The owner Marlene was very responsive! Great choice of a place to stay! Clean, nice marina, easy access to ocean, N Bimini, and airport And the staff have good customer service. After I checked out, Sherry ran me down because I accidentally overpaid by two hundred dollars because they stuck together.
Overall good experience.
Lovely condo in a boating community. The condo was very comfortable and clean., the beds and bedding were even comfortable, which we don't usually find. We really enjoyed our stay there, the beach is beautiful and the infinity pool is a lovely way to cool off after a hot day in the sun. This was our first time to Bimini and our decision to stay at The Sands was based on its location to the Shark Lab where our daughter was working, and the property did not disappoint. The unit was spacious and comfortable, the restaurants on North Bimini were a lot of fun as well as tasty, and we experienced some of the best snorkeling we ever have. A note for other non-boating first-timers: during the hot buggy evenings, that walk to and from the ferry to North Bimini can seem much longer than it really is, make sure you're prepared! It was a lovely trip, thank you. We'll be back and definitely request to stay in your unit!
Very nice, updated apartment, clean, beautiful view over the marina.
Great property in paradise
The unit was very nice and clean. The resort complex is showing signs of neglect but we heard it was being purchased by a new owner that has plans to revitalize in the future. Could be a really great destination!
Great place to stay if you have a boat. Also, be ry convenient to the dock and the private beach.
Great option for boaters/divers/fisherman. Easy access, convenient dockage and comfortable accommodations.
Condo unit is clean, comfortable and accommodated all our needs for our trip to Bimini. Very convenient unit close to dock and your boat which you can see from unit balcony. Owner was helpful in arranging rental.
