Our cute 3 br house, with a pool and a dock on the canal, is just a short ride from the restaurants, bars and shops in Port Lucaya and downtown Freeport.
Enjoy paddleboards, kayaks, dolphin and shark adventures, fishing or just relax.
We're in a family neighborhood - our home is not suitable for parties or college spring-break trips.

The space

Our home has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 8 + baby in the portable crib.

Master bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser, walk-in closets and full bath with shower.
Bedroom #2 has two twin beds and a dresser.
Bedroom #3 has two twin beds, dresser and a closet.
The twin beds can easily be placed side-by-side to make a bigger bed. We have an in-lay to cover the gap between the beds.

The second bath, with tub and shower, is located between the two smaller bedrooms and the dining area.

Our living room has a pull-out couch with a full size bed, TV and a cabinet with some games and puzzles.

The dining room has a big table which extends to seat up to 10 people.

Kitchen if fully equipped - from cups and glasses to utensils and pots and pans and basic spices such as salt, pepper, garlic salt and All spice and cooking oil. It has a gas stove, a full size fridge and a half size freezer, coffee maker, blender and toaster.

The house has A/C and fans in all rooms, basic cable TV and wireless internet.
Sliding doors from the master bedroom and bedroom #2, as well as the dining area, lead you out to the patio and our pool. All with a view of the canal. Outside we have a couple of small tables and plenty of chairs. There is also a wooden picnic table with an umbrella for meals outside.

The yard is full of native plants and trees such as coconuts and avocado.
We recommend bringing shoes to wear outside in the yard as the native grass and underlying stones are quite rough.

IMORTANT - there is NO FENCE around the pool or towards the canal. Families with small children should be aware and take necessary measures to keep their children safe.
There are safety plugs for outlets in the food pantry in the kitchen. No other child safety equipment is provided.

Guest access

Renters of Getaway Bahamas will have access to entire house and yard.
But NOT to the boats and jetski that are docked outside the house. We understand it's tempting, but DO NOT walk on the boats.

Guest DO NOT have permission to use electric scooter, electric bicycle and dinghy that are located in the garage. If one wishes to use any one of them, a special contract needs to be signed. Request can be made at time of rental. If the vehicle is available for your rental period you will sign contract and pay for said vehicle at arrival.

Interaction with guests

Most likely we will stay on our boat when we rent out our home. Either at the dock by the house or out sailing. If we're not at the house when you arrive, you can reach us thru email and by phone during your stay.

Genuinely cannot speak highly enough of this place. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING was exactly as promised from an effortless handover upon arrival to a swift getaway when we (rather reluctantly) had to return home. The location is excellent - only a 5 min drive from Freeport but you feel wonderfully secluded, the silence only broken by the odd calling bird, the chug of a passing boat - oh yeah and the kids in the pool but that was kinda of our own doing. Facilities are first rate and the little things have been thought of - there is washing liquid and dishwasher tabs, there is a Bluetooth speaker, there are bath robes and beach towels, fine glasses for dinner through to cheap plastic beakers for the pool. 'home from home' is an over-used cliche but we all genuinely felt at home within moments of arrival. There is no doubt that we will be making a return trip.

Tess and Olav's house is amazing! The view by the pool looking out on the canal is breathtaking! We truly enjoyed our 12 day stay there! The house is fully equipped from the kitchen, bathrooms, to the toys in the garage! The beach day bags came in handy also. Tess is very good at responding to questions in a timely manner and we found the local contact Donna to helpful as well. I feel like this is a very reasonable price for such a beautiful location in the Bahamas! You will need a car however to be able to get to the store, marketplace or beaches! Be sure to check out Island Yogurt at Port Lucaya Marketplace!!

Tess and Olav have mastered the art of AirB&B! Their house is VERY CLEAN and Well Organized! We only had to stop for groceries. Their kitchen is fully equipped and all the beds are super comfortable! We choose to rent a van at Brads rental car from the airport and it facilitated us to see more of the island. They gave us all kinds of helpful tips and ideas of what to see around the island! They really thought about everything! You'll find some kind notes left around the house to guide you. From beach towels/bags to social games and outdoor equipments like kayak, they have it all set up! My family mostly enjoyed the private pool and the big dinning table that can comfortably sit 8! (a high chair for babies is also available) We were able to gather for our traditional family dinners and that really made us feel right at home! We really enjoyed our experience from day one! Tess and Olav where very fast to respond to the emails. They made our last minute booking stress free and our stay very pleasant! I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

We absolutely loved our stay at Tess and Olav's place. The house is really well equipped with everything needed for preparing meals or a day on the beach. Tess is a great communicator and it was a pleasure arranging our stay with her. For anyone considering a holiday on Grand Bahama island, I would strongly recommend their place

Tess and Olav's beautiful, meticulously appointed house was the home base for our amazing getaway to Grand Bahama Island. Set in a quiet community of canal side homes, everything about the house will make you feel like you're living in paradise while you're there. They have thought it all out and include everything you need to feel at home. The house was so well-organized, it was easy to remember where things were because it all made logical sense. We loved taking the kayaks out on the canal and visiting beautiful beaches within a few minutes' drive. If we didn't feel like cooking, we had many restaurant options close by. Would recommend renting a car- we were nervous about driving on the left but picked it up quickly, and were able to navigate the island using maps fairly easily. There were things to do around the island rain or shine as well, although the rain never lasted very long. Thanks for the great memories!

Tess & Olav were great communicators & they've done everything possible to make the house a fantastic vacation spot. Set in a quiet upscale neighborhood on one of the island waterways, the house has a gated drive for security. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with palms, palmettos, and hibiscus bushes to give complete privacy on the patio and pool. The house is tastefully appointed with new furnishings, including everything you might need for cooking and for enjoying the beach. The owners thoughtfully provided robes for lounging and beach bags, towels, ice blocks, etc.--all the things necessary for daily outings. The kitchen has a very full collection of dishes, cutlery, and glassware, including conveniences like storage containers and bags. The house is close to the entertainment and dining of Port Lucaya and the beaches of Fortune Bay, but you'll want a car to go to those places as well as the amazing more secluded beaches on the island. However, if you enjoy scenic quiet and lounging by the pool, you'd never have to leave the compound. Kayaking in the waterway is an adventure all of its own; you're in easy paddling range of a channel to the ocean and the waterway itself is scenic, lined with beautiful homes and wild patches that serve as home to lots of birds. There's no light pollution at night, so you can sit on the patio or in the pool and gaze up at the milky way, and in the morning you'll awaken to the trills of blackbirds and other song birds. We've been coming to the island for many years, and can't imaging a better place to stay.
