  • Another wonderful stay

    "We had a wonderful time staying here again. Quiet and peaceful place and out of the way of busy tourist spots. Equipped with a high chair and a pack and play which was great for us and our two small children. The water this year was colder than last year, so I would recommend a skin or a wet suit for snorkeling. Recommend Twin Brothers in town for a sampling of local fare."

  • Excellent home!

    "We stayed here for a little over a week during the winter holidays and the owners were very very accommodating and hospitable! I would highly recommend staying here for anyone traveling with a small family. Car is definitely a must! What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get."

  • True beach vacation for entire family

    "We have stayed at Manor of Love a total of 4 times. It has all we could possibly wish for on a beach vacation: walking to beach without having to cross any road, excellent kid-friendly pristine beach with medium waves, easy for swimming, great snorkelling, and friendly locals. We have stayed in different over the years and they are all clean, spacious, and have a great view! The Manor also have a nice outdoor area with shade, hammock, and amazing patio furniture if you want to relax a few steps away from the beach as well as a volleyball net. We hope to be back next year!"

  • Better than ever!

    "This was the 4th consecutive year my husband and I have rented this spacious, comfortable villa for at least 2 weeks in late February (so we have obviously always enjoyed it), but this year, we were delighted to discover that the owners had completely renovated the kitchen, up-dated the bathrooms, and re-painted...so the place is nicer than ever (not "luxurious," but fresh and bright). AND it's impossible to exaggerate the convenience of having a washer/dryer in the unit! We love Viola's (the friendly on-site bar/grill) and Anthony's (a restaurant within walking distance which offers the best black bean soup in the world), and my husband, who likes to play a little blackjack on vacation, loves the short walk to the Atlantis casino. (We always rent a car so we can "cross the bridge" for groceries and the occasional fancy restaurant meal...try Graycliff, Luciano's and Matisse...but not necessary to have a car, especially for a short stay when it's not necessary to stock a lot of groceries, as one can easily get a taxi.) I should add that the owners are also a pleasure to deal with. The ONLY negative has nothing to do with the villa itself, but the pool in the complex...it's pretty and sparkling clean, but it's unheated...so it's FRIGID (at least in February...may be fine later in the year)."

Nassau has undergone a major refurbishment with old colonial buildings being restored to their former glory. The historic town center has a number of interesting places to visit. You can finish off your tour with some retail therapy at the nearby shops and enjoy some of the duty-free benefits of shopping in the Bahamas. The Bay Street Straw Market is well worth a visit and you can spend your time there browsing the various stalls.

One of the best ways to sightsee on the island is to hire a scooter or bicycle. Just remember that the traffic drives on the left side of the road. There are several historic forts that are interesting to visit. If you head out of Nassau, travel west to Cable Beach, one of the island’s smaller communities. Coral Harbor is a quiet but stylish community located on the southern side of the island. Nearby is the historic village of Adelaide. This was one of the first black communities established on New Providence following the abolition of slavery. The coast on the southern side of the island offers some nice secluded beaches and swimming spots. If you take a rod and reel along, you can also try your hand at fishing.

Paradise Island is linked to New Providence by two large bridges. There are also ferries that run on a regular schedule between the two islands. Paradise Island is home to a number of luxury resorts and casinos. Try your luck and maybe you can win a few extra dollars that you can splurge on a shopping spree.
