I am originally from Jamaica. I love reggae and am very easy-going. I enjoy meeting new people. I read a lot, exercise regularly and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle of the islands.

Marjorie is a fantastic host and just an all around super lady, she has a beautiful home and was amazingly helpful and generous with her time and helpful tips, I had a great stay, felt at home and had lots of privacy, really felt blessed to find this super sweet retreat!
Effi, you were marvelous yourself. It was a pleasure to meet you.
The wonderful experience at Marjorie's house has changed the way I travel; I used to make a reservation at a hotel. This is the first time I've booked an accommodation at a local home and the stay at Marjorie's place encourages me to use this service in my future travel. It is the way she prepares for my visit that makes me feel like home at a place that I have never been to. When I arrived, Marjorie wasnt at home; she left a local cell phone for me so I could use during my visit in Bahamas. Later on, she called me to make sure that I arrived safe; she also told me I could take some food on the fridge if I was hungry. Once time she called me to check if I traveled safe as I came home pretty late. She also offered a ride to downtown although she had work, and took me to the airport on the last day. During the ride, she showed me some parts of Nassau that you might not know if you are not a resident. Also, she left specific guidelines about transportation, local places that she organized herself so I had some hints about Nassau. Moreover, the house is always clean and neat with access to kitchen, living room, garden, and accommodations such as clean bed-sheets, towels, etc. You can take a bus to downtown in 10 minutes; the surrounding area is very local and peaceful with the beach nearby (7 minutes walking). Most significantly, it is the conversation with Majorie that makes the trip unique from any other ones. She has great stories about her family, Nassau residents, the lifestyles and its culture. I believe it is harder to have such interpersonal communication if you choose to stay at the hotel. Staying with her helps me understand more about the place realistically and gives my travel more meaning. All of her gestures as well as the communication with her show how caring, thoughtful, genuine, and down-to-earth she is. I would strongly recommend staying at Marjorie's place; you will not only experience Nassau in a 'local' way, but also have an opportunity to meet such a wonderful person as Marjorie. To see the beauty of the place is a joy, and to see the beauty of her soul is a thing that I'll never forget:)
Staying with Marjorie is like staying with your favorite aunt. Just like any family visits, be respectful and clean up after yourself and you will have a wonderful place to stay.
It is a bit out of walking distance from groceries but public buses are easily accessible as well as buses for tourist activities like snorkeling and scuba diving. Unlike the touristy areas, you get to see real life in the Bahama's much more realistically.
Marjorie is a lovely woman!! She's hospitable and kind and tries to make your stay with her as comfortable and enjoyable as it possibly can be. She's an extremely considerate human being (for example: I had asked if it was possible to pick me up from the airport and she had said yes then my flight kept getting delayed and pushed back and canceled and she tracked my flight and came and got me regardless! Most people don't want to deal with that kind of mess and she was more than willing only because it would be more convenient for me!) what was really great about the atmosphere of her place was that she wants you to feel at home there. She always made sure I had a towel, gave me directions to where ever I wanted, was extremely helpful about telling you about cool places to go, gave you a local cell phone so that you didn't run up your cell phone internationally, and was just a great person to talk to about everything! And I can't say enough good things about the lamb she cooked! I thoroughly enjoyed staying with her and forever will remember the Bahamas in an extremely positive light because of how wonderful my stay with her was! Oh and the beaches there are gorgeous too!
Thank you, Sarah, for this wonderfully positive review. It was a great pleasure sharing time and thoughts with you!
Marjorie was the ultimate host. She is kind, generous, helpful, sweet and reserved. I would recommend staying with Marjorie, hands down. Her house is spacious, clean and inviting. It is well situated and there is easy access to public transportation to both the east and west sides. Just a 10- max 15 minute walk to the beach (dependent on how quickly you walk). If you are used to driving on the left hand side of the road, renting a car or scooter is great. If not, catching the bus is also a very quick way of getting around.
I hope our paths cross again, Marjorie. :o)
She was the best, her hospitality goes fare away than any 5 star hotel in the island.We had such a great time, the house was always clean, very close to the sea and our host has very helpfull.
The first day she took us to the food store, she gave us a local cell phone to call if we had a problem anywhere on the island.
This was my first experience with Airbnb, and i loved it.
I recommend to rent her room anytime, dont go to the expemsive hotels, go to Marjorie, you'll have the best time ever in the Bahamas.
Thanks Marjorie for your kindness, hospitality and your goat curry ;)
We will be back in no time :)
We had a great stay at Marjorie ´s place. The room and the house were great and very clean. Marjorie was so nice and helpful! It is the perfect place to stay in Nassau because it is away from the city and all the resorts and it is really close to the bus station to move around the island and go to Nassau in 20minutes. Really perfect!
She was great. She even picked me up from the airport and offered to take me back. The room and bathroom were spotless and she had a curtain set up so I could go from the bathroom to the bedroom unseen. No noise, I slept until 8am and she didn't start moving around until I was in the shower, she kept it quiet for me. It is very close to the beach, and buses ride back and forth from the main road constantly. I would recommend it.
Affordable Bahamas Retreat was such a pleasant place to stay. Marjorie was AMAZING!!! The property is was very clean so that was a plus. I truly felt at home during my stay and honestly did not want to leave. I highly recommend Affordable Bahamas retreat!!!
Marjorie and her family great guest. She was polite and pleasant. Communicated well and enjoyed the amenities at The Palms. I will host Marjorie and her guest in a heart beat.
