The veranda is sure to be your favorite place to relax with cocktails while you watch the sunset and maybe even catch a glimpse of the infamous "Green Flash".

APARTMENT DESCRIPTION: This unit has a fully equipped kitchen, we even supply a few spices and a few grocery items to get your started. We know that after a day of travel the last thing you want to do is try to find the grocery store and shop. We supply a few breakfast items so that you can go out to dinner that night, have breakfast at the apartment in the morning, get your bearings and do your food shopping. We have 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and views of the sea, it has access to the veranda with the beach just beyond. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds that can be put together as a king bed, if you prefer, with views of the Salina and all the wildlife it attracts. The unit has 1 bath with a large tile shower.

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 and white washed walled lined 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 perched 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; We have the beach right outside your door and we are a pleasant residential area within walking distance to town and restaurants. Your rental unit will be directly on the beach. Our beach and swimming has very little seaweed and has a firm sandy bottom swimming area. Our family have run this vacation rental, on Grand Turk, since 2004 and have earned an excellent 5 star reputation. See our reviews on listing number 53010.
We are a family owned vacation rental. We have been renting our property here on Grand Turk for 11 years. Our family has been traveling to Grand Turk since 1988. We love the people and that it is a place where you can truly relax.

Our guests love us, as you can see by our reviews. We have many repeat guests you can see their reviews on listing number 53010. Our apartments are very clean. Irsa, our maid, takes great pride in her work.
We work hard at maintaining our units, so you can have faith that what you see in the pictures is what you get. We go above and beyond for our guests and even supply a few breakfast items so you don't have to rush right out the door after arrival to shop but can dine out that night, have breakfast in the AM and then venture out.
We are located in a pleasant residential neighborhood, walking distance to town and restaurants. We are located directly on the beach with the beach literally outside your door. Our beach is one of the nicest beaches for swimming on the island with a firm sandy bottom but we also have coral areas for wonderful snorkeling too. Many of our guests have commented saying they think we have the best beach for swimming and snorkeling on the island. I'm not sure I would go that far, as Governors Beach, a public beach, is truly beautiful. l would say we have the best private beach on the island (but remember in the Turks and Caicos no beach is considered private). That said, the number of people that pass by Crabtree Apartments, along the beach, in a day, you could probably count on one hand. If you are looking for privacy, a beautiful beach, clean, close to town and restaurants and with an excellent track record, we are it hands down!
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.
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 from Florida, 3 1/2 hours from Boston or New York. The beaches are beautiful, the people are friendly and the scuba diving is superb.
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.
We absolutely loved the Crabtree Apartments! The location was ideal as we could walk and/or bike to the dive shop, and restaurants each day. The apartment was clean, up to date with all appliances and furniture and nicely decorated...we would definitely recommend it to anyone staying on Grand Turk. The beach access right out your backdoor was the best part!
My husband and I have travelled all throughout the Caribbean and most villas are too rustic and/or very basic. Not Crabtree...it felt like a true "second home".
We cannot thank you enough for the staple groceries in the fridge upon our arrival...as we arrived at 6pm and had limited time to bike to the grocery store!!
We will be returning to Grand Turk as we love the diving; I can assure you we will choose Crabtree Apt again.
Thank you so much for everything
My new bride and I spent our honeymoon at this wonderful place. The private beach right out the door was great. Many moonlight swims. Close to area restaurants and stores. Never needed a car, the provided bicycles were perfect. The places are clean and well provided. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back. Really nice to have a little breakfast food in the fridge when we arrived. Nice touches all the way around. Nicely decorated too.
We had an amazing vacation at Crabtree Apartments! Everything was absolutely perfect! The swimming area at the beach right at Crabtree Apartments was absolutely perfect~especially for our kids who are 2, 5, and 6. We could swim in the warm, shallow, sandy-bottom water and then a few feet away could snorkel and see some pretty cool fish. We rented the middle and north unit and it was perfect for the grandparents to stay in the connecting unit. We absolutely wouldn't change anything about the location or place of our vacation to Grand Turk!
My wife and I had an incredible time while staying at Crabtree. We are not the types that enjoy the massive crowds that come with major resorts or cruises. We saw 4 people in total walk past our place on the beach and 2 of those were our neighbors! This is a place where you can do as much or as little as you want. We snorkeled for hours a day right out back and saw tropical fish, eel, barracuda, a manta ray & sea turtle. One of the days we chartered a boat with the neighbors and snorkeled 'the wall', dove for conch & went to an uninhabited island to swim with the tame stingrays. Crabtree was exactly what we were looking for. If you want to avoid herds of people and relax, this is the place.
Gorgeous location! Apartment was clean, well furnished and met our needs. Nice touch was eggs , bread and milk in frig. Beach is awesome. Dogs are fun. Followed us everywhere. Phone programmed with local numbers was very helpful. Price is good too.
When I see pictures that beautiful, I always assume they have been "enhanced" in one fashion or another. I can personally assure you that nothing has been enhanced! It is truly that close to the ocean and the colors are truly that magnificent! If you are seeking a true "rest & relaxation" kind of vacation, the kind where you lose all track of the days and of time, this is the place for you! It's located on a quiet side street, but just a few minutes walk to a grocery store, restaurants and diving shops. The apt was impeccably clean and I was very impressed with the comprehensiveness of information, about both the property and the island, that I received in advance of the trip. I wouldn't hesitate to book another stay here.
