Pirates Hideaway and Blackbeard's Quarters Review
Owner Candy Herwin—true to her self-proclaimed pirate status—has smuggled artistic treasures across the ocean and created her own masterpieces to deck out this lair. Quirkily decorated rooms show her original style and sense of humor. Butterfly and Hummingbird suites have private baths and additional kitchens; the Sunset Room is a full apartment with separate entrance on the second floor with ocean views; Blackbeard's Quarters is a four-bedroom cottage with rooms suitable for bigger families or groups of friends staying together. There's a grill you can use and Wi-Fi, and this is the only place on the island with satellite flat-screen TVs. If you love eclectic and artistic surroundings—and want to meet a true pirate queen—this could well be your perfect hideaway. A freshwater pool in a tropical garden with a kiddies section is also available, and you can rent golf carts from Candy to drive around the island. Candy can meet you at the airport, give you a tour of the island, and have the refrigerator stocked. She also operates the twice-weekly ferry to Grand Turk and can set up whale-watching tours in season.
