About Beth Sulak

Larry is a professor of physics at a leading Boston university and researcher, who has been looking for the Higgs particle for all of his 40-year career. On July 4, 2012, they announced that the Higgs had been found! Beth is enjoying her third career -- in wine -- after two earlier ones as a professional writer and as a marketing manager in a global electronics firm. Both physics and wine bring us often to France where we have been lucky to live in Paris, Provence, and the Pays de Gex. We enjoy French language and culture, wines from around the world, and travel, recently on safari to Botswana and Zimbabwe and to Brazil. Villa Camilla has been a source of much pleasure over the years. We hope you'll come to Villa Camilla to enjoy this unique spot in the TCIs.

Why Beth Sulak chose Providenciales - Provo

it all came down to location: 325' of beachfront on Grace Bay Beach, arguably the best beach in the world, as well as proximity to the islands most popular snorkeling spot and to all the island's many wonderful restaurants, water activities, nightlife and other adventures.

What makes this apartment 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 Grace Bay Beach with the most popular snorkeling just next door. The villa is set among 6 acres of 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 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. Each night at sunset you'll find us up on the deck marveling at the beautiful, ever changing sky while sipping our favorite rum punch. Be sure to ask for the recipe!

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 5-10 minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The views, breathtaking. The people, friendly and helpful. The island, easy to navigate and full of wildlife. The overall experience that we had here on Turks & Caicos was nothing short of unforgetable. We spendt the majority of our time relaxing by the pool soaking up the sun. By night, we explored different bars and with "Somewhere" within walking distance of the villa, it soon became our go-to spot, not to mention their conch cevich. Renting snorkeling geat is easiest at the dibe shop next door at Coral Gardens. We did a lot of grocery shopping at the IGA right off the highway until we found the gourmet IGA, which we preferred. The fish fry on Thursday didn't peak our inteest; we went but soon found ourselves heading back to the villa. Our favorite part was how secluded we were from the rest of the guests at the surrounding resorts.

Can't Wait to Return!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that we deeply enjoyed our stay last week at your guesthouse villa. My wife was in tears when we left. We will definitely be back in the future as we want our daughters to experience the island. I find myself now desiring to go nowhere in the Caribbean but Provo - the island has perfect weather, water, sand, people and relaxing feel.You are very blessed to have the property you have, thank you for allowing us to share your paradise.

Villa Camilla

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Villa Camilla. We felt very safe with the gates and felt so secluded on the private property. It was nice having a little pool to hang at when it was a bit too windy on the beach. Short walk down to the beach and Coral Gardens (snorkeling) we didn't receive a mid week cleaning or fresh beach towels and had to ask for fresh bath towels several days in, but other than that, it's a fantastic place to stay! Great location, right next door to Somewhere Cafe, beach was quiet. Had a lot in the kitchen to use, as well as a small cooler for the beach. We would definitely recommend and go back!

A beautiful oasis

  • 4 of 5

Villa Camilla Guest House is a wonderful, quiet, little spot tucked away amidst the busy island life of Provo.

The listing did accurately portray the unique ambiance of a "quite place away" -

The property was clean and well-maintained - the local staff was very helpful -

I would definitely recommend Villa Camilla to my friends -

I biked every morning and rested in the afternoon sun on the "backyard" beach -

There are many wonderful restaurants nearby in a variety of price ranges -

I had a fabulous week at Villa Camilla Guest House

away from the resorts

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 nights at Villa Camilla. The location is a perfect match for someone looking for the best combination of seclusion and of access to tourist activities, dining, and shopping. Between the good snorkeling steps from the house and the grand view from the balcony, we found staying in kept us plenty occupied. Other days we went out to explore the island. We made a day of Middle Caicos, which I highly recommend. Really no need to involve a tour company for Middle. We just rented a car and used the map to get around, which was very easy. The kitchen is sufficiently stocked with all cooking utensils needed. Take note that there is not a spice to be found...not even salt and pepper. I must say I was a bit worried about security after reading another review and with so much emphasis being placed on securing the premises with guards and alarms, but we always felt quite safe.

Owner's Response: We so enjoyed meeting you and Donald and sharing a rum punch with you on the main house deck while watching one of Provo's magnificent sunsets! As we discussed, Villa Camilla's security has been significantly updated and is arguably one of the best on the island — as long as guests alarm it— including gated car and pedestrian entrances and a living fence of Spanish bayonet plants and a state-of-the-art alarm system that includes deck alarms.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in the upper level of the guest cottage at Villa Camilla. The location is fantastic, effectively on a private stretch of Grace Bay beach to one side of all the resorts. Clean, simple but well appointed, and with incredible all day all night cross breezes - never needed the AC. We cooked in and had everything we needed, and went out and found great restaurants nearby. (Tiki Hut and Da Conch Shack were old favourites, but new discoveries included Somewhere, Mis Amigos and Bugaloos.) We were a little worried about sharing the guest cottage with the downstairs apartment, but the spaces are separate enough for it to feel private. The owners included a really well thought out welcome package of directions and recommendations, and the property management folks were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely and secluded

  • 5 of 5

Villa Camilla is lovely, quiet and secluded. It is a private oasis in the middle of the more populated area of Grace Bay Beach....allowing for proximity to restaurants and stores. Not fancy or ostentatious but clean, nice and everything you need! A short walk out your door brings you to your own beach with gorgeous soft white sand and magnificent clear water! The snorkeling is easy on the reef right off the beach but not quite as wonderful as we had hoped. Big Blue was wonderful for Kayak and biking trips. Provo Ponies horses are well behaved and very beginner safe (advanced riders can canter if they want). We thoroughly enjoyed our week! Thanks to Larry and Beth for their hospitality!

SUP (Stand-up Paddle Boarding). Provo named one of 3 best places in the world by pro windsurfer, Dave Kalama: 'I've been all over the world, and one place I really like for SUP is the TCI. The water is really clear, and the reefs are very alive. You'll see stingrays and all kinds of fish. The island has trade winds, so you can do downwind paddling. It has mangroves, so you can get protection from the wind to do flat-water paddling. It's a really versatile area.'

There's also: Beach walking/jogging, Kiting, Helicopter Tours, Private Boat Charters, Glow Worm Tours, Jet Skies, Star Gazing, Sunset Watching, The Green Flash!
