Bahamas Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Here is the adventure you have been waiting for....a very private Villa, located directly on the sea of Abaco. Soak in the the pristine sands and crystal turquoise ocean from every room! You will find our newly enlarged great room spacious and comfortable for listening to music from the xm radio, your ipod, or from our cd library. Step outside onto either of the three decks and let the cool ocean breeze take your cares away, or have a relaxing tropical drink under the cooling shade of the cabana. We have spotted dolphin and rays from the deck, as well as a night heron and other numerous birds. This unique spot nestled in the Casuarina pines for shade is literally 25-30 yards from feeling the cool water on your toes and the spray in your hair.

Our Villa is uniquely and comfortably furnished both indoors and out. All linens, towels, and kitchen ware is provided (including a bread machine, crisinart coffee machine, and coffee bean grinder). It is air conditioned and also has ceiling fans in each room.

Located on the eastern side of Great Abaco Island, Treasure Cay is a quiet place to get away, and find adventure. The 3 1/2 mile horseshoe shaped beach that the Villa is located on was listed as One of the Top Ten Beaches in the World by National Geographic. Pick your adventure.....take a walk out the sandbar and find hoards of Sand dollars, Wade to Sunrise Cay (a tiny island off of the tip of Treasure Cay), Kayak in the emerald water, take an Island hopping trip to the out islands....or simply prop your feet up and pull out that book.

This is Abaco.

About Alisa Bigham

Hello, we are Brent & Alisa Bigham. We live in the mountains of Georgia, USA. We have three children. Emily, the oldest, lives with her husband & our first grandchild, Jane, in Chattanooga, TN. Our second child, Seth, lives in Chattanooga also. Our youngest son, Sam(13) is still at home with us. We bought the Villa in 2000 because since the early 80s when we first visited, we had been dreaming about owning a place for our family to gather and make memories. We hope you are able to reconnect & make adventures with your family & friends while you stay in beautiful Treasure Cay.

Alisa Bigham purchased this villa in 2000

Why Alisa Bigham chose Bahamas

We began visiting Abaco in the early 80's and simply fell in love. We always dreamed of owning our own property there, which became a reality in 2000. One our favorite Beach Villa came up for sale, directly on the beach. We bought it and have since enjoyed the get away of our dreams.

What makes this villa unique

We love the community of Treasure Cay; it still carries the traits of another time and age. Close community, quiet beaches, and friendly folk fill the Islands. You can also live a world of adventure: scuba diving, boating, sailing, exploring. Our property is directly on the beach; thus, sometimes the most needed adventure is simply a good book on the deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We straggled into Treasure Cay at 7:45 p.m.(in the dark) -after a long day of travel . We dragged ourselves around the corner to the villa and joyfully entered a Bahamian jewel.Airy,spacious,beautifully,tastefully and imaginatively decorated. The feel and and perspective is marvelous.The view of the unending white sand,the turquoise sea and the barrier islands is soul soothing.A great island,a great villa and a great holiday."

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property cannot be beat! The villa is nicely furnished and outfitted and is larger then most. The owners are easy to work with and respond to any questions or concerns within hours. Definitely a 10 out of 10! Clearly the Bigham's care about their property and that guests/renters have a positive experience in every way!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the beauty of this place and even more about the location of this villa. It was clean, beautiful and ideally located. The patio area was fantastic, we enjoyed grilling out one night for dinner and taking in the beautiful scenery and warm tropical air. You can walk out the front door and you are just a few short steps from the beach. you can see the beautiful turquoise water right from the back yard. The beach is unbelievable. Soft powdery white sand. The color of the water will stun you. I had a picture I showed people when we got back and they thought we photo shopped it because it was so stunning. You can spend hours a day enjoying the water there. It can get so shallow in areas you can walk out into the warm crystal clear water for about a 1/2 mile. I the tide gets low enough you can walk to a little island near the beach. We snorkeled there every day and dove around for shells. The shelling was great. The people were friendly and it was peaceful there. Enough people to have fun talking to and meeting but small enough number that at times you could be the only ones in a section of the beach. Great activities. Abaco Adventures offers trips out to different areas to visit. We highly recommend the wildlife adventure trip. You get to stop at 3 different Cays and enjoy feeding and hanging out in the water at a beautiful pretty secluded cove on another Cay with sting rays and Lemon sharks. Then we got to stop at another Cay that has a population of wild pigs that live there. We got to feed them and they will come out into the water with you. We will definitely be back. Best combination ever of relaxation, peacefully and fun on a vacation we have ever had. Highly recommend this place. Alisa and Brent have the best villa there I felt. Perfect spot!! Thanks again! We'll be back!

Perfect home by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home on a lovely spot overlooking the sea. Everything you need for a very relaxing time. The area is very quiet with only a few restaurants, a small grocery store, liqueur store and bakery, thats about it. So if you are looking for a very simple, relaxing time away this is the place!

Treasure Cay

  • 5 of 5

Alisa was fantastic to deal with.

Place was really cute, functional and right on a fabulous beach.

We had coffee every morning on the deck looking at the ocean.

Thank you,

Hurricane Joaquin delayed our arrival by two days, but Alisa was so gracious and allowed us to stay on for two days beyond our original end date. Treasure Cay in October was so unbelievably beautiful, hot, and deserted!! The beach is by far the most wonderful, from the amazing sink into sand to the warm turquoise water. Alisa's home is the closest one to the beach, you can hear the waves all day and night long! One has to be prepared for really no restaurants being open (at least during the timeframe we were there), but if you plan ahead, bring a cooler, or shop in Marsh Harbor at Maxwells, it is all good. Alisa's home is very comfortable, it had everything we needed to prepare gourmet meals and there really wasn't anything we felt we needed, but didn't have. I would highly recommend this property. We will be back! :)
