Guestbook comments from the owner

The view is what it's all about. Some days the water was like a pool and some days the water had small waves. The kitchen might want to be updated, but has everything we needed for cooking, and it was where we spent most of our time when we were in the house. Beds were comfortable, the house was clean and well-maintained, and it was a peaceful, relaxing setting. We had coffee and watched the sunrise on the patio. After breakfast we went to the beach. Pretty much most of the day was spent on the beach - except for breaks for sandwiches for lunch. There's a pergola on the patio to escape the sun, and get some shade.

What a great location. It was super relaxing. Just what the doctor ordered.

absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

my girlfriend and I flew my plane direct to marsh harbor and rented a car....It was an easy international hop...I suggest anyone in general aviation to take this plunge.....AND rent this house...It is fabulous...pictures are accurate but do not do it justice. The house is easy to get to, VERY well appointed with all the amenities. It is large enough for a family of 3, or one family with kids. The kitchen is well stocked with all the items you need. It is a very clean, comfortable home, and the a.c. works well, although the first 2 days/nights we only used the bedroom ac to cool and dehumidify (semi-tropical!}

The view is first class. It is absolutely beautiful, with the turquoise colors and water lapping up right to the shore. the bedroom has a large sliding glass door that looks over the sea of abaco....it is very romantic.

we cooked 2 nights, but brought in most our food from the u.s., as prices in the bahamas are very expensive. (everything shipped in). The local restaurants are good, but somewhat expensive compared to u.s. prices. after all, it is a vacation destination that is "out of the way". We had a very nice local lady cook for us one night....4 fresh lobster and all the sides, for 120$...well worth it. It just depends on what you wish to do and how much you wish to spend.

I suggest renting a boat/skiff for exploring the outer cays. we did thru treasure boat rental at treasure cay marina. check out the swimming pigs, green turtle cay, great guana cay, and all the hundreds of little private beaches and cays around the area. the water is some of the clearest i have seen in the world.

All in all, this was a fabulous vacation, easy travel, beautiful home, beautiful scenery. This home and vacation was everything we had hoped for. 5 stars, thumbs up! Thank you guys so much. we will be back!

Paradise!! The crystal clear water, our own private beach, and amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for beautiful water and privacy in a “non-resort” commercialized area, and boy did we get it!! The views from inside the house were amazing! It made even doing the dishes relaxing! Having your very own white sand beach with the most amazing water just outside your door is unlike anything I’ve experienced. We snorkeled, floated on rafts, the kids built sandcastles, we took beach naps, and listened to the sound of the waves without anyone else in our way. We rented a golf cart and explored Treasure Cay and that was fun too! The people, and the neighbors, were so friendly! We did an excursion 1 day to Pig Island, then to swim with turtles sharks and stingrays (something I thought I’d never do but absolutely loved), and Green Turtle Cay. It was an amazing experience! But every other day we chilled at the house....no need to go anywhere! My kids had a blast..as they are beach/water bugs! In all our vacations ever, my husband and I have never felt more relaxed and at peace than during our time here!! Words really can’t describe the breathtaking beauty of the area, or the experiences we were blessed to have!! My only wish...that there was more seafood available in the area. LOL! We are definitely hoping to rent here and come back again next year!! It was the best location and best vacation we have ever had!!! Thank you Leah!!!

Private, Beautiful and Wish We Were Back

  • 5 of 5

We needed a break - no hustle or bustle, no crowds, just peace.

It was my first experience with the home away concept, and my first trip to Treasure. I had questions about the property and the reply was prompt even providing an extra photo due to a special needs issue. Some other helpful suggestions and made us feel so welcomed, I felt like I was staying a a friends place.

When we arrived we were greeted by friendly folks that made sure we knew the wheres and hows around the house. Phone numbers were provided for any need and even a check in during the week since I had a question. The photos are exactly what you will find. The golf cart I rented was already in the garage when we arrived.

Our home for the week was divine! There were only two of us, but chose it for the location and so glad we did. Only once did we even see another person walking down the beach here. Privacy for "sunrise coffee and sunset wine," and especially the day lounging in the filtered sun of the lanai. There were beautiful views from almost every point - even in the house. I packed and then stopped for perishable groceries in MH, and found all the cookware etc. I needed in a the well equipped kitchen. I took my mask and snorkel and even enjoyed some light underwater right out the back door. After a swim, the outside shower was plus. I took a book, but the view, shore and breeze just lulled me into relaxation.

When we chose to tiptoe into civilization, it was only a few minutes golf cart ride into town. Friendly smiles greeted us, and the market was fairly well stocked.Most wonderful about TC is the LACK of the tourist trap ambiance. I was surprised conch salad is not more readily available. :{ Our most exceptional meal out was dinner at Charlie Brown's(Tell him we said hi).

When we work, we work long hours - but when we rest, this is the kind of place to do it. Until we can return....the photos mind will make us smile.

Owner's Response: Wonderful!! You filled my heart with your review! That's exactly the kind of guest we are aiming for, because that's what it's all about! I know you had a somewhat long journey to get there, and it was several plane rides, so I'm delighted to hear that you had such a peaceful and relaxing time. Come back anytime Felicia; and now you know more what to expect! Thank you, Likewise with you as guests ( I had already submitted my review of you before reading yours! Lol) Best wishes~Leah

Heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

A total of 6 of us stayed here in June 2018. There was more than enough room for all of us to have our own space. The beach in the backyard is absolutely stunning. We rented a golf cart, and drove around and looked at the other beach areas too but really nothing was better than our own backyard beach! It was so private we saw 2 people walk by the whole time we were there!! It really is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. The only problem we had is we didn’t get any cell phone service outside the US. My husband has a WiFi calling option, but the WiFi would cut in and out. We also didn’t know any restaurants or scuba dive places, or their locations. I did try google but the WiFi wasn’t so great. The locals are helpful and friendly which I liked. Oh and the cinnamon buns are awesome!!
