Overview

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.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Cariad was above our expectations! The house was very well equipped and had everything needed at our fingertips! The four large bedrooms provided all with plenty of room to retreat for some privacy.

The pool and outdoor kitchen were wonderful and used throughout each day. The location on the canal with access to paddle boards and kyacks allowed us to create daily adventures to the mangroves and iguana island right from the back steps of the house!

Our favorite were the Tuna and snorkeling trips that were charted by Captain Danneri!! It was an unexpected surprise to have access to a great boat and captain in our back yard. The convenience was a big plus!

We look forward to returning to Villa Cariad as soon as possible!

This place cannot be beat! We live large and this was our best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

$650 per night for 9 days - 6 of us - July 3 - 12, 2017. 85 degrees every day but good breezes - wear sunscreen.

Grace Bay Car rentals - $712 for 9 days for 8 seater van - can't beat this price and one of only 2 car rental companies on the airport.

Graceway IGA and Graceway Gourmet for groceries - 50-100% higher prices than at home & good!

Patrick Staples the property manager is amazing! A Canadian couple owns this house and it is worth between $1.2 and $1.5M it seems. The house next door is selling for $1.5M.

Villa Cariad has 4 Master Bedrooms at each of the corners of the house. No master bedroom shares any walls so you couldn't get more privacy and they each have full baths. This is so much better than cramming 6 people into a 2 or 3 BR condo with no privacy for twice the price.

Every morning we jumped in the Canal. Tremendous turquoise water! 5 kayaks, 2 SUPs, 4 bikes, 8 beach chairs you can take on a 5 minute ride to Grace Bay and park in Coral Gardens for free - amazing beach and best beach on the island by far. Outside of maybe Bora Bora or Fiji, this is the nicest water in the world.

ABC - Australia, Belize, and Caicos are the 3 biggest and best reefs in the world.

Island Vibes - awesome day of snorkeling and conch eating for $100 a person

Catch the Wave Fishing. We had a half day for 6 people $1500 with taxes. We caught 31 fish and cooked about 10 of them including Mackerel, Grouper, Shark. They were so fresh and out of this world. Did Shark Picatta, Blackened Grouper, Teriyaki marinated mackeral steaks, and beer battered other fish. So fresh and so amazing!

Sea Beluga Catamaran sunset cruise. Again $1500 for 2PM to 8PM sunset cruise. This was by far the highlight of the trip. It is a 40 foot Cat with captain Nic and Adam. If I can add videos I took with my GoPro to this post I will but we literally swam with the sharks, baracudas, and 100s of other beautiful fish. Crazy beautiful and Nic and Adam knew where to go that the tour boats don't. Best hosts ever!

We went to Da Conch Shack and a few other good restaurants. We cooked in half the time and really enjoyed the mansion in paradise. This place is 4,000 SF.

We also lost a paddle and one set of snorkel equipment. The cost would have been about $200 and they told us don't worry about it since we were so honest.

The other thing we loved is staying in the same place for 9 days and not moving every 2 days. This is the life and we WILL be back for sure!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for a great and detailed review of Villa Cariad and some of the great excursion companies that take care of our guests down here. One thing I will correct however, especially since I am also a Realtor down here is that Villa Cariad, with all of the recent upgrades, superior location on the canals, the dock that easily holds our 38' Sportfishing boat (that we offer charters on), is valued between $2.5 million to $3 million US. As you point out, that illustrates what great value Villa Cariad is for our guests. So glad you had a great time here with your family Seb!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

9 family members shared this beautiful property. For my family the outside area with the kayaks, paddle boards and scuba equipment was incredible. The main house had 5 star accommodations. We cooked most days in the well equipped kitchen. Ensuite bedrooms were all separate to afford privacy. We will def be back to Villa Cariad. Patrick was awesome to deal with....

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Donna for your review. It was great to get to meet you and your family and I hope we get to see you again down here to enjoy Villa Cariad. I know Vin was probably most at home in the outdoor BBQ kitchen and can just see him cooking up a storm! Enjoy your summer! Pat

The perfect place for a getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 descended upon Villa Cariad and all of us had any expectations blown away. The home site is gorgeous and lends ample privacy, opportunity for activities and easy access to other island adventures.

The architectural design of the villa is both gorgeous and functional. The villa is perfect for a group as each bedroom is located in a private corner of the house and with ensuite bath. The attention to detail cannot be overstated. The quality and newness of the indoor/outdoor furniture, appliances, kitchen utensils and bedding come to mind.

The outdoor cooking area is a wonderful spot to prepare meals poolside. Lush foliage and blooms add to the tropical setting.

The sound system is terrific and allows guests multiple streaming options. The wifi connection was useful and fast.

We used the kayaks and paddle boards many times and paddled to mangroves and private beaches where we were able to find lots of sea life in the clear water!

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a special corner of the world and Providenciales offers a great mix of natural beauty and amenities. Villa Cariad is the ultimate place to enjoy on it's own or as a jumping off point to explore the rest of the island. We look forward to returning.

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself along with 3 other adults vacationed at Villa Cariad in February 2017. This villa fulfilled my dream vacation. It contains a fully equipped high end kitchen that makes you want to create delicious meals. The 4 bedrooms with their own beautiful bathrooms are so well appointed that privacy is guaranteed and you are able to have quiet time any time of the day. Everything about this villa screams high end. You will not be disappointed! Swim in the beautiful pool while listening to the gentle breezes blowing through the immaculate kept gardens overlooking the beautiful blue canal. Bikes, kayaks and SUP were all available for our use. We loved meeting up every morning in the beautiful appointed lanai to enjoy coffee and stare out at the pool and canal. The boathouse near the pool and canal houses a very handy bathroom. The outdoor kitchen with attached bar was a great place to hang out near the pool while the men grilled our lunches. Drinks are so easy to make with ice always available in the icemaker located in this kitchen as well as indoors. I was awed by all the kitchen equipment including top blenders and even a mixmaster in case you want to bake a cake. Double ovens in the kitchen provided all the unique baking methods you could conjure up. Something for all ages to do included paddle boards and kayaks for a trip to the mangroves where you can make good use of all the snorkeling gear provided. Love, Love this dream vacation property. The property is all one level making it so easy for anyone to get around.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review of Villa Cariad Dorothy! I hope you didn't spend all of your time in the kitchen cooking though, but it sure sounds like you weren't missing anything that is provided. I hope we get to see you down here again some day! Pat

Best rental villa!

  • 5 of 5

My family (age range 7-79) stayed at villa Cariad for a week and couldn't be happier!

Clearly a lot of thought went into creating this perfect vacation home. Four very large en-suite bedrooms offered privacy when needed. The common space was awesome; plenty of seating for all.

The pool area was absolutely beautiful and the access to kayaks, SUP and bicycles allowed us some unexpected family fun!

Patrick was wonderful to work with! We have been renting in the caribbean for 20 years and Villa Cariad was by far one of our best choices ever!

I highly recommend this property, and will definitely be back soon!

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.
