Vacation Rentals Turk and Caicos

A vacation that we will always remember as an adventure

My Wife and two college-age daughters stayed in the large side of the Bungalow in June of 2015. We researched VRBO for a family beach getaway off the beaten path. This certainly filled the bill. The Bungalow, as it is known by the locals, is very nice and comfortable, not a resort, but certainly well equipped. The AC in the bedrooms was nice for sleeping, however, the breezes on the beach, the Tee Key huts, the front porch and the back porch were medicinal. The beach is white powder sand and the beach combing was incomparable to anything we have experienced anywhere in the US. We found 5 or more conch shells every morning along with hundreds of other shells! The water is gin clear. Water shoes are a must as the coral will cut your feet and there are a lot of sea urchins. The ride to the bungalow reveals a quiet little island that is laid back and slow paced. The ride takes you through the poorer part of the island that is somewhat alarming, but every capitalist society will have this and it helps you to put life in perspective. We rented a golf cart from Nathan – You must negotiate with him to get a good price. We explored the island thoroughly. Everyone waves and says Hello. The people of GT are so kind and friendly and love to talk to visitors. On “Ship days”, there were some people on the beach and roads and some Caribbean music in the air. A few tourist would walk the beach and the boats were steady taking snorkelers to the wall. On “no ship” days, we had one of the best beaches in the world completely to ourselves. The house faces west, so the sunset’s were awe inspiring. We chartered a fishing trip with Screaming Reels charter for a morning an caught a 45 lb yellowfin that we ate on for three days cooked on Drew’s new grill. We visited the island monuments and ate out at the sandbar, Irv’s and Bohio’s – all were fantastic. This is a special place that will most likely develop some over the next few years. We will never forget it.
