Damian and his wife Xiomara were excellent hosts. They were very accommodating in all of our interactions. We were there during Christmas, and they were thoughtful enough to provide us with a lovely Christmas Day lunch. Grand Turk is quiet with a small town feel, where everyone is friendly and welcoming. The breathtaking beaches are empty and the warm water is inviting. My favourite beach was Governors Beach, which provided me with the secluded paradise which I search for in my travels. The guesthouse is situated on Damian's property in a residential area. There is a little grocery store conveniently across the street. We spent a lot of time at the cruise center in their swimming pool. Our four year old has yet to forgive us for leaving Grand Turk. It is a lovely memory he won't soon forget.
This cottage is located in town but a short walk to the beach. there is a supermarket very near so that was convenient. The room had everything I needed as was very pleasant to be in. I was working so was out of the house most of the time. It was nice to not be at a bigger hotel.
Damian and his family are great hosts and also run a fishing charter. They have been there forever and have so many connections to help you out with. They were very helpful to me and I enjoyed hanging out with him.
Place was good for the price. It was a few blocks off the main drag right across from a store which was nice. Bikes were a bit old but they made all the difference in getting around. It was really nice to be able to bike everywhere. Most places were 5 mins away. Unit was very clean and had everything. The best part was probably the bed. After the first place we were at the bed was terrible this one had a thick memory foam on it. Really helped. Damian picked us up and dropped us off which was really nice. It was a great option for divers that are out a lot and just was a place to crash. It did not really have any outdoor space and no view or anything so prob not going to hand out there all day (which was fine with us). The internet went out a fair amount but Damian was very responsive to every issue. For the price it was a great option.

I traveled solo and Screaming Reels was the perfect choice for my stay. I was looking for a quiet get away and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I had travel delays from Atlanta that caused me to arrive a day later than booked and Captain Damian was very understanding and rearranged important matters to pick me up at the airport, which was way above and beyond what I expected! The guest house is clean and comfortable with easy access to everything. Bicycles are provided but I opted to walk about the island to explore. Stunning beaches and outstanding dining options are a comfortable stroll away, but if you prefer, the kitchen is stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. Keep in mind, this is not a fancy, touristy, hotel. It is situated in a neighborhood with a small market located conveniently across the street. The local folks are warm and friendly. Captain Damian is a fantastic, accommodating host. It is perfect for a quiet get away for a couple or small family. I am looking forward to returning to Screaming Reels and maybe a fishing tour with Captain Damian.

My brother and I traveled to Grand Turk to scuba dive, and we found Screaming Reels Guest House on TripAdvisor. It had awesome ratings and was very affordable, so we booked it. It was everything we read about. It truly is an awesome place to stay if you are visiting this beautiful Island. The Guest House is clean, a good size, in a good location, and comes with access to two bikes- that was the best part for us! We rode around the Island and explored all GT had to offer. We would highly recommend this place. Damien and his wife are so friendly, welcoming, and kind! We had a great time, and if/when we return to GT, we would stay in this Guest House again over any hotel on the Island.
