Overview

Providenciales - Provo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 BR Seafront Apt with Loft, Pool, Spectacular Views, Swimming & Snorkeling

VILLA KENDARA

THE APARTMENT - Viva la Providenciales from our well appointed second story, 1 Bed Room Apartment with private entrance on a point overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Long Bay Beach (a Kite Boarder's Paradise) and Iron Shore! Enjoy breathtaking views of sunrise and sunset surrounded by water and island decor. Amenities include Cozy Living Area; Gourmet Kitchen with all stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, microwave, range with oven, full size refrigerator/freezer/ice maker) and washer/dryer, toaster, food processor, coffee maker; Bedroom with queen size bed; Loft with twin size bed; Ensuite Bathroom with bubble glass shower and extra large mirror closet to hold your luggage and its contents; Furnished Balcony with BBQ overlooking the sea; Pool 20 ft long by 4-1/2 ft deep, suitable for short laps ; Air-conditioning; TV, Internet and local Phone.

THE SURROUNDINGS - Swim the coves, snorkel the reefs, fish the shallows, kite board or partake in boating and a variety of water sports activities. The pool is just steps away from the Apartment in the corner of the property overlooking the Caribbean and Long Bay; the water's edge is just steps away from the pool down a short natural path.

THE CONVENIENCE - Want to experience what's beyond our location? An easy few minute drive brings you to Grace Bay, Blue Haven Marina, other beaches, restaurants, shops, Provo Golf Club, Casablanca Casino and rendezvous points for activities on land and sea. For more adventure, travel to North, Middle or South Caicos on the nearby TCI Ferry.

THE BEST CHOICE - The private natural setting of our property gives true meaning to the 'Beautiful by Nature' theme of the Turks and Caicos Islands, and our location is ideal for everything you might want to do while on vacation.

BEYOND VILLA KENDARA

THE MYTH - You want to visit Providenciales because it's consistently rated a top destination to vacation with some of the best beaches in the world. If you're thinking that the only thing to do is sit on the beach and take in the sun, then you're in for a very big surprise. Of course you may go to a different beach every day, each one unique and more beautiful than the next; however, you may also chose from a wide variety of activities on land, sea and in the air.

WATER SPORTS - Imagine paddle boarding through the mangroves; kite boarding on Long Bay where the conditions are near perfect year round; kayaking small inlets and around tiny cays; diving off the coral reefs and walls; snorkeling off beaches or in front of our property. Fishermen take note that the shallows off Providenciales are teeming with bonefish, and beyond the reef is great for deep sea fishing. Those interested in renting small motor boats and sailboats can chart their own course.

ECO-TOURISM - Big Blue Unlimited is the premier company for water sports and eco-tourism adventure in the islands. We recommend them for exploring the coral reefs, excursions to outer islands and discovering the history and culture of the region. The waters are crystal clear and the marine life is outstanding. Whether kayaking or paddle boarding in the shallows off the Leeward Going Through Channel, kiteboarding on Long Bay, snorkeling or diving the barrier reef, diving the drop-off walls, bicycling in North Caicos, exploring the caves of Middle Caicos or visiting the National Trust's iguana sanctuary, Little Water Cay, the multi-talented and knowledgeable staff of Big Blue Unlimited will provide memories to last a life time. Visit their website for more details.

WATER TOURS - If water sports are not your cup of tea, sit back, relax and put yourself in the capable hands of a tour boat captain who will take you to secluded beaches and places of interest.

ON LAND - Not into water sports or touring by boat, land lovers may enjoy horseback riding on Long Bay, working out or playing tennis at the well-equipped fitness center, golfing at the championship Provo Golf Club or gaming at the Casablanca Casino. Not into any of the above, then walk on the beach, bike on the secondary roads or rent a motor scooter. There's even a cinema for the unusual rainy day.

FROM THE AIR - Maybe you'd rather see Provo from above; then a helicopter ride is for you. It's from the air that you really come to appreciate the color of the water, the patterns of the reefs, the number of cays and overall beauty of the Caicos Island chain. Those wanting a closer, more hands on view can try parasailing.

DINING OUT - Provo is a treasure trove of eating experiences. Ranging from reasonable to expensive, there are restaurants for every palate including American, Caribbean, French, Fusion, Indian, Italian, Mediterranean, Jamaican, Japanese, Mexican, Tex-Mex and Thai. Dress is always casual. Reservations are required at some of the more popular restaurants. A few of them close during September to mid-October, but the list is dwindling as Provo is now a year round destination. Many restaurants are 1 to 3 miles from Villa Kendara in the tourist hub; a few are in Turtle Cove; others are off the major highways. Most restaurants have indoor/outdoor seating and stunning settings. Watch the sunset overlooking Grace Bay; marvel at the color of the water and the tiny picturesque islands of Chalk Sound; mingle with the locals at our list of 'Good Value Restaurants' in the 'Johnson Guide to Provo'; watch boats in the Marinas; sit under the stars amidst a canopy of palm trees; admire the tropical foliage in uniquely landscaped gardens; pause for a bite at a beachfront café that is an extension of the beach itself. There are many combinations of cuisine and setting.

FOOD SPECIALITIES - Wherever you dine, be sure to sample the local seafood such as conch, grouper, langouste, snapper and wahoo. Provo is best known for conch that live in pink pearl shells and inhabit the shallow areas of Long Bay and Grace Bay or are raised in open water beds at the Conch Farm in the Leeward Going Through Channel. Try fritters, lightly breaded and fried to perfection; fingers or cracked pieces with just the right amount of crunch; saviche with its tangy flavor; the sauté with herbs over a fresh garden salad; chowder that varies from bisque to chunky with vegetables; a burger savory with spices. During the annual Conch Festival, restaurants compete for the best recipe in each category as well as new ideas for preparing. Da Conch Shack, with its panarama view of Grace Bay, is the best known restaurant for sampling this delicacy, but we suggest ordering it as an appetizer or main course at any of the restaurants in the 'Johnson Guide to Provo'.

WHY RENT A VEHICLE - To explore the 37.5 square miles and appreciate what Provo has to offer, you should rent a vehicle. Keep in mind that taxis and excursions that provide transportation are expensive so a car pays for itself in no time. Also car services pick you up at the airport and drop you off there which is most convenient. While most of our guests choose an economy car, those proficient in riding bikes or motor scooters may want to consider the latter. Information on how to go about renting cars, bikes and motor scooters is in our Rental Agreement. Get to know the real Provo by renting a car.

About Carol Johnson

Tom and I are from Weston, CT. Tom grew up in Media, PA and myself in Rensselaer, N.Y. Tom graduated from NC State University in Raleigh with a degree in food science while I obtained a degree in bio-chem from Russell Sage College in Troy, N.Y. We met while developing food products for Pepperidge Farm in Norwalk, CT.

Restless with corporate life, we began our own business in 1983, and Lexington Gardens of Newtown, Inc. soon became a destination for plant lovers who begged for more. We responded by expanding into gourmet food, gifts, boutique clothing, pet supplies and home décor.

We have always been curious about people, places and things. When our children Kendra and Dara were born, we found that renting an apartment in the Caribbean made for an enjoyable vacation and that spending a day or two with a real estate agent was an easy way to get oriented. After exploring many islands, a scuba diving friend told us about Turks and Caicos. On the spur of the moment we made reservations and found ourselves on Providenciales in August 1999. After doing our usual look/see with an agent, we went out on our own. One day we drove to the end of a dirt road, parked and walked up the gentle slope to look at the view. What we saw was breathtaking! Smitten by the Stubbs Cove area on Long Bay, we began the process of buying a piece of paradise, and by May 2000 the land on both sides of the cul de sac overlooking the Caribbean and Long Bay was ours.

Using our flair for landscaping and home décor, we designed the house and guest house from the ground up and painstakingly oversaw the construction from 2005 - 2008. The open contemporary design with Mediterranean accents takes full advantage of the sea breeze and magnificent view. In 2012 we finished off the guest house with the same attention to detail as the house and began renting the second story 'Apartment' as we call it to guests.

Why Carol Johnson chose Providenciales - Provo

Picture standing at the top of a gentle slope about 25ft above sea level with the Caribbean in front as far as you can see, the 3-1/2 mile stretch of Long Bay Beach to your right and North and Middle Caicos to your left. The water is many shades of turquoise and waist high for miles; the breeze is constant and cooling to the delight of kiteboarders further down the beach; the vegetation is low and windswept like perfectly pruned bonsai; the sky is heavenly blue with white billowy clouds on the horizon. Linger awhile and you will see incredible sunrises, spectacular sunsets and 180 degree rainbows.

Imagine yourself in a serene setting with swimming and snorkeling at your door step, yet minutes to town. While the majority of properties on Long Bay are 10 to 15 minutes off Leeward Highway, our property is on the upper end of Long Bay, within walking distance of Leeward Highway. We are also just around the corner from Grace Bay where Leeward Highway that parallels Long Bay meets Governors Road that parallels Grace Bay. That puts us 15 minutes from the airport and 1 to 3 miles from access points to other beaches, activities, restaurants and shopping.

What makes this apartment unique

Unique benefits include the view which many say is simply the best on Provo; the 'Beautiful by Nature' setting which is the mantra of Turks and Caicos; the privacy yet proximity to necessities and everything that makes a vacation enjoyable; the ease of swimming and snorkeling in front of the property.

Unique also is the 'Johnson Guide to Provo'. As visitors from 1999 to 2009, we rented guest houses in various parts of the island. We would arrive to be met by someone in a hurry or find a key with a short note under the mat. We vowed that if we ever became landlords, we would do a better job.

In the 'Guide' you will find instructions on how to operate everything in the Apartment; dining information on owner selected restaurants worthy of your consideration; a list of 'Good Value Restaurants' where the food and service are top notch, but the prices are more reasonable; a multitude of activities to enjoy on land and sea; store locations and the merchandise they sell; directions to the best beach access points around Provo, to the roundabouts and which ones take you to the most scenic areas and to necessities such as ATM, gas, groceries and medical; how to make arrangements for an excursion to North and Middle Caicos and what to do when you get there; an invitation, exclusive for our guests, to spend a day at the Northwest Point Resort.

Unique too is the personal attention afforded our guests. The majority of rental properties are managed by property managers who are in charge of many rentals. We do all of the work ourselves from booking to greeting to maintenance. When we are not in residence, the greeting and maintenaince are handled by our good friend Steve Thomas who also happens to be a technical specialist with Eagle Claw Security that monitors our alarm systems.

We invite you to share in the uniqueness that is Villa Kendara.

A wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 10 days with the Johnsons and loved it. They had every bit of information available to us on where to go and how to get there. We chose a different beach each day, went kayaking, swimming and ate our way across Provos. We also made a trip to North Caicos and Middle Caicos. It was my first time driving on the left side of the road and had no trouble adjusting. It was very easy to get around. Thank you to Tom and Carol for the interesting conversations and helpful tips.

Best vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

First I'd like to thank you for being so well organized. Johnson's guide gave us all the information that we needed as for getting around the island easily to specific places, restaurants, beaches, snorkeling spots, diving spots, entertainment.....everything that you could think of is in that book. But even better; if you need any aditionnal information, the owner's were always there to give us further détails to ensure that we could enjoy our vacation as much as possible.

The location is great, close to everything; airport, beach, grocerie store, liquor store....

The appartment was exactly like the pictures. Sparkling clean, and everything that youy needed to cook.....even a BBQ! The pool was refreshing and relaxing.The ocean view is just spectaculor. But most of all, if you like secluded places....please don't miss North and Middle Caicos.....the highlight of our vacation.

Love the place, the people, and hope to retire here!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two weeks and had an awesome time. The condo was absolutely as advertised and there were no surprises. It is a second story above a normal sized two car garage. It is located remote enough where a car rental is a must but you are five or ten minutes from restaurants and grocery store. As others have said the Johnson guide to Provo was an excellent source for information. Tom and Carol arrived the last few days were were there and were very friendly and helpful as well. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Amazing views and comfortable apt

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo well in advance, as it seemed the perfect place for our family to enjoy Provo, a great value, and it sure did not disappoint at all. Pictures are exactly what the place looks like and the condo has amazing views of the Caribbean Sea.

Carol was super helpful, always answered my questions promptly and had great suggestions. The Guide to Provo that she provides is very complete and it came in handy during our stay.

The condo is well located, few minutes away from Grace Bay, a great grocery store and many restaurants.

We cannot wait to come back! Thank you Carol for your hospitality!

The apartments leaves nothing to be desired - it has everything to make you feel at home. Thanks, Carol!
