  • Great family get away

    "We just returned from 10 wonderful days at Makere cottage. My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon in Cane Garden Bay (Shans Bungalow, no longer a villa rental) and wanted to return for our 10 year anniversary. We found Makere online and thought it would be a fun place to stay with our family (boys ages 8 and 6, girl age 17 mos). The cottage was perfect, well kept and well stocked (even had a cooler for day trips to the beach) and very comfortable for our family ( the washer and dryer were a huge bonus, even the view from the clothesline was amazing!) The pool was very refreshing after a day at the beach and the boys absolutely loved it. The house grounds are well landscaped and well maintained and really added to the exotic charm of the property. The view is amazing, almost unbelievable in person. The location is great in that you are close to both Cane Garden and Brewers Bay, and a short drive down to Road Town for supplies if needed. Tina answered all of our questions prior to departure and really helped ease the anxiety that traveling with young children can bring. Mobbsie, the care taker, was very prompt and helpful in orienting us to the house and the area in general upon arrival. We rented a car from Jerry's and had a blast driving the crazy roads. We also rented some baby gear (high chair and pack-n-play) from Island Kids and had it delivered to the house prior to arrival. We could not have been happier, it was an amazing experience all around. It truly was a vacation for the record books."

  • You won't be disappointed...

    "The pictures don't do this Villa justice. Upon arrival we entered through a gate to see a beautiful house on a hill. Entering the villa everything was clean and up to date. The pool overlooking Chalk Sound was absolutely gorgeous!! The pool was large and we made great use of it. We were provided a cell phone, directions to local spots, as well as brand new beach toys for my 2 children. The unit really has everything you would need. As previously stated you will definitely need a rental car as this Villa is away from the hustle and bustle of tourists...which we enjoyed. We had a couple hiccups but Mrs. Raquel was quick to address the issues. I would more than recommend this Villa and I plan on coming back in the near future."

  • Wonderful Stay for Two Kiteboarding Families

    "My husband and I, our baby, and another family, with their 2 babies, recently stayed at the Ryder retreat in April 2016. This villa is very spacious - despite three crying babies, we could escape to the upstairs or downstairs for privacy and quiet. This villa is very well kept, clean, and modern. The caretaker Shawn was extremely friendly and helpful. One day we lost our car keys and he came to drive us to the rental car company to get another set. The fact that linens, bath towels and beach towels are all provided was very convenient. The villa had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay: the kitchen is fully equipped (pots, pans, coffee maker, blender - the only thing missing is a kettle!), there is ensuite laundry, several bathrooms for multiple guests, and the pool was lovely with recliners all around. We are fitness fanatics so the gym was an incredible bonus!! It is also fully equipped with several weight machines, free weights, etc. The only thing lacking is cardio equipment as the bike wasn't working, but that's not a big deal as we could go for an early morning run! We went to Turks for the kiteboarding on Long Bay Beach so we spent many days there. We were hoping that the villa would be a little bit closer (that would be the only fault I can find with this place) as it was a good 12 minute drive, whereas it would have been nice to have something walking distance. But the views from the villa are beautiful as it sits on top of a hill so we enjoyed watching the sunrises. Despite the heat, we managed to keep cool just by opening the doors and windows to let the breeze through. We only used the air conditioning in the bedrooms at nighttime and turned it off during the day when we went out. Lorri and Brian, the owners, were very responsive and accommodating. They allowed us to extend our stay at the last minute (when we realized the wind was picking up for kitesurfing!). We happily give an EXCELLENT recommendation if you are considering this villa for your stay in Turks!"

  • Another great trip to TCI

    "This being our 5th or so (I lost count!) visit to TCI we have stayed at many places on the island including Beaches which I still rate as #1.....but expensive. Ocean Club West is a great location and this specific unit is perfect for return trips. It's close to everything, you get the facilities of the hotel at your disposal, the beach is the same, nothing else to ask for. Just be aware that this unit being on the third floor you will need to be able to get up and down the steps (without complaining, you are at TCI after all) but you do get a better view and can enjoy the balcony. The balcony is facing inland, it's on the main street. The traffic is not heavy and being higher up the noise never bothered us, the bedrooms are on the other side so it's not an issue. I enjoyed watching cars and tourists go by. Communication with owners and local manager is good, no reason to worry about anything. Would go back for sure."
