Treasure Cay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Den Hide-A-Bed Sofa, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

It's ALL TROPICAL, is a year-round Abaco Bahamas vacation rental home conveniently located in the quaint community settlement of Treasure Cay just off the Treasure Cay Beach located in Abaco, Bahamas. There are no traffic lights on this ''out island'' paradise & you'll find a combination of traffic (what little there is) predominantly by pedestrian, bikes and golf carts.

This vacation rental house is centrally located to the famous Treasure Cay Beach, Spinnaker marina restaurant, Coco Beach Bar & grill (just a 3-4 minute walk down the beach to the right) , full service marina, Tipsy Seagull marina bar, marina gift shop, liquor store, grocery store, bakery, post office, RBC bank, hardware store, taxi stand, dive shop, boat rentals, golf cart rentals, car rentals, scooter rentals and bike rentals. All of these facilities are within very easy walking distance - day or night. There is also Great Abaco Island's only Golf Course less than a mile away - a Dick Wilson design. You'll pass it (on the right) just before driving into Treasure Cay.

Be sure to see the 'areal view' in the pictures to get a good idea of where the villa is in relation to the remainder of Treasre Cay. ''It's All Tropical'' is a single-level free-standing villa nestled within a small, quiet community of similar villas, all connected via lighted sidewalks just wide enough for a golf cart. You'll enjoy walking around the area to see how different each villa is decorated. There are two separate patios all surrounded by lush vegetation including coconut trees and several banana trees (if you're lucky, you just might have your own bananas when you stay.) There are no roads to cross to get to the beach so the children can walk safely and easily between the Treasure Cay Beach/pool and the villa.

Each bedroom in this quaint vacation villa has a queen bed and a private full bathroom (tub/shower), closet space and dresser with mirror.

The entire vacation rental villa has porcelain tile flooring for your convenience and health, and is textured to provide traction even when wet. Additional sleeping can be accommodated on the den hide-a-bed sofa.

We enjoy the services of a local caretaker (Donna) who also works each day in the villa area in case you have any additional needs. The Washer and Dryer facility contains several washers/dryers and is located at the office building about a two minute walk from the villa. They are available M-F during the day and Saturday until noon. During normal office hours, filtered (Reverse Osmosis) water is also available for 50 cents (refill gallon jugs located in the villa). Just take the jugs and your money over to the laundry facility and place them on the table - come back later and they'll be filled for you. If you come back after hours, they'll usually be placed just outside the door for your convenience.

There are numerous local annual events including billfish tournaments, Junkanoo, Barefoot Man Concerts (Great Guana Cay - early March and late July), Island Roots Heritage Festival (Green Turtle Cay - usually the first weekend in May), Power Boat Races late July at the Treasure Cay ferry dock to Green Turtle and the Cheeseburger Party and Abaco Regatta time are also July - just to name a very few! LOBSTER Season starts August 1st.

Whether you want to spend the entire time alone with your family or get out and do something every day with others who have similar interests - you can do it all . . . by the way, doing 'nothing' does count as an activity in the Abacos! Remember, everyone is on ''island time'', including YOU!

The beach area for the villa community has its own collection of chaise lounge chairs.

Residing in South Carolina, our family has been vacationing in Treasure Cay, Abaco, Bahamas since April, 1989. We visit several times a year and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to be friends with local Bahamians who operate so many of the local establishments or offer all kinds of services. On our first visit, we immediately fell in love with the people & Treasure Cay Beach which is about a 3 mile cresent shaped beach with protected gin-clear water.

Owner purchased this villa in 2007

We initially purchased this villa for our personal use, but with a few friends asking if we'd consider offering it as a vacation rental house property, we decided to make it available for rental. It seems ideal for a very affordable getaway for 1 or 2 couples or small family.

Treasure Cay has been our first choice for several logistical reasons including the fact that the airport is just 10 minutes away, there is a local medical clinic within a two minute walk from our villa,a local EMS team, local stores open daily, a 3 1/2 mile crescent-shaped white sand Treasure Cay Beach with gin-clear water . . . well, you get the picture.

FABULOUS ISLAND AND AWESOME BEACH

  • 3 of 5
Can't say enough for all of Giles help. All questions answered, even arranged pick up to and from the airport and villa. I'm not going to talk about the island or the locals who you see every day cause this is one of the best kept secrets for a beach vacation.
I gave the villa a 3 star and here are my reasons, the villa needs to be de cluttered, whole villa needs repainted. No garbage disposal or dishwasher in kitchen. He had some landscaping lights and some
lights on the trunks of the palm trees but they weren't working, add a flat screen TV to either bedroom.
The positive things, the tile throughout entire villa and bathrooms, kitchen had everything needed from baking to cooking, barbecue grill a big plus, the location of villa and it being on the corner of the side walks, the landscaping and how the palm trees were situated on the property.

Overall, the villa needs a little upkeep on the inside and few things replaced and added.
We will be returning each and every year for our family vacation.

I THOUGHT SHE HAD THE KEYS, SHE THOUGHT I HAD THEM

  • 4 of 5
We visited Treasure Cay through 4/12. The place is stunning. One of the most beautiful beaches you will ever lay eyes on. Our visit was exceptional, but marred by the last night when things went awry. First let me say "It's All Tropical" is owned by two of the nicest folks we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Giles (the owner) couldn't have been more helpful advising us of places to purchase supplies, sites to see, things to do, and the villa was clean and "as advertised". However on our last night on the island my wife and I visited the Tipsy (Tipsy Seagull bar) for their pizza night. The pizza was very good by the way...but when we went to leave some other tipsy tourist (most likely) took the wrong cart leaving us on foot. Seems the key for the cart not only worked ours but many of the others as well. (FYI Cash's Carts didn't charge us 4 that day!)
I made a police report and never located the vehicle again. To make matters worse, when we got back to the villa after a day filled with sun, surf and alcohol, I couldn't find the door key. I asked my wife, "Didn't you have it"? She replied "No, I thought you did"! Uh oh. I went in search of Donna, the caretaker & couldn't find her. I had to enlist the assistance of a neighbor to call her for me. She reported that Donna was at choir practice at her church and she didn't know when she'd be returning. When I returned to the villa my wife was exhausted, as was I from a rather tumultuous day and all we wanted to do was relax on the couch in the villa. All the windows were closed. So, yes, I broke the front door. Immediately on entering I called Giles at home and fessed up to what I had done. I suppose we could have gone back to the Tipsy & await Donna, but that was the last thing we wanted to do. So I offered to pay for my damage. Much to my surprise and delight, Giles never spoke a cross word. He said he knew of a gentleman who he would contact to repair the door, and he went on to ask me how we were enjoying our stay on the island! I can't say enough about Giles and Mary Ann Huggins, the co-owners of Its All Tropical. Even with the problems encountered on our last day, they made our stay memorable and more than that, they made our faith in the kindness of others indelible. I highly recommend It's All Topical and Treasure Cay. Oh, one more thing: I don't know if you will be as lucky as we were, but venture over to the marina in the morning and perhaps you will see the dolphins at play like we did!

PERFECT RELAXATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kiddos age 7, had an amazing time at your place. The access to pool and beach were perfect. All the comforts of home only steps away from the comfortable pool and incredible white sand beach. The sand was like sugar and we made sand castles, sand animals and sand towns for hours. We hope to return again to the beautiful setting, comfortable accomodations and friendly locals soon. Thanks!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
"It's All Tropical" is exactly as the owner shows in the pictures, the location is accurate, easy to find and very close of the attraction and restaurant areas. The property was clean and well-maintained, the surrounding is very nice, during our stay there the weather was wonderful and the beach...TERRIFIC. The owner always answer all our requests and his advices were very useful, we really appreciate his cooperation and we have already recommended to our friends to visit this quiet and wonderful place...we hope to come back again shortly.

WEEKEND IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to the Abacos, and it was wonderful! While we would have enjoyed ourselves at another property, the ameneties here made this vacation special. From the proximity to the beach and pool to the owner's extrodinary assistance in arranging transportation, golf cart, and tips for shopping and dining, nothing couldn't have been any better. We will definitely be staying here again on future trips. Thank you for the wonderful accomodations!

Owner's Response: Treasure Cay in The Abacos does have a certain charm that somehow subliminally persuades folks to return soon . . . so much so that we have been returning every year since 1989 ourselves. Clearly one of the most significant attractions to the area is the Treasure Cay Beach which has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. While stretching out in the shape of a nearly 4 mile smile, the welcomed absence of numerous high rise condos naturally equate to a beach that on a busy day might see 40-50 people total. As you all probably experienced, our villa is just a few steps away from the beach. And, with one of the ways to the beach being by way of the swimming pool, you have the fresh water shower and bathroom available for you at the swimming pool as needed. We appreciate your kind words about our villa and our service to you all - after all it's your vacation and you deserve to be provided with the best possible service before and during your stay.

2 COUPLES - MAY 14TH THRU 20TH

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay at Its All Tropical. The location to the ocean and the pool is so convenient. The golf cart was useful for going to some of the restaurants and exploring the island. Everything was just as Giles had advised right down to the large beach towels and floats. There was hardly anyone in the complex so we pretty much had the pool and beach to ourselves. We brought food for breakfast and supper but had lunch at Coco's each day which was just a short walk down the beach. She shared the villa with my wife's sister & her husband. They're from Buffalo so this was a true vacation for them. I had brought along bug repellent and we never even used it. We did chickens and hot dogs on the grill that is at the villa. Carried powdered drinks as both beer and soft drinks are quite expensive on the island. The beds were most comfortable, air condition kept us cool and we never ran out of hot water for showering. The location to shopping, harbor, as well as the ocean make this an excellent choice for couples wanting to get away. Now that we know our way around and what to carry, we plan on returning again soon. Next time we'll hire a boat and captain for snorkling and swimming on the islands that are close by. Giles can walk you through all the ins and outs for island vacations. We couldn't be more pleased. Al, Sue, Joe & Kathy

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a grand time and we appreciate you adding to the "flotsam jetsom" garden! We think you make some great points about your stay that are reflective of the fact that we have a full time caretaker who does a super job of making sure everything is working properly and available if you need her assistance. We enjoy going several times a year to check on the villa . . . and of course enjoy lunch at the Coco Bar, Pizza Nights at the Tipsy Seagul bar at the marina and walking on the 3+ mile smile-shaped Treasure Cay Beach. We noticed you never mentioned the flat screen tv and satellite so we'll have to guess you never had time for tv!
