About Dave Scopino
I am a Husband to a Wonderful Woman whom is patient and loving of which I respect deeply. I have 3 Beautiful children who are establishing great character and Integrity. This is my most greatest accomplishment. We try to live our lives for God yet recognize the more different someone is from us. The greater the opportunity to learn and grow as we gain diverse perspectives. I recognize that I am a flawed individual who can never judge anyone. I am simply called to do my best and be my best for my family and others. But if I fall short I must be courageous and accept responsibility to make things right. I care about my name and my word. Recognize my imperfections and strengths and try to put forth effort to lift others up in life as God has done for me and my family. I am truly grateful to offer Grace on the Bay to you. Hence the name Grace on the Bay. Had it not been for the Grace of God I would not be able to do so. That being said I know this isn't the conventional blurb about an individual but then again most things about me are not conventional. As is also the Case with Grace on the Bay. Nevertheless my hope for you and the people you visit with to be one filled with an increased Love for yourself and those with you.

A review cannot fully capture our experience or relate our pleasure with the experience of being a 5 day guest of Grace on the Bay. We have been married for 30 years together and we needed a place to just be alone and it could not have been better. We came to North for the beach and solitude and to explore. It was literally a perfect stay. The quality of the beach and scenery just steps outside the back door is better than Grace Bay, better than The Maldives, better than Poipu. We are grateful to the owner to make this property available for us to experience. We will rebook and encourage others to do the same and do so with full confidence.
Amazing place to stay!!
We had a great time at Grace on the Bay. The house has everything you need to enjoy a family vacation. The 14 out of us are already discussing our next trip back.
Truly a memorable and tranquil vacation.
We had such an amazing time at Grace on the bay. We were 6 adults with 6 children and one baby. The house and the property were a perfect fit. Especially with the baby. We spent the entire time there. The guys went to Miss. B every night and brought us home dinner. She was a sweetheart. She emailed me every morning with the daily specials! Mary and Marilyn were great and took care of any questions or accommodations we needed. We can’t wait to go back!
10 Year Anniversary Celebration
My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at Grace on the Bay with family! We had the most incredible time. The villa is exceptionally beautiful, the beach is calm and tranquil. We stayed for a week with very young children. The home has absolutely everything you need for your vacation.
My husband and I had a small vow renewal at the villa, steps from the beach! It was the most picturesque backdrop for our special day! Definitely have your groceries delivered to make for an easy ferry ride. We had two catered dinners during our week stay. Merrica is amazing. She catered our ceremony dinner and was so gracious with us. Dave was informative and available anytime I had questions. We had no issues with the villa. We definitely recommend Grace on the Bay for a fabulous beach getaway!
Great property, great views, Marylin and Mary are the best!
Lots of pool time, snorkeling, beach time, and family bonding time. House was spectacular, great for our large party of 13. I would definitely stay there again!!
Thank you kindly sir. It brings me great joy to hear everyone is pleased with Grace on the Bay Villa, our fantastic team and unique environment. All 3 are beautiful and so very special!
I am grateful Your Grace on the Bay Experience was fulfilling. It has been a pleasure communicating with and serving you.
Grace on the Bay Villa will be Honored to host your family again!
With Great Respect and Appreciation, I thank you.
This is a beautiful and well-kept property that offers all of the comforts and amenities needed for a restful sojourn in a secluded area of North Caicos Island, away from the typical bustle of the usual popular shore resort. Ideal for a family getaway to promote reconnection and positive interaction. Our family is scattered all over the US (Seattle, San Francisco, Phoenix, and New Jersey) and we appreciated the opportunity to come together in what one of our group called "paradise."
We purchased all the food necessary for a week's worth of meals in advance in Provo, supplemented by whatever was needed from one or two of the local groceries on the island. The house was well-supplied with the usual essentials and the outdoor grill was clean and in excellent condition. We found having a small rental car useful and used it to drive to the local groceries and shops and to Middle Caicos Island (about an hour away) to visit the Conch Bar Caves National Park. Enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking to take a look at an abandoned shipwreck about 1/4 mile offshore. The ocean in this area was calm, without adverse currents, and the beach clean and conducive to long early morning or late afternoon walks.
The owner, Dave Scopino, is friendly and accommodating and his concierge, Marilyn, and property manager, Mary, were receptive and helpful. Dominic did a fine job keeping the pool clean and pleasant.
I am humbly grateful and sincerely delighted by many items in your review and Thank you.
When most choose to go to the Caribbean they often times select capitol cities which are highly marketed areas. They do not realize that there are many other islands that establish an Archipelago in an Island nation like Turks abd Caicos.
Our Island of North Caicos, although not heavily marketed is ultra exclusive with our closest neighbor being Parrot Cay. Home of many Rich and a Famous. We offer our visitors, as one in your party referenced, “Paradise”. An opportunity to experience what is intentionally preserved and recognized to be the last of the unspoiled Carribean. Free of crime, miles of five star beach all to yourself without anyone trying to sell you something or acting inappropriately.
Our waters also 5 Star, as made mention are “calm without any adverse currents.” Grace on the Bay is one of the only locations that has calm waters year round. We are positioned in a bay at the northern most point of the islands and surrounded by a barrier reef. This establishes Grace on the Bay Villas location, not only beautiful. But a rarity amongst all other Villas/ Resorts. As the wind blows hard it typically makes for big waves and strong currents, not the case at Grace on the Bay Villa.
The shipwreck offshore from the Villa’s amazing beach, kayaking, world class fishing also off GOB’s beach, snorkeling “three mary’s” (the islands most accessible snorkel destination insight from the villa, conch bar caves, pool and many other amenities Grace on the Bay villa is appointed with offer an action packed vacation should our guests desire such.
“Ideal for a family getaway to promote reconnection and positive interaction.”
This comment warmed my heart most and is a primary hope of Grace on the Bay for every guest. We have carefully designed Grace to have many areas and activities that facilitate and promote connection and positive interaction.
It has been our Honor to be associated with the everlasting family memories created during your stay. In addition it’s been our pleasure.
May Grace be upon all of you until we meet again.
We at Grace on the Bay sincerely hope and desire that your stay be everything you dream it will be and more.

The great News is that most activity on North Caicos revolves around the beach – and Grace on the Bay is located on the best and most peaceful beach of the Island.
Dont forget you have unfished water in your back yard! So bring a Fishing pole. Im not making any guarantees. But, with the right bait Fishing from the surf or while wading in the water will almost always produce a fish.
Swimming and Snorkeling in the crystal clear water are great family activities. You can take a walk down the beach to Three Mary's Cay (A snorkeling destination) and see tropical fish and coral heads. One of our most favorite things to do is explore the uninhabited beach. You never know what treasures you will find, day to day Beachcombing. More often than not you will be the first, last and only people on the beach. Some other fun activities include Shelling, Stand up Paddle Boarding, or walking hand and hand as the children run on the beach and splash in the shallow waters. Or you can just relax in a Hammock on your very own PRIVATE RESORT!
There is a tennis court close to the villa which used to be part of an old resort resort. You will see it on the left as you drive to the villa. It can be a little overgrown, but doesn’t take much to make it playable as it has an all-weather surface that is in good condition. It may even make for a great story.
Whatever you choose to do or not do, remember to take plenty of pictures and capture the beautifully peaceful memories made with those you love while staying at Grace on the Bay Villa. You can revisit the prescious moments in your mind when life requires effort, or you can always come back.
ATTRACTIONS ON NORTH AND MIDDLE CAICOS

This location for snorkeling is the top accessible spot on the island. Small amounts of coral, colorful reef fish and the occasional stingray can be seen.
