About Chad and Candice Roberts

Ragged Edge is owned by the Roberts family. Chad is a Bahamian born and bred native. He met his wife, Candice, when they were in their teens during a family cruise. The two were married in 1999 and blessed with a beautiful daughter in 2004. The family currently resides in New Kent, VA.

Chad and Candice Roberts purchased this house in 2008

Why Chad and Candice Roberts chose Nassau & Paradise Island

After our daughter was born we decided it was time to upgrade so we spent the next few years designing our dream home. Just as the plans were being sent out for bid, some friends of ours told us that we should go and take a look at this oceanfront home that has just dropped its asking price. Candice saw it once and it was our dream home already completed and on the water. We closed on it a few months later and have enjoyed every minute of it since.

What makes this house unique

From almost every room in Ragged Edge you can see the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In my 74 years, I've never actually lived (or visited) anywhere so lovely - not for a day - let alone a week. No regrets.

Fabulous Seaside house

  • 5 of 5

Ragged Edge is truly a magnificent vacation home. It is beautiful and roomy, accommodating 7 adults with ease. The master suite is massive and all of the beds are comfortable. It has a well stocked kitchen including a margarita machine, a heavy duty front loading washer and dryer, a great selection of movies, games and books, snorkeling equipment, and a raft. The back deck is wonderful with absolutely stunning vistas and with gorgeous sunrises. We spent part of every day walking off the back deck and dropping into the crystal clear waters. The snorkeling was terrific with an abundance of brilliantly colored fish around several coral reefs. We had no problems with undertow or difficult currents.

We were glad that we did not rent a car as the traffic was terrible closer to town and the opposite side of the road configuration was very disorienting. Joe picked us up from the airport and drove us to the grocery store, where we stocked up for the week, then he drove us to the house. He was wonderful. For the first few days, we called Joe and he had someone come get us and take us wherever we needed to go. He just needed 30 minutes heads up. Then later, we called and were picked up and taken home. One day, we could not get ahold of Joe for reasons unclear. Maybe his phone went out. So we called Cheryl's taxi service. Cheryl and her crew were equally great, prompt and professional. We used the car services every day and the total cost for the week was almost the same as if we had rented a 7 person vehicle. And the stress level was much less. We went to Atlantis one day and it was great. We went to Sandy toes and had a lot of fun. The snorkeling at Sandy Toes was great but not much better than behind the house. We went to the pirate museum, one of the forts, cabbage beach and shopped around town. All of it was very enjoyable. We were always anxious to get back to the house every afternoon to enjoy the snorkeling and relaxing on the deck. We ate at the house every morning for breakfast and dinner every night.

We are very active but in my opinion the closest grocery is not really within walking distance, esp with bags. But it is no big deal because our driver would run us by at the end of the day and we would get whatever we needed. The grocery stores are very nice with the same brands as we get at home in the U.S.

Thank you Chad and Candace for sharing your beautiful and incredibly affordable home with us. It was an epic vacation that will be long remembered

Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5

Four and one-half (4-1/2) stars!! Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had spectacular weather the week we were there. The home is clean and well maintained. The back patio is the perfect place to enjoy the ocean view. We loved the location because it was away from the congestion of downtown, but not far enough to deter trips to town. The beach close to the house was not accessible when we were visiting and the ocean was too choppy to take the small inflatable. We tried Yamacraw Beach one day and enjoyed it--it is close and lightly populated. Once we tried Cabbage Beach, though, didn’t want to go anywhere else. The beach and water at Cabbage Beach are phenomenal and it is not too crowded in the middle of the week. We absolutely loved Cafe Matisse--great food, service and ambiance. We also enjoyed the Green Parrot for very casual. Solomon's was hands-down our grocery store of choice. With a 7 month old, we did a fair amount of cooking and were able to find good selections there. Car rental was a must for us although my daughter and her husband went to dinner one night via taxi and that worked well. Our only slight disappointment were the beds--other than the master bedroom bed which was very comfortable. Adding mattress toppers would be an easy, relatively inexpensive improvement. This is a wonderful home and the owners are exceptionally responsive and accommodating.

Great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us from five different households converged on Ragged Edge for a week and we had the best time. Great kitchen, sleeping quarters, living rooms, and outside space made us feel very relaxed. Location is far enough away from the bustle of the spring breaker crowd to make the trip highly relaxing. I highly recommend it.

Perfection in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderfully relaxing 2 weeks at Ragged Edge in October / Nov last year. If you are looking for a private, luxurious property in paradise then look no further! The pictures could never convey the beauty of this property or the stunning view from almost every room. The outside space is amazing and a perfect spot to spend lazy afternoons in the sun, cocktails in hand. The turquoise waters and ever-changing vistas simply take your breath away. The snorkelling is great straight off the back of the property.

The house is huge and the owners have thought of everything with your comfort in mind. The master bedroom is simply stunning and I particularly loved what I called the ‘ocean room’ where many a morning was spent with a cup of tea whilst watching the sun come up. There are many DVDs to choose from, lots of games and things to do. You are just a short drive away from Nassau and Paradise Island and near to grocery stores, etc.

Some recommendations: Atlantis is most definitely worth a visit, it is an amazing hotel lots of fun, superb aquarium and we can definitely suggest the steaks at Olives within the hotel. They were superb but expect to pay a premium price for it. A must is afternoon tea at the ‘One and Only Ocean Club’, great value and of course a visit would not be complete without the ‘Casino Royale’ Cocktail.

Lovely meal also at Compass Point and whilst over that part of the island spend the day at Love Beach, it’s absolutely beautiful which has a rustic but perfectly formed little bar serving beer, cocktails and snacks. We spent 2 wonderful days here. Also a day out at Blue Lagoon island interacting with the dolphins – my 6 year old daughter was beyond excited and you also get a lazy afternoon on the lagoon.

We have travelled all over the world and this is certainly one of our favourite spots. Ragged Edge is perfect in every way and Nassau / Paradise Island are truly stunning. If you have a busy life this is the perfect place to de-stress and unwind. We will be back!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Ragged Edge. House was exactly as it was described and worked perfectly for our family vacation. It was very quiet and had all the amenities of home. We bought fresh seafood most days from the market at Montagu Park and grilled them outside. The super markets were nearby, but I would recommend having a car to get around. The main bedroom and kids room were on one side of the house and other two rooms were on the other which worked out great since we had multiple families. It felt private and safe, and a great winter retreat from the northeast.

Ragged Edge is located on the Eastern end of New Providence in a very quiet and scenic residential area surrounded by other luxurious homes. The ocean is right in your backyard where you will find many reefs for snorkeling. There are also a few beautiful beaches within swimming and walking distance from the house. There is also a local grocery store, liquor store and pharmacy within 1 to 2 miles.

It is a short ten minute drive to historic downtown Nassau for all your duty-free shopping needs, Paradise Island and the world famous Atlantis. However, if a dolphin adventure is your 'thing' make sure and check out Dolphin Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island - you can also make it a day trip with a beach day add-on.

A comprehensive activity and guidebook is provided in the house as well as maps of the local area.
