About Ann & Fred Babucke

Fred and Ann had so much in common, like the love of travel. Their first trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands was in July 2003. They fell in love with the white powdered beaches, turquoise waters and friendly people. What an incredible island! They scheduled an appointment with a realtor and after one day of viewing properties wanted to make an offer on a one bedroom condo at Royal West Indies. The resort was 3 years old and absolutely gorgeous. The architecture, grounds, beach and of course the condo, WOW! Their low key agent said there was no rush but Ann being a realtor wanted to sign immediately. The next day at the pool they purchased the vacation home of their dreams. Three and a half years later (7/7/07) with 90 guests attending, they married on Grace Bay Beach. They open their doors to you so you may experience the Turks & Caicos Islands they fell in love with!

Ann & Fred Babucke purchased this condo in 2003

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first stay at the Queen ann suite or the RWI resort and we agreed it was our favorite caribbean destination (Grand Cayman and aruba, previously)! The RWI resort - impeccably cared for, perfectly low key, great onsite facilities and amazing beach. The resort staff was excellent - always active. The suite is fantastic. We had our own snorkel gear but nice to have the option of gear or beach floats if we needed anything. We cooked every night and the fact that you had so much cookware/dishware/cooking utensils and spices (spices were a total surprise!) were awesome touches that haven't been as good at other resorts/units. The quality of the furnishings and fixtures in the suite were great, and we enjoyed a relaxing breakfast on the patio every morning. And of course - the island and beach - just the best! In addition to the beach at RWI (with is great), we went on a couple of excursions and drove to several areas (Taylor Bay to relax and Smith's Reef to snorkel off the beach were our favorites, along with Big Blue Unlimited's Edge of the Banks snorkel tour). From the helpful info and communication leading up to our trip, to the incredible stay throughout - an amazing vacation in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My friends stayed in same resort and were jealous we got this condo. Super comfy bed, all updated. My teenager slept on pull out sofa bed and said it was very comfy. I will be booking this condo again. The resort is very nice. I drove and looked at many other resorts and this one is very nice! Very easy to deal with owners.

Like Home but way better!

  • 5 of 5

Been coming to Turks and Caicos for 11 years, it's our favorite destination and we travel a lot. The Queen Ann Suite is ideal, we tried Four different places on the island before finding this one but have been here 6 times since. Ann and Fred think of everything so your week in Paradise is perfect. Thanks!

The Queen Ann Suite is the BEST place to stay on Grace Bay Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 7th time in Turks & Caicos...2nd time in the Queen Ann Suite. I wish it hadn't taken me so long, staying at other places, before I found Ann & Fred! I stayed for 1 month this time.

Royal West Indies (RWI)...beautiful landscape, well maintained pools and hot tub, delicious restaurant & FUN bar area, helpful beach guys, & comfortable accommodations.

The Queen Ann Suite is a large 1 bedroom condo on the ground floor of the 2nd bldg. This building is angled so that one can view the horizon from the patio. I should've counted the exact number of steps from the suite to the water's edge but I can tell you it's about a 1 minute walk. The best part is that your beach bags and gear can be tossed onto the patio instead of having to carry it thru the condo (which is what you would have to do if you stay on the 2nd/3rd floors. Plus, there are NO elevators. Thus, the ground floor in the 2nd building is the place to be...close to the beach, the main pool and the restaurant/bar. Additionally, parking your rental car in the public lot next to the restaurant lessens the steps back & forth when going out to explore.

Ann & Fred have gone above and beyond to make sure their condo is in perfect working order, and is well stocked with all the things you might need to make your stay more comfortable. The bed in the master bedroom is incredibly comfortable & the sofa sleeper is the most comfortable sofa bed I have ever slept on (my family & friends who visited said the same)!

The maid, Joy, is the best, as is her husband, Atol, the property manager...let them know if you need anything.

MY Favorites:

Floating in the turquoise water in front of RWI

Grace Bay Car Rental...bec the fee they quote covers everything!


Pelican Bay (at RWI)...go for the WED evening all you can eat BBQ...delicious & a great deal

Bella Luna for pizza (take out & sit on the beach back at RWI to watch the sunset)

Cocovan (next to Coco Bistro)

Ocean Club East & Ocean Club West---both restaurants overlook the beach & are a very short walk from RWI


snorkel boat: Island Vibes

Take special care to be friendly with the beach guys: Eddie, Russell, Francois, & Virgilus...they will take good care of you!

...your best bet is to go with Marvelous Max who walks the beach every day...

AND, If you see the guy sitting on the beach with the "homeless by choice" sign...say hello to JOHN from the Mermaid Club :)

I will be back again & again & #2

Fantastic return trip!

  • 4 of 5

Rented a vehicle this year. Enjoyed seeing the island and other restuarants. Our ALL DAY Snorkeling adventure w/CAICOS ADVENTURES was without a doubt the highlight of our week.

This is heaven on earth! This was our 4th visit to T&C and it was beautiful as always. This was our 1st time at RWI and the respire was absolutely wonderful. The grounds were the nicest of all the places we've stayed at and the staff were very friendly and helpful.....always a warm hello and smiling faces.

The Queen Ann Suite was terrrific. Ground floor so no climbing stairs, which is important if you are older or have young children (watched elderly people struggle going up the stairs with luggage or just to get to their room). And, it is the 2nd building so really close to the beach. The suite was really comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked, so cooking was no issue. We do a lot of cooking and bring spices with us, but the suite had a full range of spices for guests to use. And the bed....was the best we've ever had on vacation... no back or neck problems this year!

The property manager Atol greeted us and helped bring our hinges to the suite; and Joy, who cleaned the room, was also super friendly.

Ann & Fred checked in with us during the vacation to make sure everything was OK, which of course it was. Thank you Ann & Fred, your home is wonderful. We'd book again in a minute.
