“Beautiful home Great hosts”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2015

My family with 2 you children stayed at this beautiful apartment for the week at the end of June. It is perfectly located right near everything within a 10 minute walk but is very quiet and safe for our young children. The private pool was amazing! No fighting over chairs or dealing with obnoxious guests. My kids loved it and it was super clean as was the rest of the property. The home Is very spacious and updated with great appliances and ample room for my two toddlers. Our hosts Vernice and Armin we're amazing giving us guidance without ever being pushy. They even hosted a wine and dessert night for us to celebrate our last night. The beaches are gorgeous and basically private. There is a dishwasher and washer dryer which was super helpful with the kids. The grocery store and some great restaurants are minutes away and the public bus is inexpensive and very easy to pickup to go downtown. This was so much nicer than staying at a mega resort especially when you have small kids that can't use most of the amenities. I would suggest having the cab stop on your way back from the airport to pick up groceries. Vernice and Armin made us feel so comfortable and even went above and beyond to drop us to the airport when our taxi didn't show, truly gracious! We really enjoyed every minute of our stay and hope to be back soon!

“perfect stay!”

The kids immediately hit the pool as soon as we arrived while we unpacked and relaxed. The set up is perfect and we loved having the backyard with the hammock and grills. We had many meals out back and enjoyed the lizards and birds. The place is roomy & very comfortable. We had many great nights of sleep! Peter and Mary gave us a lot of information for dining & entertainment which we took advantage of. Overall we fully enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Mandalay!

We had a wonderful time at the Bahamas. The place we stayed at was perfect for 4 people. The location in regard to Down Town was excellent. Easy to take a bus or the taxis are cheap. Vernice and Armin to so good care of us, thanks. We can whole-heartedly, without reservation recommend this place. /Ingabritt, Mats, Lydia and Hayden

“Very pleasant and private”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2012

The apartment was very spacious and well maintained. The private pool and patio provided for many barbecues, relaxation and fun. The beach is only 3 minutes away and typically not very crowded; it's on the side of the island that has the typical calm, clear blue water. We recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of quiet and ample living space when traveling.

“Great vacation rental!”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2012

We had a wonderful time at this vacation rental. We wanted something more than a hotel room as we were staying fr a full week, This place is perfect for 4-5 people and conveniently located to the buses, beach, resorts as well as down town and paradise island. the house is beautifully decorated with a door that opens right out to the pool area.. The owners are delightful and have the perfect balance between hospitality and a keen respect for your privacy. It was our first time in Nassau and renting on the internet so we were not sure what to expect. However if we ever return to Nassau we will stay here again. Please note it is in a residential area however very close to everything and really was affordable. We had our 2 teenage daughters with us and they truly enjoyed the island and felt right at home at this rental. It was a different experience then staying at a resort, What was nice is that we had the pool to ourselves and if we wanted to go to the beach, we could walk there in 5 mins or use the facilities at the Sheraton if you wanted a bit more beach room. We recommend Beach Day at the Blue lagoon. it is very pretty and the water is crystal clear. We highly recommend this rental and will be back if we ever go the Nassau again. Thanks to the owners Vernice and Armin for your hospitality!.

“Perfect family getaway!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2011

The property was even more lovely in person than it looked in the photos. Vernice and Armin were gracious hosts providing a wealth of advice, helping us with logistics for a car rental, buses, taxis, restaurants, beaches and much more. The apartment was a great size, clean, comfortable and very kid friendly for our 1 and 3 year old. The location was a perfect compromise of being near the beach, a few hotels for service's and a short bus ride to downtown Nassau. Definitely no need for a car. Overall, a wonderful rental--we hope to come visit again soon.

“Clean and comfortable”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2011

This is a great place to stay. It is so clean and comfortable. Very conventient location, within walking distance of Cable Beach and the market. The pool and patio area is great, our kids were in the pool constantly. The kitchen is great, especially if you want to do some of your own cooking or grilling. We enjoyed many dinners out on the patio. Armin and Vernice are very hospitable and helpful with information about the island. Would definitely recommend this for couples and families with children. We would love to stay again.

“Great apartment, wonderful people”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2011

A colleague and I were traveling on business recently and stayed at this property. The only thing that was wrong with our stay was that it was way too short, and that we didn't get to enjoy all this apartment has to offer (a beautiful pool, the nearby beach and restaurants) much more. The apartment was so comfortable, and the super-new kitchen and nearby supermarket were great money savers. Nassau and all its attractions (including Paradise Island and Atlantis) were just a $1.25-bus ride away, and the wireless internet was really fast allowing video-conferencing co-workers and Skyping loved ones back home. The landlady was really friendly, though be advised: she and her husband also own a nearby bakery that will launch a full-frontal attack on your resolve and do some serious damage to your waistline. And you just cannot beat the price (we stayed to maximise what we would take home from our per diem payments). I cannot recommend this property enough.

“Best Place to Stay in Nassau”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2011

When traveling with another couple, we always prefer finding a vacation rental to staying in a hotel. What luck we had to find the Hampshire house! It sits on one of the prettiest properties in Nassau, and also one of the most private, in spite of the fact that it is one block off the heart of Cable Beach. Our hostess Vernice went out of her way to arrange rental cars, give us information on restaurants, tell us about hidden beaches and life in the Bahamas, all without being intrusive. My favorite memory of Nassau is sitting on the patio by the pool with our friends in the evening, enjoying the warm Bahamian breeze, and reliving the day's adventures.

We had a great time! The house has everything you need and everything is within walking distance. Vernice and Armin are great hosts. We have two kids and could have not found a better place to enjoy spring break in the Bahamas!
