VILLA ROSSO DI SERA- OVERLOOKING PICTURESQUE TAYLOR BAY & CHALK SOUND

Providenciales - Provo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Villa Rosso di Sera is a spectacular retreat home in a Caribbean style with a Mediterranean feeling. Set on a ridge overlooking picturesque Taylor Bay on the ocean and iridescent Chalk Sound , it captures the ocean breezes which naturally flow through the entire house.

Spacious living and dining areas are enhanced by a fully equipped kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and also has an adjacent wet bar that is a natural area for conversation.

The four well appointed luxurious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are situated to maximize unique views. All bedrooms have king size beds with two of them able to be separated into king singles. The bedrooms are spread over the three floors, allowing much privacy for a variety of accommodation

Designed and built by the owner who is a builder by profession, it is the result of studying Caribbean style for over 20 years. There are screened areas to dine and relax, a total of four places to dine in the house and around the pool. The upper floor has terraces with ocean views on three sides so there is always a right place to catch the breeze or take a nap. Nestled on one of the many porches is a double hammock for that necessary afternoon drift off!

The fully mature tropical landscaping provides a secluded feeling to the property, especially around the walled pool and generous deck area. The pool is 16 x 26' with an generous stair entry on one side that doubles as a conversation pit. The pool is 4'-6' deep which makes it very safe for children and adults but still allows for swimming lengths. The walls around the generous 2000 sf. pool deck makes the villa a very attractive setting for family gatherings and special events.

Attention to architectural detail is a hallmark throughout the house -the finishes are rustic and relaxed. Entirely trimmed out in Caribbean cedar inside and Western Red Cedar outside, the color palette is a mix of pale yellow, ocher and reddish browns that is soothing to the eye.

Other amenities include a private gym, a spacious hot tub, flat panel television in every room, Wi Fi throughout and kayaks. Guests have the use of private tennis courts nearby.

Above all, a short 2-3 minute walk brings you to secluded Taylor Bay Beach which rarely has more than a few people on it's entire half mile length. The water is usually quite warm as it is a protected lagoon and the fine white sand and shallow slope to the beach makes it especially appealing for young children and adults alike. The villa comes equipped with kayaks , beach chairs , beach umbrellas, coolers and snorkeling equipment, all of which enhance the beach experience.

The owners maintain a small guest house on one corner of the property that is strategically situated to ensure your privacy. When they are on island, they are there to be of any assistance as need be , but otherwise practice 'invisibility'

Wonderful time-3 generations

  • 5 of 5
We loved our visit to Turks & Caicos. The home was comfy, well-maintained and clean. We really enjoyed taking the kayaks out on the sound to visit the iguana island--we saw at least 15 wild iguanas. We cooked most of the time and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need! It was difficult for my 72 -year -old mother to climb the steps up to the house because they are natural stone and no railing to get you up those last few steps, but once inside she had no need to leave the main level. Tips-go to chinsons to eat-- amazing food. Shop at IGA. Go on Caicos dream tours--conch tour, snorkel, "hunt conch" and they prepare it for you! Snorkel by the bight. We normally spend $200 per week for groceries in the states-we spent closer to $800 on the island, and ate out three times during our one week stay....dining out ran us around $160 with tip for 6 people each meal. I also packed a medium sized hard shelled suitcase with peanut butter, waffle mix, syrup, cereal (which was $10 per box on the island), jelly, Pringles, and other misc dry good foods-no problems with customs. The empty suitcase stored our three conch shells and starfish plus other miscellaneous souvenirs purchased.

Owner's Response: We quite enjoyed seeing this great family enjoy themselves, even if the grocery bill was high.
There are some good recommendations in this review for visitors to take note of. We recommend bringing in some food as well to cut down on your expenses here as everything is imported.

Wonderful and private home

  • 5 of 5
I and my wife spent 4 wonderful days at Villa Rosso Di Sera. We had a truly great vacation and the majority of the credit for that goes to Ken and Nancy's wonderful villa. Although Ken and Nancy were staying in the guesthouse on grounds, we only saw them when we had questions or requests (which they always addressed promptly) and we felt in no way that they detracted from our privacy. The wifi was great and we were provided with an island cellphone as well as a phone with a U.S. number for free calls back home, a very unexpected and appreciated surprise!
The villa itself reflects a tremendous amount of care and attention to detail by the owners. The structure is spacious and well thought-out, with superior quality, comfortable furniture and décor. There are a large number of comfortable decks with great views.
The beauty of the pool and the area surrounding it is draw dropping. The pool itself is very large and beautiful and the entire pool area is largely surrounded by trees, contributing to an ethereal feeling of seclusion and privacy.
The location of the villa, right near Taylor Beach, was perfect for us. We went out kayaking with the kayaks provided with the villa and spent most early morning pretty much having the beach to ourselves. In general, this part of the island is very sparsely populated and is very secure and non-commercial.
I would specifically recommend this villa to other orthodox Jewish guests who particularly value privacy. The pool is not overseen by other houses and Taylor Beach, in addition to being beautiful, is also far away from the typical tourist beaches and during our stay rarely had people swimming in it.
In short, we greatly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend Villa Rosso di Sera.

Spectacular!

  • 4 of 5
Villa Rosso Di Sera was everything we could of hoped for and more.... The pictures are truly representative of the beautiful space and the owner was a real delight for booking the property and making sure all our needs were provided for. We were a large group residing together and each family had a bedroom on a different floor which gave everyone some personal space. The pool was a real hit with the kids and adults! The 5 minute walk to the beach was perfect to come back to the villa for lunch or the kids to nap. We also rented a car to go around the beautiful island which is not necessary but fun. All in all it was a spectacular vacation and I truly recommend this superb villa to make it unforgettable.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous week at the Villa. We could not have imagined a more beautiful and well equipped vacation home. We were three generations ranging from age 9 months to 70 years old and each and everyone of us had an amazing time. The house was spacious providing each of the 3 families with privacy and comfort as well as plenty of common space to enjoy time together.

We loved the pool (especially granny!) and the beach was kid friendly and an easy walk from the house. We took the kayaks (with two kids) to Chalk Sound, played tennis and spent many hours lounging by the pool and building sand castles at the beach. Sunsets at the beach were a highlight.

A big thanks to our hosts for a great vacation. We hope to be back next year.

A Gem of a House!

  • 5 of 5
We can't stop raving about our stay at Villa Rosso di Sera and have encouraged several friends looking at visiting Turks & Caicos to book this villa. Villa Rosso di Sera is ideal for intimate, relaxing beach vacations.

We visited Villa Rosso di Sera for a birthday celebration that included my husband, 3 year old daughter, myself and a dear family friend. We chose Villa Rosso di Sera specifically because it offered both a pool and a short walk to Taylor Bay Beach, the best of both worlds. We couldn't have been happier or had a more relaxing vacation.

The villa is located between Chalk Sound and Taylor Bay in a residential neighborhood. It's a short walk to Taylor Bay Beach, which was never crowded. What we appreciated about the location was not only the privacy but also the proximity to the beach. In fact, each night just before sunset, we would cart our beach chairs and a cocktail down to beautiful Taylor Bay Beach and unwind while we watched the sunset. It was breathtaking. During daylight, with it's crystal clear, calm, shallow waters, Taylor Bay Beach is a great choice if you have small children.

As you can gather from the photos and description, every detail about this villa is well thought out by its owner, Ken. The floor plan was ideal - the bulk of the living area is on the main floor and there are plenty of dining / conversation spots. The master suite upstairs and fourth bedroom downstairs afford anyone seeking it, a quiet respite. Personally we loved the kitchen (and grill), which was stocked with an assortment of pots & pans so we had the option of eating out or dining in and with a 3 year, this was a life-saver!

The property is clean and very well kept. The villa is stocked with plenty of beach chairs, towels & toys, including two kayaks which we took out on Chalk Sound one morning. The pool was a huge hit with our little one, she loved being able to take a quick dip before breakfast and we loved the convenience of letting her swim with an adult while we got ready to head to the beach.

Ken, the owner was extremely helpful and gracious. He answered any of our questions and was more than happy to point us toward a few local dining spots.

I know this review is getting long, there are just so many positives about Villa Rosso di Sera, we could fill a book!

Fabulous Home; Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 7 (3 generations) just returned from a wonderful week renting this villa. We have rented many homes throughout the Caribbean and this one is now our hands-down favorite for many reasons. As the website and pictures show, the house has a terrific layout, beautiful decor and fabulous indoor/outdoor spaces. In addition, the house has a great location -- 3 min walk to the beach, 1 min walk to the tennis courts and a terrific pool area with a hot tub. Finally, the owner was extremely easy to deal with from the first email to our checkout.

Taylor Bay Beach is a jewel -- white sugar sand and crystal clear water. There are two kayaks at the house which were fun to use at the beach. The tennis courts were recently resurfaced and are in excellent condition. We were in and out of the water at the beach, pool and hot tub all day, every day. The pool area is beautiful with tons of seating, a cabana with a full bathroom, pretty landscaping, wi-fi and shady areas throughout the day. We used the gas grill at night to cook dinner while the kids continued to swim.

We used the A/C a few nights but the breezes usually kept the house cool. Because the house is so open (screens on the windows of course), we did have some mosquito issues and occasionally heard some noisy children in nearby rental homes. Mosquitoes are part of the beach environment and the neighbors probably heard our children too, so these are minor complaints compared to the excellent overall experience we had. We will be back and we highly recommend this home to anyone considering a rental in the Taylor Bay area!
