4/5 bedroom family villa - uninterrupted views of Juba Sound & amazing sunsets
Westview has undergone some recent remodelling after Hurricane Irma and is now ready to receive guests. We have recently replaced the roof with a cooler white standing seam roof, opened up the kitchen into the dining room to offer an open plan kitchen/dining area, built an outdoor bar complete with fridge and bar stools and replaced all of the outdoor patio furniture.
Westview is located in the quiet, rural neighbourhood of Long Bay, our traditionally built 5 bedroom family home is situated on Sea Sage Hill Road, which has the highest elevation in Long Bay, offering 180 degree views of Juba Sound National Park and Long Bay Beach and providing almost constant cooling breezes. Long Bay canal also runs at the end of the property. Long Bay feels a world away from the resorts of Grace Bay and offers tranquility beyond expectations, yet, it is only a short 5 minute drive, should you wish to enjoy the spoils of Grace Bay.
The majority of the accommodation is on the ground floor and comprises of a spacious living room with vaulted ceilings, newly remodelled open plan kitchen & dining room, master king bedroom suite, 2 twin bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are ensuite. The upstairs offers an open and airy floor plan where the second master suite is located, comprising of a queen bed, seating area and ensuite shower room. All bedrooms have central AC.
Fully opening sliding patio doors open up to the pool deck which has spectacular views of Juba Sound and provides the most amazing nightly sunsets. On the pool deck there is an outdoor bar with fridge, outdoor dining area, conversation set and a variety of sun loungers, chairs and hammock both in the sun and shade. All outdoor furniture was upgraded in August 2017. There is also a gas BBQ grill for easy home entertaining.
The fully equipped kitchen is has quartz counter tops and stainless steel appliances including a wine/beverage cooler. There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer, should you need to do laundry!
The living room has a 55" flat screen smart TV with blue ray home theatre system with Netflix. Wifi is available throughout the villa.
The newly converted basement suite houses the 5th bedroom. This is a self contained suite, accessed by a separate entrance. It comprises of a double sofabed, comfortable seating, shower room and kitchenette. This space also doubles as a home theatre ideal for the children or young adults in your party. This area also has its own private shaded deck with views over Juba Sound. This suite can be included in your rental at an additional charge, please ask the owner.
Providenciales has something for everyone! There are so many water activities to take advantage of: snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, deep-sea & bone fishing to name a few. Horseback riding, golf, golf lessons, tennis, casino and shopping in Grace Bay are also all located minutes away from Westview.
There are several grocery stores on the island but Graceway better known as IGA is located on Leeward Highway about 10 minutes away from the villa and its new store Graceway Gourmet is minutes away from our home as you head into Grace Bay. There is also a full service pharmacy and bank located in this area as well as numerous restaurants and bars in the Regent Village just off the main Grace Bay beach.
Should you wish to explore the other islands of the Turks and Caicos further you can take a day trip by ferry to the other islands or book a beach cruise with tour operators based at Leeward Marina which is a short 5 minute drive. Iguana Island, the Conch Farm & 'The Hole' are some of the more local attractions you may enjoy visiting.
Westview shares the grounds with Westview Gardens, a 2 bedroom cottage which is also available to rent (VRBO property number 717440) This can be booked either by itself for 4 people or together for groups larger than 10. Please contact owner for details.
We hope that you will consider booking Westview. Please feel free to email or call if you would like further details, we would be delighted to help you.

About Sarah Haywood
My husband and I have lived in Turks and Caicos since 1996. When we moved to the islands we lived at the end of Sea Sage Hill Road and fell in love with the tranquility and rustic nature of Long Bay. Eventually, we bought this lot and developed it as our family home.
Sarah Haywood purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Sarah Haywood chose Long Bay
Westview is a family friendly villa. It has been our family home since we built it 12 years ago. Our children now go to school overseas so we thought we'd like to share our home with others, so they can enjoy the wonders of Providenciales.

Great house + Great price
If you are looking for a place with a lot of space inside and out...This is it ! The fabulous kitchen is truly very well stocked. The patio and pool were pure bliss. We were 6 adults and 3 small children and we had lots of room. The copious kids toys and games were a real blessing. The “house attendant “ was very helpful, patient, and courteous. Everything was clean and in good repair. Two small issues we have are the beds in the twin bedroom were uncomfortable for adults and the garbage pickup was insufficient/sporadic. We cooked and ate in a lot. We were very comfortable here. This is a place with a lot of amenities and we loved our stay.
Thank you for taking the time to write us such a nice review. We’re thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for alerting us to the garbage issue, we use the government service and unfortunately it can be sporadic!
Thank you again for staying with us.
Great House Great Hosts
We had a wonderful stay at Nick and Sarah's house. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and welcomed. The house is spacious and easily fit two families of four. The pool was great to cool off in any time of the day. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds were comfortable and linens and towels were plentiful. There were beach umbrellas, chairs, coolers and toys to use if desired. The house was clean and when needed the AC worked great. We had an atypical stay in that we were there for over a month. There were a few minor issues that came up as would with any house and Nick handled them immediately. Both the house and the owners get 5 stars out of 5.
Thank you so much for your review. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back, should you wish to stay again.
Kindest regards, Sarah
Very Comfortable Home, Great Experience with Owner & Good Price
I booked this home in March 2017 for a 5 day getaway to celebrate my friends' birthday. We were a group of 7 girls, visiting Providenciales, Turks and Caicos for the first time. From my initial contact with the owner of the house we had a great experience. She was very responsive to all my questions, usually under 24 hours. She also gave suggestions for places to eat and go to. Booking with this owner was also a very simple process. When we arrived, her onsite manager gave us a local phone to use, which was helpful.
The pictures are quite accurate to what the house actually looks like. Overall, the home was comfortable. The kitchen was equip with everything we needed from dishes, pots and pans, an ice maker and even spices for cooking. She also has coolers and beach chairs for beach trips. The house also came with a washer and dryer which was helpful for washing towels when coming back from the beach (also provided by her).
The master bedroom is amazing - with an extremely comfortable bed, big shower and bathtub. The topping on the cake was the mirror in that bathroom perfect for applying make up. The other rooms were pretty comfortable as well each with it's own bathroom. Please keep in mind the bathroom to the first bedroom is not inside the room but directly across. The living room was very spacious and had a good size TV and sound system. The house also comes with a pool, we didn't use it because it needed a little cleaning but it looked like it could've been refreshing. There was also a hammock that was very comfortable - I may have taken a few naps on there. To top everything off, there were two outdoor fire pits which we used to make s'mores and an outdoor dining area which was great for morning breakfast. The overall location of the house was pretty quiet, you will need a car though. There is a supermarket and bank nearby and it was pretty simple to get around.
If the option was available on here I would give it 4.5 stars, only because the wifi was a little wonky when all 7 people were in the house (understandably) and the room across the master didn't have warm water many times. Aside, from this my friends and I agree the house is recommendable, especially for the great price.
Thank you for taking the time to write us such a lovely review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us.
I'm sorry that you had an issue with the hot water in the blue bathroom, thank you for bringing it to my attention, we have had it fixed. I hope it didn't impact your stay to much.
We'd be very happy to host you again should you wish to return. Please spread the word.
The house was very nice and clean. The view was also gorgeous and very relaxing. We hardly use the AC because the breeze was just that good. I would like to thank you for the quick responses from the inquiries to booking and making the process smooth. It was 9 of us traveling and the house accommodated us comfortably. The only thing is after our 2nd night for some reason we were unable to use the wifi anymore which made it hard to contact our family members while at the house. Besides that great house for big family.
Thank you for your very positive review of Westview, we're so happy you enjoyed you stay and glad that you could enjoy your celebration.
We can only apologise for the internet issue that you experienced during part of your stay, unfortunately there was a problem with the service provider in the Long Bay area, which was beyond our control. We hope it didn't spoil your stay too much.
Great home...great experience!
From the very first contact, the owners were responsive and willing to go the extra mile to assist me plan a stay for my manager. He stated the home was beautiful, clean, well cared for and had everything that one would need. A somewhat remote location, but yet, less than 4 miles to grocery, fuel, and restaurants. The internet service was excellent which was important for my manager to continue to conduct business while away. Overall, it was a very positive experience!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a lovely review. We are delighted that your boss loved Westview and that he enjoyed his stay in the Turks and Caicos. It has been a pleasure working with you and I hope that we can work with you again I the near future. Kind regards. Sarah
Great house that we will rent again
Responsive owners, well kept house, furniture and kitchen. Very clean, nice pool and a lovely view over the salina-particularly for sunset. This is a quieter part of the island and perfect for our group of 6. It was a good area for our morning runs. Easy access to whatever part of the island one wishes on any given day-we tend to roam and were all over the island. Over our many years of visiting Provo, we have stayed in virtually all areas, and the quiet of Long Bay really suited us at the end of long days at play-snorkeling/bodysurfing/golf/boating/beach walking/cliff jumping/tennis. The kitchen had everything we needed as we cook frequently-even that elusive item in a rental, a sharp knife! Pots and pans that worked to feed 10 when we had friends over. We didn't bother with AC but the bedrooms all are equipped for those that prefer AC. It was a bit breezy for our visit so we never got to try out the campfire but the 5 burner Charbroil gas grill worked great.
Dear Provo fan.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a wonderful review. Your review really sums up our home. You're quite right about a sharp knife it's one of my pet peeves too! We look forward to welcoming you back to Westview soon. Kind regards Sarah
