Overview

Providenciales - Provo House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 4-6

Villa Poinciana is a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1300 square foot house with covered decks wrapping around both buildings. The surrounding foliage engulfs the wooden structures.

Located in the quiet southwest corner of Providenciales near Sapodilla Bay, this charming villa is situated on the water's edge of scenic Chalk Sound National Park, a Turks and Caicos Island wildlife sanctuary.

Villa Poinciana is two separate but connected West Indies style wooden structures nestled comfortably into the natural flora and rock formations of the Chalk Sound shoreline. Poinciana comes with two kayaks for your enjoyment exploring the islands in Chalk Sound.

One building contains the living room, kitchen, dining room and a full bath; and the other, two large bedrooms both with en-suite baths creating a tree-house atmosphere that is enhanced by the connecting wooden walkways and surrounding tropical plants. The many decks and connecting walkways offer sweeping views of a brilliant turquoise blue water you will remember forever.

Poinciana can comfortably accommodate a party of 4. Additionally, there is a sleeper sofa in the living room appropriate for an extra child or adult. Despite Poinciana's Swiss Family Robinson appearance, it has the modern conveniences of flat screen TVs, wireless internet, and bluetooth audio speakers for your enjoyment.

About Colin

From Vineyard Style Magazine:

Colin Whyte, President of Martha's Vineyard Construction, left his happy childhood home near Biscayne Bay, FL to start a wonderful and varied journey that would one day lead him to sailboat summers, Martha’s Vineyard mansions and a company built from fortitude and perseverance. “I had enough support and stability at home that I could just go. I never knew that when I left home at age 16, I’d never be back again.” Choosing to go to an all boys boarding school in Tennessee, McCallie School taught hard lessons of discipline and survival. It was there that Colin made life-long friends and began to desire the mysteries that life and experience had to offer.

In hope of avoiding a sojourn in Vietnam Colin took off on his motorcycle, partnered with friends, and threw himself into education and small-time enterprises. Self-taught, he learned how to run a successful business from varied jaunts including: house moving, dictionary selling, surfboard renting, interning in the Senate, and—finally, construction clean up. Graduating from Brown University with a liberal arts degree led him to a winter at Law School, and a stint back at Brown Graduate School in art. “Applying to schools, I was really just a kid trying to stay out of Vietnam; little did I know, it was the motorcycle that would save me. A serious accident taught me the power of the motorcycle. My back was handed a lesson and Martha’s Vineyard became my home.”

Colin purchased this house in 1986

Blown Away!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was heaven on earth. It exceeded our expectations and then some!

It is perfectly situated next to the most amazing blue water we have ever seen. Separating the sleeping villa from the main house was a stroke of genius!

We woke up each morning looking out over Chalk Sound. After relaxing over coffee we set out for Taylor Bay (a short walk). Taylor bay is the best beach we have ever been to.

If you are into cooking, this is the place! Lots of counter space and all kitchen equipment you need. We loved the fully equipped kitchen and grill. If you prefer dining out, your options are fantastic! We ate at Coco Bistro, Da Conch Shack, Las Brisas and also at a few Grace Bay resorts.

This was by far the most relaxing vacation with the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. Can't wait to return!!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted at the airport by the most delightful and charming Denise. She piled our luggage in her pick up truck, and we followed her to get our rental car. She then lead us on the short trip to the house and oriented us to the property. We were blown away by the gorgeous turquoise water which would be our back yard for the next week. The place was immaculate, and well-stocked with all of the essentials. Denise answered all of our questions as to where to obtain groceries, etc... We were within a short walk to Sapodilla Bay Beach, and the ultimate beach, Taylor Bay Beach. I doubt I will ever find a more beautiful beach, and the fact that it was not crowded was an unexpected bonus! We had a fabulous low-key week, which was just what we needed The shops and restaurants were in the Grace Bay area, which was about 15-20 minute ride away by car, although the Las Brisas Restaurant was just down the street, and very nice for drinks and/or dinner. We hope to return to Poinciana next year to escape the New England winter once again!

Fabulous Stay on Chalk Sound!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Poinciana was just perfect for our family of 4 (with 2 teenage boys). magnificent setting on Chalk Sound with great kayaking available right from the house. We kayaked several times to a fantastic restaurant Las Brisas. Very comfortable villa with separate sleeping quarters- every room has stunning views. Two beautiful beaches are within walking distance. Many thanks to Colin for making it so easy to rent and to Denise for meeting us at the airport and giving us wonderful tips on what to see on the island!

One Word: Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our two young children and a friend of ours stayed at this treehouse paradise for two weeks. Immediately upon entering the property the view took our breath away. The water was the most unbelievable shade of blue we had ever seen! The property itself was simple and cozy with amazing open air breezes wafting through all day and all night. The home was deliciously private and cozy, so much so that we really had no desire to leave! Every morning the entire family did our yoga practice on the front deck of the main house as the sun rose followed by breakfast and a dip in the warm turquoise water. The consistency of the sand was a bit squishy, and the kids had no problem swimming from sun up to sun down. The adults also loved the water, but preferred to wear our water shoes. There are two top notch kayaks that we used quite a bit to visit the small islands in Chalk Sound where we loved to observe the rear rock iguanas and the beautiful birds nesting in the foliage. The house had everything that we might need to feel at home, which was important since we did a lot of cooking and loafing around. There was one minor glitch when the DVD player did not work, but the house manager Denise resolved that issue right away. Speaking about Denise, she was amazing! She really went out of her way to make sure our stay was pleasant from the moment we arrived until the day we left. Colin was also just an email away if there were any questions or concerns.

Of course we did venture out and did quite a bit of snorkeling on Grace Bay as well visited the conch plant and took a semi submarine tour, which we highly suggest. We also had some delicious conch fritters and snapper at Horse-Eyed Jack's restaurant off Millenium Highway and Flamingo Cafe next to Club Med as well as the most amazing jerk chicken and pork at Chinson's Bar and Grill right off Leeward Highway. We celebrated our son's 9th birthday there and the owners treated us like family, even bringing out a slice of cake for our son on the house!

Needless to say, we made so many fine memories at Poinciana that we will never forget!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Villa Poinciana was a wonderful retreat for a much needed vacation. The villa was very clean, and had all the creature comforts for a vacation home that far exceeded a hotel stay. The pics do this home no justice. The house was simple, comfortable, safe, felt private, walking distance to two gorgeous beaches (as well as its own small private beach), 10 min to most entertainment/restaurants by car, and the owner was extremely helpful with our planning before we arrived. The openness of the tree house style and privacy felt unnerving the first night, but by night two, the only worry we had was how wide to leave the patio door open at night to catch the awesome trade wind breeze. The only occurrence we would mention is that neighboring dogs barking could sometimes be bothersome during the night (particularly if you are a light sleeper). Other than that, for the laid back easy going vacationer, you will not be disappointed.

Side note: Chalk Sound itself is one of the most beautiful and unique views to experience. However, while it has crystal clear water to the bottom and is shallow for yards, the feeling of the bottom is more like the consistency of a lake rather than sand. If you have to have the feel of sand under your feet, you will probably prefer the two beaches only a few minutes walk away.

Owner's Response: It is so wonderful when a guest connects with the Poinciana experience. I hope all who visit will want to return often.
