Small, dusty, inconvenient, and noisy rental

  • 1 of 5

I would not recommend this unit and it does not meet minimum standards. I travel a lot and this was the worse rental so far on vrbo. Owner did not attempt to repair the issues with the toilet or blind when I reached out to him.

Below are the issues with this rental:

-kitchen faucet drips

-stove wasn't cleaned with food stains from prior tenants

-sand found on the couch

-very old furniture. couch cushions torn

-night stand in bedroom wobbly and ready to break apart

-outlets are missing covers so electrical cable exposed and dangerous for kids

-living room blind missing 6 individual panels; blind controller broken; so difficult to sleep on the fold out couch as sun shines in

-toilet moves when sat on and toilet lift chain was broken so it will not flush. I had to put my hands inside the toilet top to flush the toilet

-shower soap holder broken and had a sharp edge that could cut someone

-shower water not staying hot so only 1-2 persons get hot water

-kitchen with lots of dust on the cabinets and he charges a high cleaning fee which isn't being put to use

-pool is dirty and unhealthy to swim in. Never saw anyone in the pool

-dish washing soap or bathroom soap are not provided

-lots of noise outside in the morning from dogs, construction, the AC is loud, and traffic

-many of these complaints are also listed by other vacationers from 1-2 years ago which means the owner has not made efforts to fix them in all that time. We were attracted by the low price but in this case it was not worth the savings.

This place needs to meet minimum standards and it doesn't. Beware!!!

Perfect Location, Great Unit, Clean, and Affordable!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week at this property over the New Year 2016-2017. Michael was a pleasure to work with leading up to the rental (we made our reservation a good 6 months prior to our arrival due to the time of year we were going to be in the Bahamas) and he arranged for us to get picked up at the airport. CJ, our taxi driver, was wonderful and gave us many tips on places to go and when to go (for example, security at Atlantis leaves at 5 or 6 pm so after that time you can get into the aquarium and Atlantis resort outside for an evening stroll). Taxi ride cost was $35, which was cheaper than our travel book had indicated. We were able to call a day prior to our departure and arrange for a pickup from the unit, which was also very helpful.

The unit was clean and Michael had no issue with us checking in a little early. It really was just a place for us to spend the nights as we were otherwise out at the beach, diving, doing a Rose Island day excursion, exploring Nassau, or walking around in the evening. We felt completely safe and walked everywhere on Paradise Island, even at 2 am when we came back from Atlantis on New Year's (streets are well lit and vehicles are really good about stopping for pedestrians). The complex that the unit is in was not quite maintained, but we really were pleased with the unit that Michael owned. We did encounter some minor issues, like that the blinds in the living room wouldn't close all the way, one of the bedroom windows wouldn't crank open, and the water heater is smaller than the ones we are used to here in the US (we started to just turn off the water while sudsing up to make sure we had enough hot water for the two of us, which worked perfectly fine and we didn't mind doing that). Otherwise all of the appliances worked and had no issues controlling thermostat or getting the TV to work. The unit does have internet.

The unit is in a wonderful location, about a 5 minute walk to the Cabbage Beach public entrance and 5-10 minutes from restaurants, a small grocery store, and the ferry terminal (boats to Nassau leave about every half hour and cost $4/person one way). We enjoyed going to Anthony's since it was more on the affordable end of restaurants and they had a great happy hour every day from 4-6 (2 for 1 drinks and $7 appetizers).

In all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. It is a great alternative to the expensive resorts, was clean, and in a fantastic location!

Inside is beautiful. The front is good but the back to get in could use a little upgrade.

Overall was good except the neighbors tried to tow my car. They thought that it didn't belong

Very nice accomodation

  • 2 of 5

The condo was well taken care of..clean and neat. However, some of the bed pillows were stained and undesirable. others looked brand new.

There was a hot water problem and certain times of day there was little or no hot water. Two people could not shower immediately after each .other.

The pool was a joke. It needed a good cleaning and had no lawn chairs to sunbathe..

The veranda was very nice and had a nice view of the street and surrounding foliage..

The outside building was very unappealing but had beautiful landscaping./

Everything was within a 15 minute walk.........the beach, Atlantis, restaurants and grocery store

The T.V. did not work ,

The instrument used for heat and cool was very hard to figure out. It somehow did not make sense

.

We had a terrible time trying to turn on the coffee maker...until we figured out that it was not plugged in. haha It worked just fine as did all the appliances.

We had a very nice stay and the living room furniture was v comfy and cozy...Felt very safe in the neighborhood.

Poor

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at this unit, March 20 - 24, 2016. The unit is nicely located on Paradise Island and an easy walk to Atlantis and Cabbage beach. That said, as you approach the unit for your very first time, you are most likely going to expect more than what you'll find. You'll pass numerous well kept looking buildings along the road before you get to Paradise Regency. You'll know Paradise Regency when you approach, as it's the first unkept and the trashiest looking building you'll see.

Exiting your transportation from the street, you'll view the buildings garbage bins that most choose to use as a location to place their garbage, not the bin itself.

Entering the outdoor common area, you'll see a pool that might have been maintained last prior to Y2K. There is no need to purchase BBQ supplies, unless of course you are able to pick up the BBQ pieces and somehow get it back together and working.

Entering the unit, you'll notice that it is nicer looking than the complex and the common pool area. Don't let that fool you, the unit is as unkept as the rest of what you've seen. Where shall I start? Upon our entry the unit was still dirty from the last occupants. We did arrive early in the day however, were not made aware that the place would not be clean yet. As well, somewhat our fault, we were not aware that smoking was allowed. As non-smokers the place had a wonderful aroma of an overused and full ashtray.

The bedroom ceiling fan worked, if you can stand the clicking sound coming from it. The cabinet door above the fridge was falling off. The kitchen faucet had a constant drip of water. The coffee table under the TV and one of the bedside tables if bumped into most likely would fall apart like pulling the wrong Jenga tile.

The place has minimum living supplies for anything other than a guest or two. You'll need to wash every dish after using or you'll have nothing.

In fairness, the unit was as plain as what I read for reviews. What it wasn't was well kept and nice. Location was OK. I would not recommend this place to anyone. I would suggest spending a bit more and finding a much more desirable spot.

Certainly the most positive part of our stay was Michael the owner. He was great to deal with.

Owner's Response: Firstly I find the comments very contrary as to when I spoke to the guest about the stay. Nothing was mentioned to me as I would have no issues addressing the problems. As for the unit being dirty. The guest wanted to checkin early and as I made them aware checkin was not until 4pm and the unit needed to be prepared as someone had checkout the same day. I find the comments to be harsh as this person mentioned that everything was well except he didn't know how to work the TV which I walked them through. You'll always have one bad apple to try ruin your reputation.
