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.
