TangleWood is a beautiful house, and was perfect for our long weekend in the Bahamas. The pool, bbq and backyard area was very private, and such a great area to hang with family or friends. I would absolutely recommend staying at this house. Note: though on a map it seems close and walkable to some areas, plan to have a car or taxi to get around, as the roads around the house are not great for pedestrians, etc.
Off. The. Chain. One of the best Airbnb experiences I've ever had, and I've had some amazing ones. I was here with my hubby and three friends for a wedding and we couldn't have been more thrilled with Tanglewood. The house and property were beautiful, Charmaine, the housekeeper, was excellent and made a mean breakfast and we were close to everything we needed! We were greeted when we arrived by Charmaine who gave us a tour and had wine & beer waiting for us! What a treat! I would recommend renting a car or getting tight with a taxi company (we used Cheryl's Taxis and they were always available and excellent), but if you like to walk, most everything you'd want to do/need to get to is within a 5-30 min walk, though sometimes sidewalk-less. The outdoor area is awesome and HUGE! Great outdoor grill/bar area as well as an outdoor dining area and lounge area. The pool was great, but as others have mentioned, the "hot tub" looking part is just regular temp. We LOVED it and have all vowed to come back, next time with the bride & groom!
We just returned from a lovely 5 days at Tanglewood. Despite unpredictable terrible weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house! From the minute we booked our trip to the day we left, Scott took care of our every need. He found us a private chef to cook us an AMAZING meal at the house (Chef TJ - just book him, you won't regret it), he found us two massage therapists to come and give each of us a one-hour swedish massage at the house, he helped us order the Pacquio/Mayweather fight on Pay-Per View, and he attended to our every need. Char, the housekeeper, was also wonderful. She doesn't come on Sat or Sun though so if you expect you will need cleaning - ask ahead of time!
There is a grocery store within walking distance but note there is no sidewalk so careful! The bugs were awful bc of the rain - we are all so bit up. Otherwise, our stay was perfect. You will not find a better place for the price. No way. I would advise renting a car though bc taxis are not just ready to hail. We were able to get them, but we had to ask for cards and call ahead. Having a car would have been better. We had a blast! Thank you Scott, Char, and everyone who helped make that happen.
(PS: if you are checking out pics - note that the "hot tub" isn't really a hot tub. No jets or hot water. Just a tiny pool. Probably perfect if you have really little kids but we were bummed out. They also have a pack-n-play in the master bed and a high chair in the dining room)
We had a very nice time at Tanglewood. The house was well sized for our 8 adults and one infant. We enjoyed using the pool and Sonos system. Charmaine took very good care of us. Scott and his helper Wendy made all appropriate arrangements and described the property very accurately. Since we didn't rent a car, the main challenge was walking along Shirley St which is a very busy thoroughfare. The grocery was excellent and well worth the walk!
TangleWood is a wonderful vacation experience. The house is very well maintained and even had a brand new exterior addition, with gourmet outdoor kitchen, which was not in the description. We had 10 people staying at the house, from 1 year old to 74 years old and there was plenty of room for all of us. There is a great grocery store, Starbucks, etc... just a 5 minute walk from the house and the public beach is perfect, very few people and vendors selling snacks and lunch.
Scott and his staff treated us very well and took care of all of our needs. The place even came stocked with some food/drinks to get us started.
Compared to a hotel stay, this is much better and a better value. I would recommend this experience to anyone.
Tanglewood was such a great experience. The pictures do not do it justice. Scott was a great host, he has a team of employees to help make your trip great. When we arrived we were greeted by Wendy who introduced us to the Charmaine the housekeeper and "Shorty" the caretaker. The house had plenty of amenities, each room had its own bathroom and tv. The kitchen was superb and had all the essentials for making meals. "Shorty" even cut some coconuts down and we were able to drink the coconut water. Charmaine was great and was there to clean the house every weekday. She will even cook breakfast for you. There is a grocery store and liquor store that is a 10 minute walk, walking 10 minutes the other direction is Montague beach. There are limited sidewalks so be mindful of traffic. We did not rent a car but had a taxi service that we would call to get around. The pool is very nice, it was a little cold during November and the jacuzzi does not produce hot water, or we weren't able to turn it on. Scott even had a party starter pack for us when we arrived. Tanglewood really made this a trip to remember and we will definitely stay here if we go back to Nassau.
We felt very welcome at Tanglewood. Scott is a great host. The photos are very accurate and we loved the house and pool. Scott had the house stocked with a few grocery necessities that were a huge help upon arriving with kids. The nearby grocery store is fantastic (think smaller scale Whole Foods type) and you can find everything else you need in the same shopping complex. We had a great stay and would definitely visit again.
