World Class Property & Owner

  • 5 of 5

Usually not the type to write reviews, but compelled to do so for this Owner & Property. We are seasoned renters of Luxury and 5* properties. Villa Tatutina is in a class of its own. Online photos do not come close to what the Villa and grounds actually are. From the level of thought in designing the amazing property, detail, workmanship, quality of furnishings, professional layout and landscaping, to the amenities and location, all amazing. Bren the Owner is a class act and was genuinely a joy to engage with. Helpful, kind and resourceful beyond expectation and explanation. Willy, the Manager, our "go to guy" was so helpful throughout our two week stay. Our family all left feeling like we made new friends. Too many examples to share, but both Bren & Willy came through in so many ways from transportation, on-site assistance, recommendations for island hopping, boat rentals, deep sea fishing, etc. Each Villa is so amazing, offering our entire family privacy and "alone time" in high quality accommodations. Outdoor kitchen by pool and water simply spectacular with ice maker, fridge, Viking grill, overhead exhaust, dishwasher and music! So many areas for relaxing you have to see it to believe it, words just can't describe it. If you are boaters, the Villa is also set up from small crafts to very large with the Villa having its own docks and full service stations. Getting to and from airport super easy, 10 minute taxi and about $25 for full size van. Marsh Harbour area marinas, restaurants/bars super casual, good food, great drinks and about a 15 minute walk from Villa or not even a 5 minute drive. We used A&P car rental and had a van delivered to the Villa with Bren's assistance. Way to go once you get to understand the airports restrictions and rental agencies locations. Made a trip out to Treasure Cay area, beachside Coco Beach Bar & Grill has great set up. Good food and drinks. Investigate online for beach as they charge nominal fees for chairs and thatched covered tables. Definitely rent a boat (Blue Wave was our choice but know the fuel is $5 a gal and oil $65/gal) and do some Cay exploring. No Name Cay with the pigs running around was crazy fun. Abacos is so laid back. Never been prior, but would absolutely return. When that happens, we will be at no other place but Villa Tatutina. Amazing. Thanks Bren!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Dave and Karen for this excellent review. We appreciate what totally "awesome" guests you and family were. You respected the villa as if it were your home and took such care to leave it as you found it. We are grateful for guests like you. We are blessed to have many wonderful guests throughout the year, but you and family left as friends.....and that's great! Thanks as well for your appreciation of the detail that's gone into making Villa Tatutina a 5 star property. We are always happy to offer this level property and service to our guests and overjoy when they recognize it's something special... Please accept a "rousing" thank you from the Villa Tatutina staff and myself. We couldn't have enjoyed your being with us more. Please come back soon..... My best, Bren

Our wedding would not have been possible without Bren and Tatutina

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to the Abacos for a very long time. I never even considered having our wedding anywhere else.

When looking at places for the main family to stay, we found Villa Tatutina. The ability to come together when we wanted in the main house, pool, or dock but also importantly tuck away to our own privacy when needed, could not have been more perfect.

Our request of Bren was above and beyond normal guests for the week- we asked if we could throw our rehearsal dinner there as well. She was more than helpful and made sure everything was PERFECT at all times. Throughout the week, there was nothing that she didn't have ready with a smile.

I honestly can't say enough nice things after spending over a week there. Thank you, Bren. We couldn't have pulled it off without you.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had two families staying at Villa Tatutina for a wedding along with numerous friends staying close by for 10 days and it could not have been a nicer experience. Bren and Willy were more than accommodating of our every need. We had the rehearsal dinner for 80 guests by the pool and it was truly magical.

As a boating group, we had rental boats from Blue Water and traveled to multiple adjacent islands enjoying the entire Bahamas experience.

Thank you Bren for your assistance when needed during our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Wayne. It was such a pleasure hosting these two families for such a special event. Villa Tatutina is the perfect property for larger events and families who want to stay together, but also have private space when its time to rest for the next celebration. Everyone I spoke with loved your choices and destination for the wedding events. The rehearsal dinner was truly a spectacular event in every way. Your guests could not have enjoyed it more. Thanks for inviting us to share in this special time in your life. I wish the newly weds many years of happiness and look forward to all of your return to Villa Tatutina in the near future.

Fantastic way to bring in 2017

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 8 to Villa Tatutina the day after Christmas for one of the most fun weeks we have spent anywhere. The Villa is amazingly beautiful both inside and out. Nothing is left out. The landscaping is absolutely top notch and the layout and interior spaces are beautiful and immaculate. We took our boat and the dock was first rate as well. Marsh Harbour provides a great view of life in the Bahamas without a feeling of over commercialization. The owner was there, but totally unobtrusive. In fact we had to encourage her to spend time with us. She provided terrific insights into the island and surrounding areas for us to explore and enjoy. We can't wait to go back!

30th Anniversary Party

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure where to start with how much we enjoyed our stay at this house. This property is amazing to say it mildly.... We went with three other couples for our 30th Anniversary. Bren (owner) was there when we where and she checked on us through out the day to make sure we have everything we needed. She was so knowledgeable about The Bahamas and things to do. You will not be disappointed with this property.....

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Cindy. I could not have enjoyed your group more. I've always loved the folks of TN and you and your friends brought back great memories of how totally special Tennesseans are. I look forward to seeing you all again on another momentous event in your life. I wish you many many more Happy Anniversaries Bren

Amazing Property and Service

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 family's stay for 2 weeks. (18) The Owner( Bren) made herself available to us coming in, ( some by boat, some by plane), which is unheard of in the rental industry. What an elegant lady and so much knowledge to help our group with various activities. The grounds and facilities were excellent and every request was met with a smile and desire to go beyond our wishes. Bren's caretaker Willie was the nicest guy. Always pop'ed in when we had any little request. The kids loved the pool, crossing over to the over side to snorkel the reef's and the dock and boat house where gathering spots for evening drinks and some night time fishing. (even caught a tarpon off the back of the boat!) The layout of the property couldn't be better, with outdoor grilling, covered socializing area's and upscale kitchen's in several building's. And Stock'ed to the brim with every cooking pot, pan's, dishes, and utensil's. the Villa has everything you need for your vacation.

I've been to most islands and stayed in some good and some not so good locations. This is by far the best location I've booked in my 20+years of coming to the Islands. For family and friends its unbeatable. Villa TaTuTina gets 5 gold stars from us!!!
