Many people have asked me this... 'Are those the actual photos of the unit?' Yes, definitely! That is the actual unit you will be staying in. The per night rates excludes taxes and departure cleaning fees. To be clear on the departure cleaning fees, the cleaning fee covers cleaning when unit is vacated only. There will be no resort fees as per other similar rental properties (i.e. there is no extra charge to use the resort facilities). Parking and wireless internet connections are free. Wash soap, dish washing liquid and toiletries will be provided minimally. We do provide adequate amount of towels and cutlery for your stay. During your stay, we encourage you to bring your daily toiletries or/and purchase other items of need from the nearby grocery stores like Publix or Target.

I’m a computer geek with an engineering degree educated in Wales and England. I currently reside in the United States with my wife and two kids. After my first son was born, I gave up the engineering job that required constant travel so that I could stay close to my family. Since then, I’ve been building my own small business specializing in computer services. That business is growing right along with my two sons, and so putting family first is always the best decision. My beautiful wife and I have already enjoyed a Disney vacation with the boys, and I look forward to making many more memories with the most important people in my life. Orlando, Florida is a place that we love and is truly the happiest place on earth. I hope that your stay in Bahama Bay and the activities you plan on your holiday will bring you closer to those who join you in the adventure. Perhaps you’ll return here again and again. After all, every successful story has a sequel. Well wishes and happy vacationing!

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and since we’ve returned home have recommended your condo to many friends. I hope you don’t mind, once they decide to take a trip to Orlando, if we pass along your e-mail address to them. We will return to Orlando in the next few years and I hope that we can stay at your condo again.
This is home away from home. We had everything we needed in the condo. The pools were beautiful. The owner was very helpful.
I have stayed at Bahama Bay 7 times since 2005. I have noticed over the years that the resort grounds have been maintained to an excellent standard but that the apartments haven't received the same attention. This apartment was maintained to a reasonable standard but not what I would describe as luxurious. However given the cost which was inflated due to the weak pound but at the same period last year would have been about right, it pretty much met with my expectations. It was very clean, so no issues there. However on arrival there were 2 extinguished light bulbs, the shared bathroom toilet seat was not fitted correctly (one hinge not secured), there was some water damage marks on the ceiling and a missing slat from the blind in the living room. There was no chopping board in the kitchen, the coffee mugs were not matching and the crockery in general was not of the same standard experienced in similar apartments. It looked cheap. The fridges in all the other apartments I have stayed in all had ice makers but this just had ice cube trays. I reported the disrepair issues to reception the next day and reparations were made in good time. This will be my last stay at Bahama Bay until they have upgraded the apartments significantly as you can get better value elsewhere which is unfortunate as I love the scale of the resort, not to big like some others which feel very corporate. I emailed Melvin to advise of my findings and he responded very quickly involving the resort Manager. Putting my experience into context, it did not affect my enjoyment of my stay and I pretty much knew what I would get just don't expect luxury.
This was our 3rd stay at Bahama Bay & we absolutely love it - it is fabulous!
This was our 1st stay in this particular condo & it is immaculate and so comfortable. Our dealings with the owner - Melvin, were faultless.
This place is a real 'home from home' & Bahama Bay's facilities are fantastic. The surroundings are beautiful & spotless.
The Tradewinds pool is lovely with an adjacent beach - complete with hammocks, volleyball, table tennis & comfortable loungers and a pier to a beautiful lake.
We would recommend this condo & Bahama Bay resort without hesitation and hopefully we will return again.
Thank you Melvin.
We had a great time during our stay. Lovely apartment, great location, within easy reach of the parks and other amenities. Publix and Walmart very close, so self catering was easy to organise. Kissimmee rodeo is highly recommended. It's a genuine rodeo, not one that is put on for the tourists, so competitors pay to enter and compete for small cash prizes. Everyone very welcoming, the compere (on horseback), really entertaining, and the boiled peanuts and corn are a must try!
We will definitely consider returning to the apartment for a future visit.
We enjoyed our week here, after a Roadtrip from New York. The apartment is up a flight of stairs which was a slight struggle with the suitcases but we managed!
The rooms are nicely decorated but despite all the warnings in the welcome pack about fees for breaking things there were multiple holes in the mosquito net around the balcony. The owner asked us to make sure the patio door was closed at all times to prevent insects coming in but when the management company visited he said that the holes in the nets would make no difference (we kept the door shut to be safe!). This was the only problem and it meant that I couldn't sit out in the evenings but it's not a huge issue.
The resort was lovely with several quiet pools as well as the two big ones. My sons loved finding wildlife around the site (snakes, geckos) and we're delighted to know that the lakes had alligators in them! The kids splash park is close by which is good if like us you have young kids. You can hear the noise from it on the balcony but not inside.
It was a lovely way to end our road trip and well located for universal / Orlando etc..
My husband, my daughter and I really enjoyed staying at this property. Quite spacious, super clean and cozy.
Though we did not have time to use the amenities and the pool area, we were located right next to it, and we could hear the soothing sound of water which felt very inviting. Only thing is the mattress in the master bedroom seems to be a little worn out, so I had to move to one of the other rooms. The kitchen was very nice, though I could not find any baking pans for my cookies (I ended up using one of the pyrex dishes available).
The staff at the clubhouse are always ready to help. Had quite a few packages shipped there during our stay and deliveries are kept well organised, so the check out process is fast.
Loved the cable tv channel listing! Made our lives so much easier!
I'd like to thank the management team for promptly helping me with the wifi password, which I had trouble finding, even though it was right on the cover of the welcome guest book!
Would definitely stay there again!
