SUP (Stand-up Paddle Boarding). Provo named one of 3 best places in the world by pro windsurfer, Dave Kalama: 'I've been all over the world, and one place I really like for SUP is the TCI. The water is really clear, and the reefs are very alive. You'll see stingrays and all kinds of fish. The island has trade winds, so you can do downwind paddling. It has mangroves, so you can get protection from the wind to do flat-water paddling. It's a really versatile area.'

There's also: Beach walking/jogging, Kiting, Helicopter Tours, Private Boat Charters, Glow Worm Tours, Jet Skies, Star Gazing, Sunset Watching, The Green Flash!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Larry is a professor of physics at a leading Boston university and researcher, who has been looking for the Higgs particle for all of his 40-year career. On July 4, 2012, they announced that the Higgs had been found! Beth is enjoying her third career -- in wine -- after two earlier ones as a professional writer and as a marketing manager in a global electronics firm. Both physics and wine bring us often to France where we have been lucky to live in Paris, Provence, and the Pays de Gex. We enjoy French language and culture, wines from around the world, and travel, recently on safari to Botswana and Zimbabwe and to Brazil. Villa Camilla has been a source of much pleasure over the years. We hope you'll come to Villa Camilla to enjoy this unique spot in the TCIs.

Why the Owner Chose Grace Bay West, The Bight Settlement, Turks and Caicos Islands:
it all came down to location: 325' of beachfront on Grace Bay Beach, arguably the best beach in the world, as well as proximity to the islands most popular snorkeling spot and to all the island's many wonderful restaurants, water activities, nightlife and other adventures.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love the space and privacy that Villa Camilla gives us as well as the short walk -- 1 minute -- across our property to the Grace Bay Beach with the most popular snorkeling just next door. The villa is set among 6 acres of 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 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. Each night at sunset you'll find us up on the deck marveling at the beautiful, ever changing sky while sipping our favorite rum punch. Be sure to ask for the recipe! 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 5-10 minute drive away.
