This has everything you would need to vacation in freeport and lay on the beach. Bikes, umbrellas, beach chairs, and much more. The owners are very helpful and friendly. It's a one stop place for anything you need.

Erika's place is exactly as advertised - I had two bedrooms and bathrooms, living area and small kitchen area to myself. There's the additional benefit of a small nature area to explore for bird watching; there are also two areas for sitting - one at the front and one at the back. I enjoyed Erika's hospitality and quick responses to my enquiries. I would recommend her place to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay in that area.

Was a great experience. Erika's home is beautiful and fairly close to the marketplace. Stones throw from the beach... they are super knowledgeable about things to do on the island and can put you in touch with the right people if you're interested in excursions, etc. The bikes definitely came in handy making quick trips to Port Lucaya easy as well.

We spend 4 days in the wonderfull home from Erika and Ed. The separate apartment with two separate Bedrooms for one kitchen and terrace was cleaned every day. From the terrace you look in the beautifull garden and Ed`s cat-house. All good, very quiet and uncomplicated. Comfortable, clean beds. Near by an beautifull beach and marketplaces. We`d come back. Thanks for the great and friendly host, Andreas and Marita from germany.

Where to start? There is nothing more reassuring than having someone greet you at the airport. We were quickly loaded up and on our way. We were given a brief tour of downtown, then off to the house. On the tour, we were shown the location of the grocery store and the Port Marketplace. After settling in, we were dropped off at the grocery store where we spent about 40 minutes finding everything we needed for our stay. About 2 minutes after we walked out, the staff pulled in to pick us up and return us to the house. In less than 3 minutes, you can walk to the beach. It's an 18 minute walk to the Port Marketplace where you will find lots to eat and buy (if you need to get something touristy). The property is also a bird sanctuary. Super neat and clean with amazing plants and birds all over. If you love cats, they have a rescue on the back of the property. Spent part of the day at the Garden of the Groves. Outstanding! Next trip we will stay again and take the kayak tour. I can't recommend this house and Erika highly enough. A+. 5 stars. 10 out of 10.

About Erika

Hallo ich bin Erika,
Ich bin in Deutschland geboren, lebe aber seit 1970 auf den Bahamas. Dort bin ich glücklich verheiratet und setze mich für die Flora und Fauna der Insel ein. Als Birder bin ich ständig auf der Insel unterwegs, um heimische und durchreisende Vögel zu erforschen. Ich habe das Buch " Natives of the Bahamas " - ein Leitfaden für die Vegetation und Vögel von Grand Bahama geschrieben und setze mich für naturfördernden Tourismus ein. Erleben Sie die Insel auf eine ganz persönliche Weise, nicht einfach als Tourist. Ich helfe Ihnen, Ihren Urlaub zu einem besonderen und unvergesslichen Erlebnis zu machen. Meine Nichte Barbara organisiert die Abläufe und Buchungen bei Airbnb. Sie kümmert sich um die eingehenden Anfragen und wird diese immer schnellstmöglich beantworten.

Hello, my name is Erika. I was born in Germany and have been living in the Bahama since 1970. I am happily married there and am very active in conservation of flora and fauna of the islands.

I wrote the book "Birds of the Bahamas", a guide to vegetation and birds of Grand Bahama Island and am an advocate for sustainable tourism. I want you to experience our island in a very personal way, not just as a tourist! I will assist you to have a very special and unforgettable vacation experience.
