Recent Turks & Caicos Islands reviews

  • Perfect home away from home!

    "We recently spent 8 nights at the beautiful Emerald Estates rental home on North Caicos. We had a wonderful time on the island staying at this property. Alpheus Gardner was a fantastic host and we highly recommend staying at this property. We have stayed in rental homes all over the Caribbean and many times on North Caicos and this was one of the best! Alpheus welcomed us upon our arrival on the island meeting us at the ferry and spent lots of time getting us situated at the house. The house was absolutely spotless when we arrived (which is very important to us as we most often find rentals not as clean as they should be). Alpheus checked in with us every few days to make sure we had everything we need and was very conscientious about making sure our stay was comfortable. The house is an enormous and beautifully furniture home with all of the amenities you could imagine. The kitchen is fully equipped and served all our needs to make delicious meals (most rentals skimp on the kitchen but this was the best we have ever rented!) There are granite countertops and a dishwasher, which saved tons of time on cleanup of meals. There was four of us staying at the house and we all were beyond pleased with our stay. The master bedroom is huge and looks out onto the water so you can lie in bed and see the blue landscape. The other two bedrooms have wonderful views of the water as well although the windows are a little higher so you don’t see the view from the bed. The house comes with Wi-Fi, a cell phone and several TVs with cable. We are big critics of rental homes and honestly we could not think of anything that was lacking at Emerald Estates. Even the location was great – we have stayed on Whitby beach several times and although the beach is great for walking, the location of this home gave us great access to Bottle creek where we paddle boarded and kayaked. It also is on a windy point and provided lots of wind, which is key to avoiding sand flea bites (and let me tell you we have had hundreds on each of us by staying on Whitby beach). So if you are thinking of renting from Alpheus Gardner, go for it – you won’t be disappointed – it was truly a home away from home and was well worth the cost. We are always a little worried about paying for a rental up front but it worked out great and Alpheus and his property were all that they promised. Alpheus has thought of all the details in his rental home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Emerald Estates!"

  • Amazing Historic Home on the Quaint Island of Salt Cay

    "Our family stayed in the Brown House for 9 nights in July. We were a little unsure of staying somewhere so hot without air conditioning in the middle of the summer, but we were pleasantly surprised by how well the tradewinds blew through the home to keep things cool! It was actually very nice to spend the hottest part of the day in the lounge just feeling the breeze and reading a book. The house itself is very grand. It feels this way because the ceilings are at least 12 feet high and all painted white to help control the heat. It's has been beautifully restored to a historic charm with antique-looking furnishings and modern amenities. It brought our vacation to a whole new level. I enjoyed just walking around the patio, enjoying the views from every angle. The bedrooms were beautifully appointed and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is amazing...full-sized industrial fridge and freezer, stainless steel island and counters, and gas stovetop. We ate all of our meals on the oceanfront terrace, enjoying the views. I would strongly recommend renting a golf cart for at least a couple of days to explore all there is to see on Salt Cay. It's also nice to have in the heat even if just traveling a short distance. We were there primarily for scuba diving with SC Divers. We had some amazing dives. The dive master Richard was excellent...very safety conscience. All dives were computer and air dependent which meant we could stay down as long as the computers and air supply allowed. I think our longest dive was about 100 minutes! Our host was very accommodating and arranged for babysitting for our children while we were out. She allowed the children to go with the babysitter to another property she manages, Pirate's Hideaway, to use the beautiful pool there. As another bonus, we discovered our babysitter (Flor) is a masseuse, and we each had hour massages right on our own patio for very reasonable price! Our host also arranged to have our groceries in stock when we arrived and checked in several times through our stay to make sure everything was going well, offering help if needed."

    "The photos you see are just like the house truly is!! This property is amazing!!! It is the closest property to the Ocean on all of Grace Bay after walking from one end to the other. The sand here is the best we have ever walked on and the beaches are incredible. The view from almost every room upstairs is spectacular. The kitchen has every item and then some that you could even imagine. We cooked a lot of food inside and out because there is no reason to leave this place. We have rented several homes and been very disappointed because the picture shows one thing and then you get there and the pictures were from 10 years ago and the house is run down. From the owner (Katalin) to James and Romeo we have never had a better experience. Romeo made our beds every day and changed out our sheets midweek. We always had plenty of clean beach towels, bath towels and wash clothes. He would refill all of out paper towel and toilet paper as well. Romeo even ran to the store for us a couple times which saved us from leaving this place (yes we did tip him very well because he was that good of a care taker). There is also plenty of spices to use which was also fantastic. If you stay here you will go back!!! And the color of the water that you see in the pictures are true as well.Enjoy"

  • Very serene and in a great location

    "Having never been to T&C before and having stayed in all inclusive hotels for the past few years, we were not sure what to expect. However, the serenity and lush surroundings of South Fleetwood was a welcome change for us. We stayed in the Suite (2 bedrooms), which we found to be a charming and quaint throwback to a beach side cottage. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the property, which was so different from the hustle and bustle of larger resorts. The location was excellent as the beach is close by. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach and spent many long days there. Being New Yorkers, we judged the walk to the beach to be about a short city block. We also spent a few afternoons lounging by the pool area. We found a few restaurants within a 5 minute walk, as well as other shopping. The smaller IGA supermarket was a 12 to 15 minute walk. All that being said, the highlight of South Fleetwood has got to be Kit and Colin. We cannot thank them enough for being such warm and gracious hosts. They are truly great people with very open hearts. We would definitely return. Tip: If you are trying to locate South Fleetwood on the Google maps it won’t show up. Search for the “The Mansions”, a condo complex across the street from South Fleetwood. This will give you an idea of where South Fleetwood is located."
