“Island House is a very relaxing place to stay!”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

Been staying here for about 11 vacations. Donna does great, and the staff is very nice. The rooms are great, and it is outside the hustle and bustle of the main part of town. We enjoy the peace and quiet, and greatly appreciate the vehicle to visit all the areas of the island. Not many places here offer that. I would recommend Island house!

We came to Grand Turk to dive and explore really enjoyed ourselves at Island House. Donna was very knowledgable and helpful. As the property is outside the main town, we were glad to have the car provided as part of the rate. Island House overlooks the North Creek lagoon, has some lovely plants and trees complete with hummingbirds. We would have enjoyed the pool, had it been available, but we liked sitting outside anyway. The rooms were very nice and very clean; having a kitchen was great.

Room Tip: Try for the upstairs room overlooking the lagoon.

We stayed at Island House for 12 nights mid-January 2013 and were more than delighted with our choice. Situated a short distance away from the main town it’s slightly elevated location means there’s usually a cooling breeze, a welcome bonus. The views across the gardens and North Creek were stunning and the sun setting over the sea magical.

We were collected from the airport by Donna, the charming hostess who runs Island House. Even though we arrived several hours earlier than intended, within 15 minutes she was at the airport to collect us. On the short drive to Island House Donna was extremely helpful, giving us a guided tour of the bars, restaurants, dive shops, supermarkets and other local information.

Our first floor apartment had dual aspect patio doors, a feature we particularly loved, leading to balconies giving a choice of areas to relax, socialise or eat. It was air conditioned, spacious, clean, and well equipped. The kitchen has a large fridge freezer, 4 burner hob with oven and grill, and a microwave. The microwave went faulty during our stay but was immediately replaced with a brand new one. There’s plenty of clean fresh drinking water readily available meaning you don’t have to buy it from the supermarket, a real bonus. The bedroom has a ceiling fan as well as air conditioning for those warmer nights. We particularly appreciated the large comfortable bed. The apartment was cleaned daily by Millie and the beautiful gardens well tended by Arnold who is also the odd job man. The high speed WiFi worked well saving a fortune in calls to the UK as we were able to use Skype instead of mobile roaming.

A big bonus to vacations at Island House is the car included in the price. As other visitors have enthused, it gives freedom to travel around the island, not having to order taxis or be restricted to the main town.

If you fancy a change from the quiet, laid back atmosphere of the island then take a drive down to the Cruise Ship Centre on a day when there is a Cruise ship in. It’s a complete contrast to ‘sleepy’ Cockburn Town. There are lots of people and lots of retail therapy available to suit all tastes. My wife particularly liked the shop called “Dizzy Donkey”. There is a sign on the wall inside that says “Your husband called and said it’s OK to buy whatever you like”. Did he now!!

During our second week on Grand Turk we booked some scuba diving, the first time for 15 years. We chose Oasis Divers and were very pleased with their professional friendly service and the price we paid. Because it was so long since we’d last dived we needed to take a refresher lesson and John, our instructor, was patience personified. He just made it so easy for us and needless to say, under his watchful gaze, we did just fine. On subsequent dives our Dive Master “Pepper” was always determined to find the right dive site for the conditions or time of day. He was also excellent at pointing out a variety of sea life which we’d maybe have missed.

We loved Grand Turk and when we return will definitely choose to stay at Island House. We arrived there as strangers but left as friends. Thanks Donna.

Went to Grande Turk to scuba dive. Very nice clean property. Beds comfortable. Water hot. AC worked well. Kitchenette handy. Pool not in service but not important to us. Having a car was key to enjoying this property and island. Donna was a friendly, helpful manager.

First of all, Grand Turk is a magical place - with crystal clear, turquoise water and powder sand beaches and wild horses and donkeys strolling the streets. Island house, though not on the beach, was a wonderful, modern, spacious home away from home. The kitchen was large and modern, the living room was comfy with island art on the walls, the patio was breezy with wide open views, and the bed was huge and comfortable. The best thing was our warm and welcoming hostess, Donna, who owns the place - she took great care of us by picking us up, giving us a tour, providing tips on things to do, etc. Other perks include access to washing machine, bikes, and a car (which made the fact that we were away from the beach a non-issue). Also, there's a lovely pool and patio for morning swims.

We stayed at the Island House for 8 nights in September 2009. We were met at the airport by Jerzey who gave us a tour of the important locations on the way. We were allocated a wonderful suite which overlooked North Creek. The house was undergoing some external renovation after the hurricane in 2008, but this did not spoil our stay in any way. The pool was superb and was clean and refreshing. We were provided with a car for the duration of our stay. It was just right and, in our opinion, an absolute must if you want to get the most from the Island. We visited almost all the other Hotels and B&B's on the Island and I have ti stay that we were really pleased that we were staying at the Island House. The WiFi was a great bonus which meant we could 'Skype' the family back in the UK at no cost. The house is serviced daily which we did not expect. Like someone else has said, the food prices on the Island are expensive, so take some with you if you can. We had a really good time on the Island and at Island House. We would recommend it to all.
