The perfect house.

Stayed: August 2011
This summer, we had the pleasure of staying at Bananaquit while on our annual jaunt to Green Turtle. We were seven adults and one infant and the house had all the room and everything we needed for a perfect stay. Bananaquit really is as clean, fresh, and well-built as it appears in the photographs.
The kitchen is well-appointed with new appliances and handsome plates and cutlery. We cooked several exquisite meals and were never want for a single pot, pan, or utensil. The gas grille on the back porch was perfect for grilling the fish we speared each day.
The beds and bedding were as inviting as our own at the end of each day and the rooms and bathrooms have the feel of an upscale hotel.
We set up our crib and monitor in the small office, which gets very dark when the curtains are down, and our daughter slept marvelously. If you have an infant or toddler, this extra room alone makes the house perfect.
Nestled in an enclave of native growth with views of Bita Bay, the esthetics at Bananaquit are unmatched. The upstairs porch is a must each evening. Being halfway from the Club and halfway from town, the only sounds you'll hear are the waves lapping the nearby white sand beach.
This is by far my favorite location to stay on Green Turtle because the best shore-based snorkeling is here. Just on the North side of the small island in the bay are enormous coral caves filled with grouper, parrot fish, lobster, and a laundry list of tropical species.
Bananaquit House is everything the description says it is, plus a little more. The only major problem with this house is that, at the end of your stay, you have to leave. We can't wait until next year.
Oh, and if you are wondering what a Bananaquit is, check out Wikipedia.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sharron! We recently added some extra dining chairs and our own pack and play for the little ones. I will have to check out those enormous coral caves!
