Guestbook comments from the owner

"Home for a month!"

Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We have just returned from a month at Reef Residences and by the end of the

first week - the staff and fellow guests made it truly feel like home. No

request or question went unanswered; every request was actioned. This

property is ideal for those seeking quiet days and nights away from the

throbbing pace and structured activities at the larger resorts. Grace Bay

Beach is so close - and the noontime toddies are delivered to your beach

lounger with a smile!! You make your own agenda for the day! Fitness room,

pool and beach took up a good part of our days.

The staff here - from Leanne (thanks for all the great tips on TCI), to

Verne (thanks for your patience with our questions and the noontime &

afternoon rum punches), to Serge (thanks for the help and your daily

smile!), to Haidee & Shaquille (thanks for your work inside the unit - it

was always spotless), to new Papa Nuan (thanks for your suggestions of

things to do & places to see - just hope you are getting some sleep now!),

and to Mitsy (enjoyed the pedicure and conversation).

The Reef Residence units are well-appointed and allow for ample space for

entertaining, preparing meals, and relaxing in comfort after a day at the

pool / on the beach / shopping.

We hope to return to this property again - and look forward to getting back

our TCI groove! =

Easy Access Just as Pictured Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the week between Christmas and New Year's in a one bedroom condo. It was just as pictured. Very clean, very quite. We had a rental car - plenty of parking even though we only left the property a couple of times because it was so nice and relaxing. Always had plenty of beach/pool towels available. We had one issue with the AC (we turned it off and couldn't get it turned back on - so it was likely our error) and it was immediately addressed. Great location for snorkeling. We were looking for low key with lots of relaxation and this was perfect.

The people are what makes Provo great.

  • 4 of 5

After many trips to Turks & Caicos, this was our first time at reef residences. Booking through home away was simple, many thanks to Leanne. Prince is the best! He’s friendly, helpful, and great knowledge of what’s going on on the island. Can’t wait to go fishing with him. Thanks to Ron for directing me to the brewery to save $7 on a case of beer.

Not fancy but rooms are comfortable & adequate, we stayed in a 1 bed/1ba second floor unit. Perfect for self catering, we had everything we needed, including coffee.

Short walk to the beach, make sure you’re around for the lunch time rum punch. My one critique, it’s time for a new grill! Especially based on how much it was used while we were there, I walked up to be 3rd in the queue one night with 3 people after me. If I wasn’t a pro, I wouldn’t have even been able to light it the first night. New Weber grill is a small investment to satisfy a lot of people.

Dated, needs updating.

  • 3 of 5

Our reef residence villa was situated behind another resort from the Grace Bay beach. This location was convenient for simple snorkeling and beach access, but some updating to the villa is needed. The telephone lines weren't working properly to make local calls, which meant we needed to go to the office to do so. We came home to a puddle in our bedroom only to find the air conditioner was leaking and maintenance needed to fix it. My husband had to fix the air conditioning on multiple occasions after that due to it shorting out. The lock on the sliding glass door was inconsistently working. In addition to the villa, the central pool area and pool itself needs to be re-done.

Other Home Away properties we've stayed at provided travelers with items appropriate to the location, but this place did not. In addition to beach towels, it would have been nice to have access to bicycles, packable cooler, snorkel gear, etc...

Rum punch offered on the beach everyday at noon was a nice touch and the staff was very helpful throughout our stay.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Reef Residences. The staff is very friendly and the grounds and condo are clean. The short walk to the beach was perfect and having beach towels as well as designated beach chairs and umbrellas available to us was a definite plus. We will definitely stay here again.
