Sandra from Miami, FL - August 2017
Everything about our stay at Villa Islander was wonderful. The house is as beautiful as pictured, with exquisite attention to every detail in its architecture and decor. The location is idyllic, very private but yet close to nice restaurants and resorts. Alessandro is a wonderful host, always available and ensuring our every question or request was taken care of. He made us feel very welcomed in his beautiful house. He does a great job at maintaining the property in perfect condition, with daily housekeeping, local cell phone, security and even food and drinks to welcome us. Our family truly enjoyed our time at this unique property. We highly recommended it. Thank you once again Alessandro!
Jon from Richmond, VA - November 2017
Our stay at Villa Islander was an absolute dream. We've vacationed in Turks and Caicos before and Villa Islander has set the standard. We were completely spoiled! Amazing vacation. Thank you Alessandro.
Richard from New York, NY - January 2017
Exceptionally beautiful property which was well located just steps off the Grace Bay Beach. Very interesting Kundig-inspired architecture. Property is very new and is well suited to entertaining a nice sized group of family or friends. Very well appointed with everything you need on site. Kind and courteous staff make the vacation effortless. Snorkeling is available right out front with much to see in the crystal clear water. The House and pool are gorgeous and indeed look as good as the website photos. It is tempting to never leave the property but much is actually available within easy walking distance whether you are looking to hangout at a local beach bar or take long walks on the Grace Bay Beach. 15 minute stroll up the beach can get you to a largely undeveloped and empty beach. We were met at the Rental car facility by Alessandro who took us straight to the home and offered his assistance with anything we might need during the week. A great personal touch.
Ann from Columbus, OH - February 2017
This home is every bit as wonderful as the amazing photos depict! We loved the location, close to everything, including the short private walk to the beach, but also quiet, on a short sleepy road. Comfortable beds, a really nice pool and outdoor areas, big bathrooms and great showers with good pressure! We loved having drinks on the upper deck and also great seating for the six of us to watch movies together in the evening. The owners were so easy to communicate with and made our stay very comfortable. Would be thrilled to return!
Berto from Houston, TX - April 2017
This Villa is fantastic with great service. I will give 10 out 10 points. It is nicely located with easy access to the Beach. It is secluded, open concept Villa with a private entry and nightly service guard.
Rachelle from New York, NY - May 2017
I stayed at the Villa Islander with 3 friends for a quick getaway. It is hard to come up with words to describe the magic of this home. We all agreed it was the most beautiful place we'd ever stayed. The layout is perfect, plenty of room to relax, we enjoyed every square inch. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with spa-like bathrooms and wonderful linens. The kitchen has everything you could need, beautiful dishes and serving pieces, every meal felt special. The living area is very comfortable and the cable and Netflix came in handy on our rainy day. We enjoyed evening and mornings on the roof deck, toasting to our luck in being able to stay here. The windows make you feel like you are outside yet the gorgeous landscaping provides a lot of privacy. We spent a lot of time in the lovely pool and walked every day down the beautiful path to the beach. Alessandro was a dream and provided us with everything we needed including groceries, a cake for a special occasion and a personal greeting and goodbye. Richard (the security guard) was wonderful, not only giving us piece of mind but also setting up beach chairs every morning on the beach. The house is in a perfect location, walking distance to several wonderful restaurants and a quick cab ride to a great grocery store. We had one rainy day at the house but we didn't mind staying inside this incredible home, watching movies. The beach was very quiet and serene with very few people nearby. Snorkeling was wonderful right off the beach, we originally thought we might do a boat trip to snorkel but there was no need, we saw sea stars, a nurse shark, lion fish, tons of other tropical fish and an octopus! I can't say enough about this house and the location, as beautiful as it is in the photos it took our breath away in person. Don't hesitate to book this home, I can't wait to go back!
Hunter from Austin, TX - June 2017
The only word that comes to mind when thinking about our time at Villa Islander is "Perfection!" I've been thinking about how to leave a review on this home for the last 2 days, and I know that no matter what, there are no amounts of properly placed words or sufficient adjectives to do this home justice. Villa Islander is truly a place that must be experienced in person in order to be fully appreciated. The photos that Alessandro has provided on the listing do the property about 70% justice, the other 30% you cannot truly appreciate until you are walking down the hallway of glass at 4 pm bathed in afternoon light or lounging in the pool watching the day go by with a handful of your closest friends. It's only in those moments that you can really appreciate the design and effort that went into each and every detail of building this home. Alessandro was the most gracious host during our trip and spent several hours making sure everything about our trip went perfectly. Even accommodating last minute when our flight arriving was delayed but our friends were arriving without us, and then making sure he met with us once we finally arrived, helping us figure out our lost baggage and even getting on the phone with AA himself to make sure the luggage driver knew exactly where to go on the island. The home has all the modern amenities you might need and even some you wish you didn't have (like great WiFi when you are trying to shut down from the real world!). There was even a local cell phone provided in the house for making calls for dinner reservations, etc. and was great to have with us so we could enjoy our trip and still be contacted about our missing luggage so we didn't have to wait around the house for the bags to get there. Again, there are no amounts of words that can properly explain how great our trip was here at Villa Islander, so if you are looking for a private home that can fit your family or yourself with 7 of your closest friends don't consider anywhere other than here!
Alex from Switzerland - July 2017
We (a group of 6, incl. 2 kids) stayed at Alessandro's villa for 10 days in July. Our entire stay was perfect, Alessandro is a great and very attentive host, the villa is brand new and just perfect (4 spacious bed rooms, nice pool and garden) and the almost private beach is only 3 min. down the sand path. You can't go wrong with this choice. Absolutely recommended!!
Melissa from Dallas, TX - August 2017
Turks and Caicos is an island with extraordinarily beautiful waters. Villa Islander is a contemporary property well furnished and stocked. It is a very short walk to the beach. The home has security personnel from 6 pm-dawn and daily house-keeping. We were greeted by Alejandro, the owner, at the car rental location and escorted to the villa where he gave us a thorough tour of the home and all of it's many features including, Netflix, surround sound... He had Prosecco, coffee, creamer, some snacks and smoked salmon waiting in the kitchen. He made several restaurant recommendations of which he was spot on! The owner, his security details and house keeper were very accommodating. We had a wonderful time full of laughs, sun, water sports, fun, food and rest. We highly recommend Villa Islander.
Adam from Miami, FL - November 2017
A beautiful hideaway. 10 min from the airport yet a world away. The house is gorgeous, inside and out and the beach is private with beautiful waters. I highly recommend. Alessandro is the perfect host…5 stars!
Steven - November 2017
Amazing house w beautiful architecture. House was nothing short of amazing, every suite was ultra private.
Anna from Philadelphia, PA - December 2017
We stayed at Villa Islander over Christmas and loved it! We shared the villa with another family that we've traveled with many times. The villa was comfortable and modern and staffed with very friendly people. While not situated on the beach, it was a stone’s throw on a sandy path. While there, we rented bikes, which came in handy for riding into town, and a rental car is a must. A chef is available, and we utilized her for one dinner. A lovely time was had by all!
Susan from New York, NY - December 2017
We loved the Villa Islander for our family of 7 adults and would stay again if we come back to Provo. The location was great and the house was very private. The owner had lived in Bali and the house reflected his experiences there through his use of objects, lamps and artwork to decorate the house and through the beautiful landscaping that made the house private. Great sunsets and ocean view from the upper area. Windows created a "glass house" and walls and ceilings were concrete that resembled aged wood. Bedrooms and bathrooms were all very private and spotless. Since our children are all adults, the separate two bedroom guest house worked well for us. We spent time together by the pool or in the large open living room/dining room/kitchen space. The beach was only about a 3-4 minute walk down a sandy path. We appreciated the staff's friendliness and hard work (Zelma the housekeeper and Richard the caretaker). Our vacation was free of any stress and we had a wonderful trip. Thank you!
Brian from New York, NY- February 2018
We absolutely loved our Holiday and look forward to staying here again. Alessandro & team were fantastic.
Renn from New York, NY- March 2018
Paradise Found. This Villa was spectacular. Villa Islander exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return. Alessandro (house manager/owner) was very attentive to our needs. He has gone to great length to decorate the home with artifacts from around the world, all the while, maintaining a cozy homey feeling. It should also be noted that he designed and built the home! Very tastefully done. One of my favorite elements of the property was the landscaping. The home is discreetly nestled amongst lush greenery with extensive landscape lighting. The house honors the natural landscape and does not stick out. Oh yeah, there is a sandy trail trough the head high greenery that leads to the best beach in the Caribbean! Truly fantastic.
Kristen from New York, NY - March 2018
VILLA ISLANDER IS AMAZING! My fashion photo crew was there to work, but the care taken and the wonderful people attached to Villa Islander were incredible! The Villa offered a peaceful, stunningly designed & relaxing ambiance for the clients and photographer to unwind at end of day. I cannot say enough great things about the Villa. It would be the perfect place for a vacation, as well as a base for those traveling for business.
Jill from Raleigh, NC - March 2018
Simply amazing! From the airport arrival and pick up by Antoinette to the greeting at Villa Islander from Alessandro, our vacation started smoothly and seamlessly. Villa Islander is stunning with a great layout, dramatic views and easy access to the beach. The home is well equipped and Alessandro, Richard and Zelma took care of any of our needs. We can't wait to return.
Lisa from Quogue, NY – March 2018
Alessandro’s place is even more beautiful than the photos show. He has a great team and they made our stay seamless. The location was perfect and we were never more than fifteen minutes away from any restaurant we wanted to visit. The beach was beautiful and we never wanted to leave. Alessandro’s home is truly paradise!
Maria from Pittsburgh, PA - April 2018
Architecturally stunning, gorgeous views, comfortable, clean, kid friendly, I could go on! Not a detail missed, from daily maid and laundry service to beach chairs and umbrellas set up and waiting for you every morning. Our stay at Villa Islander was tranquil and blissful which is not usually the case when traveling with four children. Alessandro was a most gracious and accommodating host who made sure all of our needs were met! Thank you Alessandro, we hope to return soon!
Mahari from Philadelphia, PA – April 2018
Alessandro was an excellent host. He responded immediately during the booking process. He arranged transportation to/from the airport in T&C. The space was amazing and was even better than the pictures. The place was really clean and spacious. The beach was a very short walk and was perfect for our family trip. I would stay again every time we visit this beautiful island.
Taryn from New York, NY - April 2018
Alessandro’s home is stunning - thoughtfully constructed, beautifully designed, roomy, clean and comfortable. Alessandro himself is a dream to work with and we felt well taken care of. We hope to go back soon!
Lindsey – May 2018
We absolutely loved Villa Islander! The house was amazing, as was the service.
Irene from New York, NY – July 2018
Alessandro's villa is PARADISE. We rented the house for my birthday after looking for a long time and it was absolutely magical. You can tell that the house was built with love and every detail was carefully thought out and executed. The villa is steps from the beach and we swam in the sea every morning and spent the day by the gorgeous pool. The outdoor dining room was delightful. If you are coming to Provo, don't stay anywhere else.
Scott from Fort Lauderdale, FL - August 2018
Our family took a nice long weekend stay at the Villa Islander. The house is a beautiful modern design with a feel of floating above water thanks to the proximity of the pool and fountains surrounding the perimeter. Windows everywhere allow for views of the gorgeous water and lush landscaping. We loved relaxing on the second story outdoor loft with panoramic views of Grace Bay. The kids were able to walk the short sandy footpath to the beach where there was incredible snorkeling right off the beach. Our host, Alessandro was wonderful. He stocked the house with groceries for us and provided everything we could ever need including snorkeling gear. Only wish would have been to stay longer!
Jessica from Winston-Salem, NC – August 2018
As beautiful as the pictures are, they don’t do the home justice. We arrived delighted to see that our expectations were exceeded in every way. The home is comfortable, well-appointed, located perfectly and was a perfect setting for our trip this year. We hope to be back for future visits!
Marian from Plano, TX – August 2018
I don't even know where to begin. We stayed at Alessandro's Villa Islander for 3 nights for my 30th birthday (8 guests total). Everyone in the group absolutely loved this house, its amenities, the host (Alessandro), and his staff! Alessandro helped coordinate private chef meals for us. They cooked amazing food for us! He has security on the premises at all times. Alessandro was very accommodating and responsive to all our requests for my birthday. The house is remarkable. Not a detail missed, daily housekeeping, amazing pool area with pocket doors to provide indoor/outdoor space, upper roof deck with view of the beach, a private walkway to the beach (1 minute walk) and you have your own private area of the beach with umbrellas and lounge chairs. I will definitely be coming back to Turks! Thank you Alessandro!
Ali from Carrollton, TX – September 2018
Amazing place, close to everything great restaurants, bar only 5 min drive away. Make sure you rent a car so you can explore the island. Walking distance to the beach, which has is great place to snorkel. Daily Maid & security included with stay was definitely a plus.
Joshua from Los Angeles, CA – November 2018
Such an amazing house, even better host! What more can I say about our stay? We arrived as 4 couples, 8 ppl total. We were taken away as soon as we stepped foot on the property, and were even more blown away once we actually stepped inside! The pictures don’t do it enough justice. Such lovely decor! Rooms were spacious and each bathroom was marvelous and stocked w top of the line essential toiletries. Pool was amazing and even better, the beach was literally a mini walk away right in our backyard! And ohhhh the views! The sun deck up top was our favorite part of the house where u get an awesome panoramic view of the island as well as the property. Breathtaking views we will cherish forever. Honestly. Transportation was easy as well as any taxi service we requested rushed to our requests and always accommodated us because we were staying at “the villa” lol such presidential service. The host/owner Alessandro was the best as well. Always answered when we needed him and gave us an amazing tour of the property as well as well detailed instructions on how everything worked! The housekeeping lady and the security guard were always attentive and helpful as well. What an amazing stay. I’d recommend to anyone: families, couples, guys or girls trip, whatever the situation. I’ll be back for sure!
Brian from Stamford, CT – December 2018
Alessandro‘s house was everything we hoped it would be: Beautiful Clean New Safe/Secure Fun Memorable. Alessandro met us at the airport and took us to the house. When the front door opened...we were speechless. The house, furniture and decorations were breathtaking. We were immediately introduced to the care taker, Richard, who helped with the luggage and getting us settled in. 4 couples began the vacation of a lifetime. Spacious living room, kitchen and dining room allowed us to stay together and enjoy each other‘s company, laughs and cooking. We cooked in two nights and explored restaurants the other two nights. Our day started on the observation deck with coffee while watching and listening to the waves crash. After breakfast, Richard set up our eight beach chairs and we headed to the beach for fun in the sun. The beach was a very short walk through a private walkway by house & pool. It felt like we owned our own beach! At night, after dinner, we spent our time by the pool listening to music, playing cards, and catching up. At night, each couple headed to their rooms, and experienced a wonderful night sleep in the 4 king beds After breakfast the smiling housekeeper showed up to do the House keeping and our personal laundry service :-) I would strongly recommend this house and it’s owner! Counting the days until our next visit.
Nancy from Los Angeles - December 2018
This property is absolutely stunning and I highly recommend it!! The photos, as beautiful as they are, just can't do it justice. The house itself is spectacular as is the location on a gorgeous beach that is not very populated. It is also central to Grace Bay beach and many great restaurants. Alessandro is the perfect host in every way. We loved our stay and are already plotting to come back!”
Glenn from New York, NY - January 2019
The owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and welcome. the Villa itself was fabulous. The spaces are well appointed and immaculate. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to go back there
Johanna from Miami, FL - January 2019
Alessandro, was the best host that we had until now. The house is GORGEOUS, a real paradise. We had the feeling we were in a true home because all of Alessandro’s attention. The best place to stay. We had an amazing and unforgettable experience. In love with that paradise.
Alice from Boston, MA - January 2019
Alessandro’s house is absolutely incredible in one of the most amazing locations in Turks and Caicos. The house is so thoughtfully designed, with incredible outdoor spaces, natural light, stunning pool and beautiful rooms and finishes. Alessandro is a wonderful person and host - he takes a lot of pride and care in his recommendations and ensuring you are well set up upon arrival. He stocked the fridge for us so it was ready when we arrived, booked yoga classes, restaurants, boat recommendations etc. The stay combines the best of staying at a resort / hotel, while having our own private residence. Best of all, we were a 15 second walk from what may be the most beautiful beach in the world. One of the most relaxing weekends I’ve ever had - we will definitely come back.
Keyonna from Oakland, CA - January 2019
The villa was so beautiful! Nicest on the island, the beds were comfortable and housekeeping was very prompt and quick! The chef was amazing! We definitely plan on coming back and staying in this exact villa. Alessandro was very accommodating to our early check in and late Check out. He answered every time we called, must stay!
Trevor from Westwood, MA - February 2019
Amazing Villa, awesome location w/ great service.
Four couples visited Villa Islander in Feb ‘19. The four master suites were perfect, pre-stocking the house was very convenient, location to beach and snorkeling was only a few steps away and help (Alessandro, Security Guard & House Cleaning daily) was super helpful. Golf, Massages, Food all within either a short walk or 10 min cab ride. The only minor issue was the mosquitoes at dusk when it was not windy. We would highly recommend this Villa on Grace Bay and of all the places we have visited (DR, Mexico, St Lucia, Bahamas, St Marteen, Jamaica, etc) Turks & Caicos is a return trip in our future and we will be looking at Villa Islander again.
Diana W. from Chicago, IL - February 2019
Alessandro deserves all the fabulous reviews he is getting. This house is magnificent: clean, modern, comfortable, well-appointed. The pool is a special bonus and a place we spent many hours. Alessandro is a very responsive host, kind and sweet. He is concerned with his guests' satisfaction and we couldn't say enough good things about him. The nearest beach is a very short walk away (maybe three minutes) and the waters here are calm. Beaches at Turks and Caicos are world renown for good reason and Grace Bay, where this home is, truly meets the definition of perfect beach. We were there with two of our adult children and our little grandchildren (5 and 1.5) and the house was perfect for them. There is a pack and play there, as well as a high chair, water toys, and plenty of space for them to walk around.
Robert from Allentown, PA - March 2019
First and foremost, the home is so beautiful that the photos don't do it justice. It is ultra modern with every amenity you could ask for. The rooms are outfitted with comfortable beds and beautiful bathrooms and maintain great privacy despite the home's large entertainment areas. The outdoor area and pool somehow made going to the beach our second choice. The home, by the way, is pretty much right between Beaches and the Wymara resort - a gorgeous stretch of Grace Bay. Through the backyard, the home has access to a private sand path directly to this area of the beach. Our group consisted of six adults and two toddlers, and it suited us perfectly. Between the pool, roof deck, entertainment areas, private rooms, private beach and proximity to the restaurants / bars, there is something for everyone and never a dull moment. Bottom line, the home is over-the-top special. Aside from the house, Alessandro is a really incredible and gracious host. Prior to our arrival, Alessandro had worked with us to fully stock the fridge / pantry with a full list of food and alcohol for the week, set up rental car(s) and airport shuttle services, provide thoughtful recommendations on restaurants and activities in the area, and added a second crib and highchair (we have twins). Additionally, Alessandro has a maid visit the home daily to clean, wash towels, and collect any laundry. That certainly was a nice added touch, and allowed us to focus on "vacationing." Generally speaking, he was always available (and quickly) when we had questions. Our family loved the trip and we can't wait to go back!
Mark from College Station, TX - April 2019
This property is absolutely stunning and the location is as good as it gets! The owner advertises it as “not beach front”, but I disagree a little as there is no property between you and the ocean except for a short 50-75 yard manicured path to Grace Bay Beach, rated #1 Beach in the World in 2018 on Trip Advisory! Also, it’s critical to understand that this isn’t your typical holiday rental; the owner Alessandro makes this a full resort experience. This property has a gated complex, on site security, daily set-up and take-down of beach chairs and umbrellas. They provided an amazing chef for for 3 of our dinners! Also, every day there is a lady that comes through, makes the beds, cleans the entire property top to bottom, and makes it brand new again. We also had massages on site 2 of the days, and all is arranged by the gracious owner Alessandro who acts as the concierge for your island experience, and does an exceptional job. Finally, but importantly, he even met us at the airport, gave us fresh chilled bottled water, and personally escorted us in our rental car to the property which he designed and built himself (he is a skilled architect and had a really amazing vision for this beautiful property). It is modern in every way with very effective air conditioning, and is very open and welcoming. I can’t say enough great things about this property, do yourself a favor and visit this one of a kind island, and stay directly on the best beach in the world at Villa Islander!
Bruna from Sao Paulo, Brazil – May 2019
Espetacular! Um refúgio na ilha. Quartos super espaçosos, estrutura da casa super moderna, piscina aquecida e acesso muito fácil à praia! Atendimento impecável do Alessandro, dono da residência! Voltaremos com certeza!
Amy from New York, NY – June 2019
We had such a great experience at this villa. Everything was so well done from the decor, the location, hospitality and service. Alessandro was super helpful with local tips and was readily available when we needed him. There was security and housekeeping so we felt like we were in our own private resort. The small pathway to our little private section of the beach felt so special. Definitely take advantage of the private chef. The food was delicious! We can't wait to go back again!
Deepali from Scarsdale, NY – June 2019
My family and I stayed at Villa Islander for four nights/five days... and we had the best time. The Villa itself is absolutely stunning, with such meticulous details around the design aesthetics. Alessandro was so gracious to greet my family at the airport and help us get to the villa from the airport, and took the time to explain all the amenities. He also helped put together a fabulous chef dinner in the Villa on our first night. This villa was exactly how it looked in the pictures, with privacy in each of the bedrooms with two of the bedrooms in its own separate cottages. It is the perfect setting for a family vacation and/or a group of friends. I would absolutely recommend this particular villa to any family and friend traveling to Turks and Caicos. We had a great time, with a perfect location — this villa is within a one minute walk to the beach, and five minutes drive to any local restaurant and shopping area. Richard was at the security gate day and night and made us feel very safe and secure. There’s absolutely nothing to worry about when renting this villa in terms of the high quality of the amenities, and the location itself.
Jorge from Santiago, Chile – July 2019
Villa islander is a five star design and architecture of a house. What a wonderful stay!!!!! Everything is well thought in this villa, all details in the house are carefully taken care of. Right at one of the best beaches in the world (walking right out of the garden). Great pool for after a day at the beach. Amazing view from the roof terrace for a cocktail at sunset. Great living room / dining room and kitchen for quality time with the family as well as outside terrace for barbecues. All rooms are well designed and very comfortable. And special remarks on Alessandro the owner. He is always willing to offer his help in whatever may be needed. He personally met us on arrival and went with us to the airport when we left to say goodbye. We strongly recommend anyone interested in staying at a great place in the Caribbean to consider this villa as a great option. Thanks Alessandro for a great stay. You really have a piece of art in this property and all our family will take back great memories of an amazing stay this past week in Turks and Caicos.
Kelvin from New York, NY - July 2019
Amazing house! Great design! Friendly and thoughtful host! Wonderful stay!
Hugh from London, UK
It’s an amazing modern property. Very comfortable with full air conditioning throughout - totally clean. We were a family of 5 from the UK - with kids aged 21, 20 and 17 - it worked really well for us. Cleaning during day and security guard at night are there at no charge. Beach is 80 meters away - turn left not right as to the right is a large resort type hotel. The views are as described. Good local restaurants and bars.
