Peaceful Times House on Green Turtle Cay is located on the hillside overlooking Coco Bay and the Sea of Abaco. This comfortable house is very private surrounded by a canopy of native trees, yet located withing one minute to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and the Sea of Abaco. Please note that this house is a ONE rental unit as the downstairs area is simply a basement.
The house is also close to all the amenities of the Green Turtle Club and Marina and Brendals Dive Center. Golf cart and boat rentals can be arranged and there is free dockage for your use on Coco Bay. Offshore and flats fishing guides are also available.
Enjoy breakfast and sunset views from the large fully screened porch which includes a dining table with six chairs and two chaise loungers. It is also a great place to read a book or watch the hummingbirds and Abaco parrots fly by.
The historic settlement of New Plymouth is located fifteen minutes away with restaurants, grocery stores, and other stores.
We are Paul and Diane Gerson, owners of Peaceful Times. We have been visiting Green Turtle Cay for over 25 years. When the opportunity to purchase land and construct a home arrived, we made the decision to build and never looked back.
We still find Green Turtle Cay to be our favorite place for the true island experience. It is not a pre-packaged vacation experience rather a real island where people live, work, and welcome travelers with open arms.
We would encourage anyone to visit us to enjoy the ocean, food, and beauty of this most wonderful island.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
We are in a very private setting yet so convenient to the beaches and other amenities.
Had a wonderful time during our visit. The highlight of our stay was definitely the combination snorkeling and lobster cookout with Brendal's dive center. Beaches were great. Local clubs and restaurants were very quaint and a great place to meet fellow vacationers and locals. The home was very clean and well kept. We look forward to returning on the future.
We have visited many Bahama out islands and even owned a beachfront home in Great Harbour Cay for some years. I can say that Green Turtle Cay is by far one of our best experiences to date. GTC has the "off the beaten path" out island feel that we like - yet offers a wide variety of eateries and conveniences. The "Peaceful Times" is a lovely well built home and perfect for our family of four - very comfortable. The interior is efficient, neat and clean with plenty of linens and supplies. The vaulted ceilings and high windows throughout the home was an unexpected delight.
FUN STUFF: The golf cart rental from Sea Side carts is a must and was the conduit for each days new adventure. The beautiful white sand beach access is really close to the house - just a few minutes walk. Cracked conch dinner with rice and peas at Wrecking Tree restaurant was outstanding as was our grouper meal at McIntosh's Restaurant and ice cream cones here too. Sid's grocery was clean and well stocked, Lowe's and Curry's markets also had many items as well as frozen meats of all kinds including fish, lobster and conch. Be sure to pick up a loaf of the fresh baked Bahama breads available in the stores each morning. Our favorite was the warm coconut bread which most days didn't make it back to the house! Our daughter combed the beaches and found beautiful shells and sea glass and took hundreds of pictures. Our son learned to cast a fly rod during our stay and ended up wading the flats with us. We located a goodly amount of bone fish schools tailing in two different areas along the flats on the West side and these are easily accessible. The family voted and this was one of our favorite family vacations ever....and we have teenagers!
Thank you Paul and Diane!
This lovely house is prettier than the pictures and the seclusion is wonderful. The best thing about this vacation was the people from Green Turtle Cay. We had a little medical emergency that cut our trip short, but the people were so helpful and genuinely concerned! This place and the home are a definite repeat-without the medical emergency of course!
Green turtle cay and peaceful times are great! Even with some iffy weather the home and the island were inviting! The realtor, the rental cart people at sea side were all very friendly and helpful. The home was in great shape, very clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need for your vacation. The beaches only minutes away and in great shape. In town on GTC McIntoshs and Harvey's were great restaurants to eat at and for your groceries; Sids and Currys were best. Overall peaceful times was a great experience well worth the money and a place that we will visit again!
Myself and two friends just returned from two weeks at "Peaceful Times" . We found the house to be a very pleasant surprise . It was tastefully decorated in island motif. A very pleasant place to spend time reading and relaxing after a long day at the beach snorkeling and shelling. While we didn't cook very often ( the restaurants were too enticing) the kitchen was very well supplied: plenty of good cook wear, silver wear and glasses. The beds were firm, but comfortable. We also loved having plenty of hot water so all could get a shower. Everything worked. Two great beaches were an easy walk away, though we were lazy and had a golf cart.
While not the fanciest house on the island, it was the best value we have had with the eight VRBO homes we have rented and the owners the nicest to deal with. A lovely vacation was had by all.
We stayed four nights in this very comfortable, clean and well appointed house on a bluff above Coco Bay. It was our second trip to Peaceful Times and again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our golf cart was waiting at the ferry landing of Green Turtle Club and our rental boat was docked at the new dock on Coco Bay. Mornings, we walked down to the ocean beach to beach comb and never saw another footprint as October is truly offseason. We walked the town and struck up conversations with many of the friendly residents of New Plymouth. Fresh caught snapper and lobster cooked in and home style dinner out at Harvey's made for a relaxing trip to Green Turtle Cay.
