About Rhonda Grant

I am a single female teacher and I enjoy Swimming, Scuba Diving and Tennis. I try to give my guests a taste of the Native life so I introduce them to some of my good friends who will cook some Bahamian dishes for them. I also try to give them as much information about my Island and our culture.

Rhonda Grant purchased this studio in 2012

Why Rhonda Grant chose Nassau

My property is in a very good neighbourhood and safe and quiet. My neighbours are very friendly.

What makes this studio unique

My house was bought by my mother and I and she is now deceased and I just love living here because of the neighbours and the location.

Taste grand Bahama hospitality in a lovely smaller setting!

  • 4 of 5

Rhonda is an amazing person, we greatly enjoyed our stay with her. She does not hesitate to make sure you have everything you need and treats you like family. The accommodation is simple but has everything you need (kitchen, bed, shower, lounge outside by flowers) . It is in great location, walking distance to beach, fish fry/ good food, and easy to use / great bus system to get to many beaches, downtown, etc. Rhonda and her friends were full of great advice about the island and Bahamas in general (where to snorkel, scuba, best beaches, food, etc) and her friends cooked us amazing Bahamaian food! Better than any restaurant we found, which is saying something as the restaurants are quite good. If you are looking for a commercial polished resort- this is not your cup of tea, but if you enjoy socializing with great , down to earth people, getting to know the culture and smaller bits of Bahamas and just a great deal for your money, look no further than Rhonda's happy abode.

Best Vacation Month Ever!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed her for 26 wonderful days. Rhonda was a gracious host ,very sweet and kind and even made us Margaritas one evening!! My husband and i enjoyed the peace and quiet most evenings on the patio playing cards and listening to music and enjoying the beautiful Saunders beach during the daytime, which is a short walk from Rhonda's home. Rhonda was always happy to answer our questions about Island Life and our questions about the strange native fruits that we don't have in Minnesota. We would love to come re-visit and continue our exploration of Beautiful Nassau... Gina and Shane Poppy

This was truly a home away from home. Rhonda is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Rhonda place is truly a home away from home. Rhonda is great. She is so hospitable and such a nice, funny, kind woman. She is close to everywhere. We arrived and she took us to the grocery store and liquor store right away. Her home is in a nice safe neighborhood and we also got to meet her friends as she took u s to a NEW YEARS eve party at her friends house and we got to enjoy Bahamian friends, music, food it was great. I always felt safe and secure . Rhonda is full of great information about the islands and where to go and what to do. ANDDDDDDDD she is also an Uber driver so that worked out PERFECT for those times you needed . The only thing I didn't like is the fact I could not stay longer. Rhonda thank you so much we had a blast.....and say hi to Oreo........Pam & Jack Meaney

Really good value, convenient location

  • 3 of 5

We used Rhonda's little flat-let for 3 weeks whilst doing a placement at the hospital. It was perfect for this. Very unfortunately Rhonda was unavoidably absent during our stay, but we did briefly meet her - what a nice lady! The flat is "bijoux" and a bit basic, but had everything we needed and it was a great base for what we needed. Would def recommend for 1 Person or a couple doing what we were doing! N.B Rhonda has dogs which I am sure are nice, if you like dogs..... Thanks Rhonda!

Rhonda's house was welcoming clean and had a great location to beaches and buses to downtown Nassau.

  • 5 of 5

We both loved our stay at Rhonda's home. We really were made to feel comfortable and the room itself was spacious and homely, equipped with all you need. Rhonda herself is a lovely host who made bookings for taxis, gave great tips and even demonstrated cooking conch which we got to sample one evening. Overall our stay was fabulous and I would recommend Rhonda's home to anyone.

Authentic Bahamian life in a convenient neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Rhonda's Studio retreat is a short walk to Saunders Beach, the Arawak Fish Fry and the main street of West Bay, where frequent buses provide transport to downtown Nassau (east) or past Cable Beach (west) for only $1.25/person. The neighbourhood was usually quiet after dark and felt safe during the day (we don't go out much at night). We stayed for 4 days during the 4th week of March.

The studio room, adjoining Rhonda's sturdy little home (built circa 1969), can accommodate 2 people inside, with an outside patio and lounge chairs for stretching out to relax. Screened openings on 3 sides allowed plenty of fresh air to waft through, making the fan and A/C unnecessary. Basic cooking facilities allowed us to prepare breakfasts and light dinners in the studio. Rhonda's Bahamian decor gave the studio a homey, lived-in feeling. It was clean and bug-free during our entire visit.

Rhonda had maps and other printed material waiting upon our arrival and provided helpful information about where to get groceries and Bahamian meals. We were looking for accommodations that would give us a small glimpse into the everyday life of Bahamian families. Rhonda's studio provided exactly that. Thank you, Rhonda!
