Overview

About the property

A large luxury waterfront island villa, complete with pool, spa, boat & dockage!

Flamingo Lane is a luxury 4000 sq.ft., 5-bedroom waterfront island villa

Near beach, we are situated in a large canal basin with views over the water and our large pool & spa is surrounded by tropical gardens.

There is a 9 foot boat included along with a two person Kayak and paddle board for you to enjoy and explore the canal system. Should you bring your own boat dockage is available up to 50 foot. If you are experienced in small boat handling you can use our 9 foot Boston Whaler to potter around in. And if the weather is permitting even venture around to a beach only 4 minutes away.

This is a house built for entertaining! With multiple open plan living areas inside and 2000 sq. ft. of patio around the pool and spa, Flamingo Lane is perfect for large gatherings, group vacations and big families.

Getting to beaches is so easy. The bars, nightclubs, shops, casino, cafes, restaurants, beach bars and markets of Port Lucaya are just a 2 mile drive away. For those arriving by boat, we have 125' of deep water canal frontage (approx. 16' deep) to accommodate both small and large vessels, plus 30 and 50 amp shore power, WiFi internet, TV and water hook up.

KITCHEN:

A huge open-plan space at the center of the house and leads into the TV Entertainment Lounge, the Formal Relaxing Lounge and the Dining Room. The close proximity to these other rooms allows the whole family or group to relax or do different activities but without being separated. The large island with granite counter-top serves as a meeting place for all guests. Ample seating is available - stools at the breakfast bar and stools at the round glass table (and a high-chair is available upon request at no extra charge). This makes it a great place to have breakfast altogether, mix drinks, and chat.

A separate door at the back of the kitchen leads to the UTILITY ROOM with a front-loading washing machine, a separate front-loading dryer, ironing board and iron.

DINING ROOM:

An airy and spacious room with a large dining table and six dining chairs, and overlooks our beautiful tropical front garden.

Situated at the front of the house, it is both open plan, so that guests do not feel confined, and also separate from the other living areas, to give a little privacy and quiet. The large dresser contains all the napkins, table mats and candles/candlesticks you may require for the perfect formal island dinner in the comfort of Flamingo Lane.

TV ENTERTAINMENT LOUNGE:

This open-plan room is great for everyday living. A bright floral three-piece suite, coffee table and two side tables are surrounded by big windows that overlook the tropical garden and pool. Glass double patio doors open out onto the covered porch. A large flat-screen TV with media player and speakers provide a great entertainment area for kids and adults. There is collection of books and novels, as well as a chess set, backgammon, board games and cards.

FORMAL RELAXING LOUNGE:

This open-plan room is set off by a very large, comfy three-piece suite in a soft, rich red fabric. Accompanied by a big coffee table and two side tables, this is a wonderful place to spend the evening inside with cocktails, watching the sun set over the water, as the glass double patio doors open out onto the covered porch and overlook the pool fringed by coconut trees and, beyond, the canal.

BEDROOM 1:

Very large room with king-size bed, walk-in closet and flat-screen TV. Glass patio doors (with full blinds) lead out to patio, pool and spa. En-suite bathroom with shower and spa bath.

BEDROOM 2:

Very large room with king-size bed, closets and flat-screen TV. Glass patio doors (with full blinds) lead out to private patio with BBQ grill and picnic table, and to the pool. En-suite bathroom with walk-in shower.

BEDROOM 3:

Large room with queen-size bed, large closet, flat-screen TV and dressing table with mirror. Looks out over our beautiful tropical garden. En-suite bathroom with double sinks, bath and overhead shower.

BEDROOM 4:

Queen-size bed and bunk beds with closet. Looks out over tropical garden. Bathroom is shared with Guest Bedroom 2 via a separate door in the hall. There is also access to a half-bathroom via the hall.

BEDROOM 5/STUDY:

Queen-size pull-out sofa bed (very comfortable) with desk and hanging closet. If preferred, this room can be used as an office or study.​

Complementary toiletries in all bathrooms. Hairdryer available in all bedrooms. Bath towels provided.

A baby cot can be provided upon request at no extra charge.

SWIMMING POOL:

​​​The 30' x 15' large swimming pool and adjoining jacuzzi spa is a focus for most guests, as you can imagine! Surrounded by coconut trees and frangipani and overlooking the canal, it is definitely our favorite spot, too!

PATIO AREA:

The patio area surrounding the pool and spa is approximately 2000 sq. ft. - plenty of room for entertaining. With several comfy loungers and separate pool towels provided, it is perfect for spending days relaxing in the sunshine or sunbathing. Around the corner from the pool is a patio sheltered by palm trees and complete with a BBQ grill, a big garden parasol for some shade and a large round picnic table for outdoor dining, drinking and entertaining.

COVERED PORCH:

The covered porch is often many guests' favourite place to relax in the evening. The sofa and armchairs all overlook the pool and, beyond, the canal - which provides a wonderful backdrop for the most beautiful sunsets (which we seem to be treated with almost every evening!) and the ideal spot for sundowners!

The house is situated in a large, quiet canal basin with a private dock. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe and the house has a code-operated gate at the front.

By boat (included), we are just a few minutes away from the ocean and beautiful beaches (often nobody else there…it's amazing). One of the best beaches is just outside of our canal entrance, less than 1/2 mile away. The boat is also ideal for just pottering around our waterway.

By car, we are a five minute drive to all the main attractions on the island: colourful Port Lucaya Market Place with many shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment at Count Basie Square.

On foot, one of the beaches is just a 1 mile walk away!

We would be close by to assist you should the need arise.

ACTIVITIES:

Only 60 miles east of the Florida coast, Grand Bahama has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and some of the clearest turquoise seas which make exploring the reefs with an abundance of colorful fish an amazing pastime - so make sure you bring along your underwater camera. If you scuba dive, the shark feed is a must or you can explore one of many wrecks.

About Bob Errington

We first came to these beautiful islands from the UK in the early 70's and spent 10 years here working.

Upon retiring we returned to Freeport and bought our boat to live on while we built our house.

We then took off on our boat and spent 3 years enjoying the islands while our house was rented.

We would now like to give the opportunity for others to enjoy our beautiful home!

Bob Errington purchased this house in 2008

Why Bob Errington chose Bahamas

Lucaya is the hub of Freeport, almost everything that goes on in Freeport happens in Lucaya. Great restaurants, bars, shops, live entertainment under the stars in Count Basie square, casino, beach access, marina, and more. All less than 2 miles away.

Beautiful waterfront pool home!

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Carol have a beautiful home and is perfect for a large group. We had 9 people in our party and had plenty of room. The house is fully equipped with everything you could need. The pool/deck area are gorgeous and is where you will spend the majority of your time. Bob and Carol were excellent hosts. I highly recommend their house.

Great house.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. The docking was easy and the navigation of the canal was good. Bob and Carole were very accommodating. We went with all guys, but it would be a great place to bring the whole family.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house, spacious, clean, and well equipped. As shown in pictures. Bob and Carol were very gracious and accommodating. Their boat is docked behind the house making them readily available if needed. The dingy and kayak made the trip more enjoyable considering the downside of this trip was that we couldn't bring our boat as planned.

Fantastic Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 people stay at 21 Flamingo Lane for Bachelorette Party. The house itself is immaculate and everything you could ever ask for in a vacation home. Bob and Carole were so kind and welcoming and easily the greatest hosts! They provided us with a taxi driver's number to pick us up from the airport and help get us around all weekend. The only downside/negative I have is that the house's location is not really within walking distance from Port Lucaya. We really relied on the taxi service to get to the grocery store, bars, the beach, etc. We spent most of our time at the house, so this was not too much of an issue for us.

This house is a great deal complete with stellar hosts! We've already recommended it to tons of our friends!

Wonderful and relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Carol were great hosts to us. We were a party of 9, including 2 little ones and they picked us up from the airport and drove us back at the end. We had everything we could possibly need in this luxury villa. The pool was amazing. The views were breathtaking and the beach was a short 3 min boat ride. Once there it's like your own personal beach!!

If you're looking to get away, find peace, host ur party in a very large and homey villa, then this is a must! Would love to go back and stay again!!

Thank you again for your kind hospitality and a WONDERFUL week Bob and Carol!!!

Owner's Response: Layal and her family were a pleasure to meet and have to stay in our property. They were a very friendly group and respectful of our home. We would have no reservations about recommending them for any future vacation rentals. We would be very happy to welcome them back for another stay and hope to see them all again!
