Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This newly built Grand Bahama Vacation Rental Home located on the water with boat access is professionally decorated and has a simple charm for both the beach goers and the fishermen. If you are a sport fisher or like to play on the water, this is your tropical paradise. Pull your boat up to the dock or simply throw your bait in the water right out back at the landing. The house has been stylishly decorated, making it a warm and cozy place to read, relax or sunbathe on the back deck. The landing has a 15 foot deep canal that doubles as a gateway for some of the best fishing and diving the Caribbean has to offer. A short walk down the road leads to the beach or snorkel the canal looking for tropical fish and lobster. Yes Lobster! In the evening, you are only a few short miles from the night life at Port Lucaya where you can dance the night away, enjoy a delicious dinner; or simply sit on the veranda in the rear of the home and smoke a cigar, star gaze, listen to music or even make a little of your own. If you would like to see more pictures and a 3 Dimensional tour of our tropical home on our website at www.HavenDelMar.com.

Why Bonnie Bucher chose Bahamas

Traveling throughout the islands, I wanted to build a home that had a tropical feel in a remote location while still having the conveniences of a modern city. Freeport is a cool mix of the laid back life style of the Abacos coupled with a hint of the city life of Nassau. You can drive to the east side of the island and walk for miles and not see a soul; or you can drive down the road to a store similar to Sam's Club or Costco and buy a weeks worth of groceries for your family.

What makes this house unique

Haven Del Mar offers direct access to the ocean from the backyard. You can pull your boat up to the dock, thus eliminating expensive dockage fees. You have the convenience of offloading stores and the catch of the day without traveling or walking long distances to your lodging. Hot day? Jump in the canal and catch some lobsters. Enjoy the tropical fish that live and play under the dock. Swim across the canal and you'll be on a remote beach that its only habitats are blue crab and tropical birds. Hear the ocean waves splash and crash from the back deck. In one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Grand Bahama, Haven Del Mar is ready to give you and your family remarkable memories of your exotic vacation to the islands.

Exceptional home and a fantastic host!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the home to find it clean, cozy and inviting. The house was completely redecorated after the recent hurricane. We loved it!!! The owner gave us expert local information for bakeries, restaurants and clearing customs. He even shared gps numbers for our family to go fishing. We destroyed the snapper on the North side. I think the numbers were worth more than the rental. LOL.

Our kids played at the dock and practiced their back flips on the diving board. It was a huge hit. As much as we loved being in the boat; we could not wait to get back to the house. It was so easy for us to park the boat out back and just relax. We were able to have a cocktail on the dock and enjoy our family while still doing boating duties. It was so easy. We cleaned the fish, boat and gear and were in a hot shower moments afterward.

The pool table was a hit as well. Our family had a billiard competition every night. Kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook our catch. We saved so much money by catching and cooking healthy meals.

Thank you Haven Del Mar for our memories. We definitely will be back!

This was my second visit to Haven Del Mar and it was even more beautiful than I remember.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to Haven Del Mar and it was even more beautiful than I remember. The property has been completely updated with a relaxing beach cottage feel to it. We were able to open the doors and not only enjoy the beautiful blue water views of the Bahamas but were also able to relax with the ocean breeze whirling through the house. We were able to get there easily by boat this time and the house's location makes it a quick and easy entry into the Bahamas. We took several boat trips around the island to enjoy the surrounding fishing, local hot spots restaurants and amazing beaches. The locals are always helpful and inviting making it a vacation that truly feels like home away from home. Looking forward to my next visit to beautiful Haven!

Clean, Quiet, and Comfortable

  • 3 of 5

Conveniently located on the canal, easy access by boat. We didn't even need a rental car. 15min boat ride to Port Lucaya. Clean and comfortable.

The only negatives were: broken dishwasher and ice maker. The Wifi only worked one day out of five, which is not a big deal if you in the Bahamas for a vacation and not business. I payed $10/day on my cell for Bahamian cell service when I got there.

Comfortable beds for sure. All-in-all I really enjoyed my time there!

Thank you!

Owner's Response: Glad you and your friends had a great time. Dishwasher was hit by lightning and another was shipped to the island. It arrived after you left. Still working with the utility company about the internet but it should all be completed by the end of March. Come back and see us soon. Bring your boat again... J

Not recovered yet from hurricane.

  • 3 of 5

We did enjoy our stay. The home was clean except for drywall dust atop of every window. A by-product of them having to do so many repairs. The location was very quiet, with a nice setting. The dishwasher was disconnected, and for us, we did a lot of cooking, most would not find this a negative. The internet was not restored, again a problem from the storm, but cost us $140 to get service while we were there. The homeowner offered to give us a couple of extra days on our next stay, but as we like to visit different places, it's like a free ticket to a movie you've already seen. I believe that the rating would have been a 5 prior to the storm. Hope they are able to recover from this latest storm, soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for part of your kind words Tom. I am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. It was my understanding that your family had a wonderful time. Hurricane Matthew was a direct hit to our island and our home. Power was restored just prior to your arrival. We went to great expense with contractors under generator power to completely restore the home to better than new so your family was able to vacation with us. Because of the widespread damage throughout the island, the internet did not come up until mid January. We sustained over 200 mph winds and are lucky to have a home. We were luckier than most. In response to your review. Sometimes, movies are appreciated more the second time around. J

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week in December and had a great time. Plenty of space for us ( family of four with 2 older kids) to spread out. Plenty of space indoora and out. Had a lot of fun looking at the fish swimming under the dock, you never knew what brightly colored marine life you would find. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. We rented a car which seems mandatory for getting to the grocery store and to various points of interest around Freeport such as beaches, restaurants and the Fish Fry. Due to the recent hurricane the wi-fi wasn't yet working which turned out to be a blessing in disguise. We spent a lot of time as a family playing pool, cards, reading and relaxing together.
