About Leanne

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 chose Providenciales - Provo

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

Our family of 18 spent a week in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Christmas week. The family is not big on high rises or crowded resorts. I did a lot of research on the internet and read lots of reviews. The Coral Gardens sounded like what I was interest in and once I saw the view I was sold. I rented through www.coralgardens.com with Leanne Karnehm. Leanne was so helpful in helping me select the right condos for our group. She and Jaya Azore were so patience and helpful with my many e-mails with questions. They always got right back to me. I ended up getting a two bedroom Coral Garden Ocean front Penthouse suite on the 3rd floor which had the best view I could imagine. Coral Gardens is only 3 stories, only negative is there is no elevator. But was good exercise even for my bad knew. We also rented two 2 bedroom condos and one 3 bedroom condo for some of the family at Reef Residence which is a short beach walk to Coral Garden and beach. They had nice private landscaped patio areas. Those family members enjoyed the stay there and could keep their scuba gear and a rented paddle board and kayak on the patio areas. Décor depends on the owner of that condo.

In front of Coral Gardens is one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island. All the family enjoyed being able to walk right from the beach to snorkel. There were lots of different kinds of colorful fish. My husband and I enjoyed watching the family in the mornings from our balcony at CG while having coffee. Jerome would set up some chairs and lounges each morning in front of our condo for the family to use. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Jami from Coral Gardens and Nuwan from Reef Residence could not have been more helpful and friendly. They got to know most of our family by name. Nuwan made all of our dinner reservations at several places. He did a great job and it is complimentary. They also serve a free rum drink each day and one 20 minute spa treatment for each person. We were enjoying ourselves so much we forgot to take advantage of it. Maybe next time!

Next door to the Coral Gardens is the Somewhere Café. It is an outdoor Mexican restaurant which serves tacos, fajita, nachos, hamburgers, pulled pork tacos or sandwiches, etc. All were very good. The staff was very friendly. They had live music in the evenings until about 10 pm. We enjoyed listening from our balcony in the evenings. Half of the family walked (15 to 20 mins.) to most restaurants in the evening and the rest of us rode in an 8 pa

Perfect location, Super vacation for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We went with our two boys 9 and 11 and they had a great time from start to finish. The unit, we had 1301/1302 was wonderful with the two sided sliding glass doors to the patio and sunset views looking over Somewhere Cafe. We spent our evenings on the patio or in the living room with the sliding doors completely open. Wed through Fri Somewhere had live music from 6:30 to 9:30 you could listen to from your patio which was very nice.

Being on the top floor provided great views of the ocean and beach and nice breezes. The portion of protected reef at your beach front was wonderful. There were sea turtles in the grasses and a myriad of fish in the coral. The beach chairs and umbrellas were getting a little older but were fine. The patio chaise lounges could be more comfortable but I used a pillow which helped.

Jesse was very helpful on site with any needs but we had very few. IGA for groceries was very close and well stocked. Prices are about 50% higher than at home but everything has to be boated in.

Dinners are not cheap but I recommend Mango Reef very good see Travis as your waiter, Magnolia very good, Baci very good, I reviewed each on trip advisor. The Thursday fish fry was a little disappointing food wise. Many choices maybe we made bad ones. Local vendors selling souvenirs at the fish fry were pretty good. Half day snorkel trip worth it with Caicos Dreams or Island Vibe saw sharks (non man eating), lots of fish and iguana's.

There are slightly nicer or newer units at resorts close by but these Units Have great patios and are a much better value.

Wow! Beautiful & Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! What a beautiful and wonderful place! Leanne & Jaya were awesome with booking and helpful information, definitely the best way to book your stay! We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed every second of it. Upon arrival we couldn’t wait to see the beach, and at last once we opened the door to unit 1312, straight through the large dining & living area, as wide as the eye could see, “Pow” the most beautiful view! All we could do was gaze out and say wow, over & over. The sliding glass door walls, whether open or closed, absolutely extends your room right out into Grace Bay. This suite puts you at the tops of the palms with high, long, wide views of Grace Bay. My wife and daughter quickly unpacked their stuff so that they could get down to the beach right away. The two bedrooms are large and spacious. My daughter loved that she had her own private small garden balcony, bathroom, T.V., dresser, microwave, toaster...very nice 2nd bedroom. The main bedroom was great with a huge bathroom, my wife loved the large bathtub. The bedroom has its own glass door with direct access to the far side of the large wrap around patio, that was nice. The kitchen was very nice & had all you needed to make yourself comfortably at home during the stay. Impressive unit! Nuwan & Jaime as onsite concierge were very friendly & helpful if anything was needed while there. We had a rental car & went to the nearby IGA to get what we needed for our initial food & supplies. We ended up liking Graceway in the Village the best and did our remaining grocery shopping there. We took the car out for a few excursions but for the most part just stayed right there at Coral Gardens…it was the best place to be. We snorkeled every day at our leisurely will, it was so nice having the reef right at your toes. We saw our own special things on our underwater adventures and had our little stories to tell one another every time. Great reef life to explore and beautiful water with most days crystal clear. The beach staff was great too. They were friendly and would make sure you were well situated with your chairs, umbrella, beach towels and/or activities. Jerome especially was a real pleasure. Somewhere Cafe & Bar was great to have right there. We didn’t get the breakfast but the lunches & dinners were good and the convenience was great. We did hit the Thursday fish fry which was a fun experience. Overall, awesome! Love this place & we thank everyone for an absolutely wonderful stay, can’t wait to come back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! We are so happy you and your family had an amazing stay at our condo. We love it as well. I agree the view with the sliding pocket doors make the view that much more impressive. Our employees always take the best care of our guests and help in any way they can. Make sure you contact Leanne again to stay in the best Penthouse at Coral Gardens!

Beautiful, relaxing and easy vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just as pictured! From the moment we walked into unit 1312 we were blown away by the absolutely stunning views of Grace Bay from this penthouse! This was a quick three night Spring Break get-a-way for us and our teenage boys...and we all agreed it was the perfect vacation. The beauty of this trip is that we were literally on the beach within an hour after we landed. The airport is only 10 minutes away, we used a shuttle service from the airport to the condo and then Jayme gave us a local cell phone to call for cabs as needed to run to the nearby IGA. This section of the beach is quiet, mostly young families and couples. The beach staff were very friendly and helped set up lounge chairs and umbrellas as needed. The water is beautiful! We brought our own snorkeling sets and being able to snorkel on the reef at anytime was THE best part about this location. It is like having your own private aquarium...we saw so many varieties of fish, sea turtles, star fish, lobster and the coral is pretty too. Very clear water. There is a section of red coral that is roped off by buoys that you have to avoid but we just swam around the perimeter. The condo is nicely decorated, clean and the kitchen is well stocked. The nearby IGA is convenient but pricier than we expected. The Somewhere Cafe is perfect for all three meals...great laid back restaurant! We did not use the dive shop but did see people renting paddle boards and doing snuba. We walked down to another beachfront restaurant one night and went to the Thursday night fish fry...the teens enjoyed that...lots of local food and a DJ for dancing. All in all this is a wonderful vacation spot...so much so that we are returning again this summer!

The best view on a most beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

The condo itself is beautiful and the view unbelievable. Leanne and Jaya are great to work with and very responsive to requests and questions, including making dinner reservations. When we arrived Jamy was wonderful to work with and he made sure we had everything we needed, including taking us to get lobster tails and making sure we got a good deal. The condo was very clean, something Jamy takes pride in. We cooked in 3 nights using the grill. We enjoyed some of the restaurants for dinner and lunch and also enjoyed the Fish Fry, do get there by 5:30 for seats. Being right in front of the reef is wonderful and we enjoyed swimming around it everyday when the water was calm. Please do respect the red flags, enough said. That brings me to the beach. The chairs are comfortable and in great shape. The beach attendants are a pleasure and must be commended for the work they do keeping people from swimming inside the reef. Believe me they have a difficult job and they do it well. We had beautiful days and most people were on the beach, I hardly saw anyone in the pools. We also enjoyed being so close to Somewhere, we got drinks from there a few times and enjoyed the music at night from the condo, it was never late.

I do have to say a few negatives. While the furniture is beautiful and well maintained, much of it is not comfortable. The deck lounges and living room furniture are not comfortable at all to sit in. The loungers need something, and the couch cushions are too thin it feels like you are sitting with a bar along your bottom. We were there at the same time as woodland gardner and we all had the same feelings. It really was a shame because the living room and the deck are so beautiful and relaxing and all you really want to do is enjoy them. We spent most of our time sitting in the chairs at the deck table. I also think some of the kitchen utensils could be updated and our refrigerator leaked inside and we kept a bowl to collect the water. We did find the bed comfortable. We also loved the sliding doors open during the day hearing the ocean and feeling the breeze. The air conditioner cooled the condo at night, we were able to shut it off one cool evening and opening the doors.

Coral Gardens needs to add a few more water toys for people to use. I noticed some newer items at other resorts. The Developers Condos are beautiful and deserve a little more attention to make them as special as they can be.

Turks and Caicos and Grace Bay is a must visit place.

Amazing view of Grace Bay

  • 5 of 5

We were "wowed" from the first moment the door was opened, to see straight thru this condo to the turquoise waters of Grace Bay. The view from this condo is exquisite. The sliding doors open easily to the bay breezes that blow thru the condo by day, we turned the air on for the balmy evenings to sleep. Very very spacious for the 4 of us, 2 couples (we rented the adjoining bedroom as well). We cooked several simple meals and found the kitchen to be adequate. The rental was very clean, appliances all in good working order, both king beds very comfortable. The only thing I would change about the furniture is adding cushions to the patio lounges (too uncomfortable for me) and heavier cushions to the livingroom furniture, they were in great shape, just a little thin. My sister and I took advantage of the massages that were offered at the Reef Residences, and they were wonderful!

Jaya and Leanne were very responsive to booking questions and Jaime was an excellent resource upon arrival and thruout the week. Everything really went off without a hitch! We ate at several restaurants Bay Bistro, Bugaloos, Mango Reef, and Coco Bistro, they were all excellent. And of course having Somewhere right next door was perfect for a quick lunch or breakfast. (they also have some nice music a few evenings a week that shuts off about 10-10:30 at night)

We rented a car and enjoyed shopping at the IGA and driving to a few restaurants. The car rental process thru Grace Bay Car rentals also went very well, no hassles.

We highly recommend this condo. We celebrated my husbands 60th birthday and my sister and brother-in-laws 33rd wedding anniversary….we will never forget this Turks and Caicos getaway! Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us.
