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

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.

Fabulous Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home truly lived up to its name- you are right on the edge of the water! What an amazing time my family had together on holiday while at this home. We enjoyed coffee at sunrise, snorkeling, swimming in the pool, rowing in the dinghy and laying in the hammock under a starlit night. Water's Edge is very well maintained, very private and you feel relaxed and at home immediately! The kitchen is nicely updated & well stocked with all you need to cook. We cancelled a car rental after meeting Joe- a real treasure! Use him, he's a wealth of information- he will take great care of you if you want to head out. We walked to the grocery store a few times- easy, less than 15 minutes and even rode the jitney into town once from the pick up in front of SuperValue (grocery store) near the house. Mark is very responsive to all your questions- just ask. We found the entire process of renting this house easy. I would never trade staying at a resort for the wonderful privacy & warmth of this home that enabled our family "to be a family" for the week. Thank you to Mark and his lovely staff.

Stunning Villa on Nassau, Bahamas

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Water's edge Bahamas was spectacular. Everything was as stated in it's description. The house was more than comfortable for our group which consisted of two families. We had 4 adults and 3 adult children, who ranged in ages from 16 to 20 yrs old. There was plenty to do at the house. Snorkel off the back porch, tube in the ocean, swim in the pool, etc. We made a few trips to Paradise Island for boat rides, beach days, and dinner. Very easy to get around the Island. Shopping was great. Stores were surprisingly stocked with everything you could need. Even gluten free items. We also brought a cooler full of frozen foods along with a suitcase of dry goods. Customs didn't even raise an eyebrow. We went to get fresh fish at the dock as suggested by the owners, it was delicious! The kitchen was well stocked. It even had a refrigerator that had an ice maker! We would definitely come back to this Villa.

Owner's Response: Hi Guys Thanks for the terrific review and we are so glad you enjoyed the villa. We try to keep it in top shape for our guests - and are continually making improvements to it. Also, I am so glad that you tried the local fish - it really makes a difference as it is caught that morning. We hope to see you back at Water's Edge in the future. Mark & Lisa

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for the two of us. The breeze off the the ocean made you think it wasn't July. At times the water was breaking against the seawall and it was great. If you have a car 1) eat lunch at Blue Sail. Great food and view. Long drive so do it on Sunday. 2) Go to Cabbage Beach. There is a public access at the Paradise Island Beach Club. If you want you can rent beach chairs and eat at the beach bar. 3) Fresh Market (not the same as US) is in a shopping center between Eastern and Shirley less than ten minutes away. Much better selection and quality of meats. Also we rented our car from Joe and used him a couple of times at night to go downtown and to Atlantis. Great guy use him.

Owner's Response: Hi Guys - Thanks for the review and the recommendations. I have never been to Blue Sail but will definitely check it out next time. Good to hear that you loved the breeze off the ocean; it really helps to cool the patio down. As you could see, this is the colonial end of Nassau and where the folks used to live before A/C! Glad you enjoyed it - come back again sometime. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Breath taking view! Excellent accomodations and the property owners are teriffic!

  • 5 of 5

My family vacations together annually and this was our first trip to the Bahamas. This house offers the perfect setting for a relaxing vacation. The view from the house if unbelievable and the reef just off the balcony offered wonderful snorkeling. For those of my family (teenagers) who wanted the night life of Paradise Island, this property is located only a short 15 minute drive. Mark was very responsive to our questions and offered great advice for the best vacation. This house met all of our vacation needs and I highly recommend it!

Pictures do not do it justice...incredible!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spend a week at Waters Edge and it was an amazing family vacation. The house is very comfortable, well decorated and it makes you feel at home. We had a six month old and appreciated having a pack and play and a high chair. We really enjoyed the house and only left for a couple of times. It was just very relaxing seating outside, enjoying the incredible view, going for a swim in the sea or at the pool.

Mark was very helpful all through the process, he recommended Joe for transportation needs and it was a good recommendation. We used Joe’s services to-from airport and the times we went out, he was always on-time, professional and very friendly.

We hope to be able to repeat this in the future!!!

Thanks to all!

Owner's Response: Hi Keyra - Thanks for the great review and I am so glad that you loved the villa. The fresh water pool does making swimming in the sea more enjoyable as you can simply freshen up from the sea water by a quick dip in the pool. We only just got the pool completely resurfaced and so hope you enjoyed it. The Bahamas is always lovely and the villa allows for a relaxing vacation. We do hope that you can get back to Water's Edge sometime in the future. The villa will be waiting for you! Regards, Mark & Lisa

An excellent villa in a wonderful oceanfront location

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this villa. It is in a beautiful location, with the most amazing turquoise sea and great views. We were outside every day enjoying the views and keeping cool in the pool. Everything is very good quality and super clean. The villa has everything you need for a great stay, including a good dinghy and scuba gear. The kitchen has a good range of crockery and utensils and plenty of cooking pans. The air con was welcoming on the very hot nights and Mark, the owner, was great when one of the AC units stopped working, there was a replacement fitted within a day. It's great to have an owner that really cares about their guests and looks after them so well. The island is beautiful and we would recommend Love Beach on the north shore which is a large sandy beach, great for swimming and snorkelling and has a great little beach bar for drinks and snacks. This really is a little taste of paradise and we wish we were still there..!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and I am so glad that your stay was everything that you imagined. The sea outside the villa is truly spectacular - I have never experienced such clear waters anywhere. Also, the pool is always good to wash off the salty sea water. I'm sorry about the A/C but these things sometimes happen on the island. It was my pleasure to fix it quickly for you as I know that every day in "paradise" is special. We do try to help our guests as much as possible. We hope to see you back at Water's edge again sometime in the future. 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.
