Why Edwina Dixon chose World

While I have traveled many places around the world, I travel to the Bahamas, more specifically Freeport, more than anywhere else. I fell in love with this island many years ago in the 90's and have been a frequent visitor since. Since my retirement, several years ago, I decided to purchase a beach vacation property and looked at many properties in Georgia, Florida and S. Carolina. As soon as I saw this condo, I was hooked and I knew it was the right choice for me. I love it here and I know you will love it too!

What makes this condo unique

One of the primary features that I love about Paradise Vista is it's beautiful panoramic views, which caused me to give it it's name! I can sit for hours in one of the 5 reclining seats and feel a sense of serenity and peace looking at the water, the birds and the sunsets. Or lay in bed in the Master Bedroom and gaze for hours. I love the fact that it's a ground floor unit with no steps to climb! Very good benefit for aging knees. I love that it's so spacious and that each bedroom has it's own private bath, a plus for a large family or a group of friends. I also like the fact that it is a gated community and I can park my car right in front of the unit without having to go through hallways, elevators or a large parking lot.

Although Paradise Vista is somewhat secluded and off the beaten path, it is a very convenient drive to restaurants, movie theater, shops, grocery/liquor stores, airport, fishing, snorkeling and other activities and sites. The pool is right in the front of the unit and is seldom crowded.

There is a small boom box in the living room and a nice collection of CD's for your listening pleasure. I've also included a starting supply of toilet paper, paper towels, soap and lotion for your use.

I have arranged for a wonderful chef to prepare one to two meals per day or week at your request. You can also arrange for groceries and spirits to be purchased for you and placed in your condo prior to your arrival (requires 1 week scheduling in advance). We can also recommend a few rental car agencies to use for the rental of a vehicle during your stay and/or a taxi driver for transportation to the many sites and activities that you're sure to enjoy. (Additional costs will apply).

Paradise Vista truly is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, spacious, well-stocked condo with amazing views, and a perfect little white sand beach just steps from the patio. The owner, Edwina, is very attentive, and provides great directions and tips for the area. Wish we were still on vacation at Paradise Vista!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful vacation spot. The villa and views are just as beautiful in person as they are in the pictures. Property was very clean and well-taken care of. The terrace was the perfect spot for my son to propose to his girlfriend. Would love to come back soon.

Beautiful! Wonderful! Want To Go Back Already!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I,one daughter and her boyfriend, another daughter and my niece all spent 1 week here and all loved it! The condo itself was perfect for us with 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths,just steps outside we sat on patio mornings and evenings and listened to the water and saw beautiful sunsets. My 1 daughter spent a lot of time in hammock reading and just enjoying the view and we all relaxed outside as much as we could. The beach is just a little ways off to the right where they all walked and swam in the crystal clear water. So much fun finding little treasures on the beach! We had rented a car so we were all over the island exploring different places and finding new places to eat also. We all loved Zorbas Greek restaurant and ate there several times, also Banana Bay for really good fruity drinks and a beautiful beach also. We,(the girls) called a cab one day while the guys went snorkling and we called Hayward Forbes(his number is there at condo) and what a trip he took us on! He took us where we wanted to go and on way back he took us on a tour of very interesting places and told us a lot of history and we laughed till I just about cried!! If you need a cab, call Hayward! It is actually a very nice van with good A.C. and he is so much fun. My only "bad" thing to say is, hammock needs to be restrung because daughter had to restring parts of it every time she used it, which was often, I think the sun and sea water has done it in. otherwise...........Perfect!!!

Great location! Nice beach.

  • 4 of 5

Only criticism is that new living room furniture is needed.

Owner's Response: Hello Ken, Thank you for providing a review. New living room furniture was purchased a few weeks ago and is being shipped to the island and delivered at the end of this month. I will be posting it on my listing shortly after. As a temporary solution to the few worn areas in the faux leather, I placed furniture covers on the current furniture. The logistics of getting these types of items to an island location is a little more difficult and time consuming than in the states or mainland. I hope you, Theresa and your family did enjoy yourselves and the other amenities and services that I provided before and during your stay and that you will return again to check out our new furniture too. Sincerely, Edwina

Edwinas condo was everything we expected when we walked in the door.

  • 5 of 5

First I need to say that I got all kinds of help from Edwina before I even reached the Island such as I had a taxi waiting on my family when I arrived at the Freeport airport. I had food stocked in the refrigerator when I arrived at 8:00 at night with her help. I also was able to connect with Captain AJ who took us on a personal boat tour. I cant thank her enough and she truly goes out of her way to make it a great vacation for your family. The place inside is open and plenty spacious with all the comforts of home. The views are simply beautiful in any direction you look. Swam in the blue water every day. We love the Bahamas and would happily book her place again. And when you go there make sure she gives you Hayward # a personable and professional taxi service.

Calm, tranquil, peaceful & serene: This is why we love Grand Bahama and Paradise Vista!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location...that's what we want for our summer vacation. This vacation getaway is ideally situated overlooking the gorgeous waters of Grand Bahama. The beautiful, clear, warm water surrounding this island is why we have been coming here for over 20 years. When our regular vacation rental suffered devastating damage during last year's hurricane, we turned to VRBO for an alternative. Always wary of booking accommodations sight unseen, our worries were put to rest the moment we entered our villa. We arrived early and had the pleasure of meeting Shakera, who we thanked for making our unit so spotless and clean. She answered all our questions and showed us where everything was located, and how to work the TV and wi-fi. We had no problems with the TV and the wi-fi service was fast and reliable throughout. The rooms are surprisingly large for a vacation rental, the beds are comfortable and the views from the living room and the patio are stunning.

Since we have been to this island many times we do not feel the need to go sightseeing. We spend our days at the villa and in the water. This is a very comfortable home in which to spend your time. The adjoining beach is ideal for floating away the afternoon. And of course, this being Grand Bahama, the beach is NEVER crowded.

The owner, Edwina, was always prompt in responding to our emails and answering our phone calls both during our preparations and while on the island. We are now checking our calendar to make plans for 2018.

The island of Grand Bahama is surrounded by sun-soaked beaches and miles of crystal-clear ocean water; making it a prime place for a number of water activities. From scuba diving, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and fishing, to glass-bottom boat tours, banana boat rides, and parasailing, there is no shortage of activities for visitors. Several postcard-perfect beaches like Gold Rock Beach offer soft, sugar-white sand and plenty of beach bars and restaurants. Shoppers will love the Port Lucaya Marketplace for local crafts, souvenirs, and live musical entertainment.

The dolphin swim is a popular attraction that will leave a lasting impression, or animal and nature lovers can also check out Garden of the Groves, a wildlife center that transports travelers to a tropical oasis full of birds and other native animals. Several tour operators offer eco-travel adventures including kayaking in Peterson Cay National Park, hiking in Lucayan Nation Park, or exploring some of the island's legendary blue holes and caves.

In the evening, join in music and dance with the bonfire on the beach, a local tradition that takes place in the sand. Be sure to check out some of the local businesses and restaurants where you're sure to find some of the best Bahamian food and prices.

Sire's Bahamian restaurant and bar has some great food and is only 5 minutes from the villa across the street from Pollo Tropical (next to Burger King) and next door to a gas station. Banana Bay is great for a beachfront lunch and cocktail. It's about 20 miles east of the villa, but well worth the trip. If you want some nightlife, dancing from Thursday to Saturday nights at Club Neptune's in the front of Port Lucaya Market Place is sure to please. Say hello to Rosie, the owner or try out their newest restaurant and bar, Kalypzo, in the square and give a shout out to Tessa, one of the friendly bartenders. Port Lucaya's Count Basie's Square is lots of fun for the whole family. It has numerous restaurants, bars and shops, as well as a straw market. On Friday and Saturday evenings, there is usually live entertainment or a DJ for your dancing pleasure. An ATM that dispenses US funds is also located at the Lucayan Hotel. On Sunday afternoons, at Tony Macaroni's beachfront shack, you can enjoy live jazz on Taino beach, your favorite drink and a snack of conch salad, grilled fish, burgers and hot dogs. You can also find some water sports for more fun in the sun.

Please feel free to contact me before or during your trip for more specific information and recommendations.
