“Great cottage for kids and families”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had two families staying in this lovely cottage, four adults and four young kids, and it was very roomy and comfortable! The cottage and the property are very nice, well kept, and perfectly suited to our needs. The manager Denise was available every time we called to answer questions, and very proactive in getting out in front of the one minor problem we had when the city water main broke (we never ran out at the house thanks to the filtered water tank, and had plenty of spare drinking water had the repairs taken too long, which they didn't). The taxi driver recommended by Denise, Hilton Rahming, was great and a very cool guy! He was knowledgeable about the island and the best places to get whatever we needed, and when we asked him to drive for us later in the week he was always available and very punctual. He was the only driver we used the whole time we were there and I will be calling on him again next time I go to Nassau.

If I had to have ONE complaint about the place it would be that the closest beach had a lot of broken glass around on the shore, but out in the water it was fine (soft sand, no glass that I saw). The small private beach at the cottage was very nice, but it wasn't very big and not a lot of sand for the kids to play in. We ended up getting Hilton to drive us to Junkanoo Beach for the last couple of days, where there was still a bit of glass around, but at least we could rent umbrellas and chairs.

All in all this Cottage was a very positive experience for our families. 8.5/10, would definitely rent again!

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at the cottage with our daughter for two nights at the end of an extended visit to the Bahamas. I found the cottage on Trip Advisor and Martina promptly replied to all our queries and allowed us to arrive early on our first day and stay late on the last, making it very convenient to catch our late evening flight home. Tip - use the Trip Advisor mailbox system; Martina's reply to my first enquiry went into my personal mailbox spam folder and I didn't find it until after we had left!

The cottage, located in a quiet safe neighbourhood, is clean and simply furnished, but has everything you would need for an extended stay. Air conditioning is very efficient. The large porch looks out across a generously sized garden to the ocean. The sea front at the foot of the garden is rocky and great for swimming in the crystal clear water. If you want sand, the adjacent local's beach is a couple of minutes walk away. You can walk to the supermarket (20 minutes) but you really need a car to explore the island and get the most out of your stay.

A great place to chill out and soak up the Bahamian sunshine.

“Absolutely Fabulous”

We feel so lucky to have found Martina's cottage on Trip Advisor. We spent 4 nights here. The cottage is right on the beach on the eastern tip of the island so is away from all the hustle and commotion of the tourist area. We rented a car to get around but were happy to escape back to the peace and beauty of the cottage. The home is very comfortable and clean and Martina was very gracious-even met us at the airport to make sure we knew how to get there and to welcome us personally. Having the sea in the backyard with the sound of the waves and the nice breeze coming in through the french doors was heaven. My only complaint was having to leave!

“Best Vacation so far!”

This is a home away from home in a tropical paradise. The house was VERY clean and we enjoyed the porch the best. It is located close enought to the shopping and restaurants, but far enough away to make it feel more private. We enjoyed cooking our meals at the house and using the grill for burgers. The grocery store was just up the road, so we were able to stock the frig and cabinet with all our goodies.
We would definately recommend this house.
Hoping to come back real soon.

“Charming cottage near the sights but out of the Nassau congestion”
Reviewed 3 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We (two couples) enjoyed our 5 night stay at the cottage. The location was perfect - in a select area not far from Nassau but much quieter than downtown. The owner, Martina, was very helpful and communicated promptly by email. The cottage is not fancy, but comfortable with all necessary facilities provided. You do need a car, but parking is easy.

While we were there the refrigerator was not working properly to keep things cool. The owner said she would check it out. We did some laundry in the washing machine and the white garments turned brown - apparently a common problem with the local water supply. We were kept awake by barking dogs, but this is also common on the island. There is an old junk car parked in the garden next to the cottage which rather spoils the appearance. There were less light bulbs than light sockets.

However, the positive aspects of the cottage - sitting out on the shaded patio enjoying meals near the shore, being able to walk to a nearby swimming beach, having a good wifi connection - were more than sufficient to outweigh any negatives.

Management Response

Sorry to have learned about the fridge afterwards. I would have had it checked and repaired immediately. The fridge is in full operation!
There is a sign on the washing machine that the city water quality is poor on the island in general, and sometimes rusty (be aware washing white). Because of the poor city water quality there is a complete water system installed outside the cottage with 2 water filters to clean the city water before it runs into the house. I do the best I can!
Yes, there are dogs on our island, everywhere.
The old car is my 1979 Mercedes Benz I had imported from Germany when I moved to the island. No negative comments until now. The car can be easily removed if necessary.
