The perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for something very easy and relaxing and this house was perfect for that. It was so close to the beach, which was absolutely stunning. It almost felt like your own private beach. Also, the location was ideal. It was close to town and literally 20 min bike ride away. We really enjoyed the bikes that the house offered. It was a his and her. :) We will cherish our time here fondly.

What an exceptionally lovely cottage to stay in and an equally wonderful destination! Although this was not our first time to TCI - and certainly not our last - we will definitely stay at Artemis again!

The cottage is incredibly private, clean and well-maintained and feels like home. If you are searching for a quiet location - this is it! The house is situated on a corner lot with plenty of protection (foliage) all around - and is located within a brief 5-minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The canopy of trees on the property is an added bonus to deflect the hot sun and how wonderful it was to have ample space directly by the cottage. (The lot next door is part of the property adding another element of privacy.) Ruth has thought of all of the essentials one would need to cook, clean and operate the house as if it were your own.

The natural breeze was welcomed daily as we are not big into air conditioning, however, there is a room air conditioner (in the master bedroom) if needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our veranda time morning and night - coffee & cocktails - and the comfy furniture made every moment outdoors even better.

There are two bicycles available for use (we chose to walk) and multiple beach chairs, and a box of beach float toys - literally, the cottage does not lack anything.

Ruth was exceptional to work with and answered all emails promptly and provided a compilation of recommendations to enhance your vacation.

We have shared our fantastic experience with our friends and family and highly recommend the Artemis Retreat while vacationing in TCI.

Thank you Gordon Family for sharing your fantastic property with us!

Tranquility Exemplified!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot possibly recommend the Artemis Retreat enough! If you are searching for a low-key and quiet vacation - stay here!

The cottage is well appointed with everything you need. The mornings are a heavenly treat on the veranda with a steaming cup of coffee accompanied by a lovely tropical breeze rustling through the canopy of trees.

We traveled with four adults and each of us loved the beautifully peaceful and private setting. The space is suitable and not overwhelming. We had proper linens, towels, plenty of dishes, kitchen appliances and a bbq which was fabulous as we prepared most meals at the house.

We are all beach/sun people so having the beach and water so close in proximity is a bonus!

Ruth is an absolute pleasure to communicate with and answers emails promptly.

When we return to TCI - we will definitely book the Artemis Retreat again!

Thank you, Ruth!

Your Montana guests,

Kara & Garry

Peaceful retreat with a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay here. Ruth was very accommodating, and the place was perfect for us. Every convenience we needed, a beautiful big verandah for cocktails and meals outside, and a quiet, natural location with a choice of 3 beautiful beaches to choose from. Highly recommended!

Our family vacation june 4 to 10 2017

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and modern appliances . The gas grill worked well. The house is very secluded and quiet . The outdoor shower was nice. Every thing you could possibly need is in the house and very well organized . I contacted Ruth after we returned home and told her about the air conditioner being to small for the house. The 2 smaller bed rooms get warm at night when my kids were trying to sleep . She said she might add another A/C unit. Overall we enjoyed our stay. One disappointment was that the house that is beachfront at Nightjar Ave (the beach access that is a 4 minute walk from Ruth's house) , has a collapsing sea wall .There were large piles of broken concrete and broken steel cages at the access and in the surf that you had to walk around. This is not Ruth's fault but i am just suggesting that you use the next access down the beach at Sandpiper Ave . It is to far to walk to with beach supplies so we drove there. The best and easiest snorkeling site is at the CORAL GARDENS beach access, about a 15 minute drive and you have a nice bar and restaurant that you can use. We also met Olga and she was very friendly. Thank you Ruth we hope to stay again some day. Joe and Michele

Wedding Week in Provo

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a week to Provo and loved every minute of our time. The house is larger than appears in the photos, which is a great problem. Certainly rent a car as our one experience on wedding day taking cabs took quite some time and cost more than the rental cost for the car for a day.

Most of our group stayed at Beaches, but we prefer the quiet and privacy in Leeward. Often we were the only ones on the beach! Some recommendations for your time include: Bugaloos, Smiths Reef (snorkeling), The Landing for Ribs on Saturday, Turks Kebab, Caicos Bakery, Thursday night Fish Fry and Snorkeling for Shells at Leeward Beach. Lastly, be sure to bring a bunch of Deep Woods Off or some other Mosquito Control. It's tropical and there are bugs all around.

The cottage is situated in the northeastern part of the island of Providenciales, in the peaceful residential community of Leeward; away from the crowds yet only a few minutes drive to golf course, shops, restaurants, marina and casino. A private setting in a lovely, fenced-in tropical garden, few minutes stroll to Pelican Point Beach, the most beautiful and quiet stretch of Grace Bay Beach.
