About This Listing
This delightful Villa by Tangerine Sunsets feels like an island within an island. Located in Nassau's prestigious and tourist friendly Cable Beach district, you get the best of both worlds: A Villa near the beach on a private acre with access to the ocean front, while right in the heart of Cable Beach tourist district with proximity to everything!
The Coral Bay North Villa sits a mere 200 ft (60 m) away from our waterfront apartments. You can even glimpse the ocean from the unit. In less than a minute you can walk outside to the waterfront to view the ocean, sit at the cabana and enjoy the beach.
The water is literally a 30 seconds walk from your door step. Our Coral Bay property which houses 4 other units feels like a private, nature island, with birds chirping and a healthy flora of local plant life and palm trees. The nature lover will love this private cul-de-sac in Nassau's safest neighborhood.
The unit itself feels like a condo on the beach. There is a view of the ocean from the northern windows inside this spacious apartment. Air Conditions and ceiling fans are in each room and a comfortable kitchenette with a view of the water ready to prepare your paradise breakfasts. The unit also comes with a comfortable sofa bed enough for 2 guests. Just so you know, the bathroom is in the main bedroom.
Outside there is a enclosed porch, perfect for an afternoon drink with friends, feeling the island breeze while listening to exotic birds sing from time to time. Take a walk to the ocean front and sit on the deck and breathe in the beauty of The Bahama Islands, there is really nothing like it!
This villa is close to EVERYTHING. In less than a 5 minute walk you will reach the famed Sandals Resort, Shopping Centers, Restaurants, Cafe's, Bus Stops, Taxis, Large Grocery Stores and just up the street, the Bah Mar hotel and Casino is available for those looking for a bit of a night life. Italian cafe's, gift shops, dominos, starbucks, etc.. everything is in walking distance. You could not find a more perfect or convenient location as a tourist on the island.
Think quiet, nature, away from it all, on the ocean, yet right in the heart of the tourist district. However if you're thinking elevators, room service and high price tags, you may want to look elsewhere, this cabin is for the those that find beauty in simplicity. We look forward to having you as our guests.
Quiet and respectful guests that will treat our unit like they do their own home are very welcome here. No smoking or pets allowed. We have a strict cancellation policy.
Duran was very quick to respond to my request to secure his rental, but when he made his response, he suggested a different check-in time of 9pm as an alternative to his normal afternoon check in time (also requesting my confirmation/acceptance of this change). As this change was not acceptable for my travel plans, I did not accept to secure his rental.
The next day, however, I noticed AirBnB had placed a hold on my card on behalf of Duran for his rental, and when I contacted Duran about it, he suggested that I should be made to 'compromise' by paying for at least one night's rental fee as well as the cleaning fee associated. When I declined, Duran let me know that he would then exercise 'his right' to charge me the ENTIRE cost of the original reservation request as a result of my "unwillingness to compromise with him".
We exchanged several messages regarding this matter, and I am still unsure if he will try to cause a charge on my card.
Unfortunately, I believe the entire situation was a misunderstanding, but I believe he could have handled it differently. I do not plan to rent from Duran in the future.
Louie, I do believe this unfortunate situation started as a result of poor communication and was compounded by an inability to compromise. We responded immediately to your reservation but did not accept it right away as we wanted to give you every opportunity to communicate with us. We waited until we could no longer do so without compromising your check-in, so deployed personnel to get it ready in the short time frame we received the same-day request, and accepted your request so as no lot leave you stranded when you got in town. To learn that you had received our response 7 minutes after you made your reservation request, but did not respond, yet booked another place while still committed to ours via airbnb's system was unfortunate. We could have avoided deploying the resources for this rush booking and kept our calendar open to receive other guests. Had we not confirmed your reservation when we did, we would have never found out that you made alternate arrangements, and would have been penalized by airbnb by not accepting your booking. It was only a two night stay and our original position was to immediately give you the opportunity to get a refund on your second night. It was disheartening to see that despite making every effort to consider your best interest, our efforts would not be appreciated at any level and in fact, it would cost us in the long run to do so. If this transaction was about taking a client's money, we simply would have immediately accepted your booking, and our strict cancellation policy would have stood. But we did not do this, we gave you the opportunity up until an hour before check-in to avoid this. Then we gave you an opportunity to receive essentially a 50% refund. We couldn't reasonably be asked to do more, especially being under no obligation to do so and having expensed time, resources and having our calendar blocked as a result. I do believe this is a case of poor communication and inability to compromise, but don't think you are a bad guest and wish you every success in your future travels.
First off, great great location. The villa is a stone's throw away from some of the most scenic waterfront I saw during my whole time in Nassau (very private as well). The villa was everything as advertised and in a convenient location for practically everything as it was 3 minutes from the main road. Awesome value!
We had an incredible time. The house is perfect for a couple, you get ocean breezes and a quick walk to anything you need, including the ocean. Thank you to Duran and team for making us want to move in and never leave.
Duran and his team were very responsive and took care of all possible needs. The apartment was as described. The pick up and drop off were on time and the last minute grocery order was promptly taken care of. There are a lot of cafes and fast food choices within walking distance (Wok and Roll was very good). We did not try the bus but it stops right outside. It was a lovely weekend we are all refreshed now - thanks Duran!
Well, it is not a big house and not so easy to find, however Duran is very supportive. We switch the 3 beds house instead the one bed and one couch room, which is not expected as I booked it. The wifi is not bad, though the shower is so so equipped.
duran war very friendly, helpful. the agency called us at the first day to know if everything is ok. The apartment is basic but enough for holidays. The area ist very quiet and enjoying the private vue and terrasse to the sea.
