This was our second stay at Cinnamon Villa. It was just as wonderful as we remembered with some great improvements. Cathryn is a great owner and Denise is great as well. We absolutely love this island and Cathryn's spot. It is the best beach on the island and the addition of the coconut palms at the beach were so nice. We can't wait to come back. This time we won't wait 7 years!!
We are repeat and long-term visitors that come back to Pelican Nest for a great experience that we can count on year after year. We usually take the Cocoa Villa but have stayed in the Cinnamon Villa before as well. The villa is always well maintained, with friendly, helpful and receptive staff. The owner, groundskeeper and housekeeper are always in a good mood and happy to speak with us. Pool area is spacious and great for al fresco dining / entertaining family and friends. The bedrooms are also spacious, clean and well maintained. The amenities provided for cooking (pots + utensils + BBQ) are great if you prefer to cook yourself, which we do a lot of the time. Good AC, but we mostly only use it at night, and find that leaving the windows open in the day works great for us. We prepare for bugs and bring plenty of repellent, but find that this is an island-wide problem, and not something particular to the villa itself. The surrounding area is nice and quiet. The location of the villa is great, as you are close to the beach and the nearest supermarket is a short drive away. You are also close to many of the restaurants. You are close to the beach and the beach itself is lovely. You are provided sun loungers and umbrellas, which is an added bonus. We love Pelican Nest and always look forward to coming back!
We stayed at Pelican Nest end Jan/early Feb (larger villa) and had a great time. We brought a 2 year old and 5 year old, along with grandma so the space was perfect. Pool is good for these age ranges as shallower at one end (younger one could enjoy) but big enough for the 5 year old to swim back and forth and practice her snorkeling! House manager gave us some helpful hints about practical aspects of T & C. Grill ran out of propane, and the team was very responsive about this. A quick 5 minute walk to the beach, and the beach was very quite. On windy days we went to the south side of the island as there are 2 beaches there that are shallow and good for little kids as well as protected from the wind. Not too far from grocery store/restaurants (we rented a car - much cheaper than taking taxis several times a week). Opened doors/windows during the day, but you do need to close these at night to avoid mosquitoes coming into the house. We enjoyed many a meal out on the patio!!! Also spacious enough that we had about 4 couples over for dinner one night (we were there for friends' destination wedding). Comfortable, relaxing!! Just what we were looking for in a villa!
Hi Cathryn, We just wanted to say thank you very much for letting us stay in your beautiful Villa. We absolutely loved everything about it! This was our 4th year in Turks and wished we would of stayed in your Villa the previous years. We look forward to seeing you next year. Thank you again! The Bowers and Piron Family
Hi Catherine, Just wanted to say hello. I have waited too long to send you a note. We rented your place back in October. It was awesome and we are planning a return visit. but not until next yr, unfortunately as everyone's schedule this year is full. I'm going to go to VRBO / TC safari and tripadvisor and comment on our stay and how wonderful everything was. All the best this year and thanks for everything. It was awesome. Cheers Steve, Linda, Gary, Kim, Lisa and Chris.
We just spent 10 days at Pelican Nest Villa #5 Feb 09. We have travelled to Prov many times before and this was by far our most enjoyable stay. The villa is beautifully furnished and decorated, a well stocked kitchen and lovely dining area allowed us to even entertain friends. I have never had a dinner party on vacation before! The bedrooms are well appointed, linens were new,clean and plentiful. The private pool and large deck area really expand your living space. I had to force myself to leave the villa property I was so comfortable! The property manager Linda is just a stone's throw away, and aims to please. Over all an exceptional experience. You can rent this lovely villa for the price of a one bedroom condo up the beach. Why would you? We will definitely return. Thanks Linda and Catharine
