Corner property, 10 minute drive to Atlantis. Beautifully decorated and extremely spacious. The cottage 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!
