Description from the manager
Captain Sam Sawyer was an industrious Bahamian man who made his living from the sea. In his lifetime, he sponged and sharkfished. His colourful past even included rum running during prohibition... along with several other island men. He was a pioneer in the crawfishing industry which is second 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. His home which w...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
More than what we were looking for
How about this for a 1 sentence review of our stay on GTC at Capt Sams: Considering what to write here made me a little nostalgic for our vacation last month. So I must have had a good time.
Here are some specifics. Unless you want a beach or complete isolation, the property is located ideally. It's a 3 min walk to the groceries, a 30 sec walk to the ferry, and because the rental includes a golf cart, its located close to everywhere else on the island you might want to go.
Capt Sams is not luxurious- you won't confuse this property with the Four Seasons. It is however a clean and thoughtfully appointed home away from home. I self-cater, and the kitchen is very functional. The wifi is spotty in the afternoon, but it was at least as fast as my home connection in the morning and night. It sounds trivial, but there are lots of towels. We used a lot of them. Oh, there was a loaf of cocoanut bread waiting for us when we arrived. I recommend stocking up on this when you can.
Oddities: We didn't need the second bedroom. There is a backyard area that is a lot like a cage. We spent zero time there, although the clothes line was useful. One thing we would have liked to have had is an outdoor hose to rinse snorkel gear, but we were assured that the drain in the tub can handle sand.
