Have a unique experience at Water's Edge.... Come on down and enjoy our special oceanfront Villa and brand new private fresh water pool. (www.bahamasrentalwatersedge.com)

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

Water's Edge is a wonderful private villa with 130 feet of ocean front and all the modern amenities that ensure you will not miss 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 renewed and re-surfaced!

Open the back gate and step down in to 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 brand new master bathroom. The house include 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 bar (with sink) and drinks area - perfect for evening cocktails.

We can also offer catering (meals and chef services) and message services.

What makes Water's Edge the ultimate rental? We provide Cable TV, Boom Box, IPad/IPhone player, free WIFI broadband throughout the house and property for those visitors who may need to stay connected while in Paradise. A dinghy and snorkelling equipment are provided for your enjoyment. We also provide a phone that gives you the option of 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). Additional nights are priced at $600 per night.

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 USA.

(www.bahamasrentalwatersedge.com)

Mark Cabrelli purchased this house in 2007

Why Mark Cabrelli chose Nassau & Paradise Island

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 house 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 message services.

Really enjoyed the accommodation - the pool was salt water which was great for the kids and my mom, the snorkelling was excellent and there is two rocks that are full of fish. Loved how we had stingrays swimming in front of use as we sat and enjoyed the sun set. The house is beautiful and fully stocked, very very relaxing, worth the money for sure.

Owner's Response: Hi guys - so glad that you enjoyed the villa. I think you meant to say the pool is Fresh Water though. The rocks off the back of the house are new and have attracted several new and beautifully colored fish. The 2 stingrays have lived off our house for years - they are Ying and Yang. We hope that they are a couple and perhaps with bring some little ones at some point! I hope to see you back at Water's Edge for a restful vacation again some time in the future. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Very Happy With Our Choice!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our trip to Waters Edge. Overall I would recommend it highly for a small family or some friends looking for a getaway. I would certainly recommend it over simply staying in a hotel or resort room, especially if travelling with children as it forces you to explore the island a little more and get a better feel for the island and its people.

At the recommendation of the owner, we contacted Joe and used his services frequently. We even rented a van from him ! (immaculate and cheaper/more convenient than airport rentals). We traveled with my family including a 2.5 year old and a 6 mo old as well as my parents. All of the amenities were there as described and made the transition seamless. Driving on the opposite side of the road for me was a new experience but quickly learned and getting around the island is pretty easy.

Thus house itself was great. a few technical glitches were encountered but the property manager Sara was quickly responsive to any issue. We had a couple very windy days which made the back patio cooler and the water choppy, but my daughter loved the waves crashing into the break wall on those days! The others were picture perfect and on calm days swimming and snorkeling off the back were fantastic.

We spent one day at the water park at Atlantis and two days on Cabbage Beach. the directions provided in the house were great and the beach was almost empty!! absolutely pristine sand and surf so highly recommended.

Thanks to the Cabrellis for opening their home to us!

The perfect place to unwind and excape the normalcy...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and perfectly positioned for relaxation. It is far enough away from downtown, but close enough to get to if you want to. Unfortunately we had a wind storm most of the time we were there, but we did get in the water a couple of times, the rest of the time we spent relaxing, reading, playing games, catching up with each other and our friends. We celebrated my wife's birthday and coordinated with Sara to make a cake and subsequently asked her to make a dinner for four at the house. Both Sara and the food was amazing and would highly recommend it. Would definitely do this again and will recommend it to everyone I know.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you celebrated your wife's birthday in style at Water's Edge. It is very unusual for the wind to come in strongly as it did, but I am happy that you managed to get into the ocean and enjoy the pool. Next time you come back, the weather will be delightful I'm sure. Sara has recently joined our time although I have known her for many years. She is a great baker, chef and masseuse as well as our expert Property Manager. I'm glad she cooked for you and that you were able to sample her home made pasta! Check out the photos on FB: https://www.facebook.com/LuxuryVacationWatersEdge/ Please come back soon and enjoy Water's Edge again. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Photos Do Not Do It Justice

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed for a week at Water's Edge, and the experience was wonderful. Mark (the owner) kindly recommended a taxi (Joe) for us at the airport and immediately got a few groceries on our arrival. The villa itself was fully equipped, complete with everything you could ever need. We all especially enjoyed the outdoor patio which was fantastic for evening meals and cocktails, should you decide to cook a night or two, as the sounds of the ocean waves complemented every meal.

On the patio there is a quiet pool with lots of loungers and cushions (which you access inside) and the gorgeous ocean a few steps away. We could simply walk out to the ocean for our swims then clean of in the fresh water pool which was fantastic. There is a beach nearby if you prefer sand with your sun.

Cafes and restaurants are in town and there are loads to choose from in Nassau. The property manager, Jonquil, was a gem and she can make any recommendations for you - including day trips for snorkeling or diving.

Overall, Water's Edge was a fantastically relaxing place to vacation, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I know we will certainly be back!

Stunning, beautifully appointed home on the sea

  • 5 of 5

The Cabrellis have seen to every detail in this spacious and impeccably maintained vacation home. The soaring ceilings, multiple seating areas positioned to view the water, and the fun loft bedroom for the kids combined for a serene and luxurious experience. As another reviewer mentioned, the home is every more spectacular in person, and has all the amenities needed to enjoy everything the property has to offer. Simply put, Mark and Lisa have thought of everything. On top of that is the hospitality - visitors are graciously greeted and settled in by the house manager (Jonquil for our trip). Upon discovering that we ordered our grocery delivery for the wrong date, Jonquil kindly drove me to the nearest grocery and back. Joe, our driver, was phenomenal. Knowledgeable, highly responsive and punctual, he got us wherever we needed to go. We enjoyed many trips with exchanging riddles and brain puzzles with Joe to the great delight of our kids. Mark and Lisa also made sure we had Thanksgiving reservations at their favorite restaurant, and even worked their magic to halt some nearby construction noise. We will certainly return!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This house is clean, spacious and right on the water. We enjoyed all of the outdoor amenities. The beach next door is a quick walk or swim away. Totally private and sandy. We loved the outdoor kitchen, pool and hammock. We traveled with 5 adults and 2 children. One of the children was under 2 years old and we used the pack n play. We would recommend getting a bluetooth outdoor speaker. We should have brought ours from home. We ended up getting the speakers to the stereo close enough to hear while outside. We went to cabbage beach one day and it is really crowded while the cruise ships are in. After 4 pm we had the whole beach to ourselves. We ate at a lot of the local restaurants and went to the grocery store and cooked a lot of meals. Try Lowes for cheaper toiletries and household items. It is in the shopping center by Solomans market. We packed some items on our suit cases as well to save money. The house, pool, beach, outdoor living space and the VIEW are amazing! Highly recommend!

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.
