Footprints is a large, modern, contemporary Grace Bay Villa rental in the Turks and Caicos, privately set in an acre of tropical grounds, the residence enjoys 100 feet of frontage overlooking the beautiful Grace Bay.

Every room enjoys breathtaking westerly ocean views, with 2 of the en-suites having ocean facing bath tubs!

A large outdoor summer lounge is a unique feature, bedecked with Dedon furniture, as is the sunset deck with a gas fire pit on the ocean edge sea wall - to enjoy the wondrous sunsets. Shaded outdoor dining area, pool side. With an amazing Italian designer kitchen, Philip Starck sanitary ware, glass-walled dining room and second 'media' lounge (surround sound TV), this is the best in luxurious beach living. The house is perfect for a caribbean beach wedding too. Many have used Footprints for this and other events.

We designed and built Footprints from scratch. We used a design unique and new to the island, being contemporary, stylish and expansive. We focused on the view the villa affords of the beauty of the ocean. With so many old styles of villa on the island, we knew the way forward was to create a villa which is fresh, chic and dynamic.

Footprints sleeps up to 12 within 5 bedrooms (to accommodate 12, this would mean 8 adults and 4 children (sharing the 4-child suite). If all adults, the villa accommodates for 10.

The property is gated for your reassurance.

To ensure relaxation is the key to your stay. We are proud we own and operate the villa ourselves. No off-island management for us. We and our staff look after you from your initial enquiry through to your arrival and your stay with us. If you need any help, advice or assistance we are right here. Guests can be reassured that our service is speedy, focused and respectful.

All our little touches ...

We hope we have thought of everything and more! As you would expect we load Footprints with lots of thick, fluffy towels, bathrobes, Clarins toiletries, beach towels, the best bed linen, beach toys. TV’s in each room with Direct TV, beach and pool loungers and even a ocean view gas fire pit! Perfect for s'mores!!

And finally, Footprints has been the venue for more villa weddings than any other. If you are planning on tying the knot, on the beach, and relaxing in your own beach home during this special time, Footprints On The Beach is ideal for small events up to 20 additional guests. We know and can advise on great wedding coordinators. Event fee - $35 per attendee (for all guests attending, excluding the villa's resident guests).

So we invite you to send us an enquiry and we will answer as many questions as you may have regarding availability, cost, location, the island, airline information transfers etc. We have stacks of additional photos in addition to the limited number allowed on this site, so just ask!

We look forward to welcoming you to Footprints Villa, Grace Bay.

See you soon!

About The Affleck Family

The Affleck's bought a virgin piece of land, where the villa now stands, in 2006. Using local architects and builders, they oversaw the design and construction of what became Footprints Villa a few years later, on the most wonderful stretch of Grace Bay Beach there is, and voted in 2017 as yet again The Worlds Best Beach at the World Travel Awards.

Originally from the UK, they moved along with son JJ (who started school there at nine years of age and, only 2 years ago, he completed his A levels at the island's Collegiate College).

In April 2017, the family tragically lost Cally Affleck to cancer.

Her enthusiasm and wish for Footprints to continue to be happy and joyous home for family and visitors alike continues. The family continue to assist all guests directly, and the long service staff at the property await you, and all will ensure a huge welcome and a vacation all will enjoy and remember.

The Affleck Family purchased this villa in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came for Spring Break and the weather was perfect and hot. We para-sailed, paddle boarded, went fishing, did snuba, wake boarding, Water Ski and Wake surf. We shopped went on a sunset cruise and enjoyed lots of relaxing around Footprints. Thank you to all the staff who were great.

We had a great time in the sun, had beautiful weather. We appreciated all the help in the house. We were truly on vacation! Nothing can match the color of the water and the beach here. Great Spring Break for our family.

Pure Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 4 kids had a wonderful week at Footprints Villa in Turks and Caicos! From the first moment to the last, we were treated like family and we were able to completely unplug and relax.

The villa was exactly as photographed. All the rooms were clean and in good repair, the views to the ocean were stunning. We loved the outdoor seating areas and spent most of our time gathered around the pool or down at the beach. Unfortunately, the hurricanes from last year have severely eroded the beach directly in front of the villa, but a staircase was constructed that allowed us to walk over to a clear and open beach area perfect for sand castles and swimming.

The best part of staying at Footprints is Nadine and her staff. They were gracious and accommodating. Always there to make sure we were comfortable but somehow they were never in the way. When we travel, we prefer staying at villas and homes vs. hotels because it allows us to really spend time together as a family. One of the drawbacks is often the fact that we spend a lot of our time preparing meals and cleaning up afterward. At Footprints we didn't have to lift a finger. I don't think we even had to clean a dish the whole week.

The meals that Nadine prepared were fresh, varied, and full of local flavors. Every night the table was set and food served seamlessly. Every morning the breakfast was ready as we started the day and cleaned up before we could get our sunscreen on. We'd take towels down to the beach or over to the pool area and before we knew it, a fresh stack of towels would appear, ready for the next adventure. Our rooms were cleaned and made up daily. Our dirty clothes were gathered, washed, and folded on our beds more than once. It was a truly full service experience that allowed us to relax and connect as a family.

Oh, and let's not forget, one of the most beautiful beaches on earth as your constant backdrop.

We highly recommend Footprints. A fabulous and truly unforgettable week.

Beautiful beachfront property perfect for family!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first stay at Footprints on the Beach, although we have visited the island many times. This holiday experience lived up to our expectations! The house location, just steps from the water, and the layout were perfect for our multi generational family with lots of different activities. The on-site staff are so kind and accommodating, and the meals were phenomenal.

Highly recommended for a relaxed holiday with all the comforts of home on the breathtakingly beautiful Grace Bay.

Amazing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week filled with playing in the ocean, walking the beach and relaxing. Chef Nadine and her staff went over and above to care for our family. That is not easy when one member has severe food allergies.

Footprints was Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent trip to Footprints was about as good as it gets! It is the ultimate way to relax and enjoy your vacation. From the moment you even consider making a reservation to the last good bye as you leave to go home, every detail is thought of. The villa is perfect! Plenty of rooms for large families or multiple couples/families and children. The entire staff does an amazing job of making sure you enjoy your stay. The private chef was a main reason we chose Footprints over other options, and Chef Nadine exceeded all expectations. She had people in our group who are some of the pickiest eaters, asking for 2nds and 3rds. The bar for future vacations has certainly been raised after this trip!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at Footprints on the Beach! I really did not think that our trip could be any better than when we stayed at the house three years ago; however, it absolutely was. The house staff makes all the difference in the world, their services make the trip absolutely magical. These people are amazing and have a little (actually a huge) piece of my heart. If anyone is looking for an amazing vacation I highly recommend Footprints on the Beach on TCI - the best experience ever! No cooking, no grocery shopping, no cleaning, no sweeping sand, no doing or folding laundry, no worrying about your beach chairs - it is all taken care of for you...... This crew is golden! Oh and the beaches are absolutely amazing! God truly outdid himself when he created the Turks and Caicos beaches and water. There truly is not a prettier sight on earth! The only regret we had was not staying longer. We will be back!

As Footprints fronts onto Grace Bay Beach, if you choose to enjoy a boat charter, many of the companies on island know the villa and can collect from the villa's beach. Great for snorkeling, fishing trips, paragliding etc. Just ask us for recommendations.
