This stunning, brand new villa with 360 degree views over the neighboring Leeward waterway, sits just 5 minutes away from the ocean front. Villa Vivace offers comfortable accommodation for up to 6 adults.

Set within 0.85 acres of tranquil grounds and with a 42 feet boat dock, the villa features a large 30 x 15 feet outdoor swimming pool with a large private deck, which is ideal for sun-worshippers, whilst there is a covered terrace for when you’re looking for a quiet selected spot out of the sun.

Undoubtedly, one of the stand-out features of the property is its exquisite interior design which was personally overseen by the owner and interior designer, Gul Jenkins. All of the furnishings were hand-chosen to compliment one another and blend beautifully to create a comfortable and stylish home.

Villa Vivace is a gated residence situated in a very safe and friendly residential area. The property is also equipped with a monitored security system for added peace of mind.

Natural vegetation, bougainvilleas, and tropical plants feature throughout the villa's extensive grounds.


Villa Vivace is just 5 minutes from Pelican Beach, of the least crowded and most beautiful beaches on the island! Grace Bay Beach is just a 5-minute drive away.

About The Owner

Terry and Gul Jenkins live in London and discovered the idyllic islands of Turks and Caicos after traveling extensively throughout the Caribbean. They instantly fell in love with the island and promised one other that they would return in the future to build their dream home. Now several years later, they have built a beautiful holiday home they would like to share with others.

Terry is one of the UK’s foremost musicians, having worked with the likes of international superstars: Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Sarah Vaughan, Vic Damone, Robert Farnon, Nelson Riddle, James Last Band, Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Stephan Grapelli, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Royal Philharmonic 'pops' Orchestra and BBC TV Come Dancing. He has played in some of the most illustrious and iconic venues worldwide including Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and Caesar's Palace and also has a prolific recording background contributing to over 2,000 tracks. Terry spent over a decade touring with Tom Jones as his drummer and it was during this time that he met Gul in Barbados. They had a whirlwind romance and married in Tom’s hotel suite in Puerto Rico and, appropriately, he was their best man.

Gul started her career as a designer in Europe where she studied and trained after completing a Masters Degree. Her creativity and artistic flair have earned her recognition from a number of design and fashion houses. She later moved to interior design and her meticulous attention to detail is clearly evident throughout the design and décor of Villa Vivace.

Terry and Gul scoured the island to find the perfect location for their dream villa. It's idyllic waterside setting, proximity to the beautiful beaches and fantastic restaurants will ensure you have a vacation to remember for years to come.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Gul, I wanted to reach out to you and say thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. We were so impressed with how beautiful everything was and we are still in awe at all we saw and enjoyed. Julian did a wonderful job in making us very comfortable. The little extras like the beer in the fridge and chips and fruit set the tone for the whole week. He gave us very good information on all our questions and was a true joy to be around. Your recommendations were very high on our list as well. Dive Provo took very good care of us as well as Grace Bay Car rentals.We loved Somewhere's and have many pictures and memories from the whole experience. My family is still talking about our stay and it appears I will be contacting you again for another visit to your beautiful villa. Again, thank you for answering all of our questions and the direct phone call.

Have a wonderful day and I look forward to contacting you again in the near future.

Wonderful Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had a wonderful family vacation in this beautiful home in Provo! It was the most welcoming and pleasurable experience we have had in many years and on such a beautiful island. From the moment that we started booking Gul's home, to being greeted at the airport by Faye, (property management assistant), to arriving at Villa Vivace with flowers, beverages, snacks and fruit basket awaiting, until our day of departure, we enjoyed each moment we were there. The home was immaculate and everyone we met and dealt with during our vacation were friendly, accommodating and eager to serve. We made some great family vacation memories from our visit to TCI and look forward to visiting again.

Best of All Worlds!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Vivace was the perfect stay for a peaceful and tranquil vacation. My husband and I were seeking privacy and seclusion, yet my teens loved renting bikes for adventures into the nearby town to shop and ride to the beach. We couldn't have asked for nicer accomodations and this has been our 12th time to the island. It was immaculate and beautifully appointed. Reghi met us at the airport and quickly guided us to the Villa where lovely fresh flowers, fruit and snacks were awaiting our arrival. Gul and Faye were very easy to work with in arranging our rental. No more resorts for us! We will most certainly be returning to Villa Vivace.

Paradise in the Turks!

  • 5 of 5

What is there not to love about Villa Vivace. The location in Leeward is fantastic with a small shop in walking distance, the villa is situated on a canal and the beaches are a short drive away. The villa itself was perfect in layout, décor and amenities which all made for an unforgettable trip to the Turks. We will definitely be back.

Awesome holiday December 2016!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for our family. First time we have stayed in Leeward. Loved the home, pool, location. Great design for the entire family. Kitchen in a great open room, that opens to an expansive pool area. Kids loved the pool. Bathrooms were better than the pictures (only drawback is that, like most homes we have stayed in the Turks, hot water and water pressure are precious commodities). They were building a home next door and we didn't even notice. Great home, immaculate - will DEFINITELY be back.

Awesome Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Turks and we were very nervous about finding the right Villa. Villa Vivace was just perfect for us. The bedrooms were nice and spacious and I'm very picky about cleaning and this Villa was spotless. We were very impressed. Anytime we had a question we got a very quick response. It was a wonderful visit but Villa Vivace just made it perfect.

Our Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh time to Turks and Caicos and about or sixth time or seventh at villa vivace. It was our 30th wedding anniversary

When we arrived to the Villa Gul had flowers , Big basket of fruit and a bottle of wine what a beautiful surprise to start our vacation and celebrate 30 years . I have never worked with someone that was so pleasant to deal with

Met every need we had. The house is very clean the ground is well-maintained

This time it was just my husband and I a few years ago we brought her kids and grandkids and had a wonderful time there made lots of beautiful memories that will cherish forever .

It is so nice and quiet at this Villa . I think every time we go back we fall more in love with the island .we hired a private photographer to take pictures of us at Leeward beach which is one of my favorite beaches

The food stores are local enough that you can do with a short drive.

We decided to kind of eat more local this time instead of the hotel restaurants and we were so much more happier doing that Tiki hut is great for lunch or dinner

Great prices to

Say enough about gul ,she is just awesome to work with. So Friendly and understand everything that you're looking for in a vacation

If you're looking totally to disconnect from work I highly recommend this it has everything you need and then some with a beautiful private pool.

I wish I was there now

Gul, thank you once again for allowing us to use your villa

we can't wait to go back again

we have been to quite a few islands but I think Turks is my favorite by far.

the water is breathtaking

I can sit for hours on the beach, which by the way isn't crowded at all

Again looking forward to our next trip

Love nancy and John
