Amazing house and view

Am writing this review from the amazing patio that is directly on the ocean!
We travelled with our 2 children (4 and 2) and my mother.
The house is perfect: 2 balconies on the ocean, dream-like views, very clean, relaxed feel, everything we needed (playpen-beach toys), a bathroom off each bedroom, all the kitchen amenities.
it is away, but not too-far away, from the horrible hustle of Nassau.
The gated community is safe and friendly.
The beach is maybe 50 steps from the house, and we could go back to the house 20 times a day is needed (with children).
The supermarket is close by and suited our needs. There is a great family restaurant on the canal in the sandyport plaza 5 minutes on foot called Spritz's (burgers, pizza, pasta, etc)- cheaper than those close by.
The buses (jitneys) stop right outside the gate and are the best way to travel, very handy.
Things to know about the area:
1. the beach was not cleaned during our stay and so there were copious amounts of seaweed that we had to shovel away in order to find a place to sit. We ended up taking the jitney most days over to Saunders beach (10 minutes) where the beach is longer, cleaner, and there is a great park for little kids to play in. (As well, there seemed to be a microclimate over Delaport Point, it was cloudy almost everyday-unlucky?- but the rest of the island we could see in the distance was sunny, so we went elsewhere for some rays and had beautiful weather!)
2. if you are a walker-jogger, there is no real place to enjoy walks in the immediate area. The beach is maybe 200m long and the roads outside of the community have no sidewalks and are a little dodgy to walk on. Alternatives: a fitness club is a 2 minutes walk away and really great, and you can take the jitney to surrounding beaches closer to Nassau for more sidewalks, walkways, longer beaches.
3. The 2 pools are gorgeous and clean, but glacial, and much colder than the ocean (february)
We have rented houses around the world and would definitely recommend this one to friends!
The onwer was efficicient, reliable and great in answering questions by email ahead of time so we could plan.
