Property description

At last, you've discovered a Slice of Paradise perched directly on 325 feet of World Famous Grace Bay Beach. Set amongst more than 6 acres of 25-year-old tropical gardens Camilla on the Beach aka Villa Camilla is one of the largest and last remaining Private BEACHFRONT properties along this 12-mile stretch of Grace Bay. Your back yard is the beach and your neighbours are boutique to high end resorts as well as local eateries and flora.

It is Endless Summer at Camilla on The Beach, sun-filled interiors with splashes of bold turquoise, orange, yellow and blue Caribbean colours throughout. Slow your pace, indulge your dreams and float in crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Turks and Caicos islands. One of the largest coral reef that begins to the left is loaded with colourful tropical fish, turtles, rays, beautiful coral and sponges. Don your mask and snorkel in glorious Princess Alexandra Marine Park.

The Villa boasts 3 spacious appointed bedrooms. Bedroom #1 has a four piece king size bed, en suite bathroom, TV, AC, ceiling fan, a wall of sliding glass doors towards the pool and a pool and garden view. Bedroom #2 has two twin beds that can also be made up as a king bed, a wall of sliding glass doors with a garden view, AC, ceiling fan and en suite bathroom. Bedroom #3 has two twin beds that can also be made up as a king, AC, ceiling fan and en suite bathroom with sliding doors to the private deck and garden. Crib rentals are available for families with young children.

For additional sleeping, also consider renting one or both of Camilla's Beach Houses which have one bedroom/one bath units that sleep 2 to 4.. See VRBO property #335410

A wrought iron spiral staircase leads to the spacious second story living room, dining room, kitchen and decks. The design of the home has the Entertainment area on the Upper floor overlooking the ocean while all the bedrooms are on the Pool level. On reaching the top of the staircase, you cannot help but gasp at the beautiful view. Khaki coloured sea grass dots low rolling dunes accented by a wide, brilliantly white -sand beach.

If you would like to experience having your own private chef take care of you while you are on holidays or to prepare a meal, please ask the property manager about the chefs' contact information. This expense is not included in the rental price.

Pool and Beach: Totally Private and Exclusive to the Main House only! A Solar Heated Pool 30 ft long is nestled in the gardens and sits between the Villa and the Beach, giving full privacy from beach goers. The majestic mahogany trees and coconut palms provide some shade for sunbathing and relaxing. There is a shallow section of the pool perfect for wading.

Air conditioning: Though the trade winds and ceiling fans typically keep the villa at a comfortable temperature, air conditioning is available in each of the bedrooms. To encourage conservation, air conditioning is metered separately and charged back to guests at prevailing electricity rates.

Providenciales (often Provo locally is an island in the northwest Caicos Islands, part of the Turks and Caicos Islands, a British Overseas Territory. The island has an area of 98 km2 (38 sq mi) and a 2012 Census population of 23,769. Providenciales is the largest island in population, the third largest in area, and is home to a large majority of the population of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The island is served by the Providenciales International Airport. Providenciales was ranked the best beach destination in the world by TripAdvisor in 2011.

Located in an eastern crook of Providenciales, Grace Bay has 12 miles of soft ashen sand and open crystalline water to placate sunbathers. There's little shade, so come early in the morning to get your choice of umbrellas. Some of the island's most well-liked restaurants are sheltered along Grace's shore, as are the most popular hotels.

Recent travelers recommend snorkeling at Bight Reef. Snorkel equipment can be rented off the beach at the Coral Gardens resort or arrange a day sail or tour. Grace Bay is a public beach that's open all hours of the day, every day of the week.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We first came to TCI in February, 1985 just after the first road was built from the airport to the newly opened Club Med. Up until then, we'd always felt that there were so many beautiful Caribbean islands that there was no reason ever go to the same island twice. Providenciales changed all that! By the end of our visit, we were already planning a return in June. It was then that we realized that we had to own a piece of this beautiful island. Nowhere had we seen such beautiful turquoise water, sand as fine as sugar, or such friendly people. These same things have kept us returning for more than 25 years!

Why the Owner Chose The Bight Settlement, Turks and Caicos Islands:
Location on 325 feet of Beachfront, Privacy, Large property 6 acres, now close to amenities dining, shopping, bars, not so 25 yrs ago :) Though purchased in 1990 we have upgraded over the years making it a charming beachfront retreat, not too many frills but just enough.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love the space and privacy that Villa Camilla gives us as well as the short walk -- 1 minute -- across our property to the beach with the best snorkeling just next door. The villa is set among 6 acres of mature tropical gardens and we have 325' of beachfront at our doorstep! We always feel that the stretch of beach in front of Villa Camilla is reserved only for us and for guests at Villa Camilla, even though all beaches on Provo are public. We love wandering through the garden seeing what's in bloom at the moment-- wild orchids, beach plum, cactuses, different palms. And because of the greenery around us, we're a magnet for birds, including humming birds. Breakfast and lunch on the deck are wonderful, but nothing compares to watching the sunset from the west desk with rum punch in hand! Then if we're not cooking that night, it's off to one of Provo's many excellent restaurants, none more than a 5 to 10-minute drive away.
