Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Nassau & Paradise Island - Sunrise Beach Villa #12

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6) #12 Sunrise

Sunrise Beach Villas-Sunrise 12

2 bedroom, King, 2 twins, pull out sofa bed-steps to Beach-Atlantis 2 minutes, hotel property, affordable, bar, restaurant, comfortable, family getaway, affordable, tropical, 2 pools on-site, close to all the excitement of Atlantis

Welcome to Sunrise Beach Resort Hotel and our villa Sunrise 12. Sunrise 12 has been transformed , completely re-tiled and new furniture-which is Indian inspired. We have furnishings directly from India. This is a relaxing retreat with great tropical decor, high-tech, with free Wi-Fi, with free unlimited calling to USA.

Sunrise Beach has a restaurant/bar on-site (Violas) and is on the beach. We are 2 minutes walk to Atlantis.

If your choice is not available then please inquire about Sunrise 12A and 9A, all ocean view and at Sunrise and 2 bedrooms and 2 bath. There are 2 pools on site --one outside your door!

Our emphasis is on creating relaxation in a splendid tropical environment.

We are an affordable choice for families

The design has Austrian chalet construction and at night it is a wonderful place to be. If you find hotels overwhelming, noisy, crowded and expensive then Sunrise Beach Resort is for you. If you want a meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner then visit Violas restaurant on site. Violas provided Bahamanian inspired food at good rates and friendly service. If you want watersports visit the beach for Parasailing, Banana boat rides and the excitement of seeing one of the best beaches in the world- Cabbage Beach.

If you want to go snorkeling or scuba diving then coming to Paradise Island is the place to be based. Take a stroll over to Atlantis and get an Aquaventure pass (sold at $110 per adult, $80 per child) for the most exhilarating rides of your life (including entering a tube surrounded by sharks).

You can get a Discover Atlantis pass to tour the grounds and see 'the dig' , the underwater lost continent replication. Remember the beach access is unrestricted, as is the use of casino (no surprise there!) and restaurants (which includes Carmines, Cafe Martinique and some of the best restaurants you could dream of). At night take a stroll down Paradise Island Drive and see 'the Cloisters'- a transplanted monastery which is a favorite to explore. Walk 5 minutes to the ferry terminal and hop on a water taxi to Colonial Nassau. Visit Cafe Matisse for lunch and enjoy Bahamanian hospitality and mouth watering food. Take off on a side trip to Exuma or the Pink Sands beach of Harbour island (in Eleuthera). This trip will convert you to saying 'it is truly better in the Bahamas'. We want you to have a wonderful time and provide you when booking with detailed information. For your entertainment LCD TVs are provided, alongside with unlimited N.American wide and local calling and wi-fi.

I have planned our vacations and I have found it nerve racking-is it good value? will others like it? will it be in the middle of nowhere? Yes I have made a couple of blunders and I put in place what I believe we need in a vacation-comfort, convenience and an ambiance of no chaos so we can relax. Some people like an action packed pace- so Atlantis nearby can provide this. Others want to be rejuvenated and this is what Sunrise is about. Others do not want to spend their holiday chasing their young children in a huge property-this is why Sunrise is appealing. Atlantis -intense water slides for 2 days maximum is ample-beyond that you are spending your hard earned money and not plugging in time for relaxation. Atlantis is a wonderful place, but very very costly for a family vacation, especially when you add the cost for each meal.

Why stay at Sunrise Beach?: The biggest decision when traveling is whether the people we book for will be happy with our choice. The trepidation of this has been palpable for me personally. I sincerely believe you will be thrilled in your decision. Choosing over the internet is a draining process with so many choices. Being a large family we have chosen this location because of what one need to achieve-good access to fun things to do, safe, clean, food readily available and easy beach access. A tranquil environment allows relaxation and connectivity within a family.

Advantages of booking at Sunrise Beach: Please do not waste countless hours emailing and calling other properties. Book here today, book your flight to Nassau and you are on a most spectacular island with no need to rent a car at peace with the sound of the ocean enveloping you.

Access to Atlantis and why to book at Sunrise: Atlantis is an expensive destination to stay at- extra charges add up to 18% on top of booking rate.

The cost of meals to feed a family is prohibitive. Having your own place to prepare Come and stay at Sunrise beach, the affordable choice. We offer the best value and have the added benefit of internet and long distance available at no charge.

Paradise Island is a beautiful safe and peaceful island connected by 2 bridges to Nassau. The island is only 3 miles

long so all the amenities are within walking distance. You are located one property away from Atlantis-closer to the main part of Atlantis than Atlantis visitors, who need to take a shuttle to where you can go. You are next door to the One and Only Ocean Club.

Downtown Nassau is a colonial city with lots of interesting things to do and see.

Paradise Island has a beach side, where we are located and the harbour side a few minutes walk away.

We provide very comfortable villas on Paradise Island and provide long distance calls without charge to home, as well as free internet service. All villas have central air conditioning.

To access Atlantis simply buy passes at Atlantis if going on watersides. Access to casino and restaurants naturally has no cost.

Sunrise Beach Resort Hotel is on the same site as us and has earned very high ratings. We rent independently to our guests, however to provide the most affordable rates. If you book last minute a special discount applies and if you book 2 or more places for the same time a 10% discount applies off nightly rate.

If you book more than multiple weeks we offer additional discounts. We have many repeat visitors and hope you will become one after your stay at Sunrise!

We have a final cleaning cost of $65. We look forward to welcoming you to Paradise Island and our Sunrise Beach Villas. If your choice of timing is not available please email as the others choices may be available.

Please email or call and ask for any more details for your trip planning.

About John Fitzsimmons

We are a family of 6- fell in love with Paradise Island 14 years ago. We keep coming back and over time have acquired 6 properties. 3 at Sunrise Beach and 3 at Living in Paradise. We enjoy decorating and creating unique atmospheres and providing the true essence of what vacations represent- and that is connecting with family and friends in a perfect atmosphere. We welcome you and ended up with our homes, because hotels were too compressed for our family size and did not have the options to cook and be cost effective. We love Paradise Island, because we can enjoy Atlantis and it's amenities. Onsite we have pools steps from our locations. We look forward to having you as part of our extended family and share Paradise with you.

John Fitzsimmons purchased this villa in 2010

Why John Fitzsimmons chose Nassau & Paradise Island

There is no place better than Paradise Island, beautiful, tropical, safe, relaxing, no need to rent a car, great people, terrific food, historic sites and since we have created relaxing homes with Bali, Goa inspired traditions we are realize one's imagination is excited by being here. When relaxed we become creative and refreshed. This inspires us to be able to take on the challenge of the hectic North American pace and realize the Bahamas will restore us quickly to a state of tranquility. It is always better in the Bahamas, anytime of the year and the Bahamanians make it one of the friendliest places to visit.

What makes this villa unique

This is the ideal site to unwind in one of these 4 villas we have on the beach. If a bigger family or group wish to have that special event rent more than one!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Two grandparents, our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons were here for 1 week. Wonderful! We are from Ontario, Canada, lots of snow, ice and cold, cold winds. What a treat here. We found the people of this island to be very friendly, especially the staff of Sunrise, we enjoyed your place very much.

Excellent and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The villa has the best of two worlds: being walking distance to Atlantis for Aquaventure park and other events AND having pool and ocean at doorstep in quet and private area. If you compare the prices with Atlantis hotels, this property is a better value since you get 2 separate bedrooms, each with own A/C, pretty comfortable living room and kitchen. John (the owner) provided really good recommendations regarding food ordering, places to eat and visit, transportation, and Atlantis. I printed them out. The only thing I couldn't figure out are electronic lockers but it's probably me since instructions were provided :) . Apple computer in the villa was a nice touch. Overall, it's a relaxing vacation that you can enjoy.

4.5 stars out of 5

4.5 stars out of 5

The Sunrise Beach Club can be considered your home away for home when visiting the Bahamas. The immaculate, spacious living quarters that sleeps six people comfortably, with a master bed and bathroom, a second bedroom holds two twin beds and includes its own bathroom, as well as a queen-size pull out bed located in the living room. This villa is completed with central air, flat screen TVs in each bedroom, computer for your convenience when booking last minute reservations across the islands, a full kitchen and dining as well as a grill on the back porch for when you decide to eat a home cooked meal, and a laundry mat for your convenience.

The location of this hotel is exceptional; just a few blocks away from the local grocery store, restaurants, shopping centers, tourist attractions, and Atlantis. Not to mention that the employees were nothing but pleasant and helpful throughout our stay.

When you’re not completely exhausted from the day's activities or singing Karaoke at Viola's (an outdoor bar & grill connect to the hotel) please enjoy the private pool located just outside your door or the ocean which is just a few steps away on Cabbage Beach.

My only complaints are that I wished the water pressure from the shower was stronger and there was a water filter for the tap water instead of having to buy bottled water. But trust me; the next time I go back to Paradise Island, Bahamas, I know I'll be booking Sunrise Beach Club.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments and welcome your return.

We loved it! Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Paradise Island several times but this was by far our best holiday. The resort condo accommodated our family comfortably as it was spacious, quiet and clean. We appreciated having two full bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The decor is exotic and the living room has enough furnishings for our whole family to spread out. The unit is a ground floor corner unit which was a real plus for us because it gave us easy in and out access for the pool area and bringing in the groceries since I cooked most meals.

The pool and beach area's were very private and quiet. There was never a problem finding a lounger. The resort had a relaxed feel and we enjoyed having an evening cocktail at the small restaurant which seemed to be frequented by both locals and vacationers.

My family and I all agree that the next time we visit the Island we will stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reinforcing the efforts we make. All 4 places listed with Vrbo/Homeaway provide that home away from home experience. We emphasize comfort in a great tropical setting. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Great vacation for family with young kids

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful villa right on the beach just walking distance to Atlantis water park. Perfect choice for those looking for two bedrooms at an affordable price away from the crowds at Atlantis and cruise lines. The beach was gorgeous and warm. Some days had bigger waves and some had calmer. The unit is nicely appointed with all the amenities you need to be comfortable and cook your own meals. The kids could run right out to the pool. We spent two days at Atlantis but would have been satisfied with one. Atlantis is not a super park for kids 6-8 as they are a little old for the kiddie slides and too small for the real slides. Snorkeling was great and jet skis can be rented. A local taxi driver helped us get fresh fish on the marina which we grilled for several nights. Grocery shopping on the main island helped save us a ton on restaurant costs. Only regret was not getting the $35 massage on the beach.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

We travelled to P.I. with my parents, who have been visiting the Bahamas for decades. It was my husband's first visit, and I have been there many times over the years. The location of the condo was terrific, we were right outside the pooldeck and we had an oceanview from the dining area. Viola's was close and so was Atlantis and all other dining and shopping. The pooldeck offered a good combination of sunshine and shade. The wifi, free local and long distance calls also met our needs. I realized many years ago that the standards in the Bahamas and other islands are different from ours, however, we were disappointed with the unit, because of the lack of cleanliness in the entire condo. The kitchen, the bathrooms, the showers, dishes, walls and floors needed a thorough cleaning. The rock garden also needs to be removed as it is a dust collector and a safety hazard.

Owner's Response: We value all opinions and we respond promptly if a location has sub-optimal presentation. We apologize for what you experienced and a quick call to our manager would have rectified any cleanliness issues and we encourage visitors to contact us on any issue of concern. They are impressed with our response to any issue The rock garden is an attractive feature that makes this place unique. At Sunrise no 2 places are alike which makes it a place travellers love to come back to.

Bahamas family vacation 2012

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a family vacation! Comfortable condos (we rented two for the 10 of us), great pools, and right on the beach, just 5 minute walk from Atlantis. We didn't need a car and just walked everywhere (took a taxi one time to go to the Nassau market). Recommend it highly.
