About Chad and Candice Roberts

Ragged Edge is owned by the Roberts family. Chad is a Bahamian born and bred native. He met his wife, Candice, when they were in their teens during a family cruise. The two were married in 1999 and blessed with a beautiful daughter in 2004. The family currently resides in New Kent, VA.

Chad and Candice Roberts purchased this house in 2008

Why Chad and Candice Roberts chose Nassau & Paradise Island

After our daughter was born we decided it was time to upgrade so we spent the next few years designing our dream home. Just as the plans were being sent out for bid, some friends of ours told us that we should go and take a look at this oceanfront home that has just dropped its asking price. Candice saw it once and it was our dream home already completed and on the water. We closed on it a few months later and have enjoyed every minute of it since.

What makes this house unique

From almost every room in Ragged Edge you can see the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A trip to Lake Travis (Austin, Tx) last year using HomeAway was a disaster!!! Imagine how excited we all were to see that your house is exactly like the online profile!!!



We had an awesome time!!!!! We went to Blue Lagoon island and swam with the dolphins. We went on a snorkeling trip and swam with sharks. We spent a day at the water park at Atlantis. We spent a day at cabbage beach. We had dinner at the Poop Deck the first night we were there and the weather and cuisine were very nice. My husband and son both got the red snapper and they didn't share. We went to Italian Dolce and met the owner. She was talking about how she does pizza on Sat. nights and we told her we'd be gone by then so she made them for us on Fri. night! And they were awesome) Last but not least, we had an awesome, delicious, and intimate dinner-all 6 of us- at Cafe Matisse. We were there for 2 1/2 hours as they were sooo busy. We met Greg and he actually bought a round after dinner because he said we had put up with a lot that night. We didn't really. Friday was the only day the ocean was calm. Several of us went snorkeling out back and it was awesome. We saw star fish, a few sting rays, and lots of cool fish. We all went swimming last Sat. and the people who stayed next door thought we were crazy. The water was very rough but we are all very good swimmers and had fun. Swam down to the beach.

Anyway, enough about what we did. We were all so happy the house was so awesome. It is in a quiet area and the day we went to Atlantis we were very aware of how much we enjoyed the quiet at your house. Your reference book was very helpful as we obviously followed much of the advice. We would be talking about where to go and my husband said "Well let's go somewhere in the book. It hasn't steered us wrong yet." Thank-you again for an awesome house that was exactly as it was pictured and had everything we could have possibly needed.

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5
Right from the beginning we knew we had chosen the right home to spend my 50th birthday week with my family. We had requested early check in as we cam in on the red-eye from Seattle. This request was accommodated & the island staff were fantastic in greeting us early, showing us all of the things we needed to know about the home.

Let me be very clear - this is the owners residence, not just a vacation rental property and it shows in the location, quality of furnishings, appliances, AV equipment, toys, etc. We felt right at home. We used the outdoor kitchen and margarita maker extensively :).

I would highly recommend Ragged Edge to anyone that is interested - this is the standard we will measure future vacation home rentals against.. I would suggest a couple of things that made live easier for us and or we would have liked to have. First - if you are comfortable driving on the left (its not hard) definitely rent a vehicle, it is worth the money. We had 6 people and rented a mini van. The home is at the eastern end of the island away from the tourist areas (great thing) & about a 10-15 min drive to the PI bridge. In hindsight, we would have hired a cook for a couple of dinners and maid service. My wife & I cooked most meals & she did laundry. The home is literally on the waters edge & we spent several days at Cabbage Beach which the whole family fell in love with. The beach several houses down is great. However it can be difficult at high tide so plan accordingly.

I have been going to the Bahamas for over 25 years. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had anywhere in the world and we were fortunate to spend it in a great home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are so happy that you all enjoyed our home so much. You are right, Ragged Edge was our actual home for 6 years, and we too loved it. Too bad you didn't mention to us about a cook and housekeeper because we could have definitely made some recommendations and arrangements for you. Next time.

Lovely home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
House is lovely set right on the ocean. So relaxing and nice. Our daughter got engaged in the backyard.
Only weird thing virtually no paper towels and little toilet paper.
We saved a fortune cooking at the house resulting in family meals that are more intimate than restaurant meals.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and congratulations to your daughter. Sorry for the mix-up with the paper towel and toilet paper. We have since amended our Pre-Arrival Guest Information to inform our guests exactly what is provided at the house so they can plan accordingly.

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND A WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week at beautiful Ragged Edge in March with my family (3 adults-2 children) and another week in May with friends (4 adults). The house is as advertized...beautiful, well appointed, spacious and well equipped. The property is situated in a quiet, colonial neighborhood on Eastern Road, yet very close to downtown Nassau; restaurants, beaches and Paradise Island Atlantis and casino (approx. 10-15 minutes by car). This is a great location to settle for a week if you want to explore the island.

The home is oceanfront (no beach), but you can easily swim and snorkel on a quiet day. The nicest beaches are Cabbage Beach and Goodman's Bay, near Cable Beach. I do not recommend Yamacraw beach (near the house) as it is dirty, isolated and not very appealing.

Chad and Candice are accommodating and shared plenty of the island secrets with us by email. There is also a nice binder at the house, complete with recommendations for everything regarding the house and the island in order to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible.

On more than a few occasions, we enjoyed nice breakfast and dinners on the terrace and the main dining room...it was a joy to get a break from restaurant food! There are two supermarkets nearby, Super Valu (closest) and Solomons (higher end on East Bay St) and both offer a wide selection of fresh fruits, vegetables and groceries...

One thing not to be missed are the fantastic lunches at Goodfellow Farms and the nearby trails and beaches at Clifton Heritage Park on the western end of the island.

As a family and group that likes to explore, mingle with locals and be autonomous, Ragged Edge beats an all inclusive resort and our two weeks were just perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at Ragged Edge. We are happy that you enjoyed our home during both stays. Sorry to hear about Yamacraw Beach. We will definitely let the representative for that area know about your concerns. Cabbage Beach is sublime though. Hope to have you at Ragged Edge yet again.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
The property was exactly as it is described by the owner. It's absolutely beautiful! Upon arriva, we rented a car and used the very detailed directions to get to the house. The home is spacious and well appointed. It's really like a "home", comfy furniture that's beautiful, great TVs, wonderful master suite, and gormet kitchen not to mention the gormet outdoor grill!! It suited out family perfectly. One day we spent shopping in Nassau, another day at the Atlantis (which was enough for us!), another day at Cabbage Beach, one day snorkeling behind the house!! The reefs are wonderful, beautiful fish, sting rays, and star fish are just a few of the sea life that we encountered. We will absolutely be back!! Thanks for sharing your home!

Beyond Beautiful & Exceeded Expectations

Beyond Beautiful & Exceeded Expectations
  • 5 of 5
Wow, wow, wow. We just spent a week at Ragged Edge - 4 adults and 4 kids under the age of 6. The house was a perfect match for us. Beyond beautiful & spacious, the house is a gem. Located away from the hustle & bustle, the home is very private in a very nice area but not right on the beach- you must rent a car to get to & from town and to the pristine beaches but it is worth it. We spent most of our days at Cabbage Beach which is a breathtaking spot & we highly recommend it. Some afternoons were spent at a more local beach with locals, only a walk away. One day at Atlantis which was perfectly enough. Went to the Straw Market to support local artisans on the one cloudy day of our seven day vacation. We loved our late afternoons on the expansive deck while the kids ran around the grounds of the house. We grilled almost every night using the outdoor kitchen (indoor kitchen is great too), and ate around any one of the three dining tables (one outdoor) which sat all 8 of us comfortably. Our days started & ended with the most amazing sunrises & sunsets. The movie collection must be noted - all genres for all ages….many, many, both old & new to choose from. If you are considering this home for your next vacation, please book. You will not regret it.

Owner's Response: Julie,

Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so glad everyone enjoyed their trip and stay at Ragged Edge. We hope you got a chance to visit the beach 30 seconds from our home. Beautiful clear sandy swimming water. Cabbage Beach is the best though, so glad you went there. We hope to have you back at Ragged Edge in the future.

Ragged Edge is located on the Eastern end of New Providence in a very quiet and scenic residential area surrounded by other luxurious homes. The ocean is right in your backyard where you will find many reefs for snorkeling. There are also a few beautiful beaches within swimming and walking distance from the house. There is also a local grocery store, liquor store and pharmacy within 1 to 2 miles.

It is a short ten minute drive to historic downtown Nassau for all your duty-free shopping needs, Paradise Island and the world famous Atlantis with its immersive water park and Dolphin Cay adventures. However, if a dolphin adventure is your 'thing' make sure and check out Dolphin Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island - you can also make it a day trip with a beach day add-on.

A comprehensive activity and guidebook is provided in the house as well as maps of the local area.
