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.

Lovely New Plymouth Town, Green Turtle Cay Historic Cottage
Lovely little cottage with New Plymouth water front view and dock. Everything you need for a nice quiet stay on Green Turtle Cay. A nice view of the waterfront and ferry landing makes for interesting time on the comfortable enclosed porch watching the boats come in and out of New Plymouth. Very quiet and comfortable. Golf cart makes everything on the island easy to get to and location makes the stay fun and interesting as well and convenient. Owners are on the island and any problem or question is addressed immediately. Very nice stay.
We keep coming back for more...
As if location wasn't enough to make Cap'n Sam's Cottage the perfect choice, their hospitality is always first class. A cozy cottage with comfortable beds after a long day on the boat and cold A/C with all the amenities you will need during your stay. Dockage for our boat right out front makes this an obvious choice for us. Within walking distance to customs, shopping & restaurants in town. Booked again for 5th year in a row.
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
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.
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.
