These include doorknobs, table surfaces, Hard dining chairs (seat, back, and arms), kitchen counters, bathroom counters, faucets and knobs, toilets (seat and handle), light switches, TV remote controls, and game controllers. OUTDOOR BEAUTY Water's Edge is an exclusive private villa with 130 feet of oceanfront and all the modern amenities to make it your home away from home. This 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 freshwater pool with soothing fountain. Step directly into the crystal clear ocean through the back gate for a swim, or row our dinghy out a few hundred feet to snorkel the many surrounding reefs. If the ocean is not for you, you can relax in our freshwater pool offering spectacular views of the ocean. Spend your 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. ALL MOD CONS Brew a cup of coffee in the modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Count the sailboats on the ocean from the expansive shower in the new master bathroom. The house includes 4 bedrooms, all with queen beds, and can sleep up to 8 people. All the beds have been recently renewed with new mattresses and memory foam pads. Plenty of towels (beach and regular) are available. If you choose to eat dinner inside you can dine under the chandelier in our dining room (perhaps making use of our private chef) and enjoy the view of the tropical front patio (also the perfect place for your morning coffee) with local flora and fauna. You can also make use of the relaxing sunroom overlooking the ocean that includes a cozy reading area and casual dining section. From the cathedral-ceilinged central living space, you can open the french doors leading to the ocean patio and enjoy the cool eastern breezes. What makes Water's Edge the ultimate rental? We provide Cable TV, waterproof Bluetooth speaker, and fast, reliable, free WIFI throughout the house for those guests who may need to stay connected while in paradise. A dinghy and snorkeling equipment are provided for your enjoyment. We also provide a free local phone to make reservations and inquiries. Enjoy the privacy of the 'non-tourist area with easy access to exploring the best of what Nassau has to offer. For extra luxury, you can choose optional daily housekeeping, catering and private chef services, and in-home massage and nail (mani/pedi) services. Additional costs apply. OTHER SERVICES I can recommend Joe, our taxi driver, for all group transport requirements. It is a short 10-12 minutes drive to the Atlantis Resort, but we believe that once you set foot in Water's Edge you won't feel the need to go anywhere else. More

Just returned home from a wonderful family week at the villa just as the COVID-19 mess started!!! The owner was in touch with us during that time wishing us well and offered us another week there at a large discount if the flights were cancelled. The house was very nice and well cared for with all the amenities you need. It felt like home (we wish) which is why we spent the majority of our time at the house enjoying the ocean and the pool and only went out once for a day of fishing and snorkeling. The villa is away from the hussel and bussel of downtown with all the tourists - a perfect location. Marsha welcomed us upon arrival with a spic and span house and responded immediately to any of our questions, making sure that all went well during our stay. Joe was our driver and was always available for us even at the last minute when we decided to go to the store. He told us a lot of interesting things about the island and the people. My 4 year old grandson was especially fond of him!! I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants a nice and relaxing vacation in a beautiful home rather than a stuffy over crowded hotel room or resort!! We hope to visit again next year.

We had a great week. The villa is magical with an incredible view of the Bahamian sea and a domain that inspires calm and relaxation. We highly recommend Water’s Edge if you want to make souvenirs that will stay with you for a lifetime.

This amazing vacation villa is just as beautiful as the pictures show. You will enjoy complete privacy on the waterfront, with a beautiful pool as well. The interior of the home is clean, well appointed and spacious. The homeowners were attentive to our needs throughout the booking process and during our stay. We would definitely come back!

I knew we made the right decision from the time we booked the villa – Mark was VERY attentive from the very beginning, he was warm, detailed orientated and very responsive! Our family of four had a fantastic time at the villa during our stay. The villa is well taken care of and the view is simply the BEST. The villa has 4 bedrooms but we only used 2, there’s a lot of room to roam around even you have a large group. We spent most of the time in the pool during the day, in the evenings we retreated ourselves to board games and watched classic movies (Mark has an impressive selection of DVDs). We loved the quietness and away from the hustle bustle. We plan to be back~

Immaculate home right on the ocean. Relaxing by the pool with a cool drink in the evenings, to the sound of the waves, it doesn't get any better than this. The owners were fantastic and helped us plan a vacation that we will remember for ever. Just a short drive to Paradise Island or downtown Nassau if you can bring yourself to leave this beautiful house. We highly recommend the unforgettable Waters Edge and can't wait to return.

Once again we enjoyed our stay at Water’s Edge !!!! The view and brilliant color of the water were both spectacular. The location is perfect, easy to get to Nassau and the city sights, but far enough away from the crowds and congestion. We rented a car from “Joe”, who made the transaction so easy and provided all the guidance we needed to get around and explore the island.....Jaws Beach, Baha Mar, Paradise Island, Cabbage Beach, etc. It is clear the owners take great pride in their home and could not have been more responsive to all of our communications (and questions) even when we needed a special restaurant recommendation. Basically, we just love this home, it has everything we need for a relaxing enjoyable vacation: beach & snorkel gear, towels, cooler, umbrellas, hats, etc. Did I mention the frozen cocktail machine ??? The one which we used daily in order to make our poolside pina coladas !!!! (It's 5 o'clock somewhere) The kitchen was well appointed allowing for easy prep of meals or we grilled down by the pool, where we ate surrounded by the ocean views and constant sound of the waves crashing on the wall. So relaxing. We wanted to let you know we appreciated the new kitchen appliances and remodeled second floor bedroom & bath...they were such wonderful surprises. You did such a nice job designing and retaining the comfortable relaxed beach style displayed in the rest of the home. We certainly would recommend this beautiful home to others and are already looking forward to returning soon. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation – Waters Edge is AWESOME !

This was my second stay at Water's Edge, and it was just as fabulous as the first time. The sunrises are amazing, and the entire house is perfect for relaxation. I can't recommend this incredible place more.

This was our second time here and it was amazing. Chef E was fabulous and the setting was incredible. I got in some scuba diving this time and got a lot of creative time to write and paint and visit with friends. Can't recommend it enough!

About the neighbourhood
The house with a private pool 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. It is a short 5-10 minute drive to downtown Nassau, local restaurants, and Paradise Island and Atlantis. The ocean is down the back steps but there is also a beach within swimming and one within walking distance of the house. There is a local grocery store within a 15-minute walking distance as well.
Getting around
Downtown is a very walkable area to visit the sights and shop. For transport/taxi for the whole group, I recommend our taxi guy, Joe. He has worked with us for years and is knowledgable, economic and reliable. Taxi fares are based on distance and there are flat fees from place to place. They are rarely metered. Taxis can be found outside most hotels, the British Colonial Hotel, opposite McDonald's, is the best place to catch a taxi downtown. Remember to ask how much the journey will be in advance.
