About the property

Exclusive villa with 2 Bed, 2 Bath, 2 Private Treetop Bungalows (hanging bed).

A private island all to yourself.

This exclusive private Villa is located on beautiful Rose Island in the Bahamas (as seen on HGTV's "Building the Bahamas"). Located just 20 minutes by speedboat, this is the closest you will get to an 'out island' experience while still having the convenience and accessibility to the mainland. THIS is the getaway you are looking for - some unique features about this private villa:

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, with exotic outdoor showers and rain water shower heads

Spacious living room with sleeper sofa, glass sliders, covered and uncovered decks with ocean and beach vistas


2 private tree-top bungalows

10 acres of lush foliage, private beach

Access to our scheduled day excursion amenities, such as snorkel gear, kayaks, tubes, gift shop, buffet lunch and beach bar (available Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun).

High speed wifi.

Get away from the hustle and bustle of Nassau and Paradise Island and get a true taste of the Bahamas. Come meet our friendly resident peacocks and explore the coves and trails of the sweet, lush landscape. Life doesn't get much better then this..


Includes round trip boat transportation from the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal (a perfect mini vacation while on vacation from the busy mega resorts). ***Latest departure is 4:00pm for travel to Rose Island, so if your flight isn't arriving until after then please make arrangements to spend one not in Nassau/Paradise Island and we will schedule you the next morning to the Retreat.

You will bring your food and meals with you by either shopping yourself or we are happy to recommend a provisioning service to do that all for you! Lunch is included on the cross over excursion days and the Sandy Toes Beach bar is fully stocked with drinks available for purchase.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Just steps from the beach, very private, and the people that run the place couldn’t be nicer or more accommodating. This is a unique and memorable experience. We are so glad we found this place! ❤️❤️❤️

Will be back in a Heartbeat!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family was looking for a truly unique experience this time on our Bahamas vacation and the Villa at Sandy Toes did not disappoint! The most amazing, beautiful location I had ever seen and the brightest blues in the Caribbean (and we have traveled a lot!)! It was so nice to have the Sandy Toes amenities right at our doorstep and the staff really went above and beyond (we did an amazing snorkel tour)! Forget the big hotels and go here - this is where it's at!! See you again soon!!

Nassau, Bahamas

Mid-Week Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I went away for a mid-week getaway with another couple. The experience was beyond excellent from the moment we stepped foot onto the boat.

Upon arrival, CJ and Captain Andy had all of our luggage and groceries, that we conveniently ordered FoodStore2Go.com, setup in the villa while we relaxed on the beach.

The villa is tastefully decorated with gorgeous views and has every amenity that anyone could ever want on a private island, and then some!

We would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a relaxing getaway that is conveniently located close to Nassau.

This is a MUST for anyone!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to the Retreat for our anniversary and I must say that this is hands down, bar none, the most beautiful place in the world. It was absolute serenity and we really had the resort amenities with the off the grid, low key "all by yourself" vacation rental factor - very oxymoronic. It was honestly the best of both worlds! The villa is situated on amazing Rose island and we got treated like royalty from the staff at Sandy Toes during the day, and then in the morning and night it was just the whispers of the waves and island life at it's finest.

We WILL be back and urge everyone to check this place out!!! Thank you and see you soon!
