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.
