Recent New Providence reviews

  • Perfect spot

    "We recently visited this cottage for a week in October and could not have been happier! If you're reading this and contemplating staying here do yourself a favor and stay here! Your hosts are fantastic, the grounds are beautiful, you'll have everything you need for a great vacation on the island. There's a reason every review for this place has 5 stars and our review would give more if VRBO would let us. It's possible to stay here without a car and get around but we highly recommend you rent one. You'll get to so many more places and groceries and such having a car speaks itself. Your hosts will be very helpful with any questions and they know of all great the restaurants and help with navigating assistance and directions around the island. They are great! We will be thrilled to stay here again. Brian and Katie from California"

  • Great Spot , Great Value , Great Hosts

    "My wife & I have visited the Nassau area five times over the last 3 years and have now added this location to places we have enjoyed staying at. Julie and her family make wonderful hosts and have provided a clean, comfortable, secure residence for vacationers like us. The location is close enough to the beaches and local transportation while providing a local neighborhood ambience. Having "prompt" transportation arranged and covered, from and to the airport, is an appreciated feature of staying here. Julie also arranged trips to the grocery store , a must when eating most meals in and not having a car rental as part of our vacation. I have no hesitation to recommend this townhouse as a Great Spot, Great Value & Great Hosts ."

  • Best Trip Ever

    "Absolutely Wonderful! Is what we have to say about Barry and Diane. The minute we got there, they made us feel so comfortable in their home; we could not find better hosts like Barry and Diane. Their garden is beautiful with all kind of fruit trees, we were totally enjoy the fresh coconut water, it was so sweet and flavorful. The property is truly PARADISE, you could not beat the view in the morning; the water was so calm and warm, I really miss the early morning swim, just imagine, you have the biggest swimming pool in the world next to your bedroom... The balcony on the second floor was a bonus, we saw all kind of fish from the top view and the morning sunrise was absolute beautiful... The bedrooms (2) are spacious, the kitchen has everything to prepare nice homemade dinners, the living room is comfortable, but why would you want to stay inside when you can hang around the balcony to enjoy the best view and the beautiful weather! The fish market is less than 10 minutes away, we stopped by the fish market every day to buy some fresh catch for dinners, the bonus was, we did not have to clean them, paid a few dollars and they were ready to go. If you plan a trip to Caribbean, I highly recommend "Paradise Found", it will be the most memorable trip you've ever had. We have already talked about our next trip at "Paradise Found" for next year. Thanks again Barry and Diane..."

  • Fabulous Location

    "Two Moms needed a get away and this was the place of our dreams! Our own private pool and very comfortable accommodations. Everything you need is at the house. Angela greeted us at the airport where we rented a car and took us to the grocery store. The house is the perfect location to see the Island. Close to downtown and various beaches. And so very peaceful! We highly recommend this house for those that dislike resorts and crowds. We used the pool every day."
