                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: My wife Chris and I have five children and six grandchildren or 'grands' as they are known in the vernacular of the Bahamas.We live in Waynesville, N. C. but travel to Green Turtle two or three times a year (not enough) .We both have 'sand in our shoes', my wife because she was born in Florida , and I because I grew up in Miami. My Dad worked in the Bahamas for a U.S. contractor and introduced me to Bahamian life in the 1960's on visits to his work sites. We enjoy fishing, snorkeling and boating. We've crossed from Florida to Green Turtle many times by small boat .Now that my wife has retired, we'll try to spend more time on Green Turtle. We thoroughly enjoy having 'Tranquility' even though maintenance is a constant challenge with the ocean air. Please read our renters comments, as they are a source of pride for us, and will give you an objective look at 'Tranquility' and Green Turtle Cay.

                      Why the Owner Chose Green Turtle Cay:
                      Location,location,location are 3 big reasons why we built our home on Green Turtle. Tranquility fronts one of the most beautiful beaches on Green Turtle. We are also a short golf cart ride to town and local restaurants.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      No two days are ever the same on the beach. Breezes, birds, waves and the changing tide make for interesting times. We are within a 30 second walk of the beach from our front deck, and another 30 seconds into the water. Tranquility is private but not isolated. At times though, you may be the only person on the beach. Snorkeling and scuba can be done only a short swim off the beach, even in the lagoon. Tropical fish, shells, and coral are steps away from our front door.
