About Vanessa Baran or Bobby Kozjan

Bobby and I have been married since 2004 and have ventured around the world together, 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 Providenciales - Provo

We originally thought we wanted a condo right on the beach. Well, after spending a week in Grace Bay, 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. During our stay in Provo we also frequented great areas such as Taylor Bay, Sapodilla Bay and Long Bay Beach to watch the kite boarders. We found that the Carpe Diem condo is ideally located in a central location; close enough to everything that you need.

You had me at vacation...

  • 5 of 5

Vanessa & Bobby,

We apologize for the late review. This was our first time in Turks and Caicos, and we absolutely fell in love with the island esp. Grace Bay. As soon as we got to Carpe Diem, we knew this would be our next vacation destination. First, the distance from the airport to the condo was in close proximity which allowed us more time to enjoy the beach than on a bus for hours. Thank you for recommending us to rent a car which was cost effective and allowed us to tour the island.

Carpe Diem was the whole package. The location was within minutes to the beach and close to all amenities including groceries, pharmacy, shops, restaurants and cafés.

Your pictures do no justice to how beautiful your condo really is. Your attention to detail helped us feel at home and very relaxed. Our favourite part was relaxing in the very comfortable red rocker chairs. The pool was quiet, secluded and only steps away from the unit. Your condo was well equipped with all necessaties needed for a comfortable and stress free stay esp. the tassimo.

The beach.....WOW!!!! Simply breathtaking. It felt like our own little private island with our own personal chairs provided for us. From cooler, to beach umbrella, and snorkeling gear, you had it all. Vanessa and Bobby provided us with the most detailed care package that made our stay at ease and worry free.

Thank you for opening up your home to us and giving us one of the best vacations thus far. And thanks to Herb for an unforgettable breakfast at the wonderful Shay Café, which we highly recommend visiting.

If your looking for a vacation that will exceed all your expectations, then Carpe Diem is your place. And Vanessa and Bobby are the ones that can make it happen.

The perfect spot in Provo

  • 5 of 5

If you are going to Provo, then Grace Bay is the place to stay. Of the choices in Grace Bay, Carpe Diem is definitely in the ‘Sweet Spot’, within walking distance of many restaurants, as well as a grocery store, The Saltmill shops and most importantly, the amazing beach!

You will find that the unit has everything to make your stay enjoyable. If you prefer to ‘chill’ rather than go out to a restaurant, the unit has a well equipped kitchen and is very clean and modern. Even though it is a 1-bedroom unit, it is very roomy inside with a large open floor plan. The owners take great pride in keeping the unit in “like new” condition.

Herb and Andy, the local property managers, are a wealth of knowledge regarding all things Provo. We would recommend going to their café next door to grab a bite, and to meet some of the locals. Vanessa and Bobby also provide a very comprehensive welcome packet that includes many of their ‘secret’ beach locations, to include Coral Gardens, which is a must for those that like to snorkel. We saw a barracuda, spotted eagle ray, and sea turtles, all within 100 feet from the beach.

The beach for Carpe Diem is stunning and the water is the most beautiful that we have ever experienced in the Caribbean. As was mentioned in many of the other reviews, the beach loungers already in place, along with the cooler, umbrella, etc, all that is left is to relax. We highly recommend this unit and look forward to visiting again.

Gone too soon...

  • 5 of 5

Dear Vanessa and Bobby...sorry for the delay in our review (back to work)...We can see why you fell in love with T&C!!! Probably the most relaxing vacation we've had in years. Your beautiful condo and the overall environment in Turks allowed for this. We loved the ten foot ceilings and the simple tasteful decorating. The beach access we will never get tired of...that striking turquoise ocean is the highlight of every day! Your properly manager was very helpful and available (he has a great little café as well - Shea Café). Many great local pubs and eatery's (Danny Buoys, Big Al's, Jimmy's dive bar); not to mention the fabulous Lupo's (honestly the best lasagna I've ever eaten; in Turks, go figure...) we had a nice meal at the Seven Seas deck resto. We never got a chance to eat at Coco Bistro, but hear nothing but goods things (guess we'll have to go back). But of course it all comes back to the environment...the most beautiful water ever. We went snorkelling with the Island Vibes tour which was great (swam and filmed a spotted eagle Ray). Your condo lacked for nothing, and was immaculate upon arrival (and we also left it that way), was a great place, pool, BBQ, YOU've thought of everything - thank you (we would love to go back)...Rick & Donna (Hudson Quebec)

"Seize the Day" in Grace Bay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Carpe Diem and it surpassed every expectation we had and then some!!! The owners, Vanessa and Bobby have left no detail untouched, from the detailed information package, the clean, beautiful living space that is tastefully decorated, all the comforts of home from beautiful bedding to a fully stocked kitchen which included a tassimo machine and a nice blender to whip up some of our favourite frozen drinks. It gets better..they even thought of a cooler, beach chairs and umbrella to make our time at the beach the best ever! I also must mention that their unit is the most newly updated and renovated in the complex and it's one of the larger units, very clean and spacious. The screened in porch was a bonus and looks out onto nice lush gardens and is steps away from the pool that is surrounded by beautiful palm trees, we used the pool everyday and had it to ourselves everytime which was another added bonus! Carpe Diem's location can't be beat, it's proximity to beach, shops, restaurants are all only steps away. The beach was a 4 minute walk, 2 easy left turns off the complex and we were at the beach access. We felt very safe and secure at the condo as well due to the front security coded entry gates. We did rent a car for the duration of our stay because we wanted to explore the island but it is definitely not necessary. We loved our stay in Grace Bay so much and have never seen more beautiful beaches. We had the vacation of a lifetime! Thank you Vanessa and Bobby for paying so much attention to detail, your home in TCI is perfect and we will definitely be back!!!

This place is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, well furnished, and a great location. The owners go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. I really loved the zero gravity rocking chairs on the screened in porch. Very quiet at night, no noise we slept well. We will go back again for sure.

No words to explain how fabulous of a time we had

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I visiting the island to be married and we would do it all over again just to go back. The condo was right in the heart of town so we really didn't need a car to get around. The condo itself was perfect - from the decor, the cleanliness, the short proximity to the beach..I could go on. And if you didn't want to explore out for the day, there is lovely private pool to the condo where you can just relax at and/or grill your food on the bbq. Vanessa and Bobby the owners were super helpful....they even thought is providing you with a local phone that you "top up" to make local phone calls. We literally unpacked and felt right at home at this condo. We are planning another trip and definitely will be staying at this condo again. Thanks Vanessa and Bobby for making things so easy!
