Windrose Estate – awesome Beach House!
Left on Jan 31, 2016 for a stay in Jan 2016
We stayed at Windrose the last week of January. We were 4 young families, 8 adults and 5 little kids (ages 3yrs to 6mths). We rented the main house and the cottage. We loved this house. It was comfortable, casually elegant and kid friendly. There were pretty flowers in vases all through the house when we arrived. The lights are all on dimmers and we were provided with cute little candles on the dining room table. These details make a difference. The house isn’t a fancy villa nor is it fussy it’s just a really nice beach house to enjoy your holiday from.
The location was great on Grace Bay and we could easily walk on the beach to go out to eat or have drinks. It was very clean and had all the amenities we needed (cooking, laundry, BBQ etc). I really dislike the musty/humid smell most Caribbean accommodations seem to have and was SO pleasantly surprised that this place had none of that. I also didn’t see a single bug or critter in the house all week. The house is literally right on the beach and on calm days it was perfect for the kids to go swimming. On days that were a little windy we took the kids to Taylor Bay which was perfect for them (15 min drive away). Our group rented 2 cars and that was really handy. The IGA grocery store is a 5minute drive away and has a great selection. We felt very safe. Would love to go back! We booked the house through Villas of Distinction and had a really bad experience unfortunately. I doubt I’ll use them again. You can rent the house directly on trip advisor or through Tranquility in the Turks. Feel free to message me if you have any questions. Katie Pal
