Caribbaway is owned by Colin and Christina Wilburn. They own a semiconductor business in the UK and travel extensively on business to attend Physics conferences throughout the World.
Owner/manager purchased this house in 1998
They chose to buy on Long Bay 16 years ago after seeing a small advertisement in 'The Sunday Times' advertising beach front land for sale in the British West Indies. Colin had a long weekend spare in between business commitments in the US and so took a plane from Miami to Providenciales to find out a little more about it. The plot was dense undergrowth but was right on the beach and Colin was excited by the adventure that it represented. It took a few years and initially both Colin and Christina camped in the grounds until the house was ready (very brave considering the mosquitos and also the wild dogs which roamed the Island at the time) but now they have a truly beautiful home to escape to and share with family and friends. They try to offer a home from home experience to rental guests and the house enables guests to have fun and relax in the comfort of their own home and they hope that guests embrace the Island lifestyle and truly enjoy their time at Caribbaway.
The house is spacious and private and the views from the decks and the gazebos which graduate from the house down to the sand are second to none. The gentle breeze of the trade winds keep the humidity comfortable at all times of the day and watching the sun rise in the mornings across the sea and then set in the evenings over the greenery of the Island is breathtaking.
We have just come from the villa and like it very much. Nadio is a
talented architect-- the house is unique, distinctive, and comfortable.
We will certainly be booking next December
We just returned home from Long Bay last night and thoroughly enjoyed our visit and especially this home. We rent homes throughout the Caribbean and really enjoyed the location and amenities of this home. It was in a great location - it was convenient to get to the market and restaurants but very quiet on the beach. Perfect! The house was clean, well maintained, perfect size for 6 of us (we rented one annex as well) and the beach was breathtaking. We loved having the kitty and potcake there as well - they were very friendly. The little extras like the car, coolers and plenty of towels and beach chairs was appreciated. The entire transaction from booking the home to the airport arrival to departure was handled smoothly - thank you Nadio and Amanda! The Wifi and cable were a nice to have in the evenings as well - especially since we visited during March Madness. Weather could not have been more perfect. There were so many beautiful places on the island to visit, but it was nice to come back to our home which we hope to visit again!
Great kiting beach. No mosquitos, The house car was very nice. It was great to have Nadio help with the airport pick up and departure.
This was an amazing house for our family vacation, traveling with my own family as well as three of my siblings and their families, for a total of 8 adults with 6 children ages 6 and under. As any of you parents out there know, vacations change with kids. However, this is the perfect house with young children. The proximity to the beach allows you easily to go in and out, to work around naps and kids' crazy demands. The water is so shallow for so long, that the kids loved just running around and playing in the water. We rarely saw neighbors, so it was easy to keep an eye on kids even when they were running far down the beach. On the odd day where wind really kicked up, pleasant to sit in jacuzzi and listen to the beach. FYI they also had playpen, cot, and small couches in the annexes that can be used for sleeping tots. Would recommend another car for ease traveling around the island, although we managed just making multiple trips with the car included and occasional cab rides. Kooki is the cat included with the villa, and allowed my daughter to give multiple hugs without issue.
This villa was exactly what we wanted for our wedding. The layout of the house is perfect, very spacious and private. The beach and view is incredible! We did some kayaking, snorkelling and of course swimming. Even with the strong winds some days the waves weren't crashing on shore like other beaches. We loved that you could swim a fair distance before getting really deep. Our wedding day was perfect! Went swimming in the morning and took our time getting ready for our nuptials. Went to the Bay Bistro for our reception and the meal was incredible, 3 lobster tails, potatoes and vegetables for $39 U.S., definitely make it out to that restaurant. We didn't eat out a lot but you have to try the Conch Shack and Danny Buoys. The grocery stores are great and have everything you need. The prices are high but it all depended on what you bought. The vehicle was great as you will definitely need one. We took a drive to other parts of the island and Long Bay is the place to be!! Our friends were just as thrilled as we were with our stay. Our entire week was incredible and can't wait to return!! Thanks to Amanda and Nadio for everything and the owners Colin and Christina. Hope you enjoyed the rest of our wedding cake!!
Loved the location, the beach, and stunning blue water. There is nothing going on over there, so if looking for action, this is not it. Which was perfect for our group. Everyone could spread out, but great space for family time. Nice having the car at the property, but we were glad to have the extra rental to transport our family of 6. Everyone was great to work with during the process. We miss it already!!
The villa is exactly as advertised. The photos are all good representations of what to expect. The living areas are spacious, and the outdoor areas are amazing. Even the bed in the master bedroom was good-- rare in rental villas. The villa and grounds were clean when we arrived, and everything seems well maintained. There were no neighbours when we were there, so it was very peaceful.
The walk out to the beach and ocean are perfect. Simply walk down the path and straight out into the water for the best swimming area we've ever had on vacation. The water is warmish, the bottom is totally sandy, with only one or two rocks, and the water is shallow but deep enough to swim.
Nadio, the architect and property manager, is terrific, and clearly very proud of his creation.
You must have a car. Don't even think about not having one. We don't go to restaurants, but we can say without hesitation that the Graceway IGA is amazing. Expensive, like everything else on the island, but with an amazing selection of foods of all type. The kitchen is basically well equipped, with one or two omissions. If you don't mind cooking, it is by far the least expensive and most convenient option. You could also get the prepared foods at the IGA and just heat them up.
There is a wonderful cat who seems to basically live at this villa, but it doesn't go into the house. If you stay here, please buy some cat food and feed the cat.
One or two minor complaints:
There are no screens on the doors or windows in the main living area. To get air inside, you have to leave the doors open, which also lets in mosquitoes. I got bitten fiercely inside the house, which is very irritating. I realize that screen doors and windows are the bane of caretakers' existences, because with high use they break and jam, but at the very least, the large main window in the lounge area should have a screen. We travel with mosquito netting, so the bedroom wasn't a problem, but without the netting, I believe it would be.
Please get a toaster oven! A toaster oven is probably even more critical than a microwave. It saves power, too, if you don't have to use the main oven.
Please get a few measuring cups! How odd that there is only one enormous measuring cup.
Please update the microwave. The door is largely broken.
Please get a contemporary Bluray player and connect it with an HDMI cable. It is really inconvenient to have plug and unplug the DVD player and TV box.
