My wife and I and another couple wanted a place to stay near Nassau with 2 Bedrooms and 2 baths that wasn’t crazy expensive. We happened upon the Sunset Cove Apartments, read the reviews and we are so happy we did! The location and views are phenomenal. The front of the property is just steps from the water. There is a nice beach just to the left of the property and to the right of the property is a great snorkeling area. The apartments are well appointed with kitchen living room, dining room washer/dryer, and everything you need in the kitchen. Each unit has its own propane grill, which we used a couple of times to grill burgers on. Getting around from here is very easy. You don’t need a car, which is great, as car rental as very expensive on the island. The property is right along the #10 and 12 bus line, for $1.25 you can get downtown , the airport, Cable Beach, restaurants, or anywhere else you will want to go. Try Nesbitts right across the street for great local food at a reasonable price! We stayed in 2 units while we were here, Exuma, which is on the first floor and Flamingo Cay, which is on the 2nd floor. We preferred the first floor units, as you can walk right out the door to the sandy beach area and picnic tables right in front of the apartment and has faster beach access, but you really can’t go wrong with any of the units. Mary and Peter live on the property and are very accommodating and great at communicating and answering questions, taking care of any issues, etc. All in all, our stay in the Bahamas couldn’t have been better! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Peter and Mary for everything!

The apartment was lovely and tastefully decorated with both furnishings and fresh flowers. The view was beyond compare as my love for the ocean is great! Anything we needed was just a phone call or text away as Dom and Joy were very attentive to our needs and accommodating! The binder that Joy prepared giving directions to beaches, restaurants and their menus, maps, guide and rental services and so much information that first time visitors like ourselves would have been totally lost without was such a help! We called it our bible! We liked living right inside the little town of Governor's Harbor. The weather was wonderful as were all the new friends we met! We truly loved the Friday night fish and wished we could have stayed for the next one. The French Leave Beach was quite lovely and nice for people that like to walk on the beach. We loved to eat breakfast at Buckaneer's and I really liked Tippy's! The little bakery just 2 blocks down from our residence had the best coconut scones I've ever tasted as well as lovely cheese danish and some little donuts with lemon in the middle that my husband loved.
The only real problem was the no see'um bugs that bit the crap out of my husband but not me. He's already planning his defense for our return which we hope will be sooner than later. We would also like to take our children and their spouses sometime as we know they would also love it. We also would rent a four wheel drive vehicle next time to be more confident in our explorations off the main road. Chris plans to fish next time and will visit the fisherman's market and support it. We miss it and will reminisce often and look forward to the next time. And of course, we will definately stay in one of Joy and Don's properties!
