Overview

Grand Turk Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Open plan 1 bed + sofa bed, kitchenette, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2-4

Come stay on a tropical beach in a charming cottage, only a short walk from Cockburn Town on the lovely peaceful island of Grand Turk. Breathtaking views, a wonderful beach, superb swimming, diving and snorkeling are right outside your front door. The combination of fun, informal restaurants, expert dive shops, friendly locals, and a relaxed pace of living makes a vacation in Grand Turk uniquely appealing. A trip to Grand Turk transports you back to the 'Old Caribbean,' before big hotels, high rises and crowds of tourists.

Enjoy dazzling water views all day, and relax with a drink or dinner while watching beautiful sunsets. The beach has small tidal pools, shade and (usually) gentle waves. No need to worry about 'reserving a beach chair' on Grand Turk. Instead, miles of virtually empty beaches on the western shore offer a tranquility that is hard to find in the modern world.

This house is part of Island Passage, which has this cottage, a three bedroom, two bath house (listing number 3628761), and a one bedroom unit.

The open plan cottage has a fully functional kitchenette, a large screened porch with a lounging and dining area, ceiling fans and air conditioning. The fenced in yard protects the landscaping from wandering horses and cows. it is literally a few steps away through your gate to the shade of the Casuarina trees on the beach. You can beachcomb and snorkel in front of the cottage, get picked up by a dive boat for a fantastic experience on Grand Turk's Wall, stroll into town (150 yards away) to wander down Duke Street, or rent a bike or hire a taxi to go a little further afield.

Perfect Island Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I travel often and decided to go somewhere new for his 40th Birthday. I found this beachfront cottage and was beyond pleased with my choice! The cottage is a perfect size for couples and had everything you need. I dont think we needed anything more than what was supplied already! It was a pleasant surprise to find items like dish soap, salt and pepper, coffee and coffee filters already stocked (as its such a waste to have to buy them for a short weeks visit- you can never use a whole bottle of dish soap or 50 coffee filters in that time!)

The property owners sent us a packet of useful information prior to arriving. Upon our arival, we met Deb, who was extremely helpful with getting us settled in- she even helped use arrange a taxi ahead of time :) From getting to know whats around to which restaurants have events on specific nights, Deb was a valuable resource!

We rented bikes from the dive shop that is only about a two minute walk from the cottage. We were able to bike around most of the island and explore. The dive shop folks were very helpful and famliy-like. They pointed us in the right direction for the best snorkeling and where to find other things we needed. All of the town restaurants/bars are within walking distance (excpet Bohio, which is about a 10 minute bike ride). We could even walk to the liquor store! The larger grocery store is a little long for a walk but is about a 5-10 minute bike ride, easily do-able.

The cottage had everything we look for in a vacation rental- on the beach (and we were the ONLY people on it 99% of the time- which we loved), close to dining and necessities, and best of all- very private and low key!
The porch was perfect for coffee in the morning, or wine in the evening, playing cards and relaxing- and thanks to the internet we could use the international music radio app "jango" (like pandora but can be accessed outside of the USA).

We have already discussed that we plan on returning to this relaxing oasis. One of our favorite trips by far!!!

Great Location!!

  • 4 of 5
My Husband & I stayed at the cottage over Christmas Holiday 2013. We had previously stayed on the North side of the island & decided to stay in town this year. The Beachfront Cottage was the perfect location, as it is a short walk to town, Blue Water Divers (highly recommend), Sandbar restaurant and Secret Garden restaurant. We met Deb, who checked us in & answered all of our questions. She was very nice & very helpful:-) The cottage was clean, with a comfortable queen size bed. The living space is cozy for couples with a futon for late night TV & an easy internet access--if you feel you must stay connected. The kitchen is a kitchenette with various pots/pans; you will do just fine if you are a "True Cook":-) The Bathroom is "galley style". It had plenty of towels & soap. The front porch is wonderful for morning coffee, afternoon breaks or wine before dinner. The Beachfront is a short walk across the yard. As always the beaches in Grand Turk are just beautiful! with sparkling, multi-shades of blue water and white sand. The sunsets are never to be missed, as pictures barely capture what you eyes behold! You are able to snorkel off the beach which is a plus:-) Over all we enjoyed our stay very much! I know we will be returning soon!

Amazing Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this beachfront cottage. The cottage has everything that you could need, the beach is quiet and stunning, and location is great! The cottage was very clean, checking in was simple and management was very welcoming. The owners were a delight to deal with, refunding the deposit right after our stay. This is was a great spot and we hope to be returning again soon!

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
This beach bungalow couldn't be better! It's nestled in the corner of the property with the sea right out your front door. A beautiful large screened in porch is perfect for morning coffee, afternoon naps and star gazing at night. Everything you need to relax and enjoy the island is at your finger tips! The bungalow is quiet, clean and the airco amazing when you need it. You'll arrive, unpack and feel like you never want to go home. A quick walk down the beach takes you to the local establishments for lunch or dinner. The kitchen works great for cooking if you prefer to stay home. Your beach is beautiful and sunsets will take your breath away. Dive shops are right down the street. This property is what you are looking for to escape and relax. I'll be back for my next stay on Grand Turk!

Great choice for us

  • 4 of 5
We organized a trip last minute to TCI for some diving as other business travel plans fell through. Communication with the owner were obviously swift, we booked and paid by paypal within 5 days of arriving. There were not a lot of reviews so we took a leap of faith.
The cottage is a studio located on a fenced lot shared by another building housing a 1-bedroom and 3-bedroom unit. (Our neighbor was so helpful, took us to the grocery store, back to the airport.) The studio has a small kitchenette, a queen bed, a futon but its best feature was the screened porch. We had breakfast there every morning while the pets on the lot came to say hello. The studio was well located, allowing us to walk to some restaurants and our diveshop. Wifi was fast and there was cable tv as well. We didn't use the kitchen beyond making toast.
We enjoyed our time at this cottage. Grand Turk is a place where time has stopped. Animals roam freely, lots of old architecture, it is all very conducive to unwinding. There isn't much to do but you know, sometimes, that's a good thing...

the perfect get away

  • 5 of 5
this little beach cottage is the perfect place to unwind, relax and rejuvenate. it was everything we wanted and hoped for. the beach is the best--just a few steps from the front door and it is all yours! if you love collecting shells you won't even have to walk far. the cottage is clean and tastefully furnished and the screened in porch is a perfect place for morning coffee, afternoon reading and cocktails at sunset. the neighbors who live in the main house were wonderful and so accommodating. they only made our stay more special. it was hard to say goodbye!
grand turk is a very simple island. there is not much to do which was fine with us. pretty much everything revolves around the cruise center so if there are no ships in you may be limited in some activities. in fact on sunday when we departed for the airport neither of the 2 cab companies that were contacted showed up!! luckily our nice neighbor took us to the airport.
don't miss chris singing and playing on thursday nights at the sandbar; a trip to gibbs cay to swim with the string rays and a trip to salt cay. make sure you go with tim at crystal seas adventures. he will dazzle you with information and family knowledge!
if you choose this special place as your vacation rental you will not be disappointed!!!

The map location is not entirely accurate. We are the second to last house at the southern end of Duke Street. Or the first property south of the Osprey Beach Hotel. I guess even Google Maps has its limitations! The cottage is on the same property as our larger 3 bedroom house listing number 3628761.
