Overview

Providenciales - Provo Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed 2 bath home with large loft/extra bed area. 1,400 sq ft.

New to the Turks and Caicos rental market and nestled amid the rich, natural, flora of the secluded private residential neighborhood of Grace Bay Gardens in the heart of Grace Bay, Taino Cottage is a 1,400 sq ft family-friendly, beautifully furnished and spacious 2 bedroom villa rental.

Taino meaning 'peaceful' was the name given to the indigenous peoples who first inhabited the Turks and Caicos and this villa certainly lives up to it's name.

The villa is well situated in the heart of the Grace Bay area within walking distance of World Famous Grace Bay Beach, with quick and easy access to many fine restaurants and bars, shopping and golf course. The Kite boarders haven Long Bay Beach is also very close.

The villa has a master bedroom with ensuite bath, a guest bedroom with two twin beds and a loft with pull out futon making it comfortable for up to six persons. There is a full size pool table in the games loft and many available board games for the kids.

Filled with beautiful paintings created by the owner the house also has available TV, DVD/CD player, a cell phone (PAYG), and high speed internet. A washing machine and charcoal BBQ.

There are a couple of Bicycles available for getting around the area and beach chairs for lazing on the soft white sand of Grace Bay.

Convenient Location, good price

  • 3 of 5
We stayed here around the first week of September, for about 5 nights or so. Overall, Kathleen was great in communication, to provide directions to the home, which would have been difficult, given the difference in rules (e.g. how to get in a rotary, driving on the left side, etc.). The home is situated in a residential neighborhood and surrounded by trees, with a nice sized yard out back. The location is conveniently located, and short drive to beaches and grocery stores. Also the home is a nice sized home.

When we got there, we noticed that the cleaning wasn't done well enough though. We wiped the dining room table since it was a little sticky, and spend a large amount of paper towel, but were not able to get all the 'dirt' out. The kitchen floors, and bathroom area had dead ants around the floor boards, etc. in certain areas. The upstairs loft area was also not cleaned properly, as it was dusty all around, so we didn't actually make use of the pool table. Also we noticed that the kitchen sink at the time was not draining properly, and it was difficult making dinner or washing. The trash outback was also full from the last guest(?) when we went to deposit our trash there. Most of what I had mentioned, we minor things, that I wouldn't usually be to concerned with, but mom was a little concerned, since the baby was there.

Overall, the place was OK for the price, and large enough for 4 people or so, high ceilings were great, and plenty of ceiling fans also. Convenient location, good price. My only recommendation would be to make sure that the cleaning person does a thorough job cleaning, and also make sure some some things are functional (e.g. no drainage problems), etc. Other than that, we had a blast though, loved the short drive to the public beaches... which is the entire point of the trip.

Thanks,
Tony

All the Perks at the Turks!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Taino cottage for approximately 9 days from June 25 to July 4, 2014. This trip was a working vacation as we were celebrating a birthday, but also wanted to see if we can work remotely from the Turks as we both work remotely from home. The cottage is located in a residential neighborhood off the main road, but taxi drivers probably won't know where it is. Simon's instructions were vital and accurate, so have it with you, particularly if traveling at night. In the morning, we were able to get a sense of where we were. It was my first time at the Turks, but Wayne has visited often and was easily able to navigate to the supermarket, restaurants and beach just a short ten minutes walk away. The location is ideal for serenity and convenience. Simon supplied us with some food for breakfast, which was much appreciated and we easily picked up anything else we wanted from the nearby IGA supermarket.
The cottage itself is beautiful, just as it appears in the photos. What you don't see in the photos is that the house is well planned and stocked with everything you can think of, with dishes and kitchen appliances, but also outlets just where you would think it would be great to have one and hooks just when you think I need one right here. The house also is equipped with everything your house would have, cleaning supplies, washing machine, tools (if you need it), buckets, linens, hats, gear, you name it, it's probably in there. There is also a community pool just across the road from the back door. There are switches that control lights, fans and shutters, so enjoy discovering which switch does what. Simon has thought of everything and has documented it all, so read his welcome note. Chances are if you are wondering about something, it is mentioned in his note.
The entire stay was so tranquil, yet so productive as I was able to work via the internet during the day. We were there during the World Cup, so that's pretty much all we've seen, however there is TV if you decide to stay in.
Overall, Simon was a very helpful host. The house is perfectly situated and stocked with just about anything you need, and if there is something you need that isn't there, not that I can think of what that might be, I'm sure Simon would happily assist in arranging it. We look forward to our next visit to Turks and stay at the Taino cottage!
