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 Leeward Settlement

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.

Quiet beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The Leeward cottage provides a quiet, peaceful stay on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The veranda is a nice breezy outdoor experience. We enjoyed eating our meals outside without the hassle of bugs. We enjoyed the pool and at night we could kick back and view the stars. A wonderful relaxing getaway if you want to get away from it all. Jane will provide all the information and answer your questions promptly. Betty met us at airport and was also helpful. Thank you Jane for the bottle of wine! We booked the trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary and also my son's high school graduation. A good choice!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed Columbus as much as we do. We found it seventeen years ago, and still love it. That beach is special. Come back again. Best wishes, Stephen and Jane.

Perfect private hideaway on the edge of all the tourist attractions

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The house was clean, comfortable and cozy with everything we needed to cook, relax and enjoy it as if it were our own. With the beach so close and our own private pool - we never felt the need to leave the property! Most people will say you should rent a car- but we got along just fine without one. Upon arrival, the property manager took us to the grocery store and once shopping was complete, the store called us a cab. We had a wonderful driver who gave us his card and we called him whenever we left the property. It was like having our own personal driver. I do recommend venturing out to north and middle Turks. The ferry is very close and worth the excursion. And don't miss the weekly fish fry- best place to get your souvenirs and some great food!

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.
