Birdsong is located in tranquil Eastern New Providence. Eastern New Providence is known for its well established and family oriented residential communities. Birdsong is located on a quiet street surrounded by established family homes. In less than 5 minutes by car, guests can reach Super Value, the oldest and most popular grocery store chain in The Bahamas. Also located within 5 minutes are fast-food restaurants (Wendy's, Dominos Pizza, Marco's Pizza to name a few) and authentic Bahamian fast-food options too - most notably Bamboo Shack. A very well stocked liquor store only 5 minutes away by car, combined with 2 community beaches, one 5 minutes by foot and the other 3 minutes by car - make our community a convenient option for those looking to get away.
For more excitement and to mingle with throngs of vacationers, the vibrant and historic Downtown Nassau is easily accessible by car. The Straw Market which is located downtown is a fun way to barter for souvenirs. There are also any number of other shopping options available downtown to suit every budget.
The world famous Atlantis Resort and Casino is a must visit as well as a swim at Cabbage Beach - one of the most beautiful and pristine in the world. Both attractions are located on Paradise Island which is a short ride away.
New Providence Island is just 21 miles long by 7 miles wide (at its widest point). Therfefore the whole Island is our community! Nothing is far away - however knowing the best time of day to travel on the roads is critical.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are a blended family of a native Bahamian boy and a roaming New Zealander girl. Having met more than 13 years ago - we have been married 10 years and have made a home at birdsong for our 2 sons. Zealous travelers, we wanted to create a home that was just what a transient family would need to be super comfortable - so we know that you will be comfortable too in our beautiful Bahamian home!
Why the Owner Chose Nassau: After a long search, we decided on this property because of its proximity to the beach! Also, we were captivated by its quiet and secluded location - yet it is very accessible!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The gardens are lush - and when all the flowers are in full bloom, the views and colors are resplendent! Not to mention, the fruit trees: coconuts, sea grapes, young mango and avocado trees (not yet blooming).
