About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 4) With Sound And Beach Access

Villa Serene is a newly renovated 2 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home that is located directly on Chalk Sound and beautiful Sapodilla Bay Beach. Both Chalk Sound (#6) and Sapodilla Bay Beach (#8) both rank in the top 10 activities in Providenciales.

If you truly want to get away from the lights, loud noises, traffic, and everyday stress of your work life, then Villa Serene is the perfect place for you. The nights in Villa Serene are so peaceful that you may never want to leave, and the days involve great views of Chalk Sound and 30 second walks to Sapodilla Bay Beach. You are also a 5 minute kayak away from seeing Iguanas in their natural habitat.

(Suggestion - Read the reviews to get personal reactions of what guests think about the Villa Serene experience.)

The home offers a spectacular view of the sound, private swimming pool and beautiful indoor and outdoor dining. The main building houses the fully equipped kitchen, formal dining and living room. The main pod has large windows on all sides that fill it with natural light.

Walking across the deck will bring you to the second pod which houses both bedrooms. Each air conditioned bedroom has a large double door entrance to the wrap-around deck, and a private bathroom.

The property is a professionally landscaped 1/3 acre that is located directly on the water. The lay-out of the pods and the landscaping ensure that the home is kept private so you can truly experience the peace you need.

In addition to being 30 seconds away from Sapodilla Bay beach, this home is just minutes away from Las Brisas restaurant & bar which has amazing coconut shrimp.

Why Clay Perry chose Turks & Caicos Islands

Sapodilla Bay Beach is the most tranquil beach on the island and overlooking Chalk Sound makes a beautiful setting. The color of the water is amazing. Just watching the changes in color during the course of the day can keep you occupied! Our first visit to TCI in 2010 made us fall in love with the beautiful island. This house is planned to be our 2nd home one day soon.

What makes this villa unique

Private and quiet....a perfect place to come and unwind. Whether as a couple or a family the place offers something for all.

Beautiful. Everything was as described!

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I loved this place. It was directly across the street from Sapodilla Bay Beach entrance which was so amazing!

Owner's Response: Rick... Thank you. Your point is excellent. Villa Serene is right across the road from the beach access, so you get to enjoy the beauty of Sapodilla Beach at less than half the price of the homes on the beach. And what's better is that you also have beautiful water views of Chalk Sound as well. If you ever want to come back with a larger group, we have another home in the same area called Villa View, and it has 3 bedrooms.

Wonderful week at Villa Serene

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Villa Serene and it was just as wonderful as the first. With young children, it is often hard to find a vacation that is truly relaxing. However, our week at Villa Serene was just that. We spent most of our time at the beautiful beaches, swimming in the pool, and kayaking around viewing sea turtles, manta rays and feeding the rock iguanas. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Courtney... We are so glad that your family enjoyed Villa Serene and are planning to come back. We definitely love the rock iguanas the best. They never fail to show up when you visit what we now call Little Iguana Island. Maybe you can plan your next trip to coincide with a full moon so you can experience the glow worms in Sapodilla Bay. I am sure your kids will love that.

Wonderful, quiet spot in TCI

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place. It is a small 2 pod home about 20 steps from the Sapodilla Bay beach access, just next to Las Brisas. The view over the pool is Chalk Sound and there is sound access and 2 kayaks as well. One pod had the kitchen, living room and a ½ bath. The other had 2 bedrooms each with their own bath. People staying at Neptune Villas walked in the empty lot next door to get to the beach, Grace Bay people parked in that empty lot and all over the street to get into Sapodilla Bay. Every day was filled with cars with people coming and going. It didn’t bother us, the people seemed to be quiet tourists and the landscaping all over the villa provided all of the privacy you wanted. The house had recently been renovated and it has a small pool that was shaded most of the day. I think in July the colder water would be welcome. We only used it once after a particularly grueling tennis session. The kitchen was great and the TV had all the stations necessary to watch all the Bowl games that happened all week long. Mosquitos weren’t an issue, there was a breeze all the time when outside. The first night we headed the 100 steps or so to the beach for sunset. It was a great one. The AC and the little fans kept things cool and with I like the white noise. We had one issue with the dishwasher and they sent a man over on NYE!! It was fixed (I think I was doing it wrong, sorry!) and he was on his way. Great property and great managers.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay, and as always, we would love to have you back next year. I do get a lot of questions about mosquitoes, but we have never experienced them either when we visit our home in TCI. So thanks for confirming what I believe to be true which is no mosquitoes. I like your description of 100 steps to the beach. That is about right, and those 100 steps save you about $4000 a week because the home on the beach are far more expensive. The 100 steps gives you a little exercise and saves you a ton of money.

Fantastic accommodation in the most ideal setting!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week with our two college age children at Villa Serene. The villa exceeded our expectations. It is updated and tastefully decorated and well stocked with everything you will need. The patio area is large with more than ample furnishings, a great small pool and incredible views of the sound. We loved taking the kayaks out in the sound. Villa Serene is directly across the street from the public access path to Sapodilla bay/beach (30 second walk) which in my opinion is one of the best beaches on the island. After our week at Villa Serene, we moved to a hotel on Grace Bay and we all agreed that we preferred Sapodilla.

The villa is managed by a local property management company which is ideal. They meet you at the airport and are available during your stay if any issues arise. The mid week maid service was a pleasant surprise as was the lovely welcome basket of fruit, snacks and beer.

A couple tips:

1. If you arrive on the island on a Sunday, buy duty free at your departing airport as there are no liquor sales on Sunday.

2. If you kayak out to the islands in Chalk Sound bring a little lettuce. The iguanas will come right up to you and gently eat from your hand. Very cool!

3. Take a short walk up to the top of Sapodilla Hill for some incredible views.

4. Las Brisas restaurant which a 5 minute walk from the villa is excellent and a great place to eat, especially your first night on the island.

All in all, a wonderful vacation rental! We would love to return one day!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review of Villa Serene. My wife and I agree that Sapodilla is the best beach on the island. Grace Bay is very nice, but there is more wind, more people, more cars, etc. Sapodilla Bay is the perfect getaway location to relax. I am also glad that you were able see the iguanas. When we first bought Villa Serene we did not know about them until one of our other guests mentioned them. So we took the kayaks on the next trip, and sure enough, they come running up to you as the kayak approaches the little inlet of the first big island you see in Chalk Sound. We hope you are able to return and enjoy our home again. We plan to keep it for a long time.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We got what we thought we were getting and we were delighted. The house is lovely, clean, and well maintained. I can't add much to what other positive reviewers have said, but one small experience was telling. We noticed a couple of maintenance issues at the house: a door didn't latch quite properly and the flushing mechanism on one of the toilets stuck. So minor were these matters that we didn't bother alerting anyone until a staff member showed up to make sure that we were happy. Would she like to know about these things, I asked, for the benefit of future guests? Indeed, she would. Within the hour a maintenance man was on the scene and everything was taken care of.

Owner's Response: Allan... Thank you very much for the 5 Star review. We do our best to keep our home in great shape. My wife and I go there 3 times a year, and we try to look for the small things as well. Even when we miss a couple of things, we have so much confidence in the Island Escapes team and how they service our guests. We are so happy that we picked them to manage our properties because we always get compliments on how service oriented they are. We are glad that you specifically complimented them in your review. Thank you.

Great quiet location, easy walk to some of the best beaches

  • 5 of 5

Delightful house, away from the hotels on Grace Bay. Easy walk to two of the best quiet beaches. Great restaurant next door with easy walk there and back. Chaulk Sound at your back door for views and kayak. Would recommend it. Need a car.

Owner's Response: Paul... Thank you for the great review. You touch on all the reasons my wife and I chose Villa Serene as our first rental property in TCI. We love Sapodilla Bay Beach and Taylor Bay Beach which are the two most beautiful and tranquil beaches on the island. And the views of Chalk Sound from the deck and living room are wonderful. Finally, Las Brisas has great food for dinner, and they serve a Tapas menu for lunch. The nacho plate can feed an elephant for a great price. We would love to have you back next year, and if you have a larger party, then consider our other home in the Sapodilla Bay area called Villa View. It is the two story white house that you pass on the left before you get to Las Brisas. It has 3 bedrooms, and it has great views of Chalk Sound and you can also see Sapodilla Bay sunsets from the second story balcony. Clay

Car: recommended

Villa Serene is a 30 second walk to Sapodilla Bay and overlooks Chalk Sound. It is in a very tranquil area of Providenciales with beautiful sunsets and very lightly populated.

It is a location where you can simply get away from it all while enjoying relaxing days on Sapodilla Bay Beach or kayaking on Chalk Sound.
