the place was awesome! we had all the facilities we needed.( washer, drier, dishwasher, stove etc) there was full access to the pool. it is only minutes away from the ocean, the markets and the bakery. there is easy bus and taxi access there. i would rec amend this place to families with children. the zoo is only a 5 minute bus ride away!! if i ever get a chance to go to Nassau again i would want to stay there.
This place is exactly as advertised if not better. We spent 8 January 2017 nights there with two young kids (4 and 6). Armin and Vernice live on the property as well but the two units are separated from each other (plus they work all day). We had our privacy to enjoy the pool, large yard and basketball net on the driveway but knew that Armin and Vernice were close by for any of the little questions we had about the area or the property. There are the basics there for the kids (sand toys, beach towels, pool noodles, basketball etc)...so we didn't have to bring much (just the way we like it!). As others have mentioned, it is a 5 minute (or less) walk to groceries, wine, beach and a couple of restaurants/fast food. Everything was clean and as expected. Note - the pools are obviously not heated in the Bahamas and we did have a couple of cold weather days that made the pool a little too chilly for even our Canadian kids. Frankly this place was great and just a nice little spot for a private getaway without too much fuss. Would definitely recommend for the younger families looking to keep it easy, close to the beach and have outside pool/yard space. Thanks Armin and Vernice for a wonderful vacation!
This rental was the highlight of our stay. The most important thing was we felt like we were at home, not in a hotel. Armin and Vernice are wonderful hosts and we would definitely return to this rental should we plan to visit Nassau again. The pool was nice and all of the accessories (noodles, snorkels etc.) were included right next to it. We had no problems getting to the grocery store as it was just minutes away and a simple walk. Beaches are right near by as well. I would recommend this over a resort anytime just because we have a family of 5 and our children were seldom bored here because there was plenty of room to run around the house, and we had wifi and TV, something where we think a resort would fall short. Thank you Armin and Vernice for being so helpful to us during our stay and thank you for the pastries...it was a nice parting gift and we were sad to leave. Highly recommend!
This place was wonderful! It is a great place to stay! Armin and Vernice made us feel right at home! They were available if we had any type of questions! We had the pool all to ourselves. We were close to the beach and not far away from a public bus pickup which made it very easy to go into downtown! There is no need for a car! The unit is just as shown in the pictures! It is located in a quiet neighborhood! We felt very safe and comfortable! Thanks Armin and Vernice for a wonderful time! We really enjoyed visiting with you on our pastry night!
We travel frequently and primarily rent properties for housing. Our experience here was different in that we were treated more as house guests rather than renters. Vernice especially went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The unit contained all of the essentials for a very comfortable stay. The property is located in the Cable Beach area some 5-6 miles west of the downtown area and where the cruise ships dock. While the area is quiet and residential, access to the main tourist areas is easily accessible via the local bus service. The cost of living is high on the island but the best bargain in Nassau is the bus service--a $1.25 per ride.
The rental unit is within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, the post office, and a large grocery store. The same can be said of a public beach nestled close to major resorts. The swimming pool was as much bigger hit with our grandchildren who accompanied us on this trip.
What separates this rental from others is the degree of personal attention. Vernice, on her own, provided us with a guided tour of the island in her personal car and answered all of our many questions about the history of the Bahamas and current issues confronting the Bahamians. Our entire experience was welcoming. She deserves an A+ for her hospitality. I have no reservations in recommending this rental at the highest level.
The house is very nice, exactly as shown in the pictures and stocked with all the basic necessities. It is in a quiet and safe neighborhood, one block away from the main street (East Bay St.) and close to everything. Spacious yard, nice pool for an afternoon dive (after a swim at the beautiful nearby beaches). Importantly, Vernice and Armin are great hosts - thank you for having us, we enjoyed the house, your nice deserts, and the company.
The Hamshire Residence is located on 31 Hampshire Street, in the Cable Beach area of Nassau, Bahamas. It is a quite residential neighbourhood, in walking distance of beaches, many hotel resorts, casino, restaurants, shopping, foodstores, post office, night life, sports. The local bus # 10, here called 'Jitney' can take you downtown Nassau for $ 1.25 per person/ride. Stand on the side of the street and wave your hand when you see one approaching. They run during daytime only. Scotia Bank is located on West Bay Street, about a 10 minute walk or 2 minute bus/car ride to the east of Hampshire Residence
