“Footsteps to the Water”

To adequately describe our stay at Conch Cottage on North Caicos requires two reviews—one of the lovely house and its very responsive stateside owner with her cheery, patient, capable onsite management team and another review concerning the nature of North Caicos. Our family of four adults thoroughly enjoyed Christmas week at the property. The house is clean, modern and bright and large enough to provide sleeping privacy in its two comfortable bedrooms and loft with a fold-out sofa bed (which overlooks the living room on one side and the sea on the other). The master bedroom also faces the sea through a screened sliding glass door and there are ceiling fans in every room to redistribute the tropical air through the screened windows on all sides of the house. The kitchen is well-equipped including spices and condiments left by previous tenants as well as a variety of sunscreen products. Along with hairdryers in both bathrooms, there are more than enough towels to dry off from frequent forays into the warm inviting turquoise water of the Caribbean that is literally footsteps from the large front porch comfortably furnished with a hammock, padded loungers, chairs and a table. The conch shell-lined building lot has thick coastal shrubbery on the east and rear sides, a private home (by the same builder) to the west and fronts a natural stone seawall with a sloping rock and sand walkway cut-out that provides access to the sandy beach. For changes of scenery within walking distance there is a barefoot-casual restaurant-bar on the beach to the west, a crescent-shaped natural cove to the east, and rental kayaks available for paddling north toward the island’s reef. A basic food market (which in 2012 was open on both Christmas and Boxing Days) is a ten minute (½ mile) walk along the irregularly paved and sandy road that leads to the cottage. The bar and the market both accept credit cards.

As wonderfully delightful the experience was for our family, potential renters should be aware that the appeal of North Caicos is in its natural beauty and remoteness rather than its resort-like amenities. There are lots of bugs and two types of small lizards (but only one tiny non-poisonous snake.) Itchy no-see-um bites are unavoidable souvenirs. We easily rented a jeep for day trips to snorkel at Three Mary’s Cay and the breathtakingly beautiful Mudjin Beach on Middle Caicos as well as to eat fried fish and conch at Daniels and explore the Conch Bar Cave. But the island is not for the shopping/golfing/haute-cuisine set and I cannot recommend it for someone seeking a place for a working vacation. With only 350 residents, there are not enough adults available to staff and support a lot of tourist’s demands. The sea air is also corrosive to electronics. Television reception is iffy. The house is equipped with wifi, but when it failed to work as it did during our stay, the combination of the holidays, and the “island time” mind set of the internet service provider meant that 6 days passed before a repair was made. None of our smart phones (that have worked in other remote parts of the world) could be used for phone calls either. The house does come with a reloadable local cellular phone, however, and we were able to use it to communicate with the property managers and make phone calls to the US on Christmas day.

From the Providenciales airport, North Caicos island is reached by two ferry services, TCI and MyGirl, ($50 roundtrip per person plus the cost of transportation to and from the airport which costs $40-$55 per person.) The boats theoretically run from Providenciales 5 times a day during the week (the last boat to North Caicos is scheduled to leave at 5:00pm) and 3 times a day on weekends except in the case of our departure day where for some inexplicable reason the TCI ferry, for which we held tickets and a reservation, after discharging a load of passengers at the North Caicos Sandy Point pier, departed without any passengers leaving us and 15 others stranded. Fortunately, after much wrangling via telephone, the Captain of the MyGirl ferry agreed to transport the 9 passengers holding the return tickets of his competitor so we were able to get to the airport on time to make our once-a-week Delta flight back to Atlanta. Because of the vagaries of the ferry service between North Caicos, for peace of mind I would recommend shouldering a week’s stay at Conch Cottage with hotel stays in Providenciales, particularly if traveling during the high season when the ferries are crowded and the airport experiences flight arrival delays caused by inclement winter weather in the states. As an alternative there sometimes is plane charter availability to North Caicos but that service too functions on island time.

I am so glad that you loved the house! The island is very special and is for those who want to get away and enjoy nature. Unfortunately services on the island are often unpredictable (internet, cable, etc) but we do our best to fix things as soon as possible. I was greatly distress to hear about the issue with the ferry and spoke with the manager at TCI Ferry as soon as I heard. This was a fluke thing. They are very reliable. The wonderful thing about the island is that if something doesn't go as plan everyone is happy to help make things right.
Thank you for spending your holiday here. Christmas in the Caribbean is an amazing thing. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the beach and the beautiful ocean views from the house.

We were looking for a non-resort get-away on a beautiful beach and this is what we got in Conch Cottage.
This is a very well appointed, private, quiet get-away on a small island that still leaves room for various exploration, including, of course, beach-combing, hiking historical sites, relaxing and water activity.
Everything you need, including a grocery a 5-minute walk away, is right there, so no need to go anywhere, but opportunities for exploring the nearby Middle Caicos by car and other sites by boat if it suits.
Weather was unexpectedly windy and not as calm for our two-year old but we did find calmer waters on the island.
