This was the first time my husband and I visited Grand Turk. We chose the island because the dive sites are known to be pristine and located within a 10 minute boat ride from the beaches. We were not disappointed with the diving, apartment, the location on the beautiful beach and the weather. There are amazing breezes that come through the living/kitchen area of the apartment with air conditioning in the bedrooms. Air would not be needed in the main living area since the breezes keep it cool. The veranda that sits beach front is wonderful. The wicker furniture is comfortable and the ocean views are stunning. The sunsets out front are beautiful. The island is very quiet and remote. There are only a few restaurants and the grocery stores are limited. But that was what we expected from an island that is not overly touristy. We went to Jack's Shack on the 3 afternoons that the cruise ships were in. The jerk chicken there was great and the beach is gorgeous. They are only open when the ships are in so plan accordingly. The bike ride there is easy too. Our favorite spot was Sand Bar. The grouper is amazing and the beers cold. The location on the beach cannot be beat. Bohio has the most romantic dinner spot and best food. The Salt Raker Inn's Secret Garden restaurant is really good too. We also enjoyed listening to Mitch Rolling and his band play at different spots throughout the week. Just ask around when you get to the island to figure out when and where the entertainment is. We also rode the bikes to the lighthouse one afternoon. It is a bit steep but if you are in shape it isn't too bad. The views there are stunning. Just walk past the lighthouse around to the cliffs.
We either walked or rode the bikes anywhere we needed to go. The only time we used a cab was to have dinner at Bohio since it is the furthest away. There is no need for a rental car.

The diving was great. We dove with Blue Water Divers. They picked us up by boat every morning at 9 at our beach. We then went to a close by beach for our surface intervals which was really relaxing. The water was a bit cool at 77. Fine for surface swimming but you do get cool when you are down for an hour. You will need a 3-7 mm suit and maybe a hood for this time of year. The reef is really healthy with lots of great life. We saw some reef sharks, nurse sharks, turtles, tons of smaller sea life that was really interesting. The highlight was definitely running into 3 dolphins at about 30 feet that swam around us and played for several minutes before moving on. It was surreal.
The island has several wild donkeys, horses and dogs. The dogs are very friendly and the three that live outside Crabtree are really sweet. They don’t come on the veranda unless invited. We purchased some dog food and fed them daily. This made us instant friends and they followed us everywhere. The island is very dog friendly so the dogs were welcome at all the restaurants since they are outdoors. We were sad to leave the dogs but know they’ll be taken care of.

Crabtree is a great place to stay. I highly recommend it. The island is quiet and remote. So if that is your intentions you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I just spent a week diving and beaching on Grand Turk while staying at Crabtree Apartments. The 3 unit building is located directly on the beach and is within walking distance of town. Our unit was spacious, and very clean. It had 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, kitchen, t.v.'s, verandah, wifi, bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, sheets, and a cell phone for local calls. The Janes have paid attention to all the details. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport, and had cereal boxes, milk, coffee, soap, and shampoo in the unit to cover us until we could go shopping.

I dove with Grand Turk Diving,, which is a short walk down the beach. They were excellent and I highly recommend them if you are diving or snorkeling.

I don't think you can beat the value Crabtree Apartments has to offer if you're looking for top notch accommodations while diving or hanging out on the beach.

“Amazing cottage style apartment in paradise”

Hidden away in the Caribbean is a cluster of islands called Turks & Caicos, Grand Turk is where the capital is, but this laid back island does not feel like a capital. The Crabtree Apartments that we stayed at were situated on an amazing beach, with a nice patio you could step off of into soft white sand. Snorkel from your beach, or walk into town for lunch or dinner. The place was clean, came with everything you needed, including 2 bicycles to explore the island. The owners provided a great summary of things to do, see, amenities, and recommendations, and even made sure we had basic groceries in the fridge when we arrived. They were very prompt in responses to questions or needs we had both before we arrived and during our stay. Highly recommend Crabtree Apartments, although I am not sure I want everyone to know about our new secret paradise.

“Peaceful paradise”

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday on an idyllic island with lovely uncrowded beaches, clear turquoise water, great snorkelling (and diving) and friendly people than head for Grand Turk.

If you are debating where to stay, put the Crabtree apartments at the top of your list.

My husband and I just returned from our 3rd visit to Grand Turk and our first stay at the Crabtree and couldn't have been more pleased. Our unit was very clean, well equipped, private and steps from a lovely little beach.

We have no doubt we will return for a 4th visit and another relaxing stay at the Crabtree. Highly recommended!
