Overview

Grace Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

WHY WE PICKED TURKS AND CAICOS: Since I was 12 I made it my quest to find the world's best beaches. I told everyone I'd have my bungalow by the ocean with tons of palm trees. I've been to some gorgeous ones, from Maldives, Cook Islands, Bora Bora and beyond. When I married I told my husband retirement included warmth, turquoise water and palm trees. After traveling the world, I found Grace Bay Beach to be the one! I never get tired of those gorgeous neon hues!

WHY TURKS AND CAICOS IS THE PLACE:

Leeward Beach and Grace Bay Beach blend for miles of endless beach

One of the sunniest driest islands in Caribbean

Easy to get to on big jet planes (I avoid puddle jumpers!)

WHY BAREFOOT PALMS IS THE VILLA:

Private pool, with tropical Tiki bar, landscape lights and Tiki torches

**Free WiFi**

--We offer Flexible Dates!!!

--Loaner pay as you go Cell Phone for use

--The longer you stay, the more you save

--Only a 3 minute walk to stunning beach

--By car 3 minutes to supermarket and the best restaurants on island

Save money staying only blocks from the beach in a quiet setting without giving up luxury . Pack the cooler and find your own secluded stretch of Leeward/Pelican Beach and search for giant conch shells to bring back home. Enjoy happy hour at the pool tiki bar with palm thatch roof before heading out to dinner. Barefoot Palms is casual and laid back yet elegant with travertine tiles, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

Every room has soaring high cathedral ceilings and open living space. The huge master bedroom has a king size bed , walk in closet and writing desk area. 2 other bedrooms have queen size beds; great for families or 3 couples. Each bedroom has its own TV, Cable and DVD players. There's access to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. Individual A/C units in each bedroom and the rest of the house has central air.

The open kitchen/dining/living rooms will have you cooking eating and entertaining with all utensils and an extensive movie library. There's a Bluetooth Soundbar for music and recent best selling books for reading enjoyment on the beach.

There are small tropical touches throughout with Tommy Bahama furniture, palm tree and shell cabinet handles, and colorful fish switch plates.

It's hard to break away from the huge backyard patio with a pool and the best feature, a tropical tiki hut bar!

About Ramona Settle

Obssessed with warm weather and beaches, I was lucky enough to travel the world in my quest for the world's best beach. Nothing beats the turquoise hues of Grace Bay Beach. Double lucky that I was hired by Fodor's Travel publications to write guidebooks on Turks and Caicos and Bahamas.

Ramona Settle purchased this villa in 2002

Why Ramona Settle chose Providenciales - Provo

My husband knew my goal in life to have a beach house. After going to numerous islands, when landing over Chalk Sound, he was looking out the window at the bright turquoise water and said, 'this is the island!'

What makes this villa unique

walk to a secluded beach, fun tropical tiki bar, in a quiet upscale neighborhood for a fraction of the price staying on Grace Bay, plus bonus discounts with cars, cell phones and excursions.

We stayed at this wonderful Villa for a week.

The house is clean, conveniently located to groceries store.

3 min walk up the street to the beach.

Its large for a family and has anything you may need.

The pool is real star of the show.

Just Fabulous!

Will definitely return

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been down to Turks and Caicos 7 or 8 times in the past 3 years. We quickly switched from resort experiences, prices, and product to home owner offerings. We love to swim particularly in pools and had wanted to rent this well priced villa fir sometime and finally got the chance this past November. We were extremely pleased with the home, and found it to be genuine, inviting and well situated. We particularly enjoy leeward for the community feel of the area and typically start our day with a walk to blue haven for coffee. The home is ideal for a full family with plenty of space to spread out. We will be back again with extended family and look forward to Ramonas hospitality. The owner has great insight into the island and never hesitates to respond to any question we asked.

Great experience. Thank you

Perfect Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect home for an island get away. Perfect for families to rent since there are three bedrooms. The location is great with a beach right down the road, which was our favorite. We did drive all around the island but always found ourselves back at this beach. The house had everything we needed, the pool was a great way to end our day.

Ramona was so easy to deal with and answered any questions immediately. She had lots of suggestions.

Excellent home is great area!

  • 5 of 5

Barefoot Palms is a good surprise, a very nice home perfect for a small group or family.

Located in most desirable area in Provo, beach, shopping, activities and dining.

Close to beaches - a short walk to our favorite beach

Close to resort activities

Great Restaurants nearby

The home is comfy, very clean, and has terrific A/C system that cools the bedrooms in minutes.

The pool and tiki bar are perfect for the time you don't want to head to the beach.

Also, the owner, Ramona is so accommodating, she will help you literally with anything!

Also a good value, as the owner has set prices very competitive to keep her home rented - we recommend this home.

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Barefoot Palms for a week in July. We've used vbro many times and we had another wonderful experience this time. First off, Ramona, the owner is terrific with answering questions, giving recommendations, assistance etc. It saved me a lot of time rather than going over to the Tripadvisor forums to ask questions. Also when the power went off in Leeward for just 45 minutes one night, Ramona called to check up on us. Also, Jameka and Wendy who are nearby on the island are very helpful if the need arises.

I am so thankful that we stayed on the Leeward end of the island because we felt this beach was by far the most spectacular and suited our needs better than Grace Bay. I had looked at another property that was in the chalk sound area and I'm so glad that I did not choose that one. It is just a short walk to the beach and I went running every morning on the beach up to Emerald Point. There are some large homes built on this beach, but they are set way back so as not to deter from the beauty of this amazing beach. Try snorkeling around some of the rock formations. Also, we felt the safest in this area of the island, not that we had any issues, but it was a very nice community.

Lastly, the house is older, but is well maintained and has everything you will need. The pool is wonderful and the plants, trees surrounding it are beautiful. We've been on many islands where the internet/tv/electricity/water etc gave us problems and that was not the case here. You won't want to spend a lot of time watching tv or using the internet, but it's there if you need it. The rental price is right on target, and compares to similar homes we've rented on other islands.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a beautiful long weekend this winter at Barefoot Palms!

Every positive bit of praise below from other guests regarding Barefoot Palms is right on the money! Actually it is even better than described!

The Villa is much more beautiful thank the pictures show!! it is SPOTLESS & extremely well equipped! has everything you could possibly need and then some etc. a Very short walk to a GORGEOUS BEACH!

The OWNER AND ON ISLAND MANAGEMENT STAFF A PLEASURE to deal with whatever you need taken care of!

But since all this has been said before over and over

I want to ADD a bit more!

We have been travelers for many many years. For beach trips we have covered a lot of the Caribbean, South Pacific, Mediterranean,and even Asia. But Providenciales has become our favorite for many years now!

HOWEVER one thing we have INSISTED ON no matter where we go! We love being in a hotel/home DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH or at least a FULL VIEW of the water right outside our door or porch!!!

WELL.....THANKS TO BAREFOOT PALMS that has changed BIG TIME! We are CONVERTED!

From day one we not only LOVED IT but felt as if OUR OWN HOME was transported to the Caribbean with the addition of being only STEPS from gorgeous beach and with a pool and even a TIKI BAR!

The term HOME AWAY FROM HOME is casually tossed around by people all the time but Barefoiot Palms ACTUALLY REALLY fits that bill!!!! with ALL the amenities even satellite TV! (great for a rainy day!)

DO NOT HESITATE TO TRY THIS LOVELY VILLA! We are counting the days until our next visit!
