About Belle Mason

Belle Mason purchased this villa in 2011

Why Belle Mason chose Bahamas

We take pride in taking care of our home and our guests. Our beds and linens come from the USA so you have a higher quality stay. Grand Bahama Island is a hidden gem. It has numerous beautiful sandy white beaches and we see at least 3 shades of blue every morning when we go for a walk to Taino Beach. The people are so friendly and helpful, there are no language barriers and we feel very safe at all times. There is a distinct Bahamian culture and the people are very proud. It has a direct flight on Sunwing (peak season) and only takes 2.5 hours from Toronto, Calgary and most parts of the USA. You can also take a fast ferry from Ft. Lauderdale to Freeport which takes 2.5 hours if you don't like to fly or reside near the coast. We also see many Europeon's vacationing here and have said how beautiful the beaches are on our Island. This Island is quickly becoming the destination of choice worldwide. Most times there are seat sales which makes it very affordable to come for a long weekend. They take American dollar at par and this island has duty free/tax free plentiful grocery stores which make it very desirable for large families/friends to vacation here. The Island is appreciative for foreign travellers coming which makes for a great holiday when visiting Port Lacaya Casino, shops and restaurants located 5 min. drive away. It only takes 10 min. to tour all main attractions and the sea is a whole other world of exploration.

What makes this villa unique

This home is well equipped with creature comforts for entertainment, every room has a tv,dvd if you want some alone R&R time. The family room has an entertainment centre, games, latest dvd movie library and for those less savy (like me) board games, cards and books.

Our home is completely renovated with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and marble floor. All bathrooms are completely renovated with granite marble deep soaker tubs. Beds and linens come from USA so very comfortable!

We also have an 800sq. ft loft which has 2 queen beds and a large office with a computer to keep in touch or do business.

For the outdoors, we back onto a pool and canal which you can swim in both or go across the street to Taino beach (5 min. walk).

We are 5 min. drive or 2.5 mile walk to all the shops, restaurants/casino in Port Lucaya. It is so quiet at night that you can hear the ocean with the patio doors open.

Our family have told us how beautiful the breeze is here and there is no humidity from Oct. to March because we live so close to the ocean.

Great Winter Retreat on a Quiet Island

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months in this condo that felt like home. It was one of only six units in a residential area and has a swimming pool as well as a deep water dock on one of the island's many canals. Two beaches are a ten minute walk as is the ferry to Port Lucaya. We rented a car, which was good for grocery shopping and to get to more remote beaches like Fortune Bay and Barbary, but you wouldn't need one for a one or two week stay. The unit had everything noted in the listing. It is great for families, but worked equally well for just two. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet family vacation.

The condo had everything to make us feel at home, cable TV's, games, movie and music DVD's and CD's. Appliances are American and the kitchen is fully equipped. The owners supply beach chairs, swim fins and masks and even fishing tackle. The computer includes Wi-Fi and there's a special phone for local calls to the states and Canada. The unit was very clean and the pool and grounds are maintained weekly. The rear patio includes a table and chairs and a large gas grille. The other units are a mix of seasonal snowbirds and full time residents. We were there long enough to be invited to join the 4:00 PM happy hour group at a nearby dock! Best of all, it was very quiet at night - no trouble falling asleep.

The condo came with a concierge/chef. Andrew met us at the airport and gave as a rundown on island activities. His wife took us to the grocery store after we arrived and they worked as a team to resolve an issue with the clothes dryer. The owners checked in with us regularly to make sure things were going well.

Freeport is not Nassau; it is quiet and unspoiled. We saw one Wendy's and a Burger King; no McDonald's! If you are driving, the roads are great and there is no traffic. We spent most of our time at the beach or watching the trainers in the early mornings at the Dolphin Experience. We also loved Garden in the Glades. Restaurants and what nightlife there is are in Port Lucaya. Most of the tourists are day trippers bussed in from the cruise ships for a few hours. They go to several beach clubs that also offer PWC rentals, parasailing and reef tours. There’s a nice beachfront restaurant down the street that served breakfast, lunch and dinner. Groceries are more expensive than on the mainland, but restaurant prices were comparable to those in the Northeast. Finally, the Bahamian people are wonderful!

Owner's Response: You two were a complete joy to have in our home! We are so happy that you enjoyed your winter holiday in beautiful Freeport, Grand Bahamas! Glad that you assimilated into the culture and people who are amazing as you said! You are always welcome to come back as our home is your home. You were so gracious while we worked out some "property kinks" and happy you saw the value in our team approach. Chef Andrew, Sonia and I loved your sense of humour and approach to life! God Bless and hope to see you again soon! Warmest regards, Belle & Mason

Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at this perfect villa for our honeymoon and it was the best trip we have experienced (and we have travelled A LOT).

The villa is OUTSTANDING and is equipped with everything you are used to at home. There is nothing that the owners Belle and Mason haven't included that you would be used to having at your own home. Everything is clearly labelled to make it as easy as possible for the guests. Belle and Mason are also a free phone call away for any questions you may have! It is so beautiful and comfortable that we wanted to live there forever.

The island is beyond beautiful and the locals couldn't possibly be any kinder and more welcoming. It is a fantastic place to holiday for any age. We did numerous trips to various parts of the island and every experience was so enjoyable and great fun. It would be impossible to run out of things to do for people who enjoy activities.

If you prefer relaxation, there are so many fantastic beaches especially within walking distance from the villa. There is also a pool in the backyard and dock to relax and fish! The weather and sea are sunny and warm all year round.

We highly recommend staying here! We will definitely be making many more trips back and staying at this villa as it is the best one that we have rented out of all of our travels (by far).

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

There were four of us sisters 65 plus enjoying this lovely villa for a week. It had everything anyone would have in their own home. We enjoyed home cooked meals in the villa along with a short walk (10 minutes for us) to Taino beach where we also dined on wonderful meals at the restaurant and of course swimming in the ocean. Activities are close by such as snorkeling, banana boat rides, fishing, glass bottom boat, parasailing, shopping and many more. We also enjoyed swimming in the pool and fishing off the dock. The beds were very comfortable and the nights quiet...We were able to keep up on the ball games back home on the big TV in the living area and the master bedroom. Belle had Chef Andrew meet us at the airport he was very hospitable, taking us to the grocery store on our way to the villa and was always within a phone call away for any questions or needs we had...Belle was very helpful, checking in on us giving us advise on anything from how to work the remote control on the TV, restaurants, activities and such...Between Belle and Chef Andrew we never felt we were alone. It was good to know we had such great people to rely on....I definitely recommend this villa for anyone wishing for a relaxing place to stay yet close to all activities....Thanks Belle for opening up your home for people like us to enjoy...

Family vacation 8/1- 8/8

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a 1 week stay. We had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful and is fully equipped. The bedrooms and beds are large and comfortable. The condo is conveniently located to Taino beach and the marketplace and the other beaches are within a short drive. There is a dock out back, fun for fishing! We had the pool all to ourselves the times we used it. Belle was available, just a phone call away to answer any questions and offer advise on restaurants. We had a great time and thank Belle for making our stay so enjoyable!

A luxury condo on in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay at Belle's condo for one week out of our month long trip to the Bahamas. We traveled by boat with our three kids and two dogs. The home is very spacious and is well stocked with utensils to make a five course meal. Our two son's stayed on the third floor in the loft. We never even saw them the whole vacation. We were able to park our boat in the slip directly behind the condo for a small fee. Overall our family enjoyed our week in Freeport and Belle's home made it even more enjoyable.
