  • 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."

  • Amazing !!!

    "Always stay with Cilis when I am in Nassau. Perfect location, impeccable accommodations and a wonderful host. You won't find this type of service/quality anywhere else on the island and to top it off it's EXTREMELY reasonable in price!"

  • A place to relax

    "My whole family had a happy time there. Since we planned on spending our time mainly at the house, we did not need to rent a car. Traffic seemed kinda crazy anyway, and why stressing out on the wrong side of the road. Thanks to Billy for taking us to the supermarket upon arrival. Afterwards we just walked there or took the bus for eating out. Bank was a half mile walk, sometimes in the warm rain. Not once we felt like going to a public beach. The direct access to the ocean down from the patio was like having a private beach. In the water people with boats or jet skis would offer their services, and after dismissing the rip-off artists, we were able to recognize fair offers from a couple of decent guys (like a boat tour with the son of the sports store owners across the street). We have been in many hotels and rentals over the years, but somehow the time in the "yellow house" seems like our best vacation ever. Read the other reviews for more details. It's all true... I guess it all depends what people are looking for, but as far as this listing goes, WYSIWYG. Recommended for: folks who value some privacy and don't freak out if they cannot find the pasta strainer."

  • Perfect for our family!

    "As I wait for my taxi to head back to the airport, I couldn't wait to write a raving review of our vacation!! I'm looking around this gorgeous home and appreciating how well maintained and thoughtful all of the details are. We had an amazing stay here and will definitely be back! The home is even more beautiful in person and has many games, books, snorkeling gear, rafts, etc that we weren't even expecting! The air in one of the bedrooms stopped working and the management company took care of it right away! We were so impressed with how easy it was to communicate with the property manager as well as the owner. We can't say enough nice things about our experience! Also, the taxi services provided by Joe and Sharon were wonderful, courteous and prompt! We highly recommend this home!! Additionally, we enjoyed eating at Cafe Matisse, Lukka Kairi (tapas style and good people watching), and fish fry. We enjoyed buying fresh catch seafood at the fish market at Montague. Delicious!!"
