What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

Pack everyting in plastic storage boxes (lots of cockroaches here!!!) Think about your security. Criminality is high in Nassau. Choose a recent house. Think you may have lots of problems in a old house (plumbing, roof, etc...) Try to have a spare room or a cottage for your guests/visitors.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

Individual big house. Yes.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

The security was very important to us. We live in a gated community. Not too far from my husband's office, airport and school. Through a real estate agent.

Whether you need primary care or complex surgery, you'll have access to the best hospitals & doctors available.
