Bettina welcomed us very nicely with a tour of her condominium. The Condo was in clean and in good shape. It provided everything we needed for 4 people. The Shower has great water pressure and feels amazing after days at the beach or out on the main island. The location is absolutely phenomenal. walking distance to every point on paradise Island, including the Atlantis, the Ferry Terminal and the One and Only Ocean Club.
Bettina was very supportive with small inquiries for the house or if we had questions about possible vacation activities etc.
I can only genuinely recommend this place. It truly is in Paradise and the perfect spot to stay! Thank you so much Bettina.
Bettina was really nice and met us at the condo when we arrived. Her normal taxi driver was on vacation so our taxi cost to get to the condo was a little higher then we expected. The place at first was really hot and stuffy and the AC didn't kick in until the next day. There was also a power outage for about 4 hours on our second day. Our first night was rough because the air was so dry. I would suggest sleeping with the fans off and AC on. The biggest issue was that we had a break in through the back door and one of our Iphones stollen. Luckily they left our laptops and money. If you stay here I would make sure you lock the back balcony door extremely tight and close the blinds. We even barricaded the door at one point because we were so worried. The pool is too dirty to use and beach access was pretty far (about a 15-20 min. walk) It is possible we just couldn't find a closer beach access. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom and living room was clean. We had enough towels. The kitchen is pretty stocked we needed to buy oil and some sauces but was able to make breakfast every morning. Clean Ice was also another issue for us. Also the store is not that close, probably a 15 minute walk with small inclines. Overall it was an enjoyable stay with a couple of unanticipated bumps. Also another thing to consider if you are doing excursions there is no land line so it is really hard to coordinate and communicate with the trip planers to be picked up on time. We had to download Skype and pay to use the call out service. Our excursion was postponed and there was no way for the company to reach us. Just something to keep in mind.
We stayed 4 people for three nights at Bettina's place. Bettina was very kind and helpful and the house was nice and perfect for 4. We had expected to be able to relax around the pool, but there wasn't any sunbeds. But we found a perfect spot at the beach which was in walking distance. When you are standing by the condo and are looking at the street try to take a right and use the first access to the beach. That wasn't as crowded as if you walk left.
I absolutely loved my vacation on Paradise Island. I went with my husband and 2 teenage boys. the condo was fine, it had a beautiful back porch with nice plants, lizards and a comfy table for eating and checking emails. The condo was fun and cozy and it was ideal location for walking to the best beach or the local bar Green Parrot- I would highly recommend staying at a condo and not getting trapped in the tourist resorts. We met many amazing Bahamian people and really enjoyed their hospitality and hearing about life on the island- everything was amazing and really a perfect vacation. thank you for all the island offered us- we felt so lucky to be there!
what a beautiful place.
My coworkers and I enjoyed staying at Bettina's condo! The condo was exactly as listed with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, full kitchen, living room, and private patio with personal amenities such as bath and beach towels, shampoo and soap, and a couple bottles of water to get us started upon arrival. Bettina was super accommodating by scheduling us a taxi to/from the airport, meeting us at the condo, and constantly answering all of my various questions about the Bahamas over the airbnb app (area, food, etc.). The condo itself is in a GREAT location on Paradise Island…5 minute walk to morning coffee/convenience store, 10 minute walk to the water taxi/ferry boat landing, 5-10 minute walk to Atlantis, and 5-10 minute walk to the public beach.
In addition, I left a work folder at Bettina’s condo. Bettina made sure that I was aware of this right away, as well as mailed it FedEx first thing the next morning for me. I cannot say enough good words about how great our experience was. I would recommend staying with Bettina and cannot wait to come back to visit!
Bettina was very helpful, flexible, and nice, and we had a great experience! Wifi was great which was a huge plus and the location was very convenient!
Bettina's place was great, and she was so easy be in touch with! 5 minute walk to a really beautiful beach. It was very comfortable place for 2 couples. We would absolutely recommend it.
The condo is on a great part of paradise island. It's super close to the beach, some great restaurants (cheap and not-so-cheap), and to the bridge to get across to downtown Nassau. The private deck area out back is beautiful and has a nice table. The bedrooms are a good size, with huge closets and nice window views. The master bed is CRAZY comfortable, especially after long days out and about. The pool is a bit chilly, but is clean and nicely refreshing. The kitchen was well-equipped (did a fair amount of cooking). Great sized place for 4 people.
The woman who greeted us was not Bettina, but she was very nice and told us a lot to know about the island. Felt very comfortable the whole time. There were about 10-12 apartments in the little complex, and it was pretty split between vacationers and local families. Everyone we encountered was very friendly, which is actually most of Nassau.
Would stay again, I highly recommend Bettina's place. Can't find a better deal on Paradise Island for sure.
Great host and really good communication! Nice house and fantastic location. We will repeat for sure! Thanks bettina for a wonderful week!:)
Bettina is a great host that makes your Bahamas vacation easy. She is nice enough to arrange a Taxi to pick you up from the airport and meets you at the condo to give you the lay of the land. She is also readily available by telephone or e-mail should you need. The condo is a very short walk from the Atlantis resort should you choose to spend your time there. It is also a short walk to the beach and to the ferry terminal.
The house is simple but well maintained and comfortable. The pool is nice but their are no chairs, so bring one if you want to lounge next to the pool. I would recommend the beaches though because they are stunning.
My only disappointment was learning that a pool pass at Atlantis is $135/day if you're not staying at the resort. So, if you want to use the pool their, I would recommend just staying there. Otherwise, save your money and explore some of the real island.
