  • Relaxing and Beautiful

    "The unit and Ocean Club West Resort were clean, peaceful and comfortable. This is our second time staying in this unit. We used the on-site grill right outside our door to cook dinner one night. We ate breakfast and lunch every morning in the screened porch overlooking the pool and the water. The unit is so convenient to the pool and water. The staff were always ready and willing to help with anything we needed (providing a cart to carry our groceries and bicycles to explore the island, along with transportation, when needed). We really enjoyed the 1/2 day tour with Caicos Dream Tours (snorkeling, conch lunch, hanging at private island). Our favorite restaurants are Coco Bistro and Mango Reef (beautiful view at Mango Reef). We also discovered Tiki Hut that has all you can eat ribs and chicken for $14.99. We missed the local fish fry on Thursday, but heard it is a wonderful way to meet locals and try local food. Guess we will have to take another trip to check it out :)"

  • Grace Bay Beauty

    "My husband and I stayed at the Alexandra Resort for a week. The room is small but for the money, you can't beat it. We used the kitchenette every day for breakfast and snacks. No stove so we didn't cook, but the restaurants are so amazing, you want to try them all. We loved having drinks on the patio. The pool area is gorgeous but the main attraction is the beach. The water is so beautiful you won't believe it. We definitely agree best beach in the world. Staff are so friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful trip and will be back at Alexandra Resort again."

  • Everything we hoped for

    "We can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay with David, Amanda. We had a wonderful week. David met us at the little airport and drove us to the car rental and then led us to the property. It's at the east end of the island, away from the hotels and condos. The little cottage was clean and well maintained and David and Amanda were perfect hosts; available when we needed to talk with them or ask questions and giving us plenty of privacy. We would definitely recommend this property and in fact, we made a deposit for two weeks next winter. The beach is about a 15 minute walk but is splendidly isolated. One morning we walked and saw only a few people. There's a wonderful restaurant, Flamingo a few minutes away - the curried grouper was great. They're cash only, about $50 for two, including drinks. Graceway supermarket is only a few minutes away and I would say it's on a par with a Harris Teeter in the US. Rib-eye steaks were great (Dave has a grill by the pool) and they also have a great gourmet counter. Don't miss Coral Gardens Beach, a few miles up the beach. It's an underwater national park where you can snorkel and see lots of beautiful fish. Dave and Amanda had great beach chairs with umbrellas, so make sure you take them along in the car. We also took an afternoon snorkeling trip with Big Blue. They were great and not only took us to a couple of reefs, but gave us a chance to see humpback whales jumping. Everyone we met on the island was friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back next year! Really glad we found this place."

  • Life savers

    "This is a great place to stay off the beaten path. Five minutes to grace bay beach. With the storm shutting down Atlanta airport, our flight was cancelled and we thought we would be stranded for three days until our next flight. Katherine worked with us to get us into another one of their rentals down the street. It saved us from sleeping on the streets. Definitely looking to go back to Turks and staying in one of Wayne and Katherine's places again."

Turks & Caicos Islands Travel Tips

Turks and Caicos Vacation Rentals Welcome Visitors

Located some 650 miles east-southeast of Miami, the Turks and Caicos Islands are a British overseas territory. This sun-seekers' paradise is a neighbor to the Bahamas. Its capital is Cockburn Town, located on Grand Turk Island. The main entry point is Providenciales, with its international airport and harbor. From here, visitors can fly on to any of the inhabited islands. Its tropical climate and pleasant trade winds makes it an attractive location. This largely unspoiled area is a unique paradise where the inhabitants, or "belongers" as they are known, warmly welcome visitors. Visitors to Turks and Caicos vacation rentals come for the unspoiled beaches and crystal-clear water. Here, they enjoy the relaxed atmosphere along with beautiful scenery.

The Caicos Islands

The area of West Caicos is perfect for scuba diving and fishing. This uninhabited island is accessible by boat and often, the only company you'll have are the birds. While on the island, visitors often hike to Lake Catherine and the ruins of Yankee Town where all that remains are the remnants of the railroad and a steam engine.

Bird-lovers will also enjoy a trip to Little Water Cay, currently being developed as a nature resort for its wide variety of birds. Once the haunt of pirates such as Mary Reid and Annie Bonnie, Parrot Cay is now currently being developed into a resort area. Known as the "Emerald Isle" for its fertile soil, North Caicos is where much of the island's food is produced. It is also a tourist area, with miles of deserted beaches. Here, visitors will see osprey, flamingos and iguanas among the wildlife at the nature reserve. Middle Caicos, or "Grand Caicos," as it is sometimes known, is an undeveloped island. The inhabitants live in one of three settlements--Conch Bar, Banbarra and Lorimers. The coast is made up of bluffs and small, quiet coves on the west. To the south and north are high limestone cliffs and white sandy beaches. Here, visitors can explore the island's incredible caves. Middle Caicos is connected to North Caicos by a causeway accessible to cross at low tide.

Uninhabited East Caicos is home to the local turtle population who lay their eggs along its 17 miles of beach at the north of the island. Evidence of early rock carvings has been discovered to the northwest. On South Caicos is the quiet capital of Cockburn Harbor where visitors to Turks and Caicos villas can enjoy a quiet but social evening. During the day, this island is known for yachting, diving and spectacular big-game fishing.

The Turks Island

Grand Turk is the location of the islands' government and its business area. Visitors to Turks and Caicos vacation rentals here will enjoy the history as well as the culture. The waterfront museum details the story of the Molasses shipwreck and features rare manuscripts and prints gathered from among the islands. Buildings here date from the early 19th century, with high, white-washed walls and imposing entrances. Visitors will enjoy the diving, walks and guided tours on offer here.

Salt Cay, dominated by an imposing 1830s-style, white Bermudian house is one of the most charismatic of the Salt Islands. It is home to salt ponds which are still productive. Here, visitors will find relics of the old whaling industry. It has excellent beaches and during the winter, the majestic humpback whales can be spotted off its coast. Many visitors choose Turks and Caicos travel during the winter in order to spot these incredible gentle giants en route to their nearby breeding ground. Real enthusiasts will enjoy a diving trip to listen to the whales' song underwater. Visitors will also enjoy the opportunity to swim with the dolphins and turtles and see the spotted eagle rays and manta rays.

Turks and Caicos Travel to Find a Home Away From Home

Visitors to Turks and Caicos villas will find a warm welcome from the "belongers" and a wonderful property to call home. There is such an array of properties available that visitors will be hard-pressed to pick the one that best suits them. Huge beachfront properties,with their own docks and pool or small cozy cottages with private pools--the choice is impressive. Each property comes with all the little extras that make a vacation home into something really special. The major benefit of renting a home is that of space; you'll get to relax in private, peaceful surroundings. Visitors will find all that and much more with these Turks and Caicos vacation rentals.
