My wife and I had a great stay in Nassau. Apartment was clean, comfortable, safe and in a great location. We only met Jonathan and Kareem very briefly but both were very friendly and welcoming.
It was an amazing 4-night stay with Jonathan and Kareem, I picked up my key from the security who was always helpful and bought some toiletries from a supermarket down the street since it was Sunday and most downtown shops were closed. Nassau is unbelievable when it comes to tourism, they welcome you properly and everyone is amazingly nice- just remember to say "Good morning/afternoon, please and thank you as well as no, thank you". I went diving for one of the days and the company picked me up right from a nearby hotel. There's a beach right across the main road (bay st) and 3 minutes away and you're at downtown nassau. Great restaurants and shopping especially for someone like me who doesn't have these shops in her island. I traveled alone so it was incredibly nice to have Jonathan and Kareem next door, they made it feel really safe and they're also super nice. Great hosts and I will definitely come back again hopefully with them to watch one of Kareem's new movies!
Kareem and Jonathan have been great hosts! They were super friendly and helped us wherever they could. They were busy most of the time and we didn't spend that much time in the apartment, so we didn't see them that often. But whenever we saw them, they were really nice. The apartment was nice and clean and had a pool. The only thing that bothered us a little bit was the temperature in our room, it was always super hot. The location was great, super close to Junkanoo beach and really close to all the bars. We would definitely go there again!
It was a pleasure communicating with Jonathan before my travel. I also had the pleasure of actually meeting Kareem once I arrived. The apartment is located in the heart of everything from the beach to the Fish Fry and local jitneys. The room was a comfortable size and I was thankful for the AC unit inside. The power went out a couple of times during the night but other than that, I would recommend booking with Jonathan/Kareem. Amazing guys!!!
Var alene en del af tiden, dejligt. Lejligheden en typisk 50+ gammel bolig der trænger til en spand maling og et nyt tidssvarende køkken, men er funktionel, hyggelig og meget personlig. Rigtig god seng og rart stort værelse. OK poolområde og venlige naboer og security. OK kvarter tæt på stranden og tæt på alting (kan høre højttaleraanouncements fra de store cruisere i baggrunden). En fin-fin oplevelse, selv i øsende regnvejr.
Jonathan and Kareem were very nice and helpful hosts.
The apartment was nice as it was in the very central of Nassau and we had all we needed for our week in the Bahamas.
We really recommend staying with Jonathan and Kareem:-)
We met both Kareem (he greeted us when we arrived) and Jonathan during our stay. They were both friendly and were helpful if we had questions. The room was clean and had AC (although pretty loud when turned on). The bathroom was small but worked for us. The kitchen could be messy at times but has all the equipment you need... Me and my friend used the balcony for hanging out early in the morning when eating breakfast. Really nice!
Great location, close to downtown and to buses taking you all over the island :)
