The main Turks and Caicos island from a tourism point of view is Providenciales. Most of the island’s population of 22,000 people live on Providenciales. It is also the westernmost isle. This is where the famous beach called Grace Bay Beach is located. The beach which is 3 miles (4.8 kilometres) long is truly one of the most exquisite in the Caribbean with perfect soft white sand and crystal clear waters. This is also where you will find many of our luxury villa rentals in Turks and Caicos. Some of our favourite standalone villas on seven mile beach include Amazing Grace, Saving Grace, and Sugar Kube.
In addition we have some exquisite luxury Turks and Caicos villas located on Grace Bay. They have the advantage of having all the space and luxury of a villa but with access to amazing communal facilities such as spas, pools, kids clubs, restaurants, bars and fitness facilities. The one thing they all have in common is that they will have been personally inspected by us and they will all have to reach the Exceptional criteria to be featured with us. Some of our favourite Turks and Caicos rental properties are located in the Somerset on Grace Bay, The Palms, the Sailrock resort and the super modern and contemporary Gansevoort.
The main island of Providenciales is also the gateway to Parrot Cay which is a stunning private island comprising of about one thousand acres of land.
