Bahama Bay Resort Vacation Rentals

Bahama Bay Resort - A Vacation Rental Condo Resort

The Caribbean Island themed resort of Bahama Bay is a gated vacation rental condominium community which comprises over 310 two and three bedroom apartments. The resort has been built on the edge of the picturesque Lake Davenport and is surrounded by over 65 acres of Florida native woodland. Bahama Bay Resort is also well located for the Disney parks and all the Orlando attractions.

Staying at Bahama Bay Resort

Bahama Bay Resort in Davenport, Florida is a secure gated environment which is only a matter of minutes away from some of the best theme parks on the planet. The upscale, fully air conditioned, 2 and 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartments here are furnished to a very good standard and are designed to provide spacious open plan living. The apartments also vary in size and range 1,200 up to 1750 sq. ft. All of the Bahama Bay vacation rental homes have individually screened, enclosed patios or balconies and come with great views, which include lookouts out over the lakes, or the swimming pool area, or over the extensive gardens. All the condominiums come with cable TV and fully-equipped kitchens which are fitted with modern appliances.

Aside from the vacation homes themselves, Bahama Bay Resort offers a very extensive range of amenities to its guests. These begin with the manned gated entrance with 24 hour security and once inside, you can't help but notice the attention to detail that's gone into both the design and maintenance of the resort. Built around a naturally formed lake, the designers of Bahama Bay added a white sandy beach which gives a ‘sitting on a Caribbean Island feel' to guests sunbathing.

The very impressive and huge 17,000 sq.ft colonial style clubhouse and Recreation Center has to be seen to be believed. This offers facilities such as a fully staffed lobby with a concierge service, several restaurants, a grocery store, a fitness center, a kid's play area with water features. Like everything else on the resort, the pool is large and impressive, as is the dock for fishing in the lake.

Overall, Bahama Bay Resort is generally impressive and provides a true resort vacation for guests. But make no mistake, it's a busy place and so anyone looking for something quiet and relaxing may feel that this is not for them.

Reaching the Attractions from Bahama Bay Resort

Florida is the top travel destination in the world and 2016 saw the arrival of over 112.8 million visitors to the Sunshine State. The entire state enjoys its share of tourism, but it's Central Florida and in particular Orlando that sees the lion's share of these visitors. And if Orlando is the main attraction in Central Florida, then it's the theme parks that are the main attraction in Orlando. Over the past sixty years Orlando has been transformed by the arrival of the likes of Disney World® and Universal Studios.
Central Florida's theme parks, whilst mainly in Orlando, are also spread south down as far as Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Bahama Bay Resort. But it's not just about the theme parks and attractions; if you want to take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just feel like chilling at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, then either one of these can be done on a day out. Both of these beaches are within a 90 minute drive of Bahama Bay Resort.

Golf and Bahama Bay Resort

With its subtropical climate and year-round sunshine, Orlando is a true golfer's paradise. The average annual temperature of 72.4 degrees makes it a great place to work on your game - or forget about it altogether and just have fun. Orlando boasts a plethora of public courses and meticulously landscaped private courses (many allow limited public play) who welcome visitors of all skill level. So, if you're a beginner looking to brush up on your game, there's a course for you, and if you're a pro looking to challenge yourself on a wide range of different layouts, there are several courses for you.

Shopping and Eating near Bahama Bay Resort

So, if you want to treat the kids to dinner, then we could probably name a restaurant or two that are within a ten to fifteen minute drive of Bahama Bay Resort.

Finding a Supermarket
When it comes to grocery shopping, there are three large supermarkets (Super Walmart, Publix and target) within a few minutes' drive of Bahama Bay Resort. So, you won't need to be on the road too long before getting those essential supplies.

Non-Supermarket Shopping
Outside of food shopping and still remaining relatively local, you'll have to drive a few miles west on the I-4 (towards Tampa), you'll find Posner Park where there's an IMAX theater plus a selection of restaurants and shops which among other include: JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
OK, so we all know that visiting the parks and laying by the pool sunbathing and listening to playlists on Spotify can be pretty relaxing, but give it six or seven days and you'll probably start dreaming of some retail therapy, or if not you, then maybe your loved ones will. Well, all is not lost. Orlando has a wide and varied range of shops on offer that can provide some unusual shopping experiences. So, first thing is to get in the car and head east towards Orlando. In Orlando you'll find a range of shopping options on offer. Designer brands and the latest in fashion trends are always in style at The Mall Millennia and The Florida Mall where shoppers will find top department stores offering incomparable service. Orlando's designer outlets, including Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, feature a wide selection from the world's top designers at incredible savings. With this many shopping opportunities within 30 minutes driving distance, you had better bring a backup credit card.

The Bahama Bay Resort Weather

When staying in Florida, you'll never be more than seventy five miles from the coast, so as a result, the weather everywhere in the Sunshine state is influenced by the ocean. On top of that, the weather in the state is divided into two. The climatic split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state. The region to north of the lake, which is where Bahama Bay Resort is located, experiences weather which is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Bahama Bay Resort, Davenport, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the Fall, Winter and Spring months and extremely hot and humid weather during the period of June thru to September. Florida is not known the Sunshine state by accident, the sun shines on most days and the temperature rarely ventures below 32°F / 0°C. Which explains why, over the past fifty years, Disney and Universal Studios have both made Florida, and in particular Orlando, their home.

If you visit Orlando's theme parks and attractions outside of the summer months, you should have a relatively dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be very hot and very humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

Other Communities to Consider

Bahama Bay Resort offers a decent range of vacation rental homes and it's well located for the parks, but we advise you to also check out other similar rental communities and resorts which are often sited within a few miles of Bahama Bay Resort and where you might find other properties of interest. While It's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in Kissimmee. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, why not check out Bella Toscana and also, if you're into golf, Highlands Reserve . If you're looking to keep costs down, then we'd suggest looking at Crescent Lakes . Looking at vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde, which again is close to the parks.

If the rental rate is not a major constraint, then we'd adise you to look at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee, Davenport and Clermont is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; determine your requirements including the intended travel dates and the number of people traveling before contacting as many homeowners as needed. This will allow you to determine which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be price, availability, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision.

Driving to Bahama Bay Resort

As the most visited destination in the U.S. and the world's theme park capital, Orlando is the epicenter of tourism activity in the USA. As a result, all major US airlines and a large number of international airlines operate substantial flight schedules into and out of Orlando throughout the year. Orlando is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Bahama Bay Resort.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and although sometimes more convenient, Sandford, offers much less choice of routings in and out of Orlando. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Bahama Bay Resort, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Bahama Bay Resort from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching the Celebration Avenue (exit #2). Keep right to take ramp towards US Hwy-192 in a westerly direction. Once on Hwy 192 W, drive for 6 miles before turning left towards Westside Boulevard, then after just less than 2 miles turn right onto Florence Villa Grove Road. Continue on for just over half a mile before turning right onto Gran Bahama Boulevard.

Highway 192 is the area's primary tourist road, so as you drive along it you should notice a very large number of tourist shops and restaurants.
