Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday bungalow in Grand Turk - The Beachside Bungalow
Home right on the beach, completely remodeled with all new furnishings
No high rises or big developments, just you and your loved one on the beach.
Our home is right on the prettiest beach on the whole island (Pillory Beach). The beaches of the Turks & Caicos Islands are consistently ranked best in the WORLD year after year.
In addition to that, Grand Turk is also ranked in the top 10 SCUBA dive sites in the world year after year.
The house was extensively remodeled and a huge rear porch and built-in barbeque grill was added in April of 2013. All new bathrooms, kitchens, appliances, furniture, beds, curtains, sheets, towels - everything is brand new and wonderful.
Our house also has the good fortune of being located less than 100 yards from the grocery store with the largest selection on the island and 300 yards in the opposite direction, the nicest restaurant on the whole island at Bohio resort. Bohio is also where you can rent a Hobie Cat, paddleboards, kayaks, and extra bicycles. They also have snorkel trips, scuba trips, and whale watching excursions. All of it just a short walk down the beach just north of our bungalow. At night we will get dressed, walk down the beach to Bohio, take sunset pictures, have a fantastic chef prepared meal, and then walk back to our quiet little bungalow under the stars.
Two bikes per Bungalow side are now available for free to cruise the island.
Grand Turk is a special quiet little island which has yet to be discovered by the developers and tourists. We can sit on the beach for hours and sometimes days (non cruise ship days) without seeing a single person. Very Special!
However, on cruise ship days there will be a tiny bit more activity on the island and near our beach. The cruisers are usually on the island for about 4 to 5 hours during the day, so their impact is pretty limited. A late boat will pack up before 5, so our sunsets are always secluded and private!
Year round temperatures of 75 to 85 make for an Ideal winter or summer getaway. We snorkel in December!
Getting here is fairly easy, but does require an extra flight to get over to Grand Turk. We usually fly US Air to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, (airport code PLS) and then either Air Turks & Caicos or Turks & Caicos Express Airlines to Grand Turk. (about $80 round trip for the puddle jumper). Look these up online to purchase separately from your main flight from the US.

About Drew Renshaw
My wife and I fell in love with quiet Grand Turk 5 years ago and just had to find a way to have a place here.
Drew Renshaw purchased this bungalow in 2013
Why Drew Renshaw chose Grand Turk
Our duplex house is situated on the west side of the island right on the beach for beautiful sunsets each night.
Rates listed are for the smaller unit, If your party is larger and needs more space you can add my larger unit for $260 to $300 per night depending on season. ($20 more per night than my smaller unit) Both units have 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, den, and kitchen. Both units have a large back porch on the rear facing the beach, a perfect spot to watch the sunset each night.
What makes this bungalow unique
Grand Turk is the most wonderful quiet little island. It's the Caribbean of 40 years ago; authentic, unspoiled, naturally beautiful with no high rises or throngs of tourists everywhere. We literally can sit on the beach all week sometimes and only see 10 or 12 people.
Our Seaside house is the perfect place to get away from it all and reconnect with your spouse. Our days are usually spent waking up late, strolling the beach hand in hand, laying out soaking up the sun, cooking a dinner on the grille, and lots of conversation which gets lost in the bustle of life.
After spending a few days alone together we may be ready for a little action, which is when we may go down to the Cruise Center and people watch. The cruise ship center is a self contained tourist mecca where cruise ships check in for the day and their guests have a big time in the huge pool with swim-up bar, a Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, a surfing machine for learning to surf, and tons of shopping.There is a DJ every day having games and contests with the pool crowd - always a fun time is had here. We can go right in and join the fun free of charge and then when we tire of it, come back home to our quiet little house.
