The current owners of Osprey beach Hotel who oversee its operation on a year round basis are now desirous of more than the three months (or so) per year that ownership and seasoned local staff afford them. They now plan to retire to spend more time with family, especially Grand Children and to enjoy their other properties in Turks and Caicos Islands and visits to Providenciales and other islands in the “Beautiful by Nature” islands chain. They would be happy to consider a long “handover” period to future owners to ensure a smooth transition.
A recent insurance(draft) reinstatement cost assessment for the Osprey Beach Hotel property indicated a replacement value in the region of US$3.1 M excluding land, furniture and contents. This plus the value of the hotel business make the Osprey Beach Hotel a lucrative, cash generating investment proposition to someone seeking better than average return on investment and property appreciation. The investment becomes even more attractive for an owner/manager situation as is currently the case with this asset.
The property has an approximate gross external floor area (Buildings and main decks) of 22, 000 sq. ft. is well maintained and kept in excellent state of repair.The hotel property also lends itself to further expansion and increased capacity. Government of Turks and Caicos islands encourages inward investment and offers relatively more attractive incentives for investment in certain Islands, Grand Turk being one of them. There is therefore a real possibility for a new investor to negotiate a valuable package of incentives commensurate with his/her investment.
