Large and lovely home for the 12 of us
We were 12 of us for a 5 day trip and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house was clean and well appointed. Plenty of light around the home at night. A crib and high chair was ready when we got there. Air conditioning was very effective. Plenty of bottled water was provided. And Shawn was very friendly and responsive to our requests. For example, he delivered some coffee filters we needed first thing in the morning and one night he set out the grill before we got home so it would be ready for us after a trip to the supermarket. (Beware: food is pricey on the island, higher than what we are used to in the USA.) The home is in a quiet residential area with little traffic, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.
We hired Bernoid, a driver that Shawn recommended, for the 5 days. He had a 12 passenger van that fit all of us at once, including luggage. Otherwise we would have had to rent 2 vehicles and dealt with driving on the left side of the road. Transportation is required if you want to got to the supermarket or to one of the resorts on the island. Bernoid's fee included all gas and tolls. He picked us up whenever we wanted, including transportation from and to the airport, and was a great resource for information about the island.
Shawn's place is highly recommended! Thank you, Shawn!
It was so great hosting this wonderful family. Thanks for your stay and beautiful review.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Large Space for a big family
My family stayed here because of the square footage, and the beachfront (although you have to cross a road to get to the beach). The house was large and spacious. We were surprised with the size of the loft space. We had four children on the third floor but it could have easily accommodated 8 people on that floor alone. Shawn is an absolutely amazing host and I would give him six stars if I was just reviewing him. If we had a problem he arrived promptly and resolved any issues. Once we had a problem with the AC and the WIFi and both times Shawn promptly fixed the issues by resetting the equipment. You definitely need a driver if you are staying here. We are glad we decided to at the last minute, because the location is about 20minutes from town. Our driver Brenoid was amazing! He even was there at 5am in the morning once after being up all night (it was New Years Eve) and was an excellent source of information about Nassau.
Our only issue was that the beach was not really a beach to layout on if it was high tide. It's okay during low tide. However, if you just want to snorkel or swim it was perfect. The microwave wasn't working properly, but a few buttons worked so we operated it that way. Also the WiFi didn't work on the second and third floors so we had to go to the first floor to get on the internet.
Not sure we could have found anything on the island with this amount of space, and for this price. It was a great stay for all.
Thank you for your stay and review. I took care of the WiFi and microwave.
Awesome and quiet
We loved our trip and this house. We got this for the seclusion. Having the driver was good because it is a solid 20 min or more from Atlantis and the main tourist stuff. The house was great. Shawn was awesome and helpful. I thought there would be more of a “beach” but with the tides that effected it. However, the last two days we went down and snorkeled out in front of the house and the rocks created a reef and we saw a ton of fish. So it was more fun than I initially thought.
The ac in the house was excellent. Tons of room. Had a great time
It was a pleasure hosting such gracious and wonderful guests. Thanks so much for your stay and beautiful review.
Lovely house - everything as advertised!
We had a group of 4 families (10 adults and 8 kids) rent out both the Oceanspray and Seabreeze homes from Shawn for a 6 day trip to Nassau. So glad we found this house. First off, everything was as advertised/presented. Beautiful CLEAN house in a residential (not touristy) neighborhood with all the amenities and space we needed across the street from the beach. Fully stocked kitchen, linens, etc. Beds for everyone. In fact, the top floor is just a huge room with a bunch of beds so the kids slept up there. The beach across the street was lovely in the morning and at most times was empty (like a private beach for us). The grocery store was 5 minutes drive away and the prices were reasonable (compared to the touristy part of the island). We would generally eat one meal per day in the house and one out so it worked out. We brought some ingredients from home and bought the rest from the supermarket nearby and there was plenty of equipment and appliances in the kitchen to make meals. But the part that really was the cherry on top was the owner Shawn was the best. He did everything he could to make our stay as pleasant as possible and checked in on us several times and never hesitated when we asked him for anything. As a local he had great advice about what to do on the island. One example of his dedication to make our stay as comfortable as possible is about a week before the trip I checked with him to find out if the houses had 2 pack n play cribs (we had 2 babies) and he replied back saying he only had 1 but would try to get another. Within a day he replied back and said he found one. I don't know if he bought one for us or got from a friend but that was very thoughtful of him as things like that are not so easy to access on the island. Our group likes to explore so we drove around the island exploring the beaches (Coral Beach and Jaws Beach were our favorites) and taking a few snorkel trips (ask the guy renting jetskis at Coral Beach to arrange one for you if you have group) and it was so comforting to come home to our Oceanspray/Seabreeze houses and take showers (another thing - houses NEVER ran out of hot water with 18 people taking showers/baths simultaneously/in a row), warm up a nice dinner, put the kids to bed, and put our wet stinky clothes in the laundry while we drink coffee and relax outside while listening to the ocean waves lapping against the shore. Perfect for us!
Simply one of the best families I've ever met.
Thanks for your stay and such a beautiful review.
Looking forward to the next visit.
A great relaxing spot
Family traveled to the Bahamas for a nice quiet break in the action and this is exactly what we got. Watching the moonlight across the water, hanging out at the beach and cruising around was our mantra. Convenient, clean and a great host.
Some guests are memorable. What a great family. I would love to see them again.
The owner is a great host!!!
We had a great stay! The owner his a GREAT host!!!
