Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms + outdoor shower, sleeps 6+, Ocean, Beach, Dock, Reefs

Coconut beach house is special in so many ways: romance, seclusion, elegance, beauty and grace. It is relaxing and spacious. Every moment is surrounded by sights and sounds that are hard to match. This home has one of the best views in the Abacos and is really as good as it gets. It’s on the Ocean and has a dock on the Sea of Abaco with semi private beaches on both sides of the Island.

This home sits on a secluded point at the north end of Green Turtle Cay every room has fabulous Ocean views. With over forty places to sit or lounge, all with water views, it makes it hard to decide where to relax.

Coconut Beach House dock is the closest rental to deep sea fishing, outer reefs and deserted Islands.

Privacy and beauty are guaranteed. Whether you’re gay or straight, young or old, Coconut stands alone utterly and figuratively.

We include one 4 seat golf cart rental as part of rental price.

We have added a gas generator also for your convenience. It is far enough from the house that you will not hear it and switches automatically if needed.

You won't find better views or more privacy anywhere. With little light pollution, the stargazing is spectacular

The best secluded vacation location in the Abacos.: Coconut Beach House has the best views on Green Turtle day or night. The colors of the Atlantic change by the minute and the stars seem to melt into the Ocean at night. You will be mesmerized by the views, location and its serenity. The semi-private beach is only steps from the house down a short path.

The beauty of this Island and the friendliness of its people add to this paradise. The ease of getting to Green Turtle is very convenient compared to other Island destinations.

We take pride in our personal service. Please call or e-mail any questions you might have. We are happy to be helpful in anyway.

WELCOME PACKAGE: When we receive your confirmation, we will forward a welcome package:

Rental Contract, Custom detailed map of Green Turtle with roads, Aerial Photo of the Island looking from the North End and Information sheet about the Island.

Thank You for taking the time to view our property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time in your spectacular home on the beach, we hated to leave, what a paradise. Everything was just perfect. It felt like home to all of us. Have been going to the Bahamas for over 40 years and this was by far the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. We look forward to another summer.

New back-up gas generator added in March 2018, far enough away from the house that you will not hear it. If you need it, it will switch automatically.

Contact us discounted rental rates from our provider. Wheelchairs only have 3 steps to enter the ranch style house. After you are inside there is one short step about 3 inches at each of the 23 French doors that exit to the screened porch. Bathrooms are roomy but not equipped with handicapped bars. Private Beach: No beach is totally private due to Maritime Law but this one comes close. The views are spectacular, the path to the beach is short, the reefs are just off shore and the nights are starry. Result: total relaxation and serenity.

Great property, peaceful and very well set up!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five with 3 teenagers, and were very happy to find this "out of the way" house on the beautiful Green Turtle Cay. It is a bit bumpy driving the carts on unpaved road to the house, but that is only ~ 5 minutes of the road, the majority of the time going to/from town is on nicely paved roads. The house is well stocked, and opening all the swinging doors creates an awesome nature feel, especially as you listen to the waves crash on the nearby beach. It is not right on the beach, but an easy walk to the ocean side. The bay side is an easy 1 minute golf cart ride away, and then there is the public beach (which we liked very much!) was only about 1 minute away as well, and typically we had all places to ourselves! The beds are all super comfortable, and there are all the commodities you might need, including all the kitchen ware, linens, etc., etc. Due to rough weather we didn't get to use the dock/slip, but it is extremely convenient if you have a boat. The free cart included was a great touch, and Carol Jean was easy to work with. One ding, there was no gas in the outdoor grill, but that was a very minor inconvenience. Overall, we would HIGHLY recommend a stay at this house, and will definitely consider it if/when we return to the Bahamas.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Opening the doors certainly allows for living with nature (except without bugs). The trade winds and the house design make it extremely comfortable to skip the air conditioning. Di and I have actually never used the a/c. The road to Coconut Beach house can be bumpy but combined with location, location, location it makes it the most private home on Green Turtle Cay. Sorry about the weather. Our dock (the farthest north on GTC) is closest to the Ocean cut and deserted islands. You can be on a deserted Island or into the Ocean in 5 minutes from casting off. We dropped the ball with no gas for the grill. In the future a call to Carol Jean, our caretaker, would solve the problem in a heartbeat. Our apologies for not having it ready to use. Thank you for renting from us. Eli and Di

Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything the photos show it to be. The view was amazing. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. It was nice to have a private beach all to ourselves. The owners were great to work with. We will be returning later this year and can’t wait to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We think we have the best location for views and serenity anywhere. However, the people of Green Turtle are what makes it unique. From the moment you step off the water taxi you know you are in a special place. The warmth of the people makes you relax immediately. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Thank you again for renting from us. Eli and Di

Better than the pictures can describe

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a spectacular location and if anything the pictures and videos can't do it justice. The house manager is also great, the house is fully stocked with all the stuff you need like laundry and dishwasher soap, paper towels, toilet paper... Also, the internet is what I'd call medium speed. Not like home, but far better than we usually see and up the whole time. I wouldn't do serious coding from the house, but you could do a full day's modern office work if you absolutely had to.

A couple things that are nice to know, the house has a dock almost directly across from it on Coco Bay, it's about a 5 minute walk or 2 minutes by golf cart. You can rent a boat for the week and keep it at the dock. There are several uninhabited islands that are only a 10 minute boat ride away that we had to ourselves. Also, there is a beach on the dock side as well as ocean side, and usually if the wind is blowing on one side it's calm on the other. Finally, the majority of the roads on Green Turtle Cay are recently paved and you can essentially floor the golf cart and hit 15 mph or so, however the last half-mile or so to the house is dirt and a bit rough on the hills. It keeps the place isolated, so I saw it as an upside, but if you've got anyone in your party who can't take being jostled around for the last 5 minutes of the drive it's probably not for you. It's about a 25 minute drive into New Plymouth where the grocery stores are, less than 10 minutes to Green Turtle Club which has a restaurant and small (even more than normally) expensive store. The Bluff House restaurant is also a little over 10 minutes away.

Last practical notes; if you want good coffee you need to bring it, we couldn't find much beyond Folgers at the grocery stores, and while there isn't an ATM on the island every single restaurant and store we went to took credit cards so the advice you see online for Green Turtle Cay about bringing tons of cash isn't really applicable any more.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very informative review. Your point about coffee speaks to most items. You can get almost anything on Island. However, the selection can be limited. So, if it is a cut of meat, type of coffee or a particular shampoo…bringing it with you is a good idea. The only items that are not allowed into the country are: fresh fruits and vegetables. Thank you again for renting from us. Hope to have you as our guest again sometime. Eli and Di

I want to relocate!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fabulous house, property, and location. Even though it was a tad rainier than we had hoped for a few of the days of our trip, rain in a location like this still makes for an enjoyable vacation. We really enjoyed the secludedness of the house, the wraparound porch, French doors, easy access to the boat dock, and we felt Eli and Dianne provided us helpful information about the home and Green Turtle. We hope to go back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review. We certainly agree with you about the location of Coconut Beach House. This home from the time it was built was recognized as a premier location on Green Turtle because of the views alone. We bought this house without every seeing the interior. We never tire from sitting on the porch looking from deserted Island to deserted Island and watching the Ocean breaking on the reefs. The seclusion is probable our second favorite aspect. Comments like yours have encouraged us to continually upgrade the property with the desire to never loose its standing as the best rental property on Green Turtle. Hope to have you as our guests again soon. Thank you very much for renting from us. Dianne and Eli

Top notch relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This property is very private and has everything you would every need....beds were spectacutar, seating at every angle w/ wonderful ocean views, golf cart rides were fun and adventurous...top notch relaxing vacation!....when we arrived our flights had been delayed and we came in around 9:30pm. The care takers were waiting for us (including the boat taxi). The people on this island are very friendly and so helpful. We had spectacular weather, rented a boat through Donny's Boat Rentals (super great experience), fished with Lincoln and just enjoyed the Sun and Sand. The beach connected to this house is basically your private beach...there are rocks on both ends which somewhat discourage other beach walkers (unless they have shoes) to come to the beach near the house. We saw a 4 foot shark, lobster, 2 dolphins, turtles, an octopus at low tide and various fish. The islands have the best sand and water we have ever experienced - including Hawaii! We very much enjoyed walking on the cocoa beach side (by the boat dock) at low tide.....fished off the pier during high tide and caught yellow tail....saw baracuda, a tarpin, tons of Star Fish, Conch ..... its all there you just have to do a little . We ran every morning and really got to see the island.....took a boat to Teasure Island, Noname and Pellican for snorkling....so much to see and do if you like the water and sand. All in all would love to rent this home again.....Fabulous Layout for Vacationing with children! Go Bucky!

Owner's Response: I want to rent this house after reading this review. You have described our little corner of paradise perfectly. There is so much to do in and around Green Turtle, you might run out of time. This is the perfect place for the person who can make a “not so smooth” golf cart ride into an adventure; who thinks a deserted beach or Island is a must do; the person who likes to lulled to sleep by the Ocean and won’t miss the sound of traffic. Coconut beach house has everything you need for an adventurous or relaxing vacation. Whatever is on your bucket list… the Bahamas should be near the top. Thank you very much for renting from us and taking your time to submit this wonderful review. We hope to have you as our guests again sometime… when you need to GET AWAY! Eli and Dianne

Just Like A....Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Despite the coldest temperatures in the memory of local Bahamians we had a wonderful week in your lovely home. In our first chilly days we were turned inward to the cozy fireplace and the artful decorations that Diane's talent has provided throughout the house. We munched on the coconut bread from town, did some "dry snorkeling" from the boat and counted our lucky stars to be away from the one degree weather in Pennsylvania. From the boat we saw many Manta rays, nurse sharks and green turtles. As it warmed up we took the golf cart down the bumpy path, swam out to the reef and I began this year's count of fish varieties. Green Turtle has so many different types! We also boated to a sunken ship where fish like to gather and did some snorkeling there. A highlight for us was when my 96 year old mother got to feed lobster pieces to the rays from her toes. (She's been loving telling that story to her friends.) What an experience! The house is beautifully situated above the water. There are so many places to sit that you can be social with the family, snooze on the porch or just gaze at the view. A lovely vacation. Thank you. Maureen

Owner's Response: Thanks you for the recount of your week. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. Wish I could have changed the weather for you but it was warmer than PA and most of the US. We do try to stock the house with fun things to do on days like that: puzzles, books, games and movies. The new electric fireplace certainly had added more ambiance to the house. The North end of Munjack Cay usually has hungry rays to be fed and beautiful beaches to explore on both sides: the Ocean and the Sea of Abaco. There is a sunken wreck on the sea side Crab Cay and Fiddle cay is fun for the big sand bay and rope swings. You are correct that Green Turtle has a bit of everything for everyone. Hope to have you as our guests again sometime soon. Eli and Dianne
