A Little Piece of Paradise
My husband and I had the good fortune of finding the listing for Trade Winds when researching a location for our 2013 winter vacation. Being seasoned travelers who have been throughout the Bahamas, we look for vacation opportunities where there is a great beach, reasonable accommodations and as far from the tourist traps as possible. Trade Winds met all of our requirements and more. Located in beautiful Casuarina Point, Trade Winds is conveniently located about 20 minutes south of Marsh Harbour. Rent a car, buy some groceries, pick up some liquid refreshment and you'll be all set to begin your vacation in paradise. For those who are not aware Casuarina Point has calm waters and an endless beach perfect for walking, shelling and viewing aquatic life. If that is not enough, Casuarina Point is also a world reknown bone fishing destination. Trade Winds is a perfect a complement to this beautiful location. Alan Watt, the owner, has ensured that Trade Winds provides its guests with a nicely appointed, new 3 bedroom home on a quiet road with virtually every amenity needed. It also has a private back yard with porches off the master bedroom and utility room, lawn chairs, etc. Mr. Watt is an attentive owner and just plain nice guy who wants to ensure that his guests have a wonderful vacation as does Trade Wind's caretakers. So if you are looking for a little piece of paradise off the beaten path, it can be yours at Trade Winds.

Very Nice Villa.
Very Nice Villa.
Let me start by saying, the villa was Large, Clean and in great condition. Judy the caretaker was a sweetheart. The beach at Casurina Point was very nice as well, especially if you have young children, at low tide you can walk all the way to the next cay. Very relaxing and hardly anyone on the beach. Allan the owner responded to my questions promptly and professional. Now, some of the things that do need attention fast: Pots and pans are shot, these need to be replace yesterday, tv is too small, I have a computer bigger than that, and believe me once the light go out you'll need the tv because there is nothing else to do on the island. The cable selection is very poor, just a few chanels, no AMC for those who watch the walking dead, no hbo, show, no cnbc, I believe a better cable subscription is in order for your guests. Directions were not that great, the building where you make the turn is white not blue, the highway name is Ernest Dean not Abacos, maybe Abacos is what is known to locals, but the name on the highway says Ernest Dean, we of course got lost. In any case. I believe if these changes are made your stay will be wonderful. The town of marsh harbour is beautiful and plenty of restaurants to eat, Treasure Cay beach is gorgeous as well, do not go to Sandy point, our experience was not the best nor was the restaurant the locals say to go which is Nancy's, it was a dump. The people on the island are friendly and we felt pretty safe exploring the island. Would I come back to abacos, Not likely.

Owner response: Dear guest, thank you for your review of our nearly new house. It was good to hear that you found the house very clean and large and that our caretaker looked after you. The beach as you said is very safe and perfect for the young and the old and so quiet. I am pleased that all my responses were prompt and professional. I was surprised to hear that the pots and pans were not in good order during your visit as neither the previous guests or our cleaner had mentioned this, so I have taken the precaution of replacing them. I am also sorry to hear that the Bahamian way of life was not for you. Most of our guests love the peace and tranquillity of Abaco and return every few months for a short break or once a year for their main holiday. Abaco is the perfect place for sailing, fishing and relaxing on its empty beaches, you cannot blame the people of Abaco because you “had nothing to do” you should have researched your vacation properly.

Trade Winds villa is the perfect destination for a stress free holiday. The villa is exactly like the pictures and description on the web page, clean, spacious, modern with everything you require for a great holiday. Marsh Harbour is only 25 mins or so away by car and you can get everything you might need there, Maxwells is a big well stocked supermarket with plenty fresh food to suit all tastes. Alan is absolutely wonderful to deal with, so helpful and friendly, he answers any question quickly with great local knowledge and amazing enthusiasm for Abaco. The island itself is very beautiful and deserves to be explored, some of the beaches are incredible and almost deserted, I spent 8 hours one day at Bahama Palm Shores, swimming and walking the beach, and saw one person and 3 dogs!!. The people that you do meet are invariably friendly and very helpful, I spent two weeks on Abaco by myself and all of the local folk I encountered were very open with great suggestions on what to do or where to go, or, just as happy to pass the time with you. All in all Abaco and Trade Winds villa are the closest thing to paradise you can imagine and I certainly hope to return.

Owner response: We are so pleased that your vacation to "Trade-Winds" was the perfect holiday for you. It's great to hear that other people find the Abacos a friendly and beautiful place to stay. Casuarina beach is so quiet it's like your own private beach.Best wishes Alan & Marion
Excellent accomodation, well equipped & appointed

This property was a real home away from home. Careful thought and attention had been given to the accommodation and its equipment. The property was immaculate and well maintained. The local caretaker was available, but not intrusive, and extremely helpful. Excellent customer service from Alan when making travel arrangements. He was very helpful regards tourist information and maintained contact during our holiday. I would certainly recommend this property and location for anyone wishing for a quiet, relaxing holiday. However if lively, noisy over commercialised resorts are your thing this will not suit! Treasure Cay is an absolute must - beautiful beaches and sea!!!

Owner response: We are so pleased that you loved Casuarina Point and made our villa your home from home. We hope the kids had fun cycling and kayaking around Casuarina. It is the perfect place to let the kids run free.Alan & Marion
My husband and I spent one week at Trade-Winds in may. The house is huge, very well furnished. There is everything you need for cooking. There is also all you need to cary on your pic-nix. The garden is very nice for eating outside. We enjoyed a lot staying at this place. The beach at casuarina point is gorgeous, white sand, clear blue water and very few people so we did call it a "private beach". The owner of the villa is really kind and answers very quickly to our requests. The local caretakers are very friendly. We highly recommend the villa !

Owner response: Dear Marie, thank you for your kind words.We are so pleased that you and your husband found our villa and Casuarina Point so beautiful and quiet.It is a little piece of paradise that we all should experience from time to time. Please hurry back soon. Alan & Marion
Paradise definitely found.
Paradise definitely found.
A lovely home in a very special corner of this world. We found the home quite easily, thanks to Alan's perfect directions (he is an absolute joy to correspond with; very prompt and informative replies). The home is new and very spacious...and clean. There is a nice sitting area in the back, and a grill, kayaks, etc. We didn't use the A/C, as the fans and open windows made for perfect sleeping conditions (plus, at this time of year, the heat isn't too intense). Steps away is the most incredibly beautiful white crescent-shaped beach featuring crystal clear blue water. At low tide, you can walk out onto the exposed sand bar, which extends almost endlessly. A gorgeous place for sundowners. As said, the home is very clean, and comfortable. The WIFI was a nice bonus (to look at tides, keep in touch). Easy access to Marsh Harbour along the "highway". Overall, a perfect stay--we are already dreaming of our return!

Owner response: Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you had a great time in Abaco and that you enjoyed your stay at our villa.It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and you will be most welcome at our villa anytime.
We had a wonderful and relaxing time at Casuarina Point. The villa was very quiet, spacious, clean, totally new and comfortable. Everything in the house worked great, the airconditioning was modern and silent. The location of the villa is very private, the back garden is secluded with no properties looking into it and is surrounded by pine trees on all three sides. The beach Casuarina Point is gorgeous and quiet and just a 2 min walk from the villa. The owner of the villa is very friendly and helpful and quickly answered all my e-mails and lots of questions. The local caretaker and all the people in Abaco are also all soooooo friendly and helpful. Abaco is really a great place to stay, there are so many beautiful, long beaches for nice beach walks, it´s very peaceful, safe and in Marsh Harbour there is a huge Supermarket where you get everything. We can recommend the villa to all, who are looking for a new, clean, comfortable, peaceful and affordable place to stay with a close beautiful, quiet beach.

Owner response: Thank you Patricia and Siegfried for your kind review . We are so glad you were able to stay at our "villa" and enjoy the bahamian way of life on Abaco. You know the "welcome sign" is out whenever you need some time away from it all. Marion and I look forward to hearing from you soon .
We had a fantastic honeymoon at our destination of Causarina Point. The weather was absolutely perfect, at a comfortable 30 degree C every day. The beach is like paradise, with clean clear water and a beautiful long sandy beach. The house is brand new, clean, spacious and a perfect setting for a family or a couple. The local caretaker for the villa, Rex, is very kind, friendly and helpful and was happy to assist with anything. The local town, Marsh Harbour, is about a half hour drive away, where there is a huge supermarket, shops, and plenty of places to eat out. We would highly recommend this location and villa and sure you will enjoy your stay as much as us, it really is paradise.

About the owner: Hi my name is Alan and I live with my wife Marion and our two teenage children about 25 miles south of Edinburgh in Scotland , UK. I work as a paramedic and our two children are in full time education.
Why the Owner Chose Casuarina Point:
We went to Casuarina Point on holiday and fell in love with the place instantly. We decided to buy a plot of land and build our dream holiday home .The plot we purchased is only 200 feet from the beach. The garden is very secluded and we have open views over the cannal at the front.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The villa is only 200 feet from the crystal clear waters and the pure white sandy beach at Casuarina Point. The sailing, snorkeling and the bone fishing is out of this world. The villa has all the comforts of a modern home and the furniture is designed to help you relax on your vacation.
