The perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I were looking for something very easy and relaxing and this house was perfect for that. It was so close to the beach, which was absolutely stunning. It almost felt like your own private beach. Also, the location was ideal. It was close to town and literally 20 min bike ride away. We really enjoyed the bikes that the house offered. It was a his and her. :) We will cherish our time here fondly.

Ruined vacation. Horrible rental. Stay away!

  • 1 of 5
My son and I arrived at the cottage on July 1st, 2014. It became immediately obvious to both of us that the rental was falsely advertised. We came across:

1. Complete misrepresentation of the rental unit.
2. Fraud.
3. Absolutely anti-sanitary conditions including health-hazardous mold all-over the house and leaking water/urine from the broken toilet (the property manager refused to send anyone to fix it).

The pictures you see here have nothing in common with what you are about to face in reality.
Bed linens were covered with blood and rust. Air-Conditioning unit is installed only in one room above the main bed which is absolutely not enough to keep the whole cottage at the comfortable temperature level. All appliances (kitchen, bathroom, bedroom vanity) are 25 years old, very dirty and extremely unattractive. Kitchen sink is exceptionally dirty, rusty and old. Refrigerator is covered with dirt and rust. Its handle is sticky and you don’t want to even touch it. The floors are covered with dirt and mold. Shower curtain is covered with black mold. Cabinets are covered with black mold and food stains. Beds are very uncomfortable. Mattress on the main bed is stuffed with something resembling hay. There is NO Internet (wi-fi) in the cottage. TV is small and functions very poorly. Beach supplies (chairs, umbrella, etc.) are broken, dirty and rusty – dangerous and unsafe to use. The whole cottage is very dark inside. It is over 25 years of age and has never been upgraded or remolded since it was first built. The house if full of mosquitoes (which makes the stay in the house additionally uncomfortable).

The cottage is totally mispriced. The listed price is ridiculously high. We visited villas around the island that are rented for exactly same amount of money. They are in pristine condition, sparkly clean, brand-new, beautifully decorated and have a POOL!
We were supposed to stay for 2 weeks in this rental. But after experiencing the conditions of the cottage we decided to stay there for only one week - just for the beautiful sea.
We gave a phone call to the owner the same evening we arrived at the cottage. She appeared to be very surprised and annoyed with our complaints. She was NOT helpful at all. The property manager was rude as well.
Unfortunately, the travelers are not given the option to post their photos of the rentals here. I have plenty of pictures that prove every single word that I’ve written here. Please, stay away from it!

Owner's Response: Your review of our property, constitutes a misrepresentation of the facts.
The issues you previously raised with me were: A stained sheet (it has been removed)- A tiny stain on the underside of a duvet cover (cleaned) - discoloration of the kitchen sink, and the pipe behind the toilet (cleaned) - A toilet leak (checked by our plumber). You stated that we have a mould issue. These communications are documented in our email thread.
Our property is a beach cottage, in the style of the old Caribbean. It is clean and comfortable. The appliances are older, but function well. The property is a private family cottage. We have stayed here many times with our children. They have allergies, and I have environmental sensitivities. There is no mould problem. We would never knowingly expose anyone to unsafe conditions. Your comment about the bed in the Master bedroom is untrue. There is a foam mattress on this bed.
Since purchasing the cottage, we have done a number of upgrades. All linens, window coverings, glassware and dishes have been replaced. Most of the interior has been repainted. A sofa, side tables, lighting fixtures and soft furnishings have been purchased.
I worked hard on your reservation. You changed your details three times, and I rewrote and re-sent your contract twice. I addressed all your questions in a timely fashion. In the humid Summer months, there are more mosquitoes. Specific procedures (keep the screen door closed), are outlined in our Guest Guide. A copy of this guide was sent to you well in advance.
Late on the evening of your first day, you phoned our home. You communicated a litany of issues. I indicated that I would contact my property manager, and that we would try to sort things out. She checked on you the next morning. You demanded services that we don't offer. Though outside of her assigned duties, she drove you to a local attraction, offered to take you grocery shopping, and arranged a discounted excursion. You hounded her at work and harassed her co-workers. Before your departure, you demanded that I 'order' her to drive you to the airport. I refused this request.
Upon your departure, a property inspection was done. You left it in an unkempt state. This required two days of cleaning.

Vacance en famille

  • 4 of 5
Nous avons passé dix jours de rêve en famille avec notre petit garçon de deux ans. La maison est très bien équipé, super propre, confortable. Nous avons vraiment apprécié la douche extérieur, un pur plaisir à chaque matin.
La cour est clôturé, donc parfait pour des enfants en bas âge. Bien penser à amener du chasse moustique, il y en a beaucoup en fin de journée. La plage est à quelques minutes à pied et très calme.
La maison est situé dans un coin vraiment tranquille et à cinq minutes en auto d'un supermarket et des magasins.

Nous y retournerions sans hésiter. Nous nous sommes senti comme à la maison. La seule chose qui pourrais être ajouter c'est un bbq.

Merci Ruth d'avoir pris le temps de répondre à nos questions :)

March Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
For a family of 4 who enjoy a relaxed cottage atmosphere, this was rather idyllic. Quiet, safe, clean, and extremely enjoyable. There was no down side to staying here.

A wonderful place for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We planned our family holiday at the Artemis Retreat and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The place was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our one week stay. There was plenty of room for our family of four and was a great home base for exploring the beaches, activities or just hanging out with the kids (2 and 5 years old). It's in a nice and quite neighbourhood and away from the resorts and crowds but an easy drive to pretty much anything.
Ruth (owner) was a great help answering our questions and even organized some sand toys for the place before our arrival. The property manager (Olga) was also very helpful and made sure we were comfortable.
We would definitely recommend this cottage and stay here again if (or should that be when) we go back to TCI.

A couple of notes, especially for those with younger kids looking to stay here: The closer beach access if ok if the tide is out. If you walk up a bit (past the new developments) there is a wonderful beach that is great for shells. If the tide is in, it's not very safe. We really appreciated the music player (worked with my ipod and entertained the kids) but a BBQ would be a great addition to the place ; )

Tranquil Cottage, 2 Mins From Deserted Beach

  • 4 of 5
If you like cutting edge condo developments, this is not for you. If you are looking for a place to relax in quiet, beautiful surroundings off the beaten track, you should book Artemis Resort. It feels like someone's home, made with love, not an impersonal apartment bought to rent out to holiday makers. A typical Caribbean cottaged, with cathedral ceiling in the main room plus a beautiful verandah, an outdoor shower - and 2 cycles are part of the deal. Shops, restaurants and the nearest public access wi-fi are a 15 minute cycle (or a 5 minute car ride) away.

Ruth was a pleasure to do business with and very helpful when it comes to providing new sharp knives for the kitchen. The hammocks and beach chairs need upgrading but, overall, a fantastic holiday in a great location.

Location

Activity and Interests

With only few minutes stroll to the ocean, you will be tempted to spend lots of time swimming in turquoise warm water and to take long walks barefoot on pristine Grace Bay Beach.

If you like adventure, local activities include para-sailing, kite-boarding, scuba diving, snorkeling or kayaking to nearby islands.

All attractions such as marina, restaurants, shops, casino, tennis and golf course are within few minutes drive.
