Idyllic Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Recommended 100%! My wife and I spent 6 days 5 nights at the Hummingbird Bungalow for our baby moon (7 months pregnant at the time) and could not have been happier! The bungalow is clean, spacious, and with a great ocean breeze, high ceilings and ceiling fans you almost never need the A/C in the bedroom - though it does work well if necessary. Kitchen has all supplies necessary for cooking and we enjoyed the screened in porch in the mornings and back deck after the beach.

There seem to be 2 ways to do the island: 1) all-inclusive resort, where you may not leave the property or surrounding area, or 2) private rental where the autonomous vacationer can enjoy all the island has to offer, as well the privacy of their own home. We chose the latter! Car rental is essential, and worthwhile (not to mention fun!) as you can explore the entire island very easily -- with several spectacular beaches it is worth exploring. That said, our favorite beach was the Pelican/Sunset beach which is a 7 minute walk down the road. Incredible turquoise water and essentially your own private beach! We may have seen a dozen people the entire time. We recommend driving 2 mins to Sunset beach which is a little longer walk with beach gear, but a more spacious segment of beach. Truly amazing. Waters were so calm we went for long swims down the beach, got out walked a bit, ate lunch, then swam some more.

Grocery store is easy to manage and has the necessities -- though we recommend bringing as many snacks and breakfast foods (granola, dried fruit, crackers, chocolate, etc) as it is significantly more pricey than at home.

Mary our host was extremely responsive and available, while not being intrusive. Very gracious and welcoming. Bikes, snorkel gear, and all linens etc provided. Wifi, iPod dock, and TV (though we never turned it on).

We absolutely recommend the cottage to all those who are interested in a more independent vacation; those who enjoy creating adventure and exploring on their own rather than being stuck in a resort (not to say luxury resorts are welcomed occasionally :)

The only minor improvement would be more towel racks in the bathroom. Though we made do hanging them on the railing and doors.

A few other recs:
Malcom Roads Beach
Sapodilla Bay
Da Conch Shack
Mango Reef Restaurant
Hobie Cat rental


We feel like we did and saw a lot...and cannot wait to return for more! Hummingbird Bungalow is the place to go!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Hummingbird Guesthouse was wonderful. This was our first time on the island, but we decided we wanted to rent a house instead of staying on a resort. We found this house to be absolutely perfect for the experience we were looking for. It had everything we needed, including WiFi. The windows to the house stayed open the entire time, allowing the wonderful breezes to come through. The A/C unit in the bedroom works very well for the times when it got a little too warm. We went to the grocery store a couple of times and purchased food and drinks for the house for the times we knew we would be staying in.

It is a little ways from the "main areas" of shopping and restaurants, but we didn't find it to take long to get to where we needed to go. We rented a car, which I would recommend, but there are two bikes at the house which you could use if you are an avid bike rider. We used them to ride around the neighborhood, but we didn't use them to travel into town. There is a cafe/bakery close by at the Atrium resort, which has wonderful pastries, sandwiches, and an awesome BBQ buffet on Friday nights. It was a 2-minute drive but could also easily be gotten to by riding the bikes.

The beach is about a 5-7 minute walk from the house. It is a beautiful location, and there were few people on the beach each time we went. We found the waves to be a little rough at the times we went, but I am not sure if it was because of weather or if the water is usually like that. However, we enjoyed the beach, regardless, and you probably would have it to yourself at any given time.

As I said, it was our first time on the island, and we chose to rent a house instead of staying in a resort, and I am glad we did. I felt by staying at this house, we got a better "island experience." We felt safe here; every night starting at 6:00 p.m., there were security officers at the gatehouse entering the neighborhood, checking out who was coming in and out. We appreciated this. The neighborhood is not lit very well at night, but we still felt safe knowing the security guard patrol the neighborhood throughout the night.

Mary and James have both been very pleasant in every exchange we had with them, and we would recommend this house for anyone looking for a cozy island getaway.

Perfect Little House & Location!

Perfect Little House & Location!
  • 5 of 5
We recently traveled to Turks & Caicos and already want to return! James and Mary's guest house was absolutely wonderful and James and Mary were great hosts! The house is a great value for the money, very private, and perfect for the couple who don't mind cooking a few meals on vacation. While speaking to other travelers throughout our trip they were envious of our accommodations - especially the location to a very private beach. Typically there were less than half a dozen people as far as we could see - it really was unbelievable.

My wife and I used the pedal bikes made available by James & Mary and they came in handy to travel to nearby restaurants and harbor for a morning kayak run. We did rent scooters for a day and we are glad we did as it gave us an opportunity to really see the island.

The house itself was nice and comfortable. It's not too fancy but has everything you practically need for your trip. We really didn't spend a lot of time in the house anyways but when we did we felt at home. It has a private and secure location in a gated community.

One word of advise we would give is to stock up on snacks prior to your trip and bring with you as the local grocery store charges 2-3 times what you'd expect to pay in America.

We really can't say enough about this rental and dealing with James & Mary. It is a trip we are planning on taking again!

slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent two weeks at the hummingbird house for our honeymoon. To say the least it was the most idyllic relaxing vacation... The house is in the best location on all of grace bay(we visited the entire stretch). pelican beach at the end of the road is never crowded , turquoise water and there is always a perfect peaceful beautiful spot to set up your towel! my wife and i rode the bikes into town for dinner (about 15 mins on main rd) but you may want a car a few days to get groceries etc... If you are looking for a vacation that is quiet, away from crowds(but still accessible if desired) and romantic look no further!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My spouse and I rented this cozy bungalow for our honeymoon and it was exactly what we hoped for. It is located on the Northern side of the island, away from the big resorts and it is quiet. It is a brief walk to an isolated section of the beautiful beach and there was even a small reef to snorkel around and view colorful sea life. The bungalow included convenient amenities and we were able to ride the two bikes to get around the island for most of our trip. If we return to Turks and Caicos, we will be renting this space again.
