The air-conditioning is metered and charged locally to guests at current market rate.
First, an accurate star rating from our group is 50 stars! I lead the charge for 10 high school girlfriends to celebrate a momentous birthday in Turks and Caicos and each one gave Villa Mirabelle 5 stars! From start to finish, Meg and Villa Mirabelle delivered the most FABULOUS vacation we could have ever imagined. The Villa is in immaculate condition--the sofas, bedding, towels, lounge chairs, appliances etc. all felt brand new. Luxury is in the details We had the villa pre-stocked (for a fee) some staples before our arrival and they did a fabulous job picking out fruit, vegetables, cheese, beer and wine for us. LOVE! LOVE! the stereo system! Although we didn't arrive until 3p the first day, we were settled in and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset, music, and tropical drinks in no time. We used the paddle board and kayaks everyday. We had a yoga class on the pool deck and tread water each afternoon--this allowed us to exercise and talk at the same time! At the beach we pulled the lounge chairs in a big circle in the crystal clear shallow water, had Coronas with lunch, rum drinks at 5p and recounted many years of friendship, all the while creating new memories to laugh about. (We originally had several activities planned like snuba and a day trip on a rented charter boat, but we took the advice of many of the other guests and ultimately decided to spend most of our time relaxing at the villa. We are soooo glad we did!) The landscape at Mirabelle is a subtle luxury. It added so much privacy and the utmost feeling of a tropical paradise. Thank you, thank you! We are still talking about our vacation to any one that will listen!
In searching for a Villa for our family vacation, I looked at many properties. None of us had ever been to the Turks and Caicos, so an unfamiliar destination looked inviting. In reading previous reviews and viewing photos online, Villa Mirabelle seemed to have all the amenities on our wish list. Our stay the week of Nov. 9th - 16th, 2013 was quite simply, spectacular! Our party of 8 adults and 4 children, ages 9, 7, 6, and 3.... all girls by the way, were looking for a home with a large private pool, beachfront, enough personal space, and most importantly, a place that was safe for our kids to play. Well, we found it...... sandy beach, gentle breezes, warm, shallow sea water, sunshine, a 40' by 20' crystal clear pool, and tranquil gardens on beautiful Sap Bay. Never touched the air conditioning all week. We rented a car, grocery shopped to the tune of $1000 eating most of our meals at the villa. Visited Grace Bay and the shops on the other side of the island. The outdoor seating, the pergola on the beach, and the lounge chairs around the pool were perfect when gathering as a group or peaceful solitude when required. The kids could not get enough of the pool or the beach, spending each day building sand castles and playing with pool toys. Snorkeling from the beach was easy. Great fish, sponges, and one day my sister-in-law found an Octopus in a conch shell for us to interact with before returning it to it's "home". From kayaks to hammocks, to peaceful reflections about the book of the day, Villa Mirabelle is perfection.... Toto toilets as well! No detail was overlooked in the building of this Caribbean sanctuary. Paradise!
I just want to affirm all the wonderful reviews that precede this one. My family and friends (7 adults and 1 infant) all stayed at Villa Mirabelle and had a perfect stay. The pool is refreshing, the ocean and beach are stunning, and the house is perfection. Quality furniture inside and out, quality appliances and like everyone else stated...the best sound system. I don't know what hasn't already been said, but I fear leaving such a good review because I don't want to many other people to know about this villa. We will most certainly stay there again.
Book this house now. You will not regret it. The photos don't do the house justice. It exceeded our expectations. The house itself is amazing. Great floor plan, perfect for a large family getaway. The finishes and thoughtfulness that went into the house are truly impressive. The pool is gorgeous, large and warm! The beach is spectacular. Great for kayaking and paddle boarding or just floating around. The house a short drive to the airport and Grace Bay (where resorts and grocery store is). We ate at Las Brisas 4 times and loved it. You can walk to the restaurant from the house. I could go on and on about the house and Sapodilla Bay. We drove all over the island and I am very glad we stayed here. It really feels remote, but it is close to all. The house is very private, protected from neighboring houses by lots of plants, you barely even know you have neighbors. The cabana at the beach (with music piped in from the house) was perhaps the most relaxing place I have ever been in my life. We have already booked a stay for 2015! Cannot wait to go back.
We were so excited to arrive at Villa Mirabelle as well as a little nervous, never having been to the islands before. As soon as we walked into the beautiful villa I knew that all my research had paid off, that this was the perfect choice for our family. We instantly felt as though we were home! The pictures do not do the kitchen justice, it is a fabulous kitchen. Our intention was eat in every night so the kitchen and outdoor grill were important to us. All of the rooms were beautifully decorated with very comfortable furniture including the beds. As beautiful as the inside of the house was, the outside was breathtaking. The views will not disappoint! I am so impressed with the attention to every detail obviously put into the design of the landscaping. From that exquisite pool and lanai to the wooden walkway down to the beach to the shaded outdoor living room that was built on the beach to the private sitting areas, everything was designed for relaxation and privacy! I highly recommend this house for your vacation, we are already booked to come back next year!
This is a magnificent home - the listing description was absolutely accurate with respect to the location - but the location was even more wonderful than the description. The listing photos were good - perhaps the rooms were a bit smaller than they appeared in the pictures - but beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The property was very clean and very well maintained. The interaction with owner and manager was easy and informative and gracious! We were a family with seven adults and three children under five years of age. We all felt very comfortable, not in the least bit crowded. The beds and linens were terrific, the kitchen well stocked and we very much appreciated having a few things already in the fridge from the previous guests. The dining room table accommodated us all easily. The pool was the big hit - big and beautiful and deliciously without an overdose, if any, chlorine. We would all recommend this property without reservation - it was terrific! Sunsets on the beach an extraordinary benefit - OH! I want to go back!
