Having lived among the Bahamian people for many years, my husband and I wanted the option of returning to visit our numerous Bahamian friends in the area; also to have the option of escaping the rigors of a UK winter as opportunity permits. In opening our home to others, it is hoped they will be able to experience not only the exceptional warm and sunny climate but also the warmth and friendliness of the Bahamian people.
We chose this property because of the exceptional and stunning views of the ocean just a few yards from our double balcony which faces both north and west. It is a residential complex with excellent facilities and within easy reach of all places of interest.
Excellent place to bring family and feel safe. We loved watching the cruise ships go back and forth from Atlantis to Florida. Water was very turquoise! We snorkeled off rocks-reefs by sunset pool and saw many colorful fish! We also snorkeled in the ocean at the private beach. Saw a southern ray from the pier there and a spotted eagle ray from the sunrise pool- overlooking the wall! Snorkel trip a must: Stuart Cove's Dive/Snorkel Adventures! Awesome! Also a trip by ferry from Paradise Island to Blue Lagoon for the day is great: Snorkel on private beach, kayak in water as clear as a pool, eat a hamburger and BBQ chicken lunch, lay under palm trees in hammocks to rest, swim with the dolphins and/or sea lions, slide and play on the inflatables, etc. Great day. I'm glad we didn't rent a car! Roads are crazy-cars drive fast and come around the bends from the opposite side of the road! We saved a bunch of money too! Lots of people , like us, staying around Cable Beach, had the Jetney Bus pick them up and take them to wherever: market, restaurants, shopping in Nassau. It only costs a couple of dollars. Tipping is very important here. Everyone asks for tips or expects tips. Bring cash for shopping (Nassau), bus, and tips. Electricity will go off for an hour or so, once in awhile, so "no problem mon", it comes back on and "everytin is good"! Furthermore, Barbara Rolle was the best! She helped us from day one! She took us to the market, brought us water, helped us with little things, and also took us to the airport when we left to fly home! We sure were spoiled on this vacation at Delaport. Beautiful Mediterranean style buildings overlooking a turquoise sea! We'll never forget it!
This was the first time I traveled and didn't stay with family or friends. We heard that food was costly on these islands, so we packed a cooler full, and cooked every morning and night. The bus took us out for adventures every day, unless we needed a break, then we took our snorkels down to the water and did some leisurely exploring. We found a conch nest, and some interesting fish. This was a safe place for us girls. The security guards were great. And the maintenance people helped us to feel welcome and at home. Even the bus drivers were very friendly. I love this place. Were it not for the price of food, I'd consider moving here! And this apartment was great part of this wonderful experience, of course! Thank you Jill and Barbera!
Stayed for 6 days and did not want to leave. The view is amazing! The apartment was welcoming. The kitchen was equipped with everything, but groceries. There were nearby restaurants, bar & grills, and beaches. The bus stop was right outside the gate. The wait wasn't any longer than 4--5 minutes. Ms. Butler and Bernard (security guards) went out of their way for us ladies to make sure we were safe and had transportation. Both pools were awesome. The closest pool was located right next to the building and right in front of the ocean front. The second pool was right next to the prier and ocean. The views was breathtaking. Everything was convenient. I absolutely can't wait to get back for another week.
We loved the condo and the breathtaking view of the ocean! Barbara was extremely helpful and welcoming. This is one of the nicest locations on the island, convenient to everything.
The surrounding grounds are well kept and inviting. There are several restaurants close by such as the Blue Sail and we also enjoyed many home cooked meals bringing our dinner onto the terrace as the waves rolled in. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone desiring a relaxing getaway.
We stayed for 7 days at the beginning of July. The apartment was spacious and well appointed. The ocean view was amazing. The beach on the complex was very nice and we went there many times. Being on the ground floor was very convenient.
The location was perfect for us. We caught the #10 bus right outside the gates, and never waited more than 5 minutes. It was a lot of fun meeting the locals and experiencing the culture. This bus route was very convenient--it took us to a number of attractions and beaches as well as to the downtown for $1.25 each way. We took a ferry to Atlantis from downtown for $4 each, and a cab back for the same price. We walked to a number of local restaurants and bought groceries nearby for a few meals.
I would stay here again, as it provided everything we wanted at a fair price.
We stayed here for 8 days for our Honeymoon. This apartment was the ideal location and had anything you could need, including amazing views. We sat on the deck and watched the sunset every night. The Sun deck connected to the Ocean and Pool was are favorite part (There aren't good pictures of it). You're close enough to go into town to see the tourist attractions but far enough from the hustle and bustle. We loved Heritage Park, the history, and snorkeling. Love Beach was awesome too.
There were a few hiccups with our stay beyond anyone's control and Jill and Michael were amazing with getting everything worked up. We would defiantly come back and hope to for a future anniversary!
Can't wait to come Back!
