Beach Villa Sandstone has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and is located right on the beach at the quiet western end of Grace Bay, which begins almost at your back door and extends for 12 miles along this world-famous shoreline. This house and prime site used to be known as 'Smith House', but it burned several years ago and the present house was built in 1999. Houses are no longer allowed to be built this close to the beach, but this house was allowed to be rebuilt on the original site right at the sands edge.
Just outside the back door is the famous Smith's Reef, a colorful tropical reef teeming with abundant sea life. Here you can simply wade out from shore and snorkel on one of the best reefs in the country. Note: with the coral reef so close to the shore, a rocky strip exists between the sandy beach and the water in this immediate area, but having various easy access points into the water.
Beach Villa Sandstone is surrounded by a shaded deck. You can relax on your deck and see and hear the waves lap right in front of you. From the deck too, you can watch luxury yachts sail past and see spectacular sunsets in the evenings!
Once you leave this idyllic setting, you will find six restaurants, all within easy walking distance. You can also walk to dive operations, fishing charters, limited shopping, and activities around Turtle Cove, its marina and Yacht Club. Although Beach Villa Sandstone is built right on the beach and only steps from the ocean, it has a beautiful pool for your enjoyment too. The pool is surrounded by spacious decks where you can soak up the sun. There are also shaded areas and an area that's perfect for alfresco dining, while enjoying those magnificent views.
Beach Villa Sandstone has, in typical Caribbean style, a large, open-plan living area, which combines the kitchen, dining room and living room. The living area is comfortable and tastefully decorated. The high ceiling creates a cooling and exceptionally spacious atmosphere. The dining area is just as spacious and offers beautiful views of the pool and the ocean beyond. Beach Villa Sandstone's light and airy kitchen is fully equipped with all modern amenities for your comfort and pleasure.
This beautifully decorated, spacious bedroom has a king sized bed, bathroom, cable TV and patio doors opening onto the deck and affording beautiful views of the ocean. There are two bedrooms on the same level as the living area. All the bedrooms at Beach Villa Sandstone have their own private bathrooms and cable TV. Note: the three bedrooms at beach level have private outside entrances and do not connect to the interior of the upper level.
Nb: With the coral reef so close to the shore, a strip of rock exists between the sandy beach and the water. We suggest wearing water shoes as the rock can sometimes be slippery.

Just outside Beach Villa Sandstone's back door is famous Smith's Reef, a colorful tropical reef teeming with abundant sea life. Here you can simply wade out from shore and snorkel on one of the best reefs in the Turks and Caicos Islands. By the way, the Turks and Caicos Islands have one of the largest coral reef systems in the world!
overall, a nice house in a good location. while you need a car, you can walk to a few restaurants and coffee bars. the house itself is spacious, with a wrap around veranda porch, nice pool, and easy access to the beach. The beach itself is rocky, and not as nice as the grace bay beach, but snorkeling is available right here.
the kitchen is well stocked, rooms are spacious, and the area is quiet.
the lower rooms are dark, and don't have wifi, but otherwise come well equipped.
overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay again!
Snuba features a cross between diving and snorkeling. No license required, fully supervised.
We are also walking distance from the local glass bottom submarine which sails from the Marina.
