Green Turtle Cay house description

Swanson House is ideally located on Gillam Bay and the Atlantic on the eastern shore of Green Turtle Cay, one of many beautiful islands in the Abacos archipelago in the northeastern Bahamas.

This spacious home sits high on a bluff on three quiet tropical acres complete with boat dock and private beach. Commanding views of the ocean and protected Black Sound provide both sunrise and sunset viewing.

The village of New Plymouth is just a short ride away, where shopping and casual dining are available. The Bluff House and The Green Turtle Club, on White Sound, are also close by and provide fine dining and night life activities.

Several experienced guides are locally available for fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Kayaks are available on site.

We also have a cottage to rent on the oceanfront (House on the Point; VRBO listing #310005). Please contact us for more details and rates.

                          Year Purchased: 1984

                          About the owner: Our family of four currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama. My mother co-owns the property and now lives in Punta Gorda, Florida, and is a well known island regular. Click 'satellite' on the map below and zoom in to see the property!

                          Why the Owner Chose Green Turtle Cay:
                          This has been our vacation home for almost 30 years. We have rented the cottage to vacationers for many years, and have recently decided to share 'The Big House' as well.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Fishing, diving, and beach combing have been our great pleasure here for years, and there are experienced local guides for hire as well. Lately we are just as likely to enjoy relaxing on our three tropical acres, and the quaint village of New Plymouth is just a short walk or golf cart ride up the road. There one can find shops, a museum, and fine and casual dining. If you have a boat, or wish to rent one locally, our dock on Black Sound is available for your use.
