This was our first visit to the Bahamas and it was really amazing. Sonia welcomed us right away and her husband met us upon arrival to give us a tour of the place. They also arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport which made me feel much more at ease. Sonia suggested that we go to the grocery store on the way from the airport which was the right move because it was out of the way once we got to the apartment.
The apartment was nice and we felt right at home immediately. I was able to cook comfortably which is a part of why we chose to get this rental rather than a hotel. All of the appliances and furnishings were great to use. I didn't expect to have access to a backyard which was a really pleasant surprise.
Saunders beach was within walking distance and never crowded and extremely beautiful. The Fish Fry is even closer and the food was amazing. We spent one day downtown and visited Junkanoo beach which was also nearby. The Straw market was so incredible and downtown is a very short bus ride from the rental. Cable beach is also not too far and there was also information about snorkeling and other activities readily available.
We definitely wanted to feel like we were in a neighborhood rather than an overly touristy area. This place fit the bill perfectly. There are convenience stores nearby and other restaurants too. Sonia really took excellent care of us checking in on us throughout our stay to make sure it was as comfortable as possible. I really appreciated the hospitality and the care we were shown while away. I've already begun planning our next vacation there. Thanks so much for everything Sonia!
