We stayed at Grotto Bay for about 5 days and had a wonderful, very relaxing time. We loved exploring the small uninhabited kays by canoe, paddle boarding and snorkeling right from our own private beach, admiring the millions of stars in the night sky, grilling lobster on the fire or just hanging in the hammocks under the palm trees.

We just spent a week at Grotto Bay at Kris & Jeanie's. What wonderful hosts! They are in a lovely spot on the lee side of Long Island, a perfect location for exploring the island as Salt Pond is roughly Midway down the Island (it's not called "long Island" for nothing,,,) The quarters were very comfortable and well done with...

Jeannie and Chris where great hosts. They are available when you need them but give you plenty of privacy. The shared kitchen has everything you will need to whip up a meal, Chris has some fish and lobster you can purchase from him. The new fire pit looks great, we will have to come back and check it out.

We could not have asked for a better experience at Grotto Bay! Jean and Kris were amazing hosts and people. The property itself is beyond beautiful and is equipped with everything you need and more! Having access to paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and your own private beach was truly unbeatable. If you are looking for an authentic bohemian experience... More

Jean & Kris, thank you for another serene vacation. What could be better than dry (for Bahamas) 80is. You are on the deck; the water splashes 10 yards away; 6 pack is by; a spy novel in your hands; I supplement Billie Holiday quite tune on my iTune. Don’t miss the green ray from the sunset on the top deck.... More

Kris and Jean are gracious and generous hosts...always available to offer advice, directions or a lovely chat. In addition to the spectacular beachfront, the property grounds are beautiful and provide hours of eye candy from the sway of the hammock. Such a rare treat to have so much privacy and quiet. The island offers as much or as little adventure... More

What an incredible getaway for this winter-wearing couple! In fact, given the blissfully-even climate, this would be an incredible vacation any time of the year. Grotto Bay is right on its own beach, well-supplied with kayaks, paddle-boards and all the swimming and snorkling gear you could need. In fact, both owners Kris and Jean are dive masters, so if scuba... More

Wow, wow,wow. We loved it. Lovely room, nice kitchen next to the rooms outside under the roof. A great extra to just having a room. Microwave in the room as well though and fridge with a bigger fridge outside in the kitchen too. Also a safe in the room and wifi. Shops nearby and petrol station too. The property is... More

We stayed at Grotto Bay for 8 days during Thanksgiving break 2013. My husband and I have children ages 3, 8 and 16, so it's pretty difficult to accommodate everyone's desires. Grotto Bay was amazing! Jean was extremely attentive to our needs, despite not being there during our stay. She arranged the rental car and provided lots of advice on... More

We recently returned from a week at Grotto Bay and it exceeded our expectations in every way - great accommodations, ideal location for exploring, private beach and recreation right at your front door, and everything you need nearby. Grotto Bay itself is about 100 yards off the main “highway” in Salt Pond – it’s convenient to two grocery stores, liquor... More
