How long is it since you saw a fish leap in beautiful, sun-dappled, aquamarine water?
From my delightful one-bedroom apartment, you can look out over a lovely pool area to the beautifully clear aquamarine water of Bell Channel. Watch the sparkling white pleasure craft sail by throughout the day. Admire the reflections during the calm early morning and evening times and watch for those fish breaking the surface. If you feel so-inclined you could even try to catch a few!
The apartment is located in the sought after Lucaya area of Freeport, just minutes walk from beautiful white sand beaches and the ever-popular Port Lucaya Marketplace with its lively atmosphere, colourful shops and restaurants to suit every taste and pocket.
The buildings of Beauport Court are two-storey, white-walled and red-roofed in the attractive Spanish style and are set in neatly landscaped ground with palm trees and other tropical foliage.
The unit consists of an entrance hall, one bedroom with a queen size bed and ample storage, a living/dining room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The rooms are light and airy with ceiling fans and air-conditioning and the kitchen is well equipped with excellent appliances. The living/dining room has one whole wall of glass doors opening onto the balcony - perfect for al fresco dining!
The attractive pool area is well furnished with a bar on the waters edge where you can relax with a cool drink and enjoy the waterside location.
Laundry facilities are available on the complex. Public buses are accessible at the end of the street.
LOCATION AND AMENITIES
The island boasts an excellent infrastructure with good roads, public transport and reliable power, telephone and utilities.
There are also several championship standard golf courses, world class scuba diving, excellent boating and good fishing. There are various sports and social clubs, a theatre, cinemas and a wide choice of fine dining from the delicious local Bahamian fare to a range of international cuisine and gourmet restaurants.
Grand Bahama is just a short 25 minute flight from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or the Bahamas capital, Nassau, all of which have a large range of air links to the rest of the world.
Spread over a large expanse of Atlantic Ocean, the 700 islands of The Bahamas bask in breezy semi-tropical sunshine year round. About one hundred of the islands are minimally inhabited, and just a small handful has any kind of sizeable population.
Starting just 50 miles from the Florida coast, the archipelago swoops southeast for some 600 miles, almost to Haiti and Eastern Cuba. The capital, Nassau, is located on New Providence, while the second city, Freeport, is on Grand Bahama. The remainder of the islands, known as the Family Islands, including Andros, the Abacos, Eleuthera, and The Exumas, are very accessible, thanks to a couple of small, but very reliable, local airlines.
The greatest asset of these islands is the incredible sea, which they ornament. Colours range from pale crystal green in the Bahama banks to deep regal blue in Exuma Sound and the awesomely deep Tongue of the Ocean. The water is so clear that you hardly need a snorkel mask to view the astonishing array of marine life at the countless coral reefs. Following a close second to the water are the beautiful white sand beaches which surround the islands.
The apartment is located on beautiful Bell Channel, with a view over the pool and waterway. It is just a few minutes walk to the shops and restaurants of Port Lucaya and there is designated parking within the secure complex grounds
