The ferry is the best way to access the island upon arrival, by plane in Treasure Cay, and you will be greeted and taken to the home with your luggage and will be completely familiarized with all of the amenities provided. For diving or fishing excursions the same dock is available and is within walking distance. The home is also within walking distance to dining, drinks and a gorgeous beach, which faces the Sea of Abaco. This particular beach is very tranquil and loaded with docile sea urchins and marine life with minimal current for swimming and snorkeling. The Bluff House Marina, also walking distance, has boat slips for nightly,weekly and monthly rental, if you have a boat. Harbor mooring is also available.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: The owner is a retired mechanical engineer, graduate of LSU, and has been self employed since 1972.

Why the Owner Chose Green Turtle Cay, Bahamas:
The owner chose the island of Green Turtle Cay after having travelled the Bahamas in his sportfishing boat from Walkers Cay all the way south to Rum Cay and has seen port of calls in most all of the major and smaller islands in the entirety of the Bahamas. Green Turtle Cay is a very quiet, very safe and secure location without all of the hustle and bustle of the major islands while still offering more than adequate amenities and also provides plenty for everyone in the family to do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house was designed and custom built by the owner in 2007. The construction of the home exceeds Dade County, FL building codes and is designed and constructed to handle a category 5 hurricane. The house provides 100% generator back-up, automatic start and stop that will operate everything in the home in the event of a power outage as well as a back-up water supply. There is a VONAGE phone line, free wireless internet and Premium Direct TV.
