About DEBBI

We purchased this villa because of its great location and the views. We walk to the marina and enjoy all the restaurants, bars, people and boats.

We have an acre of land right on the ocean. Some days you will only see a few people on the beach.

DEBBI purchased this villa in 2000

Why DEBBI chose Providenciales - Provo

We looked at a number of islands, as well as Florida. The waters and beaches on Provodenciales are simply ...beautiful. I now know why Grace Bay has been rated as one of the top ten beaches in the world. We think it is the best in the world

What makes this villa unique

The villa embraces you and you instantly feel like you are on an island and you just relax and enjoy the beauty of the location. The best snorkeling is a directly in front of the villa or a 5 min walk down the beach.

Privacy, but with everything you could ever want within 5 mins.

You can also have maid service daily or have shopping done, and have meals prepared for you. It is your choice!

Great location - perfect spot for relaxation, snorkeling with private pool

  • 4 of 5

We visited in early July and chose this villa for its fabulous location and views ! It's directly on the beach - you can relax by the pool in shade and you have your private tiki hut on the beach! There are stunning views from the house and the pool ! We loved that you could walk right out to some of the best snorkeling in the world. We would walk a short way to Bight Settlement reef and then float on down with the current and saw all kinds of amazing, colorful fish - sharks, barracudas, turtles, angelfish, snapper, stingrays, tangs, etc. It was amazing - i think we snorkeled all 7 days morning and afternoon. The house has a cottage, beachy feel - great AC in the bedrooms - the main house gets a bit warm in the late afternoons but there are ceiling fans and floor fans and the wonderful sea breezes. We had a small issue with the outside shower that the housekeeper had fixed the day we notified her of it. We walked to Turtle Cove several times for dinner and easily walked to the fish fry at Bight Park on Thursday night. Overall we loved the trip - location, location, location !

Perfect Location for relaxed vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this villa and were not disappointed. The villa is not luxurious, but who cares... it is right on the beach with stunning views of the ocean. We only used the top floor of the house, mainly just to sleep, because with what is out the back door you have no reason to stay inside at all. The pool area was very nice and covered when we got too hot at the beach or wanted to relax in the shade. Prior to renting we looked at many villas and this one was the best priced, so we were a little worried.... but no reason to worry. It is literally right on the beach (which is gorgeous white sand) and the water is beautiful as well. Right off the beach is amazing snorkeling and you are a short walk to the grace bay resorts. Every morning our wives walked down the beach to one of the resorts for yoga class which was maybe a ten minute walk. It is great being a short walk to Turtle Cove, we walked there almost every night for dinners and drinks... several great places to eat in Turtle Cove and an easy safe walk away.

Only negatives were when we arrived the villa was very hot and sticky, started sweating as soon as we walked in and get unpacked. Once we had windows and doors open for awhile it cooled down. Villa only had a/c in the bedrooms which kept those rooms nice and cool for sleeping. Also, one night we wanted to watch a basketball game but couldn't get cable tv to work (pretty sure was user error)... we just walked to Turtle Cove and watched there instead...no big deal.

Overall would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a beachfront location away from the resorts but still close enough to walk anywhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful comments on our villa. It is a great place!! We have enjoyed it for many family vacations over the years. Sorry it was not opened up when you arrived. Our caretaker usually has all the gentle westernly breezy going thru the villa. We are also adding a new A/C soon. So glad you had an amazing vacation! Debbi

Well kept, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We looked at every villa before choosing this one. What a great pick! The villa is beautiful, clean and very well kept. The owners did not skimp on bath towels, bedding, beach towels, cookware, dishes, etc. It is nicely decorated with a great beach feel and perfect for relaxing. The pool area is great with the big shade cabana and views of the beach. The landscaping is very colorful and lush. The cabana on the beach is a great addition. When i walked by other villas, the people staying there had to drag out various chairs to the beach. So nice touch!

Cari came and cleaned midweek and did a great job. AFter watching her scrub, you know that it is very very clean there. When we were leaving, she was back as well as the gardner, pool person, etc. Like a well oiled machine. She also knew I was a bit nervous about walking in the dark to the marina and when we arrived, there were 4 new flashlights. Kudos Cari!

That being said, as is stated, only the bedrooms are air conditioned. If you are traveling in the warmer months as we did, the living areas/kitchen are extremely warm. Even with all windows/doors open and fans going, it is stifling.

Also if you have little ones or elderly, access to the bottom floor bedrooms is by a narrow spiral staircase. When arriving, you should carry your bags to the side door on the bottom level otherwise you will taking bags up the front staircase then trying to get them down a narrow spiral case.

Construction is on going. It doesn't look like its going to end for a very long time. It did not bother us though. The workers do more sitting around and arguing with each other than working!

Having TV's in each bedroom would be nice.

Thanks Cari and Debbie!

Great place - beware of construction though.

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 2 other married couples and two other siblings stayed at Bella Sur Mer for a week. The location is right on the beach and you have your own little private pool that has great seating in the shade if you need it. The caretaker came once during our stay to clean which is really nice. Each room has it's own new A/C unit that worked perfectly. The kitchen is stocked with all the tools you need to cook if thats what you plan to do for meals. Lots of seating for everyone if you want to relax in the house too. The snorkeling is the best! The reef directly in front of the house was great; saw huge grouper, huge lobster, starfish and lots of other fish, big and small. If you walk out to the beach and take a left, walk down about 1/2 mile (where the white stair case is at another house) there's another phenomenal reef, about 40 feet deep, we saw huge sea turtles, enormous eagle rays, large sting rays, large barracuda and many other species of fish in all shapes, sizes and colors! No need to waste money on snorkeling cruises, the best is right out your back door!! Its very windy on this side of the island so the ocean is very choppy and made it tiresome to swim through all the time, but it is well worth it and great exercise. The one negative is that there are some local boaters who disregard the boat channel markers and drive right through the reef at full speed (they come from the marina and head east to the resorts to take people tubing, etc.) so that was worrisome at times. Also, be aware, that there is construction still going on right next door. An earlier review stated this back in August of 2013 and I had figured by now it would have been finished. Not so. There is the main house and two smaller homes, maybe a third being constructed at this site. There was the usual jackhammer, sawing, pounding etc. sounds that was not fun to hear while trying to relax. They start at 7:30 and usually done by the end of the day, they also work weekends. I'm guessing its taking so long because the construction workers are on "island time." From the looks of it, could be another year and half or so before the construction is done. Another thing was our water was shut off without notice. I called the caretaker, who called the water company, who said it would be on in an hour; I'm guessing, again, that was "island time" because it didn't come back on until 6 hours later. Other than those things, the location is great and it was affordable.

Perfect Beachy vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I just spent our pre-Wedding honeymoon in the Turks and Caicos Islands at a villa Bella Sur Mer. It was the perfect location to regroup and relax from the stresses of wedding planning. The house was in a beautiful location only a few steps away from the beach and Smith's reef. Snorkeling has never been so easy or convenient with it being just steps from your back door. The house has a private sun hut on the beach that is perfect for sunbathing or if a little shade is needed. It helps make the perfect day at the beach. Another great thing about this house is the private pool with a spectacular view of the ocean and perfectly placed gazebo located over the pool which allows for shade in half of the pool in the late afternoons. The landscaping is great and was home to around one hundred little yellow butterflies. It was beautiful. Besides being located right on the beach it is was just a short walk to Turtle Cove Marina where there are several good restaurants and a coffee shop. Overall entire villa was able to provide a quiet beach and pool day, with only a short walk to some fun night life. We came back rested, tan and relaxed.

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Sur Mer is situated in the perfect location on Providenciales. The villa is just a few steps from the white sand beach and clear blue water of Grace Bay. Smith's Reef is directly in front, offering spectacular snorkeling. Turtle Cove Marina is a short stroll away and offers several restaurants, fishing charters, car rentals, and excursions.

The villa was spotlessly clean and neat for our arrival and the view of the ocean and the reef from the house immediately gets your full attention. The pool and gazebo also boast a jaw-dropping view and were sparkling clean and tidy. The pool area is well designed to offer either sunny or shady lounging and part of the pool is shady in the afternoon. The landscaping is lush and we constantly heard the chirping of many resident birds.

There is a construction site next door and the noise that accompanies building activities is, of course, unavoidable. The workmen did not start before 8 am and stopped at a reasonable time in the afternoon. Although the sounds of saws and drills and hammers are required, there was no loud blaring music or excessive yelling during the workday. We commend the workers for being as considerate as possible.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Bella Sur Mer and found the villa to be fully equipped and a great place to enjoy the sun, sand, and sea. We really hated to leave and we will surely return.

You can simply enjoy the turquoise waters or watch the yachts cut the reef as they head for the marina.
