About Debbie Serju-Williams
I am a Jamaican, who came to the Turks and Caicos Islands in January 2004, when I was recruited by the government to teach History, Geography and Social Studies to high school kids. That same month I met my, now, husband, Maxfred, ‘Solie’ Williams, a Turks and Caicos Islander. He is a MEP contractor and businessman, who, as a a young man, played in the first local band, ‘Solie and the Gang.’ After my third year in Turks and Caicos, I retired from teaching to work with my husband. He loves being on the sea, and often goes out on his boat. He is a member of the TCI boat club. (Enquire about their annual Poker Run). I enjoy gardening, and though it is a bit difficult here, in Providenciales, because of the low annual rainfall, and sandy /marl stone soil, I get around by planting in pots and planters. together, we enjoy fishing, traveling and watching TV.

Why Debbie Serju-Williams chose Grace Bay
South Fleetwood accommodates 26! This is the perfect retreat for individuals, couples or family get aways! Tucked away, in this quiet cul-de-sac, it is the perfect spot for any vacationer. Needless to say, this is what pulled us to this piece of paradise, and what got us into purchase mode. Each unit, is set among lush tropical greenery, providing just enough privacy from the other guests. Located 5 minutes from the Grace Bay strip, guests staying here, can enjoy a 5 minutes stroll to the main thoroughfare...shopping, dining, banking, car rental, water sports equipment rental and much more. A car is, definitely, not a necessity, (unless you plan to do a tour of the island), as everything is literally, steps away. The Efficiency is located on the upper floor of the main building. Its doors open up to a view of the beautiful, well manicured lawn, as well as the pool. Not big enough for your family, our other units, on the same property, might just be what you are looking for: The Condo can accommodate 8; The Suite can accommodate 6; The Cottage accommodates 4; The Studio accommodates 2; The Efficiency accommodates 2; Villa Sky accommodates 2; Villa Coco accommodates 2. So, whether it's a large family vacation, a wedding party, a small family, a couple or an individual...check us out!

This is a beautiful property, given the time of year we were here we had it all to ourselves, very private. The grounds and pool are very well kept. We were a little confused trying to check in, no one was there, but it all came together. We will definitely come back, we loved it.
Nice Place to Stay
Overall, we really liked our stay at South Fleetwood. The property is very clean, quiet and well maintained. There is a private drive with plenty of parking and a great hammock at the pool. The beach chairs and umbrella were great when visiting some of the other beaches on the island. If you like a really cool room, recommend keeping the AC on at all times (the kitchen windows let in a lot of light).
When booking with vrbo, this property did not include a rental agreement. I sent several messages to the owner, called the owner and called vrbo to try to get it resolved - no luck. I have been scammed on vrbo before, so I was a bit nervous about this. It seemed like an easy thing to resolve - I ultimately decided to proceed without it. Everything ended up fine, but it was a weird snag.
Food prices are high on the island - if you're a coffee drinker, it's worth it to use the unit's coffee maker! ☕
Was a great palace to stay
Given different apartment at check-in and difficult communication with manager
The main issue I had was that upon arrival I was shown to a different apartment than the one I had booked. I had booked the efficiency and specifically wanted the efficiency because it had a balcony with lounge chairs and space to eat outside and you go to a place live T&C to enjoy the outdoors. I booked for 5 days and then agreed to extend by two, but triple checked that I would be staying in the efficiency for the whole period. The apartment I was offered was on the ground floor, dark and smelled mildewy. To their credit, after multiple difficult conversations, the manager offered me use of a larger apartment for three nights and then to move to the ground floor apartment but with a substantial discount. Still she refused to give us the apartment we had a contract for and would not explain why she couldn't move other people to the ground floor apartment. The larger apartment was quite nice and I can see that renting the whole complex for a larger group or family would be very nice.
The manager was frankly rude on the phone and hung up on me multiple times. This was a really expensive trip for us and I had been looking forward to it for such a long time that it really upset me to have to have difficult conversations over and over again.
The ground floor (studio apartment) needed updates and it was depressing to be in such a dark mildewy apartment on such a beautiful island.
Despite multiple requests no instructions were given about how to check-in and we were just lucky that the cleaning lady was there when we arrived. When we had to move from one apartment to the next we had to wait around for someone to come and this significantly ate into our day. When departing we had an early evening flight and the property manager refused to let us leave luggage on the property stating that they can't because they can't take liability for our belongings, even though we would have waived liability.
While it once was a cute beach house with a nice relaxed feel, the uncertainty about the booking for something we spent so much on and the truly unpleasant conversations with the manager really took away from our enjoyment of the trip.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 12 days. Accommodations were exactly as expected. Property is clean, quiet and secure. We walked everywhere and I didn't gain a pound. We sometimes felt like we were the only people there. Very nice and relaxing. Super close to beach, which was beautiful. I miss it already. Super close to town with lots of restaurants to chose from. We walked the beach and had lunch at some of the beach restaurants too. We rented bikes, we used Conch Cab several times, very similar to our Uber and super nice driver, that gave us some great tips!! We stayed in the efficient, which was perfect. I think a light over the sink would be helpful. I did have a little "sticker shock" over the price of food! Yikes.....but at least we know for the next time. Tamara our housekeeper was extremely nice and helpful. Its a beautiful island and I hope to come and visit again. This place was perfect! Thank you!

Welcoming, cozy, romantic, special, tranquil and rejuvenating are just a few of the words that have been used to describe South Fleetwood!
Enjoy the sound of waves, gently slapping on the shore, or the feel of the warm, tropical breeze on your skin while resting in your hammock, barbecuing steaks & sipping cocktails. Take exotic midnight dips in the pool, while gazing at stars.
Each villa is unique, each with king beds, large bathrooms, kitchens, dining/living areas and patio/courtyard/veranda. South Fleetwood is, undoubtedly, Providenciales' Best Kept Secret!
