“Grand vacation on Grace Bay”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We visited the Aquamarine Beach Houses Jan 14-19, renting the SandDune beach level unit. It was the ideal relaxation spot for our 4 generation family (8 of us from ages 1 to 85). The unit was well maintained and kept in great shape with daily cleaning. Paula (owner/manager) was the perfect hostess. She was very welcoming and put us right at ease after we arrived from our long travel. The beach houses are well stocked with all of the little items that are so handy (beach gear, kitchen items, coffee, baby equipment, etc) Snorkeling and lazing on the beach were our top activities and there is no better place for that. We loved the fact that even in January the water is a nice temperature. It was almost always sunny with highs in the low 80s every day. A few of us took advantage of the horseback riding (along the beach) available practically next door. On the other side is a park where they have local food and music every Thursday night. We also appreciated being very close (5 minute drive) to Turtle Cove, with some good restaurants and boat excursions. "Downtown" Grace Bay was only a little further in the opposite direction. The IGA grocery store is also close, but since it is uphill and across the relatively busy Leeward highway, it was nice to be able to drive there in 5 minutes. We also give great kudos to the gardener who keeps the grounds nicely landscaped and meticulous, and even chopped down some fresh coconuts for us. The cleaning staff is all very friendly, and everything about the place shows attention to detail. In fact, we found everyone on the island to be very friendly.

Room Tip: Beach level is convenient, and great for people for whom stairs might be a problem, but you might ge...

My wife and I stayed here for a week during our first trip to Turks and Caicos. This is a "mini resort" without the crowds. It is located on a beautiful stretch of beach within walking distance down the beach of some restaurants/bars. The units and grounds are well maintained with a nice swimming pool and tennis court. Kayaks, sun shell umbrellas and beach chairs are available and there is decent snorkelling right off the shore.
A special mention needs to be made about Paula-she is a hands on owner and makes sure you are taken care of.
This was a good experience and we will be going back.
Only suggestion would be to rent a car if you stay here if you are the type to go to different restaurants each night.

There really is not much to add if you have read any of the other reviews. It is all true. We have been the Caribbean dozens of times and have never stayed in a place like this. It is spotless and well kept up. Paula has a sense of detail and attention to guests needs that you will not find in many places. Because these are not condo units they are much better maintained. It is as if you are a guest in her home. The value here compared to neighboring hotels is enormous. Beach 100 feet from your door is one of the worlds best. Snorkeling reef off shore plus also walk down to Coral Gardens and do the snorkel trail there. If there is any downside it is that there are no services such as a restaurant or someone to set up your chair or umbrella. Cabanas and chairs are provided but you need to set them up and bring them back yourself. Housekeeping is provided daily and staff are very friendly. On site tennis volley ball and pool plus kayaks snorkel etc. Massages arranged for much less than hotels nearby so ask Paula. Will be back

I was in Turks and Caicos for a conference and found this gem! It has room for about 30-40 people I believe though it may hold more. Paula was very friendly and welcoming. Both owners were present and very friendly. We played tennis together and they provided great insight as to hotspots for what you like on the Island.

Highly recommended!
Looking forward to going back.

In late December and early January I was happy that I was able to stay at Aquamarine Beach Houses for the second time. It is truly hard for me to conceive of a better place to stay. The location is utter perfection; on the beach but the cottages are set back 30 yards or so, so while it is beachfront, it is also private. The cottages themselves are wonderful. Theyarecomfortable, clean, and extremely well-maintained. And then there are Paula and John, who in every way make you feel like you are staying with friends rather than with innkeepers. When was the last time that you stayed at a place and the owner insisted on driving you to the airport rather than letting you take a cab? That's what John will do, and he will absolutely refuse to listen if you tell him that that's too much pof a bother for him. That's just an example of what they are like.

If you go to the Turks and Caicos, and if you can get reservations at ABH, my very strong suggestion is that you look no further and stay at what will very likely be the best place you've ever stayed on any beach anywhere.

Room Tip: They are all good.

I have travelled extensively throughout the islands and must say that ABH is by far the BEST. Location, accommodations, attention to detail, cleanliness, awesome hosts, snorkelling very close by, quiet, and a gorgeous beach. We've stayed at ABH now three times in the past two years and intend on visiting every year. You cannot go wrong staying at Aquamarine Beach Houses! (Note: I selected "Excellent" for a fitness centre however, there isn't one so this isn't applicable)

We stayed in Aquamarine Beach Houses in mid-January 2014 and we enjoyed it a lot. Houses are located directly at the beach and no more than 100 steps is needed to get into the beautiful ocean. Furthermore coral reef is just meters away so after a short swim one can enjoy fantastic reef life spotting. Beach Houses are very well equipped allowing preparing own meals if someone prefers (even barbecue is provided). In addition all water (masks, snorkels, noodles, etc.) and other (tennis rockets) is provided. There is also a swimming pool but honestly having the large one in front we did not use it much. We will do our best to come back.
