About the property

PARADISE FOUND - 4 BEDROOMS, 2 BATHS, SLEEPS 8

'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 !

If you want to be remote......

  • 4 of 5

I looked for a house on the sand, where I wouldn't see anyone and I could completely unwind. I got all of these things in this house......

Overall we had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed our time. The house is very spacious, but the furnishings are quite shabby and need to be updated, as do the bathrooms.

The house is directly on the sand and has beautiful views. The house comes with the use of a boat which I thought would be perfect for our party especially as all three men are VERY experienced boaters. You must note that that the boat ramp which is about a mile or so down the road is VERY narrow, so unless you have a ton of experience backing a boat on a trailer down a ramp, don't even attempt it. Unless the water is perfectly flat it is not possible to take the boat out as it's too dangerous. We were only able to use the boat 3 out of our 7 days which was disappointing as even if there is a light chop it is too harrowing to take it out.

You need to come prepared! There are very few places to get provisions or eat within 15 minutes from the house. We did go to all of the restaurants recommended and they were all fine, but mostly all sold the same fried conch etc. Get plenty of food for breakfasts and lunches. BRING BUG SPRAY. You need as much bug spray as sun screen. The bugs/biting flies are brutal!

We also brought blow up floats with us which was great because we used them a ton of times. There is a hammock outside which was nice.

Again, overall it was a pleasant stay.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Chris and Sams house in Pelican Point twice now. We had a great time there, and the fishing and snorkeling are top notch right in front of the boat ramp. I am sure I will be back many times in the future. Freddy the caretaker is very nice as well. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle. The only thing I would recommend is to bring plenty of food as there are not allot of dining options at this end of the island. But who cares about restaurants when there are fish to be caught and snorkeling to be done! I am sure I will be back with my family in the near future. Have a good day!! Dylan

Best. Vacay. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from this beautiful home! We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather as well as an amazing vacation! Freddie and his wife are wonderful, they answered all questions and were very helpful! The owners even contacted us on the trip to discuss/take care of a little issue we had with the boat. We ventured out every day snorkeling and spearfish in the beautiful water. We used a local named PJ from the east end to take us out one day for spearfishing. Bishops in High Rock has great food as well as a bar on the sandy beach! Coopers in Mclean's is delicious as well. We were able to learn the island pretty well and found Sawyer's Save a lot for groceries, found out they have better prices than Solomons-which is just down the street from Sawyer's. The house is well equipped with everything you need! The beach is breath taking! We also had Stephaine Poth from Freeport come and take family photos- she truly captured the beauty of this place! (I will upload some pictures on here if I can.)

Honestly if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you have come to the perfect place! Bring bug spray :) if the wind isn't blowing the sand flies will get ya.

We brought our own spearfishing/snorkeling gear, although we were beginners we didn't go one evening without fresh fish on the table.

We can not wait to return-already planning on coming back next year!!

All the locals are very nice and love sharing stories with you!

Although there was a hurricane that came through back in October, Grand Bahama and Freeport are rebuilding the island and looking forward to the tourist coming back.

Truly one of the best vacations we have ever been on!

Thank you Chris and Sam for letting us enjoy your paradise!!

High quality property in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

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.
