Guestbook comments from the manager

We all relaxed, swam, jet skiied, kayaked, watched a terrific electrical storm, swam with dolphins, watched the Olympics, enjoyed Cabbage Beach and drank lots of Kalik. The only disappointment was the Exuma powerboat trip was canceled due to the weather, shouldn't have left it to the end I guess. The house was the perfect size for both our families and there was lots of cousin bonding!

Thank you again,

You can't go wrong!

  • 5 of 5

We spent school-vacation week 2017 in ShangriLa and to a person everyone was more than happy with what we found. . . . .and there were 13 of us from 7 to 70! The home itself is magnificent, very warm and inviting, very well-appointed and equipped with whatever you might need for a wonderful vacation. The location is perfect. You're right on the water with plenty of beach to explore. The walk into town is very reasonable although for those who prefer to ride, the jitney could not be more convenient. Exploring Nassau was fun, but everyone was always very happy to return home to the lovely pool, the covered porch that provided shade from the hot sun and, of course, the ocean. From beginning to end Sue was remarkably responsive and helpful, answering all of our questions and providing suggestions for in-house chefs, transportation, activities, etc. All 13 of us would highly recommend ShangriLa for your family vacation!

Awesome Place for Large Families

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying at Shangri La and it never disappoints. It is hard to find an island house which is on the beach, has a swimming pool, and will comfortably accommodate our family of 10 but Shangri La definitely delivers at a price that you can't beat. There is also an additional cottage on the property which you can use and that would easily accommodate an additional 5 people or more.

The other thing we love about Shangri La is that fact that it is on Cable Beach which is protected by a barrier reef so it is almost always calm... This is great for our 4 young grandsons and is also great for paddle-boarding or kayaking (which are both supplied with the rental) as well as snorkeling. Although there aren't reefs to snorkel, the grassy areas are great for small fishe, sea turtle, starfish, conch, and the occasional stingray.

Cable beach is a short drive to the Atlantis, downtown Nassau, and Baha Mar (if it ever opens). We typically rent 2 Mini-Vans which the property manager arranges for us.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to take our daughters families on a special vacation that everyone could enjoy and remember always. We were so happy to find Shangri La which fit that plan perfectly. The house had 3 master bedrooms for the adults and well appointed bedrooms for the girls and boys each to call their own "space". The setting with the pool and large patio right on the beach was both exciting and relaxing. We could not get enough of it! The kitchen served our every need and the common rooms gave every opportunity to gather or just sit by ones self and relax. The houses location was perfect for access to everything the island offers. With 12 of us there we rented both the 7 person van and the little "swift" from Sand Dollar which gave us plenty of flexibility. And it was wonderful how the staff of Shangri La and Sand Dollar made every effort to assure we had "no worries".

Great place to spend the holidays

  • 5 of 5

We fit 3 families - 7 adults, 6 teenagers in the main house/guest house. The main house was great. Roomy, lots of seating inside and outside on the patio. Kitchen is well equipped.

Spent lots of time outdoors on the patio/in the pool. The paddle board and sea kayak were fantastic. Went snorkelling and fishing right in the bay. Sandy beach just a few steps away.

We rented a car from the onsite property manager. Was really easy and useful. 15 min drive from airport, grocery stores about 7 mins away, Atlantis about 15 mins, downtown Nassau about 10 mins drive, Fish fry really close.

We had chef Sweeting cook up 2 meals for us on Christmas day. He also provided a great welcome snack and drinks for free. Highly recommend him.

Overall a great place to stay.

Great house, would return

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my bachelorette party and it was perfect. It's private, safe and you feel like you have your own beach as not many people use it. It was clean, the staff is friendly and the property managers are professional from the beginning until the end. The house is beautiful, I feel like pictures don't do it justice. It has everything you need and you can head to the local grocery store to stock up on supplies for your stay.

It was close enough to local hangouts but taxis do get expensive especially with larger groups, we appreciated the heads up from the house managers about not getting ripped off with taxi prices.

Would recommend this house and stay here again!
