It was a really nice and comfortable apartment right next to a rocky beach. The view was incredible and close to the sand beach next to a private one. You could reach somebody anytime and the driver was the nicest
Cozy little bungalow tucked back away from the hustle of Nassau/Cable Beach. We really enjoyed grabbing coconuts from the trees outside and cracking them open.
Pros: quiet, very. There are two grocery stores within a short walk. The larger one, that is a little further out is better stocked. Some excellent restaurants within walking distance (The Social House was our all time favorite). The buses (#10 and #12) run constantly on the main road, so much so we didn't bother renting a car. We had one bus that charged $1/per, but all the rest charged $1.25/per person. The kitchenette met our basic cooking needs when we didn't want to eat out. The hosts contacted us on our 3rd day and responded quickly to a few minor housekeeping issues. The house was clean and comfortable.
Cons: The double hot plate that was in our unit had a short in it. The low wattage (right side) plate had a short in it. I was shocked several times trying to use it. It also was almost always on if the unit was plugged in (it had not been addressed by the time we left). One window didn't have a screen on it, and it took a day of dodging bugs to figure out it was open (my son ended up with a few mosquito bites overnight). We had an unexplained power outage one night, naturally when there was little to no wind, and the house became very hot since we couldn't run the AC. With the price of eating out in Nassau so high (excepting fast food), I wish the kitchenette had been a bit more functional (and with a safer hot plate).
Summary: We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Nassau. This house was small, but since we didn't come to stay inside it met all of our needs. The location in Cable Beach worked out perfectly. It was a short bus ride to Downtown or any number of other places. Best of all there were no kids running up and down halls, no noisy neighbors' TVs; just solitude.
The location was amazing, we had access to a small private beach. The area was residential and quiet. Not too many restaurant options that were walkable, but there is a grocery store down the street and we were able to grill at the rental.
I think the place was decent, good location. Great access to the bus and local restaurants and groceries. Not fancy but a good comfortable place to sleep while on vacation. Close to the water, but a little hard to find at first.
Great location, would go again. well positionned on the island. 20 seconds from the water and 2 minutes from the bus. VERY quiet area, if you want to relax that the solution you need. Was there with wife and baby and we just had fun. The North villa doesn't have a cooking stove or BBQ but it's just for your infomation as it's not critical. Very kind neighborhood,
We had a great stay. So appreciated all the hard work of all your staff. They were so helpful. Taxi driver was great. Such quick and helpful responses all the time. It was wonderful to have the peace and tranquillity of North Villa and to be so near the amazing sea. Great to be able to get the bus (Jitney bus number 10) into town. A very frequent and easy service. Great to have good restaurants and supermarket near and then to be able to find our peace again at North Villa. If you want the "High" life then that's near as well! We loved it and it was just what we wanted.
My friend and I wanted somewhere calm and clean, not super-touristy but with easy access to beaches and services, where we could relax and cook to save money on eating out, and this place definitely fit the bill. Not fancy, but clean and tidy, had basic kitchen amenities for cooking. Close to good beaches and bus route, grocery store and some dining options, not crowded and touristy like downtown.
Only negative about the place was that the couch cushions were pretty damp, hard to tell if it was from cleaning or just general humidity. The sofa bed itself was dry however and surprisingly comfortable. And to be fair I didn't bring this up with the owners as it wasn't a big deal and didn't affect my stay (we didn't come to the Bahamas to hang out on the couch!). They checked in with us as soon as we got there and before we left and I'm sure would have addressed it if I'd asked. The taxi driver Burt they set us up with for airport pickup was also very friendly and helpful.
Overall this place was basic but exactly what we wanted.
