Need info for first trip

Hello-we are looking to celebrate our 32 anniversary on Turks and Caicos. I am just starting my research of this island. We will have a limited budget and would like to visit in November of this year or April of next. Definitely looking for a villa right on the beach if possible or within walking distance. Want to spend time on Grace Bay but also looking at Taylor Bay. Calm beautiful water is a must. Are the beaches public or private? What is the distance between Grace Bay and Taylor Bay? Stone's Throw cottage on Taylor Bay is a possibility. Also, what is the average rental car price? We would like to keep our villa/car rental budget under 4,000.

Also check out www.southfleetwood.com this is on Grace bay beach and close to many shops and restaurants. The cottage looks very nice, and has a pool.

A rental car from Grace Bay Car rentals will run you about $39 per day, very reliable and accomodating.

To get to Taylor Bay would take you about 20 minutes, You can view a map on www.wherewhenhow.com click on maps at the top of the page and the third map down enlarges by clicking on it.

Have fun planning

We have stayed at Stone's Throw on Taylor Bay four times so far and love it there. You can walk into the water from the stairs on the dock, swim across a 20 foot boat channel, and walk in knee deep water to the beach. All beaches in TCI are public, but you will find very few or often no people on the beach at Taylor Bay.

Enjoy your research!
