Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 8 nights at the beginning of April 2016. The place is clean, well maintained, full kitchen with all you'll need, great snorkeling gear, beach chairs, umbrella, safe. The pool, hot tub and outside areas are beautiful. Janelle is very pleasant and takes care of any questions you may have. It may be difficult for anyone with mobility issues as there are a lot of outside stairs, but there is the option of the elevator. A car is recommended. The beach and some good restaurants are within walking distance. Other than a few minor glitches upon arrival, everything went smoothly. Definitely would recommend.

Thank you very much for your hospitality!

Memorable stay. Studio better than advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing getaway! The pictures simply don't do justice to the view from this studio's balcony. The amenities at the condo are extremely convenient. We enjoyed the pool every morning and even went to the gym once. My husband and I really enjoy cooking and found the kitchen to be well stocked for our needs. Relaxing in the hot tub following our days of adventuring, was the perfect way to spend the evenings!

Janelle is a fabulous host, she was prompt and courteous in her communication. We requested some restaurant recommendations and she provided knowledgeable suggestions. We were more than pleased with the food we ate on the island all week. She also recommended a terrific spot to go snorkeling, along with providing us scuba diving sets and beach chairs. We truly enjoyed ourselves in the Turks and Caicos and would go back anytime!

Perfect & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was very easy and pleasant working with Janelle, Steve, and Victor. When my wife and I arrived, we took a cab to La Vista Azul and was met by Victor. He was a very pleasant man and he showed us everything we needed to know. We then began our vacation by taking a long stroll on the beach and finding a spot to begin our tans. The beach is an easy walk and there are dive shops and restaurants along the way. The condo is very nice and the view from the balcony is totally awesome. The condo is very well stocked with all you need to prepare your own food and the IGA store is a short distance away. I do recommend you rent a car because there are numerous beaches to explore. There were very few people around, so the pool area was mostly private. If you like crowds, this is not the place for you. There is shopping and more restaurants a couple miles east by Kingston. We will be back and hope to stay at Janelle's condo if it is available next time. We have been to Roatan, Honduras; Belize; Caymans; Jamaica; Virgin Islands; Mexico: but the Turks and Caicos, so far, have the best diving, snorkeling, sand, and turquoise water so far. I personally enjoyed diving with Provo divers.

Incredible vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed ten awesome days in this beautiful condo. It was a last minute booked and we were incredibly happy with our selection. We, my wife and I, stayed nine nights in the condo. Very clean and modern, the pictures did not do the place justice. The view from the kitchen and balcony was worth the trip. We walked to the beach everyday which is about 8-10 mins but we didn't mind. Once on the beach, the nearest guest was at least 100 yards away in either direction. The white sands and beautiful blue water were to die for. What really made the condo make sense was the car. Though hilarious to be a 6'3 man drive around a tiny car, we zipped up and down the entire island. This enabled us to hit every beach and bay so everyday was a new adventure. The car got great gas mileage so don't be worried about the high gas prices. With the car we hit the local IGA for groceries, though prices are higher on the island, we saved significant money buy cooking ourselves. The pools were great which we often had to ourselves. We appreciated the WIFI which never failed us, we even got signal don at the pool. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. Plenty of towels and toiletries. Last, I passed this condo off to friends and family...really exceeded our expectations. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Modern, Clean, Beautiful Condo in Turtle Cove

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay in Turtle Cove! We just came back from a one-week stay at the condo, and it really worked out well for us. Service was great from the owner as well

The Condo: Clean, very modern, and quite spacious for a studio. It has a new and renovated feel which makes if a very comfortable place to come back to after a day at the beach. There's a gorgeous view of the ocean from the unit, and the large glass doors let in tons of light making it feel bright and airy. The kitchen is stocked with all of the basic cookware and cutlery you would need to prepare any quick and easy meal, plus a full-size oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and stacked washer/dryer. We didn't need air conditioning during the day, but the a/c worked really well for sleeping at night. The wifi worked quite well too.

The Resort (La Vista Azul): The resort includes multiple buildings, and this condo is in building 3 at the back/highest point. Despite there being multiple units, we had plenty of privacy and it never felt crowded there (granted it was low-season). There were multiple swimming pools, and when we jumped in for an evening dip we were always the only ones in the pool. It's 2 full flights of stairs from the condo unit to the "upper" ground level where you access the hot tub, swimming pools, and parking (there's also an elevator for this part if you prefer). From that upper ground level, it is quite a climb (probably 5 additional full flights of stairs, no elevator for this part) to the lower part of the resort which is the way to the beach. We only climbed these 5 flights a couple of times since we drove to the beach more often than not. And, even once down those 5 flights of stairs, it's another 7-10 minute walk to get to the beach. This isn't an "on-the-beach" condo, so we didn't have any problem with that.

The Location: If it's your first time in Provo, Turtle Cove is a bit removed from the more populated and touristy Grace Bay area (5-10 minute drive). We were quite happy about that separation. Turtle Cove is right at Smith's Reef which offers some AMAZING off-the-beach snorkeling (a BIG highlight for us!). The fact that the condo included a car was HUGE too. We never drove far (the island is pretty small), but the car enabled us to easily check out numerous beaches (Leeward, Taylor Bay, etc)

Overall, an excellent experience. Highly recommended for a contemporary, relaxing, comfortable place to stay in Turtle Cove.
