Mackay purchased this house in 2010
We bought this property as we love the Bahamian lifestyle, climate and proximity to the sea. The house is designed for a homey feel, cottage like settings, entertaining and relaxing of which we love to do. Eventually, we plan to retire to our house and have lazy days by the pool and watch the breath taking sunsets and stargaze from our roof top hide away. The high stairway to the roof top patio is within building regulations but safe for all adults.
We love watching the activities on the sea and surrounding areas from our rooftop deck as well as relaxing on our outdoor terraces. Year round swimming in the pool and nearby sea are added benefits.

If you want to do yourself a favor don't EVER rent this house.
We rented this house for 7 days in June 2015. We were 9 people in total (6 adults, 3 kids).
The house is nothing like the pictures. In reality is depressing and has no light.
They claim they have A/C in the whole house which is not true. There is only A/C in the rooms but not in the common areas and at night when you are cooking it can turn into hell.
Also in the Bahamas is very common that electricity constantly goes out. Not a problem for those houses that have a generator but for this one that doesn't have one it was a big issue.
The first and only nigh we stayed in the house the electricity went off for 2 hours in the middle of the night. My sister, hubby and kid that were sleeping in the basement had to sleep on the couch and floor because the heat in the basement was unberable.
Next day after a nice day at the beach we came back to the house to find a notice from the Electricity company saying that the owners owed $3201.93 in bills. Notice also said that electricity was cut off until payment was received. This was a Friday at 4pm so as you can imagine it was not going to happen any time soon.
After many talks with the owners of the house we finally agreed that they would put us in a hotel for that night until they either get their electricity back or get us another house.
After packing back again we end up in a hotel near the house. Next morning they agreed to call us before 10am which was our check out time at the hotel. I told them I needed a response on what was going to happen ASAP.
They never called with any solution to our situation.
We were lucky enough that the owner of the hotel after hearing about our situation decided to offer us his rental home at a very good price. By this time it was already 12pm.
Because of the luck of response and the luck of solutions they hadfor us we decided to secure our stay in the Bahamas and rent the second house.
I sent an e-mail to the owners and let them know about our discontent and the rental of the new house. Also asked them for my money back (Except for the night we used it).
We never got all our money back. They end up charging us $900. Also they claimed we broke a window in order to get the deposit after we took 150 pictures of the house showing everything was in excelent condition.
I asked them for a picture of the broken window and of course never received it because it was a lie.
Worst experience ever. CANNOT TRUST THIS PEOPLE.
It is so difficult to know where to begin, this was the best trip ever for myself and two friends. I enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the villa yet being so close to Nassau (easy trip on the bus) you could up the pace if you wanted to. We enjoyed so much swimming in the ocean, being able to come home to our luxurious home, relax with good food and lots of laughs. The villa was clean, extremely well equipped and the owners and staff made us feel more than welcome. Help or advice was only a telephone call away. The owners has also left lots of information for things to do and places to visit (including costs etc.) The area setting was close to beaches, a well equipped Superstore where we did most of our shopping and local restaurants as well. I would say that we had unbeatable value for a wonderful stay in Paradise. The locals made us feel extremely welcome - now back at home when work gets unbearable I focus on Star villa, the pool, bbq and just melt my brain into Paradise. I would recommend this rental home as a must and am looking forward to returning again myself - why would I look for anything else when it is all there (my only mistake is that I should have booked for a longer visit!) I would certainly recommend this type of holiday (and villa) to my friends without any hesitation that everything would run smoothly for them as the owners are great hosts and organizer's themselves.
Where do I begin....Well from the moment of booking Stargazevilla and then to our departure, the owner went above and beyond of making sure our stay in Stargazevilla was unbelievable.
Eventhough few months have passed since our stay, I can't stop thinking how perfect Stargazevilla was for our family of three. We have travelled quite a bit in the past, however staying in Bahamas at the Stargazevilla was the best trip ever. The house is very spacious, VERY clean, safe, the kitchen is well equiped and the owner is very friendly, always ready to help you out. This house is perfect for all sorts of gateways and the location is great. You can catch the local bus or even rent a car and you will be in downtown within 10 minutes. If you enjoy swimming and snorkeling and you want to do it on your own, the drive from Stargazevilla is 10 to 15 minutes to Clifton Heritage Park and other beaches.
Stargazevilla was home away from home, however ten times better. Thank you Stargazevilla owner for a wonderful stay.
My wife and I came to the Bahamas for our wedding and needed a place to stay that would accomodate us and some of our guests.
Not only was the property absolutely perfect for the occasion, the owner went ABSOLUTELY above and beyond to ensure that our stay was exactly what we needed. If I could give this place 6 stars, I would.
Not exactly pictured is the amazing roof deck.
Thanks so much again to the owners! Stargaze Villa is the best!
I stayed here with my wife, my 6-month old kid and three friends back in November 2014. There was plenty of space both in the bedroom and the common-areas for us all. There was even enough room for another family to come and it wouldn't have been over-crowed at all.
We had planned to see a lot of the sights on the island, but it was so relaxing and comfortable at the house that we ended up staying at the house for the majority of the trip. Days were spent by the pool and nights were spent on the patio that wraps around the house. There is a grocery store just a quick drive from the house, so we stocked up on food and prepared and ate all of our meals at house.
The house has everything you could ask for, a fully equipped kitchen, BBQ, lot of gear for a baby (playpen, car seat, bouncy chair), comfortable pool-side recliners, pool toys, local phone and satellite TV. It was very clean and had an amazing Bahamian charm to it. The roof-top patio was a great spot to catch the sunsets.
The house is located in a gated community and we felt very safe. All the locals we came across in the neighborhood were very friendly.
The owners were very helpful and always available whenever we had a question.
This was our first experience in the Bahamas. As a large group of people mixed with single couples, and small families, we were concerned about choosing an all-inclusive which is why we searched for a rental property. We were excited to find a property that offered the amenities that Stargaze did. This place met the variety of needs of our entire group.
The bedrooms were spacious and the layout was very conducive to the mixed group. The eating area accommodated the group well enough, and the kitchen was fully stocked with all we needed and large enough to have 'many cooks' do their work.
The bathrooms were clean and functional. However, the water pressure was weak even when only running one of the showers at a time.
There were many common areas to relax, both inside and outside of the villa. The family room was cozy and provided enough room for our entire party to plan our day's events.
Overall, the place was very clean and cozy, and we would definitely return! The air conditioning system worked fabulously, and the fans helped to circulate the air. We wish the laundry worked a little better (could never get through a full load of laundry). We were told that the machines were too full, but even with a VERY small load, the machines weren't cooperating. This was only a problem, because we wanted to wash towels after a day by the pool. However, there were more than enough towels provided to not make this an issue.
The property managers Patrice and Angie were amazing! There were always available and answered any of our questions or concerns quickly. There was a huge rainstorm the first night we were there and a newly upgraded tile floor on the rooftop patio was leaking. A repairman was there that night, and returned the next morning to fix the issue. It never bothered us to begin with, but this showed the care the property was under. We never had any issues with this again.
The pool was clean and functional, and there were nice chairs provided (8).
The location was close to a very good conch stand, and a bus stop to get into town. It was a short walk from the property to both.
There is careful attention to safety which was a little scary - almost overdone - but at least careful measures were taken to ensure we never had any issues. However, our entire group found the property and the people to be unbelievably friendly, and never felt unsafe.
We hope to find ourselves at Stargaze in the future!
Stargaze villa is located in the western side of Nassau, Bahamas. Our gated community is next door to Gambier Village known as one of the first settlement of plantation workers.
