About Greg Turton

I live in Cordele, Georgia with my wife, Lori, and our three children. In college, I received my bareboat captain's license. Once married, Lori and I chartered catamarans with other couples and enjoyed several trips exploring Florida, the Abacos and BVI. In the late 1990's, when our children were small, I obtained my pilot's license. We had both grown up in south Georgia and mainly vacationed on the Atlantic and Gulf beaches of Florida. But, there was something special about the clear blue water and uncrowded beaches of the Abacos. We had explored most of the out-island communities by boat, but Guana Cay stood out as our favorite. In 2005, we bought a lot and built our first house, 'Grandview', (VRBO # 147806) a 3 bed/3 bath house on the Atlantic side of Guana that is about 300 yds from Nipper's. Our children were 8, 6, and 1 and have had the awesome opportunity of growing up visiting Guana on holidays and in the summer. The community of locals and second homeowners on Guana feels like family. In 2012, we bought and remodeled this house, 'Seaside'. We have kept a boat on this dock for years and have enjoyed countless sunsets from this spot. Today in 2018, Mary, 21, Stephen, 19, and Mitchell, 13, have never tired of traveling to Guana Cay. We enjoy bringing family and friends and showing them around this magical place. We invite you to enjoy our house during your vacation. Please contact either of us with your questions about our house, Guana Cay and the Abacos. We love to talk about the Bahamas!

Greg Turton purchased this house in 2012

Why Greg Turton chose Great Guana Cay

The construction of 'Seaside' was completed in 2012. We purchased this property because of it's view and access to a large dock. If I were purchasing a lot on Guana today, I would choose this same area. It is the perfect distance from the settlement. In this area, Guana Cay is about 1/2 mile wide. It is only a short walk to the Atlantic Ocean side of the island where you will find a 3 mile stretch of sandy beach.

What makes this house unique

One of the few houses that offers the use of a washer and dryer for house guests. 'Seaside' overlooks Fisher's Bay. Sailboats come in and anchor throughout the day. There is not a better view of the Sea of Abaco and the sunset than from our back deck!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

Our two families of 4 adults and 7 children had a blast. Kitchen was a good size and well stocked for us to cook for 11, after stocking up at grocery in Marsh Harbor. Kids enjoyed the double bunk bed room. Dock was perfect for the boat we rented from Marsh Harbor. Golf Cart rentals through "Everything Guana" were awesome for exploring the island the and 5 minute ride to town. Kids enjoyed swimming off the dock as we packed the boat in the morning preparing for our daily adventures. Also the beachfront on Guana was beautiful and a 5 minute golf cart ride away. Ready to come back!

Fantastic Island Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned after 8 nights at Seaside with the family. Seaside was perfect for us (Mom & Dad, Son, Daughter and Son-in-Law). We all had our own space and the views are absolutely fabulous! The most beautiful sunsets you will ever see! The house was perfect for us, it was very comfortable and had all the conveniences of home. We enjoyed doing a little fishing off the dock behind the house and enjoyed seeing a number of nurse sharks, sting rays and we even saw a beautiful large spotted eagle ray one day!

When we travel to the Caribbean, we like to stay on small not commercialized islands. Guana was perfect! A few good places to eat (our favorite was Orchid Bay), grocery store, liquor store, dive shop, and a couple of places to shop. What else do you need?! It's the perfect island getaway if you want to spend you time playing on the water during the day and relaxing at home in the evening!

The water around Guana is absolutely amazing! Crystal clear absolutely beautiful water! We did have a boat (you can rent one at the dive shop) and enjoyed reef fishing, snorkeling (TONS of amazing spots) and checking out other islands - some inhabited, some not!

We look forward to the opportunity to return to Seaside to enjoy Guana Cay again!

We had the most wonderful vacation on Guana Cay and highly recommend Seaside to anyone looking for the perfect getaway. The island is beautiful, the people friendly. The owner of the property is superbly accommodating, the beach inviting, and the nearby restaurants delicious and entertaining. If you want the perfect Bahamian vacation spot, this is for you! You won't be disappointed!

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here with my wife, my teenage son and two of his friends. This was an incredible experience. The boys can't wait to go back. The island is beautiful - spectacular actually - and the accommodations were perfect. Seaside is very clean and comfy. Even though you are on a remote island you have all the features of home - internet - TV - great kitchen. We fished, swam and went snorkeling and enjoyed Nippers and Grabbers. My wife took several books and spent the days on the unbelievably beautiful beach lounging and reading. Everybody was happy - Happy Wife - Happy teenage boys - made for a memorable vacation and a husband that looked like a hero for finding Guana and Seaside!
