“Wonderful place to stay”
We loved our trip to grand turks. The house was amazing and the decorating was very well done. Amazing view from patio and back yard and everything you need to be comfortable was supplied. I would rent golf carts. It added another level of fun to our exploring. We will. Be coming back to this beautiful home.
This house is exactly as advertised; a haven from whatever's going on in your life. If you want to enjoy the luxury of a well-appointed, well-stocked beach house, with a spectacular view to greet you every morning and a perch to look for the green flash every night as the big ball of golden sun dips into the ocean, this is it. I stayed in this house for a month; a month of much needed healing and rest after a long, stressful career, and I can say it did the trick. Biking into town and all over the island, walking a couple blocks down the road to see what the fishermen brought in that night that I could cook up for supper, walking up the beach in the other direction to a lovely resort with a beachside bar and live music on the weekends, and just the sound of the surf right outside, what more could I have asked for? When I needed a teakettle, I made one phone call and it was delivered that afternoon. Drew and his caretaker were enthusiastic about making sure I had everything I needed and all the information I could use to make my trip everything I wanted. The location was perfect for peace and quiet, yet a 10 minute bike ride or 20 minute walk took me to all of the shops, restaurants and dive shops on the island. If this sounds like what you're looking for, look no further!
“Best beach rental we have ever stayed in!”
The prefect house on a perfect island!! The house is right on the most beautiful, quiet, private beach on the west side of the island. Every morning we would wake up and walk along the deserted beach and have first pick at the amazing shells, corals and sand dollars. At night we would relax and play cards on the back porch surrounded by twinkle lights or cozy up by the fire pit we built out of coral on the beach. The house is decorated so well and has all the necessities you need to cook at home or you can bike down to one of the restaurants and mingle. If you walk down the beach a 1/4 mile, you'll find the fishermen coming in in the afternoon. We bought fresh grouper, lobster and conch throughout the week that were delicious! I can confidently say we stayed at the best place on the island!!! All of the locals would swoon when we told them what house we were staying in. All in all, an amazing trip and amazing accommodations! We also rented a golf cart to get around further parts of the island (the lighthouse, the east side and into town). We even got to see three humpback whales from the lighthouse!! The scuba diving and snorkeling were amazing (lots of sea turtles)! Grand Turk Diving, a trip to Gibbs Cay to swim with stingrays and the Sandbar Restaurant are a must as well!!
“Perfect island, perfect place, perfect vacay!!”
Beachside Bungalow was the perfect choice for my much needed vacation! The water was crystal clear and the home is absolutely beautiful! It is decorated in a welcoming, beach home-away-from-home style. I loved all the personal touches and the coastal colors that are throughout. The kitchen is furnished with everything you need and has so much space! The furniture and luxurious bedding made it easy to sit back and relax. Whether you want to sit on the beach and read or participate in water sports, you have great options. The most amazing thing is that both of those activities are literally steps out the back door. Put on your snorkeling gear and simply start swimming! There is sea life and beauty to be found right on your beach. Because Grand Turk is less known than other Caribbean islands there is so much local culture to explore. Great shops and local art, original restaurants with great Caribbean flair, and a beautiful landscape make it an ideal escape. Don't miss the short trip to the lighthouse. The views are spectacular! I would chose Beachside Bungalow every time!!
“I experienced a little piece of paradise!”
Beachside Bungalow is a comfortable, lovely home that just happens to sit on one of the most beautiful beaches with clear blue water that I have ever seen. There is plenty to do on this somewhat private island. Snorkel, paddle board, walk the beaches, shop, eat, and just relax. What makes this particular location unique to most beach destinations is that the island is not touristy. It is primarily made up of natives. Donkeys roam the streets. It is a small island 1x6 miles. So you truly feel like you can escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and recharge your batteries. Take my advice, book your week in paradise and change your perspective on life!
“When can we go back?”
My husband and I had such a fabulous time in Grand Turk! The house was beautiful, the beach was wide open, and the turquoise ocean provided the perfect backdrop for long days of doing nothing! When we weren't just sitting, we rode bikes all over the island. We frequented the Sandbar on our bike rides for a quick snack and/or rum punch. Yum! We also rode bikes all the way down to the cruise center for "entertainment" one day. Although much of the island is in need of repair from hurricane damage, there are some beautiful landscapes and beautiful ocean views. The people are super nice and don't hassle you to buy things or give money like on other islands we've visited. The weather was hot, but the water was cool, and we're from Memphis, so we know how to handle hot! No central air in the house was an initial concern, but fans and trade breezes through the double wide front and rear doors (both covered with screen doors) made it quite pleasant inside. Ac in the bedroom was a huge plus! Homeowner had a cab at the airport to pick us up and tour a little bit, and there was a prepaid cell phone in the house to make local calls. The grocery store was within walking distance, but be prepared to pay island prices for your goods. They did, however, have a pretty decent selection of name brand products, so you don't really have to go without anything. If cooking in is not your thing, there is a fabulous resort/restaraunt right up the beach calle Bohio. It's a little pricey, but worth it! The Secret Garden was also good and not as high. Take cash, but some places even take plastic-just be sure to alert your credit card company you're traveling! Although we didn't really do much (that was our whole point in the first place), there were things we planned to do that we didn't get to like paddleboarding, snorkeling out at the ocean drop, or riding up to the lighthouse. I guess we'll have to go back to make the experience complete! Thanks, Drew for sharing your piece of paradise!
“A grand time on Grand Turk!”
My wife and I found paradise a few weeks ago on Grand Turk at the Beachside Bungalow. Amazing island, amazing house, and an amazing beach right outside your backdoor. The owner describes Grand Turk as the Caribbean of 40 years ago, and that description is spot on. There's TV, A/C, and cell phones, but everything else about this place feels like a step back in time. Just a laid back, quiet little island with no hustle and bustle. At times, I felt like I could be in a Hemingway novel. The beach felt like it belonged only to us. We barely saw anyone the entire week. The house is fantastic. Every modern amenity you need, but it still feels like a beach house. In fact, it felt like our beach house. The beds were comfortable and the towels were nice and thick. Coffee maker, blender and full-size oven work great. We went for the larger side and got the washer and dryer which afforded us the luxury of packing light. The back porch was our favorite place about the house. A big, spacious area to sit back and relax with a good book in the evening, or to take a break from the sun during the day, yet still enjoy the view. And the view is outstanding! Being on the west side of the island, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better sunset anywhere. Just as stunning as the sunset, is the sea. You get lost in the different shades of blue. It's so clear, which makes for great snorkeling. When we wanted a change of scenery, we explored the island on bikes. There's a great beach bar/grill down the road called Sandbar. We ended up there several times on our rides, either for lunch, dinner or just a rum punch to relax and take a break from riding. There are several other good places to eat, as well. Bohio (right up the beach from the house) was the nicest meal we had. The Secret Garden was also good. And we walked to the grocery store down the road from the house for the rest of our meals. All in all, a great way to celebrate a 40th birthday (not naming any names of course honey)!
“The Perfect Vacation accommodation”
Accurately describes location, accommodation, local attractions. We booked the large bungalow, stayed 3 weeks. A home away from home. Everything we needed was available for use in the unit. We just needed to provide the food and the fun. Snorkeling off the beach, swimming in 84 degree water, walking snowy white beaches for miles, strolling along the Main Street (5 minutes away) touring market vendors and the Grand Turk Museum. The Belongers of Grand Turk embrace tourists. As a Mother/Daughter team traveling alone, safety was never an issue. Waking to fresh brewed coffee on the back porch, over looking the ocean, easterly trade wind gently blowing, wild horses walking up the beach, a perfect start to everyday. The dramatic sunsets every night, over a glass of wine provided the perfect ending to the day. We were hard pressed to see anyone else on 'our beach'! Located at the north end of Grand Turk, on west side made this location secluded, quiet and private. Within a 5 minutes walk to grocery store and the boat launch. Fishermen brought the catch of the day in at 3 pm most days, ready for your picking and purchasing. They'll even clean it for you. We snorkelled with Papa J Tours twice! We toured Gibbs Cay (30 minute boat ride away) to play with the Sting Rays, Snorkelled off the third largest Barrier Reef in the world, and dove off 'The Wall' (a quarter mile off shore the reef ends and you're on top of a 7000 ft drop! Totally amazing to see and experience. The Beachside Bungalow is a perfect setting for a single or a multi family vacation. I was promised thick towels and the most comfortable bed I'd ever sleep in. The owner delivered on both promises. I have never slept so well. The great sleep alone was well worth the rental. Book your date and get ready for a vacation that will revive your soul, bring you back in touch with loved ones and definitely put a heart warming smile on your face! Much blessings for the perfect vacation at the Beachside Bungalow!
Response from the owner We are so thrilled that our very first client had such a wonderful time. Come back anytime that bad old Canadian winter strikes!
