About Mike

I am a Australian living in Bahamas with my wife. We have numerous villas here that we offer to guests. We make them beautiful and we want you to come and stay at our homes.

You will find us easy to communicate with and that we are nice people, just like you.

I am here for you so dont be shy..

Mike purchased this house in 2015

Why Mike chose Palm Cay

We've lived in the Caribbean for many years but we always come back to The Bahamas. The water quality is beyond description and we love our beaches. Its safe, the people are lovely and the food is great. We love our seafood and have never seen anything as good as this.

The community we share is very quiet and we feel we have the place to ourselves. The facilities here are amazing and the staff service is 1st class. We are very happy with our choice.

What makes this house unique

Brand new villa, right on the beach. Like being on an outer island yet with the convenience of a modern airport and all that Nassau has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Please consider this communication as our outstanding review of our recent stay at Palm Cay. My wife and I spent 4 days at Palm Cay during March of 2016. The rental property was so appealing and well-kept that we decided to return to the Bahamas during the month of May of 2017. As luck would have it we were fortunate enough to rent the same unit we had last year. We were quite pleased with the décor and the appointments of the unit last year. Suffice it to say that we were awed by the updated appointments and new furnishings in the unit this year. Clearly the owners of the property had gone to great lengths to ensure that not only was the property maintained but much of the furniture was completely replaced with new, highly coordinated and thematic characteristics. This reality speaks volumes to the commitment of the property owners to ensure that renters not only experience an immaculately clean rental property, but also a property that is frequently updated with new furnishing. The entire décor resonated well with the tropical theme of being in the Caribbean yet it afforded a degree of comfort that allows you to feel at home. In all candor I give kudos to the property owners and applaud their efforts to provide and maintain a vacation area that affords the renter a place in the Caribbean at a reasonable price.



My wife and I were so pleased with our stay at Palm Cay that we have already begun planning our next trip to the Bahamas for next year. Yes, we plan to stay at Palm Cay! It is a great vacation venue at a very reasonable rental rate. The location is ideal for getting a sober appreciation of island solitude, yet it is close enough to down town Nassau to allow individuals to immerse themselves in the island culture.



My wife and I give the facility a FIVE STAR – rating.





Respectfully yours

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked into Billabong and saw the amazing view of the ocean, we knew we were on vacation! We loved staying in the spacious condo with plenty of room for all of us. Mike, the owner checked in on us and was always available for any questions or information we needed. Palm Cay and the marina is a lovely get away from the bustle of downtown Nassau. The restaurant at the Clubhouse had great service and a good menu and the Dockside Cafe is good for ice cream, snacks and other things. We rented a boat for the day and went out with Braeden as our captain and Julio as our guide and had a great time! The Atlantis water park was fun for the kids for a day (is expensive though) and we had a great meal at The Blue Sail in Cable Beach. We took cabs everywhere (Cheryl's taxi service was great- just make sure to call ahead at least an hour in advance). Would probably try to rent a car next time. My husband is ready to go back - just a really beautiful and relaxing place!

Amazing property - we all LOVED it! The beach is literally in your front yard!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 5 kids- 3 of them being 16 year old girls - and we were all SO impressed! It is definitely it’s own paradise where relaxation is first and foremost!

You are away from the hustle and bustle of Paradise Island - which we loved! We did do a variety of excursions and we often ventured out for dinner. We did rent a mini van and I’m so glad we did, although it is not for the faint of heart!! Driving here is not easy! Luckily our route was often taking us to the same location so we got used to it quickly. You are driving on the left side of the road so that can be tricky!

The house is just as listed, and the pictures do not do it justice! Mike was super easy to work with and all of his recommendations were spot on!

We did not do the fee for the Palm Cay amenities, had we been here with a group of adults only we may have considered it - the adult pool and bar were pretty nice!!

Overall it was one of our best vacations ever!

Highly recommend!!

bathroom-less in paradise.

  • 3 of 5

Palm Cay is truly paradise and was perfect for our little kids (five kids 4-years and younger). Having the beach right out the door is amazing. Having the clubhouse directly next door for last-minute meals, swimming pools, beach games and rentals was a bonus. The pool associated with the condo isn't anything great so we paid the club-fee to use their pools.

Now, why the 3 stars: We had some issues with the bathrooms. There are 3.5 baths but the second floor master toilet continued to plug to the point where we were told the toilet was unusable until someone could take it all apart after our stay. As a result the entire en suite BEDroom began to smell of sewage.

We also noticed a bubble in the kitchen ceiling and alerted the proprietor, with no response. When my nearly two-year-old daughter slipped on the wet tiled kitchen floor and nearly cracked her head open, I realized that water was leaking from that bubble later that same day. Coincidently the shower was running in the second floor twin bedroom's bathroom above the kitchen. When I alerted the proprietor once again he said they'd been having issues and couldn't figure out where the water was coming from. As a result, this bathroom was unusable as well! So we paid for a condo that had 3.5 baths and could really only use 1.5 of them! The dripping water from the ceiling was inconvenient and also quite dangerous.

This is only nit-picking... but the kitchen cabinets were so filled with stuff that we had little to no space to store our food.

Our group is in agreement, we really want to give this place 5 stars. The location, beach, etc is absolute paradise. Had it not been for the bathrooms and feeling a little put out that we paid for en-suite luxuries, this would have made for a perfect five-star vacation.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you for your feedback. So sorry about the toilet blockage in the main bedroom. We did send a plumber there 2 time however he was unable to clear it. When you left he had to remove the whole thing and he was able to extract a toothbrush which had been blocking the drain. It was a messy full day job that could not have been done while occupied. The shower in the second bathroom had a leak after long showers and required jack hammering up of tiles and re-sealing, again an invasive job that couldn't be carried out while occupied. I'll have the housekeeper review the kitchen cabinets. I agree there is not much space for foodstuffs once the glassware, crockery and kitchenware is in place. I am sorry the main toilet and second bedroom shower were out of action in your stay. I thought we had acted promptly to your texts and emails. The guests occupying since your stay are having a wonderful time.

Es war ein traumhafter Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 10 Personen für 11 Nächte auf den Bahamas und hatten zwei Häuser in Palm Cay gebucht.

Vier von uns haben im Haus von Mike übernachtet.

Das Haus ist wirklich super gewesen. Es war noch schöner und luxuriöser Eingerichtet als auf den Fotos zu erkennen ist.

Das Haus war mit allem ausgestattet was das Herz begehrt. Von Strandhandtüchern, über Sonnenmilch, Mückensprays und verschiedenen Badartikeln bis hin zu Strandspielzeug und diversen Küchenutensilien.

Es war super sauber und opulent ausgestattet.

Das Haus liegt wirklich direkt am Strand. Mann läuft nur die Terrassen Treppe runter und berührt bereits mit den Füßen den weichen Sand.

Es ist sehr ruhig und die Nachbarn sind alle sehr nett und zuvorkommend.

Der Supermarkt Solomon´s ist nicht weit weg und für fleißige Spaziergänger sogar zu Fuß erreichbar.

Das Restaurant in der Marina ist sehr gut und nicht zu teuer. Für weitere Restaurants muss man etwas fahren, was für uns allerdings kein Problem war, da wir uns am Flughafen Mietwagen ausgeliehen haben.

Es war für uns ein sehr gelungener und erholsamer Aufenthalt in New Providence, dank der wundervollen Unterkunft.

Danke an Mike auch für den Präsentkorb und natürlich dafür, dass wir in dieser tollen Location unseren Urlaub genießen durften.

Vielen Dank!

Natalie
