Cinnamon Villa Testimonials

Definitely exceeded our expectations

Pelican’s Nest is a complete gem, and definitely exceeded our expectations. The home is really comfortable, with roomy bedrooms and great bathrooms. The kitchen is easy to use and very well stocked for cooking. The screened in porches are a nice touch with the air is still, and the bugs are out! The pool is perfect for dips and swims, and the kids in our group had hours of fun splashing around. And the beach is truly spectacular – a postcard in every photo! I’d highly recommend it for families and groups with kids.

Privacy and comfortable accommodation

Pelican Nest offered us everything we wanted from a three-generation family holiday house. Privacy and comfortable accommodation for everyone, a pool filled with floaties for the kids, access to the beach and the various island activities on Turks & Caicos, restful seclusion, but close enough to town to be convenient. The house was clean and is well managed. We were met at the airport and helped through the hire car pickup and check-in at the house all very efficiently. We’ve just returned home and are already discussing how soon we can get back there again.

Excellent Vacation!

Pelican Nest is the PERFECT place to stay in TCI. The home was immaculate, beautifully decorated, and the private beach was the best I’ve ever seen. The owner, Cathryn and her entire staff, Frisbert, Denise and Christina ALL made us feel welcome and very comfortable during our stay. The villa truly felt like our home away from home. You’ll find all the tools you’d need to cook your meals, and if that’s not your speed, there is a binder in the home with EVERYTHING you need to know about where to dine and the daily/nightly events that happen on the island — you won’t miss out on anything. Grocery store, restaurant, activities are all very close to the villa. Literally within minutes. I’d stay at Pelican Nest again without question.

I stayed at Cathryn’s Cinnamon villa

My family and I stayed at Cathryn’s Cinnamon villa for a week and we would strongly recommend it! The villa was able to offer something for all ages – whether you wanted to swim, stay in the shade, cook, or just relax. Cathryn was very responsive to our questions and we would very much like to return to her property the next time we are in TCI!

Great Experience!

Lovely unit, a bit from downtown. Staff were all very friendly. Has its own private beach but it’s a little bit of a walk. It’s not walking distance to downtown but they have two bikes available to use, however with groups of 6 you have to drive anywhere you want to go really. Also air conditioning is charged seperate and is very expensive however sleeping in immense humidity was not an option after one night, so we ran just at bedtime to morning and it was an additional $156. The house and private pool area were very nice.

Cocoa Villa Testimonials

Beautiful, peaceful home on incredible beach!

This was one of our favorite vacations ever! My husband and I were looking for a quiet, comfortable place to spend some time together and Pelican Nest delivered! This home is beautifully built with custom details – gorgeous hardwood doors and cabinets with unique hardware. Lots of comfortable furniture, well-appointed kitchen, excellent/terrace/deck/pool area. Only two minute walk to beach where you have your own lounge chairs waiting. One of the most important things – the bed was super comfy with great pillows. And it’s quiet here! No crazy resort crowds. Cathryn and Denise were super helpful and friendly. Any questions are answered quickly. We have travelled all over the Caribbean for 30 years – this place is awesome!

Gorgeous Turks and Caicos

Upon arriving at the airport Denise met our family and followed us to our rental car pickup and then on to our rental for the week. Very beautiful home – peaceful, quiet, very roomy and modernly furnished. Two large bedrooms upstairs and large bedroom downstairs poolside. The beach just a short walk from the house, leading to one of the most gorgeous beaches on the island. Snorkeling was perfect here, my son and I saw starfish, large grouper and snapper, and a sea turtle. Water is very calm here. Catherine and Denise are very hospitable. This Island is a beaut with the different shades of blue at each beach location. This is definitely a true paradise. Thank you again! Amy and family!!

This was a fantastic place to stay!

The property is beautiful and very well maintained. The caretaker of the property did an amazing job with keeping the pool clean and the grounds maintained during our stay. Cathryn who lives next door was so sweet and friendly and took the time to meet with us during our stay. Every morning our chairs were placed on the beach for us to just show up and relax. The location was perfect and relaxing. Definitely a return trip in our future!

We loved our recent stay at Pelican Nest! 5 adults, 2 kids (one under 2); the pool was perfect after a long morning at the beach, and the Villa was very modern and spacious. The house was just a short walk away to a private setting on the most beautiful beach, complete with our own set of palm trees and chairs.Grocery store is a short 5 minute drive away, along with some light shopping. Cathryn and her team were very accommodating and responsive, and the villa was really complete with all the core essentials. We can’t wait to book our next trip!

Perfect Beach Villa in Paradise

We absolutely loved the Cocoa Villa – Pelican Nest on Grace Bay. The location was perfect. It is either a 5 min walk to the beach from the house or a 1 min car drive. Our beach was by far the very best on the island. The sunsets were spectacular! Beautiful / calm waters. Beach chairs were provided on the beach every day. The house itself was wonderful! It was very spacious – 3 bedrooms/3 and half baths. There were four in our party so we had plenty of room; however, you would be comfortable with 6-8 guests easily. The pool was refreshing. The lanai was great with numerous chairs, tables, couches, and hammocks. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need. The house provided extra beach chairs and a cooler if you decided to visit other beaches around the island. Cathryn the owner was very helpful in answering questions before we arrived regarding the house and recommendations for all activities. Plus her arrival package provided a great deal of helpful information. From the minute we arrived, it was a smooth check in process. There was someone waiting at the airport to take us to the house who showed us all of the house and how everything worked. Then Cathryn came by to check in on us several times. Everyone was very helpful and so accommodating. We did have a slight issue with the upstairs AC (it had just been upgraded); however, Cathryn was quick to immediately have workers come to fix the issue. It was resolved and did not impact our vacation. We felt very safe and comfortable on the property. There is also a safe in the upstairs bedroom if needed. I can’t say enough great things about this property – we loved it!! It’s perfect both for families with children or adults only. I highly recommend renting this property – it’s paradise in the Turks and Caicos! We will definitely be back and rent this property again! Thanks Cathryn for an amazing vacation!
