We purchased this villa because of its great location and the views. We walk to the marina and enjoy all the restaurants, bars, people and boats. We have an acre of land right on Grace Bay beach. It is spectacular! Crystal clear warm water and gentle ocean breezes. Some days you will only see a few people on the beach. We all love to snorkel and some of the best on the island is just a five min walk from the villa on the beach.
DEBBI purchased this Villa in 2000
Why DEBBI chose The Bight Settlement
We looked at a number of islands, as well as Florida. The waters and beaches on Provodenciales are simply ...beautiful. I now know why Grace Bay has been rated as one of the top ten beaches in the world. We think it is the best in the world
What makes this Villa unique
The villa embraces you and you instantly feel like you are on an island and you just relax and enjoy the beauty of the location. The best snorkeling is directly in front of the villa or a 5 min walk down the beach. Total privacy, but with everything you could ever want within 5 mins. You can also have maid service daily or have shopping done, and have meals prepared for you. It is your choice!

Great place to stay! Great snorkeling out the back door! The pool is refreshing and located next to the beach. I would highly recommend booking early. Four couples with plenty of room. It is within walking distance of bars and dining. We had a wonderful stay!
We had a wonderful stay. The house was perfect for the 4 couples on our trip. The beach is sandy (not a lot of rocks or seaweed) and the water mesmerizing. Everyone loved the proximity to good snorkeling spots. There’s really not much need to leave the villa. It is next to public beach access but this was not problematic for us. In fact, we loved not being in crowded resort areas. The pool and beach is hard to beat. The views are breathtaking. We look forward to vacationing here again.
Perfect getaway in paradise
This place is a gem. Perfect beach location with Smiths reef just steps away. We loved the pool and the house was spacious enough for our party of 7. Mango Reef restaurant at the marina is also a short walk away. We went many times and made friends with the staff- it was great for my daughter who has multiple food allergies. I don't want to enthuse too much- or it will be booked out constantly and we won't be able to return. Perfect piece of paradise.
Beautiful spot, poorly located near public beach access way. Large enough villa but bare minimum
Bella Sur Mer: TURKS VILLA REVIEW - “Not a good value, extreme disappointment “
There is a local brewery on Turks and Caicos that make a beer
called “I Ain Ga Lie”’ it is pretty good and affordable. However when it comes to Bella Sur Mer in the Turtle Cove area of Providenciales,“I Ain Ga Lie”, we were incredibly disappointed. We wanted this to be a special family vacation since it had been over a year since we went away as a family and we were also celebrating a milestone birthday. When you spend over 1000.00 per day to rent your own place, you want/expect it to have the necessary accoutrements that make living away from home manageable and enjoyable.
The cottage itself is fine although it really has the bare minimum for families with children. No beach or sand toys, no paddle boards or rafts. No real games to speak of. The pool is tiny and looks far bigger in the pictures. It is also freezing! No heater, and virtually unusable especially on a windy day which we encountered every day , or when the pool is shaded. My hardy seven year old from New England was too cold when he got into the pool and we never used it. The swimming beetles and bees in the pool didn’t help either. Neither did the fact that the pool guy came once in the span of 10 days.The lack of a heater for the pool was not mentioned on VRBO’s site.
The house abuts a public walkway to the beach( never mentioned on the site) so not onIy is it loud but we had to contend with people smoking in front of our “private” area and on more than one occasion we had to kick people out of our “private”chaise chairs. The owners description of the villa makes it sound totally private but that was not our experience. The neighbors had 6-8 teens and college kids blasting music and partying late into the night, waking up my 7 year old and keeping us up on more than one occasion. Again, not relaxing!
The views from the second floor are fantastic. But again when it comes to making things easy for yourself when on vacation , the villa did not fulfill its promise. The washer and dryer for laundry is outside of the house and down a flight of stairs. You need a separate key just to access it. How is this convenient for a family of 5? Again, no mention of this on the website. The downstairs bedrooms are moldy smelling and dated. The website listing states that there are games and a DVD/CD player at the Villa. Nope. Unless you consider a few jigsaw puzzles and an ihome the equivalent...we lost power
I am very surprised you were not completely happy with your visit.
You contacted me, as well as our caretaker one or two times a day, everyday. We both took care of the smallest of requests, to hopefully make your vacation perfect. I have a feeling no matter how much we both did, there was simply, no way to make it perfect for you.
On Turks and Caicos, as well as most islands, there are public access paths to the beach about every 500 yards. There is one directly beside the Grace Bay Club, The Palm, Somerset, etc. These resorts charge on average $1000-$5000 per night, per room. No one has ever been upset with the paths.
We just completed a major renovation on our home. We took many walls downstairs down to the studs after the hurricane and totally rebuilt everything. It is all new and definatley not musty. Maybe you smelled new wood and drywall, or the new furniture.
I do think you are totally mistaken on this matter.
Our neighbors do have a 18 year old son and I did call them, after you called me, about the noise one night. I also sent our caretaker over for you, to be sure everything was okay. I cannot tell my neighbor they cannot have a party, any more than you can direct your neighbors what to do. They did apologize!
Our laundry area is in a private room downstairs, so that it does not disturb anyone, Everyone else has commented how nice!
Our pool is actually larger than average for the islands. It has a 8’ x 8’ very shallow area ( purposely built for little kids- 14 inches deep) or for adults that want to relax. The rest of the pool is 30’ by 18’. Many villas just have dunking pools. No resort or hotel I know of heats their pools. All of them naturally maintain a temperature around 80 degrees. There are a few very small bugs (size of flies) that do fly into the pool from time to time. We cannot control mother nature! Our pool was cleaned the morning before you arrived and once while you were there.
We happened to arrived at the house just an hour after you left, and had a great vacation! Everyone that visits our home has a fantastic time! Many have returned over and over again. We have been there 5 times since October and it is always great! We take exceptional care of our home and are very happy when others love it as much as we do.
Sitting under the covered area by the pool overlooking the incredible green waters of lower Grace Bay is amazing! The whole week we were there, a refreshing breeze blew through the pool area and on the beach which is steps away from the pool. The house suited our needs well as we wanted king beds in the bedrooms. The house is comfortable with plenty of living space. Debbi, the owner, is very responsive and the caretaker of the house does an incredible job cleaning! There was even a midweek cleaning, but as we had two babies, it was a bit inconvenient as we felt we needed to vacant the house. We were informed that there is a stringent limit on the amount of electricity that one is allowed for the week. We were able to keep the bedrooms comfortable at night but the house got extremely hot during the day in spite of opening windows and using the fans present. There is plenty of seating but I'd say the furnishings and defects in the tile flooring should be updated. There are a variety of restaurants within walking distance but having a car to explore the island is recommended.
Great Location for Cottage on the Beach
It is a great location for snorkeling, it is away from the crowds and it is close to the marina with a few good restaurants. The pool and beach areas were nice and each had an area with shade. The home had a cottage feel with good space, but it was a little dated. It worked great for my group that usually enjoyed breakfast and lunch at the house and dinner out.
Yes, we are so lucky to have such a great white sandy beach with fantastic snorkeling just a five minute walk down the beach, in either direction. We love the open concept lay out of the villa. It is not a new villa, which gives it that great beachy feeling. We do pride ourselves on keeping it modern, yet extremely comfortable . A great place to have a vacation!
