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.

If you are on the fence about doing it, JUST DO IT!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience. It was terrific.

The house was beautiful. The kitchen and dining room were great, and the deck was amazing. The entire house exceed our expectations. The house manager/maintenance person were very helpful for the very minor requests we had of them.

We would HIGHLY recommend Joe for taxi services. He is great, fair priced and very accommodating.

While we would not refer to the grocery store as within walking distance, after 1 major trip to the store we were able to survive off of quick stops at the market or liquor store on the way back from day trips. We also utilized the fisherman's market to purchase grouper and fresh lobster for 3 different meals. Joe, the taxi driver, was very helpful in this transaction.

We had 6 in our group but easily could have accommodated 8.

If you are looking for time on the beach, you will need to set up a day trip or half day trip to the beach on paradise island. The water access at the home is rough and rocky, so bring water shoes. The snorkeling right in front of the house was nice as there were a couple reefs a little ways out.

Also, our incoming flight was re-routed and we ended up getting in 7 hours later than we were supposed to. Most liquor stores close by 8 or so and most are not open on Sunday. What you can find will have limited hours, limited availability and higher prices.

If you have a chance, go to "Fish Fry" area for lunch or dinner. We really enjoyed it.

Overall, we had a very good time and have no reservations about recommending the property to others.

Best Family Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! WOW! WOW! We stayed at the Ragged Edge for our annual family Spring Break vacation and had the absolute best time ever!! The house is even more beautiful than the pictures and the views of the ocean are breathtaking!! From the moment we walked in the door, it felt like "home" and we knew we had picked the perfect place to stay. We went to Paradise Island a couple of days, walked down to the public beach down the road one day and took a Speedboat Adventures tour where we spent the day snorkeling, feeding stingray, eating Conch salad and my husband and nephew even got to wrangle a shark, which was an amazing experience, and I HIGHLY recommend!! We also had a great time just spending the days relaxing on the wonderful patio. There is nothing like sitting on that patio, looking at the most beautiful aqua blue water and listening to the waves hit the shoreline. It was truly paradise!! I also HIGHLY recommend if you do not rent a car, to call Joe. We made arrangements, with information provided by Chad and Candice Roberts, before we left for vacation and Joe was standing there at the airport waiting for us, as we walked out. Him and his wife are absolutely FABULOUS! They took us all around the area and told us stuff to do and see while we were there. They would even pick us up from the beach and take us to the grocery store for a few things on our way back to the Ragged Edge. One day, we went to the fresh fish market to buy fish and they helped us pick it out and purchase it, to make it easier on us. We grilled out almost every night in the amazing outdoor kitchen and had many wonderful conversations in the beautiful sunroom. With the house being so big, we were able to all stay together and spend time with one another, which living in different cities back home, those times are far and few in between. We made many wonderful memories at the Ragged Edge and will cherish them dearly! Thank you Chad and Candice for everything!! You definitely helped make our annual family Spring Break vacation one to remember!!!

Great Property, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This property delivered exactly as promised. It was a great location right on the ocean front that made for serene evenings on the deck relaxing and listening to the waves. The views as we first walked into the house for the first time blew us all away.

We rented a car which was a great option as we toured the island and were able to visit many beaches. The information booklet at the house and online provided great advice and tips with markets, downtown, restaurants and shopping all close by.

The house was more than spacious with 7 of us (3 couples) and had everything we needed. We had a fantastic vacation and no small part of it was this rental property and Chad and Candice ensuring that they delivered on their promise. I have no problem recommending this property for those that want to escape the hotel or all-inclusive stays.

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.

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.
