'Paradise Found', a luxurious oceanfront home, is located in a peaceful native fishing village at the east end of Grand Bahamas Island, but is close enough to Freeport to enjoy the casino, nightlife, shopping and numerous fun tours !! You'll come away from your vacation wishing you didn't have to leave. This is the ultimate location for any type of water fun you can imagine - or for just enjoying the serenity of a beautiful home which is situated directly on the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean only 50’ from the rear of the home!!
You will simply not be able to find a home that is closer to the water in such a fantastic setting as this property.
And to make a great deal even better, you have the full use of a 15’ Freeport Skiff Boat with a 90 HP 4-stroke motor to utilize during your entire stay at no additional charge. The extensive coral reef located directly behind the home and going for miles and miles in each direction creates the ultimate Caribbean experience for those who enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, deep and shallow water fishing for snapper/grouper/mackerel/bonefish/barracuda, swimming or sunset cruises on the calm waters.
If you are looking for the ultimate Island experience in a upscale home located directly on the Caribbean ocean with miles of empty beaches, it simply does not get any better than Paradise Found !
Chris is a professional engineer with a family of 5 that has been visiting Grand Bahama Island since 2006 on family vacations and fishing trips.
Sam is also a professional engineer and IT consultant that has been traveling to Pelican Point and the East End of Grand Bahama Island for several years.
We have traveled to many different locations across the Caribbean on family and fishing trips and we have never found a more idyllic oceanfront home located on a more perfect secluded beach.
We had a super family holiday - parents, grandparents, 12 yr old twins and a 17 year old daughter. First the house - it is built and furnished to a high standard, all of the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the decorations are very tasteful. The verandah and deck are a very relaxing place to be, grandma spent hours reading beneath the coconut palms and even tamed a lizard. Barbecuing in the evenings was fun although the no see um flies can be a pain. You can fish while you barbecue - we caught (and released) lots of fish. The beach is truly lovely - there are rock pools in front of the house and you can find all sorts of creatures under the rocks. Pelicans fly past every day and stingrays occasionally pass too. The boat is a real bonus. The sea was a little rough but it coped well. You launch from a ramp about a mile out of town. There is a lot of shallow coral, mostly in decent condition and with a reasonable amount of sea life. Further out there are rock formations in deeper water - fewer but bigger fish. We saw a dolphin, turtles, reef sharks, nurse sharks, barracuda, grouper, rays and lots of reef fish. The people of Pelican point are really friendly and welcoming - Reverend Freddie Laing looks after the house and is good company. Several of us went to the Sunday service at the church and were made very welcome. Food-wise there is a basic shop in Macleans Town but really you have to buy groceries in Freeport. Prices are high. Eating out - you have to go to Coopers in Macleans Town - very clean and superb lobster. If you like peace and quiet and being outdoors you can't do better than this.
We had an excellent time. The view is beautiful just like the pictures got plenty of rest and everyone we met was friendly.
When we looked for a vacation destination, we were looking to get away. We needed down time, and an opportunity to relax and unwind. Paradise Found was exactly all that. A gorgeous location, lovely property, and wonderful, wonderful time!
The owners of the property were friendly and helpful, providing us "first timers" with plenty of guidance and help. The instructions for the property are comprehensive and getting from the airport to Paradise Found was a breeze. Freddy, who assists with check in, check out and other logistics is a friendly local and it's wonderful to know he's nearby to assist if necessary.
The house was extremely well equipped with comfortable furniture, and everything you could need for a relaxing week at the beach. The decor was perfect and we really were at our dream beach getaway! The instructions include detailed info about what to bring with you, and what to buy for food etc right after the airport, so we weren't lacking for anything.
Of course, the best part of it all is that that GORGEOUS beach is not even 30 feet away from the huge glass sliders lining the beach side of the house. Two of the bedrooms and the large open plan living room/kitchen/ dining room have permanent dream beach views. Everything is well-maintained, and there is even an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand from the beach. The wood walkway leading to the hammock and the beach is great, too.
The ocean is perfect, and the clear water (except for the 2 days that Tropical Storm Julia went past!) was perfect for snorkeling and seeing the fish right off the beach. We also saw small sand sharks, large stingrays, a barracuda and dolphins - all in one day! We picked up beautiful shells and fan seaweed off the beach, took long walks and generally had an amazing time. There were a sum total of about 5 people (all locals) who walked past the entire week!
As a professional photographer, I was in my element and plan on doing a blog post with photos soon (you can see it at www.carynscanlan.com/blog when I get around to it :P ) The sea really IS that turquoise, the fish really are that beautiful, and the sunsets are just incredible.
We had the most amazing time of our lives for our "once-in-a-lifetime" vacation, and even though we had said this is our "once-in-a-lifetime" we hope to be back one day!
We recently stayed at this home for our vacation. The beaches, the home, everything was absolutely amazing. I couldn't believe how beautiful and how private the beach was. The house was amazing and well worth it. I have a 3 year old and a 11 month boy and the water was calm and perfect for them. They loved every minute.
I would absolutely recommended this house. Chris was so helpful with the entire process and answering all of my questions.
We all had a wonderful time and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. The home, truck, boat, people were absolutely fantastic and we had no surprises. We were rewarded by tranquil breezes quiet beaches and crystal clear waters.
Couldn't have been better, Chris. Thank You!
Our home is located in the small settlement of Pelican Point on the East End of Grand Bahamas Island and is situated on a pristine white sand beach and 50' away from the spectacular Carribean Ocean!
