This apartment was a mess. When we arrived, it was not clean at all. Towels, fridge, floor..."crappy"
Grocery Store was supposed to be close from the apartment, it was not. You have to walk 3 miles to buy some foods. Or you can eat junk food (plenty of fast food nearby)
Buses were supposed to passing by the apartment to go downtown. Not a all. You have to wait 1 hour to catch a bus. If you are in downtown there are buses to come back to village rd. Take only the 11 or 19.
This is a poor neighborhood, people are very nice. That's a plus.
Book at your own risk. We will not coming back here.
Bahamas is a wonderful country, btw
I had a wonderful stay at the villa. The owners are warm, courteous, and go above and beyond to ensure a comfortable stay.
Fast and Reliable high speed internet access for those who need to work and vacation simultaneously. Excellent support services. The staff checks on your well being very frequently. The coordinated a taxi service that was prompt with fair prices. Overall my stay was enjoyable.
points positifs: la piscine est bien entretenue et propre. Les propriétaires sont joignable et répondent très rapidement aux emails. un arret de bus est devant l'entrée du complexe qui mène rapidement au centre ville.
points negatif: le complexe est assez vieux et délabré par endroit. l'appartement etait sale à notre arrivé et les serviettes de toilette tachées. les matelas pas trop confortable. l'appartement est assez loin à pied du centre ville et des supermarché.
dans l'ensemble si vous n'etes pas trop regardant et ne voulez pas etr en plein centre l'appartement convient.
We had a great time at the Bahamas. The apartment is just as advertised. Some of the furniture are a bit dated, but overall it's clean and it provides everything you need.
The area itself is a more residential one. So, you might need a car or take a cab or the jitneys (public busses). There used to be a small grocery store down south at the Village Road Shopping mall, but it's gone. We walked towards Montague Bay along East Rd and found a brand new grocery store next to a Starbucks, it's a 20-25 minute foot walk.
Brigitte took care of us during our stay. She booked all tours for us and gave us a private tour along the island. Thanks again, Brigitte! :) And if you have the chance, visit the Blue Lagoon and do the Dolphin encouter. You won't regret it!
Duran's place is exactly as described; there were no surprises for us. Although no one met us in person, Duran had everything laid out step-by-step; how to find the apartment complex, how to access the complex (it's a gated complex), how to find the apartment within the complex, and finally how to enter the apartment. The apartments within the gated complex are poorly labeled, but you shouldn't have any problems if you follow Duran's instructions.
Duran called a few min after we had arrived to ensure everything was in order and provided additional information on where we can get groceries and excursions.
The apartment is well furnished and located less than 3 min walk from a convenience store where we were able to buy grocery. We also found a nice Jamaican restaurant about 10-15 min away (walking)!!
We only had one problem with Duran's place. It was a bit dusty. I am not sure if this is because the windows were open when we got there or if no one had been there for a while. However, this was not too much of an inconvenience for us. Just to be clear, the apartment was clean and well decorated. The kitchen and bathroom are the two most important rooms in a house for me and both were in excellent condition.
Overall, both my wife and I are happy we stayed at Duran's Place and we plan to stay there again when next we visit Nassau. We would recommend Duran to anyone looking for a place to stay in Nassau.
Word of caution; taxi service in Nassau can be a real hassle if you are not staying in the traditional tourist areas. So please consider the taxi driver recommended by Duran if you plan to stay at his place. Generally speaking, if you follow the instructions and suggestions you receive from Duran, you are guaranteed to have a wonderful time.
Thank you Duran, you are a wonderful host!
Thanks for the welcome gifts in villa. Vacation is good ,beach and fish market are nearly.Paradise island and Atlantis is 15 minutes by car .I will recommend your villa!
Duran was excellent in setting up this villa for my trip down to Nassau. The place was very clean, overall convenient and I would definitely stay here again or any other place duran has to offer.
