We live in North Carolina and have been coming to Green Turtle Cay since 1998. We love it here and look forward to sharing our home with you.

Susan and Tim Marshall purchased this cottage in 2005

We bought our treehouse because it is located at our most favourite part of a lovely island. It is tranquil and beautiful. We love boating, bonefishing, swimming and eating the local fare.

We love relaxing on the dock or in our screened porch.

CUTE PLACE

  • 4 of 5
Another lovely week on Green Turtle. Beautiful weather and lots of great diving with Brendal. The SeaTurtle Treehouse is adorable and it was the perfect size for the two of us. From the web site we thought it had a private dock but the dock is actually shared with other cottages nearby so that's the main reason it only got 4 stars. Also there were a few things we are used to getting with other houses that we thought should have been provided (like a cooler). And we were told when we got there that we were provided with one roll of toilet paper and then we had to buy our own. Not a big deal (kind of humorous actually) but personally I'd rather just pay a little more for a property and have everything provided. Aside from those few things we were happy with the house and thought it was really cute and clean.

Owner's Response: We sincerely apologize about the toilet paper (!), most certainly an oversight by the housekeeper. We have notified our property manager. Thanks for the suggestion about the cooler - we have now provided one for guests.
The dock is private, shared only by the 3 small cottages on this quiet cove. Sorry for any misunderstanding.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The treehouse was perfect. Top floor has great views. Second Floor had a great screened in deck with fans to keep you cool and out of the sun. Great Location. Property managers were extremely nice and had everything prepared for us upon arrival and departure. All we had to do was show up and enjoy the island.

Owner's Response: We plan to add cushions to the long bench at the back of the screened porch for an extra spot to relax out of the sun and a refrigerator for keeping cold beverages close at hand!

My son and I have made an effort to vacation in the Bahamas as often as circumstance and money allow. Between us, we have visited three of the other Bahamian islands and half-a-dozen Caribbean locations. This will be our go to place from now on.

For me GTC had everything I was looking for and the Seaturtle Treehouse met not only our needs but the setting was the final marvelous touch. Marina, beautiful beaches, night life are all close by and our fishing guide picked us up at our dock (sweet).

More over, both residents and visitors were extremely friendly, the logistics were handled exceptionally, both island and house were wonderful surprises, and we had a great time.

BEYOND THE BEST!!

  • 5 of 5
It has taken me a while to get around to leaving this review but trust me, it is no reflection on the property (more on my laziness!). As a matter of fact, we just booked it again for this year.
The island itself is delightful, the people are so friendly and everything is just what a vacation should be - comfortable and laid back. Be sure you go to Sid's market and try the absolute best bread... we even took some home with us!
As for the house, it is quite frankly perfect. It is cozy but it suited us well and I think it would have been comfortable with another couple also. The views from all parts of the house are what the islands are all about - stunning views!!! One of my favorite places is the lower enclosed deck with the swinging chairs - perfect spot for reading. The other favorite is coffee on the dock in the morning. Heaven!!!
I see in other reviews that the driveway has been paved - we called it our thrill ride!
I really cannot say enough about this wonderful house. If you are looking for a secluded, quite, BEAUTIFUL place to get away - this is it.
We are so excited to be going back and are counting the days!

Owner's Response: Sally- we are so pleased you are coming back! Morning coffee on the dock is our favorite time to watch the only traffic you see from the house (boats and sea life!). We've added comfortable lounge chairs to the screened porch since you were there last- and we agree, perfect spot for reading and relaxing! Enjoy! Susan and Tim

A LOVELY VACATION RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
Seaturtle Treehouse is an extremely well maintained and fully equipped cottage--far above the usual standard of vacation rentals. The kitchen, for example, has almost everything you would have in your own home and not just the owner's cast offs. Thorough weekly cleanings by Elloise are far more than we expected. Our only quibble is that the bed is closer to a double than a queen size.

The setting for this cottage is magnificent as it is perched over the Sea of Abaco with its always interesting parade of boats and magnificent sunsets. The ladder down into the water is a bit steep but the reward is easy swimming and a host of tropical fish under the next door neighbour's dock--so bring your snorkel mask. The gorgeous Bluff House beach is few hundred yards away.

The rocky and difficult road into the cottage was being replaced with a smooth concrete path while we were staying and so should not be a problem in the future. Be warned, however, that none of the roads on Green Turtle Cay are in great shape and they are particularly poor between Green Turtle Club and the cottage. Golf carts and bikes both involve a bone crunching ride--walking is much more pleasant and you can easily walk to Bluff House (2 minutes) and Green Turtle Club and the lovely Coco Bay Beach are a 15 minute walk.
When you arrive, the ferry will drop you off right at the dock if the sea is calm enough and you will be met by the Sawyers who are extremely helpful and a source of lots of information.

This is one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in and one of the most reasonably priced.

Owner's Response: Gail,
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time on GTC and that you were comfortable in our home! While the bed might have felt smaller than you are used to, it is a standard US/Bahamas queen size. The driveway from the main road to the Treehouse is now completely paved! We hope you will come back and stay with us again. Tim and Susan

QUIET CORNER OF A SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Green Turtle Cay is a very special place. Unspoiled but with just enough services to make it comfortable. Don't go there if you need to be entertained or pampered, do go there if you want to get away.

And the tree house is located in a quiet, scenic corner of the island. Turtles at the dock, sunsets from the deck. Everything about it invites relaxation. Everything you need is at the house, and the amenities of a resort are just over the hill. A welcoming, helpful local manager is available if you need.

We loved it. We can't wait to go back.
