George Jamieson purchased this Condo in 2005
Why George Jamieson chose Bahama Bay
We had originally decided to have a 4 bedroom villa built just off the 192, but was then invited to look at Bahama Bay. I was adamant that I would not be interested in a "condo" however I was totally blown away when I saw Bahama Bay. Our unit is a Grand Bahama which is the penthouse of the resort. We actually have more floor space than we would have had at the villa with an incredible 1729 square feet. Of course we also have all the added benefits of being on such a well kept tropical resort, with everything on hand from pools, bars or peaceful walks along the nature trail. When you put all of this together with the added bonus that we are so close to Disney, buying at Bahama Bay was the best decision I ever made.
What makes this Condo unique
I think the best thing I can say about the added benefits that come with Bahama Bay would have to be it's location. Once you drive through the secure gates, you are totally away from all the hustle and bustle that you get at other locations. You can spend all day walking around theme parks or the endless shopping Malls and know that you have a nice and quiet location to return to. We quite often spend a day or so of our holiday never leaving the resort, simply laying by pools drinking cocktails and recharging batteries. With the added convenience of being able to eat in, or even go to the restaurant at the resort, (Tradewinds) you never have to go far. I often wonder what would have happened if I had proceeded to buy the 4 bedroom villa as intended. I consider that I had a lucky escape

Five days in a penthouse
Thank you George for sharing your lovely third floor spacious condo with us. We enjoyed the space. The screened porch was especially lovely as were the large bathrooms. The kitchen could use some updating, especially the cooking utensils and more dish towels and garbage bags would be very helpful. (We had one of each.) we liked the resort very much. The real drawback to this condo is that it is on the third floor and hauling luggage, groceries, etc up the stairs is not the easiest.
This is the first slightly negative comment I have had in many years and somewhat of a surprise.
We pride ourselves on our Platinum rating (highest at the resort) and always reinvest in our property every year. Last year we purchased a top of the range Fridge Freezer and Dish Washer. Not sure what is wrong with the utensils we think there is everything you need and more.
Very sorry if there was not enough dish cloths or garbage sacks, the basic needs are always provided, then guests should supply there own as they see fit during the stay. If there are any concerns reception are always on hand to offer help.
Also sorry for misunderstanding about the location of the condo. It clearly states on our advertisement that this is the penthouse condo, hence on the top floor. I sincerely hope this did not spoil your stay.
Stayed at Bahama Bay for nine days, very relaxing. George was always quick to answer any questions I had. Loved the big balcony off the master bedroom, the full size washer and dryer and the refrigerator with ice and water in door. Hoping to go back next year.
Great family space!
This was perfect for our family! Very spacious and able to accommodate little ones.
Great vacation rental!
Nice vacation rental. We loved the pools and the beach area. Nice clean condo.
A true home from home lovely spacious clean everything you need for a perfect holiday a lovely home
We wanted to return to Bahama Bay it had been six years since we last stayed and the reason for that is we had been allocated a ground floor condo with a refurbishment going on in the condo above (very noisy!) and after many previous years of holidaying there too!.
We had always loved staying on the top floor facing the lake with the fountain before that, amongst the beautiful picturesque grounds that symbolises Bahama Bay to us it’s a beautiful environment there, George’s home MOST CERTAINLY fulfilled all our wishes. George is brilliant, he is friendly, helpful and a true gentleman, he addressed any questions, requests etc we had in good time always replying to our emails just a absolute pleasure to do business with. His home is lovely, very spacious, clean, all your creature comforts are covered the condo is well equipped and maintained. My Husband and I loved to start our day on the balcony with our morning cup of tea listening to the fountain and enjoying the climate there, the trees have grown a lot since our last visit to Bahama Bay about six years ago blocking the view of the lake, George had already told me about this and how the view was more of the trees when I made this particular enquiry with him but to be honest it didn’t matter to us because the whole ambience was perfect for us. The community is gated, the amenities offered are excellent and the management/onsite staff were friendly and helpful. You’re close to shops and restaurants, the nearby interstates takes you to all the main theme parks etc..it’s just a perfect condo in a perfect resort and we had a perfect holiday..thank you George and family xx
I do not know how to respond to such nice comments, Eve and her family are such honest and lovely people.
During their stay, they informed me that the oven had stopped working. Of course, these things happen, and I did all I could to help, but Eve was so good, reporting the issue and giving me daily updates whilst the resort staff fixed things.
Yes, we too love our Floridian home, and cannot wait to visit each year. During such visits, we make time to update and improve as much as we can maintaining our Platinum status from the resort. When we have such nice comments as feedback, it simply encourages us to keep doing what we do.
Eve and her family have now expressed a desire to book again in future years, they will, of course, be very very welcome!
First, many thanks to George for flexibility on check-in time, since it allowed us to hit-the-road running without our bags. The unit was well furnished and felt homely to return to after the long days at the parks. For first-timers like us, George was good at giving us some additional info which was complemented by the staff at the Resort. Unfortunately we did not plan for enough downtime to enjoy the amenities at the Resort, but we did squeeze in a round of Tennis. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to friends.
Firstly, can I say I would welcome Ben and his family back at any time, and we are really glad he had such a nice time.
We did have a few issues surrounding payments through the website and had to cancel the first attempt at making the reservation completely and start again, this was as far as I can understand not the fault of Ben at all and we are glad he stuck with it and managed to complete the reservation in the end.
Ben requested additional information that I was happy to provide and hope this made his holiday a better experience.
We hope to see this family again in the future and thank them for being our guests.
