About judy crawford smith

We are Canadians from Toronto with our second home in Turks and Caicos Islands. Our family has been here since 2000 and watched the growth and development of these "Beautiful by Nature" islands.

judy crawford smith purchased this apartment in 2000

Why judy crawford smith chose Grace Bay

We purchased here for the proximity to a beautiful part of Grace Bay Beach and we have enjoyed one of the older original homes of the island that now has been restored. We love being central to both Regent Village shopping and Turtle Cove restaurant, a short drive to IGA. We enjoy the privacy set back from the road and the friendly and safe community.

What makes this apartment unique

Tree House is a residential home set back from Stubbs Road and surrounded by trees and gardens in a quiet location but near the Grace Bay beach. The best of all worlds, quiet and secluded when at home and yet close proximity to all the possible activities that Provo has to offer. Phone is included so that one may book any excursions that are available. Very good security with alarm systems and cameras.

You will be greeted by owner/managers who live nearby order to provide greater security and to make sure that all your questions are answered. We will give you code for the door, code for the safe, and make sure that internet is available for you as well as TV.

Wonderful property and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Judy and Peter's Tree House by the beach. If you're looking for a beautiful home that is quiet, immaculate, nicely landscaped, and a 2 minute walk to the beach this is it! The house has good WiFi, satellite TV, a cell phone for island use, a safe, and security system. It is spotless, tastefully decorated with nice comfortable furniture and a well equipped kitchen. The outdoor area is surrounded by lush tropical trees and flowers. There is a small but lovely pool and lounge chairs that provide both sun and shade. We loved coming home after an adventurous day to relax in the pool. The house also comes with beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, coolers, and a gas grill.

We reserved a car in advance from Grace Bay Car Rentals at the airport. The process of getting our car was quick and easy not to mention very friendly. I would recommend renting a car for exploring the island, although the tree house is in a great central location. You can walk to Grace Bay easily and a fun beach restaurant called Somewhere. Since all of the beaches are public, we enjoyed packing up for the day and going to different beaches. Our favorites were Leeward, Pelican, and Long Bay. You can snorkel the Bight Reef right off the beach from the Tree House. We really liked Smith's Reef in Turtle Cove for off beach snorkeling.

The very best part of staying at the Tree House are the hosts. Judy and Peter met us on arrival to go over everything we needed to know. Judy was readily available but never intrusive if we had any questions. We highly recommend this beautiful property and hope to return again.

The TreeHouse - Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 days at Judy and Peter's Treehouse. The property was clean and well-maintained and Judy and Peter were wonderful and thoughtful hosts. If there was something we needed, it was there waiting for us when we got back to the Villa at the end of the day.

The safe and security alarm for the property provided peace of mind, although we could have likely slept without incident with all the doors and windows open. The pool provided a nice refreshing dip after returning from snorkeling at Coral Gardens and Smith's Reef. We found the snorkeling better at Smith's Reef - just keep an eye out for passing boats if you venture out too far.

The central location was perfect for us as we explored the entire island from Grace Bay to Long Bay to kayaking in Chalk Sound with our rental car from Grace Bay rentals. Mr Groupers, Da Conk Shack, Las Brisas, and Solana provided the most memorable dining experiences - all completely different and all worth the trip. The rest of the evenings we purchased food and wine at the Graceway IGA and grilled beef fillet, big Caribbean lobster tails, and chicken on the outside BBQ grill - expect to pay 25-35% more than in the States for food, but this was still the most economical strategy and seemed fair and reasonable. We also got some fresh conch, onions, carrots, jalapenos, tomatoes, and limes and made a delicious conch ceviche' which we shared with all- can't do that in Kansas!

We will be returning to the Treehouse in the near future. That is, of course, the best endorsement. Enjoy and say hi to Judy and Peter for us.

Privacy by the Beach -- Great Unit, Location, and Hosts.

  • 5 of 5

I don't often write reviews. However, Judy, Peter, and their property deserve a 10 out of 10 rating.The Tree House has it all. Privacy, central location, security, and two minute walk to the beach. he unit is well maintained, clean, secure, and Judy is available if needed. She and Peter live close-by but they respect your privacy. Having a safe in the unit and an alarm system that can be turned on when you are gone and at night allows you to leave your passport, extra cash and credit cards behind when out and about without a bit of concern. Out of our last five trips to the Caribbean, The Tree House is the only rental to which we plan to return (we'd return to one other but it's no longer available. Three we would not use again). The Bottom line: We highly recommend the Tree House (unless you'll want it the same week as us).

Beautiful property, very private and relaxing atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything, from beautiful surroundings, to the basics in the pantry so you can cook some meals at home. Exceeded our expectations, as the owners keep up the grounds, the pool and the house just like they lived in it themselves. If you are looking for solitude and a place to unwind and relax look no more. Also walking distance to the beautiful beach and quite a few great dining and drinking spots. I miss it already.

Generous Apartment, Great Location and Lovely Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three wonderful weeks in late February enjoying the relaxing pace provided by the Tree House and its owners Judy and Peter.

It is difficult to determine what a property will look like or feel like from an advertisement and a few images but what you see on VRBO is very nice but what you’ll experience on arrival is so much more. The grounds are lush with tropical plants and trees, the apartment is spacious, clean and had everything we could ever need. The kitchen was a good size and well outfitted. The pool was a big surprise for us as we are more “beach people” but we really enjoyed a relaxing dip at the end of the day just before starting diner. The Tree House is located just behind Coral Garden and the protected reef. This is a great place for snorkelling right off the beach. For any walkers out there, it is a 45 minute walk from town or 25 minute walk to Turtle Cove. On the beach, there are plenty of shady areas to escape the midday sun.

We visit Turks and Caicos at least once per year but we have never enjoyed ourselves more. This due to many small details but it ultimately boils down to the great location, a generously sized and well-appointed apartment, the great location but mostly it was thanks to the ever-attentive Judy and Peter. It is impossible to talk about this property without mentioning these wonderful owners. We have never met owners like them. They really made us feel like we were staying in our friend’s really nice guest house. This was our first time staying with them but it will not be our last. They offer a level of hospitality that goes far beyond the price they charge!

This property is perfect for any couple looking for a quiet, peaceful retreat from regular life no matter if you have never been to Turks or if this is your 20th time. Like everyone else here, we highly recommend the Tree House Apartment.

We look forward to seeing Judy and Peter next year. Maybe we’ll stay even longer!

Treehouse is home

  • 4 of 5

My Wife & I not knowing the area at all, booked on VRBO to take a chance. And we couldn't be happier!! The house had everything you would need for a vacation. Great big living area, good size bedroom, beach chairs (most beaches don't rent chairs or umbrella's), beach umbrella, etc.... the location is in a perfect spot on Grace Bay. It nestled in with all the high end resorts, so avery nice meal, happy hour, frozen drink is only seconds away.

The owners Judy & Pete are wonderful owners, who want you to enjoy your week on Turks. This is a good pick!!

We are located 3 minute walk to Grace Bay beach, where you can find the underwater park with snorkeling and restaurants and bars on the beach.

A must see is the Island Fish Fry within walking distance every Thursday night. It's a cultural explosion - a party for locals and tourists like....also great Mexican food at 'Somewhere' in Coral Gardens Resort a five minute walk from the Tree House (our guest house).

Grace Bay is the best beach in all the Caribbean for snorkeling, scuba, deep sea diving and all the water activities!

Studio at same location can be booked instead or as well.
