“Personal Touch Makes Bahamas Stay Memorable”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have rented several VRBO homes and apartments but we have never encountered an owner who was so helpful and attentive. Ricardo met us at the house and showed us around. He drove us to the airport on our last day. Ricardo let our kids (age 8, 7 and 2) feed their chickens, which they raise on their half of the backyard. Ricardo and his wife let us use their car, which was a very big help getting around Grand Bahamas Island. The car is old, but runs well. A lot of people we bumped into thought we were locals and I think it was because of the car. I know we got to see a lot more than other people we met who were shuttled from their resorts to their various destinations.

The house is a duplex with owners (Ricardo and Susan) sharing the other side of the house. The house was spacious, clean, and well-equipped. Very well equipped and comfortable for our family of five. Ricardo and Susan have a closet full of beach toys for use. The location is a little out of town and certainly not on a beach (if that's what you're looking for), but it easily accessible to the main town (Freeport), various beaches and other destinations with short drives that are usually less than 10 minutes. Certainly the house is very convenient to most beautiful beaches which are out on the West side of the island.

The house has all the usual amenities, a nice collection of DVD's for viewing, WIFI, cable TV (if you want to spend time on those things), and of course air-conditioning. Susan was out of town the week we were there, so we didn't avail ourselves of them cooking a meal for us or one of Susan's therapeutic massages.

Overall the house is clean and simple and inexpensive. It's a little out of the way but everything you might want to do in the Bahamas. The owners add personal touches and make you feel very welcome, which is what really makes trips and places memorable. Staying at Susan and Ricardo's place is a wonderful way to see Grand Bahamas island.

“There was no better place to be during "Hurricane Sandy"”

Thanks to Ricardo and Susan our vacation during the week of "hurrican Sandy" was quite the adventure. We were very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, spaciousness, and comfort of the house. Thank goodness for the gas stove which enabled us to warm up food despite the four day power outage. We felt very safe and secure and given the location of the home on "higher land' vs. the other end of the Island we received no flooding. With the use of the car we were able to explore the Island and with a beach just down the road we were thrilled to take in a "moonlit" walk on the pristine white sands. Ricardo and Susan were the most amazing hosts helping us with any questions we had and there to offer us help in the "unique" situation we encountered. If you have a chance ask Susan if she would be willing to be your Private Chef as she is an amazing cook. Susan and Ricardo went so beyond what you could imagine or expect from another owner managed rental property, the personal touch of having the owners living next door made the difference between what would have been a complete loss to a great adventure and the start of a great friendship. We will be back for sure! Cheers to Susan and Ricardo! Sandra and Troy, Ontario, Canada

Thank you Sandra and Troy! You were wonderful guests and we appreciated your sense of adventure during a difficult circumstance that we had no control over. You made the terrible weather enjoyable for us as well. We do look forward to your return, and with the kids hopefully!
