Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This spacious, breezy, and light-filled vacation condo, is actually a JUNIOR SUITE, located at the popular Ocean Club West on Grace Bay beach. At 920 sq ft this suite is TWICE THE SIZE OF MOST STUDIOS AND HAS A FULL KITCHEN. Exceptionally comfortable, the open floor plan with a king size bed makes it ideal for couples.

With no stairs to climb,this ground floor unit, offers direct access to the large free-form pool and a beach that Conde Nast Traveler Magazine considers one of the finest in world. For four straight years, 2011- 2015, Traveler's Choice Awards named Grace Bay the #2 Beach in the World.

The suite offers 18 feet of sliding glass doors, which open onto the screened terrace and fill the suite with light and enhance the spacious feeling.

The suite's large - 25' by 8'- screened terrace makes a great space for cocktails, Caribbean dining, or relaxing with a book. Enjoy the ocean breeze throughout the day and night. You can sleep with the sliders open to the screened terrace so that you can enjoy the ocean breezes. If you prefer, close the doors, as the suite is fully air conditioned.

Most studios only offer a microwave in a galley kitchen, but this JUNIOR SUITE offers a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher giving you the ability to prepare breakfast, lunch or dinner at home when you want.

Ocean Club West is one of the few resorts offering gas grills for the guests to use. It's hard to beat a nice steak dinner and glass of wine on your own terrace -- and eating in saves you money, too. This suite has an expresso coffee maker for those, like me, who enjoy a good strong coffee in the morning. There's even a coffee grinder in case you want to buy whole beans.

My suite features a full size front loading washer and dryer--better than the ones I have in my own home -- and I provide the detergent. Of course, there is also an ironing board and iron! In the bathroom you'll find soap, shampoo, and conditioner for the shower as well as a hair dryer. In the kitchen you don't need to buy paper towels, dish washing soap or powder for the machine as they are all provided. I also provide sugar, salt and pepper and some spices for cooking. You don't have to buy a five pound bag of sugar just to sweeten your coffee!

As an added benefit, suite 516 offers free calling from the suite to the United States and Canada. Calls from Providenciales to the United States and Canada are often billed by resorts at $2.00 per minute, which can add up fast. So whether you need to stay in touch with the office or just check and respond to the messages on your answering machine at home you'll be saving a bundle. This suite even has a Connecticut phone number that you can give to your friends and family so that they can call you directly without paying for calls to the Caribbean.

Suite 516 offers a private wireless Internet network with a computer in the suite so that you can check your email or surf the web 24 hours a day without having to go to the lobby or bring your own computer.

My guests enjoy Spotify and Amazon Prime music for commercial free music regardless of the genre of music you prefer.. You can also bring your own music and connect with Bluetooth to speaker. The 42' flat screen HDTV with Netflix provides another entertainment option.

At the resort you will find two tennis courts for both day and night play, and a fitness room for your use.

The resort has a casual restaurant, the Seaside Cafe, located on-site. Three more restaurants are located in the Ports of Call shopping village just down the block. There are lots of restaurants in easy walking distance.

Grace Bay beach is the main attraction. The magical crystal clear water, white sand and the world's third largest barrier reef combine to create an idyllic swimming environment. Thanks to the island's barrier reef the surf is usually only inches high, so no getting knocked over by waves.

While most resorts are located on Grace Bay,,Ocean Club West enjoys a wider beach than most. Ocean Club West is located on a low-density part of the beach on Grace Bay. We're next door to the Grace Bay Club, where rates start at over $6,000 per week in the winter. Our other neighbor is The Pinnacle, a 28 unit condominium where individual units started at $1.3 million. To pinpoint my suite on this website, click the Location link and then Satellite and zoom in with the + symbol.feature or go to Google Maps and enter 21.79794N 72.17423W. The green arrow will point to the building the suite is in.

Remember: This open floor plan -- 920 square feet--is the same size as many one bedroom suites, but here the open design creates a brighter, breezier, and beautifully decorated space. It offers a king size bed, full kitchen and a screened terrace that is a generous 25'x 8'.

All suites at Ocean Club West are individually decorated. By booking my suite you know in advance which suite you are getting and avoid being randomly assigned a suite at check-in.

And don't forget the free telephone calls so that you can stay in touch with friends and family.

About Keith Halstead

Having owned a travel agency for 20 years, I have traveled extensively in the Caribbean. I, as well as the Conde Nast travelers, have called Grace Bay one of the best beaches in the world. After two more trips to familiarize myself with all the possibilities I chose Ocean Club West.

Keith Halstead purchased this condo in 2005

Why Keith Halstead chose Providenciales

I looked at all of the possibilities before making my choice for Ocean Club West. I found the junior suite, at 920 square feet, was large enough to be a full time residence. The screened terrace, which almost becomes another room for the suite, and the beautiful gardens were also part of my decision. I also wanted a resort with tennis courts. The location in the middle of Grace Bay puts you in the center of things. and the airport is only a 20 minute drive away so getting to/from the resort is easy. The currency is the dollar. The electricity is 110v with the same plug we use in the States or Canada.

What makes this condo unique

The brand new supermarket is in walking distance so no rental car is needed. Free phone calls to the United States and Canada which can save a lot of money. Upgraded linens (sheets and towels). Twice the size of other studios. Full kitchen. Nicely decorated with original art.

Beautiful Studio Condo - perfect for couples!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have traveled to Turks several times prior and have stayed at multiple properties. We generally bring our daughters or other family, but this time we were flying solo and chose this little gem. Completely recommend this for those who want to get away and have all the luxuries of home. This place is packed with everything you could need to cook for yourselves if you choose. The furnishings are very nice and I would chance to say that Keith enjoys his electronics!! There are so many little perks that many other places would never think of including, but are so perfect and amazing.

Being so close to Salt Mills Plaza, Gourmet IGA and the awesome downtown restaurants and shopping is so fabulous. I would completely recommend this place, it is awesome:)

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! This unit has everything you could need. We cooked steak one night on the spotless grill (they take them apart and clean them every morning) Walkng out the slider door directly to the pool was awesome. Easy walking distance to everything. Great restaurant at OCW. Keith was very responsive and informative. We highly recommend renting this place on VRBO!!

Stop searching,,,, THIS IS THE ONE!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're a couple looking for a great place, with great access to the beach, restaraunts, shopping, grocery store etc., then look no further and book Keith's unit asap! The other reviews sum up the amenities and I'll vouch for every one of them. The owner goes above and beyond to insure your trip goes as planned without inconvenience. First time we went without a rental car and truly never needed one. At times, there are small carts at the front desk that can be used for the trip to the grocery store. I think sometimes people forget to return them but there was one there when we needed one. Great convenience for lugging a case of water, beer, wine etc. Taxi to restaraunts too far to walk to runs about $24. There are many good places to eat within walking distance.

Too sum it up, we'll be back!!

OCW 516 - Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I had a fabulous stay in this condo at Ocean Club West. The unit had everything I could have wanted or needed. I loved the ground floor location which was just steps to the pool and the beach. The screened in porch was a lovely place to relax and eat dinner or read in the evenings. I cooked most meals in the kitchen or on the grill out in the gazebo. Also, being within walking distance to the grocery store, shops, restaurants, and bars made it a perfect location on the island. Most of all it was just a fantastic place to relax on the beautiful beach or by the pool. Keith answered every question and then some which was so helpful during my stay. I look forward to returning to Turks and Caicos and would absolutely not hesitate to stay in OCW 516 again! I loved it! Thank you Keith!

Can't Wait to go Back!! Beach was outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a fantastic first visit to Turks & Caicos! The condo was perfect for the 2 of us. It was very clean and had everything we needed. I loved being on the first floor right at the pool with the restaurant and beach literally only steps away. When you have been at this AMAZING beach all day, the screened in porch was great to wind down and sip your favorite tropical bev and reading your favorite vaca book. The condo staff was really nice and very accommodating. The grocery store and really everything you need is within walking distance. We rented mopeds and visited Taylor Bay which was phenomenal! Next time I will take a floatie there. There was hardly anyone there during spring break! We stopped at the fish market in Five Cays on our way back for fresh off the boat fish (4pm each day) and got fresh snapper and rock lobster that my husband cooked on the grills provided at the condos. So YUM! We had all we needed in the kitchen as far as utensils / plates / pots /pans. And there were plenty of towels since the condos provide all pool and beach towels. What a trip!! I didn't want to leave. Thanks for such a great place for all your help. VRBO is the WAY TO GO!

OCW Suite Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO so having selected to rent this suite from this owner was a definite plus. We loved the suite and the owner has put thought into some very nice touches. This is the first time we've ever looked forward to being in our room and when you're on Provo that's really saying something! We've been staying at OCW for many years but won't hesitate to rent directly from this owner again. He was very responsive to an item that came up and resolved it quickly. The suite is awesomely positioned on the property and the grounds are kept picture perfect.
