About This Listing
This unique villa was built as an octagon to capture the spectacular views available of the beautiful turquoise water of Chalk Sound. 3700 sq feet of space on 2 levels with 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, private sandy cove,42ft pool, hot tub, pool table.
This unique villa is shaped like an octagon and includes 3700 sq ft of living space on 2 levels. Both levels feature decks that overlook the tranquil, turquoise waters of Chalk Sound.
The lower level has a kitchen, living & dining area, together with 2 bedrooms and a full and half bathroom. The living room includes two couches (one is a sofa-bed), a flat screen TV, DVD player, and xbox. One of the bedrooms has a King bed with french doors that open on to the lower deck and provide magnificent views of the water, The 2nd bedroom can either be set up with a king bed or two twin beds. There is also an side entrance to another 2 piece bath and laundry area beside the pool deck.
The upper level has an great room that spans over 40ft across the back of the villa overlooking Chalk Sound. This impressive room includes two separate sitting areas with 4 couches/loveseats, a bar, and pool table. The bar also includes an ice maker (with purified water) and a cappuccino machine. When the sun goes down and the water views are gone, there is also a large 55' 3D LED TV complete with 3D glasses and DVD player that you can enjoy.
Also included on the upper level are 3 bedrooms. One with a queen bed and an en-suite with a shower, one with a king bed and en-suite with a tub & shower, and a smaller bedroom with two twin beds. There is also a separate 2 piece bath close to the entrance.
The outside of the property offers a Weber BBQ, 2 dining areas and 7 separate sitting areas so that you can have sun or shade at any time of the day (or just get away from the rest of your group - discreetly of course...lol). There is an impressive 42ft long infinity-style pool that is great for doing laps, but also great fun for the family since it is just 4 1/2 feet deep. There are several pool noodles, squirt guns and pool toys are available for your use (and a little machine that blows them up for you!). If the average 75 degree (20C) night time temperatures are too cold for you, there is also a 6-person hot tub available.
The property also features a wonderful, private, sandy cove that is great for younger kids. By the water there is also a dock, and two small kayaks that you can use to explore Chalk Sound.
The villa itself is located about just 10 minutes (5 miles or 8km) from the airport, and 2 miles (3km) from the turn off to Chalk Sound Drive. It is also just 1-2 miles from what I think are the two most beautiful beaches in the world: Taylor Bay and Sapodilla Bay. At these beaches, on a busy day you might find two dozen people sharing a beautiful sandy beach that spans 1000 feet. The water is crystal clear, and at Taylor Bay, you can usually walk out at least 200 feet before it even begins to feel deep.
Also, just 2 miles from the villa is one of the best restaurants on the island, Las Brisas, but if you want to head towards Grace Bay which is about a 10-15 minute drive, you can find dozens of 4-5 star restaurants that would rival the best restaurants in any major city of the world. Whether you want French, Italian, Thai, Japanese, it is all available to you, but you can just as easily find burgers, pizzas or some local chicken or conch restaurants if you want.
There is a convenience store and gas station located just 2 miles (3km) from the property, but for major grocery shopping there is a 'Quality Supermarket' about 5 miles away, or the main IGA supermarket about 10 miles away. Everything is imported, so prices are quite high - especially if you are looking for a specific brand of cereal, toothpaste or coffee - so bring what you can.
I really recommend renting a car - there are several companies to choose from on the island and usually a good selection of vehicles. There is no "official" taxi service, so you could get charged different rates for the same trip depending on the driver, and almost always more than a full days car rental!
Other Things to Note
The rental rate ranges from $550 to $995 per night depending on the dates requested.
Please just leave the villa the same as when you arrived. Keep in mind that utility costs are 6-10 times what they are in the US & Canada, so turn off the lights and turn up the a/c when you leave
The house was immaculate and amazing. Set in a beautiful spot on the sound, the propery has an amazing cove perfect for swimming and launching the kayaks. The house itself couldn't have been better, easily housing the seven of us. It's so big, sometimes I forgot there was a second floor above the kitchen and living room. We grilled almost every night and ate out on the verandah, overlooking the water, and listening to the waves and the wind in the trees.
It was great staying away from downtown as well. It couldn't have been more idyllic.
Our group of friends stayed for 3 nights for a wedding, and we could not have asked for a better weekend! The house is great, exactly as described on the site, the private beach is the only one I could see from kayaking and seeing the other houses which made a huge difference. The pool is the perfect temperature. We didn't have any neighbors so were able to play our music from inside of the house. We also rented his car which helped going to the resort and back. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed a ten day vacation during April 2014, at David McGee's TCI Chalk Sound "Incredible Views" 5 bedroom Villa.
We highly recommend this property to other couples/families seeking a private, beautiful, peaceful stay in Turks & Caicos.
All of the comforts & amenities of home, with plenty of fun & luxurious "extras", such as the swimming pool, hot tub, BBQ, outdoor decks, hammock gazebo, dock, private sandy cove, billiards table, multiple tvs & movie & gaming options. The lush high tropical greenery surrounding the property ensured our complete privacy while sunning & swimming outdoors. We only saw and heard other people when we left the property & drove to populated areas.
We appreciated all of the high quality touches such as excellent brand name appliances, kitchenware, bedding, towels, & full home air conditioning plus ceiling fans, comfy & clean furnishings.
The villa was very clean, comfortable, & we settled in to a fabulous stay & were reluctant to leave! We enjoyed the villa very much, & exploring the island in our rental convertible.
Thank you, David McGee & Family!
