Turtle Cove apartment description
Are you looking for an affordable, convenient and pretty vacation spot on Providenciales?
Welcome to Villa Daisanadu, a central, breezy, hilltop location overlooking Turtle Cove Marina and the Atlantic Ocean. This entirely self-contained one bedroom apartment occupies the lower level of our home in Providenciales. Amenities include spacious bedroom with king-sized bed and a/c, living room with LCD TV, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and private laundry room. The large deck, with it's sweeping views, is designed for your relaxation and privacy. Cable and wi-fi are provided for your convenience.
With it's native vegetation and xeriscaping, our 2-acre garden boasts some of the island's oldest and most beautiful Lignum Vitae trees, many of them over 500 years old. It has been photographed by the Turks & Caicos National Trust, scouted as a location for numerous photo shoots, and featured on an international website.
The house is a short walk (less than 2 minutes, all downhill)to the many restaurants and bars of Turtle Cove, yet is private and quiet. A little farther away, but still within easy walking distance (less than 10 minutes), begins the western end of world-famous Grace Bay beach and the great snorkeling of Smith's Reef. With the Marina right at the doorstep, the spot is ideal for people wishing to dive, deep sea fish or just take one of the many excursions that leave from the dock.
Turtle Cove is the perfect location for your holiday. Situated more or less in the middle of Providenciales, it's a great spot to easily access the numerous sights of the island. There are 5 restaurants, 2 dive operators, 2 fishing charters, and 2 snorkeling charters located right in the Marina! A bike, scooter and car rental shop is also on-site, should you decide to explore other parts of the island. A gym and tennis court lie just across the road. IGA, the main grocery store, is 1.6 miles away. The airport is 4.5 miles (a $15 cab ride) away. The ferry to North Caicos is a 15 minute drive.
Feel free to contact us for additional photos or with any questions you may have.

Location and patio awesomeness! Loved it!
Location and patio awesomeness! Loved it!
Great place, if it’s available the days you’ll be in Provo, jump on it! Daisanadu is an awesome find, and Barb is great! I will second everything positive that has already been said. The private deck is huge and beautiful! We packed coffee, bagels and wine in our checked bags and spent a lot of time on the porch for breakfast and post dinner drinks! The view is just like the pictures – none of this “crane your neck and look left” the way hotels describe an ocean view sometimes ;) You really do have a great view from the whole deck as well as all the screened windows in the apartment! A few things that haven’t been touched on as much in some earlier reviews and might be good to know- the bathroom is huge! Tons of space there – which to be honest is more important to me than the kitchen (which was much more space than I anticipated, and more than sufficient for our needs). All sorts of water-fun in the closet – water noodles, snorkel mask, beach umbrella, chairs… everything you need and towels for the beach too. Made packing easy! The clothes-line is super-handy to have– so many places I end up just tossing my wet swimsuit on a chair to dry as best it could, here I could hang out my suit over lunch and it would be dry for afternoon beach time. Much appreciated! As for location, I’m a runner so brought my Garmin. The distances to the beaches are just as close as described. From the driveway to Turtle Cove, I clocked 0.17 mi – and there are sidewalks on the Suzy Turn road, so very easy and safe to get there. It’s a super quick walk. The sidewalks continue all the way to Grace Bay and well beyond – we drove many times, and also ran it, there are entrances to the beach about a half mile from the house and pretty often thereafter – the “official Grace Bay sign” is right under a mile from the house. We actually liked the first and second access points near the apt better – fewer people since you’re a smidge down the beach from all the resorts. Very easy to get to the beaches via sidewalk if you prefer to walk there and work off some of the calories in all the awesome island food :) We’re the types that, when we’re on an island, we want to see all the beaches, so the Turtle Cove location was great in that you can get to all the different parts from a mid-point very quickly! This location was wonderful – you feel totally secluded, but you’re so very close to everything. I adored it! Highly recommeded!

The villa was just as promised! Barb was a delightful hostess! The view was beautiful! This location was perfect...in a nice, safe marina area. We were able to run in the mornings, walk to restaurants and local events. We enjoyed our two full weeks of complete relaxation!! The accomodations were clean and comfortable and the price was affordable...an excellent combination and we WILL be back to visit this VRBO villa again!! I highly recommend! Thanks Barb! ~your new friends from Texas

Relaxation...Guest comment entered by owner
What a wonderful trip! From the first inquiry about Villa Daisanadu, Barb was so helpful, friendly, and full of life! The renting and check-in process was so quick/easy. The villa was beautifully decorated, it is the perfect size for two people that want pure relaxation! My favorite was sitting in the comfy king size bed looking out at the amazing view!! There is also a storage room with all the beach supplies you may need: Umbrella (needed that after we got burnt the first sunny day), beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach balls, etc. We were so thankful for those beach items!! The location was perfect for us, it was close to all the great beaches, snorkeling, and turtle cove marina for a quick happy hour :) My husband and I cannot wait to plan our next trip to Villa Daisanadu. Thank you Barb for providing such a wonderful villa that is so inviting and relaxing. It really felt like home :)

Paradise in Turtle Cove
This was my third visit to Villa Daisanadu. I love the location. It's close to the beach, the grocery store, the Wine Cellar, restaurants and bars but not too close to the touristy area of Grace Bay if you like your privacy. At the same time, you can get to the trendy shops and restaurants in Grace Bay in about 5 minutes or so if you like. The closest beach has Smith's Reef to snorkel right off shore - no charge!! If you like to snorkel, this is a great place to go. Snorkel as often as you want for as long as you want! My favorite things about the villa are the comfortable king bed and the huge deck along with the view. It's totally private and extremely clean. You can't beat the price. It is truly a bargain.

Love It!Guest comment entered by owner
This was our third visit to Daisanadu. Barb has designed a lovely apartment with garden surroundings overlooking the marina and the beautiful atlantic. You will immediately feel at home and at peace. The deck alone is worth the price of the stay. It's like a magnet - it's sometimes hard to leave and go to the beach. We eat many meals on the deck and often come back from the beach during the heat of the day just so we can enjoy the breezes and take a nap. Barb will kindly help with any request - directions, suggestions, trash bags, etc. Likewise, Dolly and Butter will visit if encouraged, and enjoy playing with the tennis ball. For dog-people, they add definite charm to the property. The apartment itself is totally perfect for 2 people. You get plenty of towels - for both the bath and the beach. The bathroom has a large vanity with plenty of storage space and there is always hot water. The bedroom is large and the bed is perfectly placed for the view. The king bed is comfortable and extra linens are available if needed. The kitchen has the plates, bowls, silverware, glasses, pots, pans, etc., you might need to cook and enjoy island meals. We mostly do simple things like spaghetti and rotisserie chicken from the IGa - because, really, who wants to spend time cleaning the kitchen when you could be on the deck or the beach?! The location in Turtle Cove is excellent and convenient for going all over the island if you have a rental car. It's also convenient for walking to several nearby restaurants at the marina and Scooter Bob's car rental.

Villa Daisanadu was a charming and beautiful havenGuest comment entered by owner
Villa Daisanadu was a charming and beautiful haven
The Villa itself is well-located with easy access to both the Leeward Highway and the Lower Bight Road. We found our way there from the airport with no difficulty and it was an easy drive to all of the beaches/activities on the island. A rental car is a must, not so much because of the Villa's location but because the island itself is fairly large and the amenities, including shopping districts and beaches, are quite spread out. My daughter and I loved the setting: the view over Turtle Cove really is lovely, the gardens are pretty and the geckos are numerous. The apartment is quite spacious with its own verandah and patio, and we found it to be very comfortable for the two of us. The interior is designed to welcome and encourage relaxation, with lots of attractive personal touches that make it feel like a home away from home. Barb has clearly taken the time to create a cosy and welcoming spot. There were loads of towels in the bathroom, extra sheets and covers in the bedroom, etc. We really appreciated the complimentary snorkels/masks/fins and visitor information provided by Barb. The kitchen was fully functional, which was a high priority for us: we cooked almost all of our meals at the apartment due to my daughter's numerous food allergies. One of the very few improvements I would suggest is a sprucing-up of the wall cabinet interiors and that only because we have to be so careful of food residues. We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Daisanadu. Some of the things that really stood out for us were: Dolly and Butter (so sweet!), Barb (so relaxed and welcoming!), the geckos, the beautiful tilework in the bathroom, the a/C (!!), the fridge (cold drinks, popsicles), the towels and the glass fish in the kitchen window. Our stay at the Villa Daisanadu helped us to feel as though we belonged, even though we were only there for a week. Thanks very much Barb!

You Won't Be Disappointed.
We spent a lovely extended Easter weekend at Daisanadu in Provo! Barb was super helpful in the weeks leading up to our stay and for periodic check-ins when we were there. The house has a lovely cottage charm with - yes - a million-dollar view. The apartment is bright, quiet, and clean with lots of modern furnishings. The bedroom was white and peaceful with breezy billowing curtains. We didn't end up cooking much - but the kitchen was fully stocked with equipment, dishes and condiments. The house is located in the hills behind the Turtle Cove marina - which is behind a row of beautiful beach mansions. The neighbourhood is impressive and convenient and we felt completely safe. We had never been to Provo before but we brought our own coffee and spent the morning lazily waking up to the view on the porch sprawled out on a super comfortable day bed (which I miss!). My partner is anxious around dogs and it was not a problem, they stayed upstairs. The house is a 1 minute drive and 5 minute walk from the marina where all tours will pick you up by bus or boat. There is also the Tiki Hut and Sharkbite for cheaper fare (and Turk's head on tap!). Daisanadu is just up the road from a few public access beach roads and some pretty stunning resorts. We went to the community fish fry on the Wednesday night (good mix of locals and tourists) on the public beach nearby. We rented a car for our full time there after asking about bikes and reading about cycling in provo. It's dangerous unless you are just interested in short jaunts up and down the beach road. Cycling on Leeward is out of the question. A lot of roads are still gravel, so even in a Honda fit, we at times could have used more traction. It was nice to have a car and travel around - even if to the IGA or wine cellar. The weather was kind of windy and chilly when we were there and we were happy to have the house to rest at away from the beach - we spent a day there lounging and napping! Pure bliss. It was super convenient to have the cell phone to book snorkelling tours etc. If your looking for a peaceful retreat a bit away from the action but with everything you need close by - you won't be dissapointed!!

"Best location...so many shades of blue!"
After exploring Provo and the two sister islands, my wife and I decided that this is the perfect location. Ten minutes fm the airport, but you don't know it's there. You can easily get to the pricey hotels for lunch and dinner, or kick back and eat in. After a long day at the beach, this is a wonderful retreat away from the crowds. Started each day on the deck watching the sun come up with coffee, ended the day in the same place with a glass of wine. Don't over pack...shorts and flip flops will do nicely!

Loved Villa Daisanadu, Turtle Cove, CaicosGuest comment entered by owner
Loved Villa Daisanadu, Turtle Cove, Caicos
My husband and I spent 8 nights here and the description is very accurate. We had everything we needed: large bedroom with firm bed, bedside lamps, AC, big screened windows for the cross breeze and total privacy. The large shaded porch with comfy furniture was well used for morning coffee and evening reading, and the kitchen had everything we needed for breakfast (we ate out later in the day). The living area is smallish but we weren't in there much. The wifi was appreciated...island maps are vague so we looked up directions to most places in Caicos. We had all the privacy we needed...it's very quiet there and we never felt like we were part of another household. If we needed to ask a question, though, Barb was there with answers and books. We like being up the hill above Turtle Cove; this location is central to everything, but a vehicle is a must. We rented a 4 wheel drive from avis right at the airport (very accomodating staff and good car) and Barb provided directions to the apartment so it was no sweat. Our favorite places to snorkel were Smith Reef off of Suzy Turn, Bight Reef found at the end of the shared drive with the Coral Gardens resort (also home to Somwhere Cafe) and on the outer reef during our Sail Prove 1/2 day trip to Little Water Cay to see the iguanas (so amazing and very photogenic) and to snorkel. Our favorite casual restaurant was Somewhere (pulled pork quesadilla and BBQ pork sandwich outstanding), fav coffee shop the Green Bean, tour of the Conch Farm was very interesting (weird creatures!) and we bought conch shells from the guy at the beach by Da Conch Shack that have a hole tapped into the end so they can be blown like a trumpet...too cool!!! We will be back to the villa and Caicos as soon as we can!

This was the third year in a row that we stayed at Daisanadu. And we have already reserved for next year. That should be enough of a review right there! It certainly lets you know we are satisfied!

About the owner: We have lived on the island for almost 10 years, and love to share our recommendations with our visitors.
Why the Owner Chose Turtle Cove:
We fell in love with the house when we first saw it in 2002 and bought it a year later. Designed by well-known architect Jeff Lee of Lee & Astwood Architects, it is perfectly situated to take in the beautiful ocean views and the comings and goings in Turtle Cove Marina. The apartment is used through winter as a guest suite for our many friends and relatives who visit. When we don't have guests staying with us, we rent the apartment out on a short-term basis.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Save your $$$$. An affordable alternative to staying in the more expensive hotel district. You still get the benefits of the beach, without the crowds and cost. Turtle Cove has a small town feel and everything you need is really close by. All the money you save can be used for umbrella drinks.
