A bungalow adjacent to white sand dunes and private pool
Just feet from the crystal waters of the Caribbean, this beachfront villa offers the perfect blend of beauty, quiet, and comfort.
Beachfront villa 717 has a large new deck to enjoy the sunset on the dunes.
Fully equipped and furnished 2-bedroom villa is located adjacent to both the sweeping white beach and sparkling community pool within the Beach Villa Owners’ Association grounds. Perfectly family-sized, the villa has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, full kitchen with appliances, and sitting room with television.
Just a few minutes' walk from the shops and restaurants of Treasure Cay and half hour from Treasure Cay international airport on the island of Abaco, the villa offers incomparable access to one of the more untouched white sand beaches in the Bahamas. The clean, well-maintained pool is, like the ocean, only feet from your front door, and is restricted to Beach Villa Owners’ Association villa tenants and renters only. Laundry service and tennis courts also within the BVOA grounds.

About Stephanie Pfeiffer
Our parents bought this villa and two others in the late 60s and escaped every cold Jersey winter of their retirement enjoying the warm waters and fresh air of Treasure Cay, playing a lot of tennis and bridge while they were at it. We still have all three villas available, but have prioritized the one recently renovated. Please let us know if you have a large party or an availability conflict and we can discuss the other villas.
Stephanie Pfeiffer purchased this Villa in 1966

Best location on one of very best beaches!
My husband, 4 year old, and 4 month old spent 10 relaxing, beautiful days in Turtle Cay at the Pfieffers’ beach villa. We are convinced that it is truly the best location in Turtle Cay: 1) The Beach Villas complex is in the middle of the beautiful, curved TC beach, so it has views to both points and a panorama of the white sand, turquoise water, and distant islands in between, 2) The Pfieffer villa is the closest villa to the beach - just over two small dunes that protect the house from the sea - and has a private path to access the beach, affording privacy and convenience, and 3) Everything we needed for the week was a short walk away (beach - 1 min, pool - 2 min, grocery, liquor store, restaurants - 5 min).
The villa itself was quite comfortable and as advertised. We immediately opened front and back doors, the windows, and 6 sliding glass doors, which allowed the tropical breezes to flow through (although there are ceiling fans in every room and there’s a functioning A/C that we used for the final two days when the winds died down and the temps and humidity soared). The villa has been renovated nicely - it’s clean, white, open, and has a main room that flows from kitchen with bar to living room to dining room, which was clearly where we spent any indoor time. Two bedrooms with separate baths completed the interior, which is bright and clean. The kitchen was very well stocked - we had enough cooking and dishware to cook for 50! Stephanie also made sure we had a pack ‘n play (there were two in the villa). Tons of towels (bath and beach) too. The only negative was the presence of some bug wildlife - mosquitoes, small moths, ants - that we dealt with but that kept us remembering that we were in a relatively undisturbed, natural setting in the tropics - not a five star, sterile hotel in a city, and that’s what we’d been after for this trip.
The vast majority of our time was spent outside though...there’s a great deck with a picnic table, tons of toys, and a grill, which we used daily. The beach has beach chairs and four shade “huts” for a break for the sun (where we stationed the baby most days), and the clean pool has tons more chairs, tables, and umbrellas. The association also just completed a large observation deck to view the ocean (it sits atop the dunes/bushes and grasses that separate the villas from the beach).
Private, pristine, and perfect for a quiet beach week! Thanks to Stephanie and House Mngr Donna too.
perfect spot to chill
This was the first girls trip I have ever planned. that being said there were a couple of snafus on my part! I booked thru VRBO under the search of bahamas villas/cottages. Not knowing treasure cay was on the island of Abaco, we booked flights to Nassau! Costing $400 for round trip flight and taxi. So that is my main advise to first time DIY travel agents! lol This villa is located in the absolute best spot! The pool is located right outside the front door and the beautiful beach is located not much further! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. We had plenty of towels, beach towels and extra linens for our stay. The weather was pretty cold and rainy during our stay (we even lost power for a short period) so we were pretty much held up in our little villa except for one day which was wonderful for reading and playing games. Unfortunately, there was a big negative for me and that was the beds were very uncomfortable. I really loved, loved, loved this villa and would definitely return if the mattresses were updated!
I came back to Treasure Cay after missing my annual visit for a couple of years. This is the first time that I stayed in the Pfeiffer villa, and I was very happy with my stay. The villa was very well equipped, and perfectly located next to the pool, with access to the beach over a dune. The kitchen had everything we needed for meals at home, there were books and games for the evening. In Treasure Cay, the cinnamon buns at Florence's were still the best in the world, conch fritters were great at Coco Beach Bar, and there is a new restaurant on the water - pricey, but a last night treat!
Treasure Cay is not for people looking for casinos or other activities, but it is a wonderful refuge with beautiful water, great beach, and amazing sunsets, and the Pfeiffer's villa is a great place to stay. We will be back!
we have been to treasure cay numerous times and we always loved our stays in the beach villa complex. we are a family of four, the girls are 4 and 6, and TC is so easy for us: the best beach right at our door step, great pool, pizza night and lot's of adventures to seek and find.
we stayed in the pfeiffer villa the first time and had an exellent stay. the whole villa was recently renovated and is very nicely decorated. esp. the bathrooms and the kitchen really stood out in comparison to the other villas we had been staying before. also the pfeiffer villa is the perfect location within the beach villa complex: private beach access and right be the pool, yet it still felt very private. we missed a dishwasher but other than that the kitchen was perfectly equipped if you like to do your own cooking. on windy days the porch offers protected space to sit and relax. we all loved it! the pfeiffers are a very friendly family and were helpful when ever we had any questions at all. we can highly recommend staying at their beautiful home!
Beachfront Villa on the perfect beach.
We loved the villa. It was updated, and well decorated. Perfect location right on the beach. Only thing missing was a queen or king size bed. We would definitely go back again.
Ben & Betsy's Village is as wonderful as the photos make it seem. The villa is immaculate, beautifully decorated, flooded with light and very comfortable. Perfectly located, there is a private path to the beach just a few steps away. The Pfeiffers are very helpful and responsive if you have questions. We've stayed in Treasure Cay several times at various villas, but this is now our favorite.
Treasure Cay is a small, quiet town in the Bahamas that boasts one of the most pristine white beaches in the islands, stretching untouched and uncrowded for miles. An uninhabited, wild island lies wading distance from the beach point for adventurous kids and adults to explore. Treasure Cay is a relaxing destination with a handful of restaurants and bars, a golf course, and everything else you could need in walking distance. Day trips by boat from the world-class Treasure Cay marina, including deep sea and bone fishing, snorkeling or diving, make all the hidden gems of the Bahamas accessible.
