About the property

Pool, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, sleeps 8.

Experience the uniqueness of Water's Edge.... Come on down and enjoy this 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 - check out our hundreds of reviews to see.

Water's Edge is a wonderful private villa with 130 feet of ocean front 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 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 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 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 snorkelling 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 and message services if desired. Additional nights are priced at $600 per night.

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.

(www.bahamasrentalwatersedge.com)

Mark Cabrelli purchased this villa 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 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 message services. Plus, Joe, our taxi guy, can provide all group transport.

Immaculately maintained. Amazing amenities. Friendly service and an outstanding location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. One of the best vacations we have had as a family. Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, this house gave us exactly what we needed to unplug, connect with each other, reflect on our experiences and have loads of fun. The view from the patio is unparalleled.

Owner's Response: Thanks guys for the brill review! We are so glad that you found everything in the villa as it should be. The view over the ocean is spectacular - it is actually what made us fall in love with the villa and Nassau when we bought the house. I know that you had the chance to get up early and see the fantastic sunrise in the morning. We are always here - please come back and visit again sometime. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Bliss in the Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for a week at the Water's Edge in Nassau, Bahamas. We were a party of seven adults and one child and the villa very comfortably accommodated us. The owner and his staff were very well organized and responsive to pre-arrival questions and orientation to the villa on arrival. And Joe, the driver recommended by the owner, was an absolute gem of a guy who was always precisely on time, patient enough to wait while we did our grocery shopping, and offered great ideas for things to see and do. The bedrooms in the Villa were comfortable and well-outfitted, the kitchen well-stocked with everything you might need for meal preparation, and the living areas pleasant and spacious. A huge plus was the excellent air conditioning which was so delightful on those warm, tropical days. But as nice as the interior of the villa was, it was the outside that deserves the raves. The back deck offers absolutely stunning views of the water and distant islands, breathtaking thunderstorms and gorgeous sunrises. The pool is clear, clean and refreshing, and equipped with multiple rafts and inner tubes for lazy floating. Snorkeling and swimming are a few steps away, and the unbelievably clear ocean water was a beautiful 85 degrees. Our group did do the obligatory day trips to Atlantis, downtown Nassau, etc., but we always found ourselves longing to be back at the Water's Edge and that spectacular ocean view whenever we were out. This truly is a magical place to spend a week with family and friends.

Owner's Response: Great to hear, you guys! And I know that the A/C in every room is a God send. So glad that you managed to get out to see some of the other attractions of the island - it really is beautiful. But I understand that you want to get back to Water's Edge; many of our guests say the same thing. Come back soon. Regards, Mark & Lisa

great location, clean, good snorkeling

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean. Beds were very comfortable. House was big enough for 4 adults and 4 kids. Kitchen had what we needed. The house is away from the busy area of town but easily drivable to downtown and to atlantis and the beaches. Our flight got in very late due to a flight cancellation and the owner was quick to get involved and make arrangements to get us into the house after dark. And at the last minute Joe was very helpful in renting us a van for a reasonable price the next day. The snorkeling behind the house was very good. The fish were not all big but we saw many different kinds and colors just walking out the back and following the coral wall to the little beach. We saw stingrays and a turtle on the last day. Overall the kids had a blast.

Owner's Response: So glad that you "had a blast." We try to ensure that all is place for our guests - and have made several improvements this year. The stingray couple are "residents" outside the villa; they have been coming for years. We hope that you can make it back to paradise again int he future. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed Water's Edge. We try to maintain the villa at the highest level - then, of course, nature takes over. The ocean, the reef, the sun, the breeze, the patio.........and, naturally, the "breathtaking view." We hope to see you guys back at the villa again sometime in the future. Regards, Mark & Lisa

What Vacation is Supposed to be!

  • 5 of 5

Mark thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your home and enjoy such an amazing experience! You really did have everything down to the last detail which allowed us to relax even more than we had hoped. Marsha greeted us and familiarized us with the house. (She also helped us get a few things throughout our stay so we wouldn't need to leave.) Joe was also great every time we called and needed a ride somewhere! I have stayed at many HomeAway locations and this was one of the best for sure. The house came fully stocked with more than everything we needed for cooking and cleaning. Plenty of silverware, pots and pans, and even spices! It was clean with plenty of bath towels and linens. We had a few friends in town, so we invited them over and they enjoyed it so much they decided to stay with us for a night! The pool and back patio really make this gem exceptional. We boated in the dingy, fished, swam, drank, barbecued and really enjoyed the property as if it were our own. The grocery store wasn't that far away and we even saw a Dairy Queen and Marcos Pizza not far from he house! We will be back for sure and we certainly have already recommended it to several of our friends. Thank you again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and I'm so glad that you enjoyed the villa. We try very hard to keep the standards for the house as high as possible. The ocean, islands and sun takes care of itself....but we have the responsibility to keep the villa to the same high level ;-) I hope you will be able to come back and enjoy Nassau and The Bahamas again in the future. Regards, Mark & Lisa

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.
