About Simon Henault
Being from the North, our winters are long and harsh, and we really wanted to be able to live outdoors most of the time. Turks and Caicos offers countless, warm, sunny days, plus a safe, comfortable environment that caters to all our needs. We’d visited over 15 Caribbean islands before arriving in Providenciales and sinking our toes into soothing Long Bay beach. My wife Pina and I immediately fell in love with the place and decided Provo was going to be our home. After years of working hard, we picked the perfect spot and built the White Villas collection, thinking that our guests may also be looking for the same thing: a beautifully designed space that encourages both rest and recreation, the perfect setting for quality time spent with family and friends. Make our little paradise yours. Come down and we’ll help you create long-lasting, positive memories… and hopefully provide your best villa vacation, ever :)

My husband and I have always wanted to go to T&C, so when planning our 20th anniversary celebration, we decided to focus on villa rentals so we could have our "own" piece of paradise during our stay. We were celebrating/traveling with another couple, so when deciding on a property, we all felt that White Villa 1 would be perfect for us. And, I must say, we ALL felt as though White Villa 1 was MORE than perfect...it ended up exceeding all of our expectations! From the moment we arrived, the charm of the villa, the beauty of the property, the warmth of the owners, the quiet location, all made for such an amazing experience. In fact, we were so blown away with the villa, that we spent the majority of our week enjoying our "home". We truly felt we had everything that we needed at the White Villa and just enjoyed relaxing by/in the pool...and we all loved the open concept..just opened the garage doors &, voila, it was outdoor living at its best! The breeze was amazing and having a "private" beach just steps away from our front door was SO nice. Whenever we needed/wanted to head over to Grace Bay, it was a quick, less than 10-minute drive across the Island to the grocery store, restaurants, resorts, etc. so you do need a car if you want to explore Provo. We did visit both Grace Bay and Chalk Sound, which were both very nice; however, we preferred our more quiet side of Long Bay. Our highlight excursion was a 1/2 day boat ride with Matt. He took us to some non-touristy areas of T&C and shared some of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. And, most of all, we enjoyed communicating/working with owners who really love "their" Island, as well as their property, and always went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was comfortable as well as memorable...it was truly a trip of a lifetime for us. Until next time...
Hi Heather and Chris,
Soooo happy that the villa exceeded all of your expectations... and that I participated somehow in making your 20th anniversary celebration memorable. Indeed, until next time, perhaps with your children then (or for your 21st anniversary :).
Vacation of a lifetime
After 3 years of vacationing in Grand Cayman @ an amazing resort, we decided we’d like to try something a bit different and rent a home with the goal of stretching our coveted vacation days out a little longer. When we stumbled upon the listing for White Villa 1 we thought we found a perfect fit for us: a beautiful place to stay that would enable us to spend the entire day outdoors, a pool for our 6 year old to enjoy, a beach just a short walk away and the peace and quiet we want out of vacation. From the minute we arrived we knew we made the right decision. Simon, and his son, Max, welcomed us to the property, showed us the house and gave us the inside scoop in the island. My 6 year old was so excited he started swimming in the pool (in his clothes) while we were getting the tour. White Villa is located a short walk (through a pathway) from Long Bay Beach. This beach is a kitesurfing beach that offers shallow waters and complete quiet. Every day we visited the beach we were the only people sitting for at least 100 yards. The breeze is amazing and if you plop your chairs under a tree you can sit there comfortably for hours and watch the kite boarders go by. The layout of the house allowed us to spend all day outdoors. Every day we’d wake up, go downstairs, open the glass “garage doors”, prop the window open and start the day w/ breakfast outdoors. The main benefit of the layout of the house was everyone can be outside but also do their own thing rather than being tied down to 1 activity at a time. Throughout the day we loved using the Sonos system to play background music while we swam, read, ate and relaxed all without going “inside”. In the evenings after our last swim of the day in the pool we’d sit on the upstairs balcony and watch the kites on the horizon while having a drink before we transitioned to our rooms to go to sleep. Each day we’d remark that the days felt so long (which never happens to us on vacation). While we chose to make our meals almost every day (shopping at the local grocery stores which open early) there were no shortage of restaurant options within a few minutes’ drive. On our final night we decided to take Max’s advice and head to Turks Kebab a few minutes away and we are so glad we did. The food was absolutely delicious! Thanks to Simon and Max for the amazing tour of the island to see the Leeward community and Sapodilla Bay. Simon, Pina and Max were absolutely wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed during our time.
Thank you Meredith for your great review. You guys were the perfect guests, really. Say Hi to Kevin and Brandon for us.
ps: Max is really happy you appreciated his tip and that his name is now mentioned in VRBO :)
Breathtaking, stunning, and extremely modern! Pictures do not do this property justice. My husband and I rented this villa for our honeymoon and we had a WONDERFUL experience. We spent the majority of the time in the pool :) The owners were extremely generous and helpful throughout the renting process! They definitely provided legendary service by going above and beyond our expectations. The house is a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - Long Bay! We will definitely return to this villa for future vacations! If you are heading to T&C, I highly recommend this property!!
Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad that you loved our property. It is our priority to make sure that our guests have the best vacation ever. Please keep in touch and again congratulation to you and your husband on tying the knot :)
Where to begin... simply awesome! Our family spent a week at White Villa and in many ways, our expectations were far exceeded. This villa is spectacular in cleanliness, location, style, amenities. From renting the property to meeting us at the villa, everyone was so informative, helpful and accommodating. We cannot say enough to give this Villa the praise it deserves. Loved it.
Best week ever
My wife and I traveled with our long-time friends to Provo. We had been to the island 4 times before (to Beaches in fact, with our kids), but this was the first time we rented a villa. As soon as we turned the corner and saw the bright white villa, we were blown away. The design, the views, the open kitchen, the secluded beach... Yes, the secluded beach and the private pool - it will to be hard to stay in a hotel after this experience. We will definitely be back. A special shout out to Pina and Mike for making the booking process and our stay so easy and relaxing, thanks again!
Walk 3 minutes on the secluded access in front of White Villa and you are on Long Bay Beach. Long Bay is an immense 20 square kilometers sandy bay, one meter deep (at low tide) as far as the eye can see. No current, no coral, no waves, no danger... and just absolutely perfect for beginner and expert kite boarders.
The Long Bay area is sparsely populated and home to just a few private villas, yet only minutes away from the Island's resorts, grocery stores and restaurants, golfing, tennis courts, marinas, casinos and other attractions.
