The sea on your doorstep ...
About Paola Alvino
I am half Manx, half Italian, speak with a northern England accent, but feel mostly Bahamian, with a history here that started when I was 3 years old. It makes it hard to answer the question, "Where are you from?"! I feel that my heart is in the sun, sea and sand of The Bahamas - whether the hustle and bustle of the capital, Nassau, the quaint New-England style of Hope Town, or the raw beauty of the Exumas. But I also feel that Luogosano is my home (where everyone seems to be Alvino), as well as Douglas Head in the Isle of Man, where I was born. Wherever you are from, I promise that you'll feel right at home here in this gem of a house in the safe, gated community of Treasure Cove. We can't wait for you to experience it!
Paola Alvino purchased this House in 2016
Why Paola Alvino chose Nassau
We live a few steps away from Sunrise by the Sea across the street so are within easy reach if you need us. We have always loved the house and knew visitors to The Bahamas would love it too! It really is a hidden gem. There are no neighbours on either side and just one other house on the ocean side of the road about 200 metres away.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the house primarily because of it's location and the back patio! It's a great place to chat with friends, play guitar, sip wine, relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. There's a view of the sea from every room in the house and large windows to truly appreciate it.

If you want privacy and the ocean in your backyard this is the place! The water was quite choppy during our stay so we weren’t able to kayak or snorkel but we swam and floated just fine. We were only a mile from a very nice grocery and liquor store. The air conditioning was completely off when we arrived so our first night was very hot. Once the house cooled down we were comfortable but it never really got cold enough for our liking.
I was on a vacation with my extended family. Our stay couldn’t have been more perfect. The house is right on the water, view is amazing, and the weather was great. The host has been very helpful prior to our arrival as well as during our stay. The host has thought of everything and pretty much everything and anything you can think of is already at the house.
Any questions you might have has probably been out already answered in a binder that’s at the house. However if you have a question for the host they’re quick to respond.
We have not arrived home yet but we are excited to write a review about this amazing house. Location, location, location! The house was well appointed , clean, and spacious. Having the beach right at our back door was the best part. We watched sunrises, sunsets , and we were even blessed with a rainbow over the ocean one day after a rain. It was a plus to have kayaks, snorkeling gear, and beach shoes at our disposal. Paola and Johnny were very attentive to our questions and needs. You will love this home! We hope to be back again !
Thank you so much Patricia! It was such a pleasure to have you guys stay at our home. We hope to see you back again one day soon! Paola & Johnnie x
Beach House Vacation
The property is as advertised. Beautiful ocean views inside and out. We saw turtles, stingray, eel and many tropical fish. Enough space for all. We had everything we needed. We cooked in almost the entire time. (Store nearby is a bonus.) Great communication with owners/managers. Loved the binder that is full of contact #s and helpful information. The ACs worked great. Water dispenser was great to have and many other things I could list.
I have rented houses all over and this one by fair has been the most well thoughout property that caters to the vacationers!
It was really fantastic. All others in my group ditto the sentiments. No one disappointed. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your kind words Debra! We're so happy you had a great experience - that's what makes doing what we do so rewarding!
Love the house
We had 6 adults in the house and it was perfect for us. Plenty to do at the house to keep you in the Bahama spirit. I would recommend this house for sure.
Thank you Steve!
My family and I had a wonderful time at this property! The house is fantastic and wonderfully appointed. The private beach was the best part of all. We enjoyed the covered patio, endless views, playing in the sand and ocean immensely. We liked being out of the heart of tourist area, yet close enough to drive to activities. We look forward to our next visit!
Treasure Cove is a quiet residential community at the eastern end of New Providence with 24-hour security and a gated entrance. The beauty of this home is that it enjoys the security of a safe neighbourhood but the feel of being on a private island. You will feel like a true-true Bahamian.
Buses are few and far between at this end of the island, and it's about a 10-minute walk just to get out of the Treasure Cove community, so renting a car is a must. But if you like to walk, jog or swim you have a safe, tranquil neighbourhood and the ocean to choose from! The Palm Cay Marina and Beach Club is in the next community along on the Yamacraw Road - literally a five-minute drive away - with a restaurant, beach bar, yoga, live music and other entertainment.
