THE NEIGHBORHOOD

OVERVIEW

Our neighborhood is called Port Royal, which is an association composed of approximately 50 single family homes of people who love the ocean and everything it has to offer. Bimini has two islands: north and south Bimini, and they are very different from each other. South Bimini is a laid back island specially chosen by fisherman, divers, beach and pool lovers, sports bar and restaurants are available too. Here you can find kayak rentals, fishing, diving and snorkel charters. Beach combing on white sand beaches with crystal clear turquoise water is part of the amenities. While north Bimini has casinos, discos, clubs, bars and restaurants. Both islands are great in their own way, but in our South Bimini house you are going to find Island Charm and luxurious amenities with the privacy of your own home.

GETTING AROUND

From the airport to the house you can take a taxi for $5 per person. South Bimini is only 3 miles long. The house has 8 complementary bicycles available for its guest’s enjoyment. If you want to visit North Bimini, you can ride your bike to the water taxi. For $2 they will take you and your bike across. There are also golf cart rentals on either island available. You can take a bus to move through the island as well. If you want to dive or snorkel there is a dive operation at the end of the street. There are also fishing charters available for half or full day on north and south Bimini.

Perfect Island Gettaway

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that Vinnie and Erika are amazing and put together a fabulous product. They should teach customer service to other VRBO members.

I was personally there from June 14th to June 30th with three different groups of people. We ranged from leisure crusing and snorkling to intense fishing. This house foot the bill for a wide range of activities and diverse groups of people with different interests.

I would reccomend this house to anyone who has a family or is looking for a good homebase for some hardcore fishing

The stewards of the house were very friendly and accomodating. They worked in unison with Vinnie and Erika and made the trip that much more enjoyable.

I have stayed in others area's around Bimini and this is number 1 by far.

Thank you Vinnie and Erika,

Kenny

Stay in Bimini

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, my second time to stay, always clean and well appointed. I would definitely recommend the house. The owners are great to work with and very accommodating. They have good knowledge and relationships with the locals and the local places to eat, visit, etc. So they are very helpful when you aren't sure about where to go and who to deal with when on the island.

Best rental in Bimini

  • 5 of 5

My first fishing trip to Bimini was a huge success because of Vinnie and Erika's willingness to help us navigate (literally since we went by boat) all the details we would confront arriving by boat in Bimini. Their house was awesome. Massive, easily accessible boat dock, not to mention the impressive home they have just minutes from major fishing spots in Bimini. The home literally looks like the pictures on line, couldn't have been better. I would recommend this home to anyone who loves to fish or simply to anyone who loves great accommodations. The home is just as good for a family outing as it is for a fishing outing. Actually, for us fishermen, its the best accommodations I have ever experienced.

PERFECT ISLAND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

Vinnie was very helpful with responding to all my inquries before, during, and even after our stay. Port Royale is our favorite place to stay on South Bimini and Vinnie's house is by far the nicest one for rent on VRBO! I highly reccomend his house to anyone looking for a house for rent. Comes with everything you could image plus more! The bikes are perfect for riding to the beach or riding to the beach club for dinner at Mackey's! If you like to cook, the kitchen comes complete with all needed supplies. Views from the top deck are amazing, truly cant think of 1 bad thing to say. Marvin and Paulet clean and watch over the house for Vinnie and both are super friendly and will help you with anything you need. We will be back for sure and am already having the bimini blues!

Amazing Trip

  • 5 of 5

This weekend a group of us had the pleasure to fish Bimini and stay at Vinnie's place. What an amazing home, and the perfect getaway!

As for the house, we couldn't have asked for a better arrangement. Pulling up dock, we were blown away. The place looks as good or better than you see in the pictures. It is very well maintained, and the care that goes into it shows immediately... the same cannot be said for many of the homes over there.

There was tons of dock space, and even with nearly 70ft of boats tied up, we still could have fit another 25 - 30ft CC alongside. The interior was totally decked out, CLEAN, and a perfect setup for a large group of fisherman or vacationers. There is a great bar setup, a spacious living room and dining area, a gourmet kitchen, a large bedroom downstairs, another room with 4 bunks, and a massive master upstairs with a kitchenette, shower, and jacuzzi tub. Even with 10 people in the house, we never felt cramped or lacking space to move around. Everything we needed for cooking, grilling, etc. was all there waiting for us. Plenty of time was spent just hanging around, and this is a great home to come relax and unwind with family and friends, even if fishing is not on the agenda.

Outside, the multi-level deck area was HUGE and had tons of seating. We could have run laps around the house, and each side had nice views of Bimini. The bikes in the garage were a plus, as we used them to travel around town, and the freezers downstairs were the perfect place to keep our baits in good shape for another day fishing.

Vinnie uses the services of several locals who help maintain the house and are available to answer any questions and address any issues. While everything there was flawless, it was nice to know we had folks in Bimini who would take care of us should any problems arise.

Before we arrived, Vinnie spent quite a bit of time walking us through the ins and outs of the home, providing tips and pointers about the island, check-in, etc., and went to great lengths to ensure we had the best trip possible.

Overall, Vinnie puts together a hell of a product, and he stands behind it. When debating the various options Bimini had to offer, including hotels, private rentals, etc., it would be wise to check this one out. For the money, the experience, and the opportunity to have your entire group together in such a great atmosphere, it can't be beat.

Thanks Vinnie for making this process effortless...
