Queen Bed + Luxurious Stanley Day Bed KitchBathBBQ - Sleeps
This Caribbean Guest Cottage features an Open Concept design with Queen Size Bed, Vaulted wood beam ceiling, and two patio door walkouts. One patio door leads to the screened in porch with separate entrance and outdoor relaxation. The other Patio Door leads to the barbecue/grill deck off the kitchen. The screened in porch has a view of Flowering Shrubs (Beauganvalie & Hibiscus), Palm Trees, Mahogany Trees & other Mature Trees to provide a shaded area to relax on the Hammick or put you feet up on the Ottoman while sitting in our South Beach Chairs in the garden.
The interior features vaulted caribbean wood beamed ceilings painted white, 12 x 12 Italian Porcelain Tiles throughout. Decorated by an interior designer for Optimum functionality. The Studio Bedroom has a Double Closet with a Queen Size Bed. We recently moved the half wall to the left 16" to make room on each side of the bed, to have a night stand. So it is no longer pushed against the half wall with the white shelving unit. We had the same tiles left over so it is finished to perfection. The TV Area has a Luxurious Stanley Day Bed with lots of Throw Pillows, An Ottoman & a trundle drawer underneath with 3 compartments for you clothes. Their is a High Quality Twin Mattress on the Day Bed and 26' Flat Screen TV with DVD player mounted over the Fridge in the Corner so that you can watch it from the bedroom area, the Daybed Area or while prepping in the kitchen. The Kitchen has white cabinets, gorgeous black, gold & silver granite countertop, undermount sink with a modern Moen Faucet with Sprayer, large fridge with freezer, stove with 4 burners, an oven & broiler, toaster oven, coffee maker, tea kettle, blender, microwave, pots and pans, cutlery, dishes, mugs and glasses.
We just updated the bathroom with wall to wall 8 x 16" White Ceramic Tiles from the floor to the ceiling. Then we added a 4" Cobalt Blue Accent Band horizontally around the room, through the shower and window sill. We installed "no slip" cobalt blue mini tiles on the floor of the shower. Easy to keep clean, bright and gorgeous.
White bath towels, hand towels, facecloths and High Quality White linens provided.
We also installed a new Screened In Porch System, new window screens and sliding screen doors.
Weber Spirit Barbecue with Cast Iron Skillet in the middle. Also propane tanks provided. There is also a full spare.
White Igloo Cooler, Fashionable Beach Towels for you to use on the property or in the rental car to the beach or just exploring. We recommend keeping you cooler full of water & gatorade at minimum, with a bag of ice, so you can keep hydrated all day long & save money. They sell 24 & 32 size water bottles at IGA & Gatorade in many different sizes. They also sell Beer, Coolers, Alcohol, Wine & Spirits at the IGA, just not on Sunday. I recommend the Wine Cellar Store in between the IGA and Sweet Escape for better prices on Beer, Alcohol, Wine & Spirits. There is also a TCI Island Brewery who make Turks Head Beer and sell it for approx $33 for a case of 24. They also sell Rum for approx $14 for a 26er. However, I prefer the local Bambarra Rum that they sell at the Wine Cellar & IGA. It has a really nice flavour and they use it to make the Island's Amazing Rum Cake. They have two different sizes and they make great gift idea's. You can purchase them at FOTTAC in the Regent Plaza, at the Wine Cellar or the Departure Lounge at the PLS Airport. They make an amazing Jerk Spice, West Indian Mustard & Guava Jam as well. They have a Gold Rum, Silver Rum, Reserve Rum & more.
We can arrange a Jeep or SUV Rental, Seadoo 3 seater PWC or a 21 foot Wahoo Centre Console Boat Rental Available at an additional cost!
There is a 2 Bedroom Villa on the property at an additional rate see VRBO # 271855 for details.

About Kate & Joselyn
My family and I have been enjoying the good life in the Turks and Caicos Islands since 1986. We are avid Scuba Divers and water sports enthusiasts. You will love the Turks and Caicos. I feel completely safe driving around in the Jeep with the top down 24 hours a day. The Grocery Store has everything you will ever need and the Restaurants are 5 Star. The beaches are rated among the best in the world and ocean is beautiful and clean. Your feet will love our white sand beaches and your body will love floating in the Ocean. The high salt content makes it very buoyant. Soak up the sun and enjoy our incredible sunsets.
Kate & Joselyn purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Kate & Joselyn chose Discovery Bay
This is such a peaceful oasis! The canal is great for swimming and we love laying on the dock at night with a glass of wine and looking at the stars! The Canal leads to the south side of the island so we can park a boat at the dock. High elevation and nice tropical breeze. We love the architecture of the Wood Beamed Ceiling and Wrap around screened in Porch. We are in the Real Estate, Scuba Diving, Watersports and Hospitality Industries and love the location in central Provo, it is close to everything by car. Quick jot to airport, turtle cove marina, IGA, Grace Bay Beach, Nikki Beach in Leeward or Chalk Sound Sapidilla Bay Beach, Long Bay Beach, The Conch Shack Beach, or Malcolm Beach and so on. There is lots to see and do. We arrange airport transportation to the Villa where Wayne or Jocelyn will greet you and show you around the property. We will be happy to answer your questions prior to your arrival and during your stay.

Perfect place for us
My husband, 4 year old son and I stayed in the cottage for a week and had a wonderful time! Joselyn is very helpful and there if you need her. We love having a washer and dryer because it cuts down on the luggage we have to bring. The bed was comfortable. We cooked on the grill every day. It was the perfect size for the 3 of us. We never felt unsafe, which was something I was concerned about. The house has a safe too. We also rented the Jeep and did a lot of exploring around the island. One of our favorites was Pirates Cove and Bonefish Beach (same location). Getting there took a long time but it was part of the adventure. We would definitely stay here again!
Small cottage, but nice and clean with lots of extras and in a good location
The cottage was very clean upon our arrival. We appreciated the nice beach and bath towels as well as the kitchen extras (foil, spices, etc). If you are a chef, you may be disappointed in the quality of the pots and pans; a few were dented and had the non-stick coating worn off a bit; but they were fine for the limited cooking we did (pasta and jar sauce, burritos, pancakes, etc). We also appreciated the beach chairs and cooler. The washing machine was nice to have and in great condition. The owner has done a nice job of cleaning up the property after the hurricanes. The only negative for us was that the cottage was tight. I do understand that the owner plans to make a change to the closet situation in order to make it easier to maneuver around the bed, but it is still a small space, overall. We were actually able to visit the cottage briefly prior to booking, so I knew the size; it just wasn't until we were there a while that we thought it was a little small! The two of us were ok in there for 9 nights, but in my opinion, it would be difficult to spend any longer than a few nights with 3 or 4 people in there. Also, there is only seating for 2 to eat a meal so if you are planning to come with 3 or 4, you should keep that in mind. Speaking of seating - the table and chairs are on a lovely screened porch. We spent a lot of time out there. The place was reasonably priced and in a good location, mid-island. Overall, the pros certainly outweigh the cons and we would stay again!
Thanks for taking the time to right a review. Good News, I brought brand new pots n pans with me two days after you departed. It was on my short list. The Guest Cottage is only meant for 2-3 Adults or 2 Adults and a Child or 1 Adult and 2 children. We have had many repeat guests stay in the cottage for 5 weeks at a time. Once you get to know the price of accomadations in Providenciales you soon realize what a great bargain Sweet Escape Villa & Guest Cottage really are. We have 3 - 2 Bedroom Villa's on the island that sleep 6 to 8 people. If you want a larger space I am sure you would enjoy any of them. Of course the price for a 2 bedroom Villa would be twice the price of the Guest Cottage for a week. As I mentioned once the new high end closet system is installed it will open up the space. All of our repeat guests receive a $100 of thier next stay whether it is a 2 bedroom villa or the cottage. We are glad you appreciated all the work that we have done since the hurricane the brand new gate is beautiful. We are very pleased with our team, they worked hard to manicure the grounds before December and all the new palm trees, flowering shrubs and fruit trees are growing fast in our beautiful weather.
We hope to see you again next year. Katherine, Joselyn & The Sweet Escape Team
Cute little cottage
My husband and I stayed here for 7 days and it was perfect, the property was clean and well maintained, Jocelyn was also very helpful and accommodating.
Dear Jennifer & Keith - It was a pleasure meeting you and we appreciate you choosing to stay at Sweet Escape Guest Cottage during you January escape to Turks & Caicos. All repeat guests receive a $100 discount on any future stays so we hope to see you again. Cheers, Katherine, Joselyn & The Sweet Escape Team
Book This Property - The Best Way To Discover Turks and Caicos
We stayed at this property 3 times now, It is clean, spacious, has everything you need and is located close to everything. The host is wonderful and will make sure your stay in Providenciales is the best vacation you will ever have. We were welcomed with the islands favourite beer and rum punch even virgin punch for the kids! The best way to discover this island is to explore not stay on a resort, there are so many restaurants, beaches (we went to a different one each day) shops and you have the option of going to a resort for the day if you want. Being located on the canal gives you the option of using the many water toys at a fraction of the cost of those at the resorts. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the kitchen has everything you need the grocery store is just around the corner and being able to go to the fish fry on Thursday night was perfect. If you are thinking of travelling to the Turks and Caicos check to see if this property is available first!
Dear Dana & Warren,
Thank you for reflecting back on your stay at Sweet Escape Villa & Guest Cottage. It is always a pleasure to see you and your family. Thanks for also introducing your freinds to the property meaning Connie and family. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and we will see you again soon.
Katherine, Jocelyn & The Sweet Escape Team.
Wonderful cottage that fit our needs very well. Considering our visit was about six weeks after hurricane Irma came to visit the grounds and cottage was beautiful. Thank you Katherine and Josephine.
Dear David & Kathy - Thank you for choosing to stay at Sweet Escape Guest Cottage this November. We appreciate meeting you both and look forward to seeing you next year. Wishing you & your family an amazing Holiday Season & Happy New Year. Cheers, Katherine, Joselyn & The Sweet Escape Team.
Fantastic place fantastic stay
No trip is without hiccups but it is not always about how it begins it's about how it ends. We had a few but they all worked out in the end.
With that said.....What a great week we had at this Villa. With all the extras this property offers it's a win win! We usually do all inclusive but the prices were way to high and visiting the island by renting a home allows you to REALLY enjoy the island. We brought food with us bought our other needs at the grocery store and toured this amazing island.
The island has recently had some bad PR and its too bad because this is the place to go and you can most certainly visit and make it an affordable trip. You just have to be creative to pull it off .
Although we never met Kate , Joselyn was a pleasure and was always a phone call away. I would suggest an alarm system if the bad Pr continues.
When we go back and we will it will be with this property owner. Thanks again for an eventful amazing week

Fully fenced with a Gated Entrance. Lovely cobalt blue planters with flowering beaugonvalia, lined with coconut palm trees creating a beautiful tropical oasis. We have recently replaced the Love Seat with an amazing Stanley O/S Day Bed in White Wood. It has a twin mattress & a trundle drawer in the bottom which can also be swapped out for a 2nd Twin Mattress. We moved the 1/2 wall with bookshelves left 18", added a new nightstand on each side of the bed. We moved the TV over the Fridge with an adjustable arm so you can watch TV from either the Queen Bed, Day Bed or kitchen. Air Conditioning is metered, based on usage. However, we have included the 1st $35 per week in the Rate you Pay to confirm your reservation. We read the meter before & after your stay. If you go over by $5 we not charge you for the overage of AC. We have never had to charge anyone for the overage. The Cottage is well built and insulated, plus the $35 is the average we have recorded. I personally find turning the ac on, plus turning the fans on, helps me fall into a much deeper sleep.
