Originally from upstate NY. Purchased this property recently for a place my family can visit and somewhere eventually I can stay for a couple months of the year.
Jamie purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Jamie chose Port Royal
I have been looking for years for a spot that I could just relax and enjoy the water. I've traveled from Honduras to the eastern Caribbean chain looking for a spot to call my own and finally found everything I wanted here.
What makes this Cottage unique
South Bimini is unique with the old charm of Bahamas but in fifteen minutes you can be at a casino, swim up bar, or fine restaurant eating sushi. Sport fishing, diving, snorkeling is all within your reach. Unless you just want relax on the porch with a cold beverage watching the fish swim by.

Better than I had hoped for.
This cottage was clean, adorable, and fully stocked with anything you could want. Tons of towels, sheets, cooking utensils. It even has a washer and dryer, which was a pleasant surprise. Two air conditioners that worked great, but we found we didn't even need them much with the breeze. There was hi-speed wi-fi. There was even Netflix on the tv! South Bimini is peaceful and quiet. I found the North island a great place to visit and eat, but not where I would want to stay. The beach was only a five minute walk away from the cottage and always secluded. There's not much for food on the South Island. Sands resort has a place, there's a burger place near the ferry and a small store. Bring as many groceries as you can. Everybody on the island was very friendly and helpful. We went fishing with a neighbor, snorkeling with another. Make sure to take a trip out to Honeymoon Harbor to feed and swim with the rays. Contact Brown, I put his # in the guest book. Overall, very happy with our stay. Jamie (the owner) was always quick to answer any questions I had and very helpful.
Thank you for the kind words, it sounds like you had a great time. Thank you for staying with us. Hope to have you again real soon!
Love it!!! A Serene beautiful peaceful retreat
Couldn't actually stay in the house.
Jamie's house is very cute, clean and the dock is great. However, we couldn't stay in the house due to the air conditioning being out. Jamie had told us prior that the central AC was broken but a window unit had been installed. We were okay with that however when we arrived and tried the window AC, it too was broken. We called Jamie and he did everything he could to help us, but being in NY and not in Bimini, there was just so much he could do. He has to rely on the help/kindness of his neighbors as there is no property manager if an issue arises. Long story short, after waiting around for a few hours (which was a bummer), the next door neighbor Kenny and Pauline saved the day. They live on the island and rent the 2/2 blue house that shares the dock with Jamie's house. They said we could stay in there for the 4 nights, as they had a last minute cancellation. They didn't even charge us more, just what we paid Jamie even though the house was much bigger. It was amazing! Their house is wonderful, so clean and had everything you could ever need. Plus Kenny and Pauline are there if you need them, which as you can see from our adventure is a huge plus! Overall Jamie's house would have been just fine if in working order, however consider this your cautionary tale, not sure where we would have ended up if Kenny and Pauline hadn't stepped in.
It was very unfortunate the AC unit was working until moments before you arrived. I went in after you left and repaired the AC. I did have to call and work out a deal with my neighbors for you to stay there and paid them on your behalf. That is the great part about my neighbors we always work together to make sure everyone is taken care of. Sorry you had to wait for the situation to be resolved. I would be happy to make it up to you.
Very nice place. Very clean and well kept up
Would definitely stay here again. Nice house with plenty of room for 4 people. The mosquitos will carry you away but that's any island. Very quite and peaceful. Need to rent a golf cart to be able to see the island.
Cozy House with a Great View!
Jamie was so responsive and accommodating. The house was great, with a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen stocked with all the utensils you'd need. The house is also walking distance from several beaches where you can search for shells, watch the fish, and look for starfish. I spent every morning eating breakfast and watching the fish (and some sharks!) swim by the dock. I'll definitely be back to both Bimini and this property!
The place was absolutely everything we needed. Nice dock, nice beads and good cool A/C. If you have a boat that is a good way to get around but if you can rent a golf cart even better...........Went to two of the local bars and had a great time with locals and visitor.............local were all nice and helpful. Would bring drinking water........they have a soft water system and while it is safe to drink not so tasty..........also paper goods need to be brought in. Lots of condiments and spices.........THANKS so much for the coffee and coffee filters......
Bimini is known for its gorgeous waters, adventurous past, and big game fishing.
