You feel relaxed the moment you arrive at the Little Red Barn in Sandpiper Estates. Your body relaxes as you take in the expansiveness of our tall trees and the calmness of island life.  A clean, simple layout with a unique spiral staircase leading up to the loft area with 1 queen bed along with a full bedroom with two queen beds. The sliding doors on the main floor open up to a beautiful, newer 600 square foot deck with ample seating to enjoy a great BBQ or gaze up at the stars. There is ample outdoor space with a short 10 minute walk down to Sandpiper beach for some beach combing or jump in the water which is the warmest beach on Hornby by the way. If you enjoy mountain biking the 71 trails going up Mount Geoffrey are just a 5 minute bike ride away. Not to mention the lower trails all over the island which are great for young and older families to ride.
