My husband and I just spent an exquisite week at Villa Camilla celebrating our babymoon. The house is stunning - particularly its gorgeous vistas of Grace Bay, amazing tropical gardens, proximity to the beach, incredible private pool (a true oasis!), spacious layout, fresh breezes, and sense of privacy.
Upon arrival at the Provo airport, the house manager met us and oriented us to the island and home, which was pristine and well-stocked with towels and kitchen essentials. We thoroughly enjoyed sunsets on the deck (as well as the house-recommended recipe for rum punch (rum-free for me!!)). For those who like to cook, we recommend the grill on the spacious deck. The nearest supermarket is about a five minute drive from Villa Camilla, making it quite convenient to stock up on food and drink!
Though somewhat limited in activity levels due to pregnancy, while in Provo, we enjoyed long walks along and swims in Grace Bay and the Villa Camilla pool, a trek to Malcolm Beach and the North Point National Park, a trip to Bugaloo's in Five Cays, the Concha Wonka tour (including Conch Farm, Cultural Center, and Conch Shack), and a lovely snorkel cruise aboard the Atabeyra. We also enjoyed outstanding cuisine; among our favorites: Hemingway's, the Sunday night beach barbeque at the Seven Stars resort, the Tiki Hut, Somewhere, the Beach House, and Magnolia (phenomenal!!). For afternoon drinks (non-alcoholic for me!), we enjoyed Somewhere, the bar at the Gansevoort (ask for Desmond), and the Villa Camilla deck.
We loved our time at this beautiful home and on this special island, and only wish we had been able to stay longer. We look forward to returning in the not-too-distant future with our little one in tow!! Cannot recommend highly enough - magnificent in all respects. Villa Camilla is a true gem!
