Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our newly refurbished condo is located in the beautiful Bahama Bay resort on Lake Davenport. The lush grounds are immaculate and are 24 hour guarded and gated. Rated 4 stars. One of the nicest locations in Central Florida, Bahama Bay is great for both families and adults wishing to have the space and comfort of a vacation home and still being within 10 – 15 minutes drive to Disney World. The resort and all its amenities provides a holiday in itself whether you choose to go to the theme parks or not. The resort offers beautiful, well kept grounds, private white sand beach, 4 heated swimming pools, 6 hot tubs, huge children’s splash pad, barbecues, beach volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, great walking trail around ponds, and tennis courts. Check out our photos and the video links to see!

There is a 17,000 square foot clubhouse with full service spa and salon. There's a bar and grill close to our unit, a fitness facility, public computers, DVD rental and children’s games room. There is free Wi-fi access within the condo and at the clubhouse and pool area. The unit is very quiet as it overlooks a nature preserve and a bit of the lake. Many have said they really enjoy having their morning coffee overlooking the solitude of the nature preserve and the lake and seeing all the wildlife. Take a look at the resort map photo – we’re building #17 by the lake and close (but not too close) to the best pool in the complex.

Our 1,227 square foot unit is on the 2nd floor and has two small patios. We bought new living room furniture and installed a new air conditioning unit in 2017. There are two larger bedrooms, one with a new king bed (best bed we ever slept in) and a queen in the other. One has an attached bathroom and patio/balcony. The 3rd bedroom has two twin sized beds. For additional needs there is a pack and play and a pull out couch. There's a 50 inch flat screen tv in the living room and 32 inch flat screen TV's in all three bedrooms. Sleeps 6 – 8 comfortably. We have in-unit laundry facilities.We've left a number of items you might like to use - Kids pool toys and some games, a set of golf clubs, and fishing rods (license required). We've decorated like we would at home and have all the kitchen accessories you might need.

Bahama Bay condos are privately owned, managed as a resort by a professional management company. Other than cleaning at departure, maid service is also available at any time for an additional fee. Inside the condo you’ll find bed linens, towels, dishes, cooking utensils, etc.

About Ken Kirton

We fell in love with Bahama Bay and hope to be able to spend more time there – one day! Right now, one of us is retired and one of us is still working (sigh) and we can’t be there as much as we would like to be. We decided we would like to share our beautiful getaway spot with others. We live in the coldest major city in North America and find ourselves daydreaming about Bahama Bay all the time!

We have high standards and work to continually improve our unit by purchasing new items, adding to the decor and making our 2nd home feel like home to others.

Ken Kirton purchased this condo in 2011

Why Ken Kirton chose Bahama Bay

We believe this is the nicest resort in Orlando. We looked at property listings for over a year, went to Orlando and spent two weeks looking at over 30 properties. We fell in love with the Bahama Bay complex and decided it was the right place for us - a good balance of things to do on-site in a beautiful well kept setting, away from all major roads, on the lake, a feeling of seclusion away from the theme parks and close enough to everything you need.

What makes this condo unique

The unit is large enough to feel very comfortable. Two couples (and family) can go and have seclusion as the large master bedrooms are separated from each other. Each couple can have coffee on separate balconies. We upgraded with new living room furniture and have lots of plans for the future.

Our condo was very nice and had everything we needed. Beautiful grounds, clean and great service.

  • 5 of 5

Our family with two little children thoroughly enjoyed Bahama Bay. It was close to Disney, everything was clean and the splash pad, pools and hot tubs were perfect.

Great resort, away from the main Orlando area!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo at Bahama Bay Resorts! Here are some highlights and comments:

- 2nd floor unit, no elevator that I can see

- Well stocked with all the cookware you need. They did provide a very small container of dish washing liquid, one packet of dishwasher detergent, one sample sized coffee grounds, and small toiletries, one roll of paper towels and toilet paper. We did come prepared with all our own extras.

- The unit is close to the pool, small man made sand beach, restaurant and fishing pier.

- Lots of activities for all ages. Splash pad for little ones, tennis courts, basketball court, sand volleyball, short (<1 mile) hiking trail, multiple hot tubs and pools, pool tables, ping pong, etc.

- The resort is away from the main congestion but you do need to drive through a lot of Orlando traffic. We were here during Spring Break so it was very slow going. Tip: when coming off I-4, take Formosa Garden to Funie Steed and you can bypass some traffic on 192.

- The owner was quick to respond when reserving and provided lots of nice information and tips.

- We did have one unfortunate incident where water was leaking from the ceiling into one bedroom. We called the front desk and maintenance came immediately, and found it was coming from the upstairs unit. They fixed it and brought in fans to dry out the carpet. It wasn’t an inconvenience since we were gone all day anyways.

- Washer and dryer in the unit is always very helpful!!

- Two nice screened-in patios, one from the master bedroom, one from the living room.

- Restaurant on the premises was a nice convenience and prices were reasonable. We sat next to the pool in the screened area.

- Plenty of parking

- The dining area is fairly small, especially for a 3 bedroom unit. And it is sort of in the main walkway. There is a kitchen bar/counter that 2 people can eat at.

- I did see an infant swing, golf clubs, box fan in the closet.

- The air conditioning was very efficient and cooled the unit very quickly.

- Beds were very comfortable!

- Warning for Tmbl customers…we had virtually no signal on the resort. In all of Orlando area it is sketchy at best, so be forewarned! A few texts snuck through late in the evening, but otherwise, nothing! The wifi in the unit is strong, however, so we did rely on the laptop we brought for emails and searching internet.

- If you want to eat out and want to avoid the mess on 192, go up Rt 27 instead.

Overall very comfortable for the price

  • 3 of 5

This is a very nice condo, and we enjoyed our stay in Orlando in spite of the chilly temperatures during our visit, but unfortunately when we arrived at 9pm on the night of check-in, we were given a key to the condo, but the condo was left just as the last renters before us had left it. It had not been cleaned. We were given another condo for the night, though it was not nearly as comfortable. The inconvenience of moving all of our bags while trying to get an early start at the parks was unfortunate. Eventually we were partially compensated, but only after we took the time to plead our case. The condo was very roomy and comfortable once we got settled in, but the kitchen is bare bones. Not much in the way of hospitality. The flip side is that Ken, the owner, was extremely helpful as far as helping us get prepared for our trip, and he was easy to get in touch with when we needed help resolving the situation. The condo was extremely affordable and the 20 minute drive to the parks is manageable considering the savings.

Owner's Response: This is the first time in our 7 years of owning the condo that the unit had not been cleaned between guests. A rare mistake by the resort management. We provided a $100 refund to try to appease and the resort provided a gift card to the on-site restaurant. We're very surprised at the comment about the kitchen. Here's other comments we've received in the past: "unit equipped with everything we needed and more", "everything we needed as far as kitchen utensils were available", "well equipped kitchen", "kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes / pans you need. We are foodies and pride ourselves on having all the utensils one would need and will be following up with this guest to ask specifically what they thought was missing so we can address.

Vacation with grandkids

  • 4 of 5

Resort is great.....something for everyone. Pools are great....sand area, fishing playground, pool table, ping pong.

Only issue we had was with maintenance.

Had issue with frig and although they said they would come....took till next day. They made it worse and didn't come back that day. Water would have been in the carpet and ruined the furniture had we not been proactively putting towels down. Some issue require prompt attention.

Owner's Response: Its unfortunate Maintenance didn't respond in a timely manner - that's very unusual as they normally are very responsive. It turned out the water line for the ice maker became loose as it entered the fridge and was hard to diagnose. It was fixed right after you brought it to our attention. Glad you enjoyed Bahama Bay like we do!
