Just what we’ve been looking for

20 Nov

As much as we like staying at Sunrise Marina in Freeport, Grand Bahama we were a little itchy to find something a little more aligned to our lifestyle (as well as more affordable…budgets you know!). Well, Robin found it the other day while doing an internet search. We are now docked at the product of her search. Sea Breezes Executive Suites is our new home for the next week or so.

To call it a marina would be a stretch as it is essentially a sea wall, on a canal, behind a house and some rental suites. The amazing thing about this place (besides the 20 cents per boat foot less docking fee AND free water) is that it is completely off grid. Everything is run off of solar power and a massive battery bank. We can plug into shore power night to keep our batteries topped off and not feel like we are cheating.

We are also just a short walk from an absolutely gorgeous beach. We took our old man/dog Banyan to the shore last night and he frolicked in the waves like he was a puppy again. The ocean has a restorative effect, even on a 17 year old dog.

 

You'd never know this place was off grid by the look of it.
