Overview

Providenciales Villa Rental Photos and Description

Outstanding views from this pretty property on Sapodilla Bay

At Villa Mariposa we offer special rates for smaller groups of 2 - 4 people, please contact us for details or see our current detailed rates below. The villa is only ever rented to one group at a time though - so you always have your privacy!

Villa Mariposa is a private oceanfront villa nestled in a half acre of tropical gardens and enjoys panoramic views of the turquoise water of the Caicos Banks. You will find large patios with comfortable furniture, a 48 foot free-form freshwater swimming pool and unobstructed vistas of turquoise waters - you may never want to leave!

Laze to the sound of the sea lapping at the shoreline below, or walk down the steps to the large sea-level deck where you can take the steps into the water for swimming and snorkeling, or take out any of the three double kayaks provided for your pleasure. Don't forget to look for the glow worms from the dock, a few days after the full moon each month, details in the villa's guest book.

Taylor Bay, a large crescent-shaped beach with sugar-white sand which is always quiet and sometimes deserted, is a two–minute stroll from the villa's private driveway. Enjoy a dip in the shallow, calm waters that are ideal for children or enjoy a romantic sunset stroll and cocktails on the beach from your cooler.

Inside the villa, you will find a professionally designed décor with terra cotta floors, wood paneled walls, and 25 foot cathedral ceilings. Mariposa has three lovely bedrooms, each with a full ensuite bathroom. There is a king size bedroom, a queen size bedroom and a bedroom with two twin beds. Each bedroom is cooled by the wonderful ocean breezes or there is individual air conditioning. The kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher, microwave and more. We add upgrades to Mariposa every year to ensure it always looks its best; we purchased all new furniture for the great room in 2013 and installed new stone patios in 2014. The pool was completely refurbished in 2014. All the furniture has been replaced since we purchased Mariposa in 2009.

There are 2 flat screen TVs, DVDs and 4 iPod docking stations. A washer and dryer are available for guest use. Two local cell phones (pre-pay) are provided so that you can keep in touch.

In the Turks and Caicos Islands, you can do as much or as little as you please! Within a short stroll is the private tennis club, where you may play free of charge courtesy of Villa Mariposa. Provo is also home to a beautiful 18 hole golf course; bring your clubs or rent them at the course.

In the islands you will have access to a huge variety of water related activities; world class scuba diving, snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing, sailing and more. Provo has become a favourite destination for kiteboarding\kitesurfing, and for good reason. Excellent instruction is available and the location .... miles of soft sand and warm shallow water at Long Bay Beach - perfect for beginners and experienced riders alike. Ask us for recommendations on the best school to choose!

The world famous Grace Bay beach is a short drive away. It is consistently rated as one of the best in the world - miles of white sand, some areas have excellent snorkelling right off the beach, you will find fantastic restaurants on the 'main stretch' and then miles more that are nearly always deserted. Keep a look out for JoJo!

You can take day trips to other islands to experience all that the Turks and Caicos islands have to offer. Salt Cay for whale watching early in the year, quaint Grand Turk at any time (excellent diving here too!) North and Middle Caicos for even more deserted beaches and pretty coves. There are plenty of friendly people to help you on your way!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mariposa is your own private slice of paradise. As accommodations go, you could not ask for more - it really has everything. All of the features make you feel right at home with luxury thrown in - comfortable bedrooms with full bathrooms attached, a complete kitchen for you to make any meal, and the perfect private pool where you can spend all day looking out onto beautiful views with a beer in hand. You have your own private dock to the ocean into waist deep water, perfect for snorkelling or getting in and out of the kayaks provided at the villa.

Some of my favourite features include the free wifi and the island cell phones. This made spontaneous adventures for boat rides, water sport lessons or even just a good meal all the easier. Whenever our group wanted to split up for different activities we could easily communicate by using the phones.

One of our favourite pass times when we spent our week at Villa Mariposa was visiting the beach right around the corner. A short walk away (or short float in the ocean for the adventurous), Taylor Bay Beach is the most beautiful beach I have ever visited. White sand, turquoise waters and a long shallow walk out into the ocean (excellent for families and kids) makes it perfect for floating, swimming or tossing around a ball. Every visit we made to the beach was quiet, with only one or two couples or families spread out on the long beach.

Another luxury of Villa Mariposa and the surrounding area is being able to do anything with your day. We spent many days relaxing in the ocean and the pool, and nearby grocery stores made it easy to make our own meals and buy snacks. Other days we spent exploring the island, where everything is a very short car ride away. While there our group had a beautiful boat ride around part of the island, snorkelled around some superb reefs and even tried our hand at kiteboarding. For lunch and dinner there are so many excellent restaurants it was hard to choose where to go first.

We will definitely be returning to Villa Mariposa and recommending it highly to our friends, both adult groups and families.

Recommendations: TCI Kiteboarding, the fish fajitas at "Somewhere Cafe and Lounge", the patties and daiquiries at Chinsons Grill Shack, the view from Bugaloo's restaurant, anything and everything from Baci Ristorante.

A Caribbean Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The beauty of Villa Mariposa truly does take your breath away!

The villa is very private, spacious and beautifully decorated both inside and out.

The views are magnificent and lounging in the pool and overlooking the sea is something we will never forget - the water is the most beautiful colour of blue we have ever seen in the Caribbean. It's a short walk down to a spacious dock where you can snorkel or take out one of the kayaks, lots of fun.

The villa is very well designed and appointed so eating in was a treat - we barbequed local fish and lobster and it was out of this world!

The owners and mangers are great, very accommodating. They recommended lots of day trips and restaurants - every one was excellent, we particularly liked Las Brisas (which is just down the street) and the Tiki Hut.

The island of Provo is truly unique and beautiful and if you are interested, check out TCK kite boarding, ask for Nik, he's great!

We will highly recommend this to all our family and friends!

Paradise found.

  • 5 of 5

Villia Mariposa is an absolutely fabulous place with all the perks and amenities you could ever need. The property backs the ocean with a 5-minute walk to the beach. You always have your choice between ocean-side, beach and pool. The views are breath-taking. During our stay the weather was always fantastic, and the ocean-side location offers an excellent cutting breeze to keep temperatures comfortable even in the blistering heat of the afternoon. Great shade/shelter of the back porch overlooking the pool and the ocean and more open lounge areas really allow you to be in whichever temperment you desire.

The furniture and and amenities are luxurious with ample space to really enjoy spending time as a group, or tucking away to take in the surrounding beauty more privately. With 5 adults in our group, you never felt overwhelmed, and could easily add another.

It's a quick trip to anywhere on the island, with other villas sharing the coast line, but reclusive enough to have a very private- personal experience.

Overall this is a fantastic Villa, and I would strongly recommend it to any and all that are looking to really take advantage of all that Turks has to offer.

A Tropical Idyll

  • 5 of 5

I visited Mariposa in August 2013 with four friends.

Villa Mariposa took my breath away. It seemed such a shame not to spend more time in the beautifully decorated, airy, and comfortable interior but it was impossible to resist lounging on the wraparound porch, the luxurious pool, or the huge dock. The 15 foot ceilings and plentiful fans ensured that despite the August heat, it was never stuffy or hot inside.

Our days were filled with swimming, snorkeling, and relaxation. We kayaked to the shipwreck across the bay, swam/floated over to Taylor Bay beach (a 5 minute swim or 90 second walk), or snorkeled right off the dock -- look for the big channel crab that lives between Mariposa and the neighbour's place! I was also fortunate enough to go for two dive trips during my stay in Turks and Caicos and the rumours are true: it is truly world-class. During the afternoons, naps were popular with our crew and there never seemed to be a shortage of comfy couches or loungers to siesta on. In the evenings, we made delicious meals in the fully equipped kitchen, grilled on the BBQ, or went out for 5-star meals at any number of island restaurants. Graceway IGA will have everything you need, grocery-wise. My room (the master) overlooked the ocean and was cooled by the sea breezes. We never even needed to turn on our air conditioner. Waking up to the sweeping panorama just outside the window, I just couldn't believe that I wasn't dreaming anymore. What a treat to take your breakfast down to the dock and just listen to the waves crashing on the shore.

It's hard to believe that a place as truly lovely as Mariposa is real. I am already planning my next trip to this beautiful oasis. I cannot recommend it more highly.

Just as pretty as the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location right between two gorgeous beaches. Perfect dock that looks out onto the water where you can have your morning coffee or a nightcap. Unexpected but very appreciated amenities such as iPod docks throughout and ensuite bathrooms for every bedroom. Amazing pool and overall a really well maintained property. I had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!
