Beautiful Villa in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is even better in person then it is in the pictures online and the pictures are what caught our attention and led me to inquire about staying at this beautiful villa. When Katherine responded with a wealth of information to help us plan our vacation, we knew we were in good hands as we were dealing with someone very passionate about ensuring their guests have the best vacation ever. We couldn't wait to their and we didn't want to leave once we had a taste of Island Life. Sweet Escape Villa is a beautiful property with a nice breeze, lots of palm trees and flowering shrubs in a quiet residential community of professionals and other Vacation rentals. There are no villa's across the canal so it was nice and private to sit down at the dock, it was like being at a modern cottage on a lake but we were on the Ocean. We had so much fun swimming in the canal, jumping on the water trampoline and at night, there are a million stars in the sky as there no light pollution. Katherine & Josie welcomed us with a glass of the most delicious rum punch. They gave us a map which was custom made showing us where we were staying, where the grocery store is, Sharkbite and a list of other great places. Once we got the hang of driving on the left we had a blast exploring the island. We felt "at home" and so welcome by everyone. We went to a several different places every day and enjoyed relaxing at different beach spot every day. We also went out on a 1/2 day snorkel trip with Island Vibes which was a highlight. We also went on a Sunset Sail with Ocean Vibes on their 48 foot Sail Catamaran sailing across Grace Bay into the sunset with great drinks and great friends. This was our first trip to Turks & Caicos and it exceeded our expectations. We had the best meals at Sharkbite, Yoshi's, Coco Bistro, Thai Orchid, Vix and Somewhere a few times. We are already planning our next trip and will be in touch to reserve our next stay at Sweet Escape. The Villa has the most comfortable pillow top mattresses, the bedding was soft and we all slept very well. The bathrooms are gorgeous, I loved the Turquoise Tiles, the soaker tub & 7 Foot shower with the Glass and pebble tiles on the floor and the bench seat with the Kohler rain shower was a dream shower. The great room has a beautiful caribbean wood beam ceiling and 2 large turquoise sofa's and a chaise lounge with a 55" TV was great for relaxing after dinner, great stereo and we loved sipping wine on the screened in porch.

lovely Caribbean home

  • 5 of 5

Sweet Escapes is a lovely, comfortable home with breezes flowing through. We loved the screened porch (especially since I'm prone to bug bites). Most of the meals we had at the house were on the porch. We also enjoyed lounging on the deck by the canal.

Joselyn had the house prepared, gave us a tour of the property, and made us some yummy rum punch. She pointed out areas of interest on a map. There was also a book with recommendations and directions. She was available via the house cell phone to answer any questions. We also liked finding a couple of beers and water in the fridge. We had plenty of paper goods, too.

We rented a car since there's not much in walking distance. We didn't have to drive far to visit the places we wanted to go, though. Beach chairs, towels, umbrella, & coolers are available for use. We didn't want for anything! It was the best-equipped house with supplies where we've ever stayed.

It was a relaxing vacation!

Sweet Escape Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Sweet Escape Villa from the 13th of January through to the 20th. The Villa is just as pictured- spacious, clean and supplied with everything one needs to feel right at home. The bathrooms and bedrooms are beautifully done in the colours of the Caribbean and the living room/family room is large and comfortable!

We had issues regarding a lost passport the very first evening we arrived, and we have to thank Jocelyn and Katherine for all their assistance! We retrieved the passport that fell out in the back of our cab ride from the airport that very same night and were grateful for all the teamwork involved - and that extends to the cab drivers who helped get the word out! Wonderful people!

The binder full of information at the villa was extremely helpful and very user friendly. We definitely benefited from it. :-) Jocelyn even picked up the items we wanted to have on hand when we arrived! This is as over and above the complimentary pitcher of ice cold rum punch and the Turks Head beer that awaits every new visitor to the villa.

The SUV was perfect as I like a little air conditioning when we are driving. We packed the cooler, the beach chairs and towels as well as the umbrella every morning and made our way to either Grace Bay Beach or Long Bay Beach to soaked up the sun and swim in the ocean 🏖

We were always just a text or phone call away from Jocelyn if we needed anything.

Sharkbite and Cocovan at night and Rickie’s beach bar in the day proved to be the perfect pace for both of us! Especially with Sunday night football 🏈

One last mention that is too important to ignore...Katherine was gracious enough to understand the issues surrounding our flight suspension due to the fallout from hurricane Irma, and helped as much as she could to find alternatives for our planned visit in late November. When it proved to be impossible, she graciously offered us a credit, which we used as soon as possible. We didn’t expect this because our trip was less than two weeks away. Katherine’s offer went over and above, which speaks volumes.

Thank you for your hospitality Katherine and a big thank you to Jocelyn as well. We plan on returning! 🌴☀️😊🐠

Owner's Response: Dear Jackie & Mel, Thank you for writing such a heartfelt review. It is very important to both of us, that our guests feel at home, whether at the Villa or at the beach. We were grateful to be able to re-trace your step's, contact our friend Sunny's Taxi to give him a description of the driver who drove you to the villa. It is very good to know that the Taxi driver's share a network with vhf radio's. This is good to know as we have had guests forget a bag in the taxi before, so I am sure this is why they implemented that system as at the end of the day, they have left over luggage and have no idea whose it is. So a great service they have implemented. We are so happy that you were able to get here so soon after having to cancel last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. As you are a very good customer, I was happy to help you re-book in January. Our Island & Villa Guest Directory is a very helpful guide with driving directions to all of our favourite places along each of our islands most amazing beaches and we are so happy that you used it, as that is what it is there for. Have an amazing 2018 and we hope to see you again soon. Katherine & Jocelyn.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for choosing to stay at Sweet Escape and trusting me that the Island was doing very well after such a unprecedented Hurricane. We were very blessed to get off so lucky. It also shows how "ready" TCI is. The Power & Water were restored to anyone who lost power within a week for our Villa's. This Villa in particular only lost power & internet for 5 hours. That made it easy for us to keep in touch. This is a very beautiful well built Villa and we are grateful for it. We look forward to having you return one day. Until then stay in touch. Katherine, Joselyn & The Sweet Escape Team.

Paradise at last! Loved the Villa! Loved the Property! Loved the Island!

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy we chose Sweet Escape Villa. It was everything we dreamed of & more! I feel very lucky to have found this gorgeous place. We saved alot of money and had the best vacation ever. It is so nice to have all the amenities of home but on a tropical island paradise with your very own dock. In the morning, I took my coffee down to the dock and dove off the seadoo dock for a nice morning swim. The salt water is so therapeautic and it is so clear and clean and warm. We usually had breakfast at home, fresh grapefruit, berries on our cereal or eggs. There are 2 very nice white igloo coolers in great condition, along with lots of plastic tupperware to make it easy to pack a lunch. We rented the White Santa Fe SUV which is in great condition, cool ac, lots of cargo space. We had 4 people in our group. There are roof racks on top and they provide Tie Downs so you can transport 2 Sup's or a double Ocean Kayak to the beach or over to Leeward to explore the Mangroves. Katherine recommended we try that so we did and are we ever glad we did. Amazing yahcts at Blue Haven, Life of the Rich & Famous. We loved paddling across the channel to Half Moon Bay and the Mangroves. She showed us where Iguana Island was in relation to Big Blue Watersports and Blue Haven Marina. We saved over $800 by having the Kayaks & SUPS as that is what they charge for their eco tour for 2 hours and we got to do it for FREE. It was nice to do things on OUR TIME vs having to be on a schedule. I didn't wear a watch or ever look at my phone. There is great Wi-Fi in the Villa, so we were able to check emails and upload photos whenever we wanted. There is also a Printer available, if needed. The Villa is very comfortable. There are two super cozy Slip Cover Sofa's in the Great Room. I loved the Yellow Chaise Lounge with the Flamingo's on it. I passed out there reading my book a few times. The breeze thru the screened in porch was awesome. It felt like home. We were all very comfortable there. It is well decorated, very beachy, beautiful artwork, spotlessly clean. The furniture is excellent shape. The SS Fridge & Dishwasher were brand new. The Kitchen has a gorgeous granite countertop and undermount double sink and sprayer. We make alot of protein shakes & juices and there is a Nutribullet & another IQ Blender there that were amazing for that. Plus a coffee grinder, which she told us before our arrival, so we brought fresh beans with us. We ate at Sharkbite & Bay Bistro, both amazing. Thank You

Above and Beyond!

  • 5 of 5

This is a long-overdue review of our stay at the Sweet Escape Villa in mid-April. The Villa was more than adequate for our family of four. We found it to be clean and stocked with virtually everything we needed.

We enjoyed the canal and patio in the backyard and spent lots of time on the upper-level balcony. The grill and fully-equipped kitchen allowed us to prepare our breakfasts and most lunches right at “home,” so we could splurge on restaurant dinners. One day we bought a fresh snapper from a local fisherman and prepared it on the grill. Having a washer and dryer on site allowed us to pack very lightly.

Katherine and Josie were just a phone call or text away when we had questions, although the binder of information provided answered most of our questions.

We also rented the Hyundai SUV during our stay. It was so convenient to rent directly from Sweet Escape rather than going through a rental agency. Katherine took care of all of the paperwork for both the Villa and SUV rentals very efficiently and advised us in advance of what to expect every step of the way.

Perhaps most notable is the lengths that Katherine and her staff went to to track down an item we misplaced during our stay. We didn't realize until we returned that we'd left it behind. Josie kindly searched the Villa but couldn't find it. Eventually, it was discovered in the taxi we took to the airport (Sonny’s Taxi - I highly recommend). Sonny delivered it to Katherine, who Fedexed it to us. We were so grateful to have it back and pleased and impressed with the effort Katherine and her staff and Sonny the taxi driver put into helping us.

Sweet Escape was a wonderful experience all around, and I recommend it without hesitation. It'll be our first call next time we travel to TCI.

Owner's Response: Dear Martha & Family, Wow, what a heartfelt review. I forgot all about your sweater. Yes, we do everything we can to ensure our guests have an amazing experience and have all their belongings -:) It is our pleasure to do those little things. It helps to use the same taxi driver too. Then we can retrace your steps with you. We love when guests return year after year. That is when we know we are doing a great job. All repeat guests get $100 of their next stay. I will remember and deduct it when you are able to book again. I will post new pic's as the annual upgrades get done. Always exciting to make our villa's even better. My favorite channel is HGTV! Island Life & Caribbean Life. Have a great summer and thanks again. Katherine, Joselyn & THe Sweet Escape Team

About Kate & Joselyn

We are a family of water sports enthusiasts including Scuba, Snorkelling, Waterskiing, Wakeboarding, Tubing, Swimming, Fly Boarding, & Relaxing to name a few. We also enjoy Golfing, Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Baseball, Hockey (Ball Hockey & Roller Hockey will have to do - no ice here). We love fishing, kayaking, boating, biking, sailing, working out whether at a gym, the beach, or Yoga & Tai Chi on our balcony. Exercise and the great outdoors are a big part of who we are & our Villa's were made for people who enjoy the same. When we drove into the driveway of this property and stepped out of the car, we knew instantly this was the place. It is so peaceful and tranquil. You can hear the birds chirping and feel a nice tropical breeze. The main house is 1600 sq/ft with a 300 sq/ft screened in porch. The balcony wraps across the front of the Villa and around the east side with stairs down to the main grounds. We wanted to have a boat one day and this property allows us to dock a boat without paying marina fees. The swimming is great. There is so much salt in the water you can float forever. The kids love fishing and we love lying on the dock and looking at the stars. The property is in the perfect location off Leeward Highway at Turtle Creek Drive. It is 1 minute to Turtle Cove Marina in our Jeep. There is a beach on the point at Turtle Cove Marina. 2 minutes to IGA Grocery Store, 1 minute to the convenience store and gas station. 2 Minutes to the movies. 5 Minutes to the Airport, 5 Minutes to Grace Bay Beach, Long Bay Beach, Sapidilla Bay Beach, 2 minutes to Cooper Jack Bay Beach or Turtle Tail. 3 Minutes to Coral Gardens Snorkeling Site. Rent the Seadoo or Boat and travel down the canal to Cooper Jack Bay Beach at the mouth of South Side Marina. Venture to the right and visit Sapadilla Bay Beach. Venture to the Left of Marina and visit Long Bay Beach. Go around to the Leeward Marina thru to Grace Bay Beach or east to Pine Cay, Dellis Cay, Half Moon or Parrot Cay

Kate & Joselyn purchased this house in 2008

Why Kate & Joselyn chose Discovery Bay

This is such a peaceful oasis! The canal is great for swimming, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and we love laying on the dock at night with a glass of wine and looking at the stars! The boys & thier freinds love jumping on the water trampoline & then into the water to cool down. The Canal leads to the south side of the island so we can park a boat at the dock. High elevation and nice tropical breeze. We love the architecture of the Caribbean Wood Beamed Ceiling and Wrap around screened in Porch. We are in the Real Estate, love Scuba Diving, Watersports and the Hospitality Industry and love the location in central Provo, it is close to everything by car. Quick jot from the airport, turtle cove marina, IGA, Grace Bay Beach, Blue Haven Marina in Leeward or Chalk Sound, Sapidilla Bay Beach, Long Bay Beach, The Conch Shack Beach, or Malcolm Beach and so on. There is lots to see and do. Joselyn or I will greet you at the Villa with ice cold caribbean refreshments to quench your thirst as we show you around the property. We provide our helpful island guest directory with Top 25 List of things to do, places to go & more. We have a wealth of island knowledge and are happy to answer your questions prior to your arrival and during your stay.

What makes this house unique

This property is so amazingly quiet and beautiful. The lush landscaping, mature trees, the canal, it is so peaceful. A beautiful tropical breeze blows through the property most days and we just love relaxing in a hammock and reading a good book in a chaise lounge or simply having a siesta. It is so convenient to go for a swim off our very own dock and sunbath in private. There is a water trampoline to tire out the kids, great exercise. There is shore power at the dock for music. We LOVE to BARBECUE just as much as we LOVE SEAFOOD, so we have a 3 burner WEBER Genesis Barbecue and often buy fresh fish from the boats or Provo Seafood. Visit the Lobster Pound, Provo Seafood in Five Cays and buy fresh lobster tails, snapper, grouper, mackerel, wahoo, whatever they catch that day or have on ice. The Caribean Lobster Tails puff up nice under the broiler and I promise you they are delicious. 2nd favourite to Bay of Fundy Lobster & Maine Lobster are the TCI Lobster Tails under the broiler with butter. The Palm Trees and flowering shrubs are beautiful. It is a very safe neighborhood and a great place to go for a walk. Their are neighbors on the street and all homes are very private. Complimentary Watersports Items & Beach Supplies including Kayaks, Stand Up Paddle Board's, Trek Bikes, Snorkel Gear, Zayak, Water Hammick, Boogie Boards, Beach Chairs, Beach Towels, Coolers are Provided. We have arranged an Optional 21 Foot Centre Console Boat Rental, 3 Seater Seadoo, Jeep Wrangler or SUV Rental at an additional cost. Referrals Provided as the Island was made for exploring it's natural beauty. Sweet Escape will make you feel at home in the Caribbean. Our guest directory will be emailed to you to assist you with your Vacation Plans. It contains useful information about the property and Island. You will learn so much more about the island by staying at the Villa and exploring. If you go to a different spot every day, you will meet amazing people and create your own favorite places.

Each Room has Remote Controlled Split Wall AC Unit which is metered based on usage. We take a photo of the meter before & after your arrival. This is only to prevent guests from leaving doors and windows opened with the AC unit on. Please check your children's rooms and remind them to close the door behind them.

The average would be $5 per night, per bedroom The Great Room & Kitchen also have a high efficiency AC Unit if someone is sleeping on the sofa bed. The average cost of AC per Bedroom Per Week is $35 a week, so I have included that as a Fee. If 2 Bedrooms used then $70 a week. If the Great Room AC used then approx $105 per week.
