Crabtree Apartments
Reviewed 13 January 2013

Stayed at the Crabtree Apartments this past December 2012-January 5th,2013. We had a wonderful stay in the South unit, unit 1. Beautiful location with the beach and ocean right outside of the back door. Sound was never an issue between the aprtments or from the road. You do hear from the veranda just because they are attached but the wall between makes it private. The pictures are exactly what you get. The veranda was my favourite spot in the morning to read and have my coffee....it was my hubby's favourite spot for an afternoon catnap and reading his book in the late evening. The ocean breezes kept the apartment cool through the day and night. Both bedrooms have air conditioners which we sometimes used. The sounds of the waves when you wake up is amazing. The apartment was just what we needed, and the bedrooms spacious and bright. We ate in the apartment most evenings and went out for lunch on some days. Kitchen is well equipped to eat / cook in, if that is what you wish. We enjoyed fresh fish a few times that we cooked ourselves....people are so friendly...just ask and you will find where locals go for fresh fish, to eat, or to buy groceries/food...It took some time to navigate ourselves but the apartment is in a great location for getting to restuarants or grocery stores. You could use the bikes provided or walk. The merchanidise choices in the stores are not what I am used to, but was ready for that. We are a family of 4 and tavelled with our 2 boys (9 and 11). Some comments on various review sites said that 11 days on Grand Turk would be too sleepy for 2 energentic boys but that was so far from the truth. They snorkled everyday right in front of the apartment. Found that this was the best location compared to all the other beaches we visited. Of course a trip to some reefs in the middle of the ocean is still the best. Could walk the beach in both directions also, which I did everyday. Great beach to collect shells and sea glass. We rented a golf cart for a week and this was a great way to explore and find grocery stores or just visit various sites. The dogs are wonderful too. Be sure to pack some dog kibble and treats with you to feed them. They are lovely.
It was a wonderful trip....hubby and I came back more rejuvinated than we have from a vacation EVER! Kids are asking when we will return ;)

We spent six night at Crabtree Apartments. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very nicely decorated and there are lots of thoughtful touches. We really appreciated having some food essentials and many spices provided at the outset. The full kitchen is wonderful. Most days we chose to make our breakfast and lunch and then went out to dinner.

The location is phenomenal! We walked all over the island from there. It is close enough to easily walk to restaurants but far enough away that it was always quiet.

If you are coffee drinkers, we advise bringing some good ground coffee. We appreciated the coffee provided for us but wished that we had brought some with us. Also, know that groceries are not cheap because everything, with the exception of seafood, must be flown in. Also, this is an apartment and not a hotel, there is no front desk or services once you get there.

Our only gripe is that the bed wasn't very comfortable. However, we are already talking about going back.

We had the most fabulous and relaxing time at the Crabtree! What a fantastic place - right out of a dream. So close to the water with stunning views, sea breezes and the wonderful sound of waves 24/7. Absolute paradise!

In addition to the perfect apartment (we stayed in unit three), we had the loyal companionship of three adorable dogs throughout our stay - Smiley, Susie and Bella. They accompanied us on beach walks and just hung out with us on the beach. I miss them so much! If you go, please hug them for us.

Be sure to visit the TCSPCA in town to learn about the animal situation on the island and make a donation - they are doing a wonderful job.

You can't go wrong staying here - it was perfect!

Take a day trip to Salt Cay if possible and ask about visting the "white house." Google "white house, Salt Cay" for more info.

We had the best time at the Crabtree. We kept saying this is one website that does not do justice to the beauty. The warmth of the sun, the sound of the waves and the feel of the breeze is just something that can't be captured by the photos. It is completely relaxed . No fast food and no one pestering you on the beach. Tshirts and shorts were the fanciest we got. The cruise ship docking were completely a none is issue. We maybe had one or two people walk by on the beach a day. We would step off the porch onto the beach having our coffee and swim, snorkel and read all day. The locals were all so very kind and helpful. We found our "spot" for dinner at the Sandbar. My children who did not like fish, LOVED their fish. We went scuba diving, and snorkeling, and simply enjoyed the sun and the surf. It turned out that the three families at the Crabtree took a snorkeling trip together for a conch lunch on a beach where we swam with stingrays and enjoyed a wonderful meal of the fresh conch. It was a wonderful day trip. When we got on the plane to go home, we already started thinking of when we can get back there. We will definetly be back.

Our experience at Crabtree seems to mirror what many others have already said: it was great. We've been taking diving trips to the Caribbean for several years now and this was by far the nicest accommodations that we've had. The apartment was clean and thoughtfully prepared for our stay. Grand Turk doesn't offer a wide selection of dining options so being able to cook at home was a huge benefit and all the basic kitchen supplies were there. The bikes made getting around the island very easy and have attached baskets to facilitate trips to the grocery store. There are even some very sweet resident dogs for those who miss pets at home (although they will keep their distance if not invited on the porch for some attention).

We will certainly stay at Crabtree next time we're on Grand Turk.

I recently travelled to Grand Turk for the first time, and stayed at Crabtree Apartments. Our stay was simply perfect. The apartment had everything we needed, including eggs, juice, toast and coffee for the first morning, which we all thought was a great touch! The furnishings were lovely, spotless, and up-to-date, and set against the ever-present georgious view of the ocean just steps away made it just heavenly!! The bedrooms were beautiful - one with a king, the other with a set of twins - both roomy, airy, with nice windows for the ocean breezes as well as ceiling fans, closet space and bureaus. The bathroom was as nice as any I've seen and clean as a whistle. The patio off the living and master bedroom also not only had a comfy set of table/chairs, but also a set of outdoor wicker sofa/chairs from which to watch the mesmerizing view of that aqua water while sipping the pina coladas! The water was so clear and clean, the temperature was exactly right - cool enough to be refreshing, but warm enough to coax us in.

The island itself is charmingly rustic, with no commercialsim whatsoever. The island restaraunts provided great dinners and some lively local entertainment which was such fun. SEveral eateries were within an easy walk from Crabtree, so no car is needed.

I would very highly recommend Crabtree Apartments if you are looking for a good rest, and a private ocean experience in this part of paradise!!

This modern beach front apartment included all that is necessary for comfortable vacation lodging. From the moment I stepped through the front door and witnessed the view ahead to the time of departure, I was struck with both the warm and practicial furnishings of our Crabtree Apartment. The added touches were not missed; butter, eggs and milk in the refrigerator and bread and bottled water on the counter. I would recommend this to those looking for a quiet vacation where the warm sand and the torquoise water of the Carribean are steps from the porch.
