About the property

2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 4-6

Villa Poinciana is a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1300 square foot house with covered decks wrapping around both buildings. The surrounding foliage engulfs the wooden structures. See Aerial video at:

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
average rating of 4.875 based on 24 reviews


  • 5 of 5

The views were gorgeous, sunny skies and a great breeze all week long. Great home base to relax and enjoy nature. Plenty of room for our family to hang out together in the main house as well as enjoy privacy in our own space. We thought about staying in Grace Bay, but were glad we choose this side of the island.

Great private property & amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Third time visiting the island and best stay so far. We enjoyed the location, set-up of the house, full kitchen, kayaks and location to the beach. We had a dinner reservation but cancelled as we were so content just staying in and grilling. Previous reviewers mentioned the next door neighbors dogs; however, they did not bother us and only heard them when we pulled up the driveway. We recommend this house if you want privacy surrounded by water and nature. We are looking forward to coming back next year. Thank you Rebecca & Collin for answereing all our questions.

Tree House Atmosphere on Chalk Sound is Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I traveled to Provo for vacation. We found the home lovely, comfortable, clean and relaxing. From the time we arrived we felt we were well cared for, we were met at the car rental agency (just a short ride from the airport by shuttle) Jam led us to Poinciana Villa which was very helpful, we were able to follow her as driving is opposite from where we are from (it was not as hard as I thought it would be). If you need anything Rebecca or Colin are just a call/email away. Finding your way around on the Island was easy with a map. Sapodilla Bay Beach a quick walk from the villa, as well as La Brisas (great dining). Great photos were captured as we experienced the sunrise and sunset right from the deck. Other restaurants we tried were Kalooki's, Bay Bistro, Danny Bouys (Grace Bay), The Tiki Hut (Turtle Cove). The accommodations where cooking at home is an option you have everything you need, we choose to not utilize as we were on vacation the food at the restaurants was amazing. The location of the Villa is not far driving time from Grace Bay or the Airport. Hope you enjoy your stay, we did!

Amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Poinciana! The pictures do not do the house and the view justice - it is truly spectacular. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of Chalk Sound, but everything on the island is within in a 15-20 minute drive, so it was easy to get groceries, a nice meal out, try different beaches, etc. We absolutely loved Sapodilla Bay just down the street - spent many days just floating in the water there. The Taylor Bay beach access had been closed off, so we weren't able to see it. We did try some of the beaches up by Turtle Cove and Grace Bay, but with the winds being strong while we we there, we found Sapodilla and Chalk Sound much more enjoyable. Loved having the dock and kayaks. Plenty of places to relax in sun or shade. Rebecca and Jam were fantastic - always quick to answer a question or fix a problem (of which there were few). Our only complaint would be the barking dogs. There are many strays on the island, which bark at all hours of the day and night, but the neighbors on both sides of the house also have dogs and unfortunately they bark quite a lot. We eventually were able to tune it out, but with such lovely weather, and no need for air conditioning, our windows and doors were always open to the amazing breeze - and the sound of barking dogs.

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!
