This villa was booked a year ago. After the hurricanes the owner contacted us and kept us apprised and let us know as far as they could in advance that the villa would be ready. The property is stunning and breathtaking. The grounds and the home itself was spotless. We were greeted at the airport, picked up our rental car, and was escorted to the property on Chalk Sound. There we met the manager, who gave us a rundown of everything and phone numbers to use if we needed to. The home has a local phone to use for this purpose. Each room was big, the bathrooms spacious, and the 5th bathroom was roomy as well. We walked in to find a gorgeous bowl of fresh fruit and a few local beers, sodas, and waters in the fridge! The sound system was great, and we played music all week. The pool was stunning, the dock was fabulous, and we had fun in the kayaks ans paddle boards. While we had plenty of bottled water, I drank the filtered water all week from the fridge with no ill effects. On day two of our rental, we were texted by the owner, just checking on us. Very classy. We did have a few minor issues which were handled satisfactorily and almost immediately. I cannot say enough about the responsiveness and professionalism of the property management team. We ate in for a lot of the meals, shopped at the IGA and Smart store, both supermarkets. We also brought some food in our suitcases and one frozen meat meal for the grill. We were a direct flight there and all was still solidly frozen upon arrival. There were plenty of pool toys to use, we bought and left "noodles" there too. We knew there were washers and dryers, so we packed light, and mid week we did some laundry. You do need a car to get around, and driving on the left side is no problem as long as you're sober ;-) All in all, this rental is a real stunner,and is true to the pictures. We wanted for nothing more and found no unpleasant surprises.
Eight of us rented this property to celebrate a 50th birthday and it was perfect. The layout of the house is such so that each room has its own bathroom in the corners of the house and that afforded everyone their own area of the house for privacy. The common areas of the kitchen and living room were large and didn't feel crowded when we all gathered together to cook when it was too rainy outside to grill. But, even when it rained and we wanted to be outside, we all sat around the large table outside the kitchen which was perfect to still enjoy the beauty of Chalk Bay and not feel cooped up due to weather. I loved walking out by the pool and finding each one of my friends spread out around the property reading books or listening to music and getting their quiet time each morning. We never felt crowded. Another highlight for me was having a yoga instructor teach yoga to four of us by the pool with a view of the bay in front of us. Completely relaxing.
The owners seem to have thought of everything. The house is on a quiet road further away from traffic and other businesses, which was a bonus for us, but we hardly wanted or needed to leave. The kayaks, paddle boards, masks and snorkels, and pool toys kept all of us entertained and we enjoyed being able to play in the Sound without having to go rent equipment.
Our original villa was damaged due to Hurricane Irma and Janine was so communicative and helpful in the weeks leading up to our visit, we were able to relax and trust that everything would be exactly as pictured when we arrived and it was. In addition, they had fully documented all the places to see and we used their recommendations and they didn't disappoint.
We loved the property, Chalk Sound, and the owners and will visit again when possible. This trip will be one of the favorites that I look back on. Thank you!
The house is gorgeous, spacious, family-friendly and has every amenity to make for a very luxurious & comfortable stay. The stunning views, amazing outdoor deck with pool and private access to the most beautiful turquoise water imaginable (with kayaks and paddle boards on hand for added fun!) makes this place a private paradise. Janine and John (the owners) left us with tons of recommendations for great places to eat and fun things to do around the Island. It was the ultimate vacation & we can't wait to go back again!
We stayed in this amazing home for 7 days this past July and it exceeded our every expectation! From the moment upon entering the villa, I instantly knew this was going to be the greatest week of my life, my own private paradise. Everything was above and beyond, the infinity pool, the décor, the access to the clear blue water. The villa has so much space, we had 2 other families with us, and never felt crowded or the need for privacy. The outdoor BBQ and TV were a huge plus! The beds and bedding felt as if I were in heaven, and having our own in room TV gave the opportunity for downtime when needed and all the channels you could ask for. There were several recommendations left for us to find things to do, and places to eat. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to visit Turks and Caicos if you want to spend your time feeling like a king or queen! Our family, including our 14 and 8 year old sons had an amazing time, very family friendly.
The luxurious house itself is an oasis paradise surrounded by the stunning caribbean island. We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return. Thanks so much for sharing this house with us!
