Car: Not Necessary
Whale watching in Jan/ Feb/Mar. from the front patio of the house.
Expect an out of the box vacation, with very accommodating and friendly locals, free roaming cows and donkeys, fabulous beaches, an old harbor swimming hole, incredible water vistas and historic ruins, all on a rustic Caribbean Island, very much the uncommon Caribbean.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We are antique dealers, originally from Canada, who now have an antique store in Palm Beach, FL. We love the Caribbean and antique houses. We were not looking for a property when we tripped across the house, with the magnificent sea views, high tray ceilings and hand planned wood walls. The island of Salt Cay, with its friendly and individualist locals, clinched the deal. Six years later the house is completed, the journey had many twists and turns, joys and frustrations, it has been a labor of love, and well worth the effort. We are delighted to have had the opportunity to bring some of the history of Salt Cay, back to life. It is time now to share the life, with the islanders and future guests of the Half Way House. We are offering a one of a kind experience, in a one of a kind house, on a one of a kind island. Please come and enjoy.
Why the Owner Chose Turks Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands:
The island of Salt Cay, is rugged, beautiful, and individualistic. While it has the popular activities, such as beaching, diving, snorkeling, biking, and touring, it offers much more. The pristine beaches, azure colored ocean, deep, starry nights, 18th and 19th century Bermudian buildings and ruins, fill the soul. Salt Cay can be magical and enchanting, it appears suspended in time, untouched by the modern circus of large, orchestrated, corporate resorts. The island of Salt Cay is one of the last holdouts of the old Caribbean, no Club Med here...tranquil, peaceful and serene, from the free roaming donkeys and cows, to the warm and welcoming locals, the island is all about individuality and character.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
After the always fabulous and intensely beautiful flight to Salt Cay, each flight as individual as the island itself, the arrival at the Half Way House is always a delight, stepping through the wide front shuttered door, into the large downstairs great room, catching the sun light bouncing off of the waves, through the opposing door, it is the ahhhhh I am here moment. To step into the dignified presence of the wonderful old British colonial house, situated in such close proximity to the ocean, such a great combination of sea and history, I am thrilled to the bone. Cocktails on the ocean side deck, watching the Caribbean sun set, sleeping with windows open wide, with the sultry trade winds, caressing the sheets. The bright sun and lapping ocean in the morning, lunch and good conversation at Porters, Debbie's or Pats restaurants. The celebratory atmosphere of the early risers, waiting to take the ferry to Grand Turk, the Caribbean roosters and chickens, the donkeys and cows, dinner under a canopy of stars, this and more is the Half Way House and the island of Salt Cay.
