They do a great job at Love Villas
We loved our stay there. They have literally thought of everything. The work they put in for those 3 villas is amazing. We are VRBO owners with high expectations and they exceeded almost every one of them. The Gem car was great. The kitchen is stocked with everything including a Ninja blender etc. Showers were terrific! The beds were so comfortable we are interested in buying the same mattresses. We used the paddle boards, deck chairs, and floats. You are only 100 yards from where the fisherman bring in lobster, fish, conchs etc. so we would walk down and pick up fresh seafood in the evening. Richard has high end grills right on the back deck to grill whatever you have. Restaurants are very good but a little pricey (expected). The local islanders are very friendly and you feel safe at all times. The water is as amazing as it looks in the photos. Donkeys are everywhere on the island and add to the eccentricity of Grand Turk. We will definitely be back!
Thank you for your great review! It was our pleasure having you as our guest and we look forward to your next visit.

LOVE Villas beyond perfect!
Our stay at LOVE Villas was beyond perfect. Richard and Yohamna were the most wonderful hosts. My son and I were greeted at the airport by Richard. He gave us a tour of the island. Showed us how to get around, where to eat (favorites were The Ridge Cafe and Bohio), where to shop, and places to explore and available excursions. He and Yohamna made us feel like long time friends. Our Villa was beyond what we imagined. Beautifully furnished and stocked with everything we possibly needed. Richard even gave us a bottle of wine. The view was breathtaking and the beach was right outside our door. We had floats, snorkeling equipment, paddle boards, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas. We also wanted to tryout scuba diving while on the island and Richard hooked us up with and amazing dive shop (Humpback Dive Shack). And the GEM electronic car was AMAZING! It allowed us to tour all around the island and enjoy everything Grand Turk had to offer. I cannot say enough about how amazing our stay was and how awesome Richard and Yohamna were. We are planning out next trip to go back soon and know this will be a regular vacation spot for us going forward.
Thank you for everything Richard and Yohamna!
Thank you for your perfect review! We are so glad that we and LOVE Villas Grand Turk exceeded your expectations! We are sure your review will help our future guest know what to expect at LOVE. We can't wait to welcome you back as our guest.

Perfect Paradise to Relax & Recharge
By definition, PERFECT means having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be. That is how our family would describe LOVE Villas.
My husband and I have traveled to many Caribbean islands and are now introducing our teenage children to Caribbean life. We’ve always done all-inclusive resort vacations. This was the first time we used VRBO to book a vacation rental property outside of the US and our first time in Grand Turk. We were a little apprehensive for what this new vacation adventure would bring.
Our apprehension was a distant memory as soon as we arrived and met Richard and his wife Yohamna. They are the ultimate hosts from beginning to end. From the transportation to and from the airport, to the tour of the island upon arrival, to including some provisions to get our vacation started. Richard is always around during your stay and only a phone call/text away if you need anything (day or night). He will email you the daily menus from some of the local restaurants in case you decide to have a meal out.
The villa is situated on the most beautiful beach with crystal clear water in the most vibrant shades of blue, green, and teal. Spectacular sunset views. Paddleboards, snorkeling equipment, water shoes, bikes, beach chairs/umbrellas are all included with each villa. But I think the best amenity is the GEM car! A family favorite. It afforded us the opportunity to explore and travel the island at our leisure (something you can’t really do at an all-inclusive resort).
The interior of the villa feels just like home. Comfortable beds, Wi-fi and tv, washer/dryer with detergents, toiletries (including hair dryers), and beach/bath towels – just to name a few. The kitchen includes every amenity you would have in your own kitchen.
My husband and children went scuba diving with Humpback Dive Shack (recommended by Richard). Brian and Sabine were great! Very easy reservation process and the diving was fantastic. FYI – cash only payment.
Our favorite dining spots were Ridge Café, Bohio, Turks Head Inne, and the Osprey Beach Hotel Restaurant. Some of these restaurants are cash only as well.
LOVE Villas exceeded all our expectations and more. It was hard to say goodbye to this gorgeous place. This will definitely go down as one of our favorite family vacations where great memories were made.
Thank You so much for your Perfect Review! We really appreciate you taking the time to articulate so much Great information for our future guest! It was such a Pleasure having your family stay at LOVE Villas. We are so glad we lived up to your expectations. We look forward to your next visit.

Best Vacation Spot and Villa Ever
From start to finish this was without a doubt our best Family Vacation. Love Villas took all the worries out of traveling out of the Country for my Family. They provided a SAFE CLEAN BEAUTIFUL place to stay, that made us FEEL at home the minute we walked in. This Villa is right on the most beautiful calm white sand beach on the Island of Grand Turks. Water was gorgeous everyday and with Love Villas supplying all your water needs, paddleboard’s, snorkels, water shoes, flooring mats, chaise lounges, towels, umbrellas, basically everything you need to enjoy the beach and the water is at your fingertips and provided and INCLUDED in your stay. The Villas face west so each night you get to say goodbye to Mr Sun and thank him for a wonderful day.
Now let’s talk Villa, with Love Villas this is what you get, and MAN O MAN is it a VALUE for your dollar. The Villa is a two bedroom two bath full kitchen nice living room and wonderfully appointed. Everything you need is inside to make it just like home, wonderful soft towels for your bath or shower, paper towels, toilet paper, kitchen is fully equipped to Prepare meals, the Water filtration system that provides fresh clean water to drink. The Villa has three AC units that provide the right amount of cool air if needed. Each room has a three speed ceiling fan to move the air to keep you cool at night as well. Your Villa has a balcony with comfortable chairs and power awning to protect you from the sun if needed. You have STRONG WIFI and Dish Cable TV in each room. Your Villa comes with its own GEM Vehicle that we drove over 100 miles during our stay. Richard and his wife Ms V have thought of everything to provide US - YOU to make this a memorable wonderful vacation. I highly recommend if you’re looking to go to Grand Turks that you book with Love Villas. TRUST me when I say it’s the best value the best location and the best hosts you’ll find ANYWHERE Turks!!!

🌟🌟Best VACATION Ever!!!🌟🌟
Giving this property 10 stars would not even begin to give it Justice! The home was exactly as described, when the kids walked in all they could say is WOW this is amazing! The views were breathtaking, the beach was beautiful, the water was a gorgeous picturesque turquoise! Everything we could have hoped for on our vacation!
The Gem car was a great added bonus as it gave us the freedom and mobility to go to the grocery store or Governors beach or out to eat. Pretty much anything we wanted to do was easily assessable with the car. The kids loved going to Margaritaville and swimming in the pool.
We all snorkeled in the water in front of the condo and found it had the best coral, fish, etc on the island. We even noticed that a lot of the dive tour groups brought their guests directly out in front of the condo. Why pay for that extra trip...it’s all here!
Only warning...try not to fall in love with the pot cakes that visit the beach out front every morning! These sweet dogs will steal your heart! ❤️❤️
The hosts, Richard and Yohama were the best! They Showed us around the island, told us the best places to get groceries, the best places to eat and were easily assessable and available for any questions or concerns we had.
We loved our stay so much we are already discussing when we can return!
Thank you so much for helping us make an amazing memorable family vacation!!
Thank you for your fabulous review! We are sure other guest will find it helpful in making the decision of where to stay! We are so glad you and your family had such a great time and we look forward to your next visit to LOVE Villas Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands. It was a pleasure hosting all of you. See you soon!

This was our second stay at Richard's Love Villas and it surely wont be our last. Richard has added a new amenity to his arsenal and it is sure to add to his growing list of returning visitors. A Gem electric cart is now included with your stay. Tour the whole island and feel safe doing so.
Richard has literally thought of everything and included it with your stay at his Villas., and is always on call if you need anything or are just looking for general information about the island or where to eat. Thank you again, Richard, for taking care of us!! See you soon
Thank you for your wonderful review! It has been a pleasure having your family come and stay at LOVE Villas Grand Turk! We think we have something special and we are so glad you do too! See you soon!
