Overview

Providenciales - Provo Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bed, 3 Bath - Sleeps 6 - Private Property on 6.5 Acres Providenciales

At last, you've discovered a Slice of Paradise perched directly on 325 feet of World Famous Grace Bay Beach. Set amongst more than 6 acres of 25-year-old tropical gardens Camilla on the Beach aka Villa Camilla is one of the largest and last remaining Private BEACHFRONT properties along this 12-mile stretch of Grace Bay. Your back yard is the beach and your neighbours are boutique to high end resorts as well as local eateries and flora.

It is Endless Summer at Camilla on The Beach, sun-filled interiors with splashes of bold turquoise, orange, yellow and blue Caribbean colours throughout. Slow your pace, indulge your dreams and float in crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Turks and Caicos islands. One of the largest coral reef that begins to the left is loaded with colourful tropical fish, turtles, rays, beautiful coral and sponges. Don your mask and snorkel in glorious Princess Alexandra Marine Park.

The Villa boasts 3 spacious appointed bedrooms. Bedroom #1 has a four piece king size bed, en suite bathroom, TV, AC, ceiling fan, a wall of sliding glass doors towards the pool and a pool and garden view. Bedroom #2 has two twin beds that can also be made up as a king bed, a wall of sliding glass doors with a garden view, AC, ceiling fan and en suite bathroom. Bedroom #3 has two twin beds that can also be made up as a king, AC, ceiling fan and en suite bathroom with sliding doors to the private deck and garden. Crib rentals are available for families with young children.

For additional sleeping, also consider renting one or both of Camilla's Beach Houses which have one bedroom/one bath units that sleep 2 to 4.. See VRBO property #335410

A wrought iron spiral staircase leads to the spacious second story living room, dining room, kitchen and decks. The design of the home has the Entertainment area on the Upper floor overlooking the ocean while all the bedrooms are on the Pool level. On reaching the top of the staircase, you cannot help but gasp at the beautiful view. Khaki coloured sea grass dots low rolling dunes accented by a wide, brilliantly white -sand beach.

If you would like to experience having your own private chef take care of you while you are on holidays or to prepare a meal, please ask the property manager about the chefs' contact information. This expense is not included in the rental price.

Pool and Beach: Totally Private and Exclusive to the Main House only! A Solar Heated Pool 30 ft long is nestled in the gardens and sits between the Villa and the Beach, giving full privacy from beach goers. The majestic mahogany trees and coconut palms provide some shade for sunbathing and relaxing. There is a shallow section of the pool perfect for wading.

Air conditioning: Though the trade winds and ceiling fans typically keep the villa at a comfortable temperature, air conditioning is available in each of the bedrooms. To encourage conservation, air conditioning is metered separately and charged back to guests at prevailing electricity rates.

About Beth and Larry Sulak

We first came to TCI in February, 1985 just after the first road was built from the airport to the newly opened Club Med. Up until then, we'd always felt that there were so many beautiful Caribbean islands that there was no reason ever go to the same island twice. Providenciales changed all that! By the end of our visit, we were already planning a return in June. It was then that we realized that we had to own a piece of this beautiful island. Nowhere had we seen such beautiful turquoise water, sand as fine as sugar, or such friendly people. These same things have kept us returning for more than 25 years!

Why Beth and Larry Sulak chose Providenciales - Provo

Location on 325 feet of Beachfront, Privacy, Large property 6 acres, now close to amenities dining, shopping, bars, not so 25 yrs ago :)

Though purchased in 1990 we have upgraded over the years making it a charming beachfront retreat, not too many frills but just enough.

What makes this villa unique

We love the space and privacy that Villa Camilla gives us as well as the short walk -- 1 minute -- across our property to the beach with the best snorkeling just next door. The villa is set among 6 acres of mature tropical gardens and we have 325' of beachfront at our doorstep! We always feel that the stretch of beach in front of Villa Camilla is reserved only for us and for guests at Villa Camilla, even though all beaches on Provo are public.

We love wandering through the garden seeing what's in bloom at the moment-- wild orchids, beach plum, cactuses, different palms. And because of the greenery around us, we're a magnet for birds, including humming birds.

Breakfast and lunch on the deck are wonderful, but nothing compares to watching the sunset from the west desk with rum punch in hand! Then if we're not cooking that night, it's off to one of Provo's many excellent restaurants, none more than a 5 to 10-minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of five had a great time! This is our 4th trip to TCI. The location is amazing — right on Grace Bay and so close to wonderful snorkeling spots! That helped to meet the needs of my husband (loves to snorkel), my kids (love the sand and swimming AND THE POOL), and me (who would be pretty happy anywhere on TCI). Was the house as updated as other places we have stayed? no. Were the views amazing? Yes! Did it allow us to be here as a family? Yes! We would definitely come back! Thanks so much for the help with the minor house issues! Thanks so much for the great stay and opportunity to be here!

Amazing value for a private beach house

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bedroom with en-suite bathrooms, super high ceilings, ceiling fans and windows galore was perfect for the 4 of us. We were looking for a week of relaxation and that's exactly what we got. Even better, we didn't need the air conditioning and were able to enjoy beautiful breezes coming through the house while we hung out or slept. This is a beautifully decorated home with a fully stocked kitchen, upstairs deck with ocean sunset view, private swimming pool, no noise, private path to the beach and best of all, completely secure and safe. Thank you for an amazing week. You've spoiled us for future rentals!

Turquoise gem

  • 5 of 5

Villa Camilla is located on the most beautiful stretch of the most gorgeous beach in the world, far down from any large hotels. The water color is intense turquoise. The villa takes its cue from the water and uses the same color throughout. It is vibrant, warm and comfortable. The grounds are lush; the bedrooms quite adequate and nicely decorated with touches of island art. Perfect for a family or two or three couples who like the convenience of a well-equipped kitchen rather than eating always in a hotel or restaurant for every meal.

Great place for a relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent five great nights with another couple at Villa Camilla last month. This was a return trip to Provo for the two of us, and the first time for our friends. Villa Camilla was the perfect place for our vacation.

The villa has a fantastic location. We had stayed previously at the Gansevoort, so we were familiar with this side of Grace Bay. You are walking distance to Somewhere Cafe and Lounge, which has good, reasonably priced food, good drinks, and a fun vibe. You can also easily walk to the restaurants at Beach House and the Gansevoort, if you don't feel like cooking (We had plans to cook at least a couple of nights, but ended up eating out).

The pool at Villa Camilla is perfect for a few people, and there's plenty of shade and lounge-chairs if you need to get out of the sun at the beach. It's an easy stroll to the beach through a private path, and if you are doing any aquatic activities, the boats will pick you up on the beach right out front.

As for the house itself, it has everything you need. The bedrooms are downstairs, and the living areas upstairs. There's a nice deck off the kitchen for eating outside and enjoying the views of the beautiful ocean. There's no AC upstairs, but opening the 4 sliding doors keeps it cool enough (at least in November).

If you want to spend time at the beach, you might want to talk up some of the surrounding properties. We were able to use the beach chairs at one of the hotels, and the guys working there took us out on Hobie cats for a sail.

When we were there, they were removing the rubble from a demolished property next door. The workers didn't usually work all day, but had a penchant for coming at 6:45 or 7:00 in the morning. The bedroom AC units lessened the noise, but it was still loud enough to wake us up. There's nothing Beth and Larry could do about it, but they were generous anyway in compensating us for the AC use and gave us a gift card to the IGA.

Our interactions on the island with Rose, the property manager, were fantastic. She was waiting for us on arrival, and arrived to check us out right when we needed her so we could get to the airport on time. When we had questions in the evening, she responded.

We hope to get back to Provo soon, and will definitely look first to stay at Villa Camilla.

Owner's Response: Cassie, So glad you were pleaed with your stay at Villa Camilla! Yes, September is perhaps the hottest month of the year. Note that the bedrooms are air-conditioned and every room has a ceiling fan as well as lots of ventilation. Otherwise, for heat relief jump in the pool or ocean!

Providenciales (often Provo locally is an island in the northwest Caicos Islands, part of the Turks and Caicos Islands, a British Overseas Territory. The island has an area of 98 km2 (38 sq mi) and a 2012 Census population of 23,769. Providenciales is the largest island in population, the third largest in area, and is home to a large majority of the population of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The island is served by the Providenciales International Airport. Providenciales was ranked the best beach destination in the world by TripAdvisor in 2011.

Located in an eastern crook of Providenciales, Grace Bay has 12 miles of soft ashen sand and open crystalline water to placate sunbathers. There's little shade, so come early in the morning to get your choice of umbrellas. Some of the island's most well-liked restaurants are sheltered along Grace's shore, as are the most popular hotels.

Recent travelers recommend snorkeling at Bight Reef. Snorkel equipment can be rented off the beach at the Coral Gardens resort or arrange a day sail or tour. Grace Bay is a public beach that's open all hours of the day, every day of the week.
