GraceBayBeach, SmithReef, FishFry, Dining (2adults+2sm kids)
- english, spanish
I am a born and raised SouthAmerican. I spent my whole summers on the beach while growing up so this island is a natural state of well being for me. I graduated from UGA where I met my husband of 22 years. Our children are in college and in highschool and Providenciales will turn into a family gathering place in the future. Until then I dream of turning House SanClem into a seasonal bed and breakfast.
MJ purchased this House in 2016
Why MJ chose
When I traveled to Providenciales for the first time, I fell in love with everything in it. I knew this place was meant for me the moment I set foot in the property. I felt those chills....and knew I was going to be living here one day. The residential area is a prime, quiet location where I can work and enjoy the day to day activity at a slow pace. Add yoga and some wine to that and VOILA!!! there you have it, my perfect place, my piece in heaven to grow to be 100 years old.

3.5 star accommodation in a 5 star setting
The property was as described in the listing and although there is no beach view, it's in very close proximity to the beach, in fact, you would likely have to walk further to the beach if you stayed at a hotel resort. The house is a bit dated but very clean and provided more than the basics. It's unfortunate that there is no access to the washer/dryer but we did get clean towels mid week. Our rental was the main floor of the house and we appreciated the veranda and BBQ. What is not evident in the listing is that the top floor of the house also gets rented to guests. Be aware that if there is a larger group or family above, there will be less privacy and more noise. We had a group of four young people who invited friends over some evenings so this was a bit of a surprise. I suggest that this be made clear on the rental info. We only saw Reyna once when we checked in but we didn't need much so it was fine. The location is great - not far from the airport and near the grocery store, the Marina and other resorts and of course, the Thursday Fish Fry. The beach with dedicated chairs for us was the most beautiful I've ever seen with very good snorkeling opportunities at the reef a short distance away. The location just doesn't get better. I suggest a car.
Thank you for your review. I will double check on that detail about the top floor, I am pretty sure I have it posted as a first floor rental with an option to rent the second if available. The laundry is open to the guests. I only ask that you have full loads to save water since this is not main land and waste is avoided. Not sure what you meant with not available Your stay was long enough that I would love to have heard from you if there was any issue to accommodate your needs.
Reyna is available by text and I am too 24/7. She works out of house so that is why you may not have seen her during a stay.
Only registered guests are allowed in the property.
I am glad you found the beach accommodating and the reefs close.
Thanks for the visit.
We felt like home. Sanclem is the perfect refuge if you prefer a cosy and personal accommodation. The house (we used the ground floor apartment) is comfortable and properly equipped. We prepared all our meals in the house and we enjoyed having breakfast outside in the veranda. The house is clean. We had no need to use AC, the fans were enough. A very nice beach is 5 minutes walking distance and the others are very close (from 5 to 15 minutes driving). My baby girl enjoyed the hammock and dancing in the veranda. Since there were no guests arriving on our last day, we were allowed to have a later checkout and it was absolutely useful since it was raining and we had our flight in the afternoon. We enjoyed a lot. I recommend Sanclem. Thanks MJ for your kind hospitality. Hope to come back.
Great to know you had a lovely stay. Come back anytime. =)
Easter in Turks
We stayed in MJ's lower unit and what we appreciated the most was the proximity to the beach and great restaurants. Access to snorklling right off what was our own private beach was fantastic. We have two children, we used 'dlove' (MJ's referral) to pick us up and make a stop for groceries and we were set for four days. Great for lazy mornings and they loved the beach and how close it was to us. During our stay MJ had 2 additional beach chairs and umbrella delivered to us in case we wanted to travel around to other beaches (very thoughtful). She also checked in to make sure we had our transportation sorted. Booking right away for next year.
It was our plesure to accomote your stay. I am glad you had a good time and we are looking forward to having you again!
Beautiful Quiet Place
My husband and I felt this rental was great for the price! It's a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach. Chairs and Umbrella are already setup for your use right on the beach. If you want to have some quiet, relaxing, peaceful time at the beach this is the place for you. The only downside is that it has no pool but honestly we didn't even miss it because the beautiful, breathtaking ocean is just like a pool!
We were initially greeted by Enrique and he made sure we were able to access the rental. So this was a good thing.
The place was pretty equipped with all the necessities. Including a flashlight which came in handy when we walked in the evening to dinner down several blocks. The refrigerator was stocked with 1 gallon of water which also came in very handy. The A/C unit worked very well and we were pretty comfortable.
Also wanted to comment that in order to get around to the more populated GRACE BAY area, you'll need to take a cab. It was approximately $15 to $20 each way (not per person).
We did get to meet the owner MJ while we were at the beach and she was very nice and asked us to just let her know if we had any questions or if we needed anything.
All in all we were happy with our stay and would recommend it.
Thank you Ivette for taking the time to review. You are right, who needs a pool with THAT ocean. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you comeback again. We are getting ready to do some more renovations to the unit.
Lovely safe resort which was gated and lots of room to spread out and enjoy!
We will come because it is a very good reasonable place to stay on the Island! We come every year and love this island !
Sandra, I hope you found the house as offered in the link. I try to stay very honest on how I describe what you should be expecting when you arrive. Not happy to see a 3 1/2 star rating and would love to hear more about that. Please feel free to write me an email or text about different ways you will suggest we could improve. I am happy to add that new beds are in and renovated bathrooms scheduled to be done by mid July. So come see us again, we will be happy to have you =)
Great location for peaceful getaway
We really enjoyed staying at SanClem, it is a very bright, clean and cheery place. The kitchen is well equipped, organized and clean. There is spacious porch and deck where you can relax in a hammock or loungers and enjoy the nice breeze. The location is great, a short walk to a beautiful beach, where few people passed by. If you do like crowds, you can just walk towards Coral Gardens and there will be plenty. If you walk the opposite direction you will find a great snorkeling spot at Smith’s reef. There are also several good restaurants at a walking distance. MJ provides a great folder with suggestions and directions which are very helpful. We would definitely recommend SanClem and hope to stay there again.
Thank you Simone for your review. If you don't mind sending me a private massage on how we lost a star, I will be thankful.
Hope you come see us again.
SanClem is located between Turtle Cove and Grace Bay. Walking distance to both areas. It features The Smith's Reef just feet away, The Bight Reef and the Princess Alexandria Marine Park. Our area is a quiet neighborhood of custom built homes. But close to all the fun including a casino 4 blocks aways, restaurants, marina, most importantly SNORKELING!
