"We have travelled to many Caribbean destinations, Hawaii and South East Asia and Turks is the best place on earth in our opinion.
The Ryder Retreat was perfect for our family of (2 adults and 2 children). The pool was awesome, the house was clean and well equipped and the yard is amazing. My husband and I enjoyed the gym every morning then a refreshing swim. The house is only 5 minutes from everything by car.
We will definitely come back to the Ryder Retreat.
Thanks Ryder family for sharing your home with us!"

"My husband and I arrived to an immaculately clean and well stocked condo. Manhy glasses, cookware, utensils, the whole kit and kaboodle. The only thing I wish there would have been were more, and bigger, plates. But hey, we only ate there for breakfast and lunch so how big does a plate need to be anyway? :) Everything in the condo worked perfectly except for one of the sliding glass door locks - we just couldn't get it open. There was another door so no problem! The restaurant on site was remarkably good. The property itsefls is maintained to perfection and there were always workers out tending to the grounds. We will 100% rent this place again if they will have us back!
Amanda and Andy from Dallas, TX"

"We stayed the first week of February 2015. Not only is this property exactly as portrayed - but it is more! The condo sits on a peaceful marina that is a joy to sit and soak up with a cocktail or morning coffee. We loved the Turtle Bay location - it felt central to exploring the island but tucked away from any hustle and bustle or tourist vibe. The beach (and reef with good snorkeling) are walking distance. There is great restaurant variety all in walking distance with pretty views. The pool is pristine. Owners are very kind and provided great tips for our vacation. The place was immaculate and generously stocked. It was loaded with extras like snorkel gear, sand chairs, beach umbrella, bags and anything you need to grill, blend or cook; we also found dominos, scrabble and cards, PERFECT vacation/romantic spot for us."

"My wife and I stayed in the "Cottage" for eight nights in early July. I've got to say, that South Fleetwood significantly exceeded our expectations and turned out to be one of the most relaxing and "easy" vacations we've been blessed to be able to take.
Colin and Kit have put their heart and souls into South Fleetwood and it shows. Everything is comfortable, thought out for a good experience for their guests and just very gracious. Kit was away while we were there so we only had the chance to meet Colin and get to know him a bit and thoroughly enjoyed our interactions with him.
What to know if you are considering renting at South Fleetwood? First of all, yes, do it. It's all about expectations. If you are looking for a "corporate" feel - then don't, but if you want comfy, room to roam (on the property as opposed to a room in a hotel) and convenience, then this is the place for you, imho.
The beach is a short walk away - 1 or 2 minutes? The beach is nice right out front, we tended to wander to the left (when facing the ocean - so West) and hung out more at the beach in front of "Beaches" resort. There are two public access huts for free to use that we preferred instead of the beach umbrellas that are provided by Colin. But that's just us.
We had a car but we like to explore, and since we mostly cooked out at South Fleetwood it was nice to be able to run over to the Grace Gourmet food store (more like a nice US supermarket than a "gourmet" store) whenever we wanted.
If this is your first time to Provo (Providenciales) as it was for us, then it might be nice to note that Grace Bay Beach is really all that - soft white sand, clear, beautiful blue water and very undeveloped. The island itself is more scrubish than mountainish so if you are looking for vistas you can do better on other Caribbean islands. Good to decent snorkeling on the island, search the web and you'll find tons of sites and specific details.
Great place, great host, great and relaxing time...and I thought, a good value as well.
