Luxuriously decorated 3 bedroom home on Gillam Bay.
Sandy Bay sits on Gillam Bay, one of the most beautiful locations on the island. This beach is renowned for it's white sandy beach and water that goes from turquoise, to teal to aqua blue. It is also known locally as "shell beach", and everyday you will see people combing the shoreline for sand dollars and shells of every color. The property is approximately a 10 minute walk to the historic town of New Plymouth, where you can enjoy the local restaurants, grocery stores, local museum and gift shops.
The upstairs has a large open living area with kitchen and dining room. There are 3 french doors that lead off this room onto a 12 foot wide, 40 foot long screened in porch.

We stayed at sandy bay for 4 days before traveling to Spanish cay. The house is set back from any roads so it's very quiet. The rooms are large and very comfortable . The AC was nice and cold, great to relax after a long day on your private beach. The house has all the feel of being at home with a large flat screen TV and stereo . Not that we watched any TV. The kitchen is well equipped with all the pots and pans need to cook all your meals. The washer and dryer was also a great feature. The house is a short golf cart ride into town or to pineapples. The screened in porch faces the ocean and is a great place to enjoy your coffe in the morning or a cold kalik at night. This house has all you need to enjoy your time on GTC. We can't wait to return.
My wife and I have been staying at Sandy Bay in January for each of the last 8 years. We look forward to our visit every year. The setting is absolutely beautiful overlooking Gilliam Bay with spectacular morning sunrises. We can walk to the flats where we bonefish every day (January is a great month for the larger bonefish). We share the upper level with another couple. The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable, each with an adjoining bath and the living room/dining area/kitchen provide a large space, covering the length of the house. The washer and dryer are very convenient, allowing us to pack lightly. We love to sit on the screened porch along the front of the house, especially in the early morning and when we have meals in at night. Sandy Bay is very conveniently located close to town and just a short golf cart ride from the Green Turtle Club. I can't believe we only come once a year. It is a perfect vacation spot for us!
