House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Bahama House it is a beautiful new home located on a quiet peaceful bay called Coco Bay on the island of Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, Bahamas. The Bahama House has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, A/C, full house generator, fully equipped kitchen featuring granite counter tops, disposal, recessed lightning, stainless steel appliances including ice/water in the refrigerator door and all the appliances you have at home. Also, the home features a large open living/dining area with cathedral ceilings, recessed lightning, a copula, ceiling fans, a flat screen TV,Wi-Fi, and desk with a VHF radio to communicate around the island. The great room is a wonderful place to gather and exchange stories following a day outside enjoying the tropics, surf the internet on our high speed wireless, or enjoy watching a movie on our flat screen television.

A wrap around deck completes the home featuring a 60' porch and step down to a huge sun deck to enjoy the magnificent view of Coco Bay during the day and the absolutely incredible stars at night.

The master bedroom features a roomy King Size Bed with Sliding Glass Doors opening onto the Deck. The Master Bath features marble counter tops, two marble above counter vessels and a huge tumbled marble walk in shower. The walk in closet will accommodate all your needs with suitcase holders, but all you really need is a swim suit, beach towel and casual dinner wear.

Two additional bedrooms include comfortable queen size beds, night stands and dressers and the fourth bedroom features a trundle bed with pull out that sleeps two. There are two additional full bathrooms with tubs, tumbled marble, and showers.

This is a perfect home for a large family or a group. The Bahama House is right on Coco Bay, a great beach for walking, shelling, bone-fishing, snorkeling and swimming. There is a dock close by where you can tie up your rental boat. Also, there is plenty of room to park a golf cart rental at the side of the house.

The Bahama House is a comfortable home to unwind, relax and rest and offers plenty of privacy but only a short golf cart ride for breakfast, lunch or dinner if you don’t feel like cooking.

Everyone can hang out on the deck and watch the sunsets and you can stay in and cook or you are a short golf cart ride to Green Turtle Club or Bluff House for dinner, or have a chef come and prepare a meal for you.... the choice is yours.

FABULOUS VACATION!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from vacation number 3 to the Bahamas House and I am happy to report that this vacation spot remains the world's best. We filled our days with just the right mix of activities, nightlife, and downtime. Of course, the house was perfect. It's close to all the fun yet far enough away to still feel secluded. Depending on your mood, you can dial-up the day you want. Check out the other reviews for house details, but I can tell you, it's the perfect vacation.

Recommendations:

> Get a golf cart. -- Check with the owners to rent a golf cart on the island. You can go everywhere on the island with a golf cart -- from the ocean beach snorkel spots to "Sundowners" in town for drinks and music.

> Get a boat. The owners pointed us to a boat rental place that set us up with a sweet boat for our stay. Check with them to get the short list of the best rental companies, and be sure to line up the captains they recommend. (That way, you can concentrate on fishing, eating, snorkeling, sunning, drinking, etc., and not worry about driving your boat to the best spots. It's great to have a boat to zip over to Pineapple's or Sundowner's for cocktails!)

> Go on Brendal's picnic. This trip, by far, was the best snorkel/scuba/dive adventure I have ever been lucky enough to join. Brendal and his crew would be fun even without a boat, but the reef we visited, and the remote beach bbq, with all the Bahamian drinks and dishes they cooked up and served... all made for a phenomenal day. Check out brendal.com for details and go. Just go. Regardless of your skill level or experience, you'll love this trip.

> Dine at the Green Turtle Club: Amazingly fine dining that compares well with much snootier venues in metro areas. The menu features a mix of local favorites and traditional fare, and the wine list is as good as any you'll find anywhere. Here's the link to check it out: http://www.greenturtleclub.com/luxury-bahamas-resort-dining (And yes, I live in SF. I get it.)

> Have a "tipsy turtle" at The Yacht Club Pub (before dinner at the Green Turtle Club, or really, ANYTIME) -- The original "goombay smash" -- it's best when ordered frozen and is an amazingly refreshing and relaxing cocktail. Also -- sign a dollar bill and staple to the wall -- because this is where that started.

> Have a drinks and dinner at Lizard's Bar at Leeward Yacht Club http://www.leewardyachtclub.com/index.php/lizard-bar

> Nap a lot.

> Don't miss a sunset. Just don't.

Perfect for four couples!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th annual Bahamas trip, our 2nd time to Green Turtle. This is the best house we have stayed in, by far! A spacious, open floor plan and four comfortable bedrooms meant all of us were happy. No one was stuck in "the kid's room". The furnishings are upscale, the kitchen is well stocked with plates, platters, stemware, acrylic tumblers, etc. the kitchen is open, with a large bar/counter, making it easy for several cooks to work at one time, and still interact with the entire group. The outdoor shower was a bonus. It was great to be able to wash the sand off after relaxing in Coco Bay, or after a day of fishing. Great location at the north end of Green Turtle. Be sure to rent a gas powered golf cart. Great vacation!

A piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in the Abacos for many years and this property was by far the best. The pictures do not tell the entire story of this perfect piece of paradise. The home was well maintained with upscale furnishings that accommodated 6 adults with plenty of space. The deck was special, looking at the incredible beach of Coco Bay. The sand was powder white and the water crystal clear. Perfect for a day floating in the calm, shallow water just relaxing. The home had everything you could want or need. This is the 1st time that a kitchen was well equipped with a gourmet cook in mind. Very nice dishes, plenty of wine glasses and beautiful platters for great meals at home. The layout of the house was perfect. The property owner made the experience even better. Very customer service focused answering all of our questions quickly. She made great suggestions regarding boat and golf cart rentals and restaurant options and she was on the money with every recommendation. I would highly recommend The Bahama House as your next destination.

Absolutely thee best vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

The Bahamas House is, quite simply, the best vacation spot you’ll find in the Bahamas.

It’s located in the perfect place. Far enough away from the restaurants, marinas, and nightlife so you feel serenely isolated, but all of that stuff is just a short golf cart ride away. The pictures are beautiful, but can't begin to capture the true serenity of the place. It's magical. You’ll feel you're REALLY on vacation upon your arrival.

The house features a wrap-around deck and a HUGE front porch facing west towards the water. The sunsets are spectacular.

Steps from the front porch, you’ll sink your toes into the sandy warm waters of Coco Bay, a protected shallow cove full of sea life and an ideal spot for snorkelers of all skill levels. A gently sloping beach gives way to a large expanse of underwater life. You’ll meet all kinds of fish, conch, rays, sand dollars, starfish, sea turtles, and more. After you snorkel, you’ll relax in beach chairs either on the sand or in the water. There’s just no better place to enjoy a cool rum drink than sitting with friends in the shallow warm waters of Coco Bay.

When you decide to head back to the house, you’ll find an outdoor sink and shower on the porch to rinse off the salt and sand. I’m not sure why, but it FEELS GREAT to shower in the sunshine!

You’ll also LOVE the refreshing AC inside the Bahamas House. The furnishings of the house are beautiful, comfortable, and its floor plan is ideal for both extended families and groups of friends. Each bedroom is situated in a spot where it's easy to sneak off for an afternoon nap or to privately stay up late reading novels or listening to baseball games. (The WIFI service in the house is reliable and speedy so don't hesitate to bring your Kindle or iPad.)

The bedrooms connect to a large common area where it's easy to hang out with your vacation companions. A huge great room combines a very comfortable living area with a NICE big screen TV (with DVDs and DirecTV), a cozy sitting area overlooking Coco Bay, bar seating, a modern kitchen, and dining area. You can all be together even when you're doing different things.

But the best parts of The Bahamas House are the owners. Be sure to ask for the “secret list” of great things to do while you’re there. We always mentioned where we were staying to the locals and were treated like royalty everywhere we went. You just won’t find such warm and genuine affection many places, if anywhere.

MANY thanks for the memories! WE WILL BE BACK!

My Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

I travelled from Ohio to Green Turtle cay to meet up with my best friends from America to celebrate our 50th birthdays. The house was even more beautiful than you can ever imagine from the photo's, everything about it is perfect from the inside to the outside. We would wakeup every morning, go for walk down to the beautiful sandy Coco Bay then return to the house and eat breakfast with a coffee on the decking looking at the crystal blue water. We not only snorkelled, sunbathed and watched beautiful sunsets with cocktails in hand each day we also rented a golfcart and traveled around the island, went to the famous island party featuring the local band "The Gully Roosters", and went on an island picnic with the world famous Brendal! The nights that we were not having gourmet dinners at The Green Turtle Club we ventured out to a little restaurant that we became very fond of because the food was excellent it is called Harveys so worth a try. I have definately not stop speaking about this house since I have arrived home and would definately recommend it, even whilst I was there sending photo's home my friends were asking for details. I would also like to add that the people on the island were excellent and the greatest part of all was how helpful they all were from the very moment we arrived off the ferry to when we were departing, they couldn't do enough for us to make sure our stay was nothing short of perfect...thank you all Green Turtle Natives! Thank you once again for helping make our 50th birthdays one we will never forget!

Blown Away

  • 5 of 5

As first time visitors to the Abacos, we were not sure exactly what to expect when we arrived in the charming island of Green Turtle Cay. We were blown away by the beauty of this luxurious residence and even more so by the amazing location and stunning views. From start to finish of our vacation we never tired of the fantastic views of the stunning beach (we were lucky enough to watch dolphins in the bay almost every day). The beach itself was wonderfully deserted, perfect for sun tanning, snorkeling, fishing, or looking for sea treasures.

Overall, this house far exceeded our best expectations and is an opportunity to stay in one of the best located houses on the island. I have no hesitation in recommending this property and will love to return in near the future.
