About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Channel House: few homes in the world are as unusual and magical. Set in 2 acres of mature tropical gardens and 20 yards from the turquoise waters of the beach, this house was one of the early, old houses of Providenciales. Built in the traditional Bermudian style it is set high up 12 ft above ground level allowing superb views out over the waters of Leeward Going Through. The feeling is of living in a tree house which is accentuated by an enclosed verandah which wraps around the entire house, fully netted, letting the breezes in and keeping the bugs out. This is a natural and effective air conditioning system allowing the occupants to live and sleep in comfort.

Relax on the comfortable upper terrace with its wonderful sea views or stretch out in the sunshine on the patio area down by the private pool and absorb the beauty and the sounds of the tropical gardens.

The wave action is gentle in the Channel and this, together with the long stretch of white, powdery sand makes a lovely beach for swimming, sunbathing and beach combing.

As the house is situated opposite the Princess Alexandra Nature Reserve the bird life is amazing: watch the pelicans cruise past, listen to the terns calling and catch a glimpse of the osprey flying by feeding its young. A true paradise.

About The Owner

As soon as we set eyes on Channel House we fell in love with it. Hidden behind overgrown trees it was falling apart, bug ridden and desperately in need of attention. Imagine our surprise when we found it was for sale - we had to buy it! And so began an ongoing project which, at times, has proved to be quite a challenge; but we have never regretted the decision to purchase the house and love it dearly.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Providenciales

The location, for us, was perfect. We wanted somewhere private, on the sea and with enough land to allow us to make a tropical garden. The Channel House fulfilled all these criteria.

What makes this house unique

Staying at the property is, for us, a total break from the freneticism of our lives here in the UK. The house is incredibly peaceful and we can totally relax.

Channel House

  • 5 of 5

Four couples stayed at the Channel House for one week in January. We all had a wonderful time. The house suited all of us perfectly. We had the ocean, the pool, the kayak, a well appointed kitchen, many seating areas and tables, a large deck overlooking the ocean.

We enjoyed privacy but we were also close to the Grace Bay tourist area.

Wish we could have stayed longer in such beautiful surroundings.

charming beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your charming beach cottage with us. We came from snowy, cold Montreal (and Toronto) and

had a wonderful time soaking up the sun and feeling the breeze on your deck. Looking out at that turquoise water is something you

just never tire of. The is one of the best holidays we have ever had and certainly the most relaxing.

The time and effort that you spent restoring your cottage is apparent wherever we looked. You did a remarkable job as I am sure it was

challenging in an island environment.

Julian and Dinesh did a thorough job welcoming us and guiding us during our stay.

Looking forward to going back!!!

Channel House - Charm, Beachfront and Views

  • 5 of 5

We were immediately charmed by this spacious and endearing home on the beach! This home is nicer than the website photos and is perfect for those who prefer character and comfort with wooden floors, high ceilings, thoughtful furnishings, Caribbean art and direct beach access.

Channel House is built high to take advantage of the cooling, tropical breezes; we did not need the air conditioning. We enjoyed the many comfortable sitting areas where you can enjoy the water view of the channel, the outdoor pool area and the luscious gardens surrounding the house. The screened-in, wrap around deck allowed us to better enjoy early and evening hours, and we appreciated the flat screened Cable TV in the evenings.

Long beach walks were a daily treat. You can leave barefoot from the house and walk up the beach along Leeward Going Through and around the point to the 12 mile Grace Bay. We took the kayak to explore the island across the channel and through the canal system behind the house in Leeward.

This is a delightful house, built in a private and peaceful location, but an easy drive to two marinas, restaurants, shops and grocery stores. We cannot wait to return to this enchanting home!

Thoroughly delighted!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Channel House in early January. It was a wonderful location for our active (teenage) family to explore the many things that Providenciales has to offer. The water sports, beaches, restaurants, and of course the reefs. We were delighted with the natural state of the island, all the sea life, and the friendly, welcoming and laid back vibe. But more than that, the Channel House and gardens were beautiful, comfortable and inspiring. We felt quite lucky to have stayed there.

Burnett (London, UK)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful and comfortable house with a party of friends for a week, and had a terrific time. In an outstanding location, with stunning sea views and direct access to an almost 'private' beach, the house is surrounded by a large mature garden full of palms and flowering shrubs that give a sense of peace and seclusion - but not of isolation, being only 10 minutes by car to the shops and restaurants of Grace Bay. The Channel House really does give you the best of both worlds, and though we wished we could have stayed longer, in just one week we were able to see and do so much in this amazing place. We absolutely loved it

Two week stay at the Channel House in July

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Channel House for two weeks and had two groups of family come in for a week at a time. We absolutely loved the house and location was perfect for our expectations. We are seasoned island travelers and have done all the resort vacations and was looking for something more quiet with beautiful beaches and quiet atmosphere and this is what we got with this house. Keep in mind the house does get a little warm without AC in the main house but you get used to it as the house has excellent airflow from the water. It was bulit for airflow. You must have a car to get to the store and basically anywhere but it's all a short drive. The beach outside of the house is great and very quiet in regards to people. It is a channel so you get the occasional boat traffic but we didn't really notice it. Across from the channel is a park with a short canal which is great for kayaking.

I could go on and on but I can recommend this house as I don't think you will be dissapointed.
