Overview

Nassau & Paradise Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Very Spacious 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Unit.

Master Bedroom with Master Bathroom has a King Size Bed. 2nd Bedroom also has a King Size Bed also. Each of the Bedrooms and the Living Room all have views of Nassau Harbour. This unit can sleep 4 adults, or as many as 6 - but the added 2 persons would sleep on a cushioned floor mat.

This is a fully equipped condominium. Just bring your clothes as we provide everything else necessary to make your stay comfortable.

We have high speed wireless internet access, and we provide a laptop for your use while here. While the unit itself has a phone for making local calls, we also provide you with a cell phone for local use for your ease. You can purchase additional minutes should you need it.

The property is a secured location and has 24 hour security. Enjoy the pool, or better still the beaches that are close by. There are many restaurants within within a 5 minute walk, or if you prefer try hanging out at Potters Cay for some local culture, happy hour and Conch Salad (a must).

Paradise Island, and the World Famous Atlantis Hotel is a 15 minute walk away, and just over the Bridge. There is much to see there, and you can even enjoy the facilities during the day. Daily passes are available at Atlantis.

The Atlantis Hotel sits on Nassau's finest beach, Cabbage Beach. So if you choose to do the beach instead, that's all up to you. A Ferry to Downtown Nassau is accessible from Paradise Island.

About Timothy Treco

I was born in Nassau and my family goes back at least 6 generations, so I am a native to the Bahamas as one can get. I am a local businessman who lives on site and work within minutes of the property.

I have many years of experience in Vacation Rentals as I have been doing this for almost 5 years. I am the father of four grown children, the last born in 1993. I am a Christian and believe strongly in traditional family values.

Timothy Treco purchased this condo in 2013

Why Timothy Treco chose Nassau & Paradise Island

I chose this property due to it's location and convenience. Everything important is near by, and most things are within walking distance. If you are doing business in the Bahamas, this is an idea location. It's easy to get to, and close to the financial center.

What makes this condo unique

What makes 402 great is it's three porches that over look Nassau Harbour. Enjoy the view, day or night.

Our home for a month!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful month at the Pilot House. Everyone we encountered in the Bahamas was friendly and helpful! Do not be afraid of "going native". There are very poor areas and areas of blight but we were never afraid, although didn't push this after dark. If you want a "tour" of the island sites, by pass the companies, and get a well informed taxi driver in town by the docks and hire him for much less. Taxi to the Pilot House from airport is $32.00 one way for two people. Definitely do Potters Cay, Viola's, Montague Gardens, the Cloisters, yaughts at Atlantis marina. Tuesday and Thursday evenings have great music at the Sheraton British Colonial bar. If you are there the last Friday of the month, contact the tourist board ahead and set you the High Tea at the Governor's House. A really special treat and worth the planning. Knock off purses on side street directly opposite straw market. J Baha Mar is coming big time! Look up on line.

The best things: Tim Trecho is the best! Always available, always responsible and a great guy. He i knows everything about the island there is to know. Second, is Ceddrick, the on site Major domo. He is there daily and can help with info about the building, and Nassau.Third, The condo is exactly as represented, so have no worries. It is very secure, with guarded gated entrance. But, be sure you want to be away from the tourist areas, as it is a hike into town.  Grocery, restaurants are all nearby but closest beach is a mile walk each way. Next, the views! The best! View is panoramic and wonderful.

Things that surprised us:Groceries are outragously expensive! Bag of Doritos $7.50, chicken breasts $10.99 a pound.There is now 7% tax on everything, including restaurant meals and groceries. Restaurants all add 15% gratuity to every bill.If you are here a week, laundry probably won't be an issue, but for a month it was a huge concern. Each laundry load is five dollars to wash and dry.  If you put in more than the smallest loads they don't work. There is no warm or hot water despite what it says.You cannot drink tap water, so must pay for bottled. Ceddrick can arrange large 5 gallon delivery at five dollars each.The building itself is very dated outside, hallways, and public areas. Could use updating everywhere but clean and not a problem for us. The pool was a disappointment. Swim only on the two days a week it is cleaned. After that the birds use it as bath and potty. The deck and landscaping in the pool need work!

Very nice place to stay, clean and spacious and a great view of the harbour. We found having a car really helpful for going to the beach or touring the island, but the Jitney bus is also convenient. There is a large grocery store just down the street. Timothy is a great host and was super helpful. We really enjoyed our stay at Pilot House.

Pilot House

The appartment was fantastic, we came with our daughters (21 and 19) and the first time, we had enough space for our clothes.....two bathrooms, two bedrooms with very big and comfortable beds, the appartment was very big for four adults, it was very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed (dishwasher, coffeemachine a.s.o.), beach towels and linen to change...

the distance to Paradise Island is very close (over the bridge) and we went there every day.

Timothy helped us very much, he is so kind and helpful. We booked the pick up and drop off service, because we didn´t need a car, but our flight was delayed, over 3 hours, but that wasn´t a problem...great job... It was a perfect stay! We´ll recommend it to everybody who want to spend the holidays in Nassau!

GREAT CONDO IN GATED COMMUNITY

  • 4 of 5

My husband and myself stayed at this condo for one week in December. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we found the condo to be extremely well equipped, very clean and very reasonably priced. Being as only two of us rented this accommodation it was very spacious, having two large bedrooms and two bathrooms. However, It would be equally spacious for four persons. We did not take advantage of the car offered by Timothy - we found that walking over the bridge to Paradise Island, taking taxis and using the local jitneys served us well. We felt very secure in the condo as it is a gated community. We would have rated this five stars instead of four had the pool area been a little more inviting. There were no chairs and no one else around. The Poop Deck restaurant is just across the street and we had meals there a couple of times. The Harbour Bay Shopping Centre is very convenient - about a five minute walk from the condo. In this complex is a very large and well stocked grocery store, a Starbucks, Domino's Pizza and other stores. On our first day Timothy drove us there and we walked back. A very handy shopping area! We would certainly recommend this condo, probably more so for adults. Thank you, Timothy!

Feedback

  • 3 of 5

The property was located on Nassau Harbour as advertised , in a condonimum that was in need of repair and refurbishment, especially the swimming pool and facilities . The unit we booked was unfortunately double booked and we were asked to move to another unit , which was adequate for our stay, although it had a small amount of ants in the kitchen. We used a vehicle made available for private use , which was excellent for driving all over the island. The car did unfortunately require us to lift the hood on a few occasions to re start it . The owner was very helpful throughout and answered all calls promptly and efficiently . Staying at the location required us to drive to all the beaches and the restaurants , although there were a couple within walking distance .

Loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

Timothy is a fabulous host for your stay. The apartment is lovely and has a view of the harbor. Timothy arranged a car which was really convenient. Buses run into old town and local restaurants are plentiful. Most excursions will pick you up at the condo. A dive with Bahama Divers is just across the main street and Potter's Cay, a local Fish Fry is within walking distance, about 5 minutes. Security is suffice with a friendly guard at the gate for entry either walking or to park a car. The building is older and has some plumbing problems, but nothing major. We had a great time, eating local food, swimming in the condo's pool, touring the island and getting to know the local residents.

Thanks for a great stay!
