How long is it since you saw a fish leap in sun-dappled water?
From my delightful one-bedroom apartment, you can look out over the lovely pool area to the beautifully clear aquamarine water of Bell Channel beyond. Watch the sparkling white pleasure craft sail by throughout the day. Admire the reflections during the calm early morning and evening times and watch for those fish breaking the surface. If you feel so-inclined you could even try to catch some!
The unit consists of an entrance hall, one bedroom with a queen size bed and ample storage, a living/dining room, kitchen and bathroom. The rooms are light and airy with ceiling fans and air-conditioning and the kitchen is well equipped with excellent appliances. The living/dining room has one whole wall of glass doors opening onto the balcony - perfect for al fresco dining!
The attractive pool area is well furnished with a bar on the waters edge where you can relax with a cool drink and enjoy the waterside location.

Location and Amenities: The island boasts an excellent infrastructure for modern day living, including good roads, public transport and reliable power, telephone and utilities.
There are also several championship standard golf courses, world class scuba diving, excellent boating and good fishing. There are various sports and social clubs, a theatre, cinemas and a wide choice of fine dining from the delicious local Bahamian fare to a range of international cuisine and gourmet restaurants.
Grand Bahama is just a short 25 minute flight from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or the Bahamas capital, Nassau, all of which have a range of available and affordable flights from UK.
The Bahamas: Spread over a large expanse of Atlantic Ocean, the 700 islands of The Bahamas bask in breezy semi-tropical sunshine all year. About one hundred of the islands are minimally inhabited, and just a small handful has any kind of sizable population.
Starting just 50 miles from the Florida coast, the archipelago swoops southeast for some 600 miles, almost to Haiti and Cuba. The capital, Nassau, is located on New Providence, while the second city, Freeport, is on Grand Bahama. The other islands, known as the Family Islands, including Andros, The Abacos, Eleuthera, & The Exumas, are very accessible, thanks to the small, but very reliable, local airlines.
The greatest asset of these islands is the incredible sea, which they ornament. Colours range from pale crystal green in the Bahama banks to deep regal blue in Exuma Sound and the awesomely deep Tongue of the Ocean. The water is so clear that you hardly need a snorkel mask to view the amazing array of marine life at the countless coral reef
