Property description

SUMMARY: Quaint 2 bedroom, 1 bath, beachfront apartment unit, in a single story building, nestled on a sandy beach overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Our unit has gorgeous views from almost every room and a wonderful covered beach side veranda where you can listen to the gentle lapping of the sea and view the beautiful sunsets. Come enjoy our wonderful swimming and snorkeling beach, the best of both worlds. Belongers (the native islanders) say it's the 2nd best beach on the island, Governors Beach, a public beach, being #1. We are an easy 10 minute walk to town and restaurants.

Grand Turk is a charming 'Old World' Caribbean island with quaint colonial buildings lining the narrow walled streets. The local people are very friendly on this laid-back Caribbean island. This is a British governed island, the currency is the US dollar.

INTRODUCTION: Crabtree Apartments is a small apartment complex consisting of only 3 units, side-by-side, in a single story building. They are nestled on the beach with gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea. You will enjoy wonderful views from nearly every room in the apartment. Both the living room and one of the bedrooms open onto a large private beach front veranda where you can relax to the sound of the gently lapping waves. The veranda is sure to be your favorite place to relax with cocktails while you watch the sunset and maybe even catch a glimpse of the infamous "Green Flash". It's so enjoyable to breakfast on the veranda watching the birds fly by and see the color of the sea change from vibrant royal blue to turquoise as the sun rises higher in the sky. We have three units available; you can find them all here; listing numbers:

Unit 1 (South End Unit) 4061413
Unit 2 (Center Unit) 4061415 - our largest unit connects with Unit 3 for large families
Unit 3 (North End Unit) 53010 - connects with Unit 2 for large families and groups

APARTMENT DESCRIPTION: This unit has a fully equipped kitchen, we even supply a few spices and a few grocery items to get your started. We know that after a day of travel the last thing you want to do is try to find the grocery store and shop. We supply a few breakfast items so that you can go out to dinner that night, have breakfast at the apartment in the morning, get your bearings and do your food shopping. We have 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and views of the sea, it has access to the veranda with the beach just beyond. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds that can be put together as a king bed, if you prefer, with views of the Salina and all the wildlife it attracts. The unit has 1 bath with a large tile shower. The bedrooms are separated by the bath, giving the bedrooms a bit more privacy. The dining/living room boast wonderful views of the sea and opens to a large, private veranda. You step from your private veranda directly onto the beach. The sea is literally right outside your door! There is a constant tropical breeze that flows through the apartment creating a pleasant atmosphere to relax.

We are located on a beautiful quiet beach, in a nice quiet residential neighborhood. Restaurants and town are an easy 10 minute walk away.

ABOUT GRAND TURK: Grand Turk is a small “Old World” Caribbean island. The island has maintained the charm of the colonial days due to the many antique colonial Bermudian buildings and white washed walled lined streets. You’ll feel as though you stepped back in time as you venture out for an evening stroll. There are beautiful views from nearly every place you visit on the island. Many of the restaurants are seated on the edge of the beach, a romantic setting for a leisurely meal. The local people are friendly and welcoming. The Turks and Caicos are considered some of the safest in the Caribbean, they are British governed islands but the currency is the U.S. Dollar.

Come and visit us here in our little piece of paradise. We literally are perched on the edge of the beach with all the amenities of your own apartment right at your fingertips. We know you will love it and look forward to seeing you.

NOTE: What we have that most other apartment and house rentals on Grand Turk don't have; We have the beach right outside your door and we are a pleasant residential area within walking distance to town and restaurants. Your rental unit will be directly on the beach. Our beach and swimming has very little seaweed and has a firm sandy bottom swimming area. Our family have run this vacation rental, on Grand Turk, since 2004 and have earned an excellent 5 star reputation. See our reviews on listing number 53010.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We are a family owned vacation rental. We have been renting our property here on Grand Turk for 11 years. Our family has been traveling to Grand Turk since 1988. We love the people and that it is a place where you can truly relax.

Why the Owner Chose Cockburn Town, Turks and Caicos Islands:
Our guests love us, as you can see by our reviews. We have many repeat guests you can see their reviews on listing number 53010. Our apartments are very clean. Irsa, our maid, takes great pride in her work. We work hard at maintaining our units, so you can have faith that what you see in the pictures is what you get. We go above and beyond for our guests and even supply a few breakfast items so you don't have to rush right out the door after arrival to shop but can dine out that night, have breakfast in the AM and then venture out. We are located in a pleasant residential neighborhood, walking distance to town and restaurants. We are located directly on the beach with the beach literally outside your door. Our beach is one of the nicest beaches for swimming on the island with a firm sandy bottom but we also have coral areas for wonderful snorkeling too. Many of our guests have commented saying they think we have the best beach for swimming and snorkeling on the island. I'm not sure I would go that far, as Governors Beach, a public beach, is truly beautiful. l would say we have the best private beach on the island (but remember in the Turks and Caicos no beach is considered private). That said, the number of people that pass by Crabtree Apartments, along the beach, in a day, you could probably count on one hand. If you are looking for privacy, a beautiful beach, clean, close to town and restaurants and with an excellent track record, we are it hands down!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We fell in love with island and the people. It's the kind of place where you feel like you fell off the side of the earth. Grand Turk has a nice easy pace of it's own which lets you unwind and really relax. We find it so easy to travel to the Turks and Caicos because the currency is the US Dollar and it is only a 1 1/2 hour flight from Florida, 3 1/2 hours from Boston or New York. The beaches are beautiful, the people are friendly and the scuba diving is superb.
