Carpe Diem - 1000sqft, 1 Bedroom Condo, 4 min walk to the beach!

Despite Hurricane Irma, the world class beach is back to its original glory. The island's power is completely restored; Grace Bay and Carpe Diem is once again ready to provide your trip of a lifetime...

Carpe Diem is located in the heart of Grace Bay and is a short 15 minute drive from the airport. Our unit is fully updated and is located right on the ground floor; filled with of all the luxuries of home. While we are not located directly on the beach, we are a 4 minute walk to the public beach access.

We are the only unit in Carpe Diem that provides lounge chairs on Grace Bay beach; so you only have to carry the umbrella and cooler if you wish. We also provide fold-up beach chairs that you can bring with you to any other beach on the island.

Carpe Diem is within walking distance to everything that you need during your vacation; so you don't need to rent a car. The grocery store is 6 minute walk away and we provide a grocery cart & cooler bag. If you don't feel like cooking, there are over 30 restaurants within a short stroll. Neighbouring plazas host a variety of shops from cafes, art shops, clothing stores, and a even police outpost. The very popular dog rescue charity, Potcake Place, is also located just across the street in Salt Mills Plaza.

We have a local property manager that will meet you and assist you if issues arise. Before arriving, our guest will receive a detailed guest information package that will give you all the details that you will need for your stay including all access codes to get into the unit.

About Vanessa Baran or Bobby Kozjan

Bobby and I have been married since 2004 and have ventured around the world, until we fell in love with Turks and Caicos. We purchased here in 2012 and the rest is history....

Vanessa Baran or Bobby Kozjan purchased this condo in 2012

Why Vanessa Baran or Bobby Kozjan chose Grace Bay

We originally thought we wanted a condo right on the beach; but we found ourselves meandering up and down the beach and enjoying the different areas of Grace Bay. We spent a lot of time walking on Grace Bay Road; visiting the beautiful store fronts, going to the grocery store, or just grabbing an ice cream. We found that the Carpe Diem condo is ideally located in a central location; close enough to everything that you need.

Perfect condo in Grace bay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, the condo was clean, comfortable, zen like decor. Thrilled with the screened in porch and zero gravity chairs. Nice pool area with very few people around. Short walk to beach access and umbrella and beach chairs provided. It was a wonderful rental.

Great location and value

  • 4 of 5

The condo is very clean, and the use of larger scale paintings and furnishings makes the unit feel a little bigger than the 1 bedroom would suggest. The convenience to the Salt Mills shopping/restaurant area is the biggest plus with the condo along with the proximity to Grace Bay Beach. One of the beach chairs included in the photo of this property had a broken back so it would only lay completely flat vs. being adjustable at the angle you wanted, but there are two other chairs (a total of 4) chained together on the beach and the other 3 worked fine — although you will likely have to remind others that the chairs are the property of unit 102 as most days, people would shamelessly be using them as if they were their own.

The owners answered my questions when I emailed them promptly but there was some initial confusion about getting into the unit because they do not keep the information in VRBO app up-to-date, but rather rely on hard copy paper attachments that are emailed to you. So technically, the issue was mine but the instructions to access the unit including the pin code for the front door appear in the VRBO app for this property — it just wasn’t accurate, it was an older password that used to be correct, but they had since changed it and not updated the app. So take it from me, do not rely on the VRBO app for any relevant information for this unit., rather print old physical hard copies of documents the owners sends you — which seemed very 1990’s too us, but it is what it is. I couldn’t get it into the condo when I arrived because of this and didn’t have WiFi access to pull down the documents so it was a bit of a anxiety ridden 30 minutes until we learned from a local that the husband/wife that run Shay Cafe, adjacent to unit 102, are best friends with the owner of this condo, and they act as local concierges while in the rental. So once we found him, we were fine and he’s great.

Suggestions fo the owner:

1. This unit needs a SONOS speaker in the living room and in the master bedroom.

2. Two shower towels simply not enough. We were doing laundry every day so the owners could avoid renters driving up electrical bill by offering 4-6 shower towels.

3. Include two rolls of paper towels as part of the rental cost. Also include trash bags. Helps renters keep the place tidy upon arrival and not have to

4. dark out roller shade in Master bedroom. The pull shut dark out drapes have a big gap in center when closed so doesn’t do the job.

Carpe Diem unit 102..1 word beautiful. my husband n I stayed for our 10th anniversary and the unit had everything needed for a weeks stay. Vanessa n Bobby thank you so much for letting us use it. clean... lots of space ..very relaxing. in the perfect location for everything you need. we had a great time... went to the fish fry..parasailing.... conch shack... and the beach was abosolutely breath taking... we grilled on the grill that was provided.... and the in screened porch was great. we did have a car but it is really not needed cause everything is in walking distance. I would definately recommend this place for your stay and Carpe Diem. We will be back. Thank you Vanessa and Bobby for allowing us to stay at your condo.

Beautiful and comfortable...home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week-long stay on a beautiful island! The condo was extremely clean, comfortable, spacious, and had full amenities. The pool outside of our patio was quiet and clean and felt like a tropical oasis. Grace Bay Beach was only a few short minutes away and the most stunning beach I have ever seen in all of the Caribbean! We went out for dinner each night to explore all the various restaurants and bars that the town had to offer. Our favorite restaurants were Coco Beach and Bay Bistro, and our favorite bars were Infiniti Bar, Stelle Bar in the Gansevoort Hotel, and Somewhere in Coral Beach Resort. We also attended a local charity event hosted at the Palms Resort which was incredible. Sapodilla Bay beach is a quiet, idyllic, paradise and we spent the best day there at the beach with a picnic and floaties in tow. We drove there since we had rented a car for the week which is very affordable and I recommend that if you plan on seeing a lot of Providenciales, as long as you are comfortable driving on the left side of the road. Otherwise, Grace Bay town and beach which are all within walking distance will more than please. There are nearby cafes, shops, restaurants, bars, and a grocery store. If you are feeling adventurous then there are plenty of options such as snorkeling, parasailing, fishing trips, and more. I would highly recommend this condo and can't wait to go back! Turks and Caicos is my new favourite tropical destination!

Loved it so much I came back for more!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Carpe Diem 102 for my second time and it was as perfect as the first! I didn’t know what to expect visiting post hurricane Irma but I was pleasantly surprised that the condo was in great shape and the island seemed to be back to normal as well. The location is in a great spot, close to restaurants, shops and most importantly beautiful Grace Bay beach. The condo unit is clean, spacious and tastefully decorated and the screened in porch was great too and looked out onto the pool area and pretty gardens and palms. I loved my return visit to Carpe Diem and would definitely recommend it to everyone! I can’t wait to go back again soon and am already planning my next trip there!!!!
