Our apartment at Crabtree was everything it promised to be and more, even better than the photos: spotlessly clean, quiet, peaceful, right smack on the ocean and the sound of waves all day and night. With loving attention to every single detail. The space was a delight, full of light, beautifully decorated - things like billowing white cotton curtains instead of ugly miniblinds, all the colours - buttercup yellow, aqua, white - from dishes to quilts, to little touches of Caribbean decoration like sweet mermaids , shells, a few wooden birds. Just charming. I could move right in - it totally appealed to my sensibilities. Gentle, soft. Just the right furniture - wicker and bamboo - in just the right paces, and lots of soft lamps so you can avoid the overhead glare. Arelys, the charming and attentive local concierge, who you can call for help for whatever, on the cell phone provided.
Everything you could need to cook (which we mostly did) including colanders, pots, baking pans for casseroles - and the dishes - and even they fit in decor-wise too. Blues and whites. Abundant fans overhead, also AC in bedrooms when needed, though there are often strong breezes. Wide screen door to the shady veranda and the ocean..at high tide the ocean washed up to about 12 feet from the lowest step down to the soft sand beach.
Almost nobody walks by - 2 people a day? I took my beach chair - the canvas kind that has very short legs, and stuck it into the sand to sit on while the waves washed over my legs, and just sat staring at the incoming waves, wondering, which one is going to be the big one that hits me right in the face? such fun and keeps sand out of your bathing suit bottom.
And the potcakes Chase & Smiley, who, I discovered, actually belong to another home but prefer hanging out at Crabtree, sleeping on the nice soft warm sand. Hint: they don't like canned dog food in chunks - but do love tuna mixed with an egg and grated cheese, or pasty dog food in cans. They are smart as whips, bark at all who walk down the street (almost no-one) to defend their territory and protect YOU. We met Chase at the gas station one day. He's been seen at the Cruise centre.
We bought them a large bag of dog chow, accidentally left it outside, and the roaming burros, attracted by the smell, found it and had a grand time - they ripped it open and everyone, even the shyest, ate, Chase trying to bark them out the whole time. After that I bought cabbage, chopped it & kept it in the fridge for when they appeared - but they didn't. Finally I gave the cabbage to some guys riding horses to the cruise centre in the mornings.
We were barely aware of neighbours in other units, who were all as quiet as us - no blasting TV or other noise coming through the walls.
The only noise, at night, come from barking dogs sounding like they're having dog fights - but with next to nothing in the way of vets ( a new one has just arrived) there is always the problem of potcakes breeding - but that is the way it has alway been - there IS a very active potcake rescue on Provo. Sometimes at night I just just the window & used AC instead of ocean breeze.
Jack was our gentleman of a taxi driver to & from the airport. We rented a golf cart from Nathan's rentals - our battery conked out & he came right over to fix it & on our last morning came over with Jack in the taxi to collect the cart - lives near-by.
Even I, who was afraid to drive on the British side of the road, was fine, as there is barely any traffic.
Once you get to know your way around, you realize the island is only 7 miles long and 1 mile wide and though many streets appear to not have names, just ask anyone for how to get somewhere. Usually they don't know the names either, but you'll get there eventually. Like to find John's Ocean Breeze for cracked conch, you look for the guys playing dominoes under the tree.
Crabtree only 5 minutes from Duke St & the lower end of the old cobblestone village, also the closest grocery store, gas station & liquor store - all very close.
Gorgeous as Grace Bay is, on Provo, we now prefer Grand Turk and would come straight back to the Crabtree. Do not expect Tim's or Macdonalds, or fancy shopping, or thankfully, highrises - and I hope none of them ever appear on Grand Turk. Yes, it's a desert, lots of old buildings falling into ruins or destroyed by hurricanes, and almost no shade, but for reading and the ocean and truly getting away from it all, with total privacy this is the sweetest place to be.

“Very Relaxing!!!”

Wow, this is an exceptional place to visit and stay if you looking to absolutely relax. If your looking to be pampered, spoiled and waited on hand and foot, go to a Sandals. If you want peace, tranquility and time to sit undisturbed by the ocean listening to the waves and reading a good book, this is the place for you. The property is in an amazing location. The island is laid back and the people are very nice. We rented a golf cart for 8 days and drove it all over the island. Grocery stores, restaurants and liquor store are all just a few minutes away. The resident pups are a real treat! I highly recommend Grand Turk and the Crabtree apartments. We will definitely be making a return trip in the future!

“Paradise is Crabtree, with the ocean roar and salina within breathing distance.”

Our trip was nothing short of perfect. Thank you so much, Jessalyn. We had a great time, each and every day better than the last. The clouds and rain predicted were a godsend! Not much for rain but the clouds probably saved us from massive sunburns. After walking to the store and almost melting on our way back, we rented a car for the entire stay which allowed us to see the island from top to bottom. Cracked conch and conch fritters became a household favourite. Grand Turk is a beautiful island. We never saw one person other than ourselves on the beach for our entire stay!! The apartment was perfect - lots of A/C and fans. Internet worked great. When we return, we will definitely be staying here again!!

“Spectacular Crabtree Get Away, Grand Turk”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

The Crabtree Apartments are an ocean front retreat that has three bright, colorful, spacious, side by side, clean units with an incredible panoramic view of the Grand Turk reef and ocean vista. These accommodations are on a picturesque island a few steps from your patio to the beach with incredible sunsets and beautiful views all day long. Sand barriers to the right and left of the property create a nestled, quiet and tranquil setting. The private beach reef outside your door is great for swimming and snorkeling. Nearby are diving opportunities at this diver's paradise. These caribbean style accommodations are bright with 2 air conditioned bedrooms, common area, well appointed kitchen and covered patio with beach view. Great location to enjoy snorkeling, diving, island relaxation, reading beachside or time with family. Bikes are included. Bike 5 min. to restaurants, grocery store and downtown area.

From dawn to dusk these great accommodations and the beautiful ocean front provide a relaxed and stress free environment. I look forward to returning to the sunsets, friendly locals and visitors, restaurants, quiet, safe, stress free environment and, of course, the excellent diving opportunities!

“Delightful apartment”
Reviewed 29 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

Crabtree apartments are perfect for a relaxing in Grand Turk. It was easy to communicate with the owners and they provided excellent instructions on the apartment. The apartment is light, bright, clean, very nicely furnished and well maintained. Beds are comfortable. The location is ideal, literally steps from the beautiful beach and turquoise ocean. Although it is just a couple of miles from the airport the planes that fly here are small and there is no worry about airport noise. Both bedrooms have A/C units. We found that during the daytime opening the screened windows and doors provided a great cooling breeze but we did use the A/C at night. There are mosquitos at dusk so use repellant if you sit out on the veranda at that time. Some nice restaurants are within walking (along the beach) distance. We appreciated the bicycles and used them to go to the grocery stores and bike into the town - it takes about 5 minutes. The apartment has a local cell phone which was useful to make local calls. The lady who cleans the apartments stopped by during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed. The "potcake" dogs are a delightful extra that comes with the rental. They became our loyal companions after we fed them - walking us down the beach and guarding the door from other local dogs.

“Fantastic week on Grand Turk at the Crabtree Apartments”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed for one week in the Crabtree Apartments. Our family of 10 rented all three units of Crabtree and loved it! It was our first time to Grand Turk and staying at Crabtree made it all the better. It was very comfortable, has a terrific location in the middle of things, offers plenty of space and they have all the details covered - beach and bath towels, well appointed kitchen (we cooked many meals throughout the week), lounge chairs for the sand and comfortable beds. The beach right outside the back door is amazing! The back porch is a great place to see the sunset after snorkeling during the day. Just walk right out the door into beautiful blue, clear water and see fish and corral - it is breathtaking! We also had the beach and water to ourselves. The area in front of our apartments was our private beach - fantastic! Grand Turk was such an adventure for all of us - ranging in age from 18 to 80. We rented two golf carts for the week to tour the island sites, go to the grocery stores and eat at a few restaurants. We highly recommend Grand Turk if you want a low-key, unplugged getaway and Crabtree is certainly the place to stay.

We stayed in Apt 1 and thought is was the best of the three. The accommodation is well laid out, decor smart and has everything you would want. The beach directly in front is almost a private beach where you can swim and snorkel. There are bicycles for you to use and they are excellent for touring the island and for using to go out in the evening. The "pot cakes" are stray dogs that are so friendly that some are adopted and taken back to the USA. You can't help but like them! Crabtree offers all you would want to enjoy Grand Turk!
