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,

Julie

Dancing in the Moonlight

  • 5 out 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.

Ideal location for beach vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week with two other families (total 14 people). This place is simply terrific. The house is gorgeous and fully appointed. Sweet Sonos sound system to keep the music playing, nice pool, large kitchen and all this sits within roughly 15 feet from the water. The beach is soft, beautiful white sand with friendly foot traffic pretty frequently. We cooked most nights which was made easy with the large, effective kitchen. The location is quite good for getting downtown and a dive bus from Bahamas Divers pulls up across the street. The grill works well and we gave it a workout. There is an impressive home theater downstairs that we used a bit but spent most time lounging around the pool. We had a few plumbing issues that were promptly dealt with by the local management. We have stayed at other villas were service comes but on an island-time schedule. Here any troubles were quickly and efficiently responded to by Tenecia our local contact, who was a delight. This is a lovely home, perfectly suited to a large group, that I am confident will please you as it did us. Don't wait, rent it and enjoy.

We stayed one week. EVERYTHING was wonderful. Sue was extremely helpful and spent much time answering our questions before our trip. Therefore we had most things planned and the week went very smoothly. Tanescia checked us in and out and was delightful! We had a couple of unavoidable minor issues, she responded immediately and kept everything running smoothly. Sharmene prepared two delicious,perfect meals for us. We rented jet skis from down the beach and a snorkel trip with Brian...both terrific. The jitney buses were very easy and convenient. We went to Atlantis, Dolphin Encounter, Fishfry and Poopdeck...all wonderful. The young children spent much time in Goodman Bay snorkeling,kayaking and swimming in the pool . A dream week!!

Shangri La Indeed

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from a wonderful week at Shangri La. Stayed a week but wish we were still there. House was perfect for our group of eight. Kids spent most of their waking hours in the pool. House had everything we needed including a lady who cleaned and pool service. It was indeed a trip that we'll remember for the rest of our lives.

Perfect beach house! Will be back!

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed at Shangri La a couple weeks ago and it was amazing! House is everything you see in the pictures and more. Looking out the windows all you see is blue water, the pool and patio furniture provided a great place to relax.

The property managers are very responsive and helped out with a ton of our planning - I would definitely recommend doing a catered dinner at the house!

Everything worked great, easy to get taxis, easy walk down the beach to casino, can rent jet skis from right down the beach, the television room (movie theater style!) was great, full office to get some work done if you need to... Feel like so many good things hard to even keep track of them all.

I will 100% recommend this house to friends and would stay here again on my next trip.

Bachelorette Weekend in Paradise - Only Regret is not Staying Longer!

  • 5 out of 5
My girl friends and I just returned from a weekend at Shangri-La and have already spoken with the owner about renting the property again next year - it's THAT great!

The house really is even better than the pictures and it is very well appointed. You feel like royalty the moment you step inside. The house is well stocked with the sort of things you don't want to have to think about picking up on your way in from the airport (e.g., toilet paper, coffee filters). In addition to sending us a wealth of information before our trip, the owners also have a HUGE binder full of information on anything and everything you could possibly think to do, experience or need during your stay.

The main house is laid out exceptionally well such that there are water views from almost every room (with the exception of one bedroom) and each bedroom has it's own bath. Unfortunately for our group, only 7 of the 11 of us who were supposed to be there actually made it (thanks to Winter Storm Rex causing flight cancellations across the mid-Atlantic), so we had PLENTY of room. I think we still would have been very comfortable had everyone been able to make it - we didn't even set foot in the guest house after our initial tour!

The kitchen is fantastic for groups wanting to cook together. And the dining room is superb. We also loved watching Olympics coverage in the theater room!

The outdoor space is amazing - words can't describe it! We hardly left the house because we so enjoyed lounging by the pool, having meals at the large table out back and walking along the beautiful (and very calm) beach).

The on-site property manager, Kyla, was lovely! She gave us a very thorough introduction to the house and made herself available for anything we needed (we didn't need a thing though!).

We did note a couple minor things that we hope will be changed next time we stay at Shangri-La:
(1) The master bedroom balcony door was missing a screened door. Not a big deal in and of itself, but because we wanted to hear the ocean roaring at night, we slept with the door open and ended up being an all-night buffet for mosquitoes. Should be an easy fix.
(2) We could only get one of the burners on the outdoor grill going. Could have been user error but we were really looking forward to grilling out. A new grill would be a nice addition!
(3) In spite of trying to space out our showers, it seemed there was never enough hot water. Not a huge deal since it was warm outside, but noticeable.
