About the property

YES OPEN AFTER IRMA-Queen Bed + Luxurious Stanley Day Bed KitchBathBBQ - Sleeps

YES WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS AFTER HURRICANE IRMA. WE WERE VERY LUCKY AT SWEET ESCAPE VILLA RENTALS IN PROVIDENCIALES TURKS AND CAICOS. FEEL FREE TO BOOK ONLINE OR INQUIRE WITHIN. GRACE BAY TOURIST AREA IS STILL BEAUTIFUL AND WITHIN A WEEK MOST RESTAURANTS, BEACH BARS, TOUR OPERATORS WILL BE READY TO SHOW YOU A GOOD TIME.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.

Thank YOU

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.

Explore the waters of TCI right from your dock down the canal to South Side Marina. Access to Cooper Jack Bay Beach, Long Bay Beach, Sapadilla Bay Beach, cut through Leeward and visit Little Water Cay Iguana National Park, Remote private beaches as far as Parrot Cay or Anchor off in Grace Bay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a beautiful property. My friend and went to Provo for a girls weekend on Mother's Day 2009. We rented the guest cottage and a Jeep. We travelled all around the island exploring. We bought groceries at IGA. We went for dinner at Grace Bay Club Grill, Mango Reef, Coco Bistro, Hemingways, The Conch Shack on Thursday Night, "The Full Moon Party" at Horse Eyed Jacks on Saturday Night, Ricky's Beach Bar on Sunday for Hobie Cat Sailing. We went Scuba Diving at Ocean Vibes with Wayne, Brigit, Kevin and Meghan and Riquez. We saw a hammerhead shark off French Cay. Unbelievable! 3 Spotted Eagle Rays swimming in formation off the wall at North West Point. Oceanvibles for all your diving needs. Great lunch and drinks provided. They also pick up from the guest cottage or your hotel. They also own Reef Peepers Glass Bottom Boat and Eagle Parasail. We made many friends and plan to come back early January with family and friends. The guest cottage and property are absolutley amazing. Perfect for 2. We went kayaking in the canal, watched the stars at night. Very peaceful. We made our breakfasts and lunches, packed our cooler, beach towel and bikini's and we were gone all day. Came back for a shower and went out all night. We cooked Lobster Tails one night on the barbecue mmmmmm melt in your mouth. Then we had lobster sandwiches to go the next day. We rented a car from Rent A Buggy which is right at Turtle Cove Drive and the Leeward Highway. They dropped us off at the airport.

We had an amazing stay at the Sweet Escape Guest Cottage. Our experience started months before with Katherine (the property owner), who was incredibly accommodating and professional, and worked with us to get the cottage and Jeep rental squared away despite some complex circumstances. Once we got here, Josie (the property manager) made us feel welcome and gave us an overview of the island. This is a perfect location if you're renting a car. Grace Bay is minutes away (with abundant public parking and access), as is the grocery store. The water in the back of the property is a great place to spend an afternoon--quiet, private, and fun. We cooked dinner most nights, which was very easy to do with the kitchen supplies provided as well as the propane grill on the front deck. The living space is well appointed, clean, and comfortable. Even though it feels close to the main house, the cottage is very private and you don't really notice the other occupants (if they're there). Katherine and Josie go above and beyond to make sure that you feel comfortable and safe on this property. We had an excellent stay and hope to come back sometime soon!

Fantastic place fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

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

Cozy Cottage on the Ocean + Convenient Location + Near Beaches + Equals - Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

As we drove up to Sweet Escape Villa & Guest Cottage the pictures on the internet came to life! The Property & Cottage are even better in Real Life. Of course, it is Paradise, the warm caribbean breeze just makes your body feel sooo healthy. There are beautiful mature Palm Trees, Tropical Trees, Flowering Beauganvalie & Hibiscus. The Cottage is very spacious & clean. The Caribbean Wood Beam Ceiling makes it feel bigger too, just loved the high ceilings & the ceramic tiles. The Bathroom has floor to ceiling 8 x 16 white bevelled ceramic tiles with a cobalt blue accent 1/2 way up the wall. They installed the small cobalt blue accent tiles onto the floor of the shower floor with a slip free surface. Perfect colour for a bathroom/shower combo. It has all new shiny silver faucets, shower head, taps & light fixtures, everything was sparkling clean. The Kitchen has a very nice black granite countertop with silver that sparkles in the light. It was well stocked with beautiful dishes, pots n pan, glasses, to-go travel mugs, plastic tupperware containers to help pack a lunch in the cooler provided. Katherine really thought of everything. There was a large assortment of spices, sea salt & pepper grinder, paper towel, napkins, sugar, coffee filters and we enjoyed a bag of Tim Horton's Coffee Beans Josie had left with a coffee grinder. There were also beautiful Guest Soaps, Shower Gel & Body Cream & a Blow Dryer. We used the Weber BBQ Grill alot. They sell amazing steaks at IGA and with the Montreal Steak Spice and a local Bambarra West Indian mustard we picked up at Fottac Store in Grace Bay. With a nice bottle of Red Wine from the Wine Cellar - they have a tasting bar and Jesus helped us choose the perfect wine - it is very close to the cottage. We took our dinner plates down to the dockside patio overlooking the canal. Oh my goodness, it is so beautiful. What a great place to dine & truly relax and enjoy paradise. Very private, romantic & peaceful. No distractions. Simply Amazing. We rented the Jeep and it was the perfect island vehicle. Josie showed us how to unhook the soft top over the vizor and hook it back up. It was so fun, we had such a great view. It is only 2 to 4 minutes to Grace Bay Beach where we snorkelled at Smith's Reef and in front of Somewhere Beach Cafe at Coral Gardens. All information Katherine provides in her brilliantly organized Guest Directory with driving directions to places. It made our trip so enjoyable! We did not want to leave, amazing!

Katherine and Josie were excellent to help us get settled and figure our way around TCI. This property is so lovely, and the bathroom was newly re-tiled. I'm looking forward to the possibility of returning! :) It was such a pleasure to stay here.

Also, feel free to upload some photos to our Facebook and you qualify for $100 off your next stay. Cheers, Katherine & Joselyn

Perfect Vacation home for small family

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this property! Katherine was THE MOST accommodating host I've ever dealt with. From the minute we reserved the cottage, to our departure, she and her staff were in tune to our needs. I traveled with my 16 year old daughter, oldest daughter and son in-law who have an 8 month old baby. I worked out perfectly there was already a pack-n-play at the property. The Cottage was clean, spacious and super convenient to our other family members who were staying at Turtle Bay. We can't wait to go back for a second visit!

SUMMER SPECIAL 15% OFF REG BASE RATE - BOOK NOW & SAVE while you explore the #1 Island in the World with the most amazing beach sand and clean clear ocean you've ever experienced while making Sweet Escape Guest Cottage your Home away from Home. COMPLIMENTARY KAYAKS & SUPS, SNORKEL GEAR & MORE. When you "email the manager" Katherine will respond with some very useful trip planning information about the Cottage, Property & Island to assist in your decision making. I will attach a guest directory with driving directions to our favourite island hot spots on all of the island's most beautiful beaches, a link to a map and a TOP 30 LIST, as well as give you payment options. 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.
