A beach at your back door with the best view in Nassau - and a generator!
About Paola Alvino
I am half Manx, half Italian, speak with a northern England accent, but feel mostly Bahamian, with a history here that started when I was 3 years old. It makes it hard to answer the question, "Where are you from?"! I feel that my heart is in the sun, sea and sand of The Bahamas - whether the hustle and bustle of the capital, Nassau, the quaint New-England style of Hope Town, or the raw beauty of the Exumas. But I also feel that Luogosano is my home (where everyone seems to be Alvino), as well as Douglas Head in the Isle of Man, where I was born. Wherever you are from, I promise that you'll feel right at home here in this gem of a house in the safe, gated community of Treasure Cove. We can't wait for you to experience it!
Paola Alvino purchased this House in 2016
Why Paola Alvino chose Nassau
We live a few steps away from Sunrise by the Sea across the street so are within easy reach if you need us. We have always loved the house and knew visitors to The Bahamas would love it too! It really is a hidden gem. There are no neighbours on either side and just one other house on the ocean side of the road about 200 metres away.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the house primarily because of it's location and the back patio! It's a great place to chat with friends, play guitar, sip wine, relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. There's a view of the sea from every room in the house and large windows to truly appreciate it.

Nice house. As advertised. Beautiful view. Need a car. Everything in the house worked well. Some things are a little rundown but that is to be expected in a tropical location. Great host.
We had a wedding to attend in Nassau. Instead of taking the cruise, we decided to fly and rent. Everything that you need Or want to know is listed in the description accurately. We were prepared by renting a vehicle. We stocked up at Solomon’s Grocery store (we learned a day or two in that there are reusable bags at the house in the cupboard next to the water cooler as the store was out of them the week we were there).
The location of the house , The weather and the ocean in the “backyard” were perfect. Hanging out on the back patio was amazing, anytime the kids were eating or out of the water , we were sitting at the table out there. The views are unreal(especially coming straight from snowy NY). We barbecued twice and it worked great. Still hearing the waves waking us up .. still seeing the ocean instead of this snow. Looking out and seeing nothing but water. We woke up for every sunrise. The kids were in the water by 630 each morning, diving for treasure in the clear turquoise water. Mastered driving on the left. Caught every sunset. Saw a shooting star and made a wish. Found a conch in the ocean. Ate local food. First stamp in the kids passports...along with so many memories made! Warning : The rum is strong! (but good)
Paola was extremely helpful and accommodating with our questions and needs leading up to the stay and while we were there as well. So great to have met you Paola, thank you so much for the memorable vacation!
Looking for a wonderful getaway? This property is your answer.
Paola and John are exceptional hosts, easy to contact and very helpful with any questions or concerns.
The pictures of the house are perfect. The location is great, with sunrise and sunset views that are beautiful. The ocean is steps away and the availability of snorkel gear and kayaks was great.
We had everything we needed for a perfect vacation.
There is a also a supermarket right around the corner for groceries.
Downtown and New Providence island are also a short drive away.
We had a fantastic vacation and would definitely return in the future!
The views of the water are terrific and the convenience of the kayaks and other equipment was great. Also the kitchen is outfitted with everything you need to cook a meal. No need to leave the house!
The property was nice and the owners were quick to respond to issues as well as make sure we were happy. Mother Nature had a different plan and gave us colder and wetter weather then we expected but we made the best of it. We did not rent a car and instead lucked out with an amazing driver that by the end of the trip we considered part of our family. His name is Mark Moss and I highly recommend him should you not want to drive, he is a nice fleets of cars and SUVs. P2428095422.
Treasure Cove is a quiet residential community at the eastern end of New Providence with 24-hour security and a gated entrance. The beauty of this home is that it enjoys the security of a safe neighbourhood but the feel of being on a private island. You will feel like a true-true Bahamian.
Buses are few and far between at this end of the island, and it's about a 10-minute walk just to get out of the Treasure Cove community, so renting a car is a must. But if you like to walk, jog or swim you have a safe, tranquil neighbourhood and the ocean to choose from! The Palm Cay Marina and Beach Club is in the next community along on the Yamacraw Road - literally a five-minute drive away - with a restaurant, beach bar, yoga, live music and other entertainment.
