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.

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.

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.

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

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house and accomodations had a great layout, lots of old movies and books to read laying out in the sun by the ocean! It was a relaxing vacation with the family and easy to either lay low or explore the island. We did rent a car for a few days and also used the recommended driver- Joe. Joe was extremely dependable, prompt, and fair. We enjoyed visiting the waterpark at Atlantis one day, eating at the Fish Fry, snorkeling at the Clifton Heritage Center, and the Powerboat Adventure Tour.

Owner's Response: Loved that you guys had a fantastic time at the villa. The best thing about the villa is that you can just hang out and relax or take fabulous day trips to the other islands. The Bahamas is a special piece of nature. We are continuing to improve that property and hopefully you'll be back to enjoy Water's Edge soon. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Beautiful outdoor space - perfect for 2 family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families (4 adults, 4 children) stay at Water's Edge and it was the perfect size! The house is very spacious and has all that you need for a vacation. We were extremely impressed with the outdoor space - lots of room on the patio and beautiful water views. Our kids enjoyed snorkeling right off the back (be sure to have water shoes!), swimming in the pool, and collecting beach glass at the nearby beach area (just a short walk, not a large or pretty beach but the kids had fun). Mark was so responsive before leaving on the trip and answered my many questions and provided recommendations. The house has a great binder of information with recommendations on activities through out the island. We opted to not rent a car and utilized the services of Joe during the stay. Joe was great! We just needed to plan in advance our day and he was there to pick us up and take us. The villa is in a very residential area without any restaurants or stores nearby. There were times we wished we would have had a car so that we could spontaneously run to the store - just be mindful as it is truly away from things - which can also be nice, quiet and peaceful!

Owner's Response: Hi Guys - I am so happy to hear that you had a blast at the villa. We do try to keep all the facilities in top condition and have recently moved lots of the outdoor areas. I am glad that you enjoyed the ocean views - this was one of the main reasons we bought the house to live in. The sunrises at break of day are breathtaking. We hope to see you back to enjoy Water's Edge again soon! Regards, Mark & Lisa

Marvelous Villa, Marvelous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation in the sun - we would highly recommend Nassau and this villa in particular. All the amenities in the villa were as described and very clean and fully equipped. The outdoor space is delightful with sun loungers, hammock and pool to enjoy. There is also an outdoor, covered bar which is wonderful for hanging out and sipping cocktails. The owner, Mark, could not have been more helpful providing lots of information and answering questions promptly.

My family and friends felt completely at home at Water's Edge and had a very relaxing time. We also took Mark's recommendations and took a speed boat trip to the deserted Exuma Islands and also have a tremendous day out at Dolphin Encounters where they have a private beach to take it easy on.

We hope to be back again sometime and will certainly keep Water's Edge at the top of our list.

House was Great but would Never go back to Nassau

  • 4 of 5

Water's Edge is lovely. Comfortable beds and ample towels. The linens were a nice quality. Everything is laid out well. We appreciated staying in a 100 year old true Bahamian home. The house is very clean with the exception of the kitchen cabinetry which could use a scrub down...but nothing off-putting. The Master Bath was especially nice.

The outside area is a dream. Or at least it was on one day. The other days we had MASSIVE wind. We could barely open the doors. We could not leave the windows open or the waves would wash into the house. I am told this is unusual and surely the owners are not responsible for the weather, but I kicked myself for choosing the Bahamas in March.

During the several days of wind storms, we were challenged to entertain ourselves. The cable TV was not working. This was a problem with the service provider. There are baskets of DVD's but they are primarily children's movies or older releases. They would have been adequate had we not been trapped for so long by the wind.Additionally, the flat screened TV is small for the viewing space. It was difficult for the five of us to all see it well. Fortunately the internet was good. We enjoyed the games and books.

Because we couldn't get in the water at the house (even the pool had white caps!!!) we were forced to explore the island of Nassau thoroughly. I don't know if it is still recovering from the Hurricane, but every beach and neighborhood we explored was filled with tons of trash.

Sara, the property manager was instantly responsive when we had a minor problem. Joe was a wonderful resource. We rented his van and he also provided taxi service after a night at the casino.

On our last full day the weather was perfect and Water's Edge was a dream. The views, the water, the relaxation were amazing. We were sad to leave. We awoke the next morning and watched a stunning sunrise over still waters. But then.....the smoke rolled in. Toxic fumes from the giant burning dump fire poured into the property. There was a haze over the water and in the house. We could not escape the fumes and started to feel poorly. Fortunately, Joe arrived and whisked us to the airport. Again, this is not the owner's fault, but a quick google search reveals that the massive on-going dump fire is a problem that has literally been "re-igniting" for years on Nassau. I hope it cleared for the arrival of the next guests.

Owner's Response: Hi Guys - I am so glad that you were impressed and enjoyed the villa so much....but I am distressed that you saw Nassau in a lousy light. I see that the dump fire has been in the news lately and is causing problems throughout the island which is terrible - and I know that the intense Government pressure has now resolved this issue - too late for you unfortunately. Also you had rotten luck with the weather as we normally get very calm ocean off Water's Edge. I'm sorry about that - you'll have to come back again as being at the villa during the normally great weather is gorgeous. I promise to work on the wind next time ;-) But I am glad that you enjoyed the amenities in the villa and, hopefully, the huge DVD library helped out. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Trip of a lifetime - can't wait to go back!

  • 4 of 5

The property was amazing! Very spacious with all the amenities. Highlight of the villa was definitely the outdoor space! The only thing that would have made it more perfect would have been private beach access and better internet connections. The property manager was incredible and so helpful. Joe, our taxi service, was awesome too! Highly recommend this VRBO - had a wonderful time!

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.
