New Providence Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 Sunrise 12A

This Sunrise Beach Villa 12A is a unique location on Paradise Island.

It has all the amenities needed for a relaxing vacation and spiritual revival. This is a 2 bedroom second floor location overlooking a pool and the turquoise ocean as a backdrop. For a family vacation sleeping a maximum of 6 this is the affordable choice. The rate has no extra charges.

We are an affordable choice for families on Paradise Island. We have 2 more similar locations, Sunrise 12 and 9A,

both 2 bedroom 2 bathroom if your selected time is not available. You have a restaurant and bar rite on site here and can order groceries online or visit local supermarkets.

Paradise Island is far more compact to avail of what it has to offer, the beach is spectacular and the presence of Atlantis makes it a destination in itself. The next commonest question is whether it is necessary to stay at an Atlantis property to avail of the water slides etc?.,

The biggest decision when traveling is whether the people we book for will be happy with our choice. The trepidation of this has been palpable for me personally. I sincerely believe you will be thrilled in your decision. Choosing over the internet is a draining process with so many choices. Being a large family we have chosen this location because of what one need to achieve-good access to fun things to do, safe, clean, food readily available and easy beach access. A tranquil environment allows relaxation and connectivity within a family. The Bahamas itself is relaxing to visit and having access to such a unique property will be reinvigorating for the whole family. A large busy hotel is not all that relaxing and very overwhelming. Cabbage beach -the beach at you doorstep is one of the most breathtaking views in the world. The turquoise ocean and heaped sand , uncrowded at the Sunrise stretch is a remarkable vista.

The savings at Sunrise with us is very affordable and presents more space and technology support at no extra cost. Aquaventure passes ($120 adult Child $80) available for sale at Atlantis allow access to all the water parks at Atlantis. We have never had a visitor not be able to acquire one. An explorer pass just allows touring of the grounds. Casino, beach and restaurant access does not require a pass. In the evening all the grounds are accessible without a pass.

Atlantis properties are very costly for a family and the savings at Sunrise with us more than allow a family to buy the Aquaventure passes- 2 full days is ample and this leaves time to explore downtown, go snorkeling or scuba diving, enjoy the beach or do a dolphin encounter trip.

This way you feel you have really seen Atlantis and the Bahamas!

Why stay at Sunrise Beach?: The biggest decision when traveling is whether the people we book for will be happy with our choice. The trepidation of this has been palpable for me personally. I sincerely believe you will be thrilled in your decision. Choosing over the internet is a draining process with so many choices. Being a large family we have chosen this location because of what one need to achieve-good access to fun things to do, safe, clean, food readily available and easy beach access. A tranquil environment allows relaxation and connectivity within a family.

Advantages of booking at Sunrise Beach: Please do not waste countless hours emailing and calling other properties. Book here today, book your flight to Nassau and you are on a most spectacular island with no need to rent a car at peace with the sound of the ocean enveloping you.

Access to Atlantis and why to book at Sunrise: Atlantis is an expensive destination to stay at- extra charges add up to 18% on top of booking rate.

The cost of meals to feed a family is prohibitive. Having your own place to prepare Come and stay at Sunrise beach, the affordable choice. We offer the best value and have the added benefit of internet and long distance available at no charge.

Paradise Island is a beautiful safe and peaceful island connected by 2 bridges to Nassau. The island is only 3 miles

long so all the amenities are within walking distance. You are located one property away from Atlantis-closer to the main part of Atlantis than Atlantis visitors, who need to take a shuttle to where you can go. You are next door to the One and Only Ocean Club.

Downtown Nassau is a colonial city with lots of interesting things to do and see.

Paradise Island has a beach side, where we are located and the harbour side a few minutes walk away.

We provide very comfortable villas on Paradise Island and provide long distance calls without charge to home, as well as free internet service. All places have LCD Tvs, in living room and each bedroom. All villas have central air conditioning.

To access Atlantis simply buy passes at Atlantis if going on watersides. Access to casino and restaurants naturally has no cost.

Sunrise Beach Resort Hotel is on the same site as us and has earned very high ratings. We rent independently to our guests however to provide the most affordable rates. If you book last minute a special discount applies and if you book 2 or more places for the same time a 10% discount applies off nightly rate.

John Fitzsimmons purchased this villa in 2005

Why John Fitzsimmons chose New Providence

Paradise Island has the advantages of not needing a car, having terrific weather,a spectacular long powdery sandy beach, the most amazing water theme park in North America-Atlantis as well. The Bahamas has great food and culture. Paradise Island is safe to go out at night, well lit, with sidewalks and has a wide selection of restaurants , imcluding Japanese, Chinese, Mexican and Steakhouses. The entertainment choices are endless, from beach activities, teen club, Aura nightclub, comedy shows as well as big name performers featuring at Atlantis. There is a large casino at Atlantis anf the Aquaventure theme park is spectacular, with the Power Tower, Mayan temple, 2 lazy rivers as well as a shark slide where you go through a helix tube and emerge into another tube, surrounded by sharks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved being here. Everything about the Villa and Paradise Island was perfect - the beach, the pool, Viola's, we enjoyed being here so much more than staying at the Atlantis. It's been just a wonderful vacation. Thank you for all the thoughtful details - they made it so enjoyable.

PS - The Dolphin Swim was so much fun - it was worth the cost.

A great week in Paradise!!

  • 4 of 5

Our trip in June was our first experience with Homeaway. Everything went very good in the planning stages . The owner John was great to work with and he personally answered all my questions and concerns. Prearrival info explained access to the units and we had no problems during our week stay.

We were extremely happy with the units themselves. We rented a 2 and 3 bedroom units and the locations near the pool and beach was great!! Viola's was a fun restaurant on site and they were very helpful in the office getting us cabs when needed!

This location is a short walk to a little market, Atlantis and the harbor to go to Blue Lagoon or take the water taxi. All considered We have no complaints !!

I hope we can get back here again some day as it is truly Paradise.

Great location, great beach access.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Private access to the beach, walking distance to the Atlantis and local shopping. This condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

We actually eloped while we were here and Regia was our coordinator. She did a fantastic job. She took care of everything and even thought of details that we hadn't.

We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful vacation on Paradise Island!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If your going to visit Paradise Island, Sunrise Beach Villa is the place to stay. John Fitzsimons (the owner of the condo) was very responsive to all my emails. The condo was just as the pictures portrayed and the walk to to the beach was only steps away. Lounge chairs rentals are $10.00 a chair and for $20.00 you can drink all day. The property was well maintained and beautiful. Kudos to Dianna ( manager of the property). She was professional and personable at the same time. We had a small issue with the DVD player and she took care of it immediately. She even called the next morning to see how things were going. Viola's which is right in the complex and is a restaurant/bar is a good place to eat if you don't feel like dining out. The people there were very friendly and helpful. If you stop there ask for Vardo. He gave us lots of information about theisland. In fact my two sons went out on the town with him. Cabs are all over the island and very reasonable. Ask for a price first. The lady in the office at Sunrise Villa will tell you it's $20.00 for the first two people and $3.00 for every other person. Ask someone at Violas to call you a cab.A must see is the Blue Lagoon. It was beautiful. Only a ferry ride away. We did the dolphin encounters and dolphin swim while we were there. Staff was very friendly and the lagoon is beautiful. The food was good but beware the alcoholic beverages are very strong. You can also snorkel their too. We spent one day at Atlantis which was not the highlight of our vacation. My adult kids enjoyed the leap of faith but the layout of the park could be improved. Be prepared to do lots of walking. And if you plan to use your credit card make sure you have id with you. Some stands at Atlantis accepted cash only and others credit card only or you can charge to your room if your staying there. The only problem was that in most cases you didn't know what was accepted until you were at the counter. As far as restaurants we went to Anthony's which is not far from the villa (we walked there) and the food was good.We also are at the Poop Deck. The food for the most part was very good however the Lobster was over cooked. Spanks which is located near the straw market was good too. If you go to the straw market you will find that most of the vendors there are very aggressive in trying to sell you things. You need to be a good haggler if going there. Thank you John and Dianna for wonderful vacation. Your condo was clean and comfortable.

Amazing, relaxing, good location

  • 5 of 5

The property's door is approximately 5-7 meters from the pool. Maybe, 20-30 meters from the beach. The beach has white send and blue ocean. We could swim every day - but depending on the day, the ocean may be calm or it may have waves.

It's about 7-10 minutes walk to Atlantis. Owner provided really good instructions and recommendations. We got to enjoy Atlantis and relaxing vacation at the same time! Thank you, John

Simply Unbelievable!.. If its available, book it!

  • 5 of 5

First off, John Fitzsimmons is a fantastic owner and a great person to do business with. Secondly, his vacation rental is something out of a dream, overlooking the pool and still has a 100 yard (at most) view/walk to the crystal clear ocean water. Third, I honestly will not stay anywhere else when I come back to the Bahamas. You're far enough down from the crazy Atlantis people (who over paid by at least double), but still in such a prime location on the beach that you couldn't ask for a better location.

10 minute walk to Atlantis. 10 minute walk to marina. 10 minute walk to casino. 10 minute walk to the store.... and that's if you were walking backwards! haha

Simply loved it! I have recommended this property to every person I have spoken to about the Bahamas, so take my advice, there wasn't a thing to complain about in this entire unit!

John- Sorry it took so long for the review, I remembered while looking at what dates you had available for my next trip!

Thanks again!
