About Dave Holmes


I am German but live in the Bahamas since 1997. Love it! Throughout my very much travelling I have never seen an ocean like in the Bahamas, so beautiful.

I bought the property in 1998 and built the cottage. In 2008 I establish the vacation rental business and in 2013 I sold the cottage to Dave Holmes for who I am still managing the rentals.

Dave Holmes purchased this house in 2000

Why Dave Holmes chose New Providence

The location is perfect!! Quiet and secluded, yet close to all amenities and activities.

Once at the cottage, it's location feels like out of this world!

Excellent Location, service is great and the house is beatiful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house on May 4th, 2017 for three days. The location is amazing, with a beach front. We were able to watch the sunrise. Our kids snorkeled for hours over the reefs, which are all over the place in this part of the bay. The sand-beach is only a few minutes away, in fact we snorkeled our way to the beach. The house is only about a 15 min drive from all the noise and tourist places but feels far enough that is nice and relaxing. There are a couple of grocery stores stores about 5 miles away. We brought our most of our food and cooked to save money in restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped and the there is plenty space for more than one cook. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, although we spent most of our time either on the water or on the porch. Our favorite place in the house is in fact the porch. We highly recommend this house.

Wonderful Week in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week! There were five of us: two seniors, two adults, and a 13 year old. The property manager welcomed us with excellent information about island activities which saved us a lot of time trying to find the best places to go. The cottage is a couple miles from Nassau, but after spending a day on Paradise Island and in Nassau with all the people, we were very, very happy to return to our little cottage of solitude, peace, and quiet. We enjoyed the "Poop Deck" for dinner and there is a grocery store close by the cottage. We did rent a car which is the way to go or you will need a taxi to get around. The island people were extremely friendly and helpful even when met on the street. There is no sand beach at the cottage, but you can swim and snorkel there; there is, however, a public sand beach within walking distance. We spent two days at the beach at the "Palm Cay" resort suggested by our property manager - great restaurant, bar, beach lounge chairs, pool, ocean, sun and few people .. what more could one ask for. Thanks to the info from our property manager, we didn't have to spend time looking for things to do or directions, she was extremely helpful and was available for any questions during the week responding immediately to our phone calls or e-mails. We had a great time!

Paradise at its best!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were staying at this beautiful cottage, which is remarkably well maintained, with a beautiful garden and the most stunning view you could dream of, right in front of you the ocean in it's turquoise colours. In the morning you can witness the most spectacular sunrise you could ever dream off! Swimming and snorkelling is perfect in this bay, so it is to go for strolls along the bay. For kids it's ideal too, as the water isn't that deep, but still you are surrounded by fish even in shallow waters. When you swim/snorkel out further it's the most exciting experience!

The house itself makes you feel at home; it was super clean, and perfectly sized. The house is in a beautiful upper class peaceful neighborhood. A supermarket, pharmacies, etc. are close by. It's perfectly situated to visit Paradise Island, and do sightseeing, although we felt that much at home instantly, that we hardly left the house as it made you simply feel that much at home! And where could you have a nice garden and an ocean waiting for you?!

The sunbeds in the garden were perfect, enough for all of us and nice, the porch gives you nice shade and was ideal for games and outside breakfast or lunch or dinner, the dining area and kitchen was just perfect for the 6 of us, and there was even a great BBQ!

The room sizes were generous and even the mattress of each bed was perfect, so was the space for all the personal belongings. Waking up with the sound of the ocean is as unforgettable as our entire stay. The host was extremely nice and gave us great tips for sightseeing, but the best was to simply stay and enjoy "home"! It was paradise at it's very best, and for all of us simply unforgettable! We will try to come back every year!

We are returning!!!

  • 5 of 5

On June 10th, we began our first holiday in The Bahamas. We loved the rental cottage with all it's charm, only steps away from the gorgeous turquoise water and cozy private beach. It was a delight from the beginning with our reservations, along with the lovely, welcoming property manager, to our departure day which came too quickly. Excellent rental value and very professional This rental succeeded our expectations. Thank you for making our island vacation so special. We are looking forward to returning to the Sunrise oceanfront property. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Don't forget to bring your snorkel mask!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage from April 12-17 2016. It was exactly as seen on the pictures and as described. The ocean access from the cottage is on a rock, but there is a beach a few minutes away that is all sand. Denise, the manager was friendly and helpful. We had an early arrival and a late departure and in both cases, it was no problem. The cottage is a bit out of the way so if travelling with small children or people with mobility issues, a car is probably a good idea. In our case, we used the jitney bus and never had to wait very long for transportation. The closest store and bus stop are approx. 15-20 minutes walk away as you can't really walk fast due to the heat! All in all a great stay and great experience.

Nous avons loué cette propriété du 12-17 avril 2016. Le chalet était exactement comme sur les photos et la description. L'accès à l'eau du chalet est sur une grosse roche, mais il y a une plage de sable à quelques minutes du chalet. Denise, la responsable du chalet est amicale et aidante. Nous avions une arrivée tôt et un départ tardif et dans les deux cas, il n'y avait aucun problème. Le chalet est un peu loin de tout, donc si vous voyagez avec de jeunes enfants ou des personnes à mobilité réduite, une auto serait probablement une bonne idée. Dans notre cas, nous avons utilisé les autobus jitney et n'avons pas eu à attendre très longtems pour le transport. L'épicerie et l'arrêt d'autobus les plus proches sont à environ 15-20 minutes de marche puisqu'il fait chaud et que c'est donc impossible de marcher rapidement! Nous avons eu une belle expérience et un très beau séjour.
