Villa Rosso di Sera is a spectacular retreat home in a Caribbean style with a Mediterranean feeling. Set on a ridge overlooking picturesque Taylor Bay on the ocean and iridescent Chalk Sound , it captures the ocean breezes which naturally flow through the entire house. It sits in lush tropical gardens surrounding an idyllic, private swimming pool with its spacious patios offering sun decks and outdoor dining.
Spacious living and dining areas are enhanced by a fully equipped kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and also has an adjacent wet bar that is a natural area for conversation.
The four well appointed luxurious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are situated to maximize unique views. All bedrooms have king size beds with two of them able to be separated into king singles. The bedrooms are spread over the three floors, allowing much privacy for a variety of accommodation
Designed and built by the owner who is a builder by profession, it is the result of studying Caribbean style for over 20 years. There are screened areas to dine and relax, a total of four places to dine in the house and around the pool. The upper floor has terraces with ocean views on three sides so there is always a right place to catch the breeze or take a nap. Nestled on one of the many porches is a double hammock for that necessary afternoon drift off!
The fully mature tropical landscaping provides a secluded feeling to the property, especially around the walled pool and generous deck area. The pool is 16 x 26' with an generous stair entry on one side that doubles as a conversation pit. The pool is 4'-6' deep which makes it very safe for children and adults but still allows for swimming lengths. The walls around the generous 2000 sf. pool deck makes the villa a very attractive setting for family gatherings and special events.
Attention to architectural detail is a hallmark throughout the house -the finishes are rustic and relaxed. Entirely trimmed out in Caribbean cedar inside and Western Red Cedar outside, the color palette is a mix of pale yellow, ocher and reddish browns that is soothing to the eye.
Other amenities include a private gym, a spacious hot tub, flat panel television in every room, Wi Fi throughout and kayaks. Guests have the use of private tennis courts nearby.
Above all, a short 2-3 minute walk brings you to secluded Taylor Bay Beach which rarely has more than a few people on it's entire half mile length. The water is usually quite warm as it is a protected lagoon and the fine white sand and shallow slope to the beach makes it especially appealing for young children and adults alike. The villa comes equipped with kayaks , beach chairs , beach umbrellas, coolers and snorkeling equipment, all of which enhance the beach experience.
The owners maintain a small guest house on one corner of the property that is strategically situated to ensure your privacy. When they are on island, they are there to be of any assistance as need be , but otherwise practice 'invisibility'

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My partner and I are fortunate to own Villa Rosso di Sera. We bought this enchanting Caribean home in mid 2015 from its original owner, an architect-builder who built these types of special villas on Providenciales for 26 years. In 2006 he finished this one for himself; it is the culmination of his experience in this island both in design and quality of finish. He created an elegant rustic style with spacious, airy rooms and a Mediterranean color palette that would age gracefully. I hope you will agree that this is an unusually gracious Caribbean home.
We both live in New England and revel in the outstanding scenery, variety and climate here in the Turks and Caicos. It is indeed a very special place. I hope you come and see what we mean.
Why the Owner Chose Sunset Bay: We chose this property as it sits on a ridge where it captures both spectacular views of Chalk Sound and the ocean and the constant cooling breezes, which properties right on the beach do not. The beach is very close by and, as it is a public beach, any privacy issues and sand flies we don't have to deal with at all on the ridge. These are hidden benefits you only find out by spending time here. Also, we offer an idyllic tropical setting for your vacation at a more modest cost than a house right on the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Villa Rosso di Sera is very private with its walled gardens and pool -- more like an oasis. Although we have neighbours, the tropical landscaping is lush, such that you really don't notice them or have to be concerned about them. The house ventilates very well and everyone comments on the breezes that constantly flow through the house. The solar-heated pool with its ample sunning and and quiet reading decks is especially appreciated by visitors as pools that are not heated are quite cool in the winter months. We especially like to cook and entertain and the kitchen and dining facilities make it really easy to welcome small and larger groups. We have four different dining areas including a very special round table under a capacious gazebo out by the pool .
