About the property

1 Bdrm suite, w. private balcony overlooking Grand Turks tranquil creek and sea

Managed by Owner - Located on a private hill-top, overlooking the serene waters of North Creek and the west-side beach, Island House boasts Grand Turk’s most luxurious vacation rental suites. Situated up the road from ‘the strip’, Island House has its own pool and lush and tropical gardens, where you will feel like you’ve truly escaped from it all.

Our elegant 1-bedroom suite is tastefully decorated with an artistic Balinese flair, and features a deluxe king-size bed with full bath and fully-equipped kitchen. You’ll feel totally relaxed walking out to your own private balcony surrounded by a tropical oasis of flora and fauna, while sipping your morning coffee or evening beverage. This suite offers ample living space with its full kitchen, modern bathroom, master bedroom and private terrace. Amenities include: A/C, WIFI, Cable TV, DVD player, telephone, hair dryer, daily cleaning service, on-site laundry, telephone, and an onsite manager to ensure that all your vacation needs are met.

The Island House grounds offer an abundantly rich courtyard, bursting with tropical plants and trees with an archway leading out to the patio and fresh-water pool. From here, you get the magnificent ‘triple blue view’…which is the layers of the blue from the creek, the sea and the vast blue sky. In the evening, this is the perfect place to watch the sunset and look for the elusive ‘green flash’. With full creek access, you can take one of the kayaks out to explore the surrounding waters or enjoy fishing under the moonlight.

With Grand Turk's tiny size of only 1.5 x 7 miles, you are never far away from anything. Our guests have full-use of our bicycles or have the option to rent a car to explore the island, soak up some sun, eat at one of the many beach-side restaurants and take a refreshing dip in the turquoise sea. With 3 full service dive shops on the island, you will be able to dive Grand Turk’s famous “Wall” or take a day trip to one of the many surrounding cays or islands.

We look forward to your stay with us...

About Donna/Rhianah

My husband and I moved to Grand Turk from the UK, 17 years ago. My Father had just retired from a career where he travelled the world, and bought this property to renovate into short term rental units. He always loved Grand Turk and fell in love with one special person, his wife and my mother, who he met here in 1962. After all the globe-trotting, they eventually came back to Grand Turk. My father, being my father, could not sit still for 5 minutes so Island House was born…and didn’t take long for me to follow. It was either, the grey skies of London or the magnificent blues of Grand Turk (where I had been visiting since I was 8 years old)…a no brainer! I was involved with the set up and running of Island House for much of this time. Both parents have now passed away but what they started carries on today.

I live in onsite, so I will be on hand to help with anything or give recommendations on where to go and what to do. I can arrange car or golf car rental, pick up from airport and show you where everything is.


Donna/Rhianah purchased this hotel in 1992

Why Donna/Rhianah chose Grand Turk

Firstly, Grand Turk is a magical, relaxing island, but it is not for everyone. The glitz and glamour is in Providenciales our bigger sister island. In Grand Turk, you will find a genuine laid-back Caribbean island. Donkeys, horses and goats roam the streets, freely. People are friendly and greet you. The beaches are beautiful….and you can still find a spot with no people even when the cruise ship is in.

Although we are not directly on the beach, nothing is far here… the whole island is 7 miles long by 1.5 miles wide. We have a couple of bicycles but I would recommend hiring a car or golf cart for your stay. If you are like me, I never go anywhere unless I have a vehicle. You see so much more of the place and you can go exploring the less travelled parts of the island which are just as beautiful. If you want to eat out, the Bohio restaurant is a 5 minute drive away and the “strip” 10 minutes max.

The owner is nearby if you run into any difficulties like locking your key happens! And I am always happy share my local knowledge. We have daily housekeeping every day except for Sunday at no extra charge.

What makes this hotel unique

Island House rests atop a peaceful hillside that allows you to truly escape it all. We have a pool…not all properties on Grand Turk have one. On days were the sea might get rough, you can still enjoy the water. We also have other units so if you have a bigger party, your friend’s family can all stay. We have a beautiful, peaceful garden with humming birds and if you are lucky you might see a flock of flamingos flying down the creek in front of the property around sunset.

We have the perfect property for private functions. Our multi-level patio, with outdoor grill overlooks the pool and creek and is perfect for weddings and private parties.

Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Island House. Donna has all the information on sites and restaurants. Because of recent facial surgery, my husband email to ask if there were beach chairs and umbrellas. When we arrive there were two new chairs and umbrellas. The refrigerator was stocked for breakfast. We went to Bohio ( crazy good burgers), The Nest, Sandbar, and Barbie's. The grocery stores had enough variety to BBQ and make picnics. Highly recommend small museum on main street near the water, only open on cruise ship days and The Conch Farm. The daily housekeeper and gardeners were all friendly. We had the sparkling pool to ourselves and most the time the beaches. Even on cruise ship days you can find a quiet beach. Donna is continuing to maintain and upgrade this beautiful property.

Donna the hostess is great

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week in September. Donna the hostess was extremely gracious, answered all the questions we had about the island, gave us a tour of the island and recommended places to eat. Couldn't have asked for better customer care, thanks Donna!!!

Like staying with family - but with luxury amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a couple at Island House and Donna was an amazing host for our week long trip! She went above and beyond by giving us a tour of the island, introducing us to people, and even giving us a ride to the grocery store since we didn't rent a car. We biked every day to the beach and spent most of our time diving. By Day 2 we felt like locals since we got to know so many friendly faces. The apartment was wonderful- very roomy, nice toiletries, and very elegant decor (bali style). We always had breakfast on the patio and made several meals in the great kitchen. Even the dining ware was very upscale. The last day we finally even had a chance to jump in the pool which was very refreshing. Could not ask for any more from Island House or Donna!

Donna is the best!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 1 and a half year old spent 4 night at the highland house. The unit was really clean and modern.

We would also recommend a car if you come as a family and bikes would have been fine if it was the two of us.

Donna was great about giving us recommendations for beaches and places to eat and very accommodating all throughout our stay.
