PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
I had researched many homes and condos in Nassau, but from the moment I walked thru the doors of Paula's condo, I knew I had made the right decision. It was clean, beautifully furnished, travertine floors inside and out, equipped with everything you could possibly need. And that view! There is nothing like the waters of the Bahamas. We usually had the beach to ourselves except for one day when they were celebrating their Independence day and it was a little more crowded. The Poop Deck is conveniently located at the beach so drinks and lunch were accessible. We also had dinner there one night...expensive...but who cares, you're on vacation!

We spent one day at Blue Lagoon Island swimming with dolphins and enjoying their beach, which was also pretty exquisite. But for the most part, our days were spent close to home because we loved the pool and beach.

Our last night we went to the Fish Fry which everyone had been recommending and found that it was packed with locals... always a good sign that the food is good.

Barbara, the property manager was great. She had referred her friend , Ingrid and Joe to drive us around when needed. The Bahamian people are the happiest and nicest people I have ever encountered. They go out of their way to help and accommodate you, even when there is nothing in it for them.

Thank you Paula, for sharing your little slice of Paradise with us. I can't wait to return.

AMAZING FAMILY VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
Blue Reef is everything you'd expect and more! I stayed for a week with my parents, husband and our 3 young kids. The property was well-maintained and clean. Having 3 kids ages 3 and younger I am a clean freak, to say the least, and I was totally comfortable in Blue Reef. The patio over looking the ocean was amazing. We ate lunch and dinner out there everyday, actually we usually had breakfast outside too. It was so comfortable.

As mentioned in other reviews the jitney (small bus - my kids loved it) stops right outside the gates. We took it almost daily, visited the Ardastra Gardens (small zoo, highly recommended), Junkanoo Beach, Straw Market and Atlantis. The pools and the beach at the townhouse complex were great too. We spent a fair amount of time at the 'kids pool' it had a shaded area and some shallow steps, great for learners.

If I had to have one complaint it would be the lack of sidewalks. Outside of the complex there were no sidewalks at all, making it very dangerous to walk anywhere from Delaport Point (where Blue Reef is). The are plenty of restaurants, beaches and shopping within walking distance, but it felt too unsafe to walk there. I would have liked to be able to take the kids for a walk in the stroller.

I would recommend this property to anyone. As stated in the listing it is close enough to everything, yet far enough away to be relaxing. I hope to return in the near future. My kids had such a great time I can't wait to take them back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a positive review -- the west facing patio is a definite plus and so glad that my guests take advantage of it! You're right, most of the island does lack sidewalks, so it does make things tricky especially with strollers. We use the centre grassy island when to walk until we get to the sidewalks -- it's safer that the narrow margins on the sides.

Would be a pleasure to welcome you back to Blue Reef.

PRETTIER AND NICER THAN THE PICTURES!

  • 5 of 5
Blue Reef townhome was beautiful, clean and perfectly situated near restaurants, beaches, the grocery store and more! Only a 20 minute drive into Nassau which was fun for a day, but full of cruise ship tourists. On most days, we were almost the only people on the small nearby beach. Very quiet and secluded feeling even though it was close to everything. Paula and Paula's on-site property manager, Barbara, were extremely helpful and responsive both before and during our stay. The front balcony was the perfect place for several spectacular sunsets and the ocean waves lulled us to sleep every night. The condo was perfectly stocked with everything that we needed. Beautiful furniture, nice TV's with good internet service (which was a must for our teenagers!), a blender for smoothies in the morning and more. We have stayed in several VRBO's and this one was probably the best experience of all!

Owner's Response: Dear Mary,

Thank you so much for such an outstanding review. So happy that you had a great vacation and your teenagers were happy! Nassau can be busy when the ships are in, but one of the reasons we love Delaporte is because it's not far from anything, yet still as you say, quiet and relaxing. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back again.

QUIET LOCATION IN NASSAU

  • 5 of 5
Paula and Barbara were both very helpful in arranging our stay at Blue Reef. It should be noted that all Delaporte (the development where the house is located) is not the same. Delaporte has been developed over the last 40 or so years. Blue Reef is in the newest part of the development and it shows. Blue Reef is in very good condition, well maintained and clean. I am not sure I would want to stay in some of the older units. They looked like they needed some work. There is excellent cable TV with internet hooks up to Netflix. There are 3 flat screen TVs. The pools and beach were nice. I wish they had a hot tub. The water was a little cold while we were there.
Deleport does have several places to eat within walking distance which other reviews have mentioned. Deleport is almost too quite. We were there with our only child (6) and she definitely needed a little more action. Fortunately, we were going to Atlantis after our stay at Deleport. Barbara will provide large water tanks for about $5. Over all we loved our stay at Blue Reef.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY WITH KIDS!

  • 5 of 5
Blue Reef at Delaporte Point was a great place for our family vacation. The townhouse was clean, very spacious and nicely decorated, and had an amazing terrace overlooking the ocean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for ourselves, as we didn't want to spend all of our time in restaurants. (Food is quite expensive in the Bahamas!) We travelled with my mother-in-law, who was happy to have the top floor to herself, away from the mess and craziness of our kids.

The townhouse is a mere two minute walk to the beach on the other side of the complex. Our kids really appreciated the beach toys stored at the house, as we didn't want to haul all of that stuff with us on the plane. Right next to the beach is a restaurant that will bring food and drinks right to the beach, or even set up tables for an oceanside dinner if you give them notice! The weather was a bit cold for us to use the pools, but we braved them anyway. The ocean was warmer, and more fun!

We also rented a minivan from Barbara, which was inexpensive and a great way to get around. Our tourist highlights: the fish fry, the pirate museum, the zoo and the Retreat Garden National Park (where we swung from vines, Tarzan-style). But our favourite thing to do was look for stingrays under the bridge at the local beach, or just hang out by the water building sandcastles while the adults enjoyed a drink from the bar, delivered to our loungers!

We chose the Bahamas for our vacation because it was close, and because there is a January half and full marathon. For anyone wishing to book a running vacation, it's a good choice, although the weather is not guaranteed to be hot. For running, the weather was perfect, and the race was well-organized.

STUNNING PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We just recently stayed at Paula's place at Delaporte Point, it was lovely! The pictures are extremely accurate and for a person who only likes four and five star hotels, it lived up to my standards. It was plenty of room for my husband and I and our four children. The location was great, as we were not overly interested in Paradise Island, although it was only a 20 minute ride to Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island. We rented the car from Barbara, who was very helpful and friendly, we just found that more convenient. The restaurants Paula recommended were great, when we veered away from those, we suffered somewhat! The two pools in the complex were great, patio and view were amazing! All in all, well worth the money and we would certainly consider staying there again. Thanks, Paula and Barbara!

'Blue Reef' - a beautiful townhouse located within the private gated community of Delaporte Point. A quiet and beautiful setting with magnificent east and west views, two pools, a beach and a reef at your doorstep, Delaporte Point is a unique location as it offers a romantic setting as well as an ideal location for families. It is centrally located toward the north western part of the island and has the perfect mix of residences, restaurants and shops.

Guests can take advantage of the calm retreat it offers, or explore other beaches and activities close by. You can choose to spend a few hours shopping in downtown Nassau with a variety of duty free shops and the beautiful straw/basket market or enjoy the activities of the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, always returning to the calm retreat of Delaporte Point.

All the beaches on the island offer fine white or pink sand and the water is the real attraction -- clear as glass with gorgeous colours of blue and green.
