HERON'S RETREAT is a charming beachfront villa and the Tuscan architecture together with its colonial style furniture reflects the casual elegance of the French colonial Great Houses of past centuries which featured verandas, balconies and louvred windows.
It is situated on a long tranquil beach which runs for miles. You are well away from 'condo land' here (but only a few minutes drive away if you want a change of pace).
The villa has 2 bedrooms each with a queen size bed and closet and 2 bathrooms with a spacious shower.
The upstairs bedroom suite consists of a bathroom and a bedroom with a four poster bed and its own covered balcony with stunning views of the ocean. A romantic place for early morning coffee while watching the Pelicans fish or for sunset cocktails.
The second bedroom is downstairs and also has spectacular ocean views . It shares a spacious covered terrace with the living room. It also has a bathroom. All of the rooms in the villa including the bathrooms have awesome ocean rooms. The terrace has teak loungers and dining table and chairs for al fresco dining.
The property is beachfront and there is a small pathway onto the beach. I have put some beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, towels and beach toys in the house. Thompson's Cove Beach is a good place for swimming and snorkeling and for lunch you might want to walk for 5 minutes along the beach to 2 beach bars and restaurants, one of which specialises in conch, a local Turks and Caicos specialty.
The lounge dining area and kitchen are all in an open plan room. The lounge furniture is leather and there is a TV, DVD player, Stereo for CDs with Ipod dock, Internet, WiFi and some CDs, DVDs, books and magazines.
The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a microwave, electric ceramic top stove, dishwasher, fridge freezer and clothes washer/dryer.
You can BarBQ and dine under the stars at the front of the house where there is a BarBQ area.
The villa is surrounded by tropical vegetation. The Palms, Neem Trees and tropical flowers give a feeling of calm exotic tranquility. The driveway is lined with Indonesian lanterns and you will find Balinese and other Indonesian sculptures and stonework dotted around the garden.
The birdlife is spectacular and you will frequently see Pelicans fishing and Herons. You should also see Ospreys flying over from time to time. The Night Herons nest in the surrounding vegetation so please do not disturb them when you see them walking around. If you find crab shells on the driveway, it will be the remains of a Heron's dinner from the previous night.
The land area is 1.8 acres and there are only 2 very private villas on the property both hidden behind tall vegetation. The estate is fenced and you enter the driveway by means of an electronic gate. There is also a monitored alarm system.
The villa has central AC which is separately metered and you are charged separately for this. The Bedrooms and Living Room all have ceiling fans.
I have tried to ensure the villa has every comfort so you can relax completely and chill out. There are plenty of towels and linens and everything you would want in the kitchen so that you really feel it is your home away from home. I want you to experience what it is like to live in the tropics. It is so beautiful and tranquil. What about getting married on the beach? The villa would also be a romantic hideaway for honeymoons.
In addition to beachcombing, swimming, snorkeling and birdwatching there is a large choice of watersports available on island including diving, snuba, fishing, parasailing, sailing, kiteboarding, water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing, stand up paddleboarding, semi submarine, glass bottom boat and kayaking. There are also trips to neighbouring islands and excursions by boat to see iguanas, flamingos, glow worms and sunset cruises.
For golfers, there is a beautiful 18 hole golf course about 20 minutes drive away.
For gamblers, there are 2 Casinos about 7/15 minutes drive.
If you want to eat out (or get a take away) Provo has a large choice of excellent restaurants including International/French, Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Indian, Thai , Asian and Caribbean all 5 to 20 minutes drive away.

About the owner: I moved to Turks and Caicos 31 years ago from the UK. I bought this land and had this villa designed and built for me about 12 years ago.
Why the Owner Chose Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands:
I bought this beautiful beachfront land as it is in an upscale residential area with a wonderful ambience in a very central location. The highest point in Turks and Caicos is on the eastern edge of Thompson's Cove. There is a canal shaped marina where some property owners keep their boats. My property is on a quiet beach which runs for miles. What makes this idyllic location so superb is the water, the beach, its wonderful birdlife, underwater life and fascinating tropical vegetation.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Being on a large piece of land with plenty of privacy due to the vegetation and also being located on a very long quiet beach. It is an affordable way for 1 to 4 people to relax and chill out in the tropics right on the beach. It is a luxurious well equipped cottage and the beach is deserted. With its central location access to all parts of the island is easy. You can drive in one direction and reach beautiful Chalk Sound and dine by the water's edge or drive in another direction and enjoy all the facilities of charming Turtle Cove or famous Grace Bay Beach.
