We would highly recommend Water's Edge for couples, families who are looking for a home filled with everything you want in a relaxing getaway.. The views are spectacular! The house is very clean and Joe the driver who was recommended was fantastic from pick up at the airport and anywhere we wanted to go... Best place I have rented on Homeaway and would stay again.... Thank you to Mark and your entire family... Cannot wait to return...❤️❤️

“Traditional Bahamian luxury in an incredible location”
Reviewed 18 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

Water's Edge is located at the eastern end of New Providence in a a very quiet area, perfect for relaxation but a short drive from the busier holiday attractions in downtown Nassau. It is a traditional Bahamian villa with many original features.

The photos give a good overall image of the property but the really seductive feature is the incredible terrace and pool overlooking the ocean. The weather in October was stunning and the sunrises and sunsets from the terrace were spectacular.

The whole property is luxurious, well appointed and in a very good condition.

The owner Mark was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking and holiday period. We had a great week at the Water's Edge and I would certainly return in the future.

“Dream holiday!”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

This traditional Bahamian house by the sea was amazing to stay at. The pool was great and in general we couldn't have asked for more. Any issues we had were dealt with as it was easy to get in touch with throughout.

The weather turned out great and we owe a lot to this house for our fab holiday. I can't wait to get back here.

“Fantastic!”

person found this review helpful

We just returned from the Water's Edge. It is just as pictured. It is the windy season so the ocean spray was coming over the edge to the house. The view is incredible.
We couldn't snorkel or go in the water due to the turbulence.
The house is very clean with large bedrooms. It is equipped with everything you could want.
The neighborhood is very safe and peaceful.
Mark is a stickler for communication. He returned emails quickly and once we booked send out emails as we got close. He has a website detailing all you need to know. The house manager Jonquil is also quick to return emails.
The house book he put together is very useful. The directions to Cable beach were perfect.
The wifi is very good.
A good time was had by all.

We are so glad that you guys enjoyed the house; especially as the outside weather did not cooperate on this occasion. The weather conditions certainly gives a different feel to living on the ocean ;-). Sometimes a weather front does come through but normally passes quickly. Still I'm glad that you had plenty to do in the house and, of course, Nassau is an exciting place. Hopefully you will manage to get back soon in the future to experience the snorkeling, sun and sand.

“Trancendent”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a privilege to stay on this property! My family has rented many vacation properties over the years, in many different places; we have made careful selections, and have had good experiences all the way around. This property easily transcended all of our other experiences. From our interactions with the owners to the actual reality of the rental, our expectations were universally surpassed.
Our family of six (including our four teenage daughters) spent a week at Water’s Edge. Brilliant sunrises, beautiful coral reefs, and fine sandy beaches are the norm here; it is the perfect place to unwind and rest, complete with a hammock. Even the ocean waters are calm and subdued.
The home is absolutely a grand dame, well-kept and classy. The kitchen is modern, and the bathrooms are well appointed. The home offers enough space for a family of six to spread out, find space, and read a good book. Pests are actively kept under control, and the surrounding neighborhood feels entirely safe.
Our four teens practically lived in the pool and ocean shallows. When the occasional squall rolled in, we broke out one of the many games available at the home and admired what Mother Nature was whipping up on the outside. Coming from the Pacific Northwest, we were thankful for the bedroom air conditioners (we did use them during the nighttime), and took advantage of the binoculars to keep track of the many boats that passed by.
We took advantage of the owner's recommended driver, Joe. Joe is a punctual, kind, well-spoken, and courteous Bahamian who quickly became our “go-to-guy” for all things Nassau.
We went out to eat a few times, shopped the Straw Market, and took a fabulous private boat tour with Bahama Boat Tours (Captain Carl). At the end of the week, we went to The Atlantis for a couple of days. The only thing we would have changed was our time at The Atlantis; we would have purchased day passes and stayed outside the resort. For us, the Bahamian people and culture are too hospitable to spend our time in a contained resort atmosphere.
Would we recommend this property to others? You might want to consider something different if you want a constant night-life party atmosphere or have very small children you don’t want to have to monitor carefully. For our family, however, this was the perfect opportunity to connect with the Bahamas. We have already recommended this home to others; we didn’t want to leave, and if we can, we will most certainly be back.

“Perfect Vacation”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We rented this house for a week's vacation in Nassau. We were two couples, each with an 8 month old baby. It was the perfect house for us for this trip. The house was exactly as advertised: beautiful, peaceful, relaxing and safe. We stocked up at the grocery store and liquor store and spent a good part of each day relaxing at the house and cooking meals, swimming, etc. We rented cars to explore the island and the house was an easy drive from beautiful beaches at Cable Beach and Paradise Island.

I would definitely recommend this house for a low key and relaxing trip to Nassau. We loved every minute of it!
