Have a unique experience at Water's Edge.... Come on down and enjoy our special oceanfront Villa and brand new private fresh water pool. (www.bahamasrentalwatersedge.com)

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. We even have our own Margaritaville Navigator drinks maker.

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.

We can also offer catering (meals and chef services) and message services.

What makes Water's Edge the ultimate rental? We provide Cable TV, Boom Box, IPad/IPhone player, free WIFI broadband throughout the house and property for those visitors who may need to stay connected while in Paradise. A dinghy and snorkelling equipment are provided for your enjoyment. We also provide a phone that gives you the option of local calls to make reservations and inquiries at no charge. Enjoy the privacy of the 'non-tourist' area with easy access to exploring the rest of what Nassau has to offer. We also have optional daily housekeeping (additional costs apply). Additional nights are priced at $600 per night.

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

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.

We can also offer catering (meals and chef services) and message services.

Immaculately maintained. Amazing amenities. Friendly service and an outstanding location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. One of the best vacations we have had as a family. Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, this house gave us exactly what we needed to unplug, connect with each other, reflect on our experiences and have loads of fun. The view from the patio is unparalleled.

Owner's Response: Thanks guys for the brill review! We are so glad that you found everything in the villa as it should be. The view over the ocean is spectacular - it is actually what made us fall in love with the villa and Nassau when we bought the house. I know that you had the chance to get up early and see the fantastic sunrise in the morning. We are always here - please come back and visit again sometime. Regards, Mark & Lisa

What Vacation is Supposed to be!

  • 5 of 5

Mark thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your home and enjoy such an amazing experience! You really did have everything down to the last detail which allowed us to relax even more than we had hoped. Marsha greeted us and familiarized us with the house. (She also helped us get a few things throughout our stay so we wouldn't need to leave.) Joe was also great every time we called and needed a ride somewhere! I have stayed at many HomeAway locations and this was one of the best for sure. The house came fully stocked with more than everything we needed for cooking and cleaning. Plenty of silverware, pots and pans, and even spices! It was clean with plenty of bath towels and linens. We had a few friends in town, so we invited them over and they enjoyed it so much they decided to stay with us for a night! The pool and back patio really make this gem exceptional. We boated in the dingy, fished, swam, drank, barbecued and really enjoyed the property as if it were our own. The grocery store wasn't that far away and we even saw a Dairy Queen and Marcos Pizza not far from he house! We will be back for sure and we certainly have already recommended it to several of our friends. Thank you again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and I'm so glad that you enjoyed the villa. We try very hard to keep the standards for the house as high as possible. The ocean, islands and sun takes care of itself....but we have the responsibility to keep the villa to the same high level ;-) I hope you will be able to come back and enjoy Nassau and The Bahamas again in the future. Regards, Mark & Lisa

Even better than expected!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Two words, simply wonderful! We spent a week at Water's Edge and my kids are already begging to go again! Everything about this property is as stated and better. The location is perfect being right on the water with the most spectacular views and is plenty roomy and comfortable. While there, I took 417 pictures. You will never see more beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The villa was clean and very well maintained and was just like home. The kitchen was well stocked and we used it every day. Be warned, grocery prices are very high in Nassau but if you plan right I think it is still cheaper to dine at home. We ate dinner most every night on the patio and had very little "bug" issues. The pool was a little bit of a surprise in that it must be saline treated as it is salty, but that did not hamper our use! It was so refreshing on the hot days. I cannot say enough about how nice it is to be able to snorkel right off your patio! We went twice a day most days and saw stingray and a multitude of fish and coral. The waters are calm and WARM! Marsha was so accommodating as when we arrived my daughter had gotten travel sick and she was so nice as to grant us access a bit early to the home. She also made sure that we had all we needed and gave us great recommendations. Then there is Joe .... he is AMAZING! If you stay at Water's Edge, plan to use his services as he is a wealth of knowledge and as accommodating as they come! He gave us a stupendous tour of the city and dined with us at lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him. Town is a short drive in but yet far enough away that you are not in the middle of the cruise ship hub. While there, we celebrated both my daughter's and husband's birthdays and upon Marsha's recommendation we had Chef Everton Smith treat us to 5 course dinner that he crafted at the home. It was so enjoyable and delicious! If we travel to Nassau again we would not even think twice about staying at Water's Edge, it would be a MUST! Thank you Mark and Lisa for sharing your home away from home with us as we enjoyed it immensely!

Owner's Response: Wow, what a tremendous vacation you had! I am so happy that all was perfect at the villa. If you have lots of pictures please send them to me and I can post some on our Facebook page. The pool is actually fresh water but the salt sometimes splashes in from the ocean so it may have seemed a little salty. Thanks for the commendations of the team - they have been with us for years and we value them greatly. Please come back to Water's Edge again in the future. Regards, Mark & Lisa

What a place! Scenery, amenities, luxury, and more scenery!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us recently stayed here and enjoyed every minute of it. Plenty of room in the house, and outside the house. With the pool, hammock, ocean/beach, dinghy, games, margarita-maker, a couple puzzles we brought with us, etc...there was no shortage of things to keep us all having fun and staying relaxed. The location was great for us, within a few miles of everything, but far enough that is was always quiet and calm. Cant' say enough about this place, or the owners and staff who were all immediately responsive to anything we needed. It's a definite must-experience to see for yourself!

Owner's Response: What a fab review and we are so glad that you had the experience of a lifetime. The Bahamas is really an idyllic place and the villa at Water's Edge is a tremendous way to experience it. I love your comment about be close enough o downtown to have fun but tranquil enough to feel secluded - that is exactly how we felt when we lived there. Hopefully you guys will come back again in the future. Regards, 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.

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.
