Mackay purchased this house in 2010
We bought this property as we love the Bahamian lifestyle, climate and proximity to the sea. The house is designed for entertaining and relaxing both of which we love to do. Eventually, we plan to retire to our house and have lazy days by the pool and watch the breath taking sunsets and stargaze from our roof top hide away.
We love watching the activities on the sea and surrounding areas from our rooftop deck as well as relaxing on our outdoor terraces. Year round swimming in the pool and nearby sea are added benefits.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your families
This was our first experience in the Bahamas. As a large group of people mixed with single couples, and small families, we were concerned about choosing an all-inclusive which is why we searched for a rental property. We were excited to find a property that offered the amenities that Stargaze did. This place met the variety of needs of our entire group.
The bedrooms were spacious and the layout was very conducive to the mixed group. The eating area accommodated the group well enough, and the kitchen was fully stocked with all we needed and large enough to have 'many cooks' do their work.
The bathrooms were clean and functional. However, the water pressure was weak even when only running one of the showers at a time.
There were many common areas to relax, both inside and outside of the villa. The family room was cozy and provided enough room for our entire party to plan our day's events.
Overall, the place was very clean and cozy, and we would definitely return! The air conditioning system worked fabulously, and the fans helped to circulate the air. We wish the laundry worked a little better (could never get through a full load of laundry). We were told that the machines were too full, but even with a VERY small load, the machines weren't cooperating. This was only a problem, because we wanted to wash towels after a day by the pool. However, there were more than enough towels provided to not make this an issue.
The property managers Patrice and Angie were amazing! There were always available and answered any of our questions or concerns quickly. There was a huge rainstorm the first night we were there and a newly upgraded tile floor on the rooftop patio was leaking. A repairman was there that night, and returned the next morning to fix the issue. It never bothered us to begin with, but this showed the care the property was under. We never had any issues with this again.
The pool was clean and functional, and there were nice chairs provided (8).
The location was close to a very good conch stand, and a bus stop to get into town. It was a short walk from the property to both.
There is careful attention to safety which was a little scary - almost overdone - but at least careful measures were taken to ensure we never had any issues. However, our entire group found the property and the people to be unbelievably friendly, and never felt unsafe.
We hope to find ourselves at Stargaze in the future!
The villa is wonderful, from the colors to the design and how spacious it is. It has all the amenities one could ask for, it made our stay in the Bahamas a pleasant and relaxing one with peace of mind both staying at Stargaze and moving about on the island. The owners and care takers are welcoming and very helpful. Definitely going back and would recommend it to others
There were 3 adult couples and two children, 5&2, in our group. We all had plenty of room to find private spots and spread out, but there were great places to congregate as well, such as the living/dining area and pool. We spent many relaxing hours on the covered porch, enjoying the warm breezes and views of the ocean. The house is well equipped with amenities and necessities, such as dishes, utensils, blankets and towels, etc.
We liked that it was a little off Bay Street, but close to the bus stop and ocean. Our group enjoyed the beaches at Nirvana, and at the Traveller's Rest restaurant, where they had delicious fresh fish and live music.
The owners are very accommodating and responsive, and jumped in to help when we needed them.
We did feel that a vehicle would be recommended.
I must say this was by far one of the best vacation homes i've ever stayed in. From comfort to cleanliness, this paradise had it all. The Mackays were wonderful in helping my family and i get acclimated to the island by providing us with things to do, places to eat even down to public transportation. I would definitely recommend this place for a large group. We had about 6 ppl in our group and there was more than enough room for everyone. 5 star service all the way
We planned our trip to Nassau well in advance as a vacation extension for some of our team members who had just completed an intensive athletic training camp in Florida. After a hard week of work in Florida, we wanted a place to relax that included everything and had lots of room for our group. Stargaze Villa exceeded our expectations from the moment we arrived at the airport and were picked up by our taxi driver as arranged by the owner. We were then greeted at the Villa and given a tour and explanation of all the household systems including the pool, TV, internet, security, etc.
Using the detailed Welcome Package provided by the owner in advance of our trip, we knew exactly where we wanted to go for shopping, dining, and entertainment. But we didn't expect the Villa to be as big, roomy, and clean as it was, and that it would have all the amenities to make us feel right at home. We were able to settle in right away and enjoy the Bahamas in our home away from home. We often ate our dinner out on the 2nd floor shaded deck just outside the large kitchen.
The area surrounding the Villa was very quiet and felt very safe. We took many walks in the local neighborhood and residents were very friendly and helpful to us. The ocean and beach are just a few minutes walk away and we took many early morning walks along the water's edge with our cameras to take pictures of the water, birds, and shoreline. It was not at all crowded anywhere we went.
We took local transit regularly into town and back (very inexpensive), with the bus stop being very close to our Villa. As a result, we had no need to rent a car. Grocery shopping was easy as a large grocery store was right on the main bus line not too far from our Villa.
The best part was chilling out with friends either inside the Villa in the very large common room, or out on the pool deck in the private pool under the coconut trees. The Villa, pool, and property were very clean and maintained well. It also had backup power, a large propane tank, and water reserves in case and community services failed (which didn't during our stay).
I would highly recommend Stargaze Villa to anyone looking for great value in their vacation to the Bahamas. We will now be returning to the Villa each year after our training camp and look forward to planning the next trip. The Villa owner was very helpful in answering questions and welcoming us, and went above and beyond to ensure we would have a relaxing vacation.
My family and I stayed at the Stargaze Villa in Feb 2013. There were eight adults in total and plenty of room for all of us. The house comes fully equipped with all the essentials, including towels, linens, toilet paper and even propane for the BBQ. The location of the villa was great. It's about a five minute drive from the airport and a five minute walk to the beach and bus stop where you can hop on the #10 bus to Nassau for $1.25 US per person (~25 minute drive). There are several supermarkets and liquor stores accessible via the #10 bus which runs until about 6pm. Therefore, we tended to go out and about during the day and spent our evenings in the villa as cabs are pretty expensive to get around. The upper deck was our go-to spot in the evenings for just hanging out. The locals in Gambier Village were very welcoming and friendly; it was great to be close to the local culture and away from the touristy areas. We were the only people on Love Beach! The Stargaze owners conveniently arranged our transportation to and from the airport and our driver Henry was prompt and accommodating; he stopped at a liquor store on the way in for us and stopped at the local school on the way out so we could leave behind some donations (e.g. clothes, school supplies, etc – highly recommend this!). It was great to have our own private pool and the slide was a lot of fun too. The pool isn't heated so the water was chilly especially since we had cooler weather the first couple days but it didn't stop us from enjoying it nonetheless. I would stay here again if travelling with a group of people.
