Reviewer: Yung Suk Bin Pittsburgh, PA,USA

Hi Kendall,
Happy new year!!!
I really enjoyed the stay at Bahama Bay.
I invited my friend's family to trip to Florida. Orlando was the first visit of our trip. The resort was very large, clean and well maintained.
Rooms were also very clean and comfortable. Staffs were very kind as well. My friend's family also were very pleased with the resort.
I'm really satisfied with the stay at Bahama Bay.
The only minor problem was the location. Since I came to Orlando at night, it was a little bit difficult for me to locate the resort. There were not many sign for the resort.
I appreciate your kindness.
regards,
Yung

Hi Kendall,
Thanks for your follow-up email. We had a great time at Bahama Bay over the Christmas break. The resort was clean, quiet, attractive and well-located.
The staff was welcoming, friendly and competent, and the apartment was clean and well-stocked.
We liked the restaurants, the pools and the playground for the kids, as well as the generously sized apartment rooms.
All in all we were very happy with our stay, and think that Bahama Bay stands above most all of the condo rentals we've done over the past several years in Florida.
Your booking service was prompt and professional as well. We'd be happy to come back!
Thanks again, Renee Laber, Nick Burnett and family

We had a great time. We really enjoyed staying at Bahama Bay. We will be back in the future.
2 things you might want to look at.
1. there is a gap under the front door and we had a friend one morning (a small bug) in the foyer. ( Gary, thank you for pointing this out I will get it rectified) 2. The carpet seemed to be a bit abused. stains) (Gary again i will get it deep cleaned, we do have a major spring clean programmed very soon)
I am sure that you have a lot of guests throughout the year and they don't take care of it like they would their own house.
Both are minor concern. We arrived at night and were surprised to wake up to an orange grove in back yard.
It was quiet at night unlike most hotels so getting a good nights sleep was not a problem.
Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your condo. We have and will continue to tell our friends about Bahama Bay. Bruce Smucker

Gary, We recently stayed at the resort and had booked through you. We really enjoyed the resort and would recommend it to our friends.
It was very clean and well maintained.
One small feedback is that the staff at the reception (excluding Matt), in particular one lady whose name we don't know was not very friendly or helpful. In fact we travel a lot and this was the first time where the attitude was a "don't care" attitude. Just thought we should let you know this. ( Gary,Sorry about this, I will forward this to my management company and try to find the culprit, it is unusual as most of our feedback is positive regarding the staff.)
Are you associated with any other similar condo resorts in Florida because we would be interested in the future.

Sailesh and Bijal

Kendal,
What can I say. We had a fantastic time and our 2005 holiday at Bahama Bay was very memorable.
As you know, we booked 4 separate apartments and were all delighted with them. It was like being home from home. They were well equipped, spotlessly clean and the location was excellent, close to the parks but just far enough away.
The site itself was lovely from the swimming pool and beach area to the club house and my only suggestion would be to add a pool table.( Gary I will look into that)
Although we did not use the Trade Winds Restaurant for dinner, we ate there a few times for lunch and the food was good if a little expensive.
Service was a little slow as there was only one person covering drinks and food. Not a problem on cooler days but on the hot days another pair of hands would have been good. (Gary more staff are available when we are busy )
All the staff we dealt with were very efficient and pleasant, from the Reception area to the cleaners. and I would have no hesitation in recommending Bahama Bay.
Kind regards
Linda

Dear Kendall,
We had an awesome holiday staying at Bahama Bay resort. The property is well planned, spotlessly clean and very well maintained.
We stayed in the 3-bedroom Abacus apartment. The apartment was fabulous - spacious, very well furnished, and clean.
In all, I highly recommend Bahama Bay resort to Orlando visitors, especially those travelling with kids. I am already planning to return to Bahama Bay with friends and family in 2006.

Hi kendal
just like to say what a great time we had.
could not believe the size of the grand bahama villa and how beautiful it was.
the staff in the resort were extremely nice and they could not do enough for you especially Nikon who was great.
you could not wish to stay anywhere nicer than this resort 5 star we could see the disney fireworks from are balcony which was nice after along day out at the parks.
inside the villa everything you would need is there and the resort has plenty to offer.
once the main entrance goes straight onto the 192 this will improve the accessibility of the resort.
we cannot wait to return and hopefully this will be in the near future.

We were so impressed with Bahama bay.
The apartment was large, very comfortable and packed with everything you could possibly need.It was spotlessly clean and just such a pleaure to come back to after a busy day of theme parks.
The resort itself was well looked after, all the staff could not be more helpful and the place just had a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
I have to say it was the first holiday I have booked over the internet and I was a bit nervous what I would find at the other end! I have to say it surpassed all my expectations and was incredibly good value for money.
I will recommend you whenever ever I can and if I ever find the strength to do disney again!!! I would only go if I could stay at Bahama Bay.
Thankyou for our great holiday.

Reviewer: Carl Mann UK

Small, dull, overlooked and very overcrowded, thats the worst thing about coming home, after staying in such a fantastic apartment. Before booking Bahama Bay, we looked through piles of holiday brochures, and looked at hundreds of hotels, villas and resorts on the internet, nothing came close to the style, quality and space of Bahama Bay. There was eight in our party, my husband and I, our four youngest aged 14/16/17/19, our 25 year old daughter and her husband.
It is very important to me that we have a family holiday every year, and as many of our children as possible come with us (we only left three at home). Even though we go together, usually we are split into several small hotel rooms. We didn't have that problem at Bahama Bay with our very, very large apartment.
We had more than enough space for everyone. The master bedroom with ensuite was ideal for my daughter and son-in-law, it gave them total privacy.
The staff at the resort were all very friendly, three of which stick in my mind. Pat, security on the gate, always made us feel special with his salute and thumbs up. Joe, waiter at the Tradewinds on our first night, was so friendly, always had a smile. Lastly we went to the shop on our first afternoon to get essential supplies (teabags & milk). My husband asked if we would like to go to the bar for a drink while we were there, which we did, as soon as we sat down the barman brought an ashtray to our table, my husband remarked about how quick we were given an ashtray, as though I looked desperate to have a cigarette. I told my husband that I hadn't brought my cigarettes with me as I thought we were only going to the shop. The barman came back to our table with his cigarettes and lighter and gave me one of his. I thought this was a very kind gesture (Sorry to the non-smokers I know its a disgusting habit). I can't praise Bahama Bay enough, but there is nothing I can say or no matter how many photos I have taken, will ever do the resort justice.
We don't usually holiday in the same place, but we are so impressed with Bahama Bay that we have decided that we are definately going back.
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.
Thanks Gary and Kendall.

Arrived home safe and sound yesterday and as promised I give some feedback below. Tell Gary it was really nice to see him in the resort and pass on mine and June's best wishes.
As you know we really love the place and are already looking at going back next year for another 3 weeks, June wants four


Just returned after 3 fantastic weeks at the Bahama Bay. We returned again this year to this resort as quite simply it's the best.
Stayed in the Andros two bed apartment and it was stunning and is probably bigger than my three bed semi her in the UK.
The resort itself is exceptionally well maintained and the view early morning over Lake Davenport just has to be seen.
The last of the building work is almost complete but it is well away from where you stay so has no effect at all.
All I can now say is I cannot wait till next time year when we will certainly return.

Kendall,
We had a great time staying at Bahama Bay.
The booking couldn't have been easier. Everything you said about this complex was true. It was excellent, really well maintained and the staff  were very helpful.
Four of us stayed in a two bedroom Andros apartment, which was really clean  and had everything you could want in a holiday home. If I was to be really critical, the only negative points I could make are:
1. Its location... A car is a must. While it is close to Disney, it is quite a drive to most other entertainment centres, i.e. Universal Studios,  International Drive, Kissimmee etc. ( Universal is 30 min away and we  always suggest  that a car is a must  Gary )  
2. There is still some building going on although it didn't seem to have  any negative impact on guests.( Gary, the building work is in the last phase and is all finished apart from internals, this will be all completed by Christmas and is very far away from the clubhouse and beach)  Overall, the Bahama Bay is a great place stay and I would strongly recommend  it.
 Regards, Jackie

Reviewer: Tripadviser UK

I stayed at the bahama Bay resort in August this year. One word......PERFECTION.
Myself,partner,mother in law and 2 kids sayed in the 3 bed Grand Bahama (penthouse!!!). The accomodation was superb. A huge double room with walk in wardrobe,en suite and jacuzzi bath. Another double room with another massive wardrobe and shared ensuite with the twin bedroom with another huge wardrobe!!. How much wardrobe space do you need!!!
The living room was so spacious,dining area and furniture was fantastic,huge kitchen and even bigger fridge,laundry room with washer and dryer. This was heaven. The carpet was even perfect, After a day walking around the parks,it was bliss to take off your shoes and walk on the very soft fluffy carpet. (sad i know!!)
The whole complex was so beautiful,we were in block 18 room and this over looked the huge lake. It was so beautiful to wake up in the morning and see that every day. Hot air balloons often floating along the lake,the early morning haze and the beautiful sunset. ( be warned...there are alligators in there but no signs to say so!!!)
Pool area was always cleaned every morning,beach are was lovely,jacuzzi's were quite hot but lovely once you get in. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The barman even went out his way to make me a cocktail he hadnt heard of. The restaurant satff are brilliant,they cant do enough for you. Even though the tips are included in the bill we always gave extra.
The bar at the club house isnt as nice as the bar at the tradewinds restaurant but is ok.
The secrity guard at the entrance is always smiling and you get a salute or thumbs up every time you go past.
The Bahama Bay is a little out of the way but worth the drive. As a travel agent i will sell this as much as i can....this is such a great place to stay and we will be going back in 2009. i would rate this as a 5* plus. Its perfect.

Dear Kendall;
I just wanted to let you know how happy we were at your property last July. I really meant to write to you as soon as we got back but our family was still with us until the first week in August.
We truly loved the resort and it could not have been more comfortable. The condition of the house was marvelous. There was nothing we needed that you didn't have. Before we left for the airport, I tried to wash all the sheets and towels but ran out of time. I think I needed to do one more batch.
The only think that I would suggest could help other tourists is the fact that the directions we were given were very confusing. I think there is a more simple way of getting to the resort from the airport. (Gary we are looking into a more direct route on our instructions)
My husband was the driver and quickly figured out a much easier way on getting to all the attractions. I think the first night, we arrived so late and then arriving during the night was difficult considering we were unfamiliar with the area. I will ask my husband to write a set of directions we think would work better to get to your place and I will email them to you.
Thank you so much for everything. If we get back to that area again we will definitely we would book with you again.
Sincerely.............Patti and Jim

Hi Kendall
We had a fantastic time at Bahama Bay and the apartment exceeded our expectations completely. We have previously stayed in private villas and the apartment was definitely in the same luxury league. Everything was spotless and immaculate, it almost felt like we were the first people to have stayed there! The welcome pack was much appreciated and it saved a lot of hastle by not having to go straight out again to get some basics.
On arrival we were given a pack of leaflets by the guy on the gatehouse, one of which was a tourist map that showed Bahama Bay. This was really helpful and would definately have been something we would have appreciated in advance.( Gary I will get a copy on my next visit and will send out with all future reservation details)
When we got there II realised I had forgotten the battery charger for my digital camera. I went and saw Glenn in the on-site photo shop and he helped me order one on-line and arranged for it to be delivered to his shop - all for no charge! - This was great service. We also purchased our Disney tickets at Bahama Bay and found this to be a good service.
We tried out all three pools, plus the children's pool and they were all great - my 3 yr old daughter especially liked the beach area where she could get covered in sand, then shower off and jump in the big pool.
The only down side was the fire alarm going off for about 5 seconds at 4am one morning - however mentioning it at reception the next day it had happened right across the complex so we didn't feel too picked on!!
When we left Bahama Bay to go to our next apartment in St Pete's Beach we wished we'd just booked the whole two weeks in Orlando - never mind there's always next time!!!

Hi,
We stayed in apartment 8801 during the above dates and just wanted to say we had a great time.
Bahama Bay is a beautiful place to relax and it wal also so easy to get to all the hustle bustle around the area.
Our apartment was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack which was delivered to us within an hour of arriving was very much appreciated and I thought it was a great way of making us feel very welcome.
This was our 10th visit to Florida but the first without any of the family and we wondered if we would enjoy it as much, well, we did, so much so that we are already talking about returning next year and we will definitely stay at Bahama Bay.

Dear Gary and Kendall
We had a lovely holiday at Bahama Bay. Thank you for dealing so efficently with our booking. Everything went off without a hitch. The directions you gave were fine but maybe best to say that you stay on the 192 for a few miles before seeing the sign for Haines City as the current wording hints that you come across this sign quite soon.
We were absolutely delighted with our accommodation and found it very spacious, well-furnished and exceptionally clean. It had every facility we could wish for (the only suggestion I would make is that a plug-in kettle would be better than the heat-on-the hob version but this is really a very minor point!) The resort itself was a really peaceful haven away from the busy parks and shopping malls. We particularly liked the little beach by the pool and lake and felt that it was great to chill out there.
We would love to go back some day and have no hesitation in recommending Bahama Bay to everyone. All age groups seemed to be having fun there and enjoying the Florida sunshine!

Dear Kendall and Gary,
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in your Andros condo. The resort is so well landscaped with all the amenities you could ask for.
The decor in the apartment was superb with all the comforts of home. The whole booking process was so easy on the web and the staff in the clubhouse were very helpful.
We took the Toll 417 to I4 to I27 route from Sanford (approx. 1.5 hours) and found the resort easily. The Walmart and Publix supermarkets are just around the corner and the restaurant on site proved useful after a long day at the parks.
We particularly liked the idea of our own apartment with it's privacy but the security of the Staff in the clubhouse, should we need them.
All in all, I couldn't fault the Bahama Bay. This was our first stay in the resort and without doubt, the best when visiting Florida. I've recommended your condo to friends and work colleagues and are now in the process of booking for next year.

Kendall and Gary,
We enjoyed our stay at Bahama Bay very much. I especially enjoyed the fact that, at least for now, it's away from the busier traffic areas and it was easy to make a quick trip to the grocery store or to do a little shopping.
As for the resort, check-in was quick and easy. The front desk personnel were professional and helpful in explaining procedures. The resort itself is a relaxing environment. The pools and entertainment areas were clean and neat. Our room was clean and prepared nicely when we arrived. The majority of everything we needed to prepare the meals we had in was present.
The website was helpful in preparing us for our visit. I printed out much of the info before our trip and used it to get us started with the vacation when we arrived. It was a good representation of what we found.
Overall, I was very pleased and would not hesitate to contact you again if we were to stay in the area again.

Dear Kendal,
just a line to say how wonderful Bahama Bay Resort was! It was clean, spacious and luxurious. We were unfortunate to be in Florida when it was the wettest June since 1968 but the fact that we could retreat to the tranquility of B. B. meant that our holiday wasn't marred so much.
The staff were very helpful and the pools were clean and had plenty of beds and tables and chairs. The appartments had everything you could need, with a TV in each bedroom, and the ice dispenser fridge made it all the more "American"! There were loads of Satellite TV channels - something we'd been worried about - and the Disney Parks were really, really close.
In fact, my sister was staying in the International Drive area at the same time and it was like visiting "Concrete City" when we went to her appartment. The view was of other similar appartments or hotels, the atmosphere was impersonal and they didn't have as many satellitle channels as we did. At B. B. it was tranquil, green and had that well manicured look which was a pleasant contrast from the hectic hours at the parks. B.B. also had a very friendly atmosphere and it was possible to enjoy the company of the other residents if you chose to spend the day at the resort instead of a theme park.
We would definately stay in one of your appartments again and can confidently advise anybody to do the same. The first day "welcome call" from you was nice too as it made us feel somebody out there cared!
Thanks again for a great stay at B. B. The Feld Family 2005

t
o Disney - spot on. Having Our family of four stayed at Bahama Bay for two weeks early July 2005 and it really was a fantastic place to stay. Would absolutely recommend it -lovely, lovely accommodation. This was our first trip to Florida and we were going to opt for a hotel on International Drive. Forget it!! Why get stuck in one bedroom for 2 weeks when you can have a family size house to roll around in. You'll definately appreciate the space and privacy if you are travelling as a family. We were in a beautiful "Andros" apartment at Bahama Bay. Two gorgeous bedrooms with their own bathrooms - ours had a huge walk in shower, double sink, jacuzzi-size bath. The kitchen was immaculate - I don't think anything had ever been used in it - or maybe thats just the upkeep of the place. Both bedrooms had televisions with satellite. And for the mummys out there - the laundry room just off the kitchen with washing machine and tumble dryer meant I didn't return home with two weeks worth of washing. The living room was very comfortable with a pull out bed that our two kids opted to sleep on so they could crash in front of the TV, DVD, Hi-Fi. We're not talking Costa Brava pull out bed here - we are talking very, very comfortable double-bed. I know some people may think the staff rude perhaps but we had no experience of this at all - we didn't really see them that much because we were out and about each day - one persons intrusiveness is another persons friendly - right?? If you need something they'll help you out. They were as friendly as any restaurant/bar staff in the UK. One thing that was really helpful was we were escorted to our condo on arrival by a lovely man called Nixon. He showed us maps of the local area, told us about the resort, shopping nearby, etc. Very nice man and very helpful especiallly for us first-timers. The security guy is a laugh - thumbs up every time you pass. Drawbacks??? None really just be careful - we had a ground floor condo - you could get a 2nd or 3rd floor one and I wouldn't fancy a hike up the high stairs after running round the theme parks all day. And don't be put off by the drive down the 192 to the resort - you might think oh no we're out in the sticks but you really, really aren't at all. Five mins and you are in the thick of shops and restaurants and really only 15mins somewhere lovely and quiet to return to after a busy day or even just to have a day off relaxing it perfect. The swimming pools and whirlpools stay open to after 10pm - the water was nice & warm. Poolside bar means you can have a little nightcap while the kids relax. Also - check out the deck and the man-made beach at the lake edge behind the Tradewinds restaurant on the site - its really pretty and peaceful. One final thing - the signpost of Bahama Bay is teeny-tiny (don't know why) but just look out for the Davenport Estates sign and you know to turn down this exit for Bahama Bay. Thats it - hope you enjoy your holiday

Hi
This is just to say that Bahama Bay is so easy to find.
Travel West on the Interstate 4, Turn right at 64B onto the US192 heading west, left onto the US27 heading south and its about 5mins drive along on the right hand side. The road you need it Florence Villa Grove Road and the estate its on (this you will see from the US27) is marked Lake Davenport Estates.
You really cant miss it so ignore the feedback on this site about the place being hard to find. We travelled from Sanford Airport and it took about 1 hour 20mins.
Bahama Bay itself is superb. We stayed in a 2 bedroomed 2 bathroomed condo. It was huge. Its a great resort, friendly helpful staff and the restraunt Tradewinds was lovely. The waitresses there took a shine to our little girl who had just turned one and they certainly took the stress out of eating out with a little one. Thank you, especially to Ludmilla.(see feedback below to offset Gary)
Bahama Bay is a really good base for seeing Florida. 25 mins to Disney, 1.5 hours to Daytona Beach and the same to Clearwater. Highway 192 has all the restraunts that International Drive has and the start of it s only 5 mins away.
Thank you Bahama Bay for a lovely holiday, if we had the money we would buy one of the apartments that are currently being built. We loved it and hope to return in a couple of years.
Thank you,
Richard, Trisha, Jack and Poppy.

Hi, Feedback on the apartment and resort.
The resort was fantastic in terms of the high quality etc, and the apartment was great as well. Pity the 3rd bedroom had no tv, that was murder for me having been consigned to it as the only single guy in a party of 5 ( 2 older married couples) plus me. (The Gran Bahama unit has 3 TV units I would have thought that would have been ok while on holiday Gary)
The tradewinds was a surprise, the first visit the food was great, the second visit was even better, but our 3rd visit was a bad experience, slow service and the food was cold and under cooked. We got it sorted with the Manager at the time but it certainly meant we did not choose to dine there again. (This seems to be a problem I need to sort out, we either get great reviews, see above, or bad, can only be down to staff on certain nights, will investigate with the General Manager Gary)
One last negative was the absurd closing time at the pool at the Main Clubhouse, to make everyone head for the pool at the tradewinds so close to the lake and all the mosquitoes is something that should be looked at. (this is the first time  I have heard of this, maybe this is so that they only have to man one bar, it would not make a lot of difference with the mosquitoes if you were at the restaurant pool or the clubhouse one, they do fly around, this is a problem in all of Florida and at certain times of the year are worse than others but The Resort has got a very good prevention program, spraying and sonic scarers  which seems to keep the numbers down Gary)
Other than that we have been signing the apartment and the resorts praises to all and sundry since our return on Saturday 2nd July.

Mark

Hi Kendall,
Sorry for the late response. To say that we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Bahama Bay Resort would truly be an understatement. The place that we stayed at was very clean,spacious and bright. From the three swimming pools to the two bars,resturant, and beach it really is a resort experience.
As for the few negative things I heard about finding the resort and location I found it quite easy to find and the fact that it was off the main road I thought that was good in the fact that the traffic was bearable. In finishing I can say for a fact that on our next trip to Orlando, we will definetly be giving you a call.

The Booking €“ I had made enquiries with travel agents about a booking at the Bahama Bay but it seemed a bit to expensive on the agents price per person and so I looked at the Bahama Bay Website and decided to book with an owner. I submitted the enquiry and literally minutes later received a phone call from Gary with all the details. This was followed up with relevant emails about the apartment. The booking was made smoothly and with no problems whatsoever. So that€™s got to be 10\10 !
Travel €“ If your going to put a trip together yourself I€™d recommend Travel City Direct for a fly\drive. Good seat pitch €“ enough leg room for me at just over 6 ft tall and complimentary drinks throughout the flight
The Apartment €“ All I can say about this is that it was superb! We chose to stay in a Grand Bahama €“ 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms sitting area full kitchen utility room. More than enough room for our party of 6 adults (if you can call my kids and their partners adults €“ I sometimes wonder)
The apartment was spotlessly clean and in a great location overlooking the lake and woodland. Everyone on the site was friendly and I wouldn€™t hesitate to go back to the resort. I really can€™t fault the place another 10\10 for me.
Location €“ The location is excellent with numerous restaurants nearby and just a short drive to all the Disney parks and shopping areas.
Top Tip €“ This is my top tip taking into account the vast size of the road networks in this area and the fact that I have the navigation skills of an amoeba. Upgrade to Sat Nav on your hire car. You may think these things are gimmicky but once you€™ve taken a wrong turn in America you€™ll soon see the benefit of these devices. Worth every penny imho.
We had a fantastic holiday and would thoroughly recommend both the Bahama Bay Resort and the service offered by Gary and Kendall.
Thanks very much!

Hello Kendall/Gary
Just a line to give you some feedback on our recent holiday. As you know, we went with our son Matt, wife Tracy and their two children Lucy and Ben (8 and 5 years old. The Grand Bahama (1416) apartment was ideal for us and so very spacious. We all loved the decor, the amenities and the balconies which were big enough to sit out on (and listen to the frogs in the lake at night!!!).
We found the Resort OK but definitely think the Beeline Highway and then down on Highway 4 to the 27 is a more direct route and it is possible to do that in 30 mins. It would be far easier as well for guests arriving on a night flight. (we will update our directions, Gary) We found the Resort very convenient to get to all the Theme Parks and it was lovely to get away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando and return to the peace of the Resort with its lovely beach and lakeside setting. We enjoyed our meals at The Tradewinds restaurant and found the service good. (see emails below about service to equal out, Gary)
Unfortunately, we were disappointed not to have a Welcome Pack on arrival but although you said you ordered it, the front desk said they had no record of it. Never mind! (this was a mistake at the resort and was our first one missed Gary) Everything else in the Apartment exceeded expectations - we thought the finish was superb and it was good to have our own washing machine and drier (but would add that it may be a good idea to tell guests it is not necessary to wash sheets and towels towards end of vacation - as we did! ) Must say it was lovely to have plenty of good quality, good size towels - so often it is an item that is skimped on and it is a low cost item so is a silly mistake.)
The pools and jacuzzies were all cleaned daily and well maintained. As we were leaving the children's paddling pool was really taking shape and all the paving around and shrubs/trees were planted. All that was left to do was to tile the inside of the pool and fill it with water. Also had climbing frames nearby and I think it will prove to be a very popular area.
The restaurants that we found to be extremely good value and comfortable were The Olive Grove, Key W Kools, Angus Steak House and, of course, The Sizzler.
We had an evening flight on the leaving day so we were able to pay $40 to extend the use of the room until 3pm which was helpful.
All in all - a most enjoyable stay and it was better than being in a private villa because the grandchildren had other children to play with when we spent a day at the Resort. When we return to Orlando we will definitely return to Bahama Bay - thank you!
Best regards Kate and Tony Green (West Sussex)

What can I say, fabulous resort and accommodation, will be sure to highly recommend it and yourselves.
The resort itself was clean, beautifully laid out and well kept, the on-site staff were all helpful and very polite.
Accommodation was lovely. Couldn't fault it at all, its the first time I've returned from holiday with no washing ...... which sounds 'sad' but it made a big difference having the laundry room! Everything was there that you needed to make the holiday run smoothly.
The only thing that spoilt it was the morning we we were packing to leave we have 2 or 3 people knocking on the door around 9am asking if we were going. 10am is quite early to check out anyway and when you have a 3 year old to sort out too, the last thing you need is to be badgered to leave the apartment.( 9 am is very early and I will discuss this with the management, it could be that they had a large amount of checkouts on that day and needed to get a lot cleaned in a short amount of time ,but you can request a late checkout to 11am  at no cost or a late one as above for an extra cost, Gary) However, on the whole the holiday was fabulous and I would highly recommend it (you that is).
Thanks once again. Kind regards Emma

Hi, Kendall!
Just returned from our trip to Bahama Bay and wanted to fulfill your request to give you a report on the accomodations.
First of all, thanks for being responsible and trustworthy. It is gratifying doing business with people with your work ethic. We were welcomed warmly, Our apartment was decorated nicely, it was clean, and it was well equipped. I think the resort itself could stand to be landscaped a little better, (Lots of our guests think the resort is beautifully landscaped, Gary) but when you go to Orlando to visit the theme parks, you don't really hang around the resort too much.
The only problem we had was that when we arrived in Orlando we went to the 3050 Michigan Avenue Kissemme address thinking we had to go there to register and pick up the key. That was a large waste of time and we were very upset- with ourselves, not you. Upon reading the Welcome Pack you sent us more thoroughly, we realized you had given us the address we needed to go to. I just had it in my mind that that was where we were staying, but that we had to pick up the key at the 3050 Michigan Ave.address. So, this was really the only problem we had and we created the problem for ourselves. Totally our mistake. (always look at the paperwork we send! all our guests pick up the keys at the Resort.Gary)

Anyway, we didn't let that keep us from having a great time. Thanks again.

Kendall,
We hand a brilliant holiday in Florida!
<The accommodation, booking process and resort were 'First Class' with easy access to the major attractions, shops and restaurants. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday. The essential shopping items left for us was very much appreciated after a long flight.
The only minor negative point I can make. Is noise from the AC units outside the bedrooms (No double glazing). Which may effect light sleepers. (This is only on the ground floor Andros units and is my first complaint but I will see what we can do, they have been landscaped with shrubs to help, and as they get bigger will help to reduce the noise Gary )
However, I can not recommend the Trade Winds restaurant. The food and service was very average and expensive. They also included a 15% service charge automatically.( see email above, as some people love the restaurant, I will publish the menu on my site soon to let people see the prices, they seem competitive  to me. Gary)

I will stay at the Bahama Bay on my next visit to Florida.

Hi Kendall

 We have recently returned from Bahama Bay and I must say I was very pleased with our choice to stay there.

 I found the accomodation to be of an excellent standard, spacious, well equiped, clean & well maintained. We had a couple of minor things with the apartment , a loose door handle for example, but these were attended to very quickly by the staff on site. The building work on the site was a little noisy and, if we had been spending all day by the pool then we might of been a bit disappointed, but all in all it did not detract from the holiday.(90% of the building work has been completed and is nowhere near the pools or beach, Gary)

 The staff were generally pretty helpful particularly the guy in the clubhouse bar area although the people in the information area did not seem particularly knowledgable about local restaurants to recommend etc. We ate at the onsite restaurant only once whilst we were there and the food was ok but not 5 star standard. I was a bit disturbed when the waitress was trying to serve my wife dessert from their selection while I was still eating my main course. They did not really seem to care whether we were all on the same stage of the meal and wanted to rush us along although it was not particularly busy. (I will speak to the restaurant manager to discuss this soon, Gary)

 The pools were clean and well maintained and seemed pretty safe for the kids, who enjoyed them thoroughly. My 8 year old son who found the saluting security guard on the gate very entertaining although I was a bit surprised to find that the security seemed to stop at around 11 and if we returned to the complex after this time the barriers wer open and no guard to be seen. (the guard will leave the barrier open while he does his rounds, Gary) These are only minor niggles and my family & I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Bahama Bay and found it a good base for the usual Disney attractions. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Bahama Bay to any family wishing to visit the Orlando area.

Hi Kendall
Our stay at Bahama Bay was fantastic the Apartment was very nice spotlessly clean, we were able to choose the position of the apartment by looking on your web site which enabled us to be where right where we wanted, Our apartment was right by the pool which ment our sons had the freedom to go off to the pool when ever they liked without being too far away, we were also close to the Trade winds restaurant which we used frequently after a hard day at the parks this also ment we did not need to get back in the car. Bahama Bay was quite and beautifully presented. There were lots of other families there so the the children made lots of new friends. we will definitely be back for another visit. Kind regards

Dear Gary/Kendall
Booking direct with you was easy.Thank you for your welcome pack prior to our departure. We found the information useful.
You never know what to expect when you book direct however Bahama-Bay Resort was everything we hoped for.
My wife, son and I booked a two bedroom Andros which was excellent - clean, spacious and very well equipped. It was a real home form home. Our son especially like having his own room,TV and bathroom. The screened terrace meant we could enjoy a drink outside without being bitten. The welcome food pack was very much appreciated as we arrived in the evening.
We liked the fact that it was easy to get to both Disney and Universal theme parks from the 192 or I4, but when you did not want to visit a park the resort was an ideal setting for relaxing. It was peaceful, very clean and the grounds were lovely and well kept. There were three pools and plenty of sun beds. The views from the pool beside the lake were lovely. We however used the pool nearest our condo.
My son is a powerlifter so he made good use of the gym.
We ate in the restaurant the second night and the food was very good. The staff were efficient and friendly.
In fact all the staff we came into contact with, from the clubhouse to the security person at the gate house, were friendly and helpful. (see email below Gary )
There were supermarkets near by and a variety of eating places on the 192. All in all we had a wonderful holiday in a great location. We will certainly have no hesitation in recommending Bahama-Bay to friends and family. It was so much better than staying in a hotel as we did on our previous visit to Florida. We will definitely return.

Hi Kendall,
 We had a wonderful time at Bahama Bay! Your company did a fabulous job with the booking as well as providing us with an excellent condo. It was really nice and we had more than enough room for six people. We appreciated the small details that were provided like coffee/tea packets, dish soap, bin liners etc. The beds and linens were wonderful too!
 The location was nice because it was quiet and peaceful and away from the theme park crowds. The grounds were beautiful and everything was very well maintained. Your directions were perfect
The only thing I was disappointed with was some of the front desk staff. Some of them weren't very friendly and I felt like we were imposing when asking questions. On the day we checked out, there were more than six or seven people waiting in line at the front desk with only one person working.
There were several other people behind the desk just visiting so several people were a little upset.Gary ( see email above to equal out, we don't normally have a problem but must of been a very busy day and I will look into it )

 Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay and I have told everyone how nice it was. I will definitely book through your company again. I appreciate all your help and professionalism! Thank you, Michelle Irvin

What a wonderful vacation we had!! We have done nothing but rave about the Bahama Resort since we returned. Arriving at midnight, we were not sure what to expect. What a delight to find security and registration both available and willing to assist us in any manner. The condo was absolutely beautiful and spacious! With four children it afforded us all the opportunity to move around and have our own space when we needed it. Imagine our surprise when we opened the refrigerator and found that it had been stocked with staples for the next day. What a wonderful treat to not have to run out early in the morning for juice, milk, cereal, etc. The pool and beach areas were wonderful. Never too crowded. Everyone was very friendly. The location was also great. Off the beaten path so you really feel you are in a tropical paradise, but close to stores and all of the major attractions. We will be back again. Thanks for a great stay! Jim and Patti O'Mara

After staying at Bahama bay for 16 days, we would recommend the place to anyone.
When we walked in we could not have imagined how great it was. It was home from home with all the added €œwow factor€ feelings you would get from a 5 star hotel and resort.
Everything that Gary had promised was there. The whole complex was clean, tidy and well looked after at all times. The staff were friendly and helpful. The kids loved the place, especially the enormous bathroom and 100 television stations.
Jane loved the washing machine and tumble dryer and the fact that we came home with almost all clean clothes. (No piles of washing to do when you get home) Bahama Bay is in an ideal location for Disney. On a good day, if the traffic is flowing, you are on the Disney roads within 15 minutes of leaving Bahama bay and all the parks are easy to get to from there. We only used the swimming pool by the restaurant but would say that it was always warm and clean, even when it was raining. Make sure you read all the bits that Gary sends you as things like short cuts to Disney are a must to know.
The first thing we did when we got home was to book it for next year. That should tell you how much we enjoyed our holiday.

The 3weeks we spent at the Grand Bahama apartment were absolutely wonderful.The booking arrangements via the internet with Gary were dealt with on a very professional and informative way.The directions to the resort were very accurate apart from the final signpost to the Bahama Bay which is easily missed in the evening.The distance and times to the attractions and airport were also good although time needs to be added for heavy traffic.A member of the reception staff showed us to and around our penthouse apartment which was absolutely stunning with luxury furnishings and every appliance and utensil you needed.The view over the orange groves was very peaceful and secluded with no noise at all.The wrap around balcony with private access from all rooms was superb.The restaurant/bars and swimming pools were to a very high standard with views overlooking the lake.The beach area which had luxury sun loungers with canopies was stunning and the heated swimming pool and hot tubs were very warm.All staff within the resort were extremely pleasant and helpful at all times.There was also easy access to both Publix and Walmart an approximate ten minute drive at the most.I hope we have the pleasure of spending another vacation at this five star resort which I am sure as it grows can only get bigger and better.

Hi As promised, here's some feedback from us - we really did have a great time. We rented 2 x Andros apartments for 2 x families of 4, for 10 days. The standard of accommodation was excellent - clean, spacious, with a modern decor and extremely well equipped. The welcome pack was particularly appreciated arriving at 10.30 in the evening after a day's travelling with small children - what a nice touch! We felt that Bahama Bay was a good base to visit not only Walt Disney World and the Universal parks but also the many other attractions that Orlando has. The apartments were definitely full of home comforts - a nice touch when you come back from a long day in one of the theme parks. We would, without doubt, consider staying at Bahama Bay again when we revisit in a couple of years' time - I only hope that the standards are maintained. My only regret, or sadness, is that because our time in Orlando was so busy (perhaps we should have gone for the fortnight and not the ten days) we were not able to make full use of the facilities at Bahama Bay, ie the swimming pool, fishing facilities, paddle boats, beach, gym, kids' cinema, etc. One small complaint - the running machine was out of order on the 2 x occasions I did find time to visit the gym. The tennis court was nearly finished and this will, I am sure, become a well used additional facility. All in all it was a very enjoyable holiday - and we would all thoroughly recommend Bahama Bay to any-one visiting Orlando. Gary was particularly helpful in providing me with information before booking - and keeping us informed along the way. Hope this is useful - if you need anything else then let me know. I don't know if you keep a 'mailing list' as such, but we would be keen to receive any future mailings / e-mails from you about Bahama Bay (special offers / new facilities added, etc, etc) as and when they come up. Thanks again for your help - much appreciated. Helen (and family).

Dear Kendall and Gary, We had a wonderful time at Bahama Bay, during our April vacation 2005. Our condo was very spacious. My husband and I were there alone and our children had planned on camping with their grandparents. Once they saw how much room we had, we had to encourage them to stay with their grandparents. We also liked the options of different pools. While we were there, we kept thinking how much our children would have enjoyed the pool with the beach, as well as the clubhouse pool. It's obviously family oriented, yet without our children, we easily enjoyed some alone time. I had a wonderful massage. She worked hard at getting rid of the tension in my shoulders and back, and I felt very relaxed when I left. Although we went out to dinner a couple times, we also enjoy cooking, With the grocery store so close, and appropriately stocked kitchen, we had some nice dinners sitting in the screened in porch, and didn't have to go out for every meal. Our vacation goal was to do nothing, but recharge our batteries. We have very busy lives and needed R&R. However, we worked out in your gym, sunbathed by the pool, went to the movies, went to dinner and Downtown Disney. This is a perfect place to do anything and nothing, which ever you prefer. Booking was easy and accurately represented the accommodations. We have already recommended it to our friends. Thanks again for everything, Jacqui and Michael

Hi there, We had a fantastic holiday, thanks for asking. Feedback for the site:- We had a 3 bedroomed apartment overlooking the lake which was very spacious and comfortable, and spotlessly clean when we arrived. We very much appreciated the welcome pack of food after lots of hassle at the airport with the hire car! The apartments have everything you need and are a real home from home. The resort is beautiful, probably one of the best in the area. The pool areas were always clean and we never had a problem getting a sunbed, even later in the day. The Publix supermarket is only 5 mins away and has everything you need, and there are plenty of restaurants on the 192 not far away. There are also Domino's and chinese takeaways nearby who deliver to your door. Probably my only negative comment regarding the resort is that the service in the restaurant is very slow, we ate there the second night and never went back again for dinner. I don't think they have enough staff. It's a shame because the food was good and they sometimes have entertainment as well. We did eat lunch a couple of times in the restaurant and the service was a bit better, and the food great and plenty of it. All in all we were extremely happy with the resort and would definitely stay there again if it wasn't for the fact that we loved Florida so much that we are in the process of buying our own villa there.

The entire set up was great from Patrick the guy who greeted us at the security gatehouse all the way through the entire week. The condo was excellent and we really had erthing we needed to enjoy the holiday. I liked the fact that although we were close to all the "fun" at Disney and Universal the Bahama Bay Resort has enough distance from Rte 192 that you have the option to chill out at the pool or get into all the fun at the parks. The whole experience was great and very easy from the booking all the way through to departure.

we had a great holiday in Florida, we think it's the best place on earth for a holiday as there's so much to do - and although we can get by with French and Spanish - it is easier when the language is the same. The shopping is just fantastic! On piece of vital infomation we did not have was the full postal address. We had hassle with our visa-waiver form with the Customs officials on tring to enter the country because the only address I had was Bahama Bay Resort, Orlando, Florida. They eventually let us through as we showed them all the info I had printed, with the maps, as I promised I would report back to you that this information must be provided to all your guests. They need to put a zip code on the visa-waiver form."On all the welcome packs we send out the full address of the apartment and resort including the zip code are included , maybe this guest just overlooked this on the paperwork

 I dealt with the booking - I was very pleased with the service, it could'nt have been easier. So much better than dealing with Travel Agents. Being able to look at your website was also excellent - nothing is hidden.

The apartment was very nice, the bathrooms were huge, the beds were comfortable. The welcome pack was an extra we did'nt expect - and was welcomed - we had breakfast on the first morning without having to go shopping. The bars of soap were appreciated too. We also used the telephone many times and meeting up with my father-in-law would not have been possible if the phone number for the apartment had not been supplied beforehand. He lives in Tarpon Springs and has no telephone, we bought him a mobile but he broke it!

Gary, Just returned from our vacation 3 days ago and wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time. The condo was comfortable, spacious and immaculate. We did quite a bit of cooking there and the only thing I could suggest is the purchase of a non-stick saute pan. " I have put these in before but they have been stolen, so I just have the standard pots and pans, sorry Gary "That would have been very helpful. We had a lovely massage at the spa which I would recommend very much, as well as taking advantage of buying park tickets at the resort, as it saved us time. Unfortunately the weather left a little to be desired, but the resort was lovely and overall we had a very nice time. I enjoyed the fact that the resort was private and out of the way, it felt like our little oasis away from the heavy traffic on 192. When returning to the Orlando/Kissimmee area we will definately stay at the Bahama Bay again.

Just returned from our holiday at the Bahama Bay Resort in Florida and it was the perfect place to be. I am quite proud of myself for finding this oasis in what can be a very hectic and draining experience, the family vacation. We not only took the family but also girlfriends and grandchildren. We had thought about renting a home but decided we loved our family too much to be that close ,if you know what I mean. So we rented two condos next to one another. Needless to say it was the greatest trip we have taken to date. Everything is within arms reach, pool, food , relaxation! It is a beautiful,clean and caring resort that is close to grocery stores, Walmart,and restaurants all less then 2 or 3 miles in either direction and a easy drive to Disney, Sea world, Discovery Cove, Universal etc...

Gary,
First I want to tell you that the condo was absolutely great. The price was not much more than a small hotel room, but provided me all of the accomodations of home. When I first arrived at the condo, I was pleasantly surprised at how roomy it was. The multiple televisions and multiple rooms made it easy for my wife and I to have a great time and not have to worry about our son keeping us up (or us keeping him up). Multiple bathrooms & showers made it easy to get the family going in the morning. The place looked spotless and even the cooking items (pots, pans) were amazingly clean. The netted in balconies allowed us to enjoy a cocktale in the cool evening without bug being a problem. I would strongly recommend this for a large family or 2 small families looking to vacation for a few days in the Disney area.
My only complaint is minor. The pool by the room was not heated (the heater was broken). While this made a great place to soak my sore ankle, the temperature was not ideal for swimming in March. Because there are several pools on the property, we made due with another pool. I saw in the reviews that someone else commented on this, but the property management has not rectified it yet. The only other suggestion I could make for the property/ condo is maybe to add a pizza pan to the list of cooking items.
Now, for those who are thinking about using your condo, I would like to add some nice features: First, the proximity to Disney World is great. I measured the trip in busy traffic and it took me 17 minutes to go from the condo to the base of Disney World (Route 192 & the Parkway to Disney). In morning traffic, it took only 10 minutes. We literally left the condo at 8:25 and we were in the park by 9:00 (including parking & walking). The best part is you can go to Disney without going on Interstate 4. If you have ever driven I 4 in Orlando, you know what a parking lot it can be. For those who want to enjoy Spring Training, the proximity to various sites (Winterhaven, Lakeland, etc) is a matter of a quick drive down US 27 and a short trip on I - 4. Overall, Gary, we had a great time and plan on staying there again next March (if not Novemeber - trip pending). I will keep you posted on dates. Matt Smith

Kendall and Gary---We had a wonderful time at Bahama Bay. Unit 11306 was more than we thought it would be. The staff was helpful and courteous at all times. We'd like to thank you for accommodating our wish to stay longer. We would certainly stay with you again. Looking forward to seeing the new entrance off SR192. PS---Any way of updating the cyber cafe? While there it had only 1 working computer most of the time and for 2 weeks there were no internet cards to be purchased. I finally figured out I could drive 5 min. to the public library on 192 just off 27 (Publix Mkt) and use theirs for an hour for free. Future guests might like to know this. Thanks again for everything The Wilburns

Kendall/Gary- Thanks for asking for feedback. We had a wonderful time at the resort. The two bedroom was very spacious and comfortable for 4 adults and a baby. The facilities at the resort were great. We had lunches and dinner at the restaurant and spent one full day at the spa. The pools were heated and had a great atmosphere, we even tried fishing on the dock! The resort definitely has a lot to offer, it's a shame that most people have not heard of it in the Orlando area - so maybe more advertising! The only suggestions I have was that we arrived late at night and since there are no visible signs on 27, it would help if the directions you sent, had mile markers so we can look for the road to turn on. We drove quite a bit before realizing, we must have passed it. The other thing was it would be great if you had a few menus in the apartment of the places that are nearby and/or can order delivery from as the front desk was not very helpful, in general. Same for the golf courses in the area, although we found them on our own, eventually. Other than that, everything was fantastic and I would definitely return to Bahama Bay the next time I am in the area. Thank you so much! Anju

Dear Gary and Kendall, Thank you so much for your prompt, courteous, and help with our reservations for Bahama Bay in March 05. We had a fantastic time and when we return we will ONLY stay at Bahama Bay. It was so beautiful - much nicer than we expected. We are so happy with the service and the accommodations we are not sure were to begin! The rooms were gorgeous and super clean. The orange grove behind our room made the air smell delicious, the pools were super clean and warm, and the white sand from the beach was stunning (the website does not have the ability to do the resort justice!!!) The food at the restaurant was yummy and the staff was friendly. We purchased attraction tickets at the front desk, which saved us time and money, and the staff was very knowledgeable about local attractions and directions. Everyone we have dealt with has been helpful and very nice! Initially we were frightened /hesitant to make reservations through a non-local contact but every fear / hesitation we had was put to rest by the prompt and helpful correspondence we received. We were also nervous because we had read a few unfavorable comments about the resort (even though there were more favorable responses than unfavorable) -we decided that the people who placed the negative responses are CRAZY! Every part of our experience from the initial email to the day we left was extraordinary. Any one of the 6 adults would be more than happy to tell anyone about our experience and how wonderful our trip was so please do not hesitate to have people contact us! We have two suggestions: 1: The driving directions were a little difficult to follow (at one point the directions from Orlando Airport stated that we should go south but the only option was east or west) and once we turned onto 192 the directions said to look for the brick wall and then the white letters- the only problem is we arrived after it was dark which made it difficult to see the wall and we could only see the white letters after we had passed the turn off. Also it might be a good idea to warn people who are from small communities that the driving time from the airport may be considerably longer if they arrive during rush-hour traffic (it took us over an hour because of traffic) - All of this was very minor but it may help people with their expectations if the directions are more clear. 2: We are not sure how you would go about doing this but if possible, It may be a good idea to find a way to advertise the resort in additional/ different ways through the Internet. (Possibly advertising under hotel listings?) Upon our initial search we did a general search for hotel / suites or double rooms to accommodate the six of us and we did not find anything that great. It was only after we did a search for a room for 8 people that an advertisement for a condo came up and lead us in your direction - I cannot tell you how many people I have talked to that did not know about the condos that are available- anyhow the resort is so great I think it is a shame that more people do not know about it!

The resort was beautiful and clean and the apartment was spacious and well appointed. The resort was close to grocery stores and restaurants (2 Publics and a new Wal-Mart only a mile away) and yet felt peaceful and off of the beaten track.
We had a couple of cold days yet the pool was comfortable and warm and there were even a couple of families swimming when it was in the 50€™s.
Traveling up and down the 192 can be a bit slow so we just planned our trips away from peak hours. We discovered a handy little short-cut, particularly if you are visiting Animal Kingdom, by turning left on Black Lake Road (past the Orange Lake Country Club Resort) and following it to the end and then turning left on Sherberth Road, which takes you almost directly to the entrance of the Animal Kingdom.
We have stayed hotels and resorts both on and off the Disney property and I would have to say that our stay at Bahama Bay was the most relaxing so far. We would highly recommend the resort for any one who is travelling to Orlando or Disney and would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends.
We are looking forward to our next visit.

Kendall,
We had a fantastic holiday at Bahama Bay, so much so that we have bought a place there!!!
The resort was really well maintained and we really liked the fact that there was a security guard at the gate and that you could collect your key from reception as opposed to having to drive to an alternative location.
The apartment was lovely and really spacious everything was in excellent condition and the kitchen was well equipped, having kids meant that we wanted to do a lot of cooking and that certainly wasn't a problem. The other thing that I was impressed with was the number of towels, the amount of times I have been somewhere and had insufficient towels or towels that were so small my husband couldn't wrap them around him!!! However here there was an abundance of towels for use after a shower as well as towels to use by the pool, which meant I didn't have to pack any (more room for shopping!!).
The resort was quite close to Disney and we were advised that Disney will soon be opening a new entrance will cut the journey time down significantly. We also discovered a fantastic Indian takeaway around the corner which opened while we were there, they even delivered.
All in all we had a great holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the resort to anyone especially those with a family as it gives you all the benefits of a Villa with all the facilities of a hotel which meant entertaining the children was never an issue.
You handled our booking well and it was a pleasure to deal with Gary, he always made you feel that it was no problem dealing with your questions, I really appreciated the call to the villa to check that everything was ok, and felt that if there had been a problem he would have dealt with it immediately.
I look forward to speaking to you again soon.

Gary, My wife Jean & I spent 10 days ( 2/6-2/16 ) in a 3 bedroom unit which was well appointed and very comfortable. The resort was very quiet and just like the website represented in the pictures.
We found it very convenient to shopping ( a publix market one mile away) and only 3 miles from a great golf course Highland Reserves. We found every variety of restaurant within a 15 minute drive on route 192 or another 15 minutes away up route 4 on International drive . We were also only 6 miles from the Disney resort which we visited one afternoon.
My wife who does not play golf really enjoyed the weight room and the lovely area in the resort to take walks especially down near the lake which abuts the property. We had brunch at the on site restaurant twice on Sunday and enjoyed dinner there Superbowl night. The food was well prepared and moderately priced.
I played golf every day and having arranged tee times with the course in advance. As a single they were very accommodating and I had a chance to meet some great people from all over the world. I was able to buy a 10 round pass for $500 which included the cart. The course was very fare and interesting with large greens that had lots of undulations and were fast. One of the highlights for me was the chance to play with a women and her husband who had been injured in an accident and lost her right arm. She was one of the finest golfers man or woman I have every had the pleasure to play with. It was unbelievable and inspiring how well she played ( she shot 38 on the front side just missing 2 birdies on the difficult par 5's) considering she did not take up the game until AFTER her accident.
We we blessed with great weather ( 10 days of 70-80 degree tempetures) and hated to leave. The staff was helpful and keep the entire facility very clean. Our experience was wonderful and the only sad part was that we had to leave to come home to Connecticut and winter again. We would recommend Bahama Bay to our friends and anyone looking for a nice place convenient to everything and modestly priced. Thanks again for everything Don Marra

Hello Gary, We enjoyed our stay at Bahama Bay resort very much. The only problem that we had with it was that it was not 3.5 miles from Disney as advertised and that it was really difficult to see the sign to go to Bahama Bay from the highway."Gary a new road from the 192 will be in at the end of 2005 so it will be as advertised by the developer, at the moment 6 miles as in above guest, this road will be better sign posted , that's why I send maps out with all the reservations " The check out time was 10:00 AM and we asked if we could be 15 minutes late and the front desk was not flexible with it at all." Gary very unusual as guests can request late check outs"   Other that those two problems, we had a great stay. It was very peaceful and the condo was clean, and had all the conveniences that we needed. It was like a home away from home.

We were very impressed with everything about Bahama Bay.
We stayed in the 3 bedroom Grand Bahama and were amazed at the amount of space we had. It really was a luxury condo so much so that we decided to stay another 2 nights instead of going to the coast.
Although we didn't have much time to use many of the facilities as we were in Disney till late every day, if we were going again we would probably spend more time at Bahama Bay than going into Disney so we could enjoy the facilities.
The pools, clubhouse and restaurant all looked very nice and it was handy having a shop onsite to buy essentials. Another nice thing about the resort was that it is built in Caribbean style which makes a refreshing change from the bland design of most of the other developments around Disney because they all look the same.
We spent the last 3 nights of our stay in Florida at the Wilderness Lodge hotel onsite at Disney and we didn't enjoy it half as much as Bahama Bay as we were cramped into a small hotel bedroom, and it was twice the price we paid for Bahama Bay.
Will definitely be back and will recommend Bahama Bay to all our friends.

We really enjoyed staying at the Bahama Bay Resort.
Many thanks for the upgrade to the Gran Bahama - the apartment was just fantastic - lots of space and all the facilities/mod cons we could have wanted. The clubhouse and pools at the resort were good and offered a pleasant way to relax in between days at the theme parks - so much more peaceful than any of the resort hotels along the 192.

We were ideally placed for everything and were a convenient  20 minute drive from Disney with plenty of good restaurants on the way. The clubhouse staff were very polite and helpful and had a good gym and beauty parlour if you needed to spend a relaxing day away from the theme parks.

Hi - sorry it's taken me so long to write back....
We thought the resort was fabulous. It was much closer to the top end of the 192 than we had thought - the location was perfect for us - it only took 45 mins to get to the convention centre - colleagues travelling from the Medieval Times end of the 192 really struggled with the traffic! When we'd finished at the convention and were back doing the usual tourist things, it was only 20 mins or so to the beginning of the Disney Highway" and sloe to the I4 so you could get to any attraction quite quickly.

The apartment itself was superb - well furnished, spotlessly clean every amenity you could want - it was a real home from home.
We ate at the restaurant a couple of times - dinner on our last night and breakfast one morning, It was nice if not a little too quiet!
If I had any criticism at all, it would be that the large pool by the club house had no heating! It had broken and wasn't due to be fixed until after we left the resort - but that can happen at any time so it was more an inconvenience than anything and had we have wanted accommodation with a pool closer and exclusively ours, then that's what we would have booked - so not a complaint - more a statement of fact :-) €œPool has a new Gas heater installed ,changed from the old electric one and is working very well, always hot Gary€
It is our intention to book with you again but as this July we'll be bringing our family we'll be  looking for a private villa with pool (probably 4 bedrooms as a minimum).
However, as I said, we will book with you again when there will be less of us travelling - it really was lovely!

If you want to spend time in Orlando, in good surroundings and excellent service then Bahama Bay is the place for you. It may seem a little bit further than the usual tourist areas but it is well worth the extra few minutes it takes to get there for the quality of the resort.
I used the resort as the base for a conference I was attending in Orlando and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to get around the whole of the Orlando area. Down town Disney is less than 15 mins and if you fly with Virgin it is well worth taking advantage of the Downtown check on the day of departure, as you could drop off you luggage and spend the rest of the day on the resort.
The apartment is really spacious with high ceilings and well equipped with all the essentials, making it a great place for families. The site was spotless and the staff very friendly. The bars are good and the restaurant near the lake really good value for money. The recently created beach next to it looks good and the fishing pier another added attraction and makes good use of lake Davenport you can buy bait etc at Wal-Mart.
There is a Publix supermarket less than a mile which also has a pizza restaurant and a good Chinese takeaway alongside it plus there is a Super Wal-Mart about two miles.Other restaurants are easy to get too along highway 192 and I-drive is less than 30 mins if you really want to go there. Downtown Disney is easier and much quicker to get to, as is Kissimmee.
>The Premium Outlet Mall is about 25 minutes.
Gary is excellent at providing tips and advice and don€™t be afraid to ask him any questions before you leave I am sure if he does not have the answer he will know somebody who will.
My only word of advice is that the turning into the site is off highway 27 can be easily missed, if you get as far as the Publix you have gone to far. Turn around at the lights and its first right.

All accommodations were excellent.  From the moment we arrived until our departure, everyone was professional and courteous.  The condo was spacious and tastefully decorated with quality furnishings; it was very "homey".  From the formal dining area to the laundry room, everything was clean and pleasant.  Even the appliances enabled us to enjoy the necessities and comforts of home. The only improvements I would recommend would be in the childrens play area.  Everything was sort of cramped into a small space.  I would suggest enlarging that space to allow for more physical activities for the kids (ie another hockey table or pool table, etc.)  Perhaps a sort of indoor playland or covered playground outside would be useful in the rainy season.(The New outside Kiddies Play area will be finished by Easter "Gary")  (It rained most of the time we were there, and the kids did become a bit restless until we got to go to Disney.)(it is unusual to rain as much as it did, it should be the Sunshine State!!!!"Gary)

Thanks, everything was fine.
Feedback, the place is lovely and perfect for families who want access to the parks but also have the ability to take some time out and relax. We did not cover Disney but Universal and Seaworld so it was a little too far to come back for lunch and then return for the evening, but this would be easily fine for the Disney parks. It was nice to have a homely base to return to after a busy day and the space in the flat was great.
The accommodation was fine and had everything we needed. We made good use out of the club house, particularly our kids who got some 'time-out' from Mum and Dad, the staff were very helpful and there was a good atmosphere around the place. The pools and beach area looked great, but we did not have the right weather to use them - I actually bought a pair of gloves! The nearby supermarket and shops were really convenient and we used them more than the club house shop, but the surrounding area has everything you need. It will be great when there are tennis courts, basketball etc(April "Gary") so that there are some outdoor activates for when the weather is not so good, as it is such a lovely location that you really want to be outside doing things - we played football in the road and no one minded so really family orientated and relaxed.

Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed the stay in your apartment at Bahama Bay Resort.
The facilities on site were excellent, the staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful, but the weather was too cold for us to use the pools (though some people did)(POOLS ARE NOW HOTTER "Gary").
The site has a small shop, with same-day UK newspapers. A well-stocked Publix supermarket is a mile down the road (nice to see they have Branston pickle and Birds custard, but funny to find them in the 'ethnic' section).
A mile up the road and you are on the 192 with quick access to Disney, the attractions and shopping.
The apartment was great (my wife fell in love with it), spacious and well-equipped with a range of good quality equipment (though I think you need a pilot's licence to operate the cooker). A huge bathroom - pity we couldn't bring it home with us.
We have often been to Orlando at this time of year, and the weather can be strange. Short days, with cloudless skies and the midday temperature hitting the 70s can be bitterly cold when the sun goes down - warnings of overnight freezing temperatures were issued for citrus growing areas while we were there. So you may not want to be out all day shopping or at the attractions, but most hotels are geared to exactly that.
The advantage we found with the apartment was that it was a pleasant comfortable home where you could spend the whole day if you wanted, with resort facilities, including the restaurant, only a few steps away, and a short ride to the main attractions.
We had a great week, and we are planning to come again next year, but for two weeks,
Regards Ian

This was our first trip to Disney so I was a little nervous about booking our stay at Bahama Bay totally from the Internet.  I shouldn't have been.  The accommodations were great.  The condo was brand new, clean and very well stocked.  We had all the room that we needed and the washer and dryer definitely came in very handy.  The pool was wonderful.  My kids enjoyed it and the hot tub as well.  It was about 20 minutes door to door to Disney in traffic and very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, even a pizza delivery place.  I have recommended it to my friends and would most definitely stay there when we take on Disney again.

Hi Gary, Resort was absolutely amazing. We totally loved it. Beautiful and clean. Very very nice. The weather didn't cooperate too much at that time of the year so we did stay in more then we have expected and a nice place like yours made up for the bad weather ! Thanks. If we plan more vacations to Orlando I will definitely contact you again.

We got back from Bahama Bay on the 02/12/04 after a three week holiday there.  What can we say!  It was fantastic.  The Condo was amazing, there was so much space and very clean almost new. We had 6 in our party 2 adults 2 teenagers and 2 younger children 9, 10 the Gran Bahama was perfect for us all no problems with over-crowding or anything that could spoil our enjoyment.  The Welcome pack on arrival was very thoughtful of the owner. The quality of the furniture fitting and fixtures were of a very high standard and in fact the website does not do it justice.  The staff were very helpful, even one of the major owners of Bahama Bay went out of his way to phone a relative in another part of Florida that we were considering travelling to, so as to give us an up to the minute weather report to ensure that we wouldn't go all the way to the destination if it was tipping down with rain.  The Bar attendant from Poinciana, Nicki, and the Spa manageress were exceptionally helpful. Their help ranged from looking after the way we looked in(the spa), hair cuts, to advice on travel, where to shop, Disney and where to eat out. Because we enjoyed ourselves immensely and because our accomodation was of the highest standard we feel it only right to take some time and offer feedback on our holiday experience.

Thank you Garry for your genuine attitude in the way that you have dealt with us.

What a great resort. I arrived for my two week stay not really knowing what to expect but I was extremely pleased with all that Bahama Bay has to offer. I was there for the opening of the Tradewinds Restaurant. Being a vegetarian I find it difficult when I€™m abroad to find suitable food but there was so much choice that I would certainly recommend it to anyone lucky enough to be staying at this well presented and friendly resort.

Hi Gary,
Just wanted to say Thank you so much for letting us stay in your Grand Bahama apartment, it was really lovely. When you walked in, it definitely had that WOW factor!! It was very clean, big and spacious and the view was fantastic!!  We have a 3 year old boy who doesn't sit still so having such a big apartment was great as he had lots of room to play, we wasn't all cooped up in one room which is what we would have had if we had gone to a hotel. Thank you for the welcome pack we really appreciated it, the food and drink you provided was spot on, a very nice gesture after a long flight. The complex was really lovely, even though there was still some building work going on it wasn't a problem.  I'm looking forward to it being finished especially the restaurant and beach, as it would be lovely to be able to relax on the beach in the hot Florida sun and not have to drive out for something to eat.  I would definitely go back to Bahama Bay and definitely recommend it to anyone who was thinking about a holiday in Florida, it was perfect, we loved it so much we've looked in to buying an apartment for ourselves!!!!! Thank you again...........  Julie, Andy & Tyler

Good day Gary, just got back from our vacation and wanted to drop you a note thanking you for taking care of our arrangements for our stay at Bahama Bay. We had a great trip and wanted you to know that the entire family was very pleased with Bahama Bay. We stayed 1 week at the Sheraton Vistania and have to tell you that other than the Kiddies swimming pool we all by far preferred your resort. I might add that with the development work that we saw going on at Bahama Bay, the Kiddies swimming pool will soon be ready for use thus solving this 1 minor short fall. The accommodations were excellent and very rooming, the grounds are very nice and very well maintained and the staff @ Bahama Bay (particularly Nickie) were very eager to help in any way they could. I would highly recommend your resort to anyone who may be looking for a wonderful place to stay on their next visit to Orlando. Thanks again for your assistance as well.

Just returned from two weeks in Orlando. It was my 13th visit and I have to say that the Bahama Bay Resort was by far the best place we have stayed.
The appartment we stayed in was one of the two bedroom ones and it was superb and very spacious. When you stay in one of these appartments you want for nothing.
The staff at the resort were very polite and helpful and the resort itself is immaculately kept, in fact it was so good that we didn't use the Universal Park tickets as we were so relaxed in this place.
Anyway as the tickets never expire we intend to book again for next year but this time intend to stay for three weeks.
If you are looking for the best place to stay intown then this is it.

"First impressions on arrival after a long flight were extremely good. We opened the door to a large, clean, comfortable and well equipped home from home - quite a relief as you are never sure what to expect when booking direct. Your call the next morning to make sure everything was OK was a nice touch and the welcome pack of food was really appreciated.
The advantage of staying in an apartment rather than a hotel is you get more space for your money - you need enough room for everyone to relax after a hard day at the theme parks (and during our enforced stay indoors because of hurricane Charley).
The downside is that you stay further away from the major attractions but at between 20-30 minutes door to door it wasn€™t an issue for us. Your tips on back roads into/out of Disney saved a lot of time - especially when the parks close at night and everyone is directed towards the 192 and I4. I even used the Disney road network to avoid a large jam on the I4 after a trip to Universal Studios.
We had a fantastic holiday in Orlando with excellent accommodation at the Bahama Bay - I€™d definitely stay here again.€(Already Booked for next year "Gary")

Stayed in a Grand Bahama Appartment, 15th to 27th August, 2004. Can only say how pleased we were that we booked to stay at Bahama Bay. The appartment was superb-spacious, clean, well-equiped, with a very welcome 'welcome pack' on arival.
The resort was equally good, and when fully finished will be spectactular. Pool area fantastic. Good location for Disney: not bad for Universal though morning traffic on the 192 can be awful - leave early for the parks! Overall, would recomend to anyone. Next time in Florida, will certainly use Bahama Bay again.
Very pleased, and had a wonderful holiday.

The Welcome Pack was much appreciated.
We had a great time despite Hurricane Charley which hit on the day after arrival. Luckily we got away with only high winds and rain where as up by the Walmart on the 192 they got hit and had no power for a few days, Diner Signs and Trees down everywhere (Obviously by the time we got home the story has got somewhat bigger of how we survived Hurricane Charley and we all have the T Shirt to prove it). In fact some people got evacuated and relocated to Bahama Bay and they could not believe their luck.
The resort and accommodation is excellent and exceeded our expectations, even though the resourt is not complete. When the entire place is finished it will be something else. The staff were more than helpful on arrival and whilst at the resort, not that we needed them. They did keep us very well informed on Hurricane Charley's progress and advised us when not to venture too far.
The Pool by our apartment was perfect after a day at the theme parks or even on a rest day. It was never too busy and there was none of the 'Putting Towels on the Sun Beds' that you get on a European Holiday. There was enough to go round. The Pool at the Club House was also ideal espacially with the Poolside Bar. We also made good use of the Internet facilities at the Club House.
The location was ideal about 20 min from Disney (Dependant on the 192) and 30 min from Universal.
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your Apartment. I hope we left everything to your satisfaction.
The only thing I could suggest is a 'User Guide / Manual' for the Apartment and the Resort i.e. Laundry arrangements (which the Club House explained), rubbish and using the facilities etc. If there was one in the Apartment I apologise but we never found it.
Thanks again

Hi Gary - Can't thank you enough for renting us your apartment at Bahama Bay. The video doesn't do it justice - its absolutely enormous and very luxurious. You could have slept six in the master bed its so big and its handy having a washing machine and dryer as it saves you taking so many clothes with you. I wish I had a washing machine and dryer that good at home. We didn't do too much at night but with all those channels on the television we always had something to watch. The staff were really friendly and helpful and it was great being only 15 minutes from Disney and all those great shops. Thanks again Carol.

I would just like to take this opportunity to pass on our thanks to the owners of the property at Bahama Bay Resort in which we recently stayed on a three week vacation to Orlando.
I can honestly say that it far exceeded all of our expectations in every way, the apartments were of a superior quality than any other we had visited in the past & the layout of the Grand Bahama apartment was spacious & had everything we could possibly want for.
The Bahama Bay Resort itself was in a quiet location & was well thought out with a beautiful landscaping maintained to a very high quality as were all the facilities within the resort both around the clubhouse, pool & entire resort area the cleanliness was of the highest standards. The staff were courteous,helpful & very efficient at dealing with any requests or questions we raised & went out of their way to give a high level of service at all levels making both the adults & the children in our party feel very much at home while in unfamiliar surroundings.
I can only reiterate that the Bahama Bay Resort & it's staff helped to make this the best vacation that our family has ever had & we will be returning in the very near future to sample some more of this wonderful place & would recommend Bahama Bay to friends & family.

Reviewer: A TripAdvisor User,Bowie Maryland
First I must say that I use Trip Advisor for all of my trips - I had chosen other places and then cancelled when I read reviews from Trip Advisor. Planning this trip and reading some of the reviews for the Bahama Bay had me a little worried. However, I always look to see if there are more bad than good reviews and I use that to make my decision. The Bahama Bay was Excellent - Outstanding - I was in one of the older 3 bdrm units - it was clean, plenty of towels, sheets, a kitchen fully supplied with all utensils - all you need to do is buy the food. It was pleasingly comfortable. It's about 15 min from Disney 20 min to Seaworld and 25 min to Universal. Hey it's not International Drive - (which to say the least to me was a nightmare to much traffic). If you are looking for a serene place after a hectic day at the parks then Bahama Bay is the place to stay. The pools were heated and clean and the facility is beautiful the service was outstanding. We happened to be in Orlando the week of Hurricane Charley - our unit did not loose power and we survived winds up to 80 mph. Overall if I ever went back to Orlando I would stay at the Bahama Bay in Davenport Fla.

The apartment was fantastic, really high quality.  If we go back to Orlando,I will definitely give you a call. However,I wasn't very impressed with the Bahama Bays management.  The entire time we were there the plasma screen wasn't working upstairs in the clubhouse, only 2 of the 4 game consoles worked and even then only 2 handsets.
THIS IS BEING DEALT WITH
However,getting back to your apartment, I couldn't fault it.  It really was superb, and a great place to return to after the kids exhausted me at the various parks.  One small thing was that only 2 slices of the 4 slice toaster worked.  I reported it on the third day, and they said they'd change it but they never did.  No big deal for us, just so that you know.
Bad comments are being rectified by the management company

Gary, I'm happy to recommend you and the Bahama Bay resort to other visitors to the Orlando area.  We enjoyed our spacious well-appointed quarters and pool-view patios.  The three-bedroom apartment was a perfect base of operations and peaceful retreat for our family, not to mention a GREAT VALUE considering the facilities.  We felt lucky to be so close to the action, but away from the crowds.  The nicely-heated swimming pool and hot tub were just a few steps from our door and very much appreciated as a grand finale to the hectic days at the attractions in town. We even managed to view a segment of the evening fireworks from Epcot from the pool!.  Also we liked the conveniently-located shopping for food items, as we utilized our well-equipped  kitchen fully to avoid high priced food at the theme parks.  I liked the reception we received  at the front desk, with lots of helpful advice and maps  for getting around the area.  Although not far from the theme parks, newcomers can easily get disoriented without these personalized touches from the staff at Bahama Bay. I certainly hope we can return.  It would have been nice to try out the restaurant, bar, and sauna at the clubhouse, but we didn't give ourselves the extra time this trip!  This new complex is bound to get even  prettier with time, as the lush landscaping matures and the lake front  becomes more accessible.
I will definitely keep your contact info handy to pass along to friends and hopefully return some time in the future.

My husband and I selected Bahama Bay after spending so much time searching for the perfect hotel. We were doing a triathlon in Clermont and wanted a comfortable, quiet atmosphere to stay in. Bahama Bay was perfect. Brand new, private, and about 15-20 minutes from Clermont. The actual rooms were better than the pictures displayed on the internet. We loved the property so much that we took walks around to check out the scenery. We enjoyed a full kitchen, high ceilings, wrap around screened-in balcony and washer/dryer. The triathlon sucked but the townhouse was great!
