Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My life has been anything but ordinary. Restaurants, offices, trucks, construction and massage are a few of the many vocations I have had. My son is 32, studying for his PHD in New Zealand for 1 more year. I am now semi retired and travel in my 24' RV, and have a new home in Florida. Short term rentals are the best way to share this beautiful island home.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands:
After dreaming of a house on the beach for a long time, I found this piece of land and started building my home in 2004. It was an adventure to be sure, being alone and single, but it was worth it 10 months later when it was finished. Life changed my plans to stay, so I headed back to Cape Cod. It was even more quiet then, just a few grocery stores, one water fountain, and 2 good restaurants. The one priceless quality, is that you are the only one walking the perfectly beautiful beach.. along with the occasional cow, donkey or horse. It's still just as secluded, tho there are more homes on the north stretch of beach. This home has been a rental since 2005, and I visit as often as I can. This is the second year as a monthly rental in the winter. .

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I find that I still love the same things about this island and my home as I did when I first came here. Every evening at the same time, I would stop everything and sit on the back porch to watch the sun go down. It's different here. Mesmerizing. In the morning I can't wait to get up before the sun rises. Clean air, water, and quiet. When you walk the beach it's your own private island. Now that I have had the time to fix up every little thing, it's perfect. Now I wish I could stay....
