About John Nasta
We are John and Sheila Nasta. We both grew up in Miami and Fort Lauderdale and came to love the ocean. Although we have travelled to many different states and countries the love of the ocean always drew us home. In 1984 we first came to Green Turtle Cay and immediately fell in love with the island. The tropical setting is paradise and the people welcomed us as if we lived there all our lives. The seeds of the Coral Sands Beach House were planted.
John Nasta purchased this House in 2008
Why John Nasta chose Green Turtle Cay
The location of our house is on a protected cove on the ocean with a mile long beach directly out in front of the house. Even when the ocean is rough you can always enjoy the gin clear waters right off our beach. A beautiful coral reef lies out in front of the house and provides endless afternoons of snorkeling with the colorful tropical fish. The house is in a secluded area yet also convenient to the town of New Plymouth where restaurants, shops, bars, museums, and grocery stores are all available.

Great Week at Coral Sands
We rented the 3 bed 2 bath top section of the house for two couples in late May 2009 and it was perfect. Everything as described and the owner was especially friendly and helpful. We came from Jupiter Florida with both couples taking their own boat and the marina services recommended were great as were the cart rental people and the property manager. We had been to GTC for a week once before and it was wonderful also but the Coral Sands House was the best because of its location, layout, amenities and helpful owner. We could have easily taken more people and still had the right mix of private and common space. We intend to repeat our visits to GTC and will specifically select the Coral Sands House. The house is centrally located, a short cart ride to anything on GTC. The beach is basically right out in the backyard and has both nice sandy areas and some areas with rock formations for snorkling.The view of the water is excellent from the large porch area and the kitchen and BBQ capabilities are also if you feel like eating in. Our interest was boating, fishing, island hopping and just relaxing with friends and this was the perfect place for all of that and more. We would certainly recommend GTC and the Coral Sands House.
Beautiful, relaxing and well equipped
Throughly enjoyed our time at Coral Sands. The home was well equipped, beautiful and perfectly represented in the pictures. We loved the island and people, friendly and safe. The beach was gorgeous—- we will diffently return.
Stunning. Magnificent. Charming Paradise.
My family and 3 other couples were taking a week long trip to Green Turtle Cay over Memorial Day. We have never been to Green Turtle Cay before - I live in South Florida and am used to beautiful beaches and tropical paradise, but John's property on Green Turtle Cay is a completely different level and experience of paradise. The property sits right on the beach with an amazing porch that looks over the water. The property is incredibly warm and accommodating with gorgeous floor length windows overlooking the picturesque scenery. John was incredibly helpful every step of the way in helping us with important information on how to get on and off the island. We had a fantastic time snorkeling, fishing, and boating. I would absolutely recommend this property to a friend or relative - and we hope to stay in the property again in the very near future.
Perfect House on a Perfect Island
Our stay at Coral Sands can be summed up in one word: FABULOUS!!
Too often photos of a property do not compare with reality, but that was not the case with Coral Sands. We could not have been happier with what we found. The house was clean (this is a biggie for me) with everything provided to make our week long stay very comfortable: cozy beds, loads of towels, a well-stocked kitchen with more glass and cookware than I have at home, plus a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer…also, it was cute!
The location was perfect as we had privacy while being only a short, fun golf cart ride away from New Plymouth. The view of the beach was awesome from the house and was only a handful of steps away where we enjoyed snorkeling and beachcombing.
John Nash, the owner, was very pleasant and easy to work with and he really went out of his way to help us with any questions we had about the island. Gosh, he even reserved his favorite taxi driver to pick us up at the Marsh Harbor Airport (30 minute taxi ride to the ferry landing). I recommend that you follow all of John’s recommendations about boat and golf cart rentals, restaurants, etc. He was spot on. John’s property manager on the island, Julie, was equally helpful. She met us at the dock, led us to the house and gave us an orientation of the property and tips about the island. The power went out one morning and she even came to the house to check on us. When we left she helped us load our luggage and escorted us to the ferry landing.
I will definitely recommend this house and this island! I also recommend renting a boat for 2 or 3 days in order to explore the many nearby islands (feed the wild pigs, chum for sharks, wade with stingrays) and try your hand at fishing.
Second to none in accommodations and view.
We had yet another glorious time at Coral Sands! Our visits have been dream vacations both years, and our kids are not happy that they’ve only seen it in pictures. The house is so well-built, comfortable, beautifully decorated and has two master bedrooms with king size beds. Furthermore, the owners make the usual vacation hassles disappear by arranging for taxi’s, golf cart rentals, groceries and other vacation necessities in advance. We have been seriously spoiled and I’m not sure other vaca destinations and accommodations will ever measure up! (We would love it if John and Sheila would purchase a place in a ski resort as well!)
Can't say enough good things
We are so pleased with our vacation to Green Turtle Cay, and especially with our decision to stay at Coral Sands Beach House. We picked Coral Sands based on it's location (easy access to the whole island) and my conversation with John, the owner. He was so helpful in every way, and we felt totally comfortable sending him a personal check, ( common practice for the VRBO rentals in the Bahamas).
Upon arrival to the house, we were in awe of the spectacular views from the 3 decks/porches surrounding the beach side the house. Also, the small deck in back for the grill is great, because it was sheltered from the wind when we were cooking. As far as cooking at the house- which we did frequently (6 of us stayed together and 3 of us are avid foodies) you will have most things you need to get a variety of dishes nicely prepared. From utensils and pots and pans to dish towels and trash bags, this house comes with it all.
The bedrooms are perfect- awesome stand up shower in the master, and access one of the screened in porches. We kept the door open most nights to listen to the ocean and get a wonderful breeze. The house has central A/C, though, so if you are there in warmer months, don't worry about the comfort level.
Great open living area, and with 6 of us, we were comfortable lounging on the decks any time of day/night, or in the spacious living room/kitchen/dining area. We didn't watch much TV, but access to HBO is nice too if the weather doesn't permit outside activities. There's a variety of games and puzzles available also that were fun to play after returning from a night out in the settlement- and several rum punches or goombay smashes.
The island itself is great. We were immediately welcomed in by all of the locals and had a great time at several beach parties in the evenings. Tranquil Turtle offers an awesome view and food- you can jump off the dock here too into a quiet ocean if dare, Pineapples had fantastic local musicians and the Green Turtle club has very friendly and outgoing staff. Food across the island was awesome and don't miss Violet at Miss Emily's Blue Bee Bar for a Goombay Smash-the original and best (in our opinion).
We spear fished for lobster and caught conch with some of the locals as well -which made great conch fritters and salad, but if you aren't as adventurous, Eddie Bodie makes great food right on the dock- ask about the conch eye (and some other conch parts too) if you are really daring!!!
CANT WAIT TO GO BACK!!!!
Just steps from the house you will find yourself on the secluded white sand beach. The near shore coral reef, packed with tropical fish, is perfect for an afternoon of snorkeling. Our beautiful house is just a brief one hour flight and ten minute ferry ride from South Florida. The historic Town of New Plymouth is a five minute golf cart ride from the house. Here you will find, shops, restaurants, grocery stores, museums, post office, library, and a gorgeous view of the sea of Abaco. Stroll the town day or night and in no time you will feel right at home.
