About Ritama Davidson
Kabir and Ritama - owners of Villa Esencia. Avid kiteboarders. Self-development trainers, authors. We wanted a place in nature that supports a simple and natural lifestyle.
Ritama Davidson purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Ritama Davidson chose Long Bay
We were looking for a quiet, natural environment, close to nature and the sea, away from the buzz of city, roads and people. This location fit that description perfectly. There was only one house nearby, no sounds except the wind, the trees and the sea.

Literally 30 steps from a private beach.
Nice very private property with a private beach. Ocean is only 3 ft deep so my kids could walk out 10 yards without a problem. There was a private gazebo with tables and benches to just sit and relax. They have multiple kayaks and paddle boards for entertaining. You had to drive 10 min to the north side of the island for good snorkeling and food, but everything is so close by car it didn't matter. Also the north side is quite built up and crowded so we prefer being away from the people. But again, the north side is close that going to the snorkeling spots was quick. Decent kitchen and the market was 5-10 min away so we cooked on most days, but eating out or take out was close as well. Basically if you want privacy and time alone with family this is a great place to do that.
The Property villas were laid out as though you were the only ones there. Pathways for each villa was surrounded with lovely trees, bushes and flowers creating a sense of division, of isolation. The villas are well appointed and you can tell the owners have thoughtfully decorated each unit. All villas were steps away from the beautiful beach. The beach is great for families with small children because the water is only 2-3 feet deep. It's mostly used for sail boarding. This property is well away from all the ruckus - perfect for a quite, rested vacation.
Overall the villa is fantastic
If anything the web site under sells how nice the property is - very private with beautiful beach access - our first trip for kite surfing and will return
My husband and two teenage children stayed in the Penthouse Villa (Karana Hall) this past week. The accommodations were outstanding. The interior furnishings and finishing details were all high end and the balcony (comfortable seating area, dining area, new grill, and additional room for several yoga mats) captured the beautiful view. The design, with large window or double front door, allowed for gorgeous views in almost every direction. The beach is a short walk down a path past an inviting private pool. We took advantage of the shaded cabanas (kids loved the hammocks), comfortable lounge chairs, hot tub, paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkel equipment.
The Villa is located in a serene natural setting and combines the best of both worlds - natural beauty and comfortable accommodations. The most exceptional property we have stayed in to date.
We were undecided between staying in a resort on Grace Bay Beach or the Villa Esencia. Everyone - including the teenagers who usually prefer more action - felt we had DEFINITELY made the best choice.
Ritama is a gracious and knowledge hostess! We want to return soon!
Could've been great without the roaches
We rented the cottage for 10 days. The privacy of the cottage one can't compare. It's big enough for a couple, it's just like the pictures online. The safe isn't your normal standards(can't fit a 13" lap top). It's more for jewelry, which no one brings on vacation. The beach access through the jungle is nice. We preferred Long Bay than Grace Bay beach for its seclusion. It's not crowded & sometimes it seemed we were the only two there. The place is very very quiet. The gym is old with no AC but numerous fans which worked fine. God forbid you have the music loud while exercising, Amano (employee)will come & tell you to turn it down when your the only one in the little gym that no one hardly uses!! The disappointment was when we found 4 huge roaches in the kitchen on two nights of our stay, even with our cleaning & picking up after ourselves. The owners try to blame it on the property being in the Caribbean, but we have never encountered this where we have rented other villas. Out of our 10 day stay we only got housekeeping once! Not a thorough job either for $100 for 1 hour of cleaning. It shows the lack of cleaning there is between rental stays.!! I would suggest a thorough house cleaning especially in the kitchen inside the cabinets the barbeque grill & where the garbage is after each rental stay and at least twice for house cleaning during a renters stay no matter the length of stay when you have a kitchen. !!!!
I talked to Fatima extensively before travel date, and was disappointed with her lack of greeting (we had to tell her employee we wanted to see her a few days later) when we arrived and departure. I have not heard from her to ask if we had a nice stay & what needs improvement.
The road to the villa is bumpy as hell. This has nothing to do with the owners, but from another reviewer this has been going on for quite some time.
The most relaxing vacation we have ever taken!
After searching for the perfect vacation spot for our first visit to Turks and Caicos, I stumbled upon Escencia Villa on Long Bay Beach. Ritama was very kind to accommodate us and our time availability.
We really appreciated the privacy of the gated villas and were immediately greeted upon our arrival by Bernard and Louise who were overseeing the property in Ritatma's absence. They were very welcoming and assured us that they were only a phone call away if we needed anything!
We loved the large Penthouse Suite with the wraparound porch overlooking the pool and ocean. The fresh fruit was a nice touch and much appreciated and we were pleased to find a full kitchen with everything we needed to prepare our own meals as well as a grill on our balcony and a dishwasher for cleanup:)
The Villa was clean and the bed and furniture (inside and out) was very comfortable.
We relaxed and enjoyed the pristine beach and the kite surfers that graced the waters. The beach went on for miles and other than the surfers and a group of horseback riders occasionally, we only saw a handful of people each day.
The water was only waist deep for as far as you could see and other than a conch shell here and there it was soft, beautiful sand.
Friendly island, with easy access to restaurants, grocery and excursions.
We have never gone back to the same vacation rental twice until now. We truly feel like we found the perfect Villa and we will be back for two weeks next year!
Other Activities: Kiteboarding, Ocean Kayaking, Stand-Up-Paddle Boards
