About the property

A large luxury waterfront island villa, complete with pool, Car, Boat & Docks

Flamingo Lane is a luxury 4000 sq.ft., 5-bedroom waterfront island villa

Near beach, we are situated in a large canal basin with views over the water and our large pool surrounded by tropical gardens.

We have included a seven seat people carrier.

There is a 14 foot boat included along with a two person Kayak and paddle board for you to enjoy and explore the canal system. Should you bring your own boat dockage is available up to 50 foot. If you are experienced in small boat handling you can use our boat to potter around in, and if the weather is permitting even venture around to a beach only 4 minutes away.

This is a house built for entertaining! With multiple open plan living areas inside and 2000 sq. ft. of patio around the pool. Flamingo Lane is perfect for, group vacations and big families.

Getting to beaches is so easy. The bars, nightclubs, shops, casino, cafes, restaurants, beach bars and markets of Port Lucaya are just a 2 mile drive away. For those arriving by boat, we have 125' of deep water canal frontage (approx. 16' deep) to accommodate both small and large vessels, plus 30 and 50 amp shore power for which there is a charge. WiFi internet, TV and water hook up.

To ensure your quote is correct make sure you have the total number of people in your booking. The standard rate is for eight and for each person up to 12 there is an additional cost. If necessary please check our House Rules regarding number of people.

KITCHEN:

A huge open-plan space at the center of the house and leads into the TV Entertainment Lounge, the Formal Relaxing Lounge and the Dining Room. The close proximity to these other rooms allows the whole family or group to relax or do different activities but without being separated. The large island with granite counter-top serves as a meeting place for all guests. Ample seating is available - stools at the breakfast bar and stools at the round glass table (and a high-chair is available upon request at no extra charge). This makes it a great place to have breakfast altogether, mix drinks, and chat.

A separate door at the back of the kitchen leads to the UTILITY ROOM with a front-loading washing machine, a separate front-loading dryer, ironing board and iron.

DINING ROOM:

An airy and spacious room with a large dining table and six dining chairs, and overlooks our beautiful tropical front garden.

Situated at the front of the house, it is both open plan, so that guests do not feel confined, and also separate from the other living areas, to give a little privacy and quiet. The large dresser contains all the napkins, table mats and candles/candlesticks you may require for the perfect formal island dinner in the comfort of Flamingo Lane.

TV ENTERTAINMENT LOUNGE:

This open-plan room is great for everyday living. A bright floral three-piece suite, coffee table and two side tables are surrounded by big windows that overlook the tropical garden and pool. Glass double patio doors open out onto the covered porch. A large flat-screen TV with media player and speakers provide a great entertainment area for kids and adults. There is collection of books and novels, as well as a chess set, backgammon, board games and cards.

FORMAL RELAXING LOUNGE:

This open-plan room is set off by a very large, comfy three-piece suite in a soft, rich red fabric. Accompanied by a big coffee table and two side tables, this is a wonderful place to spend the evening inside with cocktails, watching the sun set over the water, as the glass double patio doors open out onto the covered porch and overlook the pool fringed by coconut trees and, beyond, the canal.

BEDROOM 1:

Very large room with king-size bed, walk-in closet and flat-screen TV. Glass patio doors (with full blinds) lead out to patio, pool and spa. En-suite bathroom with shower and spa bath.

BEDROOM 2:

Very large room with king-size bed, closets and flat-screen TV. Glass patio doors (with full blinds) lead out to private patio with BBQ grill and picnic table, and to the pool. En-suite bathroom with walk-in shower.

BEDROOM 3:

Large room with queen-size bed, large closet, flat-screen TV and dressing table with mirror. Looks out over our beautiful tropical garden. En-suite bathroom with double sinks, bath and overhead shower.

BEDROOM 4:

Queen-size bed and bunk beds with closet. Looks out over tropical garden. Bathroom is shared with Guest Bedroom 2 via a separate door in the hall. There is also access to a half-bathroom via the hall.

BEDROOM 5/STUDY:

Queen-size pull-out sofa bed (very comfortable) with desk and hanging closet. If preferred, this room can be used as an office or study.​

Complementary toiletries in all bathrooms. Hairdryer available in all bedrooms. Bath towels provided.

A baby cot can be provided upon request at no extra charge.

SWIMMING POOL:

​​​The 30' x 15' large swimming pool and adjoining jacuzzi spa is a focus for most guests, as you can imagine! Surrounded by coconut trees and frangipani and overlooking the canal, it is definitely our favorite spot, too!

PATIO AREA:

The patio area surrounding the pool and spa is approximately 2000 sq. ft. - plenty of room for entertaining. With several comfy loungers and separate pool towels provided, it is perfect for spending days relaxing in the sunshine or sunbathing. Around the corner from the pool is a patio sheltered by palm trees and complete with a BBQ grill, a big garden parasol for some shade and a large round picnic table for outdoor dining, drinking and entertaining.

COVERED PORCH:

The covered porch is often many guests' favourite place to relax in the evening. The sofa and armchairs all overlook the pool and, beyond, the canal - which provides a wonderful backdrop for the most beautiful sunsets (which we seem to be treated with almost every evening!) and the ideal spot for sundowners!

The house is situated in a large, quiet canal basin with a private dock. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe and the house has a code-operated gate at the front.

By boat (included), we are just a few minutes away from the ocean and beautiful beaches (often nobody else there…it's amazing). One of the best beaches is just outside of our canal entrance, less than 1/2 mile away. The boat is also ideal for just pottering around our waterway.

By car, we are a five minute drive to all the main attractions on the island: colourful Port Lucaya Market Place with many shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment at Count Basie Square.

On foot, one of the beaches is just a 1 mile walk away!

We would be close by to assist you should the need arise.

ACTIVITIES:

Only 60 miles east of the Florida coast, Grand Bahama has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and some of the clearest turquoise seas which make exploring the reefs with an abundance of colorful fish an amazing pastime - so make sure you bring along your underwater camera.

About Bob Errington

We first came to these beautiful islands from the UK in the early 70's and spent 10 years here working.

Upon retiring we returned to Freeport with our son Richard and bought our boat to live on while we built our house.

We then took off on our boat and spent 3 years enjoying the islands while our house was rented.

We would now like to give the opportunity for others to enjoy our beautiful home!

Bob Errington purchased this house in 2008

Why Bob Errington chose Bahama Reef

Lucaya is the hub of Freeport, almost everything that goes on in Freeport happens in Lucaya. Great restaurants, bars, shops, live entertainment under the stars in Count Basie square, casino, beach access, marina, and more. All less than 2 miles away.

Amazing House and Very Accommodating Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Carol greeted us upon our arrival at their perfectly appointed house. They reviewed their house rules and showed us around the property, which was beautiful. They offered guidance and suggestions for our time on the island and were always only a few steps away if we needed anything. The house was very clean with all the amenities of home. There was even spices and staples available for our use. It couldn't have been more easy to settle in.

During our stay, we thoroughly enjoyed the use of the pool, the kayak and paddle board, and the boat. We enjoyed exploring the canals and beaching the boat on the nearby shores of Manta Ray Bay. We were able to see so much marine life by simply sitting on the docks! There was a family of seahorses and many other tropical fish a few steps away. We fed the fish daily our leftover scraps and enjoyed watching them all eat. Our kids spent hours in the pool swimming and playing games. We also cast a few lines to try our luck with fishing with fishing poles that were supplied. We grilled out on the patio grill and relaxed on the covered patio daily. Mornings were splendid as the sun came up and we sipped coffee outside before it got too hot. The outside of the house was beautifully landscaped with a variety of beautiful tropical plants. We especially enjoyed the night jasmine.....the smell was incredible.

Other activities we enjoyed on the island included the Lucayan Marketplace, which we traveled to by public transport, which was inexpensive. We spent one day at the annual coconut festival on the east end of the island. It was awesome to live like the locals for a day, enjoying the beaches, local food and drinks. We also explored the Lucayan National Park and the mangrove trails were beautiful. The highlight of our excursions was our snorkeling trip to Paradise Cove. The reef was so clear and beautiful and full of aquatic wonders including sea turtles, baracuda and other tropical fish.

Bob, Carol and Richard hosted us for an evening aboard their boat and we enjoyed getting to know them. Truly wonderful people and very gracious hosts. We look forward to a return vacation.

Super Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

No complaints here! The house was fantastic as were Bob & Carole. They left contact information for a taxi driver, boating, and various things to do on the island. The house is very clean, cozy beds, and had all we needed. Great outdoor space as well. The pool was a bit on the chilly side but refreshing, didn't keep us out.
