Recent Turks & Caicos Islands reviews

  • Paradise!

    "My sister and I chose Turks and Caicos for our trip this year partly because of Silly Creek Cottage. It looked wonderful, quiet and inviting and the reviews were great. Well, we certainly weren't disappointed. The accommodations couldn't have been better for us. The home is way from the tourist area making it a perfect place to relax and recharge our batteries. Heather and Clayton were wonderful hosts. Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of heaven! I would certainly recommend Silly Creek Cottage to friends and family!"

  • Amazing trip - we will be back

    "My husband and I rented Al's condo for 2 weeks in April and we could not have had a better experience. Al's until has the best views of the beach and was very clean. Working with Al was very easy. He is very responsive and friendly. The weather was perfect the entire time. The location of this unit is in the heart of Grace Bay so it's easy to get almost anywhere you want to get to on Grace Bay. The beach and water are amazing and we spent many mornings and evenings on the balcony enjoying the views. The staff of the Alexandra are all friendly and accomodating. We learned so much about their culture just by talking to the staff. The Mango Reef has excellent food and a nice atmosphere. This was by far the best trip we have been on and we have traveled much of the Carribean. The island and people are beautiful and we felt very safe no matter where we traveled. Thanks, Al, for great accomodations. WE WILL BE BACK!!!"

  • Secluded and Beautiful Hideaway

    "From the moment you walk through the doors you feel like you are in paradise. The villa is beautifully decorated and the view is breathtaking. The villa is fully equipped so you can prepare all your meals at home. It even has a gas grill. The home has central A/C and a separate unit in the Master on the first floor which is very quite. Alepheus the owner goes out of his way to make you feel at home. He meets you at the ferry and escort you to Emerald estates. He is there to assist you with anything you need. I do recommend you buy all your groceries in Provo. Also a jeep is the best way to get around the island and explore all the beautiful beaches. It is quiet and secluded we never so anyone else near our villa the entire week.It is also centrally located to Whitby, the ferry, stores, restaurants and beaches and not far from Middle Caicos. Alepheus was a very attentive and gracious host a pleasure to work with. He hooked us up with his brother Nat that provided us with fresh fish during our stay. We also hired Nat to take us out to find shells, go snorkeling and fishing. What an awesome experience. So if you are looking for a perfect place to stay that is quiet, comfortable with a breath taking view to wake up to every morning look no further than Emerald Estate. It is the best place on North Caicos."

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.
