Property type apartment

About the property


Your own little piece of paradise.

Reef House is one of the best places to stay on the island.

Reef House is located RIGHT on the beach. So close you can almost touch the water. Hang out on your spacious, screened in porch, our large deck or lounge on white, soft sugary sand. Then when you can't stand the heat anymore you can roll off your lounge chair and slip into T&C's famous turquoise crystal clear waters.

No having to lug your stuff down an elevator or flights of stairs because you're right on the beach. You can walk mere steps to grab a cold one right out of your very own fridge with limitless ice.

Reef House is on Pillory Beach. The shallow and deep clear waters (average temp. 84F), make it ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The beach is located in a protected marine park so you can take in the vibrant views and abundant sea life along the reef just offshore. If you love to dive you will love diving in the deep blue waters along the 7,000 foot wall.

A cooling breeze from the east coast keeps the Beachfront Suites very comfortable most of the time, but there are ceiling fans and air conditioning, so there is always relief from the afternoon and night time heat.

Reef House boasts an open concept living space with a direct unobstructed view of the ocean from the living and dining areas. Our well equipped kitchens are designed to make them a great space for cooking and entertaining.

You will find a vibrant outdoor living area within the screened-in veranda /porch surrounded by nature. The veranda faces the ocean so you’ll have a beautiful breeze as you sip your morning coffee or evening cocktail to watching breathtaking sunsets.

You will love it.

About Dawna Henderson or Pierre Mathieu

I'm an Ex Internet Advertising Executive and Pierre is a Marine and Residential Master Electrical Contractor (and the Martha Stewart of home repair) Pierre is originally from Montreal and speaks fluent French and attended McGill University. I founded and owned a Digital Ad Agency (henderson bas) for 13 years and Pierre still continues to work here and there in Toronto and the Caribbean.. We both love Grand Turk. We have been coming to the island for over 12 years and have decided to semi-retire here. In fact we eloped here three years ago. Pierre and I are both detailed oriented people and love to take care of our property. I don't like to boast but I have great taste so the interior of the Suites are nicely decorated and Pierre loves to build and fix stuff. We're both service oriented people and take great pride in making Reef House a place you'll want to tell your friends and family about and return to again and again.

Why Dawna Henderson or Pierre Mathieu chose Grand Turk

It's unlike any other island in the Caribbean. Not too many people know of Grand Turk and that's what makes it so special. It's one of the best kept secrets in the Caribbean. You don't have to dress up for dinner unless you want to, or sit on a beach with hundreds of other tourists. Yes there are things to do in the evening and more than enough activities during the day, but if you want to shop or go to nightclubs you won't find them here in Grand Turk. The people are great and the marine life is fantastic. You can visit other Cays each having their own charm - Salt Cay or Gibbs Cay.

What makes this apartment unique

If you love animals like we do, you're in for a big treat. It boasts the 3rd largest barrier reef system in the world (7,000 barrier reef wall). So the diving is spectacular as well as the snorkeling.

From December to mid March, you can sometimes spot Humpback Whales from your very own veranda. You may even catch a pod of Dolphins swimming right past your Beachfront Suite. There are also wild donkeys and horses all over the island.

We offer each Suite a Weber propane BBQ should you wish to dine on freshly caught fish caught that afternoon that can be purchased down the street at the local fish market. We provide two complimentary bicycles so you can take in the sites of this unique island. Our suites face the national marine park and the 7,000 foot barrier reef- so take our paddle boards (no charge) and paddle out to the reef.

We want to offer our guests everything we look for when we travel. Accommodations that are super clean, well maintained, nicely decorated, TV with cable, Internet and a great bathroom with endless hot water and great water pressure. It also has to be right on the water. Reef House has all of this and more.

Dawna and Pierre are so hospitable! There isn't a need that will go unattended if you stay here, and you've got your own space too! They have the best beach gear you could want. The apartment is very clean and fresh. Thumbs up!

Great beachfront location

  • 5 of 5

The Reef House is ideally located and is directly on the beach. Our favorite parts of the day were mornings and evenings on the deck and porch from which you can see spectacular views of the ocean, sunsets and starry nights. The property is clean, modern, well equipped and well maintained. Dawna and Pierre are excellent on-site hosts, providing all that you need to make your visit enjoyable.

Outstanding experience!

  • 5 of 5

Dawna and Pierre have created a very special place in Grand Turk. They have thought through all the details that made our stay so comfortable and memorable. The view and setting is completely amazing. We enjoyed our coffee on the screened in porch every morning after a wonderful night of sleep (there is AC). The days consist of relaxing, biking, swimming, and paddle boarding and more. There are two grocery stores within walking/biking distance. I need to say a special word about our hosts. They were awesome! They struck the perfect balance between ensuring you felt welcome and comfortable at the same time ensuring you had personal space. So lovely! Do not hesitate to go it was fantastic and gorgeous. Thank you Dawna and Pierre, u were so warm and welcoming! We loved being in Grand Turk, loved staying in your beautiful place, and loved meeting you:)

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay here for a week. Dawna & Pierre have thought of everything so you don't have to! The place is so well appointed with everything you could need but even more importantly, there's nothing that you don't need. This leaves you to savor and celebrate all the simple things in life with gratitude and joy. I can almost still hear the reassuring rhythm of the tides and feel the happy rhythm of this gem of an island. It's like a reset button for your soul. We are returning home refreshed, restored and ready to continue our lives with a little more spring in our step just knowing that Reef House exists and that we could come back when we need to. It's quite literally our new "Happy Place". Thanks Dawna, Pierre, their friends, their special dogs, and our "neighbors" for such a great time!

Reef House is absolutely stunning! Dawna and Pierre have created an impeccable retreat. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beauty and tranquility of Grand Turk. We spent every evening enjoying the sunset on the screened in porch and every morning having coffee on the deck. The view from the veranda is AMAZING! You will never get tired of looking at the beautiful beach and the stunning turquoise water. There is a constant breeze that keeps the condo cool and comfortable. We only used the air conditioning twice during our 7 day stay. You can sleep with the windows open and have the crashing waves lull you to sleep.

We spent our days snorkeling, paddle boarding, playing with the potcakes (island dogs), and relaxing on the beautiful beach.

If you want to scuba dive while in Grand Turk, I recommend Grand Turk Diving Company. They are awesome.

The condo itself is beautifully designed and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need and more.

I do recommend that you bring your own meat and groceries. We opted not to bring much food, and we should have. The meat at the local grocery store was a little scary and very expensive. When the cruise ships are not in port, some of the local restaurants don't open.

We rented a golf cart from Omar and that was a blast. We went everywhere on the island. I would definitely recommend a golf cart.

It's evident that Dawna and Pierre put a lot of love in the design and details of Reef House. This is a great beach house!

Reef House is absolutely beautiful- it’s impeccably designed and just steps to the ocean with beautiful views- you are basically on your own private beach with turquoise waters and the whitest of sands. It’s also perfect in that it is in a great location where you have the serenity of the ocean and a relaxing space to come home to while also being close enough to town if you want to explore further. Coming from NYC, I immediately noticed that everything at the Reef House is very new and chic and has all the amenities you want. Not only is the place beautiful but both Dawna and Pierre are also the most generous, kind and thoughtful hosts. They are experts on the island and absolutely know how to make your vacation one that you will never forget. They truly just want their guests to have a blast and be able to disconnect. Having been incredibly successful in their own careers, they understand what it takes to create a relaxing experience and built the Reef House from the ground up to create the perfect oasis.

It's a separate island from Provo.

Grand Turk :

If you want great shopping and night clubs, Grand Turk is not for you. It however is one of the best islands in the T&C. It's more bohemian in it's vibe. It's laid back and chilled. Unlike Provo you can whip around the island in a golf cart. If you love the water there is lots to do. The diving and snorekling here is some of the best in the world. From Dec to the beginning of March you will witness the Humpback Whales - amazing sight.
