Guestbook for Grand Bahama 1

  • 19th Mar 2016

    This was our second year staying for a week in the 3-bedroom condo at Bahama Bay owned by Magnus and Yvonne.
    We'll go back for a 3rd straight year next March.
    They keep it in perfect shape. The porch is especially delightful. Bahama Bay is nicely manicured with a lovely nature walk and many pools and hot tubs.
    It is well situated near minor league and college baseball fields, Disney, Epcot and Orlando.
    Finally, it's a pleasure dealing with Magnus, whom I've never met, but consider a friend after so many helpful exchanges.
    You couldn't do better if you're looking for a spacious, quiet, beautiful condo with many activities available both on-site and nearby.

    Wir waren in den deutschen Herbstferien als Familie mit Eltern/Schwiegereltern für 2 Wochen im Bahama Bay Resort in der Wohnung von Magnus und Yvonne.
    Vom ersten Kontakt an mit Magnus bis nach dem Urlaub wurde uns immer geholfen und alle Fragen beantwortet und super Tipps gegeben was das Leben, Ausflüge, Mietwagen usw angeht.
    Die Wohnung ist einfach traumhaft und es ist genug Platz für alle ( man kann sich auch mal aus dem Weg gehen :-) Es war alles sauber und es hat an nichts gefehlt was die Ausstattung angeht. Ich kann das alles nur Empfehlen.
    Auch die Mitarbeiter von Bahama Bay waren alle sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Anlage befand sich auch in einem einwandfreiem Zustand. Wir werden ganz sicher wieder Urlaub dort machen.

    From our first contact with Magnus, I felt like this was going to be a great vacation property......and we were not disappointed.

    The resort itself is beautiful and well maintained. The pool areas were great and our four year old especially loved the splash pad. The resort staff were super friendly and responded right away with any inquiries. And I liked how close it was to the Disney parks......and even Universal and outlet shopping wasn't too far of a drive.

    The condo itself was great also. With my wife's parents with us on the trip.....having space and comfort was extremely important. The large bedrooms and bathrooms was just what we needed. And the kitchen had everything you needed to cook meals with lots of cupboard and counter space.

    We throughly enjoyed our stay in this condo and dealing with the owners has been a pleasure. We would recommend this condo to anyone who would like to have a home away from home.

    Thank You Jamie for the wonderful review!

    It was a pleasure having you staying in our condo and we really appreciated the communication before, during and after your stay.

    We are pleased to read you all could enjoy the fabulous amenities both in the resort as well in the apartment.

    You are right that the size of our condo is giving the possibility of both being all together as well also having the chance of being private.

    We hope to see you all back soon again.

    I can't thank you enough for letting us rent your condo at Bahama Bay! We made such great family memories there! The grounds were beautiful, and the condo was perfect. It was so spacious we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Truly one of the best places we've rented as a family!

    We would love to rent your condo again in the future. I will keep your email address in my contacts so that we can keep in touch.

    Thank you again and again!!

  • 5th Apr 2015

    Full pott till Magnus och Yvonnes fantastiska boende I utkanten av Orlando. Här bor man mycket bekvämt med tillgång till allt man kan tänkas behöva under sin semester. Lägenheten är stor och mycket bra utrustad.
    Vi bodde två familjer med fyra små barn vilket fungerade alldeles utmärkt. Själva Bahama Bay är ett stort område med allt man kan önska. Våra barn stortrivdes!
    Läget är super med korta avstånd till alla parker och själva Orlando men också till kusten. Vi besökte västkusten flera ggr och hann också med en tur till rymdkusten.
    Denna lägenhet rekommenderas varmt och inte minst pga den fantastiska kontakten med ägarna som är oerhört hjälpsamma och organiserade. Allt fungerade över förväntan och vi kände oss väl omhändertagna och informerade. Stort tack!

    Thank You for the warming words! We can see you really took the opportunity in maximizing your stay, not only visiting Orlando attraction but also enjoying the resort as well as taking trips to both the nearby oceans. Sounds like a fabulous vacation! The condo is big enough for two families and this does not only make it more fun, you also save a lot of money compared to staying in hotel rooms. We really hope to see you back soon again!

    We absolutely recommend this 3-bedroom, 2-bath condo at Bahama Bay, owned by Magnus and Yvonne.
    Magnus was terrific to deal with in every way, and the place was just what it was cracked up to be, and exactly what the reviews have said.
    Everything is in top shape. It's on the 3rd floor, and there was NO noise from the building. The rooms are perfectly clean and spacious. The grounds are kept impeccably.
    On some days, we enjoyed the swimming pool right behind our condo. On other days, we preferred the larger pool near the restaurant. The 3/4-mile nature walk is good for as many rounds as one wants to make. The condo is equidistant from Route 27 and Kissimmee (where there is more activity).
    Thank you, Magnus and Yvonne!

    Thank you for the fantastic review! It was a pleasure being in contact with you both before and during your stay and we are so happy you have decided to return to our condo next year again. It is great to hear you took the opportunity both to use the amenities at the resort as well as spending time in the Orlando area outside the big parks, there is so much to see and do. Although the resort was fully booked during your stay, including a lot of visiting sports team, one will not be disturbed by noise in our unit thanks to location and flooring standard. Welcome back next year!

  • 1st Feb 2015

    Magnus and Yvonne are a very sociable couple to deal with. Having a good contact with the owners helped make our stay very relaxing. All the amenities are as mentioned in other reviews, and the condo is being continually improved. We know that when we return next year, the best condo will be even better. I recommend you get in touch with will be impressed by his friendly professionalism.

    It has been great having you and your family as our guests during February. We always try to keep a good dialogue with our guests, not only to maximize their Orlando vacation but it also gives us invaluable information back so we can continue improving our offer. We are looking forward having you back again next year.

    Detta är ett boende som vi verkligen kan rekommendera. Det är en jättefin lägenhet med massor av plats. Helt klart bästa boendet på våran resa. Barnen ger även dom lägenheten högsta betyg.
    Allt man behöver och mer därtill finns och när man lägger sig i dom supersköna sängarna är det tyst och lugnt.
    Letar ni boende i Orlando så är detta helt perfekt.

    Thank You for the lovely review. It was especially great hearing the kids appreciated the condo so much. It is easy to get spoiled when you stay in our apartment with all it's space, equipment and comfort. The quiet location on the top floor in combination with the comfortable luxury hotel beds really makes it possible to get a well needed rest after an exhausting day in Orlando. Hope to see you all soon back again!

  • 17th Jan 2015

    Vi bodde i denna underbara lägenhet i en vecka tillsammans med våra vuxna barn. Och vi hade en fantastisk semester! Lägenheten ligger i ett bra område med närhet till alla tänkbara parker. Själva lägenheten är stor och rymlig, har allt man kan behöva för en lyckad semester och Bahama Bay är ett välskött område. Magnus svarade alltid på våra frågor och tipsade om mycket för att vi skulle få en så bra upplevelse som möjligt. Med Orlando som bas har man västkusten bara ca 2 timmar bort med bil. Vi rekommenderar detta boende och kommer definitivt komma tillbaka!

    Ett toppval att bo, när man ska utforska Orlandos alla nöjen och sevärdheter!
    Lägenheten var rikt utrustad med allt man skulle kunna tänka sig, fantastiskt sköna sängar och härligt stora badrum. Jättebra med extra handdukar till poolen, som låg alldeles runt hörnet av lägenheten.
    Trevlig balkong att sitta ute på om kvällarna och våra grabbar jublade över wi-fi i lägenheten! Bahama bay och framförallt denna lägenhet skulle vi varmt vilja rekommendera, man blir inte besviken

    Thank You for the fantastic review! We are very pleased you appreciated the small but important things like the comfortable beds, the fully equipped condo, the wonderful balcony and the location so close to a pool. Those details, that you might not think of when you book, really turn out to make the difference between an ordinary condo and our unique penthouse. We really hope to have you back soon agan!

  • 9th Dec 2014

    The beds were comfy, the furnishings were nice, and the rooms were huge. The kitchen had almost everything you need, except for spices, salt and pepper, which the host explained were not left because of health codes.
    We loved the balcony, with its comfortable chairs and tables, so nice to sip coffee on in the morning. The resort has everything you need for a great time. Thanks for the great time! Hopefully we can come back next year!

    We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we really hope to have you and your family back soon again as our guests. I am happy that you appreciated the balcony as it is quite unique of its kind at the resort. It is a perfect place for breakfast, relaxing during daytime or enjoying a drink in the evening together with the whole family and friends. This is something you can do independent of season.

    It is very true that we are not allowed to keep salt&pepper etc in the kitchen, strict safety regulation from the resort and therefore we always inform our guests in advance. It is quite common our guests bring their own favorite spices from home.

    Wir haben Anfang November 3 Nächte dieser Anlage gewohnt, um von dort einige Parks zu besuchen (Universal, Seaworld und Kennedy Space Center). Die Lage ist optimal, ruhig gelegen in einer schönen Landschaft am Lake Davenport und dennoch sehr verkehrsgünstig zu den Parks, Outletmall und sämtlichen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Im nahegelegenen Walmart haben wir übrigens sehr vergünstigte Tickets für Seaworld gekauft.
    Die Anlage macht einen sehr gepflegten Eindruck und das Personal an der Reception war äußerst freundlich. Wir konnten die Pools der Anlage leider nicht nutzen, da wir von morgens bis spät abends unterwegs waren. Beim nächsten Mal bleiben wir bestimmt länger!

    Und nun zur Wohnung selbst.
    Wenn man die Tür öffnet, betritt man ein Paradies! Es fehlt an nichts. Die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Die Beschreibung in der Anzeige ist absolut treffend, aber die Wohnung ist noch schöner, als auf den Fotos. Wir waren mit 2 Erwachsenen und 3 Kindern dort und hatten mehr als genug Platz. Es war alles tiptop sauber. Der Emailkontakt mit Magnus in Schweden war sehr nett und es lief alles reibungslos ab, obwohl wir recht kurzfristig gebucht haben. Ich kann diese Wohnung zu 100% weiterempfehlen und hoffe, dass auch wir dort mal wieder Urlaub machen-dann auf jeden Fall länger!

    Thank you for the warming words. It was a pity there was not enough time to explore the resort this trip. This is understandable when visiting Orlando, there is so much to do and with the location of Bahama Bay, you will reach all the major attractions with just a short drive. We are proud to here that you compare our condo with a paradise, we are doing our outmost to keep our place in top condition so our guests and ourselves really can enjoy staying there. The contact with you as our guest is so important in order to secure the best possible stay and at the same time building a friendship and mutual trust. Warmly welcome back!

    Wir haben eine Woche Urlaub mit unserer Tochter in dieser sehr großzügigen und hervorragend eingerichteten Ferienwohnung verbracht.

    Die Wohnung liegt im 2. Stock unter dem Dach dieser Wohneinheit und ist über die breite Außentreppe zu erreichen. Sie ist sehr ruhig gelegen. Mit drei Personen verliert man sich fast in dieser Wohnung. Sechs Personen können hier bestimmt problemlos unter kommen.
    Die Einrichtung ist schön hell gehalten und wirkt recht neu und hochwertig. Ausstattung von Küche, Bäder, Wohn- und Schlafzimmern lässt keine Wünsche offen. Es war alles vorhanden was man für einen entspannten Urlaub benötigt.

    Das Bahama Bay Resort ist sehr ruhig gelegen trotz zentraler Lage zu den Disney-Parks und anderen Attraktionen in Orlando. Auch sind diverse Restaurants und vielfältige Einkaufsmöglichkeiten recht schnell zu erreichen (die neu geöffnete Funie Steed Rd ist eine gute Umgehung zur US192 Richtung Orlando).

    Das Resort selber ist hervorragend ausgestattet (mehrere beheizte Pools, Kinderspielplätze, kleiner Laden für nötigsten Bedarf, Restaurants und freies WLAN in der Anlage) und sehr großzügig mit diversen Grünflächen und auch separaten Fußwegen angelegt.

    Der schriftliche Kontakt zum Eigentümer Magnus in Schweden war sehr nett und stets schnell. Wir konnten uns stets mit allen Fragen und kleinen Problemchen an ihn wenden und wurden im Vorfeld unserer Reise mit hilfreichen Informationen versorgt.

    Wir kommen gerne wieder. Nochmals vielen Dank für die tadellose Abwicklung.

    Thank You for the fantastic review! It was an honor for us having you and your family as our guests. We really enjoyed having the great communication before, during and after your stay. It feels very good that you acknowledged the high standard and that confirms our ambition to offer "das Beste vom Besten" (The Best of the Best) when it comes to offering a place to stay while visiting Orlando. The condo is very spacious and in fact 8 adults can easily stay there without any problem at all. We are looking forward to your next visit and once again, Thank You for staying with us.

    Magnus and Yvonne's penthouse condo is one of the largest luxury apartments in the Bahama Bay resort, it is extremely well located close to 2 of the heated swimming pools/ jacuzzi's, gym, the child's play area and the resort clubhouse.

    Visitors to the Bahama Bay resort will enjoy a remarkably quiet tranquillity, due in part to the generous spacing of apartment blocks, and also due to the beautifully maintained landscaped grounds of the resort. We find this resort so calming and relaxing at the end of a busy day at one of the many theme parks..... this probably accounts for our having stayed at Bahama Bay on 8 out of our 12 Florida vacations to date.

    The apartment appears to have been recently refurbished with new deep pile carpeting in the hall, lounge, and the spacious bedrooms. After the 9 hour flight UK to FL the (new... I think) luxury memory foam topped mattresses were so comfortable and very much appreciated.
    We found the whole booking process reassuringly easy with very prompt replies from Magnus throughout. At the time of departure Magnus provided some very helpful 'Good to Know' information which should prove very useful to any newcomers to Bahama Bay in Florida.

    Thank you Dave for the fantastic review! It feels especially good as you and your family have been frequent visitor of Bahama Bay and by that having the possibility of comparing different units within the Resort. It is true that our Grand Bahama unit is one of the few of the most spacious Condos in Bahama Bay and is about 40% larger than most other 3 BR units. It is also great that you noticed the perfect location of our condo within the resort, it was a deliberate choice we made to have a unit close to an own poolarea and to the Club house with all surrounding great amenities. The new mattresses and carpets are some of the important improvements we have invested in during this year in order to give our guests a really comfortable stay. We hope getting the honor of accommodating you and your family again during your next trip to Orlando.

    Perfekt boende för alla utflykter runt Orlando. Imponerande yta och utrustning i lägenheten. Gott om plats och 2 stora badrum. Skön balkong med heltäckande insektsnät. Nära pool och varmt bubbelbad. Eftersom det finns flera pooler på området blev det aldrig slut på solsängar.Härligt område och bra service i receptionen. Ett ställe jag varmt rekommenderar! Litet minus för det klena utbudet i områdets " shop", men det ligger Walmart bara några minuter bort från infarten till resorten.

    Thanks for the kind words. We do everything we can to keep the condo in top condition and we have made sure that it is equipped far beyond what is normal within the resort. The balconies are great to sit on, there's plenty of room for the whole family and the balcony size is something that is really special for large Grand Bahama condos. We have also never experienced the pools being crowded and as you write, there are of course several great pools to choose from. We can agree that the supply in the local store is not the greatest, but with Publix and Wal-Mart just a few minutes away, it is normally not a big deal.

  • 19th Jun 2014

    Apartment is well equipped for a vacation stay. A swimming pool just by the building means you can take a dip whenever - just as long as its within opening hours. There are two big and spacious beds, fortunate since a day in Orlando can be quite exhausting.

    Entertainment options in the living room includes a TV and Stereo. A Blu-ray player is also present. The player has a USB slot, so it could play movies stored on a USB Drive I brought with me.

    There is a DVD rental station at the area's main building, and it includes surprisingly recent movies as well. Ended up catching up a bit on my Movie backlog that way.

    The stereo curiously included Bluetooth streaming support, so we could stream music directly from our Smartphones. I'd expect iPods and tablets to also work.

    Wi-fi is available over the entire area. It works fine most of the time, but one of the Smartphones was somewhat temperamental with it at times.

    Great to hear you had such a great stay and thank you for your lovely review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our media equipment that we have installed in the condo. It is a fact that visiting Orlando is an exhausting experience so we decided to equip the condo with all kinds of modern media facilities. Being able to watch your own movies, listening to your own music all with a top modern technology we believe is a huge added value for our guests when resting after a hectic day. We hope to see you back soon again!

    Our group consisted of Nana, Poppy, Mom and Dad accompanied by a 5 year old, 3 year old, and 5 month old children. The condo was perfect for us with a great price.
    The grounds and amenities are excellent--had some great areas to stroll the babe as well as several pools to choose from for swimming and relaxation.
    The location is excellent--close enough to attractions and shopping yet removed from the hustle and bustle of traffic. We closed out our stay by using the picnic area to grill hamburgers and hot dogs while the kiddos enjoyed the playground. It was a very pleasurable stay!

    It is so great hearing that 3 generations traveled and stayed together in our Condo! Thanks to our spacious condo you can do this without running into each other all the time. There is also always room for some privacy.

    It must have been a fantastic time you spent on the grounds together with your grandchild. You can easily spend days just walking around, relaxing by the poolside, having a cold soda or a coffee, enjoying the playgrounds etc etc.

    The picnic area is so great as the kids can go and play while "daddy" is flipping burgers and hotdogs and the whole family can just be sitting together enjoying every single minute.

    Vi hyrde denna bostad i två veckor tillsammans med våra barn 8,9 och 13 år och hade en fantastisk semester. Bostaden ligger i ett bra område med närhet till mycket sevärt. Flera pooler samt rolig vattenlek för både stora som små barn.
    Lägenheten är stor och rymlig och har allt som kan behövas för en lyckad semester och hela Bahama bay är ett mycket vackert och välskött område. Personalen i klubbhuset samt ägaren Magnus var väldigt snabb på att besvara frågor och komma med tips för att vi skulle få en så bra upplevelse som möjligt. Man tar sig lätt till Disney och de andra parkerna in Orlando. Den vackra västkusten är ca 2 timmar bort med bil. Vi rekommenderar detta boende och kommer definitivt komma tillbaka!

    Vi är så glada att ni hade en så fantastisk semester i Orlando. Ni gjorde helt rätt i att göra en utflykt till havet på västkusten, det är ju bara en snabb bilresa. Att åka till östkusten tar ungefär lika kort tid. Vi vill så gärna att våra gäster får en riktigt bra vistelse hos oss och tycker det är viktigt att hålla en nära kontakt. Då vi kan dela med oss av tips och idéer inför semesterresan. Ni är så välkomna igen.

    I had never before rented anything in Orlando that wasn't on Disney Property. I am so happy that I found this amazing condo.
    With a group of 8, staying on Disney grounds would have broken the bank. We only stayed at the condo over the weekend and it was a wonderful experience.
    Checking in was very easy and the grounds were lovely and quite. The condo was well fitted and the best part was that the master bedroom with its own bathroom was not too close to the other 2 bedrooms, which was great when travelling with teenagers.
    It took us 20 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom which wasn't bad at all. I would suggest that you bring an extra towel or two for the pool or that bath. With 8 in this condo, there were only 6 pool towels and six bath towels. Not bad, but with 5 teenage girls, we should have brought our own. Overall, the condo was perfect.

    I am so happy your stay turned out to become such a success!

    I fully understand your finding of how much value you get for the money when you rent a condo like ours compared to staying inside the parks.

    I can fully understand that you enjoyed the Master Bedroom as an adult get-away with all the kids around. It is almost like an own apartment in the apartment. En-suite Bathroom, comfortable bed, own TV and direct access to the balcony..what more can one ask for? :)

    When it comes to the towels it seems to have been a mis-communication between myself and the Resort, I am really sorry for that. There should always be towels for all the guests and if this would happen again you only need to contact the front desk. In any case, I will bring this up with the resort.

    I really hope to see you all back again in the near future.
