Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms on 2 levels with bar, infinity-style pool, hot tub

This unique villa is shaped like an octagon and includes 3700 sq ft of living space on 2 levels. Both levels feature decks that overlook the tranquil, turquoise waters of Chalk Sound.

The lower level has a kitchen, living & dining area, together with 2 bedrooms and a full and half bathroom. The living room includes two couches (one is a sofa-bed), a flat screen TV, DVD player, and xbox. One of the bedrooms has a King bed with french doors that open on to the lower deck and provide magnificent views of the water, The 2nd bedroom can either be set up with a king bed or two twin beds. There is also an side entrance to another 2 piece bath and laundry area beside the pool deck.

The upper level has an great room that spans over 40ft across the back of the villa overlooking Chalk Sound. This impressive room includes two separate sitting areas with 4 couches/loveseats, a bar, and pool table. The bar also includes an ice maker (with purified water) and a cappuccino machine. When the sun goes down and the water views are gone, there is also a large 55' 3D LED TV complete with 3D glasses and DVD player that you can enjoy.

Also included on the upper level are 3 bedrooms. One with a queen bed and an en-suite with a shower, one with a king bed and en-suite with a tub & shower, and a smaller bedroom with two twin beds. There is also a separate 2 piece bath close to the entrance.

The outside of the property offers a Weber BBQ, 2 dining areas and 7 separate sitting areas so that you can have sun or shade at any time of the day (or just get away from the rest of your group - discreetly of course...lol). There is an impressive 42ft long infinity-style pool that is great for doing laps, but also great fun for the family since it is just 4 1/2 feet deep. There are several pool noodles, squirt guns and pool toys are available for your use (and a little machine that blows them up for you!). If the average 75 degree (20C) night time temperatures are too cold for you, there is also a 6-person hot tub available.

The property also features a wonderful, private, sandy cove that is great for younger kids. By the water there is also a dock, and two small kayaks that you can use to explore Chalk Sound.

The villa itself is located about just 10 minutes (5 miles or 8km) from the airport, and 2 miles (3km) from the turn off to Chalk Sound Drive. It is also just 1-2 miles from what I think are the two most beautiful beaches in the world: Taylor Bay and Sapodilla Bay. At these beaches, on a busy day you might find two dozen people sharing a beautiful sandy beach that spans 1000 feet. The water is crystal clear, and at Taylor Bay, you can usually walk out at least 200 feet before it even begins to feel deep.

Also, just 2 miles from the villa is one of the best restaurants on the island, Las Brisas, but if you want to head towards Grace Bay which is about a 10-15 minute drive, you can find dozens of 4-5 star restaurants that would rival the best restaurants in any major city of the world. Whether you want French, Italian, Thai, Japanese, it is all available to you, but you can just as easily find burgers, pizzas or some local chicken or conch restaurants if you want.

There is a convenience store and gas station located just 2 miles (3km) from the property, but for major grocery shopping there is a 'Quality Supermarket' about 5 miles away, or the main IGA supermarket about 10 miles away. Everything is imported, so prices are quite high - especially if you are looking for a specific brand of cereal, toothpaste or coffee - so bring what you can.

A few additional items available to make your stay more comfortable: (1) Toyota Camry Hybrid available for just $50/day (including insurance), (2) prepaid cell phone - can include 100 min/day to US/UK/Canada for just $20/week, (3) Discounted Golf Passes available with your booking (save up to 40% off regular rates) & both left/right handed set of clubs available at the villa for your use - details on the course available , (4) 2 kayaks available free of charge, (5) 4 bikes also available free of charge

About David McGee

This is a picture of our family with Chalk Sound in the background. We are from Toronto, Canada and our kids are 9, 11, 12.

David McGee purchased this villa in 2013

Why David McGee chose Turks & Caicos Islands

We immediately fell in love with the beautiful turquoise waters of Chalk Sound and thought this was just the perfect property for us. Built on the rocks sloping down to the water, it is similar in many ways to a cottage back in Canada, but except for one important difference - it doesn't get COLD!!!

What makes this villa unique

This property is truly unique.

First of all, it is built in the shape of an octagon. Not only does that provide better views of Chalk Sound, but that combined with it's concrete construction makes the building virtually hurricane-proof.

Secondly, it has a small private cove/inlet that we thought would be amazing for our friends (and renters) that have small kids.

Finally, we really loved all of the outdoor seating areas. Many of the villas we looked at only had one deck area by the pool with maybe an umbrella you could use to get some shade. This property has SEVEN separate areas that you can sit and either enjoy the sun, the shade, the waves, or the pool depending on your mood. It is truly remarkable from that perspective.

Chalk Sound is Beautiful but this Villa needs an Update

  • 1 of 5

This was our second time in Turks and Caicos but our first time staying on Chalk Sound. We decided to stay here with our guests for a more private less touristy atmosphere. The views from the property are amazing but the property it's self could use some attention and updating.

With that being said our first night was disappointing to say the least. David had failed to forward our information to his Manager Brenda even though we were booked to arrive on June 14th. The break down happened when he emailed me about our arrival time 2 days before we got there (after I emailed him a week before because we were travelling to Toronto) but didn't give us any details on where exactly the property was or what the code would be to enter the home. We spent 3 hours trying to find the house with our very patient driver who basically used google maps to figure out were exactly in Chalk Sound this villa was, we eventually found it. We left our guest with the bags outside in the blazing hot to pick up our car and went to the liquor store in hopes of wifi and beer (since we were stressing out). A local working at the liquor knew a maid that had worked in the house before, she gave us a number to the realtor that is currently selling the house who then gave us the code to enter the home ( yes, basically divine intervention because we might have had to camp outside or find another place to stay). There was no sign of Brenda or David, even though I tried emailing him and non stop phone calls to which we racked up a hefty bill for international calls.

The place was clean but definitely needs an update and attention. The pool was nice but the hot tub was not working. It would have been nice to know that as that was a big reason we chose this place. We have since asked for a refund of the 1st night but David has not emailed me after my last email on July 6th. For the amount of money we paid and the service we got especially for the first night is simply unacceptable and not worth the money. The only reason why we got in was through pure luck. If we had not stopped into that liquor store we would have never entered the home. Brenda did not check up on us until the next afternoon and we never heard from David while at the property.

We loved Turks and Cacios but will never stay at any of Davids poorly managed properties again. We hope he does return our money for the first nights stay but he doesn't seem to be a person with much integrity.

Owner's Response: I am glad you found the unit clean when you arrived and liked the views from the property. The villa is 20 years old, but has been extensively renovated since I bought it 4 years ago and is exactly as pictured in the photos. There have been some ongoing issues with the hot tub heater, but I am shipping a new heater down to solve that problem before this upcoming winter. I think your primary concern however, was the problems you had with checking in. I do have most of the check-in information available online after booking, but I also usually try and have my property manager meet each guest at the villa when they arrive to provide a tour and explain how everything works. Unfortunately, you did not respond to any of my earlier requests for your flight information so it was impossible for me to arrange that meeting. Apparently, you also weren't able to access the check-in information online either. I appreciate that you were in transit, but I actually live in Toronto so you also could have even made a local call to me the night before to reconfirm the check-in details. The first communication I received from you was at 2:30pm after you had already landed. I believe you did ultimately get into the property shortly after the 4pm check-in time. I did offer you a credit for your inconvenience, but unfortunately I could not agree to provide you with the $1000+ refund that you were asking for. I suppose if I had agreed to that, perhaps the rating would have been different? I guess I will have to just let the 5-star reviews from the guest before you and after you speak for themselves. David

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

My group had such at awesome time at David's Villa. The views were amazing!!! The home was spacious, fabulous, and was well equipped to meet all of our needs. It's like David thought of everything for his guests! David was available via email to answer all my questions before we arrived and the Property Manager, Brenda, was great and accessible during our full stay. I even called her for directions and she offered to come and guide us if needed. This experience well exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend this Villa to everyone.

loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

we spent some wonderful days at this villa. it's easy to find, in great condition, spacious, clean and beautiful. we loved sitting out on the lower deck, having our morning coffees, and relaxing there with some drinks after we returned from exploring the island. there are so many places to sit, unwind and relax, that one is almost stressed about unstressing!!!!! my 82 year old dad loved sitting in the little gazebo close to the private beach, my husband liked the deck, i preferred the deck by the jacuzzi, our daughters loved the pool. the kitchen is very well equipped, the beds are comfy. our marine biology daughter had every paddle board, kayak and seadoo in the water upon arrival! chalk sound is not very deep, therefore the water has a nice temperature and it's really fun to play on your own beach. and the snorkeling is not bad right there. as with most places on this island, we recommend renting a car in order to get around. many thanks, David, to giving us this opportunity, and we will return for sure!!!

Amazing views! Great property!

  • 4 of 5

Very well laid out, lots of space and privacy for multiple families. Lots of beach gear and games for entertainment. Kayaks right at your door. A little outdated, but overall we had a great time at the villa! Would recommend! The views are spectacular! Owner was very responsive.

Beautiful Chalk Sound villa

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for more from this beautiful and spacious villa overlooking Chalk Sound. Morning coffee on the deck overlooking the turqouise waters was a great way to start the day. Villa was clean and spacious with a fully equipped kitchen. The private beach was great and enjoyed the kayaks that were available for use. We noticed that a private beach is rare in Chalk Sound when we kayaked around the other properties in the area so it was definitely a bonus. Many thanks to David and his staff for being so accomodating.
