The condo was perfect for my getaway. If you are looking for a fancy resort this is not the place for you. My boyfriend and I are in our twenties and found the condo clean, perfect location, and very accommodating. The property manager, Julie, greeted us when we arrived; any questions or help they answered efficiently and promptly. Cellphone was provided which was very helpful when calling restaurants/taxis. We did not rent a car and we were totally fine. We explored the island by foot and bike (rent across the street). Food is fantastic. We ate at restaurants both walking distance and by taxi no grater than 10-15 min. I recommend Magnolia, Hemingways, Le Bouchere (French place), Lupo, and Fish Fry on Thursday. Walk to the beach is 5-10 min., as is the grocery store. They provided beach chairs, towels, and coolers. We brought some food with us, bought some things for breakfast and lunch and then treated ourselves to a nice dinner every night. Prices are expensive on this island but it's worth it. It's a great spot if you want to explore and do your own thing. We wanted to try something different than a resort for a change. We loved it!
Carpe diem condominium was perfect!
Very well located in grace bay next to the regent grand village where there are some shops and cafe' and restaurants. 5 minutes walk from the supermarket, 2 minutes walk from the beautiful grace bay beach and less than 5 minutes by car/ bike from the Provo golf club.
The unit was very nice and big and has lots of amenities like toilet paper and soap in the bathroom, salt olive oil and pepper in the kitchen ecc, and has a large patio with a Weber grill . The property manager leaves also in the kitchen a mobile phone for calling her in case of need. In the basement every guest has a locker with sunbrellas, beach chairs , fins and mask and all you need to go to the beach.
The property manager and the staff were super! We had a little problem with a basin one day and they immediately sent someone to repair it.
She also gave me the unit 2 hours before the check in time since I have arrived earlier and leave me the house the day of departure all day as I requested her since my flight was at 4.30 pm without paying an extra charge.
Turks&caicos is really a paradise !
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carpe Diem condos! The condo itself is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The location is the best, right in the middle of Grace Bay shops and great restaurants. From here it was easy to drive to anywhere with on the island: Long Bay, Sapodillo Beach, Turtle Cove, Leeward...the Leeward Highway is easy to drive on and well lit at night. This was our first visit to the Turks & Caicos Islands and we are coming back!
We have just returned following an 11 night stay in Carpe Diem. We stayed in unit 101A and it was absolutely immaculate.
The condo was beautiful, with a really comfortable bed, lovely shower and plenty of kitchen equipment to make our stay even more comfortable. Not to forget the use of beach chairs and parasol which was an added bonus.
We also felt very safe and secure due to the gates, and we absolutely loved being right in the centre of Grace Bay.
The pool is amazing and we had it to ourselves the majority of the time, but only a couple of minutes walk to the amazing beach!
Also we thought it was a great idea to have a local phone to use, which came in great use for taxis etc.
We would love to return next May and wondered if the property manager could pop me an email to give us rates :-)

Great place - First seeing the gated entrance makes you feel as if you are on a resort. Doors are keyless entry so you won't have to worry about losing keys on your trip. Our host greeted us as soon as we arrived and explained everything in full detail but quickly enough to let me get right into my vacation. The whole condo was comfortable and made you feel like you were home. Great location - Right across the street from most local shops, popular food places, and off resort night life. The supermarket (IGA) is .5 miles away so you fill up the fridge if needed. Right across the street from IGA is an AVIS which has the best deals for a scooter if you're into that. The beach is a 3 min walk. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AGAIN
