The house was very clean and has everything you need. And a golf cart too! We had an awesome time.....swimming with the green turtles, feeding and swimming with pigs and, of course, Nipper's! We are looking forward to our next trip!

Shorty's Cottage, Green Turtle Cay

  • 5 of 5

This two week stay on the gorgeous Green Turtle Cay was our best vacation ever. We loved the cottage -- it had everything we needed. Marilyn picked us up at the ferry dock and took us to the rental. We saw her everyday as we were located right downtown, close to everything -- grocery stores, liquor stores, restaurants and the docks. We could walk everywhere. The beautiful Gillam Bay beach was only a ten minute walk away. We loved this vacation so much that, before we left, we booked to come back next year. The people in GTC are all so friendly and helpful and we met so many wonderful residents and vacationers. It is no wonder that so many Canadians love GTC!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a famtastic holiday on a really friendly Island, Shortys cottage was everything described and more. There were 2 of us and the Cottage was more than big enough, it was well equipted and very comfy, it was a real home from home. We were met at the Ferry by Marilyn and Sam who walked us the few steps from the Ferry to the cottage, they were very warm and friendly, showed us around and left us to settle in.

Shortys is so convienient for everything, grocerys, resturants and the liquor stores are all a very short walk away and the golf buggy is brilliant for exploring the beaches. We enjoyed the holiday so much and if we come back to this island Shortys is were we will stay.

BC Westcoaster Islander

  • 5 of 5

This island paradise was well worth the long trip from Canada's west coast. We were greeted with warm smiles and hugs at the ferry in Green Turtle Cay, by the cottage's owner, Marilyn. She was so friendly and a very caring hostess. Once she showed us the cottage, which is seconds from the ferry wharf, she left us to our own devices. The cottage was wonderful and suited us perfectly. Two clean modern bathrooms, two bedrooms, one with two single beds, and one with a double bed...both comfortable. The screened-in back porch was a nice place to get out of the sun and a pleasant place to sit. The furniture in the living room was overstuffed and comfy, perfect for lounging and reading and yes, there is wifi. There was air-conditioning in all the rooms which is great as you can keep the rooms you want cool. The kitchen was well equipped although having a few condiments on-hand would have been useful. There is a new washer and dryer....a real asset when you only take a small suitcase. You don't need much, as the weather is so good that shorts and t-shirts and flip flops are all you really need. You can rent a golf cart down the street, from Marilyn's Seaside Carts for $50 a day. The cottage is so well located in New Plymouth that a cart is not totally necessary -- but you do need a cart or bike to get to the beaches up the coast. Shortty's is close to grocery stores, next door to one of the liquor stores, and close to the centre of everything. There is a very rich history in this place. We found this cottage the perfect size for the two of us, with enough room that we were not tripping over one another. This cheerful cottage is quiet even though it's right in the middle of town. All the people are friendly, cheerful and polite. To sum it all up, Shorttys was more than adequate and the photos don't really even do it justice but give a fair idea. We will definitely be booking again. Loved it all!

Wonderfully relaxing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Shorty's Cottage offered everything that we needed with a few pluses...... Sam hooked us up with fishing pole and gear which was perfect for my time there. Marilyn went out of her way to make us feel like we belonged on their island. Thanks so much for a perfect time. Only wish I could have stayed longer, like FOREVER would have been great!!!
