Ten bay only has a handful of villas and they were all vacant while we were there in November. This villa is directly on the water and easy to access by car. It was very easy to book via its official website.
The villa has a full kitchen including microwave, coffee maker, modern gas stove/oven, bbq grill, a flat tv with cable, vhs/dvd player, movies, books, snorkeling/fishing gear. We felt at home as soon as we set foot there.
The master bed is very comfortable and the room has a beautiful view on the carribean. AC works well, and there are ceiling fans.
The villa felt safe, windows/doors are secured by locks. There is a phone and internet connection (no computer), and my cellphone connected to the Bahama telco. Emergency numbers are provided.
A taxi will cost 45$ one way from the closest (GHB)airport. The drive is 20min/18miles. Mr Arthur Nixon which is the manager of this villa hooked us up with an old car for a mere 55$/day for the length of our stay, or 70$/day if we rent for less than the full length of our trip. Without a car you can't go anywhere. There are no scooters rental and I would strongly discourage riding a bicycle, if you ever find one. We thought that transport was kind of a ripoff. Except for grocery (or emergency/accident) there is no need to go somewhere else - this place is great for snorkeling, fishing, swimming, suntanning, kayaking and taking it easy.
The biggest inconvenient there was the sand fleas aka sand fly, beach flea, hop-a-long, no-see-um, biting midge, and punkie or punky. Do not take this advice lightly: BRING DEET! Seriously!
