About Michelle Bahr
Love the beauty of nature and love this beach! I work hard and play hard but in the end want a peaceful, private beach to relax.
Why Michelle Bahr chose Turtle Rocks
Been coming here since the early 1980's and the waters have this amazing turquois that change with the sunlight that is so magical. The place brings peace in my heart. Abaco is a family island with almost zero crime , I like safe and peaceful.

Idyllic beach front. Quiet and private.

So happy you enjoyed my home and thanks for the great picture of all the seafood you caught- mouthwatering!! Yum yum!!
Nutty Mermaid in the summer
My family, myself, and friends had a great time at the Nutty Mermaid. We have been all over the Bahamas, and I do mean all over. We were a mix of tech divers, reef divers, beachcomers, snorklers, and boaters, and Nutty Mermaid had it all for us. Make no mistake, you will need a car, but those are easily arranged in the city.
A perfect blend of privacy, with access to a "major" city, we really enjoyed the nite sky unpolluted by city lights, no noise, and a world class private beach. I'm not even a beach-goer, but this sandy beach in the back yard is unbeatable for small kids and adults alike. This is on the clear, brilliant, Sea of Abaco; the largest waves we had in our week were maybe 3 inches!
The minor downsides are a few horseflys, and you will need to drive to a restaurant; no real public transportation out there. The use of some minutes on a local cellphone was an unexpected bonus. Highly recommended, and I hope to return.
Lovely home in private setting with amazing views
The Nutty Mermaid is a wonderful home on a private beach overlooking the Sea of Abaco. If quiet and peaceful is your objective you will find it here. The house is very clean and spacious. 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths was ideal for 2 couples. The kitchen as all the supplies for cooking meals. Overall the house is well stocked from kitchen supplies, to towels to beach gear. The one thing to be aware of at this house is that you are 40 mins north of Marsh Harbor and 20 mins south of Treasure Cay. Stock up well when shopping in either town b/c nothing is close by for a quick trip to the store
So wonderful to hear you had a great time!
Someday we hope to have a small mom and pop store when they build a marina
Have a blessed day and Think sand between your toes!! Michelle

Think sand between your toes!! And lobster and fish in your belly 🌴�😎�🌴�
We've rented vacation homes in the Bahamas multiple times and this was by far the best experience we had. Michelle is incredibly responsive and helpful and that set the tone for the whole experience. The beach and water is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun and sand. It was the best beach I've been to for my 4 year old. She could play in the water while I sat on the beach, because the water was so calm, clear, and shallow near the shore that I had no worries. But a short distance away, you'll find some awesome snorkeling and the little islands near the property were fun to swim or kayak to. It made it feel like an adventure. We had a great time looking for seashells and even found a few sand dollars. The house is equipped with everything you need to enjoy both the beach and the water.
The house was also perfect for our group. It's rare to find bedroooms with all King size beds and they were comfortable -- another rarity! The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you might need. One small issue we had in the house was immediately remedied by the caretaker, who was there in minutes, despite the raging rainstorm we were experiencing.
We spent more time at the house than anywhere else. But it was nice to have Treasure Cay right up the street. We spent some time at Coco's and their amazing beach. The best beach we found as far as sheer beauty and nice waves was on Guana Cay, just a short ferry ride from Marsh Harbor. It's in front of Nipper's, which was a fun place, but a bit crowded for us (because were were there on New Year's Eve). We also spent a little time at Snappas and elsewhere in Marsh Harbor. Every place we visited had a very friendly atmosphere and we even spotted a few celebrities.
We can't wait to visit the Nutty Mermaid again!
Privacy, peace, and tranquility on a private beach is what I love! Fishing, snorkeling, beach combing, sailing, enjoying the stars while swaying on the hammock, swimming, or basking in the warm Caribbean sun are at your front door. Just a short drive or boat ride away all restaurants, shops, and live music are at your demand. It's paradise just waiting to be enjoyed! Life is good!! (I try to respond within 5 hours of receiving your inquiry- if you use multiple sights my ratings may be lowered on one because I answered on the other site) Think sand between your toes! Michelle Golf: We have some great golf course nearby, contact me if you would like some details.
