Overview

About the property

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.

Great location and very helpful and accommodating owner!

  • 3 of 5

The property was in a great locale close to the fish fry and we felt very safe to walk back and forth in the area. Groceries are very expensive in Nassau, it was fabulous to have Julie drive us to the market for a trip to stock up our first day to help us out! Our family of 4 was very comfortable in the suite and the only thing we really missed was somewhere to sit outside each morning With a bit more space. We would recommend this rental for sure!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Another couple, along with my wife and I spent 9 days and had a wonderful time! The location of Julie’s villa apartment is excellent! The Fish Fry, beaches, and downtown are just a few minutes away.

Julie’s driver met us at the airport when we arrived and we used his cab service for our entire stay. He was personable, reliable and generously shared many interesting facts about the history and culture of The Bahamas.

Julie was a wonderful host. She called to see if we required anything and when we did was quick to respond. We had the opportunity to meet some of Julie’s family who live in the same complex. They too were wonderful hosts.

Great vacation!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Julie is an amazing host and her villa apartment was exactly what we needed! The location is amazing - just a five minute walk to all the restaurants at the fish fry, and 7 minutes to Junkanoo beach. There are some beautiful smaller beaches just a short walk in the other direction (away from downtown, towards Cable beach) as well. Julie had a driver meet us at the airport to make sure we arrived safely, and she also took us out to get some groceries on our first night. Anything else we needed was easily accessible - nearby corner stores for water, and a fruit and veggie stand on the corner by the fish fry.

The unit was very clean, and there were even some basic kitchen supplies (salt, pepper, seasoning, sugar, oil) in the cupboard. Wi-fi was a good speed - which was perfect to be able to keep up with the occasional work email, or even to watch Netflix on the one rainy night we had during our stay.

Julie was very easy to get in touch with, and very responsive to all our questions :)

We had an amazing time and can't wait to return!

Just what we wanted for our first trip to Nassau!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to stay away from large resorts and hotels with their outrageous costs and explore the local area. Julie's apartment is exactly that and in the right spot for walking to the beach and Fish Fry(5 minutes) and downtown Nassau (15 minutes) She and her family are great hosts. Some of her family lives in the same apt. complex and are so helpful and kind. Julie took us to the grocery store on our first night there and we stocked up on breakfast foods and snacks. There is a small grocery store around the corner and we picked up a newspaper, water and other necessities there during the week. The apartment is very clean, has great wifi and had everything we needed. We loved talking to the locals in the area, and being in a quiet location. If we get the opportunity to return to Nassau we will book with Julie again. Thank you and your family Julie.

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!
