Sandy Point, Great Camanoe
Living on the Water! Beachfront Home on Great Camanoe with a Dock
Privateers Estate,Great Camanoe
The world has gone entirely mad! Escape to the British Virgin Islands and live the dream.
On the island of Great Camanoe, just off Beef Island, Tortola, there are only a handful of homes but a whole lot of peace and quiet!
“Sandy Point” allows for complete and total relaxation. This truly beachfront home with a dock allows you to live as one with the ocean and nature. It was the first Lot to be developed on Privateers Estate, Great Camanoe, because it was arguably in the best location for water and beach access, ocean and island views and breezes. It is accessible only by dock or on foot from the communal Privateers Estate dock, allowing for complete privacy. Yet it is only a few minutes boat ride from Trellis Bay and Beef Island airport so very easy to get to.
Designed and built by a seasoned European sailor, this home is simple, practical and works. Nothing to stress about. It is built almost entirely of local stone so very strong and was strengthened even further following the passage of Hurricane Irma. The 1.4 acres of gardens are criss-crossed by natural stone pathways. The home was built with very large cistern and water storage capacity so no issues there, although a desal plant could easily be installed if required.
The interiors of the home, as might be expected from a seasoned Nordic sailor, are simple but easily upgraded to suit your tastes. What matters more about this entirely unique property are the viewing terraces and very special spaces in which you can sit back, relax and enjoy the comings and goings of the passing yachts. Sit on the beach shaded by the sea grapes trees, or perhaps the main dining terrace, shaped like a ship’s foredeck, soaking in the view over Marina Cay. Spend a little more time at the property and you may discover the more sheltered, shaded dining terrace to the north of the property is a delightful spot for an al fresco lunch.
The main house features an open plan kitchen, dining and living area with beautiful ocean views out to the Sir Francis Drake Channel. The master bedroom and first guest bedroom, both with ensuite bathrooms, are separated by a bunk room, perfect for crew or for grandkids! The Guest Annex has a very spacious main bedroom and bathroom again with wonderful ocean and island views out over Marina Cay and a second bedroom and bathroom in the rear.
Conveniently located just a few hundred yards across the water is the Scrub Island Marina. Not only can hours of pleasure be gained watching yachts of all shapes and sizes coming and going ( the docking attempts by novice sailors doubtless will provide lots of amusement!) , but there’s a great provisioning store with small deli, two great restaurants if you get tired of cooking and a wonderful spa!
