About Paola Alvino
I am half Manx, half Italian, speak with a northern England accent, but feel mostly Bahamian, with a history here that started when I was 3 years old. It makes it hard to answer the question, "Where are you from?"! I feel that my heart is in the sun, sea and sand of The Bahamas - whether the hustle and bustle of the capital, Nassau, the quaint New-England style of Hope Town, or the raw beauty of the Exumas. But I also feel that Luogosano is my home (where everyone seems to be Alvino), as well as Douglas Head in the Isle of Man, where I was born. Wherever you are from, I promise that you'll feel right at home here in this gem of a house in the safe, gated community of Treasure Cove. We can't wait for you to experience it!
Paola Alvino purchased this House in 2016
Why Paola Alvino chose Nassau
We live a few steps away from Sunrise by the Sea across the street so are within easy reach if you need us. We have always loved the house and knew visitors to The Bahamas would love it too! It really is a hidden gem. There are no neighbours on either side and just one other house on the ocean side of the road about 200 metres away.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the house primarily because of it's location and the back patio! It's a great place to chat with friends, play guitar, sip wine, relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. There's a view of the sea from every room in the house and large windows to truly appreciate it.

Paradise on the beach
We really enjoyed our stay. It is close to downtown and all the fun! I would recommend going to Solomons grocery store close to the house, as apposed to Harbour Bay.. (it's pretty expensive) There is also a liquor store right down the street from the home and ice cream across the street at the entrance. We really enjoyed going down to Potters Cay under the bridge to Paradise Island. There are many stalls of authentic Bahamian food and we ate at Archie's and spoke to a nice man named Greg. It is a very private home on the beach and we did go swimming in the ocean at night and the water was awesome. Don't forget to bring your water shoes as it is a little rocky in the water. When going to the grocery store, no need to purchase bottled water, as there are water jugs in the home. If you want a quiet and relaxing time in the Bahamas, this is the place for you! 😃
Thank you so much for your review Dawn! We do actually have water shoes at the house by the way! Don't know if you saw them in the bag - 8 pairs :-) We're glad you guys had fun and hopefully next time you come we'll have more time to hang out :-)
This place was so beautiful. I was in awe everyday looking out the window. Absolutely stunning view. It was well stocked with dishes and a whole chest of water gear. The beach is a bit rocky, but it was no problem with water shoes. I have a 6 and 4 year old and they managed no problem. The booking process was easy and Paola was available for any questions we had. Highly recommend this place. Would book it again in a heartbeat!
Gorgeous home with stunning views
This place is the perfect little family getaway! Has everything you need to have fun in the sun right out your own back door. Kayaks, snorkeling gear, fishing rods, etc. We were perfectly content to run to the nearby grocery and hang out at the house! Paola is right across the road if you need anything. You really couldn't ask for better property management! Don't hesitate to rent this beautiful home!
Thank you Susan - it really was our pleasure to host you and your family! Make to come back again soon :-)
This home is just beautiful and so serene on this beach. The owners were attentive to any needs we had and were available if we needed anything. Highly recommend this vacation rental. You will not be disappointed.
Loved the property! Loved the view!
We had the greatest time at this property. The house is fully stocked. Everything worked appliances, AC etc.. Our host was grate very attentive. Beds were comfortable. House is very clean. The back porch is where we spent most of our time. Awesome view, fortunately we had constant breeze it was very soothing and kept mosquitoes away. We loved it and plan to come back again😊👍🏾
Thank you so much Lisa for your gracious comments. We very much appreciated your stay with us and would love to have you back again! Paola & John.
What An AMAZING Stay!!!!
First, I'd like to say that Paola and John are the most gracious of hosts! Especially Paola...we booked this house about 6 months ahead of time and I pestered Paola for all that time with a million questions and she was absolutely amazing about getting back to me promptly with LOTS of answers! Her manual was so helpful in getting a lay of the land and her directions to the house from the airport were SPOT ON. DO NOT deviate from them and don't use any other source (i.e...google, mapquest, etc.)...Paola's are perfect. Driving on the left was a bit of a challenge if you're used to driving on the right but we did master it. Paola and John live right across the street from the house which is great if you have any problems they are right there! They are both so accommodating and will help in making your stay a wonderful one!
The area where the house is is very quiet. There is a big grocery store and liquor store just a few miles away. We ended up bringing our own meat from home but the grocery store was very well stocked with everything and the prices weren't as high as I was expecting. The only place we really went was next door to Palm's Cay to have some drinks and lunch (which was delish!). We were just very happy to stay at the house and relax our days away!
The house itself is exactly like the pictures. Lots of room...very spacious and open and very clean. We used the King bedroom...the mattress was so comfy! The kitchen had everything we could possibly need. Plenty of towels...and every bathroom had soaps, lotion, shampoo, and conditioner! The AC worked beautifully and kept the house nice and cool as it was very hot when we were there.
But the best part was the outside. The views are absolutely stunning! The porch is so spacious and it's nice to have the overhang to get out of the sun. The beach area is a little rocky so I would suggest water shoes. We brought our own floaties and just floated around...the water was so warm. We snorkeled around the area and saw some cool stuff. This is really what we did all day long...it was SO relaxing!
All in all, do NOT hesitate to rent this lovely home. We love vacationing in the Bahamas and hope to be back someday soon!!
Rebecca, you and Rob were the most awesome of guests, an absolute pleasure to host! We would love to have you back any time! We (and the house) miss you :-)
Treasure Cove is a quiet residential community at the eastern end of New Providence with 24-hour security and a gated entrance. The beauty of this home is that it enjoys the security of a safe neighbourhood but the feel of being on a private island. You will feel like a true-true Bahamian.
Buses are few and far between at this end of the island, and it's about a 10-minute walk just to get out of the Treasure Cove community, so renting a car is a must. But if you like to walk, jog or swim you have a safe, tranquil neighbourhood and the ocean to choose from! The Palm Cay Marina and Beach Club is in the next community along on the Yamacraw Road - literally a five-minute drive away - with a restaurant, beach bar, yoga, live music and other entertainment.
