My name is Isabel Blitz and after 15 years in Vermont I moved with my husband and our three children to Annapolis, Maryland, where we have resided until 2015.
Now we are Floridian residents in Hobe Sound, on the Treasure Coast, just across Grand Bahama Island.
As our vacation home and secondary residence, in 2006 my husband and I designed, built and decorated the Villa in Grand Bahama Island, with the intention of gradually spending more time in Grand Bahama Island, away from the business stress and pressures of our professional lives and closer to the beauty and peacefulness that our property in Grand Bahama Island offers.
Our Caribe Treasure Villa is a dream come true and a real paradise for those who demand, take care, and appreciate the best.
Isabel Blitz purchased this villa in 2006
Caribe Treasure Villa is conveniently located in idyllic private peninsula, across Princess Isle, and bordering the pristine tidal waters of Dundee Bay Channel. All top of the line appliances and high-end furnishing are there for you to enjoy and have your best Caribbean vacation ever.
The villa is located within minutes of the best wild sandy beaches you can imagine, delicious ethnic restaurants, well-appointed grocery stores, a great variety of entertainment in “Our Lucaya” and “Count Basie Square”, and world-class fishing spots.
Caribe Treasure villa and Grand Bahama Island will make you and your company dream about beauty, adventures, and discovery.
From the reflecting infinity pool and the pool deck, you will marvel at the breathtaking views of incredible sunrises and the majesty of sunset skies.
For anyone who demands and appreciates the best that life has to offer, our Caribe Treasure Villa will reward you with a unique experience in a real paradise.
Here for a week-long celebration - 3 couples - 4 of us all turning 50 while here!
we rented a mini-van (ouch!) from Brad's, which was very reasonable and worked well. we drove out to the West End of the Island - don't purchase a conch shell anywhere as there are piles of them along the raodside, despite the signs of "no dumping of conch shells is permited".
The weather during our stay was delightful respite from the awful Northeast winter, yet often too breezy and chilly for swimmers. so not too much time in the water.
We went out to Deadman's Cay where we found many treasure on the beach - neat shells & sea fans.
We spent a day at nearby Xanadu Beach, where Antoine, the Chef/Bartender, made what turned out to be the most wonderful meal - sandwiches of fish caught that day, fries made from potatoes he cut to order, as well as cole slaw prepared while the potatoes simmered. - slow (so order early) but worth the wait.
Dinner at the After Deck was unimpressive. The meal served at Sabor was good; service, however, was truly poor. The timing of meals was so off that some of us were finished before others were served.
We rented scooters and drove to the [Lucaya] National Park to visit the Beach and Caves. While we all agree that Gold Rock Beach is nice, I think that others were equally as good.
We had lunch that day at Banana Bay on Fortune Bay Drive. A fabulous beach-front location + a good lunch.
As we arrived by small, private planes, we were quite mobile & flew to Abaco one day, ferried out to Hopetown on Ubow Cay. It was truly lovely!! Quaint and picturesque.
The International Bazaar was vacated so all shopping is at Our Lucaya Village, where Friday and Saturday bring live music and entertainment.
The house served us well, was very well-appointed, with a lovely open layout which was perfect for the gathering of friends.
Thank you Isabel and Luis for sharing your home with us.

We had a great time. The owner were supper nice and took the time to share some insite about the island.
The home was perfect. Nice and big. Every thing was very clean and worked perfectly.
Kids had a great time in the pool. Boat dock and shore power worked perfectly as well.
We had a great time and recommend the home fully.
I have not a single negative thing to say about this house and experience. The owners of the home are incredible people who went above and beyond anything I could have ever expected. They are both such nice people. The house is amazing and is in perfect condition. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful home and place. I hope to come back one day soon.
I couldn't fault this place. The pictures really don't do the villa justice as it is so much larger and grander than it appears. The house is immaculately clean - and I am ridiculously fussy!- and the views across the Coco Channel are beautiful. The kitchen is huge and maxed-out with new and spotlessly clean gadgets and equipment, making self-catering more of a pleasure than a chore. The memories of swimming in the infinity pool with my children and watching sea turtles playing in the Chanel will stay with me forever. Heaven...
My husband and I rented this villa for our 20th anniversary. I thought that it might not be as expansive, as luxurious, or as private as it looked in the photos on the site, because photos can often be deceiving. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the house was even more beautiful and the location was more private and breathtaking than the photos would lead me to believe.
Also adding to the great experience was the fact that we were warmly greeted by the property manager and her adorable baby. She made sure to tell us all we needed about the house and checked in on occasion. At one point the house lost power (although there is a generator, it can only sustain part of the house, so we did not realize that the area had lost power), we called a bit late to ask why we didn't have air throughout the house. She quickly realized the problem and checked the next day to be sure that we were comfortable.
The house was immaculate and the pool was beautiful and pristine--it was my first time in a private infinity pool. It was also fully stocked with anything you would need in the kitchen and towels for the pool, etc.
The house was also stocked with maps and guides to the island. We discovered Agave, a fantastic restaurant in town to rival those in DC that was latin fusion and an older, authentic Greek restaurant, Zorba's, was right near the latin fusion restaurant and we also visited it a lot, too.
We started our trip with a couples massage on the beach at the Our Lucaya Beach and Golf Resort. Now my husband says that we will always start our vacations with a couples massage.
The house is very large and while we had the perfect romantic getaway, we look forward to bringing back a group of good friends to take greater advantage of the space. It will be a memorable trip where everyone can gather together or have time on their own.
We heartily recommend staying at this villa for your trip to the Bahamas.
This well appointed slice of heaven exceeded our already great expectations. Our family as a rule is unusually picky with regards to rentals but we found ourselves hard pressed to place our finger on anything significantly lacking at this veritable treaure of a "home". Well done mates, you will be seeing us again!
Una casa preciosa, decorada con elegancia delicada y lujo discreto. El canal que linda la propiedad es un autentico aquario, y los amaneceres y puestas de sol han sido para mi, inolvidables.
Para el buen vivir de unas vacaciones paradisiacas, la casa es increible y tiene todas las comodidades deseadas.
Facil acceso, vistas preciosas, lugar tranquilo.
Sin reservas, la recomiendo a todo el mundo.
Ah..., se me olvidaba: No hay nada como deleitarse con un buen Single-Malt on-the-rocks, al anochecer, sentado al borde de la piscina sin fin, y dejar que los vientos aliseos te acaricien...
