Living the Paradise Island dream. The semi-detached villa is located at the center of Paradise Island within a couple of minutes walking of all that Paradise Island has to offer (Atlantis, beaches, golf course, restaurants, bars).
The complex consists of 16 units scattered in tropical gardens around a swimming pool area. The roomy living and dining area look out onto a private patio with BBQ. The unit has a large en-suite master bedroom and 2 smaller bedrooms (a queen/twin bedroom and a ''bunk beds room') to accommodate a maximum of seven persons with all amenities provided: a fully equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, fridge, stove.
Cable High Speed Internet (Wi-Fi) is provided at no extra charge. The living room has a brand new flat screen TV and the master bedroom has its own cable TV as well.
Bedding and towels are included; maid service can be arranged. There is a check-out cleaning charge depending on the number of persons.
The villa is close to two small supermarkets (a quarter mile and a half mile away respectively) with a large supermarket just across one of the Paradise Island bridges.
Located just east of Florida, The Bahamas consist of over 700 islands, with miles of white and pink sandy beaches. Nassau, on New Providence Island, is the capital of The Bahamas, once known as the piracy center of the world, now home to old fortresses, busy beach resorts, Spring Breakers, is two bridges away from amazing Atlantis (one of the most glamorous island resorts in the world, complete with Marina Village shopping, casino fun and a world famous waterpark), from the Ocean Club Golf Course and from the quiet/gorgeous beaches of Eastern Paradise Island, with their crystal clear 75 degree blue waters, soft white sand and 300 plus days of sunshine a year.
One of our most FAQs is: 'Can we access Atlantis without additional cost when staying at Cloisters Estates?'. Large parts of Atlantis are open to the public without any charge (Marina Village, most of the beaches, casino, bars...) but visiting the water-slides comes at an extra charge for a special Atlantis pass. Unfortunately, an Atlantis pass is not included in our rental charges. We advise you to buy a day pass (two full days of access is a lot for the great waterslides), readily available inside Atlantis (price varies depending on season, typically a day pass is 110,-USD per adult and 80,-USD per child). Staying on Atlantis property itself would rapidly accelerate your family costs (rooms, restaurants...) and you may get an unpleasant surprise on departure as all the Atlantis costs keep on adding up. The affordable holiday is off site. Atlantis is wonderful, but not necessarily the wisest choice for families.
Paradise Island offers easy access to a day cruise to Blue Lagoon Island where you can swim with dolphins or just spend all day in a hammock strung between palm trees.
A small ferry can take you from Paradise Island to Downtown Nassau, with its winding streets of pastel buildings, offers great deals on shopping-souvenirs, straw markets, jewelry, liquor, perfume. The Queen's Staircase, 65 stairs carved out of coral limestone alongside a man-made canyon, offers a great view of the sea and New Providence Island.
Paradise Island is just the best tropical destination you can pick.
Finally, here are the answers to a set of practical questions for the Paradise Island visitor:
* Distance to airport: 30min taxi ride; numerous airlines fly directly to Nassau, including Delta, AA, Spirit, USAir, Jetblue, Westjet, Air Canada and many more;
* Currency: our Bahamian dollar is on par with the USD which makes it an affordable destination for US and European visitors;
* No ferry needed to get to Paradise Island: our island is connected to Nassau by two bridges;
* No need to rent a car - Paradise Island is tiny;
* Supermarkets (3): two to ten minutes away;
* Beach: just steps to superb powdery sandy beach, not crowded;
* Safety on Paradise Island: while Nassau is getting a bit of a reputation safety-wise, Paradise is the safest of all our islands: the streets are well maintained and well-lit for comfortable strolls at night;
* Atlantis acccess: beaches around Atlantis, Atlantis restaurants and casino is open for everyone (no pass needed); Aquaventure Pass' to be purchased onsite at Atlantis for full access to all the waterslides etc. (equivalent to staying at Atlantis); if you want to view the aquarium you need a 'Tour of Atlantis pass' (approximately 30,-USD per person for this world famous underwater marvel; amazing display of marine life; sharks are bred here);
* Atlantis additional info: the villa is a very short walk to Atlantis with its twenty-one restaurants, from casual to formal and its many bars; there are shows and entertainment on site.
At Cloisters Estates you are close to all the amenities of Paradise Island and Nassau, at 'down to earth' prices ; and remember: it is always better in The Bahamas..., whether you're looking for a vacation packed with activities, or to lay around on the beach most of the time, Paradise Island offers both private serenity and plenty of action - a vacation here is whatever you make of it...

Safe and comfortable
The cloisters was a very comfortable home base for my boyfriend and I on our spring break trip to Nassau. We felt really safe and enjoyed walking Paradise Island drive however went off PI as we found food and activities to be too touristy and expensive. We preferred going down town Nassau and to the beaches. Etiene was very welcoming and helpful. We really loved the back porch and the plant life growing around the property. We found the pool of the complex to be a bit green and didn't utilize it but there's no need to as the island has so many gorgeous beaches and fun places to go.
I would highly recommend staying here if you are going to the island. It is very spacious and in a wonderful location.
Thank you so much for your kind words and your warm endorsement of my Paradise Island property. I loved having you as my guests - and you were so considerate as to even make the beds before you left!
Your comment about the common complex pool water did of course not go unnoticed. While I agree with you that the three minute walk to our nearby gorgeous sandy beaches and to the crystal clear and warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, eclipse any need for a common area swimming pool, I want the amenities coming with my property to be impeccable for my guests and therefor, I addressed the pool water issue with the overall Property Manager of the complex instantly upon receipt of your review - there was apparently a pool pump issue when you visited and in the meantime the issue has been fixed.
Please come again - and next time bring some friends: it is indeed a very spacious home and it easily fits seven - the more the merrier, as the saying goes :-)....
In the meantime: good luck in the coming months with your university education.
Overall the place was good, needed a few repairs which did not get fixed while we were there.
The 5 minute walk to the Beach was good, but paying $10.00 per chair & $20.00 for an umbrella was outrageous. To get the the water taxis was a 15 minute walk. The area was very safe which was good because the doors would not lock. The Villa does need repairs and hopefully they were done after we left, as for what we paid, it was not good value for our money
The pool was nice but all the chairs were cracked so you had to be very careful. There is lots of room in the villa would sleep 7, there was only 3 of us and good thing because one shower was out of order.
As for supplies, kitchen was ok, towels - they need more we only got one set each for 2 weeks, the beach were brought over the owner which was nice.
Would we go back - not to the Bahamas - just a little overpriced for everything
Thank you very much for taking the time to rate my property. It is true that my property did need (and got) repair after you and your nice co-visitors left: yes, somebody in your party managed to break off one of the cupboard doors in the kitchen and yes, somehow somebody broke a faucet out of the master bathroom shower wall (whereupon that shower became indeed non-functional) - both of which incidents you duly reported right away and I am sure you remember in both cases I immediately tried to have the appropriate repairman come over right away - but the breakdowns occurred during the Christmas week so that repair services, despite several promises, unfortunately did not turn up (not unusual here in our sunny Caribbean islands...); and yes, the entrance lock was no longer working properly after you had left (I am happy to report it is working again). I have notified general management that you had an issue with the pool chairs at the pool shared with the other villas - and I wil advice my own guests from now on in my Welcome Note that, if uncomfortable with the shared furniture at the pool, they are welcome to take my own featherlight patio/pool chairs to the complex's swimming facilities (hoping that they will bring them back to the villa of course after swimming). I note you liked the closeness (five minute walk) of the beach and that you appreciated my responsiveness (see your extra towels request that I was happy to meet right away - I probably should have been more informative about the on-site communal laundry room). In conclusion, I am sorry you found the exclusivity of Paradise Island to be expensive but I know you understand that of course, I do not control the 10,-USD beach chair rental prices in The Bahamas...
