We are conveniently located 10 mins from the airport

The #10 bus that stops right outside Sunset Cove by the Conch Stall, will take you all along the main tourist route and into downtown Nassau for $1.25 passing by Sandals, Breezers, Melia where you can buy day passes to access their facilities for the day should you wish, only five mins away from Sunset Cove

Take the stress out of arriving so that you can be ready to relax and enjoy your oceanfront holiday as soon as you arrive, for just $35 we can arrange for a taxi to greet you at the airport, take you for your first 30 minute shop whilst it waits, and then brings you to Sunset Cove where we will be waiting to greet you with the keys.

The beach that belongs to Sunset Cove is accessed through a gate on the property with direct beach access to a beautiful quiet sandy beach with stunning turquoise waters, with sunshades, deck chairs and coolers available for guest use.

If you're feeling adventurous, experience some amazing snorkelling right in front of the property , feel free to take a stroll along to say hello to Buddy our Green Amazonian parrot, who will be happy you stopped for a chat! He has several phrases to include "Pretty Boy" "Hello" "Goodbye" and has unfortunately mastered a perfect wolf whistle and of course, remember to be outside in time for those amazing sunset views that we are named after they are simply breathtaking, we have the perfect location to witness the green flash as the sunsets over the ocean, something considered to be a sign of good luck to witness and believed by some cultures to be a "Glimpse of Paradise"

Nesbitts, a small local restaurant is located right across the road, offers great local Bahamian food, and some good old fashioned music is guaranteed from their very popular jukebox, a short 5 min walk is the Blue Sail & Deck Restaurants both very popular

A short stroll west of the property will take you to the European bakery which produces delicious pastries for breakfast and lunch, and the Pink Octopus restaurant

Don’t feel like cooking, we have a wonderful catering company that we use, they will bring you specially prepared meals to be served in the comfort of your own home or dine at the picnic table on the sandy deck area while the sun goes down, starts from $50 per person, comment from the last guest who used them “That was awesome! Way too much food!”

Fabulous place to stay, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and in a great location. We loved having access to both the sandy beach for swimming and the rocky shoreline for exploring. The snorkeling out front was awesome (we saw an eel, puffer fish and numerous other fish), we also enjoyed taking out the kayaks. The sunsets from our condo (Eleuthera) were amazing. The owners recommended some nearby restaurants for dinner and each of the ones we tried were fantastic. We had a car and we were able to get around from this location quite easily. You can also catch the bus into town from next door. The property is very secure with locked gates and a security guard at night. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this property.

Very Lovely Waterfront View

  • 5 of 5

My grandmother and I wanted a unique island getaway and that is exactly what we found at Sunset Cove. The apartments have a private sandy deck in the back with lawn chairs and hammocks. There are kayaks for use as well, and I took one out with my snorkel gear and had a blast checking out the local aquatic life :) If you would like a sandy beach, there is a small (and not often frequented) little strip of beach just west of the apartments. The apartments are also only 10 mins from the Airport, and near to a large supermarket. We decided to get groceries and cook most of our meals, but there are great restaurants nearby as well - particularly the Blue Sail. Mary and Peter were also very lovely hosts. Whenever I had a question they were just a phone call away. If you are interested in Scuba diving there is a free shuttle to Stuart’s Cove (I did the afternoon shark dive, best dive I have been on so far). I also had a massage by Samantha from Vokos Spa, highly recommended (they bring the massage table to you)! All and all a very memorable trip and I would definitely like to go back and visit sometime in the near future!

Wake up to Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean everything. Easy to check in. Thanks for amenities like the kayaks, buggy boards, sand toys, and snorkeling. There is also a beach in walking distance perfect for the children. My children enjoyed sleeping in the loft. That was an unexpected surprise. We will definitely stay here again Lord willing.

Great holiday home with amazing sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 10 days staying at the Sunset Cove apartments. Mary and Peter were wonderful hosts who made sure all of our needs in the apartment were met. The beach that is steps from the apartments is rarely used by others and has soft flour-like sand, the sunsets were breathtaking, and the location is ideal for further exploring of the island. We rented a car to go to Love and Jaws beaches, which were fabulous for taking our children, as those beaches are shallow and warm with nothing for waves and great for snorkelling. The grocery store is conveniently close by. Overall, we had a holiday that is full of great memories and photos! We would recommend Sunset Cove apartments without reservation.

Bahama vacation

  • 4 of 5

Peter and Mary were very nice in getting us taken care of when we arrived. They had arranged a pick up for us at the airport and they would also take us back. We were able to stop for groceries on our way to our unit which was very helpful. We didn't see much of them after that but Peter wasn't hard to find.We had the Sapodilla unit, I wanted a roll away bed or some alternative to sleep on one night because of a restless husband and Peter accommodated with an air mattress which was fine. My only other comments would be bring swimmy shoes the beach is a little rocky/Shelly and the beach is off to the left, a little hike over but ok. Not the best swimming. Also the kitchen could have been better stocked with glasses, plates and cutlery, no kettle either. Our ensuit bathroom curtain definitely needed a new one. Overall though nice place good location for quite. Great view and lovely sitting area outside overlooking the ocean. Nice area to get to know fellow travelers , we had fun ☺

Owner's Response: Hi Linda, I am curious to know why your husband came to our door the day you left three days after you arrived and told my husband everything was fine, no problems, the apartment was great, you were only leaving as you really wanted a pool for your guests ? If you had told us of any problems with towels ?... which I don't believe, ....we would immediately have replaced them, as you know we live in the apartment below the one you were in (which wasn't actually the Abaco apartment) If you had a problem with there being no pool, we could have discussed it, even though we had never,... ever... stated there was a pool and we would have refunded you. If you were disappointed in the fact that a cat 4 hurricane Mathew had taken out part of our beach in October after you booked and you would now need to walk to the far end of the beach to access a really sandy area was a problem, we could have discussed it and refunded you. The sandy deck area with hammocks was perfectly untouched The price reflects that the apartment is not high end granite and marble, the cost of a holiday over New Year is $50 per person per day for a 3 bedroom apartment that sleeps six with a separate dining room and ocean views from every room, if this wasn't good enough for you personally, we could have discussed it and we could have refunded you. I have over 65 perfect, amazing reviews on Flipkey and Tripadvisor not so many on Homeaway as I have only just started listing with, them check them out I just wonder who is telling the truth you or your husband, I guess it would have been embarrassing for you to have to tell the guests that you were expecting to join you, you had messed up and there was no pool but why take your bitterness out on us ? I of course have also left a review for you as guests, that contrary to yours is factual, one star for communication, one star for honesty and I would never accept a booking from you again. Kind Regards Mary & Peter

Guestbook comments from the manager


Lake Dallas, Texas

Great location!

Left on Jun 17, 2017 for a stay in Jun 2017

We were in Nassau for a wedding and stayed at Sunset Cove/Paradise Properties. We loved every minute of our stay! The location was great & away from the busy tourist scenes but close enough to access, if you wanted to. The beach is right outside your door and was wonderful! The Grocery store was a brief jitney ride away (#10) and also available to take you around the island. We were a bit hesitate to rent the property because we usually stay at a hotel but we are so elated that we deterred from our norm! The property was well secured with an Security Guard on site 6a to 6p. Thank you again Mary & Peter for such a comfortable vacation stay! I highly recommend this rental property; you will not be disappointed!
