Corner property, 10 minute drive to Atlantis. Beautifully decorated and extremely spacious. The apartment is attached to a house that is rented to guests as well.The living room opens out onto a latticed in courtyard and the barbeque area. The dining and kitchen are open plan, and the kitchen has a breakfast bar. The second bedroom opens out onto another patio and the garden. The third bedroom is very big, with it's own bathroom. Two extra beds can be put up if necessary. The place is very nicely furnished and decorated. Parking for 2 cars.
There's a cute (small) beach within walking distance (about a 15 minute walk) but it's better to drive to bigger beaches. The closest big beach is Montagu which is at the Eastern Foreshore, next to the Royal Nassau Sailing Club - just a 3 minute drive from the house. Montagu Beach is the site of historic Fort Montagu. It's a slice of white sand shaped in 6 small lagoons and palm trees gently waved by lovely sea breeze at the edge. There's something for every kind of sun worshipper or beach picnic lovers. It's a popular destination and generally busy during weekends and holidays , but it's virtually deserted during weekdays. Nearby is a fresh fishmonger market, where you can get the best catch direct from the boats (Grouper, Jack, Hog, Snapper, Conch ) .. But much better to drive to Paradise Island, there you will find the most gorgeous beaches!
Blackbeard's Tower is literally just around the corner. Blackbeard was the most famous pirate. Fox Hill is a few minutes' walk down the road. Here you will find a small grocery store, a couple of bars, churches and a post office. It's a very friendly community with lots of activity, e.g playing dominoes with the locals under the Fig Tree. You would probably enjoy a walk up this road.
This home is for the vacationer or family who really wants to relax and get the feel for the Bahamian way of life and enjoy the quiet, simple life. It is a pleasure that is hard to come by in this busy world or ours!...Read more
“This rental was above and beyond our expectations!”
Left on 03/02/2015 for a stay in February 2015 | Denise FReviewed Mar 2, 2015Stayed Feb 2015
First and foremost if you want to experience the real Nassau do not stay in a resort or visit on a cruise ship. We loved this property because we had complete privacy and serenity from the crowds in the city or in any resort. Obviously if you choose to rent this property you will a) need to take cab rides anywhere you choose to go b) take a bus but we decided to rent an economy vehicle during our stay which we would highly recommend! We found parking around Nassau very easy and only paid ONCE for parking during a one day visit to Atlantis in Paradise Island. This home is centerally located near all major attractions and its location is in a very safe nieghbourhood. If you aren't afraid to mingle with locals I would recommend you buy fresh lobster & fish at the Marina. This home was more then enough space for three people and could comfortably hold three couples. All bedrooms are very private and there is two bathrooms with showers and plenty of lounging areas. We loved spending our late evenings hanging out in that amazing back yard!! Honestly the only negatives about this home is that we all had to share the bathroom with the good water pressure since the one of the showers water pressure was very weak but that didn't even bother us but I feel its something I should mention for larger group of people intending to stay. Another note is that you will occasionally hear the nieghbours dogs barking but again it didn't even bother us. The kitchen is fully functioning and they provide you with a real coffee maker, rice maker etc and the home was very clean. We did not have problems with bugs or flying insects in or around the property. Again this is an awesome property and I am so grateful we were able to rent in for the duration of our trip in Nassau!
