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
--We offer Flexible Dates!!!
--Loaner pay as you go Cell Phone for use
--Professional before and after cleaning
--Only a 3 minute walk to stunning beach, 10 minutes to another stunning beach access

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.

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 Leeward Settlement
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!'

Beautiful home in a great location
We were 3 couples staying at the barefoot palms villa during the last week in April 2018. This beautiful home had plenty of space for all of us. All of the bedrooms have very comfy beds and a/c units in each. There is also central a/c in the rest of the house. We especially loved the pool area and tiki bar. We barbequed on the patio and made a lot of great memories in this great spot. This house is a short walk to a spectaular beach. We also found another entrance to the beach a little further away but still walking distance that allowed us to walk the beach all the way down to the resorts. We rented a vehicle for the week and spent a lot of time exploring this beautiful island from one end to the other. I highly recommend this home! Thank you Ramona for sharing your sancuary in Turks & Caicos.
A Wonderful Stay in Paradise
This was our fourth trip to Turks, but our first time in Leeward. Barefoot Palms was perfect for us--a comfortable home base, near to everything in Grace Bay but far enough away to have peace and quiet. We loved being so close to Pelican Beach and appreciated how the house was well equipped with entertainment options.
I've looked at every house in the Caribbean on VRBO, just stay here and stop searching!
We stayed at this house for five nights at the beginning of February. Finding the house and checking in was a breeze. All of the instructions that were provided to us were spot on. Jameka, the property manager, was extremely pleasant. She met with us for a few minutes after checking in to show us over the house. We also had a chance to briefly meet the property owner, who was staying elsewhere on the island for a few days. She was wonderful as well and it was easy to tell that this was someone who truly cared about her guests and took the utmost care of her house. The property was incredibly clean, and I don't think the location could be beat. It's in a great neighborhood and was a stone's throw from from all of the restaurants and activities of the Grace Bay area, but also secluded enough to really relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. The pool area was great, the bedrooms were large and spacious with very comfortable beds. The house had everything that you could need including beach chairs, towels and coolers. Also all of the TVs had Netflix which was really nice as well. The beaches near the house were gorgeous. We tried going to the heart of Grace Bay one day, but we found those beaches were more crowded and not anywhere as nice as the Leeward beaches closes to the house. As previous reviewers mentioned, renting a car is a must, but it's really a piece of cake getting to the house and getting around. Something we tried that was a lot of fun was using Discovery Tours. Via boat, they dropped us off for the day on our own private island with food, drinks, chairs and umbrellas. We brought a Bluetooth speaker and some snorkel equipment and had an incredible time exploring. This was our first time to Turks and Caicos, and we usually like to travel around and see new places however this was one house that we agreed we will definitely be coming back to. Thank you so much Ramona for allowing us to use your perfect beach house!!!
Wonderful time at Barefoot Palms!!
The house is very much as it looks in the pictures. It was clean and comfortable and a 10-15 minute walk to beautiful Sunset beach in the Grace Bay area. This is definitely the side of the Island you want to be on. The Grace Bay beach area is 7 miles of beach so beautiful you are not sure it can be real. The sand is so soft and the water so clear it takes your breath away. The tiki bar was a lot of fun to hang around and the pool is lovely. There is a little cat that hangs around who is cute and sweet and becomes the house mascot. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking items and we never needed something we did not have. There are some spices and salt and pepper there for you to use. I really recommend to pack some pre-packaged food and snacks in your suitcase as food on the island is very, very expensive. I also recommend (Ramona the owner clued me in) you pack a bottle of alcohol, rum, vodka or the like as again it is very expensive on the island. By doing this, we saved a lot of money that we could enjoy on other things! The refrigerator has filtered water and makes plenty of ice. They also provide coolers and ice packs for a day on the beach. The TV was a bit confusing to use but they have tons and tons of movies to watch. They also provide beach chairs and beach umbrellas which were very nice. There is a washer and dryer but honestly we never used them. They provide plenty of beach towels but a few more bath towels would have been appreciated. The bedrooms were lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were very nice and there was plenty of hot water. They say there is a max on the electricity but we must not have gone over as we were not charged anything. I think we tried to turn out lights and did not go crazy with the A/C but we were not crazy or anything. We did a combo of eating in and eating out and were happy with the dining table and the picnic table outside. I guess there is a concierge, but honestly, she came at the beginning and we never saw or heard from her again. All in all the house was wonderful and I would give it my recommendation, Thanks!!
WOW!! This was hands down one of the best vacation rentals. After exploring the Island we LOVED coming back to Barefoot Palms and unanimously declared the location the best on the Island. The house layout was perfect and they had everything you needed to make your vacation complete. Access to the beach was awesome, we actually were picked up by Island Vibes for the 1/2 day snorkeling excursion!
Thanks for a wonderful vacation rental!
Great beaches and convenient location
Great overall stay. We stayed post hurricane and many places on island still doing work and renovations. House conveniently located near great beaches that are a 5 minute walk or 2 minute drive. On arrival, met at house for instructions and keys. Very responsive and assisted with small issues- security system beeping and payment needed for cable (both fixed right away after a quick text message). Pool and outdoor space nice. Beach chairs, umbrella, and small coolers available for use at beach. Good supply of towels in bathrooms and for pool/beach. Hope to visit again. Recommend highly!
