We stayed at Aquamarine Beach houses in Sanddune Villa balcony level during the last week of August. We chose TCI because it looked beautiful and we discovered that they do not get a great deal of rain during the summer months. We chose Aquamarine because we wanted: to snorkle right from the beach, a location that is convenient but away from the busy hotel action and a comfortable suite with a full kitchen. We got all of that and more. As beautiful as ABH looked online, the property,the beach and the beach houses are even more so. The beach is incredible with warm calm water and the reef is right there. We could actually see the reef from our balcony. If you are into snorkleing this is the place to go. At ABH all you have to do is go out to the beach go left, or go right, or go straight ahead into the water and you can snorkle for as long as you want on the healthy and vibrant reef along Grace Bay Beach.
The location was perfect for us. It was quiet, yet only a very short beach walk away from the the hotel and resort action. As well, it was an easy walk, to the IGA. We timed it at 9 minutes, The IGA has everything that you could want and the prices are really not too high at all except perhaps for junk food .
We were very spoiled by our stay in Sanddune Villa. It was spacious and clean and built to promote a refreshing ocean breeze. The bedrooms had air con as well as a ceiling fan so we were cool and comfortable at night as well. I cannot think of a single thing that we were lacking in the kitchen or living room, as it was fully equiped and very organized. No matter which suite you stay in you will find that you are right there on the beach with everything that you need.
But if you do need anything at all Paula and John are there with all the answers. Really, they are, though you may not see them! They are an amazing host and hostess team who have the knack of making you feel at home in what is, in fact, their home, yet with the privacy that you do not have at the usual hotel property.
We rented a car from Scooter Bob's for two days only. The first day we drove around the island and explored. We kept the car for a second day after discovering Long Bay Hills Beach. We went back there and spent the day swimming in the waves. It is perhaps a twenty minute drive from ABH and well worth it.
The rest of the days we spent in around ABH and Grace Bay Beach snorkling, swimming in the pool and lounging on the balcony of Sanddune Villa soaking up the sunshine, the view and the salt in the air.
We are already planning our next trip to TCI and and Aquamarine Beach Houses. Go there. You will love it.
Sanddune Villa balcony suite has an unbelievable view.
