Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Providenciales - Provo - Apego del Mar

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms on 2 levels with bar, infinity-style pool, hot tub

This unique villa is shaped like an octagon and includes 3700 sq ft of living space on 2 levels. Both levels feature decks that overlook the tranquil, turquoise waters of Chalk Sound.

The lower level has a kitchen, living & dining area, together with 2 bedrooms and a full and half bathroom. The living room includes two couches (one is a sofa-bed), a flat screen TV, DVD player, and xbox. One of the bedrooms has a King bed with french doors that open on to the lower deck and provide magnificent views of the water, The 2nd bedroom can either be set up with a king bed or two twin beds. There is also an side entrance to another 2 piece bath and laundry area beside the pool deck.

The upper level has an great room that spans over 40ft across the back of the villa overlooking Chalk Sound. This impressive room includes two separate sitting areas with 4 couches/loveseats, a bar, and pool table. The bar also includes an ice maker (with purified water) and a cappuccino machine. When the sun goes down and the water views are gone, there is also a large 55' 3D LED TV complete with 3D glasses and DVD player that you can enjoy.

Also included on the upper level are 3 bedrooms. One with a queen bed and an en-suite with a shower, one with a king bed and en-suite with a tub & shower, and a smaller bedroom with two twin beds. There is also a separate 2 piece bath close to the entrance.

The outside of the property offers a Weber BBQ, 2 dining areas and 7 separate sitting areas so that you can have sun or shade at any time of the day (or just get away from the rest of your group - discreetly of course...lol). There is an impressive 42ft long infinity-style pool that is great for doing laps, but also great fun for the family since it is just 4 1/2 feet deep. There are several pool noodles, squirt guns and pool toys are available for your use (and a little machine that blows them up for you!). If the average 75 degree (20C) night time temperatures are too cold for you, there is also a 6-person hot tub available.

The property also features a wonderful, private, sandy cove that is great for younger kids. By the water there is also a dock, and two small kayaks that you can use to explore Chalk Sound.

The villa itself is located about just 10 minutes (5 miles or 8km) from the airport, and 2 miles (3km) from the turn off to Chalk Sound Drive. It is also just 1-2 miles from what I think are the two most beautiful beaches in the world: Taylor Bay and Sapodilla Bay. At these beaches, on a busy day you might find two dozen people sharing a beautiful sandy beach that spans 1000 feet. The water is crystal clear, and at Taylor Bay, you can usually walk out at least 200 feet before it even begins to feel deep.

Also, just 2 miles from the villa is one of the best restaurants on the island, Las Brisas, but if you want to head towards Grace Bay which is about a 10-15 minute drive, you can find dozens of 4-5 star restaurants that would rival the best restaurants in any major city of the world. Whether you want French, Italian, Thai, Japanese, it is all available to you, but you can just as easily find burgers, pizzas or some local chicken or conch restaurants if you want.

There is a convenience store and gas station located just 2 miles (3km) from the property, but for major grocery shopping there is a 'Quality Supermarket' about 5 miles away, or the main IGA supermarket about 10 miles away. Everything is imported, so prices are quite high - especially if you are looking for a specific brand of cereal, toothpaste or coffee - so bring what you can.

A few additional items available to make your stay more comfortable: (1) Toyota Camry Hybrid available for just $50/day (including insurance), (2) prepaid cell phone - can include 100 min/day to US/UK/Canada for just $20/week, (3) Discounted Golf Passes available with your booking (save up to 40% off regular rates) & both left/right handed set of clubs available at the villa for your use - details on the course available at www.provogolfclub.com, (4) 2 kayaks available free of charge, (5) 4 bikes also available free of charge

About David McGee

This is a picture of our family with Chalk Sound in the background. We are from Toronto, Canada and our kids are 9, 11, 12.

David McGee purchased this villa in 2013

Why David McGee chose Providenciales - Provo

We immediately fell in love with the beautiful turquoise waters of Chalk Sound and thought this was just the perfect property for us. Built on the rocks sloping down to the water, it is similar in many ways to a cottage back in Canada, but except for one important difference - it doesn't get COLD!!!

What makes this villa unique

This property is truly unique.

First of all, it is built in the shape of an octagon. Not only does that provide better views of Chalk Sound, but that combined with it's concrete construction makes the building virtually hurricane-proof.

Secondly, it has a small private cove/inlet that we thought would be amazing for our friends (and renters) that have small kids.

Finally, we really loved all of the outdoor seating areas. Many of the villas we looked at only had one deck area by the pool with maybe an umbrella you could use to get some shade. This property has SEVEN separate areas that you can sit and either enjoy the sun, the shade, the waves, or the pool depending on your mood. It is truly remarkable from that perspective.

WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 9 of us from my Zoetic Adventure Club just returned from 8 AMAZING nights here! There are absolutely no words good enough to describe this villa. Our club has traveled all over the world and rented many villa's, but this one has to be right up there on top! This home has way, way, way, more than expected! We felt as though it was our own private resort! The outside area was SPECTACULAR! We had a few minor issues that were quickly attended too. David and his staff were always available and helpful. I so wanted to say on this review that this place was horrible and no one should rent it, but only so we could keep it our private little secret!!! But I cant do that at all!!! LOL! (David, I am sure you get that sense of humor?!) Anyway, I am about to get ahold of David and reserve it for our next adventure to TCI (next time 2 weeks for sure) David, thank you for sharing your Beautiful Island home with us!!!

INCREDIBLE!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing Villa. Hard to put into words the beauty and serenity. 9 of us enjoyed every amenity Apego del Mar had to offer. Upon our arrival everyone was in awe. The beach, the pool, the deck watching sunrise, the many rooms and levels to get lost in, shear PARADISE!! An enchanting Island, most beautiful water I've ever seen. Will definitely be back. Thank you David for the pleasure of enjoying your Villa.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in this beautiful villa by the sea. The villa is even more beautiful than the pictures. We particularly enjoyed the many outdoor spaces we could relax in. We loved being able to just walk down the steps and into the water where we were able to swim and kayak. It was perfect for our group that ranged in age from 15 months to 59. There was plenty of room for all if us and the owner was very accommodating providing a crib and high chair that we needed. We would go back in a minute and have already recommended this villa to friends!

What A Spot!! Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 women in Chalk Sound for a 6 night getaway! The house is beautifully decorated... truly the cleanest house I have ever rented (and I have rented a lot!). There are so many things to do at the house, that we decided to spend one day staying there all day rather than go to the beautiful beach. Taylor Bay which is a 2 min drive is spectacular and you may not see another sole while there! The house has a private landing to beautiful water in Chalk Sound, there are kayaks, sea scooters, all kinds of floats, noodles, boogie boards, a hot tub, a pool, several outside areas to enjoy in the sun and in the shade. The house is fully equipped with any small appliance you can imagine and offered so much to make our vacation perfect in every way!

Fantastic Trip for 15 of us

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days celebrating my Dad's 80th birthday, 8 adults and 7 children ranging in age from 4 to 17. We had a wonderful time. The villa was set up well to accommodate all those people with lots of indoor and outdoor nooks and crannies for people to escape to when they needed too, and lots for the kids to do.

The colour of the water and views of Chalk Sound were unbelievable and breath taking. The pool and bottom well used. We did some kayaking and snorkelling off the cove. The teenagers used the bikes to get to and from beautiful Taylor beach, where we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. Pristine waters and hardly anyone there. Kids and adults played, swam, relaxed under the big tree and gathered for spectacular sunsets.

The kitchen was very well equipped and lots of towels were supplied. There was ample to do inside when we had a couple of rainy moments. The pool table overlooking the sound was well used by everyone. I would recommend taking your own snorkelling gear as there is much to see.

We found the grocery store very well equipped but quite expensive. It is worth bringing dry goods and staples if you have room in your suitcase. Lots of great restaurants. Our kids loved going to the Conch Shack and we had a wonderful lunch at Somewhere Cafe.

All in all a great trip and lots of great memories were created.

Chalk Sound Villa -great views

  • 3 of 5

Rented this villa for 24 days in January.A/C was loud downstairs;some rooms were warm even though the owner did put fans in. Screens were torn in several rooms so mosquitos were a concern.Kitchen had all necessary appliances and utensils and the owner did buy a slowcooker upon request. Location is secluded. You need a car to reach the only nearby restaurant ,Las Brisas, which is fantastic, and IGA is 20 minute drive.Grace Bay tourist area is further away.Roads are narrow and cannot really walk or ride a bike safely.View onto Chalk Sound is beautiful. Pool heated by propane; we only enjoyed it warm for 4 days because propane always ran out.Hot tub never worked.Workers tried to fix it but it never happened.Joseph,the maintenance foreman, tried to repair the many things to make our stay more comfortable and we are most grateful for his kindness.The villa has 2 stories connected by a narrow circular stairway which is difficult to use.Anyone with mobility issues would find the many stairs on all the decks a challenge.There is a rocky access to the water below but no sandy beach as advertised.Taylor and Sapodilla Beach are close by car and they are great.Generally we enjoyed the visit to the island, the beautiful people and the great weather.

Owner's Response: Pat– I am sorry that you did not fully enjoy your stay. (1) I acknowledge that the hot tub was not working during your stay and I do sincerely apologize for that. I tried very hard to get it repaired during your stay. My last guests actually mentioned that now it is too hot, so I have now arranged to fly down a specialist to get it working 100%. (2) Pool heat is not included with the rental: December-January are probably the only months when pool heat is needed in Turks and I am working at adding some additional solar heaters this summer so it will be heated this coming winter. To make up for the hot tub issue, I did try and use that heater for the pool without any luck. (3) The AC units were just installed in 2013. The previous owner from England lived at villa for 20 years with no AC because the constant breezes from the water are very refreshing (4) One of the screens was damaged accidentally by guest who checked out the day that you arrived, so it did take a day or two to get that fixed. (5) The location is in a quiet/secluded area and there are no busy resorts nearby. Chalk Sound and nearby Silly Creek are considered one of the most exclusive and highly sought after locations on the island with many multi-million dollar villas. (6) The roads to the villa are all paved, but they don't have the wide shoulders like the roads in Canada/US. I have seen many people jogging, walking and biking along Chalk Sound Drive, but if you want a quieter road to do that, I would suggest using Silly Creek Road which is ½ mile from the villa. (7) There is a circular staircase for access from the top floor to the bottom floor of the villa. I have installed baby gates on the top and bottom of that to make it safe for small children. There is also a regular staircase on the outside of the villa that can be used to go from one level to another. None of the stairs outside should be difficult for people with mobility issues-my last guest just celebrated his 80th birthday at the villa and had no problems. (8) The beach at the villa is exactly as pictured in the photos I have uploaded. It is private & sandy, however there is a rocky coastline around it-and like any body of water-you will find some rocks too! All in all, I am also sorry that I couldn’t agree to give you a further 60% discount for your stay because of the hot tub issues. Maybe the owners of other villas you have rented agreed to such rebates, but I will just let the other reviews speak for themselves
