The Bight Settlement Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Are you looking for an affordable, convenient and pretty vacation spot on Providenciales?

Welcome to Villa Daisanadu, a central, breezy, hilltop location overlooking Turtle Cove Marina and the Atlantic Ocean. This entirely self-contained one bedroom apartment occupies the lower level of our home in Providenciales. Amenities include spacious bedroom with king-sized bed and a/c, living room with LCD TV, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom and private laundry room. The large deck, with it's sweeping views, is designed for your relaxation and privacy. Cable and wi-fi are provided for your convenience.

With it's native vegetation and xeriscaping, our 2-acre garden boasts some of the island's oldest and most beautiful Lignum Vitae trees, many of them over 500 years old. It has been photographed by the Turks & Caicos National Trust, scouted as a location for numerous photo shoots, and featured on an international website.

The house is a short walk (less than 2 minutes, all downhill)to the many restaurants and bars of Turtle Cove, yet is private and quiet. A little farther away, but still within easy walking distance (less than 10 minutes), begins the western end of world-famous Grace Bay beach and the great snorkeling of Smith's Reef. With the Marina right at the doorstep, the spot is ideal for people wishing to dive, deep sea fish or just take one of the many excursions that leave from the dock.

Turtle Cove is the perfect location for your holiday. Situated more or less in the middle of Providenciales, it's a great spot to easily access the numerous sights of the island. There are 5 restaurants, 2 dive operators, 2 fishing charters, and 2 snorkeling charters located right in the Marina! A bike, scooter and car rental shop is also on-site, should you decide to explore other parts of the island. A gym and tennis court lie just across the road. IGA, the main grocery store, is 1.6 miles away. The airport is 4.5 miles (a $15 cab ride) away. The ferry to North Caicos is a 15 minute drive.

Feel free to contact us for additional photos or with any questions you may have.

About The Owner

We have lived on the island for over 15 years and love to share our recommendations with our visitors.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Providenciales - Provo

We fell in love with the house when we first saw it in 2002 and bought it a year later. Designed by well-known architect Jeff Lee of Lee & Astwood Architects, it is perfectly situated to take in the beautiful ocean views and the comings and goings in Turtle Cove Marina. The apartment is used through winter as a guest suite for our many friends and relatives who visit. When we don't have guests staying with us, we rent the apartment out on a short-term basis.

What makes this apartment unique

Save your $$$$.

An affordable alternative to staying in the more expensive hotel district. You still get the benefits of the beach, without the crowds and cost. Turtle Cove has a small town feel and everything you need is really close by. All the money you save can be used for umbrella drinks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything that has ever been written in reviews on Trip Advisor about this place are spot on and deserves all of the great reviews. Barb from the start was friendly, helpful and easy to deal with. The location of her rental is perfect - away from the tourist scene on Grace Bay yet very close to everything you needed. The marina located 5 minutes walk away has several great restaurants and the best snorkelling on the island is the same distance away. The apartment was every bit as described on the website - spacious, well equipped with many extras that proved useful (snorkelling gear, sun umbrella, coolers etc). And so quiet and peaceful. All this and at such a reasonable price. I would recommend hiring a car as some of the best beaches are a drive away (Taylor Bay, Saprodilla, Chalk Sound etc). The snorkelling was unbelievable and so accessible right off the beach at Smith's Reef. The beach here was never crowded and often we were the only ones there. Every day we saw new types of fish and coral, and even a turtle and stingray. This is truly a place in paradise!

Perfect location and beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Diasanadu and would recommend it to anyone! Perfect location with easy walking access to the beach and the great restaurants of Turtle Cove. The large deck had beautiful views of the marina and ocean, perfect for enjoying coffee in the morning and drinks in the afternoon. Owners Barb and Martin were such great hosts that made us feel right at home. We will definitely be back!

Excellent home, perfect location, best owners

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were thrilled with Barb and Martin's apartment. The veranda overlooking the bay is a wonderful location for morning coffee, a beach lunch break and after beach drinks. We enjoyed the many restaurants within walking distance, the snorkeling spots and beaches only several minutes drive away on an uncrowded road, and knowledge of the availability of Barb and Martin. The apartment was extremely comfortable, having a large amount of space and all needs provided for. Having stayed in the Grace Bay area one year ago, we found Turtle cove to be far superior.

Priceless view, great value!

  • 5 of 5

Daisanadu came highly recommended, and didn't disappoint. The apartment is on a hillside that overlooks Turtle Cove Marina and Smiths Reef. Enjoyed coffee on the large deck overlooking the marina every morning. The location is fairly central and the entire island is reachable within a short car drive. You won't find a better value for your money on Provo. Barb is a great host. We would gladly return.

Our honeymoon started out at Villa Daisanadu and it was perfect! Relaxing, spacious, clean, with beautiful views. Barb is an excellent host, she's friendly, funny and very helpful. She has beach gear for you to use and a cell phone to make calls on island. Close to great restaurants and easy to find. This was definitely our home for the week, so much better than crowded resorts or hotels. Thank you Barb for an awesome welcome to TCI!

Everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned from ten wonderful days at Villa Daisanadu. It was our first time to Providenciales and we had relied on photos and previous reviews, (as well as the very reasonable cost), when choosing our accommodations. We were not disappointed! The view from the large porch is even better than the photo and that is where we spent most of our time whenever we were "home". We could even wake up to the sight of the turquoise waters from the very comfortable king sized bed! Barb was an excellent host, always available to answer questions and offer tips about the area. The unique design of the villa, however, gives you the feeling of your own private residence. With a small car we easily explored the island from one end to the other but we usually ended up back in Turtle Cove for the evenings, taking a short stroll to one of the nearby restaurants. All in all an excellent vacation - can't wait to return!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose Villa Diasanadu for our week on Provo. The location is convenient to just about everything, without being in the middle of the mega-resorts.

We love having a "home" rather than a hotel room on vacation, and this felt much like a home to us. Barb had even placed a miniature Christmas tree on the table (we were there for Christmas). Nice touch!

Everything you need in order to have an enjoyable vacation is provided. Beach chairs, towels, beach towels, etc. are all provided. Copies of the latest dining guide and the latest "Where When How" magazine were on hand - very helpful!

Everything is exactly as it is pictured here on the listing. The villa was clean and tidy, nothing in disrepair that we could see. We used the washing machine one time and didn't mind hanging our things out to dry on the line (think someone complained about that in a previous review).

The kitchen is well equipped with enough pans, utensils and dishes to cook a full meal. We mainly did breakfasts, lunches and happy hours at the villa, going out to restaurants for dinner.

The bathroom and bedroom are both roomy. No tripping over each other to get to things. The living room and dining area are perfect for two people. AC is provided in the bedroom, but we mainly just opened the windows and used fans. It was plenty cool most nights. The verandah is a great place to sit and relax after a long day at in the sun. We usually sat out there and had happy hour with some rum punch and snacks before getting ready for dinner. Very relaxing.

Graceway IGA is about a 2 minute drive. Grace Bay restaurants, resorts and shopping about 3 min. (It's a small island- nothing is too far of a drive.) Turtle Cove is walking distance, as is Magnolia. We saw many runners on the sidewalks along Lower Bight road. We didn't exercise at all this week, but felt like this would be a pretty safe place for running.

For beach access we used the first one east of Turtle Cove. This end of Grace Bay is very quiet and, thankfully there are no water sports salesmen hassling you to sign up for para-sailing or banana boat rides, etc., like you'll get down by the resorts. It felt almost like a private beach. This particular beach access also puts you right at the best part of Smith's Reef for snorkeling.

We would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again if we return to Provo.
