WELCOME TO OUR HOME

Here’s a bit about what to expect when coming to our very small island. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the island. Not much in the way of shopping and great restaurants, but natural beauty abounds. We’ve noted a few of our favorite things to do on the island.

What to bring:

• Bug spray is a must
• Sunscreen also a must
• Hats and sunglass encouraged
• Mostly casual dress on the island and most restaurants and activities are outdoors so plan accordingly

Currency

• Freeport uses Bahamian Dollars, but US dollars are accepted. Go to the ATM at the airport to get a few dollars, but then use the ATM at either banks noted below in the downtown area. Visa, Master Card and AmEx are all accepted on the island.

o Scotia Bank (West Explorer's Way, Freeport 42626)
o RBC (East Mall & Explorer's Way, Freeport F 40029)

Cell Phone

• You will be charged for international roaming in Bahamas. Call your carrier for special rates. AT&T has a pretty good plan for International Travel. Not sure about the other carriers, but they all have something to accommodate you on your trip.


Arrival to our home:

• Key to the apartment will be waiting for you at the front desk.

Car info:

• OPTION: Our car Saturn SUV rental and parking for $35 per day
She's named "soccer mom" it's an older, but well cared for Saturn mini SUV that seats 5 and has a large trunk. We book it separately at $35 per day, which is half the rate of the rental companies. Parking is in our covered spot. The car is insured and although is not pretty - it's perfect for the island. It's what we call a "stuff car" you can go to the beach and do all your stuff and not worry about messing up the car. The fees cover a tank of gas and cleaning at the end of your trip.
• If you rent a car, then park the rental car in visitors’ parking, which is on the left across from the tennis courts as you pull into the property

Kitchen

Our home is your home. The entire kitchen is at your disposal. You’re welcome to raid the pantry, coffee, teas, etc. The knives are on the wall next to the window.

Teas/Coffee

We are old school. We do not have a coffee maker, rather you’ll find the electric water kettle on the counter and the French press and the tea pot in the drawer to the left of the sink. Teas are in the pantry - PULL GENTLY. The Italian ground coffee is in the drawer in a clear vacuum container with a dark plastic pull. It’s all really good stuff!


Trash disposal

The trash is located in the lower cabinet in the kitchen island to the left of the cook top.
The large trash bin is located in the stairwell just beyond the elevator.

Laundry Room

Full sized washer and dryers are in the laundry room in the hallway across from the larger guest bedroom. Assorted laundry soaps, bleach and other cleaning products can be found in there.

Our housekeeper comes on Mondays. She only cares for the house. If you want laundry service or extra service please arrange with her directly. You can reach her via What’s App. Write me if you want her contact info. She has a day job, but with notice, may be able to come about 4:00 to help out.

Beach/Pool/Tennis/Equipment

• The beach, pool and tennis courts are all available at any time. No reservations are needed.

Freeport, Bahamas

The building is located at the end of Coral Road in the Coral Beach area. It's primarily a residential area, but a 15-minute walk (5-minute drive) to the grocery store, most restaurants and activities and area beaches.
