Make a holiday rental property or lodging in the Bahamas your home away from home

The Bahamas are a sun drenched, archipelago if over 700 islands in the clearest water in the world. With over 700 islands or cays to choose from, all of which offer a vast range of world-class activities, beaches and places to sit and relax, you would need to live in a holiday rental property in the Bahamas for many, many years before you have experiences everything that these little, character filled islands have to offer. Throughout the year, the Bahamas are filled with colour and music, making it one of the finest places in the world to holiday.

Things to do on a Bahamas holiday

Scuba diving in the Bahamas is serious business. By taking Bahamas lodging, you have automatically given yourself the opportunity to dive on 14.5% of the world’s coral reefs, including the world’s third longest barrier. You can swim with dolphins, sharks, stingrays and a plethora of tropical fish when scuba diving in the Bahamas, the only difficulty will be in trying to choose which dive to do, whether to visit a coral reef, cave, shipwreck or deep blue hole. Once you have seen a selection of marine life, head ashore to your Bahamas lodging and set about trying to spot some of the 28 bird species unique to the Bahamas.

The warm seas of the Bahamas are perfect for sailing. Fishing holidays to the Bahamas thrive, as the warm Caribbean waters are teeming with trophy fish of many species which have grown to huge proportions due to the rich feeding grounds. Even if you do not visit the Bahamas for fishing, sailing around the islands is a wonderful experience, dropping anchor in a secluded bay or on an uninhabited cay, diving into the water or taking an exploratory party ashore to investigate your own little part of paradise for the day. With average water temperatures of 26°C, every water sport is a pleasure, from windsurfing to snorkelling.

Of course, no one has ever taken a holiday rental property in the Bahamas without spending a few hours on the fabulous beaches. There are too many to mention, and with the incredible quality of each, it would be unfair to pick a favourite, but you can be assured; if you take a Bahamas villa, you will be more than satisfied with the powder soft, white sand beach closest to your accommodation, and the scenery which surrounds it.

You can even find a round of golf from Bahamas lodging, with spectacular, wide golf courses in four of the main islands of the Bahamas, Abacos, Exumas, Grand Bahama and Providence Island.

Places to go on a Bahamas holiday

Nassau and Paradise Island are closely connected neighbouring islands, which share an international resort feel, yet with both, it is the laid back, tropical atmosphere which is the most attractive aspect. Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas, and a perfect place to take accommodation in the Bahamas for an island hopping tour, or if it is your first time to these island paradises.

Grand Bahama Island is a magical place. The many ecological wonders combined with the many sport and leisure options make Grand Bahama a favourite destination for family holidays to the Bahamas.

Eleuthera and Harbour Island are very long, thin, islands, which are a beach lovers paradise, and for those hoping to go sailing from a Bahamas property, Abaco is your destination!

Climate in the Bahamas

The Bahamas is one of the few true year round destinations. There are almost constant sea breezes, which take the sting out of the heat of summer (July and August), bit season variations are slight.

Travel to the Bahamas

In order to reach your lodging in the Bahamas, you must first get to Miami (MIA), which is easy enough due to British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, who run services direct fromLondonHeathrow (LHR). You then have many options; a flight to Nassau (NAS), Freeport (FPO) or the Out Islands, or take a cruise ship to any of the major ports in the Bahamas.

My only point is bring an eye mask as the curtains are linen and the sun comes through in the morning and wakes you up, but we didn't mind being woken up by sunshine. The photo is a bit misleading as it thought we were right on the beach but the outside of the house is actually on the rocks but don't let that out you off as the view is still amazing. If you get the chance fly to staneil cay and do the tour to the swimming pigs and compass cay. Don't go from George Town which others made the mistake of doing as you in have a long boat ride if you do. Thank you Milly for letting us stay in your home

Transport is definitely required as nothing is within walking distance, except the sea of course! We were fortunate to have Earnest as our driver/guide and friend and spent some wonderful times with both him and his wife exploring the Island. The Island is beautiful, relaxing and unspoilt, not a destination for those looking for the usual tourist traps. Although we do suggest arming yourselves with plenty of insect repellent as my poor husband suffered quite badly with bites, not me for some reason? We also didn't realise that the sun sets quite early, around 5.30 in the evening, I don't know why but we expected longer days, lack of research on our part! We visited the Columbus Monument and The Caves with Mr Cartwright, who explained their history and gave us a great tour for only $10! We enjoyed Conch Salad which was freshly prepared by Ken at Seaside, he pulled the Conch straight from the sea and we watched him prepare it! Amazing.
