This is a lovely house with a gorgeous view of the ocean. It is set up perfectly, with an open, well equipped kitchen, split floor plan, and fantastic patio. The area is quiet and safe, away from the busy parts of the island. We enjoyed driving around the island and visiting many different sights. The locals are very friendly, and make you feel so welcome. We found many nice restaurants, but it was also nice to be able to cook some meals at the house. Cathy is great, and gave us many good restaurant and beach suggestions, like Seafront Sushi and Cabbage Beach. Cathy, you were right about Cabbage Beach, it is the loveliest beach we saw there, thanks!
Response from the owner Thank you for the wonderful Review. I am happy that everyone enjoyed Cabbage Beach, it is the loveliest beach in my opinion too. I agree the view from our Ocean Paradise Villa is absolutely gorgeous and the colors of the sunset and dawn are absolutely amazing. Many guests mention that they enjoyed the quiet neighborhood which is away from the busy, touristy side of the island. We have a large blue binder with numerous restaurant, things to do and places. Please email and let us know your favorite dream excursion.
“Peaceful, quiet vacation villa, with great access for snorkeling”
When we first arrived at the villa, we were a little disappointed. There were issues with the plumbing, the clothes dryer didn't work, one AC unit squealed intermittently, and there were no paper towels as advertised. HOWEVER, after contacting Cathy, she did what she could to resolve most issues, sending out a plumber and a dryer repairman. She was extremely pleasant to work with, and made follow up calls to make sure everything was OK. The villa is nice, but could use some updating (i.e., some patio chairs were broken, bathrooms could be updated). Also, the housekeeper could be more attentive, especially outside where an ashtray was left overflowing and dirty plastic drink cups were left. The pool liner was dirty, and it was suggested to the owner that an automatic pool vac might help with this. If these issues were addressed, I would raise my rating to excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the back terrace, in spite of the above issues. The kids enjoyed coming back at the end of the day and snorkeling out back more than anywhere else. They found queen conch, starfish, crabs, stingrays, and a variety of shells and fish. This became our favorite place to hang out in the evening. You will need to rent a car if you stay here. We rented a van through Avis, which worked out great. Driving here can be a little crazy, but you will quickly adjust unless you happen to be a nervous driver. There is a Super Value food store near the villa, but we found food to be so expensive there that we ate out most of the time (I researched inexpensive restaurants on Trip Advisor prior to our trip--very helpful!). We also ordered pizza from Marco's, delivered to the villa. It was very good and no more expensive than in the U.S. For excursions, I recommend Flying Cloud sail & snorkel to Rose Island, and a trip to Blue Lagoon to swim with the Dolphins (expensive, but worth it!). Paradise Ocean Sports has a good package deal, but ONLY if there aren't many passengers as they promise more than they can deliver in the time allotted. Check out all the beaches if you have time as each has something different to offer. I realize none of this is related to the villa, but hopefully the information will be helpful to some of you. We will likely never return to New Providence as we prefer to explore a variety of islands. However, if we should change our minds, we would stay at this villa again.
Response from the owner Dear Penny, I wanted to thank your husband for bringing all of the issues mentioned above to my attention on the night of your arrival. I really appreciated that and as a result everything was put back in order in a timely fashion as you mentioned. That is everything except the cloths dryer which took a few days to repair. The dryer belt had popped and it took the technician a few days to find the exact type to replace it. Again, thanks again for bringing all of the above to my attention and everything is now in perfect order. All patio chairs have been checked and I have taken your husband's suggestion to put a large size, more modern toilet in the bathroom. All of your suggestions are helpful as it is my aim to ensure that our guests feel that they are home away from home. I've decided to make a checklist for the housekeeper so that she does not forget to collect items outside the Villa that the previous guests may have left behind. I am looking into purchasing an automatic pool vac., however, our pool serviceman visits twice a week. I am happy that you and your family including the grandkids thoroughly enjoyed the back terrace. I am glad that the kids enjoyed snorkelling from our back patio more than anywhere else. Most guests snorkel and swim outback which is approximately 30 feet from our sliding door exit from our Living Room. There are numerous marine life in the sea behind our Ocean Paradise. There are queen conch, starfish, crabs, stingrays, and a variety of shells and fish. I am excited to hear that our back patio with the Spectacular, Breath- Taking Views of the sea was your favorite place to hang out. We will definitely enjoy having you stay with us again next year!
My family just spent 8 days in Nassau at Ocean Paradise. It was a fantastic location for a relaxing beach vacation. We swam in the ocean every day and enjoyed the fabulous views/ The house was in good shape and very well suited to families.I have used Vrob for many years and Catherine was a great hostess. We will definitely book this house again.
Response from the owner We are happy that you and your family had a great time at our Ocean Paradise! As mentioned, Ocean Paradise is a fantastic location for a relaxing beach vacation. Our guests usually swim every day in the warm, crystal clear sea which is a few steps from the doors of our Villa. They enjoy taking photos of the gorgeous fish and other marine life in the ocean at our Villa. The views from our patio facing the ocean are breath taking, gorgeous and spectacular. Our Ocean Paradise is well suited for families and small groups of people who desire to experience a relaxing vacation on the oceanfront. We are a short drive of ten to fifteen minutes to a wonderful Water Park, Dolphin Encounters, Powerboat Adventures and numerous other excursions, restaurants and Bay Street our Town Center. As mentioned in many magazines, Nassau has some of the best beaches in the world. Come and feel the warm sun, sand and sea!
This villa is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. It is a great relaxing get-away. You are a distance from town and the taxi's are very expensive. I recommend renting a car if you want to be where the action is, however, my family really enjoyed just hanging out at the villa. We watched sting rays, porpoise, squids and several other types of fish from the deck. Your own private aquarium!
Response from the owner Thanks for the great Review. We are happy to hear that everyone had a wonderful time. We agree that from our deck you can watch sting rays, porpoise and many other types of fish swim by. It is fantastic to see and it’s like having your own private sea aquarium. Very relaxing to swim and snorkel from our patio deck as the sea is crystal clear and beautiful. We look forward to your visit again next year. Thanks again.
We had an amazing time staying in this home. It had everything we needed and more. I traveled with my husband and two yound children (ages 8 and 4). The pool was a wonderful bonus for the kids. It had a great shallow end for my youngest and the 6ft deep end was great for the rest of us. It's in a quiet residential area, directly on the water. Bring your fishing gear! It's a prime spot to fish off the patio. The amenities are as described including pool toys, DVD movies, highchair, pack and play, etc. It was a huge bonus to have a large kitchen and an outdoor grill by the pool because eating around the island is extremely expensive, so this saved us a fortune in the end. Cathy was wonderful to deal with through the whole process. The patio was a favorite spot for us to relax throughout the day. The home is very private so all you see is water. This home is about 10 mins from the bridge to Paradise Island where you'll find the beautiful Cabbage Beach and atlantis Resort. I highly suggest renting a car to get around the island, especially if you have children. The house has it's own parking space in a gated front yard, which was great because many homes have no buffer from the street. The house is also very close to a couple of grocery stores and fast food places if you want a quick bite. The home is very well kept, clean and updated. The beds were very comfortable for us and the a/c worked great. We kept the a/c off during the day because we were at the beaches but in the evenings we turned it on to sleep. This place was a wonderful find and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place in Nassau! Thank you Cathy!
“Great Vacation Home in Bahamas”
My family of 5 (myself, husband, 3 sons (ages 16,14,14) vacationed at this great villa. It was so nice to not be crammed in a hotel, and this view and locale is very nice and relaxing. We had WiFi access which is nice for working parents and teenagers (even though that's not why you go to the Bahamas!). The pool was also a nicety, so the days we weren't running around accommodated all of us. We were also able to prepare some meals (even bbq) and drinks (for the adults!) to save some on eating out. Cathy helped us navigate agendas, parking, and overall trip! This was a perfect setup for us! Thanks Cathy!
“Great Family Relaxation!”
Staying at the Oceanfront Villa was truly a blessing for our family of 8. The property was very clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the beautiful sunrises from the outdoor patio overlooking the ocean. We spent a lot of time on the patio in the lounge chairs just enjoying the sun, reading, and talking. What a spectacular view and very private! We really enjoyed snorkeling right outside the house too. There are steps going down into the ocean right on the other side of the retainer wall. We brought our own snorkeling equipment (which I highly recommend if snorkeling at the property...I did not see any place close by where you could rent any). I was also glad we brought our water shoes, as the rocks to get to the water are a bit harsh on the feet! There is a small coral reef within swimming distance from the house where we saw 2 baby sting rays, starfish, and even a lion fish! A larger sting ray visited us in the evening to feed right outside the house...my daughters affectionately named him "Sheldon." Cathy was great to work with. She contacted us a few times to make sure we had every thing we needed and was awesome to respond to e-mails before the trip. We all appreciated the wireless internet connection. You definitely need a car when staying at this location. And although pretty expensive, I don't think there is any way to get around this. There is a grocery store nearby, but be ready to pay! A gallon of milk is $6. Two activities we loved were 1) Powerboat adventures (an all day trip where you get to feed the iguanas, sting rays, and sharks. Very cool) and 2) another boating adventure with bahamaboattours.com. Captain Carl was awesome and took us out for 4 hours on his boat to snorkel, fish, and visit a beach. He was a great tour guide and we loved the personal attention he gave to just our family. (As a side note, bring lots of sunscreen. Our family does not burn easily but we really needed 30-50 spf all of the time!)
“Third visit-- enough said!”
This is our 3rd time renting this villa; and another wonderfully amazing vacation was had by all. As you read the reviews, I can only agree with everything everyone else has said; it's a beautiful, clean home with everything you could ever need for a great family vacation. We are very "at home" here, and truthfully, I am feeling a little selfish about it--don't want too many people to learn about our little piece of paradise! :o) Cathy is always, always available for any need, big or small. The house is spotless, the location perfect for all of your outings, or just to stay at the pool. We have tried to find another home on the island to rent for something "different", but keep coming back to our favorite. Thank you again, Cathy--we shall return!
We stayed at this condo last month and we had a great time. The condo is very well maintained and located in a very quiet area. The back patio is awesome and the view of the ocean while you drink your coffee in the morning is beautiful. If you are traveling to the bahamas I would highly recommend staying at this condo.
“A wonderful place to stay right on the water!”
I booked this house for myself & 5 scuba diving friends. Everyone loved the place! It is right on the water with beautiful views and great snorkeling. There is a nice private pool as well & it's in a quite safe location. I do recommend having a rental vehicle to get around Nassau in. Cathy is very helpful & made sure that we had eveything we needed. We used the grill to cook some wonderful lobsters that we purchased at the locale market! When I return to Nassau in the future I will definately stay here again!
