Providenciales (or Provo, as it's known by locals) is the most popular and touristic island in Turks and Caicos, and with good reason - it features world-class coral reefs, pristine landscapes, and some of the best beaches in the world. Providenciales villa rentals are designed to let guests enjoy as much of the warm turquoise water and soft sand that make this destination such a well-loved favorite among seasoned beach lovers.
That said, villas in Providenciales come in all shapes and sizes. The first step to renting a Provo villa, then, is deciding on how much space you need, as well as the approximate age of the guests in your group and if they have any special needs.
From there, you may want to consider where exactly in Providenciales you want to stay. Grace Bay Beach is the most popular choice, thanks to it being named the best beach in the Caribbean by so many different publications so many different times, as well as being named “Best Beach in the World” by TripAdvisor in 2022. This 3-mile strip of beach is the heart of Provo and where you'll find most restaurants and resorts, making it a great choice for first time visitors.
If you're looking for a slightly quieter alternative to Grace Bay, then Long Bay Beach may be for you. It's shallower and breezier than Grace Bay, making it great for jet skiing and windsurfing, as well as for families with smaller children.
And if you want even more seclusion and quiet, then Chalk Sound makes for a great choice as well. A national park composed of a turquoise lagoon and a plethora of small rocky islands, it is home to some of Turks and Caicos' most breathtaking landscapes.
No matter which part of Provo you choose, or if you have no preference at all, your Rental Escapes reservations specialist can present you with the best Providenciales villas for your dates and party.
Just as Provo is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, so too is it home to some of the world's best beach villas. Luxury Providenciales villas tend to be beachfront, with distinct architecture, immaculate decors, and every modern convenience and amenity accounted for.
That said, it's the sense of privacy and seclusion that really separates Provo villas from nearby hotels and resorts. Once you experience the freedom of moving from your private infinity pool and towards the white sand of your own private strip of beach, there really is no going back.
With its powdery white sand, warm turquoise waters, and world-famous sunsets, Grace Bay Beach tops many Caribbean travelers' lists of must-visit destinations. Grace Bay luxury villas are designed around delivering guests the best of this beach paradise, while also providing a measure of privacy that you wouldn't necessarily expect for a beach that's this internationally renowned.
Some popular options include:
Beach Villa Paprika: From the moment you drive through its front gates and gaze upon its neo-Classical architecture, you'll realize that Villa Paprika is no ordinary beach villa. Laid out over the sugary sands of Grace Bay, the villa lies right in front of Smith's Reef, allowing for world-class snorkeling to be had right off the villa itself. Coconut palm trees, tropical flowers, a shaded gazebo, and both a large saltwater pool and a smaller kiddie pool further adorn the outdoor living area, while the interior is bright, airy, and well-appointed. An unmatched choice for snorkeling lovers.
Villa Islander: A perfect fusion of wood, concrete, water, and garden, Villa Islander is a modernist masterpiece that redefines what a beach villa can be. Its unique design – including its open floor plan, wrap-around decks, and mosaic-clad swimming pool - evokes a sense of awe in guests, while its location steps from Grace Bay Beach means that you won't have to travel far to keep that awe alive. Admiring the sunset over Grace Bay from the rooftop pergola is an unmatched experience unto itself.
Villa Oasis: Oasis is a combination of two gorgeous villas – the 5-bedroom Seascape and the 8-bedroom Seaclusion – that can be rented either separately or in a pair to make a 13-bedroom estate. No matter which you choose, you'll be treated to the kind of handcrafted luxury that only a passionate villa owner's attention to detail can provide, as well as a privileged location directly facing the stunning beauty of Grace Bay Beach.
If you're looking for that feeling of unspoiled island paradise, then Chalk Sound, by the southwestern coast of Providenciales, is simply perfect. Chalk Sound villas are designed to deliver the ultimate in serenity and seclusion, while offering views of landscapes that may be difficult to see any other way, giving you the feeling of having your very own little part of Provo.
Some great examples include:
Villa Osprey: With its lush tropical vegetation, tiki hut, and infinity pool gazing out over Silly Bay, Villa Osprey delivers a Zen-like ambiance that blends seamlessly with its sense of luxury. It also has flexible bedroom configurations, with three of its master bedrooms offering unobstructed ocean views, making it a great choice for families.
Hesperides House: Named after the mythical Greek garden set at the edge of the world, Hesperides House has just the right balance of seclusion, tropical landscaping, and modern amenities to let you feel like you escaped to another world - only one that still has all your favorite conveniences and securities. It features just as much exterior as interior space, with an open concept that is designed to allow guests to appreciate its incredible coastline location on Chalk Sound as much as possible. A true getaway.
Alta Bella: Located on a cliff overlooking the turquoise waters of Chalk Sound and surrounded by beautiful, lush landscaping you'll find Alta Bella, a true testament to the best of island living. With over 2,000 square feet of decks and pools and 1,400 square feet of outdoor living area, this villa is designed to let guests enjoy the absolute best of Chalk Sound. Whether you're lounging by the pool, relaxing by the jacuzzi, or gathering around the firepit, this villa creates the kinds of memories that you'll cherish forever.
For those looking for a quieter alternative to Grace Bay that is still close to all the action (or at least as much action as you'll find in Provo), Long Bay provides an excellent alternative. Villas here are just as luxurious as their Grace Bay counterparts, and they're often beachfront by shallow strips of shoreline, making them great choices for families with young children.
Some top choices include:
Triton Luxury Villa: Set out over 10,000 square feet of prime beachfront real estate in Long Bay you'll find the postcard-worthy Triton Luxury Villa. Every luxurious little detail you can think of is covered by this villa, including seven well-appointed bedrooms, two pools, a private tennis court, an outdoor movie theatre with a fire pit, tennis and bocce ball, a villa butler, and so much more. An ideal location to enjoy the best of Long Bay, learn to kiteboard, or just kick back, relax, and enjoy true luxury.
La Dolce Vita: With its neo-Classical exterior and Modernist interior, the $25 million Dolce Vita is a true exercise in contrast - and yet it all combines to create one of the most luxurious experiences on Provo. At 9-bedrooms, there's no shortage of space, while each room is sure to surprise and delight even the most discerning of guests with its high standards and attention to detail. A villa that truly lives up to its name.
Pearl West: Along with its sister villas, Pearl East and Lidija House, Pearl West offers some of the best accommodations on Long Bay, especially for multiple groups traveling together. Each of these villas features extensive outdoor space and a privileged beachfront location that's perfect for windsurfing, jet skiing, or just relaxing by the sand. They also feature open concept designs and high, vaulted ceilings, so you can enjoy that breezy atmosphere Long Bay is known for at any time. Each of the three villas can be rented individually or in a group, making them especially great for weddings and corporate events
While a tourist visa is not required for stays less than 90 days, a valid passport and a return ticket is required to enter Turks and Caicos.
Most visitors to Turks and Caicos will land in Providenciales International Airport. From there, an airport transfer can be arranged by your concierge to your villa.
That said, many guests do choose to rent a car to explore the island. Driving is easy, though do be aware that cars drive on the left side of the road.
In addition to the airport transfer, your Rental Escapes concierge can also arrange a rental car or a private driver for your stay.
Weather-wise, the best time to visit Providenciales is from February-April. This is when you'll see the mildest temperatures and the lowest chance of precipitation.
If you want to get a great deal on a Providenciales villa, though, then shoulder season from May-July may be your best bet. Temperatures are still very mild, and there's only a slightly elevated risk of rain in the afternoons.
Of course, for many, December and January will be the best times to visit, simply because that's when family and friends have time off. If that's the case, you're advised to book as far in advance as possible, since Provo tends to sell out quickly for the holidays.
Go Snorkeling: Provo is home to some of the loveliest coral reefs in the Caribbean, and the best part is just how accessible they are. In fact, several of our villas feature great snorkeling directly in their backyards! If you're taking an excursion, though, then Bight Reef is especially recommended.
Visit Chalk Sound: Whether driving through or, better yet, exploring by kayak, Chalk Sound has some of the most picturesque landscapes you'll find in Provo thanks to its National Park status. Be sure to spend some time in nearby Sapodilla Beach when you're done – it's breathtaking.
Relax By the Beach: Of course, the number one thing to do in Turks and Caicos is to relax by the beach. Whether it's Grace Bay, Long Bay, Leeward, or Turtle Tail, this really is home to some of the very best beaches in the world. Grab a drink, a book, a lounge chair, and enjoy some of the softest sand and most turquoise water you'll ever experience.
Turks and Caicos is known for its seafood, especially its world class conch. Dishes tend to be prepared with several influences, including Caribbean, African, and American cuisine. Popular dishes include conch fritters, conch ceviche, lionfish, and johnny cakes. And if you're visiting between August and March, be sure to try the grilled lobster while it's still open season!
Private chef service and villa pre-stocking can also be arranged by your concierge, so you can be sure that all meals match your tastes and diet and that your villa has all your favorite foods and drinks ready when you arrive.
