Ready to enjoy a plush luxury style holiday in central Florida?

The Bahama Bay resort is a Caribbean style gated resort in one of the most exclusive locations in central Florida. It is a first class family friendly vacation home in an ideal location that is very close to Disney attractions.

This villa was upgraded with new carpeting, kitchen appliances, bedding, living room furniture and more. The villa is located on the 2nd (UK 1st) floor and in one of the most centrally located parts of the resort. It is only a few minutes from the main clubhouse and swimming pool, tennis courts and kids splash area). There are 3 large bedrooms, 2 with queen size beds and 1 with twin beds. It has 1 family bathroom and 1 en-suite to the master bedroom. The sofa in the living area converts into a queen bed. All bedrooms are fitted with their own flat screen televisions. There are 2 private balconies, over looking the stunning landscaping and one of the large main pools.

Resort details:

It offers 4 heated swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, lakeside beach, fitness centre, sauna, health spa, clubhouse, poolside bar and grill, all day restaurant (serving breakfast, lunch and dinner), a children's splash pool play area and playground.

*The resort is situated just 10 minutes from Disney and the many theme parks. Just off the US -27 near the intersection of US-192, Bahama Bay is set on the shores of Lake Davenport, only minutes away from a large Walmart, Target and Publix store, 30 minutes away from Orlando International airport, 30 minutes away from Universal Studios and close to the major shopping malls. There is a wide selection of restaurants just minutes away.

**MISCELLANEOUS NOTES**

Many people have asked me this... 'Are those the actual photos of the unit?' Yes, definitely! That is the actual unit you will be staying in. The per night rates excludes taxes and departure cleaning fees. To be clear on the departure cleaning fees, the cleaning fee covers cleaning when unit is vacated only. There will be no resort fees as per other similar rental properties (i.e. there is no extra charge to use the resort facilities). Parking and wireless internet connections are free. Wash soap, dish washing liquid and toiletries will be provided minimally. We do provide adequate amount of towels and cutlery for your stay. During your stay, we encourage you to bring your daily toiletries or/and purchase other items of need from the nearby grocery stores like Publix or Target.

**Be sure to look at our other villa at Bahama Bay's sister resort called Caribe Cove (about a mile away): http://kr8.us/villa **

About Melvin Foo

I’m a computer geek with an engineering degree educated in Wales and England. I currently reside in the United States with my wife and two kids. After my first son was born, I gave up the engineering job that required constant travel so that I could stay close to my family. Since then, I’ve been building my own small business specializing in computer services. That business is growing right along with my two sons, and so putting family first is always the best decision. My beautiful wife and I have already enjoyed a Disney vacation with the boys, and I look forward to making many more memories with the most important people in my life. Orlando, Florida is a place that we love and is truly the happiest place on earth. I hope that your stay in Bahama Bay and the activities you plan on your holiday will bring you closer to those who join you in the adventure. Perhaps you’ll return here again and again. After all, every successful story has a sequel. Well wishes and happy vacationing!

Melvin Foo purchased this villa in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and since we’ve returned home have recommended your condo to many friends. I hope you don’t mind, once they decide to take a trip to Orlando, if we pass along your e-mail address to them. We will return to Orlando in the next few years and I hope that we can stay at your condo again.

I have stayed at Bahama Bay 7 times since 2005. I have noticed over the years that the resort grounds have been maintained to an excellent standard but that the apartments haven't received the same attention. This apartment was maintained to a reasonable standard but not what I would describe as luxurious. However given the cost which was inflated due to the weak pound but at the same period last year would have been about right, it pretty much met with my expectations. It was very clean, so no issues there. However on arrival there were 2 extinguished light bulbs, the shared bathroom toilet seat was not fitted correctly (one hinge not secured), there was some water damage marks on the ceiling and a missing slat from the blind in the living room. There was no chopping board in the kitchen, the coffee mugs were not matching and the crockery in general was not of the same standard experienced in similar apartments. It looked cheap. The fridges in all the other apartments I have stayed in all had ice makers but this just had ice cube trays. I reported the disrepair issues to reception the next day and reparations were made in good time. This will be my last stay at Bahama Bay until they have upgraded the apartments significantly as you can get better value elsewhere which is unfortunate as I love the scale of the resort, not to big like some others which feel very corporate. I emailed Melvin to advise of my findings and he responded very quickly involving the resort Manager. Putting my experience into context, it did not affect my enjoyment of my stay and I pretty much knew what I would get just don't expect luxury.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you had those problems initially but glad it was taken care off by the resort management promptly. I had a firm discussion with the resort management and will make sure will not happen again. There was a slight leak in the living room ceiling due to the recent hurricane but it has since been repaired. It is a surprise to me (with the other comments you had) about the crockery and fridge as we have not had that response from other renters in the past. We did upgrade the villa significantly last year with new a fridge, dishwasher, beds, TVs, carpeting etc. However, with that being said, I do appreciate your comments and will certainly take that into account to improve the villa for all future renters.

Absolutely Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Bahama Bay & we absolutely love it - it is fabulous!

This was our 1st stay in this particular condo & it is immaculate and so comfortable. Our dealings with the owner - Melvin, were faultless.

This place is a real 'home from home' & Bahama Bay's facilities are fantastic. The surroundings are beautiful & spotless.

The Tradewinds pool is lovely with an adjacent beach - complete with hammocks, volleyball, table tennis & comfortable loungers and a pier to a beautiful lake.

We would recommend this condo & Bahama Bay resort without hesitation and hopefully we will return again.

Thank you Melvin.
