  • Vacation at Ocean Mist Condos

    "Our family just stayed at the 2 bedroom next door to this one. It was absolutely beautiful and the location was perfect. We were no more than 15 minutes from anywhere on the island. The owners and management were extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely return and will recommend this place any time."

  • Wonderful time, wonderful villa

    "Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay at this clean, spacious villa on beautiful Love Beach. The owners were responsive and accommodating. The villa is situated in a quiet location and still a convenient drive to other parts of the island. We would highly recommend choosing this location from which to enjoy your stay in Nassau."

  • A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE!

    "This was our first experience in the Bahamas. As a large group of people mixed with single couples, and small families, we were concerned about choosing an all-inclusive which is why we searched for a rental property. We were excited to find a property that offered the amenities that Stargaze did. This place met the variety of needs of our entire group. The bedrooms were spacious and the layout was very conducive to the mixed group. The eating area accommodated the group well enough, and the kitchen was fully stocked with all we needed and large enough to have 'many cooks' do their work. The bathrooms were clean and functional. However, the water pressure was weak even when only running one of the showers at a time. There were many common areas to relax, both inside and outside of the villa. The family room was cozy and provided enough room for our entire party to plan our day's events. Overall, the place was very clean and cozy, and we would definitely return! The air conditioning system worked fabulously, and the fans helped to circulate the air. We wish the laundry worked a little better (could never get through a full load of laundry). We were told that the machines were too full, but even with a VERY small load, the machines weren't cooperating. This was only a problem, because we wanted to wash towels after a day by the pool. However, there were more than enough towels provided to not make this an issue. The property managers Patrice and Angie were amazing! There were always available and answered any of our questions or concerns quickly. There was a huge rainstorm the first night we were there and a newly upgraded tile floor on the rooftop patio was leaking. A repairman was there that night, and returned the next morning to fix the issue. It never bothered us to begin with, but this showed the care the property was under. We never had any issues with this again. The pool was clean and functional, and there were nice chairs provided (8). The location was close to a very good conch stand, and a bus stop to get into town. It was a short walk from the property to both. There is careful attention to safety which was a little scary - almost overdone - but at least careful measures were taken to ensure we never had any issues. However, our entire group found the property and the people to be unbelievably friendly, and never felt unsafe. We hope to find ourselves at Stargaze in the future!"

    "We had our vacation in Bahamas,June 2014.We were group of 4 (2 couples),our friends had wedding there. I must say rented apartment exceeded our expectation. Unit 8 is amazing apartment with 2 separated bedrooms,2 bathrooms,nice kitchen and beautiful,big living room.Very well equipped,nice and clean.There is everything what you need!Instead of wall in living room you have huge window with view to the ocean.Great terrace for grilling.Just a walk distance away ( you can walk on the beach) a very nice restaurant. During our 6 day stay we hardly could see people on the beach.The color of the water is just taking your breath away..We took an opportunity having a car and check island around.The conclusion was one for everybody-our beach is the BEST!! Hosting family very kind and nice.Linda( the owner) meat us at the Airport and gave us short trip in the Nassau with pointing out the best places to shop and go out.In the end of our stay we were taken to Airport.I cannot say any bad thing about our stay in Unit 8!It was calm paradise which at least once in your life you should visit!Definitely I would recommend Unit 8 for all of my friends and would like to come back by myself as well :)"

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.

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.
