|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
'IT'S ALL TROPICAL' is a year-round Abaco Bahamas vacation rental home conveniently located in the quaint community settlement of Treasure Cay just off the Treasure Cay Beach located in Abaco, Bahamas. There are no traffic lights, just a 'round about', on this ''out island'' paradise & you'll find a combination of traffic (what little there is) predominantly by pedestrian, bikes and golf carts.
This vacation rental house is centrally located to the famous Treasure Cay Beach, Spinnaker marina restaurant, Coco Beach Bar & grill (just a 3-4 minute walk down the beach to the right) , full service marina, Tipsy Seagull marina bar, marina gift shop, liquor store, grocery store, bakery, post office, RBC bank, hardware store, taxi stand, dive shop, boat rentals, golf cart rentals, car rentals, scooter rentals and bike rentals. All of these facilities are within very easy walking distance - day or night. There is also Great Abaco Island's only Golf Course less than a mile away - a Dick Wilson design. You'll pass it (on the right) just before driving into Treasure Cay.
Be sure to see the 'areal view' in the pictures to get a good idea of where the villa is in relation to the remainder of Treasre Cay. ''It's All Tropical'' is a single-level free-standing villa nestled within a small, quiet community of similar villas, all connected via lighted sidewalks just wide enough for a golf cart. You'll enjoy walking around the area to see how different each villa is decorated. There are two separate patios all surrounded by lush vegetation including coconut trees and several banana trees (if you're lucky, you just might have your own bananas when you stay.) There are no roads to cross to get to the beach so the children can walk safely and easily between the Treasure Cay Beach/pool and the villa.
Each bedroom in this quaint vacation villa has a queen bed and a private full bathroom (tub/shower), closet space and dresser with mirror.
The entire vacation rental villa has porcelain tile flooring for your convenience and health, and is textured to provide traction even when wet. Additional sleeping can be accommodated on the den hide-a-bed sofa.
We enjoy the services of a local caretaker (Donna) who also works each day in the villa area in case you have any additional needs. The Washer and Dryer facility contains several washers/dryers and is located at the office building about a two minute walk from the villa. They are available M-F during the day and Saturday until noon. During normal office hours, filtered (Reverse Osmosis) water is also available for 50 cents (refill gallon jugs located in the villa). Just take the jugs and your money over to the laundry facility and place them on the table - come back later and they'll be filled for you. If you come back after hours, they'll usually be placed just outside the door for your convenience.
There are numerous local annual events including billfish tournaments, Junkanoo, Barefoot Man Concerts (Great Guana Cay - early March and late July), Island Roots Heritage Festival (Green Turtle Cay - usually the first weekend in May), Power Boat Races late July at the Treasure Cay ferry dock to Green Turtle and the Cheeseburger Party and Abaco Regatta time are around July 4th - just to name a very few! LOBSTER Season starts August 1st.
Adventures with Brendal snorkeling, diving and picnicking can be booked through Brendals Dive Center on Green Turtle. Adventure day with Lincoln with a picnic is also available out of Green Turtle. All booking information will be sent through a document when you book with Beach Vill 685.
Sunday trips to Nippers on Guana Cay can be booked through Brenda's Dive enter or Sunset Marina. You can always rent a boat and make the trip yourself!
Whether you want to spend the entire time alone with your family or get out and do something every day with others who have similar interests - you can do it all . . . by the way, doing 'nothing' does count as an activity in the Abacos! Remember, everyone is on ''island time'', including YOU!
The beach area for the villa community has its own collection of chaise lounge chairs.
Residing in South Carolina, been vacationing in Treasure Cay, Abaco, Bahamas since April, 1989. Visit several times a year and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to be friends with local Bahamians who operate so many of the local establishments or offer all kinds of services. First visit, immediately fell in love with the people & Treasure Cay Beach which is about a 3 1/2 mile cresent shaped beach with protected gin-clear water.
Mary Anne Huggins purchased this villa in 2007
Initially purchased villa for personal use, but with a few friends asking to consider offering it as a vacation rental house property, decided to make it available for rental. It seems ideal for a very affordable getaway for 1 or 2 couples or small family.
Treasure Cay has been first choice for several logistical reasons including the fact that the airport is just 10 minutes away, there is a local medical clinic within a two minute walk from our villa,a local EMS team, local stores open daily, a 3 1/2 mile crescent-shaped white sand Treasure Cay Beach with gin-clear water . . . well, you get the picture.
3 1/2 mile crescent shape white sand beach with beautiful crystal clear water. Low key, quiet with wonderful people. Great boating, fishing, snorkeling, diving, exploring, relaxing .... etc ..... etc
This truly was a perfect little villa to stay in. It had everything that one could need and more. Kitchen was fully stocked. Plenty of towels. Two large bedrooms and a comfy sofa.
Mary Anne was a perfect and friendly host. Most attentive to all my questions and needs. The villa is much closer to the swimming pool and the beach than I understood from the description. The villa is in much of a need of some TLC, but that would not stop me from coming back. Thank you Mary Anne, Donna and Gordon for making it a pleasant stay for me :)
I have to tell you that we own a villa close to this one and we needed extra room for friends during our stay. The owner is extremely helpful. The air conditioner had a minor problem and it was resolved immediately. The place was cool, comfortable, clean and had all the accommodations that were listed. I would recommend renting from this owner. She was nice, helpful and responsive. The villa was perfect!!!!
The unit we stayed in was really very nice and exceeded out expectations based on write ups and pictures. Well equipped-even had some swim fins we used on snorkelling excursion to Brendals on Green Turtle Cay. Recent bathroom upgrades were well done. The pool in this 120 unit complex was in great shape and the beach about 100 yds away was spectacular. The units are older but well maintained and the planned infrastructure upgrades show an ongoing focus on keeping things very nice. The staff was very friendly. While there was music nightly in the few local restaurants, in general the community was pretty laid back and focused around the marina and beaches. Our late May week found the whole area very uncrowded, although the excursion to Nipper's for their Sunday pig roast put us into a busy party scene. Yes, we will probably go back
Wife and I stayed 10 days. Emailed owner several times with questions before renting. Owner was very responsive. When we arrived, Villa was just as owner described, no surprises. Very clean, handicap walk in shower was nice touch. We are going back soon.
We stayed for 5 nights, the house was just as advertised. It was very clean and the beds were just right. The A/C worked beautifully and kept the house cool. The phones and Wifi were a big help keeping in touch with locals and family in Texas. I can't tell you anything about the TV since we never even turned it on. LOL. Mary Anne gave us all the information we needed and we really enjoyed the stay, we are planning on coming back again with the kids. The house is in the Beach Villa area and we only rented a golf cart for 1 day to explore, but the house is within walking distance to everything. We ate breakfast at Cafe Le Florence and it was wonderful, the Spinnaker at the Marina was awesome and the ladies waiting on us helped me give my wife here anniversary band. The Tipsy Seagull is where we hung out the most and they filled our Yeti cups with Rum Punch and the food at the Junkanoo Java was great. We made it the fist night for pizza night and everything was great. We took a day with Lincoln and caught fish, he made lunch and we fed the stingrays and sharks and he took us to see the Pigs, which was not on the schedule.. We hit Nippers on Sunday and had a blast. All in all we had a blast and a great relaxing time for our 10 year anniversary.

We love Abaco. I you love peace and quiet, a great beach, friendly neighbors and hearing the waves on windy evenings, this is the place to be. We stayed 2 weeks and had a great time meeting other guests we had known during prior visits. This was our seventh year. We are a couple in the seventies and the mix with younger couples with children went smoothly. The villa is a few steps from the beach and the pool , confortable, and reasonably priced.
C`était notre septième visite et encore cette fois nous avons adoré cet endroit. Nous sommes un couple de septuagénaires et cette petite villa est idéale. L`endroit est calme, confortable,et privé. Près de la très belle plage pas très achalandée, une belle piscine et des voisins très discrets, pour la plupart propriétaire et amical.
It's All Tropical has a Bocci Ball Set and Horseshoes stored in the closet or under the bed. In addition,there are several coolers for your convenience. If you ask around, there is usually someone around to do hair braiding - Shantell in the bike rental shop often does this. If you need any assistance getting set up for a boat, bike or golf cart rental just let me know. Otherwise, will have many of the phone numbers for contacting the local rental businesses - just look at the directory page for Treasure Cay.I know all of these folks personally and am happy to assist in lining up any rentals and usually with better pricing, as a service to making your stay enjoyable and easy. Can also arrange a reliable and courteous taxi to pick you up at the airport. As of 6/2012 rates are aout $30 for 2 from TC airport to the villa or about $90 for 2 from Marsh.
