The Owners of Allamanda Cottage met each other in the Turks and Caicos Islands in 1989. As international school educators, with global teaching experience, the owners currently live and work on island. Building the property in 2005 and living in the main house, the owners enjoy an outdoor lifestyle with their 2 daughters, who have grown up playing on the shores of Turks and Caicos Islands. We have family cats, that spend most of the day cat napping under the shade of palm trees. We respect the peace and tranquility that visitors seek and request that all who visit our shores leave only footprints and take only memories.

David O'Connell purchased this studio in 2005

Having met each other here in 1989, we were instantly captured by the beauty, safety and allure of these magical islands. The depth of colours in the waters and the warmth of the people that we got to know made our life in TCI memorable. After years of teaching in SE Asia, we returned to TCI to find that it was unchanged and remained remarkably undeveloped. We purchased our land and then eventually built a home in 2005.

EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR

  • 5 of 5
We can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay with David, Amanda. We had a wonderful week. David met us at the little airport and drove us to the car rental and then led us to the property. It's at the east end of the island, away from the hotels and condos. The little cottage was clean and well maintained and David and Amanda were perfect hosts; available when we needed to talk with them or ask questions and giving us plenty of privacy.

We would definitely recommend this property and in fact, we made a deposit for two weeks next winter.

The beach is about a 15 minute walk but is splendidly isolated. One morning we walked and saw only a few people. There's a wonderful restaurant, Flamingo a few minutes away - the curried grouper was great. They're cash only, about $50 for two, including drinks.

Graceway supermarket is only a few minutes away and I would say it's on a par with a Harris Teeter in the US. Rib-eye steaks were great (Dave has a grill by the pool) and they also have a great gourmet counter.

Don't miss Coral Gardens Beach, a few miles up the beach. It's an underwater national park where you can snorkel and see lots of beautiful fish. Dave and Amanda had great beach chairs with umbrellas, so make sure you take them along in the car.

We also took an afternoon snorkeling trip with Big Blue. They were great and not only took us to a couple of reefs, but gave us a chance to see humpback whales jumping.

Everyone we met on the island was friendly and helpful.

We can't wait to go back next year! Really glad we found this place.

A PEACEFUL SOJOURN IN PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful time I had at this very quiet, secluded little cottage. It was my second visit to Turks, and was even more memorable than last year. The property is located just a short stroll away from the most beautiful beach in Provo... white powder sand, gentle waves and warm water. If you head left and walk the beach for a while in this direction, you will end up close to the larger resorts on Grace Bay; however, if you turn right it is mostly secluded and you can walk all the way around the north eastern point almost to the marina. Jogging is good, too, when the tide is low.

You are a 10 minute drive to Provo Ponies (a must!), a 5 minute drive to the ferry taking you over to North and Middle Caicos. These islands are also wonderful places to visit, and they each have quite a different topography in comparison to Provo.

My hosts, Amanda and Dave, were ever so helpful with their extensive knowledge of the island. Yogi (the puppy) was a delight!

Thank you both so much and I will definitely recommend your home to others.

COZY COTTAGE BY THE BEST BEACH IN PROVIDENCIALES

  • 5 of 5
We spent 14 days at this cottage and it was great. The cottage had all that you would need and was clean. Thank you to our gracious hosts for creating this cottage in paradise. This cottage is so close to the most perfect beach and is close to all amenities in Grace Bay. Make sure you rent a car when visiting this island unless your intention is to stay at a resort and not venture out. Snorkeling was fantastic. Our hosts were very helpful with suggesting things to do and see as well as loaned us their Kayak for an adventure to the mangroves and Iguana island. Eating out is very expensive in Provo so we suggest that you cook your own meals for the most part, although our hosts suggested many great places to eat as well. We toured most of the island and if you want to stay some place that is safe, this is the place to choose. Thank you again to our wonderful hosts.

LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have traveled extensively in the world, and while we have met many kind and hospitable people in our travels, it would be hard to top the kindness extended to us by David and Amanda, our hosts. While we were in Turks and Caicos, we needed to attend a special event, and not only did they offer to drive us there, they picked us up also, later on that evening; and that was just the beginning. David bought a two person kayak while were there and let us take it over to the gorgeous mangrove island near Leeward. Again, he dropped us off with the kayak and picked us up a couple of hours later. By the time we left, we felt more like family than guests. As for the place itself, it is small basic and very clean with a very private screened in porch. You can even cook basic meals in the unit. A quick five minute walk or leisurely ten minute walk takes you to a beach that is as deserted as it beautiful. (If you see a dozen people, it is crowded that day.) If you stroll one way down the beach, you come to fine and affordable beachfront restaurant after twenty minutes, that serves excellent food. If you stroll the other way, you pass a few abandoned and derelict luxury homes and come to a sandy point that marks the north east point of the island. You will probably be almost alone out there. The place is a couple of kilometers from the main street of Provo and renting a car or bicycles (which we did) is recommended. The area is incredibly quiet at night and the only annoyance of the whole trip was few tiny biting insects which did not really interfere with our overall experience. If you are satisfied with clean basic accommodations that offer you quick access to one of the most beautiful stretches of beach you will ever see in the world, this place is for you. No, it is not the cheapest place to go, but many of the experiences that you have will be priceless!

SIMPLY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Turks and Caicos was simply perfect. We are so happy that we were able to stay at this Leeward cottage. The location was wonderful as it was close to everything we needed and easily accessible by bike. David was so lovely to pick us up from the airport, take us to the grocery and then to the bike rental office to get our bikes. We were completely ready to begin our Turks and Caicos adventure in no time! We settled into the cottage quickly. It was wonderfully arranged and had everything we needed for a comfortable weeks stay. We enjoyed cooking our meals and enjoying them on the wonderful screened in porch at the back of the cottage. The neighborhood of Leeward is amazingly quiet and peaceful. It is only a moments bike ride or quick walk to the lovliest beach on the island. We were also very pleased to be so close to Big Blue Unlimited adventures and water sports company. We spent almost everyday with them in one way or another. We went on their Heart of the Islands tour, a Kayaking adventure to Iguana Island and through the mangroves and a two tank scuba diving trip that was simply breathtaking. We also did the scuba refresher course with them beforehand since we were a bit rusty. We really enjoyed eating lunch at the Flamingo and Da Conch Shack and loved the pastries and fresh bread from Caicos Bakery. We just cannot say enough good things about our stay at this cottage and the beautiful Turks and Caicos. Thank you so much again and again to David and Amanda for making certain our trip was simply perfect! We would return to the cottage in a heartbeat! Erika and James Decker
