It's Better In The Bahamas

Find Your Island Home At Abaco Club On Winding Bay

Williamson County residents have an affinity for second homes. The affluent county is home to many individuals who seek to invest in vacation properties and second homes. And the allure of owning a beachfront or beach-access property has proven irresistible to many who value a coastal lifestyle. While some Williamson County residents opt for destinations closer to home, such as the 30A area of Florida, others are venturing farther afield to find their perfect getaway. Specifically, they're venturing to the Abaco Club on Winding Bay. 

Tucked between gently swaying palms and azure waters on Great Abaco Island, Abaco Club by Southworth Development is an extraordinary private paradise. In this soul-enriching, 500-acre sanctuary of astounding natural beauty, families unwind in organic luxury at island-inspired homes, golfers swing away on the No. 1 course in The Bahamas, anglers pursue trophy bonefish and deep-sea marlin in world-renowned waters, members gather for sociable fun and imaginative cuisine, and people of all ages relax and play on powder-soft, white sands along one of the most beautiful beaches on Earth.

Sound heavenly? Brentwood residents Stacey and Jeff Rothenberger couldn't be more thrilled with their decision to purchase at Abaco Club. Jeff says, "For us, it checked all the boxes. I'm a golfer, Stacey's a tennis player. It's very social. We feel a part of something special here."

The couple previously owned a second home in San Destin since 1998. They sold that home in October of 2020 and haven't looked back. Stacey says, "We like the fact it's not crowded like San Destin. It's the culture here more than anything else. The Club treats us so special. And the people here are just so nice." 

One can get to Abaco Club in under 3 hours. It's an easy 2-hour flight from Nashville to Marsh Harbour, and a 25-minute car ride from the airport once landed. 

Members, such as the Rothenbergers, not only enjoy the perennially ranked golf course, but an array of water sports, from kayaking, sailing, paddleboarding and snorkeling to spear-fishing, deep sea fishing and marine conservation. With a spa, tennis courts, pickleball courts, a fitness center, and a yoga "dock" that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, Abaco Club has everything. Restaurants on-site (including a taco food truck), a marina with a boat that takes guests to other islands, and an extremely helpful and accommodating staff round out the list of spectacular amenities. 

There are a wide variety of private residential options—each one a comfortable, luxurious haven that's a true reflection of its Caribbean surroundings.

Cabana Suites

Situated adjacent to the beach and in the heart of everything, these delightful, affordable one-bedroom residences are a low-maintenance alternative to an expansive Bahamas beach house. The freestanding, fully-furnished Cabanas are ideal for a weeklong stay, or as a guest house for Cottage or Estate owners who’d like to host visiting family or friends in a convenient luxury home. Prices start at $1.5 million. 

The Ridge Cottages

Inspired by traditional Bahamian architecture, these turnkey Caribbean residences offer the privacy and flexibility of a single-family island home. The spacious three- to five-bedroom homes are perfect for entertaining family and friends—with panoramic views on both sides. To the east are dramatic vistas of the 18th hole and the deep-blue Atlantic Ocean just beyond. To the west, soak up unobstructed views of stunning sunsets and the sparkling, turquoise waters of Winding Bay. Given the collection’s prime location, club amenities are a short walk away, including the Fitness Center & Spa, The Cliff House restaurant, and Tip-Top sunset deck, pool and bar. Prices start at $2.75 million. 

The Cays

From inviting studios to grand 5,400-square-foot, seven-bedroom homes, the residences offer uninterrupted views of Winding Bay and Sugar Cay. Prices start at
