Overview

Long Bay Hills Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Suite - sleeps 3

Featured in Conde Nast “Brides” Nov 2011 issue on best places for honeymoons in the Caribbean!

This is a large and elegant garden view suite directly on the beach. It is situated in Long Bay, a quiet and undeveloped area with miles of open white sand beach and sparkling clear turquoise water. It is ideal for people who want to be close to nature and seek peace, quiet and natural beauty.

The suite sits on a large piece of land and is nestled amongst the lush native bush and jungle. The beach is almost empty with only an occasional person out for a stroll or the daily horses going by.

The suite is luxuriously outfitted with beautiful furniture, granite and marble tile and high-end appliances. The suit is in a brand new Villa and completely modern with full amenities including dishwasher, Internet, and cable TV. The Ocean view suite has a stunning view over the jungle canopy to the sea, and the garden view you are surrounded by lush and beautiful nature. There is almost always a fresh breeze.

Additional facility notes: Though situated in a natural and undeveloped area, we are just a 5-minute drive to the other side of the island, where you can find the upscale shops and restaurants of Grace Bay Beach.

A Kite boarders Paradise: Villa Wyakha is on the main kite boarding beach of Provo with great winds and warm, shallow and safe waters. It’s a great place to learn kite boarding, or if you're already a kite boarder, you'll love the variety of waters available here. We are ideally setup for kiting with compressed air on the beach (no hand pumping!), two self-launch/landing pads so you can easily kite on your own, and a large sandy setup area.

The rates listed are for the Garden View unit. Below them in the notes section of the rates page are the Ocean View unit rates.

About Ritama Davidson

We are international seminar leaders who were looking for a place to recharge. We looked all over the world and when we found Long Bay we knew that this was one of the most beautiful places we had ever been. We have been here now 18 years and it only gets more precious to us. There is something about the purity of nature, the simplicity, as well as the kiteboarding.

Ritama Davidson purchased this villa in 2012

Why Ritama Davidson chose Providenciales - Provo

Welcome to Esencia

Esencia is a quiet beachfront vacation facility directly on Long Bay especially setup for kiters. We have compressed air, self-launch and large Door loaner boards.

We are on the nicest stretch of beach, wide and clean with the right depth of waters here. And for your non-kiting family they can relax in the shade under our beautiful Coconut palms and in the comfortable Tiki huts with chaise lounges, chairs, beach umbrellas and hammocks.

The lush vegetation is wild and natural; you feel in the midst of undisturbed jungle. Yet we are a first class resort with full amenities including high end design and construction, 3 pools, hot tub and fitness center. Here at Esencia you are ‘roughing it in style’. www.villaesencia.com

Within this natural beauty and simplicity Esencia is a first class resort property with all the amenities including high end design and construction, 3 pools, hot tub and fitness center. Here at Esencia you are ‘roughing it in style’.

What makes this villa unique

Featured in Conde Nast “Brides” Nov 2011 issue on best places for honeymoons in the Caribbean!

Esencia is a quiet and secluded beachfront vacation resort directly on the pristine white-sands of Long Bay Beach, Providenciales, in the Turks and Caicos islands.

We are located on the most beautiful stretch of Long Bay. The beach here is wide with powdery white sands and beautiful turquoise shallow waters. The stately Coconut palms give shade and privacy, and tucked amongst them are comfortable Tiki huts with chaise lounges and chairs, along with beach umbrellas and hammocks.

This 2.25 acre property is natural and lush. The vegetation is almost completely natural and the pathways curve with the flow of the land, giving you the feeling of being in virgin jungle. Everything we’ve built goes with nature rather than imposes on her.

There is a silence and serenity here. The gentle breezes that blow most of the year round, coupled with the sound of the waves breaking on the shore and the feeling of undisturbed nature, make Esencia deeply recharging for body and soul.

We have only four buildings and ten vacation suites, so we cater to only a small group of people. Everything is built for privacy. Unless you choose you rarely see the other guests.

Long Bay has been rated the top destination in the world for learning to Kiteboard, and we are perfectly situated here on the beach for both beginner and advanced kiters. We have compressed air on the beach, self-launch and landing posts, loaner boards, particularly the large doors for low wind conditions, and kite and gear storage.

We cater to both ‘pure’ vacationers who just want to get away and relax as well as the more adventurous kiter

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Kelly and I spent 7 days here when we first got to Turks. It is a meticulous property, well maintained and with all the modern conveniences of home. We explored the Island from end to end, from beach to beach, and even learned to kite surf with Big Blue at The Shore Club, 1km up the beach. The beach and the amenities on the beach at this VRBO were fabulous, and the kite surfing is amazing. Long Bay beach is a great beach to walk or run up and down, and is much less tourist like than Grace bay. Very relaxing and still only a 5 min car ride to Grace bay area and shops.

This place is perfect for people who want to get away from tourists, for Kite surfers, sun bathers and kids, the water is shallow and incredible. I swam up to Shore Club and back a couple of times when the Kiters were down. Snorkeling is better on the Leeward side of the island. It is the windward side of the Island and can get blustery at times, but that is why it is attractive to kiters. The owners were very friendly, and helpful with great recommendations for things to explore while on Provo.

The roads are not all paved leading too and from Villa Escencia, but that keeps many people away.

Thank you

Amazingly beautiful perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about our stay. Ritama received us when we arrived to an immaculate garden unit just a short walk among palm trees to the beach. The pool and hot tub are right by the apartments and are a wonderful way to transition back to your "home" after the sand and breeze.

As a 230lb kiteboarder, I had never used a "door" board like Kabir's, and I was impressed at the how well these work when the wind is lighter. I took a "cruise" by kiteboarding on it about 10 miles north to the next island with a 17m kite, it was like being on a living room chair, enjoying the scenery! I was able to take breaks during this ride and stand on the sand bottom, knee to chest deep the whole time! My wife and 10 year old started learning here too, I doubt there is more than a handful of comparable places like this to learn kiteboarding on the whole planet...

You can come and stay here with no reservations that you will enjoy and have no worries about anything.

Perfection in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Escencia this Feb. and absolutely loved it. Usually we stay at private homes, this was our first time staying in a shared area, so initially we were hesitant about privacy. But, it was never an issue! We had a garden level Villa and with the way the entries were set up you would have thought we were completely alone. Hardly anyone ever used the pool or the hot tub, so we almost always had them to ourselves.

The grounds are clean, lush and beautiful! The photos of the beach do not do it justice!!! We walked out and were completely in awe that we were spending a week on beach. There was no need to leave. Even when we did travel to other beaches, we would inevitably come back to Villa Escencia. It was peaceful and relaxing, there never seemed to be anyone on the beach, except for the kite-boarders and other guests. (Which we loved meeting, always fun to meet and hear where everyone was from!)

We would 100% recommend this Villa to anyone and hope to come back with friends sometime! We are already missing their sweet pups, Godji and Seven.

PARADISE!! Beautiful lush villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week. I picked it cause it seemed very beautiful according to the pictures. Let say pictures dont do any justice for paradise. Upon arriving we buzzed in at the front security gate which was opened to let us in once we told them who we were. Ritama and Kabir came and greeted us at our villa and gave us a walk thru. They were very pleasant and thorough with everything we wanted to know and needed.

The grounds were beautiful and clean. You were a short walk thru the lush pathway to paradise. Out on the beach you had many chairs with a cabana and a hammock for your use. They have paddle boards and kayaks included to use as well. The ocean was BEAUTIFUL!! Crystal clear water that is knee deep to waste deep depending on the tide for a LONG way out. You can see kite boarders out there all day long.

When you came back in from the ocean there was a shower by the pool you can rinse off in. There are also bathrooms there as well to use. The salt water pool and hottub were both great!

The villa was very clean and had all the amenities you really need. Outdoor propane grill(we used a lot), Fridge, coffee maker, blender, electric cooktop, microwave, convection oven, and dishwasher. Also had a stacked washer and dryer. Also have a safe for your important items. The bedroom is the only place that had AC and it works well. We only used it at night before bed. Electric here is very expensive so turn it off if your not using. Abuse it and leave it running all day long and you will probably have to pay.

They have two dogs running around who at first will bark at you to alert the owners of strangers. Once they know you they are very friendly. The dogs were Seven and Gogi we loved the dogs cause they would just come and sit with us.

Location is great and closeby to groceries and restaurant.

We spoke to the owners several times as we ran in to them during their walks. Had great conversations with them. By the end of the trip we felt that they weren't only the landlords we rented from but also gained new friends. We hope to keep in contact with them and come back here again for sure.

Thanks for everything and hope to see you soon!

Amazing Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Immediately as we arrive relaxation sets in as we are surrounded by all that nature has to offer. We are then greeted by the owners who are very inviting and give us a complete tour of the property with advice on the many great things to do on the island. As we get to the second floor unit we are amazed at the cleanliness and relaxing feel but not before stepping onto the balcony and taking in great views of the landscape and the oceans color.

During our weeks stay we enjoyed the privacy of the secluded pool and hot tub, the cabanas with hammocks on the beach, testing out our skills with kayaks and stand up paddle boards which are just waiting to be used in the amazing waters while observing kites flying in the distance. The owners were extremely friendly and gladly offered assistance when asked information related to the island which was very useful considering it was our first trip to paradise. Thanks Turks and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Provo. I will just second all the previous excellent reviews. I would certainly pay extra for the upper floor units if they are available. We had a lower unit which suited our needs but a view of Long Bay beach would have been even nicer. We rented a car and spent 3 days on Grace Bay snorkeling, a day at Taylor Bay and a day at Chalk Sound kayaking. We enjoyed having the pool and hot tub very much and all the nice seating and shaded palapas on Long Bay.

Ritama and Kabir are perfect hosts-always there if you need them. They are both inspiring people and I enjoyed talking to them and also enjoyed their dogs, Seven and Gogi.
