Green Turtle Cay house description

Long Bay House is directly on mile-long Long Bay Beach. 300 feet of this quiet beach is part of the estate. The house sits on a 20' high hill surrounded by 2 acres of landscaped tropical foliage, overlooking the beach. This large estate includes a large fresh water pool, an elevated beach gazebo with plenty of shade, and an observation tower 40' above sea level with spectacular views, especially of the sunset.

Long Bay House is located just outside the town of New Plymouth which you can get to by foot or in 4 minutes by golf cart. No long drive to stock up on provisions or to get to restaurants. Several marinas for your boat are also close by. Still, the house is over 250' from the road, accessed by its own private drive and shielded from the road by a dense growth of trees.

Long Bay House was built in 1949 by Captain Steven Cliff, Winston Churchill's WWII pilot. The recipient of a large land grant from the Queen of England, he situated his house on the highest point of land overlooking Long Bay Beach. While the house is positioned to catch the prevailing breezes, it is fully air conditioned just in case.

The house is an ideal rental for any couple that wants to get away from it all or up to 8 people who want lots of activity. The house has 2 master bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and separate bath. One of these bedrooms also has a small bunk room with two twin beds perfect for children, separated from the main bedroom by bi-fold doors. A third master bedroom with king size bed and bathroom is available in an adjacent, easily accessed cottage. Long Bay House rents as a 2 or 3 bedroom property. See our website at www.longbayhouse.com; you can see the house and pool on Google Earth at 26 45' 41' N and 77 19' 12' W. Unlike most beach houses on Green Turtle which are on subdivision type lots, this estate has no neighbors except for the cottage, which has its separate acre of land and access road.

Enjoy a day of swimming, snorkeling and relaxing on the beach, in the sun or the shade of the beach gazebo, and follow it up with a swim and perhaps a cocktail in the fresh water pool with built in seating. Before you head out to dinner be sure to watch the sunset from the observation tower. When you return, take a few moments to sit and enjoy the stars.

                        We totally enjoyed our stay at Long Bay House. The house, grounds, pool and beach were just as we expected. Our contact Mary Lowe was the best and she was a pleasure to work with on this stay. We have already booked a week next August for a return visit.

                        No one wanted to leave! It was just the best!!! The house exceeded our expectations. Pictures did reflect all the space, comfort, privacy and useability that our family was looking for a two week stay!! One son and family were there for one week, and our other son and family spent the second. My grandchildren all raved that it was the best vacation they had ever had!!! There is no one EVER better than Mary to help you. She went above and beyond for our ENTIRE family as family members did have difficulty getting there because of a tropical storm that moved across Florida. The Pool was just fabulous and we spent as much time in it as we did the ocean. A REAL PLUS for a summer stay. We rented a boat from Ronnie's Boat Rental and had a big time. Mary will arrange a fabulous golf cart for you also, by the way. We always do a" Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" food tour wherever we go and rate our favorites. McIntosh's won for breakfast, pastries, homemade coconut bread, and dinner......You must try Denise's Souse Chicken for breakfast or lunch! Wrecking Tree won for lunches! The location of this property to town is very handy as well. There are three grocery stores in New Plymouth. Try all three and you will find pretty much a good selection of things you may need. Another favorite with this property is the Observation Tower. We never missed a sunrise in two weeks, either from the tower or the wonderful chickee closes (gazebos) on the beach in front of the house. Would highly recommend this property! The grounds are just beautiful.

                        Recommended for: Tourists without a car, pet owners, families with young children, age 55+, adventure seekers, families with teenagers.

                        Manager response: Thank you very much for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed Long Bay House. You are right, Mary is the best.

                        This was our 5th return to our favorite piece of paradise, GTC, and we have now found our favorite home to rent! (Although I'm reluctant to type this in fear that Long Bay House will become so popular it won't be available when we want to return!) Truly such a comfortable beach house with plenty of room! We only needed 2 bdrms for 5 of us! 2 adults and 3 kids who enjoyed their own "kid's suite!." I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the screened in lanai! Every meal eaten outdoors with no bugs! The sound of the ocean at night, a beach that feels like your very own and a beautiful pool that's perfect even on the windiest day! You can't beat the location of this home-so close to town, and yet, when you return via golf cart, you pull back into your own piece of paradise where you feel like you're the only people on the island! We can't wait to return, and I better email Mary our dates before Long Bay House becomes the most popular rental!

                        The Long Bay House could not have suited us better as a family of 6 adults and one 4 year old child! The layout was ideal with 3 master suites plus an adjoining room for our grand-son, and plenty of common space. The views of the water from the lovely screened porch, and the observation tower and beach deck, were spectacular! We had the lovely sand beach all to ourselves and used the pool occasionally; each time we explored with our golf carts we were so happy to return to the "best house, best beach, and best views"on the Island! Green Turtle is truly a tiny, quiet Island that is perfect for a peaceful getaway. Some of us went bone fishing (and successfully caught the fish!) and we tried most restaurants on the Island with the Green Turtle Club being our favorite. We will return, Long Bay House! Thank you, Mary, for your guidance and hospitality!

                        Outstanding property with everything we expected. My wife and I were looking for a quiet secluded beach front property. The house and property were beautiful and spacious. The beach view was incredible. There were very few people on a mile long beach of white sand and turquoise water. The property manager, was fabulous...great instructions, set up our golf cart and groceries, met us for dinner one night, and was available all week as needed. The photos were very descriptive of the setting, house was very clean and well maintained, the pool was very nice, and we are already planning our return visit.

                        What a great place to relax and enjoy tranquil island living. This large property has so much to offer - two houses, beachfront, gardens, a pool, and close proximity to New Plymouth. I am looking forward to returning with my family as soon as possible!

                        Our stay at Long Bay House was true paradise. The views from the house are spectacular and the ocean breezes relaxing. Beautiful white sand beach, private and secluded. A dream to stay there. Very comfortable furnishings. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet getaway with pristine beaches. Very hospitable town as well with good restaurants and island nightlife.

                        I had the privilege of being one of the first visitors to the Long Bay House. The house itself is beautiful, open and airy and comfortable. The view is breathtaking, the beach and property are beautiful and if you feel like getting out of the sand, they have one of the few houses with a pool. There is also a watch tower from which you can see just about the entire Island. I hope to go back next year with my whole family. There is plenty to do there or nothing at all, depends on your preference. Sightsee from a golf cart, snorkel, dive, fishing, boating or just laying around. The island is beautiful.

                        I spent a long weekend at the Long Bay House and it was absolutely perfect. The setting is something out of a movie. The home is right on the beach and the beach is very private. The home is stocked with everything you need. There is lots of room for more then one family or a girls weekend get away. The locals are very welcoming. I would highly recommend this home for a romantic get away, a group get away or for a family that enjoys boating and swimming.

                        After a recent stay at Long Bay House, I had to write. Long Bay House is such a beautiful place! We will definitely be back and for longer next time. First, it was easy to get to the house - especially if you fly in to Treasure Cay. Second, the size of the grounds made you feel like you were on your own island and not just a short golf cart trip from town. Finally, the beach frontage at the house was spectacular. There are a lot of places that have a rocky shoreline on the Atlantic side of Green Turtle Cay, but Long Bay House has the most beautiful stretch of pristine white sand I have ever seen. Of course, you can always swim in the pool which is also magnificent - and salt water, too, so no chlorine smell to ruin the atmosphere. One comment - I would say that if you were coming with two families with children that you will want to rent both the main house and the cottage since the second bedroom and bunkroom in the main house do not afford enough privacy for the adults from the kids. There is plenty for the kids to do just hanging around the house and grounds but trips in town would be fun as well. Loved it - will definitely be back!
