About the Property

Villa by the beach - Grace Bay West

PAYMENT by credit card through CIBC/FCIB merchant services - Visa, MasterCard and Discover. REGULATED - Coral Villa is licensed by the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board and operated under TCIG Business License for tourist accommodations. The rate we offer is INCLUSIVE, only extra is 12% government tax.
Enjoy in-door out-door living. Coral Villa is an owner-managed cottage surrounded by a beautiful garden and many native trees. Relax at our oasis permeated with gentle breezes and light sounds of the ocean.
Essentially it is a private yet convenient location by Turtle Cove marina that clinched the decision to buy in 2004. Whilst the island has developed significantly, a Tourist Board inspector remarked recently “this is like Provo used to be”!
After a major renovation and upgrade, the first guests arrived in 2012. Coral Villa has welcomed snowbirds; diverse couples; families wanting peace for themselves in tranquil surroundings; corporate visitors and wedding groups. Suitable for everyone!

Grace Bay resort area, a couple of miles up the beach, has led the tourism boom. “Our beach” is almost private with a few visitors enjoying the vista across Grace Bay and swimming in crystal clear warm waters. A stone's throw brings you to a superb coral sand beach with the best snorkelling in Provo - so bring fins and masks! Of course, the house has beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. Many times I have walked to the beach to watch the sun rise. Later on snorkeling as the sun begins its journey to night.
Guests frequently comment just how relaxing it is staying at Coral Villa. Sitting in the screened room it feels like being on a tropical island away from it all. Chill out here at sunset whilst enjoying supper and a glass of wine. Or simply read and listen to music. All rooms have views of the garden through meshed slatted shutters. High traditional cathedral ceilings and huge windows invite light to dance throughout. Interior contemporary décor enhances the spacious feeling.
The lounge area opens onto the large screened room. With the patio doors and shutters open, the cooling Trade Winds permeate the villa. In the hotter hours, there are fans and air-conditioning units in all rooms. If you need to keep abreast of the world outside, there is flat-screen TV and cable services for sports, news and movies, Internet and WiFi; plus a house cell phone for making reservations and booking taxis.
When travelling together there is always a time in the day when personal space is important. With two bedrooms off the living area guests can mingle or simply chill out alone as desired. Banish fatigue and sleep so well in beds with canopies and plenty of pillows. Bedroom shutters closed in the day keep out the sunlight and with cooling aircon the atmosphere becomes soporific.
As this is a private residence the open concept kitchen is very well equipped. It has a dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator with freezer, coffee-maker, toaster, kettle and too many utensils to count. Create delicious cocktails in a large glass blender.
In keeping with the quiet ambiance, the laundry room is separate on the lower level with washer and dryer for guest use. This is handy for saving hold luggage and essential for little kids. With many infants visiting over the years Coral Villa has cribs and a high chair with no extra charge.
It is almost certain that you will make friends at Turtle Cove. It is a short walk along a concrete sidewalk and there is plenty of parking for cars. Melinda at Provo Turtle Divers will sign you up for diving on the amazing reefs surrounding our island. Call Fineline for a great day out deep sea fishing at BiteMe. John at Baci welcomes guests and runs through its Mediterranean-style menu specials. Sharkbite’s Shannon and Keith greet everyone who drops by for a drink or meal. And Simone is the star at Simone’s Bar and Grill popular with tourists and locals alike.
In the mood for playing? Then there is a small casino, and on Thursday nights, the Island Fish Fry party starts at 6pm and is just up the road.
Our philosophy is flexibility, affordability and value. This is reflected in our pricing depending on the number of bedrooms and people staying. There is an optional 3rd bedroom by request when more than 4 guests are staying. This option is popular for weddings and friends’ re-unions.

Car: Recommended

This is a fantastic, safe and convenient location. Many excellent restaurants at Turtle Cove: Baci, Green Bean, Magnolia, Mango Reef (new location), Sharkbite, Simone's and Tiki Hut. Some cater for take-out meals.The IGA Supermarket is a convenient one mile away and has ready prepared chickens, pizza and other meals. Whilst it is not necessary to have a car, we find most guests arrange rental of a car or scooter to explore the island for at least a couple of days.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Retired from the IT industry in 2012 and now travelling whenever I can - time with American grandkids; the English ones in London; and family members in France.

Why the Owner Chose Grace Bay West, The Bight Settlement, Turks and Caicos Islands:
Fell in love with the islands for the utterly superb diving ... and gentle breezes. I simply love Provo and staying here is calming - I can just chill out with sand between my toes.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Knowing that I can walk along a deserted beach watching the sun rise every day I choose to, and at dusk snorkelling to say 'hi' to the turtles and little fish, and then walking for a really nice meal at the marina.
