We got a great welcome from chef Sweeting who had prepared a light meal and showed us all we needed to know about the house. The house was as described in the description and was well suited for 6 persons. Cathy was easy to reach if we had questions and we had great service fro Chef Sweeting in addition. The house is a great starting point for other excursions as Atlantis, Saling and Snorkling and Fishing. We had a great experience with Barefoot Sailing ht tp://www.barefootsailingcruises.com/ and a great fishing experience with Hunter Charters www.huntercharters.com.

But the most important thing to do is to rent Chef Sweeting to cook you a couple of Bahamian meals. He is an outstanding person who know how to serve a party. perrysweeting@Yahoo.com

Thanks to Cathy for letting us rent the place and to Chef Sweeting for extraordinary service.

“AWESOME...your own beautiful island ocean villa!”

Beautiful island villa on the ocean, comfortable, and superb hospitality. My sisters and I wanted to go on a vacation where we could relax, spend some time together, and have some fun! Cathy makes the place feel like your home away from home. Everything was there that we needed. Clean & beautiful island decor, LOVED the hammock under the sea grape tree overlooking the sea, having the pool all to ourselves, patio table available for brunch outside, utensils to cook with so we could make some meals at the villa, FREE bottled water (you can only drink bottled water in The Bahamas so this is very convenient; I wish hotels did this!!!), there's even a grill if you want to do some BBQ. This private Nassau paradise was really a treat. I love how it's decorated with pretty conch shells all along the seawall & how Cathy has a guide book of all her favorite things to do from Bahamian food to ferry boats excursions to Exuma! We had so much fun playing games she has there especially Taboo...we played for hours! We even bought some day passes and went to Atlantis & visited the Paradise Island Beach. Next time we have to stay longer so we can do more stuff. Great deal & we will always remember & appreciate this experience!

“Paradise Found”

Our family (6 adults) spent a week at Cathy's ocean villa. The home was everything we could have wanted and more! The house was plenty big enough for 6 of us. We spent most of our time there on the back patio overlooking the ocean, sitting by the pool, or actually in the ocean. We did see the stingray and several crabs. For our beach days, the villa had plenty of beach chairs and floats, which was a nice surprise. There was even a hand pump to blow up the floats we brought with us! The gas grill allowed us to cook our fresh fish we caught, and the kitchen was well stocked for all out other cooking needs. The grocery store was close by, along with the package store. We would definitely come back for another stay at this perfect ocean villa!

“AMAZING Vacation home”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Some of my friends from college and I were looking for a reasonable vacation rental home in the Bahamas. We absolutely loved Cathy's Ocean Paradise. The weather was warm and sunny. The house has 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 fully stocked bathrooms, washer and dryer, and a modern kitchen with a microwave and dishwasher. Not only did the place also have a private pool and jacuzzi, but steps leading down directly into the ocean where my friends and I sunbathed and snorkeled. The place is quiet and provided the most relaxing atmosphere for my friends and I to unwind. We especially enjoyed the swing, the hammock and all the seagrapes and coconuts that grew on the property.

While staying in the villa, we were really able to get a taste of the 'island life' as Cathy had provided numerous brochures and menus facilitating our decisions on how to spend our time. She also provided a discount for the John Watling's Rum factory which we thoroughly enjoyed. We also had the pleasure of having a chef cook for us for a few nights and prepare a feast of peas and rice, fried fish, macaroni and conch fritters (some of the more popular native dishes).

We spent a day at the Atlantis water resort and had a wonderful time going on all the slides (try the Leap of Faith for a real thrill) and swimming in the ocean. Afterwards, we took a ferry tour back to the main land and visited the straw market. The ferry tour was only $4!

I would most definitely recommend Ocean Paradise to anyone simply seeking a fantastic time! The villa was gorgeous and the sea- breathtaking! It was simply amazing to walk out the back door and suddenly, you're peering over the calm ocean. The view is absolutely exquisite! I have already booked my return next summer- this time I want to bring my boyfriend and enjoy a romantic vacation!

We are happy that you and your family had a great time at our Ocean Paradise!
As mentioned, Ocean Paradise is a fantastic location for a relaxing beach vacation. Our guests usually swim every day in the warm, crystal clear sea which is a few steps from the doors of our Villa. They enjoy taking photos of the gorgeous fish and other marine life in the ocean at our Villa. The views from our patio facing the ocean are breath taking, gorgeous and spectacular.
Our Ocean Paradise is well suited for families and small groups of people who desire to experience a relaxing vacation on the oceanfront.
We are a short drive of ten to fifteen minutes to a wonderful Water Park, Dolphin Encounters, Powerboat Adventures and numerous other excursions, restaurants and Bay Street our Town Center.
As mentioned in many magazines, Nassau has some of the best beaches in the world. Come and feel the warm sun, sand and sea!

Thanks for the great Review.

We are happy to hear that everyone had a wonderful time.

We agree that from our deck you can watch sting rays, porpoise and many other types of fish swim by. It is fantastic to see and it’s like having your own private sea aquarium.

Very relaxing to swim and snorkel from our patio deck as the sea is crystal clear and beautiful.

We look forward to your visit again next year. Thanks again.

This is the 2nd time we stayed here and all I can say is Fantastic. Great views, nice pool and very clean. Kathy the owner takes care of all your needs. There is nothing to bring other than your bathing suits. The property is in a very quit area of Nassau on the Eastern Shore. You will need a car to get around.. You are 10 minutes from Atlantis and 15 minutes from downtown. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is your place. Cathy provides excellent customer service. I highly recommend this property.
