About Mackay

We live in Toronto, Canada and we love to travel and meet people. We have spent many enjoyable vacations in Nassau and the warmth of the island has always embraced us.

Mackay purchased this house in 2010

Why Mackay chose New Providence

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 watching 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.

What makes this house unique

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 walking to nearby ocean.

SPECIAL THANKS TO MR SCHARAD LIGHTBOURNE at (scharadL . com) for the beautiful photographs of Stargaze villa for the websites. We encourage our guests to contact him if you are celebrating memorable moments and would like to capture the event.

Nowhere else to be in the middle of Hurricane Matthew

  • 5 of 5

Our family will always be thankful to the owners of Stargaze villa. We got stuck in Nassau after getting there halfway through our 2 weeks vacation. We had to leave the southern island once the evacuate notice was given and our flight out of Nassau was canceled. My daughter and 2 grandkids was so terrified but we had to keep faith that god answers prayers. When my son-in-law told us he got us a place to stay we got in a taxi and was brought to the villa which was close to the airport but also too close to the ocean, That made me very concern but my wife kept the family calm. The owners were so informative. They got food, ice, an igloo and drinking water to us and the villa was equipped with candles, a water tank, and most of all hurricane shutters. The property manager and neighbor Jason came and put the shutters down, show us how to use the water tank and the gas stove.

For my family first hurricane experience we felt safe and secured. We watch the winds and waves from the balcony when the power and running water went off we took advantage of the other fun stuff to do, the various board games with the kids, I read 2 interesting books with my wife and had hot cooked meals. The owners talk to us before the power went out and they gave us tips on conserving our cellphones and laptop battery life. When your grandkids say best vacation ever to all their friends at school all you can do is be grateful and express your gratitude. Family Memories stay with you for a lifetime. Thank you thank you from my family.

The worst experience we ever had

  • 1 of 5

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.

Just Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing! Fantastic host too

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect Villa for Families or Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

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.
