About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms The Ultimate Caribbean Family Vacation Villa


Walk through the front entrance of Reef Tides and you are greeted by a breath-taking view straight from a tropical fantasy. The vivid blues of the sky, the turquoise of the ocean and the azure of the swimming pool merge into a sweeping panorama of Provo's North Shore. This will be the backdrop for all your vacation photographs, your next computer screensaver, your Snapchat story….. and your lasting holiday memories.

Reef Tides is an elegant and luxurious pod-style family villa built around a central elevated patio that becomes the heart of your stay: poolside fun, sunbathing, casual alfresco meals, barbecue cook-outs and cocktails at sundown all happen here. Flower-filled tropical gardens surround you both inside and out.


Wherever you go at Reef Tides, the view goes with you. Gaze out to sea from the raised beach-side cabana, a perfect vantage point to keep watch over the kids while swimming or, if you’re lucky, to see a migrating whale in Winter. Hide away with a good book in the thatched tiki hut as delicate butterflies flit by; doze off for a siesta to the sound of hummingbirds in the hibiscus; or get some ‘me time’ in the stone-built artist's studio, tucked away among the palm trees, perfect for yoga or painting.


A stroll down the garden path takes you to carved stone steps providing safe and easy access into the ocean or, at low tide, to the pocket sandy beach. There you can enjoy snorkelling in the pristine waters of the Princess Alexandra Marine Park in a private section of reef protected from boats; you can spot rays, turtles, an array of soft corals and countless colourful small fish. It's a five-minute amble along the shore, or at high tide an easy wade through knee-high water, to quiet Babalua Beach if you're looking for an all-day stretch of sand.


Four guest suites, each one beautifully appointed in a contemporary style and colour-coordinated to the tones of the Caribbean, enjoy ocean views. Mirror-image master suites, in East and West-facing pods, have private balconies, perfect for an early morning coffee or a romantic night cap. An exterior staircase takes you down to the fourth suite with its own TV and sitting area. Rooms all have AC, ceiling fans and provide generous storage. Soap, shower gel and hairdryers are provided in bathrooms. An additional poolside powder room has a WC and basin.

About Michele Marcus

Our family first visited Turks & Caicos in 2013 and fell in love with the island. The reputation of its beaches and pristine waters for snorkelling and scuba diving are what drew us there. We bought Reef Tides, our own slice of paradise, the following year and have made significant improvements to the property. Each time we visit we are still mesmerised by the beaches and the under-sea world and can hardly tear ourselves away from that view. This is hardly surprising when, living in London, UK, we awake to grey skies most of the year!

Michele Marcus purchased this villa in 2014

Why Michele Marcus chose Providenciales

Reef Tides offers a spacious 4,000 sq ft of holiday living set in an acre of mature gardens and grounds. It is the ultimate luxury family vacation villa for those who enjoy living their dreams.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bachelorette party of 8 girls had the time of their life. The view from Reef Tides is incredible. Every morning we enjoyed walks on the beach followed by a relaxing day in the pool. The memories we made in this house will last us a lifetime!

Exclusive Luxury Experience

  • 5 of 5

Having been to T&C before, we booked Reef Tides knowing that it is in a fantastic location. The villa has unparalleled views over the sea and the reef. The layout is nice and open and the dining & pool area becomes the focal point of daily life. Our kids enjoyed the pool and the sea is within easy reach down through the garden. We enjoyed the luxury of the location, the good standard of the house and the amazing privacy away from tourists on the island. We also witnessed the incredible nature around us: Pelicans, Rays, Hummingbirds & Osprey to name a few.

The owners were very friendly and responsive. We cannot recommend Reef Tides highly enough. Hopefully we can return one day...

Idyllic, serene: near everything - yet secluded.

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded expectations. Incredibly close to airport - and whatever you'd like to do - yet the house feels as though it's islands away from any hubbub. Super peaceful. Loved the open layout and privacy of bedrooms, the cooling onshore breezes, stunning views over the infinity pool, and a short walk down a sloping coral path though the garden to a secluded shore. Felt far from 'the madding crowd' with instant swimming and snorkeling. The colors of the ocean are surreal and the rooms super comfy. My family is already asking when we can come back: definitely need to return and stay longer next time.

Joffe's Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Reef Tides: The definition of the perfect beach getaway. From the moment you open the door you are mesmerized by the fabulous views. My wife was recovering from health issues; so we were looking for a much needed getaway. RT was the perfect, peaceful place to rest and enjoy ourselves, away from the crowds. We could not have picked a better spot. The house is nestled right on top of a bluff with absolutely the best views we’ve ever seen. We ate most our meals outside under the covered porch looking over Scoots Reef. The few nights we decided to go out to dinner, we all wished we were back at the home with the cool ocean breeze. Location was perfect. Under 10 minute drive to airport, grocery store and Grace Bay. We can't wait to come back!!

Wonderful slice of tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend a week at Reef Tides in April and can confidently say its one of the most beautiful spots ever visited. Starting with the villa. Firstly, it’s as good, if not better than it looks in the photos. It is a beautiful indoor-outdoor space with luxurious private self contained villas for each of the bedrooms. The space is perfectly equipped and large enough to entertain with friends and family, hide away from the world, or do both. Lots of different spots from cute hidden loungers nestled into the beautifully manicured gardens, a sun deck perched on the rocks above the water or up on the terrace around the pool. A perfect white sandy beach emerges at low tide offering the height of privacy, or you can hang all day on the public (there’s nobody there ever) beach which is a 30 second walk away. We spent most of our time on the loungers with that view. The tranquility is heavenly and we quickly retreated back from the busy-ness of Grace Bay, feeling spoilt by Reef Tides with just the ocean soundtrack to be heard.

That said the house is super close to everything you need - supermarket, restaurants, activities so no problems there, and the hosts are wonderful.

Would return in an instant and my only word of caution is you’ll fall in love with Reef Tides and the islands!

Excellent location for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Reef Tides met all (family of 7) our expectations. We enjoyed our mornings preparing breakfast together in the nicely proportioned kitchen and ended several evening meals poolside. The seaside location is excellent and the trade wind breeze provided the perfect bit of solitude and relaxation we were looking for. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home.

Reef Tides is situated in International Drive, a quiet upscale residential area of Provo on the North shore. It is very centrally located meaning most attractions are no more than an easy 10-minute drive from the villa including the famous Grace Bay beach, the five-star resorts, world-class restaurants, modern supermarkets. Visitors can enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding (delivery by arrangement) at the villa or can venture further afield for scuba diving, kite surfing, jet skiing, ATV tours, horse back riding, fishing, kayak eco tours and many other activities.
