About Kim

As an avid traveler who has visited over 70 countries, I rarely return to a vacation spot much preferring a new experience. But my husband and I fell in love with the Turks and Caicos in 2005 and have visited over and over since then as well as invested in properties with the hope to some day retire there.

We currently reside in Upstate New York with our rescue dog, Bella, a husky/lab mix. My husband is a small business owner, and I'm a retired Marketing Executive.

Kim purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kim chose The Bight Settlement

It was an easy decision to buy a vacation home on Grace Bay, the most beautiful beach in the world!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and Kims place. We were there for 10 days, rented a car the entire time. I recommend renting a car and not to depend on the resort for feeding you. They do tend to give preference to the all inclusives that vacation there, mainly buffet style which is not for me. I prefer to go to the different restaurants available on the island. It took us about 3 days to get used to getting around on the island so was glad to have spent the extra time I had there. Kims place is very comfortable and the room was clean. There is a nice Graceway Gourmet about a mile away for groceries and we were there a lot. The water is crystal clear in the ocean and is just amazing. The butler service was good on the beach and having umbrellas retrieve from the sun was nice. Kims porch was very relaxing. We even fell asleep lounging on her porch with the wind, was just so relaxing. Would love to come back, as no cruise ships come there so the beach was uncrowded and was for you to enjoy. We swam in the pool quite a bit and it was also very clean and relaxing. Thank You Kim and special thanks to Earlene for her help at checkin and checkout.

Great stay in Turks and Caicos!

  • 5 of 5

Kim's place was just what we needed for our vacation! We loved being so close to the beach with our own area with chairs and umbrellas. And while we never used the beach butlers (we opted to bring our own food and drinks to the beach) I saw many people who did and it was a nice amenity to have. We never visited the pool with such a beautiful beach only steps away! It had adequate room for the two of us and the bed was comfortable. The kitchenette had everything we needed to store groceries and we made our own breakfast and lunch most days. We used the washer and dryer a lot and found it very convenient to have that in our room. We did rent a car and were very glad we did as we drove pretty much everywhere. We had a small issue with the sink draining and called the property manager. She arrived promptly and fixed the problem. We would highly recommend Kim's place!

Great location and well equipped studio

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the location of this king studio on Grace Bay. Easy walking distance to the beach and other nearby resorts. The only downside was Alexandra Resort itself. Because it is an "all inclusive" resort where the guests are required to where wrist bands, those of us who were VRBO guests were not allowed to use the facilities. It was very difficult to get a drink or food at the bar and don't even try going to the restaurant. When we went to the front desk for clarification, we were told only all inclusive guests could use these amenities. We asked about using the pool and they said that was fine but we could not use the lounge chairs. Very disappointing. Other than that, everything was great and we met some great people in the VIP area on the beach.

Owner's Response: As mentioned in my listing and detailed in my Rental Agreement, not all amenities are available to VRBO guests but you get a great nightly rate in exchange for a few amenities. Sorry to hear that you had difficulties at the restaurant but hopefully you took advantage of the takeout services our beach butlers offer. They provide our guests with menus from restaurants/bars at the neighboring Palms and Sands and go pick up drinks and food for our VIP section to make up for the poor service at the resort. Even resort guests are giving the restaurant poor reviews. The Pavilion at the Sands offers our guests a VIP menu, Monday night happy hours and discounts aside from great food. For guests who enjoy a dip in the pool, I have two chaises on my patio for relaxing near the pool.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Everything we could have needed to enjoy our trip was there for us. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio to have our breakfast. The beach was a short walk away. We used the beach chairs and umbrellas in the VIP area and the resort has a nice place to eat outside on the beach. The island is just beautiful, with so much to do. The location of the condo made it easy to get anywhere with in a few minutes. We will absolutely come again. Thank you for letting us stay in your comfy place in paradise.

Sincerely,

Jennifer & Chet

Peaceful and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first trip to the Turks and Caicos and had a wonderful time! We didn't realize that when we went that busy season had just finished up, but it was perfect! Kim's place at the Alexandra Resort was exactly what we were looking for. It had all the conveniences we needed, but also was quiet and restful. We were able to walk just outside of our room to the pool and were only steps from the most beautiful ocean I have ever set foot in. The resort staff was very friendly and helpful when we had questions. It was also very nice of Kim to provide a phone for us to use for local calls for taxi service, etc. We had an amazing time and definitely did not want to leave! Highly recommend staying here....it was a perfect getaway for some rest and relaxation!

Very nice studio with a great location

  • 4 of 5

This unit is very well equipped. The shower has plenty of hot water and good water pressure and Kim has a nice selection of soaps, lotions, etc. I didn't use the kitchen other than the refrigerator, but that area is also well stocked. Large TV works well. Two snags: frequent power outages (three in the last 24 hours, including while I was showering and packing to leave), and the resort's management not treating the renters of individual units well (not wanting to call a cab and some resistance to seating at the restaurant). The studio does not have an ocean view, but the beach would be hard to see in any case, as it is lower than the surrounding shoreline. The beach in front of the resort is the nicest part of one of the best beaches in the world. Also, I had trouble with the local phone that Kim provides with the unit. I was only able to complete one call in five days. Every other call resulted in a message that the number I called was turned off or out of range. The restaurants at nearby resorts were friendlier, so I just barefooted it down the beach to them.

Owner's Response: Hi Drew, thank you for your review. So sorry you got caught in the Fortis Power upgrades that caused some outages that week. I hope you took advantage of the Pavilion restaurant a short walk down the beach. They've been very supportive of our VRBO guests, provide coupons to us, have great happy hours and specials and even deliver to our beach. My property manager checked the phone out and it's working so I"m not really sure why you weren't able to make calls. I hope you got the relaxing getaway you deserved!
