Providenciales - Provo House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms, 4 full baths

Etoile de Mer is surrounded by palm trees on .75 acre of land that adjoins Taylor Bay. Custom designed to catch the breezes which gently waif through the house, Etoile de Mer feels like a lovely home, not a rental.  Divide your time between the beach and the large, salt water pool, gazebo and pool deck. The gentle tides of Taylor Bay offer an opportunity to wade, swim, snorkel, or kayak.  The fine white sands bid you to take a long walk or sit and watch the sunset.  Etoile de Mer has three floors:  the ground floor is an apartment with its own exterior entrance as well as an interior staircase.  The main floor, on the level of the pool and deck, has a spacious living room and dining room, a large, open kitchen, screened porch, two bedrooms and two full baths and a wrap-around veranda.  The upper level is the master suite with a balcony, sunken bathtub, bathroom and large shower.

People enjoy Etoile so much, renters return year after year.

Adults love to walk through the water or float on a raft from one side of the bay to the other, carried by the gentle tides of the bay. Others like to take any number of the four kayaks provided at the house and explore beyond Taylor Bay into the Caribbean. Complimentary private tennis courts, resurfaced in 2012, are just steps away.

Providenciales boasts world-class scuba diving, including spectacular wall dives. In the evening, dine on the veranda and watch the sun set over the Caribbean or enjoy international gourmet dining just minutes away. After dinner, stroll the beach, watch cable television (all major U.S. networks), listen to music, watch a DVD, look at the stars, or simply enjoy the sound of peace.

The main house (one and a half stories)sleeps 6; the apartment sleeps 2-4 as there is a fold-out queen couch. The Master Suite and the apartment have air conditioning. The rest of the house is fully ventilated through jalousy doors and windows and ceiling fans.

Gas grill, 4 rafts, beach chairs, 2 kitchens, cribs.

We bought Etoile de Mer on our first trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands. We had never even considered buying a house in the Caribbean and before the trip had not even heard of Turks and Caicos! That's what the island can do to you!

Dave is a commercial architect and has used his expertise to upgrade every part of the house - from oiled bronze hardware to Italian porcelain to new stucco.

Margaret is a retired business woman and manages the entire operation of the house, in partnership with an on-island property manager.

Margaret purchased this house in 2004

There are a lot of white marble palaces on Providenciales, many of which were built exclusively for the rental market.

Etoile de Mer is a home, not a business. It is lovingly cared for and appreciated by our entire family and recognized across the island as the most authentic Caribbean-style home on Providenciales. Etoile combines old-world Caribbean charm with completely modern upgrades.

And the location couldn't be more perfect - 50 ft. from private tennis courts, 100 ft. from the most gorgeous beach on island, 20 ft. tall coconut palms, over 100 flowering plants, and green space on 3 sides. Paradise.

We feel very blessed to have found Etoile de Mer and to be able to share it with renters.

Sunset Bay, the residential community at Taylor Bay, is composed of 27 large (3/4 acre) lots; only 12 are built on which gives the area a lot of green space and the villas privacy.

Though all beaches in the Caribbean are public, there is not direct public access to Taylor Bay. If you stay in a Sunset Bay villa, the beach is right there for you.

Imagine an early-morning walk on Taylor Bay and being the only one on the beach.

So great to be in a well-designed house that works beautifully with the trade winds. No need for AC - hooray! We love your poolside gazebo. It's great for an afternoon snooze. And the kayaks! What a lovely home, location, feel. We had a great time.

We got back and I have been working so hard sometimes I wonder if vacation is worth it, but this vacation definitely was worth it. We loved your home (let us know if you ever decide to sell). We had some friends from Provo over and they loved it also. We loved the architecture. We loved the bathroom counter tops! The apartment was really neat, the gazebo was wonderful, the pool a delight. We had stayed at Chalk Sound and had been to Sapodilla Beach but Taylor Bay was wonderful! We had lobster four times and my husband enjoyed your grill so much I fear we will need to get one soon. We got conch from the Turtle Tail area (about 4 feet of water), tipped the shells, harvested them and took them to Etoile and made conch salad and fritters. We, of course, observed the limitation. You are very fortunate to have Etoile and we are very lucky that it was available for our two week vacation. I really love Provo in the summer. Florida is hot and very humid. Provo is hot but hardly any humidity and the constant trade winds…just paradise.

We had a wonderful time in Provo and very much enjoyed our stay at Etoile de Mer. The house is as beautiful as advertised and the pool was fantastic. Taylor Bay felt like our own private beach. The scuba diving in Turks and Caicos was incredible. I dove with Flamingo Divers and I would highly recommend them for any of your future guests. They were simply the best dive operation I have dived with anywhere in the world. Their service was fantastic. You have a beautiful and charming home in Provo, and we enjoyed our stay there very much. We would recommend it to our friends.

We enjoyed our vacation very much. Provo was like no other place I have ever been —life is very simple and relaxed. The bay was nothing short of remarkable. I think it might be the prettiest place on earth. You are very lucky to own a place so close. Your pool was wonderful and a big hit with our grandson. All in all, our trip couldn’t have been much better. We left a message in your book and really want to thank you for everything!

We had a great time at Etoile de Mer. The house was both beautiful and comfortable and exceeded our expectations. Our friends who live on Provo said they had never seen such a nice home on the island and these are friends who work on a lot of the high-end estates! We enjoyed waking up every morning and sitting in the sun room drinking our coffee. We would then play tennis or float in Sunset Bay. We often walked through the neighborhood. Sunset Bay is one of the features that we loved the most. The beautiful sunsets were a perfect way to end each perfect day. We went to T&C to relax but we have never come back from a vacation so rejuvenated. We were all so relaxed that even the New York traffic didn’t affect us! We will definitely be back to Etoile de Mer and Sunset Bay.

Thank you for one of the most enjoyable, relaxing and beautiful vacations my family and I have ever had. We were fortunate enough to spend one full week at Etoile but wish we could have stayed longer. Etoile de Mer is perfect for anyone looking for privacy, serenity, peace, low key elegance and beauty found in nature along with the amenities of a fully stocked, comfortable home right on the beach with pool and tennis. Waking up each morning to the different views of the melting of the blues skies into the turquoise water on the bay or catching the changing sunsets each evening from the deck off of the master bedroom made all the work in planning this vacation worthwhile. Etoile de Mer is huge and so comfortable. It was more than large enough for privacy yet it was always cozy enough for meals and great conversation. We spent hours in the bay, swimming and checking out the different kind of fish nearby. Reading or napping next to the pool under the comfortable shaded gazebo defined a relaxing vacation. We will be back!
