This holiday villa rental is situated in the highly desirable Turtle Cove area of Providenciales (Provo), Turks and Caicos Islands, fronting directly on the Turtle Cove Canal, at the footpath to Grace Bay Beach - literally a two minute walk from your front door to the magnificent white sandy beach!
Gumbo Cottage shares a boat dock with Limbo Cottage directly on the Turtle Cove Canal. All other villa facilities are strictly private i.e. they share common architecture, a boat dock and great views of the ocean but nothing else! This vacation villa rental in the Caribbean has a delightful swimming pool, gazebo and coral stone terrace all set amid palm trees and tropical landscaping.
Gumbo Cottage's bright kitchen has all the modern appliances you could need during your vacation and a generous breakfast bar.
The upper floor has two bedroom, one with a king size bed, Italian tile floors and beamed ceiling, and another bedroom with a queen size bed. Gumbo Cottage also has a TV in each bedroom and, of course, each bedroom has its own private bathroom. This holiday cottage's downstairs separate suite also has a comfortable but much smaller living area with TV and a small kitchen.
The bedroom in Gumbo Cottage's downstairs separate suite also has a king size bed, TV and, of course, its own private bathroom.
Note: The air conditioning is metered in order to discourage use with the doors and windows open. It is not expensive if used judiciously and you are not charged for the first $150 per week in usage, after which there is a charge per kilowatt hour at market price. There is a separate, easy to read, digital AC meter in the hallway where you may monitor AC usage if you wish. There are 2 separate air conditioning systems in this villa, so you only need to cool certain parts as needed.
This Caribbean cottage gets a comfortable, almost constant trade wind, so it would be rare to exceed the AC allotment during your vacation.
Great open concept living area, nice views and private pool.
I am a big fan of the traditional gingerbread architecture of the Caribbean and found this property really charming. It felt intimate and like a "home" instead of a rental property. Nice pool and location.
