Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 8 nights at the beautiful Emerald Estates rental home on North Caicos. We had a wonderful time on the island staying at this property. Alpheus Gardner was a fantastic host and we highly recommend staying at this property. We have stayed in rental homes all over the Caribbean and many times on North Caicos and this was one of the best! Alpheus welcomed us upon our arrival on the island meeting us at the ferry and spent lots of time getting us situated at the house. The house was absolutely spotless when we arrived (which is very important to us as we most often find rentals not as clean as they should be). Alpheus checked in with us every few days to make sure we had everything we need and was very conscientious about making sure our stay was comfortable. The house is an enormous and beautifully furniture home with all of the amenities you could imagine. The kitchen is fully equipped and served all our needs to make delicious meals (most rentals skimp on the kitchen but this was the best we have ever rented!) There are granite countertops and a dishwasher, which saved tons of time on cleanup of meals.

There was four of us staying at the house and we all were beyond pleased with our stay. The master bedroom is huge and looks out onto the water so you can lie in bed and see the blue landscape. The other two bedrooms have wonderful views of the water as well although the windows are a little higher so you don’t see the view from the bed. The house comes with Wi-Fi, a cell phone and several TVs with cable. We are big critics of rental homes and honestly we could not think of anything that was lacking at Emerald Estates. Even the location was great – we have stayed on Whitby beach several times and although the beach is great for walking, the location of this home gave us great access to Bottle creek where we paddle boarded and kayaked. It also is on a windy point and provided lots of wind, which is key to avoiding sand flea bites (and let me tell you we have had hundreds on each of us by staying on Whitby beach).

So if you are thinking of renting from Alpheus Gardner, go for it – you won’t be disappointed – it was truly a home away from home and was well worth the cost. We are always a little worried about paying for a rental up front but it worked out great and Alpheus and his property were all that they promised. Alpheus has thought of all the details in his rental home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Emerald Estates!

Quiet and peaceful paradise spot

Our family enjoyed this special place! The house was fabulous and clean, and the location perfectly private. Alpheus was the greatest host, going out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable and memorable. We only wish we could have extended our stay!

Terrific spot for a quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house served us well as a base for a quiet tropical vacation for two weeks away from the northern cold. The house is beautiful, well appointed, and spacious. It sits as the end of a dirt road and though there is a house within eyeball distance, it is far enough away that we never heard or saw other people. We enjoyed the second floor porch for evening cocktails while the sun sets. The breeze blows constantly so you are never hot and sweaty and the bugs can't get you. My kids and I enjoyed snorkeling right off shore from the house. Lastly, Alphaeus was a gracious owner and host. He helped arranged for our car rental, snorkeling trip, and readily answered any questions we had. He was respectful of our space but there when we needed him. I highly recommend this property for a peaceful vacation!

Secluded and Beautiful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk through the doors you feel like you are in paradise. The villa is beautifully decorated and the view is breathtaking. The villa is fully equipped so you can prepare all your meals at home. It even has a gas grill. The home has central A/C and a separate unit in the Master on the first floor which is very quite. Alepheus the owner goes out of his way to make you feel at home. He meets you at the ferry and escort you to Emerald estates. He is there to assist you with anything you need. I do recommend you buy all your groceries in Provo. Also a jeep is the best way to get around the island and explore all the beautiful beaches. It is quiet and secluded we never so anyone else near our villa the entire week.It is also centrally located to Whitby, the ferry, stores, restaurants and beaches and not far from Middle Caicos. Alepheus was a very attentive and gracious host a pleasure to work with. He hooked us up with his brother Nat that provided us with fresh fish during our stay. We also hired Nat to take us out to find shells, go snorkeling and fishing. What an awesome experience. So if you are looking for a perfect place to stay that is quiet, comfortable with a breath taking view to wake up to every morning look no further than Emerald Estate. It is the best place on North Caicos.

Secluded and Beautiful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk through the door of Emerald Villa you feel like you are in paradise. The home is professional decorated with very comfortable and beautiful furnishing. The house has central A/C and a separate unit in the Master which is very quiet. When we were there we had a beautiful breeze at night. The view from the patio is breath taking we just could not get enough of it. The villa sits back off this dirt road. It is secluded and quiet. We never saw another person on the beaches or water by the villa. The villa is in a great location near beaches, Whitby, the ferry, grocery stores and not that far from Middle Caicos. If you want to feel like you are on your own private island this is the place to stay. Alepheus the owner met us at the ferry and helped us get our jeep ( so glad we had it) and then lead us to his villa. He was the most gracious and attentive owner I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He checked on us to see if we needed anything from time to time. He arranged for us to meet Nat is older brother to get fresh fish. He also gave us the use of a cell phone for local calls. Which ended up being a life saver for us because our children got stuck on Provo because of a tropical storm. If we had not had that phone we could of never kept in touch with our kids to make sure they were alright. The high light of our stay was an outing with Nat as I mention Alepheus older brother. He took us out to find shells and did some snorkeling and fishing. What an awesome experience and Nat even picked us up right by the house. I was hesitant at first to rent Emerald Villa because of only one review but I am so glad we did. This villa is probably the most beautiful villa we have ever rented on all our island trips. I highly recommend that you get all your groceries in Provo. We prepared all our meals at the villa and only ate out once at Aquatic, which was good.The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals as well as a gas grill. I also would recommend a jeep if you are planning to do any exploring. The roads are rough off the main road and with a jeep we were able to explore all of the island back roads and beaches without worry. I did check out other properties that I was considering during our stay and I am so glad we chose Emerald Villa. Its location and view can't be beat. Thank you Alepheus for sharing your beautiful home with us. It is truly paradise.

A new secluded, grand villa in Whitby

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa, location, ocean view and hospitality! If you are looking for a place in Whitby that’s private and secluded, but yet isn’t too far from the main artery of North Caicos, this is your house. The homeowner, Alpheus, made our venture to North Caicos into an easy journey when it had potential to be quite harried. He offered to set up transportation from the airport to the ferry dock, had our car rental waiting for us when we exited the ferry at North Caicos and was waiting with his truck to assist in hauling luggage to our villa and show us the way. Upon arrival at our villa, a nice welcome letter was awaiting us along with several bottles of wine!. The newly built villa was even nicer than depicted in the photos (numerous windows and openness). Alpheus was always available via the local cell phone he provided or through email via the Wi-Fi hot spot he created. We were the first to stay at this villa, and were hesitant as there were not yet published reviews, on which we normally base our decisions. What a great “chance” we took when we decided on Emerald Estates. It is located approx. 100 feet from the Oceanside, large rocks directly in front of the house. However, you can walk 100 yards to the west and find a serene sandy beach(only 2 other villas share the beach). We snorkeled in front of the house and saw a good variety of fish, lobster, barracuda and some coral. There were better locations for snorkeling (3 Mary’s) but the ability to step off the steps and putter around right in front of the villa was very convenient. The area on North Caicos is remote in that there is only 1 liquor store (it does take credit cards w/4% fee) and various small convenience stores. Our recommendation is to purchase the majority of perishables in Provo before coming over on the ferry (bread, dairy, fruits, and veggies) and supplement with what you can find locally. We enjoyed the locally fresh caught snapper, lobster and also caught and cleaned our own conch in front of the home. Additionally, we advise a car rental as Middle Caicos provided some of the most breath-taking beaches we’ve ever seen along with Daniels Café (must eat the cracked conch). The entire trip was a great adventure and along with the assistance of Alpheus and his great connections with other locals, made it worry and hassle free. Based on 15 years of VRBO rentals, we highly recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: Dear Heidi, This is just a brief not e to say thank you ever so much for your comments. Please know that a warm welcome awaits you should you decide to visit the Turks and Caicos Islands in the future. Regards Alpheus

Location

Nearest Ferry
10 Miles
Car: recommended

North and Middle Caicos are the two largest islands in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Traditionally, these two have been the heart of the farming and planting in the country. Old cotton, sisal and sugarcane plantation ruins can still be seen today. A causeway connects both islands, so they function as one large island.

Most of the main roads on North and Middle Caicos are paved. Due to the remote locations of many of the attractions on these islands, it is advisable to bring plenty of drinking water with you. Because North and Middle Caicos get more rain than the other islands, mosquitoes are sometimes a problem. Mosquitoes in the Turks and Caicos are not known to carry any disease, but they can be a big nuisance, so be sure to bring Off or a similar bug repellent with you when you visit.
