Overview

About the property

A 2 BR, 2.5 BA condo in the Plaza at Ocean Club West Resort

We have been the proud owners of this beautiful condo in the Plaza at Ocean Club West since April 2014. The resort is located in the heart of Grace Bay, consistently voted a top beach by Conde Nast, with wide white sandy beaches and clear blue Caribbean waters. The Plaza is the building located closest to Grace Bay Road, and it is just a 3 minute walk from the beach. There is access to many of the resort’s amenities, with complimentary lounge chairs, umbrellas and more. The pool is large and meanders in a small lazy circle past lush landscaping and the Seaside Cafe - a nice outdoor cabana style restaurant just steps from the beach. The Cafe is great for a quick break from the sun, where you can get a snack and a cool beverage (including those for the adults!). It also has a nice menu with relatively (for the island) well-priced meals.

The resort, with its beautifully landscaped walkways throughout, has many other nice amenities. There are 2 lighted tennis courts, and free use of the paddle board and kayak, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our condo is equipped with everything you could want for your vacation home. It has large bedrooms, modern bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen for home-cooked meals, and a spacious dining room and living room with free Wifi access.

If cooking isn’t on your itinerary, or shopping is what you have in mind, the Plaza’s convenient location puts fine dining and wonderful shops just minutes away - with no car needed. The fabulous French Caicos Bakery is just across the street, and one block further is the Jamaican Patty Place - our kids’ two most favorite places to eat! Just blocks further is the shopping district of Ports of Call, Salt Mill Plaza and the Regent Village. After you have shopped to your heart’s content, head into one of the restaurants there like Thai Orchid (don’t ask for spicy unless you mean it!), Mango Reef or Bella Luna. For a romantic candlelit dinner under the palms, head in the other direction to Coco Bistro - fine dining at its best. After dinner there, stop in for a short while at Casablanca Casino on your way home.

If more athletic endeavors are what attract you, the Provo Golf Club is nearby. Snorkeling and diving expeditions can be set up, as well as many other type of water activities. We can even put you in touch with a travel agent who specializes in all things Provo, if you want completely hassle-free vacation planning.

Our host Jenny, will be at your service during your check-in and check-out times. She is a caring and competent individual with a wealth of information and would be happy to help you get the most from your vacation. In addition, for those families who want just a wee break from the kiddies for that candlelight dinner, she is a wonderful babysitter - our kids love her!

We are so excited to be the (relatively) new owners in the beautiful, tropical Turks and Caicos Islands. We want to share our home with you and hope that you will find it as relaxing, peaceful and rejuvenating as we have.

About Marjorie P.

We are a family of four who have been coming to Turks and Caicos with our cousins and their family almost every year since 2010. Snorkeling quickly became one of the few sports that our entire family could do together, probably because it allows one to take things in at their own pace, while still being able to share the experience with those around them. The island has also become one of the few places that my husband can truly relax, because things get done on “island time” - a phrase you will hear often.

We started toying with the idea of buying a vacation home after our cousins bought their own place in the Plaza. We decided to make it a family affair and look forward to sharing it with you.

PS - One of the most memorable things about our first visit was the absolute clarity of the beautiful blue waters. We decided to name our condo after the starfish, or Asterie, that we could see while snorkeling in front of the resort - even though they were at least 20 feet down! So come and visit Villa de Asterie!

Marjorie P. purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marjorie P. chose Providenciales - Provo

We have stayed in the Plaza, and Unit #207, several times. We cannot stress enough how happy we are with its location. The resort’s amenities are just steps away, and the resort staff are wonderful. We love this stretch of beach, and have spent many happy hours just sitting in the sand and then running into the water to snorkel and shell hunt. And we have found that everything we needed was just a short walk from the condo. We love the Caicos Bakery across the street, and visit it almost every morning. If our kids had their way, we would be eating lunch from the Patty Place every day, especially if we also followed it with their delicious ice cream. The nearby Graceway Gourmet IGA has all the food and household necessities we could want, as well as a nice selection of beer, wine and alcohol. Our family enjoys the evening walks we often take to “downtown” for dinner or shopping. It is a comfortable place in a safe, beautiful location, and we look forward to enjoying it for years to come.

What makes this condo unique

We have looked at several units in the Plaza, and were pleased when this particular unit became available. It is modern, clean, and spacious. We also especially like being an end unit, as the windows on the end let in the morning light.

Condo is well appointed, all the benefits of home.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice. The master bedroom is large and the king size bed is so comfortable it is incredible. I actually looked for the name of the mattress is was so fabulous! The location is great, the beach is beautiful and the towel service was a great amenity. The restaurant was delicious, lobster was cooked to perfection. Majorie has done a great job with the condo. It had a blender for my frozen drinks, a hairdryer so you didn't have to bring one, tennis racquets and balls. You just can't go wrong with this rental if you have a family! Will return!

Amazing Location & Super Value

  • 5 of 5

The Plaza at Ocean Club West is a treasure! It is the best location to walk to town for the many restaurants, supermarket, bakery, pizza, and ice cream. And best of all less than a 3 minute walk and you are on Grace Bay Beach. It is a very short walk across a parking lot and you are on the Ocean Club West resort's property. And paying a fraction of the cost that they are paying!!! You have access to their fitness club, bikes, pool, and beach chairs. The staff is super friendly and helpful! The condo itself is large and clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need to cook. The cabinets have spices and oils and the fridge has the necessary basics. Marjie is an excellent owner quick to respond to your emails. She was a pleasure to rent from. You will not be disappointed! This was our second year returning and will definitely be back!

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

This unit at Ocean Club West was fantastic. The location couldn't have been better, close to stores, supermarket, and other resorts and of course the ocean and pool!! There is a shuttle to take you to the sister resort, Ocean Club where you can have dinner or go golfing directly across the street. The staff at Ocean Club West was amazingly friendly, courteous and helpful. The condo itself was beautiful and well kept. The beds were extremely comfortable which was a bonus! We were a family of 5 and stayed comfortably. The owners were extremely helpful, easy to work with and very accommodating. This was the best vacation we have had. The island is a paradise. We will be back!!

Great Value in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 rented this unit for the week of Christmas. We had a great trip!

Our main consideration was location. And this condo's location is perfect - on the main drag of shopping and dining on Grace Bay Road. You can walk everywhere. It's about a 3 minute walk through the lovely Ocean Club West resort to reach Grace Bay beach.

The unit itself is very nice. It's is nicer than it looks in the pictures, and larger. It slept the 5 of us comfortably, 2 per bedroom and 1 on the sleeper sofa. It could easily entertain a larger group in the evenings. Everything is comfortable and clean.

We compared the cost of this unit to the main Ocean Club West resort. We paid about 1/3 of what they were charging for a 2BR gardenview room, and about 1/4 for an oceanview. Staying at the Plaza gets you access to all the same resort amenities, and we thought the thousands of dollars in savings were better spent on scuba diving, massages, horseback riding, etc. Considering how little time we spent in the condo, the tradeoffs (the short walk and no pretty view) were no big deal to us. Our logic was - why come to T&C if you're going to spend all day indoors?

If you're like us and are looking for a clean, convenient, affordable condo to use as a home-base for beaches and activities, I highly recommend this unit.

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We decided on this condo for our vacation and couldn't have been more pleased that we did. We were a party of four, two couples, and this location had more than enough room for all of us. The two master suites worked for us perfectly. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were fantastic. The kitchen was very well appointed, we made breakfast and lunch everyday in the condo and never looked for something that we couldn't find. I was a little apprehensive about the location, with the unit being separated form the resort, but this was a non issue after our first walk to the beach. It was just a short walk from the condo and there were always towels and beach chairs available when we got to the beach. We did rent a car for a couple days to explore the island a little and there was always plenty of parking right in front of the unit, but even without the car, there was plenty of amenities within walking distance. We walked to the grocery store several times, as well as several restaurants, all of which were within a few minutes. Overall, we were so happy with our decision to rent this unit and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

Great Vacation Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this tropical paradise! Marjie was courteous, helpful and prompt in getting back to us to arrange this rental. Adrien, the on-site host was also very courteous, friendly, and helpful in addressing the few small issues that arose, making our stay a smooth and hasslefree experience. The unit itself was spacious, attractive, comfortable, well maintained, and very clean. While not an ocean or garden view location, the spectacular Grace Bay Beach is a short walk away. The Ocean Club West resort is well maintained, attractive, and centrally located. Overall, we had an exceptional experience in this corner of paradise and hope to return next winter! Thank you again Marjie and Adrien!
