About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A private villa, nestled directly on the Sea of Abaco - here is the adventure you have been waiting for! Soak in the the pristine sands and crystal turquoise ocean! You will find our newly enlarged great room spacious and comfortable for listening to music from the xm radio, your ipod, or from our cd library. Step outside onto either of the three decks and let the cool ocean breeze take your cares away, or have a relaxing tropical drink under the cooling shade of the cabana. We have spotted dolphin and rays from the deck, as well as a night heron and other numerous birds. This unique spot nestled in the Casuarina pines for shade is literally 25-30 yards from feeling the cool water on your toes and the spray in your hair.

Our Villa is uniquely and comfortably furnished both indoors and out. All linens, towels, and kitchen ware is provided (including a bread machine, cuisinart coffee machine, and coffee bean grinder). It is air conditioned and also has ceiling fans in each room.

Located on the eastern side of Great Abaco Island, Treasure Cay is a quiet place to get away, and find adventure. The 3 1/2 mile horseshoe shaped beach that the Villa is located on was listed as One of the Top Ten Beaches in the World by National Geographic. Pick your adventure.....take a walk out the sandbar and find hoards of Sand dollars, Wade to Sunrise Cay (a tiny island off of the tip of Treasure Cay), Kayak in the emerald water, take an Island hopping trip to the out islands....or simply prop your feet up and pull out that book.

This is Abaco.

About Alisa Bigham

Hello, we are Brent & Alisa Bigham. We live in the mountains of Georgia, USA. We have three children. Emily, the oldest, lives with her husband & our first grandchild, Jane, in Chattanooga, TN. Our second child, Seth, lives in Chattanooga also. Our youngest son, Sam(13) is still at home with us. We bought the Villa in 2000 because since the early 80s when we first visited, we had been dreaming about owning a place for our family to gather and make memories. We hope you are able to reconnect & make adventures with your family & friends while you stay in beautiful Treasure Cay.

Alisa Bigham purchased this villa in 2000

Why Alisa Bigham chose North Abaco

We began visiting Abaco in the early 80's and simply fell in love. We always dreamed of owning our own property there, which became a reality in 2000. One our favorite Beach Villa came up for sale, directly on the beach. We bought it and have since enjoyed the get away of our dreams.

What makes this villa unique

We love the community of Treasure Cay; it still carries the traits of another time and age. Close community, quiet beaches, and friendly folk fill the Islands. You can also live a world of adventure: scuba diving, boating, sailing, exploring. Our property is directly on the beach; thus, sometimes the most needed adventure is simply a good book on the deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We straggled into Treasure Cay at 7:45 p.m.(in the dark) -after a long day of travel . We dragged ourselves around the corner to the villa and joyfully entered a Bahamian jewel.Airy,spacious,beautifully,tastefully and imaginatively decorated. The feel and and perspective is marvelous.The view of the unending white sand,the turquoise sea and the barrier islands is soul soothing.A great island,a great villa and a great holiday."

Just steps from villa to beach! What a great location!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 14, 2016

There is no question! This is truly a ‘beary’ special villa nestled amongst one of the prettiest stretch of beaches you could ask for. The beach was right in front of the villa! To boot, the residence was perfectly cleaned, well maintained and well stocked. All the appliances/electronics were late model and allowed for easy meal preparation coupled alongside some Netflix binge watching in the evenings. We really enjoyed the multiple outdoor decks to which you could track the sun for a good tan at any time of the day. The neighborhood is one of the most well-manicured areas we have ever seen in the Bahamas with all the essentials within a short walk, cart or bike ride. You really did not have to leave the area which was such a piece of mind when sinking into true relaxation mode. The marina was super close and we recommend the boat day trip. We saw stingray, shark, sea turtles and a pod of dolphins actually come in to the cay one day while we were busy being beach bums. A truly rare and special appearance! The nearby owners are friendly and really make you feel right at home. All in all, this WAS home! Great for families, don’t pass this one up!

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

As usual, the villa for our month long stay was welcoming, well-eqipped, and the location cannot be beat on the BEST beach on Treasure's 3.5 mile beach. I hate to leave and return to the "real world" as this is definitely Paradise - in large part due to this great villa!

Beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house in this beach development. The location is very near the beach and there are no other houses close by. The path to the beach is not use much by others at least not while we were there. Also close to the pool. Owners are very responsive and easy to work with.

Treasure cay area is very quite, at least it was during our stay, which was what we wanted. You can walk to everything you need.

Cozy beachfront

  • 5 of 5

First, the communication with Alisa, the owner, leading up to our vacation was always prompted. She answered all of my questions and had many suggestions and information pertaining to our stay in Treasure Cay. She even organized to stock up the kitchen with a grocery list I sent her in advance. The house itself, although a little dark, was bigger than expected and very cozy. It was well appointed with everything one would need. There was even some oil, vinegar and spices. The beds were extremely comfortable. My 10 year old son slept on the hide-a-bed in the living room for the entire stay and he loved it. We often used the outdoor grill and made amazing “home cooked meals” as local restaurants are limited and the food and service are not great.

The beach was incredible. There are always lounge chairs to be had. We did not use the pool but it’s right next to the villa. So convenient.

Overall, he had such a relaxing and wonderful family vacation. We will definitely come back for more!

The beach villa was the perfect fit for our family of 4!! The villa was very clean and comfortable and the close proximity to the pool and beach was absolutely perfect.
