About Leanne Karnehm
My wife and I are residents of the Turks and Caicos Islands, we built Coral Gardens in two phases. We were born and raised in Vancouver, B.C. - Canada and traveled to Provo about 20 years ago for the first time, where we fell in love with the islands.
Why Leanne Karnehm chose Grace Bay
location, location, location!! View of ocean, snorkeling reef in front of the condo, Dive Shop onsite, Somewhere Cafe onsite, fitness facility next door....swimming, snorkeling, diving, walking, relaxing!
What makes this Condo unique
Penthouse is directly on Grace Bay Beach. I am the developer of Coral Gardens, and saved the penthouse for my family. Guests love this boutique resort, the warm staff and the fact that the best snorkeling is steps from our door.

First time in TCI and couldn’t have picked a better place to get to know the island. Condo is right on Grace Bay Beach (literally almost right “on” it) so there is no better view you could ask for. Spotless, well-equipped, responsive owner via email and responsive property manager on-site made for a worry-free week. Unit is roomy, nicely-furnished and beds were soft and comfy. Would happily stay here again. Quick special mention of beach attendant Jerome - super nice, thoughtful guy who helped make a great week even better!
A handful of TCI tips:
-a rental car is not a must, but we were glad to have one.
-there’s no real “downtown” Provo. There is a kind-of central business district but no real reason for tourists to go there.
-there is a shopping area towards the eastern end of Grace Bay with the usual stores selling shirts, trinkets, gems, frozen yogurt. This is also where several good restaurants are located.
-this area is also where a dog-rescue place called “Potcakes” is found. If you love puppies, Potcakes is for you. They allow people to volunteer to walk puppies on weekday mornings, which turned out to be the highlight my daughter will always remember.
-condo complex is within beach-walking distance of several good places to eat (and the bar/restaurant “Somewhere” on-site is one of them). You can even walk to Fish Fry Thursday, which is a Provo thing-to-do, attracting as it does a mix of tourists and locals. Not many other places where you can put toes in the sand to go to dinner as often as you choose!
Thank you for your review and comments! Very comprehensive for new people arriving to the island for the first time, it always helps when people hear from others how great the property is and how convenient the location is.

Very satisfied across the board with our stay
Wonderful condo in a fantastic location with some of the best views we’ve ever seen!
Overall the property was just as described in the website. We loved opening up the sliders and enjoying the amazing views of Grace Bay! This was an empty nest celebration trip with two couples and it was wonderful! We didn’t want to leave!
Thank you for your review!
We are so happy you enjoyed your trip with us. The views of Grace Bay are amazing from this condo. Please come back and visit us again. Always welcome!
Leanne and all of the Coral Gardens team.
Nice place to stay with great view of Grace Bay
The Coral Gardens condo was a great place to stay. Everything was pretty much what the description and pictures indicate. Jamy was a big help getting settled and showing us around the condo. One caution - the condo directly overlooks the reef and the beach can get very crowded. It is great having Somewhere bar and restaurant on the property to be able to grab a quick bite or a beer without having to drive.
So happy you enjoyed your stay with us at Coral Gardens. It's a great location for the best swimming and snorkelling. Hope to see you again soon!
Great spot in a great location!
Great place! The location is hard to beat, right on Grace Bay, with a large terrace and a great view of the ocean (although the water was not quite as turquoise as in the picture). You have a great snorkeling spot right in front of the complex. The space is clean and spacious. Beds are very comfortable. Very large master bathroom and big shower with great water pressure. Having 2.5 bathrooms works great with a family. The terrace is fantastic, with very comfortable lounge chairs to chill and a nice table for breakfast. Bugs can be an issue, so bug spray is recommended. You do have to walk up 3 flight of stairs to the 3rd floor, which was easy, but could be an issue if you have a mobility impairment. Jamy and the staff were very nice and super helpful. The 2 swimming pools were slightly sub-par compared to similar properties, hence the 4 stars. Overall, we loved the place!
So glad you stayed with us at Coral Gardens! We really do have the best spot on Grace Bay beach. The snorkelling reef directly out front of our resort offers our guests a great experience without having to travel to another location. Our very large condos also have all the amenities for families to relax and enjoy the views. We welcome you back soon!
Perfect Family Vacation!
We can't say enough about the accommodations and location. Very large two bedroom villa with the most beautiful views. Our teenage boys were constantly entertained with the snorkeling, jet skiing, parasailing and of course Somewhere Cafe (right on the beach next to the resort). The snorkeling at the protected reef right in front of the resort was fantastic and we saw many turtles on a daily basis. It was a perfect family vacation in all respects.
On a final note, Leanne and Jamy were always available before and during our stay and made it a wonderful vacation. We will be back!
