We enjoyed our 12 night stay at The Charming House immensely, and it was the ideal home base for our daily explorations. The house, like Salt Cay itself, is utterly serene and Charles is the ultimate invisible host. Perhaps because he lives there himself for part of the year, the house feels nothing like a rental. It's more like being invited to stay at someone's very special home whilst they are away.
The kitchen is extremely well appointed. As we went in the off-season and were unsure of how many of the island's restaurants and grocery stores would be open, we brought quite a bit of food with us. You need next to nothing for clothing on Salt Cay, so we used quite a bit of the 50 lb luggage allowance per person for food. I am very glad we did, because fresh supplies are hard to come by on an island like this, and only one restaurant was open for business. We used Dickinson's grocery store for eggs, butter, milk (they understandably sell only shelf-stable milk), and some little goodies like peanut M&M's and Flav-O-Ice popsicles, but do not expect to find anything else fresh.
As promised, there are two bikes available for use, but as we are a family of 4 (two adults, two teenagers) we fully expected to have to rent a golf cart to get to places like the North Beach. Fortunately, we found a couple of older bikes in the shed which my husband managed to resurrect. Other reviewers had warned about frequent flat tires due to the rocky paths and thorns from the bushes that grow all over the island, so we tried to be mindful not to stray far from the main roads, and the bikes held up quite well.
Keens or Tevas are the ideal footwear for exploring the island - in and out of the water - especially for places like the South Creek.
Debbie, who manages the house and owns/runs the Dive Shop and Island Bistro, was invaluable, and Richard was a wonderful dive instructor for first time divers like us. Everyone that we encountered on the island was incredibly friendly, warm, and welcoming.
That said, Salt Cay is for explorers, adventurous spirits, nature lovers, and people who are willing to work a bit to uncover the island's treasures. Snorkeling, diving, beach combing, swimming, birds, donkeys, crystal clear waters, and STARS! If this is you, Salt Cay will blow your mind. It is not a good choice for anyone who needs the kind of holiday where everything comes to you and everything is easy. Stick to Provo for that.
This was our fourth stay at The Charming House. Why do we keep returning to this house? We love it. We love the location, away from it all. So peaceful. The vantage point from the veranda is spot on to enable you to watch north/south "traffic" while laying low. We stayed for five weeks this time around and enjoyed cooking "at home" most of the time. The new bikes were great to ride and we enjoyed walking and exploring the island time and time again. Can't wait to get back!
We just returned from a wonderful week in Charming House. This was our third time renting the house, and we were so happy to back. The house is breezy and spacious, with three bedrooms, a kitchen, a living/dining room, two full bathrooms and a study. The covered porch on the west-facing second floor is really another room, with comfortable chairs, ceiling fans and gorgeous views. Salt Cay is a magical island! It is peaceful and has the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. Groceries are limited, so we bring a fair amount of food along with us. You can buy fresh fish and conch down at the harbor. The kitchen has everything you will need for cooking just about any meal. The house is situated in the south district and the Atlantic side of the island is a few minutes' walk out the back door. Charles is very easy to work with and is responsive to any questions. The house manager Debbie is wonderful and always makes us feel very well looked after. We rent a golf cart from Debbie. There are also two new bikes available at the house. We will definitely stay here again and already are missing this terrific house.
It was even better the second time! Debbie was the best! And thanks Charles for the new bikes every one on the island wanted them. We had dinner at Debbie Christmas and half the island was there it was a great time and good food and drink! Charming House is the best on the island! I will always stay at Charming House it is like home
This house is so perfect. Salt Cay is mystical and beautiful and The Charming House amplifies the effect. Charles and Debbie make a great team. Charles owns the house. He's British. He wrote a spy novel. His vision in creating this space is completely realized. Debbie owns other rental houses, a seaside bar/restaurant called The Coral Reef, Salt Cay Divers...and who knows what else! You should patronize every one of her businesses; we are particularly big fans of the conch fritters, conch chowder and fish sandwich at the Coral Reef!
What is there to do on Salt Cay? You probably should figure that out on your own, but here are some basics:
1) Eat at Pat's. It's a block away. Set a spell.
2) See all of North Beach (duh) Explore Windmills Plantation.
3) If you like to hike, walk a couple of blocks east to the water and head all the way North. Swim in blowholes and little private coves. Bring rum punch.
4) Rent a golf cart for a day or two from the lovely Candy at Pirates Cove. If you are not a big fan of hikes, rent longer. We just needed one day.
5) Shop at Dickinson's Super Store. It's just a couple of blocks away and it has everything you need. (Well, alright, maybe you should bring a FEW groceries from Provo...Caicos Express let's you bring 50 pounds of luggage per person with no rules against rum...I mean, liquids)
Ok, that's a start.
The Charming House will be our first choice when we return to Salt Cay. We have two teenage daughters and we travel a lot. Everyone agreed that Salt Cay and The Charming House were......absolutely charming!
We are sad to say we are back home after three glorious weeks on Salt Cay. This was our 5th time on Salt Cay and our 3rd stay at the Charming House (our favorite place to stay). We will definitely be back for another go. We loved sitting on the veranda during the heat of the day and watching the slow relaxed pace of the island in front of us. The Charming House is close enough to everything (Salt Cay is a relatively small island) but far enough from the busy north district to keep it quiet and away from what little hustle and bustle there is. It's the perfect place to slow down, kick back and RELAX. And as mentioned in previous reviews, Debbie, the property manager, is a master at making sure all your questions are answered. We are looking forward to our next stay at Charming House!
