Why Mary/Peter Enns chose Nassau
If you're feeling adventurous, experience some amazing snorkeling right in front of the property and 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 sun sets 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" In our garden area we have a swing and playhouse that has recently been remodeled and fitted out with a full kitchen, with parents in mind; we have a comfortable patio set allowing parents to wait in comfort while their food is being prepared and cups of tea are made. 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 Turn your holiday into a nature hunt, we have recently added helpful laminated identification cards showing all the Bahamian sea life you are likely to come across on the beach, in our ocean and in our rock pools, feel free to take them to the beach but please return them to the apartments for other guests to use. Please note that over the festive season I only take bookings for a weeks stay starting 16th Dec - 6th Jan.
What makes this Apartment unique
If you’re here to relax, a long stretch of sandy beach can be accessed through a gate at Sunset Cove stepping right out onto where you can lay in the sand or take a dip in the turquoise blue ocean. Alternatively, chill out in one of our hammocks under a palm tree on our ‘sandy sun deck’ with a cocktail and let the world drift by. We have picnic tables and barbecues available for your use and beach toys available to keep the little ones occupied. Some of our apartments feature direct access to the sun deck from your lounge or bedroom. On the sun deck, steps lead down to the ocean where guests can make use of our 4 kayaks or try our sea hammocks which are very popular. We are 5 mins from Breezes, Sandals and Melia at any one of these resorts you can buy day passes to make use of their facilities for the day we are also only 5 mins by bus from the largest casino in the Caribbean Baha Mar If you fancy a little bit more activity on your vacation we are happy to recommend some excursions and nearby activity centers which are sure to keep you entertained. We also have a two man kayak available which you are welcome to take out to sea for a mini-adventure, and jet-ski hire is also available from right outside the property. We are on the main tourist bus route no need to hire a car, $1.25 and 20 mins takes you into downtown Nassau passing Sandals, Breezers, Melia the Fish Fry, and Baha Mar running right along the island, taking you into the historic downtown area of Nassau and all the important places of interest along the way.

Absolutely LOVED the apartment! I will definitely be back!!
With the ocean view just a few steps away felt awesome.....place was clean and comfortable
Every thing went well we enjoyed it only thing is that the morning of our departure I found out the a coconut fell into the windshield of our rental car and shattered it that the company even I purchased coverage is churching me for it....but other than that it went really well
Perfect location for relaxation!
A stay at the Sapodilla Apartment was the perfect end to our Bahamas trip! The quiet oceanfront location with hammocks was great for relaxation and sunsets. The apartment is big, well stocked, and comfortable. It was great to be close to Nesbitts and the conch salad stall for local food as well as on the main bus line. It made getting into Nassau, Love Beach, shopping, and restaurants easy and inexpensive. I would definitely stay here again!
no frills, but perfect for us
Overall Sunset Cove was great. We really enjoyed staying there, using the kayaks, snorkeling, and the sunsets definitely did not disappoint. It is as advertised, a no frills 2br apartment; so don't expect anything over the top as far as creature comforts are concerned.
If considering sunset cove, price in a vehicle. While you have access to a bus stop just down the street, the walk along the road can be a little hairy; especially with kids. Also, there is a lot of road noise as west bay street is the main road heading into Nassau. There isn't too much in the way of food that is truly in walking distance, but a bus ride will get you pretty close to where you want to head to.
Cabs are outrageously expensive, so if heading to the grocery store ~3 miles up the road, expect the cost to be about 35$ round trip with them waiting for you for 20 minutes. Paradise island for a family of 4 is $80, and the airport is $30.
If I had it to do over again, I'd rent a vehicle; its completely worth the convenience and i'd probably come close to breaking even between cab and bus fare. Also, another thing to note is there isn't an outdoor shower or hose to rinse off after hitting the beach, and be wary of the section of beach closest to the road; as we came across a lot of broken glass. Its public, not private, but never crowded and we had the best snorkeling right there.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are happy to see that overall you enjoyed your stay with us and the family enjoyed the snorkeling and kayaks, free for guest use. As for "creature comforts" I am not sure what you mean, you had what anyone would expect A/C, full kitchen, washer /dryer, flat screen TV, phone, free wi-fi & your own personal BBQ on your patio just yards from the ocean. Just a few other points I would like to clarify, you don’t have to walk down the street to access the bus, the bus will stop directly in front of the apartments, all you have to do is put out your hand, it will also take you anywhere along West Bay Street and into downtown Nassau for $1.25. I do agree it is better to take advantage of the taxi we offer guests on arrival, which will collect you from the airport, take you shopping for 20 mins while it waits for you and then brings you to SC all for $35 for 2 people... $45 for 4 people. Nessbits the restaurant right across the road is a favorite of ours, the food is very basic Bahamian I admit, but most guests love it, big portions reasonable prices, I agree for something fancier you would have to go to Blue Sail or the Poop Deck or into Sandyport, where there is Spritz or Twisted Lime all within walking distance that other guests have used.
Lastly not sure how you missed the shower that is on the wall in the parking area just as you come off beach and there is also a hose that people use, just after you come in the gate on the left under the poinciana tree.
We stayed here for 8 days. It was clean. We felt safe. Views are AMAZING!! We used the kayaks and snorkled in front of the condo. We felt like we were in the perfect location. Not far from town and not far from other beaches. If you choose this location you will not be disappointed.
Exactly as advertised! Love the beach backyard/garden with the ocean behind it!
They're clear about how there is some wear from hurricanes, but we enjoyed the price far more than the little bit of past water damage, which is all cleaned up and painted so it looks just fine now!
My wife is particular about cleanliness, and she was pretty happy, as it was very clean! Beds and furniture are all in good shape, and all the appliances work well. We did a few breakfasts here and some leftover goodies for lunch one day in the microwave.
We took advantage of the Enns's offer to have Cheryl's taxi fetch us from the airport and stop at the grocery on the way to the appt. I forgot to get beer and wine at the grocery and Mary was so kind to bring us over some of Peter's beer, the local Kalik beer (a bit light for my tastes, but didn't stop me from drinking plenty of it while there!), and even a cold bottle of white for my wife out of their own fridge! Then Peter dropped off another 6-pack later that evening, so I didn't need to get any more until the day before we left and then just to repay the Enns's kindness. As it turns out, beer and wine (and liquor) are not sold in groceries, just liquor stores, as a tip to future visitors. And there's a liquor store next to the grocery that Cheryl's taxi stops at for you, so stock up there before you make it "home" to the Sapodilla.
Nesbitt's was nice, just across the street, good local fare and juke box, but we were damp from a brief rain so opted to sit outside on a covered patio and had our first of many conch fritters (yum!).
We didn't rent a car, and did fine, nice not having to find parking anywhere. The jitney is the prime travel, just $1.25 per person into town and the #10 and #12 both take you all the way in, will pick you up from anywhere on that main road (west bay) and drop you anywhere just yell "bus stop!" and tell the driver where you want off. It works!
There are sea kayaks to borrow, and beach gear, too -- taking the kayaks just 100yds down from the patio to the beach was a great way to travel (my daughter and I in a 2-man raced my wife and son in their 1-man kayaks :)
Mary, Peter, thanks for the great hospitality! Only constructive feedback I'd offer is add a flat-spatula for non-stick pans to the kitchen wares, and put a luggage stand in each bedroom, so we can have our suitcases off the floor, but otherwise all was awesome! The recommendations in the binder you provided were great! We did the barefood sailing snorkel cruise and loved it!
