About Justine

Daphne and Pierrik, long time French residents, are the owners of the famed Le Bouchon Du Village Restaurant in Grace Bay and Rumeurs Boutique in Caicos Cafe Plaza. They searched high and low looking for the perfect home, combining privacy and beach living. And they found their jewel, nestled in the Leeward community. The couple added La Salamandre, a very private cottage on their land, so that they can share their oasis with visitors to these shores. As well, these eco enthusiasts founded a bird sanctuary on their estate. The most beloved of these, is a Mollucan Cockatoo name Oli. Children and adults visiting over the years, have come back time after time just to enjoy his antics.

Justine purchased this cottage in 1997

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We just wanted to thank you and your loving family for giving us one of the most memorable vacations we have had in a long time (at La Salamandre TCI). Your villa is outstanding, the private beach was the best on the whole island, and the dogs were amazing loyal companions. Our boat ride with your father was over the top! He really went out of his way for us.

We are rapidly spreading the word on what we truly thought was paradise. We are very grateful to have found such an amazing place. We will definitely be back!

Take care"....Lorraine and Ray A and Lori and Kim H

Private retreat

  • 4 of 5

This home in the Leeward Section of the island offers total privacy, including a beautiful private beach on the channel. All the furniture was replaced after the hurricane, as was the screening for the enclosed patio. And you will really appreciate that enclosed patio should the noseeums be out in the force in the evening. The small pool on the deck offers a cool reprieve from the heat.

The kitchen is well equipped and the beds, baths and furnishings were high end.

The owner lives next door and besides the local caretakers they are very unobtrusive. The property does come with three VERY friendly dogs who will want to hang out with you during your stay. To us this was a real treat! There are also two horses on the adjoining property which we barely noticed.

This property is a short ride to town, but I must say the roads in the Leeward section are in horrible shape. There is also a lot of construction taking place around the property, both new builds and hurricane repairs.

We found this property relaxing and had everything we were looking for. It was cleaned once during our ten day stay unless you make other arrangements.

Beautiful, relaxing, and equipped with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at La Salamandre with my parents. It was very comfortable and plenty of room for 2 couples. The property is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood on the beautiful Leeward beaches of the island, but you are pretty close to all the restaurants and shops in Grace Bay. We loved the sweet dogs on the property and were surprised how much time we spent on the amazing beach. We went to several beaches on the island and I think the one on the property was my favorite! It was stocked with everything you could need and we got good use out of the scrabble game during our stay. I highly recommend staying here!

La Salamander was our home away from home for 10 wonderful days!

  • 5 of 5

We just spend 10 wonderful days and nights at La Salamander! My husband, two children and I visited Turks and Caicos during spring break (March 2017). We wanted to escape the cold weather from home, spend time together as a family, go on adventures, and relax. We were able to accomplish all that during our stay at La Salamander! My children absolutely loved the animals. Each morning, as well as anytime we returned from an outing, they would greet the dogs, who were often waiting around our cottage. They would also visit the horse and try to find the chickens. What I loved most about the house was the privacy. My husband and I were able to read and relax while our daughters played in the pool. I especially loved the screened porch and covered cabana! The food in Turks & Caicos was absolutely delicious! Some of our favorite restaurants were Turks Kabob, The Caravel (their tacos were out of this world!), Bella Luna, Coco Van, Da Conch Shack, Bugaloos, Hemingways and Asu. We went ATV riding (with Froggies ATV tours), kayaking (with Big Blue), snorkeling (at Coral Gardens), took a self guided hike on Bird Rock Trail, visited the Conch Farm, and went on an all day tour to North and Middle Caicos (with Big Blue) where we visited a cotton plantation, a cave, and learned a lot about Turks and Caicos. Justine was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and adventures to try. Needless to say, we had a wonderful vacation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Salamander!

Our last day in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Preparing to leave La.Salamandre is difficult to say the least! The house is a Carribean dream. The ensuites are lovely, the kitchen area open and with everything you could possibly need, but the heavenly screened porch overlooking the pool and gazebo is where we really lived. The beach area just 30 seconds down a path leading to a private lounging area is heaven on earth.

I must mention our guardian angels, Leon, Beau and Lost - the most wonderful mutts in the world who eagerly greeted us, walked us to the beach (past the roosters and hens and Truper the horse) and were continually entertaining.

Our hosts were charming, helpful and responsive to our needs. The whole family was there and I must mention that they run the best restaurant in the area. The staff was wonderful - especially the housekeeper - a treasure.

Overall one of the best rentals ever!

Wonderful week at La Salamandre

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent a week at La Salamandre, and it's been pretty immediate to call it our home away from home!

The cottage was perfect for the 4 of us, beautifully decorated, clean and well-maintained. All the necessary amenities were right at your fingertips (thank you very much Justine for letting us have also 4 brand new beach chairs!).

We enjoyed a lot the screened outdoor patio, with two large tables for breakfast and dinner and two super comfy sofas. Pool is small but the area is so nice.

Bedrooms were spacious, both with walk-in closet and ensuite bathrooms (there were a lot of shower gel and shampoo samples). The kitchen has all the necessary appliances (even a Nespresso machine).

We haven't spent a lot of time on the (almost private)beach near the house because we chose to explore the island of Providenciales (renting a car is highly recommended). All the beaches are so beautiful (we especially loved Sapodilla Bay and Babalua).

The residential neighborhood is extremely quiet, you won't hear a single noise during the night.

We've also took the opportunity to do a half-day private boat ride with Justine's father, Pierrik (and then have a great dinner at his restaurant in Grace Bay, Le Bouchon du Village), which was amazing. The colors of the sea surrounding Providenciales were unbelievable.

We will recommend the property to anyone! Too bad our Paradise lasted one week only...
