Bahamas Beachfront Private Villa on Beautiful Rose Island - As seen on HGTV!

Bedrooms 2
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

Amazing private getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the villa on Rose Island for a few days with my girlfriend and it was an amazing experience. The staff are super friendly, helpful and accommodating, the villa itself is great, very cozy, clean, but modern and has virtually everything you could ask for. Wifi is decent enough for what you need, also has a TV and speakers for movies and music at night. For most of the time you have the entire island to yourself, they run day trips most days, but once those people leave and before they get there, it's just you and the island. The water is pristine and crystal clear, good snorkeling to be done. You can borrow snorkeling gear, as well as sea kayaks. They also have some pigs on the island which is a nice added bonus if you don't want to go all the way to the Exumas for an island pig experience. The pictures don't even do the place justice, if you want a different Bahamian experience other than Atlantis, do yourself a favor and book this place, you won’t be disappointed.

True Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The pictures capture this beautiful beach and water of this gem. The cottage is clean and comfortable and perfect for two couples or a family. The beach is almost deserted when the mid day tour people are gone - you literally have this island to yourselves. The water is pristine for swimming and snorkeling. There is not a ton of fish, but we did see turtles, rays and an eel and the water is crystal clear. Brining food to the cottage was not a big deal and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Good wifi, tv and stereo set up. Nice outdoor table for dining. The upper view deck was beyond perfect for happy hour sunset relaxation - it is quiet and extremely private - no one is there in the mornings and evenings. The people that take day tours to the island aren't a bother - they are on the far side of the beach, but never come up to the cottage. I highly recommend this rental - we all loved it - especially because it is so easy to access from Nassau - it was great to get away from Nassau to this tranquil spot. The only drawback was the 'no see um' bugs that came out at sunset - but the house has bug spray.

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!!
