About the property

Sea Shells - Renovated Oceanfront Townhome in newer part of Delaporte Point, Cable Beach, Nassau, Bahamas.

Our modern townhome is located within the private residential community of Delaporte Point. Enjoy the breathtaking views and the best picturesque sunsets over the Bahamian waters from our generous west facing patio. Delaporte Point is a unique peninsula surrounded by ocean, private beach at your doorstep and beautifully maintained gardens. There are two swimming pools with sun lounges and deck for your enjoyment.

The townhome has three (3) large bedrooms; two (2) bathrooms (including the master ensuite) and a separate powder room on the ground level. All bed linen (organic), bath and beach towels are provided plus beach chairs, sun umbrella and cooler for your enjoyment. Some of the best snorkelling and sea life surrounds us.

The residence is over 3 levels and is spacious and well appointed. On the first floor you will find the kitchen, powder room and open plan living room leading to the patio with sun lounges and seating/dining area. The second floor has two large bedrooms and a large bathroom and laundry. The master bedroom and ensuite is on the third floor.

The local #10 jitney bus stops right at the front gate every 10-15 minutes to take you to different parts of the island including downtown; ferry to Paradise Island/Atlantis; cruise ship dock; Cable Beach Casino and so on ... Restaurants, beaches, gym and grocery shopping are all at your doorstep, within 5-10 minute walking distance. If you would prefer you can hire a car and discover this island paradise at your leisure.

Spectacular Views!! 7/26/17-8/2/17

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a more modern style 3 bedroom with spectacular views, this is your place. The pictures of the water from the balcony don't do this unit justice. The views from the west deck and balcony are absolutely unbelievable. My family did a lot of snorkeling off of the rocks during high tide....so many fish everywhere with beautiful colors to look at. You can spend hours doing this. The Delaporte beach is also the best beach experience we have had in the Caribbean (including Cancun Hotel Zone, La Romana, Grand Cayman, Cozumel). Very minimal seaweed on the shore (which is rare in the Caribbean these days). Gentle waves less than a foot high, great for kids enjoyment. Crystal clear snorkeling.

As far as the unit, we made good use of the convection oven. Nice touch with the washer/dryer. Modern fixtures and furniture. WiFi strength on the lower level could be a bit better but it works great on the upper levels.

If traveling from the U.S., we recommend bringing as many groceries as possible, the stores are 2-5x more expensive than that in the U.S. due to imports. We also recommend using the bus system for travel along West Bay St., they run seemingly every 5 minutes until 7:30 pm.

Also, a special thank you to Barbara. She was there to answer all of our questions and concerns. Fantastic lady!!

Amazing location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do justice for this place! My sister, a few friends and I stayed at Peter and Sue's home recently. We had the most amazing trip and felt like we hit the jackpot staying at this place. The patio is right on the ocean for amazing sunsets. There are two pools, a private beach, and a few restaurants within walking distance. The bus picks you up right outside the gate and the fare is only $1.25. The drivers are all extremely friendly and helpful in making sure you get to where you need to go. Everyone on the island was helpful and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

There are plenty of things to do around the area and a grocery store close by. We spent much of our trip playing cards and eating on the balcony, or at the beach or pools. We did a lot of little day excursions which were super easy to get to from Delaporte Point (I.e. Downtown or Love Beach). If you love coffee, visit Louis and Steen's New Orleans Coffeehouse!

The condo is extremely close to the airport and the property manager Barbara picked us up and dropped us off. She was wonderful and helpful!

Overall our group decided we must make a trip back to Nassau. Thank you Peter and Sue for the amazing stay!

Lovely house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time in this property and would definately return.

The aircon in the top floor bedroom and front bedroom is not as efficent as the back bedroom. It could do with being a couple of degrees cooler. Apart from that spot on.

I stayed in the back balcony bedroom which was cool and comfortable.

Wonderful...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at your property, and can't wait to return. The location was great, and the property itself was clean, comfortable, and had incredible views. We loved the pools, beach and the local restaurants as well. Excellent!

Relaxing, Great Location, Very Well Furnished

  • 5 of 5

Peter is a great host. Leading up to our stay and during the reservation process he was very responsive and accommodating. The condo itself is beautiful. If you don't want to stay in a cramped hotel room this is the place to be. Its conveniently located, spacious and has all the amenities you need to be comfortably stay for a week or longer. The views from the living room and bedroom are spectacular. Just as you see in the pictures. The three bedrooms are all well-furnished and has all the linens you need. The kitchen, dining and living areas are very modern, stocked with everything you need. The TVs, BBQ grill, washer dryer, stove top, wine cooler, oven and microwave were all modern, clean and in good working condition. The condo is in a gated community in a good, safe area. It's about a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Nassau and about 10 minutes to the airport. Barbara was a great caretaker. She picked us up and dropped us of to the airport, and was always available when we needed her. She also provided us with a rental vehicle so we did not have to rent from a vehicle from a major rental company. Cost of living is expensive in the Bahamas. There are many good restaurants but they are not cheap. You'll easily spend $150-$200 for a family of 3-4. Eat at the Arawak Cay. The food is local and reasonably priced. Groceries stores are nearby but they are expensive as well. If you can carry food and even alcohol from the U.S. do that. No problem getting through customs. All in all, I would highly recommend renting the Sea Shells condo from Peter.
