Featured in Conde Nast “Brides” Nov 2011 issue on best places for honeymoons in the Caribbean!

Esencia is for people who want to come back to themselves through being with nature in a serene, natural and pure environment. The Villa sits on a gated estate of 2.25 acres of pristine land with only two Villas within a mile. You often will not see any one on the beach for days, with only an occasional boat going by. There's almost always a cool breeze, you are 100 feet from the waters edge, and you are surrounded by lush green. The beach is pure white sand and is 4 miles long. The water is a gorgeous turquoise color, warm and gentle. You can spend hours comfortably in the water. The sea is shallow and safe for kids. There's a beautiful pool and hot tub nestled amongst the palms.

Villa Esencia: Villa Esencia is a 6000 sq foot villa with two, 2br, 2bath rental units and the owners unit. The layout is designed for privacy; Esencia 1 is on the North side of the villa, and Esencia 2 the South. Both units are first floor, directly on the beach. Units have partial ocean views from inside and full ocean views from the outside covered deck.

The suites are large and well-appointed. Each has two bedrooms, with two king beds. There is also the option of a 2nd bed in one bedroom as a kids bed. In addition, the living room sofa pulls out and can sleep 2, for a total possibility of 7 people.

Location: Esencia sits directly on the beach in Long Bay. Long Bay is a 4 mile pure white sand beach. It is generally undeveloped with long stretches of ocean fronting the wild vegetation. There are occasional large estates with a few 'island style' older homes nestled between. Its a very quiet area with low population density. Yet, it's only 5 minutes away by car from Grace Bay, with its shops, condo's and restaurants.

About Ritama Davidson

Kabir and Ritama - owners of Villa Esencia. Avid kiteboarders. Self-development trainers, authors

Ritama Davidson purchased this villa in 1998

Why Ritama Davidson chose Providenciales - Provo

We were looking for a quiet, natural environment, close to nature and the sea, away from the buzz of city, road and people. This location fit that description perfectly. There was only one house nearby, no sounds except the wind, the trees and the sea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a fabulous get-away for individuals, couples or families. The set-up is ideal - the villa is very private and has it's own patio area and Tiki-Hut. The shared pool and hot-tub is just steps away. The location is a short drive away from the more populated Grace Bay area. The beach is beautiful and most days you will have it entirely to yourself. The owners have thought of everything - all linens, and beach towels, kitchen appliances, an outdoor grill, beach chairs, and a car! There are two (2-person) sea kayaks available to use. The friendly owners are there if you need them. They have helpful restaurant and attraction suggestions.

Tranquility at its Finest!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 7 nights in early March and enjoyed every single moment! The pictures on here certainly helped attract us to this villa, but the reality far exceeded our expectations. From the personal attention that Kabir and Ritama gave us to the exquisite views and pristine beach, this villa offers the best placement on Long Bay Beach. There are very few homes along this stretch of beach (though there will soon to be future developments) and it's clear how much effort Ritama and Kabir have placed into making this compound a retreat for ALL of their guests. Our unit came with the use of a car (saving us from renting a car and spending hundreds of dollars over the week) that enabled us to go to the grocery store and explore the island. Located under the owner's unit, our 2-bedroom space was nicely shaded from the heat yet offered easy access to the beach down a garden path and by our private cabana with rattan furniture. We tried the complimentary paddle boards, but were really only successful on the last day after the winds had calmed the waters, but enjoyed every second we were out. You can go SO far out in the water - over a mile - and still be in (crystal clear warm) water only up to your chest/belly. Though we had never done kiteboarding before, we decided to give an attempt at lessons since we had seen dozens of kites sail by us throughout the week. Wayne at TCKiteboarding was very helpful in setting us up for the lesson and after 3.5 hours of training, we were even able to get out on the boards and out of the water. AMAZING overall experience at Villa Esencia! We are certain to return to Turks & Caicos and, when we do, we'll stay with our new friends Ritama and Kabir.

If anyone is debating whether to stay on Long Beach or Grace Bay, I'll tell you we did too. But after spending a week in the sun with a steady breeze cooling us from overheating, while having the amazing views and absolutely NO crowds of children running around like at the bigger resorts on Grace Bay (where you spend 2-3 times the price per night for accommodations), we knew we made the right choice. Having access to the car made it easy for us to still go an explore/enjoy all that Grace Bay has to offer (snorkeling excursions, restaurants, shopping, etc.) but always return to serenity!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
We were a young couple looking for a peaceful getaway where we could relax, soak up the Caribbean sun, and kite board. In the past we had stayed at resorts but this time we wanted to try something new and stay at a villa. We stumbled upon Villa Esencia and to say it exceeded our expectations is an understatement. The only complaint we have about our stay was that it was too short! We stayed in a 1BR suite overlooking the crystal blue water and it was spectacular - clean, cozy, private, plenty of space. It was nice to have the option to make our own meals rather than eating out 3 times per day. One night we ate our home cooked dinner in the gazebo on the beach with a bottle of wine, light from the full moon, and our toes in the sand. The villa is located on the best kiting beach on the island and only a few minutes from Grace Bay.... you couldn't ask for a better location! Renting a car is highly recommended as we were able to explore the island/restaurants easily. Even better than the location and ammenities were the owners - Ritama and Karim. They welcomed us to their home with open arms and made our stay special. There is no doubt we will be back one day soon!

Our very own Oasis

  • 5 out of 5
My husband our two sons (ages 15 and 11) and I had an amazing vacation here at Villa Esencia! Based on the photos, I knew to expect a beautiful Villa on the beach. What I did not expect was our Villa's landscape to be filled with beautiful flowers, plants, even a lovely scented citrus tree. We absolutely loved our out door living space. We enjoyed having our breakfast each morning at our private Tiki Hut and dinner on our outdoor terrace. We had so much fun kayaking, snorkeling, and stand up paddle boarding to walking and star gazing on the beach. We also had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people who were also guests here at Villa Esencia.
We are sincerely grateful to Kabir and Ritama for giving us the opportunity to share their beautiful piece of paradise and what we like to call our very own Oasis! We consider you both friends forever and we will surely come back to visit!

A Quiet Oasis in the Caribbean

  • 5 out of 5
I would first like to extend our thanks to Ritama and Kabir for creating their little oasis on the beach. We were a family of four who came to relax and kite, although the winds died the week we were there, our kids were still able to hit the water at a moments notice when the winds picked up. The beach was amazing; no crowds, friendly for all ages and literally on the door step. In fact we only found we needed to go to town for groceries or the odd meal. Everything we needed in the unit was provided and the unit was very clean and comfortable with plenty of indoor and outdoor space to relax.
The snorkelling on Long Bay is not its strength its beauty is in the friendly hosts, the access out the front door to the waters edge, the miles of white sand and the absence of the throngs of people.

Perfect for families and honeymooners

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I just spent our honeymoon at Villa Esencia for one week. We were there with 3 other families (two with small kids) and this place catered to both couples and families without being too much for either. I kept noticing how the set up was perfect for the other guests and their kids (toddlers and teenagers) and how my husband and I loved how secluded it felt (compared to a resort on Grace Bay). We tend to stray away from the crowds so Long Bay Beach was perfect for us where there was never more than 10 people on the beach. We rented a car and experienced the whole island with ease. I highly recommend this place. I wanted to keep this place a secret but really appreciate the owners attention and service during the entire stay so I had to let others know how great a place this is. I hope to visit again soon.
