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

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.
Year Purchased: 2014
About: 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!
Why Leeward Settlement, Turks and Caicos Islands:
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!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
