"Perfect...surreal...unreal...total bliss! There are no words to describe how amazingly wonderful our week at Villa del Sol in Providenciales was. Opening the front door to a glorious, unobstructed view of the most turquoise water in the world was unforgettable. Within 24 hours of arriving, I saw a double rainbow, a porpoise, fish jumping, and a perfect huge conch shell tumbling up on shore.
I rented the house with my sister, mother and niece and so 3 generations of admittedly fussy women were in paradise. As soon as we crossed the threshold into the villa, we knew we had picked the right place. We all slipped into a natural, laid back routine every day of waking up early, beach combing, swimming, making pina coladas for lunch (!), more swimming, going for a drive to explore the island, having dinner, reading or watching a movie, and then sleeping like babies and waking up and doing it all over again. Renting the "Lady K" boat for a half-day cruise to Shell Island and Parrot Cay with Rico and Captain Tom was a high point of the week, if not my life!
Just a 3-minute drive to Grace Bay shops and restaurants, but far enough away from the resorts to enjoy total beach privacy (we had one lovely family in the house next door and generally saw a total of just 3-5 other people on the beach the whole week!). The house and beach and pool and views are exactly as advertised, even better. I can assure you that the blue colors in the photos are not "enhanced" - the reality is even more astonishing than the pictures. The house itself is gorgeous, very well designed with perfect "flow," generous spaces everywhere, and perfectly equipped. We bought nothing but fresh foodstuffs at the nearby IGA, and Basia and Gail were kind enough to pre-stock the refrigerator so that everything was well-stocked upon arrival and all we had to do was settle in to gin and tonics and a dinner of grilled surf and turf! We felt incredibly pampered the entire time. Nothing didn't work; nothing was "not as advertised." Everything exceeded expectations, which is really rare these days.
Renting a car and driving from the airport to Villa del Sol was a breeze - about 10 minutes straight down the Leeward Highway, and even I could handle driving on the left side of the road!:-). It's been tough coming back to the snow and ice of the Northeast U.S. We cannot stop talking about it. The most memorable holiday I've ever had. Highly, highly recommended."
