The house is nice and comfortable (though not ultra-luxe - it doesn't pretend to be), but the pictures here don't do justice to the location. We were less than 30 steps to the beach, and Taylor Bay is absolutely stunning! Many times we were the only ones on the beach, and its the most perfect beach for little children that I'd ever seen. Overall, we had an amazingly relaxed vacation, and were completely comfortable in this gem of a house. Will definitely return to this house in the future!
We really enjoyed our stay at Place de la Sol! It is located on the beach at Taylor Bay on the South side of Provo, so nice and quiet there. The house is comfortable and spacious, with a very nice screened in living area just off the kitchen. It's older and shows some age, but is well kept and very clean. We enjoyed using the kayaks every day in the beautiful bay, and the nice big kitchen and grill were used quite a bit too. We also loved the funky bright colors that the house was painted. It added lots of charm. The house is handicap equipped, so ramps on the front and back steps if needed that also helped with our wheeled luggage. Lots of beach towels were also available, and the linens were in great shape and plentiful too. This is a very well priced villa in a great location.
This place is great for a family or small group. Loads of space, very airy - we didn't have to use the air con, and lots of cool areas to relax/ eat/ drink. If you are looking for somewhere which is walking distance to bars and restaurants this is not for you, but if you want a fabulous getaway, right on the amazing Taylor Bay this is perfect. The property is completely private, with just a few steps down onto the beach - we were able to watch the sun rise in our PJs and were the only ones on the beach! The water at Taylor bay is so shallow, it's perfect for kids and the Kayaks were great for exploring the headland up close.
I can't say enough about this house! It is the most spectacular location... the beach is breathtaking with white soft sand and clear turquoise water. We went to a few different beaches in Turks during our stay and the one right in front of the house was hands down the best! If you have kids, this beach (Chalk Sound) is the best because its low tide and the kids can go out quite far. Each day we would meet people on the beach who would be so jealous that we were actually staying right on that property! The lay-out of the house is nice because its spread out enough for everyone to have their own privacy but also intimate for a great group to gather. There are some nice features included- we took advantage of the kayaks and definitely used the grill for dinner, and enjoyed drinking wine by the pool or beach to watch the sunset. I would absolutely recommend this house for families, friends, honeymoon, or anything! I can't wait to go back!
From the moment we first set foot on the grounds of Place de la Sol we were in heaven. When you walk up the front steps what you find in front of you is one of the most beautiful views you'll ever see - vibrant colors, luscious landscape, a secluded pool and topped off with the turquoise ocean spilling out into the horizon. When my husband and I arrived and took all of this in the only thing we could think was, "is this really ours?"! My husband and I stayed at the villa for our honeymoon, now about a month ago. Prior to our stay here we had been on numerous vacations, including our engagement on Kauai, Hawaii, which was absolutely beautiful, but our stay at Place de la Sol surpassed anything we could have ever hoped for. The house itself is in wonderful condition and is clearly well taken care of. It has a fully stocked kitchen which we used every day- and a wonderful outdoor grill which made my husband so very happy! The house was immaculately clean and the cleaning lady even came twice during our stay to tidy up- what a nice surprise! Every detail of the house from the comfortable bedrooms, amazing master-suite with outdoor shower, and large entertaining dining table on the porch gives the house a comfortable yet luxurious feel. It was perfect for us! The open-air feel of the entire house makes you feel as though you're in a private, tropical paradise. And the outdoor grounds only add to thisÂ¦ Having our own private pool and beach at our back door made it hard to leave and venture off to other more crowded, "touristy" parts of the island! The kayaks provided were the perfect activity after a long day of relaxing and we enjoyed exploring the cliffs and homes along the shore from the water! Taylor Bay is the most beautiful beach on the whole island (and believe us, we explored many beaches during our stay!) The crystal clear water and shallow sandbar that stretches for a mile gives it the most beautiful setting, and coupled with its privacy and secluded feel cannot be topped! The sunsets we saw from our own beach were some of the most beautiful we have ever experienced. Our stay at Place de la Sol was truly magical and we cannot imagine a place we would rather have spent our honeymoon. We are experienced travelers and had high expectations coming in to our trip and not only were our expectations met for a romantic, luxurious yet comfortable house but they were exceeded. We would recommend this lovely house to absolutely any traveler. You will truly have your little piece of paradise all to yourself and will leave with amazing memories never to be forgotten. We cannot wait to get back to this absolutely beautiful spot!
