Vacationing on the Grand Turk was the best thing we ever did. The beaches, the island, the sunshine, the weather, the temperature, the people and of course the potcakes all together made our vacation an awesome one. Staying at the Crabtree Apartments is what tied it all together. At Crabtree we were in the perfect location. Crabtree is located right on the beautiful beach where you get just the right amount of breeze to keep the apartment cool and you can listen to the waves. I fell asleep twice on the veranda listening to the waves. It is so relaxing. Crabtree is also just the right distance away from town, the airport and the cruise center but yet close enough to walk. By no means do you have to walk. There are many taxi's , car rentals, scooter rentals and golf cart rentals but our preferred mode of transportation were the bikes that Crabtree provides. They are perfect because on bike you get to see more of the island due to the fact your not zooming past everything. On bike you get to know the people living on the island. Everybody waves and says hello. There wasn't a time that I was riding the bike that I didn't get into a conversation with at least one of the locals. They are exceptionally nice people. If anyone thinks you may need help, they will pull their car to the side of the road just to ask. They make you feel at home. Ok back to Crabtree Apartments. They are beautifully well kept apartments. The size is perfect. They aren't small and cramped, and they are not huge where you have to spend a lot of time to clean. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, pans and pretty much anything you need to cook and serve food with. The bedrooms are very comfortable I haven't slept that good in a long time. The things that set Crabtree apart from the rest of the rental places that I've seen is #1 already mentioned the location, #2 The veranda. It offers a beautiful and comfortable view of the beach and ocean but offers a retreat from the sun. If you look at the other rentals they seem too open, giving up privacy and don't offer much for shade. #3 You only have 2 neighbors. This allows you to have the privacy that you want to rest and relax, but also gives you the chance to meet new people if you choose to. The other rentals that I've seen there are six or more units.
Thank You for such a wonderful vacation.
