The property has central air but was broken the first day the location was great
The location of this place is awesome, the first day the air conditioning was broken, the second day our neighbor smashed the window out side his place at 2am which was a little scary, then after that my son who was sleeping on the couch got red marks on his body which is most likely bed bugs
Like the location but not for a budget friendly traveler
My bf and i were here june 2017. Apartment was in a nice area. Felt safe and had a great air conditioner. Downsides were that all the items that were supposedly available for use were not available. No chairs..umbrella.. etc. There was also nasty smelling towels left in the washing machine. On the flip the apartment is 10 min walk to food and a private little beach. That part was amazing! Also a 10 min walk to the ferry taxis which are cheaper to travel in. I probably would not stay here again because I would rather stay in a place where there is more life. Good getaway place to avoid ppl and just relax.
Small, dusty, inconvenient, and noisy rental
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!
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
Great Location. Great Place.
Everything you need in one place. Walking distance to all the main attractions. Easy access. Great Price.
Surrounded by restaurants, shops, bars and many more!!
