About the Owner

My wife and I (Jackie) are very proud of what we own having worked hard for many years it is a real achievement to own such a lovely apartment in such a nice place. We have been married for 30 years and have two sons, Daniel who is currently studying for his PHD at Manchester and Martyn who is about to start Uni. Jackie works as a Teaching Assistant at an Infant School in Hampshire. I work for BP Shipping in support of the Oil Tanker Fleet.

When we have time off we make the most of it and love spending holidays either at Spain or our other property in Florida. Our main residence is at Hayling Island Hampshire where we have lived for 8 years. We love the islands community atmosphere and feel that we belong there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just back home yesterday from 2 weeks at Bahama Bay. Your condo was just as expected, spacious and luxurious. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, especially on the days spent at Bahama Bay to relax, away from the busy parks. The master bathroom is massive and the mirrors on 2 sides was an asset. Appliances all good particularly the fridge/freezer and washing machine and tumble drier which we made good use of. Enjoyed breakfast on the balcony most mornings and swimming at 8 am when the pool opened. We would definitely recommend to friends

Just a quick note to say just how much we enjoyed the stay at Bahama Bay. The apt was perfect,- lovely size, great beds, and well furnished. The pool was a great success with the kids, and the facilities were excellent. The staff at the site were very pleasant, very professional, and always accommodating- Please pass on our thanks to them.Great location for the parks etc. Altogether, a great success and we will pass on your name to anyone who asks!

Wonderful In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good experience staying in this condo, and at the Bahama Bay Resort. Communications with James were prompt and helpful when booking. We enjoyed the condo's spaciousness and privacy, plus the weather was in the 80s all but one day out of three weeks! The three patio doors let in ample light, and the screened-in patios allowed us to enjoy warm breezes day and night. All of our "neighbors" we're so nice and easy to get to know. The location is just minutes to parks and many nice restaurants. We look forward to returning.

Beautiful, peaceful condo near Orlando

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Jamieson's beautiful Bahama Bay Condo. George was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to our emails and questions. They made the Booking experience hassle-free.

Their place is a Grand and was one of the nicest units we saw on the property. The pictures don't do it complete justice. The Condo is very tastefully decorated and not the cheap furnishings that are common in so many rentals. The ceiling is very tall and the hallways are wider than normal to add to the rich effect.

The Condo was very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed our time at the beginning and end of the days just hanging out there or ending the day sitting on the patio listening to the water fountain from the nearby pond (keep an eye out for the Gator).The beds were very comfortable and their place had every amenity we required. We're hoping to return to Davenport and would love to stay here again!!

Thank you,

Walt & Celeste

A fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay at your Condo in Bahama Bay. The Condo is very well furnished and is a real home from home. Bahama Bay is a very well maintained resort with a number of pools and is a very relaxing location to unwind after the parks. We would definitely recommend this Condo and we plan to return in the future.

Amazing Stay at Bahama Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a two week stay. This is a fantastic huge apartment in a complex with lovely grounds and well kept gardens and pool areas. The aprtment is very clean, bright and very close to the poolside restaurant and beach area! The apartment has everything you need and is in such a great location for Disney, I Drive, Universal, shopping malls and many local restaurants! If youre looking for a perfect Orlando base to either relax by a pool or pound the parks then this place is ideal!

The property was as described with all amenities and comfort needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and the resort to others and have stayed there several times.All the local restaurants including Longhorn Steakhouse,The Olive Garden, and Chuys Mexican were excellent.

Location

From the Owner

We had originally decided to have a 4 bedroom villa built just off the 192, but was then invited to look at Bahama Bay. I was adamant that I would not be interested in a "condo" however I was totally blown away when I saw Bahama Bay. Our unit is a Grand Bahama which is the penthouse of the resort. We actually have more floor space than we would have had at the villa with an incredible 1729 square feet. Of course we also have all the added benefits of being on such a well kept tropical resort, with everything on hand from pools, bars or peaceful walks along the nature trail. When you put all of this together with the added bonus that we are so close to Disney, buying at Bahama Bay was the best decision I ever made.

Lakeridge Vinyards - about 20 mins up the US27 - nice little tour, wine tasting plus some good award winning wines to buy

Flights of Fancy - about twenty mins on the I4 (heading towards Tampa) - aircraft museum, very good World War 1 and World War 2 displays and you can take a ride in a bi-plane

Boggy Creek - always a relaxing ride in an air boat

Celebration is worth a visit too…. Have some food at the Market St Café or sit in the rocking chairs by the lake… Really relaxing.

Osprey Eco Tours at Cypress Lake is a must for any visitor.

Facilities

From the Owner

I think the best thing I can say about the added benefits that come with Bahama Bay would have to be it's location. Once you drive through the secure gates, you are totally away from all the hustle and bustle that you get at other locations. You can spend all day walking around theme parks or the endless shopping Malls and know that you have a nice and quiet location to return to. We quite often spend a day or so of our holiday never leaving the resort, simply laying by pools drinking cocktails and recharging batteries. With the added convenience of being able to eat in, or even go to the restaurant at the resort, (Tradewinds) you never have to go far. I often wonder what would have happened if I had proceeded to buy the 4 bedroom villa as intended. I consider that I had a lucky escape
