Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect vacation staying at the Bennett House on Green Turtle Cay. The house was outstanding for our two small families. Everything seemed to exceed our expectations.

In addition to being a great place to stay at, Wanda was wonderful. She was very flexible with us as we were coming in a small aircraft, and her and Austin perfectly accommodated our changing schedule due to weather.

Green Turtle Cay was a great island to visit and everyone we dealt with was great... Reef Boat Rentals, Seaside carts, and all the great restaurants and shops. We will definitely be back!

Best vacation rental we've been to in 20 years!

  • 5 of 5

We travel annually to beach locations over the December holiday and this one is our favorite! The home has every accommodation and comfort imaginable. From the comfort of the mattress, the thread count of the sheets to the fully stocked kitchen, screened porch and wonderful sound system, it was truly the most beautiful and comfortable vacation we've had in over 20 years. Watching the sun rise from the screened porch, beach fishing, walking on the beach and swimming in the beautiful ocean were some of our highlights. Thanks to Ruth, the home is impeccable! and Austin, not only met us at the dock and drove us to the home and took us back upon departure, but was incredibly helpful in giving us a tour of the island and insuring our every need was met. The island is truly a piece of paradise. We can't wait to return!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Bennett house was fantastic and my family of 5 had a wonderful time. The owner was super accommodating and the on island caretaker Austin truly took care of us during our stay.

The house itself was remarkably clean and well appointed. The pictures truly don't do it justice. We've stayed in a lot of rental houses in a number of different locations and Bennett House is at the top of the list. Unlike some rental units, all of the amenities listed, including the outdoor speakers, actually worked as advertised. It's obvious that the owners take a great deal of pride in maintaining and upgrading this property.

There is no pool onsite per se, which concerned me a bit with our 5 year old waterbug, but it was no problem. The beach is great and the Leeward Yacht Club and their awesome pool is about a 2 minute ride away.

I intend to be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and the people that run it to my friends and family.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Had another glorious time on Green Turtle Cay. Although we have tried a few other places, our favorite is the Bennett House. A cup of coffee on the back porch at sunrise is quite possibly the most beautiful place on earth! The reef in front of the house makes for many fond memories. The house is quite comfortable for the six of us. It is centrally located between town and the club. The caretaker was very attentive to our every need. He even prepared starfish for us to take home!! All in all, we will be back!!!

Great for gazing at turquoise water!

  • 3 of 5

I have been going to this island on and off for the past 14 years and this was my first time staying at this property. The island is the perfect get away - nothing like sunshine, sand, and turquoise water to calm the soul! I like its simplicity, laid back nature, and the residents are very welcoming.

With regard to the property, first the positives: the owner was very responsive and accommodating; the location is perfect as it is centrally located (a short golf cart ride to town), secluded, and right on the water; the natural foliage surrounding the house is well maintained; the caretaker met us at the ferry dock as promised and transported our luggage to the house, took them back to the dock on departure, and waited with us until the ferry arrived to make sure all was well; the rented golf cart was at the dock upon arrival as arranged by the owner; 'lots of beach towels, bathroom towels, linens, and kitchen stuff; having use of a washer and dryer was great!

Now the not so positives: the house was smaller than anticipated (I would say it is more of a cottage than a house) and feels dated; while it does indeed have beds to sleep 6 it is best suited to 1 or 2 adults travelling with children; the upstairs bathroom is extremely small; the verendah is screened in, however, the bugs get in through the space between the floor boards as there is no screen below the floor boards (if mosquitoes and noseeums love you, be forewarned); there were a number of power outages during our stay, note that the house doesn't have a generator; a 'welcome package' would have been a nice touch.

When I next return to the island this property will not be my first choice, but I won't rule it out completely - the view of the ocean from the house is fantastic.

Owner's Response: Denise, First, thank you for staying at the Bennett House.We are glad you enjoyed the view. I am very excited about our kitchen remodel in 3 weeks (new cabinets,appliances and granite countertops). We will re-attach the screen under the floor of the back porch. We strive to keep the house updated and the guests happy. Most of my guests are returnees every year with no complaints.

Best family vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

By far, our trip to Green Turtle Cay was absolutely the best vacation we have ever taken. To begin our trip we flew Airgate Aviation out of New Smryna Beach, Florida and to quote my 12 year old " I don't ever want to take a big plane again". It was great and we were treated like VIP's. Once arriving in Treasure Cay we were unloaded and on the ferry to Green Turtle in less than 45 minutes. The caretaker for Bennett House, Austin, met us at Benson Dock with our Golf Cart. Immediately our adventure began with the kids getting to see a huge tub full of baby sea turtles that were going to be released later that day. The house was more than we could have expected. Everything you need is available to make your stay like home.Austin took us for a quick tour of New Plymouth and showed us all the necessary stops. While we were gone, our kids ages 20, 14 and 12, had already gotten out their snorkeling gear and headed to the water. The snorkeling behind the house was amazing. During the week we saw many different species including a barracuda and eel. We rented a boat from Donnie's Boat rentals and he was more than accommodating. He also took us to Hope Town for a day trip which included many stops along the way and lunch. It was a beautiful day!! We used the kitchen at the house for most meals but we did eat out on the island at Green Turtle Club and Harvey's. We used our boat and took day trips to No Name Cay,Lincoln's Cove and Treasure Cay. At No Name we played with the pigs and swam in a deserted area where the water was a blue as anyone could possibly imagine. At Lincoln's Cove we swam with Sting Rays and Nurse Sharks. Everywhere we went we met the most interesting and friendly people. Austin took us out and spent an afternoon chasing sea turtles. He knows the best spots!! I can't even begin to cover everything we did and all the memories we made. Wanda.....your home is amazing and we thank you so much for sharing with us. Also a shout out to Austin, he is a huge help and a great friend that we hope to see again. I am an educator and my youngest child wanted us to research how I could get a job in the Abaco's. We will definitely be back!!! My suggestion for anyone traveling to GTC is to pack very little clothing and lots of food, sun screen and bug spray. We even packed frozen meat in a cooler which kept our food cost way down. You do not need many clothes....I promise we wore bathing suits and cover ups most all week.
