Charming villa in beautiful, quiet area
The villa was charming and very clean and comfortable. It was perfect for our needs. The bedrooms were a good size and were comfortable. Having 2.5 baths is really convenient. The powder room also opens to the pool area, so you have restroom access without having to go through the house. Each room, including the living room and dining room, has its own A/C, so you can easily manage use to keep the bill down. The kitchen was well equipped and we ate in more than we ate out.
We really enjoyed having a private pool with a shaded patio area for eating and lounging and seating all around it. We had no problem with mosquitoes at all. The walk to the beach was easy, so some days we walked down in our bathing suits, went in the water for awhile and then back out and back to the house, but others we loaded up the car with the umbrellas and chairs and floaties and parked right by the beach access path, just to make life easier. There is also a cooler in the kitchen, so you could also take food and drink supplies for a longer day at the beach. The house is stocked with beach towels, two umbrellas, and several chairs. Robert also lent us a pair of snorkeling fins, as we were one set short. The beach itself was lovely, had very few people on it, and you can walk directly out into the water and just float around without worrying about currents carrying you off.
Finally, Robert was great. He lives right nearby, so he can be on site in no time if you should happen to need him. We also did a half-day boat trip with him which was a lot of fun. We saw the iguanas at Iguana Island, went out to the ship wreck, and snorkeled at the reef. Robert supplied everything we needed and made yummy rum punch.
Great Family Friendly House
Overall, this was a great family house. Everything was clean, and we were super close to a fabulous beach. We especially loved having the private pool at the end of a beach filled day. Robert is a great host. Robert's private charter tour was a lot of fun. He took us to all the great touring locations and allowed us all the time we needed to explore each place. Our family likes it's own personal space, so being able to do these tours on our own was especially appreciated. The house had everything we needed when we arrived. The only thing missing was waking up and staring at the ocean while drinking a cup of coffee, or ending the day staring at the ocean. That being said, we would absolutely stay at this property again.
Beautiful villa close to beach in quiet neighborhood.
It had everything we needed for a wonderful week's stay including beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and cooler. Pelican Beach is a 5-minute walk, almost no-one there when we visited as it's away from the hotels.
Other beaches are a short drive away. We enjoyed Long Bay Beach and Sapodilla bay in particular. Robert had many good suggestions of where to snorkel and has equipment if you need it.
The house has excellent A/C and fans in all rooms. Cable TV and WiFi worked great.
We rented a car from Grace Bay Car Rentals, you just walk over the street from the airport, no shuttle needed.
Loved our stay, thanks Robert for sharing your home with us! Look forward to coming back some day!
Everything We Could Ask For on a Family Vacation
We had a wonderful 5 days at Perroquet Villa in mid May. The house is very well stocked with everything we needed to cook and grill, and there was plenty of beach and pool gear, including an umbrella, towels and cooler. The outdoor space was beautiful with flowers and palm trees, just as it looks in the photos. The house is spacious, with the Master bedroom and bath at one end and the other two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the other side. It is not the most fancy and modern of houses, but the price is very reasonable and you have everything you could need for a wonderful trip to Provo. We have stayed in 5 star hotels on the island, but this time around with two small children in tow, Perroquet Villa was the perfect place for our group.
Robert was extremely helpful and answered all our questions very quickly. We had some plumbing issues the first two days (very common on an island) and Robert came right over to address the problems himself. And when our 4 year old stuck a toy into the pool filter, we thought he would be mad but he just laughed and said it was no problem, then fixed it right away. He really went out of his way to accommodate our requests, including asking his gardener to harvest some coconuts from the tree in the back yard so we could have fresh coconut water one morning! Very cool experience.
The beach was a few minutes walk down the road and our 4 year old was fine with the walk, even in the heat. You can also drive a car and park it near the entrance to the beach. One thing to note, since this is a private residence away from the main hotels, there are more mosquitos around than you would find if staying at a resort the sprays for them regularly. Robert did supply bug spray, but we all ended up with plenty of bites as some got into the house. In particular, beware if you go to the beach at sunset, as we were eaten alive by sand fleas - something I didn't know about ahead of time! The amazing sunset photos were worth it though and the sand fleas did not bother us at all midday at the beach.
All in all, a wonderful family vacation and we would happily rent from Robert again in the future!
We loved Robert and Florence
Wow- one word but oh so fitting for our time spent at this beautiful place in Turks and Caicos. We were greeted by the lovely Florence and Robert upon arrival with warm smiles, a plethora of suggestions for the island and a 6 pack of beer from the island...who can say no to that?
Robert was even kind enough to take us out on his boat one day and was an amazing captain and host. He showed us all the beauties the island had to offer.
Robert and Florence made us feel more than welcome during our stay. We cannot wait to come back and visit!
Fabulous vacation in this wonderful villa - great location
Villa set in a quiet neghborhood with the most beautiful beach (Pelican) just minutes away by foot. Loved the set up of the house - 2 bedrooms at one end for the kids, and we had our own bedroom at the other end of the living room/dining room area. Kitchen was well stocked, clean and worked well for the nights we cooked at home. We explored the island in our rental car (highly recommend Grace Bay Car Rentals) based on Robert's recommendations. Highlights of our week were snorkeling at different locations, Provo Ponies and private boat ride with Robert.
We really enjoyed spending time at the villa as a family, lounging around the pool, watching TV or having family game night. There are no board games, cards or puzzles, so bring your own.
