Excellent property conveniently located to gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

This home was great for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids. We rented a golf cart, mostly because the kids were excited to drive it, but it wasn't necessary. It's a short walk to the beautiful Treasure Cay beach, restaurants, marina for excursions, grocery, bakery, liquor store. After landing we stopped in Marsh Harbour for groceries at Maxwell's, but we could have skipped that because i think the grocery in Treasure Cay was equivalent. Also before buying any condiments, coffee, etc, check the condo first. It was fully stocked when we arrived (at least 5 bottle of ketchup, a couple mustards, rice, coffee, mayo, soy sauce, cooking oil, dried spices, s&p, etc.) To say this condo was well stocked would be an understatement. It literally had it all--plush towels, sheets, sand toys, condiments, cookware, dishes, utensils, etc. There is a free laundry room and free filtered water (refundable key deposit required for both). Also free WIFI, but it did go out for hours at a time on several days, which also meant no TV as it is only Netflix. We were OK with that, though, since it was nice to be offline with toes in the sand. We also had a few short power outages that seemed unrelated to weather. Again, a minor inconvenience that didn't bother us much. The pool area and grounds were lovely and well kept. Our kids enjoyed that the pool had a deep end that was deep enough to dive into. The property manager was helpful and made a phone call for us, as our cell phones did not work there. The owners were helpful and responsive and answered questions quickly. They provided recommendations for boat excursions and a local taxi driver, who we did not use upon arrival because we rented a car for that leg, but who happened to drive by the unit while we were sitting outside and introduced himself, asked about us, and generally seemed to be keeping an eye on the condo for his friends. We did use him for our return trip to Marsh Harbour and he was reliable and friendly. Overall a very positive experience and we would recommend it.

Visit to Picture Perfect Paradise 7/23/17 through 7/30/17

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from Picture Perfect Paradise. It was a wonderful vacation/anniversary trip!!! The unit was clean and well furnished. We were very pleased with the friendliness of the staff as well. The owner was very helpful in providing a list of activities and suggestions for our stay. We rented a golf cart for the entire week and a car for two days. The only issue we had was the taxi driver Sidney Hart showing up an hour and a half early on the day we were to leave. We were eating breakfast and we had to rush to get our things packed. He also came the day before thinking it was the day we were leaving (even though I had written it down for him). Other than that, we had a wonderful time and I would recommend the condo to anyone. It was very close to the beach and places to eat.

Owner's Response: 🏝 Happy Anniversary! Treasure Cay is a perfect place to celebrate a anniversary! We are happy to hear you had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed staying in Mariners Cove at our condo Seaside Treasure. The taxi drivers do want to insure you get to the airport on time, flights are international and require you to arrive early. Sidney is great he likes to drop by the day prior to check in make sure he has the right flight and departure time. All of the staff are very friendly in Treasure Cay making a more memorable vacation. 🐠☀️🌴

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful condominium! The decor is fresh and fun and so welcoming and comfortable! Everything you might need is provided in the fully stocked kitchen - towels and linens are high quality, I enjoyed every bit of this charming (and clean) home! Mariners Cove is wonderful - steps to the marina, and gorgeous beach, and a very pretty heated pool perfect for playing or lap swimming. The owners are very helpful with any questions, and community is very friendly. Reading on the second floor balcony, surrounded by palm fronds was a highlight!

Family trip to Abaco

  • 4 of 5

This Condo was the perfect place for us to stay on our little family vacation. The condo which is built more townhouse style with the bedrooms and a bathroom being on the second floor and the kitchen/living room being on the ground level. Decorated very beachy and fun with mermaids and seashells all over. The fridge was well stocked with fresh cold water and all the condiments you need (don't buy any until you get there and see what you need) The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and pans/etc. The fridge had a really handy phone list for all of the Bahamas which we didn't need to use but I really thought was handy to have out. We bought some supplies that we didn't totally use up so we left them for others to enjoy, I think this is a great habit to adopt ( like all of the left behind condiments, we left some paper-towels and I think some sunscreen ) the next vacationers might find it handy and pay it forward leaving something else equally as handy behind....anyways I digress. What a gorgeous location. On the same street as the marina ( the master bedroom has a balcony with a fabulous view) and also within steps of the pool and laundry. It was really easy to get to our rented boat!

While in Treasure Cay we visited Coco Beach bar which had some really good fresh bar food ( seriously the cracked conch..or batter fried conch was delicious) also the view was perfect. Treasure cay beach is one of the best looking beaches ever and the water was so warm!

We also tried Spinnakers for some fresh Mahi Mahi on a bed of fresh pasta and marinara, it was hot and delicious and our server was so friendly!

Bahama beach club we tried as well for food and unfortunately it was stormy so we were forced to sit at the bar and at the end of the day they were out of some ingredients....but they were also very helpful and had a delicious goombay smash.

Back to our condo rental, if I ever get the chance to come back I would happily rent this place again. So easy to work with, helpful tips, make this a very easy place to recommend. I think the price, friendliness, access to the marina and the beach, restaurants and fantastic location make this a top top location

We like to hear that our guests are comfortable to use items in cupboards and fridge and in return leave things behind for others guest to use. I'm sure another guest will be happy to use the sunscreen you left behind thank you! We look forward to having you come back and stay for another little family vacation. Thanks for the great review!

TAKE ME BACK

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Treasure Cay. I traveled for my cousin's wedding at the Bahama Beach Club and reserved Jay and Cindy's condo for 6 nights. I was first blown away by how helpful Cindy was. I tend to be a little overbearing with questions: I ask A LOT. Cindy always responded promptly and politely and went above and beyond to be helpful. The condo itself was gorgeous, and extremely affordable. Well-decorated, spacious, and near everything. I stayed with a couple who were also attending the wedding, but the condo felt big enough to fit a family of 5. This week was unforgettable. I hope to go back and will definitely book at Jay and Cindy's place if I do. The beaches of Treasure Cay are unlike anything I have ever seen and the locals were all so friendly. I could go on and on about how beautiful my week was, but I'll leave you with this. If you are considering Abaco, do it...and stay at Jay and Cindy's.

Owner's Response: Definitely come back for your second trip! Yes we agree the locals are some of the friendliest people around, they always make you feel very welcome. The beaches in Treasure Cay are like no other, perfect scenery for a beach wedding. I actually saw photos of your cousins wedding on the beach, thru the posts on the Bahamas Beach Club's site, absolutely beautiful. We are thrilled to hear your week was unforgettable.. Once agin we both look forward to you coming back to stay! Cindy and Jay
