About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleep 7 comfortably

This very well built home has a tranquil feeling.Great architectural detail, from the African Mahogany entry doors to the travertine floors and granite counters. As soon as you enter you feel as if you are a part of the ocean itself. The huge windows and sliding glass doors allows endless views of the ocean, in all its splendor. The house itself was designed to take advantage of the tranquil benefits of the ocean, but the interior also gives you the Tommy Bahama feel.

The home has all you need to make your vacation easy and complete. It has all appliances from a food processor, high end blender, microwave to many wine openers. It has blow dryers, straighteners anything extra that you would not want to have to pack. It has a beautiful gas stove and also has a large grill on the 60 foot back porch, to grill if you should so desire.

There are two identical large master suites at each end of the home, each with,large walk in marble showers and each has there own 16 jet 2 person Jacuzzi tub, along with his and her vanities.Each suite has a slider that opens on to the rear porch, with endless views of the Atlantic ocean.

The third room is spacious and has a guest bathroom, complete with a full shower.

The gourmet kitchen is great for entertaining, with a large granite counter top that seats 8 easily. It has refrigerator and also a drink refrigerator to stock your sodas and beers.

The family room has large screen tv, two leather couches, wall unit, and coffee table from Indonesia. Very inviting and comfortable.

It also has a full washer and dryer.

The back porch is where a glass of wine to watch the sunset is a must. Plenty of out door furniture along with a dining table and six chairs are in this 60 foot screened in back porch. We screened it in so no insects would ruin your outdoor experience. The back porch also has outdoor speakers with siruis satelite, so you can choose your music for your mood.

We have one of the most beautiful coral reefs in our back yard. Just put on your snorkeling gear (We have lots of extra if you dont bring your own) and swim out to see a magnificent aquarium. The private beach itself is great for long walks. If you like to fish we have people who would take you fishing if you dont have your own boat. If you do have your own boat we have dockage available for an extra fee, within walking distance.Maid sevrice is available for your household needs and a local Bahamian chef can be arranged if you desire a night off. We are in walking distance to a great local Bahamian restaurant that cannot be missed.. Also you can experience true Bahamian living by driving into the West End Village (The oldest settlement on Grand Bahama) and experience the charming restaurants or you could drive or have a taxi take you 10 mins away to Old Bahama Bay for fine entertaining and other restaurants. You could also rent a car in the immediate area and drive 30 mins away to try your gambling luck in Lucaya where there is a casino and plenty of dining and dancing.

About Kevin and Diane Floyd

We have always dreamed to have an island home and found a beautiful piece of property on an expansive private beach in a quaint Bahamian village. We spent 4 years traveling to and from the Bahamas in our own boat bringing building materials and supplies to create our beautiful dream home in the Bahamas. Much blood ,sweat and love went into the home. After the last four years of enjoying the home on a consistent basis we decided to start renting it this year. Now that the children have left we seem to be not using it as much and have decided to let others enjoy it.

Why Kevin and Diane Floyd chose West Grand Bahama

If you are looking for privacy and to be able to walk on a deserted beach for five miles and not see a soul this is the place for you. Once you enter the house you have a panoramic view of the ocean. The tranquil feeling is over whelming.

What makes this house unique

Experience true Bahamian living. No hussle and bussle yet close enough to do all the commercial stuff if you want to.

Fabulous time in Bootle Bay

  • 5 of 5

This was a most fantastic house and the accomodations perfect. Eric was very congenial and helpful. The bread he delivered was fantastic. We relaxed, read, and ate at a couple of the local restaurants. The weather was perfect and when it rained, the screened porch kept us dry. The scenic view from the porch and ocean were great.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, had the pleasure of staying at this rental property. The description does not do it justice. The property is outstanding. The two master suites are identical and beautiful. Every thing that you could possible need is provided. The owners have thought of everything. The care taker of the property is there and ready to help you with anything you may need. I would recommend renting a car so you are able to see the surrounding area and dining opportunities. All in all it was 5 star.

Awesome View! Good Location!

  • 5 of 5

The home is great for a family, couples or just a couple. It should be noted in the listing there is a flight of steep stairs to enter the home, which is the only entrance. I had a knee replacement a month prior and it was a choir climbing the stairs.

beautiful house.

  • 4 of 5

We really had a great time. the reef was wonderful . Eric was always available to answer questions and assist with all needs. We had a few power outages ( local transformers were repaired during our stay) but the house was well stocked for cooking and using candles so this never was an issue. We would certainly highly recommend and we would return to the west end. All local people were extremely helpful with any questions re. directions or food.

Owner's Response: I’m so sorry about the outage, they are rare. I’m just sorry it happened during your stay. The good news is we got the new transformer that we have been asking for forever. Thank you for staying in our home 💝

Absolute Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to thank you both for allowing us to stay at your beautiful vacation home. We had a fantastic time and the trip couldn't have gone better. Eric was very kind and accommodating for us which really made the check in/check out seamless. The ocean view was amazing! Our only problem now is trying to figure out if we can squeeze in another trip before the end of the year:)

Thank you again for all your thoughtful texts and emails. We have rented from home away for years now throughout the country and you were by far the best of all. Highly recommend this rental home who is thinking about trying home away.... you'll never want to stay in a hotel room again!

Absolutely blown away!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this magnificently beautiful home for the 4th of July! I was completely blown away, the architecture and interior design was outright amazing. The place was spotless and the decor put you immediately in vacation mode. Just off the shores of the beach is a beautiful reef which you can snorkle and dive. The house amenities are outstanding, with just about any activity you can think of inside and outside (darts, ping pong, kayaks, full home stereo system just to name a few). The view is incredible. The sunset and sunrise will surely take your breath away. The owners and help were so very helpful and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend this home to anybody looking to truly get away!
