About Lucille

I had worked for a time in the hotel industry, and had always had an interest in making guests feel welcome in my home. So when my husband passed away, and our daughters went off to university and the cottage became to big for one person, the natural thought was to use it to help make guests visiting our island to feel right at home. There is much to enjoy here, and think that creating memories are so important. We believe that by hosting guests at our cottage we have a small part in helping them create lasting memories when they spend their vacation with us.

Lucille purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Lucille chose World

Our family came to the Turks & Caicos Islands, the land of our heritage, and fell in love with the natural beauty of the place. The close proximity to the world-renown Grace Bay beach from any location on the island of Providenciales, locally known as Provo, had a special appeal. We especially liked the residential area of Leeward Estates, tucked away at the eastern tip of Provo and Grace Bay Beach, and chose to build our cottage there in 2007, because you can enjoy the best of both worlds, so to speak. You can have as much peace and quiet as you would like on the one hand, and in less than a 10-minute drive away have all the entertainment and excitement you want on the other hand.

The cottage was built as our family home when our daughters were younger with an attached Study that was converted into a Mother-in-Law suite now that they are grown.

What makes this cottage unique

The two-storey side of the cottage has two bedrooms and two and a half baths. The bedroom on the ground floor has a Queen-size bed and an en-suite bath with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom takes up the entire second floor. It has two (2) Queen beds, a private bath with a tub and a Study area. There is an deck off the second-floor bedroom, ideal for private sunbathing or a nightcap before bed.

Folks like the convenience of the half-bath on the ground floor, and the Washer & Dryer, as well as the outdoor clothes line for air drying swimsuits and scuba suits.

Many of our guests appreciate the close proximity to world-class restaurants, Supermarket, the famous Grace Bay Beach for swimming and snorkeling at the world's third largest Barrier Reef. We are a five-minute drive away from the South Shore where some of the best Kite Boarding and Parasailing on the island happens.

The White Cottage can sleep up to six (6), so whether you're a couple, a family or a group of friends, the Cottage provides an oasis to relax after an active day.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Providenciales for the first time over New Year's. We found the White Cottage online and were impressed with the positive reviews and affordable price. The cottage and the island did not disappoint! Although Lucille was out of town when we arrived, she arranged for someone to meet us and had stocked the fridge and cupboards with fruit, breads, and even sparkling cider for a New Year's toast! The cottage met our needs perfectly. It was fully stocked with linens, towels, beach towels, toilet paper, and even shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. Everything was extremely clean and fans were provided in all rooms in case the cottage was too warm (which at this time of the year, it wasn't). As travelers, eating out can be expensive and having a kitchen was a great addition to our accommodations. IGA is not too far away for groceries. Lucille also provides a cell phone, which came in very handy when our car had a flat tire. The island of Providenciales is small, however renting a car while staying at the White Cottage is definitely recommended. My husband and I enjoyed exploring many of the beaches on the island and going to more "local" eateries, so having a car was a must for us.

The White Cottage is attached to another home, and we had an opportunity to get to know the neighbours (including their very friendly dog!) while we were there. All of the people we met on the island were extremely friendly and this was easily one of the safest places we have ever been to.

As mentioned above, my husband and I enjoyed trying some of the local restaurants and those right on the beach. Our favourites included "Sailing Paradise" for red snapper located in Blue Hills and "Somewhere" cafe on the beach for fish fajitas in front of Coral Gardens (which is a beautiful place to snorkel).

If you're looking to save money but still enjoy a bit of resort life, a good idea would be to buy a Club Med day pass. Club Med is not far from the White Cottage, and a day pass costs $50 a person. The day pass includes food, drinks, use of the pool and all water activities (sailing, snorkel trip, etc). It was a great idea for a day, and we definitely recommend trying it.

Overall, we couldn't be happier with our stay at The White Cottage and our visit to Providenciales.

Turks Vacation 2013

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot for a couple in a nice quiet, safe area of Leeward. Only a short 5 min drive from town, a car is recommended however it is an easy 10 - 15 min walk to the beach from here as well as the ferry and Big Blue Unlimited (for excursions - scuba, snorkeling, kayaking, sightseeing, etc...) Lucille, the owner is absolutely fabulous and looks after her guests extremely well, including the provision of a cell phone along with several groceries to get you started, like bread, fruit, drinks, & more.... This unit is actually attached to a larger house, so you have the safety of having people right next door as well - they live here year round and are also very nice people. IGA & shopping is also only a short drive into town, Casino is about half way between town and the cottage, you drive by it on your way. Recommend snorkeling right off the beach at Bight's Reef Iin front of Coral Gardens (condos) you can see tons of amazing fish, lobsters, sea turtles and large rays swimming around and it is a free public area. Best we've ever seen especially having access by just walking in.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the White Cottage. Lucille was a great host and most welcoming. Her hospitality is spot on when you arrive to the clean comfortable cottage stocked with the little things to start your stay off right. Although we rarely used the cell phone provided it was very convienent on a couple of occasions. The cottage is located in a nice enclave with gated security at night but everywhere is safe on the island. We left the door unlocked most days and had no problems. We rented a car for two days. One to get to the cottage and get groceries. Then once more to see Chalk Sound and return the airport. So a car is not a must but convienent. We rode our beach cruiser rentals the rest of the time and had a great time. Beaches are close by wherever you go.

Everything about this trip was relaxing and comfortable. I recommend this place if your on a bit of budget and enjoy a do it yourself kind of traveling.

The White Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the White Cottage. It was very clean, quiet, cozy and well situated within a couple miles of Grace Bay and the resorts and restaurants/shopping. The owner is super thoughtful and a joy to deal with and the place was much, much nicer than we were expecting and we were right at home.

Excellent spot for vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage from Jan. 2nd to Jan 9th. My fiancé and I found everything to be wonderful. We do not like touristy things, which is why the cottage was perfect for us. It is very very close to the beach and all tourist attractions, but is secluded enough that we were not bombarded with carousing tourists each night. Our only neighbors were the couple that live in the adjacent part of the house, and we had no interactions with them. Everything was very clean and charming, and Lucille was the most gracious host; we asked her multiple questions about everything, and she had a lot of patience with us and even helped us book snorkeling trips and island hopping tours. She also provided us with unexpected amenities, such as toiletries, all linens, a phone, food to start the vacation, many tourist magazines and books, etc. On a side note (because I always wonder about such things when renting a vacation property), the water pressure is great, water is hot, the place is in an excellent area, and everything works. A car is definitely needed if you stay here, but that is anywhere on the island, unless you plan to never ever leave your hotel. I can't say enough good things about our stay, or about Lucille. We hope to be back in the near future.

Honeymoon Christmas 2011

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the White Cottage from the 17th to 26th of December 2011. We were very pleased with the accomodations, the place was very clean and well kept. Lucille had even set up a little Christmas tree!! Lucille was a wonderful and gracious host, inviting us to have Christmas dinner with her family. It was a Christmas and vacation that we will never forget! The cottage is close to all amenities and 'touristy' spots along Grace Bay, you are never more than a 3 minute drive from what you need. We spent most of our mornings at Sapodilla beach and Taylor beach, which were more private and secluded. We highly recommend driving to the other end of the island and checking these places out! A rental car is a must if staying at the White Cottage; we rented from Grace Bay Car Rentals and will do so again on our return. The cottage was perfect for two people, it had everything we required and it felt like 'home'. When we arrived, Lucille had stocked the kitchen with essentials to get us started, and that gesture was a foreshadowing of her kindness. We are glad that we chose the White Cottage and cannot wait to return and enjoy the beauty and people of Provo!!

Owner's Response: It is our extreme pleasure to have folks come to our cottage, so we do whatever we can to make their stay comfortable while they enjoy all that our lovely country has to offer. Though not on the beach, our guests have the best of both worlds, so to speak, in that they are very close to the beach and all of the activities, or they can just have the peace and quiet that they may desire. We look forward to you coming and enjoying our little piece of Paradise!
