Overview

About the property

Open plan 1 bed, kitchenette, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2-3 (if 3rd is a child)

Come stay on a tropical beach in a charming cottage, only a short walk from Cockburn Town on the lovely peaceful island of Grand Turk. Breathtaking views, a wonderful beach, superb swimming, diving and snorkeling are right outside your front door. The combination of fun, informal restaurants, expert dive shops, friendly locals, and a relaxed pace of living makes a vacation in Grand Turk uniquely appealing. A trip to Grand Turk transports you back to the 'Old Caribbean,' before big hotels, high rises and crowds of tourists.

Enjoy dazzling water views all day, and relax with a drink or dinner while watching beautiful sunsets. The beach has small tidal pools, shade and (usually) gentle waves. No need to worry about 'reserving a beach chair' on Grand Turk. Instead, miles of virtually empty beaches on the western shore offer a tranquility that is hard to find in the modern world.

This house is part of Island Passage, which has this cottage, a three bedroom, two bath house (listing number 3628761), and a one bedroom unit.

The open plan cottage has a fully functional kitchenette, a large screened porch with a lounging and dining area, ceiling fans and air conditioning. The fenced in yard protects the landscaping from wandering horses and cows. it is literally a few steps away through your gate to the shade of the Casuarina trees on the beach. You can beachcomb and snorkel in front of the cottage, get picked up by a dive boat for a fantastic experience on Grand Turk's Wall, stroll into town (150 yards away) to wander down Duke Street, or rent a bike or hire a taxi to go a little further afield.

Great place to unwind and just relax

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to just unwind and totally relax then you need to go to this Island and rent this house. It is a great place for two people to stay. If you want something bigger they also own Island Passage that can hold a lot more people. I'm glad my wife and I choose the house we did it was perfect for us. There is a beautiful beach right in front out the house. There was a lot of beautifuly worn seaglass on the beach. My wife and I picked up about 10 pounds of seaglass. From big thick bottom of bottles that came from very old rum bottles to many green pieces of glass and a few blue pieces. There are also wild horses and Donkeys that roamed the island. We had 3 Donkeys come into the yard while we were there and eat the grass. I feed one lettuce right from my hand. He followed me around the yard for awhile looking for more handouts. There is also a few small bars and restaurants within a very short walking distance. There is a grocery store called Quality within walking distance too. It doesn't have a lot but you can get by if needed. If you rent a car I suggest going to E&R grocery store. We saw well stocked shelfs. Cees grocery store was just ok.

Again if you want place to rent that is very quite this is a great house to rent!!!

The cottage is a perfect place to get away on the beach.

  • 3 of 5

I very much enjoyed my stay in Grand Turk. The cottage is located right by the beach with very few others around. It is also very close to Cockburn. I would have rated it higher except for some maintenance issues. The water pressure was too low and variable. Then I had no water a couple of days into the trip. That was fixed by the end of the day. Apparently the hurricane had caused sand to get into the system and stopped the flow. Once they cleaned it out including the shower head, I had great pressure the rest of the week. Shannon was very responsive to us. There were also construction workers on the roof of the companion home on the property the whole week. Here again this was due to the hurricane. The whole island is struggling to rebuild and start up again. I would recommend the cottage as a charming place to stay— it will only be better with time to recover from a disaster. The bed was comfortable and the screened in porch was wonderful. The town is charming and feels like walking back in time. I hope to return someday soon.

Perfect for relaxing and scuba

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visiting Grand Turk for a 2nd time. We loved this cottage. The facility itself was great, as advertised, nothing fancy, fully functional, cozy and comfortable.

The location is amazing, particularly so for scuba. We had our own sand beach directly on front of us, empty except for us 90% of the time. A one minute stroll up the beach took us to the dive boat for Grand Turk Diving, our preferred scuba operation in Grand Turk. The same one minute stroll took us back to our cottage for our surface interval and after our 2nd dive of the morning.

We loved the quiet neighborhood, the walk to restaurants and Quality grocery store, the outdoor shower and the screened in porch.

We used the kitchen to prepare some meals. Never tried the TV or AC. Not our thing. If this is also not your thing, good chance you would also live this place.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on the Island before but the first time here and as usual it was great We had the pleasure of meeting the owners of this cottage and they couldn't of been more helpful. The check in was quick and friendly and we where on the beach within an hour of landing. It's within walking distance to everything you need. The screened inn porch was pretty much our living space when we where there. Would recommend this spot to anyone as a matter of fact I have friends looking at it right now!

Nice but needs some TLC

  • 4 of 5

Much of this cottage was as described: the supplies were excellent, kitchen was adequately equipped, the bed was comfortable, the verandah was terrific, the location was excellent, a beautiful beach was right outside the fence, the water was clear blue and there was a good swimming area.

However, the cottage needed some TLC. The shower control was bizarre, you could never tell if it was going to be hot or cold, strong stream or weak drizzle. You could never tell if turning it right or left was going to make it hotter or colder. We brought it to the agent's attention and a plumber came but it was going to be a major three day repair job. No one's fault but just an example of the needed work. A loss of water was quickly remedied, on a weekend evening, though when the water was restored is was with very low pressure. That was improved over the next few days. The screens were torn in several places and/or separating from the frames; a fan pull had been broken off the fan over the bed (a tall person could reach the remaining piece; a shorter person had to climb onto the bed.) Otherwise the fans were excellent. Again brought to the agent's attention but not repaired while we were there. Finally we found the futon rather uncomfortable just for sitting on; there were two mattresses on it and the top one tended to slip down over the front edge. It was heavy and difficult to shift it back up into position. We did not sleep on it so cannot comment about that.

For a longer stay, be aware that there are no laundry facilities on the premises. Other arrangements can be made. Also the small, but well functioning, 'fridge means frequent shopping trips. This was not a serious problem as there is a reasonably good grocery store just a few minutes walk away. There are neighbours very nearby, closer than the other units on the property, which may not be evident from the photos. One was aware of their coming and going but it was not an annoyance.

This is a lovely place. We enjoyed our month-long stay. We hope it will receive the attention it needs to warrant a more fully positive review.

Owner's Response: We finally got a multi day break in rentals to replace the shower controls, (which puts the shower out of commission for several days). We also addressed the other small issues, and we are working on a new futon mattress! Update: We got the futon mattress freshened up an added some big comfy pillows!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This rental is exactly as advertised. Everything you need, nothing you don't, clean, and quiet. The whole rental experience was easy and the owner and property manager were very communicative. The location of the property is just awesome! You're walking distance (minutes) from downtown Cockburn Town, and right on a beautiful stretch of beach. We couldn't have been a happier with our stay.

The map location is not entirely accurate. We are the second to last house at the southern end of Duke Street. Or the first property south of the Osprey Beach Hotel. I guess even Google Maps has its limitations! The cottage is on the same property as our larger 3 bedroom house listing number 3628761.
