About This Listing
Beautiful 1 BDR ocean-view condo. Large balcony faces the water offering outside eating, private sunbathing. Full kitchen, 2 swimming pools, jacuzzi, and a quiet ambiance across the street from Grace Bay beach.
1 bedroom condo in a gorgeous setting across the street from 12 mile GRACE BAY beach on Turks and Caicos. 2 pools and 2 jacuzzis. Parking, wireless internet, daily maid service optional, great staff. Steps away from marina, restaurants, and night life. Turtle Cove offers a marina, restaurants, a cute breakfast cafe and a rental shop for bikes, cars and snorkeling equipment. The beach is never crowded and usually you have complete privacy - the same goes for the excellent snorkeling. Read about Provo on Trip Advisor - it's close to Paradise!
My wife and I had such an amazing trip! The location of Heather's place could not have been better. We loved spending our days at the beautiful beaches and cannot wait to plan a trip back to Turks, but next time we will bring our son with us!
What a spectacular destination for sunshine and relaxation! Thanks, Heather!!!
We just got back from 1 week at Heather's condo in Turks & Caicos and had a fabulous time. The condo's Turtle Cove location is great; there is a nice beach nearby with off-shore snorkeling and it's convenient to both Grace Bay and the beaches off South Dock Rd (Sapodilla Bay, etc.). It's perfect if you want to be near the Grace Bay hotel hub bub, but not right in it. That said, you will need a car to get around, and we recommend Heather's suggestion of renting from nearby Scooter Bob. He'll hook you up with whatever you need and is cheaper than the rentals at the airport.
As far as amenities, the condo has most everything you need. In particular we were thrilled to have a washer + dryer, wifi, and a full kitchen. We like to cook on our vacations and were able to do so at the condo. That said, the kitchen isn't decked out for cooking. It could use newer cookware, more knives, more cutting boards, etc. However, Heather told us this in advance so we were prepared and managed just fine.
It's worth noting that La Vista Azul is a "condo resort". It's like a condo complex run like a hotel. There is daily cleaning service if you want it and there is reception to help you out. It's not crowded like a hotel, however, which we appreciated.
Overall 2 thumbs up. Heather was helpful in advance of the trip and the condo was just what we bargained for. Highly recommended if you want a nice place to stay but don't want to be at a resort.
great vacation. the condo was just as it appeared in the promo pictures and was in a quiet, central location. the nearby beaches are a 5-10 minute walk but we preferred to drive to a different beach every day. unless you're content to stay in the turtle bay area, a rental car is a necessity, but can be rented nearby from "scooter bob". with taxes it runs about $50/day but allowed us to go all over to different beaches and restaurants. the condo is clean and modern with a washer dryer so pack half what you were going to!! contrary to previous reviews, the bathroom is not "grungy" but the grouting has cured so one could easily make that mistake. every day a maid cleaned and brought towels or whatever we needed. a splash in one of the 2 pools at the end of the day was a great entree to a glass of wine on the patio and dinner. hope to see you next year heather!!
We stayed at Heather's condo for our honeymoon. We chose it because it was one of the most affordable options at Turks, allowing us to be able to spend more money on external experiences and local food. Overall, we had a good experience. There were some small things about the condo itself that took away from the experience. The shower was a tad grungy. The kitchen was not fully functioning, with very limited utensils, salt/pepper, etc. So if you are intending to making your own meals for your visit, it is not well equipped. We made due for breakfasts (however there was not a flipper). The hot tub was not functioning (kept at 90 degrees - basically the same temp as the pool), not very pleasant at nighttime.
The balcony was beautiful and we spent a lot of time on it. The condo was also located in a preferable area. It was incredibly quiet, barely heard our neighbours, and La Vista Azul is not clumped together with all of the other major resorts. The staff at the condo complex were friendly and helpful. We borrowed the complementary snorkelling equipment on two occasions. Not top quality equipment but better than being forced to buy some. Heather was pleasant to communicate with. She was very prompt in responding and provided some helpful information about things to do, with recommended beaches and restaurants. Thank you Heather.
I had an amazing stay at Heather's apt. Prior to my arrival Heather gave me a lot of tips/ recommendations so I can organize my trip in Turks & Caicos. I decided to stay at heather's apt to experience the real island with its locals people. Her beautiful apt is closed to everything, the beach is right across the street from her apt, 3 min walk from restaurants and coffee shop. There's a lounge bar a gelato shop, gym & nail salon in the complex as well.. Great if you decide to stay put in the apt complex. I haven't seen Heather during my stay but her concierge Adela was very sweet and helpful for anything I needed. The locals are very nice and friendly. I toured the island via Vespa with Paradise Island and it was a fun way to see and learn about the island. I would definitely go back to Turks
My friend and I had the absolute best time in Turks & Caicos. Heather's condo at La Vista Azul is PERFECT...everything we wanted/needed to have the experience we had hoped for. Our trip was amazing, everyone in T&C is wonderful and we can't wait to go back.
Heather is incredibly kind and responsive and all the information she provided was very helpful. It was everything she said it would be.
THANK YOU HEATHER!!!!
