Why Will Shoreman chose Providenciales - Provo

After visiting other Caribbean Islands, I fell in love with the Turks and Caicos Islands for the amazing natural beauty of the white sands and calm, clear, turquoise waters. These truly are the most beautiful beaches in the world and seeing is believing. Talk to the locals and ex-pats and you will find that TCI has a bit of the Wild West in its’ soul. Crazy stories from the 70’s and 80’s with people waiting for a shipment of food to arrive, constant power outages and locals driving to the airport runway to put on headlights so the planes could land……these stories shape the island, add character and make memories.

Aside from the great restaurants with local specialties/excellent wine lists and some with the best chefs in the Caribbean, there’s also my favorite past time, golf. I can play golf year-round on a spectacular Caribbean course! Most importantly though, there is something about the breeze and the light in the morning across Provo, or the sunset that lights up the sky in color, that makes greeting the day easier. Enough said, now, back to my hammock for with a glass of wine.

Paradise in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a restful and relaxing escape. Will has it down pat and the condo has everything you could need should you want to cook for yourself (bbq too).

The garden is a great escape and there is a lanai, a dock, a fire pit (with a provided fire log!), a hammock, table and chairs near the condo, a picnic table near the fresh water shower...you need a quiet place to relax? This place has it somewhere! It's not on the main drag so a car is likely needed, but you are maybe 15 minutes maximum for wherever you might want to go. The lanai looks over the canal where you can watch many fish patrolling or even enjoy just the mesmeric beat of the jellies that hang out on the sandy bottom. I would also say that you should love dogs. Max, Rangi and Boo were constant companions while the three of us spent time at the condo as well as they will all join you for a swim should you decide to paddle the canals with the provided kayaks.

Will is attentive, but not in your space and is readily available and quick to respond to email should you have any questions or needs. There is also tons of snorkel gear, towels, sun screen, games, books and beach umbrellas should you need them for your daily adventures. If you're looking for cheap(er) beer, the IGA on Leeward has Turk's Head 24s for about $2 a bottle which is the local beer and usually the cheapest you will find. There is lots of great food a short drive from the condo and I found that Grace Bay Car Rentals was your best deal for the island if you're staying longer term. I should also mention that Will has a safe so easy enough to lock away any valuables when you leave the condo as well as laundry to give you the ability to pack light.

I would definitely stay with Will again in a heartbeat. The setup at Waterside truly allows you to enjoy some rest and relaxation with some peace and quiet. Thank you again Will & Max! (and of course Rangi and Boo!)

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an amazing 3 weeks in February. This was our longest stay as we have been coming to Providenciales for 20 years.

Off the beaten path makes this a relaxing retreat that has you trying to figure out how you could change your life and live here permanently.

We had never stayed canal side before and we're surprised at how much we liked it. Having our own aquarium in the backyard was amazing. So many beautiful fish. Every morning I'd feed them some peas and I really do think they grew a bit.

Kayaking the channels or even out to the ocean was great exercise and a great way to start the day.

You will need a car and will want one as there are the most beautiful beaches on this island not to mention outstanding restaurants. If you like to cook, no worries, as Will has supplied the kitchen well.

There are coolers, beach towels there to make your stay more enjoyable without adding extra weight to your luggage. A washer and dryer make packing light even more successful.

Groceries are not outrageously priced as some islands are. Beer is a bit pricey but wine and liquor not so bad.

You will barely see or hear Will (your owner/host) who lives upstairs, but if you need anything...he is right there. He was so very quick to answer emails.

I highly recommend this quiet island getaway. A

Turks Vacation at Waterside

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Waterside. The place has everything you would need on vacation. Tha kayaks, the water canal for swimming, a gazebo and peace and breeze afternoons. I wish to come back and relax. My boyfriend fished and I relaxed plus we went to different beaches in the afternoons. I will miss Rangi, the dog who took us in like if we were his family and swam and rode the kayaks with us, such a qinderful personality. We ate at the Tiki Hut every night because the food was so good and it was close to the house that we had to go back. The owner was so gracious and helpful with the maps and info about how to get to the house. Always accesible. Thanks for having us the the house!

Vacation Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Waterside and hope to come back!

Will is the perfect host and easy to work with from first inquiry. He was always prompt to reply to any questions we had before arrival. When we arrived and opened the door we were pleased to see the beautiful well appointed apartment even nicer than the photos. Centrally located close to everything if you have a car (recommended). We swam in the canal and made use of the many extras - bikes, kayaks, hammock, fire pit, beach towels, cooler, etc..

Will has thought of everything! We (2 couples) absolutely loved Provo and were stunned by the many beautiful beaches and easy beach accesses. Max and Ranji are very friendly dogs and like many before us, adopted us eagerly! Thank you Will & Tina for a truly heavenly place to stay in paradise!

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved Waterside. As many others have said before - so much nicer in person. Everything you needed was available. We felt as if we had the house to our selves. My husband really enjoyed starting the day of swimming in the canal. You are pretty close to the beautiful beaches- parking is not a problem. Missing the 2 dogs - Max which is Will's dog and Rangi (neighbors dog). They were incredibly sweet. Rangi actually went on a 5 mile run with my husband. Hope to visit this piece of paradise again soon.

ideal for chilling (while being pleasantly warm!)

  • 5 of 5

I've been to over 40 countries, which represents a lot of trips for business & pleasure. What I needed on this trip - a personal vacation - was simply to relax in safety and privacy. We got so much more than that: the apartment is much more spacious and airy than it appears in photos. Sparkling clean. Comfy and homey. Never needed AC as there was always a lovely breeze. Barely saw our host (though enjoyed it when we did!) so it feels that you have a house and large property all to yourself. Excellent swimming and kayaking in turquoise waters. You do need a car, but everything is close on this island, so a great home base. Dock, lounge chairs fabulous place to hang and read. The best thing? The three cutest and most companionable mutts ever: Max, Rangi, and Boo. We felt protected always (though we didn't need the protection :) Rangi's a big sweet overgrown puppy who will swim with you and jump in your kayak for a ride. They are so nutty and so sweet - I actually cried when we left! The ONLY negative was ticks everywhere (outside). Nobody's fault: nothing's perfect. But this came really REALLY close to a perfect week... Thank you again for sharing it, Will.

Owner's Response: Hi J, It was great to meet you both and I hope you got some down time away from the cold. I sorry about the t’s in the garden. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks trying to get control of this issue as it seems to be seasonal. Thankfully it now seems too have been resolved. Unfortunately Boo and Rangi belong to someone else so I do what I can to control the issue. Thanks for putting up with them and me. Best wishes. Will

Notes:
The canals are great to explore by Kayak and if you have enough energy you can get all the way to the ocean about 2 miles away. You will often see turtles swimming up and down the canal and humming birds in the garden. Grab a ladder and pick a fresh coconut. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Trending-g147399-t2-Providenciales_Turks_and_Caicos.html
