Very Clean condo and the bus makes it very easy to get around. Quiet area.

  • 4 of 5

One thing that made us crazy was no television. My assumption seeing the television 📺� in the description was something other than Netflix so be aware....you do NOT have television. I would also suggest shades in the bedrooms that darken them for sleep. Snow White sheers over the windows that do no shading. I also assumed that I would walk out to an ocean view. Apartment 7 is actually overlooking the parking area and your views are the spaces between buildings. Owners are very nice and it’s a great place for a budget trip to the Island as long as you are fine with the above mentioned items.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time Susan! We try to be as clear as possible regarding what's available on the TV, so we're not sure how you missed that info. We did have a review of our VRBO info, as well as the literature we send out to our guests, and it seems pretty clear. The flatscreen has a large selection of movies and TV series on hard-drive, Netflix and the apartment has good WiFi-internet-access. We're working on darkening the bedrooms a little more ... Tina's working on it! Cheers Erik & Tina Nov 13 2017: Tina has installed additional room-darkening drapes, along with the sheers. Its considerably darker now, for those of you that prefer it that way.:)

Quiet and clean but we had a couple of dislikes

  • 4 of 5

First, let me say the place is very clean and we'll kept. It is a safe, gated complex and that is a good thing.The location is in a quiet area and we really enjoyed that. However, access to the beach was not easy. There are 2 nice pools but we like to spend time on the beach and that was really not possible. Maybe if beach chairs were in the condo it would have been better.No regular cable, only movies and Netflix. Also not a good thing. One t.v. I wish that the master bedroom would have had one. We may have not read the descriptipn saying there was only one. You pay $120.00 for the cleaning lady and she does not come the whole time you are there. Only at the end of your stay to clean. A little steep compared to other places we have stayed. The owners are very nice people but I think we would go somewhere with more Beach access if we go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa; Thanks for being our guests! We're glad you had a great time! You're correct, the beach that's accessed from the Delaporte property doesn't have beach chairs. The available lounge chairs are around the two pool sun decks only. We haven't heard from any other guests that they had any issue getting on the beach, etc. The flatscreen TV has Netflix and movies on hard-drive (as is noted in all of our literature and on VRBO). When you arrived, our apartment was cleaned and laundered from end to end. We work hard to make sure things are perfect in this regard. Linens are fresh and in top condition. Most of our guests appreciate this and appreciatively comment to us regularly. This is largely because of our local housekeeper's attention. There isn't a way for us to get money to her, hence our guests leave her fee upon their departure (as is noted in on our VRBO and in all literature we shared with you). Cheers Erik & TIna

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our time at Delaporte. The apartment was spotless, and had everything we needed. The owners (Erik and Tina) were so quick with responses to any concern or questions thoughout the process. They also provided a wealth of information about how to get around the island, local restaurants and shops, and attractions. As terrific is that is, the most wonderful part of the trip was the ocean, just steps from the apartment. Ocean views from all sides of the wraparound deck. Our favorite was the "red deck", which is shaded by a gorgeous flowering tree, and has a ladder down into what feels like your own private tropical lagoon. The other pool was perfect for watching the sunset every evening. The restaurants within easy walking distance (we did not rent a car, as the jitney and our feet got us everywhere we needed to go) were terrific. We especially loved Blue Sail, just around the lagoon from the apartment. We had a wonderful time, and can't wait to return.

Beautiful place in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This spacious condo provided all the amenites of home. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The beach was amazing and our family did lots of snorkelling. We found sand dollars and conch shells which we brought home. The two pools were clean and most times we had them to ourself. It was situated in a gated community and was close to many amenities. A short walk to Sandyport for dinner at Spritz or the Twisted Lime and not too far from the grocery store. The jitney bus#10 stops right out the front gate and was our mode of transportation to and from downtown. Erik was always available and made us feel right at home. Definitely planning a return visit soon! Everyone was so welcoming.

First time in Nassau and a perfect base to wander around.

  • 5 of 5

We decide to rent these apartment based only on what you get from Internet and the fact was that it was more than expected!

Comunication with Eric, the owner, was fast and impeccable, as it was the cleanness of the appt. The rental process was simple and quick.

The flat is ample, bright and located out of the rumble of the city. We quickly took the habit of having breakfast in the balcony, overlooking both beaches you can see from the spot.

The kitchen is full equipped and, needless to say, allowed us to have a pair of dinners without having to look for a restaurant with ocean view.

Moving around is easy and safe, we ask some directions from the security women and men at the gate of the compound who were very polite and precise in the directions they gave us.

We did not rent a car as we moved around between downtown Nassau / Delaporte Point and JITNEY Nbr. 10 and 12 are the best way for going back and forth. It is cheap and funny running on a 10/15 minutes schedule.

We spent a wonderful holidays and Eric`s Apartment NUMBER SEVEN, is the place of choice if you want to live some days in a beautiful place, steps from Cable Beach and surrounded by peace...

Great trip

  • 4 of 5

My husband, sister and my BIL stayed a week! This condo was almost like being at our own private island. The beach was empty and the pool was also almost daily (we enjoyed that). The water was simply gorgeous. The condo was clean, and had everything we needed. We did not rent a car and successfully took the bus or a cab wherever we had to go. My only suggestion is for the owners to invest in some room darkening shades! Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Savanna; We also enjoy the fact that the apartment is clos to everything, but the beaches and pools are often unoccupied. As for window shades ... we have sheers everywhere, but they aren't darkening. The sheers allow the breezes in. The issue we've had with shades is that our guests have had problems operating them, and they got broken. However, we're searching for a solution as we speak. Cheers E&T
