Description from owner


Please don't book it here on Tripadvisor, they charge you ridiculous extra fees.

Welcome to "BeachsideBungalow", a beachfront duplex home on a semi-private stretch of powdery white sand fronting the expansive Caribbean Sea. Choose between Sea Gull (the duplex's larger home) and Sandpiper (the duplex's smaller home), both two-bedrooms, two bath and quaintly furnished with casual beach décor: think whitewashed clapboard, breezy porches and sun-drenched rooms. We're just steps from the Caribbean – have you ever sipped morning coffee with your toes covered in sea foam? – and all the incredible offerings of Grand Turk. Tripadvisor has been keeping my inquiries from getting to me and also has not allowed my responses to come through back to you my guest on occasion. They won't allow us to talk on the phone either! I always respond within 30 minutes, so if you don't hear from me quickly, find me elsewhere on the web.

We are also on Goog maps if you zoom in on Grand Turk if you want to see exactly where our house is located directly on the the beach.

Grand Turk and the "BeachsideBungalow" is special not only for what we have, but for what we don't: crowds. Unlike the mega-touristed Providenciales (Provo), there are no high-rises or tourist crowds on our sleepy, peaceful island. Here, there are few visitors and no developments – just you and your loved one, alone with the sun, the sand and the sparkling Caribbean.

Honeymoons & Anniversaries: Your celebration deserves an escape where you don't have to sidestep throngs of tourists or share the beach with hundreds of other couples.

Romantic Getaways: Romance doesn't have to be a special occasion. BeachsideBungalow is the perfect choice for couples in search of a picture-perfect destination with plenty of alone time.

Retirees: Peace and quiet reign supreme on Grand Turk. The island's pace is slow and steady – the ideal choice for vacationers who value both the journey and the destination.

Privacy-seekers: If you value privacy and seclusion, there's no better place than BeachsideBungalow. Most of the time, you'll have the beach and Caribbean all to yourself.

Families: Families that embrace independent travel will love our home and Grand Turk, where every day dawns with the opportunity to explore new beaches, sample island cuisine, and tackle a new adventure.

What You'll Love about the "BeachsideBungalow":

Ocean Views: We're just steps from the Caribbean, and your master bedroom and den have beautiful views to the sea.

Semi-Private Beach: Our beach is so secluded, there's rarely another soul in sight. Don your skimpiest beachwear, cozy up to your honey, and don't worry about showing a little PDA; it's hardly even P (public) on our beach!

World-class SCUBA Diving: Grand Turk is consistently rated as one of the top 10 diving destinations.

Beachfront Fish Market: Grand Turk's incredible beachfront fish market – a casual affair where local fishermen pull their dinghies up onto the sand – is just 100 yards from our bungalow. Stop by to stock up on fresh lobster, conch, grouper, and other ocean delicacies - all that were swimming just an hour before.

Local Shopping: Our BeachsideBungalow is just steps from the island's best restaurant and best grocery store.

Year-round Summer: Our average temperatures are 75º to 85º F – even during your hometown winter!

Response from the owner I'll have to say, we are so disappointed in this review after all of the things we did to try and make you happy, funny too how your list has grown since we talked and texted multiple times while you were there. If the floors had a spot of sand near the trash can we are truly sorry, same with the nonstick pans which were fine when we were there 1 month ago. We told our manager to pull out the brand new set sometime this spring whenever she felt it they were looking tired. You CAN open our windows and enjoy the sounds of the surf, but then the room gets hot since the air conditioning can't keep up with open windows, We suggest keeping them closed for your comfort, we don't require it though. We are on a tiny island and the sea air will rust everything outside within weeks. Yes the bikes chains were rusted, the rest of the bike is painted and looks new. When you called about the bikes being unsatisfactory, you stated 2 flats out of the 8 bikes to choose from. The caretakers came that day and fixed 2 flats, (and used the air chuck to inflate them) you certainly could have used any of the 6 other bikes instead. We have had a wonderfully rainy fall and all of the landscaping has grown in finally, I'll need to take some fresh pictures to show just how lovely it has become. Conch shells on the porch walls and grill are cute decor and usually placed lovingly by guests as they find them, we even suggest you take one as a souvenir. Finally, the 3 story condo unit you describe has had to add a free golf cart to sweeten the deal since the property is so tiny with 3 units and virtually no beach, it really just doesn't compare to what we offer. In the end, we were baffled initially at the flurry of calls and texts within minutes of your arrival and these complaints seemed odd until you hinted at a refund of some sort, then it all became clear. If our house was truly as "off" as you imply, we certainly wouldn't have all of these other glowing reviews or happy customers who return year after year. Sorry you were disappointed in paradise and also sorry for you that you paid $427 extra by renting it on a platform and not going direct with the owner.

Response from the owner Hey Stan, so glad you had a great time and enjoyed our secret slice of heaven. Since you came, they have been running fiber optic cable all over the island for super-fast internet!!! We are supposed to get it installed next week Sept 15, 2018. We'll be able to watch Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc and we are so stoked- cable TV used to really stink on our little island anyway, so you didn't miss much! So glad you were able to search and find the BeachsideBungalow!
