Perfect villa! We are convinced we had the BEST view! We got fresh lobster tail from one of the local fish markets on our way 'home', while we were already in a cab exploring, and grilled them on the gas grill provided on the balcony. Everything in the unit was as shown and described. All the grounds were very clean and it seemed there was always maintenance and cleaning going on. Property was well lit and we felt safe. Security usually visible. We ate Viola's at LEAST once per day and had many drinks there. LOVED the pizza. The unit was stocked with LOTS of towels! We NEVER heard anyone else (neighbors) and it sometimes felt like we had it all to ourselves. We ordered groceries and they were waiting to put them away for us when we arrived. It was very convenient to have cold beverages, ice & fruit. Very easy to take a cab. Just a very short walk to Viola's (about 50 steps from the door to a bar stool) and a cab can be right there. Friendly staff at Viola's even called a cab for us on a few occasions, to visit Nassau. This service makes this villa even more valuable in our opinion. While visiting Atlantis, we were sitting in the casino somewhat chuckling, comparing the atmosphere, bustling crowds, long lines for all food options (we tried none at Atlantis, but lines may have been exaggerated due to hurricane Sandy), and we were VERY happy to know we were returning to Sunrise Beach Club. GREAT ACCOMMODATIONS, BEACH, FOOD, BAR, POOLS & PEOPLE. The internet and free long distance to U.S. was SUPER valuable! Can't wait to go back when we can really enjoy such a perfect villa, in a perfect place, without a "perfect storm"! We were there Oct. 21st-27th, and Hurricane Sandy took most of our trip, but we made the best of it. Having never been on an island in a hurricane before, it was troubling. There were crews cleaning up debris immediately! There was a malfunction of our door lock during the hurricane, but it was resolved VERY quickly. Now hopefully not too many people will read this and take all the slots for next year! Despite the weather, I would go back again and again to this unit! (Go to Khyla's Island Philosophy at Junkanoo beach, and tell her, "Stacy said, BEST GINGER SWITCHER EVER!", and you won't be disappointed! ;) Also, BIG 10, at the fish fry, has the best grouper we've ever had, and Deidra's at fish fry has awesome fish fritters if you don't like conch. So happy to have found this place, and plan to make it an annual tradition.
