Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been a professional travel writer for the last twenty years. I have stayed at the finest five star hotels all over the world. A few weeks ago I stayed at Bunny and Jim’s condo and it was simply perfect. I loved it because the price was reasonable, it was clean and quiet, and footsteps away from the most beautiful beach in the world as well as a fun casual place to eat and drink. Unlike at a traditional hotel I had a well-stocked kitchen, which gave me the option of “eating in”, a washer and dryer, and the layout was so spacious it felt like one's ’own home not a tiny hotel room. I highly recommend it, give it five stars and plan to return as often as possible.

Location offers so much

  • 5 of 5

Great time, your condo is very comfortable and the location close to shops, IGA etc., is perfect! Thashena checked in with us, and made us feel welcome. Da Conch Shack, Caicos Café and Mr. Grouper are all worth a second visit. Totally enjoyed our visit, thanks for asking.

Home away from home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Jim and Bunny’s fantastic condo. The location is ideal, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. It was a 3 minute walk to the beach where there were always chairs and umbrellas available. I walked the length of the beach several times and I really liked the stretch of beach in front of Ocean Club West. Water was cooler than our trip at the same time a couple of years ago - nice to cool off but too cool to stay in for long. Pool was lovely but nothing can beat the view of the water and the sounds of the waves. One day Jojo the dolphin visited right in front of the resort about 4 feet from shore - it approached swimmers in the water and slowly swam the length of the bay as people walked along side at the shore.

We called the property manager a couple of times for minor issues and she was immediately responsive and very friendly. The kitchen is well equipped; we used it for breakfast and lunch most days. The condo was clean and well kept. Plenty of towels for beach and bathrooms. On-site laundry was convenient.

We ate on-site at the OCW restaurant the first night. While the atmosphere was lovely, the food was way too salty. Wish we had made a different choice. We fell in love with Cocovan and went three times for drinks and/ or dinner. Much better value! It is just down the road toward Leeward; a leisurely 5-7 minute walk. Having a car was helpful but not required in this central location. We used it for groceries, exploring, and visiting a couple of restaurants on different parts of the island. Rented a bike from Caicos Wheels just down the street and stored it overnight in the condo. It was great for exploring the area. The on-site gym was greatly improved - double the size and more up-to-date equipment. I went around 8 am most days for about 90 minutes and there were a few people but no waits for equipment.

Overall a fantastic rental, can’t wait for our next visit!

Amazing Spot!! We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

WE ARE COMING BACK!

My husband and I stayed at an expensive resort in Provo, but, they couldn’t accommodate us for one more day here in paradise. We contacted Bunny and Jim and they arranged a stay for us at their suite.

WISH that we had stayed in their suite for the whole time! It was fully equipped and comfortable, we could walk to town and we were steps from the ocean. We are coming back and staying here!

Really enjoyed my stay at the plaza of ocean club west! Jim and Bunny are excellent hosts and easy to get in touch with. The room is very spaciacous and easily fit all my friends and family. It’s on such a beautiful spot on grace bay and ocean club is one of my favorite spots on the island.

Finding balance in paradise

  • 3 of 5

The positives: Grace Bay Beach is gorgeous. The central location of the apartment is ideal for easy access to groceries, restaurants, shopping etc. One does not need a car. The apartment has spacious rooms. Everything was extremely clean. Thashena was timely in responding to a few matters that came up. Bunny was also attentive and even sent a follow up to ask about a member of our family who took ill on the trip.

While the apartment is exactly as described, some reading between the lines is in order. The Plaza is a 3 story building behind OCWest, on the main road and has businesses on the street level. There is absolutely no view from the main living area unless you stand in the windows looking out sideways between the large, permanent shutters, which keep out the direct sunlight. While one does not spend much time in the apartment during the day, there is either a view of the shutters, or the parking lot (if one chooses to sit on the entry area to the apartment) upon return from a day at the beach. For some this may not be of concern, but as I would not have chosen this set up had it been clearer, I think it worth mentioning.

Another small item worth mentioning is the ridiculous beach towel "matter". Apparently the managers of OCW and the owners of the Plaza are at a stalemate over Plaza guests using OCW beach towels. As such, we were not permitted to use hotel towels. On the down side from the apartment, this means bringing sandy, wet towels back every day. There is no outside space to hang the towels to dry. And, depending on how many times you wish to use the same towels, it means doing laundry on vacation. What's more, since the towels provided don't match the OCW towels, we seriously had the security guard tell us we should not be using the ones we had. This is not the fault of Bunny and Jim, but perhaps by bringing it up here, management will figure it out so as not to inconvenience guests spending money in their bars and restaurants over towels.

One very correctable matter is the mattress in the master bedroom. It needs to be replaced. My husband and I both tossed and turned. And, I would suggest adding a drying rack for damp suits and towels to the closet. One does not have much room to air dry wet things.

Perhaps my concerns are of no matter to other guests, and if not, the apartment will be perfect for you. Very nice owners and property manager.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our location, as you mentioned, is in the best part of Provo and in the heart of the World Number One Grace Bay Beach resort area. Our guest rates are just a fraction of the neighboring properties. A car is not needed and our central location, as you say, “is ideal”. Thank you also for your comments. Our guests’ experience is important to us and we strive to make it the best possible. We are fortunate to have Thashena, as our on-island property manager. We were pleased to hear that she was able to quickly assist you with the issue that came up on Christmas eve. Thashena has already replaced the mattress in the master bedroom with a new “pillow top mattress” and we thank you for the suggestion to purchase drying racks for the bathrooms. We were sorry to hear about the misunderstanding about the towels at Ocean Club West. We do supply linens (including towels) and have a full laundry facility in the suite. The pool and beach attendants and our security personnel are alert to ensure that resort facilities are used only by guests registered at OCW and the OCW Plaza. We make sure that all of our guests are registered with the hotel and with their staff and hotel security. Security will routinely check to be sure that people using the resort are registered as guests. Thanks again for your comments and helpful suggestions. Bunny and Jim
