Stuart has been a great host, so welcoming, helpful and kind, you couldn't ask for better.
The apartment is exactly as pictured. We spent most of our days around the apartment and going down to the beach (2mins walk) for a swim on our lunch breaks and in the evening (both working remotely during the day on this trip). The kitchen had everything we needed and the screened outdoor area was perfect for relaxing.
It was a nice quiet neighborhood that we felt safe walking around. We caught the local bus to down town and the grocery store then out to cable beach and Sandyport from a few minutes walk from Stuarts place for $1,25 each way. Walked into town a few times and down to the 'fish fry' all very accessible with footpaths all the way.
Airport pick up and drop off to our next accommodation made everything so much easier, no hassle of taxi's. Stuart was a great help with finding us another place to stay when at late notice we wanted to stay on for a few more days and he was already booked up.
Great stay in Bahamas...we will be back Stuart! Thankyou.
Stuart was an excellent host and his apartment is fantastic! He picked my sister and I up from the airport and drove us to the apartment, stopping on the way at a supermarket so we could pick up food which was really helpful. Also, during the drive he pointed out certain parts of the Island and told us more about Nassau which was nice. The apartment is just as lovely in reality as it looks in the photos, we especially enjoyed sitting out in the large porch area in the evenings. The entrance into the apartment is seperate from the main house and we had our own key which was nice as it meant we could come and go as we pleased without feeling like we'd be disturbing anyone. The location is perfect, literally just across the road from the apartment is Saunders beach which has the beautiful turquoise water and white sands you picture when you think of Caribbean beaches. Junkanoo beach and the fish-fry was only a 10-15 minute walk away, and downtown Nassau an extra 5 minutes. We enjoyed the walk into town and didn't actually use any of the local busses but they seemed pretty regular and there was a stop at the end of the little road from the apartment. Stuart was always available whenever we wanted to ask him any questions etc but otherwise left us to do our own thing, we went snorkelling one of the days on his recommendation which was fantastic! We had an amazing time in Nassau and would definitely recommend Stuart's apartment to anyone!
We loved staying at Stuart's place! He made us feel really welcome and was always available if we had questions or needed help. The place was clean and he even provided beach towels. He was generous enough to pick us up from the airport and take us food shopping as soon as we arrived. Stuart's place is really close to one of the best beaches in Nassau, which is a local beach that's quiet and clean. We couldn't have asked for a better experience in Nassau!
We had the most amazing time at Stuart’s Tropical Garden’s apartment. As soon as we arrived, we felt at home. We had been travelling in Central America and Florida for a while, and we needed somewhere to relax in the Bahamas as well as have some fun, and we picked exactly the right place. Stuart met us at the airport and drove us back to the house and on the way he gave us lots of helpful information about the area and stopped at the supermarket so we could stock up the fridge and buy whatever provisions we might need. We didn’t need to buy drinking water though, as Stuart provided this at the apartment. The house is exactly as described and the photos show the house as it is – a beautiful and shaded colonial style house in a great area. We were Stuart’s longest staying guests – we stayed for just over three weeks. During that time we visited Atlantis – the water park is great fun and we even went to see the Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett concert there, which was fabulous. There is also lots to do in Nassau and in the general area close to the apartment. We went to the Mall and the cinema. We also spent a few days in Sandals and Melia resorts on Cable beach – getting a day pass to enjoy the pools and all-inclusive facilities. Everywhere from the apartment is accessible by bus – a #10 or #12 – so no need to have a car, which we appreciated. The white sand beach (Saunders Beach) is just a minutes walk away. Stuart was the perfect host and the apartment was perfect for us. We would highly recommend this apartment. The porch is a lovely place to sit and have a meal – the kitchen is fully equipped if you want to prepare food yourself. The bedroom is comfortable and has air-con. The bathroom and shower is great. All very clean and comfortable. It was our first Aibnb experience and Stuart has set the bar very high for our future Airbnb experiences. I hope he enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed meeting him. Thanks Stuart!
Stuart was the best host ever! He gave us a ride to/from the airport. His house was everything we wanted and more. Just steps away from the beach and if you don't mind walking not too far from downtown. Very close to the main road too if you want to catch a bus rather than walk. Thanks stuart!
We had a marvelous trip thanks to Stuart and his hospitality. He took us from the airport and was very helpful.
He told us a lot of very interesting facts about the island and he gave us the best addresses.
The apartment is close to the beach and the kitchen was fully equipped.
One of my best airbnb experience so far!
Our stay at Stuart's Appartement was more than perfect! He picked us up from the Airport and went grocerie Shopping with us.
His little tropical home was a real experience! He was always there when we needed him!
Saunders beach is literally footsteps away and downtown is just a couple minutes bus Ride!
All in all: it was great! We would definetly come back! Thank you Stuart!
