Overview

Overview

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.

Extreme Relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I spent a week here for our 10th wedding anniversary. We have 3 kids and busy lives and were looking for a place we could rest, relax, and enjoy quality time with each other. This was the PERFECT getaway for us.
We stayed in the smaller side (Sandpiper). The Bungalow is very clean and beautifully decorated. It has a Pottery Barn beach house feel to it. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We brought some food with us and ate breakfast and lunch most days at the bungalow and went out for dinner (though we did cook dinner one night). The kitchen has everything you need to make some meals for yourself. The views are simply breathtaking. I spent many hours reading in the hammock. We also could walk right out into the water in front of the house to snorkel and see all kinds of fish and coral. You can get almost anywhere on the island riding the bikes that come with the bungalow. We did rent a golf cart our last day there to explore the cruise center and the light house. We also drove ourselves to the airport in the golf cart on our way home!
The locals are super friendly and we felt very safe the entire time we were there. Some of our favorite things during the week were: ice cream from Irv's cafe, snorkeling the reefs and Gibs Cay with Captain Tim of Crystal Seas Adventures, fish and chips from the Sandbar restaurant, the unbelievable bright shades of blue of the water, and sitting in beach chairs watching the sunset each night.
In general, the island feels very slow and laid back. When the cruise ships are docked (4-5 days a week from roughly 8am - 3pm), there are definitely more people around exploring and enjoying the island. But even then it never feels crowded or rushed.
The owners are super friendly and the local property manager was always available to help with any questions we had.
If you are looking for a laid back, relaxing getaway on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, this is the place for you.

Beachside Bungalow is an AWESOME place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed one week at the Beachside Bungalow on Grand Turk. The place was perfect for my wife and I on our getaway. BB is located on the north end of town on a beautiful white sand beach with warm turquoise water. You can put your beach chairs next to the water enjoy reading a book, float on a raft or snorkel right in your backyard. If you want to relax in the shade there is a perfect hammock on the patio to enjoy a fresh pina colada from the blender. We stayed in the small side which has a full kitchen, WiFi, cable tv and AC in the bedrooms. The place comes with 2 nice bikes that we used to ride to both the far south end of the island to the cruise center and north to the lighthouse. We would ride bikes into town to get groceries, the local fish market to get fresh fish, conch and lobster, to at night to dinner using a headlamp. I loved Grand Turk because it is a very mellow island compared to Provo and it also has some of the best diving in the world. I did 5 dives with Blue Water during my stay and it was world class. I would also recommend to take the trip to Gibbs Cay. Drew has thought of everything when he remodeled this place and I guarantee that you will love it. Thanks Randy LaDue - San Diego Sports Magazine

Vacation for the ages!

  • 5 out of 5
This vacation is one for the ages. As mentioned on previous reviews, the pictures does not do justice to this beautiful place and they are absolutely right. The place is magical, the view, the beach, the water, everything is perfect. There are also several things that you can enjoy - snorkeling, biking, (lots of) eating, and of course relaxing. Truly a memorable vacation in a memorable place. Highly recommended!

Quiet and Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
The house was lovely and perfect for a relaxing week away where we could disconnect from everything. The island is very small and quiet when there were no cruise ships in. The beaches were beautiful and fun to explore, perfect for snorkeling and lounging in the sun.

A piece of heaven on earth!

  • 5 out of 5
Saying the Beachside Bunglow is a beautiful beach front property does not do it justce! The pictures allow you to see the beauty but do not capture the feeling you get when staying at this lovely well appointed home. We went as two families and rented both sides of the home. Each side was fully equped to accommodate a family of four. Everything from the pots & pans to the down pillows on the beds made this home not only functional but comfortable and pleasant. Everything we needed to enjoy the beach and the island were provided. There were plenty of beach chairs, snorkel gear, & bicycles. We had a problem with one of the bicycles & made a phone call & someone was ther the next day to fix it.

I highly recommend bringing water shoes to avoid a trip to the hospital (which we learned first hand was clean & and modern). If your traveling with teenagers, as we did, pack food! Food is very expensive & choices limited. We enjoyed dining out at Bohio's where the chef was first class and the owners most welcoming! We also had a fantastic BBQ at the Osprey. For a less expensive meal & a chance to get meet the locals I highly recommend Barbies & Doo Doo's.

The Beachside Bungalow is deffinately a place to relax and unwind and experience a true island getaway! Grand Turks offers breathtaking beaches & is an ocean paradise. It is not the place to go if your looking for nightlife or a "resort experience".

Owner's Response: Thank you Tracy for such a gracious review.
To answer the question everyone has - what did she step on?!?!
It was coral, so if you do intend on walking on the coral areas instead of the sandy areas, please bring some kind of foot protection. Also watch out for the Sea Urchins and their prickly spines near the coral.

Perfect Place in Grand Turk

  • 5 out of 5
Water, Sand, Sun & Island Breeze. Throw in the perfect beach house and a few donkeys and you have the best trip of your life. Our trip to Grand Turks was simply incredible. It is a wonderful place to go and unplug from the world. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and our goal was to get away from the hectic pace of life.
The beach house is exactly as described on the website. It is very private & romantic. It is beautifully decorated, fully furnished and very clean. All you need to do is show up. All of the furnishings were excellent – linens, towels, kitchen accessories, furniture, washer & dryer, bikes, snorkeling gear, beach chairs…. all perfect and well thought out by Drew & Joanie, the owners. Everything we needed was provided.
There is also a book in the house that provides all types of information about the island. Things to do, places to go, restaurants, shops and the business cards of the people on the island that offer different services – snorkeling, fishing, taxi… perfect to help you plan your time on the island. Again, it is well thought out by the owners so you can make the most of your time on the island.
We used the bikes and snorkeling gear every day. In the mornings we would bike to all of the local sites and just explore the island - cruise center, lighthouse, flamingos. The bikes were perfect and the snorkeling gear was even better than what was offered on one of our paid snorkeling excursions. We fished one day and cooked the yellow fin tuna at the house. The cruise ships were docked in the mornings and that created a little activity on the island. By afternoon, the ships would leave and the island felt like it was ours. The beaches seemed like they were private and we would snorkel and enjoy the water. Every afternoon was spent watching some of the most incredible sunsets we had ever seen. Every sunset was different but all were beautiful.
The island is very slow paced. They call it “island time.” The locals are friendly and the dogs, donkeys and horses that roam the island just add to the charm of the place.
I would recommend the house and the island to anyone who wants to get away from it all. It’s the perfect place to go and relax.
