WATER'S EDGE - PERSONAL PRIVATE POOL & LUXURY OCEANFRONT. MAKE YOUR 2014 SPECIAL

Nassau & Paradise Island House Rental Photos and Description

Pool, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, sleeps 8. See http://bahamasrentalwatersedge.com

Have a unique 2014 at Water's Edge - ONLY A FEW SUMMER WEEKS LEFT (August & September)....Come on down and enjoy our special house and private pool. Also the CHRISTMAS week is still available.

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. See http://bahamasrentalwatersedge.com

This luxury private 2600 sq foot home 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. 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.

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 - 3 with Queen Beds and one attic room with a double bed and can sleep up to 8 people. 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.

What makes Water's Edge the ultimate rental? We provide Cable TV, free WIFI broadband throughout the house and property for those visitors who may need to stay connected while in Paradise. A dinghy (with oars) 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). See housekeeping details: http://bahamasrentalwatersedge.com

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.

Mark Cabrelli purchased this house in 2007

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..

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.

My sisters and I along with our husbands had a wonderful vacation at Water's Edge in Nassau, Bahamas. While the home looked to have everything we wanted on the internet from the moment we arrived it exceeded everything we had hoped for. The house is absolutely beautiful, comfortable and very well equipped. A home with great energy that made us feel very much at home away from home with the best view ever. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, sitting on the patio with the constant breeze…some of us snorkeled and took the dinghy to the offshore reef. Only fifteen minutes away, the Super Value on Prince Charles Drive made grocery shopping easy . Marco's delicious pizza comes in handy if you're feeling lazy after a day on the beach. I'd highly recommend Water's Edge to any of my friends or family looking for a Bahamian vacation. Booking was easy and efficient. We hope to return sometime soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks Marlene. we are so glad that you enjoyed the house. We do try to keep the standard of the house as high as possible. But the view over the ocean and the sunrises in the morning are something that makes the stay really special. We hope to see you guys down here in Nassau again.

Delightful stay at Waters Edge

The house was excellent. Thank you so much.

Everything was as billed online - and even better. We were very spoiled and really really enjoyed our holiday. In fact, besides a run to the grocery store and a mosey down to the local beach for a swim, several of us never left the premises the entire week until dinner on the last night! :-) (For this we found the amazing Café Matisse - what a treat!)

Loved the plethora of snorkelling gear, really appreciated the water shoes being there in so many sizes - you should add this to the "provided" list with snorkelling gear as several of us bought our own not knowing there were a dozen pairs in various sizes there. We tried the dinghy, but was tough to manoeuvre given the current, so we instead enjoyed swimming and snorkelling most every day.

in addition to significant sunbathing by the pool, we really appreciated the outdoor furniture as we ate most of our lunches and afternoon snacks outside - wonderful. The hammock was well used too! And thanks for having several classic games available. We unexpectedly rekindled a long-time love for Scrabble! :-)

Appreciated the kitchen appliances and linens provided. We left some extra fruit and vegetables and sodas in the fridge - hope they went to good use, either for your team or for the next guests.

I know that I can speak confidently for all 7 of us when I say that we absolutely LOVED our holiday and would highly recommend Waters Edge - and would come back again. Many thanks!
Owner's Response: Thanks so much Kristin. I am so glad that you guys had a great time at the house. I love Café Matisse also.

We hope to see you down in Nassau again sometime.

This is one of the few places I've stayed on a vacation rental that looked exactly like the pictures and lived up to the description provided by the owners. This place is amazing. We woke up every morning to a postcard view and spent many happy hours hanging out by the pool, in one of the beautiful rooms in the house, or in the ocean. The house has tons of space and is full of dark wood accents, high ceilings, and beautiful tile work. If I had to come up with a criticism, it would only be that I wish the beds were king size, as my husband is 6'5" and the queen wasn't too comfortable for us. The rooms are plenty big to accommodate larger beds. But that is really a minor issue. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat. The neighborhood is one of the nicest on the island and close enough to get to everything you'd want to see. I can't imagine you'll find a more perfect vacation rental in Nassau.
Owner's Response: Thanks Jennifer for the wonderful review. We are so glad you had a fun time at the house. Hopefully we'll see you down in Nassau again sometime - and we'll have a bigger bed for your "king size" hubby!

House was clean, comfortable and private. had a small problem with maintenance which was fixed quickly. view was awesome. so relaxing to just sit and stare at the ocean. was provided name of a taxi driver by our owner . he took great care of us. people of the island friendly and helpful. i would recommend the bahamian walking food tour and the tour of the rum distillery. had a bad experience at the poop deck.
Owner's Response: Thanks Patty for the great review and we are glad you had an awesome time in The Bahamas. Joe, our taxi frind, is always very knowledgable and trustworthy - so glad you guys used him. Hopefully we'll see you again some time at Water's Edge.

Birthday Celebration in the Bahamas

Perfect. - That is the word that describes our stay at Water's edge.
Water's Edge was our first experience with vrbo and it was a fabulous one.
The house was just as pictured and described.
The owners had a book with importance information about the house. It also includes information about activities and restaurants. They thought of everything.
We ordered pizza twice from the suggested pizza restaurant(Marco's) in the book. So easy: we called they came.
We went to the beach suggested in the book: Cabbage beach- so easy to get to and beautiful- It had both sun and shade on the beach.(Only $1 to cross the bridge)
At the house we had a small boat to go out in the water, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, washer, dryer, WiFi, TV, coffee pot, microwave, etc. The house was spacious - we had plenty of room for 6 adults and a child. The house manager was available for questions and returned our calls/ emails really fast. She even offered to mail postcards for us so we didn't have to find a post office (that was really thoughtful).
Water's Edge was so very comfortable- from the moment we entered the front door I felt right at home. We were given information prior to our visit that prepared us for our stay and I think that was very helpful.
The ocean water at Water's Edge was beautiful and so clear. One day a sting ray came to with in 10 feet of the wall and stayed for hours.
It was just a beautiful place to celebrate my birthday.
I think it is necessary to rent a car so that you can get around the island safely, but keep in mind that the roads are narrow.
We visited Fort Charlotte and really enjoyed walking around the fort. It was only $1 for admission and we were able to take a stroller through most of the fort.
US dollars were accepted every where we visited. Credit cards were a little difficult to us at some locations.( they would say that the phone lines were not working)
We loved our stay at the Water's Edge!!!
Owner's Response: Thanks Patti for such a lovely review and the information for our future guests. I am so glad that your stay was both enjoyable and memorable. I hope we will see you guys down in Nassau again soon. Regards, Mark

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.
