Grand Turk Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

Quaint 2 air-conditioned bedroom, 1 bath, beachfront apartment unit, in a single story building, nestled on a sandy beach overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Our unit has gorgeous views from almost every room and a wonderful covered beach side veranda where you can listen to the gentle lapping of the sea and view the beautiful sunsets. Come enjoy our wonderful swimming and snorkeling beach, the best of both worlds. Walking distance to town and restaurants.

Grand Turk is a charming 'Old World' Caribbean island with quaint colonial buildings lining the narrow walled streets. The local people are very friendly on this laid-back Caribbean island. This is a British governed island, the currency is the US dollar.

Introduction: Crabtree Apartments is a single story building, nestled on the beach with gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea. There are wonderful views from nearly every room in the apartment. Both the living room and one of the bedrooms open onto a large private beach front veranda where you can relax to the sound of the gently lapping waves. The veranda is sure to be your favorite place to relax with cocktails while you watch the sunset or take pleasure in watching the color of the water change from royal blue to turquoise as you enjoy your breakfast.

Apartment Description: Unit has a fully equipped kitchen, 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, 1 bath, dining/living room with wonderful views and opens to a large, private veranda.

We are located on a beautiful quiet beach and are an easy 10 minute walk to town and restaurants. Grand Turk is a lovely 'Old World' Caribbean island with charming colonial Bermudian architecture.

About Grand Turk: Grand Turk is a small “Old World” Caribbean island. The island has maintained the charm of the colonial days due to the many antique colonial Bermudian buildings that line the walled streets. You’ll feel as though you stepped back in time as you venture out for an evening stroll. There are beautiful views from nearly every place you visit on the island. Many of the restaurants are seated on the edge of the beach, a romantic setting for a leisurely meal. The local people are friendly and welcoming. The Turks and Caicos are considered some of the safest in the Caribbean, they are British governed islands but the currency is the U.S. Dollar.

Come and visit us here in our little piece of paradise. We literally are on the edge of the beach with all the amenities of your own apartment right at your fingertips. We know you will love it and look forward to seeing you.

Note: What we have that most other apartment and house rentals on Grand Turk don't have is the beach right outside your door and to be within walking distance to town and restaurants. (Not across the street or on the other side of the island.)

About Jessalyn Zaykoski

We are a family owned vacation rental.

Why Jessalyn Zaykoski chose Grand Turk

We have been traveling to Grand Turk for over 20 years now and still love it. There have been some changes but not too many. Our first visit to Grand Turk was with a couple of friends and our oldest daughter, she was not yet 2 at the time. We found an article about Grand Turk in the Boston Globe and decided to go.

We fell in love with island and the people. It's the kind of place where you feel like you fell off the side of the earth. Grand Turk has a nice easy pace of it's own which lets you unwind and really relax.

What makes this apartment unique

We find it so easy to travel to the Turks and Caicos because the currency is the US Dollar and it is only a 1 1/2 hour flight to Florida. The beaches are beautiful, the people are friendly and the scuba diving is superb.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We totally enjoyed a little piece of paradise. The apartment was great. Clean and had everything we needed including breakfast for the next morning. Very nice. Apartment was clean and comfy. Towels were even nice. The dogs were great. We felt very safe. Barking at strangers early in the morning, not so good. But they were otherwise well behaved. We saw the black dog at Sand Bar one night. She laid by us while we ate and then followed us to the car. When I opened the door she got in and took a ride back to the apartment. Too funny. Enjoyed having a car to use even though the islands is small. Water was unbelievably beautiful. Very quiet and relaxing. Bike riding was fun. Arelys the manager, was so nice and helpful. Use bug spray on legs if you are susceptible. Thank you for helping to make our vacation so memorable and relaxing. It was all good.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

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.

A great pleasure

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Crabtree though a fifth visit to Turks and Caicos for 2 out of our party of six. A pleasure in part because the bungalows are right on a quiet, beautiful beach with easy access into the water (no ironshore here), in part because of how very well-furnished and -equipped they are. Units 2 and 3 with a connecting door are good for family groups. Covered porches were constantly used. We cooked many meals and appreciated Jessalyn's tips on finding fresh vegetables, homemade bread and specialty ice cream. When we were there (Christmas through New Year's) we were unable to find fresh fish. Ate at Barbie's, Osprey, Bohio, Margaritaville, Sandbar and Cool Beans. The water off Crabtree is a good place for beginning snorkelers to practice - there are a variety of fish out front - but overall the snorkelling from shore on Grand Turk is disappointing for experienced snorkelers. Going out at least once with a tour operator is recommended - floating over the 7,000-foot deep Grand Turk trench is a spooky but exhilarating experience. So - for other reasons - is Margaritaville. when cruise ships are in. We recommend visiting the National Museum (and its gift shop); listening to "rake and scrape" music; a day trip to snorkel/dive and eat on Salt Cay; and enjoying the sweet-natured potcakes (stray dogs) that are everywhere. Grand Turk is not for people who want shopping and nightlife but good for divers and those who want a quiet, largely self-directed vacation.

Perfect holiday in Grand Turk

  • 5 of 5

Our apartment was just ideal. While relatively simple, it was very nicely decorated and included everything we needed and more. The setting is fantastic, right on the beach and by the sea with a constant sound of the waves. It's also very close to the main part of town where the best restaurants are, so, therefore easily accessible on foot or by bike. We very much appreciated the provisions that had been provided on our arrival. We will definitely return - perhaps with our married family!
