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 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. They 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 is air conditioned, has Bahamian Island Cable 32 inch flatscreen TV, DVD player, High speed wireless internet, and includes a golfcart.

As always, GTC & the Abaco's is great
This is a wonderful house, dead in the middle of town. Everything works well. Bar b que is typical Bahamas, but works fine. The house is cute, yet functional for 4. We loved the personalized service from Marilyn too. Met us at the ferry dock (50 yards away) & helped with all our little bags.
Definitely will be staying again.
Capt Gary, Ft Lauderdale FL
This home belonged to an ambitious Sea Captain who loved the sea. He and his wife loved this home and took great care of it. You can feel the history as soon as you walk in the door. Come experience why we have many repeat guests here at Cap'n Sam's.
not fancy, but we love it, just finished our third visit and have booked for next year
we love GTC. This year, Marilyn met us at the ferry, gave us both hugs, and said "welcome home". We love the fact that GTC has no-one up in your face trying to sell you dodgy stuff, no beggars, no litter and no crime. Y'all can walk around at 3am in perfect safety. Never had a bad meal. Its a little more expensive than Florida ( no more expensive than Nova Scotia) but this is not significant for us. Best beaches in Abaco, no crowds, great fishing
Great location, perfect accomodation!
We have been coming to Green Turtle Cay for over a decade but have never stayed in town before. We chose Cap n Sam's based on its location on the waterfront in town and the fact it also had a private dock where we could keep a rental boat if desired. We throughly enjoyed the property, it had all the ammenties one would need to cook if so desired including a grill. The house was perfect for 2 adults and was nicely furnished. We loved our stay so much we booked a trip back next year! Thank you Marilyn and Jim and your team for making our stay so wonderful! Jason & Jen
Great location & views!
Capt n' Sam's is out favorite place to stay on GTC; our 3rd year back & already reserved for 2018! Marilyn & her team are great host. Greeting us at the dock & helping us unload our boat. They had the house ready with fresh flowers, a/c running & golf cart ready to take off in. Freshly remodeled with nice nautical feel -- it was perfect. As always a/c was cold & comfortable beds after being out on the water. Walking distance to our favorite restaurants, shopping, site seeing & sun sets or take the cart to explore the island. Sat at the dock every night enjoying the views. Our 28 foot boat had no trouble getting in or out, even in low tide. Nice cleaning table to clean your catch of the day. The place to stay -- especially if you have a boat.
Green Turtle Cay is fantastic!
We had never been to Bahamas before and we were a little intimidated about renting an unknown property in another country but the owners/staff of Capt. Sam house made it a breeze. We flew into Treasure Cay, took a 5 minute taxi ride to the
Green Turtle Ferry, and a 10 minute ferry ride to the island.( Ferries are proudly reliable and frequent) and we were met at the dock by Marilyn and Sam to take us to the house which was only 100 yards away. They showed us the necessities of the house and got us our golf cart ( very helpful). House is nicely decorated and had all the luxuries of home like cable TV, wifi, air conditioning and cooking utensils. We took the golf cart to multiple gorgeous beaches daily and explored every nook and cranny of the island. Groceries were easily available although pricey compared to US. Many great restaurants to choose from. Being in New Plymouth was fun as we got to see all the goings on of the small town. Best part of the trip was how friendly all the GTC people are. We will be back!
It certainly was our pleasure to have you as our guests. We pride ourselves on providing the best experience possible for all who visit, and it seems that we accomplished that with you.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Reviews are what drives our business.
As far as returning to our island.....we'll be waiting!
Very Special Cottage, Island and People!
Our recent family vacation memories often get me thru daily stressful days. Just have to close my eyes and I'm back having my morning coffee on the front steps of Captain Sam's Home....waving and morning greetings from all the locals who walk by. There is a delightful easy activity at the nearby ferry and I enjoy being a part of it so much. This was our 3rd vacation to Green Turtle Cay and always stayed at Captain Sam's Home...and always will! The owners Marilyn and Jim make sure everything is perfect for our stay. And their team member Sam assists us with any of our needs plus by far the happiest person I've ever met. Every single time he greets you, he wishes you a "Super Duper Day! And that is exactly how you feel staying there. The home is just wonderful with a living room in front filled with windows and great light, two very comfortable bedrooms, large dining room table, back patio with BBQ grill, and very well stocked kitchen. We completely make ourselves at home and so easy to do there. Kitchen has all that we need to prepare the daily conch and lobster that we catch ourselves or purchase from the local fisherman that we now consider friends. Or we hop on our convenient golf cart that comes with the rental of home and head to the local grocery stores in town to decide what is for dinner tonight. We love the grocers, Sid's, Lowe's and Curry Grocery Stores. They take such great care of their customers. Or we decide to walk right over to Harvey's restaurant or The Wrecking Tree for "Fried Chicken in a Bag"- yes, just say yes and order it! Yum! Or even talk to our Super Duper Sam and his Mother will prepare a real local dinner of Fried Conch, Peas and Rice and my ultimate favorite Macaroni and Cheese. It is worth every single penny! We highly recommend Captain Sam's House to everyone we know. It is the most special place as you rent the home and golf cart to explore the gorgeous island but you get so much more...you become part of the island life and the people.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. The waterfront location of Cap'n Sam's is ideal for people watching and chatting with the locals.
It is our fondest wish that all of our guests have an enjoyable stay. We strive to provide the best accommodations; with a focus on a clean, friendly atmosphere . We hope that you will consider us for your next Green Turtle Cay vacation.
