This was my first trip to Nassau so I did not know the area. The owner helped me enormously with her local knowledge about places otherwise unknown to visit for photography, she even organized a car rental! The house is quite magnificent; cheerfully decorated; full of natural light, very spacious and relaxing; which I really appreciated after spending the day wandering the island!

We could not speak highly enough of the property or our hosts. Waking up in the mornings to that view is a memory that I will treasure my whole life and I can't expect it to be beaten! On to the practicalities - the flat / house is well equipped with everything you might need and more, outside there are kayaks, snorkels, goggles, toys.... and the hammocks (2 of them) strung between palm trees come straight from the movies. Peter and Mary were wonderful hosts, welcoming and informative but not interfering. There is a bus stop right outside, and a $1.25 trip takes you straight into Nassau centre. The house is peaceful and tranquil, but the bus means you are close enough to the supermarket and the hustle bustle of the town. As Mary says herself in her description, you do need beach shoes, when the tide is out, crossing the rocks to get into that beautifully clear warm sea to swim amongst all those tropical fish, can be a challenge!! We have been back almost a week now and it is already feeling like a bit of a dream, but I would have NO HESITATION in recommending this property or these hosts. P.S. I did read a review which described the property as a bit "tired", personally I think that is harsh! Unless you were expecting some kind of 10 * hotel experience with lots of shiney chrome and glass, you will be more than happy!
