Charming Bahamian cottage in a quiet residential area on the eastern end of the island just 50 meters from the sea and a small beach to enjoy and within walking distance of famous Montagu Beach. Set in a lush tropical private garden

The space

“Pandacan" is a charming Bahamian cottage in a quiet residential area on the eastern end of the island just 50 meters from the sea and a small beach to enjoy and within walking distance of famous Montagu Beach. Set in a lush tropical private garden, with a pretty patio and barbeque area, “Pandacan", (named after the owner's great-grandmother's house in Hong Kong), is ideal for three guests. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom, a bright and airy open space living area with a high ceiling, lots of island breezes and a delightful garden patio with barbeque facilities. It is within walking distance of the local bus (jitney) route. Guests have access to a small private beach just a short walk away. The owners, Jonathan and Shawna, live just around the corner and are always available to answer questions or help out.

Guest access

The cottage and garden are completely private for renters but just a very short walk away is a private beach only for people living on this small street. Take a cocktail down to the beach and watch the sunset, have a dip and a snorkel, dangle your toes in the sea or just lie on the sand soaking up the sun.

Interaction with guests

The owners of Pandacan are a young couple who live and work nearby. (They operate a Food Truck, 'Conchie Joe's' on nearby Montagu Beach.) They are available by phone 24 hours a day and are more than happy to help their guests with information on anything to do with the Bahamas.

Shawna and Jonathan were welcoming and helpful on arrival and whenever we were in contact throughout our stay. They provided a fruit bowl and even gave us a lift into Nassau one of the days of our stay. In addition they provided a lot of helpful information on the local area and getting around. The cottage is spacious, clean and comfortable with lovely outdoor space. The wifi and air conditioning were both great and it has all the other appliances you would expect in a modern property. We had a great holiday.

We had a fantastic stay at Shawna's Private Charming Cottage Garden. Easy to communicate with Shawna very friendly and easy check in check out. Location was good 5/10minutes walk to nearest beach. Frequent bus service available down town and other beaches. Cottage itself was very clean and well equipped. The cold water, beers and frosted mugs were an excellent touch made us feel very welcome. Had constant communication with Shawna and Jonathan throughout vacation if we had any problems. Would definitely recommend this lovely place. Hopefully will be back soon. Thanks for having us.

Shawna and Jon were very welcoming hosts, with great communication and offering helpful advice in how best to enjoy Nassau. The property was even better than the photos - it was very clean and well maintained and located in a pleasant neighbourhood. I highly recommend this property and host.

Consummate hosts. Welcoming homely environment. Superb well presented facilities. The smallest details were seen to including provision of beach towels, beach bag, cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and so much more.  Perfect location for a family as lots of space outside for children to play. The private beach is a wonderful treat. Close proximity to town by car or bus which is affordable at $1.25 for adults and $0.75 for children.  If you just want to stay in and relax on the large comfy sofa, there are books of various genres to read, many television programs or an array of DVDs to choose from. A definite must stay if you find yourself in the Bahamas.  Thank you Shawna for allowing us to have a wonderful time.

Shawn and Jonathan's place was incredible. If you're looking for the best time in the Bahamas - go here. Better than any resort. Everything they state in the description and entire Air BnB posting is accurate and valid. The private beach is across their neighborhood street, through a gate. Definitely was small but it was a perfect oasis. We walked to a bunch of places -- to off set all the food and drink we consumed but we did take the jitney a few times. Really easy and cheap. We befriended a local driver and he took us everywhere. If you can, and if you go! Look out for Franki Bahama. Great guy. Try conch everything -- conch salad, fritters, cracked. It's delicious. The small food booths by the Paradise Island bridge are incredible. You're not missing much by not seeing Atlantis or the rest of PI -- but the Casino and the public beach over there were a good time. If you can manage it price and time wise, take the Blue Lagoon tour that leaves from Margaritaville. Day of fun and you are offered the chance, for an upgrade of course, to swim with dolphins. If you want to go to the Bahamas and stay in Nassau, there's two things you need to know. 1. Figure out what local and what resort things you wanna do -- you can learn a majority of through research. 2. Stay at Shawna and Jonathan's place.

Shawna and Jonathan's cottage was perfect for our Anniversary getaway. We have visited the island before and stayed in a commercial property. The cottage experience, nestled in the quiet Dick's Point area was all that it promised to be. Very clean, spacious and inviting!! The AC units worked great and we loved the view from the (URL HIDDEN) the little things!! We rode the local bus (Jitney 11) most days and I will say that was somewhat of a challenge. We rarely found one that traveled East to Dick's Point from Downtown so we had to get off at Montague Beach and walk down. It was not a long walk, but not as safe because the sidewalk ended and there was a very limited shoulder.
