About Jane Lambert

The Owner is English, a Company Director, based on the Cotswolds and married with three children and five grandchildren. We visit at least three times a year and have derived immense pleasure from staying at Columbus to 'recharge' batteries.

Jane Lambert purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Jane Lambert chose Providenciales

In order to have a comfy holiday home with character, away from the UK cold and wet, very close to the sea, and with the best possible choice of restaurants within ten minutes drive .

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy (without isolation) is one of the outstanding qualities of Columbus. Close proximity to the 'World's Best Beach': Grace Bay Beach, dining out, diving, kiteboarding, snorkelling and Golf make the cottage a wonderful holiday home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I were in need of sun/sea/recreation and we booked Columbus Cottage through VRBO. We found that it exceeded all expectations. We loved the privacy of the pool area and gardens, and we used the Gazebo for our breakfasts. The house was charming, comfortable and very well equipped. The accessibility of the sea was brilliant. My husband enjoyed the fishing, and it was a wonderful 'getaway' before our first baby arrives. We will be back.

Amazing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent some time at Columbus Cottage with my wife and 2 young kids. The place worked out great for our family. A crib and high chair were provided for our youngest child. The kids loved having the private pool to play in, and we were close enough to the beach that we could walk from the house. The closest beach to the house is absolutely stunning, perfect white sand and crystal clear turquoise water. The wrap around deck was one of our favorite parts about the house, as it is entirely screened in which helped keep the mosquitos out at night while we still enjoyed the outdoors. We also really liked how spread out everything is with the house, parking, pool, laundry - it's more like your own little oasis instead of just a cottage! The cottage is located on the north end of Grace Bay (Leeward area), so we did have to drive to restaurants more centrally located in Grace Bay. But this was never a problem, as it only took a few minutes to drive to those areas. What was nice about staying in Leeward though was that it was much quieter and relaxing than the central Grace Bay area. I would highly recommend this property, it was a fantastic stay!

Owner(s) are a pleasure to deal with !

  • 5 of 5

Jane, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with and makes sure all of your questions are answered in a timely fashion. It is also nice that Betty, the property manager, will meet you at the airport at night to guide you to the properrty. We stayed 10 nights recently and found everything about Columbus Cottage up to our expectations. The property descriptions are very accurate in the listing and we had everything we needed to enjoy the beach (coolers, chairs, etc) stored right on the wrap around veranda (screened in porch).

Very convenient location on the island . Grocery stores and quality restaurants are close by and so is the beach ! This is a great place to stay if you like privacy (the pool area is very private). Jane sent a bottle of wine for us to celebrate our anniversary and a birthday - a very thoughtful touch. We would stay at Columbus Cottage on a return trip to Provo without hesitation.

Delightful experience!

  • 5 of 5

First time to the island and we could not have selected a better place to stay. The house was delightful and comfortable! We really like the location and found the whole experience to be very easy. We would walk to the beach in the morning and then walk back for lunch. We would also walk to the beach for sunset which was perfect with our adult beverages and then go back and have our dinner. After, we would sit by the pool at night and gaze at the sky and the stars. There were four adults for a week and there was plenty of space!

The owner's were very helpful prior to our arrival with our questions and their manager Betty was very helpful to us too.

Wonderful house in beautiful setting near Grace Bay beach

  • 5 of 5

Columbus Cottage is a well-cared for house a 7 minute walk to the far end of Grace Bay, a beautiful part of the beach. The house had literally everything we needed for cooking and playing, and the pool area was beautiful and relaxing. Our favorite part of the house was the wrap around veranda, which gave us a ton of room to spread out and relax. We also loved the beautiful, lush garden that provided complete privacy. The photos don't do the house justice as you cannot tell just how generously sized the wrap-around porch is. There is a newly built gazebo by the pool where we ate our breakfast every morning. A Zen-like place, we hope to return!

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Peace and quiet are words to describe Columbus Cottage. Our stay here was just wonderful! Although very close to everything Grace Bay has to offer, we felt like we were in our own world. Columbus House itself was quite unique, comfortable, and cozy, and had everything we needed. Loved the screened-in wrap around porch and the shutters gave a very Caribbean feel to the house. A quick 2 minute drive to the lovely beach, where you could walk in either direction for miles and miles, seeing very few people. When not beaching it, the pool was fantastic, offering total privacy, and the lounge chairs were nice. We especially liked the more laid back beach restaurants along Grace Bay, although we ate some dinners in, which we also enjoyed. From the beginning, owner Jane made sure our stay was a good one, and property manager, Betty, met us at the airport to guide us to Columbus Cottage when we arrived. We knew we could contact her if any problems arose, which didn't. It was about a 20 minute drive. We did rent a car during our stay, which made it convenient to get around to see the island and just go back and forth into Grace Bay. We would definitely recommend doing that. The Gourmet Market was a five minute drive and had a good selection of things we would find back home. We also went to IGA on the main highway a little farther away, but their selection was not much different than Gourmet Market. There is a local pharmacy near the Gourmet Market, as well, if you happen to need anything. Regarding mosquitoes and other bugs, there were hardly any, so bug spray went unused. All in all, our stay at Columbus House far exceeded our expectations and it would be the only place we would stay if we returned to Providenciales.
