About the property

Pool, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, sleeps 8.

Experience the tranquility of Water's Edge.... Come on down and enjoy this oceanfront Villa with new private freshwater pool. (www.bahamasrentalwatersedge.com)

You'll love it - We are consistently rated the best place on the island at this price point - check out our hundreds of reviews to see.

Water's Edge is a wonderful private villa with 130 feet of oceanfront and all the modern amenities that ensure your home from home. This luxury private 2800 sq foot villa on the serene eastern end of Nassau is the perfect escape for your family. Enjoy lounging in a hammock on the huge back patio with panoramic views of Athol and Rose Island and cool down in our private, crystal clear, private fresh water pool with soothing fountain. The pool has just been re-surfaced!

Open the back gate and step down into the ocean for a swim, or row our dinghy out a few hundred feet to snorkel the many surrounding reefs. Or if the ocean is not for you then relax in our freshwater pool that overlooks the ocean. Spend evenings sipping Bahama Mamas seated at the outdoor wet bar and grill the fish you caught on our stone charcoal grill. We even have our own Margaritaville Navigator drinks maker.

Brew a cup of coffee in the recently renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Count the sailboats on the ocean from the expansive shower in the new master bathroom. The house includes 4 bedrooms, all with Queen Beds (one room is an attic room) and can sleep up to 8 people. All the beds have been recently renewed. All linens and towels included. There is a slightly sunken formal dining room overlooking the beautiful front patio with local flora and fauna and a relaxing sun-room overlooking the ocean with a cozy reading area and casual dining section.

Open the french doors leading to the back patio and a very large central living space enjoys the cooling eastern breezes throughout the year. Also outside is brick BBQ grill and covered wet bar and drinks area - perfect for evening cocktails.

What makes Water's Edge the ultimate rental? We provide Cable TV, Boom Box, IPad/IPhone player, free WIFI broadband throughout the property for those guests who may need to stay connected while in Paradise. A dinghy and snorkeling equipment are provided for your enjoyment. We also provide a phone for local calls to make reservations and inquiries at no charge. Enjoy the privacy of the 'non-tourist' area with easy access to exploring the rest of what Nassau has to offer. We also have optional daily housekeeping (additional costs apply), plus catering services if desired.

I can recommend Joe, our taxi driver, if all group transport requirements. Also, it is a short 10-12 minutes drive to the Atlantis Resort but we believe that once you set foot in Water's Edge, you won't feel the need to go anywhere else.

About Mark Cabrelli

Water's Edge is owned by the Cabrelli family. We enjoyed living in our beautiful home for 5 years before deciding to take our daughter on a traveling adventure. We now live in the Florida, USA.

Mark Cabrelli purchased this villa in 2007

Why Mark Cabrelli chose Eastern Road

After Mark worked in the Bahamas on a contract we fell in love with Nassau. We chose Water's Edge after an extensive search as we were looking for a traditional Bahamian home with modern amenities directly on the ocean with a private freshwater pool.

Nassau teems with Bahamian and British flavor. The capital of The Bahamas boasts miles of spectacular beaches and stretches of vivid coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. Dance to calypso music, savor fried crab or play dominos with locals in the diverse city. Don't leave without also learning about the country's interesting past. Shop, dine and sightsee, particularly along busy Bay Street, or if you're a James Bond fan, visit the many movie sites. The town retains many of its characteristic pastel-colored British colonial buildings, including pink-hued Government House. Visit during the famed Junkanoo Festival (Christmas and New Year, also once in the Summer) to experience a high-energy parade of spectacularly costumed dancers.

What makes this villa unique

We knew as soon we walked out of the back patio doors and saw that amazing view that Water's Edge was a unique and wonderful place. The private pool is a fabulous thing to be used throughout the year. We fell in love with the sunrises (something to behold), the Abaco pine beams in the cathedral ceilinged, living room, the hummingbirds that visit and the ocean breeze that cools the home throughout the year.

We can also offer catering (meals and chef services) and massage services. Plus, Joe, our taxi guy, can provide all group transport.

Notes:
Although the villa is not on any public transport route, we do recommend using our taxi guy, Joe. He is a great guy who we have working with for years. He is reliable, knowledgeable and, importantly, trustworthy. He can accommodate all guest (up to 8) in his minivan. He is available for airport pick-up and other trips throughout your stay. Language Bahamians speak English with a Bahamian twist. This can be difficult to understand at first if local people are speaking quickly but you will pick it up! Bahamians should have no trouble understanding you. Currency The Bahamian dollar is on par with the US dollar and both currencies can be used here. Bahamian dollars cannot be exchanged at foreign banks so try to use up or trade back any of your remaining Bahamian currency before you leave. Roads Bahamians drive on the left. Be sure to allow for this when crossing the road. Many streets do not have sidewalks and there is no designated side for walking on.

June 2018

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed here the first week of June 2018. The rooms were spacious and accommodating. There were 2 couples and 2 singles so the rooms worked perfectly. We gave my son the upstairs room with a half bath and the rest of us used the other 3 bedrooms. The master is beautiful with the view of the ocean from both the bedroom and bathroom. I wouldn't recommend the upstairs for elderly or very young, simply due to the stair case. The living room was very homey and the kitchen had enough of the basics to get us by. There are several movies and games inside the house in case you get bored outside, but I can't imagine that you will. The outside area was great also. We used the pool daily and the view is breath taking. We snorkeled right behind the house multiple times while we were here for the week. We were able to see leopard rays, crab, so many fish we couldn't count and even some nurse sharks. I have to admit the first time we saw the sharks there was some panic but after talking to all the locals and the captain of our fishing boat we were assured that if we didn't bother them they wouldn't bother us and they were right. We spent many more hours in the water taking pictures( a go pro is a must) right over the top of them and they just continued to sleep on the bottom of the ocean. This was probably the most memorable part of our trip. It was fantastic. I would definitely bring bug spray and a light jacket because the little bugs bite some(someone called them sand fleas) and the evening air off the ocean can be a little chilly late at night.

There is only one thing about staying here you should include in your planning. That is transportation to and from town if you plan to go do things other then at the house. Joe is the guy recommended. He is FABULOUS. He stopped at the grocery store on the way from the airport and made several other stops for us during the week while we were out and about. It was about $70 from the airport to the house and around $35 each way on the days we wanted to tour around. Although that is an expense you should plan for it is not a negative to staying here because the view and the snorkeling make it worth it.

Mark and Marsha(owner and manager) are great to work with. They have always responded very quickly and were happy to help with any questions or issues we had.

I would recommend this rental for anyone visiting the Bahamas that wants a beautiful view but not the chaos of a resort.

Amazing property with all the Amenities of home +

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay with all the Amenities.. We loved how open the whole property was, this location can host 4 couples easy. The outdoor area, pool, patio sets and bar is just as big as the house. The pictures do not do this property Justice.. Noting negative to say, we loved our stay and will definitely be returning. Our whole group enjoyed the house so much we relaxed pool side more then going out to see the sites. We also got some great snorkeling in too. If the funding & price was right we'd be putting an offer into mark to purchase. Maybe one day we could afford this Million dollar 4 bedroom water front house.

Relaxation Found at the Water's Edge

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing birthday experience this was. We had an amazing time, the views are just not describable. The home is well appointed and is very clean! There are many places to cozy up and enjoy the views. The hammock was my absolute favorite...what a way to start and end your day with that ocean and sun view as you rest your head.

I recommend Water's Edge to anyone that wants to be away from the hustle-n-bustle, yet accessible soon, and see the views and experience pure relaxation all day...and night long.

Thank you for sharing your home with us! We will be back :)

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best vacations! The home is beautiful and is truly a home away from home. There was plenty of space for our family. The kitchen provided all that we would need. We enjoyed dinners ion the back patio looking at the ocean. We played plenty of board and card games that we never find time to play at home. The ocean life was fun to watch which included the manta rays, sea turtle, dolphins, a reef shark, finding small lobsters and star fish while snorkeling along with a lot of fish and other things. If you have a water proof GoPro with an underwater filter, make sure you bring it. The videos turned out great! When we were planning this vacation, Mark emailed that although there were other things to see on the island we probably wouldn't venture out a lot since we had a pool and the ocean right there are our fingertips. He was right. We are a family that is usually on the go non stop so when the kids asked if they could just stay at the house and swim and relax I knew we had hit the jack pot. We did venture out to downtown for several hours on one day but we were glad to return back to our "home" for the week. We used Joe for our transportation and he is highly recommended. There were no pressures to figure out where to go and to worry about driving on the correct side of the road. The day we left, there was a lot of road construction so Joe was able to take us a different route to the airport. No worry for us and we got there without a hitch. Marsha the house mgr is very nice and welcoming. I had peace of mind knowing that if there was a problem we could call her for help. This is a place we would definitely like to return to for another vacation - so much so that we would have booked our spring break week for 2019 before leaving, but we don't know the dates yet for the school break. If you are looking for a wonderful get away, Water's Edge should be one of your top considerations!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the glowing review and we are so glad that you enjoyed the villa. I will also get back to the team with your thanks - they have been with me for years and that is important. I would love to see some of your photo shots from underwater as they sound spectacular. The water off the patio is so incredibly clear that you must have been able to see lots. We do book up spring break quite early but if you are interested please let me know when you have dates and I'll ensure you get the "returning guest" discount ;-) Come back soon. Regards, Mak & Lisa

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay when in the Bahamas! The pictures don’t do the place justice and the outdoor living area is fantastic. This is now the only place we’ll stay while in the Bahamas.

Thanks Mark and Marsha for a great vacation.

Water's Edge is situated on the quiet, residential eastern end of the island amongst many other private luxury properties and away from the major (noisy) tourist hubs. You will find many locals out for their morning walk in our area as it is a gorgeous view around the end of the island. It is a short 5 minute drive to downtown Nassau, local restaurants and Paradise Island and Atlantis. The ocean is just a walk down the back steps and you will find many reefs within rowing distance (with our dinghy) and beautiful snorkeling. There are also 2 beaches within swimming and walking distance from the house. The world famous Cabbage Beach (Paradise Island) is a 5-10 minute drive away. There is a local grocery store within walking distance as well.

A well-stocked activity and guidebook is provided in the house as well as maps of the local area. Please check out our customer reviews.

Nassau teems with Bahamian and British flavor. The capital of The Bahamas boasts miles of spectacular beaches and stretches of vivid coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. Dance to calypso music, savor fried crab or play dominos with locals in the diverse city. Don't leave without also learning about the country's interesting past.

The town retains many of its characteristic pastel-colored British colonial buildings, including pink-hued Government House.
