I can\'t say enough wonderful things about our stay at the beachfront cottage last month. We\'re back home where there is a foot of snow on the ground, and I\'m really wishing we\'d been able to extend our stay at the Hideaway for at least another week.The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and beyond our expectations. Every morning when we awoke, we had to pinch ourselves - it was like being on the set of South Pacific! Yes, storms have left their mark on Grand Bahama, but the charm, easy pace and incredibly helpful and kind locals more than made up for any lack. We appreciated all the restaurant and beach tips from Liz and John, and Ezra and James provided anything else we needed - extra bedding, barbecue assistance and fine company. Next year? At least another week!
Wonderful little treasure!!!

Well... I do not even know where to start. When we arrived it was very late and we were met and greeted by our Caretaker James and Oscar (his sweet dog). He was wonderful, showed us around and checked on us every evening. The cottage was a peaceful and wonderful place. It was clean, and perfect for our family. It is steps from the beach, Literally!!! We had so much wonderful and relaxing time, that it truly spoiled us. We went swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and just relaxing on that beautiful beach that went on for miles. We only saw 2 people the entire time there on the beach. A day or so into our visit we met John Liz and Sharly ( their dog), and must I say they were wonderful, made us feel right at home and like part of their Bahama family. It was nice getting to meet them and get to know them. We truly hated to leave. We loved it so very much there, that we came back in December as well for a little longer. Again at that visit we were greeted by everyone!!! and we felt right at home. They are all so wonderful and they work hard to just make everything perfect for their guests, ( who feel like family). I can not say enough about our time there, we have also stayed at the Plumbago Villa and it is wonderful too. If you are looking for true relaxation, and some peace and quiet and great family time, then this is the place for you. When you wake up every morning and look outside that picture window, you just see amazing turquoise waters, it was truly breathtaking. We are from the gulfcoast, so we beach it often, but it does not compare to the pristine white beach and beautiful waters right outside your home. ( We loved it there, and made so many wonderful memories with our daughter, and I am so thankful for that little piece of paradise that you share with the rest of us for wonderful times like this ) John, Liz, and James we will see you soon. Thank you for everything.

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away from the crazy resort areas, this is for you!
The house has everything, perfect for 2 couples with 2 bedrooms each with it\'s own bathroom at opposite ends of the house. The beach goes on forever and is just steps from the cottage.
There is a caretaker nearby who will help you with anything you may need.
Be sure to get groceries before you arrive because you will not want to leave.
You can snorkel on the reef or paddle around on the kayaks that come with the house.
What a wonderful vacation we had!!!!
An amazing place to visit PARADISE

Just perfect for us all. I liked the bedrooms with private bathrooms being at either end of the cottage and private. The very large great room, with kitchen and dining area and lounge and TV area was perfect. The utensils etc were plentiful and In good condition. Moving to the outside, it\'s very private and we found the sands so close and the water is so warm, clear and just perfect for swimming. There were the kayaks that we used so many times in between snorkeling. We\'ve never enjoyed so much time in the water. The lads fished from the beach and we had great barbecue nights with a mixture of fish etc. never had such a great vacation.

My wife and I have recently returned from Grand Bahama, and the perfect location that is Hideaway Beach Club. Right from the start, the owners were very welcoming and provided us with everything we needed. I was a little worried if they could cater for my disabled wife, but the whole complex had great wheelchair access.
The weather was delightful and the warm waters were very inviting. I particularly enjoyed the snorkeling with lots to see among\'st the reefs and water holes. My wife was able to tag along with me aboard a kayak that was supplied for us. Lots of other activities to do and when we got tired we could just lay back and enjoy the sun.
The locals were also very friendly and the town of Freeport was very special. Live entertainment in the square at night and lots of lovely bars and restaurants. The food was amazing and a large selection to choose from. The town could get very busy when the cruise ships arrived, which made Hideaway so special. It is a 30 minute drive from Freeport where it is remote but far from isolated. Meaning you could escape back to your very own, quiet piece of paradise.
All in all, a very nice location that I have recommended to my friends and family.
I am even contemplating buying one of their new apartments which are near completion.
