Nassau & Paradise Island Apartment Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4
This gated community and villas property is a tranquil getaway spot where you can wake up to the cool island breeze and the sound of birds chirping. A large swimming pool is just downstairs and if you require an even more breath taking view, you can walk to the beach in 10 minutes, see the sunrise and feed the seagulls.
This cozy one bedroom unit comes equipped with all furnishings, kitchen, laundry facilities, TV, internet access and phone system with free calls to Europe and north America.
Everything worth while is either within close walking distance (the beach, shopping malls, restaurants, banks, grocery stores) or within a short ride (The Atlantis Resort & Paradise Island, Downtown Shopping, Art Galleries, night life and larger malls and movie theaters). Paradise awaits!
My first visit to Nassau, Bahamas was quite an experience. Eager to get out on the water my first day there, I had scheduled various boating excursions prior to arriving to Nassau. Despite cancellations of my pre-paid excursions (due to it being off-season), Bridgette, with Tangerine Sunsets (at Montagu Villas) went beyond the call of duty to try and find similar activities that week, calling me in the evenings with her updates, and to ask how my day went. She did recommend walking down to the Ferry Terminal on Paradise Island (immediately off the Exit Bridge) and getting there early to see if there were any openings for day trips to the out-islands. I did manage to get the last seat on a speed boat to Exuma. Excellent! First day back at the villas, my room was clean and equipped with a kitchen with pots, pans, and dishes, etc. so I was able to prepare breakfast and dinner daily while enjoying lunch on the town. Montagu Villas is protected within a gated community, is on the bus line, and is about a 15 minute walk to the Montagu Bay beach or 50-60 minute walk to downtown. The air conditioner in the bedroom worked well as did the two ceiling fans and there was plenty of hot water in the shower. The only recommendation for improvement would be to add dish towels and measuring cups in the kitchen and brochures of activities in the sitting room. Recommended restaurant and activities: "Oh Andros" (Fish Fry-near the zoo, #10 bus or 15 minute walk from downtown), Athena Cafe (Greek-downtown, eat outside), Graycliffe Chocolate Shop - the "Interactive" chocolate making class-1 hour, and Islandz.com 2 hour tour called "Monuments and Memories" with Maria Lee. Relish a quiet beach at Goodman's Bay where locals go (west side of island, west of the Fish Fry) or the noisier-crowded-very touristy-MTV crowd but beautiful long beach at Cabbage Beach (on Paradise Island). All in all, for my first visit to Nassau, my stay at Tangerine Sunsets was a sigh of relief. Travelling solo, I knew I was in good hands and am glad I choose Tangerine Sunsets. February 2013.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you had a great time Renee. Our main goal is to make sure our guests have a fantastic time on their vacation with us in The Bahamas. It's always a pleasure when guests confirm we're on the right track ;) You were also the perfect guest to have, respectful of our home, very comunicative if you had any questions and an overall joy. Our doors are always open to you whenever you are in our neck of the woods again!
I've stayed in this apartment the 2nd week of my vacation. It was a bit smaller than the fairchild villa but still i was very comfortable and really enjoyed my stay! The People in this gated unit are very nice.I would def. go back there as well! thank you for everything!
we arrived to no water the first day, the second day the electricity went off. the apartment below us was ransacked the next day.the fourth night the airconditioner started making so much noise we had to turn it off. a call to the named person on the information provided on sat morning did nothing so we called the agent who said he would try on monday he called bact to say he would call us as he had a repair man lined up. no one showed up. luckly it turned cool and the place cooled down. without the ac to drown the other tennants noise down it was tough to sleep. two of the four burner stove diud not work. the apt was very clean and the pool was very nice. not easy to find the first night.

Owner's Response: My goodness, my first less than steller review.... and I can really empathize with this guest, they were good people. Our properties, including this one always receive very good reviews and these were good guests, but Murphy's Law came into play during their stay. Everything that could go wrong, did, and while it was out of our hands to do anything about it, it doesn't change the fact that the guest's stay was adversely impacted by these events.
e.g ( The entire gated community is on the same water system and the massive water pump died that afternoon and a new one was ordered, it was off for hours, but we're talking 50 apt units here, so it was repaired as quickly as it could be. Next day, the entire neighborhood lost electricity for a few hours, again Bahamas Electricity Corp doing work in the area, just out of our hands to control, but also not something that you expect). I also booked the appt with the a/c company, they promised they would show, but didn't and guest checked out the next day.
I'm genuinely sorry this guest had a bad experience. The current guest is having a fabulous time and have mentioned the same to me a few times. I would really like another opportunity to provide the type of experience we are known for at Tangerine Sunsets. So, if you're in The Bahamas again, please contact me, I'd even provide a free night's stay as our way of saying we want nothing more than to know you're having a great time at our villas. Take care.
I had an amazing time in Nassau.The rental was really clean and cozy, located in a very private gated location in the Bahamas not far from town. The unit had all of your basic needs, supplied by the owner towels, cooking utensils etc.. It was a pleasure interacting with the owner, especially going out of his way to make sure all of your needs were met, thank you for a memorable time
The perfect home. The owner really fulfilled with everything offered. Highly Recommended! Bahamas also beautiful. Without a doubt we would return. One recommendation would be to rent a car to beat the bus or taxis.
Very satisfied with the department and the Bahamas! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
