Guestbook comments from the manager

We all relaxed, swam, jet skiied, kayaked, watched a terrific electrical storm, swam with dolphins, watched the Olympics, enjoyed Cabbage Beach and drank lots of Kalik. The only disappointment was the Exuma powerboat trip was canceled due to the weather, shouldn't have left it to the end I guess. The house was the perfect size for both our families and there was lots of cousin bonding!

Thank you again,

AMAZING HOUSE! Had the best time - recommend to all looking for beautiful escape in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 women who traveled for a fun vacation outing together and we all had a BLAST. The house was beyond our expectations. It is well maintained, beautiful pool and INCREDIBLE view. The bedrooms in the house all have an en suite bathroom which is really nice for privacy and an house full of women. Everything we could have wanted was there and then some. Short bus ride into town, it was super accessible for a day out in downtown, but frankly we hated leaving the house! The groundskeeper was also so helpful and nice that he helped buy us fresh local snapper and fileted it and marinated it for us, all we had to do was cook it, and it was DELICIOUS! Everyone that we dealt with in regards to the house from booking, to arrival, to staying and to departing was extremely nice and professional. Highly recommend to all and have already discussed returning with our significant others because it was heart breaking to leave such an amazing and beautiful property.

Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Shangri La! The main house is exactly as described - a beautiful home with all of the necessary amenities. The kitchen had everything with plenty of room and seating. We loved the comfortable outdoor seating - perfect overlooking a spectacular stretch of beach with calm, beautiful water. It's also an easy, close ride to downtown Nassau and Paradise Island. We explored Nassau and it is a great town! You will definitely love your stay here and we highly recommend it!

Shangri-La in December 2014

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at Shangri-La from 12/27/14 to 1/3/15. We stayed in the Main House only because that more than accommodated us, thus we didn't the need the additional guest house. The Main House had ample room. We used all four bedrooms and all 4 1/2 bathrooms. We didn't use the office and barely used the TV/Media Room. The rooms were generally fairly large and the house was generally in great condition. The local property management staff was very nice, accommodating, and eager to help. The house was well-equipped with pretty much everything we needed. In general, we very much enjoyed our stay and if we went back to Nassau, we would consider staying there again. The only thing we would prefer over Shangri-La would be a house in a more secluded spot and not on a main road. We had a few minor issues but almost all of them were addressed right away. Overall, we had a wonderful time!

amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Shangri-La to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. We had 9 people including a 18 mo and a 6 year old. The house is everything described and more. The pool, theater room, everything was great. We had a slight issue with the freezer, but the property managers were right on it and it was resolved immediately. We did relocate some smaller decorative household items to higher ground due to the baby, but the house overall was very kid friendly. right on the beach and the main drive in town made it easy to drive to everything. We loved the late night swims in the pool to the moonlight and watching the morning sunrise while eating breakfast on the patio. Overall, a fantastic location and worth every penny.

Beach Birthday Surprise!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shangri La to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday with our close friends. She was under the impression that we were travelling alone with our son and staying at a hotel. When we arrived, she was surprise greeted by our best friends (family of 4) and informed that we were instead staying at Shangri La. It was the ultimate birthday!

We all fell in love with the fantastic panoramic view of the crystal clear blue water of Goodman's Bay that hits you as soon as you walk in the door and is visible from almost every room of the house. We ate breakfast and lunch at the house nearly every day and took advantage of the grill and excellently appointed (and gorgeous) upscale kitchen a few nights during our stay, including a Thanksgiving feast catered by a local Chef. We rented a van to do some exploring (grocery runs, Atlantis water park and pools, swam with the dolphins, shopping downtown, dinners out, etc.). We also thoroughly enjoyed our days spent at the house with the music playing while we floated in the pool, played on the beach and kayaked all over Goodman’s Bay. The house even has a full media room, 2 line phones for local and international VOIP calls, and a fully equipped office with a printer (which was handy for printing directions for our adventures)!

Sue and her local management team were all fantastic to work with throughout the entire process! They will do anything within their power to ensure that guests are well taken care of and have anything that they might need to make their visit to Shangri La one that will never be forgotten. That is certainly the case for us!

This house exceeds all expectations and is even better in person than in the pictures (which are also amazing!). I can’t recommend Shangri-La highly enough. We’re can’t wait to go back!

Dancing in the Moonlight

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shangri La with a full moon lighting the patio (aka dance floor). This house sits right on the beach. If you stand by balcony near the pool you can look over the railing and watch the kids build a castle in soft, clean sand or swim in the clear, calm waters of Goodman's Bay. In the morning Eagle Rays glided right by the house in pairs.

We travel with a large group (3 families) and I'm picky about the house. Shangri La was perfect for us. There is a small cottage at the front of the property with 2 bedrooms: one has 3 bunk beds and one has a full bed. That worked well for our 3 single guys in their 20's and one newly married couple. (Emily ruled the roost out there).

The main house is truly more elegant than the website pictures reveal. We sat 14 around the outside patio table for dinner. It converted beautifully into a beer pong table (I still can't believe Jane and I came in second place.) The kitchen is wonderful. I loved that fridge! Pack light because there's a washer and dryer, lots of beach towels and a little closet outside with pool toys, coolers and chairs. I don’t need to go into detail because owner Sue Linzing will provide you with lots of information. She’s great about answering emails, too.

On the street side of the house the #10 bus stops frequently. That gave us a bit of freedom to explore in pairs or small groups. We dived with Bahama Divers and they picked us up right there. 3 of the guys golfed and they loved the course. Jet skis rentals zoomed by to see if we’d like to take one for a ride. We did. We also tried paddle boarding at the near by beach. I found it a little boring and expensive. It was more fun to take out Shangri La’s comfortable two person kayak and tool around the bay looking for turtles.

Two doors down from Shangri La is a family with 2 pontoon boats. “Captain Sam” will take your group for a ride. He called his brother “Captain Ben” to help when our group needed both pontoons. I doubt these two guys are licensed “captains” but they know the area well and were hilarious. We snorkeled and stopped for lunch.

We’ve stayed at 7 different Caribbean villas in as many years and Shangri La is my favorite.
