Terry and Gul Jenkins live in London and discovered the idyllic islands of Turks and Caicos after traveling extensively throughout the Caribbean. They instantly fell in love with the island and promised one other that they would return in the future to build their dream home. Now several years later, they have built a beautiful holiday home they would like to share with others.
Terry is one of the UK’s foremost musicians, having worked with the likes of international superstars: Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Sarah Vaughan, Vic Damone, Robert Farnon, Nelson Riddle, James Last Band, Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Stephan Grapelli, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Royal Philharmonic 'pops' Orchestra and BBC TV Come Dancing. He has played in some of the most illustrious and iconic venues worldwide including Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and Caesar's Palace and also has a prolific recording background contributing to over 2,000 tracks. Terry spent over a decade touring with Tom Jones as his drummer and it was during this time that he met Gul in Barbados. They had a whirlwind romance and married in Tom’s hotel suite in Puerto Rico and, appropriately, he was their best man.
Gul started her career as a designer in Europe where she studied and trained after completing a Masters Degree. Her creativity and artistic flair have earned her recognition from a number of design and fashion houses. She later moved to interior design and her meticulous attention to detail is clearly evident throughout the design and décor of Villa Vivace.
Terry and Gul scoured the island to find the perfect location for their dream villa. It's idyllic waterside setting, proximity to the beautiful beaches and fantastic restaurants will ensure you have a vacation to remember for years to come.

Gul, I wanted to reach out to you and say thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. We were so impressed with how beautiful everything was and we are still in awe at all we saw and enjoyed. Julian did a wonderful job in making us very comfortable. The little extras like the beer in the fridge and chips and fruit set the tone for the whole week. He gave us very good information on all our questions and was a true joy to be around. Your recommendations were very high on our list as well. Dive Provo took very good care of us as well as Grace Bay Car rentals.We loved Somewhere's and have many pictures and memories from the whole experience. My family is still talking about our stay and it appears I will be contacting you again for another visit to your beautiful villa. Again, thank you for answering all of our questions and the direct phone call.
Have a wonderful day and I look forward to contacting you again in the near future.
This was our first time visiting Turks and we were very nervous about finding the right Villa. Villa Vivace was just perfect for us. The bedrooms were nice and spacious and I'm very picky about cleaning and this Villa was spotless. We were very impressed. Anytime we had a question we got a very quick response. It was a wonderful visit but Villa Vivace just made it perfect.
This was our seventh time to Turks and Caicos and about or sixth time or seventh at villa vivace. It was our 30th wedding anniversary
When we arrived to the Villa Gul had flowers , Big basket of fruit and a bottle of wine what a beautiful surprise to start our vacation and celebrate 30 years . I have never worked with someone that was so pleasant to deal with
Met every need we had. The house is very clean the ground is well-maintained
This time it was just my husband and I a few years ago we brought her kids and grandkids and had a wonderful time there made lots of beautiful memories that will cherish forever .
It is so nice and quiet at this Villa . I think every time we go back we fall more in love with the island .we hired a private photographer to take pictures of us at Leeward beach which is one of my favorite beaches
The food stores are local enough that you can do with a short drive.
We decided to kind of eat more local this time instead of the hotel restaurants and we were so much more happier doing that Tiki hut is great for lunch or dinner
Great prices to
Say enough about gul ,she is just awesome to work with. So Friendly and understand everything that you're looking for in a vacation
If you're looking totally to disconnect from work I highly recommend this it has everything you need and then some with a beautiful private pool.
I wish I was there now
Gul, thank you once again for allowing us to use your villa
we can't wait to go back again
we have been to quite a few islands but I think Turks is my favorite by far.
the water is breathtaking
I can sit for hours on the beach, which by the way isn't crowded at all
Again looking forward to our next trip
Love nancy and John
We rented Villa Vivace for a first time to the island and it was the perfect island vacation! Gul, the owner was a wonderful source of information prior to the trip with answering questions, giving recommendations, assistance, etc. The villa is gated with total seclusion on the sides with tropical greenery and beautiful bogaainvilleas and the back door poolside to the waterway present the feel of your own private paradise. It is perfectly located in walking distance to the beach and just 2 blocks from Blue Haven Marina. Perfect to walk to connect for the sunset cruise, snorkeling excursions, and kite boarding adventures. The property management company representative, Faye was very kind and helpful. The home is fully with amenities and leaves nothing to be desired. This island home is the perfect getaway where the people and island are as sweet as sugar, the sand is soft as flour, and the water is the clearest most beautiful turquoise blue. Words and pictures can not express how wonderful this island, home and the people are. Thank you Gul for sharing your beautiful home and such a wonderful peace of paradise! Can't wait to return next year!
This is our 4th time staying at Villa Vivace. It is always spotless and well maintained each time we arrive. The location is perfect as there is a market and restaurant walking distance from the Villa. Each time we come back, it feels like our home away from home. Thank you Gul for making the house so welcoming! We will definitely be back.
Best vacation ever.

This House was a Pleasure to stay in. We had 2 adult couples and 2 of our mothers. We arrived at the airport and Julian, the property manager, was there to meet us and take us to the house. When we got to the house, Julian treated us to some fruit and snacks and ice cold beer which was very welcomed at that time and explained all about the house. Gul, your house is VERY accommodating, open floor plan with three great sized bedrooms with baths. Nice kitchen and TV area with everything you need. The outside patio area is what we used the most, from the clean swimming pool to the beautiful views along the canal and the sitting areas outside which are perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Short walk to Blue Haven resort which has a restaurant and 2 outside bars and a beach area. One of the days we went out on a boat and had the boat pick us up right at our back door, so cool.. There is also a market within close walking distance. Plenty of things to do and restaurants nearby. Gul, Thanks again for a memorable stay in the TCI and look forward to returning to your home.
