Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms

The Exuma apartment, is a ground floor apartment that sits within

a small group of 9 apartments accessed only if you have keys for the main gate, we live in one of the apartments so are on site should you need anything, we also have secured parking and manned security between the hours of 7.00 pm to 7.00 am

It has stunning views of the ocean from both the lounge and master bedroom,with patio doors offering direct access to the sandy sun deck area with own seating area. Watch stunning golden sunsets right on your balcony. Only 5 mins away from the the 4.2 billion resort Baha Mar the largest casino in the Caribbean

We are conveniently located 10 mins from the airport

The #10 bus that stops right outside Sunset Cove by the Conch Stall, will take you all along the main tourist route and into downtown Nassau for $1.25 passing by Sandals, Breezers, Melia where you can buy day passes to access their facilities for the day should you wish, only five mins away from Sunset Cove

Take the stress out of arriving so that you can be ready to relax and enjoy your oceanfront holiday as soon as you arrive, for just $35 we can arrange for a taxi to greet you at the airport, take you for your first 30 minute shop whilst it waits, and then brings you to Sunset Cove where we will be waiting to greet you with the keys.

Enjoy a quiet day on the sun deck area making use of our hammocks, sun loungers, picnic tables and BBQs here you can launch the kayaks and sea hammocks and have access to snorkel equipment free for guest use. We can also arrange for Jet Ski trips right from the steps, take a ride on your own or with a guide $60 for 30 mins.

The beach that belongs to Sunset Cove is accessed through a gate on the property with direct beach access to a beautiful quiet sandy beach with stunning turquoise waters, with sunshades, deck chairs and coolers available for guest use.

If you're feeling adventurous, experience some amazing snorkelling right in front of the property , feel free to take a stroll along to say hello to Buddy our Green Amazonian parrot, who will be happy you stopped for a chat! He has several phrases to include "Pretty Boy" "Hello" "Goodbye" and has unfortunately mastered a perfect wolf whistle and of course, remember to be outside in time for those amazing sunset views that we are named after they are simply breathtaking, we have the perfect location to witness the green flash as the sunsets over the ocean, something considered to be a sign of good luck to witness and believed by some cultures to be a "Glimpse of Paradise"

Nesbitts, a small local restaurant is located right across the road, offers great local Bahamian food, and some good old fashioned music is guaranteed from their very popular jukebox, a short 5 min walk is the Blue Sail & Deck Restaurants both very popular

A short stroll west of the property will take you to the European bakery which produces delicious pastries for breakfast and lunch, and the Pink Octopus restaurant

Please note these are simple, clean, family apartments, not high end granite and marble as reflected in the price and also that over the festive season I only take bookings for a weeks stay starting 16th Dec - 6th Jan.

Review of The Abaco Apartment "Glorious Sunsets"



Andres A

Perfect Location - nice little paradise



Left on Dec 8, 2016 for a stay in Nov 2016

We spent the thanksgiving weekend there. We were 4 adults and 2 children. They provided a playpen for our baby and even installed a swing set for our toddler. There had lots of toys for the kids which were clean and organized and also kayaks, snorkeling equipments, etc, etc. We couldn't use most of it due to the short trip, but we will be back soon. The condo is located near one of the best public beaches in Bahama (next to sandals), near a big grocery store, and about 15 min driving distance to downtown Nassau and Paradise Islands. The condo was great. It has a parking area, fully equipped kitchen, grill, washer and dryer, a/c. We didn't need anything else. Will be back soon

It was a wonderful week of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Mary & Peter we’re very accommodating. We really enjoyed sitting out on the patio. The view is amazing. It was fun taking the kayaks out. We pretty much had the beautiful sandy beach to the left of the property all to ourselves.

I would recommend going to Quality Market, instead of Super Value for meats. Make sure to bring bug repellent.

Perfect honeymoon get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned home from our honeymoon to Nassau where we stayed at Sunset Cove. The Exuma condo was EXCELENT. We loved waking up to our view of the ocean. We made a few trips to the grocery store and cooked many of our own meals. Be prepared, groceries are more expensive but still way cheaper than eating out. Plus my wife has a gluten allergy so cooking our own food is safer. Mary and Peter were excellent hosts. Mary met us at the gate and showed us the basics of the condo then left us alone. She was quick to respond to a couple of emails we sent her about a few questions we had. Peter helped us get a coconut down and cracked open. He even gave us a ride back from the grocery store.

The condo had a decent grill and enough seating on the sun deck for lots of folks to sit comfortably. We used the snorkel gear and kayaks on the property. There is a reef that runs directly out from the condo. So instead of paying $70 a person to go out on a guided snorkel tour, we just went and explored our own back yard. While snorkeling, we found sea urchin, sand dollars, coral and lots of colorful fish. We took a walk down the beach each night and loved it.

The bed was a bit stiff but slept okay. The condo has good WiFi. We were able to stream movies every night via the laptop we brought. One day we took the local bus into town. The cost is $1.25 and took us straight into downtown. The trip took about 20 min but it had AC so it was an enjoyable trip. We spent one day checking out the straw market and shops downtown.

We loved our trip to Nassau and loved that we didn’t have to spend exorbitant amounts of money to enjoy the island, food and fun.

Wonderful retreat from the real world!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time during our week as guests of Mary and Peter. The apartment is as pictured and described, absolutely no surprises. The view cannot be beat and, in fact, when selecting dinner restaurants, we chose not to pay “for the view” because there was seriously none better to be had than our own!

This a two story facility and this particular apartment is on the ground floor. THIS means that you simply walk out one of your two sliders onto the sandy patio area, as opposed to having to go up/down the stairs on the street side and around the building to access the shared sandy patio area. Major convenience!

The shared area looks out over the gorgeous Caribbean and offers everything from hammocks and chairs to lounges, picnic tables and shade umbrellas. There are play things to keep the little ones busy in the sand and floaty things to keep adults busy in the surf.

My only word of “caution “ is if you intend to walk in and see granite, hardwood, and marble finishes in this apartment. Walk on, for this is not the place for you. This is the place for you to not worry if you happen to track a bit of sand in with you, or if you leave a wet swim suit on the tile floor for a few minutes too long. Hazel the Housekeeper is not going to pick up after you, you’re on your own and it’s glorious! Let your hair down, run around in your undies... you’re on vacation!!

Great spot!!

  • 5 of 5

The lovely units are well appointed and comfortable, but it is all about the VIEW. We could walk 10 steps and put our feet in the water. We could hear the surf all night. The local buses made trips all over the island possible.

  • 3 of 5

Unit is worn and tired. Needs update. AC unit was out day 1 but the hosts dropped in a big new unit day 2...thanks for that. BBQ needs to go to the dump. Filthy dirty and no handle...cant open and close the lid.

Owner's Response: Hi Patrick, Glad you appreciated our swift response in replacing the A/C unit You read our mind BBQ is already at the dump they are all being replaced, salt air so close to the ocean makes BBQ,s almost disposable. Sorry we had to ask you to smoke your cigars in the area beside the apartments we were getting complaints about the strong smell wafting into everyone else's apartments, it was in the rules we sent you before you arrived but we could tell you weren't pleased when we reminded you. Kind regards Mary & Peter
