Enjoy this Caribbean style house with a verandah and sun deck right on the Atlantic Ocean in the beautiful Bahamas. This one of a kind house sits just north of Plymouth Village. From the back door you are just twenty steps away from a beautiful two and a half mile white sandy beach. An underwater sea garden reef is just off shore for snorkeling, lobstering or fishing. As of June 2012 we've added a beautiful 15x30 Fresh Water Pool.. the only oceanfront rental on the Island to offer this amenity! We also just added a 45 KW back up generator that powers everything uninterrupted when Bahamas power goes off.
This 'made for entertaining home' has 5 bedrooms and three full bathrooms on the first floor and 1 bedroom, full bath, and a common area downstairs. There is a full kitchen with granite counter tops and everything you need to cook a gourmet dinner. The open kitchen/dining area allows plenty of room for large groups. Right off the hallway is a washer and dryer. The living room has a large screen TV, DVD player,CD player,and a stereo system with indoor and outdoor speakers .The home also has wireless internet. The downstairs has been set up as a separate suite with a common area as well as a bedroom with three twin beds and one queen bed. We recently added a full bath downstairs for everyone’s convenience.
One of the best features of the home is a large screened in verandah that stretches the entire length of the house. It's a great place to sit back, relax,and take in the incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean. Grab your favorite book and let the ocean breeze take you away. Early risers can watch the sun come up over the water while enjoying your morning coffee and for the night owls, a private jacuzzi where you can soak away all your worries under the amazing stars. 2018 we added 2 new nice paddle boards for our guest to enjoy.

About Rodney Spivey
My name is Rodney Spivey. I fell in love with GTC on my first visit and decided to build a perfect beach house
Rodney Spivey purchased this House in 2000
Why Rodney Spivey chose Green Turtle Estates
The view is amazing. Every time I walk through front door I still have to pause and admire
What makes this House unique
I understand that people want the best of everything. From high thread count linens to granite counter tops. We update our house every year
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
What a view when you walk through the front door!
We loved the property and made our trip very enjoyable. It’s a great location on the Atlantic.
Bella Mare VRBO 169529
Bella Mare is by far the best VRBO that we have rented! From the breath taking view you see each time you walk through the front door, the friendliness of the Turtle Cay people, you will not be disappointed.
My advice is to book Bella Mare, aka, paradise today. Rodney called us the day after we arrived to see if we needed anything. We have never had an owner do that before!
Austin Lowe is a phenomenal caretaker. He was at the docks to get our family as they flew in, answered all of our questions, and phone calls!
Our family would go back in heartbeat, it was so much fun.
On a side note, we flew into Marsh Harbor, the taxi ride to the dock and the ferry ride only take cash. There is no ATM on the Island at this time so make sure you have cash with you.
I'm giving this a 5 star rating only because they won't let me go higher
Bella Mare was a dream vacation for our family! Enjoy Paradise
I've walked through the front door at Bella Mare a thousand times and it still strikes me the same way every time. After several phone conversations I had idea who Cathy was and knew she and her family was in for a great vacation. I encourage guest to contact me by phone so I can steer them in the right direction for an unforgettable trip. Cathy and I are friends now and I'm thrilled their family had a great trip
Another Great Month!
We have enjoyed our second vacation here at Bella Mare! Absolutely no problems and Austin has been more than helpful!

Stressed out high school counselor finds peace, love and joy at Bella mare! My spring break at your lovely home was the best ever, ever, ever! I relaxed with those wonderful views, the breezes on the porch, the porch loungers invited reading, and the hot tub melted away my tense shoulders up around my ears! It was so comfortable inside and great for us to all gather. So easy to get to town, or the club, or our boats - the location was perfect! It was the perfect place to relax, renew friendships in our party after 35 years of not seeing each other, and just wake up everyday in the land of joy with beautiful sunrises and moons. Thanks for a lovely time and such a lovely place with all amenities we could want!
Beautiful house in a beautiful place...
Was fortunate to enjoy 13 days at Bella Mare with a crowd of lifelong friends and family. We had a mix of adults and children - spanning generations - and the accommodations met everyone's needs and expectations. You can't take your eyes off the view and as nice and comfortable as the inside of the house is, the location and view draws you outside to the porch, deck and beach. There are plenty of places to lounge outside and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. The pool and hot tub were big hits with everyone - even though we spent most days on the boats, coming home to a pool and hot tub was wonderful.
My family has been coming to GTC for over 40 years. You can't go wrong with Bella Mare. Perhaps nicest house on all of GTC. Rodney, the owner, is a dream to work with and made sure our needs were met. His local crew of Austin and Dawn were great and I'm happy to say are now friends. With frequent return trips to GTC on the horizon, our first choice will always be Bella Mare!
As someone with over a 40 year history with Green Turtle Cay, I began looking for a new property that would offer plenty of room and privacy to accommodate my family and dear friends. I found it at Bella Mare!
The amount of on-line presence highlighting Bella Mare's pictures combined with the transparent guest reviews drew me to your lovely home on the Atlantic which was all synonymous with this end-users experience. I must confess that as awesome as your on-line pictures are, they don't really equate just how beautiful your home really is Rodney.
My group was "wowed" from the moment we arrived through the front door into your expansive great room which opened onto another full living space on the veranda exceeding all expectations! The placement of every detail throughout your home was spectacular and extraordinary. Just utter perfection! Rodney, you have left no detail unattended to make Bella Mare my first choice again. Lots of memories were made at Bella Mare which will always hold a special place in our hearts. I'm looking forward to adding to that memory bank again and again. Thank you for opening your lovely home to my family and dearest friends which proved to be our best vacation ever together.
Even though, I am very familiar with and have old friends from Green Turtle and didn't need assistance setting up our transportation or fishing trips, Austin and Dawn were available anytime we needed them. They were great!
Without hesitation, I will continue to market Bella Mare every chance I get when talking and/or crowing like a local rooster about what I consider "my home away from home" on Green Turtle Cay! Until next time...
