“Total comfort and very enjoyable, beach paradise.”
We had visited Turks several years ago for our 25th anniversary and found the island a beautiful beach lover's paradise. We returned for a week recently and chose The Old Beach House for our accommodations. We where not disappointed at all, in fact staying here was head over heels better than staying in a resort with the crowds. The residence shared by Emma and Roger was extremely comfortable, clean and spacious. Past experience had taught us that a car was definitely a luxury if you wanted to see other parts of the island and venture out for dinner or groceries. The home owners definitely made sure you where comfortable and provided guidance to some of the lesser seen adventures on the island. Although there was a beach within a couple minute walk from your door we also took full advantage of the plentiful and extremely beautiful public access spots all along Grace Bay. While having a place to prepare meals came in handy we also enjoyed some local fare on numerous occasions. One of our fondest memories and special treat where the fresh eggs supplied by Emma's chickens. We hope to be returning asap and this is going to be our first choice of accommodations.
Response from the owner Thank you so much Roberta and Paul for taking the time to write this fabulous review! We hope you will come back and see us again soon!
“Very quite and homey just like home.”
Enjoyed our stay. It was everything we needed, very quite and cozy. Our hosts Emma and Roger were very nice and helped with any of our questions and also booked excursions for us.The beach was a very short walk and we spent many of our days enjoying this secluded beach. You definitely need a car to see the island. Grace Bay area beach is one of the nicest beach we have ever been to. Things are very pricey on the island. We bought groceries at the local IGa and we ate most of our meals in our well equipped kitchen. We will definitely return to the island, every one was very nice and we enjoyed the quite lifestyle that this island has.
“A peaceful, restfull, geniune spot - with the beach less than a”
The olde beach house apartment was much more than we ever expected. This was our first trip to the TCI. We were looking for something affordable, safe, located close to the beach and most of all, private. We could not have asked for anything better. The one bedroom apartment is simply and tastefully furnished. It is not crowded, but open, and the modern amenities such as a wonderful bathroom and kitchen could not have been better. The barbecue in the garden and the shaded areas around the house made for great meals and dining. In fact we only ventured out to eat once our entire week and were happy to have all of our meals outdoors. We were even fortunate enough to picked papayas in the garden for our breakfast. The most crowded the nearby beach might get would be 4 or 5 others, and within 5 to 10minutes of beach walking you can visit some local beachfront restaurants, including the famous Conch Shack. A few minutes further along you visit the wonderful laid-back community of Blue Hills. Walking to the grocery store or liquor store is a bit of a hike, so a rent a car would be recommended at least for part of your stay. Emma and Roger were perfect hosts. Emma met us upon arrival at the house and was an excellent resource for all of our trip planning arrangements rental cars, a ferry crossing to North Caicos, and general directions and recommendations. When we first made our plans we only booked three nights at The Olde Beachhouse, but after the first night we immediately decided that this was the place for us and were fortunate enough to stay the week. We are already planning another visit and will definitely make this part of our next vacation in the TCI.
“off the beaten path”
My husband and I stayed at the beach house and enjoyed the time we spent on the island. If you are looking to stay away from the large hotels and cookie cutter experience stay here. The location is perfect quiet and minuites away from some great secluded beaches restaurants and the hustle and bustle of the strip with all the resorts. The apartment has everything you need and the owners are there if you need them . Emma was a wealth of information and she was like having a private consierge making reservations for us for meals and excursions.Its a good idea to rent a car but you would want one anyway to see the island.(emma can rent one for you) Driving is easy not much traffic at all. Supermarkets nearby to buy snacks and such and a beach 5 min walk if you choose.We came back relaxed and wanting to return.You cant beat the value if you are looking to get away and experience island living.
“Off the Beaten Path….”
If you enjoy blending in with the Locals...this apartment is for you! I was greeted by Emma Halliday who helped me in with my luggage and explained the rental in great detail...I love animals and she has 2 dogs who greeted me enthusiastically! I enjoyed the fact that she took her own time to bring me to the grocery store! I did discover little treats in the fridge to welcome me! The apartment was very spacious clean and beachy ...Very quiet and serene...I enjoyed meeting some of the neighbours! It is a gated community so I felt safe as I noticed security driving around daily! The beach is a five minute walk and it boast a couple of fun restaurants in walking distance! I loved that I could enjoy Grace Bay beach everyday if needed while coming "home" to the quiet little apartment...the gardens smell heavenly when a slight breeze is blowing!...It's off the beaten path so a rental car is needed to explore the beaches on the Island! I used Scooter Bob's since I was there for a month! Pure Heaven! Emma Halliday is an amazing fun woman and I miss her already! I would travel and rent again.
This beach house is just the perfect spot if you need to disconnect from the world. Me and my husband were very very pleased with the apartment Emma offered us on a very short notice,the place is clean spacious and litterrally 5 steps from the beautiful beach! Most of the time we had it for ourselves! Emma is lovely and available if you need anything! We will definitely go back ...
The one bedroom apartment is situated in the Turtle Cove area which is five to ten minutes from the airport, by car. You will absolutely need a car to get around. The location is a private, local and very quiet. The place itself is twenty yards away from the beach, walking distance, which is always empty but for the locals. There is a full kitchen which is supplied with pots, pans, spices, mugs, glasses, etc. Eating out is expensive on the island, so you will appreciate the kitchen a lot. There is air conditioning, thank god. The place also has a washer for your dirty clothes, and a dishwasher for your dirty clothes...aahhh...I mean dishes. Towels are provided, as well as sunscreen, which is very thoughtful when you forget your own. One quirk is that the refrigerator gets a bit loud at night, but by the time you get there, it will be fixed. Emma, your host, is the most charming host and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Bottom line is, for the price, you won't find a better place on the island.
Response from the owner Thank you Art for your lovely review and absolutley we will look at the Fridge Noise! And Thanks to you, we also figured out the cooker and all works perfectly now, thank you again for your input! We hope you make it back to The Turks and Caicos Islands Soon!
“Outstanding - The Secret Is Out”
On one hand I want to shout from the rooftops how great this place is, on the other hand I want to keep it as my own little secret. I guess the secret is out. My stay at the olde beach house was unforgettable; I could not have wished for a better place to stay. Clean, comfortable, and with everything I needed to make for a great vacation. It is one of those places at which you feel right at home, and you leave knowing that you will be back soon. I sure will. What a treasure!
Response from the owner Dear Neal, We are so happy you loved our place, and felt so at home! Thank you for writing this review, it means a lot to us to hear your feedback, as we want our guests to keep coming back! We hope to see you again in TCI, and of course at The Old Beach House! See you soon, Emma & Roger
