“Wonderful ”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had an absolute blast at this house. It had everything we needed. The beach was fabulous. Everything they said was true. Extremely nice people to work with. We are planning the next trip for 2016! The only complaint was the air conditioning and humidity in the house. The living room/kitchen was hot and humid. The bedrooms were freezing cold and humid/sticky! But didn't bring our week down at all!!!

“Great Time Had By All !”
Reviewed April 22, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

Our family of 9, including teen age grand kids, had a really fun week at the Goodfellow house. It is large, spacious with high ceilings, lots of open space. The house is located out in the boondocks and there is nothing really around there. Each room had its own bath which was great; master bed and bath was very large and comfortable. It;s right on the beach but you have to watch the time of the tides cause there are a lot of rocks. About an hour after high tide you can walk over the rocks and get to the sand and then you have a couple of hours before the tide comes back in to cover the rocks. There are miles of beach stretching away to the east which are great to walk on, swim, etc but not for snorkeling as there is nothing to see down there. The house has great wifi and free phone to the US

WE were welcomed by Patricia who showed us around and arranged for one of her staff, Toya Moxey, to cook us a Bahamian dinner the nite of our arrival. Which was pretty good and reasonable, took the pressure off to prepare dinner. Did our big shopping the next day at Solomon's, mostly stuff for breakfast and lunch. Made burgers and chicken one nite but the products are not very good...tough chicken and strange ground meat.

The owner had recommended Doris's at High Rock, which is further down the road than shown on his map. This is a shack on the beach but would only recommend for drinks as they food was terrible...too spicy and the burgers were made of some mystery meat. Had a great lunch at Sabor's overlooking the marina in Port Lucaya....food and outdoor setting very enjoyable...located next to Unesco. Also went snorkeling with Pat & Diane's tour. A larger boat, fun crew however the snorkeling over the reef was so-so, not as good as expected.

Contacted Billy Humes and arranged fishing trip way out east off of Pelican point. Very simple but good and everyone caught fish! Another 2 nights we brought in a chef, Brittney Minnis, who made great meas for us but it was quite expensive, though we didn't have to shlep back into town. A good idea is to contact Hida Ingraham at experiencegrandbahamisland.com and she is very helpful in arranging all kinds of activities.

On the last nite we went to Pier 1 right on Freeport Harbor. Be sure to reserve and ask for an outside table. Of all things we had sushi which everyone really liked. Their big attraction is a shark feeding every hour but that was underwhelming..

Also, look up Adagio Art Studio at delfoxton.com. She is a very interesting artist, lives down the road from the house and will welcome you into her studio.

All in all a good time had for everyone and very relaxing for hard working students and their parents!

First class staff. Friendly and professional. World class beach - out of the way but the ability to have a 4 mile beach all to yourself was worth it if you are into that sort of thing. Everything that they said they would do they exceeded

“Beautiful home!”

Beautiful house on the beach. We had 7 people in our group and could not have found a better place to stay. 1/2 hour drive to town so make you get your supplies on the way from the airport. We traveled from one end of the island to the other and the Goodfellow's house is definitely where we would stay again.

The house accommodated our group of 10 perfectly! Beautiful views from all rooms. This house made our week in the Bahamas the greatest! It was everything we expected and more. Our daughters wedding took place on the beach and it was absolutely beautiful! We would certainly recommend the Goodfellow house!

“A Dream Come True”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

We could not believe the incredible location of this property, with 2 huge yards with coconuts in the tree for you, and then the beach as your backyard. The beach is not private, but we never saw anyone, including the few houses around the bend. We literally had the beach to ourselves as far as we could see either way. The tide would go out for a few hours each day, making a giant sand bar to lay out in the soft sand. You need water shoes for just a couple of feet of coral, but we took them off to go in the water to enjoy the soft sand.There was a lot of wind while we were there, so we didn't get to take advantage of the fire pit on the beach. It is named Tranquil Breezes, so it may always be windy. The house is great, with everything working except the jacuzzi tub in the master bath. But the automatic bedeau was really fun! There were 3 stray well mannered cats that we enjoyed, but seem that they would stay away if you don't. We had a private chef to make this perfect, as we only went to town one time for lunch and massages. A whole week playing on the beach, coming up only to freshen our drink and see what gourmet yummy we had awaiting us! Be sure to bring your own floats, or maybe buy in town, which you want to be sure to buy everything you need for a couple of days, because nobody will want to make the 20 minute trip.. Check in is 3pm and we arrived an hour early, asking if we could just put our food in frig. We did and then went to wait under the tiki hut on the beach when we saw our sheets blowing in the wind on the clothes line! Patricia was great and we could not be happier we found this gem!! Can't wait to go back.
