Grace Bay Beach oceanfront
Our first trip to Grace Bay and it won't be our last! This condo is in the perfect spot on the perfect beach. The condo is well equipped, nicely decorated and very comfortable. You cannot get any closer to the beach. The pictures do not do it justice. The staff at Villa Renaissance is friendly and very helpful.
There is no need for a car. Plenty of restaurants (The Vix was our favorite) and the grocery store are all in walking distance, and the excursions will pick you up on the beach or in the Villa's lobby. We highly recommend Villa Renaissance, and unit 105 is outstanding. We will definitely be back!
This was our first time in Turks and Caicos. Of course, we had our concerns about the glowing reviews and wonderful photos used to promote this property. But, I am happy to report, that it is all true. Villa Renaissance is the perfect size. Not too big where you can get lost amongst the crowds and not too small where you feel isolated. The best part is how incredible friendliness we found with the team at Villa Renaissance. Everyone knew our names. We couldn't walk anywhere without someone calling us out by name to say hello. They bent over backwards to make sure all of our needs were met. They helped with restaurant recommendations, accommodations for water activities, and made sure our drink glasses were never empty. The friendliness was contagious as every guest became familiar to us and friendly conversations were had at the pool and the beach. It is the best location in the community. You can walk out the back patio and you are steps away from the beach. Or, you could walk out the front door, and you are steps away from a great pool. The condo was clean, neat, very comfortable, and very nicely decorated. Safety was never a concern. Half the time we left the door unlocked and naively left money and valuables in night stand drawers without a worry. The condo was great, the staff was great, and Mel and Nicole were great. My only non A+ rating would be for the fitness center. If you are a fitness nut, you too will find it small and outdated, but functional. I did find a gym right across the street though, and I did a few days of their group fitness classes where the instructor was very good. You will be extremely pleased with Villa Renaissance. We had an extraordinary stay!
This was our second stay at Villa Renaissance,first time in this unit and it is absolutely gorgeous! The unit was spacious,spotless and beautifully decorated. The view from the villa is so pretty that it almost looks fake. The water of Grace Bay truly is turquoise. This is a first floor unit so in addition to the standad patio we also had a patio with two chaise lounges and direct access to the boardwalk to the beach. One afternoon the wind kicked up at the beach and we came up to the villa and spent the afternoon in the loungers,perfect! The location of Villa Renaissance is great for walking to the store(Graceway Gourmet). Smoothies from Giggles ice cream (just a short walk past the Seven Stars roundabout) are a must have along with morning walks down to Caicos Bakery for their fresh made donuts. Big Als in the Saltmills has the best burgers (and they will deliver), Coco Bistro is a favorite for dinner and Hemmingways at the Sands resort is a beautiful beach walk away for a great breakfast or dinner. Allied management manages both units that we have rented and they have been a pleasure to work with! We are looking forward to returning next year.
This was truly one of the best vacation spots we have ever been to. The villa was immaculate! Even more beautiful than the pictures. There was no need for a car. All of the restaurants were within walking distance, as well as the grocery store. The resort was in a fantastic location. You walk out of the front of the villa and you are at the beautiful pool. When you walk out the back of the villa, you are steps to the beautiful beach. We will definitely return for another vacation!! Many thanks to Nicola and Mel for their warm hospitality!!
We spent Christmas week 2013 in this fantastic condo at this fantastic resort and the family (teenage girls 19 & 17) had a great time! The resort is small but impeccably kept and the condo is beautiful, it was spotless upon our arrival and the photos portray the property very accurately. We hesitated about booking a first floor condo when we were searching but we were so glad that we did as the view was amazing and we never used the front door and instead just wandered in and out of the condo through the glass sliders and down to the beach or pool. We never locked the condo and felt safe the whole time (wallets, passports and iPads kept in the safe just to be sure).
We were met upon arrival at the resort and shown to our condo and we were never disappointed for a minute during our stay. Mel was fantastic and made us comfortable immediately, dinner and tour reservations were made for us, a prepaid cell phone was supplied at no charge and the condo was cleaned perfectly every day. In fact, their was a problem with our cable box when we tried to watch TV and Mel had it replaced within two hours on a Sunday afternoon!
You absolutely do not need a car at this resort! You can walk to numerous great restaurants, bars, tours and the local IGA grocery store is a 5-10 minute walk and has everything you would find at your local supermarket in the US. The prices are higher and knowing this in advance we brought an extra suitcase full of boxes of cereal, jars of peanuts, snacks for the kids, etc. and this was a great call!
The beach at Grace Bay is the best I have ever enjoyed and I have been to plenty all over the world. We walked the beach for hours, laid in the beach chairs and read and if it got too hot we laid by the pool, which was never crowded, and snoozed.
Our kids were never bored (although we rarely left the resort except for dinners, tours and the IGA) and told us it was their best vacation ever. We would re-visit T&C, this resort and this condo without hesitation! I own two beach condos in the US on VRBO and I felt guilty during our stay that I do not provide as much luxury to my guests as this condo provided to my family and myself!
We stayed at this Villa from Dec 28th until Jan 4th. When we arrived we were greeted by Mel who was wonderful, and after a short wait while they finished cleaning, we were taken to the Villa.
It was exactly as the pictures show. Beautiful. The view is amazing. Tennis rackets, snorkeling gear and bikes are at your disposal. They also had a cooler that we took to the beach everyday.
Be aware that groceries and food are very expensive on the island. We tended to buy wine, beer and coconut rum from the wine and spirit store around the corner instead of buying drinks at the pool bar. We also ate breakfast and lunch in the Villa and only went out for dinner.
Our best meal was at Bay Bistro. The best beach front restaurant was Hemmingways and the best unusual location was Coco Bistro which is under numerous coconut trees. It was also the most expensive! The best bar is The Sandbar which is only 2 minutes from the Villa.
If you need a taxi it will cost you a minimum of $5 a person. So even a short 5 minute ride for a family of 4 will cost you $20 plus tip. No charging by the mile on this island. You can walk to a lot of places though which is a bonus.
Grace Bay beach was outstanding. Always a breeze and the water is crystal clear. If you go in December the water is a little cooler than usual and also a little choppy because of the wind. It didn't bother us though. The wind kept you from getting too hot. Walking the beach is fun and you can access a number of restaurants that way.
The pool area is lovely and great it you have little kids. Loungers are always available. We have teenagers so the beach was our daily ritual. If you get to the beach and don't see any beach chairs available don't worry. The staff will help you set up however many you need, (for a tip). We only had to do this for two days when the resort was at it's busiest.
Excursions are also expensive but worth it. Parasailing is a must. Take a trip on the mini submarine if you don't like scuba diving. It's a great way to see the reef. Mel will help you make any reservations.
If you are lucky enough to be at the villa over New Year's Eve you will have plenty to do. Their are numerous firework displays and bonfires along the beach.
The Grace Bay Area is very safe and clean. The people are all very friendly and all speak English. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. It was hard to leave. We will definitely be back.
