About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Peaceful Times House on Green Turtle Cay is located on the hillside overlooking Coco Bay and the Sea of Abaco. This comfortable house is very private surrounded by a canopy of native trees, yet located withing one minute to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and the Sea of Abaco. Please note that this house is a ONE rental unit as the downstairs area is simply a basement.

The house is also close to all the amenities of the Green Turtle Club and Marina and Brendals Dive Center. Golf cart and boat rentals can be arranged and there is free dockage for your use on Coco Bay. Offshore and flats fishing guides are also available.

Enjoy breakfast and sunset views from the large fully screened porch which includes a dining table with six chairs and two chaise loungers. It is also a great place to read a book or watch the hummingbirds and Abaco parrots fly by.

The historic settlement of New Plymouth is located fifteen minutes away with restaurants, grocery stores, and other stores.

About The Owner

We are Paul and Diane Gerson, owners of Peaceful Times. We have been visiting Green Turtle Cay for over 25 years. When the opportunity to purchase land and construct a home arrived, we made the decision to build and never looked back.

We still find Green Turtle Cay to be our favorite place for the true island experience. It is not a pre-packaged vacation experience rather a real island where people live, work, and welcome travelers with open arms.

We would encourage anyone to visit us to enjoy the ocean, food, and beauty of this most wonderful island.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

We are in a very private setting yet so convenient to the beaches and other amenities.

Peaceful Times was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property! The property manager met us at the dock and took us to the house when we arrived and did it again when we left. The house has everything that you need and is very well kept. The furnishings are tropical and perfect for our beach rental. The island is amazing- we loved everything about it! You definitely need a golf cart to get around the island. Coco Beach near the home was our favorite beach on the island. I would definitely recommend the owners, property managers and home to everyone!

wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at Peaceful Times for a week and couldn't have been happier with the rental. The place was spotless when we arrived and was equipped with absolutely everything you could need for a beach vacation. There's a washer/dryer, dish washer and central AC and while we've been at many places in the Bahamas without those amenities and been perfectly fine, we were very excited by these perks. The kitchen here is genuinely the best stocked that I've ever seen which made it easy to cook a few simple meals at home without having to buy a ton of supplies. The rental also has a really great layout, two large separate bedrooms with their own bathroom, and a spacious living/dining room area -- the high ceilings throughout add to the roomy feel. The patio is fully screened in which, with the exception of the patio door which is a bit tricky to close, makes it a mosquito/bug free area to relax on. I suppose if I had to pick something that wasn't perfect it would be the driveway/entrance to the property which is quite steep and bumpy but the golf cart we rented handled it without any problems so we quickly got used to the journey up and down the hill. The location of the property is also perfect as far as we were concerned. It's just steps away from Coco Bay on the one side and Ocean Beach on the other and just a 10 minute drive into town. I can say without a doubt that if we come back to Green Turtle Cay we'll definitely be looking to stay at Peaceful Times again!

Lovely small cottage, perfect for two couples, nice porch, private setting, pity there is no water view but Coco Beach is close by. Fair price for house rental. .Morning roosters were wonderful !!

Owner's Response: Glad that you enjoyed your stay. We also would hope for a better view, but trees sometimes have other ideas. The house is therefore priced accordingly. Paul and Diane Gerson/ owners

Great house for our family of four

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, well kept and comfortable for our family. The location is convenient and provided easy access to all the island locations with the golf cart we rented. If you don't need to be right on the beach and are looking for a nice house, Peaceful Times is an excellent choice.

Pros:

Clean well furnished and had all the amenities we needed

Accessible beaches and activities without having to pay a premium of being on the water

Felt like home

Can park golf cart inside overnight

Ample room in the house and out on the decks

Easy check-in & Check-out

Cons:

A section of the driveway is a little rough, but the golf cart handled it without a problem

Roosters on the island make noise at night. We kind of liked it, but it may drive other guests crazy

Owner's Response: As owners, we are happy that you enjoyed your visit to Green Turtle Cay, and that Peaceful Times House met your needs. Keeping a house in the out islands is always a challenge, but one that is well worth the effort. We have always loved the island for the things it does NOT have: crowds, pollution, crime, etc. And yes, the roosters are part of the experience.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear this, but it would be nice to know what the issue with the house might have been, since most of our recent guests appear to have been quite happy with their stay. Thanks, Paul and Diane Gerson/ owners

Beautiful setting!

  • 3 of 5

The only negative about this property is the lack of electricity during our stay. It would be off for hours ( we only were there to sleep since our family were in another house located on the water). You never knew when it would go off & when it might come back on. The other house only lost power a couple of times .for a short while.

Owner's Response: Yes, we understand that the loss of power from the electric company can be frustrating. Our house, like most rental properties, does not have a back up generator. However, we manage to work around the problem during those times that the power goes off on the island. Hopefully, our guests will manage to do the same while still enjoying their visit. Thank you, Paul and Diane Gerson/ owners
