Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Leeward Settlement, Turks and Caicos Islands:
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 .

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
