Overview

Nassau Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

Great Winter Rates!! Stay our centrally located native Villa which will help you to create your very own vacation memories by enjoying life like a Bahamian while experiencing Nassau. Get away from the crowded hustle and bustle of commercial hotels and relax in a tranquil setting where the tropical winds provide a calming environment.

Your villa is uniquely nestled in a quiet neighborhood yet easily accessible to everything. Open the blinds and watch the dawn of each new day as the sunrise kisses the tropical trees located in the breathtaking Botanical Gardens which are literally in your backyard! Walk 25 steps from your backyard and view the Botanical Gardens' 600 species of flowering trees and shrubs. Want a shorter commute to a tropical garden? Then just step outside the front door of the villa and explore within our grounds various plant and flowers.

Ready to tour Nassau? Now, casually stroll 100 steps heading east and you will be in Fort Charlotte. Built by British in 1776, a guided tour of Fort Charlotte features a water-less moat, draw-bridge, underground passages and dungeons which recounts slavery and emancipation in The Bahamas. Alternatively, stroll 100 steps heading south and you can tour Popopstudios Centre for the Visual Arts (formerly Dillet’s Guesthouse).

The public transportation is only a 3 minutes stroll--$1 heading east takes you to the Straw Market, Downtown Nassau or Atlantis/Paradise Island or take a scenic 15 minute walk and you are in the heart of the Town. While in town visit the Queen’s staircase which was carved out of solid limestone by slaves in the late 18th century between 1793 and 1794. Alternatively, a 7 minutes ride further west of the apartment places you at Cable Beach public 18-hole golf course. Have fun at the world renowned Cable Beach Strip. There are 3 additional beaches for your absolute pleasure. For the nature lover, just 50 feet from your villa you’ll see the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center which provides a sanctuary and survival center for over 300 exotic birds, mammals and reptiles. It is famous for being home to the world famous marching pink flamingos.

This well-maintained, spacious and modern apartment has a fully equipped kitchen and the living and dining are designed with your comfort in mind. This 2-bedroom 1 bathroom apartment can easily be converted to a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom unit. Rest, relax, spoil and pamper yourself. Your package includes transfers from the airport, a 30-minute trip to the food store, free local phone calls and internet access.

Ready to feast on Bahamian delicacies? A minute walk takes you to Fish Fry where you will find an array of native restaurants--serving mouthwatering native dishes—cultural music and entertainment. Afterward, relax and unwind at the nearby Arawak Cay white sandy beach or take a short bus ride to Saunders Beach or Cable Beach.

Convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Julie's place is low maintenance and cosy with a fully equipped kitchen, cable TV, ceiling fans and airconditioning so it definitely met the needs of my family of 5 for 9 days.

Julie arranged airport pickup and took us to the grocery store and laundromat (she can also arrange for someone else to do your laundry) which was great. Julie kept in contact regularly.

The Ardastra Zoo is a few minutes walk away, the kids will enjoy the flamingo show and feeding the rainbow lorikeets. There is also cricket or the cricket club for a meal and Fort Charlotte is in walking distance too.

Fish Fry is a 5-10 minute walk at the end of the road, it has a great selection of seafood restaurants and although everyone claims to be the original Fish Fry, we recommend 'Oh Andros', large servings of food for the same price as the others. You have to try the conch fritters and grilled lobster tail.

You can catch a #10 or #12 jitney (mini bus) from Fish Fry to go east downtown (different museums and shops) or west to go to various beaches (like Cable beach) or the airport. The #12 can take you all the way to Clifton Heritage Park, snorkeling in the underwater sculpture garden. It usually costs $1.25pp per ride, a little more if you go far. They stop running at 6.30pm.

We hired a car for a couple of days just to explore at our own leisure, loaded up with our beach gear and the cooler from the house to visit other beaches at Paradise Island as well as just driving along the coast (visit the Rum Cake Factory!). Hire online, it is more expensive to hire over the phone or as a walk-in. Julie provides a car space.

Thanks Julie!

We stayed in Julie's condo in March 2015 and it met our needs very well. Its location gave us easy access to points of interest, it was comfortable to stay in and Julie went out of her way to be kind and helpful. We would stay there again without hesitation.

DON'T HESITATE , CLEAN, WARM AND WELCOMING

  • 5 of 5

Juile is the BEST, she is your personal entertainment, tour and dinning guide, her place meets and exceeds expectations for cleanliness and requirements for a short/ extended stay. If I didn't have to go back to work my husband and I would have stayed for as long as she would have us. Julie along with her fellow Bahamians made our 15 night stay on the island the best holiday we have ever experienced. I would highly recomment this suite for anyone and for any amount of time.

convenient

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to stay away from large resorts and explore the local area. Julie's villa is in exactly the right spot for walking into Nassau, enjoying Fish Fry, the zoo, the cricket club for games and food, catching a bus to any area and just feeling more at home and relaxed. She and her family are great hosts. We had 5 nights at the villa and wish we could have spent longer. If we get the opportunity to return to Nassau we will book with Julie again. Thank you and your family Julie.

Home Away from Home in Nassau

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at this villa! Julie is so considerate and goes out of her way to help her visitors in any way she can. The apt. is exceptionally clean and very well equiped. The pictures in this listing are exactly what the apt. looks like. We enjoyed staying in a residiential area rather than the expensive hotels, and were able to make friends there who are all very wonderful people. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to get a true look of what Nassau is. We enjoyed the Fish Fry area, the Aradastra Zoo right down the block, and Fort Charlotte, as well as the beaches, the Straw Market and downtown. I would love to stay at this property again.
