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.

GOOD VALUE FOR OUR MONEY - CAN RECOMMEND

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is simple but pleasant.It was clean.It has Wifi which we really liked.We rented a car on the second day and found getting around on the island easy. Carla was very nice and helpful and had arranged for a pickup from the airport.She even gave us a cell phone in case we got ourselves lost! There is not much to do in the immediate neighborhood but with the rental car we were really able to explore everything and get to where we needed to be.Access to great beaches ( cabbage and jaws were our favored) is free and easy. We feel that we got a taste of the real Bahamas and its people( who are very friendly and helpful). We also felt that we got a good deal and can recommend this place and Carla and TJ.
