Pretty much perfect
"Great location. Awesome beach and wonderful views. We stayed in unit 8. It looks just like the pictures. Peter was helpful with a printed up guide explaining what and how to do things. Everything was clean,. nice thick towels. Crisp sheets. comfy beds. We had a great vacation and renting this apartment was a good idea. For one thing we could go into all the resorts and check them out. Our favorite was Sandals.. as in 100% loved it. Breezes was filthy and full of collage kids to the hilt, got a refund after being there half hour and went to Sandals again. The number 10 bus was fun and takes you everywhere you want to go. Grocery stores are down the street. I would recommend city market rather than supervalue for the prices. Shocked to see some grocery prices!! I would suggest grabbing condiment packets and whatnot to save paying 4 bucks for ketchup or a mini mayo jar. grab a few rolls of TP as well. If you run out you might be out of luck. You'll be happy you rented this vacation rental though!! Feel what its like to live in the Bahamas for a minute. Life is good there! I can't wait to go back to sunset cove. I loved the coconut trees"

Perfect accommodations for our group of scuba divers
"Our group of 5 divers were all very pleased with our stay, 3 of us in this unit and 2 more in Exuma (#1). Right on the water just west of Sandyport, with amazing views, private, quiet, and easy access to Cable Beach and downtown Nassau on the #10 jitney route. The units were nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. The fine folks at Stuart Cove's dive shop picked us up and dropped us off right across the street from our apartments, so no rental cars to deal with or pay for. Owners Mary and Peter were a joy to work with getting the rentals set up and while on the island. I highly recommend these accommodations."

Great Expectations Come True!
"Abaco 8 was more than what we expected! The pictures did it justice, it is exactly what you get. With the doors and windows open, the breezes cooled the apartment wonderfully. The sunsets were incredible and the sun shining on the water reflected the many shades of aqua and teal. It was beautiful. Mary and Peter were the perfect hosts greeting us when we arrived and making sure if we needed anything to let them know. We felt very safe with the night security guard who was very nice. The other guests were quiet and friendly. We enjoyed the bus ride and was much more affordable than taxis! We have already set our dates for next year!"

A perfect spot, close to downtown Nassau but secluded enough
"A great place to stay. The apartments were spacious, well-equipped kitchens. En bus routes to downtown Nassau, although a car would be a good idea if you want to explore the island. Peter and Mary were perfect hosts."
This place is wonderful
"I went down with my dad and another friend and we wanted a place that was not in the middle of the tourist stuff but that still had access to everything within a few minutes. When I found this place it looked pretty good online and the price was very good for 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It exceeded my expectations. There are 2 nice bedrooms on the main level that have bathrooms attached and a nice loft area with 2 single beds. I gave the old guys the 2 bedrooms downstairs and I stayed up top. There is a grocery store a short ride away so we stocked up and fixed a meal or two there every day. They have it stocked with pans for cooking and plenty of dishes. The bus stop was right outside and we rode it into town for 1.25 each way. You only wait a few minutes for one. There are a bunch coming by all the time. Nesbitts is a little restaurant across the street and it's more of a local haunt. That's a good thing though since I was able to get a cheeseburger and fries for 6 bucks. That's going to be $15 down by the Straw Market."

This place is wonderful
"I would love to share my opinion of Sunset Cove (specifically Abaco #8) experience with anyone planning a trip to Nassau. I was somewhat apprehensive about booking an apartment on-line, sight unseen, but took the chance and was not disappointed. The property is exactly as pictured on the web page and our hosts, Peter and Mary, were helpful in every way. Katie helped me with our reservation and made the process easy. Her e-mail replies were very, very prompt and our requests for information were always answered clearly. As part of our reservation process, we had the opportunity to pre-arrange a taxi pickup at the airport. For a small additional fee we were given a 30-minutes grocery store stop on the way to our apartment. Cheryl’s Taxi Service provided the transportation and they are very professional and courteous. Their vans are like new. We also pre-arranged a pickup time for our return to the Nassau airport and Cheryl’s arrived precisely on schedule. Peter and Mary greeted us upon our arrival, helped us with our luggage, and shared helpful information regarding our stay. They live on the property and were always available if a need arose. I was travelling with 3 other ladies and we always felt safe and secure on and around the property. There is a security guard at the front gate in the evenings and we were perfectly comfortable opening our windows at night allowing the wonderful ocean breezes and sounds to come through the apartment."
Received from a Guest
"Hello Mary and Peter,
Now that I’m finally kind of catching up at work from being on vacation, I wanted to “Thank You” so much for the wonderful accomodations and fine hospitality. We truley enjoyed our stay there with you in the Bahamas. The views from the condo are breathtaking. All 3 bedrooms are good size and don’t feel cramped at all. The kitchen facilities are good too.
We spent the most time out on the balcony and on your sandy beachfront area laying on the hammocks. And searching for treasures in the rocks out front. The snokeling was good also, in the area to the right of our condo, around the rock areas once the water wasn’t so rough, or low tide time.
The referral to Cheryl’s taxi was super. Craig was our driver, he taxi us around, made dinner reservations for us and even came into the restaurant with us to make sure we had a table before he left. He was always prompt picking us up and made a great tour guide.
Thanks again Mary and Peter. Feel free to use this on your website for other potential guests to read. "

This ABACO Apartment was perfect for our family of five. Two teenagers and one child. There are two master bedrooms with bathrooms and a loft that features two single beds. There was enough room for our family to have personal space. We were able to cook breakfast and dinner in the kitchen. The complex offers kayaks which we used everyday in the evening to go snorkeling on the reef which is located a short distance from the complex. The snorkeling was the best off of all the beaches we visited. There is a public beach that is rarely used to just off the property. My children enjoyed being able to walk a short distance there. I would highly recommend this property if you are seeking a comfortable place that allows plenty of room to have personal space."

"I rented this lovely beautiful place while my girlfriends and I visited The Bahamas. Couldn’t have chosen better. The place is so spacious, colorful, and nothing but the ocean right behind us. Access to the beach waters in a 1/2 second from when you come out the unit. The owner was there to meet us, give the tour of the unit and plenty of brochures and info was provided. I read reviews before I ever decide to rent a place, and sometimes I feel people can’t always be satisfied. There are always those that may nit pick. Well, for me and my friends, we didn’t have anything to whine or complain about, so for this unit I’m staying positive. Sure the place isn'’t like my home, but this is a place when you visit the Bahamas you would rent here again. Clean, spacious, AC that works, free WiFi, huge Flat screen in the living room area, right next to a balcony. There are 2 balconies – 1 in the living room area and the other outside the master bedroom. But who is there on vacation to watch TV? So again I say on my next trip back to the Bahamas this is where I will stay. I have pics but haven’t uploaded them yet and will post later. But what you see here as to being advertised is true to the EYE..."
Beautiful Views, Excellent attention and help from owners
"Had a wonderful stay in this 1 bedroom; the view was beautiful and easy access to the beach was really appreciated. Although our room did not initially have a phone, it was installed mid-way through out stay as the room had just been renovated. Both Peter and Mary were very helpful in all our needs, from travel advice to incidental requests. I felt their door was always open and if we needed anything or had a question, they were ready and willing to assist. We had a great time and would love to come back again"

We had a wonderful time!
"We were four ladies staying for five nights. We each had a bed, thanks to the two single beds in the loft. It was our first time in the Bahamas and we really enjoyed our stay. There are security staff outside the property all night - so we felt very safe. Nesbitt’s (local bar/grill) is a two minute walk across the street. The local bus stops just outside the unit - we took big advantage of that - the local buses are a blast to ride! The taxi company recommended by the owners was also very professional and very reliable. The sandy part of the beach is just a brief stroll (it’s rocky directly in front of the unit). The sunsets are beautiful! We had a wonderful time!!"

"Easy communication with Pete and Mary. Comfortable accommodations, gorgeous view. Received it in pristine condition. Nicely set up and furnished. A/C is quiet and very efficient. The kitchen has all the basic equipment you need in good condition. If you like to cook, you might want some more utensils (such as measuring cups and mixing bowls, that sort of thing) Otherwise, it is perfect. I loved how the ocean waves lulled me to sleep every night, and waking up to the great view!"

heaven is here
So love it here that I have extended my stay - in fact i could live here! its a spacious 2 bedroom 2.5 bathroom two storey apartment in a small block of apartments in Nassau, on absolute oceanfront with wonderful views of the ocean and sunsets. Being solid construction you can't hear anything but the lapping of the ocean. There are hummocks in the coconut palms on edge of ocean and a sandy beach adjacent. I love the free kayaks and paddle one each morning around to Sandyport, my favourite long white sandy beach. Supermarket just 1.3klms away - local air-condition (usually) jitneys can take you there and onto downtown Nassau (about 12 klm east) for $1.25. The managers live next door to this apartment - Peter (from Canada) and Mary (from Scotland) and nothing is too much trouble for them. Feeling very safe and cared for as a solo traveller. I will be back for sure! I recommend Managers offer to arrange taxi to meet you at airport and take you to supermarket before taking here - makes it all so easy! Its cheaper to book return taxi to airport."
