We have Wireless Internet but please bring your own laptop.

We have both, a cistern for water and city water for your convenience .

All linens/beach towels/hair dryers are furnished.

There is a stainless steel gas grill outside for those who want to cook but Green Turtle Cay has great restaurants.

You can snorkel, swim, lobster or fish out the back door! Right behind the house are some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. We have a hammock on the beach for relaxing plus an outdoor shower.

You will love our screened back porch where we have 2 rockers and a table with 4 chairs for outside dining or simply relaxing and listening to the waves.

We are on the oceanside of the island and sit on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean.We are perfectly located in the middle of the island.By golf cart it is a 10 min. ride to town (New Plymouth) or 10 minute ride in the other direction to the Green Turtle Club and Marina.

Nothing but white sand.....bring your snorkel and fins and enjoy!

Green Turtle has markets, restaurants,liquor store and gift shops. The island is only 4 miles long and fun to explore by golf cart.

If you rent a boat there is a public dock on the Sea of Abaco.It is a 2 min. golf cart ride from the house.

You can reach Green Turtle Cay by a 1 hour flight from W. Palm, Ft. Lauderdale or Miami. You fly into Treasure Cay,catch a cab to the Ferry Dock(5 Min. ride)or into Marsh Harbor and ride to Green Turtle by ferry boat which runs every hour.

They drop you off at the Benson dock where you can get your rented golf cart and you are met by our caretaker who will get you to the house and answer any of your questions and also check on you during your stay.

We know you will love it as much as we do! We have had 8 different families that have stayed at our home that have loved it so much they have bought their own piece of paradise on Green Turtle Cay!

We have a 4 night minimum stay.

About Wanda Bennett

My husband and I are in Florida and our sons live in Texas but we are always planning a 'family' vacation to Green Turtle! Now that we have grandchildren it has become even more special to take them.

Why Wanda Bennett chose Abaco

We built our home in Green Turtle and the fun began.Our children are grown now but their love of Green Turtle continues.Our oldest son chose Green Turtle for his wedding in the summer (2009).

What makes this house unique

Absolutely peaceful and relaxing.Each day is an adventure.You can choose to go fishing, snorkeling, spear lobster or sit on the porch and read a book and look at the water. The water is gorgeous with so many shades of color.

The perfect house for the perfect getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you have already done your homework and know Green Turtle Cay is where you want to vacation, I’ll make the search for accommodations easy. The Bennett House has everything you will need for a relaxing and fun filled vacation. The home is well appointed with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. The kitchen has been recently updated and well equipped. The gas grill also expands meal choices. A very nice washer and dyer helps mid week t-shirt needs, also cuts packing down to a small carry-on. There is one bedroom downstairs and two up. There is a very nice TV and stereo with speakers on the porch. Speaking of the porch, you will not find a better view in any magazine. The photos do it no justice. If the photos had the sound of the waves crashing and birds singing, it might get close. The beach is beautiful, and you have it to yourself. Past the beach is the turquoise waters of the Atlantic with a reef that provides hours of snorkeling. You will see fish of every color in the rainbow, including living coral of all types. The location of the home is perfectly situated in the middle of the island. A trip to town or to the Green Turtle Club is a quick fun ride away. Newly paved roads make it even more of a pleasure to hop in the cart and go exploring. Austin, the caretaker will meet you at the docks and escort you to the house. He will familiarize you to your new accommodations, then let you be on your way to a fun vacation. He’s a great guy and knows the island inside and out. Don’t hesitate to ask him anything about the island or things to do. The owner, Wanda Bennett is fantastic to work with and will assist you in making your stay the perfect vacation getaway. Young or old, Green Turtle Cay and The Bennett House has something for you!! P.S. this is our second stay and plan more in the future.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Photos of property were accurate. We had a party of four and stayed for long fishing focused weekend. Wanda was a big help in getting dialed into the property, boating options and ferry/island transportation prior to our trip. Caretaker Austin guided us to the house when we arrived and helped us unload. He would check in from time to time to make sure we were having pleasant stay and were aware of daily island events. View from screened porch and lower deck is unbelievable. Locals are very welcoming and extremely helpful. Great place to relax following our successful ocean fishing adventures. Strongly recommend and hope to return someday.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had such a great time on Green Turtle staying in the Bennett House. Very close to the dock and midway between north and south ends of island. House is on beautiful beach, perfect for snorkeling. Had a blast driving the golf carts around everywhere, very easy to learn where everything is on the island. There were six of us total, four adults and two kids. House was plenty big for all of us to be comfortable. Loved the outdoor speakers and just hanging out on the deck and screened in porch. Would recommend Bennett House to anyone staying on Green Turtle. Only negative about island is food is very expensive! More than double what we are used to, should have packed more of our own. Would love to come back someday and visit again! Thanks Wanda and Austin! Also, Donnie from Donnie's boat rentals and Lincoln Jones fishing trip were fantastic!

Fantastic piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best family vacation spot! We have 4 kids 2-12 and easily got them around the island in the rented golf cart. The people on the island are so friendly and accommodating. We got in late Saturday night and Seaside golf cart rental Owner Marilyn and Austin were waiting as we pulled up on the ferry. Not only did they bring us to the house but Marilyn called her relative to open the grocery store so we could stock the fridge. Within 30 minutes of arriving we had groceries. Of course I wasn't completely sure how to get back home so Sid's grocery owner let me follow him and he brought the groceries inside for me! Island hopping we saw sting rays, sea turtles, pigs, small shark, an eel, sand dollars, shells galore! Amazing time! Plus, Caretaker Austin brought us the best coconut drink!
