September 23, 2017 - Post Hurricanes Irma and Maria Status:

Hello and thank you for finding us on VRBO! I am happy to say that we were minimally impacted at Aqua Vista and Providenciales generally compared to our sister nations further to the east and south. Think about this, 2 days after Irma, the airport opened up, gas stations were open for business, the water companies were making water and power was restored to 50% of the island of Providenciales. Fast forward 2 weeks and after another storm we are not lacking in many ways and now it is just a matter of the supply ships continuing to come regularly so we can get on with it. The fact that we are a young nation and tourist destination with modern buildings and building codes has allowed us to get back on our feet that much quicker.

Aqua Vista lost some of her concrete roof tiles during Irma and we have embarked on fixing the roof this coming week now that Hurricane Maria has left us and did not amount to any further damage. Our lovely landscaping and natural hillside forest was the most impacted but nature is a wonderful thing and once the brush is cleared the leaves will come back and fill in quickly. I see already blooms coming out on the bouganvillea in our gardens. We are so lucky to be in this situation given the strength of Hurricane Irma and I can honestly say that in a few short weeks it will be back to normal here.

If you are considering coming to stay in Aqua Vista, PLEASE DO! We will be ready for you and you will have a great vacation here. Most, if not all, restaurants and excursion companies will be open and fully functional for you and your family to support. People ask what they can do to help and I tell them the best thing you can do now is come and spend your hard earned vacation dollars this year in the villas, hotels, restaurants and tour operators to help to recover that much quicker.

Thank you again for finding us here. If you have any specific questions, please email me directly at patrick@tropicsltd.com. We hope to see you here enjoying our Beautiful By Nature, Turks and Caicos Islands, gorgeous Grace Bay and our lovely Aqua Vista!

Thank you for finding Aqua Vista on Blue Mountain, the highest vacation rental property in Turks and Caicos! Marvel at the beauty of Grace Bay and the 12 mile long beach from our front deck and choose which beach access you will explore that day.

This Villa is perfect for groups and families up to 8 people looking for a tropical sanctuary with breathtaking views. Tastefully decorated and updated in 2016, Aqua Vista offers guests 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and den. Built into the hillside of Blue Mountain, it is surrounded by mature lush vegetation and landscaping. The views of the north shore of Turks and Caicos islands from North Caicos to Northwest Point on Providenciales are truly mesmerizing! Sitting on the shaded front deck, cooled by ocean breezes and an icy drink while gazing at the ocean might change "happy hour" into Happy Afternoon! It might even change your life!

Blue Mountain is perfectly situated in the middle of Providenciales close to all that this island has to offer. Aqua Vista is close to all of the beach accesses across this beautiful island whether you want to wander Grace Bay Beach on the hotel strip or see the kiteboarders on Long Bay Beach or marvel at the calm warm waters of Sapodilla Beach or Taylor bay on the southwest side. Restaurants and shopping are only a short drive away as well. You will want to rent a car to get around but there is no need for 4 wheel drive as you will be on paved roads to the top of Blue Mountain. A 1 minute walk up the road from Aqua Vista is the top of Blue Mountain (at a soaring 150 feet) and a viewpoint that offers a full 360 degree view of the island of Providenciales, and could be your first excursion to get the "lay of the land".

You will enjoy the privacy and comfort of the pool area - this oasis will likely be a focal point of your vacation at Aqua Vista. The pool is surrounded by loungers and umbrellas. The gazebo offers a cool, shady place to watch the kids or enjoy a beverage as you gaze at the turquoise ocean beyond. You'll enjoy the fridge conveniently located in the lounging area as well as an outdoor rainshower to rinse off.

The living room area opens onto the deck on 3 sides with 8' tall sliding doors to let the breezes flow through. The seating is comfortable and modern with an island flare. The 55" HDTV, Bluetooth sound system and digital cable channels will keep you entertained in the evening if you find yourselves inside.

There are options for dining inside or outside on the front deck. Both areas provide seating for at least 8 people. A Weber BBQ located on the top deck will keep the grillmaster in your group very happy providing everyone with gourmet grilled meals.

For excursions to our renowned beaches, we provide you with coolers, folding beach chairs, beach umbrellas a few floaty noodles and beach toys for the kids. We will advise you of our favourite beaches and restaurants close by to make your day in the sand and sea that much better. Then hurry back for happy hour on the front deck and watch the changing colours of the surf and sky before dinner.

Aqua Vista is set up for you to enjoy, make memories and to be your island home away from home. We look forward to welcoming you back vacation after vacation.

As Aqua Vista is a new property to the Provo vacation rental market, we are just embarking on our first season of operation. Please see the other 3 properties under our management on VRBO, read the reviews of our past guests and you will understand how important it is to us to provide a fantastic vacation experience. We will do the same at Aqua Vista for you!:

About Patrick Staples

When we married while vacationing in Antigua, my wife and I started to dream of how we were going to one day live in the Caribbean. After that first warm trip together we traveled to Maui, Dominican Republic, BVI, St. Lucia, Barbados, Mexico and a few other warm destinations until we found Providenciales. We were immediately stricken with the innumerable colors of the water and practically deserted beaches and knew that this was it.

After two weeks of playing in 85 degree ocean water, we went home, listed the house, sold the cars and most of our furniture and moved to 'Provo' 3 months later - just to try it out for a few months. That was over 13 years ago and we have not regretted our decision.

As simple as it sounds, I enjoy getting up in the morning and not having to decide how many layers of clothes I will need to walk the dog! I don't own 4 seasons of clothes like I did at home and I can BBQ any darned day of the week. I traded my skis for sailing which I can also do any day of the week!

Above all else though, we have grown in so many directions due to the friends we have made and the many, many people we have met from all corners of the earth. We cherish our local island friends and the fact that they have welcomed us to live here and make our new lives in their country. We encourage you as visitors to say Hello to a Turks Islander at every opportunity and enjoy the friendly smile and humor that will undoubtedly follow. Enjoy your time in our island home - we are delighted to share the experience with you.

Patrick Staples purchased this villa in 2016

Why Patrick Staples chose Providenciales - Provo

When we first arrived on Providenciales we started to map out where we would like to live and created the "Dream Property" list and the "Reality" list of where we would like to live versus where we could afford to live. This Villa, "Aqua Vista" was on that Dream Property list all of those years ago. We fell in love with Blue Mountain as one of the highest points on Providenciales at approximately 150' above sea level, and when we first drove past the driveway of Aqua Vista, we fell in love with the property.

Fast forward over a decade later and the original owners of Aqua Vista who built this unique and stunning Villa put it up for sale and we jumped at the opportunity to own our dream property.

Our goal is to create a modern island home that maximizes the view of the incredible Grace Bay Reef and Atlantic ocean beyond. As Aqua Vista is built on the side of Blue Mountain, practically every inch of the property has a view of the ocean and takes advantage of the cooling ocean breezes that billow up the hillside.

We are thrilled to own this beautiful Villa and we hope that you will come and experience the beauty, serenity and privacy Aqua Vista offers!

What makes this villa unique

Aqua Vista is built on the north side of Blue Mountain with spectacular 180 degree aqua ocean views and cooling easterly breezes that flow throughout the Villa year round, all in a very lush private setting. It is literally the second highest home in Providenciales at about 130' above sea level.

Getting to Aqua Vista from the airport is about a 7 minute drive. Blue Mountain is centrally located so getting to any of Providenciales' restaurants, beaches, groceries and amenities is easily achieved in a 10 minute drive on paved roads. Once you turn into the stone gate of Aqua Vista the view of the ocean, the natural vegetation and complete peace will welcome you "home".

You will enjoy the many comfortable gathering areas on this property as it is set on a hillside.. The pool is in a completely private setting with a lounging gazebo offering shade and comfort poolside and surrounded by mature trees and great views of paradise.

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from Provo. We absolutely loved this house. It is very secluded and quiet on Blue Mountain, but only a 10-15 minute drive to great restaurants, shopping, and the best beaches we've ever enjoyed. We hit the beach every day of our trip. The views are just unbelievable. There is a huge amount of deck space, with plenty of it covered for sitting and reading or enjoying coffee or a meal while taking in the spectacular views. The pool is very nice. We used it daily, including the covered space adjacent. The way the house is laid out gives the bedrooms some privacy from each other. The kitchen is roomy and equipped with everything you need. There are some very nice beach chairs and umbrellas and a cooler, which we used every day. The owner, Pat, is a super nice guy. He met us at the airport and led us back to the house, gave us the grand tour and some instructions for various features, and marked on the map some restaurants and other things he recommended. We had a minor maintenance issue the first night, and he came over and took care of it very quickly. We would absolutely love to stay at Aqua Vista again.

Our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Aqua Vista with friends (total of four adults, one teen, two kids) and fell in love with this home even more. Not only are the views incredible and make it easy to spend a full day enjoying the natural hues of blue of the ocean along with the soothing caribbean breezes but the home's triple decks provide ample space for everyone to find their own private spot. Thanks to the brand new spiral staircase, there is a great flow from upper deck to lower decks and pool with easy access throughout the home. AC is private, clean, spacious, renovated and centrally located with short drive to beaches in all directions. We've rented three homes with Patrick (owner) and stayed at various hotels/condos over the years and this is by far, our favorite. Patrick is helpful, friendly and always ready to offer advice for a great vacation. Don't hesitate to make it part of your escape.....just save some time for our return.

Beautiful and easy

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently returned from Provo. Staying at Aqua Vista was such a pleasure. Patrick is a wonderful host who wants what is best for his visitors including providing a great place to call home and an opportunity to experience what the region has to offer. I recommend getting a car and following his recommendations. With Patrick's assistance the rental car pickup was fast and efficient. We spent plenty of time traveling to the beaches around Provo and also a half day snorkeling/boat charter. You could easily spend some full days at the house pool, but the island has so much to offer it's a must to go explore. We traveled with two young children. With both the pool and all the room to move about on the decks at the house the kids and everyone else was always occupied. Look forward to next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review Sean! I was so happy to see the 5 of you down by the pool when I dropped in to check on you! Your 2 boys must have been exhausted every night after spending most of each day in the pool! I so happy you all had a good time at Aqua Vista and I hope you will come back for another relaxing vacation again some day. Pat

OMG AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful, and the views are breathtaking. From the minute we pulled up to the house we were in love, the house is newly renovated and it has everything that you might need. It feels like home away from home no pun intended. It is minutes from everything, grocery stores, restaurants and the beach. Patrick was extremely nice, he met us at the airport drove us back to the house, gave us a tour and some advice on where to go to eat and shop and events that were going on during the week and after that left us to enjoy our vacation. We stayed for 11 days and he set up a mid week cleaning where they came and cleaned the kitchen and bathrooms, supplied new towels and fresh linens. My family really enjoyed their stay at this house and I'm actually planning on another trip either with my family or friends and we would love to stay here again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Pat we just want to let you know what a great time we had at Aqua Vista. The villa has everything you could want plus more, the view is breathtaking the picture's on the internet do not do it justice. You can just sit on the deck and watch the blue water break when it hits the reef and the boats go in and out of Turtle Cove Marina, plus you can see Grace Bay at a distance. One night it was so amazing that we saw two sets of fireworks coming from Grace Bay and the park at the entrance of Turtle Cove, it was like we had front row seats, in the morning the sunrise was unbelievable . You could literally just sit on the deck all day and not be bored. There was always something to watch and always a breeze, it was so relaxing that you really do loose track of time. There is just so much to do or not to do, one week is not enough. The second best part is Pat , he made us feel welcomed the minute we walked in the villa with refreshments waiting after our long journey. He knows the island inside and out that all you had to do was tell him what you want to do and he would tell you where to go and it will be perfect. Pat you made our vacation unbelievable BUT the view is really the best. We are already planning a two week vacation for later this year, We will be back

Owner's Response: It was so nice to see you down here again Ed and Veronica and this time at our new Aqua Vista. I am so happy you felt at home there and I wish I could say it was me who arranged the fireworks but just the luck of the draw! I haven't been able to watch the Grace Bay Fireworks on New Year's from the Aqua Vista yet but that will be incredible for whoever books that week I am sure! I am just so glad you enjoyed our new vacation experience and thrilled to know you are coming back in October! See you then! Pat

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view.

We enjoyed three generations at the house. Grandparents, us, and our 6 and 3 year olds. We loved the view, kids loved the pool, grandma and grandpa enjoyed how easy everything was.

Patrick did a great job of making things easy and comfortable for us.

Would absolutely stay here again.
