| 10 min read

Located off the coast of Florida, the Bahamas is a tropical Caribbean archipelago renowned worldwide for its sandy beaches and crystalline waters. Comprising 700 islands and more than 2,000 coral reefs, the country is teeming with luxuriant greenery, local wildlife, and breathtaking natural landscapes. It is thus no wonder that the place has been likened to paradise on earth, and draws up to six million tourists every year.

If you’re looking for the best way to experience the Bahamas, look no further. Here are some superb Airbnb vacation rentals in the Bahamas, each located on a different island of the nation, for a truly unique tropical getaway.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 08, 2024.

1. Avant-garde alabaster: villa along Alabaster Beach, Eleuthera (from 750 USD)

Freedom is the translation of beautiful Eleuthera’s name, as well as all you’ll feel on your stay in this residence. Experience a visit free from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in this luxurious villa, a stand-alone structure on the shores of Alabaster Beach. Known as ‘the cool house’, this avant-garde villa stands on wooden columns, solitary along the sands of this stunning beach. The contemporary image of this villa extends to its interiors; as you step in, prepare to be greeted by furnishings as white as the soft sand outdoors. The impression of immaculate, high-class living extends to other areas of the home. Take for example this dining room, furnished with white honeycombed shelves and curved swivel chairs. Who says simplicity has to be boring? The predominant white of the villa allows for a better appreciation of nature’s hues, for instance the stunning sunset view from the patio. Following a fun day at the beach, turn on the air-conditioning and jump into this plush, canopied bed for a good night’s sleep.

Looking to bring the kids or your friends on the ultimate marine adventure in the Bahamas? Let the adventure extend to your accommodation in this sleek, spacious yacht, docked in Freeport, Grand Bahama. Berthed by a thriving garden, this yacht makes for a peaceful yet novel residence. As you step onto the boat, the first sight that greets you is the shady outdoor lounge, perfect for a drink, conversation, or even playing one of the boat’s board games on a lazy day. Take some time to explore the boat for a true sailor’s experience. Ascend the stairs to the helm as you envisage yourself as a sailor on the high seas. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, the trampoline towards the bow of the boat makes for great entertainment as well! After a long day, consider unwinding within the yacht’s mahogany-lined interiors. These quarters, fit for a sailor, feature yet another lounge, along with a well equipped kitchen. Capacious yet compact, the yacht houses 3 bedrooms, each with a double bed. Descend to the yacht’s lower storey for a good night’s rest after a long day out.

Live with the aquatic wonders of the Bahamas in your backyard (quite literally!) with this dreamy stilt house in Andros, home to the third-largest barrier reef in the world! Sitting just off the shore, this sunny home overlooks the waters of Fresh Creek in all their glory. Famous for its wide range of fishing game, Fresh Creek is a popular getaway for anglers. Check out some of its unique wildlife in the video below:

Akin to its golden exteriors, the interiors of this home exude a mellow, homey feel, fitting of repose from a long day away. Step into the living room of this abode, where open waters are a hop, skip, and jump away – literally! Lure in a barracuda or grouper from right outside your door and prepare a scrumptious seafood meal in the kitchen and dining area. After a long day of fishing, snorkeling, or exploring the refreshing waters of the basin, this deck is the perfect place to admire the majestic Bahamian sunset. Retreat to this lovely bedroom, with an en suite bathroom, for a good night’s rest, and wake up to shimmering waters beneath the sunrise.

17. Paradise in pink: cottage along a pink sand beach, Harbour Island

In the northeast of the Bahamas group lies Harbour Island, home to one of the most beautiful pink sand beaches in the world. Caused by coral mingling with regular sand, the rosy sands of this shore stretch for three miles (4.8 kilometers). Stay with this natural beauty at your doorstep with this cottage by the beach. Stepping stones pave your final steps to the front door of this holiday home, bordered by verdant flora such as coconut trees. Piña coladas, anyone? Suites in this accommodation are rented for a range of prices, depending on the number of guests. No matter which suite you choose to stay in, wake up every morning to the bright Bahamas’ sunshine streaming in through your blinds, beckoning you to the beach beyond. At long last, what you came for: one of the most beautiful beaches, just beyond your back door!

Fun fact: did you know the pink color of the sands is caused by coral-based organisms from offshore reefs? These reefs also break the impact of strong currents from the sea beyond.

If you’re looking to explore beyond the beach, your friendly host Kim would be more than happy to assist.

Kim sent us a list of all available activities and contacts in advance which made things super smooth from airport to water taxi to island. […] Everyone on the island was helpful and loves Kim so they were very happy to help. Diana
After a sizzling day at the beach, turn up the air-conditioning and relax in the living room of your suite. Mellow tones and floral furnishings give the place a calm yet tropical accent, perfect for kicking back and indulging in some evening television. Or, you could retreat to the idyll of the upstairs patio. Bask in the glow of the Bahamian sunset among woven furniture and feathery ferns. Watch as the light of the sun gives way to a scintillating blanket of stars above.

19. Treehouse cottage with a view in Gregory Town

For couples planning to stay in North Eleuthera’s Gregory Town area, this cottage hosted by Kimy is a cozy place to live in. The place is a tiny house and is, by no means, anything luxurious that some might expect from the Bahamas. Homey and charming is exactly this home’s vibe. While it is small, there’s still a kitchen that guests can use, as well as a shared pool within the vicinity. This quirky vacation rental is a one-block walk to grocery shops, surf shops, restaurants, and other establishments.
