I really enjoyed my stay at the Beach Shack. It's definitely not a shack as it is completely upgraded and renovated. Comfortable king bed, fully equipped kitchen, and everything you need. Just a short jaunt (5 min) to the best beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Breathtaking water and sunsets, sharks teeth and shells. Shopping and restaurants close by. I would highly recommend booking. I will definitely be back!

Our stay at the beach shack was perfect. There is nothing that is forgotten here. It’s completely like being at home. From coffee to shampoo to beautiful decor. The owners took great care of marking sure all our needs were met. Would I stay here again? We are planning our next trip now. Our happy place!

We absolutely loved it!! Heather and Rod you have done an amazing job with both units. They come with everything you can imagine. Just bring your bathing suits and tooth brush. It’s walking distance to the beach. They have beach chairs, umbrellas and even a carriage to stroll all these to the beach. We will definite be back. Love love loved it!!! Thanks Heather and Rod!!!

I am in Turtle Cay! I cannot express my joy and pleasure. Your artistic sensibilities and your beautiful hospitality are wonderful!! I have been relegated to some barebone, 1970s-last-renovation places for ten nights going in this unusually busy season….Turtle Cay is a treasure for my journey!!! Thank you for all the special effort - I want you to know it will be immensely appreciated by me for the next two nights. I am a sojourning artist and it feels like home 😊
