About Richard Keller

My wife Chris and I have five children and six grandchildren or 'grands' as they are known in the vernacular of the Bahamas.We live in Waynesville, N. C. and Sebastian, Fl., but travel to Green Turtle two or three times a year (not enough) .We both have 'sand in our shoes', my wife because she was born in Florida , and I because I grew up in Miami. My Dad worked in the Bahamas for a U.S. contractor and introduced me to Bahamian life in the 1960's on visits to his work sites. We enjoy fishing, snorkeling and boating. We've crossed from Florida to Green Turtle many times by small boat .Now that my wife has retired, we'll try to spend more time on Green Turtle. We thoroughly enjoy the people of Green Turtle and having 'Tranquility as our vacation paradise'. Please read our renters comments, as they are a source of pride for us, and will give you an objective look at 'Tranquility' and Green Turtle Cay.

Richard Keller purchased this house in 2003

Why Richard Keller chose Abaco

Location,location,location are 3 big reasons why we built our home on Green Turtle. Tranquility fronts one of the most beautiful beaches on Green Turtle. We are also a short golf cart ride to town and local restaurants.

What makes this house unique

No two days are ever the same on the beach. Breezes, birds, waves and the changing tide make for interesting times.

We are within a 30 second walk of the beach from our front deck, and another 30 seconds into the water.

Tranquility is private but not isolated. At times though, you may be the only person on the beach.

Snorkeling and scuba can be done only a short swim off the beach, even in the lagoon. Tropical fish, shells, and coral are steps away from our front door.

The Best Location on Green Turtle Cay!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further this and the house next door to me were on the best beach on the island!…We loved the views and the ability to watch the children from the living room play in the backyard and on the3 beach….the beach is sheltered by a reef that is fun to paddle out to on a kayak……we loved a few of the restaurants and enjoyed exploring this small island on our golf cart….the kids had a blast……quite the adventure getting there. If your looking for a safe police to go with some beautiful beaches to explore and get away from it all…this is the place….our 4 kids all loved it and thats why we are coming back only to stay for a longer period of time….Richard is very responsive and wants to make sure all details are taken care of which we appreciated.

Perfect Location in Green Turtle Cay!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) stayed at Tranquility for a week and this house was a perfect choice. We loved everything about Green Turtle and the house is located on one of the most beautiful beaches we found, close to town and we enjoyed snorkeling right in front of the house. Richard and Chris couldn't have been more accommodating, making all the arrangements for a driver to and from the airport and assuring that we were met at the ferry dock by their caretaker and with a golf cart waiting. The house is perfect for two couples, with equal bedrooms, and access to the decks from each one. The views are breathtaking. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for cooking. Be aware that food prices in Green Turtle Cay are very expensive and choices are limited. We found it best to go out for dinner and we never had a bad meal. Don't miss breakfast at the liquor store! We loved our stay here and will definitely be back!

Fabulous House on the Best Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tranquility was exceptional! Mr. Keller arranged everything for us....everything went so smooth! We were met at the ferry dock by the caretakers of the house, who helped us with our luggage and took us to the house. There was a golf cart waiting for us, and a representative from the cart rental stopped by to get our signature....so convenient! The house and beach are more beautiful than the pictures online here! When we walked in the door, the view was breathtaking! The location of this house is perfect...situated midway between New Plymouth and the Green Turtle Club. Everything is a fun and quick trip by golf cart. Overall...awesome house, fabulous location and great vacation! Thank you so much for making your lovely home available to us.

YES---Tranquility is Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Tranquility around 3 pm (from a LONG 2 day cross-country trip from Oregon) and were in the water by 3:10. When we walked in the door we were immediately drawn right through the living room and out to the back porch, toward the beckoning sea. The setting of this delightful beach house is just as pictured, just what the doctor ordered , and absolutely perfect. We spent 2 weeks discovering an island of friendly people, fresh conch, fruity drinks, white sandy beaches, and snorkeling wonders. Loved having 'Hummingbird' our trusty golf-cart, for exploring every by-way, every path, every roadway. Top it off with sleeping in, dining out, reading, relaxing, and meeting new friends and you have the picture. Really a vacation to remember and one to hopefully repeat.

Some pointers: Ask Richard or Chris ---the owners--- anything and he will answer---it helps. Take bug spray for the no-see-ems if your the type they bother. Plan to shop local and support the island---the shop keepers all sincerely appreciate it. Do take plenty of cash so you can truly enjoy everything you want.....the entire experience is worth every minute of travel time and every penny of expense!! Tranquility is a treasure.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This house sits on the most beautiful property with unimaginable views! Tranquility is the perfect name for the house and it is the perfect place for a relaxing and peaceful vacation. The owners are so helpful with answering any questions before your trip. The people on the island are friendly and provide great service- from the caretakers at Island Property Management, to Seaside Carts (golf cart rental), to Syd's Grocery store, to Brendal's Dive center, to Sunset Marine & Boat Rentals. It was a fantastic experience! We hope to be back!
