretches across the rear of the villa with access from either the living area, master bedroom, or second master bedroom via sliding glass doors, features an outdoor table that seats 6 and is a wonderful place to enjoy meals or just relax.

The fully equipped kitchen area features granite countertops, premium stainless steel appliances, under-cabinet lighting and a separate cupboard or bar area (unique to our villa) where you can prepare your favorite drinks. The beautifully decorated dining/living area features tropical wicker furniture, a newly refurbished sleeper sofa and loveseat, flat screen TV and a ceiling fan/light adorned in palm fronds that will keep you cool on a warm summer evening.

The first master bedroom, conveniently located just off the living area, includes a king bed, access to the veranda via separate sliding glass doors, ceiling fan with light, flat screen TV, spacious walk-in closet and a spacious en-suite bath which includes double sinks, a walk-in shower and separate soaking tub. On the opposite side of the living area is a second master bedroom featuring a queen bed, flat screen TV, ceiling fan and light, and access to a separate screened veranda via sliding glass doors. A third bedroom, just off the kitchen, features two twin beds, a flat screen TV, and shares a bath with the second bedroom. Children will be sure to enjoy the beach-themed decor in the third bedroom! The large shared bath features double sinks, a walk-in shower and separate soaking tub.

The villa also features a laundry room with full-size washer and dryer.

About Dave and Janet

Janet and I are residents of a small town in the vicinity of Allentown, Pennsylvania. We are the proud parents of two lovely daughters who also enjoy vacationing at Bahama Bay. I graduated from Penn State and still root for the Nittany Lions and Janet graduated from Muhlenberg College. Both of our daughters graduated from the University of Delaware and were recently married. We all enjoy spending time together with family and friends and lead active lifestyles which include cruising (cruise ports are convenient to Bahama Bay), hiking, swimming and kayaking. I recently retired, enjoy woodworking and I'm always working on a home project.

Dave and Janet purchased this villa in 2012

Why Dave and Janet chose Davenport

We enjoy escaping the cold winters of Pennsylvania and have been visiting Florida in the winter since 2009 when we bought our first 2BR villa situated just below this unit at Bahama Bay! Our original intentions were to purchase a villa where we could enjoy a relaxing retreat from our usually hectic lifestyle. We also wanted to find a place where we can enjoy the company of family and friends and new acquaintances in a beautiful, relaxed setting, and offer a premium location close to activities and attractions that would appeal to all ages. Needless to say, that was a huge challenge, but we truly believe we have found what one of our renters has called 'a little piece of heaven'. Our love for the area and resort as well as the need for some extra space to accomodate more family and friends led us to purchase this larger villa in 2012. The adjacent locations of both villas makes it a perfect setting for family and friend reunions, which when combined can accomodate up to 14.

What makes this villa unique

What makes this villa special is that it is only one of four Grand Bahama 3BR villas (1700 sq. ft.) in the entire resort that is situated on the 2nd, rather than 3rd floor. It's screened veranda area is larger than most and includes a large table and eight chairs. The back of the villa is secluded, landscaped and does not face other units.

Also, because our villa is managed on-site by Wyndham Resort Management, you can trust the quality and reputation of a world-wide organization and rely on the availability of 24 hour on-site hotel-like service.

Lastly, this villa is particulary unique to us because it is our home-away-from-home, which we treat with the same care and diligence as we do our primary residence. We cordially invite you to come and enjoy the convenient location yet serene setting, take part in the many activities, walk the beautiful tropical grounds and relax in your tropical-themed getaway for an unforgettable vacation experience at Bahama Bay Resort & Spa.

First Class unit and owners

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this condo from 3/11-3/18 to watch my daughters college softball team play for the week. We have stayed at Bahama Bay the previous 5 years watching my sons team play as well but always booked directly through the resort. Truthfully, I had some reservations about booking directly with an owner but we were pleasantly pleased dealing with Dave and Janet. They are first class all the way and the condo is in terrific condition. Kudos to them for for their care of the condo.

Wish them all the best.

Very Comfortable and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 weeks at this Penthouse and found that it was very comfortable and clean. We would recommend this Unit without hesitation. At the Resort itself you are conveniently located near the main pool, and not too far from the restaurant and pool/beach. The owners of this Unit are honest and easy to deal with. You will not be disappointed. Everything is as represented, clean and up to date. We plan on coming back for sure.

A Definite 5 Star Place

  • 5 of 5

Yes…this is a 5 star place. We stayed in the owner’s 2-bedroom condo in 2012, and then this new 3-bedroom condo in 2013 with three adult children. What an absolutely beautiful place. During each visit we really experienced a place of heaven! We learned how to relax and this location allows us to recharge our batteries! We have every intention of using these same units each year when we visit Florida. Each unit was very spacious, well furnished and spotless. You can tell it is their home away from home in how well they have tastefully decorated the place. The owners have upgraded appliances, added flat screen TVs in every bedroom and added beautiful art work throughout. The full size kitchen allows you to prepare whatever meals you choose to. The large screened veranda with added privacy was perfect for relaxing at days end.

The resort is well maintained, the pools were beautiful and we also enjoyed the pool bar, which hosts a nice big flat screen TV. Each day we walked or jogged around the resort property, enjoyed the views and also found time to use the fitness center. Most importantly we felt safe in this beautiful resort property.

The resort location is close enough to all the theme parks and also close enough to take a day trip to the east or west coast. The owners added another personal touch by recommending local restaurants and area attractions to visit. We enjoyed their recommendations, especially Manny’s restaurant.

Can’t wait to come back… this is a solid 5 star choice!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words and we are happy that you enjoy staying in our villas. We hope you come back next year and bring more family! With both villas you can sleep 14 and their proximity to each other is a definite plus. We have plans for many additional enhancements and refurbishments this year to both villas and as of this writing the exterior of our condo is being re-painted. We're glad that you enjoyed Manny's. Its one of our favorite places to go and one of the local's favorites. We hope you will consider our villas in your future vacation plans.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay both times we visited Bahama Bay. The first time we stayed in the owner's two bedroom villa. We had such a great experience, we came back again this past January and brought her parents along. This time we stayed in the penthouse villa which was just as enjoyable.

Bahama bay is located at a great location where we were easily able to visit the theme parks, local bars, and even a day trip to Tampa. No matter what age you are, there is something here to do for everyone.

The villas were both extremely spacious, well kept, nicely decorated, and updated. The comfort of the rooms actually made it difficult to leave! At the resort, we especially loved the pool and serene environment. The pool area had both lounge chairs on deck and also a beach like area with comfortable chairs and palm trees. Relaxing there with a piña colada in hand from the pool bar made it feel like paradise.

Lastly, each morning we really enjoyed running on the nature trail located just feet away from our villa! We will definitely be returning and I look forward to recommending these two clean and beautiful condos to my friends and family.
