Idlewild South is a beautifully furnished two bedroom, two bath cottage located on a picturesque peninsula at the entrance to Green Turtle Cay’s White Sound. This cozy home includes a sleeper sofa to comfortably accommodate a total of 6 people. Rates listed are nightly (3 night minimum) for 4 people and include the use of a rented 17 ft. Boston Whaler. There is a discount for weekly and monthly visits.
While the home is on a peninsular that is attached to the island, there is no golf cart access directly to the house. While this adds to the privacy, it means that the house is only accessible by boat. Because of this, we offer a rental 17 ft. Boston Whaler included in the price, which makes the total package a great value! The Green Turtle Cay Ferry can also pick you up and bring you right to our dock, based on their schedule. If you would like to get around the island by golf cart, you can rent one and keep it at the nearby Green Turtle Club or The Bluff House.
This romantic vacation rental offers the utmost in seclusion and privacy. It is truly a boaters destination with a 50 foot dock at your front door. Idlewild South offers unparalleled water views on both sides of the house with the colors constantly changing. Enjoy quiet, peaceful sunrises over the front dock and vibrant, colorful sunsets from the back deck facing the Sea of Abaco. Vacationing here is almost like having your own private island with all the conveniences of three nearby resorts (with pools, bars and award-winning restaurants) and the main in-town settlement just a short boat ride away.
Accented by the natural beauty of teak floors, high ceilings, a screened-in porch and an abundance of sliding glass doors, Idlewild South offers a calming view of the gorgeous ocean from every room. Fully equipped with everything you would expect in a vacation home rental, there is a high-definition large screen TV with internet programming, the ability to use your cell phone with Wi-Fi for free calling, a gas barbecue grill and a fully equipped, very modern galley kitchen. Both bedrooms have outdoor decks, private bathrooms, with the master bedroom offering a queen-sized bed and the guest room offers two twin beds which can be made into a king-size bed if desired.
