Oceanfront, Romantic Cottage in Nassau's Exclusive East End

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)


An authentic experience unlike any other. Available for select rentals for the very first time.

Imagine a vintage Bahamian cottage directly on the water! Million dollar views over to Paradise Island from your back patio. Original Abacos pine hardwood floors throughout. French doors. High ceilings. Exposed beams. And so much more.

Located on Nassau's prestigious and elite Eastern End, Sea Song offers a rare opportunity to experience the 'Real Bahamas.' It is surrounded by multimillion dollar mansions, lush private compounds and waterfront villas. In fact, our very street is known as 'Embassy Row' in some circles since neighbors include the private homes of the Acting U.S. Embassador, Former Deputy Prime Minister of the Bahamas, Chinese Ambassador, Brazilian Ambassador and several other high-ranking diplomats we can't mention. While tucked away in a quiet part of the island, far away from the tourists, Sea Song is conveniently located near the very best that Nassau has to offer. It's only a few minutes by car to the island's finest beaches, restaurants, gambling, art galleries, diving and shopping. The cottage is also conveniently located to Atlantis for those that want to enjoy the casino and water park.

Sea Song Cottage is a destination unto itself. A place to celebrate romance. To regenerate. To escape.


Sea Song Cottage was built nearly 70 years ago by one of the country's preeminent families. As the exclusive owners of Southeby's Real Estate in the Bahamas, they know a thing or two about fine properties!

Carefully conceived and constructed, Sea Song features architectural elements that embody the very essence of Bahamian design. The original wood floors are made from Abacos pine which is legendary for its durability and beauty. The walls are constructed of hand-shaped concrete and there is a pair of French doors that opens onto the waterfront patio. The bedroom also opens to the rear patio and features extensive 180-degree water views through a glass door as well as several windows.


Every room has a million dollar view. From the bedroom with its glass door and two bookend windows to the living room with its French doors. Even the shower has an oceanfront view!

The oceanfront rear patio overlooks Paradise Island as well as pristine Atholl Island (which is home to a national reef park). At night, you can enjoy city light views from the world-famous Atlantis Resort as well as the exclusive Ocean Club (prominently featured in the James Bond blockbuster, Casino Royale).

We look forward to sharing Sea Song with you!

Statement: Sea Song is a vintage cottage located directly on the ocean in a developing first-world country. Guests who love this special and unique home tend to be independent, flexible and good humored. For those visitors to Nassau who prefer more coddling, we respectfully recommend Atlantis and Ocean Club.

Restrictions: No smoking, no pets, no children under 17 years of age. Sea Song is a vintage cottage located directly on the ocean. It also contains family heirlooms, crystal kitchenware and other items that are inherently fragile. As such, Sea Song is a setting far better suited for more mature guests.

About David Morrison

Sea Song's owner is a successful, internationally recognized entrepreneur and Ivy League MBA. This uniquely special home represents the owner's fifteen year search for the 'perfect Caribbean cottage.' He wanted a refuge that was within easy grasp of a quaint, metropolitan city, but was also exceptionally quiet and peaceful. Sea Song is such a place. A tribute to its Bahamian heritage, this very special oceanfront cottage has a clean, rustic feeling that is blended with modern conveniences such as high-speed WiFi, ductless air conditioning and cable TV.

David Morrison purchased this cottage in 2010

Why David Morrison chose New Providence

Sea Song Cottage is located on Nassau's prestigious and exclusive East End. Located directly on the ocean, it offers a unique haven for those seeking to experience the 'true Bahamas.' It was built nearly 70 years ago by a leading Bahamian family and is now available for rental for the very first time! Sea Song offers guests a unique opportunity to relax directly on their own waterfront property while exploring the very best that Nassau has to offer. World class restaurants, shopping, casinos and beaches are only a few minutes away by car.

What makes this cottage unique

While the East End is conveniently located from the island's exotic hum, downtown Nassau and Paradise Island are only minutes away by car. Shop at some of the finest retail establishments in the world on Bay Street. And enjoy world-class casinos and entertainment at Atlantis. Explore the island and then kick back at your very own waterfront cottage and share a Bahamian beer while watching the tide come in!

Magical, Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sea Song. It was so peaceful that we only ventured downtown one day to explore Nassau. The only word I can think of to explain our experience is magical. We sat on the porch and watched a variety of sea life float through the clear water. It was such a quiet neighborhood. Arnold's service was superb and I so appreciate all of your other suggestions as well. We will definitely be back for another stay at the cottage.

Thanks again for the excellent experience of renting your home. I appreciate you sharing it. I've rented homes through VRBO before but never had such great service and suggestions from an owner.

I wish you a prosperous New Year and hope to be back to Sea Song in 2014.

Peace and seclusion-- a perfect escape.

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks for the use of Sea Song. We had a fabulous time and were transported back over thirty years to when we used to live in a beach house just down the road. Waking up each morning to look out over Athol Island was great and one morning we saw two dolphins

just off the house, something that we had never seen from land. Magical!

Thank you again. We hope to return and stay for longer in the not too distant future.

Everything we expected it to was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Seasong cottage. We loved it and it will be forever remembered! What a peaceful, relaxing location. The stairs going down into the water have been named “Engagement Rock”. The love of my life proposed to me the evening we arrived…what a surprise!

Thanks for making it available to us. We are so happy that we shared that week together…it was perfect for us and we are grateful!

Singing the praises of SeaSong

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage is a dream come true. Simple, yet refined, the accommodations fit our needs and wants enabling our five day retreat. We made a spectacular breakfast every morning in the fully equipped kitchen, then enjoyed it on the back patio watching sailboats in the distance skim across the water. We swam in the ocean through the rear of the property, but take the sea steps with care as algae builds up making them slippery. We slept with the door open, lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. It was a very specially experience and one we intend to repeat.

An absolute gem in the Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and Wow, what can we say,,, This place is just the most romantic spot! We spent 7 relaxing days here. The ocean front views are spectacular! Stone steps lead right down into the water where we snorkeled and waded in the clear turquoise waters. Sea cottage is simply but beautifully appointed. Darling bedroom and kitchen equipped with everything we needed to prepare breakfast and dinner. We hope to return!

A Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

"Hi David, I had an amazing time at Sea Song, words can not describe what a treasure you have in that place, It was amazing to have my own private patio in the back overlooking the ocean and at night so very romantic, especially when I put candles outside, and so soothing to wake up every morning with the sound of the ocean beating against the rocks, the decor of the cottage was very beautiful you can tell a lot of thought went into every piece of furniture, very peaceful and clean, and the location is not far from town, you can catch the bus right outside the gate. The cottage is equipped with all of your basic needs and you feel like your staying in a little piece of Bahamian history, again I want to thank you for this experience, thanks again for everything."
