Nassau cottage description

Birdsong is a new, modern cottage with just over 1,500 sq.Ft of living space and an additional 500 sq.ft of verandah outdoor living. Situated on a beautifully landscaped property, framed by native trees and flowers - the property attracts local birds of all kinds, hence the name birdsong!

You will enjoy our private 3 bed/2 bath home in a quiet and secluded bahamian community (4th bed is a sofa bed in the lounge). The local beach is a short 3 minute walk away, and our second community beach is less than 5 minutes away by car. A short 15 minute drive will get you to the world famous Cabbage Beach and Atlantis Resort and Casino. Baha Mar and the 'Bahamian Riviera' is a short 25 minutes away (all times assume good traffic flow).

Enjoy a quick sandwich or a gourmet home cooked meal prepared in our fully equipped and modern kitchen which includes a stainless steel gas range and gas oven, large stainless steel fridge/freezer, microwave oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal and other kitchen must haves!

Our outdoor eating area gets you in a festive bahamian spirit as it is nestled in the gardens under massive coconut fronds! It's an especially great location to savor your favorite cocktails! Grill your catch of the day or a great steak from the nearby supermarket (less than 1 mile away) on our kettle charcoal grill!

Our master bedroom with ensuite bath has a king bed and features a walk-in closet. Our second bedroom has a queen bed, and our third bedroom has 2 single beds. Rooms 2 and 3 have easy access to a second full bathroom. Our home also boasts a convenient laundry closet with a washer/dryer for your convenience. However, in authentic bahamian style - we also have a clothes line available as no drying source is more efficient than the sun…and we have plenty of sun at birdsong in historic Nassau, Bahamas!

                  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: We are a blended family of a native Bahamian boy and a roaming New Zealander girl. Having met more than 12 years ago - we have been married almost 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 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).
