About Ritama Davidson

We are authors, self development trainers and avid kiteboarders who wanted to live more simply and close to nature. Living down here is just incredible!

Ritama Davidson purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Ritama Davidson chose Providenciales - Provo

We looked around the world for a place that was quiet and natural, yet easily connected to the wider world, and had a good infrastructure. Provo has all of that. And Long Bay is a stunning beach with gentle and warm waters, gorgeous colors and peaceful ambience.

What makes this cottage unique

There is something about jumping into this ocean that in 10 minutes so deeply relaxes us.

A Tropical Oasis - You will never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary Oct 16-21, 2016. The cottage and pool are beautiful. There's everything you could need. Ritama welcomed us and showed us around the property. She has put a lot of thought and care into the property. The cottage is just a short, peaceful walk through lush vegetation. Long bay beach is a natural beauty. We actually liked it better than Grace Bay. More privacy and calm, shallow sparkling turquoise water. Just stunningly clear and clean. The cottage was well appointed, even had a high end blender. The bed was very comfortable and the ceiling fans and A/C worked great. We BBQ'd one night and enjoyed having soooo much privacy while we sat by the pool relaxing in the evening. Spa Tropique gave us pool side massages which was a real treat while listening to the birds and natural sounds. It was a dream come true. The cottage and pool are surrounded by beautiful, blooming plants and trees. It feels like a real tropicial oasis. Hope to return someday and will absolutely stay here again! Thanks Ritama for sharing such a special place with us!

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

Esencia cottage and the entire property are amazing. As nice as the pictures are, the property is even more beautiful. My wife and I came here for our 25 anniversary and can't wait to return with our children to show them how beautiful it is! The water is amazing. You are only an 8 minute drive to Grace Bay and all of the food and shopping. Ritama was a pleasure to work with booking the trip! Just a great vacation!

Vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa team did an excellent job. They were responsive when they needed to be and allowed us to enjoy the fabulous amenities. Everything was clean and well maintained. Bedding is high quality, clean and new The best vacation I ever took - thank you. I am relaxed beyond belief and ready to get "at it" once I am home. Long Bay Beach is by far the best beach on Provo - Grace is ok but nothing compares to LBB. Find the local fish market - buy your lobster tails there....75% less than anywhere else. Grilled everyday and its worth it. Try the Mahi Mahi at Coco Bistro - make reservations BEFORE you arrive on island.

Could've been great without the roaches!

  • 2 of 5

We rented the cottage for 10 days. The privacy of the cottage one can't compare. It's big enough for a couple, it's just like the pictures online. The safe isn't your normal standards(can't fit a 13" lap top). It's more for jewelry, which no one brings on vacation. The beach access through the jungle is nice. We preferred Long Bay than Grace Bay beach for its seclusion. It's not crowded & sometimes it seemed we were the only two there. The place is very very quiet. The gym is old with no AC but numerous fans which worked fine. God forbid you have the music loud while exercising, Amano (employee)will come & tell you to turn it down when your the only one in the little gym that no one hardly uses!! The disappointment was when we found 4 huge roaches in the kitchen on two nights of our stay, even with our cleaning & picking up after ourselves. The owners try to blame it on the property being in the Caribbean, but we have never encountered this where we have rented other villas. Out of our 10 day stay we only got housekeeping once! Not a thorough job either for $100 for 1 hour of cleaning. It shows the lack of cleaning there is between rental stays.!! I would suggest a thorough house cleaning especially in the kitchen inside the cabinets the barbeque grill & where the garbage is after each rental stay and at least twice for house cleaning during a renters stay no matter the length of stay when you have a kitchen. !!!!

I talked to Fatima extensively before travel date, and was disappointed with her lack of greeting (we had to tell her employee we wanted to see her a few days later) when we arrived and departure. I have not heard from her to ask if we had a nice stay & what needs improvement.

The road to the villa is bumpy as hell. This has nothing to do with the owners, but from another reviewer this has been going on for quite some time.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeannette, we are a boutique resort and take the experience of our guests to heart. That is why, when you requested to meet me I made the effort to come and talk with you and had an authentically nice feeling with you. You expressed how wonderful the place was and the most private place you have ever been. About the bugs, we brought immediately the exterminator. Every month the cottage and the surrounding gets diligently sprayed.  As sound travels a lot here we ask all our guests to play music so just they can hear it and not everybody else. We hope to give all our guests as much as possible a quiet and serene experience. We are sorry that something upset you and we are listening attentively to your comments. We are committed to make an even greater effort with our maintenance and housekeeping team to uphold the standards we are striving for so that our guests can have the best vacation they have been dreaming of.  Ritama

Perfect honeymoon villa!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed at the cottage at Villa Esencia for our honeymoon, and we cannot recommend it enough. It was absolutely perfect. From our little private pool, to the serene and basically empty beach, to the little path through the "jungle" to get to the beach, everything was exceptional. The staff was extremely accommodating to our specific needs. Armano was available at all times to help us with anything we needed, and Ritama was welcoming and understanding to our needs. This villa is an incredible place to go for a couple that wants their privacy, as well as anyone else that would enjoy the perfect beach vacation.
