About judy crawford smith

Peter and I are Canadians from Toronto and Peter has resided in Turks and Caicos for 17 years.

judy crawford smith purchased this studio in 2000

Why judy crawford smith chose Grace Bay

This property bought in 2000 was purchased for its proximity to Grace Bay Beach and we have been in the same location all during the building of Windsong Resort and Reef Residences.

What makes this studio unique

Benefit is that the home is a 3 minute walk to Grace Bay beach, snorkeling, restaurants and bars, a walk to Fish Fry on thursday nights. Yet Tree house is quiet and set back from Stubbs road and provides quiet enjoyment for rest and relaxation.

It is quiet and breezy with lush vegetation but still close to all the fun places and things to do.

Perfect location & all the amenities you could need!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue but had it on my to do list. We stayed in the lower studio unit. There was plenty of towels, sundries and kitchen nook was perfectly sized. The convection cooker was very nice! There is also a washer/dryer on location. The owners were very friendly and around to ask questions if needed, but not in a way that was intrusive to your privacy. The studio is surrounded by trees and foliage that really helps with feeling like you're in a private oasis. The screened in porch was a perfect place to eat meals and hang out each evening. The A/C was crisp and worked great. Bed was comfortable and clean bedding. We walked to the beach a few times and even did some night snorkeling. The onsite pool was a nice change. There is also a hose for rinsing snorkeling/diving equipment. Plenty of parking and the building is a bit off the street so we didn't hear any traffic. I would recommend bringing ear plugs as some of the hotels near the beach play loud music. It's barely noticeable at the studio, but for those sensitive earplugs are great. The only recommendation I would have for the owner is to put black out curtains on the big sliding door. The security light is really bright in the room making it difficult to sleep. I would stay again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Aimee for the detailed and positive review. We appreciate the your taking time to send this in such detail. We would certainly be happy to have you return. Hurricane Irma did a lot of damage to the Island but we are almost back to normal and the vegetation is coming back more beautiful than ever. Tree House Apartment and Studio lost a few shingles but that is all. These older Provo homes withstand high winds very well. Thanks again Aimee. Judy

Great studio

  • 5 of 5

We found the studio located perfectly in the center of the island, few minute walking distance from beaches and Judy was very helpful!

The studio has lovely patio, clean with all amenities needed. If you are a kitesurfer you can wash off sands from your gear from the water hose near the pool.

This could possibly be the best rental on the island!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Tree House studio by the beach for the first week of April. It was one of the best vacations that we have had to date. Judy and Peter were amazing hosts and offered to take us to the IGA for groceries when we arrived. The studio is a two minute walk to the middle of Grace Bay Beach and has stunning views. We were never more than a 20 minute walk or a 20 minute drive to see the sites (including Taylor Bay)! The property is in great shape and very tranquil. We started our day having coffee on the porch and then going for a run to the Marina (a little over 7k in total). We then took a dip in the pool that was not huge however; it was almost 6 foot deep! At most there was another couple in the pool with us once and they were lovely people. We had lunch several times and dinner at "Somewhere Restaurant" on the beach and it was AWESOME!! Most mornings we cooked at the studio eggs and toast. We used the BBQ for cooking dinner once and it was perfect. If you are looking for a relaxing time the Studio is perfect. We did hear a dog one morning next door but after my wife opened the door and requested the dog quit, he quit within seconds and never did it again, (the neighbours must have taken him in right away). There are dogs all over Turks and caicos mainly for security. Judy and Peter have cameras and security systems which were a big help to make us feel comfortable, as sometimes there is crime. At no point did we feel uncomfortable here, except the one morning we woke up from having too much wine the night before at "Somewhere"! (Half price Wednesday's). We will definitely return to this property as long as Judy and Peter are there. Judy even drove us back to the airport :)

On a side note, if you want a place to simply party, there are plenty of resorts that cater to that. This is the place where you go to relax and get away from the chaos of the world!

Thanks Judy and Peter!

Perfect first stay in TCI!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the Treehouse. Judy and Peter could not have been more gracious hosts. The studio was perfectly shaded (we didn't need to use the A/C once) with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of beach supplies. And the screened-in porch was idyllic! This was our first time in Turks and Caicos and this location was sublime and safe: only 1 block (if that) to the beach...we couldn't have asked for an easier trek. With that said, we loved having a rental car to get to and from the IGA grocery store (though Judy kindly offered to give us a ride) as well as off-the-beaten-Grace-Bay path beaches. Five out of five stars! We're already scrutinizing when we can jet back! Thank you, Judy and Peter for a great intro to TCI!

I'd give -5 stars if I could

  • 1 of 5

We checked in to Judy's Treehouse Studio on Tuesday, intending to stay 8 nights. The apartments are located about 50 feet from Judy's house. The property is in OK shape but by no means anything exceptional. Immediately we were put off by amount of cameras on the property. There was one facing directly into our apartment from a tree right outside the porch! We found this odd and it made us very uncomfortable. Judy claimed "it only runs at night for security." We got the sense that it was always on, we did not have the feeling of privacy. The first day we went to the beach and returned to sit by the pool and look at the stars. The next day our friends arrived, whom were staying at a resort. We decided to hang out on our porch that evening and relax after the beach. Our two friends left by 930pm. The following day, Judy came to reprimand us for our bad behavior from the nights before (talking by the pool, talking on our porch after 8 pm. YES, TALKING!). Apparently there is a security system, made up of neighborhood dogs, whom we had offended with our conversations the nights before. These dogs barked for the majority of our two nights there, along with chickens who would scream intermittently, this happened even while no one was speaking, lovely! My wife got almost no sleep there due to the animals noise. Judy explained that, these trained dogs, would react to unfamiliar voices spoken after 8 o'clock, then trigger their owners who then call Judy to complain. We wondered why she would rent to unfamiliar people if this was the case, and why it had not been made clear to us that talking after 8 is forbidden. We were advised that we were not a "good fit" for the studio since we intended to talk by the pool or on our patio passed 8 pm. She was very rude to my wife and my guests. Particularly our friend Sandra, who just beat breast cancer and was with us to celebrate her survival. So rude that her husband and I had to bite our tongue very hard! We got the majority of our money back and went to one of the resorts. Moving, once we were all settled in, was a complete nuisance that affected the whole trip in a negative way. The short notice caused us to pay more than double what Judy had charged us, but it was money well spent to get away from this property. To be clear, my wife and I are in our late 30's. Our friends are in their late 40's. We were not drunk, loud high school or college kids, we were adults trying to respectfully enjoy our vacation. 👎�🏻�
