Property 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 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; 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.
