Provo’s famous north shore takes center stage in this distinctive oceanfront villa with sweeping views of the island’s coastline, from Grace Bay to the east and Blue Hills to the west. Reef Tides is a spectacular Turks and Caicos vacation villa set in over one acre of carefully landscaped grounds with more than 200 feet of ocean frontage and a low-tide beach.
Facing a shallow reef within the Princess Alexandra Marine Park ensures complete privacy thanks to limited boat activity and gives guests access to their own private snorkeling area.
Reef Tides is a gracious open-plan Caribbean pod-style villa with rooms built around the swimming pool, designed to showcase the magnificent ocean view. The house is situated very centrally in one of Provo’s most prestigious neighborhoods ensuring all amenities are no more than a 5 to 10 minute drive away. Babalua Beach, a quiet white sandy beach, is a short stroll from the house. Thanks to Reef Tides’ elevated position, pleasant breezes and comfortable temperatures can be enjoyed all year round.
You step up to the house through elegant cathedral-arch wooden front doors into the main level where tropical courtyard gardens and covered terra-cotta walkways lead to the main bedroom pods. Mirror-image master bedrooms with full en-suite bathrooms and king-size beds are to the east and west, each with its own private balcony to enjoy your early morning coffee. The third bedroom with en-suite bathroom and queen-size bed enjoys an uninterrupted view of the ocean on the west side of the house while the large well-equipped eat-in kitchen is to the east. The spacious indoor family room occupies a central position and offers a comfortable sitting area for TV or movie watching and a more formal dining option for up to 10 guests. An exterior staircase leads down to the fourth bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom, queen-size bed and a sitting area large enough to accommodate a child’s cot or rollaway bed.
Outside on the main level there are a variety of relaxed sofas and armchairs around the pool patio which guests might select according to the sun’s position or whether you want to see pelicans dipping into the ocean or the sun setting over the horizon. There is a large outdoor dining table to seat 10.
The interiors of Reef Tides are a careful blend of Caribbean elegance and modern functionality decorated in a palette to reflect the colors and textures of the Tropics.
The lush gardens are magical with manicured hedges and meandering footpaths framing selected views of the water. Follow one path to a thatched gazebo and the low-tide beach from where you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling among the small corals close by or digging for conch shells. Follow another path to a secret ocean lookout. Yet another footpath leads to a self-contained yoga studio built from island cut stone. This is a garden designed for hide-and-seek.
Private yoga instruction is available by arrangement. Guests are also welcome to a 15% discount off diving and snorkeling excursions at Caicos Adventures (www.caicosadventures.com).
