Prior reviews said it all!
We were in need of a place for two nights, and little advance notice. This little compound on Long Bay is very private, and as noted before, such a short stroll to a pretty (almost private) beach! We took advantage of the beachfront lounge area!
Well Equipped studio suite on Long Bay
The property is very well kept, with lush vegetation that made suite more private. Very safe and secure; push button entry gate. Short walk to the extensive beach on Long Bay. The water is shallow and beautiful, with a few small shells along the waterline. Despite our arriving 1-2 hours early without notice (had to check out of previous lodging), Majid rapidly contacted Peter and we were very kindly allowed to check into our room (and stow cold food in the full-sized refrigerator). The room is comfortable, stylish and up to date. There were people in the suite overhead, but the air-conditioning worked well and our sleep was undisturbed. The last part of the drive in was bumpy. Highly recommend Salt Pizzeria Napoletano in the Leeward area, and enjoyed Turks Kebab too.
Excellent property with a peaceful vibe
If you rent your own car, I would rate this property one of the best values on Providenciales. This property is only a 10 minute drive from Grace bay, but you can sit outside in almost complete silence for most of the day or evening. The studio we stayed in was clean and close to new. It had the added bonus of a sitting area outside that expands your living space significantly. We spent most of our time, when 'at home' on the property hanging out in our outdoor space. Occasionally one of the onsite staff or Majid would walk by and we would chat for a few minutes.
Otherwise the only regular 'visitor' was a hen who lives on the property. She prefers to stay hidden, so you'll be lucky to see her.
The beach at Long bay is usually deserted in the early morning or evening. It is a good swimming beach, but for snorkeling you need to drive over to Grace Bay.
Otherwise you can get anywhere you need to go in 10-15 minutes in the car. The roadway running past the house has yet to be surfaced, so you need to slow down for the first/last 60 secs when leaving or returning to the house.
A wonderful stay by Long Bay Beach
The property is just beautiful. It is a short walk to the beach. The unit was impeccably clean with plenty of towels. The kitchen was well equipped, and we enjoyed making frozen cocktails in the frozen drink blender with dispenser. The location of the unit was great. It was nice having the pool close by, but no so close you can hear people at the pool. It was also helpful to have laundry on site-- our washer died the night before we left for our trip and we were grateful to be able to wash all our sunscreen laden clothes before flying back home!
You'll have everything you need for enjoyable beach and pool days. We had an outdoor shower just outside our unit (there's one outside each of them) that was perfect for keeping sand out of sleeping quarters. We were provided plenty of beach and pool towels. The pool has plenty of awesome rafts and floaties. Beach chairs are provided for both the local beach and to take with you around the island to whichever other beaches you hope to visit. Long Bay Beach close by is really nice and the beach chairs with canopy was also a nice touch-- there is no deck underneath like in the photo but that was of no bother to us. We enjoyed both the SUPs and kayak on Long Bay. You really get your money's worth with amenities here.
Check in and check out was seamless and we appreciated being able to hang longer by the pool until we had to leave for the airport for a later afternoon flight.
Finally, Majid was very hospitable and accessible. I even emailed via VRBO a few times because I had no cellular on the island (there were call buttons around the property, but I didn't want to be that person) and he responded within minutes both times. WiFi was fast and reliable on the whole property.
We hope to come back to stay in the future!
The place is even better than described. Very clean, modern and equipped with everything you need for an island vacation - including a well appointed room with a kitchen & Netflix, a swimming pool, cabanas, barbeque, kayaks, SUP, beach chairs, beach tent etc and only a 3 min walk from Long Bay beach and it's kite surfing activities/ horse rides.
The only issue is that the neighborhood is a bit far from the touristy area of Grace Bay and restaurants etc so you'll need a car to get around. But that can be a plus depending on what kind of vacation you want. I'd consider staying again if I return to TCI.

Why Majid Afshar chose Long Bay Hills
Last year 2015 in July I visited to this island after staying in Dominican Republic with my 2 sons. We had a fabulous time here on the island . I wished and dreamed that I would have a vacation home here some day so that I can come with family and friends to enjoy the beauty of this island.
