About the neighbourhood
This apartment was built and tastefully furnished in 2015, and is in the detached guest wing of a private home, Halcyon, on an old Bahamian estate.

It is a 6-minute walk to George Town, the capital of the island, with its shops, local straw market, restaurants, boat rentals and water taxi to the outlying islands. An equally short walk in the opposite direction takes you to an area known as the 'Fish Fry', a group of quaint local 'shack' restaurants built on the seashore and waiting to serve you tasty Bahamian cuisine.
