|Minimum Stay||7 - 14 nights|
Casa Conchiglia (Shell House) is a private three bedroom, three and a half bath Oceanfront home situated on the south shore. Each of the three bedrooms (2 ocean view ) include en-suite bathrooms and flat screen tv's.
The villa is located close to Leeward Marina and only a 5 minute drive to Grace Bay Beach and Grace Bay Road where guests will find dining, groceries and entertainment.
Open the huge glass doors and allow the constant tradewinds to keep you cool. A true indoor/outdoor tropical expierience.
You may choose one of several areas to dine-in; casually around the huge granite island, the formal dining table or 'alfresco' in the covered screened porch.
The high end gourmet kitchen is well equipped with appliances. An Induction/Convection range allows the chef in your group to flourish without feeling stuck in the kitchen.
The living room has an entertainment center which hosts a 65' 3D Flatscreen TV, 3D bluray, Bose stereo with I Pod/Phone dock.
A 12'X24' plunge pool with relaxing lounge chairs is a heavenly way to spend your day in the sun.
Need a change of scenery or less wind? Take the stairs to the lower patio where you can truly escape. Only the sound of the rhythmic waves invades your privacy. Natural steps make it easy to get in and out of the ocean. High tide, you can jump off the rocks (55'deep), low tide (18'deep) just step in (water shoes help).
The patio is built on the iron shore, great for those people that hate sand in their toes!
There is a small snorkeling spot approximately 400 yards down the shoreline.
Casa Conchiglia is the culmination of many years visiting Provo. All that we loved has been included, ceiling fans in all rooms (including bathrooms), the colors and the furnishings. Even the paintings by local artists are based on original photo's from years of diving the turqoise waters of The Turks and Caicos Islands.
It is MESMERIZING!
We have been traveling to the Turks and Caicos Islands for over 10 years. Previously owning property at the Sands, we decided that the Turks and Caicos was were we wanted to spend time when we retire. Over a three year period, we designed and built our 'Island Home'. We named our home Casa Conchiglia which means 'Shell House' as generations of locals have collected conch along these shores. There are thousands of 'Knocked' conch shells left behind as testament to this harvest. This tranquil home and its view exceeds our expectations continously. Enjoy.

The View, The Colors and The Serenity of the ocean
Grace Bay 5 minutes away where there are Restaurants, Groceries, Shops and Entertainment.
The Fact that Grace Bay is 5 minutes away and not here...
We have just arrived back from a magical week in Turks and Caicos. We have visited T&C many times and decided we wanted to branch out from our normal location of Turtle Cove. I emailed and called Suzanne a few times as I was very hesitant to try something new. I am so glad we did! From the moment we arrived until the very last momemt before we left we were mesmerized by the view! This is truly the best view we have ever seen! The photos absolutely don't do it justice. It was as if we were in a trance...... I have been all over the work and have stayed at many fabulous resorts and private villas and this is by far the best one!
We were so fortunate to meet David and Suzanne as they were departing from their stay in their beautiful home. We immediately hit it off and hated for them to leave for the airport. They thought of absolutely everything when building their dream home. The kitchen is a cooks dream and we actually ate in most nights as opposed to going out. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook any meal you can imagine. We typically do out for dinners but we hated to leave and ended up cooking and eating in and enjoying the view. I can't stop talking about the view.
They thought of absolutely everything... from the super comfortable beds, high quality linens and towels and even chair covers for the pool chairs. We didn't need a single thing and it was as if we were staying in someone's well stocked home as opposed to a rental vacation villa. We know that this was by design as this is their home and they want all their guest to feel welcome. We are already making plans for our next trip.
I visited the Villa in late October 2012, shortly after Sandy came through the islands. I couldnt have asked for a better place to escape the East Coast storm than this villa. The views are absolutely breathtaking, the space is perfect and the relaxation level is at a maximum at every moment. Whether you are out on the deck, lounging on the shaded porch or pouring yourself a drink in the stunning chefs kitchen, you wont forgot you are on vacation the entire time. We ended up cooking more than we thought, which was a good thing. There is a grill readily available which made it very easy to whip up a couple meals. The sleeping arrangements are perfect, every bedroom has its own bathroom, all have overhead fans and AC units. They are also all private, which makes it perfect for couples traveling together. Although this villa isnt right on the beach, it is on the ocean. There is great water access and a nice patio with lounge chairs. Also, we had a car, and the drive to the beach and the main drag of the island is maybe five minutes. We had a couple beach days and it was almost a relief to go back to our spacious villa when we were done with the sun. After our amazing/memorable/one of a kind vacation, I don't think we would ever consider another villa, we found our match.
If you are looking for the most beautiful and serene surroundings in the Turks and Caicos, Casa Conchiglia is the villa. The owners, who I have come to know because of their exceptional customer service, offer beautiful furniture, TVs, Internet, amazing beds and a state of the art kitchen. The minute I arrived I felt the stress melt away as I looked straight ahead and there was the amazing view of the aqua blue water of the Turks. The views from almost every room are breath taking...morning and night. The master bedroom is separate from the other bedrooms with a walk in closet, a private deck, and luscious outside furniture.
The Villa has a beautiful infinity pool where you can enjoy sunbathing and stare at the beach and water below. It is surrounded with 6 very comfortable loung chairs
The second bedroom is like a master with its own porch. It also has the view of the ocean.
The only time I left the villa was to go to the market which is a great IGA. We cooked every night, barbecued steaks, and enjoyed the full moon over our heads. We watched movies on the 56 inch TV in the living room and could also eat at the island in the kitchen area or sit at the beautiful dining area.
The area for hanging with friends is all open and grand as you can see in the pictures.
I will never stay anywhere else. Nothing can top the extraordinary Villa Conchiglia.
Our visit to the Turks and Caicos was just heavenly. Previously ( our 6th trip to t and c) we had stayed on Grace Bay so this was our first visit to Long Bay and it was perfect. We wanted a trip that was more secluded and not among a crowd at the beach. Yet, in 5-10 minutes we could be at many reataurants , grace bay beach, or leeward beach. The house is very new and pristine with great amenities from the comfortable furniture ,beds and bedding to the appliances , cookwear and outdoor chaise lounges! The plunge pool is a delight and the lounges are so comfortable! In addition there is a patio down at the water, perfect for sunset cocktails. There is an easy path into the water and perfect for an afternoon swim. The property is very clean and maintainted ( newly built ) and the owners were a pleasure to work with . I would recommend Casa Conchiglia without hesitation and we are already planning a return visit. It is better suited to adults ( 2-3 couples) and is not for those with small children. Unlike some properties I have rented, The pictures very accurately depict the beauty of this property! And did I mention the view??? Unbelievable - esp the morning sunrises!
