About Martin and Donna Seim

Martin and I have been long time friends with Grand Turk! Martin started coming to Grand Turk with his folks in 1964. They fell in love with the island and made a home there. It had just been electrified! Martin brought me once we were engaged in 1974 and we have been coming ever since. When we arrive each time our friends say, "Welcome home!"

Martin and Donna Seim purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Martin and Donna Seim chose Turks & Caicos

Lucayan Shores is a very special property, once belonging to the Lucayan Indians, the original settlers on the island. Archaeological finds have confirmed that Lucayan Indians returned seasonally to this exact shore, 600 to 800 years ago, which we have

lovingly named after them.

What makes this cottage unique

We built these four cottages in the style of an old Bermudian cottage on the outside and full of modern comforts on the inside! The beach is a lovely walking beach, encouraging beach combing and bird watching. The sunsets are spectacular! We do love these Lucayan Shores!

The Lemon villa is a beautiful ocean front property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled to Grand Turk and stayed in Donna & Martin's ocean side villa from February 3rd to 10th 2017. This was our first vacation to Turks & Caicos. Everything about the villa was fantastic, from initial booking and communication with Donna & Martin to our arrival and meeting with Deborah the property manager to the fantastic week we enjoyed!

The villa itself is beautifully laid out with all the necessities you need. The ocean side location was great. We enjoyed the beach right outside the door and in particular the sunsets every night. Our entire experience on the island was relaxing and enjoyable. We hope to return to this island paradise sooner rather than later and would highly recommend this property to anyone!

We enjoyed both cooking our own meals at the villa and visiting some of the local restaurants. Our favourite afternoon stop was at the Sandbar, a small restaurant / bar right on the beach on Duke Street. Great food and drinks. For dinner, although we visited a few very good restaurants, we by far enjoyed the Grand Turk Inn. The food was 5 star. Our only regret is we didn't visit more often!

Excellent all around. Strong recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 7 night stay at this wonderful property. The location is very private. Excellent sunsets and beach to walk. Not very good for swimming. A short drive to Governors beach is great for swimming. The public pool at the cruise dock is a great way to spend a day. The home is spotless, very new, accommodations were perfect. Great customer care, several follow up calls to see if everything was OK. Excellent all around. Strong recommend.

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property that is exactly as described, comfy beds too. The beach is very private and offers a nice calm place to swim. The Bohio dive resort is an easy walk up the beach where you can get food or a drink and to meet other visitors to the island. Grand Turk is a welcoming safe island that we would like to visit again.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lemon Meringue. We felt welcome and well taken care of in every detail. The quiet island pace was a perfect escape for the holidays. Great restaurants, diving, and snorkelling. We experienced a sting ray breaching the water right in front of the beach. We rented a golf cart and made the most of this mode of transportation around the island.

Thanks very much we really enjoyed your property and beautiful island.

Sweet as pie!

  • 5 of 5

I would order another slice of the Lemon Meringue any day. The house had a great layout. From making dinners in the kitchen to eating and playing games in the open dining room this house was made to enjoy the company of those whom you're with.

We found the end of the road privacy a special treat as well. Hours of beach time heading North, offered quiet white sand loaded with treasures to examine and appreciate.

Deb was splendid as well. The minute we landed our collective stress levels dissolved. Deb's easy manner and helpful tips ensured a great stay at a great house.

I highly recommend this house to any group or family that wants to get away and get back to the simple joys of life.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your delightful appreciation of what we are trying to accomplish with our Lemon Meringue home! Also, thanks for the kind word about Deb who works with us and tries to make every guest comfortable, from airport greeting to orientation and local tips. Interesting that you noted our end of the road privacy. Some prefer to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle (such as it is on Grand Turk!), but we feel that our quiet corner of the island is the way to go and are glad that you valued that. Thank you again and do come back! Martin

Our time at Lemon Meringue was so relaxing and so comfortable both inside and outside. This house has the best material used in kitchen and bathrooms, with clean beautiful furnishings, and top-notch appliances. The lemon-colored Bermudian style home with its matching colored gate and white fencing and veranda were so cheerful and pleasing to see and enjoy every day. The landscaping with its tropical plants and palms were neatly manicured and further added to the beauty of this property.

As a bonus, this property was located directly on the beach of the west side of Grand Turk. We were blessed with blue skies and colorful sunsets. The beach area had soft sand and was great for exploring for shells washed up, and for lounging on the raised platform to read a book with or without an umbrella.

We had the pleasure of seeing white egrets and herons fly in and land on the lawn, usually in the morning hours. Wild donkeys and horses on the road into Cockburn Town made for a very natural, countrylike ambience for suburban dwellers like us. We had four wonderful days diving with Grand Turk Diving, seeing the Lighthouse and the Cruise Port, and eating wonderful meals at the local restaurants. A must-see was the Turks and Caicos Museum.

The owners, Martin and Donna Seim, were very gracious and welcoming and did everything to make our stay memorable. We thoroughly enjoyed Lemon Meringue and the friendly people of Grand Turk! We thank them for sharing their home with us.

Lucayan Shores is located on the north west beach just minutes from the Bohio Dive Resort (Bar, Restaurant, snorkeling, diving trips, Etc.). Historic Cockburn Town and the Grand Turk National Museum are a few short minutes away by car, bike or golf cart.This is a brand new home on a very private stretch of beach.

Grand Turk is only @ 7 miles long so everything is really close. If you are looking for "action", at the southern tip of the island you will find the Cruise terminal for bars, music, shopping and one of the largest fresh water pools in the Caribbean. (When the ships are in!) The northern tip features one of the oldest lighthouses in the Caribbean as well as cliffs for seabirds and dramatic views of the 2 1/2 mile North Reef, site of shipwrecks, rescues and drama.

In between you may explore superb birding sites, wild donkeys and horses grazing along the road, beaches such as Governors Beach and Pillory Beach, as well as the unique architecture and history of Grand Turk and Cockburn Town.

Stroll down the unique and beautiful Duke Street continuing on to Front Street and a visit to the National Museum. You won't be disappointed! Pull up a chair and have a break at Barbie's or the Sandbar. Peek in to the Anglican Church or the library. This is an area that rewards strolling around and exploring.

Most of the visitors who stay on Grand Turk are well aware of the world famous waters surrounding the island and the fantastic diving and snorkeling adventures awaiting just offshore. You do not need to take long boat trips to arrive at dive sites, they are right offshore. All of the dive shops on the island will be happy to guide your water adventures, including trips to Salt Cay, Gibb Cay, whale watch trips and more.
