About the Property
Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Harbour House is an elevated beach-style house designed for comfort and easy socializing among the palm trees. You will find plenty of places to spread out at Harbour House whether in the sun on the front deck, the shade and cool breezes on the back deck, under the Gazebo poolside or soaking up the sun on our pool loungers. During the summer of 2013 we completed the construction of a 16' x 24' pool, gazebo and patio area on the sunny side of Harbour House to take advantage of the beautiful afternoon sun. Enjoy a morning swim in the pool before heading to the beach or hang out there all day. The patio is surrounded by lush landscaping complete with bougainvillea and palm trees and our very own lime tree offering the Caribbean ambiance you're looking for. At night be sure to turn on the pool lights and enjoy the lightshow! Another nice feature is a propane pool heater which keeps the temperature of the pool at a beautiful 82 degrees year round – perfect for those evening swims when the air temperature is in the mid 70s during the winter months.
Harbour House has been upgraded throughout yet retains the cool island feel of a beach house. The french doors front and back open wide to let the breezes through, and the decks offer spacious outdoor living areas off the living & dining rooms, surrounded by trees and indigenous vegetation. The front and rear doors and windows are louvered aluminum which allow the windows to stay open day or night securely while the beautiful cooling trade-wind breezes pass through the house.
Inside, the kitchen is where most of the socializing happens and features a beautiful granite bar area, Sapelli Mahogany cabinets and onyx pendant lights giving this space a cozy nightclub feel as you sit on the bar stools and relive your island adventures each evening. The dining table comfortably seats up to 8 people in the dining room or you can choose to dine outside on the back deck under the palm tree and blossoming Mahoe trees. You will usually share your breakfast with the resident Bahama Woodstar Hummingbirds in the morning!
The warm coral colored main bedroom features a king size bed and, for comfort, a ceiling fan as well as air conditioning if needed. The front windows are louvered which can remain open all night to let the breezes flow through the bedroom. The bathroom offers his and hers sinks and a spacious travertine marble tile and glass shower.
The second bedroom also offers a king size bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan louvered windows. The walls in this room are a soft lavender color, the perfect place for an afternoon nap when you return from the beach.
The open living room area is welcoming with traditional exposed beam vaulted ceilings, a ceiling fan and comfortable, contemporary furniture - an inviting area for all to congregate. The sectional couch has a queen size pull out bed that is very comfortable and easily made up with the half bath near-by. For inside entertainment there is a 42”' HDTV, DVD player and a bluetooth soundbar and wireless internet.
And then there is Sapodilla Bay less than a 2 minute walk to the prettiest beach on Providenciales. Spend the day building sand castles, wading through the water, floating, snorkeling, watching for turtles and just taking in the magnificent turquoise view. Don't be afraid to drag your beach chairs into the water and watch the sun slowly sink into the water to the west while you plan tomorrow's adventure - or not... this is paradise! The southwest side of Providenciales is a totally different experience compared to the Grace Bay hustle and bustle and larger surf of the north side. Even though it is the “other side” of the island you are still only a 15 minute drive from most everything Provo has to offer from horse back riding, paddleboarding, snorkeling, scuba or fishing excursions. You will find all sorts of dining experiences on Provo within minutes from Harbour House or simply walk down our back path right across the street to Las Brisas restaurant and come 'home' for an after dinner drink by the pool under the stars.
New this year is the addition of Ocean Kayak hybrid paddleboard/kayaks at the beach access. The 2 board/kayaks are available at an added fee for the week and offer the ability to paddle standing up or sitting down by converting the paddles. Very cool!

Children are very much welcome at Harbour House. We offer a crib and a Pack and Play for the youngest ones and a very comfortable folding cot to add to the sleeping arrangements. You will find Sapodilla Beach is the most kid friendly beach anywhere with offshore breezes and shallow, clear turquoise waters. There are rarely any waves or even choppy waters in Sapodilla Bay due to the predominantly easterly breezes. The sand on Sapodilla Beach is some of the softest anywhere in the world and, of course, makes for the best sandcastles!The front and back decks are totally enclosed so young children cannot 'escape' without Mom or Dad knowing about it. Our pool is designed with a very shallow area (18 inches) for young kids to splash around in the water and for Mom and Dad to swim in the deeper end and not worry. ...moreless

- I have made it a point to greet all of our guests at the airport personally. You will see one of us holding a sign for Harbour House when you walk through the exit doors. I feel this is important as we have arrived at airports and been in the middle of the mayhem looking for a cab or the rental car company. My goal is to make your arrival as simple as possible, help you load everything into your rental car and have you follow us to Harbour House. Yes, it is only a 10 minute drive to Sapodilla Bay but it makes things much easier navigating on the left side of the road and through the islands 'interesting' traffic circles. Once we get to Harbour House we will spend some time showing you through the house and, of course, guiding you down to the beach access. ...moreless

About the owner: When we married while vacationing in Antigua, my wife and I started to dream of how we were going to one day live in the Caribbean. After that first warm trip together we traveled to Maui, Dominican Republic, BVI, St. Lucia, Barbados, Mexico and a few other warm destinations until we found Providenciales. We were immediately stricken with the innumerable colors of the water and practically deserted beaches and knew that this was it. After two weeks of playing in 85 degree ocean water, we went home, listed the house, sold the cars and most of our furniture and moved to 'Provo' 3 months later - just to try it out for a few months. That was over a decade ago and we have not regretted our decision. As simple as it sounds, I enjoy getting up in the morning and not having to decide how many layers of clothes I will need to walk the dog! I don't own 4 seasons of clothes like I did at home and I can BBQ any darned day of the week. I traded my skis for sailing which I can also do any day of the week! Above all else though, we have grown in so many directions due to the friends we have made and the many, many people we have met from all corners of the earth. We cherish our local island friends and the fact that they have welcomed us to live here and make our new lives in their country. We encourage you as visitors to say Hello to a Turks islander at every opportunity and enjoy the friendly smile and humor that will undoubtedly follow. Enjoy your time in our island home - we are delighted to share the experience with you.
Why the Owner Chose Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands:
It's really all about being able to walk to the beach in less than 2 minutes and straight into the water - no hills to climb or treacherous hikes across rocks to get to the beach. Or to gaze out at how the sun lights up the shallows into 'electric turquoise'. Or to look up at the plane passing overhead and realize that the turquoise undercarriage is actually the water reflecting up on a white undercarriage! Provo is blessed with many miles of sandy beaches but Sapodilla Beach is a special stretch with its own character and amenities. Don't forget that the sun sets over the water most of the year on this side of the island and you will see the 'green flash'. If you've never heard of or seen the green flash it is your job to now find out more.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Harbour Gates is a closed community with one access into the neighbourhood which results in hardly any traffic. This makes the short walk to your beach access safe and unimpeded where your beach chairs are waiting for you. Sapodilla Beach on Sapodilla Bay is a public beach with 7 private homes built on it. This means that the beach is never crowded and there are no resorts nearby. Sapodilla Bay is a safe harbour for passing sailboats making their way down through the islands or back home again. Keep your eyes open for the resident turtles that surface just beyond the shallows or the occasional stingray or dolphins. The wind is predominantly from the east so west facing Sapodilla Bay is mostly flat and docile - perfect for kayaking or stand up paddle boarding. Although we are not on the beach, the open concept and vaulted ceilings of our house make this feel like a true beach house. Our bungalow is elevated 6 feet off the ground with decks front and back. The foundation incorporates a 25,000 gallon cistern replenished by capturing rain water from the roof. We rarely require A/C due to the constant breezes and laundry can be dried on the shaded clothes lines under the house. We try to be as 'green' as we can and the island is better for it. The addition of the pool, patio and gazebo in 2013 offers our guests their choice of playing at the beach or playing in the pool or both! We have creating a courtyard atmosphere poolside where you can soak in the sun or hang out in the shade of the gazebo or palm trees. The pool means you will never be too far away from the ice and the blender for another slushy drink! We hope you enjoy your stay!
