We were in this condo from December 28, 2014 until January 10, 2015.
The condo itself was what we expected, except one thing - it was 25-30 minutes walking distance to IGA Graceway store. Not really possible to walk with all your purchases. You have to take a taxi or rent a car. The taxi from Craceway IGA cost us $20. Kitchen in condo has everything you need for cooking.
Condo WIFI wasn’t very fast for a first few days and I was connecting to somebody else’s wifi. But after that it was good. I was even able to download some programs. Without an internet I cannot imagine our life in TC. We connected to our friends and relatives using Skype when we got bored :)
Beach was 10-15 minutes walking distance away. It depends what way you’ll choose to get there. At the beach you most likely will be alone. I guess this is why people go there.
Owner Joseph was good to communicate with. Fast to answer our questions. His aero bed was very helpful for us. Definitely 3-4 people can stay in this condo. Queen bed in the bedroom was kind of squeaky and hard to move without bothering another person.
I would definitely recommend it to somebody who doesn’t want to see or talk to anybody. Who wants to be alone. It’s very quiet place. The only way to go is first floor. There are no elevators in this condominium. Also this condo can be accessed from 2 different entrances. One is the hill side and other is where the parking is. Make sure you tell a taxi driver where to go otherwise hi will take you where that hill is. We had to carry all luggage up to the room. Same happened with groceries.
Overall this condo is in a good location. We have rented a car and did see all island and now can compare what we saw. If you don’t want to pay $1500 a night than this is your place.
My husband and I spent several weeks at this condo located on a hill overlooking turtle cove. Accomodations were perfect for us with several restaurants, beaches and snorkeling a short distance away. The pool is steps away from the living room sliders and proved to be the perfect spot for afternoon cocktails either by ourselves or with other friendly quests and residents who may be there. You don't need a car but can rent one right across the street should you decide to venture to other parts of the island. The weather was perfect, beautiful beaches, and friendly people. Can't wait to go back next year!
This condo was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay during our honeymoon in Turks and Caicos. It is located centrally on the island, so very convenient to all of the restaurants, beaches, and snorkeling areas. The condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need as well if you decide to stay in and cook meals at home. The pool is right outside of the 1st floor condo and we were able to enjoy the pool by ourselves for the entire week of our stay. The neighbors were all very friendly and it was always very quiet at night. We will definitely stay here again upon our return to Turks and Caicos.
For many reasons, we discovered the Lavin condo at Turtle Cove to be the quiet little refuge from traditional tourist destinations. The condo is centrally located on the Providenciales Island making it convenient to everything we wanted to do. We discovered the Tiki Hut the first day and spent several lunches and dinners there meeting many of the locals there. We scuba dove with Art Pickering at Provo Turtle Divers across the street and saw several sea turtles. We snorkled Smith Reef several times. My wife was able to play tennis with local tennis players at two different tennis clubs. I played 27 holes of golf at the Provo Golf Club on a breezy, cool afternoon. We ate conch all over the island and enjoyed Bambarra rum seeing several sunsets. We recommend several restaurants including Opus, Baci, Hemingway's on the Beach, Magnolia's Wine Bar and Restaurant, Bugaloo's Conch Crawl, and Gilley's Café in the Provendenciales's Airport when you leave! We purchased fresh grouper from Reuben's Red Fish Truck in downtown and cooked in the Lavin's kitchen. Our favorite memory is walking out of the Condo into the swimming pool every day. After the second day, we realized the Lavins' condo to be the best home base for the entire Island for substantial savings at the larger resorts. Thank you Lavins!
Thank you for a great time, you have a great condo with all the comforts of home in a quiet, friendly location, close to beach, snorkeling, restaurants and marina. The proximaty to the pool , about 12 steps, is a bonus, most of the time we had the pool to ourselves morning and late afternoon. Snorkeling at the reefs with the Turtles and the Rays is great fun. You can walk to the grocery store or the four restaurants in the immediate area. Stop by the Tiki Hut in Turtle Cove for friendly service, and good food at reasonable prices. The bar at the Shark Bite was great fun Superbowl Sunday and the fully equipped kitchen makes eating in easy. On Thursdays there is a fish fry at the Bight Beach featuring local food and entertainment also within walking distance. Bugaloos on the beach in Five Cays and Les Brisa on Chalk Sound both have great views and good Conch. Provo is a great place, beautiful beaches with plenty of things to do , friendly people no matter where you go. We are already planning a return trip.
We stayed at this very nice and clean condo. It had everything you would need for a great vacation. The pool was just steps from the condo. Had great restaurants all within walking distance. The owner was great and the beaches were amazing.
Had a wonderful time.
