Green Turtle Cay Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Gillam Bay on the island of Green Turtle Cay is a tranquil refuge far removed from the rest of the hectic world. This cove with its one and a quarter mile crescent white sand beach lies on the eastern side of the island, where it joins the Atlantic at the place where House on the Point sits on the water’s edge.
House on the Point is a secluded oceanfront cottage with two bedrooms, a full bath and kitchen, a comfortable living room, and a spacious deck, located on the edge of three quiet tropical acres. Step out and enjoy our private ocean beach or the calm bay waters just a few feet from the deck, where a cool sea breeze is always blowing. Spectacular views of the ocean, nearby islands, and tropical gardens are at every window. Cook your catch in our roomy kitchen after a Goombay Smash on the deck. We provide a CD/iPod player, and a short-wave/AM/FM radio should you desire. Check up on your email with our WiFi, or spend a quiet night reading that new novel. Whatever you choose to do, total privacy is yours.

Our family of four currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama. My mother co-owns the property and lives in Punta Gorda, Florida, and is a well known island regular. We come back to the island often to relax and refresh. Our caretaker Patricia McIntosh has been with us for 25 years and is the reason our guests have such a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
The main house on our three acre property has been our family vacation home for almost 30 years. We have rented House on the Point to vacationers for many years, and stay there ourselves when we want to be right on the water.
The village of New Plymouth is a short ride away, where shopping and casual dining are available. Bluff House and Green Turtle Club, on White Sound, are also close by and provide fine dining and night life activities. There are experienced local guides for fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Or you can snorkel right off the beach. Walk out the door and hunt for shells along Gillam Bay. Nearby boat rentals are available, and you can tie up at our private dock after a day exploring the reef. Cruise the island and head into town with a golf cart rental. Bicycle and kayak rentals are available as well.
