Property description

Charming House on Salt Cay offers the experience of authentic Caribbean island life, updated to today's standards of comfort and vacation relaxation, just like Salt Cay itself. Located in its own walled yard in the unspoiled historic quarter of South District, it is across the street from the Government House, newly restored by the National Trust. Charming House is a traditional Bermudan cape with a deep, roofed veranda commanding views of the island, the sunset over the azure sea, and humpback whales on their timeless migration.

The house sleep six. There are two bedrooms located on the ground floor, each with a queen bed, closet and doors onto the patio equipped with deck chairs and an outdoor dining table. Upstairs the master suite offers quiet space and a romantic iron double bed draped in netting. Dormer windows funnel cooling breezes overhead. The veranda features an antique Indian charpoy bed for the perfect siesta. Planters' chairs set the scene for cooling drinks as the sun goes down.

The house is a Caribbean love affair, completely renovated and updated by the owner with comfortable furnishings and attention to detail. Screened and shuttered windows are left open to the cooling trade winds, reflecting the wisdom of generations of islanders. The kitchen is modeled on the original, but features zinc counters, five ring gas stove, water filter, kitchen bar set in the breezeway, and a full set of quality cooking equipment. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and another with a tub/shower.

Charming House is the perfect place on the perfect island for a romantic getaway or family vacation, offering spectacular whale watching, diving, beach days and convivial nights.

Humpback whale watching January through April. World class scuba diving. Untrammeled beaches, with fishing creeks and mangroves are making Salt Cay an eco destination. Don't miss the hike along the wild Atlantic beaches on the east coast, nor the snorkelling off North Beach.

Year Purchased: 2008

About: I am a British-born journalist and writer who has traveled widely and lived in New York for the past 25 years.

Why Salt Cay:
After many visits, I knew Salt Cay was the place I could call home for part of the year. It is my kind of island. Friendly, laid back, authentic and always interesting. Reviews will tell you that the Charming House is a uniquely lovely and tastefully renovated hideaway!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Charming House has been part of the fabric of Salt Cay for 150 years, and proud members of the original family still live in the neighborhood. The people of Salt Cay greet you on the street, in the neighborhood restaurants, and in the shops. You'll be welcomed at the churches, school presentations, local sporting events and communal celebrations. You're minutes to some of the best snorkeling, diving, and beaches in the Turks and Caicos.
