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,

Julie

SHANGRI LA INDEED

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful week at Shangri La. Stayed a week but wish we were still there. House was perfect for our group of eight. Kids spent most of their waking hours in the pool. House had everything we needed including a lady who cleaned and pool service. It was indeed a trip that we'll remember for the rest of our lives.

PERFECT BEACH HOUSE! WILL BE BACK!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Shangri La a couple weeks ago and it was amazing! House is everything you see in the pictures and more. Looking out the windows all you see is blue water, the pool and patio furniture provided a great place to relax.

The property managers are very responsive and helped out with a ton of our planning - I would definitely recommend doing a catered dinner at the house!

Everything worked great, easy to get taxis, easy walk down the beach to casino, can rent jet skis from right down the beach, the television room (movie theater style!) was great, full office to get some work done if you need to... Feel like so many good things hard to even keep track of them all.

I will 100% recommend this house to friends and would stay here again on my next trip.

BACHELORETTE WEEKEND IN PARADISE - ONLY REGRET IS NOT STAYING LONGER!

  • 5 of 5
My girl friends and I just returned from a weekend at Shangri-La and have already spoken with the owner about renting the property again next year - it's THAT great!

The house really is even better than the pictures and it is very well appointed. You feel like royalty the moment you step inside. The house is well stocked with the sort of things you don't want to have to think about picking up on your way in from the airport (e.g., toilet paper, coffee filters). In addition to sending us a wealth of information before our trip, the owners also have a HUGE binder full of information on anything and everything you could possibly think to do, experience or need during your stay.

The main house is laid out exceptionally well such that there are water views from almost every room (with the exception of one bedroom) and each bedroom has it's own bath. Unfortunately for our group, only 7 of the 11 of us who were supposed to be there actually made it (thanks to Winter Storm Rex causing flight cancellations across the mid-Atlantic), so we had PLENTY of room. I think we still would have been very comfortable had everyone been able to make it - we didn't even set foot in the guest house after our initial tour!

The kitchen is fantastic for groups wanting to cook together. And the dining room is superb. We also loved watching Olympics coverage in the theater room!

The outdoor space is amazing - words can't describe it! We hardly left the house because we so enjoyed lounging by the pool, having meals at the large table out back and walking along the beautiful (and very calm) beach).

The on-site property manager, Kyla, was lovely! She gave us a very thorough introduction to the house and made herself available for anything we needed (we didn't need a thing though!).

We did note a couple minor things that we hope will be changed next time we stay at Shangri-La:
(1) The master bedroom balcony door was missing a screened door. Not a big deal in and of itself, but because we wanted to hear the ocean roaring at night, we slept with the door open and ended up being an all-night buffet for mosquitoes. Should be an easy fix.
(2) We could only get one of the burners on the outdoor grill going. Could have been user error but we were really looking forward to grilling out. A new grill would be a nice addition!
(3) In spite of trying to space out our showers, it seemed there was never enough hot water. Not a huge deal since it was warm outside, but noticeable.

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Our time in Nassau was great. But staying at Shangri La was truly amazing! The house exceeded our expectations. It was the perfect place to relax and spend time with friends. Everyone kept commenting on how perfect the house was for our group. Sue gave us recommendations for anything you could ever want to do with your group during our stay. With her help we had a great experience with our snorkel guide (private boat just for our group) and the chef we had come to the house for our last night. The taxi drivers were very welcoming and helpful during our stay as well, we felt extremely safe. We truly had an amazing time, fantastic memories and can't wait to go back!

THIS IS AN EXQUISITE PROPERTY- THE PICS DONT ACCURATELY DEPICT ITS BEAUTY AND CHARM!!

  • 5 of 5
We had the time of our lives at the Shangri La. The consensus is that this was one of the best if not the best vacation my family has ever taken. We were thoroughly impressed with the property and loved the views of the beach especially the sunsets. The decor and furnishings were all perfect. We had everything we needed to store and prepare meals. We shopped at Super Value and made a few trips returning over bought items and replacing them with needed items. I'm glad they were accommodating because we made a few calculation errors. It was really nice to eat together under the ample spaced veranda by the pool over looking the beach. It was the highlight of the trip.
We enjoyed the property so much that we spent most of our time there opting NOT to explore the island as much as we planned because no one wanted to leave. We were content just lounging around and relaxing. We also loved the surround sound "throughout the house" including out on the veranda and pool area. That is a great amenity and should be added to the amenities list. My iPod is full of a great variety of music from jazz to hip hop so I plugged it in and everyone was satisfied and appreciated the variety. (Bring your loaded iPod/iPhone)
The few times we ventured out we visited The Fish Fry (twice, Twin Bros and oh Andros both were delectable), the hot and steamy Straw Market (an unusual experience and sometimes annoying with all the attempts to get you to buy from "my shop" but we made great deals), The Atlantis (aquarium, casino, shops, and we even caught a comedy show), we jet-skied, and some visited the public beach down the way for variety.

The only thing that could use improvement would be to the furnishings in the guest cottage bedrooms. They need to be upgraded a bit but its no big deal- the beds worked for sleeping but compared to the main house bedrooms these have subpar furnishings. The full size bed was ok! and the top bunk bed mattress was way to high for a child to sleep on as the mattress is above the railing. We didn't use it so it worked for us but if you are counting it as a sleeping space be aware. They may replace mattress so that its not as high in the future but this trip is was too high for use and unsafe for child to sleep on. These are minor downsides to the property and almost too petty to mention but I think its helpful especially if you plan to use the bed.

If you rent this house you won't be disappointed!!

TRULY.....THE REAL SHANGRI-LA

  • 5 of 5
The listing was very accurate to the property description and its many amenities. The photos of the property, provided only a snapshot view of the spaciousness and décor of this fantastic listing and the property was well maintained. All things were in good working order, clean and ready for a large group use.
The owners, agents, et. al. were prompt, helpful and descriptive to any prior questions our group asked. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this spectacular property to anyone who is planning a trip to Nassau. Words can't describe the morning/evening views while sitting on the veranda just relaxing with family and friends and enjoying an adult beverage.
We do recommend para-sailing, snorkeling and Power Boat Adventures----all well done and fun for all ages. Last, we catered our meals with a fantastic lady who provided a true flavor of the local Bahamian dishes along with her impeccable services and delicious foods/desserts.
This was truly a wonderful experience for our entire family ranging in ages from 8 years old to 73 years old and the only downside is, we wished we could have stayed for a month.
