About the property

House with pool, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Bananaquit is a truly spectacular modern/tropical home with a pool in one of the most desirable areas of Green Turtle Cay, steps from Bita Bay Beach, close to the historic town of New Plymouth and close to a public dock. It is nestled in a beautiful garden setting with an ocean view and a path to the ocean. The home's inspiration comes from an ultra-modern gourmet kitchen featuring granite and stainless steel counter tops, luxury appliances including a built-in AEG espresso/cappuccino maker.

The home is designed with your comfort in mind, whether it's enjoying the garden/ocean setting from inside or out on the wrap-around veranda with Bita Bay beach just steps away.

The main level has a master suite with a king size bed and on-suite bathroom, a second bedroom with a queen size bed and bathroom adjacent, a den with a flip sofa, and very spacious living and dining area, which can easily accommodate all the guests.

The lower level has a bathroom and two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with two twin beds, sleeping an additional 4.

Bananaquit offers many amenities including central air, ceiling fans, cable TV and internet, generator, and just about everything you would need to make your stay not only enjoyable but memorable.

Snorkel the nearby reef, beach-comb for shells, go for a bicycle ride, rent a boat, go fishing, lobstering, exploring the island by golf cart, or just relax and enjoy the sun by the ocean or our new pool.

We recommend Seaside carts for cart rental, just because we like them.

Visitors to Green Turtle Cay consider it a true tropical paradise unlike any other. That's why most return year after year.

About Mary Milec

We are Milan and Mary Milec. We live in Southern Ontario Canada. They call our area the Sun Parlour of Canada, but when we want sun and sand, particularly in the winter, what better place to go than to Green Turtle Cay.

Mary Milec purchased this house in 2009

Why Mary Milec chose Green Turtle Cay

We first visited Green Turtle Cay over 20 years ago and have returned many times since. We were impressed with the beauty of the Island, the beaches, and the water. Over the years we have made many friends with the local people and second home owners and we just feel so at home here.

What makes this house unique

Our home was completed in Dec. 2009, so everything is relatively new. The home is furnished in a modern style with tropical accents. The kitchen is a must see! There is usually a beautiful breeze, but with a wrap around veranda you can always find a sheltered spot to relax and read a good book.

Bita Bay beach with its protected cove and snorkel reef are just steps away.

A recently acquired generator will avoid any inconvenience due to power outages.

The central location makes it easy to get to town or anywhere else on the Island.

A new pool in 2015 adds to the benefits of this beautiful property.

Bananaquit House has everything we needed for a fun and relaxing vacation. We were a party of 10 that fit comfortably. The home is well appointed with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. Kitchen is renovated and the gas grill was perfect for all the home cooked meals. The photos do not to this home justice. The beach is beautiful. The pool was great after a long day spent on the beach or the boat. The location of the home is perfectly situated in the middle of the island. A trip to town is a quick fun ride on a golf cart. This was a perfect family vacation. Definitely will be planning a repeat vacation. Thank you

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent almost a week at Bananaquit this May and it was amazing. After a week of bone fishing on Andros, we arrived at bananaquit. It was amazing. Its a one minute walk down a private path to the beach where there are two lounge chairs for bananaquit guests. The house is very comfortable, and even has a built in expresso machine! There is so much room inside, that a family of 6-8 could comfortably stay there. The screened in porch has amazing view, and the pool was perfect, we spent hours in the pool. Edward the gardener kept the grounds and the pool in great shape. We had a relaxing and an amazing stay at bananaquit, I will definitely return to Bananaquit.

Great stay at Bananaquit!

  • 5 of 5

We had four adults and four children (7, 14, 15 & 17 all boys) in our recent stay at Bananaquit. Our family does VRBO about 4 to 7 times a year and as mentioned in earlier reviews, this is one of the most well stocked homes we have rented (beach towels, laundry detergent, dish soap, spices and condiments, etc). We thoroughly enjoyed being able to snorkel right out in Bita Bay where we saw many different kinds of fish, a sting ray and even some coral (too bad it wasn't lobster season as we saw three HUGE lobsters every day down in one of the crevices right in front of the house!) And even though we swam in Bita Bay every day, we also swam in the pool every day, especially our was nice to have that option too! As others have mentioned, the central location was nice, however we didn't fully appreciate it until later in our stay as we discovered just how far some of the other properties are from town. Our favorite meals were at the Green Turtle Club, Ballyhoo's and Macintosh. Most of the other places we ate at had good food, but it took a really long time (3 hours at Pineapple's) to get it. We rented a boat from Donny's for the week and had great fun exploring the other islands (swam with sting rays and sharks on Manjack, fed the pigs on No-Name, swam in the amazing turquoise water at Treasure Cay and the highlight, was snorkeling off Pelican Cay which Donny showed us where to anchor!)

I want to extend extra praise for both the owners and the management of Bananaquit. Mary, the owner, continually answered all my emails and questions leading up to our stay and gave out helpful information regarding the property as well as the island. Julie, the manager was waiting for us at the ferry dock before we even arrived. She responded to all our questions and was available by cell phone for questions that came up during our stay. Upon departure, she again showed up right on time to help us get back to the ferry and waited with us until we boarded. Once we got back to Treasure Cay and were headed to the airport, we realized a cell phone had been left at the ferry dock. Our taxi driver called the management company, and they located Julie, who found the cell phone and then made sure it got put on the next ferry! Then the taxi driver picked it up and brought it to the airport!!!! AMAZING! Talk about customer service! They all went above and beyond!! Thank you for a wonderful stay on Green Turtle Cay!

We have visited Green Turtle Cay eight times in the past five years. We have stayed at two other properties, quite nice, but Bannaquit...this house has it all! Centrally located on the island, steps away from Bita Bay and probably one of the best cared for properties we have used since we have been visiting GTC. The well thought out landscaping surrounding the property truly achieves the status of " private island hideaway". Lush tropical plantings surrounding the home and the pool offer a private and a restful spot to relax after a busy day of boating, snorkeling, fishing, and beach combing. If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen was fully stocked with just about anything you could think of to create a gourmet meal. A lovely home for families or couples. Plenty of space to gather or have time to yourself. Will we rent it again? Without a doubt!!!
