Bugs, Lizzards and Dust

  • 1 of 5
I experienced an awful stay at rental property #220049. The air conditioner leaked and the apartment had a strong, musty odor. On day one of an eight day stay, there were bugs, both alive and dead, lizzards and millipedes present on a daily basis. When the living conditions were brought to the owners attention on day two, I was told that an exterminator had been there a few weeks prior and to use the bug spray provided. The owner did not contact me at all from this point to check to see if everything was ok. There was dust and dead bugs under neat the furniture as well as dust on the nightstands and headboards. There was only one sheet set on the bed, two bath, beach and wash cloths provided. I started calling other hotels on the island from day three through the duration of my stay, but was unsuccessful in finding somewhere else to stay due to Nassau's Independence celebration going on all week and every place was booked solid. I feel that I was inconvenienced and treated very unfair during my stay. Due to my experience during my stay, I will not be returning to this apartment rental property ever and would not recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the guest felt the need to post a negative review, but I hope that future guests will consider all reviews when deciding to visit Nassau Escape.
Firstly, let me preface my response by saying that the guest checked-out without paying her balance & was offended when I insisted that payment be made prior to her leaving the island. This I suppose is the reason for this malicious attack. The payment was made 11 days later!
On the day of check-in the guest’s Bahamian friend (who had previously viewed the apartment) called to ask to check-in early. I informed him that the previous guests reported a leaking air-conditioning unit in one bedroom when they checked-out less than an hour before. I told him that they could check-in 2 hours early, but it’s unlikely that I would find a repairman on a Sunday. (A fact that I’m certain the Bahamian friend is aware of). I informed him that I would try, but definitely would have someone come out on Monday if I was unsuccessful. The guest decided to run both a/c units, which resulted in the leak on the carpeting. (The previous guests had used a bucket so the carpet was dry and there was no odor).
Contrary to the guest’s assertion that she informed me unacceptable “living conditions” on day two, this is untrue. The guest was given the use of a local cell phone, with $5 of prepaid minutes, and was asked to contact me with any questions or concerns…I never heard from her. When I returned with the repairman to fix the a/c unit on day 2, she complained of seeing “an insect”. I apologised for the situation and advised that the apartment was recently exterminated because in tropical climates there are a lot of bugs during the rainy season.
She complained that the a/c leak caused an odor. I paid to have the carpet cleaned, the man came the next day. the guest complained to the carpet-cleaner about millipedes on the walls outside, but she never mentioned lizards nor her “living conditions”. Also, this is the first time I am hearing about dust.
Not sure what the problem was with regard to linens; the apartment was adequately stocked and there is a washer and dryer on site for the convenience of guests.
I’m not sure how any of this was “unfair” treatment; nor why the guest feels she was inconvenienced. I am sorry whenever any guest leaves disappointed with any aspect of their Bahamas Vacation; although I’m not sure how I could have done anything differently to address her concerns.

As described

  • 4 of 5
Carla and her husband are very good hosts and the property is just as described. We were comfortable being away from the crowds in the tourist areas. Being the only white people in the neighbourhood was not a problem, the buses were a fun experience and for us reliable and the mobile provided was a great asset. The taxi driver Carla recommends is a very nice man and we felt safe and comfortable with him driving. We only stayed 3 days so did not need a car but for longer stays a car would be beneficial.

The true bahamian living experience

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Carla's place for just a couple of nights. Carla was kind enough to pick and drop us at the airport for just a small fee (way cheaper than any shuttle or taxi) and so everything went smooth. The has everything you will need for either short or extended stays plus the kitchen is very well equipped. The wi-fi wasn't working during our stay but I believe it was a temporary issue. It is located on a nice residential neighborhood just out of town where you'll get the true bahamian living experience. There's not much things to see at a walking distance but you can take bus 14/14a to downtown and enjoy some sightseeing on the trip. This is the most value for the price you will get in The Bahamas.

Excellent hosts, reasonable lodging

  • 4 of 5
Although the area is far from the city core, the house itself was certainly adequate, given our needs: ability to cook our own food, affordability, being removed from hotel tourists, and experiencing the culture. Carla met us promptly at the airport and transported us cheerfully and efficiently, providing us with a cell phone to use that she always answered for any purpose. Her husband had us back to the airport for our departure despite his busy schedule with no complaints at all. The house is well-appointed with all amenities listed, and photos depict it exactly. Great decorating!

The only caveat is that we would strongly suggest that guests rent a car. Although the Jitney busses are a great experience and are SO inexpensive ($1.25 each way), they are unreliable (ours broke down when the radiator blew and we weren't sure where to go!) and their routes can change without notice, so you really need to have good spatial intelligence to know your surroundings! We were the sole white people in the district that we ever saw, but felt very safe and welcomed by locals who even pulled over to make sure we weren't lost. One lovely young woman drove us to a grocery store, waited while we shopped, and drove us home! Others provided us with touring advice to keep us away from the cruise ship throngs, and we had a great day at Junkanoo Beach on Good Friday with many Bahamian families. We LOVE the people and actually felt safer and more comfortable with them in Carla's neighbourhood than on the downtown "strip" with the drunken tourists.

Just the same, it was recommended to us that we not venture out after dark downtown (I'd say the same for my Canadian city, however!) and without a car, taxis are a must, since the busses stop running at 6:30 PM. Cab fare is about $30-40 to Carla's from downtown.

Great deal, friendly service

  • 4 of 5
Carla is very friendly and helpful, even taking me to the grocery store which was over and beyond in service and very much appreciated! The apartment is clean and the Wireless internet was exactly what I needed for my stay. The price for a two bedroom can't be beat and there is a bus service that goes quite close to the apartment that can take you where you need to go if you don't want to rent a car...I didn't really go anywhere as I was visiting for some quiet time to work on a project so I can't say much about the island itself. The apartment had everything needed to cook in, so there is no need to go out unless you want to.

A few things beyond anyone's control that was a bit bothersome were loud animal noises in the night (I think it was a bird but not sure, along with cats) and the neighbors had what seemed to be a few fights while I was there - they were very loud at times. Despite that, I managed to finish my project and really appreciated the privacy of staying in Nassau at a good rate and especially thank Carla for the great service, including the ride to and from the airport.
