About the property

Outdoor living daytime and 4 private ensuite bedrooms at night. Paradise found!

Welcome to Villa Cariad! It is truly rare to find a vacation Villa that has been purpose built to offer our guests the comfort of their own bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms! Villa Cariad offers 4 bedrooms and 4 ensuite bathrooms positioned at each corner of this expansive Villa all connected by a massive open living space. This results in total privacy for each bedroom and offers each couple their own retreat after a joyous day in the sun.

Villa Cariad is definite proof that you don't have to be beachfront on Providenciales to enjoy everything that the island has to offer. You will be spoiled by the amenities and layout of the villa, the sparkling pool and outdoor spaces and of course the location of the Villa itself in relation to the Island's amenities. Come and enjoy your time in the sun!

Located in the beautiful turquoise canal community of Leeward and newly renovated, Villa Cariad is close to excursion companies, Grace Bay Beach accesses, the Regent Village shopping zone, Provo Golf course and other attractions in the Grace Bay area. You will want to make good use of the 3 kayaks and 2 paddleboards included with Villa Cariad to explore the canals or even to paddle out to Leeward beach to spend an afternoon in the sand and surf.

The main entrance of Villa Cariad invites you inside to a huge space with vaulted ceilings and floors of polished travertine tile. To the right you will find a living room area with a 60" Samsung "smart" TV, SONOS surround bluetooth sound system, and executive office area. The comfortable furniture begs for popcorn and a favourite Netflix movie or perhaps to cheer on your team with your friends gathered around.

The open and bright gourmet kitchen and dining area for 8 are to the left of the entrance. The rich, dark wood cabinets and island are a beautiful contrast to the Stainless Steel applicances and Corian countertops. The kitchen is equipped with just about anything a group could need to create a gourmet meal every night. The central island is the perfect configuration for the cooking participants and wine drinking observers alike!

Directly in front of you are the three sets of huge French doors that open out onto a screened Lanai area where you will find more seating for casual evening gatherings or to escape the sun in the heat of the day. This is the perfect spot for a game of dominos or cards in the afternoons or to share a bottle of your favourite wine and appetizers before dinner.

As beautiful as Villa Cariad is inside, you are going to love the spaces outside! The screened lanai opens onto the expansive patio and pool area where sun worshipers will spend their time on our lounge chairs or floating in the pool. There are 2 gazebo areas on the patio to enjoy, one with the prerequisite hammock for those afternoons in the shade and cool breezes and the other that could possibly become your favourite spot during your vacation here - the BBQ Pavillion! This Gazebo/Bar is "entertainment central" set up as an outdoor bar complete with a KitchenAid Stainless Steel icemaker and bar refrigerator, double sink, a GE Profile Wine cooler and a massive Jenn-Air BBQ. Imagine yourselves hanging out at the bar concocting your favourite beverages while the steak and lobster sizzle away on the grill!

Beyond the Pool and Patio area is the walkway to the dock. On the left is an outdoor washroom that is part of the dock buildng. The washroom is a great new addition that is conveniently located close to the pool and the canal. Down by the canal is the boat dock where you can launch the kayaks and paddleboards to explore the beautiful turquoise coloured canals of Leeward. You may even see a turtle or two if you look closely while you paddle quietly along. Or perhaps you will want to arrange a day of snorkeling with one of the local excursion companies - they can offer to pick your group up right at your dock. For the adventurous, you can actually paddle right out to Leeward cut and across to Little Water Cay where the protected Iguanas are. Or you can paddle on your own through the mangroves and look for massive turtles or rays that glide through the shallows there. This is all easily reached within a half hour of paddling.

About Patrick Staples

Being frostbitten Canadians for too many years drove us to follow our dream of owning a home in the sun that we could come and enjoy and now share with others seeking a break in the warmth and incredibly beautiful water here. Turks and Caicos offers a beautiful, warm, safe place away from the snowy days that seem to be getting more and more each winter. Villa Cariad offers the comfort of a beautiful home designed with privacy, outdoor living and easy access to the ocean and beaches that Providenciales is renowned for. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do! Cheers!

Patrick Staples purchased this villa in 2014

Why Patrick Staples chose Providenciales

The main attraction to Villa Cariad in Leeward is about the easy access to the water as this is a canal front property. The incredible colour of the Leeward canals is a marvel in itself but this marine community enjoys easy access to the shallow waters of the Caicos Banks to the south, or full access to the north side of the island and deep water beyond via Leeward Channel.

The Villa itself has been recently upgraded inside and out and made this an incredibly attractive property. The interior has been very well thought out with a large bedroom and ensuite bathroom on each corner of the main house offering complete privacy and a central gathering spot inside, outside under cover or fully outside beside the pool or on the dock. There is so much space to spread out and find your own perfect place to settle in to Island life!

What makes this villa unique

Unique and logical floor plan that offers guests their own bedroom living space away from the main gathering areas.

A gourmet kitchen equipped with every modern convenience expected in a luxury Villa and high quality dishes and utensils for a beautiful dining experience.

A Pool and Patio area that offers privacy without feeling at all cramped complete with an outdoor washroom for convenience.

Intimate gathering spaces throughout the property, poolside, under gazebos, in the livingroom, in the shade of the lanai and even dockside.

A 10 minute walk to 3 restaurants and bars at the beautiful Leeward Hotel and Marina.

Located on the canal with direct access to the ocean. The canal is a mesmerizing turquoise colour that is easily explored with a kayak or paddleboard.

I love going south for the new years break but sometimes find resorts to busy. I have never used VRBO until now. I am glad that my family convinced me to try it out. No more resorts for me.

This place is amazing! Big open concept with four bedrooms, one on each corner of the house.(Take a room at the rear of house so you have a walk out to pool and patio).

Loved drinking island rum and just floating around in the pool. For the more adventurous take the paddle boards or kayaks over to the mangroves,or go snorkling in the canal. The boat house has enough kayaks ,paddle boards and snorkling gear to outfit a small army.

The outdoor kitchen was a big hit with everyone,two fridges a sink and a gas BBQ. The indoor kitchen is fully stocked(more spices etc than i have at home) with everything for cooking your own meals. I just kept finding more cooking gear when ever i opened a cupboard.

Leeward beach is less than 10 minutes by bicycle and is great for swimming (Oh yes, there are also bikes for guests).


Can't say enough good about this place no disappointments just good fun with family.

A little slice of heaven

I don't know how to actually put into words how fantastic Villa Cariad is. The pictures of the villa are spot on (which are gorgeous) but it still doesn't do justice to what you will see and experience in person.

I have been to many all inclusive vacations and this is the first time I have ever visited a tropical destination and stayed in a house. I feel like the stay at Villa Cariad has ruined me for all inclusive vacations. The house has everything you could possibly need. The pool and outdoor bar are fantastic especially when you set up the music to play in the outdoor speakers. It's super convenient having the canal right there for kayaking. The beach is very close with white sand and crystal clear water.

We did go out to a couple of restaurants which were good. Definitely do the fish fry on Thursdays nights. Though with the stocked kitchen you could really just eat in the whole time you are there. Did I mention there is a Margaritaville machine? Definitely a plus if you are into slushy rum drinks like I am!

By far the best vacation destination I have been to in a very long time. I can't wait until the next time we go back!

I have visited a few places in the Caribbean but this island is stunning. After a short drive from the airport we arrived at the stunning villa cariad. The photos on line are stunning but seeing the vast open living spaces was breath taking. The living space, bedrooms and ensuite are sheer Luxury. This was a girls only week and the accommodation gave us lots of Space. The Villa provided great resources with bikes, paddle boards and kayaks which we enjoyed and had many hours of fun out in the canal. The beauty and tranquility of the pool area with plenty of loungers and seating areas where we enjoyed coffee in the morning or cocktails in the early evening.

We enjoyed a few meals out but mostly enjoyed the villa and all it offered. Cooking in the outdoor kitchen and music piped in and outside for all to enjoy. The all important tvs for those few rainy hours so you never get board. The owners have thought of everything. Beaches are beautiful with white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters I can't wait to come back very soon and enjoy this stunning beauty in leeward.

Amazing and all the reviews are spot on!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to TCI before and our family of 9 could not have picked a better place to spend 10 incredible days making lasting memories. Upon arrival at the villa, we were greeted by Pat, April, and Michael who after a long day of travel welcomed us with cold drinks and cool towels. Pat, the property manager, is great to work with and was very helpful from the time of booking until our departure. He showed us the property and filled us in on everything we would need for our stay.

The Villa is located in the perfect location for a relaxing family vacation. This home has everything you could possibly need, and we found ourselves staying at the villa more than venturing out to explore the island...The indoor and outdoor kitchen's were fully equipped so we ate at the Villa more than dining out. The pool and music system made it so easy to just hang out back and lose track of time. We were never bored because of all the water toys and amazing canal system right in the back yard.

When we did get out, we found all of the beaches just absolutely beautiful-could'nt decide which one we liked the most. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would love to go back someday.

Stunningly Beautiful, All Management and Workers were fabulous and easy to work with!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived in Turks we were greeted at the airport by Patrick, the property manager and taken to the beautiful Villa Cariad. Upon walking inside we were greeted by April with cold drinks and cold clothes to cool off from our travels. We received help with our luggage and was shown around the beautiful home. Patrick made us feel right at home and gave us suggestions for restaurants along with some excursions. As the week went on we noticed more and more on how well stocked this home was. The kitchen was stocked with gadgets beyond words, In return made us want to eat in more often. There isn't anything that the owner hasn't thought of when stocking and laying out the home. To top it all off was the outdoor pool, gazebo with full outdoor kitchen, new dock house with beautiful bathroom and easy access to canal, fire pit and tons of outdoor seating areas. Please don't hesitate to vacation in this beautiful!!! The pictures don't do it justice.

Incredible Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rent several properties annually for vacation and holidays and we are confident that you will not find a home that is as well equipped as this one! We rented this gorgeous home with three other couples. The layout of the home is well designed, offering each couple privacy as well as several great communal spaces. The wonderful reviews that are posted are well deserved...the owner could write the book on creating the perfect rental property! Pat, the property manager was great to work with throughout the process. (The property was well maintained, the only reason we contacted Pat was to get his advice on restaurant and entertainment options.)

So pack a swimsuit, flip flops, camera and a credit card (you won't need much else) and enjoy!

Owner's Response: It was so great to welcome you and your family from all over the US! I am glad you were happy to stay at Villa Cariad and that you took me up on a few restaurant suggestions too! Seeing you all having fun at Da Conch Shack was a highlight of the week for me and I hope we get to see you down here again some day. Thanks for being such great guests! Pat

Located at the eastern end of Providenciales, Villa Cariad in Leeward is close to Blue Haven Resort and Marina. There you will find Fire and Ice restaurant, Salt Bar and Grill and the Market Deli.

Also located in Leeward is one of the most well respected tour operators, Big Blue Unlimited. A 5 minute walk from Villa Cariad will bring you to the Big Blue office where you can sign up for a number of excursions from diving and snorkeling, paddleboarding in the mangroves, kayaking to see the Iguanas at Little Water Cay and much more.

Leeward Channel is the natural passage between Providenciales and the Cays to the east. This is the base for the ferry to North Caicos if you are interested in seeing more of the Turks and Caicos. Simply arrange a taxi or rental car on North Caicos, board the Ferry and see the sights of North and Middle Caicos.

Leeward is only a 5 minute drive to the Provo Golf and Country club where you will find a very challenging Championship course made more so by our constant trade winds. PGC rents premium Taylor Made clubs so you needn't bring your own clubs with you if you are a casual golfer.

Probably the best benefit to the Leeward neighbourhood and Villa Cariad is the peace and quiet. There are no highways, Leeward is away from the airport and the flight path and there is no real noise from the hustle and bustle we have become so accustomed to in life in large cities. This is your time to settle in for a relaxing and well deserved vacation.
