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 Providenciales

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.

                                                                        This house is amazing. We do HomeAway every time we travel and this was our fave house. Super great communication with owners throughout the process, great on island management company, amazing house (well equipt kitchen, awesome pool, GREAT kids stuff, clean, AC in bedrooms but we didn’t need it with open windows, kyack) and the best location ever. Will definitely be back.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Danielle... That is an amazing complement to be called the Best HomeAway Rental Yet. We had just gotten an earlier review from a guest in January with some concerns about the hurricane, and we were surprised because we were here in December 2017 and everything was well back on track. We just arrived at our home right after you, and everything is just as wonderful as it always has been.

                                                                        i am so glad that your family had a wonderful time. We noticed that the toy supply has increased and we now have some snorkeling gear. I am assuming some previous guests may have left that. That is a nice bonus. If you left that, then thank you. Otherwise thanks to the guests that did.

                                                                        We look forward to having you back anytime, and bring friends. They can stay at our other home called Villa View which is a short walk away.

                                                                        Our group of four adults spent ten days together at Villa Serene. This was our first trip to Turks & Caicos. We all agree that the accommodations and its location were great. The layout of the two separate structures adjoined by the spacious deck was something we really liked. The landscaping provided privacy from neighbors (who we hardly ever heard) and the buildings themselves afforded privacy from the street side. Nearly every morning, we walked down the back steps to the Chalk Sound and went for a kayak paddle. We also loved walking down the front steps and across the road to Sapodilla Bay, a lovely beach with clear, calm waters, perfect for small kids to play in or adults like us to relax in (or enjoy our afternoon cocktail). One of our party members was coping with a back issue and thoroughly enjoyed the pool at the house- really, the set up was just great for our needs! An added bonus was having the restaurant Las Brisas virtually next door to the Villa. We ate there several times, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. On several occasions, we sat on our deck in the evening and heard their live music- not too loud, just right. Our day trips kept us pretty busy, so the convenience of having this restaurant right next door was really great. We tried several other restaurants on the island and all agree that Las Brisas was the best food and service we encountered. We were disappointed at not seeing much wildlife, but assume that was due to the hurricanes. However, if we were to visit T&C again, all four of us agree that we would absolutely consider staying again at Villa Serene.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        - Proximity to Las Brisas restaurant

                                                                        - Hearing the live music at Las Brisas in the distance on Friday/Saturday night

                                                                        - Direct kayak access to Chalk Sound

                                                                        - Very short walk to Sapodilla beach

                                                                        - Pool to enjoy when you need a break

                                                                        - Massive deck (Observation deck coming soon!!!)

                                                                        - Separation of sleeping and living units for additional privacy

                                                                        We have been keeping our eye on the wildlife, and it is coming back. I am sorry that you did not get to see as much as you would have liked. When my wife and I went in December, we confirmed that the four iguanas (Larry, Moe, Curly, and Joe) that live on the big island in Chalk Sound are still there. We also saw stingrays, turtles, starfish, and a frog fish on our December trip. I think it is a little hit or miss after the hurricane, but the wildlife is coming back.

                                                                        I was also happy to hear that the vegetation has come back strong. After the hurricane, you could see the neighbors house, but we have a professional gardener that has been working hard to get things back to normal, and it sounds like he is getting the job done.

                                                                        We hope you come back in the future, and you will get to enjoy the new observation deck we are putting in.

                                                                        Villa Serene certainly is fitting to the name

                                                                        Marie C.

                                                                        The home is loved and cared for by the owners. It is in a Serene area with easy access to the beautiful beach. We will definitely return to this beautiful home in cooler months. There is no AC in the main living areas. The main home is extremely warm without AC. Yes there are 3 sets of french doors in the main home to open for a breeze. Unfortunately while we stayed in July, the mosquitos and horseflies didn't allow us to open these doors and or enjoy the main home. The outside deck has no shaded areas.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Marie... Thank you for your review of our home in TCI. We do love our home and how close it is to Sapodilla Bay Beach. My wife and I were there the week before you, and the weather was great up until the end of our week when it rained for 2 days which is most likely what brought the mosquitos. We did not have that issue the week before, and I am sorry that they were there while you stayed. I will be sure to talk to our property manager about options to address that issue when it occurs.

                                                                        Beautiful. Everything was as described!

                                                                        Rick B.

                                                                        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

                                                                        courtney r.

                                                                        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.

                                                                        Fantastic accommodation in the most ideal setting!

                                                                        SuzanneVancouver, BC

                                                                        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.

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.
