About Allison L. Smith

We've been in the Turks and Caicos for 12 years now. We were the first developers on North Caicos and one of the largest developers in the country. If you come to North Caicos you will be coming through our marina and yacht club. We've been the largest employer on North Caicos (at one point employing more than 120 locals) and enjoy an impeccable reputation in the community. Once upon a time I was a rockstar but now prefer being a father and family man. Not all rock stars spend their lives on stage; some it seems, turn into real estate developers. 

We first came across the Turks and Caicos 12 years ago when I was planning on buying two acres on the main island of Providenciales for personal use. A quest for greater privacy drove us toward North Caicos where we fell in love with the beautiful garden island. I am now the largest land owner on North Caicos and my partners and I are responsible for creating The North Caicos Yacht Club project, as well as building the first bridge in the country. 

Allison L. Smith purchased this villa in 2004

Why Allison L. Smith chose Sandy Point

This amazing villa will offer you the feeling that you and your guests are on your own private island. The lush landscape and tucked away location provides for privacy and tranquility.

Enjoy the beautiful white sand and turquoise water in the backyard.

Lounge by the resort sized pool and take in the warm, sunny climate, or go for a float on one of the many pool toys.

How about a night on the rooftop patio? Just you and your heart's desire,...sipping a glass of wine under the brilliant stars?

Retire for the evening to the stunning master suite and take in a bubble bath.

Bringing the children with you? They will have non-stop entertainment with the game room. This room will bring out the child in all of you with the "old school" arcade games, Ping-Pong, pool table, air hockey, huge movie selection, and wet bar.

This gorgeous villa is truly a one-of-a-kind property. Whether you are planning a family vacation or an adult only retreat, this villa offers a getaway like no other.

What makes this villa unique

continued...

The game room and wet bar will accommodate large groups or parties. Pool, ping-pong, air hockey, and even the old arcade favorites, Galaga, Ms Pac Man, and Frogger are ready to entertain. We have hundreds of DVD’s and the main TV has cable. (2 of the TV’s are 65”) We have wireless Internet even though it’s better to just forget it’s available sometimes…

The dining area is right next to the kitchen and seats 6. The kitchen has a massive bar area that also seats 6, so 12 can dine in the same general area.

The roof has the most amazing view you can imagine. It also has a bar area, bathroom, outdoor shower, etc. It’s a great place to get that “all over tan” or star gaze at night with someone you love. We have many fond memories of this spot.

The pool is what you would expect at a resort - not a private home. It’s the size of 6 normal residential pools and is sure to bring you many hours of enjoyment as it has for us. We have tons of luxurious outdoor furniture for lounging, soaking up the sun, etc.

The home gym is complete with Precore full body work station, chin-up bar/dip station, full set of dumbbells. With the Precore work station you can get a full body workout. The beach and roof top patio are great locations for yoga enthusiasts.

As we’re big believers in the power of pictures we have a web site.

We hope to have you as a guest and if you have any questions please call us or send an email. Thank you for the opportunity to share our special home with you.

Simply The Best 💜

  • 5 of 5

If privacy is important to you this is the place.

We had the beach to ourselves for the entire week. Memories were created with our children and grandchildren that will forever be cherished .

The villa is spacious and well equipped with linens, cookware, movies, games and so much more. We took advantage of the shopping option offered; it was well worth it. Regine, the property manager, was very efficient and so helpful.

We enjoyed our stay at Simply The Best very much and look forward to our next visit!!

Beautiful property

Very nice for our family of 13. Kids loved the game room, including trying their hand at the drum set.

Well furnished with ample dishes, cookware and towels.

Regine Forbes very responsive if we has questions or problems.

This ocean is truly paradise!

  • 4 of 5

We were a family traveling together to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. Our group consisted of 6 adults + 5 children. The beachfront is SIMPLY THE BEST. We could not get enough of the clear, turquoise, pristine ocean waters just steps away. Often times, the only people for miles -- it felt remote, quiet and perfect for our kids to run around and play. We were also grateful for the use of kayaks, paddle boards & the snorkeling gear (although some weren't functioning).

There is a house RIGHT next door, but they weren't around much.

The kids LOVED the pool! The adults had a hard time swimming in it as it was not maintained - quite dirty and no one came by to clean it during our stay. Murky water and lots of dirt.

While the design of the house is not our style, we imagine in its early days it was beautiful. The high ceilings are great. And, the open space was nice for big meals together, puzzling and watching movies at night. It is well equipped. Lots of toys, games, DVDs, kitchen utensils...the rooftop and deck are great features, but there isn't much furniture out to really enjoy those spaces. Plus, the bugs are BAD, especially at sundown.

The house has definitely seen better days. The bathrooms need to be updated. The king bed my parents slept on was very uncomfortable and the mattress should be replaced. The basement had a funky/musty smell. Overall - it didn't feel super clean or pristine as the photos display, but we were grateful to all be in a house together -- with the amazing beachfront where we spent most of our time.

Overall, we did have a wonderful experience. Regine was great prior to our arrival, answering our (hundreds!) of questions. The grocery service (while expensive) was helpful.

Merrica came to cook for us one night -- she is fantastic. Very professional. Delicious food.

And, we had a fun time with Bernie (Miss B) and Dorothy providing chef service another evening -- she made a cake to celebrate my nephew's 5th birthday. And, her food was yummy as well.

The Island BBQ at My Dee's was a highlight, great music too! Silver Palm -- delicious food, beautiful ambiance. Prettiest of all the restaurants. Mudjin Bar & Grill with a superb view. We rented a car from Al. He dropped it off and picked it up. We loved exploring North & Middle Caicos. Sandy Point was our favorite -- the sand bar and shallow clear waters. And, snorkeling with Capt. D.

The islands are friendly, clean & scenic -- we cannot wait to go back and explore more!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This location was absolutely perfect! The beach is quiet, calm and completely ours. The house has everything you could need. Regine was great and helpful and even she came to check on us during the week to see if we need anything. The house is just very close to the ferry but you wouldn't know it - it is very quiet. We highly recommend this location for all types of gatherings including a quiet week for two. Thank you!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A vacation like no other. North Caicos is truly an untouched gem waiting to be explored. The beach right in front of the house may be the nicest beach I have ever been to (and I have been all over the world). We went as an extended family of 11 and the house was more than spacious. 3 bedrooms upstairs all with their own full bathrooms and 3 downstairs. The kids absolutely loved the trip. The game room downstairs kept the kids entertained for hours as did the pool and, of course, the beach. We had access to paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel gear, fishing gear and more. A perfect beach to go paddle boarding because it is always calm as it is surrounded by a barrier reef. You can walk a couple hundred feet on the beach and then there is this sand bar that is out of this world. Perfect sand dollars everywhere! right at your feet! Conch shells all over the place! Never seen anything like it.

I would also like to mention that Regine was excellent. She always picked up the phone and was ready to help. I would recommend bringing a lot of groceries as the island doesn't have a supermarket like that we are used to. We had Regine take care of that. We just emailed all the items we needed and they were at the house and put away when we arrived. Also have the chef Merrica Handfield cook for you guys as often as possible. Great cook and great attitude.

Allison was also exceptional as she made it a priority to make our trip as comfortable and unique as possible. You are in good hands all around!

"Simply the Best!"

  • 4 of 5

Allison was our first contact - booking was done easily, efficiently and answered our initial questions.

Regine was invaluable in answering ALL questions pertaining to our transportation to North Caicos from Airport. With her information, we were able to make the ferry arrangement (luggage and groceries for 12 people) and arrange taxi to transport 12, luggage and groceries.

Once on the North, we arranged a kayak through the mangroves and a bike excursion on middle caicos, through Big Blue, that took us to beaches and the caves. The caves were loved by all! Mark has invaluable knowledge. We also chartered a boat for the afernoon through Kenard. All these excursions were made easy because we rented a 12 person van from Al Rentals. He made the renting of the vehicle extremely easy. He met us at the ferry where he handed over the keys.

The villa does have everything you need for the week. We hired Merrica and Miss B to prepare some of our meals. Although the food was delicious with both Chefs, Merrica is more affordable and definitely just a good. The difference we found is that Merrica didn't stay until the last dish was clean while Miss B did.

The kids enjoyed the basement toys. However, they too prefer to play in the pool or in the ocean. We made use of the scattegory game.

Regine left a local phone for us to use while on site with her number on speed dialed. She was always efficient and helpful. She checked in during the week once.

The villa is definitely a beachfront paradise. We relaxed and took many walks on the beach not encountering anyone walking for the hour walk a few of the times we walked. It's isolated and feels like you rented the entire beach and ocean just for you. That area has no undertow and the waves really just come up during the high wind moments. It's perfect for kids to play in without worry of danger. The worse that can happen is that you get pushed down shore a few feet. We were able to collect so many sand dollars. There were so many in our area. We all enjoyed the kayaks and paddle board.

We had 2 bond fires. Regine had left some marshmallows and graham wafers for us. We had bought some chocolate so S'Mores were a top priority.

One reason for not a 5/5 is that the bugs made it impossible to stay out long to watch sunset from the roof. They bite. We found that the beach was a better place to watch the sun go down. Long pants and socks needed after sunset. No alfresco dining.

Lovely holiday! Many memories!!

This stunning villa is located on one of the most secluded islands in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The villa is situated on over an acre of beachfront that offers sugar white sand and turquoise water, all with an abundance of lush tropical landscape. You will truly feel as though you are on your own island, away from it all...
