About Dianne or Eli

Eliott and Dianne are celebrating a "Night of Elegance" at the Green Turtle Club in this photo. We live in the mountains of Colorado where Eli has been a ski bum and owned a ski shop for over 35 years. Recently retired we spend more time on Green Turtle usually in the Fall and Winter. We are starting another rental project on a cliff in Nicaragua overlooking the Pacific, coming 2020. Surf's up!

Dianne or Eli purchased this house in 1999

Why Dianne or Eli chose Green Turtle Cay

Coconut Cabana is located near the heart of the action on White Sound but, still private at the end of the palm tree lined drive. Your private dock is steps from your door and minutes by boat to the Ocean, the reefs, the Town of New Plymouth, the Sea of Abaco and Great Abaco. The Sound is protected from the Ocean yet has easy access to all areas.

What makes this house unique

The people on Green Turtle are what made our decision to live there easy. We have traveled the World and settled on this area as our home away from home. The convenience of getting from Colorado to GTC and home again in one day and not arriving totally exhausted was the clincher for us to settle here.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Coconut Cabana. The house was very comfortable for two couples. The location is wonderful with a private dock, several excellent restaurants and a beach within easy walking distance and a pool right next door. A golf cart is all you need to access numerous beautiful beaches and snorkeling sites but the private dock makes renting a boat very convenient. The boat provides easy access to most of the island beaches, fly fishing flats, restaurants and shopping, as well as access to all of the surrounding cays.

The owners, Dianne and Eli, were very responsive and helpful while planning our trip. We highly recommend this property.

Think Perfection Then Multiply By 1000

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we wanted, and then some. Green Turtle speaks for itself – so go ahead and read all the other rave reviews and just know they don’t begin to do it justice! Awesome setting, wonderful people, Quintessential Bahamas Out Islands. The key thing about the Cabana, it sets up the whole trip. The place was clean, spacious, and optimally located. We wanted for nothing. Everything in Green Turtle was within our grasp and effortless. You could not make a wrong turn or a bad decision. What a life it was to have a beautiful “base camp” to return to after our daily adventures. Even the afternoon thunderstorms were a joy as we watched them from the wrap around patio. Being able to explore the area then coming back to the Bluff House resort was sweet. Great first trip to Green Turtle. We’d do it all again exactly the same. It had been a few years since we visited the out islands, so returning with our 5 year old boy and reliving it this way was very special and something we actually scrutinized for months. Green Turtle delivered. Just to mention a few, of course Di and Eli were over the top accommodating and helpful, offering inside info and tips, usually unsolicited and always spot on. Carol Jean went beyond the call of duty – she was even kind enough to let us check out a little later which made all the difference as we soaked up our last morning and our boy blew off steam before the hop back over to the Mainland. Donny was the man, squeezing our last minute boat rental request in (and even coming to pick me up) before a doctor appointment. In a world gone mad, this place restores one’s faith in humanity. An extremely relaxing visit, just what we were looking for. The only unfortunate byproduct of this experience, set up as nicely as that as far out as that in a place as pristine as that…it tends to reset one’s standard on accommodations and you never want to settle for less. We’ll accept it for the beautiful thing it is and make the necessary attitude adjustments for the time being, but it won’t be easy. In the meantime we will look forward to returning and would like to thank Di and Eli again guys, from the bottom of our hearts for opening up your home to us for a few great memorable days in paradise! Regards, Becky, Bob, Bode.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. The natives of Green Turtle make an amazing location even more special. You know you are in a different world when the Captain of the water taxi calls ahead to make sure your host is on hand for your arrival. We do everything we can to set up Coconut Cabana for a luxury rental, but the people of Green Turtle are the stars. Their willingness to go the extra mile is amazing. They want to make sure your vacation is memorable. They want you to come back. As a result, everyone wants to come back. We have many many return renters. Our most frequent guest has rented over 40 weeks in the last 6 years. I have been going to GTC since 1972. It’s a special place. To this day the first two islands to the north and south are still uninhabited. A deserted beach is guaranteed. Reefs with everything from sharks to tropical fish are easily and quickly accessible by boat or golf cart. We look forward to having you back again and again. Green Turtle Cay never disappoints. Thank you again for renting from us. Eli

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week and this house is fantastic! House was super comfortable with a beautiful view of White Sound with the Bluff House Marina in the background. Perfect for two couples or a family and we ate every meal outside on the screen porch. The beach down the street a couple hundred yards away was really nice with tranquil water perfect for swimming.

House has everything you need to cook and direct tv was a nice touch after a long day on the water. We rented a boat for the entire week and it was great having the dock so close to the house. Beds were very comfortable, showers were hot, and overall a very enjoyable experience. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in keeping this house in great condition.

The owners were in constant contact prior to our departure and the caretaker was available to help if needed during our entire stay. Highly recommend this house and we'll definitely be back.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a wonderful time. We have tried to supply the house with all the creature comforts you are accustomed to at home for a relaxing and mindless vacation. All you need to pack is a swimming suit and a smile and we will provide the fun! You are correct the people in the Bahamas make the difference. From the taxi drivers to the waitresses to the shop clerks, all the Bahamians are truly glad that you came and they want to be your friend and not just take your money. We hope to have you as our guests again sometime. Thanks so much. Eli and Di

Seven Days in February

  • 5 of 5

The house is everything you said it would be and then some! The layout is superb for two couples with king suites for each. The bathrooms are extremely well designed with lots of room and easy access. Everything is modern and up to date. The kitchen and dining area are nice and open, and similarly equipped with first class appliances. Everyone commented on how the house has been meticulously well maintained. Truly a first class experience.

Weather was dicey, as we expected in early February. There were only three really nice days and two lost to rain. By contrast, over a foot of snow fell at home during our stay, and temperatures hovered around zero. We did NOT want to go home!

For those who read this review, let me assure you that Coconut Cabana Villa is a steal. Private dock on a tranquil bay with a broad veranda view of the harbor. It do not get better than this!

Thank you Eli and Dianne for a memorable experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for renting from us. We have tried to supply everything to make your stay at Coconut Cabana a great deal. We are constantly updating and have recently replaced all the fans, there is a new bigger TV and new HD satellite receiver along with new dishes and bedding just to mention a few things. We want your Bahamas vacation at our cabana to be as relaxing and carefree as you deserve. Thank you and we hope to have you as our guests again sometime. We should have a new logo: "come to the Bahamas and get out of the snow". Thank you for your gracious review. Eli and Di

Happy return customers!

  • 4 of 5

We have been repeat customers of the Coconut Cabana. And we have already reserved 2015 for two weeks. From the first time we rented there a few years ago we have really enjoyed staying there for it's its value, location, amenities, and owners that are a pleasure to deal with.

It's a very comfortable house for two couples, and even had a friend crash one night on the sleeper sofa last year that was visiting from Marsh Harbour and it got too late to return that day. With a split plan we have all the privacy we need, and cook in a lot so the well equipped kitchen is great for us.

Very conveniently located to Jolly Rogers bar and pool next door, and everything on Island is easy to get to by boat or golf cart.

Have always felt it to be a safe place for families and couples alike.

Green Turtle Cay is 160 miles East of Florida (approx. 1 hour by plane) to TCB or MHH airports located on Great Abaco. You take a taxi to the ferry dock (about 5 minutes from TCB and 45 from MHH) and then a water taxi to Green Turtle Cay (about 20 minutes). Getting there is half the fun. The Taxi ride should be around $10 from TCB and $90 from MHH and the ferry ride is $13/pp. The ferry will deliver you to the main ferry dock in New Plymouth where you will pick up the keys from Kool Kart Rentals. Kool Karts is located at the end of the dock. It is about a 15-20 minute drive to White Sound and the house. A 'Welcome Package' will be emailed to you when we receive a confirmation.
