5 Bedrooms with ensuite Bathrooms (Sleeps 10)

Located behind groves of tall shady trees, Sade offers wonderful seclusion yet it’s just 200 yards from the white sands of charming Smugglers Cove Beach, one of the prettiest on the island. This lovely property comprises a two-story Main House and a Guest Cottage which are connected by a garden walkway. The fully air-conditioned Main House has by bold accent walls in burnt orange, teal and aqua, original Caribbean art and Asian-influenced furnishings in teak and mahogany.

Just next door is the Guest Cottage, a charming structure with an air-conditioned bedroom, which has cable TV, VCR and a living room/kitchen. Two covered porches lead from both the bedroom and the living area. Set between the Main House and Guest Cottage is a curved sun deck and 20’ x 20’ pool furnished with cushioned teak lounge chairs. Privacy at the pool is provided by a screen of mature trees and landscaping.

Although conveniently located 5 minutes walking distance of Smugglers Cove, Sade is tucked into its own private world surrounded by genip, papaya, banana, cassava and coconut trees, and vibrant gardens full of colorful coleus and other tropical flora.

Sunset Point – Providenciales – Turks & Caicos

Aerial Providenciales Sunset Villa

4 Bedrooms and 5 Bathrooms (Sleeps up to 10)
Located at the tip of prestigious Ocean Point, this substantial house, with its high ceilings and very attractive décor, was built in the early 90′s. Set amid lush and colorful landscaping with coconut palms and masses of bougainvillea, hibiscus and frangipani, Sunset Point appears to be two houses though it is, in fact, only one. Built in two separate sections, which are connected by wrap around decks, this great house was designed for maximum privacy with the master bedroom in one building and the rest of the bedrooms in the other. And everywhere one looks is sublimely colored water.

Sunset Point’s design also incorporates the spectacular surroundings with each room facing the water and opening onto a covered deck. The daytime view of Sapodilla Bay’s beautiful pale turquoise water is rivaled only by the fantastic Caribbean sunsets later. From the large pool area, which has chaises longues and a table and chairs, stairs lead down to a dock on the bay for swimming. Within a three-minute walk is the lovely crescent shaped Taylor Bay Beach with its powdery white sand and shallow water and nearby tennis courts. Sunset Point is a wonderful house for a family or group of friends.

This Bahamian style house with gingerbread trim is built on three floors and is set amidst palm trees in a flower filled tropical garden.

From there steps lead down to a large terrace, pool and a gazebo with a sofa, coffee table and chairs. This very appealing house, with Georgia pine floors and good looking and comfy Tommy Bahama furniture, was designed so that soft tropical breezes constantly flow throughout. It was also designed for privacy as the bedrooms are all set apart.
