The Owner is English, a Company Director, based on the Cotswolds and married with three children and five grandchildren. We visit at least three times a year and have derived immense pleasure from staying at Columbus to 'recharge' batteries.
Jane Lambert purchased this cottage in 2000
In order to have a comfy holiday home with character, away from the UK cold and wet, very close to the sea, and with the best possible choice of restaurants within ten minutes drive .
Privacy (without isolation) is one of the outstanding qualities of Columbus. Close proximity to the 'World's Best Beach': Grace Bay Beach, dining out, diving, kiteboarding, snorkelling and Golf make the cottage a wonderful holiday home.
My husband and I were in need of sun/sea/recreation and we booked Columbus Cottage through VRBO. We found that it exceeded all expectations. We loved the privacy of the pool area and gardens, and we used the Gazebo for our breakfasts. The house was charming, comfortable and very well equipped. The accessibility of the sea was brilliant. My husband enjoyed the fishing, and it was a wonderful 'getaway' before our first baby arrives. We will be back.
Columbus Cottage is a well-cared for house a 7 minute walk to the far end of Grace Bay, a beautiful part of the beach. The house had literally everything we needed for cooking and playing, and the pool area was beautiful and relaxing. Our favorite part of the house was the wrap around veranda, which gave us a ton of room to spread out and relax. We also loved the beautiful, lush garden that provided complete privacy. The photos don't do the house justice as you cannot tell just how generously sized the wrap-around porch is. There is a newly built gazebo by the pool where we ate our breakfast every morning. A Zen-like place, we hope to return!
Peace and quiet are words to describe Columbus Cottage. Our stay here was just wonderful! Although very close to everything Grace Bay has to offer, we felt like we were in our own world. Columbus House itself was quite unique, comfortable, and cozy, and had everything we needed. Loved the screened-in wrap around porch and the shutters gave a very Caribbean feel to the house. A quick 2 minute drive to the lovely beach, where you could walk in either direction for miles and miles, seeing very few people. When not beaching it, the pool was fantastic, offering total privacy, and the lounge chairs were nice. We especially liked the more laid back beach restaurants along Grace Bay, although we ate some dinners in, which we also enjoyed. From the beginning, owner Jane made sure our stay was a good one, and property manager, Betty, met us at the airport to guide us to Columbus Cottage when we arrived. We knew we could contact her if any problems arose, which didn't. It was about a 20 minute drive. We did rent a car during our stay, which made it convenient to get around to see the island and just go back and forth into Grace Bay. We would definitely recommend doing that. The Gourmet Market was a five minute drive and had a good selection of things we would find back home. We also went to IGA on the main highway a little farther away, but their selection was not much different than Gourmet Market. There is a local pharmacy near the Gourmet Market, as well, if you happen to need anything. Regarding mosquitoes and other bugs, there were hardly any, so bug spray went unused. All in all, our stay at Columbus House far exceeded our expectations and it would be the only place we would stay if we returned to Providenciales.
We have fallen in love with this home and location, in fact this was our 2nd visit this year. If you are looking for a quiet and secluded vacation, this is the place. The home is only about 15 min from the airport and close to restaurants, grocery, and the beach.
The home comes with everything you need for a perfect stay. We enjoyed grilling our dinners, sipping wine on the screened in porch, midnight swims in the pool and long quiet strolls on the beach. We can’t wait to return.
we stayed at the cottage for 8 days and we absolutely enjoyed it, the house was very cozy and made us feel at home. The pool was great and also loved how the beach was at walking distance.
We were looking for a secluded vacation to celebrate our anniversary, this home was perfect! The only neighbors you can see are the roof tops. We loved spending our mornings walking on the secluded beach picking up conch shells and the afternoons laying by the pool. Close to everything convenient, grocery store, restaurants, and bars, however we hardly left except to go to the grocery. The home has everything you need for a relaxing stay without any worries. We can’t wait to return!
We have just returned from an absolutely wonderful 5 day stay at Columbus Cottage...truly a gem. We could not have been more pleased with the experience. The setting, natural landscaping, location, amenities, pool and the ease of it all, kept us “at home” for our entire stay. Having Graceway Gourmet supermarket just minutes away, with its "Whole Foods" feel, made filling the fridge a happy endeavor, though not inexpensive. Columbus Cottage provided the perfect restorative getaway...enjoying long morning walks just minutes away on the beach, amazing shelling (though you cannot take conch shells off the island without a government permit), lazing for hours beside the pool, quiet private dining on the veranda or at the gazebo poolside, and the quiet solitude of absolute privacy. And while many rental properties are “sterilized” so as not to expose any personal elements of the owners, we loved gazing at the family pictures on display throughout the cottage – made it feel real and intimate. Though we did not really venture out, the house is minutes from Grace Bay shopping, dining and gambling. A property with lots of character and desirable features, we would recommend Columbus Cottage to others without hesitation and will happily return.
