"The 4 of us, 2 Americans and 2 Brits, take holiday rentals around the world whenever we can and this year we wanted somewhere quiet and relaxing to cover from a somewhat traumatic year. Ocean Breeze, only steps from a truly beautiful and almost deserted beach in N. Caicos, and with its pool, garden furniture and gazebo fitted the bill to perfection. Inside was as described, comfortable and well equipped with everything we could need.
However, what made our holiday truly memorable was rhe warmth, kindness and efficiency of our hosts, Darville and Kadra. They, with their delightful little daughter Nikki and their friendly dog, Roxie, lived next door and we're always available if needed but never intruded. Kadra got in groceries as requested for our arrival, organised our transport from Provo airport by taxi, ferry and another taxi to the house, provided us with a local cell phone with her number in so that we could contact her and offered to take us to a local barbecue the following evening where we could meet some of her friends and relatives. We took her up on that and had a great time and went again on our own the following week. She organised a car for us so that we could explore the island and cross the causeway to Middle Caicos which was well worth doing as we found lovely views, caves to visit, good food at Mudjin Bay and at Daniel's cafe where we also met Lovey, a local singer, talked with the very interesting Daniel and discovered the wonderful sea grass baskets made by the ladies of the local co-operative. When Kadra discovered it was Rodney's birthday, she brought us a gift pack of wine and snacks. Nothing was too much trouble for her and when the time came for us to leave she organised an overnight stay for us in Provo with taxi service from ferry to hotel and hotel to airport provided by her lovely young nephew. In spite of her busy schedule, because our car was too small for all of us and luggage, she came home to drive 2 of us to the ferry and wish us all farewell. Darville had also responded promptly to switch on a generator for us when there was a power cut. Terrific service from them both.
We took a boat trip, snorkelled a little, enjoyed good food and drink and really loved the friendly welcoming Islanders and very much hope to visit again."
