Wanted to write a review but just realized that everything I was going to say has already been said! Haidee, Porter, Apol and Lolli are amazing hosts. They have been doing this a long time. Arrange golf cart prior to arrival... you'll need one to go back and forth between the restaurant and accommodation and for just touring around. The...

Thank you for visiting Salt Cay, the gem of of Salt Cay, and staying at Castaways and dining at Porter's Island Thyme. Our TEAM strives to create an experience not anticipated on an "out island" in the Turks & Caicos...a "cut above." Thanks again and we look forward to your return to Salt Cay!

We stay for a week, and spent the last 4 days alone in the area, out of the Filippino couple who was in charge of cleaning and cooking at Porter's. It is a bit far away from the village, but this is the best part of the story! You must rent a golf cart- the only motorized possibility- to move...

My husband and I traveled back in February 2016 and it has taken me this long to write a review because I truly feel that words cannot express the time that we had!

There are two buildings, each with two rooms. Our room had a comfortable bed, bathroom with shower, and basic kitchen with refrigerator, cooktop and convection oven. The rooms are designed to catch the ocean breezes (no AC). We loved breakfast on the big porch facing the ocean. Don’t be surprised if roaming donkeys come by looking for a handout. The...

I woke up the first day away from Castaway feeling like I'd just had the best dream. But our week there was all real and completely pleasant.

“We stayed in Crusoe #2 and I am sure that the others were just as nice.”

“Crusoe #2 is furthest away. We stayed in Shipwreck #1, perfect and quiet but less private than Crusoe #1 and 2.”
 of 5 bubbles mlsearles, 5 Feb 2016 | Read review
“Castaway is two houses with two units in each house. We lived in the most easterly one (Crusoe2) and that means a bit more shade from the pines. It also means more wind but that is usually good, because it is the wind that is the natural AC and it works very good.”

“All rooms are good”

“We stayed on both sides of the cottage. The last cottage is great for the cross breeze from the tradewinds. All rooms are great. Although there isn't air conditioning, it wasn't necessary. There is a constant breeze coming through.”
