About the area

Our centrally located native villa will help you to create your very own vacation memories by enjoying life like a Bahamian while experiencing Nassau. Get away from the crowded hustle and bustle of commercial hotels and relax in a tranquil setting where the tropical winds provide a calming environment. Your villa is uniquely nestled in a quiet neighborhood yet easily accessible to everything. Open the blinds and watch the dawn of each new day as the sunrise kisses the tropical trees located in the breathtaking Botanical Gardens which is literally in your backyard! Walk 25 steps from your backyard and view the Botanical Gardens 600 species of flowering trees and shrubs. Want a shorter commute to a tropical garden? Then just step outside the front door of the villa and explore within our grounds various plant and flowers. Ready to tour Nassau? Now, casually stroll 100 steps heading east and you will be in Fort Charlotte. Built by British in 1776, a guided tour of Fort Charlotte features a water-less moat, draw-bridge, underground passages and dungeons which recounts slavery and emancipation in The Bahamas. Alternatively, stroll 100 steps heading south and you can tour Popopstudios Centre for the Visual Arts (formerly Dillet's Guesthouse). The public transportation is only a 3 minutes stroll--$1 heading east takes you to the Straw Market, Downtown Nassau or Atlantis/Paradise Island or take a scenic 15 minute walk and you are in the heart of the Town. While in town visit the Queen's staircase which was carved out of solid limestones by slaves in the late 18th century between 1793 and 1794. Alternatively, a 7 minutes ride further west of the apartment places you at Cable Beach public 18-hole golf course. Have fun at world renown Cable Beach Strip. There are 3 additional beaches for your absolute pleasure. For the nature lover, just 50 feet from your villa you'll see the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center which provides a sanctuary and survival center for over 300 exotic birds, mammals and reptiles. It is famous for being home to the world famous marching pink flamingos. Ready to feast on Bahamian delicacies?

“Just what we wanted for our first trip to Nassau”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2017

We wanted to stay away from large resorts and hotels with their outrageous costs and explore the local area. Julie's apartment is exactly that and in the right spot for walking to the beach and Fish Fry(5 minutes) and downtown Nassau (15 minutes) She and her family are great hosts. Some of her family lives in the same apt. complex and are so helpful and kind. Julie took us to the grocery store on our first night there and we stocked up on breakfast foods and snacks. There is a small grocery store around the corner and we picked up a newspaper, water and other necessities there during the week. The apartment is very clean, has great wifi and had everything we needed. We loved talking to the locals in the area, and being in a quiet location. If we get the opportunity to return to Nassau we will book with Julie again. Thank you and your family Julie.

Julie thank you so much for your hospitality! I've stayed here 5 times in the last year and I can honestly say that you will not find a better place to stay at. The apartment is clean, you will have everything you need, and if you're ever missing something Julie can assist you with it! Thanks a million Julie for opening your home to me and always taking care of me! See you soon! Christina

“Julie is awesome”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2016

I had a great experience with this property. it was neat, clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Julie went out of her way to make sure my every need was looked after. Her lovely driver Ellie picked me up at the airport ,dropped me off at the grocery store to pick up provisions for the boat and drove me back to airport next day. Location is easy walk to downtown and close to lots of restaurants. Would absolutely stay here next time in Nassua.

“Wonderful place”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2016

from start to finish this vacation rental was perfect Julie and family are a pleasure and could not do enough for us. Location si great for so many things and within walking distance of down town Nassau along the sea front. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit Nassau. thanks to Julie and all the Bahamian people who help make this island a pleasure to visit.

“Great place...walking distance to beach”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2015

Just got back from our trip here. This condo was convenient to the beach (only a short walk) and not far from downtown. We had no problems with the amenities and the available wireless. The place was clean and comfortable. The owner Julie is very friendly and accommodating. She was very consistent with contacting us to make sure we had everything we needed and to make sure our stay was positive. I look forward to staying here again!

“"Excellent location + well-equipped villa = Great”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2010

"Our family has used VRBO successfully a few times now and we generally have high expectations. Julie and her network of friends and neighbors were able to exceed our hopes and plans for a great Bahamian stay. The word "close" is an adequate description for virtually anywhere you want to visit on the island. If you feel fit, the wlks are not too far. The local bus transport is excellent and around a buck each time you get off. Taxis were pricy, but not compared to a NYC or Chicago ride for 5 miles. As promised, Julie arranged for airport transportation and a visit to a local market. We were able to but everything we need for breakfasts and snacks at the apartment. There were a few bars and a market around the corner if we forgot anything. And once when it was raining, a neighbor lent us an umbrella and gave aus a ride to the restaurant we desired. The villa has everthing you need and was put to the test by our two teenagers. There was access to three beaches by walking or bus. We even found a secluded private strip up on Cable Beach where it was just our family of four and the ocean. When you go this route, you should expect that you will not be surrounded by the pristine hotel environment and lack of local culture. We love the surprises and challenges that living local can provide. If you think that is cool, you might want to look into this property. When we went, the price was about 1/2 of the fancy hotels. I think we received the better value.

“Best Birthday EVER!”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2010

First off, Julie I apologize this a yr overdue. However, that's how amazing our stay was that a yr later I would comment of our experience. Julie was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and safe. She arranged transportation from the airport and grocery store and also helped make reservations for a delicious birthday dinner. The surroundings were amazing to experience the REAL Bahamas away from the hotels and tourists but still central to the city. Was walking distance to beaches, restaurants, and nightlife. It became our home away from home. Everything was clean and nicely renovated. Couldn't have imagined a better way to have experienced Nassau and wouldn't have been able to do so without the great apartment and help of Julie.

The place was just what we needed, great location - no hotels around - it was the real Nassau - lovely neighbours, the owner organized and helpful, birds siging every morning was the only noise.

“Wonderful Trip”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2010

I am writing this as our 10 day vacation winds down. My Father and I stayed for 9 nights at the Vila and I must stress how perfect it was. The place made us feel just as though we were at home. With the fully equipped kitchen, television, air conditioning and big, comfy beds- and of course the near by beach, we had the trip of our lives. Lastly, Julie was amazing. She continuously checked in on us and was very professional and courteous to our needs. Overall, it was a vacation much needed and now I understand why the Villa and the Bahamas come highly recommended.

“Central Location - Neat and Clean Apartment!”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2009

This 1 or 2 bedroom with 1 bath apartment has an excellent location in Nassau. The kitchen is fully equipped if you feel like cooking or you can take a short walk to the Arawak Cay (The Fish Fry) where you will get the best Bahamian food available on the island. We found the property to be perfectly suited to our needs and the bed was very comfortable. The apartment is furnished and decorated very nicely. It even has granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom. Julie is fantastic to deal with and will take very good care of you.
