*Although we consider all rental requests our largest package discounts are 7 night weekend-to-weekend rentals (so we don't have empty nights). We have many rate packages too numerous for VRBO site. Send request for more information. Our calendar is up-to-date.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your interest in our Top Floor Luxury Suite. We would very much like to earn your business.

You are probably considering a vacation to Providenciales (aka Provo) because of the many wonderful things you have heard or read. Janet and I have traveled the Caribbean extensively and we can confirm it truly is a special place.

Our spectacular balcony view of the Caribbean Ocean's clean clear azure waters is unmatched.

We are located in the lush garden setting of the Coral Gardens Resort on Grace Bay and is in the middle of the Princess Alexandra Marine National Park Nature Reserve. This small intimate boutique resort has gentle waterfalls, inviting pools and a relaxing unpretentious atmosphere. Best of all you are just steps away from snorkeling on the White House Reef.

We are VRBO renters too. Through our experiences we have learned there is a wide variety in condo rental options. Providing a stress-free rental process and a relaxing tranquil environment is important. I think you will find in our material we have made efforts to uphold a high standard. Providing a very comfortable bed and blackout blinds for restful sleep are just a few examples.

To help you make a good decision we have posted lots of pictures along with many details. Our feature picture was taken from the balcony using my Iphone. Yes, you are so close you can throw a baseball in the ocean! We also list our amenities, explain many features and we have totaled ALL costs in our quote. We believe we have created a unique experience and a tremendous value.

Here are some of the highlights:

* ALL COSTS ARE INCLUDED! This includes the 22% government tax and hotel fees and all our amenities (and we have more than most). FYI - most VRBO rentals apply the above costs at check-out.

* Our 1,000-sqft suite is one of the closest to the water on island. Our suite is just steps away from the famous White House Reef. Great snorkeling!

* Snorkel Gear for 4 People (in suite) are for your use.

* In suite washer/dryer (new 7/14)

* Pillow Top King Bed in Bedroom

* Black-Out Blinds in the bedroom so you can sleep in or enjoy an afternoon nap.

* New Sofa Bed (with the thickest sleeping pad)

* Maid Service and Fresh Beach Towels Daily

* 3D Smart TV with NetFlix (2,000+ movies), Pandora, etc (sometimes you need a break from the sun).

* High Speed Wireless Internet in unit.

* It’s been professionally decorated and recently painted. It's fresh, clean in a relaxing atmosphere!

* Use of ALL Property Amenities (Loungers, Parking, Laundry Room, FREE Parking, etc)

* An Island Cell Phone (take it to the beach, pool or anywhere on island)

* Two air conditioners. One central and one in the bedroom so you can sleep soundly.

And there is more. Send a request and I'll forward a comprehensive letter about things to do on the island, some of our favorite restaurants, more information about our rental with the rate quote.

We hope you will compare our condo's updated / upgraded interior, our all inclusive rate, closeness to water (fully enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean), our 'no extra charge' amenities you will find your next vacation spot.

Your experience is important to us so our guests check in and out with the resort management company. Please be assured someone will be available for your every need. You won't be “on your own” like other VRBO rentals. And you won't be cleaning, washing sheets and towels either.

Rent from us and you will return home relaxed and with memories to treasure.

Hope to hear from you.

-Ed (owner)

Guestbook comments from the manager
We did have a wonderful trip and we were very pleased with our choice to stay in your home at Coral Gardens. Your condo was very well equipped with everything we needed and the staff of Coral Gardens were very helpful. We fell in love with Grace Bay and the reef right outside our door! Jim is not a very good swimmer, so it was especially wonderful for him to see so many fish so close to shore! We ate all our breakfasts and lunches on the terrace but went to some very nice dinners via taxi

We visited the island for the first time in 1995 and immediately fell in love.

Ed purchased this condo in 2001

Providencials is a special island and Coral Gardens is one of it's best spots. Walk on the pure white sand that is next to the bluest water you'll ever see. And the famous 'White House Snorkeling Reef' is right out your front door.

Our condo is professionally decorated with unique features. Doors fold in the wall to bring you the ocean's sights and sounds. Black-out blinds (sleep in), Snorkel gear for 4 (included), Washer/Dryer in unit. For more information send a request and I'll forward additional details about the condo and island.

AMAZING! THIS ONE PUSHES ALL THE BUTTONS.

  • 5 out of 5
We've been visiting a different island every February for the last seven years and we have found a new favorite. We've rented many condos and this one rates an A+. Everything the owner Ed said about his place is accurate. The condo is very well decorated with all the expected amenities including TVs, WIFI, full kitchen, comfortable king bed, etc. The view from the balcony is stunning and we used it every morning and evening. The location was exceptional with beach, snorkeling reef, restaurant and bar conveniently located at the resort. We usually don't get to know the staff on a first name basis but they were so helpful and friendly that you couldn't help but get to know them. Carolyn, Flo and Matthew in the office were always attentive and offered good advice on shopping and restaurants and helped arrange taxis. Gerome on the beach always looked after us making sure our beach chairs were at the ready. We were there at high season and the beach was busy but Gerome always was able to find chairs for us. The snorkeling was very good for an inshore reef and I took advantage of it daily as well as long beach walks in either direction. The Somewhere Bar and Grill onsite had excellent drinks and surprisingly good food so we ended up eating there 3 nights. We also walked up the beach to the local park on Thursday night for the open air fish fry that was also very good. After visiting 7 islands (St. John, St. Martin, Aruba, Grand Caiman, Bermuda, St. Croix, Barbados) this may be the first to get a return visit.

EXCELLENT SUITE!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I just returned from staying in this unit at Coral Gardens and it was great! We've been coming to the island for 6 years and have stayed in several units in Coral Gardens but this was by far our favorite. The furnishings and decor are excellent quality and the unit is equipped with everything plus some great extras.
The view is stunning from the third floor-we were able to watch a 4-5' nurse shark swim by while we were on the balcony having lunch!! Snorkeling by the reef was spectacular.
Being return visitors, we know most of the staff and everyone goes out of their way to make our stay memorable every year. We have stayed elsewhere on the island, but this location is ideal and reasonably priced. The restaurant Somewhere has great food and amazing staff.
We'll be back again soon!

GREAT ISLAND VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
Our 5 days at Coral Gardens just wasn't enough time!! The flight through Charlotte wasn't bad ( under 3 hrs) and the 15 minute ride from the airport was easy enough. Our room wasn't ready since we got there early, but the office let us put our things there so we could have some lunch and head down to the beach. When we came back later, everything was already in our condo. The place was great, very clean with a beautiful view. Everyone really went out of their way to ensure a great vacation. Flo was an amazing employee, not sure what her job was because she was everywhere. I have been to many islands and found this one to have the most appreciative people here. So safe!! Don't hesitate to rent this condo, it is located so close to the beach and is priced very reasonably for this expensive island.

CORAL GARDENS, GRACE BAY

  • 5 out of 5
Spent a week at the Coral Gardens celebrating our 25th anniversary. My wife and I loved the place. The room had a great view, was nicely appointed and had all that we needed. We had coffee every morning on that balcony with the great view. Every day we spent time on the beach, snorkeling, sunning, and watching. Jerome would set up our beach chairs and open the umbrella and have it waiting for us each morning. The Bight reef has plenty to see and a nice variety of fish to look at. Can't say enough about how friendly the people are. Somewhere lounge has very good food and drink. Thanks Ed for sharing your condo. Look forward to coming back.

RETURNING GUEST..... GREAT AGAIN!

  • 5 out of 5
This is our second week long visit to TCI, Aug 2012 and aug 2013, and we have stayed in this same Coral Gardens unit both times and I will again! I don't know how an island getaway could be more complete!

The condo is positioned ocean front! The trade winds are wonderful and the panel of sliding glass doors open fully onto the balcony providing a great view. We could see our kids swim in the lap pool below from the balcony, very convenient. A few footsteps behind the pool and we were on the beach and waters edge is only a few more feet. The dark water visible in the photos from the balcony is a living, thriving coral reef. I swam with 4 turtles one afternoon, sting rays, puffer fish, barracuda, parrot fish, on and on. It is amazing to walk out of your back door into the water and snorkel. This trip, I was able to do the pool training PADI scuba course and then also participate in a 45 minute scuba dive right behind Coral Gardens. This course was conducted by Matthew Williams, a master scuba diver and trainer as well as Marthew is in the Coral Gardens office.

Each morning Matthew and Robin in the office would wait for our 6 and 8 year old girls to feed the cats. The staff is so friendly and inviting, very refreshing! They were helpful with suggestions for things to do each day as well as to call and schedule reservations for us.

Caicos Adventures is on property right adjacent to the lap pool and we used them for boat excursions to snorkel and dive for shells and sand dollars, conch dives used to make conch salad on the beach, snorkeling over a ship wreck! Awesome fun! Parasailing, they pick you up in the boat right on the beach!

Food... Wow! Somewhere Cafe is on property. I ate conch salad everyday! The best! Fish tacos with fresh grouper or snapper! They serve breakfast lunch and dinner. If you want to venture off of Coral Gardens property, several restaurants are walking distance down grace bay or there are a number of excellent restaurants on the island.

We rented a car both trips and I would do it again. It's fun driving from the right side of the car and on the left side of the street plus it gave us the opportunity to move all around the island as well as to go out at night to restaurants.

TCI is the place for us! Easy to move around the entire island. The locals are friendly! The condo is beach front, clean, modern, great view, and I know the owner strives to continue to improve the property! Can't get better than this for us! Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great comments. I am sorry the new sofa bed didn't arrive before your trip. We tried hard. It came in two days after you left. So it's there for your next visit. I was told you used our snorkel gear a lot. It's good to hear. That's why we got them. Sounds like you had more fun than the first time. Thanks again, Ed

NOT QUITE

  • 2 out of 5
To qualify this review this was our third time in Provo, we absolutely adore the island. It is quite simply the best beach in the Caribbean bar none.

On with the review. Rather than get all prosey and anecdotal I'll cut out the verbal drivel and bullet point it neatly so you can draw your own conclusions (perhaps the gentle tinge of a suggestion of another rainstorm up here is clouding my judgement):

1. This is NOT a penthouse suite (you can ask the property staff for details). There are NO penthouse suites in this section of the resort (phase 2 part). It IS an ocean facing suite, that is all. No big deal but be mindful of real estate lingo and don't expect indoor fountains and harp music to adorn your front door.

2. Our reservations were, let's say not executed well. The owner (Ed) confirmed availability by phone and email. By the time we had secured our flights we got a call from the assistant manager at the resort informing us that the unit was not in fact available for the first night so we'd be staying in a lesser room and moving the day after. The asst. manager (Matthew) was incredibly helpful and went out of his way to make our stay better. He is not to blame for this mess, the blame lies with the property owner. Again, not the end of the world situation but be mindful that this is not the first time this has happened from what I overheard.

3. I was not expecting any compensation, free cocktails or gold trinkets from Ed (the property owner) due to the above mess but I would've appreciated a small one line email along the lines of "I'm sorry about the inconvenience". That email evidently maybe stuck in limbo between some Nigerian investment opportunity and a Viagra ad in my spam box as I've yet to find it.

4. The pics from the suite of the ocean are accurate but a slightly wider lens would afford you the opportunity of viewing an abandoned construction project that sits to the west of that unit. So if you do visit don't look left. It's not an active construction so no noise just an eye sore.

5. Coral Gardens is situated right in front of the popular reef. This means it is one of the busiest parts of Grace bay beach as it attracts visitors from all over. Both a blessing and a nuisance all rolled into one.

6. The room decor/cleanliness is in serious need of an update. It is not aging gracefully.

On the positive side the unit is reasonably priced off-season given the location.

So there you have it. Overall, fair and far from outstanding.

Owner's Response: Dear Nikolay,

I would like to apologize for the tardiness. I have been fulfilling a 5 week, in the mountains, Boy Scout commitment that has delayed my response. I returned yesterday afternoon (7/24).

I am going to post this on our site as I think future guest should know of your experience. And they should know the other side of the story too (mine and Coral Gardens).

I think it's important to note that Matthew, the manager, and I are needless to say confused by your e-mail. During your stay and at check-out you appeared to be happy so we were shocked by your review.

Yes, the one day overlap was my fault. Your reservation request came in just 8 days before your trip date and I knew you needed a prompt reply. At the time I was not at my computer so, from memory, I sent you an immediate reply.You were made aware of this one day overlap as soon as we realized it (the next morning) and this was 2 days before you committed. So this was known upfront and agreed to before money was exchanged. I apologize again.

I guess we can debate the words penthouse suite. I have stayed in 400 sqft rooms that were label "suite". I believe our 1,000 sqft condo, top floor, fully equipped, with the terrific view is a penthouse suite. Also, many similar units on island are labeled penthouse suite.

Most of the pictures of the condo, including the balcony picture, were taken from my iPhone. No special camera or lense.

I also sent you a 4 page letter that listed all condo contents, all amenities and things to do on the island. This too was sent 2 days before you committed.

I also paid the difference in your first night. Yes the owner of that 500 sqft efficiency rents it for more than our place. Matthew even gave you access to a balcony unit so you could enjoy a similar view until the next day when you moved to our place.

So again we are bewildered as to why the issues known before you committed are bones of contention now.

Janet and I believe vacations are important and we always want our guest to have an enjoyable relaxing one. I am truly sorry you did not have a good experience renting from us.

Best wishes,

-Ed
