A Most Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in Sea Biscuit for three weeks. It was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations so far! The cottage is quaint, well equipped, safe, and has the most wonderful screened in porch where I spent many hours reading. The bed is comfortable. There is plenty of seating (two couches--one in one on porch). Great outdoor shower.

Just down the beach is the Bohio Dive Resort - a fun place to eat and drink and from which you can snorkel, dive, rent bicycles or paddle boards, or just hang out. Great music Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Great buffet Saturdays! It's not too far to walk into town (1-2 miles depending on where you are going). We recommend The Secret Garden (at the Salt Raker) for dinner and drinks. You will have to plan your grocery shopping according to the container ships, but that's easy. We had no problem and ate in most nights (we do take our own frozen meat and fish....).

Sea Biscuit is a perfect place for a couple to hang out together for any amount of time. There are beach chairs and a great tree provides shade on the beach. We used the charcoal grill almost every night. Eddie, the caretaker, is very helpful and knowledgeable.

All in all, we highly recommend staying here for vacation if you want a quiet spot away from large resorts and lots of people. You won't be sorry.

Loved our stay at Sea Buscuit!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an amazing week at this wonderful cottage! Loved everything about this fully equipped cottage. A great location right on Pillory Beach to enjoy wonderful sunsets from the screened in porch...just yards from the ocean! Does life get any better than that!

The owners ( Jeanne and Mike ) are wonderful to deal with! Jeanne always answered any questions I had very promptly by email.

You're a very short stroll along the the beach to the Bohio Resort if you're wanting to go for a drink or meal.

The cottage is in perfect location for just relaxing and soaking in all of the natural beauty. We loved to just sit back on the porch and relax and read while enjoying the island breezes.

We truly hated to leave this perfect little cottage! We've stayed on Provo many times, but for us, this was heaven!

Can't wait until we return..!

Classic Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has it all — stunning ocean views, sea breezes, sunsets and the most wonderful screened in porch to soak it all in. We experienced a week long stay here at Seabiscuit cottage while diving in Grand Turk in early April. The cottage was exactly as described and was very comfortable, clean and tidy. Walk out the door, unlatch the sweet wooden gate and step out onto the sands of Pillory Beach – Beautiful! Steps away from Bohio Dive Resort, it maintains an old classic beach house feel with modern amenities.

This is the sort of place that if you were staying somewhere else and were walking along the beach, you’d find yourself saying, “I wish I could stay there,” or “I wonder who is so lucky to get to live there.” Take the opportunity and stay! Beach houses like this don’t come along very often.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming cottage that is right on the ocean. The photos speak for themselves! We enjoyed the screened porch in the evenings and the beach for snorkeling, sunning and walking during the day. Nice that Bohio is so close for a drink or meal if desired. Very peaceful and relaxing!

Fairy Tale Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This little house is perfect for those who want a relaxing, low key vacation. It's adorable, clean, comfortable, and has all the comforts of home. Most days we were the only ones out laying on the beach and the bar (bohios Ike and donkey) is only a 3 min walk on the beach where Rosie serves up the best Piña Colodas. Down the beach past Bohio, every day at 4pm the locals come in on their boats with fresh fish. If you want to grill a 2 lb lobster tail in the front yard of your house while watching the sunset, then strolling down to the bar for live music and drinks..this is your place :) We loved every minute if it and WILL be returning ASAP. Grand Turk is the T & C best kept secret.

** Make sure you take the ferry or whale watching trip over to Salt Cay and visit the Island Thyme bar and play zookeeper :)

Highlights:

The outdoor shower

Snorkeling right off the beach (we saw turtles, barracuda, and large schools of fish in 6 feet of water directly out front)

The wild donkeys

Seeing whales from the porch

Whale watching

Finding perfect conch shells

We had a nice stay...

  • 4 of 5

Very cute and comfortable cottage. The beach is beautiful. There was a TV, but I guess we didn't pay for that (I didn't remember reading about that) and only internet was on the neighbor's porch. Be sure you know what's available if that's important to you. I would go back again, but I'd be better prepared. We are new to traveling, so maybe this is the way most VRBO homes are.
