  • Found our new "home"!

    "This was our third stay at Villa Renaissance and our first stay in this condo. Mel from Allied Management arrived right around the same time that we did. She unlocked the door, we walked in and wow - we fell in love. This condo is beautiful, functional and feels like home. All of the little things are thought of here - a small cooler for the beach, bug spray, sunscreen, take out menus from a ton of different restaurants, a pad and pen for notes, a gallon of water for your stay cold in the refrigerator. The condo is decorated elegantly but comfortably. The living area and kitchen are in one large area together and quite spacious. The furniture is comfortable and there is everything in the kitchen that you would need if you want to cook meals. The bedroom is a good size with lots of closet space for clothes and shoes, and the bathroom is huge with a shower, a large vanity with two sinks, lots of large, thick towels. On to the pool area - quiet and elegant and nice to sit and read a book by. The beach - as always, stunning. In our three stays here, there has always been enough umbrellas and chairs for all guests which is such a plus. My favorite thing to do is bring a floatie (and if you don't bring one, there are floaties that others have left in a big brown box on the walkway to the beach) and float from VR down to Point Grace, get out, walk back and do it again. It's the best way to spend an afternoon being a beach bum We saw a ton of starfish to the right of the hotel. Quick note on starfish - please do not take them out of the water and handle them. They die quickly when they are out of the water. Thanks. The staff - always smiling, always ready to help in anyway. The location of Villa Renaissance makes it one of the most centrally located resorts on Grace Bay, with a ton of restaurants in all price points within short walking distance, plus lots of shopping as well. We always rent a car, but if you don't want to, feel comfortable knowing that you are well located here. So now as I sit here to write this review, I'm trying to figure out when we can return. Hopefully it will be soon and we will definitely book this condo at Villa Renaissance again."

  • What a gift!

    "Having just returned from a wonderful stay at the Ocean Palms, it is hard to resist a laundry list of superlatives. All our expectations were met, most directly by the unparalleled beauty unfolding before you as you sip your coffee (or rum punch) and consider the fact that you are neither shoveling snow nor sitting in traffic. Moreover, Peter and Sally were more than willing to give our group of 4 couples all the direction we needed. The Villa itself is charming and full of all you need for a blissful time away. Our only concern is that more positive reviews may make it more difficult to book our next holiday."

  • We loved Bonefish Haven!

    "We had a wonderful time at the Villa. It's private and peaceful and it has a spectacular view. We dined out a couple of times but preferred to have dinner outside at the villa while watching the sunset. The pool was a perfect size for us (2 adults and 2 teenagers). We only stayed a week but were very sad to leave and would have preferred to stay 2 weeks (Next time). Its close to grocery stores and 2 gorgeous beaches (Taylor bay and Sapodilla Bay), and its only 15 minutes from gracebay beaches. If your reading this and your looking for a place to stay, this place is awesome, and Tina is great. Tina, thank you so much for letting us stay at your villa."

Turks & Caicos Islands Travel Tips

Turks and Caicos Vacation Rentals Welcome Visitors

Located some 650 miles east-southeast of Miami, the Turks and Caicos Islands are a British overseas territory. This sun-seekers' paradise is a neighbor to the Bahamas. Its capital is Cockburn Town, located on Grand Turk Island. The main entry point is Providenciales, with its international airport and harbor. From here, visitors can fly on to any of the inhabited islands. Its tropical climate and pleasant trade winds makes it an attractive location. This largely unspoiled area is a unique paradise where the inhabitants, or "belongers" as they are known, warmly welcome visitors. Visitors to Turks and Caicos vacation rentals come for the unspoiled beaches and crystal-clear water. Here, they enjoy the relaxed atmosphere along with beautiful scenery.

The Caicos Islands

The area of West Caicos is perfect for scuba diving and fishing. This uninhabited island is accessible by boat and often, the only company you'll have are the birds. While on the island, visitors often hike to Lake Catherine and the ruins of Yankee Town where all that remains are the remnants of the railroad and a steam engine.

Bird-lovers will also enjoy a trip to Little Water Cay, currently being developed as a nature resort for its wide variety of birds. Once the haunt of pirates such as Mary Reid and Annie Bonnie, Parrot Cay is now currently being developed into a resort area. Known as the "Emerald Isle" for its fertile soil, North Caicos is where much of the island's food is produced. It is also a tourist area, with miles of deserted beaches. Here, visitors will see osprey, flamingos and iguanas among the wildlife at the nature reserve. Middle Caicos, or "Grand Caicos," as it is sometimes known, is an undeveloped island. The inhabitants live in one of three settlements--Conch Bar, Banbarra and Lorimers. The coast is made up of bluffs and small, quiet coves on the west. To the south and north are high limestone cliffs and white sandy beaches. Here, visitors can explore the island's incredible caves. Middle Caicos is connected to North Caicos by a causeway accessible to cross at low tide.

Uninhabited East Caicos is home to the local turtle population who lay their eggs along its 17 miles of beach at the north of the island. Evidence of early rock carvings has been discovered to the northwest. On South Caicos is the quiet capital of Cockburn Harbor where visitors to Turks and Caicos villas can enjoy a quiet but social evening. During the day, this island is known for yachting, diving and spectacular big-game fishing.

The Turks Island

Grand Turk is the location of the islands' government and its business area. Visitors to Turks and Caicos vacation rentals here will enjoy the history as well as the culture. The waterfront museum details the story of the Molasses shipwreck and features rare manuscripts and prints gathered from among the islands. Buildings here date from the early 19th century, with high, white-washed walls and imposing entrances. Visitors will enjoy the diving, walks and guided tours on offer here.

Salt Cay, dominated by an imposing 1830s-style, white Bermudian house is one of the most charismatic of the Salt Islands. It is home to salt ponds which are still productive. Here, visitors will find relics of the old whaling industry. It has excellent beaches and during the winter, the majestic humpback whales can be spotted off its coast. Many visitors choose Turks and Caicos travel during the winter in order to spot these incredible gentle giants en route to their nearby breeding ground. Real enthusiasts will enjoy a diving trip to listen to the whales' song underwater. Visitors will also enjoy the opportunity to swim with the dolphins and turtles and see the spotted eagle rays and manta rays.

Turks and Caicos Travel to Find a Home Away From Home

Visitors to Turks and Caicos villas will find a warm welcome from the "belongers" and a wonderful property to call home. There is such an array of properties available that visitors will be hard-pressed to pick the one that best suits them. Huge beachfront properties,with their own docks and pool or small cozy cottages with private pools--the choice is impressive. Each property comes with all the little extras that make a vacation home into something really special. The major benefit of renting a home is that of space; you'll get to relax in private, peaceful surroundings. Visitors will find all that and much more with these Turks and Caicos vacation rentals.
