Whether you are looking for a comfortable home base for your adventure-filled vacation, a romantic location for your wedding or or simply a relaxing worry free holiday in the sun, 'Tranquil Breezes' will become your favorite place on earth.

This home is located just a quick 4 minute drive from the Lucayan National park. Great swimming area, sandy beach and shallow, calm waters. Colourful local restaurants, or 30 minute drive to Freeport & Lucaya for casinos, night life and markets (including the famous 'straw market').

About Lesley/Alison

Hello, my wife and I have travelled with our children to various islands in the Caribbean, but we felt most at home on Grand Bahama Island. I have a contracting company in Ontario Canada and had been searching for the right property on which to build our vacation home.

Lesley/Alison purchased this house in 2003

Why Lesley/Alison chose East Grand Bahama

The Goodfellow family has vacationed on Grand Bahama for more than 15 years and enjoyed the area and local people so much that we built a home on Pelican Point in the late 1990's.

The demands of the construction industry in Canada kept the Goodfellow family in the North a great deal of time and we decided to try share our vacation home by renting it out when not in residence. This proved successful and when we decided to build a larger home, we looked for the best beach we could find on the island of Grand Bahama.

We located a large lot on Golden Beach and in 2003 completed work on this current home near Freetown.

What makes this house unique

From the spacious luxury of the interior to the whisper of the ocean out in front, this feels like our little slice of heaven on earth.

It's a great place for a family get-together or a small wedding and we can recommend photographers, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our stay was, as before, perfectly wonderful. The accommodations are so well-planned for a group, and the weather, and even the airlines, all cooperated beautifully.

Stepping in the front door, even after several stays, is always a delightful surprise---every bit as good as you remember.

The new porch furniture is perfect. It is our hope to be able to return next year."

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was absolutely perfect! My family and I had the absolute best time. From the beautiful, private beach to the spacious house we couldn't have imagined the property any better. From the moment we booked the house the owners made everything so easy to ensure we had a great stay.

If you are looking for a relaxing trip with friends and family, this is definitely where you should stay!!

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The beach is incredible! At low tide its just amazing, and walking out the door to this giant beach is wonderful! The outdoor hut is great because there is always a little shade for the kids to play in the sand.

The house is so clean and functional for the whole family! There is a great screened in porch which is great for eating and reading. We also felt nice and safe having a security system. We're already booking a return stay! Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and are excited that you have decided to come back. We love low tide too, when large silky sand bars appear. We enjoy walking all the way down the beach, from one to the next, in and out of the shallow water.

Luxurious Home-Great Owner and Managers-Beautiful Beach-Fantastic People and Great Island

  • 5 of 5

From the first meeting with Patricia to check-out was one of the most fulfilling vacations I have ever taken.The house is to die for with a fit for king master bedroom suite and of course that majestic view and access to a most fabulous beach.This is not to mention the other four excellent bedrooms and in suite bathrooms.Just a fantastic property.Don't be fooled about the island being small, there are many things to do. We attended a festival and even won a first and third prize metal for peeling onions how great is that.We also attended the Wednesday nite fish fry and party at Smith's Point which is a do not miss.We enjoyed the Lucayan National Park and drove from one end to the other stopping at whatever interested us.New experiences definitely.Tried conch, an island delicacy. I enjoyed the conch salad but really found myself ordering conch chowder everyplace that we went.It is great if you like chowder.Bahama Mama out of a coconut the list goes on and on.The Lucayan Market Place is colorful fun and entertaining.Marketplace consists of locals selling their homemade wares or souvenir type merchandise.There are numerous restaurants and cafes.The food is good and varied . You will be able to find just about any type food here. We also arranged a reef fishing trip here with Neville. He and his crew are great really great.Entertaining and very adept at their trade. Ask for Neville and tell him Jerry referred you. He will get a kick out of that.

Did I mention the weather was not cooperative at all. We enjoyed two days of sunshine and the rest windy and rain or cloudy.We accomplished all of these expeditions nonetheless and still a great time.The water and beach are to die for as I mentioned earlier.The powder sand is warm and feels good between your toes.The water is warm and inviting and sitting in the evening listening to the waves simply magnificent.Not enough can be said about the property. Enclosed lanai on each side of the house.Wall of windows looking out to the beautiful blue ocean.Coconut and Palm trees galore. Did I mention the crabs.If not they are really interesting to watch as well.From digging holes and burying themselves in the sand to running across the lawn.Just be mindful of the pinschers.

A bit of a shock were prices at the grocery stores.Just be prepared for a bit of sticker shock. Some items were cheaper than in the states others were three to four times as much. Shop conservatively and enjoy the culture

Owner's Response: Wow, it sounds like you really enjoyed the island and all it has to offer. Thank you for the great review and all of the helpful tips. We are so glad that you enjoyed the house and the beach, and made many great memories, both there and on many of the adventures that you had. Yes, some things at the grocery stores are a bit more pricey, but we have found that the staples, along with cheese, chicken and other meats seem to be comparable.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay here and both times were amazing! This house is the perfect place to get away, relax and have a good time. Everyone is super friendly and very welcoming! If you wanna get away from it all, this is the place. The private beach is great and has a great sand bar at low tide that is just picturesque, can’t be beat! We have recommended this place to many friends and will continue to do so! We will be back!

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Beach is amazing, just like the pictures. Reef about 100’ off shore with angle fish and parrot fish. We had visits by rays each day at high tide. House is beautiful, each of the five bedrooms has its own bathroom. Set up is great, go from pier or airport to grocery store and then Grand Bahama highway to the house. Very easy.

Owner's Response: Hey thanks for the details about the reef! We are at the house for a visit now and are going snorkelling tomorrow to check it out - so exciting! (We have lots of family with us and really love the privacy the bedroom suites also.)

Simply SPECTACULAR!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently returned from taking our family on a week long vacation here and what an experience it was. We weren't sure what to expect having never vacationed here before but the Goodfellow's were very great to deal with. From the initial contact we had to the end, I cant think of one detail which was left out. The directions from airport to the house were excellent considering we had never been to the island before, facing the challenge of driving on the wrong side (left) of the road and it was roughly 35 mins away.

Patricia met us at the home and gave us a very thorough rundown of things and even mentioned the Conch Cracking Festival they had going on in Mcleans Town that Monday. That was very interesting to take in!! My family and I felt like we definitely got a piece of Bahamian culture there which we will never forget. I would also highly recommend a kayak tour through Lucayan National Park and Paradise Cover. The snorkeling we did there is some of the best I have ever done!! Although the home is a good distance away the activities in Freeport , no one really minded just hanging on the beach all day and taking in the million dollar views and having the beach to ourselves....we only saw 2 people all week, Bob and his dog Cookie. It was definitely a week my family and I will never forget!!

The only thing I will reiterate from the reviews I read prior to going is take bug spray. They are really bad at night.

Owner's Response: Hi! We are so glad you got the full Grand Bahama experience and truly enjoyed your time. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us! Yes, tropical locales do have sand flies, mostly just at dawn or dusk, so we have screened in two porches so you can still enjoy the outdoors at those times. We also leave bug spray for our guests in the closet, for those who are sensitive. That's great that you were able to go to McLean's Town! It is one of our favourites and we really enjoy a private buffet supplied by one of the locals there. Sounds like you had a really great time. We'd love to have you come back again; and take advantage of our special repeat guest discount.
