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.

Peaceful, cozy cottage close to magnificent beach and in a great neighbourhood.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very quaint and comfortable for a couple seeking a relaxing vacation close to a quiet, prestine beach in Provo. It's a very short walk to Pelican Beach, and close to other interesting places on Provo, such as the Blue Marina and Grace Bay. The beach chairs and umbrellas were very handy to have as there is no shade on the beach. We found the cottage porch to be a nice place to relax and read at the end of the day. The outdoor shower was a nice amenity to have. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well equipped (except for lack of dishwasher, which we did not mind and would not have used in any event).

The owners and local property manager were helpful and attentive.

We had the most relaxing time!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cottage after dark and were pleased to see that the porch lights were left on for us. The cottage was exactly what we were looking for in a home away from home. It was well equipped with everything we could possibly need.

We spent our vacation touring the island and visiting all of the beaches. We would recommend taking a tour with Big Blue. We did the eco kayak tour and were entertained by our guide Hugo. We also went to Smith’s Reef and snorkeled a couple of times. We also took the ferry to North and Middle Cay and spent a day touring both islands. It was an amazing day visiting Bambarra Beach where we were the only people for miles. We then went to Conch Bar Caves and had a tour with Cardinal Arthur who spent his childhood playing in the caves and entertained us with many stories.

All in all we had our most memorable vacation yet but we are sure we will return to make more memories!

Kite Surfing Fun

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I decided on the Turks and Caicos because it was direct from Boston, had beautiful beaches and great kite surfing. The Artemis Retreat was in a great location from the kite surfing beach and a short walk to a relaxing beach. Every morning we sat on the porch and drank coffee...it was absolutely perfect. The house was exactly what you would expect a cute beach bungalow to be. It was very private and set nestled in the surrounding foliage. We also used the outside shower everyday which was really great. Most nights we drove a few minutes to the resorts to get a really great dinner. It was a really great vacation and we would definitely go back! :)

L’endroit parfait pour se reposer

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine magnifique. La maison est située sur un terrain intime dans un environnement très tranquille à 2 minutes à pied d’une magnifique plage presque déserte. Et que dire de l’incroyable mer turquoise… faut le voir pour le croire. La maison est très bien équipée, très propre et très confortable. Tout est en place pour s’assurer de magnifiques vacances. Ruth est très gentille et a répondu à toutes nos questions avec empressement. Elle a tout fait pour nous assurer un excellent séjour.

Ruined vacation. Horrible rental. Stay away!

  • 1 of 5

My son and I arrived at the cottage on July 1st, 2014. It became immediately obvious to both of us that the rental was falsely advertised. We came across:

1. Complete misrepresentation of the rental unit.

2. Fraud.

3. Absolutely anti-sanitary conditions including health-hazardous mold all-over the house and leaking water/urine from the broken toilet (the property manager refused to send anyone to fix it).

The pictures you see here have nothing in common with what you are about to face in reality.

Bed linens were covered with blood and rust. Air-Conditioning unit is installed only in one room above the main bed which is absolutely not enough to keep the whole cottage at the comfortable temperature level. All appliances (kitchen, bathroom, bedroom vanity) are 25 years old, very dirty and extremely unattractive. Kitchen sink is exceptionally dirty, rusty and old. Refrigerator is covered with dirt and rust. Its handle is sticky and you don’t want to even touch it. The floors are covered with dirt and mold. Shower curtain is covered with black mold. Cabinets are covered with black mold and food stains. Beds are very uncomfortable. Mattress on the main bed is stuffed with something resembling hay. There is NO Internet (wi-fi) in the cottage. TV is small and functions very poorly. Beach supplies (chairs, umbrella, etc.) are broken, dirty and rusty – dangerous and unsafe to use. The whole cottage is very dark inside. It is over 25 years of age and has never been upgraded or remolded since it was first built. The house if full of mosquitoes (which makes the stay in the house additionally uncomfortable).

The cottage is totally mispriced. The listed price is ridiculously high. We visited villas around the island that are rented for exactly same amount of money. They are in pristine condition, sparkly clean, brand-new, beautifully decorated and have a POOL!

We were supposed to stay for 2 weeks in this rental. But after experiencing the conditions of the cottage we decided to stay there for only one week - just for the beautiful sea.

We gave a phone call to the owner the same evening we arrived at the cottage. She appeared to be very surprised and annoyed with our complaints. She was NOT helpful at all. The property manager was rude as well.

Unfortunately, the travelers are not given the option to post their photos of the rentals here. I have plenty of pictures that prove every single word that I’ve written here. Please, stay away from it!

Owner's Response: Your review of our property, constitutes a misrepresentation of the facts. The issues you previously raised with me were: A stained sheet (it has been removed)- A tiny stain on the underside of a duvet cover (cleaned) - discoloration of the kitchen sink, and the pipe behind the toilet (cleaned) - A toilet leak (checked by our plumber). You stated that we have a mould issue. These communications are documented in our email thread. Our property is a beach cottage, in the style of the old Caribbean. It is clean and comfortable. The appliances are older, but function well. The property is a private family cottage. We have stayed here many times with our children. They have allergies, and I have environmental sensitivities. There is no mould problem. We would never knowingly expose anyone to unsafe conditions. Your comment about the bed in the Master bedroom is untrue. There is a foam mattress on this bed. Since purchasing the cottage, we have done a number of upgrades. All linens, window coverings, glassware and dishes have been replaced. Most of the interior has been repainted. A sofa, side tables, lighting fixtures and soft furnishings have been purchased. I worked hard on your reservation. You changed your details three times, and I rewrote and re-sent your contract twice. I addressed all your questions in a timely fashion. In the humid Summer months, there are more mosquitoes. Specific procedures (keep the screen door closed), are outlined in our Guest Guide. A copy of this guide was sent to you well in advance. Late on the evening of your first day, you phoned our home. You communicated a litany of issues. I indicated that I would contact my property manager, and that we would try to sort things out. She checked on you the next morning. You demanded services that we don't offer. Though outside of her assigned duties, she drove you to a local attraction, offered to take you grocery shopping, and arranged a discounted excursion. You hounded her at work and harassed her co-workers. Before your departure, you demanded that I 'order' her to drive you to the airport. I refused this request. Upon your departure, a property inspection was done. You left it in an unkempt state. This required two days of cleaning. -Ruth-

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.
