My life has been anything but ordinary.

Restaurants, offices, trucks, construction and massage are a few of the many vocations I have had.

My son is 30, studying for his PHD in New Zealand for the next 3 years. I now live in, Waterville, NH. and have semi retired. Self employment is a wonderful thing. Short term rentals are the best way to share this beautiful island home, and have the flexibility to work at my own convenience.

Gail Schofield purchased this villa in 2005

After dreaming of a house on the beach for a long time,

I found this piece of land and started building my home.

It was an adventure to be sure, being alone and single, but it was worth it 10 months later when it was finished. Life changed my plans to stay, so I headed back to Cape Cod where I finished massage school.

It was even more quiet then, just a few grocery stores, one water fountain, and 2 good restaurants. The one priceless quality, is that you are the only one walking the perfectly beautiful beach.. along with the occasional cow. It's still just as secluded, tho there may be more homes on the north stretch of beach soon.

This home has been a rental since 2005, and I visit as often as I can. This is the second season as a short term rental.

.

I find that I still love the same things about this island and my home as I did when I first came here.

Every evening at the same time, I would stop everything and sit on the back porch to watch the sun go down. It's different here. Mesmerizing. In the morning I can't wait to get up before the sun rises. Clean air, water, and quiet. When you walk the beach it's your own private island. Now that I have had last spring to fix up every little thing, it's perfect.

Now I wish I could stay....

Grand Turk still has something no other island on earth has..

sandcastles

  • 4 of 5
The property was exactly as listed : very quiet, private and relaxing. We walked the beaches every day , very enjoyable. We were met at the airport, arrangements were made for a car, and Gail's recommendations were really good, we ate at a different restaurant every night.The restaurant choices are limited, however and this is not an island for those seeking nightlife. It appears that scuba and snorkeling diving are the main draws. We were very happy with Sandcastles and Grand Turk for the lack of typical tourist attractions. I recommend the Bohio dive resort for snorkeling and dinner.

We used the bikes every day for the shorter trips, we were surprised at how many of the residents greeted us, either by a wave or hello. Grand Turk offers subtle attractions, beyond the beaches, found by walking or biking around the island. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get away from it all.

Sandcastles - quiet

  • 4 of 5
We spent most of our time on Grand Turk under the water. The scuba diving is amazing. Grand Turk Diving has great dive masters and guides and can accommodate divers and snorkelers.
Sandcastles is about a 15 minute bike ride to the center of town (and the dive outfitters). Two bikes were provided at the house. These are 'island bikes' - the are functional for a 7 mile island, but not as comfortable as your own bike. Grand Turk is a quiet island altogether, and the north end of the island, where Sandcastles is located, is even more quiet.
Sandcastles was clean and had all the basic amenities for you to make your stay on Grand Turk your own personalized adventure or quiet retreat. The beach is quiet with little activity which means the sand is also not groomed. (If you are looking for resort accommodations and vacation packages, I recommend Bohio Resort.) The beach by the house is also very hot as there is no shade. There is a nice porch on the back of the house facing the water where you can enjoy shade and a cool breeze. It it is difficult to swim at low tide near the house due to the shallow water and coral, rocks, seagrass, urchins, and other threats to soft feet. The snorkeling was not great directly in front of the house, but I was able to see a stingray, a few reef fish, and plenty of conch at about a 20 foot depth. A dive outfitter can take you to more impressive snorkeling/diving locations on the same stretch of shoreline. Overall, I recommend staying at this house because it allows you to have the freedom to explore the island at your own pace or to just hide in quiet place.
Gail was extremely helpful and attentive to the needs of her house and house guests.

Sandcastles Awesome

  • 4 of 5
If you are not familiar with Grand Turk it is a very relaxed pace and "sandcastles" is the same. It is located on the far north end of the island and is somewhat isolated although you do have a few neighbours. You are directly on the beach with a 25 minute walk both north and south. The southern walk will take you to the "Bohio" resort where the food is excellent with a very nice tiki bar for drinks.
The property is a one bedroom with a pull out couch. Wifi, satellite tv, 4 pc bath. The owner, Gail Schofield, is very helpful, before we booked as well as during our stay. She has someone pick you up at the airport, Valentine, who also waited while we shopped for groceries. He also checked on us a few times during the month.
Wild donkeys, horses and cows showed up in the yard on more than one occasion.
Completely harmless!
I was able to snorkel on a daily basis, depending on wind. Eagle ray, barracuda, and all the other tropical fish. Fantastic scuba as well.
I would highly recommend.
