Located in the quiet southwest corner of Providenciales near Sapodilla Bay, this charming villa is situated on the water's edge of scenic Chalk Sound National Park, a Turks and Caicos Island wildlife sanctuary.

Villa Poinciana is two separate but connected West Indies style wooden structures nestled comfortably into the natural flora and rock formations of the Chalk Sound shoreline. Poinciana comes with two kayaks for your enjoyment exploring the islands in Chalk Sound.

One building contains the living room, kitchen, dining room and a full bath; and the other, two large bedrooms both with en-suite baths creating a tree-house atmosphere that is enhanced by the connecting wooden walkways and surrounding tropical plants. The many decks and connecting walkways offer sweeping views of a brilliant turquoise blue water you will remember forever.

Poinciana can comfortably accommodate a party of 4. Additionally, there is a sleeper sofa in the living room appropriate for an extra child or adult. Despite Poinciana's Swiss Family Robinson appearance, it has the modern conveniences of flat screen TVs, wireless internet, and bluetooth audio speakers for your enjoyment.

About Colin

From Vineyard Style Magazine:

Colin Whyte, President of Martha's Vineyard Construction, left his happy childhood home near Biscayne Bay, FL to start a wonderful and varied journey that would one day lead him to sailboat summers, Martha’s Vineyard mansions and a company built from fortitude and perseverance. “I had enough support and stability at home that I could just go. I never knew that when I left home at age 16, I’d never be back again.” Choosing to go to an all boys boarding school in Tennessee, McCallie School taught hard lessons of discipline and survival. It was there that Colin made life-long friends and began to desire the mysteries that life and experience had to offer.

In hope of avoiding a sojourn in Vietnam Colin took off on his motorcycle, partnered with friends, and threw himself into education and small-time enterprises. Self-taught, he learned how to run a successful business from varied jaunts including: house moving, dictionary selling, surfboard renting, interning in the Senate, and—finally, construction clean up. Graduating from Brown University with a liberal arts degree led him to a winter at Law School, and a stint back at Brown Graduate School in art. “Applying to schools, I was really just a kid trying to stay out of Vietnam; little did I know, it was the motorcycle that would save me. A serious accident taught me the power of the motorcycle. My back was handed a lesson and Martha’s Vineyard became my home.”

Colin purchased this house in 1986

Tree House Atmosphere on Chalk Sound

Perfect Place to Enjoy Turks & Caicos

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a lovely time at this wonderful property in Turks & Caicos. Living right on the sound was beautiful with amazing views and a lovely all day breeze. The house both living and sleeping quarters are well appointed. The hosts were engaged and helpfully resolved any issues we had promptly. I would definitely recommend this property and location for anyone who wants to enjoy the island. Nearby Sapodillo beach was easy to walk to and always quiet and great for swimming.

Amazing view and great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented a lot of villas on various islands in the past but Villa Poinciana is at the top of our list for all the right reasons. The views are stunning. The villa itself looks like it's sprouting out of the natural surroundings. The location is perfect for those that want to be away from it all but not too far from whatever activities one wishes to pursue. Colin, Rebecca and Jam were a pleasure to deal with. We would rent this villa again without hesitation. If you have any questions I would be happy to answer them. Email me at

Happy travels!

Turks and Caicos Tree House on Chalk Sound

  • 5 of 5

Everything about it was wonderful! Colin and Denise were easy to communicate with. Any problems or concerns Denise handled it. Clean and maintained. Beautiful location and home. Very comfortable! We could not get enough of the view. The restaurants were excellent but pricey. Gas was expensive. Snorkeling was the best we have ever seen. Taylor Bay and Turtle Cove were our favorite places to visit. We would recommend this place very much. Thank you for the memories and the wonderful home you shared with us. We hope to be back.

Stunnig Views and Incredible Turquoise Water!

  • 5 of 5

What a unique, relaxing West Indies style home with stunning views! Colin has been the most helpful and easiest owner to work with. His property contact, Denise, was a life saver when we had a flat tire as we were following her to the property. She called the car rental company, arranged for a car to be sent to the house and she took us to the property. Villa Poinciana had everything that one could need. The snorkel equipment and kayaks were great to be able to use. Provo was a good choice. Grace Bay was not far to drive to from Poinciana and public access to the beach is easy with locations marked. Coral Gardens and Smith Reef were great snorkel sites where we saw sea turtles, sting rays and numerous other fish. Shopping in Grace Bay area is well laid out - Cigar Factory and other stores with local art, jewelry were interesting. Driving was a bit of an adjustment but got the hang of it and the round-abouts. Sopadilla Bay and Taylor Bay are beautiful beaches near Poinciana. Taylor was a little harder to find as there was some construction going on. Las Barisas and Bugaloos are the closest restaurants and were quite good. There are some neighbor dogs that bark but with the air conditioning on it was manageable. This was a fun, relaxing adventure and Villa Poinciana was the perfect place to enjoy Turks and Caicos with my husband and two young adult sons. Thank you Colin!
