About Nicki Bogle

As a Marketing Consultant, I have had the opportunity to travel extensively. Bahama Bay has the right balance of tranquillity, comfort and activity for me. The area is beautiful, the amenities are close by and I have all the facilities I need on site. This is truly a 'home away from home' for me - I love the climate, the people & the lifestyle.

Nicki Bogle purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Nicki Bogle chose Davenport

Although I live in the UK, my family originates from the Caribbean. I was instantly drawn to Bahama Bay as the resort reminded me of Jamaica and it's laid back culture...but being a city girl - I also want some activity. It is perfectly located for the fun of Disney, shopping at the outlets and relaxing in the spa or by the pool.

What makes this apartment unique

Every trip I have made has been different! There is something for everyone - whether you like the thrill of roller coasters, want a new wardrobe, want to enjoy the wildlife or to be pampered. My apartment is a perfect escape from the 'hustle and bustle' of Disney and many other parks, yet close enough to enjoy the ever-changing attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, what can we say!? We arrived home to England today and I immediately felt compelled to send you an email, thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment. We have had the most amazing break; everything from the booking process to the directions you gave us, from the stunning, spacious apartment to the perfect stay at this incredible resort, it was all absolutely first class! Once again, we wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts; Bahama Bay, and your apartment, really was a home from home for us and the added amenities of the resort just added to a really super stay. We would be more than happy to recommend you and would love for our family to be considered for future visits.

Great location and great condo.

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous, 9 days in this condo. Was perfect distance to drive to Disney and universal. Around 20 minutes maximum. Great family pool and hot tubs that are really close to the condo. The rooms are spacious and it has everything you need for your stay. Would highly reccomend to stay here.

I would recommend, I would stay again but...

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend people stay here, I would stay again but this review is based on the resort experience.

Overall the condo is nice, there are a couple cosmetic flaws from being a rental but nothing to complain about. The big burners on the stove do not work, I checked to see if the burners were unplugged, ended up using the small burners. The location of the condo is near the pool and splash pad which was nice. There is a nature path that was good for walking and getting a run in, we even saw 2 baby gators in the big pond. The resort grounds are kept up and cleaned. They offer a free DVD rental program. Have a small store, pools, computer center, kids play area, fitness room, pretty much anything that you would need. This is very close to attractions and an easy jump to Orlando for meetings. Owner is very attentive, and thankfully patient. We would stay again.

Our complaint: We checked in on Sept 14, since our flight was an am flight, I double checked what time check in was, which states 2p on the rental agreement. We had lunch, bought groceries and checked in. Upon check in, we were billed the cleaning fee $100.80 (not $89.60). They checked to make sure condo was ready. When we entered the room, 2nd floor carrying luggage/groceries with children, the condo was a mess. Cleaning lady was still there. She called for a mgr, mgr didn't arrive and after 20 min I called the front desk. We were asked to leave in the pouring rain so the cleaners (they sent 2 more up) could finish or let them work around us. We were told check in is at 4p but that they would do a complimentary clean the next day (which never happened). The front desk lady handling this was brusque (no other complaints about the staff the rest of the stay). Later someone tried to walk in, we had the chain on. Not sure who she was but she was checking to see if the cleaning was done. The pull out couch sheet was dirty (crumbs) and the king bed had too small of a sheet on it. Later, we placed 2 orders for dinner at the Restaurant. My order had 2 top buns for the burger and they forgot the fries. Brother's order had 2 salads forgotten. When we called they said we could come back in 10 min or over 20 min for delivery, we had already picked up the orders and tipped over $8 so we waited. On Sunday, there was a knock on the door at 9:42p from security for a noise complaint. We explained that our children were watching a movie, had just gotten back from a day at the beach, he looked confused.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I am glad that overall you enjoyed your stay but I am disappointed to hear that the total experience was not to your satisfaction. I wish I had known about the issues while you were there, so that I could have had them fixed for you but I will get on to the maintenance team about that now & also look into the cleaning issues. I really appreciate your feedback and would love to have you stay again, so that I have the opportunity to score a five star review next time.

Excellent! Would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated on the 1st floor of a 3 story building. Very well presented with a large living space and 3 great sized bedrooms with lots of storage and wardrobe space - a great home from home. The complex has some lovely pools and facilities and you are very near to all of the Disney parks - 20 mins by car!! The kids loved the place!! Shops are 5-10mins away for Walmart and Target meaning you can get all the extras you may need for reasonable prices. Lots or restaurants on the main roads and delivery services if desired.

I would highly recommend this apartment if you are visiting Disney.

Loved it so much!

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to give it such a high recommendation because I want to keep it to myself! It was so beautiful and very tranquil but yet pool, splash area, and club house provided many fun opportunities. We didn't visit parks but seemed to be a central location. Wal-Mart, other grocery stores, and restaurants nearby. Would dedinitely stay again. Check in/out was easy and Staff very friendly and accommodating.Thank you Nicki for such a beautiful place.
