What Past Guests Are Saying
Good location,funky and charming.
My husband, our daughter and I stayed there for a week. The studio was basic, nicely furnished. The towels were changed every day and the maid cleaned up every day. The whole staff was nice and helpful. The beach is beautiful and away from the crowd gathering by the atlantis resort. Just move to the right and you get all the space you want on the beach! There is a bar/ grill restaurant on the location,Viola, very convenient, food is local and good and they have entertainments on special nights. There are two swimming pools, cool and clean. You can walk to many resorts, including atlantis, small shopping center. It takes you 10 mns driving to go over the bridge connecting the island to Nassau. The only negative for us was the sofa/ convertible where our daughter slept that was very unconfortable, we complained, the manager ordered a new mattress but it was never delivered before we left. I would try to rent two rooms next time.Also, the curtains in the living room were falling apart.The whole property starts to be a bit run down and probably needs some renovation for the future. In March, it seems that it is harder to swim in the ocean, the waves were too dangerous, red flags all week long. I would not take children to swim there, maybe later is the ocean calmer?...

Thank you for your comments. You are referring to Sunrise Beach Resort at another location. We have private rentals at Sunrise and do not have single bedrooms. Our places are all distinctly decorated and maintained by our own management team. Issues you encountered should be presented to Sunrise Beach Club itself, who are responsive in addressing concerns also. Pleased you had a good time overall at this wonderfully located property.

Relaxing, Beautiful stay!
Amazing service all around, beautiful stay. Ocean view just a few feet from your door. Modern bathrooms and lovely kitchen. You can tell they really took the time to keep it all up to date. Close enough to walk to all shops and restaurants but far enough to feel private and away from all the chaos. The pool is always cleaned spotless and during the night it looks so pretty in the center with its back lighting. Constantly service works picking up and cleaning up to make sure everything was in perfect order. We had the best honeymoon experience and will be back for years to come! Thank you Sunrise Beach Villas!

Thank you for your positive feedback. We are thrilled you had a good
time and look forward to having you back.
Amazing! Can't wait to come back!!
We just got home from an amazing stay at the villas! We had house #16 which has an awesome beach front view of Cabbage Beach. When i walked in, I was speechless! Huge 4 bedroom house with a huge patio overlooking the ocean. Jet Ski and Banana Boat rentals right out front!
Viola's is the bar/restaurant they have on property and all the food there was delicious! I think we went through the whole menu while we were there for 6 days. Great music and atmosphere! The bar staff was awesome!
A huge shout out to one of our favorite servers Latonya! She rocked! She was always happy and made our meals and drinking times fun and exciting! Also the bartenders made delicious drinks and took great care of us (especially Simmons).
We had an amazing time and we can't wait to come back... hopefully another trip this year! Thanks again to everyone at Sunrise Villas for making our stay amazing! :)

Sunrise Beach is a great location and has terrific staff.
Our villas are ocean view and are not the very direct one of #16 mentioned in this review.
However the environment is a perfect location to visit, wherever one may stay.
Fabulous Family Vacation
Our entire family (7 adults and one toddler) stayed in unit #5 (Tranquility Sunrise) for two weeks. The villa was perfect for us (4 bedrooms) fronting right onto the pool. The beach was about a 100 foot walk and down some stairs. The location of this property is great. It is about a 5 minute walk from atlantis and other restaurants and stores. Taxi's are very easy to find and the water taxi under the bridge takes you right into downtown Nassau.

This is a private rental managed by another owner and am delighted you enjoyed your stay.Our rentals are again located at Sunrise.

Great location, subpar condo
Our family decided to stay at the Sunrise Beachfront Villas after seeing what it would cost to stay at atlantis for five nights with six adults and two babies. We did not have much to choose from since we booked our trip in early May for a late June stay. The room assigned to us was 220. It was a third story suite with no elevator so carrying two strollers and babies up and down for five days was a pain. The a/C in the condo never fully worked and the temp in the place was 78 even though we had the thermostat set at 60 degrees. The great room fan was broken the entire trip so that just made it even more uncomfortable. The bed squeaked terribly and is in badly need of being replaced. The televisions are from the early 90's and the reception was quite grainy. The WiFi they have is slower than molasses. The average speed was just a little under dial up, yes dial up (56K) from the 1990's. They charge you for this like $11 / day but what choice do you have? The pool was dirty with dead bugs floating around where they have a little cave. With all that aside, the location was great as it was only a short walk to atlantis. The private beach for Sunrise wasn't so private as the swindlers wanted $10 / beach chair and $20 / umbrella. When we checked out, we misplaced two of the room keys sow were charged $40 / key. Figures they would showed up while at the airport. All in all, I would never stay at Sunrise again. If I were to do it over again, I would bite the bullet and pay the ransom atlantis charges.

We are a private rental and this review does not apply to us.It appeared on our list to approve but you did not stay with us. I am sorry you had the experience you described at the hotel and suggest you direct your comments to the management about the issues you encountered.
Villa and grounds are beautiful
We stayed in villa 12 and it was gorgeous. A family of 5 had enough room to spread out. The kitchen had everything you could think of. The grounds are very clean and security is always around. You are in a private section of the villas where you need a special key to get to this section. That means are pool was more private and it was a very quiet area. We quickly made friends with two other families with children and it was perfect. You can walk to atlantis very easily and the aquarium and the dig are free after 5. We rented a car and explored Nassau. The straw market, fish fry, zoo, and pirate museum were great. The market over the bridge in Nassau is huge and way cheaper than the little market near atlantis. The locals shop here and they have liquor store that is reasonable in the plaza. We used the grill at our villa everyday. The restaurant on site violas was one of our favorite places to eat out in all of Bahamas. The service, food, prices can not be beat. The only downside of this location is the beach. You may not be able to swim everyday. Google cabbage beach. A lot of drownings every year. A women who braided my hair on beach called it suicide beach. Yes we did have scary incident where my 5 yr old got dragged out when he was only up to his ankles. I wrote about it on sunrise villas site. I like to be able to swim every day on vacation and not have to worry about the red flag is out and we can't go near the ocean on vacation. We live near cape cod and are all strong swimmers( including 5 yr old) but this beach is very dangerous. Other than that sunrise villas is beautiful and the owner of our villa John was very easy to work with. His villa is one of the best. Our new friends were in awe when they saw our villa!

Thank you for the positive comments. The beach is a spectacular sandy beach and I advise visitors to obey the flag. Going down the beach will bring you to a gentle cove-suitable for snorkelling-short distance.
We advise swimmers to follow the rule swim parallel to a beach.
Great rental property, perfect location, and
Great vacation location! This location allows you steps to the private pool and close proximity to the beach. I recommend that if you’re doing any activities at atlantis that you purchase tickets and passes when you book your trip. While I booked the activities at atlantis in advance, I didn’t purchase the day passes which were sold out when we arrived. Viola’s restaurant was perfect on those lazy days for a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner, without having to walk to atlantis or taking a cab to another restaurant across the bridge.
The property was nice and adequately priced. The other property owners who were vacationing at the same time were very nice and the kids all played together in the private pool. The owner, John was very helpful in assisting us during the latter part of our vacation since we ended up staying a few extra days due to inclement weather and flight cancellations. Mrs. Knowles was also helpful in providing information and helping to replenish items when they ran low. We will be back!

Thank you for your detailed response. We look forward to ensuring vacationers have an enjoyable stay.
Stayed here with our teenage daughters, loved close proximity to everything. Walked everywhere! Stumbled into the pool it was so close and walked around the pool to get to the beach great!

thank you for your comment and look forward to have you come back in the future
Sunrise villas (unit 12a) are amazing!
'Great vacation location! 'Very peaceful and quiet! (and you can walk to atlantis for more action) 'Lovely pools, landscaping, and decor. Unti 12a partially views the ocean. Unit has a very beachy/Zen feel to it. Owner very responsive and easy to work with. Reasonable restaurant on the premises. The beach is now near a drop-off zone for cruise ship people, so it got a bit crowded with these folks, plus the locals selling their wares to the cruise shippers.

Thank you for your comments. We take pleasure in providing
a relaxing vacation.
Good Location for the Money
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the sunrise beach villas. Highly recommend having your groceries delivered on the day you arrive,since the onsite restaurant served mainly bar food. Its nice that the beach was only a short walk, and we had the pool to ourselves most days, its also within walking distance to the ferry and bookings for excursions. Could have used a few minor repairs (sink handle in kitchen fell off, shower head was loose, wi fi access and phones were down) but overall it was clean with plenty of towels everyday. The beach does get busy with lots of yelling from cabbies, vendors selling you on the beach, ect... but to be expected in this part of the Bahamas. A decent compromise to the hustle bustle of atlantis and nice stroll down to the One and Only Beach Club, which I recommend for dinner. We took a cab there and walked the beach back :) Overall a good value, good for big groups.
