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 Bahamas

The Goodfellow family has vacationed on Grand Bahama for more than 15 years and enjoyed the area and local people so much they 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 they decided to try share their vacation home by renting it out when not in residence. This proved successful and when they decided to build a larger home, they looked for the best beach they could find on the island of Grand Bahama.

They 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."

1st Class Beach House Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This house blow me and my friends away. It is first class all the way. And the ocean views from the rooms are amazing. The beach in your backyard felt like your own private beach because there is no one around. The only down side might be an upside, it is a 30 minute drive to the center of Freeport, to where all the action and people are. If you are looking to get away from the busy then this house will exceed all your expectations.

Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We were extremely pleased with the accommodations as there were 10 of us. The ensuites were perfect and we never felt that we were crowded in any capacity. We ate most of our meals there and the kitchen was perfect for that!

The beach was beautiful and our daily walks when the tide was out was always welcomed.

A Truly Wonderful Experience!!! Had the opportunity to spend a week in this Beautiful Home. After pulling in the driveway, I was captivated. Upon opening the front door, the expanse and utter elegance of this home is truly amazing. Everything one could want to experience, is at your fingertips. The layout of the home is very functional, everything you could need is there. The peacefulness and serenity is there to enjoy. Being out of the immediate town of Freeport, this enables you to enjoy day trips. We experienced the Dolphin Experience at UNEXSC, Garden of the Groves, Lucaynan National Park, just to name a few (and all within a short drive from the home). After day tripping, take to the white sands of the Beach, this truly is your Afternoon Delight. Wouldn’t hesitate to do this again, everyone deserves this experience.

unforgettable beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and looks just like the pictures. We were a group of 10 adults and there was plenty of room for all of us. The beach is gorgeous, and very private. There was no one around all week. We had a small issue with the AC not cooling to temp in some of the bedrooms, and Patricia was very helpful in trying to get the problem solved. There was an island wide power outage when we arrived, so we started a fire in the pit, roasted some hot dogs and enjoyed the evening with flashlights for a few hours until power was restored. No biggie. We ate most meals at home, so we made a few trips to the grocery store. Warning: Food, Gas and most everything on this island is double what you would pay in the states. Be prepared for sticker shock. The island itself is very depressed. The cruise ships only come in a few times a week so the tourist traffic was light. The Port Lucaya market place is fun to walk around, and we did take a snorkeling trip, which was fun. The park right by the house isn't really as great as advertised. The caves are small and the beach is not nearly as pretty as the one right out the back door of the house. If you want a quiet, relaxing week, with no one around, and not a lot of other things to do, this is the place for you. We ate out twice during the week. Once at Bishops, which is close to the house, and very good food, with a pretty beach bar. The other night we went to Tony Macaroni's on Taino Beach. It was a quiet night for tourists, and when we got there he said he had closed up. But when there were going to be 8 of us, he started up the fire, went to the store to buy makings for his Gully Wash drink, and showed us how to get the conch meat out of the shell. Then he cooked up some conch for us! It was the most fun and we were the only ones there. There are some water shoes in the garage for your use, some inflatable rafts, and we left a skim board and a kite there. Take PLENTY of bug spray, because the sand fleas are awful in the dry sand. There was a cat that came to see us every day and night. We are cat lovers, so we bought treats for him, gave him some fresh water, and he snuggled on our laps whenever we went out. This is one of the best beach vacations we have had. Thank you Patricia for making sure we were happy.

Dream Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed one unbelievable week in this private comfortable home. The ocean is but a step away, the lapping sound of the water while you sleep long walks beautiful sunsets, wonderful kitchen, never had to leave only on foot for long walks. Drank much coconut water from the trees right out in the yard.The tikki Hut is such a perfect added feature. I loved my stay and can't wait to come back. We took a dog bear from the humane society to join us for the week and we fell in love. Safe but a secluded island feel. A photographers paradise! Thank you
