Why Please contact Cheryl Loudon for booking inquires or any additional needed info. chose Green Turtle Cay
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.

we are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay, francesca! thank you for allowing us to work with you and hope you will keep us in mind on a return trip to green turtle!
Big open kitchen and living room! Pool was so refreshing on a humid afternoon! The sunrises were breathtaking!
Great vacation house!
I can't say enough about this property and the property manager, Jennifer. The house was ready for us when we arrived and it surpassed our expectation! From the huge kitchen, to the outdoor deck and pool, to the utility closet, everything was fantastic! Jennifer was so accommodating and accessible! She wven met us to help with luggage. We are already looking to book again. Thank you again for sharing your vacation home with us!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the beehive! It truly is a family-friendly home and I am so very glad that you and yours enjoy your time there! Jennifer is amazing and we also appreciate everything she does! We are so blessed and lucky to have her on our team! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and we absolutely look forward to your coming back to stay with us!
Don't take the Master bedroom unless you want to be sleep deprived!
The property is beautiful and despite house problems, we had a blast. Green Turtle Cay is a wonderful, fun, beautiful place.The pool is awesome and we spent a lot of time enjoying it. Unfortunately the property advertised sleep number beds in all rooms which I was so looking forward to. I guess sleep number beds don't last long in a humid area because the master bed was extremely squeaky. We had six women in the house and whenever my bedmate moved an inch, the bed squeaked so loudly we hardly slept! The ice makers did not work well so we resorted to bag ice and trays. Neither the icemaker nor the water in the door of the frig in the kitchen worked. I live 8 months out of the year in the Bahamas so I totally understand the wear and tear on houses but the house really needs a bit of TLC and a new master bed mattress. Despite my complaints, our property manager, Jennifer, golf cart hostess Carol, waitress Lenisse at Lizards and Brendal ,Mary Ann, and Kyle, our boat captains and hostess were such a pleasure. We also enjoyed a snorkeling charter with Brendal and Mary Ann, then a few days later an all day trip that was amazing ending with a delicious cookout prepared by Brendal, his gracious son, Kyle and Mary Ann on the beach with all our new friends.
We loved staying here! It was so beautiful and spacious! A wonder place to stay if you love to cook as well!
This was our second time at the Beehive. We came back for the spacious house, the well-stocked kitchen (any appliance or utensil you'll need to cook with), the pool, and basically any other comfort of home that a lot of rentals might not have.
Thanks to the Cheryl and to Jennifer for making booking and checkin very simple and pleasant. We'll see you again soon.
The Bee Hive is located on White Sound, adjacent to the Jolly Roger Restaurant and Bar and the Bluff House Marina. The Treasure Cay Ferry landing is walking distance from the home. 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.
