Terry and Gul Jenkins live in London and discovered the idyllic islands of Turks and Caicos after traveling extensively throughout the Caribbean. They instantly fell in love with the island and promised one other that they would return in the future to build their dream home. Now several years later, they have built a beautiful holiday home they would like to share with others.
Terry is one of the UK’s foremost musicians, having worked with the likes of international superstars: Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Sarah Vaughan, Vic Damone, Robert Farnon, Nelson Riddle, James Last Band, Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Stephan Grapelli, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Royal Philharmonic 'pops' Orchestra and BBC TV Come Dancing. He has played in some of the most illustrious and iconic venues worldwide including Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and Caesar's Palace and also has a prolific recording background contributing to over 2,000 tracks. Terry spent over a decade touring with Tom Jones as his drummer and it was during this time that he met Gul in Barbados. They had a whirlwind romance and married in Tom’s hotel suite in Puerto Rico and, appropriately, he was their best man.
Gul started her career as a designer in Europe where she studied and trained after completing a Masters Degree. Her creativity and artistic flair have earned her recognition from a number of design and fashion houses. She later moved to interior design and her meticulous attention to detail is clearly evident throughout the design and décor of Villa Vivace.
Terry and Gul scoured the island to find the perfect location for their dream villa. It's idyllic waterside setting, proximity to the beautiful beaches and fantastic restaurants will ensure you have a vacation to remember for years to come.

Gul, I wanted to reach out to you and say thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. We were so impressed with how beautiful everything was and we are still in awe at all we saw and enjoyed. Julian did a wonderful job in making us very comfortable. The little extras like the beer in the fridge and chips and fruit set the tone for the whole week. He gave us very good information on all our questions and was a true joy to be around. Your recommendations were very high on our list as well. Dive Provo took very good care of us as well as Grace Bay Car rentals.We loved Somewhere's and have many pictures and memories from the whole experience. My family is still talking about our stay and it appears I will be contacting you again for another visit to your beautiful villa. Again, thank you for answering all of our questions and the direct phone call.
Have a wonderful day and I look forward to contacting you again in the near future.
This was our second stay at Villa Vivace. It felt like our home away from home (only in a better climate!). Gul, the owner of the home, is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her along with Dinesh, the property manager, made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The villa was spotless! The house is caribbean style, big and airy, with large bathrooms and a kitchen that had everything we needed. Being on the canal was fantastic, as well as being near the marina where there are restaurants and a market that we could walk to. The gardens and flowering plants on the property are beautiful. The pool is a perfect size and always a comfortable temperature as it is in full sun all day. We will definitely be back!
First I would like to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa
This was our fourth time to Turks and Caicos but our first time with our kids and grandkids
We had an awesome week of playing learning how to snorkel for the first time the grandkids our granddaughter learning how to swim from the shallow end to the deep end
And exploring all the beautiful beaches there
One beach and the next and the next were more beautiful and breathtaking
Gul Your villa was everything we wanted with the three bedrooms everyone had time if they wanted to be alone to read or just relax
We also had so many beautiful lunches out and dinners we only stayed in one night
The restaurant Hemingway's was excellent also the Beachhouse . Bay Bristo
mango reef. And Tiki hut was great you want a little more local we went to a restaurant called somewhere very nice for drinks
Another good restaurant Is shark bite for something local and a small bite to eat for lunch
Personally we all agreed in the family that tiki hut had the best fish tacos
Thank you once again for sharing your beautiful villa and we were able to make memories that last a lifetime
A great house in a perfect location. We rented bikes and kayaks for the entire stay. A fantastic beach was less than a 5 minute bike ride from the house. Kayaking was great if we timed it with the high slack tide - we made several trips to iguana island. Blue Haven resort and the cafe market were fantastic for being so close. The salt water pool was great. Use Caicos Adventures for all your water needs, they were great. The management company, the yard and pool folks were all wonderful people. It could not have been a better experience.
My family and I recently returned from a 10 day stay at Villa Vivace. For my wife and I this was our 8th trip to Provo and first not staying in a resort setting. In our opinion we couldn't have picked a better option than Villa Vivace. The Leeward section of the island is a quiet residential area with many different villas available for rent. Additionally Blue Haven Resort was a 5 minute walk from the villa and my daughter and her boyfriend walked there on several occasions to have drinks at the bars within this resort.
Villa Vivace will not disappoint with top of the line kitchen appliances, bathroom fixtures, washer/dryer. My wife and I commented that Gul did everything top-notch when she designed the interior of the villa. The beds were comfortable, with high end linens provided. We also felt a nice touch was to have soap and shampoo available in the bathrooms for arriving guests. A welcome basket with fruits, chips, plus water and beer greeted us on our arrival. The villa is very secure with a gated driveway, walled lot and a security, which unfortunately I mistakenly set off a couple of times.
Although we spent a lot of time in the villa pool, we also ventured to Leeward Beach, a 5 minute drive, which we found to be very peaceful and beautiful. Beach chairs and a cooler are provided for guests who want to venture off property and explore the beaches of Provo.
We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality rental in Provo to check out Villa Vivace.
A big thank you to Gul and Terry for allowing us to rent your wonderful villa. We look forward to our next visit.
Six of us (three couples) stayed in this beautiful villa the first week in March 2014. Our first impression was that the place was immaculate and there was plenty of room for all of us. We each had a spacious bedroom with its own bathroom. The furnishings were very beautiful and very comfortable. We spent many nights sat at the breakfast bar sipping wine and listening to music while one of us cooked. We would then move to the large patio outside to eat and enjoy the view of the sail boat lights sailing down the canal at the bottom of the property in the early evening. The pool was crystal clear and was a perfect spot to spend a late afternoon with a cocktail or two. A few minutes walk from the villa was the Blue Haven Marina where some very expensive yachts docked in the turquoise waters. It was fun to look at these at night while having a drink at one of the bars at the luxury Blue Haven resort. This resort also had a swim up bar and restaurant and we were all welcomed at the restaurant and bar for a drink or two and a fabulous meal. Thank you to Julian and his wife, Dinesh, for being so helpful and making sure we were looked after. Thank you Gul, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa, we loved it. We would highly recommend this as one of the best places to stay. We will definitely be back. Diane, Mick, Elaine, Keith, Carol and Mike.
We just came back from Villa Vivace/ Turks and Caicos. We had a wonderful time! The house as mentioned below is terrific. We had a family of four (2 daughters, 17 and 21) who found it spacious, relaxing, and extremely comfortable. The beds are wonderful, the furniture is beautiful. Everything was very clean. Kitchen was easy to cook in and well stocked. Thank you to Dinesh and Julian. You were terrific, friendly and very professional. Gul - thank you for letting us enjoy T/C for the first time in such a wonderful place. Great memories for our family. I can't say enough about the place. We hope to return next year. Make sure you make a reservation at Coco Bistro when you arrive. Awesome experience. Go to the Conch Shack at least once. Dream Tours also has a great snorkeling trip. Everyday we went to a different remote beach. Can't wait to go back. Have Fun!!
