Overview

Providenciales - Provo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Grace Bay Beach has recently been voted “The Best Beach in the World.” – The apartment is located just minutes away from Grace Bay beach... and it has one of the best views available on the island. The apartment features tile floors, with sliding doors, ceiling fans and A/C has now been installed - I should mention here that unlike most rental properties on the island, we do not charge extra for the A/C. There is a small kitchen; it has a queen size bed, closet and dresser. The living room area has a sofa with a TV. There is a large propane BBQ for your use at the apartment.

We are located just 5 minutes walk from Grace Bay beach, fishing and boating marina. All the leading hotels and restaurants in Providenciales are no more than 10 minutes drive from the apartment. The pro golf course is only 10 minutes from our location also.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Alastair

I have been on the island for over 11 years now and have my own small business here. After falling in love with the island my wife and I purchased this property and have built on the apartment which is rented out to people who want to experience a piece of paradise without having to pay expensive hotel prices.

Why Alastair chose Providenciales - Provo

This property was one of only a handful that filled our requirements which were the best view in town, secluded and within easy walking distance to the beach.

What makes this apartment unique

Best view on the island and very private. Not overlooked by any of the neighbors and generally very secluded and quiet.

Lovely Place!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a nice and clean place at a decent price, and stumbled upon Alastair's listing. It's a great value for the money - the apartment is very clean, cozy and has great views of Grace bay. The amenities provided are everything you might need, except you need to bring your own hair dryer. As we rented a car, we mostly went to the beach near Seven Stars resort - gorgeous beach and they have public parking. The IGA supermarket is only a 5 minure drive from the apartment, and the airport is about a 10 minute drive.

Highly recommend renting this place!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Alastair's place 2 weeks. Very clean apartment and excellent clean pool with amazing views on the ocean.

There is little to add to the other comments above: great location, 5 minute walk to the beach (which is not crowded) and good snorkeling.

It was really nice to have a BBQ to cook outside.

Would definitively go back to this place.

Great for the price!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed here the end of February-beginning of March making this my 3rd visit to Turks and Caicos over the past year and a half. This was my first time staying at this condo. For the price this place is awesome. After I booked my flight I then looked into lodging and was frightened by the cost of a hotel room. This was my first visit during "high season" and I am glad this condo was available. Its a 5 minute walk to Grace Bay Beach which the pool area has an amazing view of and about a 7-10 minute walk to several good decent priced restraunts. Unless you have a car and take it everywhere you will have to walk up and down a very steep hill so keep that in mind if you have any sort of mobility issues. I have always been to scared to rent a car but stepped out of my comfort zone and rented one for 2 days from Scooter Bob's which is about a 7 minute walk from the condo. We didn't have a reservation just walked in and was able to get a car both days. We did go right when they opened. I highly recommend and the driving is really not as hard as it appears. If I can do it you can do it. Trust me! There are some much more beautiful areas on other parts of the island. Taylor Bay was my favorite and breath taking along with Chalk Sound. All 3 times I have visited Grace Bay has been very rough. I'm convinced it never calms down! The beaches on the other side of the island were completely flat calm. Something to keep in mind if your there and Grace Bay is rough. The condo was clean as was the pool. The area felt safe. I prefer not to walk around after dark but felt completely safe sitting out on the patio furniture by the pool anytime. Also the wifi worked great. Alastair the owner was a very kind man and never bothered us. In fact we only saw him the first day upon arrival and the last and occasionally in the morning cleaning the pool. He also very quickly responded to my emails. The kitchen was adequate for making sandwiches but not much more is going to happen there. My only wish was that there would have been a place to make or keep ice frozen for some tropical drinks :) I had purchased small ice cube trays and brought along hoping the small freezer would freeze them but they never froze solid. Overall if your not interested in a $300+ a night hotel room which was the lowest cost room I could find when we went this place will not disappoint!

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. The owner was great. The view was excellent. Next time I'd get a rental car to explore the Islands, but if you don't mind walking 20 minutes, there are decent restaurants and a reasonable coffee shop (Green Bean). The beach was about a 5-10 minute walk, and it is not only beautiful, but there were not many people around, so it was great to relax. The pool is refreshing after a day at the beach or walking in the heat. The only grocery store on the island is about a 25 minute walk, so a car might come in handy, but if you're fit and can stand the heat, walking is an option. I suggest SharkBites (restaurant) fish n' chip night, and a pitcher of turks head amber.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week march 06 to march 16 2015 in Providenciales. The apartment was better than we expect and the pictures on Alastair's site was not truly representative of the reality. It's very clean, very cozy and relaxing. The view from the pool on Grace Bay is astonishing. The best quality price we found on the island. Alastair is a very nice men. He takes is business very seriously and it's shows. You can rent this apartment and you will be safe. We will for sure keep this place on ''Favorite''. Nous avons passé une superbe semaine chez Alastair. L'appartement était parfait, mieux que ce qui est représenté sur le site. Dans un quartier très sécutiraire, avec une vue incroyable sur Grace Bay, une piscine juste pour nous. Le rapport qualité/prix est extraordinaire. On ne peut trouver mieux sur l'ile. Nous recommandons fortement cet appartement.
