Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Truly a wonderful place to stay! Great location with easy access to the beach and local amenities, and everything was in order in the home. The house was very well set up for a family of four and it was very comfortable to have dinners there in the evening and enjoy quiet nights at the property. We strongly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for recommending our condo Seaside Treasure to future guests! We want our guests to feel very comfortable and at home while staying in our condo. All amenities are within a short walking distance like you said making it easy to grab groceries, rent a golf cart or bike, go to liquor store, out to eat , or just grab an ice cream from the bakery. The beach is directly across the street, 3 1/2 miles of pure white sand and turquoise blue water. Everything you need for a perfect vacation. Hope your family comes back to Treasure Cay again real soon! Thanks Cindy and Jay 🌴?🐠?☀️

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! First of all, the booking process was super easy, Cindy was so responsive to the constant questions and messages I sent to her before we arrived.

The condo has everything you need for your stay, all kitchen supplies, as well as condiments and spices for your meals, and plenty of regular towels and beach towels. It was just my boyfriend and I, but having two bathrooms was awesome!

The condo complex has a free washer and dryer (laundry room open monday-friday 8-4) and someone had left some laundry detergent so we were able to do some laundry mid week which was great if you want to pack light during your stay!

We decided to rent a car and I think that is a great option. It was $330 and we reserved it right at the airport when we landed and we had it from Friday-Friday so it was a reasonable price. The drive from Marsh Harbor to the condo is around 40 minutes so not bad. We stopped at a grocery store called Abaco grocery in Marsh harbor and stocked up on food for the week since we knew we would have a kitchen. Be aware, groceries are pretty expensive so if you can bring some food down with you in your suitcase you will save some money.

Treasure Cay is beautiful and what is great about this condo is it's across from the beach, so it's a quick walk to white sands and turquoise water. We also enjoyed eating outside on the back patio and looking at the marina docks with the beautiful ships every day.

We went to three different islands which was very fun. Sunday we took a boat from Treasure Cay Marina to Guana ($50 per person round trip) for the pig roast Sunday at Nippers bar which was super fun (note: there isn't an actual pig roasting, they serve a large buffet with pork options and the buffet was really good). Nippers is also on a beautiful beach so you can have a drink then walk down stairs and go for a swim or lay on the beach.

We also visited Turtle Cay (a 15 minute drive to the Ferry to take the boat there, and $30 per person,round trip) and Hope Town (a 35 minute drive to the Marsh Harbor Ferry $30 p/p r/t). This is why having a car was helpful.

Would HIGHLY recommend Florence's Cafe which is walking distance to the condo, had the most amazing banana bread, muffins, pancakes, etc. Also loved Bahama Beach Bar and Grill, food was great and prices were reasonable. Don't bother with Coco's on the beach, food is overpriced and service seemed mediocre. Overall had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Such an amazing review, thank you! Glad to hear you thought it was the perfect place to stay. Mariners Cove is a great complex, you get beat of both worlds Marina in front and beach in back. It was my pleasure answering all your questions and helping with Car Rentals etc. Renting a car is a great option if you plan on Island hoping without, chartering a boat, you can easily drive to ferry dock and take ferry over to all outer Islands . We want all guests travelling to Treasure Cay to make the most of their vacation so we like to share as much information as we can. The local Abaconian paper has a visitors guide on last page which is very helpful Car Rentals, ferry schedules, events and places to eat etc. Sounds like you made the most of your stay. So happy to hear you had an amazing time! Jay and Cindy

Loved It!!! Cindy & Jay are great

  • 5 of 5

Jay and Cindy were very helpful and responsive. The property was very clean, nicely decorated, well stocked with everything you would need.

It was a short walk to the most beautiful beach we have ever been on. The pure white sand and turquoise colored water was majestic. We rented bikes and checked out the area. We found a great place to watch the sunrise on Sunrise Point. You can also take several greenways to the beach where you’ll find more beautiful beaches.

We chartered a boat a couple of days. Getting out on the water is a must. There are so many activities to do on the water. You can go feed the swimming pigs, feed the stingrays and sharks, snorkel, island hopping plus so much more.

The Condo is located in Mariners Cove. There is a marina right out the back door. Restaurants, grocery store, liquor store, bakery, bike and golf cart rentals, boat rentals and charters all within walking distance.

The people in Treasure Cay are all very friendly. Everybody says hello, bikers and golf cart riders all wave to you.

Cindy arranged to have a driver pick us up at the airport. Our driver was very courteous. He actually stopped at a few places on our way to the condo so we could pick up supplies for the week.

You have to do pizza night on Thursdays at the Tipsy Seagull. It’s a 2 minute walk. Everybody comes from all over the island for pizza night. The pizza was surprisingly very good.

Thank you Jay and Cindy for opening up your home to us, we would highly recommend your condo when visiting Treasure Cay,

Rob and Debbie

Owner's Response: Rob and Debbie we would have responded sooner to your great review, but we were also just in Treasure Cay enjoying the beautiful beaches. Sounds like you both had a great time exploring Abaco and all it has to offer. Boating in Abaco is incredible, wether you charter a boat or rent your own.There's places to snorkel, island hoping, fishing or just sight seeing to piggiville or Manjack to feed sharks and Ray's. So much to do and see you definetly should come back and experience more. We look forward to having you both back to stay at our Island home Seaside Treasure! Thanks Cindy and Jay

Excellent property conveniently located to gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

This home was great for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids. We rented a golf cart, mostly because the kids were excited to drive it, but it wasn't necessary. It's a short walk to the beautiful Treasure Cay beach, restaurants, marina for excursions, grocery, bakery, liquor store. After landing we stopped in Marsh Harbour for groceries at Maxwell's, but we could have skipped that because i think the grocery in Treasure Cay was equivalent. Also before buying any condiments, coffee, etc, check the condo first. It was fully stocked when we arrived (at least 5 bottle of ketchup, a couple mustards, rice, coffee, mayo, soy sauce, cooking oil, dried spices, s&p, etc.) To say this condo was well stocked would be an understatement. It literally had it all--plush towels, sheets, sand toys, condiments, cookware, dishes, utensils, etc. There is a free laundry room and free filtered water (refundable key deposit required for both). Also free WIFI, but it did go out for hours at a time on several days, which also meant no TV as it is only Netflix. We were OK with that, though, since it was nice to be offline with toes in the sand. We also had a few short power outages that seemed unrelated to weather. Again, a minor inconvenience that didn't bother us much. The pool area and grounds were lovely and well kept. Our kids enjoyed that the pool had a deep end that was deep enough to dive into. The property manager was helpful and made a phone call for us, as our cell phones did not work there. The owners were helpful and responsive and answered questions quickly. They provided recommendations for boat excursions and a local taxi driver, who we did not use upon arrival because we rented a car for that leg, but who happened to drive by the unit while we were sitting outside and introduced himself, asked about us, and generally seemed to be keeping an eye on the condo for his friends. We did use him for our return trip to Marsh Harbour and he was reliable and friendly. Overall a very positive experience and we would recommend it.

Visit to Picture Perfect Paradise 7/23/17 through 7/30/17

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from Picture Perfect Paradise. It was a wonderful vacation/anniversary trip!!! The unit was clean and well furnished. We were very pleased with the friendliness of the staff as well. The owner was very helpful in providing a list of activities and suggestions for our stay. We rented a golf cart for the entire week and a car for two days. The only issue we had was the taxi driver Sidney Hart showing up an hour and a half early on the day we were to leave. We were eating breakfast and we had to rush to get our things packed. He also came the day before thinking it was the day we were leaving (even though I had written it down for him). Other than that, we had a wonderful time and I would recommend the condo to anyone. It was very close to the beach and places to eat.

Owner's Response: 🏝 Happy Anniversary! Treasure Cay is a perfect place to celebrate a anniversary! We are happy to hear you had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed staying in Mariners Cove at our condo Seaside Treasure. The taxi drivers do want to insure you get to the airport on time, flights are international and require you to arrive early. Sidney is great he likes to drop by the day prior to check in make sure he has the right flight and departure time. All of the staff are very friendly in Treasure Cay making a more memorable vacation. 🐠☀️🌴
