Overview

About the property

Family apartment with 2 bedrooms, sleeps 5

The Flamingo Cay apartment sits within a small group of 9 apartments accessed only by 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 Experience the most wonderful views from a family size balcony.

This property is set over the 2nd and 3rd floor has two bedrooms, both en suite. The master bedroom featuring a queen size bed and a further day bed, with beautiful views of the ocean, and the second bedroom featuring two twin beds and a garden view. Only 5 mins away from the the 3.5 billion resort BahaMar 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 and 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"

In our garden area we have a swing and playhouse that has recently been remodeled and fitted out with a full kitchen, with parents in mind; we have a comfortable patio set allowing parents to wait in comfort while their food is being prepared and cups of tea are made. Buddy our Amazon parrot often comes out to sunbathe on the sandy deck area, he loves children, he has many phrases to include “Hello” “Goodbye”, “Come Here” "Pretty Boy" " What you Doing" "Come Here" and has unfortunately mastered a perfect wolf whistle !

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.

Wow - beautiful view, lots of space



Left on Apr 15, 2017 for a stay in Apr 2017

What a great place to stay! We could see palm trees and beachfront right out our balcony and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. The beach was right outside - hardly any walk at all to get there - and it was fun to explore the tide pools at low tide. This is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit with lots of space to spread out. We were very comfortable. We had such a relaxing vacation.

Perfect vacation home lots of room

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at the sunset cove. We were in the bahamas for a friends wedding. Beach is steps away. Saw a stingray when swimming and lots of tropical fish. There is a lot of space in the condo. Everything you would need. Enjoyed reading a good book on the hammock listening to the waves. Thanks Peter and Mary!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! Nice quiet location, safe. Great access to beach. Very clean and well maintained. Wonderful to open balcony doors and listen to waves. Right on bus route. 10 mins away from most places. Peter and Mary were so nice and helpful prior to our arrival with really great info about the island!

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are thinking about booking, stop thinking and just do it! 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!

Great Location and great condos'

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Nassau at Sunset Cove. The condo was very clean, we felt safe, the sandy beach is 100 yards away, and the sunsets are spectacular Peter and Mary were super nice and helpful. While we were there we looked around at other places but we came to the conclusion we got the best property on that stretch of beach.

Place is "OK" - View is awesome

  • 3 of 5

Just got back from a weeks vacation. The place was ok. It had all the basic amenities we needed... but wasn't great. The beds were soft and sagged. Towels were old & dingy. Toaster sort of worked (on one side). Coolest setting for the Air was 75 degrees... which is fine on the main level but was warmer upstairs.

The location is great. However the unit we had (Flamingo Cay) doesn't have direct access to the beach area. You have to go out the front door..out a gate, thru the parking lot and in another gate to the beach. Not a huge hardship... but not convenient.

All that said...it is on the bus route for the #10 and #12B which can take you a lot of places. The view from the beach area to the water was amazing and we did enjoy a lot of very nice sunsets. I doubt I will rent there again but probably won't be going back to the Bahamas anytime either.

Owner's Response: Hi Wendy, I am really confused that you say you did not realise Flamingo Cay was not ground floor as it clearly states in the write up on the Homeaway site where you made your booking "Experience the most wonderful views from a family size balcony.This property is set over the 2nd and 3rd floor has two bedrooms, both en suite. The master bedroom featuring a queen size bed and a further day bed, with beautiful views of the ocean" How you could have mistaken 2nd & 3rd floor as being ground floor I don't know..... I can see you were obviously disappointed as becomes clear with the bizarre description of getting to the sandy deck area, you make it sound like you had to cross Walmart's parking lot ! ...lol... it is actually 55 steps and I have short legs Oh well I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time
