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,

Guy’s trip - couldn’t be better

  • 5 of 5

I recently visited for a guys trip with friends and the property management made this stay exceedingly easy, allowing us to dedicate most of the time to relaxing. The facilities were amazing and everything was in top shape. The pool was set up for us and stayed warm and comfortable even in January. While I accidentally left a couple of valuable items in the house, the staff has helped us by promptly locating them and offering a safe return to us via fedex. We could not have chosen a better spot to stay. Thanks, Shangri La!

Amazing house, beautiful view, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely amazing, the views were breathtaking and such a relaxing treat to wake up to every early morning with the kids! I cannot say enough about the staff that we were able to meet and get to know a bit throughout our stay: Dee was absolutely FABULOUS -- she was incredibly helpful, super responsive and professional and you could tell she really cares about the property. Alesandro was also incredibly sweet and professional when he came by to take care of the pool. Charmaine was also very accommodating on our last day as we were trying to stay out of her way while also help make things as easy as possible for her.

We chose not to rent a car during our stay, but needed to get out a few times to pick up groceries. Dee recommended a driver for us that we used (Gregory) who was the best. He took us to multiple grocery stores so we could find exactly what we needed for Thanksgiving. He waited while we shopped and helped us with our groceries too. He was extremely cost effective compared to calling a taxi and then calling another taxi after shopping.

We spent most of our time out by the pool; I'm pretty sure our toddler has turned into a fish. Every morning she woke up and it was the first thing she asked to do. She must have said "I love the Bahamas, Mommy" at least once per day to me! It was pretty difficult to get her to agree to leave on Saturday, until we reminded her we had to get back to our dog. :)

Sue was also so incredibly helpful and informative leading up to the trip -- the whole week from check-in to check-out could not have gone more seamlessly. It was also very helpful to have a crib, pack n' play, and highchair at our disposal since we had 3 small children traveling with us. A few other amazing details about the house: filtered water, an awesome TV room, more towels than you will ever need, close to multiple grocery stores and nextdoor to the new Baha Mar resort, paddle boards and a kayak at your disposal, an outdoor ping pong table, tons of pool floats for the kids, SONOS surround sound inside and outside (which made lounging by the pool even more fun), and direct access to the beautiful beach! Shangri La is an absolutely stunning property and we hope to return in the future!

very nice

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Very comfortable for my group of 9. It's also about a ten minute walk from Baha Mar, which is a beautiful new casino/hotel right up the beach. We did some snorkeling on the reef about a quarter mile out and that was also beautiful. Finally, I highly recommend using Chef Perry Sweeting, who we hired to cook a couple of meals for us. He does a great job and makes things very convenient. Overall, my whole group loved it. (*only negative: I would not use the car service recommended by the local property manager. The prices they charged were exorbitant.)

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your thoughts on your stay. Glad you enjoyed Nassau and Shangri La home! I am sorry to hear about the car service you hired as I am not familiar with them. I have an approved list of taxi companies and drivers which are reliable and reasonable. Altho Chef Perry has come to cook at the house for our guests and is skilled in his profession, I do not wish to continue recommending his services for our guests. There are plenty of other options available.

A slice of heaven !

  • 5 of 5

Shangrai La was fabulous---and the perfect home for a family vacation-- the patio and view to ocean was just beautiful with a covered patio with plenty of seating areas for everyone to enjoy and then just a step down to the ocean.

There was a book with allot of helpful information and Dee greeted us and took care of us for any needs which was awesome. It was like having our own private concierge.

The home living quarters were also perfect for our family of 13--

and we had lots of room in the kitchen and allot of areas to dine at inside and out. The house location was awesome to the grocery casino and dining out. Restaurants were very good and fun

---service was a little slow but all the spots were very enjoyable and food was delicious.

Some of the family went boating, snorkling, paddle boarding

and kayaking--lots of fish and turtles to see. Took long walks on the beach or just relaxed in the amazing pool.

It was a real treat for everyone and a trip to remember. We highly recommend it!

It's obvious why this property continues to get a 5 star rating!! Look no further and stay here!

  • 5 of 5

This property is ABSOLUTELY amazing!! There were 12 of us with plenty of space. Two of the 19 yr. olds slept in the guest house, and 4 others (ages 10-17) slept in the bedroom with 3 twin beds and an XL air mattress near the TV room. The adults had the bigger bedrooms which were incredibly comfortable with their own bathrooms. The kitchen was very large and there is plenty of eating space. Kids loved the TV room with theatre style seating. The weather was amazing even in August. We used every bit of our sunscreen so pack a lot!! The water filtration system was awesome since so many of us are huge water drinkers. Having the washer and dryer was great and used daily. Plenty of beach and bath towels that you can wash as you need. We never ran out of hot water for showers. We used the kayak often and rafts. For restaurants, we ate at Compass Pointe, Fish Fry and Poop Deck. We also grilled in one night, ordered pizza from Marco's, etc. The general consensus was that Atlantis was overrated and overpriced. Long wait times due to all the folks from the ships. Casino at Baha Mar was so close and fun. Went to Nassau on Thursday because only one ship was in so less crowded. We had a private yacht excursion from 4-8pm with Captain Craig and it was worth every penny. He's a great guy and showed us so much -- all the big homes, the islands (even saw Gilligan's Island!) -- we brought our own food and drink on the yacht and stopped for a bit to swim off Rose Island. We also went on a 1.5 hour snorkeling trip and we were picked up right at the property out on the beachfront. Other fun included Dolphin Swim at Blue Lagoon and renting two jet skis for an hour. Keith gives the best rates. We left business cards in the basket of the folks we used. Working with the property owner Sue, property manager Kyla and Dee was so easy and they bent over backwards making our trip STRESS FREE. Kyla had a mini van and SUV brought to the house and we used both almost daily. Grocery stores are close by (expect to pay a lot for groceries compared to the U.S.), but we packed my son's gluten free snacks which was needed since there is not much of a selection there. The internet was spotty at times but Dee came quickly to reset it. Call ahead for taxi service to and from airport via Kyla -- she'll call Cheryl's Taxi Service -- to get best rates and not taken advantage of by taxi drivers at the airport. Overall, this was by far the best family vacation! Thanks Sue, Kyla & Dee!

Awesome Graduation Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 just spent a week at ShangriLa to celebrate 3 of our kids high school graduations and had a fantastic time. The house was the perfect size for our group that we never had to use the guest cottage. We appreciated all the beach floats, the kayak and paddle board provided. Waking up to the view each day was amazing. The covered area on the back patio was our favorite spot to hang out after a day in the sun. We cooked many dinners at home and the grill was in pristine condition which is rare with a rental. The kitchen had everything you needed and then some. Everyone enjoyed the media room in the evenings to watch movies. Location was so convenient from the airport and getting around was simple with our rental cars. We highly recommend Captain Sam from Bay West Adventures located just a few houses down the beach. He took us all out for a 1/2 day boating where we snorkeled, swam with the turtles and went to Rose Island. Our only complaint is the time went by too fast!!!
