About Catherine Yaque

This property has been in our family for 2 generations. Over the years we have both lived in it and rented it. We manage the unit ourselves and stay in it frequently so we are sure the house is in great condition for our guests. In 2014 we took a break from renting it and used it ourselves and also spent some time there upgrading things, replacing bedding, painting and generally improving the house. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Catherine Yaque purchased this townhome in 1971

Why Catherine Yaque chose Nassau

Ideal location on the island, right in the middle, very close to the shopping, airport and restaurants. Only 10 minutes from downtown Nassau. We love the privacy of this gated community, which has been a big reason we kept this house for so many years. There is a 24 hour security gate and friendly staff to ensure a safe and fun experience.

What makes this townhome unique

House is literally 10 steps from the pool and a further 10 steps to the ocean.

The house sleeps 6 adults comfortably. With advance notice we can arrange for a pack & play cot & high chair for small children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing stay at Delaporte Point in Nassau! We did not know exactly what to expect, but the desciption was exactly right. You are truly right on the water, the view is gorgeous, a short walk away from a secluded beach that we almost always had completely to ourselves & steps away from both pools. The house was clean and ready for us, washer/dryer right in the kitchen was great to have on hand. Accommodations worked great for our family of 6 adults and one toddler. The top floor is a suite with bedroom/bath and small balcony overlooking the ocean. Couldn't have stayed in a better place for the price anywhere in the Bahamas!!!

Relaxing, quiet, clean, and beautiful beachfront condominium!

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasure it was to stay at this condo on the west side of Nassau. My family (including two boys, ages 11 & 13) thoroughly enjoyed it, including the large patio overlooking the water, the spacious living/dining room, and the comfortable bedrooms. The manager, Barbara, was extremely helpful and friendly, and even drove us to the grocery store the day we arrived to stock up. I think my boys' favorite feature was the very fast Wi-Fi internet, though mom & dad only used it to look up places we were going to visit.

The location was very good if you want to be on the water, but out of the hustle & bustle of downtown. We paid $40 for cab rides for 4 people to/from the airport and to Paradise Island and Atlantis. Appreciated the owner's recommendation to book a night at the Comfort Suites on Paradise Island, which offers day passes at Atlantis for 2 days (the day you check in & the day you leave) for 1 night hotel booking, which is 1/2 the cost of tickets directly from the resort. The daylong excursion to Exuma Keys on Powerboat Adventures (which also departs from Paradise Island) was a major highlight for us, thanks to the owner's suggestion.

Only downsides were the overly firm mattresses, and the toilet on the ground floor not working (parts are on order). Otherwise, it's in great shape.

Highly recommended!

Amazing location friendly helpful owner and manager.

  • 4 of 5

This place has an amazing view and is quiet and away from the cruise ship and all inclusive scene. Restaurants and markets in walking distance. Good snorkeling just outside the door! Our 4 kids all enjoyed themselves despite one of them getting a stomach bug (on the plane on the way here) which was passed to my wife and another daughter.

The downsides were the downstairs toilet wasn't working. I imagine it will be fixed soon. The upstairs window AC is very loud, but we ran it for a little while before going to bed and turned it off. I was fine, but my wife found the bed, or possibly the pillows, uncomfortable. The only other issue

Overall, if we come back to New Providence, we would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: So sorry you had problems with the downstairs toilet. We have the newest models of these toilets and they are well maintained by the on-site office, but in this case a part needed replacing that had to be ordered. The 3rd floor does not have the central air unfortunately so we have to have a wall unit in there. I will look into having it serviced as well as review our pillows and mattresses. We appreciate the feedback.

I wrote a review of this condo and VRBO misprinted my star rating. They printed a 3 star rating and I gave it a 5 star rating. I could not edit it so I'm writing to correct this for anyone reading a review of this property. It was excellent.

Townhouse

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 months at this townhome and it felt just like home. The location was perfect and we didn't need a car because public transportation was right outside the gate. The condo was very clean and well maintained. There was everything you would need, fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs, umbrella and plenty of linens. You only need to shop for your food and bring your clothes. There is a lot to see in Nassau and Paradise Island. There were many restaurants, just a bus ride away. The bus stops at 7:00pm but there are taxis available after the bus stops. The staff at the complex were very helpful and friendly, as were Natalia, the condo manager and Catherine the owner. My grand children visited for I week and they loved the Dolphin Encounter at Blue Lagoon and swimming off the dock at the condo. I loved visiting Atlantis but found it pricey. I would definitely go back.

Nassau Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 4 nights and had a blast. We came with our twin 15 year old boys, and each had his own bedroom. The home is conveniently located near the Sheraton Hotel and numerous restaurants. We had a car and visited the town and shops. We also visited Atlantis, but we were glad we stayed where we did. The view is phenomenal and the place is delightful. The homes are in a gated community and is so quiet and peaceful. The kitchen is beautiful and opens onto a great room with a remarkable view of the bay. The owners were so nice and flexible. I recommend this home to any family who wants to stay in Nassau, off the beaten path. We actually spent 2 days on day passes at the Sheraton so we could go to the beach and use the fitness center, rent jet skis, and go sailing. It only cost us ~$90 for the 4 of us. So, you can stay in this home and enjoy a nearby beach and hotel amenities.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, children, and I stayed here in June 2012. The location was great. It was far enough from the hustle and bustle of Atlantis, but close enough to stay for a couple of days. It was great for kids. It was perfect for snorkeling. Overall, a great time by all and highly recommended.
