Highly recommend a stay @ this condo. Not only are the accomodations first rate but the location, the staff and Russ, the owner are all five star. Planning my return trip already.

If you want a great safe complex as your Orlando base then look no further.
From here you are less than 30 minutes from all of Disney and 40 minutes from Universal.
However the complex itself has a good gym and a number of great swimming pools. The one we used was just behind the condo and was never full allowing plenty of beds to sunbathe on and the grounds and pool area were always clean and tidy with the staff always being polite and friendly. The restaurant was also very good (although a little pricey $40 for 2 pizzas) but made a change if you are late home and not able to stop on the way home.
The condo itself was more than adequate for a family although we were disappointed with the Lanai which could only accommodate 2 people.
Apart from this the condo was perfect for our stay and were made to feel very much at home.
The good thing is you are never far away from somewhere to eat, shop or get petrol and this was very important.
We stayed here in early December and even before our trip, we decided to stay an extra day. Russell was incredibly accommodating to us. We got down to the condo and was surprised at how nice it was, since we have had bad experiences a few times while we vacationed. The place was clean and everything worked. Spacious and inviting. There is even a little charcoal barbecue across the way for a nice picnic, if you want to do hamburgers or hot dogs. We loved it. The splash pad and playground were really nice for my niece. Nice and clean. We also loved the free wi-fi. We'll definitely be stating again and even told a few friends about it who are planning a trip to Florida.
It was close to Walmart, Target, Publix, and Dollar Tree. Also close to fast food restaurants and sit down restaurants too. The parks were minutes away and pretty easy to find, which was nice. It was even down the road from Old Town Kissimmee.
The only problem that we had was the directions to the the condo from the airport. The directions didn't tell the distances, only to turn on this road or that road. It was a little frustrating until we pulled up a GPS app, then it was fine. So you may want to have a GPS or your phone handy. Also, you'll want to have some change ready when coming from the airport for the toll roads.
I absolutely love this condo We stayed here the last two years while visiting Florida It is an exceptional place to stay with lots of room and every convenience needed
An excellent property, in a superb location with excellent facilities. My wife and I have been holidaying in Florida since 1984 so we have stayed in many hotels, villas and apartments, the Bahama Bay Resort is up there with the good ones. We were initially attracted by the price and location, we did not need 3-befrooms but at the price offered we had to book it and we were not disappointed. The Bahama Bay resort is a beautiful, gated resort with stunning views, and very quiet. The resort is laid out in blocks and each block has it's own pool so they are not crowded at all. The UK based owner Russell was excellent in all his communication, before, during and after our stay. We had a minor problem on arrival with the remote key access code, which was however, resolved swiftly, and even though it was a stateside issue, Russell kindly emailed immediately from the UK, so we could not have asked for more. The property itself is spacious and has all the requirements you would expect, and if the rental prices remain as competitive as they are currently we will definitely be booking again for our next trip. Thanks again Russell

I have only possitive things to tell about our stay during our Family vacation. We have been planning this trip for about two years. Since the beginning, the owner, Russ, was very helpfull and understanding. Going the extra mile to get me all the information I needed. The house itself was a home for us. We were a party of 8. And everybody slept well. We had two teenage boys who ofcourse did not want to sleep side by side on the sofa bed, but they had no problem putting down the cushions of the sofa bed and making their own bed on the floor. So one slept on the sofa bed and the other on the floor and they rotated every day. The property is pretty central to all the parks we went. Less then 30 min drives to all the major attractions which for us is very close. There is a wallmart supercenter(open 24 hours) about 10 min drive from were we where do we ended up every evening on there after any park we went that day. The only negative part is that we had to call the front desk twice for our above neighbours. The had children who were running and jumping around at 2 am in the morning. So we could hear them clearly. But that is one thing you dont have in hand. You must be lucky to have quite neighbours or call like we did and they send security over. All in all, we want to thank the owner Russ for having us and for helping in everything. We will recommend Bahama Bay Resort to our friends and family
We rented the condo for our Universal Studios trip in the beginning of September. It had everything that we needed and was very spacious. We had the pool and the volleyball court to ourselves which was fabulous! Honestly, the time spent on-site at Bahama Bay was the most relaxing part of my vacation and the second half of the trip was in an ocean-front condo! I highly recommend checking out the extras on-site! Also, the price was fabulous and helped to balance out the heavy spending required inside Universal! Definitely worth every penny! Thanks Russell!
