Panorama is a uniquely located ocean front Villa just a 2 minute drive from Cable Beach, Restaurants, & Shopping! Panorama was designed for those seeking the comfort of a major resort but desire that ultimate privacy and freedom that condo complexes or hotels DO NOT offer. Yes, feel free to let it all hangout at Panorama! Your group will occupy this beautiful ocean front villa which sits on a 1/4 acre private lot. The large private back yard extends from the contemporary living and dining area all the way to the warm turquoise Bahamian waters. Panorama sleeps up to 14 very comfortably and your group is welcomed to party, relax, and enjoy the adventurous rock scape, beautiful Lagoon which has limited access to the public, and nearby Delaporte beach (2-3 minute walk outside the property). The daily sunsets experienced at Panorama are absolutely breathtaking and it's extremely easy to snorkel for hours on end as the inviting reef behind Panorama extends for thousands of sq ft on the blue ocean floor. Also, if you're feeling lucky feel free to try your hand at a little fishing from the rocks:-). We invite you to entertain family, friends, and create memories at Panorama.

We celebrated a 40th birthday trip with friends. Tons of fun
Great getaway for a group!
We were a group of 9 and had plenty of space for everyone to sleep. The house has some seriously incredible views and it's own lagoon. While 98% of the time, it was just us in the lagoon, a few locals might stop in and go fishing/snorkeling from there. Still, it was pretty private and beautiful.
Take snorkeling gear or goggles with you! You can easily snorkel from the back yard! Grocery and liquor stores are about a 15 min walk, or a 2 min bus ride (costs $1.50 each way).
The entire crew (Errol, Dannon, and Dario) were all super nice and helpful. Any questions or concerns were addressed in a matter of minutes. Definitely would come back and stay again!!
"Living Your Best Life"
Our stay was an experience of a lifetime. We definetely lived our best life at this house!
The house is spacious, clean and the views are absolutely breathe taking. Errol and his team were very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. Bring snorkel gear! You'll be out in the ocean for hours exploring the local marine life!
Hi Lisa! It was great hosting your group and we are very happy that your friend Casey Enjoyed her birthday weekend. Cant wait to host you all again in the near future. Warm regards from Dannon and Errol!
Look No Further!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS HOUSE
First of all, this is the most amazing house right on the beach with a private heated pool and private beach! The area is safe! We walked to the grocery store and caught the bus into town several times with no problems at all and super cheap. The house was clean and fully equipped with everything you need.
Atlantis is only 15 minutes away, downtown was only 10 minutes away and the bus ride was so much fun! The locals know how to have a good time :) All of the surrounding restaurants were affordable and fantastic ambiance. I was greeted at the airport with the sweetest guys ever and had the best bachelorette party anyone could ask for. They were very accommodating and provided us with anything we needed from transportation to groceries. I will be back again very soon! I look forward to booking this incredible villa again.
The pictures do not do it justice so if you are hesitant in book this villa don't be!! Look no further!!!
Even though I was on vacation during your stay at Panorama I received constant messages from Dannon and Dario in regards to how great and pleasant your group was!:-). I am happy that you enjoyed my property and look forward to hosting you again!
Warm regards! Errol
Excellent ocean front property
Our stay was so nice to decompress and recharge. Our host was fantastic, he responded quickly to all our needs and requests. The property has backyard lagoon and vast open ocean and coral reef. Its total private ocean view and pool with jets. Master bedroom view is breathtaking. There is no beach in the backyard, however there is beach in 1/4 mile.
Hi Mr Gali, It was great hosting your family at Panorama and we look forward to hosting you all in the near future!
Could have been a four star, but...
We chose to rent Panorama because it was was listed (multiple times) in its description as being private, and having a private lagoon. When you arrive it looks that way too. There is barbed wire, a large gate, and the back yard is walled off. Then while we were out relaxing, the kids getting ready to snorkel some more, strangers started to hop over the wall to go to the "private lagoon". I contacted the owner and he told me that the lagoon is a public space (even thought it was listed as private and the only way to get to it is to climb the wall and go through our yard). He spoke to the neighbors and said they wouldn't do that while we were staying there, but several time we went out we would return to different (assumed) locals in our "private", rented space. That deception lost it one star right off the bat.
Now in no particular order here are the other issues we had to deal with on our vacation. The alarm system malfunctioned, and went off at 3:20 AM, 4:20 AM, and 5:20AM. The refrigerator stopped working in the middle of the night and it's alarm went off continuously until we unplugged it. The house lost power many times over our stay ranging from minutes to hours. One of the blankets had mites in it. There was a used tampon left under a bathroom sink. A cockroach fell on my sister while she showered. All of these things happened on various days spread over our 6 night stay. The fact that we noticed and celebrated a day in the middle of our trip where we didn't have to call the owner with a problem, sums up the essence of the stay. Towards the end we stopped contacting the owner over things that couldn't be addressed, choosing to try to make the most of our stay.
The only reason I am giving this place a two star instead of one is because the owner was very kind, and attentive to our problems. When we contacted him, he responded rapidly, having technicians come to the house or replacing the refrigerator the next day. For another family maybe Panorama will be a five star (it has the potential, especially if they remove all of the "private" talk in the description), but for us it was a bust.
Hi Caitlin, thanks for your review as we take the comments and suggestions of all of our guests very seriously as they help to improve our overall product. Firstly, all beaches in the Bahamas are indeed public, including the Lagoon/Mini beach at the rear of Panorama however what gives the lagoon a great deal of privacy/exclusivity is the fact that it's bordered by Panorama and the easiest access to it is by way of walking through the property as the neighbors did on the day in question. Even though the Lagoon is a public space you are probably more likely to see dolphins swimming along the coast line than seeing another human being there because of the limited access to it. The Delaporte community is a very friendly and closely knitted one which is why we allow the neighbors to access the Lagoon by way of Panorama but ONLY "when the home is vacant". The older gentlemen and his two sisters simply did not realize Panorama was occupied & also forgot their water coolers at the lagoon which explains why they returned briefly on another day to retrieve them. They humbly apologized for using Panorama as a transient point and made a commitment to not let it happen again while the Villa is occupied.
The other matters were all very rare & unpredictable however they were all addressed immediately. The alarm system was promptly fixed, Island wide power outages remedied with the portable generator & brand new fridge purchased for our use. In regards to the roach encounter, our guests do leave the french doors open and this sometimes invites insects into the Villa. However our exterminator treats the Villa bi-annually to combat them. The blanket in question was supposed to be disposed of because it was worn however it was mistakenly placed back in the linen closet by one of the housekeepers. We upgrade our linen very frequently and never had a complaint of mites before. The used tampon that you claimed to have found is very strange as it wasn't there during your check in as confirmed by Dario (property/activities manager). We take cleanliness very seriously & Dario conducted a thorough inspection of the entire home prior to your check in. Your family also expressed to be having a great time in person so I'm a little unsure why those good times were not expressed in your review to add a little balance to the equation. Nonetheless the negatives are still appreciated as they encourage us to make improvements. We would love to host you all again in the near future!
Panorama is located on a very unique oceanfront plot within Delaporte, Western New Providence adjacent to Cable Beach. The worlds most beautiful sunsets and adventurous snorkeling expeditions can be experienced at the rear of Panaroma.
