Overview

About the property

1 B.R. (Queen) plus Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, Full Kitchen & Living/Dining

This deluxe 1-bedroom condo on stunning Grace Bay, cited by Conde Nast as the most beautiful beach in the world, will have you coming back year after year. The twelve miles of beach and warm turquoise waters, breathtaking sunsets, and the sense of a stress free stay, has the Turks & Caicos rated a number one vacation destination.

As an Executive Chef, I want you to have a great dining experience, so we do recommend trying the off site local hotspot restaurants, including the Mango Reef, Coyoba, PAVILION at the Somerset, and many others!

We provide our guests with a lovely & complimentary welcome basket. Bountiful Rum Punch Cocktails , as well as Breakfast Groceries for your stay! This is a MAJOR bonus, and will get you out on that beach all that much faster upon arrival.

You will find this unit roomy, comfortable, and accommodating. The unit is still like new, and just sparkles with extra touches. Whether you go to the local IGA grocery store not far from the property and play 'Iron Chef' for your stay, or dine at one of the many fine local and easy to get to eateries for a gourmet delight, you will be equally happy.

All of this at about one third of what you would spend if booked elsewhere.

Book a deep sea fishing trip, parasail, do some snorkeling or scuba, or visit the local horseman down the way for a romantic evening ride on the beach.....or, just do nothing and relax with that well deserved Pina Colada you have been yearning for! Either way, you will hope this vacation never ends!

We are so excited to be able to include so many extra amenities via the VIP CLUB, that are only offered when you book through VRBO. Not only are you getting a significant discount but you are also getting an improved experience by booking through us directly.

Lots of awesome perks and all beautiful new beach amenities, superior sports equipment, and yes...a "Beach Butler" to tend to your comfort while on the the most amazing beach in the world!

It's all a short flight away. From most areas the flights are non stop. The Turks and Caicos is perhaps the easiest Caribbean island to reach from the U.S., Canada, and England.

Contact us via email or telephone below, (we are on what's app!) and start getting excited about one of the most memorable vacations you will ever take.

The airport (PLS) offers a large open air check-in hall with the added convenience of self-serve kiosks, a fully enclosed and air-conditioned security checkpoint hall, new shops and boutiques, and an outdoor viewing terrace on the second floor of the airport.

About Elen Wright-Stead

Originally from New Jersey, my husband and I moved out to California many years ago as he is with the California Highway Patrol. We fell in love with the Turks and Caicos on a vacation in 2005 and decided we just had to have a piece of this paradise for our own!

Elen Wright-Stead purchased this condo in 2006

Why Elen Wright-Stead chose Grace Bay

We came in on the construction phase of this wonderful complex and saw it through to completion. Every step of the way, the builder, developer, and entire staff were wonderful and became like family to make us feel so welcome!

What makes this condo unique

The minute we got off that plane and heard the warmth of the steel drums, we knew we were in the best place possible for a relaxing vacation. Waking up each and every morning to the light sounds of the waves touching the sand and the balmy breeze is something that makes you really enjoy life!

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are reading this short note...You will not find a better equipped condo and better people to deal with. Ed & Elen's help with dining and all the things we could do as well as places to see, and making our stay comfortable were outstanding. They do what they say and are ready to help answer any questions you might have about the Great Island. When we go back and we will...our stay will be in # 3209 Alxeranda...a fabulous place with great food and personal ....Thank you again Elen...you're the BEST.

A big thanks to Elen on making these two newlyweds feel right at home! All the goodies & treats along with the proper advice & direction gave us the "at home comfort" feeling straight away. Great to stay at a place that matches perfectly to the sites pictures and information. For those needing a rental car, go with Grace Bay Rentals as it's the local rental agency. They're good because you have an option to drop off at any of their local branches. Coco Bistro (especially CocoVan), Opus, and Mango Reef are all solid choices for a proper dining experience. Try the Coconut cream pie at Coco Bistro... it's a must from my POV. The Golf Course is a blast for the days you're not snorkeling, scuba diving, or boating. It's a pro course on an island so you can play comfortably while still exemplifying golf etiquette. Danny Boi's is always a fun choice for some drinks & sports watching (families welcomed). And for some fridge shopping my wife & I can recommend three choices. For your gourmet/upscale items there is Graceway Gourmet. For your lesser Gourmet options you have the IGA. And if you just need some essentials at a very affordable price you have the SMART center (if you're lucky, you will have some locals selling fresh caught lobster at an extremely good value!). Everything else we figured out along the way- as is Island life. But Elen, another big thanks to you and your loved one for making my wife & I feel no pressure on our Honeymoon- We will be coming back!!! :)

Cheers,

Ryan & Neda

The condo was spotless well maintained and very we

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Alexandra on Sept 3. It is important to note that we were not looking for an "all-inclusive" but rather a nice place to stay, go to the beach as well as have the option to have breakfast/lunch in the condo or go out to dinner at the many dining areas close to the Alexandra. The condo was spotless and very well maintained and equipped with a very nice gift basket waiting for us. If you are looking for something similar, Elen and Ed's place is what you want.

What sets Elen and Ed apart from any owner/place we have EVER vacationed is that the week we stayed was also the week that Hurricane Irma hit the Turks and Caicos Islands. Based on the damage to the island as well as the airport we were not able to leave the island for almost a week after the storm. Elen and Ed allowed us to stay at their condo which was not damaged for no cost, even though their own home was damaged and they had to find a place to stay.

If you are looking for a beautiful place, that is owned by some wonderful people....this is place.

Beautiful, clean condo with fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

Elen and Ed are the best! We had the unfortunate experience of running into hurricane Irma AND Maria during our planned dates. As a result of Irma there were no planes on our original date so we pushed our arrival out 2 days and then we sadly had to leave after only 4 days on island because Maria was en route. Elen and Ed gave us the option to move our trip dates but we visit annually and would rather visit Turks in sub-optimal conditions than go anywhere else. Communication before, during and after our brief visit was amazing - they picked us up from the airport since taxis were not reliably running and they ensured we had as much comfort as possible given the conditions.

As far as the condo itself, it's perfect. All of the kitchen amenities you would need are there along with starters for dishwasher, washing machine, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. There were ice cubes all frozen and ready for us. Immaculately clean, comfortable and spacious.

We will be returning to use the rest of our vacation as work allows but we'd be renting from Elen and Ed again regardless. Wonderful, kind people. I'd recommend this unit to anyone looking to visit the beautiful Grace Bay Beach!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4. Two kids ages 7 & 1. Elen unit was perfect clean spacious and modern. She provides you with everything to start your vacation off right. We didn't have any issues using the hotel amenities and enjoyed the VIP beach section with butler service. Elen is a wealth of information and always available. Our flight was delayed so we arrived late got lost and her husband came to meet us. I would definitely recommend renting here and plan to be back soon. We loved Turks.

Cute propert that is very clean and very well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Elen and Ed were super nice and It was a nice surprise when they contacted us upon arrival to make sure we had landed and they gave us directions to the unit. They met us at the unit itself and walked us through the property showing us around and taking the time to answer any questions we had.

A great touch was they had nice little gift basket waiting for us which had breakfast items, snacks, juice and rum with rum punch mix.

Since we had visited the island several times before we had established some favorite restaurants and grocery routines so with the full kitchen and laundry made this super easy for us.

The big news at the Alexandria property is that it is going all inclusive but there's about 16 units that are not included so there's a few amenities that your not supose to have access too but we didn't find it to be any deal for us. Most all inclusive people we talked too complained that the restaurant constantly ran out of even common things and the drinks we super slow to get, small and watery.

The "VIP Club" Elen and the others are doing worked just fine for us. We had guaranteed chairs and umbrella each day along with a beach butler who will get you drinks and food if needed from a near by restaurant they've made arrangements with. The food was good but pricey but that's Provo.

The beach here was very nice and clean. I enjoyed the fact that you don't have a ton of boat traffic here compared to other places like corral gardens which we've stayed before. It's nice if you have kids to have a little quieter spot which is just what we got here.

Overall we enjoyed the property and would likely stay here again if we come back to Provo.
