Visting Nassau for 6 days with a 1 year old

Hi,

We are visiting real soon ( from the 19th). Interested in renting an apartment for the 6 days.( most hotels are pretty expensive and do not have kitchens ). Looking for resources where I can find such apartments. Had booked one through airbnb but that was cancelled. It would be great if someone could give suggestions about where to live and how to look for such apartments.

2 adults and one child.

Just want to relax and see Nassau. Also as the child is so young, is it worth it to go to Atlantis?

A one year old baby is not going to benefit much from a visit to Atlantis other than seeing some fish in the Aquarium. Nor will the child ever remember visiting Atlantis.

Sorry to hear it fell through. You might want to try a resort where all the facilities (day care etc) are available. It probably is a bit late to find a good price for that now - have you considered postponing it?

We the adults also have not ever visited and so was wondering if we could do anything with the child in tow or not..

It is hard ti postpone.. Thinking of carrying dry food with us so that the child is taken care of easily.

Check out VRBO. There are many listings at various prices. Good luck.

That's too bad that your airbnb fell through. What's your budget? Have you had any luck with vrbo.com?

Have you seen this? bedandbreakfast.com/bahamas-nassau-lapalomag… Children are welcome, and it's a central location.

Or this? http://orangehill.com/ up on a hill, just across the street from the beach.

Thank you for your suggestions. I did send out more enquiries on vrbo and contacted la paloma. I saw one listing on airbnb on Village Road. Montagu Villas..

How safe is that area? We heard that the crime in Nassau is pretty high and so we should be careful about places to stay in if they are away from tourist areas.

Sorry, missed your question, and you are arriving today! Where did you end up deciding on staying?

I agree that you should be careful, and take precautions as you would everywhere - lock your doors, don't walk around drunk and wearing expensive jewelry, secure your valuables in a safe while you're out - nothing I haven't done on trips to other places (e.g. Costa Rica or Athens) as well.

Hope you have a Great Trip!
