About the property

3 Bed, 3 Bath - Sleeps 6 - Private Property on 6.5 Acres Providenciales

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.

About Beth and Larry Sulak

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 Beth and Larry Sulak chose Providenciales

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of five had a great time! This is our 4th trip to TCI. The location is amazing — right on Grace Bay and so close to wonderful snorkeling spots! That helped to meet the needs of my husband (loves to snorkel), my kids (love the sand and swimming AND THE POOL), and me (who would be pretty happy anywhere on TCI). Was the house as updated as other places we have stayed? no. Were the views amazing? Yes! Did it allow us to be here as a family? Yes! We would definitely come back! Thanks so much for the help with the minor house issues! Thanks so much for the great stay and opportunity to be here!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on 9-20 for a very overdue family vacation. Linda was very welcoming and gave us a ton of info about the area and also all the amenities of the main house before she left. We also met Edson our first day and were immediately in love with him. Our first night and second nights were uneventful and we slept well. We went to the fish fry Thursday evening and had an absolute blast being around tons of locals as well as other tourists. The food is spectacular and inexpensive compared to some of the other places on the island. We went home, and after some great family time on the west patio, we all turned in for the night. About 4:30 that morning the alarm went off and we all came jumping out of bed. The security company called almost immediately and we told them what had happened and they arrived within 10 minutes to check things out. They did not find anything, and we all went back to bed for a bit. We got back up about 7 and after breakfast as we were headed out to Chalk Sound for the day, we noticed the screen had been cut near the front entry way - so we immediately contacted Linda and Alfonzo - who came to the house within about 30 minutes. They also found some palm prints on one of the bedroom sliding doors where someone had apparently tried to slide it open. So, for the remainder of our trip - Edson was our bodyguard and property patrol - he was up all night long making rounds of the property and when he would see that we were up, he would go to bed. This helped us feel more secure, as my daughter and son-in-law's bedroom was the one that they had tried to get into - and she was pretty upset about it, as would be expected. We had no more issues with this the entire time we were there.

The house is wonderful - the view from the front room takes your breath away - having a laundry onsite it WONDERFUL! We were next door at Beach House nearly every day of our stay - letting "The Sherminator" take care of our needs. They were so gracious in letting us use their beach chairs and water equipment. Since we went in the off-season, no place was ever very busy. Some of the restaurants close for renovations, so we were sad that we couldn't take the kids to Heminway's or Coco Bistro, but we did eat at Mango Reef, Tiki Hut, Sharkbite, and Baci. Also Giggles ice cream! :)

Take lots of money - as groceries are ridiculous. But you will NEVER see water this color anywhere else in the world! So it's worth it!

Glorious!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG did we ever luck out booking this place. The location is perfect for groceries, shopping, activities, and fabulous restaurants. Yet completely private such that no one knew we were even here. We always like trying new places but we will never be able to top this. The views are fabulous, the house comfortable and, again, the location prime. I would like to make this an annual trip. Never be able to top this

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Camilla on the Beach. We pride ourselves to be one of the last remaining 6 acre beachfront property on the serene side of Grace Bay. I am happy you took time to explore the island, enjoy the Fish Fry and of course the snorkelling. We are also happy that the privacy and quietness, yet close to hotels on either side fit the bill. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you and your friends another time. Team Camilla

Nice Place with some unexpected issues

  • 3 of 5

Our family of four booked the Beachfront Villa for a week in July. Linda was great with check-in and orientation. The house is airy and roomy and inviting. Kitchen stocked well and gas grill works great. Easy 2 minute walk to the beach and a reef just off to the right of the property when you reach the beach that has good snorkeling. There is a gardener/handyman (Edson) on duty from 7-6 that is very helpful. Pool was always very clean. Overall a great place and a great setting. Our issue was we had an unexpected visitor on our third night. There is an alarm in the house and can be set while you are sleeping, and it was set that night. I was awoken just before 5am to some sound, and upon a second noise, jumped out of bed and upon hearing a noise saw movement near the door to my right, where the screen had been cut open and windows removed. i ran to the door and hollered at man as he ran off with a towel over his head and carrying stolen items. We called 911 and the security company and the property manager. The police showed up around 15-20 minutes later. Then the security company and the property manager with other security people arrived. Overall not a huge deal, petty crime is everywhere in the world (beach towels, shoes, fishing shirts stolen since he did not get fully inside), but left us unsettled for the rest of the trip. I do wonder what would have happened if the intruder had made it all the way in the house and then I confronted him and his knife. With two kids asleep in the next room it is scary. The alarm system should have gone off and scared him off but for some reason it did not trigger. The property manager Linda did put on night security for the rest of our trip from 6pm-6am.

On the 6th night of our trip the alarm in the guest house went off at 7am. The security company called us and asked me to go look to see if the second property was OK. It was light so I did get out of bed and check the place out and it was OK. On our last night of our stay, the guest house alarm went off at 6am waking us again. No phone calls this time, and no visits either. The one good thing is the alarm shuts off after 10 minutes.

T&C is a great place, their people very friendly (most of them), we will go back as the diving is great, not sure where we would stay next time, maybe a condo or subdivision.

Owner's Response: Thank you for vacationing at Villa Camilla and your kind compliments of Linda and Edson; we are happy that you enjoyed the island, the house's location and amenities and your desire to return to the Turks and Caicos. We are concerned with the note of an outside intruder. This for us is of great concern as well as to the TCIG police department, who have now taken a keen role in patrolling private villas and hotel areas. While there are no heinous crimes, petty stealing of towels, snorkel gear etc is just a nuisance and since most villas have large grounds, beautiful landscaping and on the beach (our way of life for the past 32 years with no issues) we have taken other security steps to ensure the safety and comfort of all our guests. We are happy that the nightly guard service allowed you a peace of mind. Thank you for following the House Rule of always setting the alarm when leaving the villa or retiring to bed. We continue to welcome guests to Camilla who have had no such incident as you can see in our many reviews and we hope this will be settling for other visitors to our home on the beach and in the sunshine. Warm island regards, TCI Blue Ltd - Property Managers

Amazing value for a private beach house

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bedroom with en-suite bathrooms, super high ceilings, ceiling fans and windows galore was perfect for the 4 of us. We were looking for a week of relaxation and that's exactly what we got. Even better, we didn't need the air conditioning and were able to enjoy beautiful breezes coming through the house while we hung out or slept. This is a beautifully decorated home with a fully stocked kitchen, upstairs deck with ocean sunset view, private swimming pool, no noise, private path to the beach and best of all, completely secure and safe. Thank you for an amazing week. You've spoiled us for future rentals!

Turquoise gem

  • 5 of 5

Villa Camilla is located on the most beautiful stretch of the most gorgeous beach in the world, far down from any large hotels. The water color is intense turquoise. The villa takes its cue from the water and uses the same color throughout. It is vibrant, warm and comfortable. The grounds are lush; the bedrooms quite adequate and nicely decorated with touches of island art. Perfect for a family or two or three couples who like the convenience of a well-equipped kitchen rather than eating always in a hotel or restaurant for every meal.

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.
