There are many quaint towns with excellent restaurants and fun shopping to visit, especially in the outer islands, that are only a ferry boatride away.

Sleeps six privately with two additional sleeper sofas. Take time to call for 'Discounted Specials.' (For privacy I only rent to one group at a time). With privacy, tranquility, great accommodations, and fun activities, this is a great place worth experiencing!! Don't let it slip through your hands like the sand. Enjoy it, kick back in the hammock and get some sand between your toes.

About Michelle Bahr

Love the beauty of nature and love this beach! I work hard and play hard but in the end want a peaceful, private beach to relax.

Why Michelle Bahr chose Turtle Rocks

Been coming here since the early 1980's and the waters have this amazing turquois that change with the sunlight that is so magical. The place brings peace in my heart. Abaco is a family island with almost zero crime , I like safe and peaceful.

                                                                The Nutty Mermaid is a wonderful home on a private beach overlooking the Sea of Abaco. If quiet and peaceful is your objective you will find it here. The house is very clean and spacious. 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths was ideal for 2 couples. The kitchen as all the supplies for cooking meals. Overall the house is well stocked from kitchen supplies, to towels to beach gear. The one thing to be aware of at this house is that you are 40 mins north of Marsh Harbor and 20 mins south of Treasure Cay. Stock up well when shopping in either town b/c nothing is close by for a quick trip to the store

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                This was out 2nd trip to the Nutty Mermaid. With any luck, it will not be our last. Its a great place to stay and relax quietly or for breaks between excursions. The beach and views are amazing! The house is beautiful and comfortable!

                                                                So happy you enjoyed my home and thanks for the great picture of all the seafood you caught- mouthwatering!! Yum yum!!

                                                                We've rented vacation homes in the Bahamas multiple times and this was by far the best experience we had. Michelle is incredibly responsive and helpful and that set the tone for the whole experience. The beach and water is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun and sand. It was the best beach I've been to for my 4 year old. She could play in the water while I sat on the beach, because the water was so calm, clear, and shallow near the shore that I had no worries. But a short distance away, you'll find some awesome snorkeling and the little islands near the property were fun to swim or kayak to. It made it feel like an adventure. We had a great time looking for seashells and even found a few sand dollars. The house is equipped with everything you need to enjoy both the beach and the water.

                                                                The house was also perfect for our group. It's rare to find bedroooms with all King size beds and they were comfortable -- another rarity! The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you might need. One small issue we had in the house was immediately remedied by the caretaker, who was there in minutes, despite the raging rainstorm we were experiencing.

                                                                We spent more time at the house than anywhere else. But it was nice to have Treasure Cay right up the street. We spent some time at Coco's and their amazing beach. The best beach we found as far as sheer beauty and nice waves was on Guana Cay, just a short ferry ride from Marsh Harbor. It's in front of Nipper's, which was a fun place, but a bit crowded for us (because were were there on New Year's Eve). We also spent a little time at Snappas and elsewhere in Marsh Harbor. Every place we visited had a very friendly atmosphere and we even spotted a few celebrities.

                                                                We can't wait to visit the Nutty Mermaid again!

Fishing, snorkeling, beach combing, sailing, enjoying the stars while swaying on the hammock, swimming, or basking in the warm Caribbean sun are at your front door. Just a short drive or boat ride away all restaurants, shops, and live music are at your demand. It's paradise just waiting to be enjoyed! Life is good!!
