Rafters is situated in a quiet cul de sac within the exclusive Old Leeward Development directly opposite the Parrot Cay Landing. It is sited on a 1 acre fully landscaped plot facing the canal, with a sculptured pool, large deck and an 80 feet dock with ramp access. From private terraces on the second level, the beauty of the mangroves and small archipelago of cays that link Provo to North Caicos can be viewed. Trade winds sweeping off the 'banks' offer a cooling respite to the tropical conditions.
This villa completed in January 2010 offers 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. All of these beautifully situated spacious rooms offer king size accommodations, three with en suite shower facilities, the master having a side by side jacuzzi bath. Note that three bedrooms have fixed King size beds and that the other three/optional fourth have King size beds that have the option of being made up as twin beds. On the main level is a fully wheelchair accessible king room with en suite wet room, and of course, this room may also be made up as two twins depending on the client's wishes. In addition to the 6 bedrooms, there is also an office that may accommodate two upon request, and two additional beds may be moved into two of the upstairs guest rooms to maximize the full potential of the home. There are TVs in most bedrooms.
There is a family bathroom upstairs with separate shower and jacuzzi bath. Also on the main floor there is separate cloakroom and laundry room with both washer and dryer for the convenience of the guest.
The fully fitted professional kitchen with walk in pantry offers side by side refrigerator with lower drawer freezer, ice maker, dishwasher, microwave/convection oven, professional glass cooktop with electric oven, plus double sink with fantastic views out over the canal! Any meal can be prepared in this kitchen, with full entertaining possibilities.
Large glass sliding doors open up from the Great Room designed to entertain with a 50' television and full music system out onto the exceptionally large pool terrace overlooking the canal. All rooms and outside areas are connected for sound and individually controlled to the entertainment centre, plus Rafters is wired for wireless broadband. Indoor dining is positioned between the kitchen and living area.
Outside there is a large open air kitchen block with large built in gas grill, fridge and ice maker and table for 10-12 people. Around the kitchen area is a sit up bar and included in the block is a wet room and a storage room.
The house is well positioned to be cooled by the Leeward trade winds, but air conditioning is available at cost.
The sun hits the deck virtually the whole day, while setting directly down the canal offering the perfect reason for early sundowners!
Brid & Geof live in South East England with a large family of five children and seven grandchildren. We have been coming to Provo since 2004 and love it here. We know where to go and what to do and are happy to give you any information you need.
Cristian Rebolledo purchased this house in 2010
Brid and Geof first visited the island in 2004 and fell in love with it immediately. Knowing that this was the place for them to retire, they soon purchased their land in Leeward, but waited for several years before beginning the design and building process. They knew that a canal property would provide a neighborhood where their children and grandchildren could feel at home, while being able to have their own boat in order to spend time on the water and enjoy all that TCI has to offer. Rafters was completed in January 2010, and Brid and Geoff have enjoyed it many times with extended family and friends!
We are within the most prestigious development on the Island, somewhat away from the main hustle and bustle yet close enough to Grace Bay and the necessary shops. The house is on a cul de sac for added security and that neighborhood feel. Rafters faces down the canal for that on water experience, with the sun setting across the terrace for that perfect evening experience. The large sculptured pool with fabulous terrace designed for entertaining is complimented by full outside covered kitchen with table for 10/12 and a sit up bar. This home is the perfect venue for a celebration!
There is also an 80 feet dock with a ramp to pull out a boat. The boat for Parrot Cay leaves from just across the road and many boat excursions leave from two nearby marina facilities.
At Rafters also you can access to exclusive services as Private Chef, Maids, Private Yoga Lessons, Catering and more.
Booked this property with 10 friends for 50 th birthday celebration and boy what a great choice. This villa was a fabulous experience from the word go. Really exclusive and finished to the highest standards. Our one week stay was memorable for so many reasons but mainly because the whole property offered both a wonderful venue to join with friends/family in celebrating a special event as well as affording everyone their own personal space when required. The pool area (south facing) is spectacular as well as functional. It is perfect for a large or small event or just relaxing in the sun. The pool is safe and affords easy access and egress for young and not so young. The outdoor kitchen and dining area was perfect for our barbequeing and socialising around the 12 seater table in the evenings and the surround sound music system added to the overall ambience. The bedrooms were beautifully presented especially the west wing bedroom with balcony, which could easily cater for 20 people to enjoy a cool evening drink with a light breeze while taking in the visa over the torquoise canals that lapped gently against our private dock. Overall we had a fabulous time made so easy with the support of the awners of the property who were so helpful in making our visit stress free. Everyone agreed that this is a gem in the carribean and we have already made plans for two more significant celebrations at this heavenly paradise. You've got to experience it to believe it. Thank you.
Last October, my daughter, who lives in Providenciales and I viewed The Rafters as a possible place to stay for her wedding in April this year. I knew it would be perfect from the moment we walked in. It wasn't until all 13 members members of the 'Elder Lemons' of the bridal party actually moved in that I realised not only was it perfect but many of our other guests staying elsewhere invariably ended up with us on the canal side having sundowners- it became the hub! The house is lovely, equipped with everything you need. The poolside covered area, with dining accommodation for 14, a full kitchen, including fridge and drinks cooler, was our living area. We had a great barbarcue there for 40 on the night before the wedding.There was plenty of space, in the house itself and outside for individual privacy. The all-round handy man came daily and was magnificent and the maid fantastic! My favourite place in the early morning was sitting by the canal watching turtles, barracudas and countless other fish in the clear water. A couple of our guests swam off the flat rocks in the sea across from the front of the house but the pool was enjoyment enough for most of us. Nikki Beach is less than 5 minute's drive away. For more active members of the party, another beach leading on to the main Grace Bay area was a 20 minute walk. Great memories of a laughter-filled week! Highly recommended!
Rafters is certainly a house I would dream of owning!! There was nothing it lacked!!
Impressive was my first impression, and as I walked in and through the rooms I was even more impressed.
My children ( in their 20's) each scouted their own rooms (pre determined by the website)( like a scavenger hunt!) and were very happy with the sizes, bathrooms and amenities
( balconies & views are tremendous!). Their suitcases exploded into the spacious closets.
The pool and patio are gorgeous and a great area to "work out" or just sit and relax (my vacation!). The sound system is amazing inside & out!
The outdoor kitchen area is a great place to relax and play cards, have snacks or dinner or drinks at the bar & is convenient with the bbq grill, ice maker & fridge, (and the outdoor cabana room with bathroom!)
I loved sitting by the dock in the morning with my coffee, listening to the birds, and watching the fish in the bay, such serenity!
Rafters is a magnificent house, lots of space for everyone to do their own thing and yet be together for a wonderful family vacation!
Thank you for sharing your home with us, we all enjoyed it immensely.
Have you ever dreamt of a white sandy beach, azure blue sea, warm soft breeze in Blue skies and watching the sun go down in your own private world of wonderment the 'Rafters' is a must place to stay.
Access to this magnificent house is either by private road or boat, which has its own private dock. This grand newly constructed house has everything you require, and more than you could imagine, mainly due to the owners attention to detail to the finer things essential to a good holiday.
The owners are clearly proud of their home and did everything, and beyond, to ensure our holiday was all we had dreamt of. We would thoroughly recommend this location as it is one, if not the, best on the island.
We have started saving to go again!

The house was just as promised. The house is beautiful and had every amenity that my group of 10 needed. There was plenty of space for everyone and the rooms were all quite comfortable. We loved sitting by the pool and cooking outside on the grill. The owners were so helpful both before and during our stay. We would definitely recommend staying at the Rafters!
What a location!!! What a home!!!.
We have just returned from a holiday, with 10 others, in "Rafters".The sheer spleandour and luxury of the house , with its 7 bedrooms.its magnificent lounge and dining area with its large T.V.and all round music system,its ultra modern kitchen , was matched only by the stunning views from its balconies on to its huge deck area surrounding the sustantial swimming pool, jacuzzi and kiddies pool, and, of course, its excellent outdoor kitchen with surrounding bar containing a state of the art B.B.Q.
All of this was surrounded by colourful mature gardens that provided colour and shade during our stay.
On many evenings as we sat on the terrace to watch the sunset and welcome visitors arriving by boat to the magnificient private dock attached to the property . we really felt very priviledged.
When we reluctantly left Rafters for day trips by boat to adjoining islands we enjoyed miles of white sandy beaches and blue seas in abundance and then on occasions we visited a number of excellent restaraunts, all of which were within 10/15 minutes of Rafters.
However, our abiding memory is of the sheer luxury and comfort of Rafters and the peace and relaxation it offers.
Big Blue diving and eco water trips and sports is 150 yards from the house. Nautica sports for wake boarding, skiing and other wayer sports is 30 yards from the house. Leeward Marina is 200 yards from the house with bar and cafe.
