Guestbook comments from the owner

This is my second trip to the Ryder Retreat and it is an absolute paradise. Watching the sunrise every morning over the pool was the best way to start the day. The home gym is fantastic. I used it every day. The house is spacious and very comfortable. I recommend the Ryder Retreat to anyone, whether it's a family or a will love it!

Amazing Hilltop Location with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing week at this beautiful home. It was close to everything, but very private and relaxing. It seemed as though we were on the highest point of the island with continuous breezes and gorgeous views of the turquoise ocean. The beds were soft and comfortable, the house was clean and tidy and the kitchen was bright and open with 2nd floor views of the ocean over the pool. It was tempting to spend the entire vacation without leaving the private gated retreat but we found our way to try some fabulous dining establishments as well as several local beaches and snorkeling/paragliding trips. Altogether a wonderful stay!

Great Villa on Amazing Island....

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, 2 adults and 2 teens, enjoys island experiences somewhat away from the typical tourist areas so that we can experience some true culture, meet islanders, see natural attractions, and enjoy local restaurants and activities... but, still spend time at beaches and tourist spots. Our stay at the Ryder Retreat in February 2018 was simply awesome -- It gave us the perfect blend of exposure to all the activities that we crave, and the quiet, private, close family time that we cherish.

The Ryder Retreat was in fantastic condition when we arrived -- bright and clean -- and cool, thanks to Shawn, the owner's assistant who met us at the airport and provided concierge treatment for the first few hours on the island and prepared the house for our arrival. Each of our teenagers staked claim to their own room, and we enjoyed a back bedroom with a view of the pool/spa, ocean, and sunrise right from our bed. We utilized the US-style grocery store about 15 minutes away, which allowed us to stock up on everything that we didn't bring (we have never seen a Caribbean grocery store so similar to what we have at home in NY). We were not sure what to expect relative to lingering issues related to the hurricane, but you really had to look hard to find any damage, debris, or destruction -- the home, island, and businesses are all cleaned up.

The home's location served us very well as we explored the islands for a week. We ate breakfast and lunch at the house, and dined out for our dinners. Every night, we tried a new restaurant, and we were never more than a 20-minute ride away. In the mornings, we would find natural or secluded places to walk, and again, were never more than a quick car ride away from the most beautiful beaches and spots on the island.

After busy days or workouts, the Ryder's pool is magnificent -- a clean, deep, warm salt water pool just steps away from the refrigerator with cold drinks and a great music system with outdoor speakers, which the kids enjoyed playing their iPods' playlists on while relaxing in the pool.

The Ryder location really enabled us to explore what we think is, arguably, one of the most beautiful islands that we have ever seen. The turquoise water, rocky shore, white beaches, and non-stop sunshine could be seen wherever you went. The quality of the home made for a very relaxing and comfortable base. And, Lorri and Brian's attention to details and communication made the visit easy and efficient.

Perfectection in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent one perfect week in this beautiful home We loved everything about it from the feeling of privacy and seclusion, yet proximity to everything from shopping, beaches, and restaurants, to the very well appointed and every day use of the home gym (it made it much easier to indulge guilt- free in all the varied yet yummy local food and beverage offerings ) Our children, aged 15 and 11, loved the pool and my husband and I loved that we could keep an eye on them swimming while we grabbed our mid-morning work out. We went parasailing and jet skiing, both were equally as exciting and exhilarating as the other! We wanted to ride the famous Provo Ponies, but they were booked for the month, so we will keep that in mind and book way ahead next year. For a family with picky eaters (not just the kids!) we all had great food at Shay Cafe, Turks Kabobs, and Da Conch Shack (where we ate on the beach during sunset with the band starting up for the night, a really special moment in time) We also loved going to Graceway Gourmet and stocking up the fridge and pantry so we could just stay at the house chilling if we chose to. The weather was ideal every day, with the sun kissing our skin to tan and the gentle wind blowing thru the palms fronds. Thank you for sharing your lovely home: we will cherish our Ryder Retreat memories forever!

Wonderful Stay for Two Kiteboarding Families

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our baby, and another family, with their 2 babies, recently stayed at the Ryder retreat in April 2016. This villa is very spacious - despite three crying babies, we could escape to the upstairs or downstairs for privacy and quiet.

This villa is very well kept, clean, and modern. The caretaker Shawn was extremely friendly and helpful. One day we lost our car keys and he came to drive us to the rental car company to get another set. The fact that linens, bath towels and beach towels are all provided was very convenient. The villa had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable stay: the kitchen is fully equipped (pots, pans, coffee maker, blender - the only thing missing is a kettle!), there is ensuite laundry, several bathrooms for multiple guests, and the pool was lovely with recliners all around. We are fitness fanatics so the gym was an incredible bonus!! It is also fully equipped with several weight machines, free weights, etc. The only thing lacking is cardio equipment as the bike wasn't working, but that's not a big deal as we could go for an early morning run!

We went to Turks for the kiteboarding on Long Bay Beach so we spent many days there. We were hoping that the villa would be a little bit closer (that would be the only fault I can find with this place) as it was a good 12 minute drive, whereas it would have been nice to have something walking distance. But the views from the villa are beautiful as it sits on top of a hill so we enjoyed watching the sunrises.

Despite the heat, we managed to keep cool just by opening the doors and windows to let the breeze through. We only used the air conditioning in the bedrooms at nighttime and turned it off during the day when we went out.

Lorri and Brian, the owners, were very responsive and accommodating. They allowed us to extend our stay at the last minute (when we realized the wind was picking up for kitesurfing!).

We happily give an EXCELLENT recommendation if you are considering this villa for your stay in Turks!

Perfect place to stay on a visit to Turks and Caicos

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the chance to stay at the Ryder Retreat with 3 college-aged kids. The house is beautiful and well-maintained. My son enjoyed use of the gym, which was pretty elaborate and included weights and an exercise bike.

We loved the pool, too and the view from the terrace and the pool was stunning. There was also a viewing deck across the street that we used to take pictures of the sunset.

One of the best things we liked about it was the location. It was close to the beautiful beach and excitement of Grace Bay, but I loved being on a quieter part of the island. The first day we walked to Long Bay Beach, which was about a 10 minute walk. After that, we drove two minutes and parked on the side of the road. The beach on our end was empty each day. Further down the beach were large homes with people occasionally out on the beach. Having been to most of the Turks and Caicos beaches, this one was one of our favorites. Caicos Marina was also nearby and we were able to rent jet skis through them.

We considered Taylor Bay/Sapodilla Bay area and those beaches, but the advantage to being on the Long Bay Beach end of the island is that you are about 10 minutes from the best restaurants in Grace Bay. We highly recommend Coyaba and Coco Bistro. Make sure you make reservations before you travel as they book up, especially Coco Bistro. One of the neighbors (who was so friendly) also suggested Mr. Grouper, which we really liked, too.

We shopped at the IGA and Graceway Gourmet and had all of our breakfasts and many of our lunches in the villa.

One morning we had the local spa, Spa Tropique, come and give us all massages by the pool.

The Ryders were wonderful and easy to work with and Shawn, the caretaker, brought us to the house from the airport and was very accessible if we needed him. The Ryders give you a cell phone that we used to make local calls to the restaurants. Can't recommend this villa highly enough!

Long Bay Hills is minutes away from Grace Bay where you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The white fine sand is great for sandcastle building while the turquoise waters are a spectaclur site! The coral reef that surrounds the Turks and Caicos make snorkeling & suba diving popular activities for everyone.

Renting a car is the best way to see what Providenciales has to offer. It allows you the freedom to explore the island's community and visit the fabulous restaurants and attractions located across the island.
