Even Better than Advertised!
Our family spent a week at LOVE Villas in the Seahorse Villa (second floor) during Christmas week. It was our first time in Turks & Caicos and Grand Turk. In life, there are things that just seem too good to be true. Reading the description of LOVE Villas, and reading the reviews, it certainly seemed the case. How could this property and these owners be THAT good? Well, we’re here to tell you – believe everything you’ve read.
After an incredible stay, we’ve already booked for next year. These are the reasons we are returning:
1 - Richard and his wife Yohamna are simply great people. They could not have been more accommodating during our stay. Every question was answered promptly, terrific recommendations were offered, and they possess true love for LOVE Villas and making sure that each guest is happy. Richard picks you up from the airport and drops you back off . . . in between you will see Richard taking care of the property on a daily basis. In several ways, Richard went above and beyond to take care of us. An example: when our flight was diverted to the DR, we missed our flight to Grand Turk, and we needed to unexpectedly stay a night in Provo. We contacted Richard while on the tarmac in the DR, and immediately Richard helped us find a hotel room for the night.
2 - Our villa was exceptionally well-equipped and well-maintained. Modern appliances and all of the items you might need and enjoy – satellite TV, Wi-Fi (for those work emergencies!), a balcony overlooking the water with adjustable shading, access to paddle boards, swim shoes (all sizes – even a size 13 for our son!), snorkel gear, bicycles, chairs on the first level, and chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Richard starts out your stay with fresh fruit, milk, and some alcoholic beverages.
3 - LOVE Villas is as directly on the beach as you can possibly get. Ten steps or so from LOVE Villas, and you are in the ocean. The view from the villa is surreal.
4 - Each unit is given access to a four-person electric car, which we used to explore almost every inch of the island. It’s simply an awesome way to see parts of the island not generally accessed by any cruise ships and to get to lunch or dinner.
5 - We loved the “chill” nature of the island – the locals are friendly, as are the dogs (potcakes) and donkeys that inhabit the island. We’ve never felt so relaxed.
We are extremely picky, Type-A people. When we say this place was fantastic, please believe us.
We can't wait to return!
***WOW*** What an awesome review! Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to express how you felt on your vacation. We are so glad you had such a GREAT time and look forward to you visit next year.

The best ever!
I traveled the Caribbean our whole lives and always had a issue or experience with property owner. NOT HERE! Absolutely the best experience we ever had over 30 years. Immediately after staying 10 days we automatically booked for the following years to come. We have never done this before, always checking other prices before making a decision. Decision was simple to rebook immediately. The place is second to none with amenities, upscale features, location, and a daily follow up and care from owner. These following features are not available anywhere else. FREE ELECTRIC, ELECTRONIC CAR FOR ISLAND TRAVELING, SNORKEL GEAR, WATER SHOES, LARGE PADDLE BOARDS, WASHER/DRYER, KITCKEN FULLY EQUIPPED, CEILING FANS IN EVERY ROOM, This place is better than my home! I never write a review for any trip, the owner deserves this. THEY CARE! I really can tell you all so much more benefits. please call me at 484-949-0708. Regis... The views and oceanfront is second to none!
Thank You so much for your Fabulous and very thoughtful Review! We are sure that many of our future guest will benefit from your review. Thank you for taking such great care of your home away from home. We look forward to your next visit!

Wow! Such a Beautiful Place!!
My husband, brother and sister-in-law booked this place back in May for our November Anniversary Celebration trip - and we are sure glad we did! Everything was magnificent - from the original booking, the communication with the owner, being picked up at the airport, the personalized tour of the island with suggestions for things to do and taking us back to the airport! The condo was beautiful with very high end furnishings and they left nothing to be desired. One of the best perks was the GEM electric car that comes with the rental! Super thoughtful and very practical for getting around on the island. The owners are wonderful people as well! We loved being right on the beach and very close to some pretty great snorkeling. It was a fabulous trip - so take my advice and book your stay today! Oh! And did I mention that beautiful turquoise water?!?!
Thank You becky for your fabulous review! We really enjoyed having you as our guest and hope to have you and your family back to LOVE Villas Grand Turk very soon!

This property is perfection on every level. The finishes, appliances, furniture, linens, GEM car, paddle boards and all else in the unit are high end. They have thought of everything. I travel for work 2/3 of the year and am always leery when choosing a place to stay for vacation-Grand Turk and Love Villas are beyond what I could ever expect from an ideal vacation. We are always on the go and this stay made us relax and truly made me see what and how a true vacation should be. The communication leading up to our stay, pick-up at the airport, availability if we needed anything during our stay and send off truly make this property like no other. The island is SAFE!! The locals ENJOY speaking to and teaching guests about their island. The walkability of them island, snorkeling right off the property, beaches without crowds and amazing fresh food (Turks Head Inne, Annette’s Pizza, Local fish fry) exceeded all expectations but best of all was being able to be staying at the Love Villas that included everything you need and more to live in luxury on vacation! You can feel how sound the building is when you walk in, the pottery barn furniture is SO comfortable and the mattresses and linens are likely the most comfortable I’ve slept on! We will be back!! Thank you Richard and Yohamna for the beyond exceptional stay!
Thank You for your fabulous review! We are so glad you had such an amazing Vacation at LOVE Villas Grand Turk! We look soo forward to your next visit with us. Thanks again for taking such good care of the Villa.

Vacation of a Lifetime
We absolutely loved LOVE VILLA and the island of Grand Turk. The property was immaculate, literally right on the beach. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in top notch accommodations you cannot go wrong here. Richard and Yohamma care for their guests like family. If you need help with even the smallest things they are always available to assist you. We hope to return soon. I have only been back home for 2 days and I am ready to head back to Love Villas.
Thank you Angela for your Great Review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your time on the island and that we were able to be a part of that. We look forward to your next visit soon!
Your LOVE Villas Family
They do a great job at Love Villas
We loved our stay there. They have literally thought of everything. The work they put in for those 3 villas is amazing. We are VRBO owners with high expectations and they exceeded almost every one of them. The Gem car was great. The kitchen is stocked with everything including a Ninja blender etc. Showers were terrific! The beds were so comfortable we are interested in buying the same mattresses. We used the paddle boards, deck chairs, and floats. You are only 100 yards from where the fisherman bring in lobster, fish, conchs etc. so we would walk down and pick up fresh seafood in the evening. Richard has high end grills right on the back deck to grill whatever you have. Restaurants are very good but a little pricey (expected). The local islanders are very friendly and you feel safe at all times. The water is as amazing as it looks in the photos. Donkeys are everywhere on the island and add to the eccentricity of Grand Turk. We will definitely be back!
Thank you for your great review! It was our pleasure having you as our guest and we look forward to your next visit.
