About Leanne Karnehm

My wife and I are residents of the Turks and Caicos Islands, we built Coral Gardens in two phases. We were born and raised in Vancouver, B.C. - Canada and traveled to Provo about 20 years ago for the first time, where we fell in love with the islands.

Why Leanne Karnehm chose Grace Bay

location, location, location!! View of ocean, snorkeling reef in front of the condo, Dive Shop onsite, Somewhere Cafe onsite, fitness facility next door....swimming, snorkeling, diving, walking, relaxing!

What makes this condo unique

Penthouse is directly on Grace Bay Beach. I am the developer of Coral Gardens, and saved the penthouse for my family. Guests love this boutique resort, the warm staff and the fact that the best snorkeling is steps from our door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the third time we’ve stayed at Coral Gardens (a couple in our 50s), but because my brother came along with us this trip, we rented a 2-bedroom Penthouse Grand Suite. This suite, the best one at Coral Gardens, is large, comfortable, has great air conditioning, flat screen TVs (that we didn’t really watch), good wifi, fully updated bathrooms and kitchen, which was nicely stocked with all the equipment you need, and best of all - a wrap-around terrace that has the best sunset views on the island.

Having this large deck with such a spectacular view actually changed our evening dining plans, as we mostly wound up getting takeout dinners and even cooking a couple of nights “at home”. We just did not want to leave before sunset – or during the hour afterward, when the whole sky would put on a show of pinks, reds and purples. Being located on Bight Reef is such a plus, in that we could snorkel anytime we wanted – and did so at least twice a day. So many colorful fish, as well as seeing the resident barracuda, some rays and our favorite sea turtles!

I would highly recommend renting a car, so you can go to other beaches and explored the island. Also, you will love staying here so much that you’ll need to get provisions at the nearby IGA on Leeward Highway.

The penthouse was incredible. The views are unparalleled. It’s proximity to fantastic snorkeling was a huge plus. The restaurant next-door was nice. The staff were absolutely wonderful. Overall the accommodations were top notch. My only complaint was the pools are rather small, however there are two of them.

Just wanted to shout out the biggest heartfelt THANK YOU from all of us to Leanne, Jamy and Gerome! I can still hardly believe we were there on your beautiful beach and staying in your gorgeous accommodations! It was the most incredible trip of my life! You have spoiled us and we are trying to figure out how to come back! The view from your penthouse is outstanding! I want to blow up one of my photos to hang in my bedroom so I can see that view each day I open my eyes!

This house needs to be updated

  • 1 of 5

The tiles are broken, the fan is rusty, the plugs are broken, the jacuzzis handle is broken, and the mosquito door cover is broken. Nothing is sturdy in the house, many things are crumbling and need repairs. Theres no tall mirror so you can see your whole outfit. The house is very filthy, the bathrooms are not properly cleaned, the tiles in the showers are covered in filth and goop. The only thing housekeeping does is taking your garbage and making your bed. They don't change the sheets, nothing is cleaned, maybe once in a while towels are changed. You have to buy your own water, there is no complimentary water after spending thousands on this house. You have to get your own beach towels from the front office, which is even an office, it is a room without any ventilation, and you have to drop the towels off. There is no service by the beach, nobody comes up to you asks you how your day is or if you need anything. The staff is very rude, especially Jaime. When we first came to the house, after a 10 hour flight filled with delays, we were greeted with a very rude introduction. We would be looking around the room and he would keep saying hello in a rude manner, like calling a child to come over to you. When we were trying to make reservations for cocoa bistro we suggested a time to reserve for and he rudely told us to "Take that out of your minds making a reservation to coco bistro." We're from new york, we go to the best restaurants all the time, we always find spots even during the busiest times because theres always cancellations and he was telling us on this small island that we would never find time to go eat there. BUT, we eventually found it for thursday night and we went (food was horrible there). We didn't understand why it was so famous, do not expect anything. Food hovered above poor, closer to average. Magnolia and Mango Reef were our favorite restaurants. Opus is pretty nice as well if you're looking for more of a americanized style place. They gave us a complimentary 20 minute massage, but the walk there is 10 minutes. What you get is one room, no air conditioning, and one masseur, and we went there as a couple. We ended up with my husband getting the massage, while i didn't, because i did not want to wait. In the end, we didn't really enjoy our stay, we actually only paid for the view. For it to be better the owner must be less stingy, upgrade the place, and add some service.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the penthouse, and everyone in our party agreed that we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The location of the unit could not have been any better, and the views from the balcony were spectacular. Prior to our trip, I had read some about the reef in front of the property but didn't realize until we got there that it is the place were virtually everyone on that section of Grace Bay goes to snorkel--and it was right outside our door!

Staff was friendly and helpful. While the unit was a bit older, it was well maintained and spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed for the minimal cooking we did. The daily maid service was appreciated. Didn't mind the 3 flights of stairs. It forced us to get some exercise after being lazy sitting on the beach all day! The condo definitely contributed to us having a great experience on the island.
