Green Turtle Cove
Green Turtle Cove on Hutchinson Island
The Green Turtle Cove Condominium Complex is located just South of the Jensen Beach Causeway on Hutchinson Island in Martin County Florida. It lies directly across the street from the public beach in Jensen beach with guarded beaches, a snack bar and beach volleyball courts. Also, soon to break ground is a new luxury resort to be built on the grounds of the old Holiday Inn, also across the street.
Green Turtle cove consists of two 40 unit buildings. The South building was completed in 1973 and the North building shortly after in 1974. This complex in on the shores of the Indian River (Intracoastal Waterway) and has docks which are available to residents on a first come first served basis for the nominal fee of $25.00 a month. There’s also a lake on the grounds as well as a swimming pool, vehicle wash area and BBQ stations.
Each building has secured entry through a lobby and has elevator service to the four stories. There is reserved parking as well as an ample supply of guest spots. Each unit is 2 bedroom and 2 bath with 1,204 sq. ft. of living space under air and a generous balcony with views of either the lake, preserve, river and some with peaks of the ocean.
No pets are permitted in Green Turtle Cove, though there are liberal rental rules allowing part time residents to lower their cost of ownership by leasing out their condo for a few months a year. As of this writing, Condo and management fees are $420 per month (as of July 2016).
Currently Green Turtle Cove is one of the more affordable condos for those wishing both river and ocean access. (I’m told there is great fishing right from the private docks.)
July 2016 update: An upscale resort hotel is scheduled to open in late 2016 or early 2017 across the street on the ocean side.
