The 2 bedroom, 2 bath house we call "Bimini Blue Tulip Cottage" is located adjacent the ocean with a lovely white sand beach in Alice Town, North Bimini. The sunsets you see here are amazing as well as the sound of the ocean waves gently rolling in all night. Typically there are Biminites at this popular spot as CJ's Deli (see many pictures of neighborhood on line) , is just steps away. There is usually music playing and frequently a party on the beach which typically subsides after sunset.
“The location of Rick’s house is perfect. Radio Beach—one of the most beautiful I’ve visited—is just steps away. If you’re looking for luxury accommodations and a lot of action, the house (and Bimini, at least in the off season) might not be for you, but if you want to unplug for a few days in a place where a nearly empty beach, drinks and food are right outside your door, it can’t be beat. Rick was an extremely helpful and communicative host. We had to cancel the first night of our stay due to transportation issues and it was no problem. He also contacted me several times prior to our visit to offer transit recommendations, often responding within minutes. Barry and his wife Bernette were also wonderful and can be counted on for reliable pickup and drop off at the seaplane or ferry—but be sure to hold on if you’re not used to riding on the back of a golf cart (which you’ll definitely want to rent to explore the island). It’s also worth taking a short walk south on the beach to see the shipwreck and abandoned houses. We really enjoyed the food too—especially conch and lobster pizza at Edith’s. Overall an amazing weekend, and we hope to be back!”
The Hideaway Ocean Breeze Way is located in the Alice Town, Downtown Bimini. Adventure, excitement, water sports, sport fishing, and world class diving – these are all unique elements found in Bimini. Bimini offers History and the friendly locals make your time here memorable. We are just steps away from an amazing beach and the historical dolphin house. Walk down to the Bimini Big game for a wonderful adventure on the waters or at the Radio Beach for some local cuisines.
“Great spot. Walkable to big game resort if you're a diver, also walkable to the local stores if you want to grab some ammenities. And if the local food spots are open, it's a great location for food too. Gilbert and his family were awesome. When we arrived at the ferry we took a cab (not their recommended cab driver) and the taxi driver took us to the wrong airbnb. Luckily, it was family of Gilbert and Ana and they gave us a ride to our actual airbnb where Gilbert met us. Soooo nice and went out of their way. The place was tidy, air conditioners worked well, and the beach is just steps away. We did buy more toilet paper as only 1 roll was provided and we stayed for numerous nights. The shower is an island shower- meaning it has lower water pressure and doesn't get hot, but I wasn't too put off by that, we just took faster showers. If you want to go to resortworld and the hilton, it's walkable but I'd recommend a taxi. We walked there but ended up getting a taxi back. Also, if you have to take the ferry to south bimini, we were able to get picked up at big game, which spared us a walk to the main ferry dock and spared us a cab ride when we had to get to the airport. All in all, it was a great place and I would definitely use this spot again in the future.”

“Mr. and Mrs. Smalls were so friendly, helpful and hospitable. We were so blessed to meet them, their kids and grandkids. Communication was excellent and prompt. We had a Bahamian and US number we could call/text. Check in was so smooth. Everything in this brand new place was spotless and we could have just shown up with our clothes and had everything we needed, even better than a hotel. The location was perfect as it was walking distance to the South Bimini Ferry, the best restaurant in the Bahamas, and the convenience store. Smalls Takeaway is just next door and had the best burgers, fish and conch we have ever tasted. No need to even go to North Bimini to eat. Have already recommended staying here to many of our friends and family. So glad we got to be amongst the locals in South Bimini instead of the rowdy hotels.”
