Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Den Hide-A-Bed Sofa, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6); close pool/beach

'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.

About Mary Anne Huggins

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

Why Mary Anne Huggins chose Bahamas

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.

What makes this villa unique

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

Needs TLC to be perfect!

  • 4 of 5

The Beach and the Pool are the best I have seen on the Bahamas! The pool in the Winter even has solar heat to it.

The property (house) needs some attention to make it right for the next visit.

The stove needs new burners.

The remotes for TV and Dish did not work so we had no TV all week. We aren't TV users so it didn't mean much to us.

The flashlight needs batteries.

Great little villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel to the caribbean and stay at condos or villas through VRBO and this was a great find. The community was very quiet. The walk to the beach was very short and the beach was one of the best we have seen. We walked the beach several times and there was never more than a handful of people on the beach at a given time. The shelling was great! We rented a golf cart, but you really don't need one. You can walk up to the store or to different restaurants/bars/cafe. We were able to go to some local gift shops and see the surrounding area with the cart. We easily booked a couple of dive trips/tours with the local tour shop. Everyone in the area are very friendly and you can tell it is a close knit community. The villa had everything we needed. We will definitely return.

Had a wonderful stay here with my wife - such a close proximity to the beautiful Treasure Cay Beach. You can't beat it. The cottage met all our required needs and more. Thanks for a great stay!

quaint and comfortable- very close to pool/beach/restaurant/bar/grocery

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Had everything we needed. Only two beach towels, so may need to bring extra, but otherwise clean, comfortable and great location.

Perfect

  • 4 of 5

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 :)

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.
