Our Typical Guests
Our guests truly define the heart of our business, and we’re privileged to be chosen by travellers who value the opportunity to spend time together, in a more intimate setting. As opposed to heading to a resort, renting your own place means securing your own private common areas—the pool, kitchen and living room come to mind—, and not having to share the space with strangers. It also means you won’t have to book 2 or 3 hotel rooms, and you get to manage things on your own time; a privilege independent and active travellers greatly appreciate.
So who chooses to stay at White Villas?
Our most popular clientele is families, and rightfully so. Getting everyone on schedule during ‘regular life’ can be enough of a hassle. The beauty of our villas lies in the ability to give everyone a bit more slack, sharing space that allows you to spend time together, while providing room for everyone’s mood and interests. For example, our open design concept allows parents in the kitchen, to watch their children playing in the pool. Want to invite grandparents, friends or a sitter along? We have a villa with separate poolside accommodations that gives additional space to host more guests, with extra breathing room.
Here are three reviews you can consult from past guests that came with their families:
AMAZING – We have 4 children who loved this place. There was LOTS of space for the 6 of us. The pool was kid-friendly too! We ate in the huge kitchen most times, but ate out some of the time too. Simon (the owner) was beyond friendly and accommodating. This was a winner of a spot – the beach is a 3 minute walk away. The modern furnishings and layout were beyond our expectations and the indoor / outdoor set up was super cool. We would return in a heartbeat. It was a real dream come true.

PERFECT FOR MY FAMILY – My husband and I were looking for a quiet retreat yet we also wanted to be minutes from Grace Bay for the sake of my teenagers . White Villas was perfect! It’s a brand new construction with lots of modern amenities. The beach was only a 3 minute walk away and it had miles of fine white sand. It had ideal conditions for kitesurfing (which my teens will do next time) or lazing on a beach chair with a good book. I could count on 1 hand the number of other people on the beach. You will need a car to get around if you want to go to other beaches or sightsee around the island. I also particularly enjoyed lounging on the bar stools in the pool with a cool drink. One of the best features of the Villa was the open concept. You never felt like you were inside. A truly memorable holiday.
GREAT HOLIDAYS IN TURKS – Just returned from spending NYE @ White Villas with our 4 sons ages 11,14,18, & 20. The home is beautiful- a modern masterpiece! Everything was neat, organized, & labeled which was much appreciated. Simon, the owner, was very knowledgeable and readily accessible. Access to virtually your own private beach was just a few minute walk away. House was well appointed with linens, towels, dishes, beach chairs, outdoor grill… really enjoyed our stay!

Browse any Instagram account featuring Turks & Caicos, and you’ll understand why we’re such a preferred destination for romance. We’ve hosted many couples since our opening, and they’ve appreciated the privacy and design of our villas, plus the proximity to quiet Long Bay Beach. Whether they’re active or on the quieter side, travelling à deux or sharing a couple’s getaway with other couples, all have enjoyed the value of a cozy villa experience, with the freedom to head out and discover the island.
THE PLACE TO STAY IN T&C – When my wife and I travel, we opt for boutique hotels. In Turks and Caicos that’s always meant staying in an oceanfront suite at the Gansevoort… but that’s all changed now that we discovered the White Villas. The architecture/decor/landscape is modern, open, private and has that unique “by-the-ocean vibe”. It does look as cool in real life as in the photos! Pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen better equipped than our suite at the Gansevoort, including a separate wine fridge, smoothie blender….and most importantly….a cocktail shaker! But what the White Villas provides that no hotel can is REAL privacy. Your OWN pool. A GRILL! Your OWN “Concierge”, Simon who is warm, gracious and very helpful. Rental SUV available from the property that is 25% cheaper than any local rate. A short stroll to Long Bay Beach…..which is far less occupied and just as pristine as Grace Bay. White Villas are private enough to feel special but only 5 mins to Coco Bistro and 10 to Grace Bay. There’s no need to ever know what time it is…because the pool is yours around the clock, no deadline for breakfast, ….and no housekeeper invading when you want to “chill”. Follow your own schedule (not the hotel’s!). White Villas is our “go-to” from now on.
100% RECOMMENDED – My wife, myself and another couple stayed here this past week and absolutely loved every minute. We stayed at Villa 1 and it is as nice as it looks in every picture. Simon greeted us and gave us a tour of the villa and… of the island. He gave us some options for things to do for the week and some instruction on places to go and see. The villa is well equipped and has many things you’ll need for the week. The location is great on Long Bay as you’re only 5 minutes away from Grace Bay and 5-10 minutes away from a lot of the great spots to eat and local attractions. We would 100% recommend staying at the White Villas and we are looking forward to coming back as soon as we can!
WONDERFUL HONEYMOON – Breathtaking, stunning, and extremely modern! Pictures do not do this property justice. My husband and I rented this villa for our honeymoon and we had a WONDERFUL experience. We spent the majority of the time in the pool. The owners were extremely generous and helpful. They definitely provided legendary service by going above and beyond our expectations. The house is a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – Long Bay! We will definitely return to this villa for future vacations! If you are heading to T&C, I highly recommend this property!!

GROUPS AND CELEBRATIONS
Villas are notorious for providing the best set-up for important get-togethers. First, they become easily accessible, when all members share in the rental investment. Second, they provide your group with the flexibility to design a celebration, schedule activities, or just do your own thing, without worrying about other guests and resorts guidelines. You get to master your moments. We’ve hosted groups that got together to kite, dive, SUP and swim. We’ve also helped celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other important milestones.
Travelling with a larger group? No problem. We designed our villa collection to be close enough for larger group getaways, where you can easily visit the neighbors, yet far enough for individual rentals to fully enjoy their privacy. Phases 3 and 4 will add new villas, making the collection even more interesting for larger gatherings.
PERFECT SETUP FOR OUR FAMILY – We just returned from our vacation and we were beyond pleased with our stay at White Villas. We had both Villa 1 & 2 for the week and it was the perfect setup for our large family. The villas are new, well maintained, perfectly equipped, and Simon was the perfect host. We enjoyed the beautiful pools and loved the way the kitchen/living area is an extension of the outdoors. Both of the villas are spacious and allowed us to enjoy family time together but also provided ample space to get away to relax alone if desired. The White Villas are perfectly located and close to the grocery store, Grace Bay, and the airport yet secluded enough that you feel the privacy and seclusion of an island getaway. The beach access is right across the street. We had the beach to ourselves when we were there which was really nice. Simon was kind enough to show us a few other beaches and set up a day of boating for us which was spectacular. The accommodations are amazing, as was the superior customer service that Simon provided from beginning to end.
BEST WEEK EVER – My husband and I have always wanted to go to T&C, so when planning our 20th anniversary celebration, we decided to focus on villa rentals so we could have our “own” piece of paradise during our stay. We were celebrating/traveling with another couple, so when deciding on a property, we all felt that White Villa 1 would be perfect for us. And, I must say, we ALL felt as though White Villa 1 was MORE than perfect…it ended up exceeding all of our expectations! From the moment we arrived, the charm of the villa, the beauty of the property, the warmth of the owners, the quiet location, all made for such an amazing experience. In fact, we were so blown away with the villa, that we spent the majority of our week enjoying our “home”. We truly felt we had everything that we needed at the White Villa and just enjoyed relaxing by/in the pool…and we all loved the open concept…just opened the garage doors &, voila, it was outdoor living at its best! The breeze was amazing and having a “private” beach just steps away from our front door was SO nice. Whenever we needed/wanted to head over to Grace Bay, it was a quick, less than 10-minute drive across the Island to the grocery store, restaurants, resorts, etc. so you do need a car if you want to explore Provo. We did visit both Grace Bay and Chalk Sound, which were both very nice; however, we preferred our more quiet side of Long Bay.
Most of all, we enjoyed communicating/working with owners who really love “their” Island, as well as their property, and always went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was comfortable as well as memorable…it was truly a trip of a lifetime for us.
MEMORABLE FAMILY EXPERIENCE – When you arrive and pull into the driveway, you see how beautiful the two White Villas are to the backdrop of the lush flowers, it is exactly as you see online and what you imagine in a tropical paradise. The architecture and modern design is amazing. You have everything you need to have an enjoyable time and experience – and we sure did!
The villa is gorgeous and really well appointed. Having the pool right off the house was perfect to dip in and out, make food and cocktails. The flow is perfect and the kitchen island is great to be able to prepare food/drinks while still being part of the party and conversation. The guest suite off the pool was ideal for privacy, and had amazing windows overlooking the pool, the kitchenette was a nice touch. The two bedrooms in the main house were a great size and gave the ability to spread out and unpack and not feel cramped at all.
Simon met us at the airport which was really nice and drove back to the villa with our luggage. He was a great resource to have available to give advice on beaches, restaurants and where to go and what to do. Since we arrived on Sunday and couldn’t buy any alcohol, Simon was kind enough to drop off a few local beers for us to try after a long day of travel. He also took one couple with us to a secluded beach for a great paddle boarding session, they had the entire beach to themselves. Small gestures and tips like this made it a memorable experience.
