We would be happy to assist in having a rental car reserved for you and delivered to the house or you can organize a car in advance and pick up at the airport. Parking is provided at the house, free of charge.

To be honest words can't describe just how amazing this home and host are.
Even after reading all the past reviews we had high expectations, but were all still blown away at the house itself and the attention to detail from Scott and everyone else (from Byron the onsite property manager, to Charmaine our personal housekeeper and Wendy our liaison for anything transportation). They were available around the clock for everything and anything, even if it was a call a 4am when we couldn't find a cab for the airport Scott was on the phone right away and sorted it out for us within minutes. We were a group of 5 adults (2 couples and 1 single) and the house is HUGE (half of the main level hardly got used by us).
The sound system built in is top notch and the level of appliances and technology is better then I have seen in some homes here in Canada. Everything is TOP OF THE LINE.
The pool is epic and we ate breakfast on the patio everyday, it was also amazing to have personal onsite people who raked the leaves and cleaned the yard regularly, not to mention the people who check the quality of the pool water 2x a week.
Grocery stores, liquor stores, Dairy Queen are a 5 minute walk away (which was a problem as we ended up having DQ almost every night!!!).
You can buy fresh lobster, fish and conch at the beach which we did regularly and is also only 5mins away.
The main tourist centre of Nassau is a quick 10-12 minute drive down one road and allowed us to get our shopping and tourist attractions in.
Having said all that, when we walked into the house we loved it so much we never bothered to head to main tourist area more then once and completely ignored going to Paradise Island all together (why go to Paradise when you are already there?).
Just to give you a sense of just how incredible Scott is and how flawlessly he runs this place - we arrived late on a Sunday and Scott had the fridge stocked with snacks and food for breakfast to tie us over until we had a chance to go grocery hopping.
I would go back in a heart beat and have delayed writing this review as I am secretly scared that more people will know about this place and mess up my chances of booking when I come back next!!
In all my years of traveling I have never experienced the level of attention to detail as I have with Scott at Tanglewoods. It was beyond 5 star and better then almost any hotels I have been too (and I have stayed at places from the Ritz to the W hotel).
All I can say is that Scott and his Tanglewoods property is better then I could have dreamed of. This place and Scott himself is what made our vacation be extraordinary.
The entire experience with Tanglewood (and Scott and team) was a delight, from first booking all the way to when we left.
We booked for 10 days for 2 familys (4 adults, 2 kids aged 10 and 13 and one 17 months old baby)
Scott was very responsive and forthcoming with information and logistical details immediately after we booked, and even changed the layout of one of the rooms to accommodate two kids (vs an adult couple) and provided a crib and a high chair for our baby at no extra costs. Throughout our stay, he also stayed in touch to make sure we were comfortable, and responded quickly to minor issues like a coffee maker not working (replaced with nice big new one right away).
The house is beautiful, the gardens and pool really well maintained by "Shorty", a gentleman who lives in another house on the property. The house is a beautiful heritage colonial structure that was recently renovated (completely) and functions as a very modern luxury villa. Scott is also a bit of a technology fiend, and has decked out the house with really cool creature comforts such as a Sonos sound system (I want one now), giant HD TVs in all the rooms and in the den, Nest thermostats, and a PS3.
The location is great too, walking distance from the beach, and a quick bus ride to historic downtown Nassau (for $1.25, you can't beat it). There is also a shopping centre 5 minutes walk from the house with a very nice grocery store, liquor store, Starbucks and even a DQ and a Domino's pizza. There are no sidewalks (yet) to get to the shopping centre, but there are enough breaks in traffic to get there safely.
We went to Atlantis for a day, and it was great (expensive but worth it if kids are part of the equation), and walked around Paradise Island another day. We also went downtown a few times to explore the markets, the fish fry, and the very nice John Watling Rum distillery. We bought a really nice 8 year old to take home...yum.
Conch Fritters, Conch Salads and Kalik or Sands beers are a must for visitors - we went to "Conch and Kalik" downtown, and it was a fun outing. Loud music, cold beers, great food and excellent service.
Taxi drivers are very friendly, and it's good to negotiate a price before heading out. Bus drivers are very accommodating and very friendly also.
The airport is a brand new terminal, and coming in and leaving was a very smooth experience.
We miss Scott, Charmaine, Shorty, Byorn and Ms. Pearce, and we miss the warmth of the Bahamas, and the Bahamian people already.
For my whole life when I traveled to the Bahamas I would stay in the resort hotels. However this time I decided to try something new and boy did it work out for the best. Scott is an A+ host and his house is BEAUTIFUL. Perfect location, clean as a whistle, and even more comfortable than the Atlantis. Thank you so much Scott for opening your home to me and my friends. I will be back next year for sure!
We were a group of 4 on a girls getaway from our hectic schedules. All of us have travelled extensively throughout the US and abroad. We've have had our share of experiences (good & bad) with accommodations. Staying at Tanglewood, London Terrace was the best decision we could have ever made! The place is just simply perfect! It is as beautiful as pictured. When you're on the property you feel like you are in a tropical secluded haven. Eating meals on the back porch was one my favorite things to do. The technicolor (that's what we called it) lit pool beckons you outside at night. The beach is less than a 10 minute stroll and so is the supermarket and drug store. The locals we met were so sweet! After our 5 day stay, we did not want to leave. I personally developed an emotional attachment to the Island and Tanglewood. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return to the Bahamas (and we will!). In the meantime, I'll keep logging on periodically to see pictures of "my home away from home". Scott, Byron & Shorty are the best hosts anyone could ever ask for.
This is hands-down the best vacation rental in the Bahamas. It's spacious, clean, well-maintained, safe, and most of all beautiful. Pictures truly can't convey the beauty of this place.
And, as everyone else has mentioned, Scott was the perfect host. I went down with a group of friends from New York, and Scott made us feel right at home.
Everyone should really find their way to Nassau and experience this one for themselves. Thank you, Scott!
Mark, thanks for the kind words. I wish I had ten more houses like Tanglewood because I think this is the best way to visit the Bahamas. Thank you for selecting Tanglewood and please pass the word on to anyone you know that can appreciate what I am offering. Please stay in touch. Peace !!
First off all I just wanted to thank Scott, who was our host. He exudes decency and generosity and although I only met him twice for a few minutes, I appreciated it. Tanglewood is EXACTLY the place I was looking for - my wife and three daughters (2 adult daughters) wanted to spend some quiet time and the house met all our goals. It is expansive; with a pool and a fantastic kitchen. I availed myself of his kitchen and made fish, chicken, and many dishes during our stay. My wife and daughters either read or just lounged about the pool or the house. The fish market is also close by - which we enjoyed. Thank you Scott.
Give my regards to your wife and daughters, Again let me say that it was an honor and a pleasure to have you stay at Tanglewood. You are the best and I hope you come back again soon. I am now planning on adding another suite to the house so you have something to come back to see. Oh and since you left, we have started a wonderful collection of exotic orchids around the property, I will have to send you photos soon. I will also be inviting you to share your photos of your vacation if you desire on our page. Lets stay in touch.
THE BEST HOST: Scott could not have been a better host. He went above and beyond for our recent stay at Tanglewood. We were a group of two couples and two toddlers and Scott went to lengths to make our stay extraordinary; he purchased a pack and play, a high chair and even pool toys for the kids. He had Kalik beers waiting for the adults. AND HE DROVE US TO THE AIRPORT. Scott is incredibly generous and friendly and his open-air, beautiful house is a reflection of his personality. The stay was perfect, the house is even better in person and it's just so roomy and tranquil. THANK YOU SCOTT!
Love, Mary Kate + Your NYC Friends
Five of us rented this gorgeous house - two couples and a fifth wheel (sorry, Nick) in early December. We'd all been to Nassau before, but had previously stayed in various hotels around the island. It was a bit of an experiment and none of us knew exactly what to expect.
By the end of the first day we all swore we would never stay anywhere else in New Providence!!! In fact, each of us had a list of people and occasions for which this would be our premiere destination.
Big, clean, and elegantly decorated the house manages to create the feeling of luxury and also homey comfort. From making meals together in the big, well-equipped kitchen; to lounging by the pool; to playing games in the living-room - it was a perfect home base.
In short, I loved it. I'd gush more, but I'm afraid if I do it will be booked when I want to go back!!!
I must say I had a great time with you guys at the Bahamas International Film Festival, and your film was great. While I watched it and while you and your crew were onstage answering questions after, I was so proud to be your host. Give my regards to everyone and know that the doors of Tanglewood will always be open to you. Peace!
Hi ! WHERE DO I START????????????? WE HAD AN AMAZING HOST, SCOTT WAS AWESOME, HIS HOME/R RETREAT FOR 10 DAYS WAS JUST PICTURE PERFECT.WE HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED AND MORE.WE CELEBRATED 2 BIRTHDAY'S , WHEN WE ARRIVED AT THE HOUSE SCOTT HAD FRESH FLOWERS FOR US, WINE WAS CHILLED AND READY. LET THE PARTY BEGIN. WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME. AND YES WE WOULD RECOMMEND STAYING AT TANGELWOOD ' LONDON TERRACE AND WE WILL BE RETURNING. THANK YOU SCOTT AND HIS STAFF FOR MAKING OUR STAY AND BIRTHDAY'S A TIME WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
A gem !! we arrived to an opened gate and were greeted by a warm smile from our host, Mr Scotty. Right away our luggage were attended to and we were taken into our home away from home. We walked into the foyer and quickly realized that we had made the right decision… a beautiful staircase brought you to the bedrooms and to your left is the living room complete with Bahamian art work and very comfy couches. We made our way to the back to find a gorgeous kitchen ready for entertainment and then walked to the formal dining room where we knew it would be our little get away. It was time to go check outside. No disappointment there, our breath was taken away by the beautiful pool and sitting area. We used the outside daily and the yard was well manicured. This rental residence is perfect; everything you need is available in this house, beautiful clean pool, bathrooms in all bedrooms, the beds are extremely comfortable and the space is awesome with top notch security. I could go on how awesome this place is but at the end of the day the real question is…. Would we recommend it? Would we rent it again? The answer is an absolute YES. Thank you Scotty for making our holiday a memorable one!
