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.

Why Arlene and Joe Wheeler chose Providenciales - Provo

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!

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.

Can't beat this condo or this experience!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is excellent! As soon as we arrived the experience here was fantastic from beginning to end. The staff is all very friendly and helpful, and will do anything they can to enhance your experience. The condo was very clean and decorated lovely. This specific condo is fantastic, not only because of its proximity to the beach (maybe 200 yards away) but also because it is on the bottom floor and on the side so it is more private than some of the other condos in the building. You can set up virtually any experience you would like to have by simply walking up the office and asking the staff to get everything set up for you! Another wonderful thing about this condo is the private beach. When you walk out to the beach in the morning you have a reserved umbrella with however many chairs you need ready and waiting for you. Often times, you feel like you are the only one in the ocean because the condo is not nearly as large as Beaches (which is TEEMING with people), so when you go out to relax in or by the ocean very few people are out there with you. This condos location is awesome as well! There is a beach bar with fantastic food just a few steps away, and the grocery store, liquor store, fantastic restaurants, and excursions are all a short 10 minute drive away. The owners of the condo are incredibly helpful and kind! I would recommend this experience for people of all ages, and regardless of whether you are coming with a family or simply coming down with friends, this trip is PERFECT for you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience in our condo and at the resort. It is always reassuring to know that our staff is taking care of our guests and we have such a wonderful staff on property. I do want to correct one thing for any future guests and that is our condo is about 20 or 25 yards from the beach, not 200. Our closeness to the beach and the privacy of being in the corner with no one walking in front has always proved to be valuable to our guests and a great convenience. Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts. Hope you will come back in the future.

Best Island Experience Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 BR unit was clean, nicely decorated with a well stocked kitchen. The Coral Garden property has the absolutely best location on Grace Bay for snorkeling. The property managers on-site gave us an island cell phone pre-programmed with numbers for taxis, the casino, their personal numbers and just about any other service we could want to contact. They helped us to arrange for a day boat so we could snorkel in several other places as well, but Grace Bay is the best.

On the property is the very cool Somewhere café with the best conch ceviche I have ever had. Great live music several nights and very good service. We walked to the local Fish Fry on Thursday night for some of the best food and music anywhere. All in all, we loved our unit and all there is to do there. I would definitely stay in this unit again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great feedback! So glad the four of you had a great time. I love using those island phones with all the numbers programmed into it. Glad all of you liked the Somewhere Cafe - it is such a fun place with great music and food and like the Bight Reef right off the beach - all of it is just steps from the condo. Please come back any time. Our return guests are always like family to the resort and the staff. Again, thanks for your response.

The apartment was well maintained and very roomy. The whole property seemed well managed and the office staff was great. The fellow who manages the beach was fantastic. Having a reef right at the beach was a special treat. You won't get bored. I would recommend that visitors rent a car, even though there is opposite side driving. Also, bring all of your swim and snorkel swim gear with you. There are not convenient rental locations and purchases are expensive. The restaurants are very expensive, and we had mixed experiences. So, take advantage of the kitchen and plan on eating in at least part of the time.

We hope you will come back again and be guests in our condo and also the resort.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beautiful one bedroom ground floor condo with perfect water views. The condo was clean, large and with great floor plan. The location is close to everything. The bight reef in front of the condo was great for snorkeling. Saw turtles, Barracuda, Puffer fish etc. It met all our expectations and more.Lot of water activities at the location. We went diving and snorkeling with Caicos Adventures which located right at the condo complex. They are a great outfit. Owner Arlene was very kind and helpful with lot of great information. Recommend the condo and the complex without any hesitation. Every at the office were of great help also. Love to go back again.

LOVE THIS PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd trip to Coral Gardens on Grace Bay, and I always stay in this condo! I call it my "Corner of Paradise." It has nice privacy, attractive decor and furniture, a great kitchen, bright colors in each bath, and has every convenience you need for a vacation. The beautiful beach and turquoise calm water - plus a snorkeler's paradise to enjoy around a protected reef - is just steps from the door. The staff is wonderful from Matthew and Rochelle to Jerome on the beach, who call you by name on day one of your stay making you feel welcome and like a member of the family.

Right on the resort is The Somewhere Cafe - I love this place because I feel like it's a neighborhood restaurant and bar. The whole staff at Somewhere make you feel welcome with friendly smiles and eager to make sure you are comfortable all day long. Good food, music, happy hour on the second floor bar with a great sunset as your backdrop - amazing!! The island also has a huge amount of great restaurants, too.

I look so forward to being here at this place! I will definitely be coming back for a 4th time. Thanks so much!!!
