3 Bedroom, 2 Full Bathroom Cottage On The Beach. New Tastefully Decorated Home.
About George Spanos
My wife and I, currently reside in New Hampshire. We have two boys and love escaping the cold New England winters for the beautiful turquoise ocean and laid back pace of Grand Turk. Not to mention some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the world.
George Spanos purchased this Villa in 2017
Why George Spanos chose Cockburn Town
After vacationing in Providenciales for three years straight, we decided to take a plane ride and explore Grand Turk. Shortly after landing we were shown Lemon Meringue - and fell in love with both the Island and the Cottage. The rest as they say... is history.
What makes this Villa unique
The home was built in the style of an old Bermudian cottage on the outside and is full of modern comforts on the inside! The beach is a lovely walking beach, encouraging beach combing and bird watching. The sunsets are spectacular!

Sweeter than Pie
Lemon Meringue cottage was everything in the advertisement and more. I would recommend the cottage to anyone visiting Grand Turk.
This is a wonderful property. Right on the beach, very private and safe (as all of Grand Turk seems to be). Most days we felt like we were on our own private beach, rarely seeing other sun-seekers on the beach. The home is well furnished, with a super nice layout so family can be together inside and out. Air conditioning in every room, but the fans in every room were all we needed in December/January. Super clean and new. Jayne is a wonderful host who responded quickly, was super nice and helped with anything we needed before and during our stay. We were comfortable with 6 adults. The sunsets are unreal!
Prospective renters may want to know that there was some sargassum (seaweed) on the beach (it seems to change every day though). This species was not unpleasant though. The water is very shallow at that part of Pillory Beach, a mix of sand, grass and rocky. I needed water shoes to walk out into the ocean. We did some snorkeling, floated, and paddle boarded (our own equipment), but you need to get beyond the shallow part. During our stay there was always a pleasant breeze and we did not notice any biting bugs. Jayne provides chairs with leg rests, beach chairs and a sun umbrella for comfortable seating on the porch, the lawn, and the beach.
We loved this place. And we loved Grand Turk. It's secluded alright, so be sure this is for you.
Allyson, Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you all back to Lemon Meringue someday.
Charming cottage on Pillory Beach
Beautiful cottage on Pillory Beach. Well appointed and private location made it an ideal get away.
Perfect for young children who are not quite proficient swimmers. Lots of wading and shell collecting.
