Our group of 6 (2 couples and 2 kids) stayed at Ryder Retreat for 10 days. While the pictures were beautiful, the reality was even better than we expected. The house had plenty of room for all of us so we never felt crowded. Everything was clean and the house was well stocked with kitchen amenities, sheets and towels. Opening the windows and sliding doors provided excellent airflow during the day and the ceiling fans and windows kept the bedrooms comfortable at night, we never needed the air conditioning. We were pleasantly surprised that the pool was larger and deeper than it appears in the pictures. We enjoyed lounging on the patio and cooling off in the pool when we were not out sightseeing and exploring the island's beaches and restaurants. The house is not on the beach but it's just a quick drive to Long Bay. While we were there it was very calm; perfect floating conditions.
Lorri, the owner, was always accessible and pleasant to deal with. Shawn, the caretaker, met us at the airport and waited with us while we sorted out a snafu at the rental car company. He got us situated at the house and came back a few times during our stay to check up on us and remove the trash. He was always a pleasure.
We would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to friends. We had a fantastic stay at Ryder Retreat. Thank you Lorri and Brian,
Ciara, Bryan, Dave, Tiffany, Logan and Ohwen
Are you kidding me?? What is not to love about this place??!! Our first adventure on the beautiful islands of Turks & Caicos couldn't have been more perfect. The "Ryder Retreat" was our home-away-from-home, and this property was everything we needed and much more. This "upside-down" house (meaning the living and kitchen areas are on the second floor to maximize the views) is beautifully decorated in Caribbean colors and furnishings, and immaculately clean. The first floor bedrooms flank a tiled hallway with access directly to the pool/patio area, and have both a Jack-and-Jill bath as well as another hallway bath and laundry room. The upper level living room/kitchen has an open, airy feel with a deck that overlooks the waters of Long Bay and the tropically landscaped property with pool, hot tub, and pool house-exercise building. The owners are wonderful to work with and have arranged caretakers for upkeep of the house, pool, landscaping, etc. so we felt very safe and attended to (not to mention if any of them were around they were SUPER friendly)!! Every detail was considered to make us feel comfortable and welcome. This house is not directly on the beach, but a short drive to several beaches on all sides of the island. After spending some time along the busy streets and beach of Grace Bay, we were glad to escape back to our own private, quiet paradise. Car rental is needed to access all the great places this island has to offer. Although we had never had to drive on the "opposite" side of the road before this trip, we were pleasantly surprised at how easily we adapted, and we had absolutely no difficulties...so get a car and GO! Unlike many of the other islands we have been to, this island felt very safe, and we explored many places. Some of our favorites were: Leeward Beach, Coral Gardens/Bight Reef (great snorkeling right from the beach!!), Long Bay Beach to watch kite boarders, da Conch Shack (GREAT conch fritters!), Boogaloo's, Coco Bistro, and Opus. Also toured the Conch Farms and took the ferry to North & Middle Caicos. If you rent this property, you'll feel like you are a homeowner here, rather than just a tourist renting out a hotel room! We hope to return soon. Enjoy!
We stayed for a week at this house in Long Bay on our first trip to the Turks. The house was spotless and beautiful, with all the amenities we would need. There was suggestions of places to go and eat in an organized notebook that welcomed us. The house is private, has a pool and also has ocean views which makes this place perfect for families. The house is also minutes away from beautiful beaches and restaurants so we could explore all that Turks has to offer. This was our best vacation ever! I cannot wait to go again!
