  • Look No Further!!

    "This suite at Ocean Club West is perfect! I looked at countless listings and am SO glad I chose Keith's place. First off, the pictures do not do it justice. It is open, airy, and just screams the beach. It is decorated with such a special touch and makes one feel instantly at home. He has stocked it with everything you could think of including rafts, tennis rackets, luxury hotel style robes, monogrammed beach bags, coolers, a kitchen stocked better than my own home, sirius radio, dvd's, etc. The bed is a king and SO comfortable. The use of a local and US phones was so helpful when checking messages back home and booking snorkel cruises, etc. (the boat picks up on the beach in front of the resort!). Speaking of beach, it is just steps from the resort. That is after you walk by the giant lagoon style pool which is so clean and pristine. There is also a restaurant with al fresco dining and a wide variety of beverages to chose from. It is easy walking distance to the super market, a great bakery, countless restaurants, Avis car rental if you want to rent one for a day, etc. Pretty much all you could want. No car is necessary but if you do happen to rent one there is ample parking. Grace Bay is the center of all the action and this suite is the perfect compliment and place to stay. Not to mention Keith is a pleasure to rent from. I can't wait to come back and stay here again!"

  • Another Wonderful Stay at the Charming House

    "We are sad to say we are back home after three glorious weeks on Salt Cay. This was our 5th time on Salt Cay and our 3rd stay at the Charming House (our favorite place to stay). We will definitely be back for another go. We loved sitting on the veranda during the heat of the day and watching the slow relaxed pace of the island in front of us. The Charming House is close enough to everything (Salt Cay is a relatively small island) but far enough from the busy north district to keep it quiet and away from what little hustle and bustle there is. It's the perfect place to slow down, kick back and RELAX. And as mentioned in previous reviews, Debbie, the property manager, is a master at making sure all your questions are answered. We are looking forward to our next stay at Charming House!"

  • Great Stay at the Yacht Club

    "This was our first stay in Turks & Caicos, and after much research we chose the Turtle Cove area to be close to Smith's Reef. This condo was perfect for us, and exceeded our expectations. The bedroom and bathroom are not pictured in the listing, and they are very attractive and modern in appearance. It was too hot to spend much time on the balcony, but the view of the pool and marina is lovely. The multi-level pool is very large, and due to most of this development being owner occupied, we were often the only 2 people at the pool. Plenty of room for our floats, and lots of shade around the pool. The owner picked us up at the airport and gave us an overview of the area and the unit, and even took us to the IGA to stock up. He isn't always in town to do this, so we really appreciated that. He has an office on site, and we ran into him several times during the week, along with his lovely family. When I broke the clip on my husband's snorkel, he was kind enough to take the clip off his son's snorkel and lend it to us for the week. The walk to the beach is a little over 5 minutes, which we were able to do with no problem. The unit itself is top notch and puts you less than 5 minutes by foot from 4 of the 5 restaurants in Turtle Cove. Scooter Bob's is within walking distance if you want to rent a car or bicycle. Because of the proximity to restaurants, we did not rent a car, and used the money we saved to take a snorkeling/shelling tour. We had a wonderful stay, felt it was a great value, and hope to return again in the future."

  • Perfect Vacation!! Fabulous Condo!!

    "My husband, two sons (23 and 26) and I just got back from a 5 night stay at this beautiful condo on gorgeous Grace Bay. It was an incredible vacation and the accommodations were a big part this! I had already decided to stay at the RG because of its central locations and just happened to look at VRBO and found this amazing 3 bedroom condo for less than a 2 bedroom through the hotel site. Needless to say, our kids were delighted to have their own room and bath. The decor is lovely and beds so comfortable. Great kitchen and beautiful bathrooms. The balcony overlooking the ocean was our favorite spot. Eating breakfast, having predinner cocktails. and just sitting around and talking. Incredible breeze and wonderful hearing the ocean. Things could not have gone more smoothly. Candy and Craig immediately answered any questions and were great about sending any information we requested. The in town manager, Nicola, was at the reception when we arrived and gave us a tour of the facility. She also had made us some advance dinner reservations, had a pull cart for us to take to the grocery and gave us a cell phone to use while we where there, which was really nice. It was great to know we could call her at a moments notice, but everything ran so smoothly, we did not need her much. The staff at the RG was really wonderful. So friendly and helpful. Always plenty of beach towels for the pool or beach, umbrellas ready. Great pool side bar-Turks Head Lager was cold and perfect on hot afternoon. They offered great beach and pool service. The pool was beautiful, grounds lovely and everything so clean and well maintained. Not enough adjectives to describe sand and turquoise waters. We were fine not having a car. Were able to walk to all the restaurants, either along the beach or on Grace Bay Road. Grace Bay Gourmet was a 10 minute walk and had everything. Had delicious fresh fish at almost every meal. Ate at Bay Bistro (twice), Coco Bistro, Seven, Caicos Cafe, Hemingways, Somewhere, Cabana Beach Bar and the sports bar in town. Lots of places closed on Sunday, so make sure you figure that out. We never did get to Vix, Bouchon or Bella Italiano, so will have to do those on our return visit! Walked to Coral Reef and snorkeled-rented the equipment when we got there. The RG concierge arranged a taxi for us to go to the airport-Note that fee is about $14.00 per person, so make sure you have cash. All in all, paradise and thanks to the Davenports for making it so!!"

Grand Turk Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Grand Turk Vacation Rentals

Grand Turk is the political capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands, located in the Caribbean. Because of its tropical climate, it is a year-round vacation destination. If you have special interests, there are certain times of year that you’d most like to visit. In the summertime, there are several festivals that attract many party enthusiasts. The annual game fishing competition is one such event where the days are spent out on the water trying to catch the elusive big one and the nights are a grand celebration. Those keen on whale watching will want to visit Grand Turk between February and April. It’s during this time that the humpback whales migrate from Salt Cay to the Silver Banks in the Dominican Republic.

Grand Turk Travel Attractions

Like many of the islands that make up the Turks and Caicos Islands, Grand Turk has beautiful powdery white beaches. As a tropical paradise, it doesn’t get much better than this. While the island is developed, there is still a strong emphasis on nature and most recreation activities are enjoyed with a high level of environmental awareness.

Grand Turk is consistently rated as one of the world’s top dive sites. The magnificent walls, colorful corals and rich diversity of marine life offer diving at its best. Access to these phenomenal dive sites is just a short seven-minute boat ride from the shore. Most people enjoy two tank dives returning to shore for a short rest break in between. For those that enjoy staying above the water, the snorkeling is equally rewarding. Charters operate regularly throughout the year, allowing visitors to experience this wonderful underwater world for themselves.

In season, you can watch the migratory whales breach and play in the surf. Whale watching excursions are very popular and it’s advisable to book your space well in advance. Nature trails and bird watching are other popular pastimes on Grand Turk. Sea birds of all kinds can be found along the shores. Guided ecological tours will give you unique insight into their habits.

If you have an interest in history and culture then stop in and visit the National Museum on Grand Turk. Here, you can see relics and artifacts dating back to the earliest known inhabitants on the island. The museum takes a walk through history right up to modern times. There is a particularly fascinating stamp collection among other attractions.

For a relaxed outing, you can join a cruise charter or horseback riding excursion around the island. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views as your chosen mode of transport takes you sightseeing. For something a little faster, you can hire jet skis or go on a speed boat excursion.

Grand Turk is a popular port of call for international cruise liners because of its state-of-the-art luxury cruise ship center. The center consists of a 3,000-foot pier with a welcoming deck and recreation area and can accommodate two Panamex class vessels simultaneously. Many visitors come ashore to shop for souvenirs in Cockburn Town and see the beautiful old historical buildings.

Who Will Enjoy a Stay at Grand Turk Villas

Grand Turk caters to a wide range of interests. Scuba divers and fishermen make up a large portion of visitors that return each year. It’s a place where there is loads to see and do, yet you can just as easily spend the days relaxing at your villa and simply enjoying the island views.

Getting to Grand Turk

The JAGS McCartney International Airport receives scheduled and charter flights from a wide variety of North American and Caribbean airlines. You can also look into flights that route via Provinciales International Airport on Caicos if you can’t find flights from your region directly in to Grand Turk. There is a reliable taxi service which makes getting around on the island relatively easy.
