Coconut Cabana is waterfront on White Sound, Green Turtle Cay in the Abaco Bahamas. The private house is surrounded by a screened porch that overlooks White Sound and The Bluff House Yacht Club. As a private part of a resort it has use of all the amenities of the resort with a pool side bar and restaurant nearby.
The designer decorated home has an open floor plan for easy entertaining inside or out with a fully equipped large country kitchen. The two identical master suites are tropically decorated with private baths and all linens are included.
Coconut Cabana’s dock is 80’ with dockage on both sides for small boats. White Sound is an active harbor with lots of boat activity. The water ferry can deliver you right to your private dock.
This rental by owner is as front and center as you can get on quite Green Turtle Cay.
Eliott and Dianne live in the mountains of Colorado where Eli has been a ski bumb and owned a ski shop for over 35 years. Dianne's main job is convince Eli to retire and get out of the snow. We spend time on Green Turtle usually in the Spring and Fall. Dianne finally succeeded and Eli retired October 2014!
Dianne or Eli purchased this house in 1999
Coconut Cabana is located near the heart of the action on White Sound but still private at the end of the palm tree lined drive. Your private dock is steps from your door and minutes by boat to the Ocean, the reefs, the Town of New Plymouth, the Sea of Abaco and Great Abaco. The Sound is protected from the Ocean yet has easy access to all areas.
The people on Green Turtle are what made our decision to live there easy. We have traveled the World and settled on this area as our home away from home. The convenience of getting from Colorado to GTC and home again in one day and not arriving totally exhausted was the clincher for us to settle here.
Exactly what we wanted, and then some. Green Turtle speaks for itself – so go ahead and read all the other rave reviews and just know they don’t begin to do it justice! Awesome setting, wonderful people, Quintessential Bahamas Out Islands. The key thing about the Cabana, it sets up the whole trip. The place was clean, spacious, and optimally located. We wanted for nothing. Everything in Green Turtle was within our grasp and effortless. You could not make a wrong turn or a bad decision. What a life it was to have a beautiful “base camp” to return to after our daily adventures. Even the afternoon thunderstorms were a joy as we watched them from the wrap around patio. Being able to explore the area then coming back to the Bluff House resort was sweet. Great first trip to Green Turtle. We’d do it all again exactly the same. It had been a few years since we visited the out islands, so returning with our 5 year old boy and reliving it this way was very special and something we actually scrutinized for months. Green Turtle delivered. Just to mention a few, of course Di and Eli were over the top accommodating and helpful, offering inside info and tips, usually unsolicited and always spot on. Carol Jean went beyond the call of duty – she was even kind enough to let us check out a little later which made all the difference as we soaked up our last morning and our boy blew off steam before the hop back over to the Mainland. Donny was the man, squeezing our last minute boat rental request in (and even coming to pick me up) before a doctor appointment. In a world gone mad, this place restores one’s faith in humanity. An extremely relaxing visit, just what we were looking for. The only unfortunate byproduct of this experience, set up as nicely as that as far out as that in a place as pristine as that…it tends to reset one’s standard on accommodations and you never want to settle for less. We’ll accept it for the beautiful thing it is and make the necessary attitude adjustments for the time being, but it won’t be easy. In the meantime we will look forward to returning and would like to thank Di and Eli again guys, from the bottom of our hearts for opening up your home to us for a few great memorable days in paradise! Regards, Becky, Bob, Bode.
Just returned from a week and this house is fantastic! House was super comfortable with a beautiful view of White Sound with the Bluff House Marina in the background. Perfect for two couples or a family and we ate every meal outside on the screen porch. The beach down the street a couple hundred yards away was really nice with tranquil water perfect for swimming.
House has everything you need to cook and direct tv was a nice touch after a long day on the water. We rented a boat for the entire week and it was great having the dock so close to the house. Beds were very comfortable, showers were hot, and overall a very enjoyable experience. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in keeping this house in great condition.
The owners were in constant contact prior to our departure and the caretaker was available to help if needed during our entire stay. Highly recommend this house and we'll definitely be back.
The house is everything you said it would be and then some! The layout is superb for two couples with king suites for each. The bathrooms are extremely well designed with lots of room and easy access. Everything is modern and up to date. The kitchen and dining area are nice and open, and similarly equipped with first class appliances. Everyone commented on how the house has been meticulously well maintained. Truly a first class experience.
Weather was dicey, as we expected in early February. There were only three really nice days and two lost to rain. By contrast, over a foot of snow fell at home during our stay, and temperatures hovered around zero. We did NOT want to go home!
For those who read this review, let me assure you that Coconut Cabana Villa is a steal. Private dock on a tranquil bay with a broad veranda view of the harbor. It do not get better than this!
Thank you Eli and Dianne for a memorable experience!

Can't ask for better location, with dock and perfect house for 2 couples. All the amenities and everything works. Extremely easy & accommodating renting arrangements from the owner to caretaker on island.
We have been repeat customers of the Coconut Cabana. And we have already reserved 2015 for two weeks. From the first time we rented there a few years ago we have really enjoyed staying there for it's its value, location, amenities, and owners that are a pleasure to deal with.
It's a very comfortable house for two couples, and even had a friend crash one night on the sleeper sofa last year that was visiting from Marsh Harbour and it got too late to return that day. With a split plan we have all the privacy we need, and cook in a lot so the well equipped kitchen is great for us.
Very conveniently located to Jolly Rogers bar and pool next door, and everything on Island is easy to get to by boat or golf cart.
Have always felt it to be a safe place for families and couples alike.
House had all the conveniences advertised and was very comfortable. Location is super. Pool and restaurant right next store and you can visit all the surrounding islands in a very short time as well as be out ocean fishing in minutes. Golf cart was a must for us and was affordable and easy to obtain. We docked our 31' open console behind the house (dock is in very good condition and depth was not an issue for us). Owners were super to work with! We will go back!
Green Turtle Cay is 160 miles East of Florida (approx. 1 hour by plane) to TCB or MHH airports located on Great Abaco. You take a taxi to the ferry dock (about 5 minutes from TCB and 45 from MHH) and then a water taxi to Green Turtle Cay (about 20 minutes). Getting there is half the fun. The Taxi ride should be around $10 from TCB and $90 from MHH and the ferry ride is $13/pp. The ferry will deliver you to the main ferry dock in New Plymouth where you will pick up the keys from Kool Kart Rentals. Kool Karts is located at the end of the dock. It is about a 15-20 minute drive to White Sound and the house. A 'Welcome Package' will be emailed to you when we receive a confirmation. It will include a detailed Island map, an aerial photo and information about the house and Green Turtle Cay.
NOTE: THERE IS NO AIRPORT ON GREEN TURTLE CAY!
