LUXURY BEACH LEVEL, OCEANFRONT CONDO ON GRACE BAY

'Island time' begins for you after a short 70 minute flight from Miami. You will then will find yourself on the “Best Beach in the World” as rated by Conde Nast and “Top Beach Destination in the World”.

This privately owned condominium at Coral Gardens on Grace Bay, a classic Carribean boutique resort, is located directly on the best snorkeling reef in all of Grace Bay. This spacious luxury condominium boasts over 2100 square feet of comfort and 'feel- at-home' amenities. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths, king size beds in each, fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, separate dining area and kitchen bar which seats four. Also, enjoy an in-suite washer/dryer, large soaking tub in the master bath, walk-in shower, double sinks, cable television, free wifi, and local cell phone provided.

The condominium has floor to ceiling, sliding glass doors, which disappear into the walls extending your living space to the surrounding patio creating a luxurious lanai effect in this ground floor unit. The patio is surrounded by a reflecting pond and bordered with a waterfall which looks out on to the gardens and unobstructed view of the beautiful ocean. You will have a front seat to some of the most beautiful sunsets right from your own patio.

Optional Configuration: The condominium may be rented as an entire two bedroom unit or separately with the main ocean-front living room and kitchen along with the larger master bedroom and 1 ½ bath. The second bedroom or “Garden Room” guest suite is a master bedroom with a separate entrance, king-size bed, full bath and has a small refrigerator, coffee bar, and small garden patio. The 2 suites are connected by an interior door.

If your bucket list includes learning to dive or snorkeling then you have come to the right place as the Turks and Caicos Islands have the 3rd largest coral reef system in the world.

Located right on property is Caicos Adventures, the largest and oldest water sports operation in Providenciales. You can learn to dive in one of the two pools on property, arrange a dive trip, snorkeling, or water excursions right in their shop.

The Bight Reef is directly in front of the resort and 10 feet from the waters edge, perfect for any age guest. Guests from other resorts on Grace Bay make a point to come to our reef for snorkeling. For our guests, the reef is your front door to a variety of sea life, our resident sea turtles and an occasional sighting of JoJo the dolphin. It is also an amazing location for a night dive, again, right at your front door.

Providenciales is known for their many, many fine restaurants, from casual to elegant, exotic to more local fare. One of the best on the island is the casual fun atmosphere of “Somewhere Café” located right on the property and sits directly on the ocean with an upstairs and downstairs bar with happy hour starting one hour before sunset and ending one hour after sunset. Somewhere Cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Somewhere Cafe will serve you drinks and food right on the beach! Do not go home without trying their fish tacos - the talk of the island!

The sunset views from the upstairs bar are undeniably some of the best in Provo. The Cafe has live music every Thursday and Sunday.

Your little corner of paradise is steps to the beach, no stairs to climb after a long day at the beach or a 2 tank wall dive – just a nice relaxing stroll to your home away from home.

The Coral Gardens on Grace Bay friendly staff can help you with any questions or needs you may have during your stay.

Sorry, no pets and no smoking

Why Arlene and Joe Wheeler chose Grace Bay

We came to Coral Gardens on Grace Bay in Providenciales (Provo), Turks and Caicos Islands for the first time in 2000 and stayed for 8 days, the next year we stayed for 12, the next 14. Loved it so much we bought a condo in 2003 and now we stay 3 weeks in the summer and 1 or 2 times the rest of the year. Being snorkelers at the time, Coral Gardens was a perfect choice for us and our son. The Bight Reef was right there with a variety of sea life, coral and

sea turtles. The white sand was gorgeous and the surf nice and gentle for snorkeling and just floating on a raft. So peaceful and relaxing! We later became certified divers with the certification process taking place right at the resort. Diving in TCI is awesome! Wall diving there is some in the best in the world.

Guests at Coral Gardens are there but one day before they feel like they are a member of the family. The resort is small so everyone knows your name and will take great care of you. We can honestly say in 11 years we have never had a bad meal on Provo. The restaurants are great from Coco Bistro, the Magnolia, Tiki Hut, Da Conch Shack or Shark Bites just to name a few. You could stay for a month and not eat in the same place twice! Of course our own Somewhere Cafe on the property is not to be missed. After 11 years we just feel no where else in the Carribean compares to here. Our condo is so roomy and wide and home-like we always hate to leave and start counting the days till we are back. We have walked the beaches for many years and our condo building is literally the closest to the beach in all of Grace Bay. We feel it is our little corner of paradise - hope you will too!

Wonderful stay at Coral Gardens!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 visited this condo March 5 - 15th and had a lovely time. My children (age 5 and 8) loved every second of the trip. Perfect location right on the reef made for AMAZING snorkeling (we saw tons of beautiful fish, turtles, barracudas, sting rays, etc.). Somewhere cafe right on the property was fantastic too. On the beach, Gerome and the rest of the crew were extremely helpful and friendly. They had beach chairs for us every day and helped us book a parasailing trip and a tubing boat trip. We explored a few other beaches on the island, including Long Bay Beach and Malcolm's Road Beach. We ate at so many fabulous restaurants on top of Somewhere Cafe - Jojo's and The Dunes next door at Windsong were both great; Stelle down the beach at Gansevoort was great; Da Conch Shack both for a lunch and dinner; Sharkbites for lunch (an amazing fish sandwich) and Hemmingways at The Sand's.

My only complaint is the pool area and the caps over the filters/drains. Both were not secure and although I knew that I accidentally stepped on one while walking to the trash can and fell in the filter which left a nasty wound on my leg. They need to fix this issue before someone really gets hurt.

Highly recommend booking boat tours with Island Vibes and High Wave Boat Tours - favorite excursions of the trip.

We look forward to returning :)

Great location with incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Coral Gardens at Grace Bay. Wow! Seeing the hues of blue in the water from the condo was priceless. A short walk and you are on the beach. Jerome the beach attendant will set you up with your lounge chairs and table. The Bight reef is right in front of you. The Wheeler’s were great in answering any questions we had prior to our trip. Show up and just relax!

Beautiful, amazing vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 children, aged 13 and 9 - spent the Christmas holidays at this beautiful condo. What an amazing experience. Everything is as described or better. The condo is immaculately clean, and so well-equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, great bathrooms, and the most comfortable king sized beds! We spent our evenings on the patio looking out at the ocean and our days on the beautiful beach. We wanted a place where we could snorkel any time we wanted, rather than having to sign up to be taken out on a boat...and this was absolutely perfect for that. You walk out of the condo, 20 feet to the white sandy beach...put on your snorkelling gear....and in you go. There is a great reef right there off the beach...we spent hours every day exploring it. My kids discovered the local sea turtles, just off to the left of the reef, and would dive down 15 feet or so to see them up close. We saw so many beautiful fish - rainbow parrotfish, trumpetfish, yellow-tailed snapper - which we discovered are very curious and playful!! - small squid, and a barracuda that hung out on the edge of the reef every day. The snorkelling was perfect for us. We also did a day cruise with Island Vibes Tours - highly recommended!!! While on the boat we were graced by the presence of JoJo, a local dolphin, who swam along beside us.

At the condo, the daily cleaning service was very helpful. You are provided with beach towels from the office, which is a little room on the way down the path to the beach. Also on the way there is the Somewhere Cafe - wow is all I can say. The food and drinks there are amazing, as is the view from the rooftop patio. Live music also some afternoons and evenings...so much fun!

The condo is HUGE. The kids basically had their own area, as the second bedroom is large and has a private bathroom (with shower), and the room is equipped with a modern tv, bar fridge, toaster and coffee maker, It even has it's own little patio area.

There are 3 tv's in total - living room, and one in each bedroom - but I don't think we ever used them. We were too busy enjoying the beach!

Also, Arlene was very communicative and helpful, and I can't say enough about the help and advice we received from Tyler, who did everything from arrange a rental car to book dinner reservations (Mango Reef is a must-do for great food!!) to advise us on grocery shopping and places to check out.

Overall, an amazing experience and we can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for this wonderful review. I had my husband read it and his reaction was almost my thoughts exactly. You could not have explained any better why we came to Coral Gardens on Grace Bay but why we kept coming back. So easy to walk out to beach and be snorkeling in minutes. Good food right on the beach and entertainment and a roomy condo where everyone has their space. You captured it all. I will pass on your kind words to Tyler,. He is a fine, hard-working young man and takes great care of our guests. Please come back anytime. Our return guests we consider part of the Coral Gardens family. Thank you again Stacey for taking your time to write and warm regards to your family. Arlene

excellent location and condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in January and thoroughly enjoyed the condo and location. We believe it's the best unit in the complex with direct access to the beach but on the side so virtually no one walks in front of your view. Tyler coordinated our reservation and was very responsive (5 stars also). He arranged for a rental car to be waiting at the condo including pickup and drop off at the airport. Having a car gives you many more food options including grocery stores and "local" eating spots. Best activities: Dive with Provo Turtle Divers, snorkel at Smith's reef, eating at Mr Grooper's, Taylor Cove for sunset, walking the beach.

LOCATION EQUALS VALUE

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, not disappointed all week. From beginning to end all the staff (condo, rental car Quality and Somewhere) were on target. Unit is very clean, daily maid service is a plus if needed. Large enough that 2 couples never bumped into each other. We did breakfast and some lunches in-house, dinner out every night.(Great Restaurants across the island) Recommend to rent a car, see the whole island, it's worth it. The Hole, Chalk Sound, Five Cays. Meet the locals and tourist at the Thursday fish fry, live music, vendor's, fresh cooked local food, a must do!

Beach steps away, Jerome did us right all week! Make sure you see the sunset on the upper deck of Somewhere. Did half day conch/snorkel/iguana island tour with Caicos Dream Tours.. Looking forward to returning in 2017.
