About the property

We welcome you to our new 1500 square foot home, located just 300 feet from one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.

Treasure Cay's beach is 3.5 miles long with powdery white sand and warm turquoise blue water. It is only a 5 minute walk from our home. The 18 hole golf course is right around the corner. A morning of golf, a swim in the pool at the marina and lunch at the Coco Bar would be a perfect way to start your vacation.

There are so many things to do while in Treasure Cay. Boat rentals are available for both experienced and novice boaters. Treasure Cay has a 150 slip marina with your choice of charter fishing boats also. The Abaco Islands are protected by the open ocean by a string of cays with the opportunity to go snorkling,scuba diving, shelling, swimming, or just a quiet walk on many different private beaches. After a morning of snorkling and shelling you may want to go to one of many restaurants offered on most islands and have their 'specialty' drink and possibly some conch fritters and lobster quesadillas. There are so many places to explore.

Please email or call us for affordable airline flights directly into Treasure Cay International Airport. (which is a ten minute taxi ride to our front door)

Come experience Treasure Cay.

About Andrew Cancelmo

Andy and Sue Cancelmo are the owners of 'Casa Tortuga' on Treasure Cay, Abacos. We have been vacationing in Treasure Cay for over 20 years. Our dream was to have a vacation home on the Island and we finally finished building our home in the summer of 2008. We live in Jupiter, Florida, so we are able to bring our boat over to the Islands in the summer with our family and friends. Treasure Cay is so beautiful...the beaches are amazing. Treasure Cay is close to many other Islands so we really enjoy fishing, snorkeling, shelling, etc. We caught our first Blue Marlin off of Treasure Cay. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do......

Andrew Cancelmo purchased this house in 2008

Why Andrew Cancelmo chose North Abaco

We decided to build our home in Treasure Cay because we loved the beautiful beaches, the friendly people, the ability to bring our boat from Florida. There are so many other Islands close by where we fish, snorkel and explore. We bring our daughter and usually a few of her friends. We both have very large families and they are able to come stay with us. Sue's favorite part is bringing our dogs and walking them on the beach everyday. We had vacationed here every summer for over 20 years and just fell in love with the Island. You will also!!!

What makes this house unique

The most unique quality of Treasure Cay is the beautiful 3 mile beach. When you step on to the sand for the first time you will be amazed at how soft and white the sand is. Its so relaxing just sunning on the beach reading a book or just looking at the view of the surrounding Islands. The crystal blue water is typically very calm and clear. The Golf Course is just around the corner from our house. The Marina has a pool and a restaurant/bar and is really beautiful. We made sure our home is very relaxing with nice comfy furniture and soft sheets and towels. We have a really nice 50' deck in the front for watching the sunset and having a cool tropical drink.

Great experience at Casa Tortuga

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I had a great time staying in this house. It was located close to the beach, the bars, the restaurants, and the marina. Just a 5 min golf cart ride away from anywhere you need to go. You can even see the ocean from the deck. We were very thankful that we choose Casa Tortuga and would definitely recommend it!

BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six fit extremely comfortable in Casa Tortuga! The house makes you feel right at home and Sue and Andy were just a text away from anything that was needed or asked! They were so extremely helpful and we felt like we were best friends with their family just by talking on the phone! (so rare on air bnb!)The house is bright and airy and sooo much bigger than it looks online! They have the sweetest neighborhood dogs that accompanied us to the beach everyday and I fell completely in love with them. The house is stocked with top tier amenities and everything you need while you are on vacation and the rooms and beds are cozy and comfortable. It is steps from the beach and in the perfect location for everything you would want to do on the island. I would recommend this place 110%! If you would like to take a look at our vacation, check out the blog here: http://www.britneyegner.com/home/2017/8/16/the-ultimate-guide-around-the-abaco-islands :) Thanks Sue and Andy!

Dream come true

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to take a special trip after our son graduated from High School so we decided on the Bahamas. Casa Tartuga was awesome! The owners were incredibly helpful offering tips for planning the trip as well as suggesting fun things to do and places to go we got there. When we arrived our driver was waiting for us at the airport, the golf cart was at the house charged and ready to roll, beach chairs on the porch our vacation began immediatly. The house is beautifully and tastefully stocked with everything we needed from comfortable beds and furniture to beach towels and chairs, cookware and bar ware, nice appliances and much more. It has all of the comforts of home. Treasure Cay has the most beautiful beaches and the clearest water I have ever seen and it's all right there in the front yard of Casa Tartuga! With just a short and very safe golf cart ride and you are right in town where you can get groceries, hit the bakery, enjoy happy hour, and delicious fresh fish, rent a boat, enjoy stand up paddle boards, swim in the ocean or the pool and hang out at the local spots. It was a dream come true! We loved it thanks to Casa Tartuga and Sue and Andy.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First off, throughout the booking and planning process Sue was extremely helpful and genuinely committed to making our vacation special! My family has traveled and cruised throughout the Caribbean and seen some amazing places, but we immediately fell in love with Treasure Cay. We are already thinking about our next trip back where in the past we have never visited the same place twice. In fact, we extended our trip while there as we not done exploring. Treasure Cay is a laid back, family friendly environment that offers an array of things to do from fishing, to boating/ island hopping, beach combing, shelling etc… The pictures online do not do justice for Sue and Andy’s home. The home was extremely clean with a nice layout, the AC was perfect and the beds were comfortable. It is in a quiet neighborhood across the road from the beach, and offers all the amenities one would ever need on vacation or back home. A golf cart is a must and offers a unique experience that beats getting into a hot rental car to travel just about anywhere you would ever need to go.

Homeowner is Very Helpful

  • 5 of 5

Even those this beautiful house was booked during the days I wanted to visit, the owner of this house personally contacted me directly and provided so much travel information for Treasure Cay and the surrounding areas. She saved me a lot of time and phone calls around the islands to try and find this type of stuff out. Thanks again!

Off the beaten path

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed staying at Casa Tortuga.

Property description says the house is located 300 from the beach which is true but in order to access the beach you must travel to the end of the street and you can't see the beach from the house due to the house across the street.

That said we did enjoy our stay and will be back to visit Treasure.

Owner's Response: Dear Mark, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am sad to hear that you were not satisfied as that is my ultimate goal for all of our guests. I have always been honest with all of our guests that we do in fact have a small view of the ocean and islands from our front porch and that we are not directly on the beach. There is more than one access on our street to the beach and many other beautiful beaches within 5 minutes of our home. I apologize for not making this clear with you. I promise to do so with any future guests. Thank you again for your input and I am at least happy that you will be returning to Treasure Cay again. Sincerely, Sue
