"We stayed with David and Amanda in the middle of April 2015 and we could not have had a better trip. The cottage, access to the beach and pool was perfect and exactly what we wanted. It was a great size, clean, comfy and had everything we needed. We wanted a more private and local feel to our stay rather then go to a hotel and we got both. We were able to cook some of our own meals or go out if we wanted. David and Amanda were wonderful too and so helpful. They gave us many suggestions regarding food, shopping, beaches, things to do etc. they made our stay so pleasant and we felt more than welcome on their property. We would come back for another vacation and stay here again. What a beautiful island, cottage and hosts. Thank you both so much for everything. We had a wonderful time!!
Katie and Stephen"

Great spot. Agree with all the positive reviews here
"-First time visitors to TCI from Canada. 6 adults (31 to 65) 3 kids (15mo to 5yo) visiting Feb 2015
-Home suited us very well. Lots of space, very comfortable and very clean as mentioned.
-great pool, very lush landscaping contributing to a private feel, nice outdoor seating/ dining table
-4 bikes (3 adult) , beach chairs, toys for kids....such a nice touch.
-kitchen was very nice, very well equipped as advertised and they even have a good selection of spices too. -BBQ is there too which we used twice for family meals at the house.
-beach was awesome. probably a 5-10 minute walk to the closest point. you could walk either direction. we were very surprised that the beaches were NOT busy, but then again you're not in a resort area until you start walking a ways west down the beach!
-for making your OWN food you can go to the Marina (<10 min bicycle) which is a small high-end grocer (limited proteins). It's expensive. Bring a backpack (the bicycles have baskets too). Alternatively you can bike to Graceway gourmet (about 30-45 mins each way on bicycle). Or drive to graceway gourmet (10 mins by car) or to the less expensive IGA on the highway (15+ mins by car.). Snacks are expensive so consider bringing your own (eg granola bars)
-Tonnes of good restaurants on the island.... they will provide you with dining guides and maps to help you find your way! Even the closest restaurants are a decently far walk, FYI but we walked as far as Hemingways (1 hour walk each way)
-agree to strongly recommend bringing bug spray. lots of little "no-see-em" bugs which bite some people more than others. they're everywhere on the island so you just gotta be prepared to deal with them!
-we loved walking (or cycling) into the grace bay commercial area but if you're not keen on exercise you would need a rental.
-we rented a scooter for one day (just my wife and I) from paradise scooters to explore the island and we also rented a 10 person van (grace bay rentals) to explore the island with the entire family. No problems with any rentals. Scooter rental employee picked you up and brought you to the rental location (and returned you). The van rental company offered complimentary drop off at the house and pickup at the house (very handy). Scooter rental was $75USD for a day, van was $190USD. Driving on the opposite side was NOT challenging. People drive relatively slow compared to what we're used to.
-we would all HIGHLY recommend Villa Tropica @ 25 Sandpiper. :)"

"We rented Barefoot Palms for a week in July. We've used vbro many times and we had another wonderful experience this time. First off, Ramona, the owner is terrific with answering questions, giving recommendations, assistance etc. It saved me a lot of time rather than going over to the Tripadvisor forums to ask questions. Also when the power went off in Leeward for just 45 minutes one night, Ramona called to check up on us. Also, Jameka and Wendy who are nearby on the island are very helpful if the need arises.
I am so thankful that we stayed on the Leeward end of the island because we felt this beach was by far the most spectacular and suited our needs better than Grace Bay. I had looked at another property that was in the chalk sound area and I'm so glad that I did not choose that one. It is just a short walk to the beach and I went running every morning on the beach up to Emerald Point. There are some large homes built on this beach, but they are set way back so as not to deter from the beauty of this amazing beach. Try snorkeling around some of the rock formations. Also, we felt the safest in this area of the island, not that we had any issues, but it was a very nice community.
Lastly, the house is older, but is well maintained and has everything you will need. The pool is wonderful and the plants, trees surrounding it are beautiful. We've been on many islands where the internet/tv/electricity/water etc gave us problems and that was not the case here. You won't want to spend a lot of time watching tv or using the internet, but it's there if you need it. The rental price is right on target, and compares to similar homes we've rented on other islands."

"If you are looking for a relaxing and charming villa – look no further. Villa Del Sol is amazing and perfect for couples or families. Basia and her team were impeccable at responding to any questions we had and we can’t thank them enough for making our vacation so special. The villa is perfect, clean and located on the best stretch of beach on the island…it is heaven. The charming island décor makes you feel right at home and the view is spectacular.
If you are looking for a first class chef with a wonderful personality, Craig Mcneil is a must! Craig has created dishes for many Hollywood types, but he became one of our family members for our week in Turks. Simply fantastic!
Our family would highly recommend Villa Del Sol to anyone who is looking for a vacation home in Turks. We will be back!"
