Property description

There is still one place in the world where you can stroll down a deserted beach hand-in-hand with your loved one, and be the only souls on the sand. There is still one tiny, Caribbean destination where you can turn off the world, relax completely, and recharge totally. There is still one island paradise that has escaped the tourist crowds – a place reminiscent of Hemingway’s utterly romantic and delightfully charming Caribbean.This is an oceanfront paradise of long-standing traditions, where fishermen hawk the day’s catches on the beach and fresh lobster and conch always have a place on the table. This is a place of unspoiled, natural beauty – aquamarine surf and fine sands that stretch as far as the eye can see. This is a romantic throwback to old-fashioned island glamour, where open-air cafés line the streets and white gingerbread porches frame pastel-painted clapboard.Welcome to the Caribbean of 40 years ago – a secluded and sleepy island rimmed by golden sands and turquoise sea. Welcome to powdery dunes and narrow, cobblestone streets that once witnessed the footfalls of Taíno Indians and Spanish conquistadors. Welcome to cobalt skies that bleed nightly into hues of fiery orange, summer-ripe cherry, and dusky rose – and the occasional (but always magical) green flash of a Caribbean sunset.

The place is Grand Turk. The destination is Pillory Beach. And the oceanfront paradise is Beachside Bungalow. Grand Turk is the Caribbean that few tourists will ever see – a place of few distractions and even fewer crowds. It is spectacularly beautiful. It is wonderfully secluded. It is completely paradise.

And it is yours to explore.

Welcome to Beachside Bungalow, an oceanfront duplex and your Grand Turk rental home, set on a semi-private beach bordering the exotic Caribbean Sea. Take your choice of Sea Gull, our larger home, or Sandpiper, the duplex’s smaller side. Both offer two bedrooms, two bathrooms and airy, sun-drenched beach-casual décor – which breezy getaway best suits your needs? Whichever you choose, one thing is for sure: you’ll soon be sipping your morning coffee with your toes bathed in gin clear waters…


No high rises or big developments, just you and your loved one on the beach.

Our home is directly on the prettiest beach on the whole island (Pillory Beach), and the beaches of the Turks & Caicos Islands are consistently ranked best in the WORLD year after year.

In addition to that, Grand Turk is also ranked in the top 10 SCUBA dive sites in the world year after year.

The Turks BeachsideBungalow was extensively remodeled and a huge rear porch and built-in barbecue grill was added in July of 2013. All new bathrooms, kitchens, appliances, furniture, beds, curtains, sheets, towels - everything is new and wonderful.

2 Bedrooms, each with their own private bath. (2 Bed, 2 Bath) Master has very luxurious KING bed and front bedroom has 2 Twins that can be converted into a King also.

Our house also has the good fortune of being located less than 100 yards from the grocery store with the largest selection on the island and 300 yards in the opposite direction, the nicest restaurant on the whole island at Bohio resort. Bohio is also where you can rent a Hobie Cat, paddleboards, kayaks, and extra bicycles. They also have snorkel trips, scuba trips, and whale watching excursions. All of it just a short walk down the beach just north of our bungalow. At night we will get dressed, walk down the beach to Bohio, take sunset pictures, have a fantastic chef prepared meal, and then walk back to our quiet little bungalow under the stars.

4 more island favorite restaurants are towards downtown, a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride away. Plenty of restaurant and bar options on the island.

Two bikes per Bungalow side are now available for free to cruise the island.

Grand Turk is a special quiet little island which has yet to be discovered by the developers and tourists. We can sit on the beach for hours and sometimes days (non cruise ship days) without seeing a single person. Very Special!
However, on cruise ship days there will be a bit more activity on the island and near our beach. The cruisers are usually on the island for about 5 to 6 hours during the day, so their impact is pretty limited. A late boat will pack up before 5, so our sunsets are always secluded and private!

Year round temperatures of 75 to 85 make for an Ideal winter or summer getaway. We snorkel in December!

Getting here is fairly easy, but does require an extra flight to get over to Grand Turk. We usually fly American Airlines to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, (airport code PLS) and then either Inter Caribbean Air or Caicos Express Airlines to Grand Turk. (about $70 round trip for the puddle jumper). Look these up to purchase separately from your main flight from the US. Getting here instructions and hot-links to airlines can be found on our main website Beachsidebungalow-dot-com - along with many more pictures and things to do info.


On another note, if you are concerned about any listing being fraudulent, call the owner and have a talk. Whether it is our listing or any other one you may choose, a quick phone call can clear up any concerns you may have. At the very least do an internet search for the owners name and see if they have a profile that matches up with links to their vacation rental.

Thanks for looking, Drew Renshaw 901-864-1726

Having a grand time on Grand Turk!!! 12/10/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Beachside Bungalow on Grand Turk is the perfect place for an idyllic tropical getaway. The house sits directly on a secluded beach with the Caribbean as a backyard. As soon as we walked into the house, we knew this would be the perfect pre-Christmas vacation.

We enjoyed watching the sunset each evening while lying in the hammock or sipping cocktails on the patio couch. The spacious master bedroom opens directly out onto the patio with perfect views of the beach. I can't think of a more relaxing way to fall asleep each night, listening to the waves, or to wake up each morning greeted by the sun and crystal blue water.

The large, well-appointed kitchen and market within walking distance made preparing meals easy. There are also a number of local spots for daily meals and drinks. The two cruiser bikes that came with the house made getting around the island even more enjoyable.

The house also has beach chairs, games and snorkel gear. The reef is just out the back door and is full of interesting sea life. The island is fairly quiet and the locals are very friendly and accommodating. The cruise ship port is at the other end of the island so you can choose to mingle with the passengers or enjoy the peace and quiet.

Drew was easy to work with and booking the house was a breeze. Arelys, the local property manager was very helpful and answered any questions that arose. There is plenty of information about the island in an easily accessible binder and the local cell phone provided was pre-loaded with minutes.

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing beach vacation, this is a great spot to get away and unwind.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife and I fell in love with quiet Grand Turk 7 years ago for a 40th birthday surprise trip and just had to find a way to have a place here. Our Turks BeachsideBungalow. Blessings, Drew and Joanie Renshaw

Why the Owner Chose Cockburn Town, Turks and Caicos Islands:
Our duplex house is situated on the west side of the island right on the beach for beautiful sunsets each night. Rates listed are for the smaller unit, If your party is larger and needs more space you can add my larger unit for $340 per night depending on season. ($30 more per night than my smaller unit) Both units have 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, den, and kitchen. Both units have a large back porch on the rear facing the beach, a perfect spot to watch the sunset each night.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Grand Turk is the most wonderful quiet little island. It's the Caribbean of 40 years ago; authentic, unspoiled, naturally beautiful with no high rises or throngs of tourists everywhere all day and night. Our Turks BeachsideBungalow is the perfect place to get away from it all and reconnect with your spouse. Our days are usually spent waking up late, strolling the beach hand in hand, laying out soaking up the sun, cooking a dinner on the grille, and lots of conversation which gets lost in the bustle of life. After spending a few days alone together we may be ready for a little action, which is when we may go down to the Cruise Center and people watch. The cruise ship center is a self contained tourist mecca where cruise ships check in for the day and their guests have a big time in the huge pool with swim-up bar, a Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, a surfing machine for learning to surf, and tons of shopping.There is a DJ every day having games and contests with the pool crowd - always a fun time is had here. We can go right in and join the fun free of charge and then when we tire of it, come back home to our little bungalow.
