About the property

Large contemporary Grace Bay beachfront villa, sleeps 10-12. Private pool.

FOOTPRINTS ON THE BEACH VILLA - a luxurious beachfront private home, located directly on Grace Bay Beach.

Included in the rate are the services of our famous Chef Nadine! Chef provides 2 meals a day, working with you regarding diet, tastes, allergies etc. Her dishes are amazing! The only cost is for the groceries utilised plus a modest 10% grocery purchase fee - payable at the end of your stay.

Maid service also included.

Free wifi throughout.

Footprints is a large, modern, contemporary Grace Bay Villa rental in the Turks and Caicos, with private chef and maid service. Privately set in an acre of tropical grounds, the residence enjoys 100 feet of stunning Grace Bay Beach frontage and a private pool. The sand is as fine as sugar, no rocks and the slope into the ocean is very gentle, so perfect for young and old alike. Every room enjoys breathtaking westerly ocean views, with 2 of the en-suites having ocean facing bath tubs!

A large outdoor summer lounge is a unique feature, bedecked with Dedon furniture, as is the sunset deck with a gas fire pit on the beach edge - to enjoy the wondrous sunsets. Shaded outdoor dining area, pool side. With an amazing Italian designer kitchen, Philip Starck sanitary ware, glass-walled dining room and second 'media' lounge (surround sound TV), this is the best in luxurious beach living. The house is perfect for a caribbean beach wedding too. Many have used Footprints for this and other events.

We designed and built Footprints just a few years ago. We used a design unique and new to the island, being contemporary, stylish and expansive. We focused on the view the villa affords of the beauty of the ocean. With so many old styles of villa on the island, we knew the way forward was to create a villa which is fresh, chic and dynamic. A vacation home on the best beach with spectacular views.

Footprints sleeps up to 12 within 5 bedrooms (to accommodate 12, this would mean 8 adults and 4 children (sharing the 4-child suite). The ideal number is 10.

All this set in an acre of manicured gardens, gated for your reassurance.

To ensure relaxation is the key to your stay, and thus we are proud we own and operate the villa ourselves. No off-island management for us. We and our staff look after you from your initial enquiry through to your arrival and your stay with us. If you need any help, advice or assistance we are right here. Guests can be reassured that our service is speedy, focused and respectful.

All our little touches ...

We hope we have thought of everything and more! As you would expect we load Footprints with lots of thick, fluffy towels, bathrobes, Clarins toiletries, beach towels, the best bed linen, beach toys. TV’s in each room with Direct TV, beach and pool loungers and even a beach side gas fire pit! Perfect for s'mores!!

And finally, Footprints has been the venue for more villa weddings than any other. If you are planning on tying the knot, on the beach, and relaxing in your own beach home during this special time, Footprints On The Beach is ideal for event up to 40 additional guests. We know and can advise on great wedding coordinators. Event fee - $25 per attendee (for all guests attending, excluding the villa's resident guests).

So we invite you to send us an enquiry and we will answer as many questions as you may have regarding availability, cost, location, the island, airline information transfers etc. We have stacks of additional photos in addition to the limited number allowed on this site, so just ask!

We look forward to welcoming you to Footprints on the Beach, Grace Bay.

See you soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came for Spring Break and the weather was perfect and hot. We para-sailed, paddle boarded, went fishing, did snuba, wake boarding, Water Ski and Wake surf. We shopped went on a sunset cruise and enjoyed lots of relaxing around Footprints. Thank you to all the staff who were great.

We had a great time in the sun, had beautiful weather. We appreciated all the help in the house. We were truly on vacation! Nothing can match the color of the water and the beach here. Great Spring Break for our family.

This was our second trip to Turks, fist time at Footprints and it won’t be our last. We have been fortunate to visit many beaches and there are none better than Grace Bay. Getting to Turks and Caicos is very easy and we were at the villa within 40 minutes of landing, including customs and getting our rental car.

The Villa. We traveled with a group of friends and found the Villa to be very clean, spacious and accommodating. The layout was well thought out and the communal living spaces were large enough to accommodate a group of 10 adults. We spend every evening in the comfortable large outdoor living space. Outdoor speakers could be controlled through an iPhone – highly recommend fun playlists! We didn’t expect the amenities and level of details (cleaning, laundry, etc). The staff was courteous and discreet.

The Beach. It is literally steps away from the backdoor and it is fabulous. Eugene would set up beach chairs, umbrellas and ice down the cooler every morning. He’d return mid-afternoon to see if we needed beer or ice and again in the evening to bring in the chairs. Footprints set-up is better than a 5-star hotel, with regard to beach access and ease.

The Food. Nadine, the chef, was OUTSTANDING. We told her our general preferences and she took care of everything else – planning, shopping, preparing and clean-up. Every single meal was delicious and Nadine was helpful in getting us reservations when we enjoyed dinner away from the villa. Fresh coconuts and coconut water were readily available on the property.

Restaurants. We dined at Lupo, Coyaba, Mango Reef and Coco Bistro. Would highly recommend each but for different reasons. And, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you about Melt. They sell coffee by day and yummy desserts and cocktails at night. DeDe, the mixologist, is a hoot.

Highly recommend taking a cruise with Captain Brian with Kenard Cruises. We did a charter – FUN FUN FUN. Bring a playlist!

Back again!

Fourth time here, just can't get enough of the villa, the location, the owner, the chef, the beach ++++

Lots of friends with us this time and the villa is really suited to this, plenty of space to get together but also for privacy. Chef was superb. Just working out how I can convince the owner to sell it to me for free!

Truly amazing in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled the world and this is our 3rd time to the Turks & Caicos. This was by far the best experience in any rental home or hotel. All the positive reviews you read are 100% accurate. The staff from the caring chef, housekeeper and grounds crew take care of everything. It is like staying at a 5 star hotel but in your own private house. The beach is the best in Providenciales. House is very comfortable, even nicer than the pictures! We stayed with 4 kids and 3 adults and there was room to spare. We certainly hope to be back soon. Thanks Cally for an amazing experience!

Superb - again!

  • 5 of 5

Third time to this heavenly villa placed on a heavenly beach. And we're going back later this year! You can rightly assume that we adore this place. The rooms are fabulous, all styled differently and very, very clean. Kitchen and dining room are the centre of the house for eating whatever the brilliant chef comes up with. She'll happily adapt to whatever you need so no problems there.

The outside of the house is right, and I mean right on the beach - just a few steps down from the end of the garden to the Best Beach In The World. Turn left for the laid back restaurants, turn right for a huge heap of nothing but beautiful sand, fish, pelicans, shells ++++. We walked that way every single day and saw something different.

Miss this place so much. Want to live there all the time!

Best vacation ever! We were a party of 5 couples. It was like being at home with a beach right out the door. In hind site this is one thing I would do. I would ship all my wine and achocol, and my snacks, like peanut butter and crackers, etc. it is quite expensive to go out for meals. The Chef was awesome! She made our whole trip! Very special lady💗

Our couples had an outstanding time. We would definitely go back! Worth every penny.

Best beach house ever

  • 5 of 5

Without question, this was the best beach trip ever. We were a group of 4 couples, which this house was the perfect size for our group. The interior of the house has a great layout, is very nicely decorated, and is in pristine condition. The outdoor space is also very well laid out and manicured. We spent a lot of time eating and drinking outside, and in the pool. It is awesome to have the beautiful beach within steps of the house. Because there are nothing but houses to the right and left, it is essentially a private beach. The staff did a magnificent job of keeping the property spotless, on a daily basis. They have their own beach chairs and umbrellas with this property, and the staff sets them up every morning. The staff are very friendly

But, I didn't even discuss the best part of the stay here: Chef Nadine. She is an amazing chef. Every meal was delicious. You can choose from a list of meals for her to prepare. Once we ate our first amazing dinner, we quickly realized that the best thing to do is for her to cook whatever she chose. We told her to cook her favorite dishes, basically surprise us, instead of us planning the meals. She delivered excellent meal, one after the other. We had one guest who doesn't eat seafood, and she prepared a separate dish for this person, if the main meal consisted of seafood. The icing on the cake is that they do all of the cleaning as well. She also did the grocery shopping.

I would say 8 adults with no kids is the most you would want to stay here; you could maybe do 10 adults if the 5th couple would be ok with sleeping in the 5th bedroom which have bunkbeds. 6 adults and 6 kids would be doable, since you could put 4 kids in the bunk room ( those bunk beds are extra long, and can put two kids feet-to-feet on the bottom bunk and on the top bunk)

As Footprints fronts onto Grace Bay Beach, if you choose to enjoy a boat charter, many of the companies on island know the villa and can collect from the villa's beach. Great for snorkeling, fishing trips, paragliding etc. Just ask us for recommendations.
