Just back from a lovely stay at Sandcastles! First time in GT (have been to Provo). Loved my holiday. The owner, Gail, was great to communicate with and emailed a helpful info book. She'll also help set you up with transport from the airport. She's quick to answer any questions. And listen to her advise on the supermarkets and when the boat comes in with fresh veg/fruit. Def pick up bottled water & anything else needed before arriving at the house. The house is a bit north of the "main drag" & so that qualifies as remote for GT. The nearest action was Bohio - maybe 20 plus min relaxed beach walk away? The house has good bones - it's not fancy but there are also no fancy, upscale hotels that I found on the island. And those accommodations are probably 2x or more per night so I really enjoyed being independent; what made it- the location & the great price. Opening up the house front to back was wonderful during the day with a brilliant breeze. The water out front was so lovely and diverse; little pools, grassy areas, rocks, gorgeous colors to the water - it's not a swimming beach but beautiful to walk & explore. So many great shells and got to see a few sea turtles popping up. Rarely was there anyone else. You can swim closer to Bohio. Their food/drink prices are a bit higher than other restaurants on the main strip but their snapper & salads are delish. I would recommend a car rental for at least part of the time if you aren't into biking. Did take taxis - about $20 to get anywhere. As a New England girl who grew up with the true cottages on the coast, this place reminds me of my childhood. The towels are a bit worn, the metal door has suffered with the salt, there's a little mish mash of stuff. Things like that were fine for me because otherwise it's well equipped and again, the price is great. We could cook. There were coffee makers. I can drink my wine out of a regular glass instead of a wine glass - more fun for me. And I know you should never turn on a tv on vacation but there's a small flat screen with DVD player so I brought down Game of Thrones 5 to prep for season 6.
