Like Your Own Private Island
Villa Moonshadow combines stunning oceanfront views, a comfortable open floor plan, pool and all of the conveniences of home. Protected by lush gardens surrounding the property, you and your friends and family will feel like you are on your own private island. 5 air-conditioned bedrooms comfortably accommodate larger groups. All bathrooms have been remodeled, there is a large outdoor screened area as well as a huge poolside sun deck. You may never want to leave the villa, although the best of what Providenciales has to offer is just a short drive away.
After spending over 15 years vacationing on the island, the owner discovered this incredible location that combines privacy and island-style luxury. Whether you simply want a serene place to soak in the pool while reading a good book or to go offshore for the fishing trip of a lifetime, there are no limitations at Villa Moonshadow. The villa includes a private dock and three two-person kayaks. The ocean is crystal clear and perfect for swimming, snorkeling or casting a line for a variety of fish.
Moonshadow has a fully functional, well-equipped kitchen with all of the conveniences of home. Whether grilling fresh locally-caught lobster or fish on the state-of-the-art outdoor grill or cooking up breakfast, lunch or dinner indoors, you have the flexibility to dine at the villa or enjoy any of the great restaurants within minutes of your driveway. Several grocery stores are nearby, including a large IGA that stocks everything you would expect from a mainland store. Upon your arrival, there will likely be a few food staples (and liquor) in the cabinets and fridge. Please help yourself.
The villa benefits from an almost constant tradewind that provides almost perfect conditions, but ceiling fans and air conditioners are also in every room (see note below).
The villa has two washers and dryers! This is especially handy for larger groups with children and for those who prefer to pack light.
Providenciales is a wonderful island. It's slow pace helps us relax and enjoy everything there is to do. While there are many activities on the island, the island is not huge on tourism which is what we were looking for.
Left on Aug 1, 2016 for a stay in Jul 2016 Villa Moonshadow is the perfect venue for a family vacation. Our family of ten traveled from CA and MD to bask in the beauty of Turks & Caicos and relax in the comforts of Villa Moonshadow -- truly the perfect home away from home. Lana is an exceptional hostess and focused on our every need, from helping with pre-travel planning to insuring our up-most comfort during our stay. The little details did not go unnoticed when it came to our comfort. Villa Moonshadow feels more like a home than a rental. It is obvious that it has been the site of family gatherings and a hub for relaxation. It's oceanfront view is breathtaking and the cliffs are stunning. It is only a short 3 minute walk to Taylor Beach -- perhaps my new favorite beach of all time! The property managers, Claudius and Donny, were very attentive and timely to our needs. Donny met us at the airport and gave us a tour of the Villa. He was even so kind as to deliver bug spray and citronella candles when I mentioned pesky mosquitos. Villa Moonshadow is a perfect location if you want a safe and secure area, away from the commercialized Grace Bay area. We also recommend M&J Charters for a day or 1/2 day customized day on the water. We explored the area, visited Iguana Island,snorkeled the reefs, swam with sharks and dolphins, ate lunch on a most gorgeous secluded Pine Cay beach and watched the sunset. Captain Jacket and his crew were outstanding.
Being an owner of another Villa on this island I was disappointed when my extended family decided to visit and my home was booked. But the owners of Moonshadow had a vacancy and welcomed our family with open arms.
I was so thrilled with the beauty of this property. The home was impeccably clean and the owners provided us with everything we needed. From all the floats and coolers we needed to washer, dryer and plenty of refrigerator space.
The home was so comfortable but I will say we lived outside most of the time, enjoying the pool and spending time in the ocean. On a windy day we just let our floats take us over to Taylor Bay Beach and then walked back home.
Every evening was a delightful dinner in the screen in porch where dinner always included much laughter and beautiful sunsets.
I can't say enough good things about this Villa and location. The owners were gracious and welcoming and their management team and maids top notch.
Thank for the memories.
We were three families coming together at this gem of a property on Turks & Caicos, in order to celebrate my sister's wedding and share Christmas together. I have booked homes for vacations previously, but the level of attention and sincere care shown us by owner Lana was unparalleled, as was the beauty of the property. I couldn't have been happier with our stay and highly recommend the villa.
There is plenty of room to spread out in this villa, so that each guest can have both socializing and private space. In addition to the main living area and a kitchen with all the cooking amenities you will need, there is an upstairs lounge area, the deck & pool area, and a spacious screened-in porch with eating area, sofa & chairs and a television. Although we had no problem with bugs during our December stay, it was peace of mind in the evenings and early morning to have my children playing with their toys outdoors in a screened in area. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioners worked very well, which may seem like a little detail, but means a lot to people like myself who enjoy sleeping in cold temperatures!
This home is just a few minutes' walk from Taylor Bay, which is a spectacular, non crowded beach perfect for a family with young children like ours. The house provides folding chairs and plenty of beach towels for your use. Taylor Bay's waters are the most beautiful sparkling turquoise, the sand is a brilliant white, and the waters are very shallow, perfect for wading and kayaking. The house offers kayaks with life jackets, and it is an easy 3 minute ride around the corner to the bay. The beach was so gorgeous that my sister chose the spot for her intimate wedding ceremony, rather than some of the more well known spots near Grace Bay. In addition to the nearby beach, there are beautiful clear waters right at the villa's dock where guests can snorkel and swim.
There is a well stocked grocery store nearby the villa, but prices are steep so try to pack what pantry items you can. During our stay we had a dinner at the villa catered by Caicos Catering which was a splurge but a wonderful way to have a fabulous family meal right by the villa's own pool, taking in that gorgeous ocean view.
The house is very clean, and a mid week cleaning was provided for us and very appreciated.
Lana, thank you so much for opening your home up for us. We had the vacation to remember for a lifetime!
This is our second trip to Turks and Caicos from California. We much prefer a rental house or condo over a resort or hotel. We like the flexibility of cooking our own meals or going out if the mood hits us. We often travel with other couples and families so a house like Villa Moonshadow is ideal. As good as the photos are, they don't adequately describe how gorgeous it is there. The interior is an open plan with adequate ceiling fans and A/C for warm ocean breezes or cooling off after a long day in the sun. The pool and deck look like they have recently been resurfaced and much of the interior, including the bathrooms, has been updated as well.
The property is surrounded by tall trees and other vegetation and it is very private. We like to snorkel and swim which is made easy by the villa's private dock. There are also three kayaks to use for no additional charge. We kayaked around the corner and spent the day at a beautiful white sand beach with just of handful of other people passing by. It's a refreshing change from crowded tourist beaches.
The place is super-clean, well-maintained and the owners were responsive to our questions before we secured our vacation dates. We'll be back!
When you book a vacation, you can only hope to find the perfect place that's worth every penny you spend. This is it! We are a group of 3 families (6 adults, 3 children) that have been on several vacations together including Hawaii and Grand Cayman, and nothing compared to our recent trip to TCI and Villa Moonshadow.
Renting a house not only gives you room to gather, but it also gives you privacy from other vacationers as well as from your group if needed. This house has plenty of space for both! The amenities are second to none with granite throughout, beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds and everything else you could ever want or need. But the outside amenities and location are what really make this house a gem. Between the decent size swimming pool, the turquoise water off your back dock and the serenity and white sands of Taylor Beach (just a 3 minute walk or kayak) you honestly never want or need to leave the house.
The grocery store is conveniently located (although a little pricey), so just bring along as many dry goods as you can. You can also buy fish and lobster right off the dock every afternoon, it doesn't get any fresher than that!
Finally, the owners, Lana and Charlie, are second to none. They are attentive and genuinely care if you are happy and well taken care of. In fact, she checked in on us and we mentioned that the kitchen could use a sharper knife for filleting fish and she actually dropped new ones off for us the next day! How's that for hospitality?
For us, it's not a matter of if we're going back, it's simply a matter of when.
We have rented a few homes over the years from VRBO and this one tops them all! We had everything we needed and more- the owners Lana and Charlie did a great job with the villa and took excellent care of us. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was equipped with all the utensils and gadgets we needed, and the entire place was super clean. Some of our most memorable days were the ones where we stayed at the house all day, relaxing by the pool, kayaking and swimming off the wonderful deck, and enjoying the sunshine and beautiful breeze! We also loved that Taylor Bay beach was a 2 minute walk down the street, as it is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed it and we can't wait to go back!
This was our fist time to Turks and Caicos and we chose the best place to stay! Danielle was very helpful in answering all of our questions and making sure we had all of the information we needed. Moonshadow is clean and a very comfortable home. We loved spending days going back and forth between the pool and the dock at the ocean. We snorkeled right off the dock and it was great. Three times we waived the fishermen over and bought fresh gouper and lobster and we cooked it on the grill. We enjoyed lovely dinners by candlelight in the screened in porch. It was easy to navigate the island and the grocery stores are well-stocked. Taylor Bay, a lovely beach is a short 5 minute walk away. And don't miss dinner at Las Brisas! This was an extremely relaxing week and this is a perfect spot -- we'll be back!
