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 The Bight Settlement
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.

The place was spacious...and a hidden gem!
Judy was an awesome hostess.
We cannot wait to go back!
Quiet, centralized location
We loved the tree house. It was very nice, clean, and had everything you need. The warm breeze upstairs was glorious. We hardly turned on the AC at night. It is a safe area and you also have an alarm you can turn on at night. Judy, Peter, and Armina were extremely gracious. We love staying at places that are away from the crowded resorts yet close to everything and this was no exception. It was a short walk to the beautiful beach and Somewhere cafe. We got a car which helped get us to and from the store, other restaurants, and docks where we went out on the boats. Some boats will pick you up right at the beach. We will definitely return.
We had a week in the treehouse and loved every moment. Judy and Peter were wonderful hosts . The apartment was spacious, peaceful, comfortable and fully equipped. The private pool was a nice bonus. We hated to leave and plan to return next year.
The short walk to the ocean was convenient. The coral reefs were close by for fun snorkeling. Thank you again Judy and Peter for all you did to make our Island retreat so memorable!
Wonderful property and hosts!
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.
Thank you so much for the great advertisement of Turks and Caicos vacation and your week here. Peter and I so enjoyed meeting you.
The TreeHouse - Loved It
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.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful and detailed review of your time in Provo.
It was so well expressed and anyone reading it will want to come to Provo and stay at Tree House Apartment.
Also thanks for including Peter. I just read the review to him and he is so proud.
I look forward to your next visit.
Privacy by the Beach -- Great Unit, Location, and Hosts.
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).
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.
