Overview

About the property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Renovated and Rejuvenated!

“Barefooted elegance” best describes this lovely Gillam Bay beach cottage on Green Turtle Cay. The waterfront charmer “Sea Star Cottage” is a bright and cheery private get-a-way with 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, a full kitchen, separate dining area and a spacious family room with a “view to die for”.

Sea Star Cottage sleeps up to 6 people and is located within a 5-7 minute walk from New Plymouth and yet offers the seclusion of being just off the main road where you will hear native birds and gentle surf when you awake and not traffic.

With a complete interior renovation just finished in January, Sea Star now flaunts beautiful Turkish Travertine tile throughout and fresh paint on every surface.

The all new kitchen with white Shaker cabinetry, Cold Springs granite, and GE appliances including dishwasher, microwave and smooth cook top make meal preparation a pleasure when you decide to stay in rather than enjoy one of the dozen restaurants on the Cay. A screened dining porch adjoins the kitchen for that al fresco evening. A gas grill is provided.

The Cottage is air-conditioned throughout or you can open any of the new windows to catch the fresh breezes off the bay. The front porch overlooks the spectacular expanse of Gillam Bay and the Cottage's charming cove. Here you can enjoy that morning coffee or evening cocktail hour. Shade Sails are provided over the porch for those preferring a bit less direct sunshine.

The master bedroom offers a king bed and all new connecting bathroom with a shower. The guest room has two single beds with a connecting bathroom with shower. The third bedroom also has twin beds and is just off the dining area. Privacy is provided by rolling barn doors and it is just steps from the new half bath.

When you need a break from lounging on the porch or napping under the palms in the hammock other amenities include a secured Wi-Fi network, 40” HD Smart TV and a DVD/Blu-ray player with access to your Netflix or Hulu subscription. Don’t forget to pack a few of your favorite movies and games. A landline phone is not available but phone apps such as Facetime, WhatsApp, Skype, Magic-Jack, Vonage Extensions, etc. all work well.

Non-smoking and no pets please.

Why The Owner chose Abaco

We decided to purchase Sea Star because of its exquisite location. It truly is a blissful beach getaway where we can relax and enjoy everything the ocean and island has to offer.

What makes this bungalow unique

We love to go beach exploring. Plus there is some of the BEST snorkeling we have ever experienced, in the world! We also enjoy renting boats, kayaks, taking dive tours and simply exploring the island and the Abacos. There are quite a few restaurants on the island to dine at and everyone is extremely friendly.

Enchanting!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Sea Star several times at different times of the year. Absolutely charming, with comfort abounding. Really nice, friendly island people too. So...grab your sunscreen, book, floppy hat, snorkel, flip flops, your favorite friends/family, and enjoy the rum in the sun! The location and seclusion right on the beach makes for a happy, memorable vacation. Love this place!

Most amazing location it's like heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have now stayed here three times in the past 3 years and every trip has been fantastic! Each time we stayed with friends and had such an amazing time. The location cannot be beat- a private beach in the most beautiful bay, great for kayaking, swimming, and snorkeling. We took long walks on the beach every morning and evening, rarely seeing anyone. Super cute cottage with everything you need and a great deck, perfect for lounging during the day, having a nice dinner looking over the ocean or watching the stars at night. The island itself is so terrific and we loved taking day trips with the electric cart to new beaches, exploring some of their great restaurants, and visiting the local bars. Thanks so much for making your home available. We will certainly be back every year!
