We had a wonderful time at the Watersedge home! The home was spacious, well equipped, with spectacular views of the ocean. We filled our days with grilling, swimming, snorkeling and fishing. Entertaining everyone was no easy feat as we had four generations, ranging in age from 1 to 83. Everyone had the trip of a lifetime. Do note, the house itself is very far from all services and amenities and relying on Joe is a good idea. After a day or two we decided to rent a car and that made the trip MUCH easier.

The Waters Edge is a beautiful property outfitted with everything you need for a wonderful stay. Mark, the owner, was very responsive even before we left. Marsha, the property manager, was warm, welcoming and helpful. She didn’t even balk when we messed up and told her the lights weren’t working but it was just that the lamp wasn’t plugged in! Joe, the recommended driver was reliable and friendly and made it easy to get around. We can’t say enough about how great it was. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back!

Thank you Mark for providing such a beautiful home for use to stay during our Bahamas vacation. All the conveniences of a fully equipped kitchen and comforts of living area made this such a unique experience. On top of that, of course, you have the beautiful patio area with a nice size pool, access to your “backyard” ocean, and plenty of lounge chairs to sit back and enjoy! Our trip was the end of May and the Bahamas was a Level 3 for COVID. It was a comfort to not be staying at a resort where we may have been exposed.
A couple of suggestions to help those planning a trip:
- You’ll definitely want to stop for groceries and liquor on your way to the house. If you plan on barbecuing, you should purchase charcoal and lighter fluid. You should also purchase laundry detergent if you plan to wash your cloths, paper towel and toilet paper.
- Joe did pick us up one day to go the beach and when he’s not available, he will send another driver. We also met another great driver, Elliott Demeritte. Such a nice guy and knowledgeable of the area.
- We did have the Elnicka come to the house to administer our COVID tests for the return trip. Another comfort to be able to get this done in the home. Results came back in less than 2 hours and we were all negative!
I would definitely consider coming back to Waters Edge for a future vacation!

A group of 6 of us from Ohio stayed at Water's Edge in May of 2022. It was an incredible house, and an incredible vacation. The best part of the house was the view. The pictures (although great) don't even showcase how amazing the view and space really is. You could sit out there all week and be content. The pool is awesome. Not too cold to use either. I think the freshwater pool has turned into saltwater over time, but that's no problem. We used the charcoal grill outdoor to cook fish we caught on a charter.
The house also provides an ample supply of snorkel gear, water shoes, life jackets, and a dinghy that we used a lot to go out in the water. The waves were calm enough most days for us to take the boat pretty far out. Since the water was calm, we were also able to snorkel in the crystal clear water with visibility all the way to the bottom in pretty deep water. We saw all kinds of fish, sting rays, sea turtles, huge conch shells, even an eel!
The inside of the house was very clean. My wife has high standards of cleanliness and Water's Edge passed the test with flying colors. Marsha was very nice and does great work with the maintenance. Her intro to us at check in was quick, and wished she spent a few more minutes explaining some of the nuances of the house, but we eventually figured it out.
As for activities on the island, there is plenty to do. We took a fishing charter and loved it. Caught a bunch of small fish and two good sized tuna. Great eating fish! We also saw a bunch of turtles and dolphins. We also went on the Sandy Toes swimming with the pigs adventure, which was a blast. Highly recommend. One day we went to Jaws beach and walked around the Clifton Heritage Park. We stopped at a local bar there and had a great time. We also went to Atlantis for a day, which was fun. You could easily spend a couple days there and have plenty to do. It was a cool place to see.
One thing I would recommend is renting a car. We decided last minute to do that and I'm really glad we did. We probably put 300 miles on that thing exploring the island. I thought it would be difficult to drive on the left side of the road, but I got used to it pretty quickly. Plus we went to 4-5 restaurants, and this made travel easy. Recommend Compass Point and Oh Andros as our top 2 for the week. Seeing the Fish Fry is a must.
Overall, this place is just perfect. Very thankful for the opportunity to stay here and would highly recommend!
