Wonderful escape!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property on the north end of the island. Offered just the right amount of seclusion we were looking for, while providing our children Wi-Fi in order for them to stay in touch with their friends. Out the front door you have an amazing beach with one of the most beautiful reef systems I have ever dove or snorkeled. Out the back door you have a beautiful bayside beach (Coco Bay), filled with sea turtles, rays, and lots of other sea life. We swam with and fed the turtles on several occasions. My husband and I took our 6 adult children for a family vacation, fun was had by all, and many wonderful memories were made. Thank you Nicole and Carol for your help with everything.

Spectacular property!

  • 5 of 5

Nicole and Larry were great hosts. We were met on their docks and they had everything ready for us including the golf carts we rented. Our house had a amazing view of the beach/ocean (30 feet from our house) and it was only a short walk (maybe 200 feet) to the bay where we docked our boat. We snorkeled the amazing reef about 70 yard off our beach - and saw all sorts of coral and tropical fish (the reef was incredible and huge - it went forever). Also, we speared 5 lobsters just off their beach on our first day!

Nicole and Larry helped us find a fishing/spear fishing guide that helped us catch plenty of strawberry/mutton groupers, yellowtails and lobsters. Larry told us where to conch and the kids had a great time diving down for conch.

The houses were clean, fully equipped and comfortably decorated. We cooked a lot (of our catch!) and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare the food. Beds were comfortable. Only problem was that the dishwasher broke and they couldn't repair it during our stay - Nicole and Larry bought us plenty of paper plates, etc. so we wouldn't need to wash dishes. There is a wifi house that works well. Its a 5 minute golf cart ride to Green Turtle club (good restaurant and bar) and 10- 15 minutes to New Plymouth (more restaurants, grocery, bars etc).

Green Turtle is a great choice for the Abacos because you can fly in to Treasure Cay airport and its a 5 minute ferry to Green turtle. It is not very crowded and you can really feel like you are getting away. Also because its more isolated, the fishing/lobstering is plentiful.

We had friends staying in the house next to ours. We truly enjoyed the property and the accommodations. It is a really special place.

Wonderful hideaway in Green Turtle

  • 5 of 5

We rented two of these houses here at Cocobay for a week with friends. Cocobay cottages offered us exactly what we were looking for, location, dockage, two beaches, a calm one, and then the one on the atlantic side (with an amazing reef!) and great hospitality.

Our cottages were perfect for all the cooking at home we did, with the lobsters that we caught steps away at the reef on our beach. The property owners were happy to help us out with any thing we needed, helping us with our golf cart rental, a fishing guide, and getting us to the ferry dock on our last day. The houses were fully equipped with anything and everything you needed to cook amazing meals and breakfasts, great washer and dryers, which is key when you have family and don't want to pack tons of stuff, and the air conditioning and TV's worked great so we could tune into the Olympics as they aired.

Cocobay is very close to the Green Turtle Club and New Plymouth, so any place we needed to go was only ten minutes away. We spent time at Guana Cay and Spanish Cay and also did much fishing and diving. So having our boat docked right in Cocobay was simply amazing.

We would definitely stay here again. If you're looking for a place were you can have it all, this is it.

We have stayed here many times over the years and absolutely love it. If you want a vacation where you truly leave all your stress behind, this is where you need to stay. Great property! We loved it! Beautiful houses and beach! Best spot on the island! Plenty to do on the for everyone. Owners are great and can answer any question you might have. Wouldn't consider giving any rating other than five stars!

Huge disappointment

  • 2 of 5

The location was great but that was about the only thing we liked about the house. We never received a key to lock up our personal belongings while we spent our days out on the water, fishing and diving The house was gross. The furniture had blood stains on it, the blinds were destroyed and literally dangling on the windows. The ad stated that there would be wifi, a grill and a coffee maker. The house did not have any of these items. Additionally, there were no trash bags, paper towels or toilet paper in the house. For the amount of money we spent, we were extremely disappointed in the house. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Ouch ! After 31 years and 75% repeat clients , I would like to address MR. K . Comments. WE have NEVER given keys to the cottages but had discussd changing our policy because most people these days travel with expensive electronics. We now offer keys . He is right about the broken mini blinds, we brought some over ( by plane ) and were replaced immediately .we do have rust spot on some items, we are located Directly ON the ocean . When Mr. K was visiting , the Internet service island wide was down for 2 to 3 days . Everyone in Abaco was impacted ..thankfully it does not happen often and most time , just for a few hours . With communications down, it became difficult to get in touch with our property manager .... We do offer FREE wifi , it's located centrally on the property and housed in the rec center where you find comfortable chairs ,paper & pens . It does not always reach inside the cottages ...but is only a minute away . My property manager showed Him the grill and even added an extra gas tank because the one attached was low . We were unaware of the malfunctioning coffee. Maker. We had replacements . Finally, when I found out from Mr. K That he was coming with Vets on a fishing fun trip. I donated a couple of golf carts for their use . He also left an expensive fishing pole behind and we made arrangememt to send it back to the States with another trusted client to get it back to him . We offer personal service to all our clients ,but sometime , especially on an island 200 miles miles at sea , it is more difficult to fix something immediately ...but any and all issues are taken care of . We appreciate the comments , you cannot fix what you don't know . The next clients in the same cottage were on their 25th visit with us !
