Twelve Palms Villa is an oceanfront property ideal for families or friends seeking a peaceful and beautiful retreat by the sea. Perfectly situated on the southern shoreline of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands, this villa offers uninterrupted south-facing views of Sapodilla Bay and the ocean beyond.
IMPORTANT: Twelve Palms Villa can be rented as a two- or three-bedroom villa. If booking for four or fewer guests, to avoid confusion please advise us if you wish to use the third bedroom. See the “Availability” section for further details on the cost for the three-bedroom option.
Inside, the villa features an open-plan design, with a large main-floor sitting area and adjacent dining space, a fully-equipped kitchen with plenty of storage and counter space, and three large king bedrooms, each with a private ensuite bath.
Outside, you’ll find a large infinity edge pool surrounded by several seating areas, with loungers for relaxing or sunbathing, and a gazebo for outdoor dining. The outdoor space features attractive tropical landscaping that provides plenty of privacy from the adjacent properties. Access to the sea is available by stairs from our dock, allowing you to step into shallow, turquoise waters to swim and snorkel, or use one of our two-person kayaks to explore the area.
At Twelve Palms Villa, we’re proud to provide a comfortable stay to every guest, and our private house manager (who deals only with our property) will do everything possible to ensure that you find Twelve Palms to be the perfect retreat for a happy and relaxing vacation.
Accommodates six adults comfortably in an open-plan design, with a soaring 25-foot-high ceiling in the centre section. Most of the furniture is handmade and has been imported from the UK and Europe. Taking advantage of the high ceiling has allowed us the luxury of being able to hang beautiful and large works of art. For entertainment, this room also has a large flatscreen TV with a full HD cable TV package, as well as a mobile Bluetooth speaker for listening to music.
The open kitchen with breakfast bar has plenty of countertop space and storage and is well equipped with everything you’ll need for your stay, regardless of how much (or how little!) cooking you want to do. In addition to a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher and stove, you’ll find smaller appliances such as a toaster, coffee maker, kettle, and blender, and, of course, a full set of utensils, glassware, dishware, and cookware.
Screened indoor area:
This large, open space overlooks the pool and ocean, and is perfect for either indoor dining at the large teak dining table with six chairs, or for relaxing on the sofa and two armchairs covered with Sunbrella fabric.
All three bedrooms are generously sized, and feature handmade furniture imported from the UK, Europe, or India. Each room has a ceiling fan and individually controlled air-conditioning unit. In every bedroom there is a king-sized bed outfitted with fine, fresh white cotton linens, with one bedroom featuring the option of being set up as a twin room with two separate beds, upon request.
Each bedroom has a private ensuite bathroom, two with large glass showers and one with a tub/shower combo. To ensure a comfortable stay, in the bathrooms you’ll find amenities such as plush towels and hair dryers.
You’ll be spending much of your time outside the villa, and there are many options for relaxing or actively enjoying the sun and water! Near the large infinity edge pool there are several comfortable teak sun loungers, or enjoy the shade of the gazebo with dining table and chairs for outdoor meals prepared on our large gas barbeque grill.
Gaze out at the turquoise sea from our two-seater outdoor sofa located on the rocks directly above the ocean, or head down to the dock at the water’s edge, where you’ll find additional sun loungers and easy access to the ocean via stairway right into the soft sand bottom. At low tide there’s a small sandy area to explore, and at high tide the water is a comfortable wading depth.
For those looking for more active pursuits, two double kayaks are available for your use, and two tennis courts are available nearby, dedicated for residents and guests of the immediate area only. The nearest beach is at Taylor Bay, just a short stroll away, where you’ll find shallow, protected water, perfect for relaxing or for children to play.
Security: There is a dusk-to-dawn security guard on duty, patrolling our street (Ocean Point Drive) as well as nearby Sunset Bay Drive. There are also security gates on both sides of the house to help ensure your privacy.
Pre-arrival fridge/larder stocking: If you’d rather not have to visit the supermarket on the day you arrive, we would be happy to arrange for groceries to be stocked at the villa prior to your arrival. This service is available for a flat fee of $60 plus the cost of groceries (add 4% if paid by credit card).
Transportation: Twelve Palms Villa is approximately ten to fifteen minutes’ drive from the airport. Taxis are available, but expensive, so we strongly suggest renting a vehicle for the duration of your stay.
Shopping: There are a number of supermarkets on Providenciales; the nearest is about a ten-minute drive, with others located closer to the main tourist shopping area (and the world-renowned Grace Bay Beach), about 20 minutes away.
