I spent my 40th birthday in TCI, in Jim and Bunny's unit, and I can honestly say that I don't think there could possibly have been a better place to celebrate. Where do I start? First, TCI: SO GORGEOUS! The water is...well, perfection. The colors, the sand, the temperature, the gentle surf...no icky critters and totally pristine...I've never experienced anything like it. Get a car and explore the island: Chalk Sound, da Conch Shack, Bugaloos, Malcolm's Beach, North and Middle Caicos--there are so many places to explore and enjoy.
Second, the unit: Bunny was so helpful and pleasant to deal with, going out of her way to make everything as convenient as possible. The pictures don't give the unit justice: it's enormous, and bright and airy. It has everything you need, the bed is a little too comfortable (there were mornings I didn't want to get out of bed even though the beach was calling my name!) The location is amazing--all the conveniences of being a part of a resort (lovely pool, work out room, tennis courts, restaurant/bar and the best strip of beach in Grace Bay...towels, umbrellas, the whole nine); without having to be around tons of people. The unit affords a great deal of privacy, and you can walk to all the shops and many of the restaurants. Front desk hooks you up with everything from snorkeling trips to dinner reservations, to taxis. Also, can't leave out Denise, the property manager, who was extremely helpful and responsive.
One last thing...if you've never been to TCI, don't be persuaded to stay in other parts of the Island. Although there is beauty everywhere, Grace Bay is definitely where you want to be as a home base. Feel very, very lucky to have picked this place. And kind of jealous of those of you who are reading this, and get to stay here after me!
