About Mandy Roberts

I am a Canadian married to a local Green Turtle Crawfisherman . I met Dale while cruising the Abaco's back in the early 1990's . We built our 2 story home and raised 2 boys, living a simple but fulfilling life surrounded by this beautiful small island community , close to the sea with all the beauty it holds. We are more than happy to impart local knowledge to make your stay the best it can be .

Mandy Roberts purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Mandy Roberts chose Green Turtle Estates

Dale's roots are in Green Turtle Cay , his paternal side goes back to the Loyalists , and his family still lives here . We picked this location to build because it is located in the middle of the Island , by the beach, quieter than Town and yet close to everything in either direction. Our extended family run the Shipyard down the road , the Suite is an ideal location for those working on their boats .

What makes this apartment unique

The Turquoise Sea Suite is an affordable , cosy one bedroom 450 sq. ft. apartment , located on the first floor of our home but with privacy of it's own and surrounded by trees . We live upstairs on the opposite side of the house , work full-time , enjoy our privacy too, but are certainly on hand to chat with , help you with any queries , problems , advice or local knowledge to make your stay enjoyable . When the seas are calm our beach has a sweet reef along the shore ideal for beginners to snorkel on.

Pictures Cannot Describe How Wonderful this Place Is

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I just spent just spent six nights here and we cannot say enough good things about it! The size was more than ample for two people, and Mandy did a wonderful job making us feel right at home. She had a fresh loaf of coconut bread waiting on us when we arrived, and she was quick to provide answers to any and all questions we had about the apartment and the island. The kitchen is well stocked, the bed is comfortable, and she keeps everything so clean! We will definitely be back (and hopefully soon)

Already Planning a Return Trip

  • 5 of 5

The apartment exceeded our expectations. It provided a private, comfortable base to enjoy Green Turtle Cay. The furnishings were great, but I was most impressed with the thought they put into other items. We enjoyed the new beach chairs and small coolers on our day trips around the island. It's described as a two minute walk, but you can be on the beach in half that time and never see another person. Mandy went above and beyond to maximize our stay. It was easily the best experience I've had renting through VRBO.

adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so adorably decorated with amazing attention to detail. AC and fans kept us totally comfortable. Tv works well and movie selection suited us great. It has everything you'll need for fantastic time, including Mandy. She is friendly but allows lots of privacy and is very very helpful.

Fantastic. Truly a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

As stated above we were so impressed with this true "Sea Suite". I almost hate too rate this property so high, I need to keep it a secret. Centrally located and private.

Mandy was an incredibly gracious and informative host.

Can't wait to return.

Perfect place to get away from reality

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from my second stay at the Turquoise Sea Suite and it was every bit as wonderful as the first. We had nine days full of bonefish, shells, snorkeling, and boating, and neither of us is ready to return to reality. Mandy and Dale are perfect hosts and will not hesitate to do all they can to ensure your stay is as good as possible. We will be back!

Voted Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is ideal, walk one minute to the ocean beach, close enough to town to run errands but removed enough to be secluded. Quick access to any part of the island!

The private entrance is beautiful surrounded with mature trees, nice porch with hose to wash sand off etc.

It was very clean and comfortable, the tile shower was really nice, the bed is comfortable, kitchen well supplied. Satellite TV worked great and the WIFI was reliable! There’s even plenty of good books!

The hosts Mandy and Dale are super nice, and were available to answer questions etc, but also respect your space.

Overall an excellent experience and we will definitely be staying here again!

Thank You!

Evan and Jenna

The best flight selections are to Marsh Harbour 28 miles away , however flights from Ft. L. are available into Treasure Cay 5 miles away . Both require a taxi to the Harbour , and a 10 minute Ferry ride to our Island . We will happily pick you up from the town Ferry or you can rent a golf cart for your stay . Green Turtle Cay is a Loyalist Out Island in the true Bahamas , unspoiled but full of fun activities for those who love getting away from it all . The Island is 3 miles long and we are in the middle of easy access to everything : miles of empty beaches, stunning coral reef diving , deep sea & fly fishing , the local village , Museum , 3 grocery shops , 2 hardwares , 12 places to eat , 10 bars , live entertainment , 4 churches , gift shops , dive shop , golf cart , bicycle and small boat rentals , boating excursions , marinas , a shipyard , a library , post office and even a ye olde gaol , tiny Green Turtle Cay has it all .
