Overview

New Providence Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (sleeps 2-4)

This Deluxe one bedroom villa has a separate bedroom and full bath located upstairs from the main living area. The first floor with its own 1/2 bath, kitchen, living area and patio are perfect for preparing your own meals and just relaxing. For your convenience, there is also free local calling as well as free unlimited calling to USA, Canada, and the UK.

A waterfall swimming pool surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and palm trees is just steps from the condo. A children's pool is attached for the whole family to enjoy. Just next to the pool is Viola's Restaurant & Bar where you could enjoy a nice tropical drink or even have lunch or dinner. You could also watch your favorite sports team on one of the big screen TV's.

The complex is located on a beautiful white sand beach so you can enjoy the ocean waters or go for a nice walk.

In the evenings, just chill out and have dinner on your private patio or if you prefer, a short ten minute walk will take you to the Marina Village at the Atlantis where you can have dinner at one of the many restaurants there. You may also enjoy the nightly entertainment at Violas, especially the ever popular Karaoke night on Fridays.

This is a brand new listing and I am the same owner as listing #400501. Please refer to that listing number for reviews.

Best for a couple; okay for family of 3-4

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It has an updated kitchen, quaint patio, and cozy king bed with ample pillows. Our kids, ages 8 & 10, really enjoyed the pools. We rarely went to the beach because of that, but the beach sand was soft and groomed and the water clear when we went. We enjoyed eating breakfast out by the back pool's extended patio, overlooking the ocean. The condo comes with two adult-sized boogie boards, some snorkel sets, a beach chair, a raft, a circular inflatable tube, pool noodle, and a small cooler. The view through the windows is of the larger sized condos across the sidewalk, but it's a short walk to see a beautiful view of the ocean. The only issue we ran into was that the second twin air mattress couldn't be inflated due to lack of batteries in the pump, so we had one of the kids sleeping with us each night. Thankfully it was a king bed! I would say it's a great condo for a family if you don't mind sleeping in one room; the living room below doesn't offer much space for an air mattress, but a kid could sleep on the couch. Would be best suited for a couple.

The property is nice with fun architectural details. We appreciated there were people working there if we had any questions. It neighbors a public access to the beach, which is unfortunately littered with garbage and has some pushy salespeople operating out of it (pushing banana boat rides, jet ski rentals). Some of their boats and jet skis came uncomfortably close to us while swimming. If Sunrise put in a buoyed swimming area (all other resorts have them), that would help. Their outdoor shower needs fixing and barely works; we brought a lot of sand into pools and condo because of this. We walked to Atlantis several times and it took 5-10 minutes to get to restaurants and shops there. For groceries: You can take a ferry boat from dock under the inbound bridge (there are signs by that bridge) for $4/person into downtown Nassau; it drops you off by a grocery store (across from Burger King). Or, Super Value over outbound bridge and up a few blocks has best deals and selection; recommend taking a cab there.

Tip overall to all travelers: Discuss cab fare before you take a taxi. They supposedly have standard fares, but they don't use meters. The driver that picked us up from airport (ended up not being Steve's driver but one of her associates) charged us about $50 when we had thought it would be closer to $35 (this was more the standard fare).

Owner's Response: Hi Carrie and Fred, Glad you had a great time at my place on Paradise Island. It was a pleasure to host you. A few things about your review that I wanted to bring to your attention. If you had to use the two blow up mattresses, you must not have been aware of the Queen Sleeper Sofa downstairs. The sofa pulls out from underneath and is not your conventional sleeper sofa but it is more comfortable as there are no mattress springs. With regard to the second blow up mattress, someone must have bought it as I only have one really good one that blows up quickly by plugging it into the electrical outlet. With regard to taxi fares, I agree 100% that you should find out how much a taxi fare will be before you get into the cab as unfortunately some taxi drivers do try to take advantage at times. With regard to your fare from the airport to Sunrise or the Atlantis where you first stayed, the posted government rates are as follows: $34 for the first two people, $3 per additional person, $2 for a large suitcase and $1 for a medium suitcase or carry on. Backpacks are free. Therefore, you should have been charged a total of $44, which is which I think you told me you were charged after speaking with you today. I want to thank you for your wonderful review as it really helps me with renting my place out. I always appreciate everyones' comments so as I can be as good a host as possible. You and your family are always welcome back to my condo here on Paradise Island. Best regards and many thanks again, Steve

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this vacation. The Sunrise Beach Villa was very comfortable and in a great location. The on site restaurant Violas was perfect for lunch, dinner, and salsa dancing lessons! We could walk everywhere from this location including the beach, the ferry dock, the Atlantis and the Sivananda yoga retreat. Steve is a wonderful host and helped with any detail we asked about. The condo is clean, comfortable and quiet and the staff at Sunrise was so nice. We ordered groceries from Food2Go, our order was delivered right on time and they had everything we wanted.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Steve's condo in early February, and found everything just as explained and pictured. The condo is clean and comfortable with a full kitchen and is very close to the beach. We wanted a quiet get-away, and that's what we got. We particularly appreciated the privacy at the condo and the uncrowded beach. We walked a lot - on the beach, around the Atlantis property, through the Atlantis shopping village and even across the bridge and into Nassau. We enjoyed some excellent meals in Nassau and on Paradise Island at many of the restaurants Steve suggested. We ate a couple of meals at Viola's on the property and they were very good. Steve was an excellent host - very responsive and informative. This was a great choice for us!

Nice place, all the reviews and pictures tell the story.

  • 5 of 5

After searching for a new place to visit, we ended up reserving Steves condo. Everything was as promised. If I was to pick the best part of this stay it would be the beach, soft sand and warm water. The only issue was that Steve did not tell us he was a Montreal Canadians fan, that might have been a deal breaker, I had a hard time drinking my coffee out of the Canadians mug, or using the koosie, or looking at the picture in the bedroom. GO Bruins!

Nice Spot Great Owner!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Steve's condo for 2 weeks. This was our first trip to the Bahamas but Steve answered all our questons. He sent us lists of favorite restaurants and explained many different things. He had his taxi driver pick us up from the airport and we stopped for groceries (via Steve's suggestion). Groceries and alcohol are a sticker shock. Be prepared. That said, the condo is 2 minutes away from a beautiful beach. I walked it everyday and virtually had it to myself. The pools were never crowded and we met really nice people who we ended up doing things with. We walked to the Atlantis each day to work out (about 10 minutes away) and enjoyed entertainment there too. The condo is located close to everything you will need. The only con probably was the steep spiral staircase. My bags weighed 50 pounds so the hubby had a job carrying them up to the bedroom! The pros definitely outweigh this con. The biggest pro was the owner, Steve, and his willingness to help make our stay as nice as it could be.

Nice Place!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Steve's condo and it was a great alternative to a hotel or all inclusive resort. The condo's amenities were more than adequate and Steve is a very helpful and pleasant host. This was our first trip to this area of the Bahamas/ Caribbean other than cruise day trips and this accommodation option provided a good base for exploring the island.
