Captain Sam Sawyer was an industrious Bahamian man who made his living from the sea. Located on Bay Street in historic New Plymouth, his home was built in the 1950's and has been completely remodeled.

 

In his lifetime, Captain Sam sponged and shark fished.  His colorful past even included rum running during prohibition. He was a pioneer in the crawfishing (lobster) industry which is second only to tourism in the Bahamas today.  He had an 85' Coast Guard Vessel which was docked in front of his house. When he was not crawfishing, he and his wife Mary took fishing parties out on weekly excursions. They collected and sold seashells, sea fans, conch shells, starfish and coral (when it was legal to do so) to Florida Souvenir shops.

 

When you stay with us at Cap'n Sam's Cottage, you will feel the history!

 

Additional $100 cleaning fee will be charged upon checkout.

Green Turtle Cay is Fantastic!

We had never been to Bahamas before and we were a little intimidated about renting an unknown property in another country but the owners/staff of Capt. Sam house made it a breeze. We flew into Treasure Cay, took a 5 minute taxi ride to the Green Turtle Ferry, and a 10 minute ferry ride to the island.( Ferries are proudly reliable and frequent) and we were met at the dock by Marilyn and Sam to take us to the house which was only 100 yards away. They showed us the necessities of the house and got us our golf cart ( very helpful). House is nicely decorated and had all the luxuries of home like cable TV, wifi, air conditioning and cooking utensils. We took the golf cart to multiple gorgeous beaches daily and explored every nook and cranny of the island. Groceries were easily available although pricey compared to US. Many great restaurants to choose from. Being in New Plymouth was fun as we got to see all the goings on of the small town. Best part of the trip was how friendly all the GTC people are. We will be back!

Capt n' Sam's is out favorite place to stay on GTC; our 3rd year back & already reserved for 2018! Marilyn & her team are great host. Greeting us at the dock & helping us unload our boat. They had the house ready with fresh flowers, a/c running & golf cart ready to take off in. Freshly remodeled with nice nautical feel -- it was perfect. As always a/c was cold & comfortable beds after being out on the water. Walking distance to our favorite restaurants, shopping, site seeing & sun sets or take the cart to explore the island. Sat at the dock every night enjoying the views. Our 28 foot boat had no trouble getting in or out, even in low tide. Nice cleaning table to clean your catch of the day. The place to stay -- especially if you have a boat.

This is a wonderful house, dead in the middle of town. Everything works well. Bar b que is typical Bahamas, but works fine. The house is cute, yet functional for 4. We loved the personalized service from Marilyn too. Met us at the ferry dock (50 yards away)
