Tennessea Turquoise (formerly Tranquility) is a comfortable home which we spend much time in ourselves. We have recently refurnished, redecorated, and maintain it as we do our own home in Tennessee. The beach is steps away and has gorgeous turquoise "swimming pool" water with both a coral reef and a sandy bottom. The water is easily accessible to cool off in while spending time on the beach. A small island, which one can swim to, provides protection from heavy waves, as well as, exploration while sea kayaking, snorkeling or paddle boarding. The beach is quiet and a safe place for children to explore, as our son did in his childhood. The deck off the greatroom provides ample area for outdoor activities with both shady and sunny spaces. There are 3 tables available for outdoor dining. Our family loves to cook so we have furnished the kitchen with all the tools needed to cook a memorable meal. Both bedrooms, with kingsized beds, have French doors that lead out to balconies facing the ocean. A loft overlooks the greatroom. Whether one chooses to watch DVD movies or curl up with a book, the loft provides an extra area for adult relaxation or play area for children. A comfortable daybed converts to a double bed or king if needed. The loft shares a bathroom with the upstairs bedroom. A separate observation deck offers a perfect place to enjoy incredible views of nearby islands while having a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail. So take a nap or watch the sunrise from the hammock in our yard beside the ocean!

About Pam Mobley
We are the Mobleys. Ed, Pam, and Chris. Nice to meet you! We live in Knoxville, Tennessee. Ed grew up in Knoxville, and I in Erwin, Tennessee. Chris is a student of Engineering at The University of Tennessee. Ed and I both attended UT as well. We all bleed orange! But we wholeheartedly welcome our SEC rivals. We have been coming to Green Turtle Cay for over 20 years now and have spent the majority of time in rentals in the Bita Bay area. Being "empty nesters" , we spend a lot of time in Green Turtle Cay, particularly during the winters. We are very social but savor our quiet time, as well. Green Turtle Cay affords a venue for both. We can choose to do as much or as little as we want here.
Pam Mobley purchased this House in 2016
Why Pam Mobley chose Green Turtle Cay
My home town of Erwin, TN reminds us of the small town feel of Green Turtle Cay. The people here are friendly and accommodating. Many feel like family to us. GTC has been a safe place for us to bring our son all these years and he has never tired of it in any of his stages of maturity. The beauty of this island and the surrounding water is unparalleled. We have traveled throughout the world but we always want to come back to Green Turtle Cay. Ed and I specifically chose this home for the phenomenal beach. The fact that there is swimmable water with a soft sandy bottom and well as a coral reef steps from our door made it perfect for us. The house is just the right size for our family and we have made it very comfortable and livable for our family and friends who visit us frequently.
What makes this House unique
We love the open floor plan and extension of living space out into the ocean breezes. The house is in a great location near the center of the island. It is close enough to town for supplies, marinas for boating, and restaurants for wonderful Bahamian fare. And have we mentioned the beach?

Just an absolute blast!!!! The house was perfect! Pam is a fantastic host!!! If you don't go to Green Turtle Cay, you are missing out!! Has changed my attitude on life!!!
Our guests took such good care of our home, which is greatly appreciated. Andrea was so communicative and a real pleasure to talk to on the phone. Come back sometime!
Outstanding! What a wonderful vacation. We did not want to leave.
Clean well maintained home and spectacular beach
The trip to Green Turtle is part of the adventure. Easy direct flights to Marsh Harbor from Atlanta on mid-sized regional jet (yes first class seats). A 20 minute private transfer (minivan) to "The drop off point". Basically a ferry boat dock with an open air bar. A 15 min ferry ride across the bay of Abaco to the "Benson dock", where your prearranged golf cart is waiting. Five minutes later you are home. The house is ocean front, unobstructed views, soft sand and clear water, that i have not seen since the 1970's in the middle keys in Florida.
The home itself has all the comforts for a great stay, wifi, internet, cable tv etc. There are two bedrooms with king beds with baths, modern and clean although down stairs bath is somewhat small. The kitchen is well stocked but if there is something that you have to have you should bring it. There are 2-3 small grocery stores, liquor stores but expect to pay 30% than the mainland. Great bars and restaurants but no crazy night life. The Bahamian residents are very welcoming and I/we felt very safe. Plenty of water sports and fishing. The owners are very helpful and can guide you in travel/ transfers. In short a beach house that you would live in that is on a fantastic beach.
Excellent Retreat and I Will Return
Pam and Ed have are a wealth of information and have an amazing home on an amazing beach. I can’t wait to bring my family back to Green Turtle Cay to stay at Tennesseea Turquoise. A pristine isolated beach just steps from your room. It is the perfect retreat from the stress of the world, and you will be well-prepared for a great week at the beach since the Mobleys readily share their wealth of information regarding the island and amenities in the home’s guide book. If you let people know where you are staying, you will be in good hands on GTC.
We were so happy to have you and look forward to having you again!
Awesome home on the beach!
Really nice home right on the beach. Two nice bedrooms with a kitchen / living room that looks right out on the water. Very nice decking to sit on both in the mornings and late afternoons.
Great vacation getaway!
This is our third time at this property and first time with the new owners. Love the upgrades to the property, which made our stay more comfortable. We will be back soon!
