When we arrived at the sunset cove Mary the owner was there to greet us. She gave us all the fantastic information we needed to know as we have never stayed in the bahamas. The villa was very clean & so lovely with plenty of room and facilities.
We would definitely stay there again next trip. Thank you again to Mary & Peter.
What a great place to stay! We could see palm trees and beachfront right out our balcony and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. The beach was right outside - hardly any walk at all to get there - and it was fun to explore the tide pools at low tide. This is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit with lots of space to spread out. We were very comfortable. We had such a relaxing vacation.
Flamingo Cay is one of a handful rental apartments in the same building. You may want to look at the other properties of the owners and pick the one you like the most. We had one on the second/third floor, which we picked for the views. If you want to be right on the sandy deck without opening / closing gates with a key, it is probably better to stay in one of the rentals on the first floor.
The view is gorgeous especially in the evenings with the sunset. We liked the kayaking and the nearby beach (on low tide only). It is definitely away from the Nassau crowds, but I would recommend a rental car. Walking without side walk on the busy street is not recommended, We managed fine hopping on/off the public buses to get what we needed.
We loved the kayaks, but I wasn't able to get the 2-seater down/up the stairs into the ocean. Two strong people can probably manage, but I had 3 girls (wife and daughters) with me, so there was no way, I could do this. The one-man-kayaks work great and are not heavy, so we used those.
We only dealt with Peter (the owner) and he was great helping us into the flat and answering our questions.
I would definitely considering going back to the same property, if Nassau is on the schedule again.
I stayed at the Flamingo Cay Apartment for upwards of a month while on business in Nassau, and it was wonderful. Peter and Mary were very gracious hosts during my long stay. The rooms were kept immaculate and are very spacious and comfortable. Not to mention the location is on top of the water with fantastic sunset views every evening. Extremely close to restaurants and the airport made it very convenient when I worked or wanted to get out. I have stayed at numerous resorts and hotels while on business in Nassau, and I found this to be a much more relaxing experience when not working. Wish I could have stayed longer!!!
