About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

WHY WE PICKED TURKS AND CAICOS: Since I was 12 I made it my quest to find the world's best beaches. I told everyone I'd have my bungalow by the ocean with tons of palm trees. I've been to some gorgeous ones, from Maldives, Cook Islands, Bora Bora and beyond. When I married I told my husband retirement included warmth, turquoise water and palm trees. After traveling the world, I found Grace Bay Beach to be the one! I never get tired of those gorgeous neon hues!


Leeward Beach and Grace Bay Beach blend for miles of endless beach

One of the sunniest driest islands in Caribbean

Easy to get to on big jet planes (I avoid puddle jumpers!)


Private pool, with tropical Tiki bar, landscape lights and Tiki torches

**Free WiFi**

--We offer Flexible Dates!!!

--Loaner pay as you go Cell Phone for use

--The longer you stay, the more you save

--Only a 3 minute walk to stunning beach

--By car 3 minutes to supermarket and the best restaurants on island

Save money staying only blocks from the beach in a quiet setting without giving up luxury . Pack the cooler and find your own secluded stretch of Leeward/Pelican Beach and search for giant conch shells to bring back home. Enjoy happy hour at the pool tiki bar with palm thatch roof before heading out to dinner. Barefoot Palms is casual and laid back yet elegant with travertine tiles, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

Every room has soaring high cathedral ceilings and open living space. The huge master bedroom has a king size bed , walk in closet and writing desk area. 2 other bedrooms have queen size beds; great for families or 3 couples. Each bedroom has its own TV, Cable and DVD players. There's access to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. Individual A/C units in each bedroom and the rest of the house has central air.

The open kitchen/dining/living rooms will have you cooking eating and entertaining with all utensils and an extensive movie library. There's a Bluetooth Soundbar for music and recent best selling books for reading enjoyment on the beach.

There are small tropical touches throughout with Tommy Bahama furniture, palm tree and shell cabinet handles, and colorful fish switch plates.

It's hard to break away from the huge backyard patio with a pool and the best feature, a tropical tiki hut bar!

About Ramona Settle

Obssessed with warm weather and beaches, I was lucky enough to travel the world in my quest for the world's best beach. Nothing beats the turquoise hues of Grace Bay Beach. Double lucky that I was hired by Fodor's Travel publications to write guidebooks on Turks and Caicos and Bahamas.

Ramona Settle purchased this villa in 2002

Why Ramona Settle chose Leeward Settlement

My husband knew my goal in life to have a beach house. After going to numerous islands, when landing over Chalk Sound, he was looking out the window at the bright turquoise water and said, 'this is the island!'

What makes this villa unique

walk to a secluded beach, fun tropical tiki bar, in a quiet upscale neighborhood for a fraction of the price staying on Grace Bay, plus bonus discounts with cars, cell phones and excursions.

Spectacular Stay

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! This was hands down one of the best vacation rentals. After exploring the Island we LOVED coming back to Barefoot Palms and unanimously declared the location the best on the Island. The house layout was perfect and they had everything you needed to make your vacation complete. Access to the beach was awesome, we actually were picked up by Island Vibes for the 1/2 day snorkeling excursion!

Thanks for a wonderful vacation rental!

Great beaches and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Great overall stay. We stayed post hurricane and many places on island still doing work and renovations. House conveniently located near great beaches that are a 5 minute walk or 2 minute drive. On arrival, met at house for instructions and keys. Very responsive and assisted with small issues- security system beeping and payment needed for cable (both fixed right away after a quick text message). Pool and outdoor space nice. Beach chairs, umbrella, and small coolers available for use at beach. Good supply of towels in bathrooms and for pool/beach. Hope to visit again. Recommend highly!

Fabulous Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned last week from a week in beautiful Turks and Caicos. It goes without saying that the beaches in Turks and Caicos are among the most beautiful in the world. Well, this villa was the perfect home away from home to return after a hot day on the beach. Ramona has stocked the villa with everything including spices for cooking and every utensil and appliance that you need for enjoying a relaxing meal at home. Restaurants, shops and grocery stores are a short 10 min. drive away. The pool is a perfect place to cool down after sunning on the patio and there is a small beach a short walk from the villa when you don't want to deal with crowds closer to the shops. All of the items that you need for a relaxing day at the beach like towels, chairs and umbrellas are sitting right at the front door in the villa.

My family and I throughly enjoyed out time at Barefoot Palms and look forward to visiting again soon!!!

"Our vacation home"...just as good as if we owned it ourselves.

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed stating at Barefoot Palms during our vacation in Provo, Turks and Caicos. If you’re looking for an area of the island that is more relaxed and away from the hoards of tourists, this is the place to stay. Very easy walk to white sand beaches and turquoise water where kids enjoyed swimming for Conch shells. Surf here was minimal where safety was not a concern. Only a handful of families on the beach (felt like a private beach). The house has beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels to use. Pictures of the house are right on mark. Very clean house, great outdoor area in the back, fully furnished kitchen (pots/pans, etc), a safe in the master bedroom are among some of the key highlights. Never saw any bugs inside. House has central air and each room has A/C although we rarely needed to use it. Kids (9 and 11) really loved the pool. It was nice to come back from the beach and use the outdoor shower to get all the sand off. As FYI for those with disabilities, the house does have steps from main entrance/bedrooms to the living room/kitchen/patio pool. House is close to shopping and restaurants. We had a rental car (a must) to be able to get to all the good snorkeling places and restaurants (Grace Bay and Turtle Cove recommended). On the same area of the island we recommend Big Blue Unlimited outfitters. We used them for scuba diving (limits each boat to few divers for better service) and kayaking to the protected Iguana Island (kayak from Big Blue to the island and Mangroves). The whole team of Barefoot Palms is VERY responsive. They get back to you very fast, something that was much appreciated compared to past VBRO experiences. Ask them about the discounts available for restaurants and other vendors when you book your stay here. If we go back to the island, we hope that it is available. Definitely would stay there again!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with my parents and our children for 10 days. This villa was by far and away the best we have used! There was plenty of room for us all, it was safe, and every amenity you needed was there! Blender for morning smoothies at the tiki bar, pool toys, beach toys, travel cooler with ice packs, beach chairs, games, outdoor shower to rinse off sand, washer and dryer, appliances that all worked! Ramona and Jameka were always accessible for any needs, recommendations, or questions. The pool was perfect for those hot afternoons before dinner! And it was cleaned even twice while we were there! The location was what we were looking for...walk to the most beautiful beach I have ever been on, just far enough from the major hub of Grace Bay but a short drive there, and in a very safe area.

Our personal recommendations for the islands... AquaTCI for diving! Hands down a fantastic scuba diving operation! They are a small company that provide smaller, more personalized scuba experiences for every level of experience. Safety is paramount as it should be! All new and well maintained state of the art gear for rental. The diving in the Turks is simply amazing!

Dinners- Best dinner was Bay Bistro. Baci was beautiful particularly outdoors and more affordable than other places on the island. We also enjoyed Magnolia's. We were greatly disappointed in Coco Bistro for the money and the fact that we had to make reservations 3 months in advance. Yummy and memorable lunches at Somewhere but beware of the woman beading hair on the beach there! also just off Somewhere we were just snorkeling and came across eagle rays and turtles in 15 feet of water!!

You will not be disappointed in this villa or this island!!

wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 10 days at Barefoot Palms and we can't say enough about the Villa or the communication with Ramona and Jameka.

The layout was perfect for our family that included 2 girls ages 5 and 8, their parents and grandparents - everyone had their own space. The girls were in the pool from 7:30am and only came out to go to the beach - only to return to the pool after the beach!!! We wanted for nothing in the villa as well.

What can I say about the Turks?? A different day a different beach and all are beautiful. Our family divided up for some activities, but, enjoyed Provo ponies and riding the beach, Bugaloo's where the younger granddaughter also got to ride the ponies, scuba and snorkeling off "Somewhere". So many wonderful restaurants!!!

Caicos Café, Bay BIstro and Magnolia's stand out as 3 of our top choices.

We usually ate breakfast in - by the pool, made lunches and go off for the day.

Thank you helping us make wonderful memories - we will be back!!!!
