Overview

Nassau & Paradise Island House Rental Photos and Description

Pool, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, sleeps 8.

Have a unique experience at Water's Edge.... Come on down and enjoy our special oceanfront Villa and private pool.

You'll love it - We are consistently rated the best place on the island at this price point - please check out our reviews to see.

Water's Edge is a wonderful private villa with 130 feet of ocean front and all the modern amenities that ensure you will not miss home. This luxury private 2800 sq foot villa on the serene eastern end of Nassau is the perfect escape for your family. Enjoy lounging in a hammock on the huge back patio with panoramic views of Athol and Rose Island and cool down in our private, crystal clear, private fresh water pool with soothing fountain. The pool has just been renewed and re-surfaced!

Open the back gate and step down in to the ocean for a swim, or row our dinghy out a few hundred feet to snorkel the many surrounding reefs. Or if the ocean is not for you then relax in our freshwater pool that overlooks the ocean. Spend evenings sipping Bahama Mamas seated at the outdoor wet bar and grill the fish you caught on our stone charcoal grill.

Brew a cup of coffee in the recently renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Count the sailboats on the ocean from the expansive shower in the brand new master bathroom. The house include 4 bedrooms, all with Queen Beds (one room is an attic room) and can sleep up to 8 people. All the beds have been recently renewed. All linens and towels included. There is a slightly sunken formal dining room overlooking the beautiful front patio with local flora and fauna and a relaxing sun-room overlooking the ocean with a cozy reading area and casual dining section.

Open the french doors leading to the back patio and a very large central living space enjoys the cooling eastern breezes throughout the year. Also outside is brick BBQ grill and covered bar (with sink) and drinks area - perfect for evening cocktails.

What makes Water's Edge the ultimate rental? We provide Cable TV, free WIFI broadband throughout the house and property for those visitors who may need to stay connected while in Paradise. A dinghy and snorkelling equipment are provided for your enjoyment. We also provide a phone that gives you the option of local calls to make reservations and inquiries at no charge. Enjoy the privacy of the 'non-tourist' area with easy access to exploring the rest of what Nassau has to offer. We also have optional daily housekeeping (additional costs apply).

About Mark Cabrelli

Water's Edge is owned by the Cabrelli family. We enjoyed living in our beautiful home for 5 years before deciding to take our daughter on a traveling adventure. We now live in the USA.

Mark Cabrelli purchased this house in 2007

Why Mark Cabrelli chose Nassau & Paradise Island

After Mark worked in the Bahamas on a contract we fell in love with Nassau. We chose Water's Edge after an extensive search as we were looking for a traditional Bahamian home with modern amenities directly on the ocean with a private freshwater pool.

Nassau teems with Bahamian and British flavor. The capital of The Bahamas boasts miles of spectacular beaches and stretches of vivid coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. Dance to calypso music, savor fried crab or play dominos with locals in the diverse city. Don't leave without also learning about the country's interesting past. Shop, dine, and sightsee, particularly along busy Bay Street, or if you're a James Bond fan, visit the many movie sites. The town retains many of its characteristic pastel-colored British colonial buildings, including pink-hued Government House. Visit during the famed Junkanoo Festival (Christmas and New Year, also once in the Summer) to experience a high-energy parade of spectacularly costumed dancers.

What makes this house unique

We knew as soon we walked out of the back patio doors and saw that amazing view that Water's Edge was a unique and wonderful place. The private pool is a fabulous thing to be used throughout the year. We fell in love with the sunrises (something to behold), the Abaco pine beams in the cathedral ceilinged, living room, the hummingbirds that visit and the ocean breeze that cools the home throughout the year.

Owner's Response: Thanks guys for the great response. I see that you met our resident spotted eagle rays - they live around there and are always around to say hello. We have also some upgrades for this year for the villa - we just resurfaced the pool. I know that you stayed at the house for most of the time, but next time I will give other suggestions for great things to do nearby. We hope to see you again sometime soon in the future. Mark & Lisa

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our daughter son and his family spent 1 week at Water's Edge and wished it was longer. Joe picked us up and could not be more accommodating a very dependable driver and great guy! Jonquil the house manager was very helpful upon our arrival and a phone call way if we had a question. From the moment you enter the front patio and open the front door and see the panoramic views it was breathtaking. No need to leave but only a short ride to Paradise Island...also we went to Compass Point furthest point West for our last evening and it was truly beautiful... Thank you so much Mark & Lisa

Ps.. Cannot wait to return ❤️❤️❤️

Owner's Response: Thanks very much guys for your kind words. I am staying in May and will be taking more photos for the web site to show more of the views - it is hard to describe much of the beauty. I am also glad that you liked Joe and Jonquil - they have been with me for years and really do help make our guests happy. Looking forward to your return visit. All the best, Mark & Lisa

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family for just a week, and wished it could have lasted much longer. While the pictures are a great indication of the accommodations, as I shared with the host, the pool and home were actually considerably bigger than we expected. There are a number of relaxing areas on the property that our family of 8 could enjoy. It was wonderful. We especially liked the fact that we could snorkel and swim right off the back. The water was routinely breathtaking. One night on the patio, we were surprised by the light-up fish swimming by. Amazing. Bioluminescent fish? Who knew. While we also had fun at Atlantis and Sandy Toes, one of the host's finest recommendations was having a sunset cocktail at the One and Only Ocean Club. Worth the effort, for sure. The owner's property was perfectly cleaned, and everything went smoothly. The owner did everything he said he would. This is a great retreat. Mike and Janey Mc.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the fab review. I knew you guys would love it. My issue is trying to get the full image and impact of Water's Edge across on Homeway - because once guests arrive they love it! I have just relined the pool and so will try to get better pictures on the web. Too bad that you guys were only able to stay for one week - it just means that you ill have to come back sometime! By the way, Ocean Club Bar.......best bar in the world! See you back soon I hope, Mark & Lisa

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Mark's home is beautiful, modern, clean and has stunning views - all within a quiet residential neighborhood about a 20 minute drive from Paradise Island. Communication from Mark and his property manager was crystal clear and helpful before and during our stay. We had read in older reviews that the mattresses weren't great, but clearly, they have all been replaced with new ones. We slept so well listening to the surf crash against the ocean wall in front of the house. Our 2 families (4 adults, 3 kids) had a spectacular week at Water's Edge. Thank you, Mark!

Owner's Response: Hi guys - I am so glad that you enjoyed the villa. (And that you noticed the bed improvements that we made ;-)! ). The views across the ocean really are spectacular with Rose Island in the background - and the sunrise always takes my breath away. Glad I could be helpful for you during your stay. Please come back and visit again. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Stunning traditional Bahamian villa by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The property is located at the east end of New Providence in a very peaceful and upmarket neighbourhood. But is only a ten or fifteen minute drive from the attractions in downtown Nassau. It is a beautiful traditional Bahamian villa with many of the original features, but modernised sympathetically.

The jewel in the crown is the sun terrace incorporating the pool, with a beautiful view over the ocean. The sunrises and sunsets are stunning. The photos on the website give a very accurate picture of the villa and the terrace.

A perfect location for a relaxing family holiday.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the terrific review and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the villa. We try to keep all amenities up to date as much as possible and have made several new improvements to the house. I'm glad you had the chance to enjoy the sunrises - they are spectacular. All the best and we hope to see you here soon again. Mark & Lisa

Water's Edge is situated on the quiet, residential eastern end of the island amongst many other private luxury properties and away from the major (noisy) tourist hubs. You will find many locals out for their morning walk in our area as it is a gorgeous view around the end of the island. It is a short 5 minute drive to downtown Nassau, local restaurants and Paradise Island and Atlantis. The ocean is just a walk down the back steps and you will find many reefs within rowing distance (with our dinghy) and beautiful snorkeling. There are also 2 beaches within swimming and walking distance from the house. The world famous Cabbage Beach (Paradise Island) is a 5-10 minute drive away. There is a local grocery store within walking distance as well.

A well-stocked activity and guidebook is provided in the house as well as maps of the local area. Please check out our customer reviews.

Nassau teems with Bahamian and British flavor. The capital of The Bahamas boasts miles of spectacular beaches and stretches of vivid coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. Dance to calypso music, savor fried crab or play dominos with locals in the diverse city. Don't leave without also learning about the country's interesting past.
