Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleep 7 comfortably

This very well built home has a tranquil feeling.Great architectural detail, from the African Mahogany entry doors to the travertine floors and granite counters. As soon as you enter you feel as if you are a part of the ocean itself. The huge windows and sliding glass doors allows endless views of the ocean, in all its splendor. The house itself was designed to take advantage of the tranquil benefits of the ocean, but the interior also gives you the Tommy Bahama feel.

The home has all you need to make your vacation easy and complete. It has all appliances from a food processor, high end blender, microwave to many wine openers. It has blow dryers, straighteners anything extra that you would not want to have to pack. It has a beautiful gas stove and also has a large grill on the 60 foot back porch, to grill if you should so desire.

There are two identical large master suites at each end of the home, each with,large walk in marble showers and each has there own 16 jet 2 person Jacuzzi tub, along with his and her vanities.Each suite has a slider that opens on to the rear porch, with endless views of the Atlantic ocean.

The third room is spacious and has a guest bathroom, complete with a full shower.

The gourmet kitchen is great for entertaining, with a large granite counter top that seats 8 easily. It has refrigerator and also a drink refrigerator to stock your sodas and beers.

The family room has large screen tv, two leather couches, wall unit, and coffee table from Indonesia. Very inviting and comfortable.

It also has a full washer and dryer.

The back porch is where a glass of wine to watch the sunset is a must. Plenty of out door furniture along with a dining table and six chairs are in this 60 foot screened in back porch. We screened it in so no insects would ruin your outdoor experience. The back porch also has outdoor speakers with siruis satelite, so you can choose your music for your mood.

We have one of the most beautiful coral reefs in our back yard. Just put on your snorkeling gear (We have lots of extra if you dont bring your own) and swim out to see a magnificent aquarium. We have a sturdy blow up boat and other huge party blow up rafts that hold many people to enjoy the water and sun. The private beach itself is great for long walks. If you like to fish we have people who would take you fishing if you dont have your own boat. If you do have your own boat we have dockage available for an extra fee, within walking distance.Maid sevrice is available for your household needs and a local Bahamian chef can be arranged if you desire a night off. We are in walking distance to a great local Bahamian restaurant that cannot be missed.. Also you can experience true Bahamian living by driving into the West End Village (The oldest settlement on Grand Bahama) and experience the charming restaurants or you could drive or have a taxi take you 10 mins away to Old Bahama Bay for fine entertaining and other restaurants. You could also rent a car in the immediate area and drive 30 mins away to try your gambling luck in Lucaya where there is a casino and plenty of dining and dancing.

About Kevin and Diane Floyd

We have always dreamed to have an island home and found a beautiful piece of property on an expansive private beach in a quaint Bahamian village. We spent 4 years traveling to and from the Bahamas in our own boat bringing building materials and supplies to create our beautiful dream home in the Bahamas. Much blood ,sweat and love went into the home. After the last four years of enjoying the home on a consistent basis we decided to start renting it this year. Now that the children have left we seem to be not using it as much and have decided to let others enjoy it.

Why Kevin and Diane Floyd chose West Grand Bahama

If you are looking for privacy and to be able to walk on a deserted beach for five miles and not see a soul this is the place for you. Once you enter the house you have a panoramic view of the ocean. The tranquil feeling is over whelming.

What makes this house unique

Experience true Bahamian living. No hussle and bussle yet close enough to do all the commercial stuff if you want to.

Absolute Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank you both for allowing us to stay at your beautiful vacation home. We had a fantastic time and the trip couldn't have gone better. Eric was very kind and accommodating for us which really made the check in/check out seamless. The ocean view was amazing! Our only problem now is trying to figure out if we can squeeze in another trip before the end of the year:)

Thank you again for all your thoughtful texts and emails. We have rented from home away for years now throughout the country and you were by far the best of all. Highly recommend this rental home who is thinking about trying home away.... you'll never want to stay in a hotel room again!

Absolutely blown away!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this magnificently beautiful home for the 4th of July! I was completely blown away, the architecture and interior design was outright amazing. The place was spotless and the decor put you immediately in vacation mode. Just off the shores of the beach is a beautiful reef which you can snorkle and dive. The house amenities are outstanding, with just about any activity you can think of inside and outside (darts, ping pong, kayaks, full home stereo system just to name a few). The view is incredible. The sunset and sunrise will surely take your breath away. The owners and help were so very helpful and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend this home to anybody looking to truly get away!

AMAZINGLY PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

This property by far succeeded my expectations! I have never been to the Bahamas before. It was a girl trip to celebrate my 40th birthday. From the moment we met Eric (caretaker extraordinaire) at the airport to our final goodbyes 8 days later it was heaven! It has been my first vacation that I never wanted to leave the house. The house and property was so inviting that we were more than comfortable being on the beach. From beach combing, snorkeling, kayaking, and just enjoying each others company under the sun, I couldn't ask for more. The house is beautiful!! The tile throughout the home was awesome! Everyone enjoyed a soak in Jacuzzi tubs in each of the master suits. The décor was impeccable. Very tasteful something to be admired. We loved the screen enclosed deck which is huge, a great place to drink your morning coffee, enjoy a meal, and watch the amazing sunsets in the evening. It was nice for Alaskan girls that the weather wasn't too hot, 85 degrees was just right! Some came home with a nice bohemian glow where others came home a bit red. One of the best features of the island was how nice and hospitable the locals were. Never knowing what to expect when you travel it is always nice to meet and visit with great people who you can share stories with!! Totally helps make the trip unforgettable! Eric, Erica, Country (Derek), and Timmy made my birthday awesome. Timmy showed us how to clean conch shells, remove the meat, and get ready to transport home. Eric, Erica, and Country made the most amazing bohemian style meal, from fresh conch salad, peas and rice, snapper, coleslaw, and a wonderful chocolate cake. There was more than enough food to last for days. It was a real treat almost made forget how old I am. I couldn't have asked for a better place or better people to spend my vacation with!! I am truly blessed to have found this property and to have such a memorable experience that will stay with us Alaskan girls forever! We will always have the adventures of Bootle Bay and the Pineapple house a memory for years to come!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Lets start from the very beginning... Diane was a pleasure to deal with. She was very responsive and informative, and made sure that every detail we would need pre-/post-arrival was covered. All we had to do was to let her know when we would be arriving.

This brings us to Eric. He met us at the port and drove us first to the supermarket, then to the house. He pointed out various sites along the way and told us a little bit about the island. He also rented a car to us which was waiting at the house when we arrived. Next, Eric brought us into the house and walked us through, explaining anything that wasn't obvious and answering questions along the way. He showed us the whole house and said that if there were any issues, we could contact him and he would be right over. He lives a short walk away, but fortunately, we did not need his services.

The porch spans the entire length of the house and has a 180 degree of the ocean, which is probably no more than 30 yards away from the house. We had breakfast and dinner on the porch and it was marvelous. Listening to the waves come in is very soothing and relaxing, which explains those awesome post-lunch naps I ended up taking on the lounge chairs. The porch is completely enclosed with a very fine mesh screen (floor to ceiling) which is a Godsend against the bugs, but almost invisible when looking out to the ocean. It's also situated so that there is always shade there and the breeze keeps it nice and cool. Sunsets are easier to view then sunrises, but both are equally as enjoyable.

The beach itself is great. The best part is that it's all yours and there is no one there to disturb you. It's a little rocky at the shore line but there is plenty of sand to play in, and once you get in the water, you are literally swimming with the fish. We saw a great number of little fish swimming around. Nothing bigger than your hand, but it was still fun to see them dart around. The water was crystal clear and warm and the constant island breeze was very pleasant when you get out and the sun starts to warm you up.

We had lunch/dinner at Old Bahama Bay (~5 mi. away). Once you tell them you are there to eat, they are more than happy to let you in. We took Bayshore Road on our trips back and caught the local fishermen preparing fresh conch right on the shore.

Overall, this is a great house in a great location managed by great people. Absolutely no complaints or regrets. Do yourself a favor and rent this house.

amazing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an incredible stay at the Pineapple House! We were two couples and two toddlers and this house provided us with a perfect tropical vacation to get away from the cold winter. As others have said, the location can't be beat. You truly feel like you have your own private beach. We spent just about every day on the beach enjoying the hammock (amazing), kayaks, swimming and taking walks. This is a great house to bring kids to as it is very safe, the beach is RIGHT there and the screened in porch gives them extra room to run around. If we weren't on the beach we were enjoying the porch. We had coffee out there in the mornings and spent every night out there listening to the waves without having to deal with bugs! The house itself is gorgeous, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for cooking all of our meals and there was a grill as well. I think we only ate out for two meals, once when we visited Old Bahama Bay and again when we went to Port Lucaya (both I would recommend visiting). I have to talk about Eric because he truly made our trip special. If you need anything at all, Eric can get it for you. He's incredibly friendly, helpful and was always reachable. Get your car through him! Honestly having someone pick you up and then drop you off at the airport without having to wait on either end was a huge bonus. We did use the van frequently through the week as well, I don't know that you'd want to go without. We also utilized the service to do grocery shopping for us beforehand which I would highly recommend. It was amazing just to start our vacation the moment we got off of the plane! Diane was incredibly easy to work with and went above and beyond to answer our many questions leading up to the trip. We also met some of the neighbors who were so kind and helpful. There are so many other great things I could say about this house, I certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in paradise and we hope that we will be able to return as well!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing vacation home. I will skip all the fantastic things about the house because you can read them in the other reviews. I will write about things that I was worried/concerned about and reassure you that you have NOTHING to be worried about.

1. Booking directly w/ Diane is fine. Initially I was concerned that booking direct w/ the owner and not the app or website that I was not secured or that this was somehow a scam. But this is 100% safe and secure. Everything that Diane promised is absolutely true.

2. Eric is amazing and will pick you up from the airport.

3. If you have small children; the rocks at the beach in front of the house can be dangerous. Walk down about 20 feet, nothing but sand.

I will for sure come to this island again and when I do I will 100% stay at the pineapple house.
