Providenciales - Provo Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Relax and enjoy Harbour House at Sapodilla Bay! Recently described as one of the top 10 secluded beaches IN THE WORLD, Sapodilla Beach is truly the perfect spot for Honeymooners, Families with children or anyone looking to kick back in the incredible turquoise shallows and white sand.

Harbour House is an elevated beach-style house designed for comfort and easy socializing among the palm trees. You will find plenty of places to spread out at Harbour House whether in the sun on the front deck, the shade and cool breezes on the back deck, under the new Gazebo poolside or soaking up the sun on our pool loungers. During the summer of 2013 we completed the construction of a 16' x 24' pool, gazebo and patio area on the sunny side of Harbour House to take advantage of the beautiful afternoon sun. Enjoy a morning swim in the pool before heading to the beach or hang out there all day. The patio is surrounded by lush landscaping complete with bougainvillea and palm trees and our very own lime tree offering the Caribbean ambiance you're looking for. At night be sure to turn on the pool lights and enjoy the lightshow! Another nice feature is a propane pool heater which keeps the temperature of the pool at a beautiful 85 degrees year round – perfect for those evening swims when the air temperature is in the mid 70s during the winter months.

Harbour House has been upgraded throughout yet retains the cool island feel of a beach house. The french doors front and back open wide to let the breezes through, and the decks offer spacious outdoor living areas off the living & dining rooms, surrounded by trees and indigenous vegetation. The front and rear doors and windows are louvered aluminum which allow the windows to stay open day or night securely while the beautiful cooling trade-wind breezes pass through the house.

Inside, the kitchen is where most of the socializing happens and features a beautiful granite bar area, Sapelli Mahogany cabinets and onyx pendant lights giving this space a cozy nightclub feel as you sit on the bar stools and relive your island adventures each evening. The dining table expands to comfortably seat up to 10 people in the dining room or you can choose to dine outside on the back deck under the palm tree and blossoming Mahoe trees. You will usually share your breakfast with the resident Bahama Woodstar Hummingbirds in the morning!

The warm coral colored main bedroom features a king size bed and, for comfort, a ceiling fan as well as air conditioning if needed. The sliding door opens to the front deck allowing the balmy east breezes to fill the room. The bathroom offers his and hers sinks and a spacious travertine marble tile and glass shower.

The second bedroom also offers a king size bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan and another sliding door out to the front deck. The walls in this room are a soft lavender color, the perfect place for an afternoon nap when you return from the beach.

The open living room area is welcoming with traditional exposed beam vaulted ceilings, a ceiling fan and comfortable, contemporary furniture - an inviting area for all to congregate. The sectional couch has a queen size pull out bed that is very comfortable and easily made up with the half bath near-by. For inside entertainment there is a 42”' HDTV, DVD player and a bluetooth soundbar and wireless internet.

And then there is Sapodilla Bay less than a 2 minute walk to the prettiest beach on Providenciales. Spend the day building sand castles, wading through the water, floating, snorkeling, watching for turtles and just taking in the magnificent turquoise view. Don't be afraid to drag your beach chairs into the water and watch the sun slowly sink into the water to the west while you plan tomorrow's adventure - or not... this is paradise! The southwest side of Providenciales is a totally different experience compared to the Grace Bay hustle and bustle and larger surf of the north side. Even though it is the “other side” of the island you are still only a 15 minute drive from most everything Provo has to offer from horse back riding, paddleboarding, snorkeling, scuba or fishing excursions. You will find all sorts of dining experiences on Provo within minutes from Harbour House or simply walk down our back path right across the street to Las Brisas restaurant and come 'home' for an after dinner drink by the pool under the stars.

You will love it here.

If your dates are already taken, please visit one of our other properties, Mizo Villa at #649802 on VRBO as an alternative.

About Patrick Staples

When we married while vacationing in Antigua, my wife and I started to dream of how we were going to one day live in the Caribbean. After that first warm trip together we traveled to Maui, Dominican Republic, BVI, St. Lucia, Barbados, Mexico and a few other warm destinations until we found Providenciales. We were immediately stricken with the innumerable colors of the water and practically deserted beaches and knew that this was it.

After two weeks of playing in 85 degree ocean water, we went home, listed the house, sold the cars and most of our furniture and moved to 'Provo' 3 months later - just to try it out for a few months. That was over a decade ago and we have not regretted our decision.

As simple as it sounds, I enjoy getting up in the morning and not having to decide how many layers of clothes I will need to walk the dog! I don't own 4 seasons of clothes like I did at home and I can BBQ any darned day of the week. I traded my skis for sailing which I can also do any day of the week!

Above all else though, we have grown in so many directions due to the friends we have made and the many, many people we have met from all corners of the earth. We cherish our local island friends and the fact that they have welcomed us to live here and make our new lives in their country. We encourage you as visitors to say Hello to a Turks islander at every opportunity and enjoy the friendly smile and humor that will undoubtedly follow. Enjoy your time in our island home - we are delighted to share the experience with you.

Patrick Staples purchased this bungalow in 2007

Why Patrick Staples chose Providenciales - Provo

It's really all about being able to walk to the beach in less than 2 minutes and straight into the water - no hills to climb or treacherous hikes across rocks to get to the beach. Or to gaze out at how the sun lights up the shallows into 'electric turquoise'. Or to look up at the plane passing overhead and realize that the turquoise undercarriage is actually the water reflecting up on a white undercarriage!

Provo is blessed with many miles of sandy beaches but Sapodilla Beach is a special stretch with its own character and amenities. Don't forget that the sun sets over the water most of the year on this side of the island and you will see the 'green flash'. If you've never heard of or seen the green flash it is your job to now find out more.

What makes this bungalow unique

Harbour Gates is a closed community with one access into the neighbourhood which results in hardly any traffic. This makes the short walk to your beach access safe and unimpeded where your beach chairs are waiting for you. Sapodilla Beach on Sapodilla Bay is a public beach with 7 private homes built on it. This means that the beach is never crowded and there are no resorts nearby. Sapodilla Bay is a safe harbour for passing sailboats making their way down through the islands or back home again. Keep your eyes open for the resident turtles that surface just beyond the shallows or the occasional stingray or dolphins. The wind is predominantly from the east so west facing Sapodilla Bay is mostly flat and docile - perfect for kayaking or stand up paddle boarding.

Although we are not on the beach, the open concept and vaulted ceilings of our house make this feel like a true beach house. Our bungalow is elevated 6 feet off the ground with decks front and back. The foundation incorporates a 25,000 gallon cistern replenished by capturing rain water from the roof. We rarely require A/C due to the constant breezes and laundry can be dried on the shaded clothes lines under the house. We try to be as 'green' as we can and the island is better for it.

The addition of the pool, patio and gazebo in 2013 offers our guests their choice of playing at the beach or playing in the pool or both! We have creating a courtyard atmosphere poolside where you can soak in the sun or hang out in the shade of the gazebo or palm trees. The pool means you will never be too far away from the ice and the blender for another slushy drink!

We hope you enjoy your stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner

To all who seek a passage which takes you to another State of Mind, in a setting which allows your body, soul and mental being to relax, decompress in the comforts of a home away from home feeling, then look no further than Harbour House.



Pat was (an) incredible host and his house was amazing. The beach is second to none. The hospitality of the locals is very inviting.



Thanks for the memories!

Harbour House - Absolutely perfect home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent an absolutely fantastic week in February at the Harbour House on Sapodilla Bay. From the moment that Patrick met us at the airport to assisting us with the car rental and helping to navigate the island, we knew this was going to be a special vacation. The house is perfect, with all the amenities you will need to enjoy your stay. The heated pool, the pool side lounge chairs, and the covered arbor area made the outdoors the place to be. A short walk to the beach and there were lounge chairs, a paddle board and a double kayak to enjoy. We didn’t need anything else. Patrick recommended we go to the Provo Fish Market which we did and we were able to purchase lobsters right from the boat. Definitely a home we will want to rent again.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a great vacation here Bud! It is always so nice to meet folks like you who appreciate our property and Sapodilla Bay but also get out to see the rest of the island. Glad you found the lobster market too as there is nothing better than doing your own lobster tails on the BBQ! Truly hope to see you both again. Pat

Brilliant House, great in every aspect

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at this House was just great, it's amazing, everything about it spells out proffesionalism, the amenities, the furnishings, having six different outside seating areas, a deck to die for, quality of outdoor furnitures, cleanliness throughout inside and outside. At the beach there is sun beds, kayaks, all for your sole use, and the beach being 2 minutes walk. It's very secure. There is nothing that I could complain about.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Patrick was the perfect host and it is clear that he has a great love of his property based upon his attention to detail. The house is perfectly private but located in a very safe and secure neighborhood just a short stroll to the gorgeous beach of Sapodilla Bay. Our college-aged daughter brought a friend and they were very content to spend mornings around the beautiful pool at the house and afternoons at the beach. We all made great use of the double kayak which is handy right at the beach. We had fun cooking lobster tails on the grill and also enjoyed a couple of nice dinners out. The weather was perfect, sunny with a constant nice breeze. We never even bothered to go over to Grace Bay. Our stay was very relaxing and fun. Thanks for a great time!

Owner's Response: Hi Anne, It sounds like the 4 of you were perfectly content to stay around the Sapodilla Bay area and Harbour House for the whole week - I am so happy to hear that! It was great getting to know you both a bit when I dropped by and you just seemed to be right at home which always makes me happy. Please come back and see us again some day! Pat

Honest review

  • 4 of 5

As someone who has rented several villas in Turks & Caicos as well as other places I want to write a review that is as informative as possible. Overall we had a great time and would keep this villa on our short list if we were renting again in this area. The price was competitive and fair.

Pros - Very nice house with a great pool and outside space. The house has all of the necessary equipment to make great meals in the kitchen or outside on the grill. A short walk (around 250 steps) to Sapodilla Bay. A very short walk to the only restaurant in the immediate area, Las Brisas (many others on the island that you can drive to). The kids loved the SUP board at the beach and there are plenty of beach chairs to use at the beach as well.

Cons - The neighborhood is located next to the docks so we could hear activity at night from our bedroom. Granted, this was Christmas week so I think there was a lot more activity than normal as they were unloading extra goods for the Christmas week. Also, most times of the year you would have the windows closed and the AC on at night so it wouldn't be an issue. There was only one television, none in the bedrooms (my wife would say this is a Pro but I like to fall asleep to the TV).

We were a family of 4 and it was the perfect size for us as our daughters shared a bedroom. If there were more than 4 it would be a bit tight, especially if kids weren't sharing beds.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Mike. I am glad you and your family had a good time. Sorry to know that you were disturbed by the ships at South Dock. I think you are right that being Christmas there was more activity than normal and you are right that closing the windows and having the A/C on for a night or two would solve the issue. Thanks for keeping Harbour House on your short list as we would love to have you back any time! Pat

New Years 2015

  • of 5

We just returned from our Turks and Caicos vacation at Patrick's house and I can give this a stellar review! Pat met us at the airport and even helped out when the car rental agency couldn't locate our reservation. Pat goes well beyond the normal expectations of an owner and we were very happy with everything. His home is beautiful and extremely comfortable. The beach is very close and he provides the beach chairs as well as a kayak to use! Another plus is the location - being away from the hotel strip allowed for relaxing beach days on Sapodilla Bay instead of crowded beaches which we saw at Grace Bay. Our family gives this rental an A++. You won't be disappointed!

Notes:
I have made it a point to greet all of our guests at the airport personally. You will see me holding a sign for Harbour House when you walk through the exit doors. I feel this is important as we have arrived at airports and been in the middle of the mayhem looking for a cab or the rental car company. My goal is to make your arrival as simple as possible, help you load everything into your rental car and have you follow me to Harbour House. Yes, it is only a 10 minute drive to Sapodilla Bay but it makes things much easier navigating on the left side of the road and through the islands 'interesting' traffic circles. Once we get to Harbour House I like to spend some time showing you through the house and, of course, guiding you down to the beach access. I will also take some time to give you directions to grocery stores etc. to get you ready to stock up.
