About bruce cecil

I am from the UK, married to Anna, with two young children.

We travel to the property at least twice a year and fall in love a little bit more each time.

bruce cecil purchased this villa in 2008

Why bruce cecil chose Freeport

We rented this property in 2008 and thought it was the perfect place for a family holiday. We then found it was for sale and deciced to buy it! We love the combination of luxury accomodation and a relaxed pace of life. It feels secluded but safe and is not far from many, varied activities and fun places to visit when we want to.

What makes this villa unique

We have a list of people who want to buy the place because of it's fantastic location - the property is in a small gated development and has the best position - right on the beach. We love that we can sit on the deck and sip cool drinks and watch our kids playing on the beach, just steps away. When you walk into the property the first time the view of the turquoise ocean through the wall to ceiling glazing in the lounge will take your breath away.

If you can tear yourself away then there are plenty of things to do on the island, including scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming with dolphins, fishing, dining at one of the many restaurants and bars in Lucaya, wandering through the Straw Market, playing golf.

A 'must do' is to go to the Fish Fry at nearby Taino Beach on a Wednesday evening, where you can let your hair down, dance with the locals, if you feel the rythm, and enjoy freshly cooked fish, rice'n'peas, while you watch the sun go down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bruce,



My husband and I had a wonderful, restful time at "Paradise". It was simple the best vacation we have ever had. Andrew was great and we got a chance to catch our breath from a very busy year in ministry in Atlanta.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Great home on a stunning beach with warm water, endless blue sky, sandbars, and reefs with incredible snorkeling. The house has a great outdoor area in the back with lots of comfortable seating, a nice grill, and amazing view.

Andrew the caretaker is a very nice guy who can and will get anything done for you that you might need.

Highly recommended.

Five-star accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised to see the house looked exactly like the videos . The house was very clean and the amenities are plentiful . Andrew the caretaker was there when we needed him and provided us with a lot of information about the island . The beach was beautiful but you do need water shoes ,but a few feet down the beach the sand was nice and smooth . The Wednesday fish fry is something we do not want to miss music, food, and dancing . Over all this was one of our best vacations . I would definitely recommend this property to people who love the beach .

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Freeport before and knew what we were looking for. Twice we had stayed at resorts and this was our third home away rental. We knew we wanted a house on the beach away from the resorts. We wanted peace and quiet and a place where our three kids could run around outside and play all day. Andrew met us at the airport and as we drove to the house we were getting excited, the house was close to everything yet secluded enough away from the masses. As we walked in the house it hit us, we had finally found the perfect vacation spot. The view from any room out to the beach is perfect and the porch is fabulous. We spent as much time as we could on the porch and ate almost all of our home cooked meals there. The feeling we had from day one walking into that house never left us and before we even left the island we were emailing the Cecil’s to rebook for next year.

Andrew is wonderful and is full of knowledge and connections. The house and kitchen had everything I could think of needing. If you had to you could walk to restaurants on the beach but your far enough away that people are not crowding your beach front. The sand bar just down from the house was the perfect place for our kids to play football and then grab a bite to eat.

265 days and counting until we are back in paradise!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Bruce,

Thank you for allowing my family to stay at your wonderful villa in Fortune Beach. The experience from the airport pickup to first arrival at the villa was more than expected. The view from the back of the villa is stunning. There is an amazing sand bar up the beach from the villa in front of the restaurant that is really picturesque.

We happened to be there on a day where the tide was at its lowest and you could literally walk the sand bar starting a tiny bit up from the villa to the rocky point all the way up the beach without the water passing your knees. If you plan to venture out of the villa you will definitely need a rental car. Navigating the island is simple as it took us only a day or two to know the major areas of the entire island. If you are there on Wednesday definitely check out the fish fry at Taino Beach. All in all amazing property. Thank you one last time Bruce.

Car: recommended

A great place for friends or family to escape too. Freeport has everything, within easy travelling distance, but the location of this large cottage is fantastic private and quiet. Right on the nearly private beach, away from the hotels but fenced to protect young children, shallow warm Ocean at the bottom of the garden, but with the advantage of a swimming pool and tennis court. Plus casino Golf courses diving horse riding all within 10 minutes. So whether you are looking to toally escape or want the fun of nearby attractions you have everything with this beautiful romantic property.

Other Activities: Dolphin experience
