Green Turtle Cay house description
Captain Sam Sawyer was an industrious Bahamian man who made his living from the sea. In his lifetime, he sponged and shark-fished. His colourful past even included rum running during prohibition...along with several other island men. He was a pioneer in the craw-fishing industry which is second to tourism in the Bahamas today. He had an 85' Coast Guard Vessel which he docked in front of his house. When he was not craw-fishing, he and his wife Mary, took fishing parties out on weekly excursions. The collected and sold seashells, sea fans, conch shells, starfish and coral (when it was legal to do so) to Florida souvenier shops. His home which was built in the early 1950's has been completely remodeled and is located on Bay Street in historic New Plymouth. It has a private dock with a fish dresser. It is air conditioned, has Bahamian Island Cable TV, DVD player

Just an awesome experience from start to finish. Before we left our house, we had plenty of available support for all island info via email or telephone from the owner/staff, and were able to help us set up the things we wanted to do there. Jumped off the ferry at the GTC public dock and walked the 100 feet to the front door of the cottage which had been very well-prepared for our arrival. The cottage had everything we needed to enjoy our week there, including superb air conditioning and a nice golf cart at our disposal for transportation all over the island. The residence was very clean, and is fully equipped for a nice standard of living. There is staff present next door during the daytime, and are very accommodating for any questions, needs or problems we may have. The private boat dock right out the front door is a true gem of a feature, enabling us to be on the water in just minutes after closing the front door. The island residents are very friendly and social, the food at the local restaurants is outstanding, and everything is a short walk from the cottage. There is no doubt that we will return to GTC, and when we do Capt'n Sam's Cottage is where we will put our feet up for another week.
