About Jessalyn Zaykoski
We are a family owned vacation rental. We have been renting here on Grand Turk for 11 years. Our family has been traveling to the Turks and Caicos since 1988 and love it for the friendly people and that is a wonderful place to relax
Jessalyn Zaykoski purchased this Apartment in 1988
Why Jessalyn Zaykoski chose Cockburn Town
Our guests love us, as you can see by our reviews. We have many repeat guests you can see their reviews on listing number 53010. Our apartments are very clean. Irsa, our maid, takes great pride in her work. We work hard at maintaining our units, so you can have faith that what you see in the pictures is what you get. We go above and beyond for our guests and even supply a few breakfast items so you don't have to rush right out the door after arrival to shop but can dine out that night, have breakfast in the AM and then venture out. We are located in a pleasant residential neighborhood, walking distance to town and restaurants. We are located directly on the beach with the beach literally outside your door. Our beach is one of the nicest beaches for swimming on the island with a firm sandy bottom but we also have coral areas for wonderful snorkeling too. Many of our guests have commented saying they think we have the best beach for swimming and snorkeling on the island. I'm not sure I would go that far, as Governors Beach, a public beach, is truly beautiful. l would say we have the best private beach on the island (but remember in the Turks and Caicos no beach is considered private). That said, the number of people that pass by Crabtree Apartments on the beach, you could probably count on one hand. If you are looking for privacy, a beautiful beach, clean, close to town and restaurants and with an excellent track record, we are it hands down!
What makes this Apartment unique
We fell in love with the island and the people. It's the kind of place where you feel like you fell off the side of the earth. Grand Turk has a nice easy pace of it's own which lets you unwind and really relax. We find it so easy to travel to the Turks and Caicos because the currency is the US Dollar and it is only a 1 1/2 hour flight from Florida, 3 1/2 hours from Boston or New York. The beaches are beautiful, the people are friendly and the scuba diving is superb.

Beautiful beach and lovely apartment!
This is a lovely 3 unit apartment building on a beautiful beach. The sand was a bit stirred up while we were there so we didn't get to snorkel much right out front. We went just down the road where conditions were better . The kitchen was well-equipped, soft sheets and plenty of extra towels and stuff. We had all we needed on our own for our 8 night stay. Thanks!!
We had a wonderful stay at Crabtree...the check in was flawless, the location was perfect and the beach was paradise!
Peaceful, Private and Perfect for us
We had an absolutely fabulous week at Crabtree. We rented all 3 apartments for a family of 12 on a trip to celebrate the grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. The apartments were perfect for us, giving some privacy to each family unit, but space to gather with the two adjoining apartments. The location was incredible, right on the beach, with a nice sandy area under trees to relax. I will never forget waking up and walking right out onto the sand in the morning. We essentially had a private beach to ourselves. Only a few people occasionally strolled by. The cruise ships never bothered us, most people stay down at the cruise port and it was fun to watch the ships come in and out each day. The island is very authentic and very different than Provo (we also stayed 5 days there). We loved the quietness and charm (do not expect a ton to do on the island). We love the Gibbs Cay excursion, one of the most unique experiences we've ever had (swimming with stingrays). The dogs were a huge hit with all of our kids (6 kids ages 8-20). They were sweet and followed us everywhere, even found us the one day we went to Margaritaville. Overall, one of the best vacations we've had and perfect for our family of 12. Jessalyn was wonderful with advice for excursions, catering for our anniversary party, and other advice. Thank you Jessalyn for a fabulous vacation we will remember for a lifetime!
This is my new favourite place to stay!
A lovely clean & comfortable apartment with nice design and everything you could need on a spectacular part of the beach. You couldn't ask for more! I would highly recommend this property.
Thank you! We work hard to keep everything in the best possible condition and you can’t beat the location! We would love to have you visit again!
One of the best ever!!!
It's no wonder Crabtree Apartments gets nothing but 5 star reviews - this place was amazing!!!! The apartment is equipped with everything you need, including some basic staples (orange juice, milk, eggs, butter and a loaf of bread) to get you started. The snorkeling is fantastic and if you like to collect sea glass there is plenty of it! The resident Potcakes (Paws and Chase) became members of our family during our stay and would follow the kids as they would walk the beach collecting shells and sea glass. Chase even followed us to the cruise center one day - he knew the way better than us. They are the sweetest dogs and so well behaved. So glad we brought dog treats with us :). Jessalyn was our point of contact and she was very timely as answered any and all questions we had prior to our stay. We did a deep sea fishing trip through Screaming Reels and a snorkeling trip with Humpback Dive Shack - I would highly recommend both. Another must is the Sandbar Restaurant and Jack's Shack. Hope to get back for another visit in the future and will definitely stay at the Crabtree Apartments!!
Crabtree was nothing short of amazing. My husband and I did a mid-July trip with our two children (age 2 and 14). My in-laws rented out the neighboring unit - a HUGE thanks to Jessalyn for realizing that we had not originally rented the connecting units and for helping us to rebook those. Units 2 and 3 were fantastic - we left the door between them open at all times. We rented unit 2 so this review will exclusively focus on that unit. When we arrived, the unit was immaculately clean. The heat was oppressive but as soon as we opened the doors and windows a wonderful cross-breeze cooled the unit to perfection. The groceries upon arrival were amazing - thank you for that! The beds were comfy and the bedroom AC was a nice treat at night! Can ANYTHING beat the beachfront back yard? We spent most of the mid-day hours under the cover of the porch as it was simply too hot and too intense to be in the sun. We did early morning beach walks nearly every day and swam every afternoon. The shell hunting and sea glass hunting was fantastic! The apartment is a close proximity to town - restaurants, dive companies, small shops, etc. The location is perfection - off a busy street on a secluded side road. Our beach was practically private with great snorkeling and swimming. We had one tiny issue (not worth mentioning the issue) - Jessalyn took care of it immediately. The house caretaker, Arelys is wonderful!
I would advise guests to do their research before renting on Grand Turk/Crabtree. Make sure you want the remote, rural Caribbean experience. Make sure you are okay with literally having nothing to do on the island but relax (there are NO attractions, resorts, amusement parks, etc). Make sure you are okay with not having a fully AC'ed unit (you won't need it!) and no "super luxury" accommodations (no dishwasher, garbage disposal, etc). Grocery stores are at the mercy of weekly Miami deliveries (so they run out of things quickly and often), restaurants run out of things, too and most menus are very limited. For us - it was perfection and it was EXACTLY what we were looking for. We haven't been home for 24 hours and already desperately miss Crabtree and Grand Turk. We are SO relaxed and refreshed. Undoubtedly, we will be back (likely a few years from now as I am pregnant and can't imaging doing this trip with an infant). This experience was wonderful and I highly recommend Crabtree!
Crabtree Apartments is located in a residential area on the west shore of Grand Turk, just south of Cockburn Town. There are wonderful sunset views and a constant tropical breeze that keeps the apartment comfortable. We are located walking distance to town and 7-8 restaurants.
