About this listing
Our brand new, secure and cozy 1 bedroom apartment with a private patio is only 200' from one of the most beautiful beaches in Nassau. It has a queen size bed in the aircon. bedroom and a futon in the main room. Modern kitchen w/ washer/dryer.
Our place is unique in that it is located on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island but it is far away from the major resorts and the crowds that come with it. It is not unusual on some days to have the beach entirely to yourself. The apartment is on the ground floor of a 3 story building. There is a view of the ocean from the private patio.
Guest will have access to all the usual amenities of a fully equipped apartment, as well as a private patio off the front entrance to the apartment, a laundry area with washer and dryer and a private path to the beach. Parking is available and the driveway is gated for extra security.
Interaction with Guests
The host lives on the property 24/7 and is available at the request of the guest to assist with whatever you need to make your stay more enjoyable. Everything you need to know about the island and the best places to visit while on your vacation can be provided to you by your host.
The neighborhood is upscale with many private homes, some apartments and condos. The airport is only 10 minutes away as well as groceries and some of the best restaurants on the island. There is also a fresh seafood market located in the small village nearby.
There is a public bus service that runs hourly from the main road all the way into town and thruout the main areas of the island. Taxi and car rental are readily available.
Other Things to Note
You can fall asleep in your bedroom to the sound of the waves gently breaking on the beach. Go snorkeling on reefs near shore with beautiful tropical fish or just chill in the sun with a cold beverage. Other apartments claim to be "near the beach" our place is "on the beach". Walk out your front door down a path 200' to the beach.
We ask our guest to leave the apartment in the same condition they found it. Conserve energy by turning off all lights and AC when not in the apt. Clean up after yourself and respect the privacy of others living in the building. No loud music or partying late in the evening. No Smoking please.
Brenda was an amazing host. She thought of all the little details like showing us around the place, recommending a trusted taxi, and stopping at the store on our way in so we could stock up. She even surprised us midweek with a delicious mango to snack on.
We enjoyed the hardly populated beach, low key spot, away from all the tourism. However, if you want to go see the sights, everything is just a 20 minute entertaining bus ride away.
Thank you so much Brenda! You and your lovely apartment are highly recommended.
Brenda was so friendly and welcoming! She picked us up from the airport and brought us to the grocery store to pick up some food and the liquor store for some beverages.
Her home is located a few steps from the beach in a gated community. Far enough away from downtown that we felt like we had the island to ourselves....and many days we actually did have the beach to ourselves. The water was beautiful! Perfect for snorkeling- and there were plenty of places to do that. Less than 500 yards from her beach area is Nirvana Beach- a great place with live music, drinks and food- and friendly people.
The apartment was clean, safe and secure. We had everything we needed and more. She supplied us with a gallon of H2O, muffins and juice for the first morning breakfast, brochures and booklets regarding places to see on the island, and even a little info sheet about what buses to take. (Use the buses....they are easy to get around with and inexpensive) She even had beach towels for us! The whole experience was perfect!
I am actually looking at my next vacation with staying here again in mind! Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.
Brenda's place in the Bahamas was amazing. The beach was beautiful and had good snorkelling (Eagle Ray in 5 feet of water). The apartment was very nice and clean. She and her family went out of their way to help us. Brenda picked us up at the airport, dropped us off, did early morning drops at a pickup location for diving, and helped to make calls for us too. Great host. Highly recommend.
The last review left by Helene sums it up nicely. Brenda is an angel. She is extremely warm and welcoming. The home we stayed in is on the best beach on the island. Brenda was more than accommodating. She had her daughter help us last minute by driving us into town to pick something up for a dive trip, she picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, and even took us to the grocery and liquor stores. I can't believe her hospitality. So amazing. And the one bedroom apartment where we stayed is was fully stocked, and I'd say the pictures don't do it justice. Super clean and perfect for our needs. I could go on forever about how great the experience was, but I think the other 50 plus reviews do a better job; Helene's being the most accurate and detailed. Will not hesitate to stay with Brenda again on our next trip to Nassau, assuming she'll take us. :)
Brenda had been the nicest and most toughtful host, even person, I ever met. She was very attentive to our needs and our well being and helped us a lot. She picked us at the airport and took us back on the departure day, she bought us breakfast since we were arriving very late in the night, she took us to the store so we can buy food, she lend us mask and tubas so we can snorkel, she even took us on an island tour so we can discover the parts of the island that we wouldn't have known without her and gave us so many interesting facts about them. She always had been present for us and gave us a lot of very interesting tips and advices. In short, she is the perfect host you can dream of and it had been a real pleasure to meet her and being at her place.
The apartment is perfect and exactly like it is described. It has everything you need for and is very well decorated. To be honest, I particurlaly loved the bathroom. Despite how warm it was outside, thanks to the air conditioning, it always was cool and nice inside. You have your very own patio to relax on morning and evening. It had been really pleasant. You even see the sea from there. It is perfectly well situated since the beach is at the end of the garden so you are on it in 60 seconds. I have never been so close to the beach before and it was so nice. And I've never been to such a beautiful beach. White sand you can relax upon on your beach towel or on Brenda's deckchairs, turquoise water as warm as outside (even warmer sometimes!), coulourful fishes and rocks you can snorkel. It was as if it was our own private beach some days. There's not a lot of people, sometimes we were even the only ones here, and as we have been told : you experience the real Bahamas. It was really quiet and nice. The view is stunning. Nature is all around you. Seaturtles layed there when we were there ! In a word, it was heavenly.
It is also close to downtown Nassau and Paradise Island. We went there by bus (jitney) and ferry boat a few times. It had been really great and a must-see. I'm still not over the Queens staircase. It is so impressive. We had a lot of fun. There's so much to do. I hope we can come back one day and without a second thought, we'll come back to Brenda's place. I also will recommend it highly to everyone wanting to go to Bahamas. 500 words are not enough to describe how perfect everything was.
Brenda was a fantastic host! She took us to/from the airport and was always available to help us when needed. Her apartment is very modern and only a few steps away from the beach. The beach was gorgeous and at times we had it all to ourselves. This apartment is perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing time in the Bahamas!
What an amazing experience! Prior to arriving and up until the moment we touched down, Brenda was there every step of the way. She responded to my inquiries in a timely manner and like everyone else, even picked me and my boyfriend up from the airport and stopped at the grocery before heading to the apartment. The accommodations were just was they were described - a quaint, updated apartment (perfect for two people) located literally steps from the most beautiful, less populated beaches on the island. Brenda's willingness to take us places (as her schedule permitted) is something we were extremely grateful for. She also provided instructions on where to catch the bus (extremely easy and highly recommended) to get downtown and back. For my first Air BNB experience, this was TOP NOTCH. Thank you Brenda for making our experience to the Bahamas a memorable one!
