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 Bahama Bay

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 place, close to Disney

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. The condo has loads of space and 2 bathrooms. Nicely furnished and well maintained. 4 swimming pools and a beach on the complex. Everything a family would need and only 15 minutes from Disney. Nicki the owner can't do enough to help you and a pleasure to organise your holiday with. Would recommend to anyone.

Bare basics

  • 3 of 5

This is our 5th time staying at Bahama Bay, each time at a different condo. This condo had the bare basics. The furnishings were not high quality. There was a filthy, stained chair in one of the bedrooms (I put it in the closet so I didn’t have to look at it) half of the outlets didn’t even work, the couches were very uncomfortable and worn, there were no bar stools at the kitchen counter, only one extra blanket in the whole condo and the bedrooms by the front door need room darkening shades to keep out the outside lights at night and the bright sunlight in the morning. There was a burn hole in the counter on the sink in the 2nd bathroom and part of the kitchen counter by the sink was peeling off. We had very disruptive neighbors upstairs that we had to call security about 4 times. That is not Nicki’s fault and she did complain to management but they were unresponsive and it was hard for her to contact them with the time difference in Europe. The condo was priced very well but you don’t get the little upgrades the other condos we have stayed at have.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to comment. I am disappointed that you were not fully satisfied with your stay and had I known about the minor issues with the furnishing of the condo, I would have done my best to resolve them.

Nice, clean, well maintained unit.

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in several units in the past. This unit was a nice unit but on the average side. The main TV was small for a condo and the beds were a little lacking but overall a great unit and a great value.

Lovely stay at Bahama Bay as usual!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat visitors to Bahama Bay and desire hurricane Irma had a great time as usual. The apartment was well equipped, clean and perfectly located near to the club house, pools and splash pad for our toddler. We will definitely be returning to Bahama Bay and would rent this apartment again as it has everything we needed for a great family holiday.

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.
