Overview

Windsor Park Condo Rental Photos and Description

Top floor Ocean facing 2 attached studios recently renovated fresh and clean

Welcome to our Beachfront Bahamas Condos!

We love the Bahamas and enjoy our time there. When our apartment is empty, we offer it for rental to people who we hope will enjoy it as much as we do!

Our names are Liz & Don. We are the long time owners of unit #1503 VRBO 35737.

Please read our online reviews for units 1603, 1605 and 1503 (search Liz and Don Coral Beach) to see what our valued guests' experience has been! We take great pleasure and care in providing a clean and comfortable vacation rental to nice people. We enjoy getting to know each of our guests and we have established a friendship with many repeat guests!

1603/1605 is the unit that we have always wanted to own!! When it came up for sale we had to grab it! This property is unique at Coral Beach because it is two units that are rented together. They perfectly complement each other and offer double the space!

We have made several improvements since we bought it. It is the perfect location on the top floor of building one, facing the ocean. It features two large terraces. It also has a smaller balcony with a bistro table that's perfect for coffee or cocktails.

About Liz & Don

We are Liz & Don. Don has been coming to Coral Beach since his parents bought there in the 1970's! Liz & Don bought #1503 in 2006 and love the Coral Beach and Grand Bahama Island community.

Liz & Don purchased this condo in 2012

Why Liz & Don chose Bahamas

When this property came up for sale, we had to buy it because it is a rare gem. There are very few like this at Coral Beach. It is on the 6th floor of building one. The two adjoining units are abutted by large terraces on each end. which is a rarity. Plus, it is the top floor of our building. The view is gorgeous from all directions!

What makes this condo unique

The previous owners had the intention of making this one unit but didn't complete the renovation. Our condo is configured as separate studios that rent as one unit, separated by a 'hotel' type door. The ocean facing unit is #1605. It offers a king bed and a overstuffed futon. #1603 has an ocean view and a large western facing deck. It offers a few feet of extra space; it has a queen bed and sleeper sofa and a chaise sleep chair.

Charming Stay at Oceanfront Studio

  • 5 of 5

We got just what we expected and just what we were looking for with our stay in Liz & Don's place at Coral Beach. We had a direct ocean view from the front room, a comfortable king size bed, and a fully equipped kitchen, which we prepared most of our meals in. It was very quiet, and not crowded. We were the only people on the beach at times, which was great. The water is crystal-clear and the beach is super clean. The pool was nice to have too, overlooking the ocean. There is a little on-site restaurant-bar that supplemented our own cooking. The food there is quite good - much better than the touristy options up the beach in Port Lucaya and in the Market. We highly recommend the fish-burgers (fish sandwiches) and any of the curry dishes - delicious.

Logistics-wise, Liz & Don were in immediate communication the couple of times we reached out with questions. We took a cab from the airport to the condo (did not rent a car) - ~20 minute ride/$20, and stopped at the Sands Brewery, just down the road from the Airport. We highly recommend stopping here on the way in - it is the cheapest option to pick up beverages before you get to the condo. Beyond that, there is a Solomon's (akin to an American grocery store) that you could run/walk/take a cab to (2 miles), for all grocery items you may want. We highly recommend staying here, and would stay here again!

Retreat to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our amazing vacation. Our trip was even better than I had imagined. Liz & Don were a pleasure to work with and guided us through our first vrbo experience with ease. The condo was absolutely wonderful. It was just as pictured and described. The view from the terrace alone made the whole trip worthwhile. Wow. The condo was decorated serenely and was a peaceful retreat for our family. We spent most of our time on the beach and in the ocean. I was glad to see the sand toys and beach chairs. We took the cooler down to the palm huts for lunches. Most meals we either cooked in the condo or ate down at the condo bar. We enjoyed drinks every night and loved chatting with the other guests. Shuffle board was a fun surprise. We called Queenie for taxi services. She was a delight and drove us all over the island. Shopping at Solomon's was a neat experience, be aware that the prices are 2-3x of the States. We were SO grateful to have the pack n' play. The reef was stunning to look at. We followed directions when we went snorkeling and found the brain coral! We walked along the shore to Port Lucaya Marketplace a few times. It was fun to shop around. The kids (and adults) really enjoyed feeding the Sharks and eating at Pier One - and I made sure to bring cash, as they've been known to be scandalous with credit cards. Jet skiing with our five and seven year olds was a blast! I look forward to returning next year, if not sooner!!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have had the unique experience of staying at Don & Liz's, and then due to a previous booking, we had to move down the beach to one of the big hotels. Within minutes of arriving at the hotel, I was wishing I was back at Coral Beach!! It had all the things the big hotel had (pool, private beach with umbrellas, shuffle board & lawn bowling, poolside bar with food) but Coral Beach was quiet and felt like you were staying with friends. We also had fully stocked kitchens to make our own dinners if we wanted to stay in. The rooms were very clean and the kitchens had everything we needed. There were even beach chairs and towels to take down to the beach so we didn't need to pack our own. Don was always a phone call away if we had any questions and they provided us with all the information we needed to fully enjoy our stay on the island. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and it was nice and quiet at night for a great night's rest. We could easily get to the grocery store and restaurants, as well as the sites with usually just a short drive. I would stay here again over any hotel stay. Thank you again Don & Liz!!

Escape From The Cold

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal place to escape a horrible winter that did not want to end. The location is excellent, the unit above average and the owners' exceptionally easy to deal with. We are not "beach people" but certainly enjoyed Coral Beach and, if at all possible, will return for more fun and relaxation in the sun. Oh! Although we like to explore and find things on our own, it was great to have all of the suggestions that Liz and Don provided.

Excellent Experience and Highly Recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased when we arrived. The two units were spotlessly clean and as depicted on this website. We had a wonderful time with everything stocked that you would need to cook and live at this small resort!! We left calling cards for the next guests because the cell phones did not work...the number was expired because the previous guests did not use the phone number. It is easy to use the calling cards and we left instructions too. The blinds do not rotate shut on one unit so I just wore my sleeping mask because it was so sunny! No big deal. The snorkeling was great and we went to the recommended spot by the owners two days in a row! We are older and fit right in with the retired crowd but also saw all ages there including children. It is a great place to get away and the small restaurant/bar there is very inexpensive! These owners are first rate! Oh, we recommend calling Queenie's Taxi Service because she is the greatest! Oh, just an FYI...You will need to call a taxi to go grocery shopping and they will call a taxi after you are done. Easy!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your your wonderful comments and well as the feedback on the blinds and the cell phone! After having issues with the blinds ourselves, we decided to upgrade both units with beautiful fresh full-length curtains! We also purchased new SIM cards for all the cell phones. Don and I are gratified to hear that the condo and it's amenities are enjoyed! We have a great team working with us and we are thankful for each member. We will pass your kind words along! Please come back again!!

Alberta Canada

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 rented these two units together over Christmas - my daughters had 1603 and we had 1605 (the parents got the better view of course!). The condos are as depicted in the photos - very homey, very clean. There is a closet with beach towels, extra linen. A washer and dryer just down the hall (uses tokens purchased at front desk).The rental process was smooth and hassle-free. Liz and Don give detailed information on the condo and on things to see and do on the island. They had recommended Brad's car rental, however we didn't book ahead and there were no cars available, also no cars with Avis - we got one through Island Jeep and Car Rental - it was pretty expensive, I would reserve ahead of time if we were to go again. We also took the "bus" (vans) a few times - $1.25 per trip, they'll pull over and pick you up even if they're going the opposite direction! We enjoyed a lovely Christmas dinner on the beach at the Coral Beach Bar and Grill. Great pina coladas too. My husband and daughter dove with UNEXSO - they walked there on the days we didn't have a car, probably a 20 minute walk. They were happy with their dives except there was a lot of wind, one dive cancelled as so choppy. We would absolutely recommend this condo - having the two together was really nice as my daughters had their own space, yet we were still all together.

Notes:
We have traveled throughout the Bahamas. While each island has it's own individual charm and natural beauty, Grand Bahama Island is unique. It is easily accessible by air world-wide, and by ships and boats from the U.S. and other islands. The business, infrastructure, and opportunities for tourism make Grand Bahama an ideal destination. Our condos at Coral Beach are in the perfect location; in that they are within walking distance, and close driving distance to the the majority of places that tourists like to visit. If you're looking to see beaches 'off the beaten path,' we can help you with that, also! Thank you for considering our condos and our Island for your next holiday or vacation! All the best, Liz & Don.
