About this apartment

SUMMARY: Quaint 2 bedroom, 1 bath, beachfront apartment unit, in a single story building, nestled on a sandy beach overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Our unit has gorgeous views from almost every room and a wonderful covered beach side veranda where you can listen to the gentle lapping of the sea and view the beautiful sunsets. Come enjoy our wonderful swimming and snorkeling beach, the best of both worlds. Belongers (the native islanders) say it's the 2nd best beach on the island, Governors Beach, a public beach, being #1. We are an easy 10 minute walk to town and restaurants.


GRAND TURK is a charming 'Old World' Caribbean island with quaint colonial buildings lining the narrow walled streets. The local people are very friendly on this laid-back Caribbean island. This is a British governed island, the currency is the US dollar.



INTRODUCTION: Crabtree Apartments is a small apartment complex consisting of only 3 units, side-by-side, in a single story building. They are nestled on the beach with gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea. You will enjoy wonderful views from nearly every room in the apartment. Both the living room and one of the bedrooms open onto a large private beach front veranda where you can relax to the sound of the gently lapping waves. The veranda is sure to be your favorite place to relax with cocktails while you watch the sunset and maybe even catch a glimpse of the infamous "Green Flash". It's so enjoyable to breakfast on the veranda watching the birds fly by and see the color of the sea change from vibrant royal blue to turquoise as the sun rises higher in the sky. We have three units available; you can find them all here; listing numbers:



Unit 1 (South End Unit) 4061413

Unit 2 (Center Unit) 4061415 - our largest unit connects with Unit 3 for large families

Unit 3 (North End Unit) 53010 - connects with Unit 2 for large families and groups



APARTMENT DESCRIPTION: This unit has a fully equipped kitchen, we even supply a few spices and a few grocery items to get your started. We know that after a day of travel the last thing you want to do is try to find the grocery store and shop. We supply a few breakfast items so that you can go out to dinner that night, have breakfast at the apartment in the morning, get your bearings and do your food shopping. We have 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, one with a King size bed and views of the sea, it has access to the veranda with the beach just beyond. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds that can be put together as a king bed, if you prefer, with views of the Salina and all the wildlife it attracts. The unit has 1 bath with a large tile shower. The bedrooms are separated by the bath, giving the bedrooms a bit more privacy. The dining/living room boast wonderful views of the sea and opens to a large, private veranda. You step from your private veranda directly onto the beach. The sea is literally right outside your door! There is a constant tropical breeze that flows through the apartment creating a pleasant atmosphere to relax.



We are located on a beautiful quiet beach, in a nice quiet residential neighborhood. Restaurants and town are an easy 10 minute walk away.



ABOUT GRAND TURK: Grand Turk is a small “Old World” Caribbean island. The island has maintained the charm of the colonial days due to the many antique colonial Bermudian buildings and white washed walled lined streets. You’ll feel

as though you stepped back in time as you venture out for an evening stroll. There are beautiful views from nearly every place you visit on the island. Many of the restaurants are seated on the edge of the beach, a romantic setting for a leisurely meal. The local people are friendly and welcoming. The Turks and Caicos are considered some of the safest in the Caribbean, they are British governed islands but the currency is the U.S. Dollar.


Come and visit us here in our little piece of paradise. We literally are perched on the edge of the beach with all the amenities of your own apartment right at your fingertips. We know you will love it and look forward to seeing you.



NOTE: What we have that most other apartment and house rentals on Grand Turk don't have; We have the beach right outside your door and we are a pleasant residential area within walking distance to town and restaurants. Your rental unit will be directly on the beach. Our beach and swimming has very little seaweed and has a firm sandy bottom swimming area. Our family have run this vacation rental, on Grand Turk, since 2004 and have earned an excellent 5 star reputation. See our reviews on listing number 53010.

    Fantastic family and diving vacation

    This is the 2nd time my wife and I have stayed here at the Crabtree Apartments. The first time in 2012 and we couldn't believe it took us this long for us to return because we had such a great time then. As usual it did not disappoint from the very beginning the taxi was waiting for us as set up by Jessalyn. When we got to the Crabtree as we walked in the everything was perfectly set up and clean just as we remembered with some food in the frig. And what a beautiful beach view out the back door Wow!! Jessalyn will send an email with all the island info there is also an info book in the apartment everything you will need to enjoy your stay on Grand Turk. Diving is always great here on Grand Turk we used Bluewater Divers and while diving with our divemaster Kingdry the 2nd day we had an amazing experience swimming with a beautiful Sunfish at the Coral Garden dive site which is straight out from the Crabtree. We had my wife's 2 sisters and one brother in law on this trip hopefully more will come next year and it will be a yearly vacation for us. We all had a great relaxing vacation can't wait to return. Thank you, Jeff D.

    Paradise found

    This had everything we needed for a relaxing get-away-from-it-all trip yet all the comforts of home. Jessalyn was great with the booking and communication and even arranging for Jack to pick us up from the airport. We are in love with this place and already discussing our return escape!

    Wonderful as always

    I always enjoy the Crabtree. I love to shop and cook and the kitchen is so well appointed. The linens are wonderful, furniture clean and comfortable, you feel like a valued personal guest. The beach and water are just so perfect, snorkeling is spectacular right in your own private back yard!

    BEWARE!!! Absolute Perfection

    THIS PLACE IS ABSOLUTE PARADISE!!! So, beware as it will be extremely difficult (if not, impossible) to return to your ‘normal’ life after staying at the Crabtree on Grand Turk. The pictures and video do not do the units justice. The living room, kitchen, porch, and bedrooms are the perfect size along with the provided amenities - especially the awesome cruiser bicycles. Other than food and bottled water, you really need to bring nothing else. And the beach is absolute perfection. The soft white sand, the warm, crystal clear water, and coral reefs (yup - plural) are right outside your backdoor. Additionally, the Turks and Caicos natives (“Belongers” or “Turkasians”) are genuinely warm and friendly that you feel are an extension of their family. Everyone we met wanted to ensure we had an enjoyably time in their country and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. For those looking for the perfect vacation filled with incredibly warm culture, delicious food, beautiful beach-front property, and a heavenly beach, you’ve found it! We now intend to make this an annual trip. Enjoy!!! (though you’ve been warned)

    LOVED IT!

    Wow! What a perfect spot. We enjoyed every moment. It was so well appointed and clean. You can’t beat the beach. We went with our daughter and it was heaven.

    Location, location, location!

    Could not pick a better spot. With secluded beach right out the back door, was amazing to wake up and walk outside to that view. Snorkeling was awesome 20 yards from shore with fish like Angelfish, Flounder, Barracuda, Stingrays, Porcupinefish, and more all spotted in the 'backyard'! Amenities were also great with everything needed in the kitchen, bedrooms and living room. Definitely recommend renting a golf cart to get around the island, well worth the $$$. All in all, the most relaxing vacation that we have ever taken and very pleased with Crabtree Apartments!

    Perfect . . . Again!

    This was our second stay at Crabtree Apartments. This time we brought another family with us, and we rented the adjoining units. We all loved it. The location is perfect, the beach is amazing and is what keeps us coming back. You will literally be the only one on your own private stretch of beach. You can float, hunt for shells or seaglass, snorkel or simply plant yourself in a beach chair to take a nap as you listen to the water lap the shoreline. If sun is not really your thing, you can sit on the cushioned furniture on the deck and simply stare at the beauty before you. I have never seen such beautiful colors as the water that surrounds Grand Turk. The apartment has everything you could ever need and is spotless. The thoughtfulness of the owners is apparent in all of the attention to detail. The wifi and cable television are an added bonus, but the simplicity of the island and a chance to get away from it all is really why we go. Jessalyn is so easy to work with and the dogs, Chase and Paws, who have adopted those who stay at Crabtree are the icing on the cake. New rental options have popped up on Grand Turk in the 5 years that have passed since our first stay, but I wouldn't stay anywhere other than at Crabtree Apartments. Thanks for making it so easy!

    Absolutely loved GTI and Crabtree apartment

    Our first visit to the island. Was sad to see the devastation caused by the back to back hurricanes last year. Slowly trying to rebuild. Loved the quaintness of Crabtree and the dogs & donkeys ❤️ Restaurant food was a bit expensive but soooooo good. Beaches & water was so beautiful that we often just sat on the veranda and watched the ocean. Snorkeling was great right in front of apartment. Found bunch of conch shells. Arelys and Fernando,the managers, responded to every need in very timely manner. Would highly recommend Grand Turk island and Crabtree apts to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation on a beautiful beach. Will be going again soon❤️❤️

    Diving getaway

    When the airline cancelled our trip to the Netherlands Antilles, we had to find a place we could get to in order to breathe compressed air. We had dived the TCI previously so decided to go back. The dive shop owner suggested Crabtree apartments and we’re glad she did. They are located 1.1 km from the dive shops and eateries so an easy stroll, even with gear. The apartment was spotless when we arrived (yes… even men notice such things) and everything worked. Bedrooms have A/C but the trade winds keep the living area quite comfortable. We leave today but would stay here again any time!

    Peaceful, Private and Perfect for us

    We had an absolutely fabulous week at Crabtree. We rented all 3 apartments for a family of 12 on a trip to celebrate the grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. The apartments were perfect for us, giving some privacy to each family unit, but space to gather with the two adjoining apartments. The location was incredible, right on the beach, with a nice sandy area under trees to relax. I will never forget waking up and walking right out onto the sand in the morning. We essentially had a private beach to ourselves. Only a few people occasionally strolled by. The cruise ships never bothered us, most people stay down at the cruise port and it was fun to watch the ships come in and out each day. The island is very authentic and very different than Provo (we also stayed 5 days there). We loved the quietness and charm (do not expect a ton to do on the island). We love the Gibbs Cay excursion, one of the most unique experiences we've ever had (swimming with stingrays). The dogs were a huge hit with all of our kids (6 kids ages 8-20). They were sweet and followed us everywhere, even found us the one day we went to Margaritaville. Overall, one of the best vacations we've had and perfect for our family of 12. Jessalyn was wonderful with advice for excursions, catering for our anniversary party, and other advice. Thank you Jessalyn for a fabulous vacation we will remember for a lifetime!
