Casa Conchiglia (Shell House) is a private three bedroom, three and a half bath Oceanfront home situated on the south shore. Each of the three bedrooms (2 ocean view ) include en-suite bathrooms and flat screen tv's.
The villa is located close to Leeward Marina and only a 5 minute drive to Grace Bay Beach and Grace Bay Road where guests will find dining, groceries and entertainment.
Open the huge glass doors and allow the constant tradewinds to keep you cool. A true indoor/outdoor tropical expierience.
You may choose one of several areas to dine-in; casually around the huge granite island, the formal dining table or 'alfresco' in the covered screened porch.
The high end gourmet kitchen is well equipped with appliances. An Induction/Convection range allows the chef in your group to flourish without feeling stuck in the kitchen.
The living room has an entertainment center which hosts a 65' 3D Flatscreen TV, 3D bluray, Bose stereo with I Pod/Phone dock.
A 12'X24' plunge pool with relaxing lounge chairs is a heavenly way to spend your day in the sun.
Need a change of scenery or less wind? Take the stairs to the lower patio where you can truly escape. Only the sound of the rhythmic waves invades your privacy. Natural steps make it easy to get in and out of the ocean. High tide, you can jump off the rocks (55'deep), low tide (18'deep) just step in (water shoes help).
The patio is built on the iron shore, great for those people that hate sand in their toes!
There is a small snorkeling spot approximately 400 yards down the shoreline.
Casa Conchiglia is the culmination of many years visiting Provo. All that we loved has been included, ceiling fans in all rooms (including bathrooms), the colors and the furnishings. Even the paintings by local artists are based on original photo's from years of diving the turqoise waters of The Turks and Caicos Islands.
It is MESMERIZING!

We have been traveling to the Turks and Caicos Islands for over 13 years. Previously owning property at the Sands, we decided that the Turks and Caicos was were we wanted to spend time when we retire. Over a three year period, we designed and built our 'Island Home'. We named our home Casa Conchiglia which means 'Shell House' as generations of locals have collected conch along these shores. There are thousands of 'Knocked' conch shells left behind as testament to this harvest. This tranquil home and its view exceeds our expectations continously. Enjoy. David and Suzanne

There is not much else to say other than BREATH TAKING! From the moment we landed in Turks and Caicos we were treated with respect. Delano, our Taxi driver, went grocery shopping for us and drove us from place to place whenever we wanted. The property manager, Mark, was also great. He made sure we were all settled in and if we needed anything we could call. Casa Conchiligia was everything the pictures showed and more! We started planning our next trip back to the same place after the first day for next year. You cant go wrong with Turks and Caicos or Casa Conchiligia!!!
Casa Conchiglia gets 6 Stars! The villa was amazing and views were over the top!!
We loved Casa Conchiglia from the moment we stepped foot on the property. The pictures did not do it justice. From the open floor plan to the well-stocked kitchen, residents will be hard pressed to want for much (we didn’t). It was easy to get lost in the views from inside the house (with the sliding glass wall open) and out by the pool. Kite surfers zipping by along with the occasional jetski or boat made lounging poolside extra enjoyable. The views never got old! It was also easy to get anywhere on the island because the proximity to Leeward Highway. We felt very safe at night with the gated driveway and home security system. Mark, our on island contact, took great care of us all week and was super helpful with a botched arrival due to airline problems. It was a week we will never forget...and a house we will rent again.
Spectacular Views and Beautiful Property
The pictures on HomeAway were completely accurate! In fact, if possible the property was even more amazing!!! We visited the property the 2nd week of January 2018. From the moment we walked in the Villa we fell in love with the views, the home, the furnishings, the true indoor/outdoor living experience. When you open the front door you are greeted with the spectacular ocean view and the wonderful Trade Winds. The constant winds blowing through the Villa kept us so comfortable that we never closed the windows and never needed air conditioning. The winds also kept the mosquitos away so we were never bothered by bugs the entire stay. What a wonderful experience leaving doors wide open all day and night. Walking around in barefeet, shorts and tank tops. Sleeping with the sound of the ocean and waking to a beautiful sunrise every day. What could be better especially for people coming from single digit temperatures, snow and ice in Connecticut and Maryland! The privacy at this location was perfect for us, private & quiet. Due to the rocky coastline there were no tourists walking up and down a beach right in front of our villa. When we did go out on various excursions or dining it was only a 10 to 15 minute drive. 3 evenings we pampered ourselves and hired an inhouse and amazing chef, Latika, owner of “Taste of the Islands”. Truly gourmet dining at the most beautiful location we could find on the island (our Villa) and we didn’t have to lift a finger before, during or after dinner. Not only did she prepare our meals and cleanup everything, she also did our grocery/liquor shopping prior to our arrival and put it all away for us. The Villa kitchen was so well stocked she had everything she needed and then some. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how super comfy the beds were and how nice the bed linens, bath and beach towels were. In my final comments I would like to mention how wonderful (and patient 😉�) the owner’s were. I dealt primarily with Suzanne and she was always right there whenever I had questions or concerns prior to our arrival. I would like to thank Suzanne and her husband for allowing us the privilege of staying in their beautiful Villa!!! Also, a big thank you to their Property Manager, Mark Bowden! He was extremely helpful. He even rushed over to open the driveway gate manually when the power went out on the entire island and we were trying to make our flight! What a life saver 😊�
Perfect in every way.
Gorgeous setting, gorgeous property. Very comfortable. Close to Grace beach and shopping, restaurants but as a family we cooked/grilled all but 2 nights. Perfect for a family of 5 or 6. The entry to the ocean requires water shoes but Long Bay is very shallow and we walked swam to the beach area near shore club for exercise almost daily. The breezes are amazing. We used the A/C but only at night. We will definitely come back.
Thank you so much for your kind review. Mark said you were wonderful guests, even with the smoke alarm beeping your first night! Your family is welcome back anytime. Have a great 2017.
Beautiful house, However....
My wife and I spent five nights here. The house is absolutely beautiful with an open floor plan and high quality contemporary furnishings. The panoramic ocean view is awesome. You will see a sunrise but not a sunset. The house sits 30' above sea level. there are steps down to a rocky coastline. The greenish water is calm and shallow and combined with the rocky shoreline is uninviting to swim, especially compared with Grace Bay which is a beautiful sandy beach with blue water and a mild surf. Grace bay is a 10 minute drive which while not much is an inconvenience especially considering you have to drive on the left side and the house is on a barely passable dirt road. If you want to relax on Grace Bay you need lounge chairs and an umbrella which are provided by all the hotels on the beach for THEIR guests only. So you either have to give them a room number ( try 202} or bribe the beach attendant with $5. Either way being an interloper is not cool. There is nothing within walking distance so the closest dining is the 10 minute drive. We ate out every day lunch and dinner ( two round trips to Grace bay) The house is ideal for a family or 2 or three couples who would take advantage of the beautiful kitchen and 10 seat dining table. The house is 5 stars but the location knocks off a star: if you want to spend your days in Grace Beach. If you like to hang out in a beautiful house and cook some meals there its definitely 5 stars. Almost all the rental homes are on the south side.
This is a great review! This home is truly about getting away from the crowd at Grace Bay. We spent years at our condo at The Sands before building our home on the south side. We loved Grace Bay, but the all too often drunk tourist screaming F-Bombs at his friends or children became too much. Now we just visit, when we choose. I appreciate the honesty of this review, Our home is not for everyone. The only comment I disagree with is the road. Don't get me wrong, it is 400 yards of ugly Island Road, fortunately this visitor did not come in the late 90's when the whole island was just like it! We look forward to turning onto our dirt road and the complete serenity we find at the end of it...
PS FYI The road has been regraded (Fall 2016) and is now one of the better roads leading to a magnificent south side view!
Just returned last week... Stunning villa!! The photos do NOT do it justice!! Views were spectacular from sunrise to sunset. And wow, the sunsets (sigh)!!! The place was spotless and still so comfortable and inviting. We had such a great and relaxing time. Mark and the staff were so helpful and friendly. We can't wait to come back :)
Thank you so much for your great review. You get it! The whole house is subserviant to the beauty around it...a wonderful place to deflate! Mark and staff are special.
