Green Turtle Cay

Long Bay House is on Long Bay Beach, Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, Bahamas, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and over a mile long.   The 2 acre estate includes over 300 feet of this beach.  Nestled among coconut palms, the sound of the Atlantic Ocean is your constant companion at this vacation paradise.  You can rent either 2.5 or 3.5 bedrooms and enjoy the entire 2 acre property.

Long Bay House sits 20′ above sea level overlooking the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, including fruit and flowering trees. The house provides magnificent views of Long Bay Beach, Pelican Cay and the Atlantic Ocean.  Words don’t do justice to this beautiful property.  See our pictures on the photo page and get the overall perspective by going to Google Earth.  Long Bay House’s swimming pool is easy to see on Google Earth.  Find it at 26 45’41.28″ N and 77 19’12.30″ W.  From this perspective you can see the length and beauty of Long Bay Beach, the size of the estate, as well as its proximity to town and other areas of interest on the cay.

The house includes a large great room, a fully equipped kitchen, and a dining room with seating for eight.  The screened-in porch offers additional seating and another dining area even closer to the beach.  There are two master bedrooms with king size beds, each with its own bathroom, and one of the master bedrooms has a bunk room with two twin beds.   With these two bedrooms, the house sleeps 6 people.   A third bedroom with a king size bed and its own bathroom is also available, in an adjacent, easily accessed cottage. With this third cottage bedroom, the property accommodates 8.  The house includes satellite television, DVD player, wireless internet, and local telephone service.  While the house is positioned to catch the sea breeze, it is fully air-conditioned, just in case.

Steps from the front door is the fresh water pool.  In-pool seating on three sides of the pool makes it a great place to sit and enjoy an evening cocktail.  The pool is surrounded by a large open deck area for relaxing in the sun.

Overlooking the pool, standing approximately 40′ above sea level, is an observation tower from which you can take in the 360 degree view of the island and enjoy sunsets.  The property also includes a gas grill, a chickee hut close to the beach with a picnic table, and a gazebo directly on the beach which provides an elevated and shaded sitting area.

Long Bay House is over 250 feet from the road, accessed by its own private drive, and shielded from the road by a dense growth of trees.  Unlike most beach houses on Green Turtle which are on subdivision type lots, this estate has no neighbor except for the cottage which has it s own separate acre of land and access road.

Green Turtle Cay is approximately 3 miles long and 1/2 mile wide.  Most people get around on golf carts which are available for rent.  Long Bay House is located a short 4 minute golf cart ride from New Plymouth.  New Plymouth is the only town on the island of Green Turtle Cay.   Green Turtle Club and Bluff House are also brief golf cart rides away.  If you have a boat there is a public dock nearby for small boats and Leeward Yacht Club is just a couple hundred feet down the road and can accommodate much larger boats.

Green Turtle Cay is unique, as is Long Bay House.  While there are many options for rental homes on Green Turtle Cay, no other compares to Long Bay House and its location.  If you do nothing else on this web site, look at the photographs.   The pictures tell it all.
