Ocean Paradise surpassed all our expectations. It's situation right on the coast with easy access to the sea and its own pool is fabulous. The views were gorgeous throughout the day and sunrise is beautiful. The changing sea state is great from Mill pond to high tides with waves splashing over the wall. The facilities were as described, perfect for a beach break. We used the BBQ often. A car was necessary to get the the shops and visit beaches. We loved "love beach"" out west and Cabbage Beach was amazing. A visit to Sandy Toes on Rose Island was a great day out, great fun. We didn't like Atlantis very commercialised. We ate at The Blue Sail, Green Parrot, Poop Deck and for a real treat indulged ourselves at Graycliffe.
Cathy was really helpful and stated in touch throughout our stay. Car hire was Sand Dollar and they brought the car to us. We also took a trip to Eleuthera which gave us a great contrast to Nassau. All in all a great time was had by all.
Lovely villa with wonderful ocean views. Swim or walk to quiet beach. Owner lovely to deal with. Everything went super smooth. We will be back.
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful house right on Caribbean ocean. We enjoyed the roomy interior and well-appointed kitchen inside, and the large deck with pool and shaded area for lounging outside. Swimming and snorkeling was a few steps away! Wi-fi and TV, with plenty of DVDs to watch, and games to play are also provided, if the amazing view isn't enough. Shopping is close, as is downtown Nassau. Can't imagine wanting anything else in a vacation home.
We had a fantastic time at Ocean Paradise! We were a family of 8 adults, 2 infants and 1 toddler. We had more than enough space for an entire week. The home was surprisingly well equipped for children, with toys, a play-yard, bouncy seat, books, and sand toys to be enjoyed. This truly is a great place for families to spend their vacation. Outdoor space that is safe, a pool to swim in, and quiet rooms for sleeping. We loved the large outdoor patio. The sunrise every morning was amazing. Lounging on the terrace in the afternoon sun was great for tanning, relaxing, reading and hanging out. We BBQed every night for dinner. It was wonderful. The home was very clean and comfortable for such a large group. Bedrooms are huge, beds comfortable and enough bathrooms for all. The area was beautiful. A 10 minute walk down the road is a small local beach that was lovely to relax at, wade in the beautiful water (all sand in the water so great for kids) and enjoy the sun. Downtown Nassau and all of the major desired destinations (Paradise Island, Atlantis etc) are an easy 20 minute drive. Best to follow Cathy's directions from the airport if driving or have GPS as most streets are NON named even though printed map directions will provide street names. You will get lost if you do this. Cathy was also a great host -- responded immediately to anything we needed, Very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommended staying here for your Nassau vacation. Couldn't ask for much more!!
The house was perfect! We had seven adults (three couples and a single) and the accommodations worked out perfectly. there are back steps that go down to the water and you can swim right off the back of the house. The water is around waist deep and is perfect. I have rented a few vacation houses and one of my pet peeves is when the accommodations state that it can accommodate 9 people comfortably and then you get there and there never enough dishes and utensils, etc for everyone. Cathy has more than enough of everything for a lot more than just nine people! The outside grill is a little weathered on the outside from being so close to the ocean and salt air but it worked perfectly and grilled everything evenly. This house is in a beautiful location and is well kept just far enough away from all the tourist locations where you have peace and quiet. With that said the one thing you'll have to keep in mind is that you should plan on renting a car to get around the island but unless you're staying on a resort you'll need a car to get around anyway. I would recommend this house to anybody looking to rent a vacation home in Nassau.
Thank you Cathy for sharing you're wonderful house with us. My Family and I enjoyed it!
My husband and I came over to the Bahamas for our Nephew's wedding. He and his fiancé live in Nassau and found this lovely home for us. We couldn't have been more pleased. The location was perfect for what we wanted. Far enough away from the crowds and in a neighborhood that was quiet and safe. When we arrived at Ocean Paradise, we were pleasantly surprised by the house. It is even nicer than the pictures. It has a very open concept with lots of light and a beautiful view of the ocean, AND of the full moon rising if you're lucky enough to be there at the right time. On the days that the ocean was a bit to rough to swim in, we enjoyed the pristine pool and spacious patio with plenty of comfortable lounge chairs for everyone. The closest beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, and really pretty. If you choose to eat in, the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to prepare meals. The barbecue grill was brand new and a breeze to use. All the air conditioners worked great and so did the wifi. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms well stocked with plenty of towels for all. There is a closet filled with all kinds of games in case you have a day that you want to stay in. The whole experience was wonderful. When we come back to visit, we will defiantly be booking Ocean Paradise for our stay. On an added note, on arrival the house was spotless, and Cathy was a more than accommodating owner as far as checking on us, making sure that we had all that we needed to make our vacation perfect.
