Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

The Silver Palms Cottage is tucked away at the water's edge in a small cove on the south coast of Providenciales, overlooking the tranquil turquoise waters of Long Bay Beach. This charming little cottage offers self-catering accommodation for a maximum of 6 people in three cozy bedrooms. It is the ideal spot for a romantic get-away, or a fun family vacation. Silver Palms Cottage is the perfect alternative to the traditional hotel and resort experience. Our comfortable little cottage can be your private beach home for a weekend, a week or a month.

The cottage, decorated in a causal but homely style, includes a comfy living room complete with cable TV, DVD player and iPod dock, a fully equipped kitchen, and bedrooms with a comfortable queen-size, double and twin beds. The spacious deck, with panoramic views of the bay is furnished for alfresco dining.

Step off the deck on to miles of wide, natural, virtually uninhabited beach that invites you for leisurely walks, shelling and sun-bathing. You might see an occasional beachcomber or a couple of day-trippers, but most of the time you’ll have the sands to yourselves.

Quiet and secluded, yet accessible to everything. We are just a few minutes from many fine restaurants, shops, galleries, supermarkets and banks . Golfing and boating/ sailing facilities are also in close proximity.

For the adventurous, many exhilarating excursions and unique adventures are available through local tour operators. Some of the island's best water activities can be found right here. Long Bay beach is the premier beach on island for kite boarding. Kite-boarding takes place just a few kilometers away. The mangroves that flank the eastern coastline of the property offers the prefect opportunity of kayaking and fishing. Inflatable Kayaks and Canoe are provided at the cottage for the use of our guest. Explore the nearby coastal mangroves with these lightweight, easy to use inflatable kayaks and canoes.

If you are in search of peace and harmony, just enjoy the serenity of your own private cottage. Relax on the deck and soak up the warm sunshine or toast marshmallows while sitting at your private fire ring and watching the magnificent sunsets. Alternatively, you can visit one of the many spas on island.

There are only a few private, non-condo, beach homes available on Long Bay Beach, Providenciales that are directly on the sand and this is one of them. The property is located right on the beach. You step off the deck right on to the beach.

Alternatively, spend the day wadding in our newly constructed 27ft swimming pool. A refreshing dip goes a long way after a hot day of site seeing. A great Spot for reading a good book, an evening cocktail and meeting new friends. The pool area is a favorite gathering spot for guests. So come and make Silver Palms Cottage your home away from home.

Note: We have an adjacent beachfront 2 bedroom + loft cottage on property, which is an exact replica. We can also offer you a HOUSE + CAR package, as part of the rental.

About Tatum Clerveaux

Silver Palms Cottage is owned by Wesley & Tatum Clerveaux, a young couple with a passion for nature. Both Wesley and Tatum are marine ecologists, employed with the local Government.

The couple lives on Island, in the downtown area (10 mins away) with their two young kids.

Both are happy to share their knowledge of some of the more exciting places to visit and available opportunities on island.

Tatum Clerveaux purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Tatum Clerveaux chose Leeward Settlement

Silver Palms Cottage was constructed in 2006, by Wesley with the help of his dad, as a father and son labour of love project.

Originally from the neighbouring island of South Caicos, Wesley, built this cozy cottage as his personal Provo escape. A place where he could come and relax and experience nature at its best. A home away from home.

What makes this cottage unique

The location offers absolute peace and tranquility. For us, the experience of waking up early to a morning where tranquility is only broken by the sounds of birds chirping, gentle waves lapping against the shore and the occasional fishing boat chugging across the bay, is priceless.

Enjoying a cup of coffee on the deck while watching the tide come in or go out is also magically mind soothing.

The seclusion of the property also allows our kids to explore with little supervision. And as night falls, a barbecue on the beach or roasting marshmallows at the fire ring is always a big hit with the kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our group consisted of 3 couples looking for a vacation house with easy beach access for winter kiteboarding: and this was it! We stayed for 2 weeks and really felt comfortable and safe. We were able to kite here, right at the house, more than 50% of the time and drove the few miles to the other side of the island for wave sailing when the wind blew in the right direction for 3 other days. The house was comfortable and met our needs, although the climb to the loft was a surprise! The addition of the car was a necessary convenience and well worth it. Better than renting from one of the national companies. The stray dogs were gentle, sweet and won us over but, don't fall to the temptation of feeding them. They actually live a few lots down the beach. Had a small glitch with the water pump on our first day there, but Wesley got it fixed that same evening. Our only complaint was that the Internet access went down for 4 days, but it was an island outage and Wesley and Tatum did their best to remedy the situation. And the pool was great with a wonderful viewing area of the entire bay. Fun to lounge around and enjoy a beer at the end of the day. Because the flatwater kiting in the winter was so good, we are considering returning in the future. Thanks Wesley and Tatum, it was a vacation we will all remember.

Silver Palms Cottage is located approximately 13.8 km ( 8 miles) - about 15 mins from the airport on the south coast of the island, on Long Bay Beach, which is less developed than the more popular Grace Bay Beach, (no more than five minutes away by car). But that's one of the best features of the cottage, it provides privacy, peace, tranquility but yet close to all the popular spots on Providenciales.

Long Bay Beach, is also one of the most popular beaches for kite boarding and some of the more exhilarating water sporting activities like jet skiing. The mangroves and shallow waters of the Bay also make the area an ideal spot for novice fishers. For the more avid fishers, we would recommend a day trip to the flats of the Caicos Banks where bone fishing is a favorite.

The mangroves located right at your door-step and the clear crystal waters also provide excellent conditions for snorkeling. However, the best area for snorkeling on Provo are located on the near-shore patch reefs on the North Coast.

The closest restaurant to the cottage is at the miniature golf course (walking distance), which is a popular spot for casual dining and it serves fantastic local and international cuisine. However, the cottage is no more than 5 minutes drive from other restaurants, supermarkets and shopping centers at the Grace Bay area.

It is advisable that consideration be given to renting a vehicle as there is no established public transportation system apart from taxis. The use of bicycle is becoming more popular as a mode of transportation by many visitors to the island.

However, it does restrict your visit to attractions and dining areas that are nearby. Alternatively, there are also scooters on island for rent, which would permit greater flexibility and range in travel.

Beautiful, serene and private!

  • 5 of 5

This was definitely a great choice! Tatum and Wesley were so kind and warm from the start. Ben (the caretaker), was extremely accommodating. I beeped the horn by mistake and he thought I needed something so he showed up almost instantaneously. He helped us set up the firepit, bring in groceries, directions and anything I needed. I felt safe having him around. The property itself is a beautiful paradise. I saw sunrise every morning and took the kayak out. The water is shallow and you can see straight through it! Near the mangroves, I saw a ray, puffer fish, crabs, needlefish and some other cool fish. The beach house was spotless when I arrived and everything was comfortable. Tatum and Wesley thought of EVERYTHING- there was bug repellant in the cabinet, a phone, garbage bags- even a water cooler! The wifi was simple and easy to connect to, the pool was clean and crisp and the sand was white and smooth. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to visit TCI. It's nice to have your own privacy, kitchen, pool and beach. At night, I went out on the beds and looked up at the stars- it was one of the most beautiful night sky's I've ever seen. I wish I could go back! I hope you choose to stay here. You won't regret it!

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is few steps from the beach. Beach is clean, shallow water and seems popular among kite surfers. Cottage offers kayaks, Stand up Paddle Board, Snorkeling gear for guest use. Cottage has necessary amenities for your stay and comfortably accommodate 6 people. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. They came to greet us at the airport and escort to the cottage. We also rented their car (minivan) which was perfect for my family of 5. This is a great place to relax. Not a high end, luxurious facility, but comfortable and clean. Recommend renting a car to get around.

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

The house and area were exactly what we expected! Tatum and Wesley were welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed! The cove was an quiet spot with kiteboarders every day and staying there allowed us to experience a lot of the island...which was amazing!! Ben went above and beyond to make sure we had whatever we needed including our fires in the fire pit! We had an amazing trip!!! Highly recommend this house for the perfect visit!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at the Cozy Beach House. The location is perfect - beautiful, shallow sandy beach and protected from the wind on the windy days of our trip. We loved the access to kayaks and SUPS and made use of these most days. There is a pair of rays we saw multiple times. There is not a reef at this beach. However, we used our snorkel gear near the mangroves and saw lots of cool fish.

Ben (groundskeeper) is also very friendly. He greeted us on our first day and was always very helpful if we needed anything.

A few things to improve: The kitchen was not well stocked with kitchen utensils, cookware, etc. Tatum and Wesley were quick to bring over ice cube trays and a working coffee pot. Cable and main porch lights were also not working. Again, they were very responsive to this. A bit of updating to the property (better lighting in kitchen, new stove, a better stocked kitchen) and this would be an amazing house.

I would definitely recommend the Cozy Beach House!

Exactly what you are looking for in a relaxing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week on a 10 year anniversary trip. It was everything we could have asked for! The house was clean and accomodating. We spent most of our time laying in the hammock on the porch or on the bed on the beach enjoying the view. Our favorite part of the house was the location. You are completely secluded from the crowded resorts but within 10 minutes you could be there if you choose to. Ben was awesome and was happy to do anything to help us if needed like building fires in the evening. Wesley and Tatum made sure our time was as relaxing as possible and were available any time we needed them. We can not wait to come back!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in one of the cottages owned by Wesley and Tatum. There were 6 of us. The cottage is cozy and lived in and just as it looks in the pictures. It is not fancy but was very clean and comfortable. We spent minimal time inside. We were always on the beach or the screened in porch. There is a lot of privacy between the 2 cottages. Each cottage has its own beach chairs and beach bed which was probably my favorite thing. You do share the fire pit with your neighbors but that was not a problem at all. The fire pit is huge and there are plenty of chairs. Ben who is the caretaker started the fire for us every night and made sure we had enough wood. The stars were amazing! Life doesn't get much better than a bon fire on the beach every night.

We all thought the sand was soft and easy to walk in barefoot. The water is very shallow as others have said. That wasn't a problem for us. We used the kayaks and paddle board every day. We also took advantage of the beautiful pool overlooking the beach. When we wanted to swim in the ocean we just drove 5 - 10 minutes to another beach. There are many to choose from and all are beautiful and not crowded. One day the wind changed and a lot of seaweed washed up on the beach in front of us. Ben was right out there and raked it all up. He was great about keeping the beach clean. He also changed the sheets on the outdoor bed, swept all the sand off the walkways, freshened the bucket of water to rinse our feet, cleaned the pool, etc. Be sure to talk with him. He is very sweet and is learning English.

Mid week a woman came and did a thorough cleaning. I was surprised. I was only expecting her to leave us clean towels and change the sheets but she also cleaned the entire cottage. She even washed the dishes and put them away. We did have a couple of minor problems during the week but Wesley and Tatum were quick to respond.

Our children are in their late 20's. They all agreed it was a wonderful place to stay. It is very private. Some days we never saw anyone else on the beach. Some might not like that but we thought it was perfect. Being able to walk off the screened porch directly to the beach was so nice. Oh and we also rented the van from the owners. That was great. No waiting in line at the rental car place and when we left we just parked the van in the parking lot at the airport. So much easier.

I would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely stay here again. Thanks
