If you want a peaceful vacation with magnificent ocean views, a beautiful, quiet beach and lovely accommodations and hosts, this is it. We spent 6 nights here. The description on the listing is very accurate. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms are comfortable, and the apartment is well maintained and clean. The location, a short distance west of Sandyport Beach, is away from the crowds yet with really easy access to Nassau via direct bus if you so choose. There is a terrific, casual restaurant, Nesbitt's, right across the street. There's also a lovely European-style bakery nearby. Mary and Peter, who own/manage the property, are terrific and so helpful.
As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by Peter, the owner, he helped us carry our many bags of groceries to our apartment. Upon walking inside, even though it was night time, the place was cheery and bright. The beds were extremely comfortable, which lead to a good nights sleep. Upon waking and opening the curtains, there was the ocean about 20ft. from the door. Only downside is that there is a wall between you and the ocean. This is because there are rocks on the other side. So to get to "the beach", you have to walk outside the complex about 100ft or so. Not a big deal. The views and sunsets were amazing. The only other downside was the bird. While it never woke us up in the middle of the night, they put a cover on his cage for that reason, those wonderful afternoon naps after the beach weren't always so wonderful. Overall, the location of the apartment was fantastic, the apartment was nicely equipped with amenities, and the night time security guard is a peacemaker. Yes! Unfortunately, Nassau can be a little shady after dark so having the guard there to greet you in the apartment parking lot is great.
In addition, Cheryl's taxi service, that Mary and Peter have an agreement with, is top notch. All the drivers were professional and timely. They picked us up at the airport, drove us to the grocery store, waited for us, and then took us to the apartment. So convenient! We used them several times throughout our stay.
I would definitely recommend to friends and family and will be renting from Peter and Mary again.
After staying at another property that was falsely advertised and desperately trying to find a place last minute, Mary and Pete saved our vacation! This place is a perfect paradise! Unit has everything you need and is simply but perfectly decorated. You are right on the water and we just kept our sliders open listening to the waves all day! Little patio was a perfect place to have coffee or cocktails! Sunsets were incredible! Unit was clean and quiet! No pool but you could walk down steps into ocean out front or walk right next to the building to get to a small sandy beach! The local jitney stopped right outside the gate and could take you just about anywhere you wanted to go. Nesbitt's was right across the street and had wonderful Bahamian food! We would return to the unit or any unit in this small complex! Perfect rental!

Everything is great except that the apt is a little far from where the activities are. Not a problem if you have a car, otherwise you need to use bus to get around. The landlords also provide kayaks.
