Overview

Turks & Caicos Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa on the Beach, Penthouse Suite, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Crystal Sands Villa on Sapodilla Bay is unbelievable! The Villa's setting is amazing!!! This southernmost beach on Providenciales is a cove protected from the wind by the surrounding points. It offers shelter for sailboats, many of which moor just off the shore, creating the most picturesque view imaginable. The water is crystal clear. Its aqua tones bounce off the summer clouds and continually display an aura of colors. The beach’s crystal sands sparkle in tranquillity! Sunsets are indescribable. Bring your camera. You will want to capture your friends and family in this magnificent setting!

Crystal Sands Villa is one 4 bedroom villa which has two 2 independent bedroom suites which can be rented together or separately. Each of the four bedrooms has a direct view of the beach! The rooms are large, open and airy.

This listing is for our 2 bedroom Penthouse Suite. If you would like to rent our Beach Level Suite, view VRBO listing 845286. If you would like to rent 4 bedooms, view Homeaway listing 246995.

Each of Crystal Sands Villa's suites is Non-Smoking and has two master suites with king beds and en-suite baths. (One king is convertible to two twins.) Each master suite has a direct view of the beach! The rooms are large, open, and airy.

Vacation comfort is a given, with the villa’s large living area with extra sofa bed and well planned baths, with large vanities, large walk-in showers, and fabulous storage! The balcony is magnificently 50 foot long and it is covered! Although tropical breezes keep the villa pleasant, air conditioning is available at extra charge for those who must have it!

The Amenities description herein refers to one of our two bedrooms suites, the Penthouse Suite. The second suite is identical, so the guests who elect to rent the Entire Villa will have two of everything mentioned.

Just a short walk to the east, on Sapodilla Hill, is the famous site at which shipwrecked sailors carved their names in stones. These stones still survive. The site is such a national treasure that replicas of some of the carvings have been made and put on display at the airport! Here, one can see the real thing. Make it a point to include this walk while you are here.

Providenciales is one of the most fabulous vacation spots in the Caribbean today! It is located about 575 miles southeast of Miami, right next to the Bahamas. Relatively unspoiled, it is the island of choice for a host of sunny, island activities. It is one of the world’s top ten scuba diving destinations and is considered to have one of the best golf courses in the Caribbean.

Other activities include:

One of the world’s top ten dive destinations * One of the best golf courses in the Caribbean * Diving * Fishing * Golf * Sailing * Parasailing * Horseback riding * Snorkeling * Swimming * Sunning * Hiking * Walking * Collecting Shells * Boating * Tennis * Very fine dining * Relaxing * Water skiing * Wind surfing * Visiting adjacent cays (pronounced keys) * Watching fabulous sunsets * Glo worm excursions * Miniature golf * Conch farm tours * World Class restaurants * Scenic drives * Tours of Ruins * Beachcombing * Deep Sea fishing * Jet Skiing * Pier fishing * Sight seeing * Spa treatments * Channel fishing * Whale watching

About Dana & Scott

Scott and Dana Jurak have been coming to Provo since 2002 and they have lived here for almost the entire time. They own and operate Crystal Sands Villa, Coconut Beach Villa and Grace Bay Townhomes. Both feel that they have never had a better job experience!

Dana & Scott purchased this villa in 2004

Why Dana & Scott chose Turks & Caicos

After having visited many, many Caribbean islands, we fell in love! We had never seen such sugary sand and such crystal clear water! We knew we had to find a way to make it our home. Having a vacation villa is the perfect solution! We LOVE our guests and we love the happy stories that abound!

What makes this villa unique

Crystal Sands Villa is on one of the most spectacular beaches imaginable, Sapodilla Bay Beach, nick named The Children's Beach! It is one of the few villas that is organized as a duplex. Groups of adult friends find they all have equivalent spaces, right on the beach. Multi-generational families find that they can spend time with their families, yet still have some private space. This beach at Sapodilla Bay is unparallelled!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Guestbook: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful seaside villa....and the only downside was that our week here went by so quickly. I think the highlight on this vacation was the sunset cruise on Sail Beluga. The captain and first mate were awesome and the snorkeling fantastic! Thanks for everything.

Paradise Once Again Visited......

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time at Crystal Sands Villa and God willing it won't be our last.

Scott and Dana are fabulous owners and all of their properties are pristine and provide every convenience one could want or need. They are direct hands on owners, so there isn't some needless agency handling your booking and gouging you with a fee for them doing nothing.

Scott and Dana are available 24/7/365 for their guests and their pride in ownership evidences itself at every and every one of their properties

Crystal Sands Villa will allow you to experience the Caribbean the way it should be experienced, on Island Time.........Enjoy

This Villa is really on the BEACH

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time. The sunsets are fantastic! We saw turtles and Southern rays swimming in the area. The villa is well maintained and had everything we needed. Las Brisas, best restaurant on the Island is a short walk from the villa.

Best Villa location on Provo

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Dana and Scott's villa. Thank you Dana and Scott! The landscaping was beautiful and well maintained; the kitchen well appointed. The large Weber grill on the porch was a plus. We stayed in the bottom villa and ate breakfast outside every am and loved every minute due to the wonderful view. We had virtually no bugs- our week was quite breezy, which made Sapodilla bay beach the best spot on the island- no currents and just lapping waves. Grace Bay, however, can be rough and snorkeling on Smith's reef can be challenging when the wind is blowing.

Everyone in our small group, which consisted of friends and family, unanimously agreed that we picked the best location on the island- with a rental car, it was convenient to everything-- and, in our biased opinion, Crystal Sands Villa has the best location on Sapodilla Bay Beach. The villa is so close to the water, that one doesn't have to haul everything down to the beach as you may have to do at a condo on Grace Bay. Las Brisas across the street has great food when you don't feel like cooking and don't feel like driving. The Graceway supermarkets have everything one needs- (twice the US prices) and the hours of operation are very convenient. Don't miss Mr. Groupers for curried anything- the grouper and conch were great, as was the Conch Burger. Loved Da Conch Shack too, as well as Mango reef for brunch/lunch. Great ambience at Coco Bistro and food. For some authentic jerk chicken and ribs, try Chinson's and definitely meet the owner, Mr. Hutchinson and his son Michael- they are delightful.

Additionally, we so enjoyed talking with Dana and Scott about life in the Turks and Caicos. Dana told us that Hurricane Joaquin hit the Turks and Caicos as a Cat 5 in the Fall of 2015-- and it stripped the trees on Provo virtually clean-we can tell you that one would never know- the property is once again surrounded by lush, beautiful tropical vegetation (we are from Charleston, SC - so we understand all to well the type of damage a hurricane can inflict). Now that we are back home, we all miss that view and first cup of coffee on the porch at Crystal Sands! PS, bring a LED flashlight-- it is fun to walk the beach at night and look for stingrays, crabs, fish, etc in the water. And- last but not least, this is the second time I have booked a vacation home via VRBO in the southern Atlantic/Caribbean region and the reviews generally are right on the money. VRBO has been terrific so far.

Another Incredible Week At Crystal Sands Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in the penthouse at Crystal Sands! We rent homes at least twice a year throughout the Carribean and this is one of our favorite places. The home is very nicely kept and has everything we need at our fingrtips.We had a problem with our cable box one day and one phone call to Scott and he was there witin 20 minutes.The island cable didnt have a replacement box ready however Scott brought one from his own home. Thats the type of service and attention you recieve from Scott and Dayna. The beach is just as pictured quiet and beautiful. I cannot say enough about this island and this home and its location.Thanks Again Dayna and Scott for the use of your lovely hope. Well see you again hopefully soon .Dave and Doreen

Amazing week on Sapodilla Bay

  • 5 of 5

My family (w/ boys ages 14 & 12) spent a fabulous spring break at Crystal Sands! We couldn't have asked for a better location: calm, gorgeous water, sugar white sand steps from the house and a family atmosphere on the bay. We were directly on the beach! This is one reason we chose this location. No hauling beach stuff around each day. All beaches on the island are public but we never felt it was over crowded. Many people who came to the beach didn't stay all day. There were plenty of times where the beach had very few people on it even during spring break. The water was so warm that we swam and floated in the bay (we used the floats that they provided at the villa). We actually never used the pool. The ocean was just too inviting! We did check out many of the other beaches on the island. However, we never stayed because Sapodilla Bay beach was everything we wanted! Umbrellas provided for when you need a break from the sun. Enjoyed the hammocks too. We also saw several stingrays and sea turtles in the bay. The sunsets at the villa were AMAZING!

The villa has everything you'll need for the week. We ate breakfast and lunch in and had dinner out. We did pack a carry-on suitcase of food. The prices in Turks & Caicos are very expensive! We were happy to know that ahead of time. Toilet paper, paper towels and detergents are provided to get you started. You may need more while you're there and that's easy to pack. The IGA grocery store is very Americanized and has everything you need. We liked the Wine Cellar to buy our alcoholic beverages although you can get them at IGA too. There were even 2 coolers & ice packs at the villa too.

We took a fun snorkel trip with Caicos Dreams. It was $89/person. It was well worth the money! We saw some amazing reefs and fish. Our boat had a huge slide off the second story which was a blast for adults and kids alike. Lunch was served with unlimited pop, beer and rum punch. All snorkel equipment was provided. We got to check out Iguana Island too. We even had a dance party on deck. So much fun! No need to book prior to arrival.

Some of our favorite places to eat on the island were Las Brisas (right by the villa), Da Conch Shack, Bugaloos, Sharkbite, Dan Buoys and Greenbean Cafe (did a take out dinner and a breakfast there). For dessert, you definitely need to try Melt (gourmet sundaes) and Island Scoop. They are owned by the same people and make all their own ice cream. Overall, we LOVED Crystal Sands! We'll be back!
